Another week, another outfit post as part of this month’s ‘Dressing the Bump’ series. This week, it’s all about that lightweight, summer boho dressing… We’re in the height of the season, and I for one have invested heavily in a variety of soft and feminine dresses – which also just happen to be the perfect piece of clothing when your bump is growing rapidly by the day…

MY SUMMER HOLIDAY PACKING GUIDE IN 1-2-3

July 12, 2017
travel (8 of 14)

It’s holiday season, which means a lot of packing, organising and planning… Last year was my busiest year of travelling, visiting places such as Venice, Crete, New York, L.A, Maldives, to only mention a few. Which meant I really had to overcome my hate of packing, and rather try to embrace and master it. Which in true fairness and towards the end of the year, I can (kind of) say that I’ve done. Being fortunate enough to go on so many trips – be it for pleasure or work – means that you quickly get to identify what you actually tend to wear the most when it comes to your wardrobe, what extras you really need to bring with you, and finally – conquering that holiday wash bag with all those key necessities…

DRESSING THE BUMP #2 | BODY ENHANCING

July 10, 2017
IMG_4033

So from last week´s easy breezy chic all-black look – to something a bit more casual this week, and certainly, a lot more bump enhancing! As I was saying before; I am not usually one for bodycon dresses and styles – however things can certainly change – and funnily enough, now that I am pregnant, I am actually more into the tight shapes than ever! I mean, the bump is there, and it’s pretty special and beautiful – so why not show it off from time to time?  Continue Reading

As so many of my readers seems to be interested in maternity style and curious to see how I am currently styling up the pregnancy – I thought I would do a little mini style series for you this July! So every week this month I will be sharing a different styled up look and shape that could work with a growing bump. This week it´s all about the loose-fitting, breezy and all-black chic outfit – which I so often tend to go for anyways; and even more so now that I am nearly 27 weeks pregnant…  Continue Reading

Whether you’re planning on a city holiday or a beach escape this summer – nailing that go-to holiday outfit, in the shape of the perfect easy dress, sandals, bag and sunnies, is pretty key. Naturally, come summer time, one tends to gravitate more towards colour and prints (I know I do!), but you really can´t beat the perfect LBD, which is lightweight and easy to wear, for sightseeing or thrown on after after a long day bronzing in the sun – combined with easy-to-style accessories…

THE SWIMWEAR SHAPES I AM PACKING FOR IBIZA

May 26, 2017
beach (22 of 26)

I have never been a natural sun or swim frolicker, who runs around on the beach and confidently jumps in sea. I guess I´m like many other ladies – not necessarily the happiest when I am wearing swimwear, and for far too many years I have let my various body hang ups, put a damper on amazing running around on the beach/jumping in the sea-moments. Funnily enough, now that my body is naturally bigger than ever, growing that special little bump – I am finding myself more confident and carefree then I have ever been – I mean, what else can you do, then love and embrace your new shape? And it´s actually made it fun to put together my swimwear looks for my upcoming holiday to Ibiza next week – finding some really great (and flattering, most importantly!) swimwear shapes to fit.

Now that many of you are most likely in the loop in regards to my very exciting pregnancy news a few weeks ago – you might start to notice some small changes in my monthly favourites; from what beauty products I need (dehydrated and pigmented skin, anyone!?), and some changes in the fashion and lifestyle faves… This month is quite predominant with shoes, as it´s been the easiest thing I can still buy and which I know will (hopefully) continue to fit for the rest of the season, some must-have beauty essentials to tackle my ´new` skin, the perfect red dress for my upcoming holiday to Ibiza, and some more sparkly delights…

From someone that´s not been into overly feminine dresses (or dresses in general) – and more often than not, always opting for separates instead – I am all over it at the moment! As I am sure you have noticed from April and May´s blog posts! And especially now that I am pregnant (and growing by the day), dresses have been so easy to throw on, teamed with a leather jacket, blazer or oversized khaki jacket.

THE MAN REPELLERS

givenchy (1 of 13)

There comes a point in any relationship, that one just has to stop caring what your other half thinks of your style. Don´t get me wrong, I do care, and I do get affected by my husband´s less than enthusiastic response when I choose to wear anything too ´fashion`. But as I was saying, there just comes that point when I find a piece that I love so much, that I couldn’t give a flying monkeys whether he likes them or not (no offence, hubby). The fashion piece in question? The Givenchy Chain Mules – which let´s face it, are totally man repelling – but then again, what does it matter?

POPS OF RED

…or rather, one pop of red, courtesy of J.W.Anderson´s ´Pierce` bag which has gathered a bit of a cult status this past year. And I mean, who could resist such a beautiful bag, in this bright shade of red? I mean red is just everywhere at the moment; I dare to ask, is red becoming the new black? Because it kinds of goes with anything (right?).

HIPPY CHILD AT HEART

April 28, 2017
IMG_5830

…I mean, kind of anyways. As much as my style is pretty classic and clean most of the time; come summer season and I am all about breaking out of my shell, leaving the mounds of black and grey behind, and experimenting with colour and prints. During the spring and summer months, I definitely tend to switch from my regular ´Scandi-style`, playing around with more colours, prints and textures. So I guess you could say that I am a hippy child at heart. I love anything embroidered and resembling from the 70s – so naturally, this perfect midi dress from Studio by Preen via Debenhams, pulled right on those heart strings.

SUMMER EVENT DRESSING WITH SELFRIDGES

April 24, 2017

´Tis the season, for all those dreamy summer events, with weddings, races and al fresco soirees… And as much as I love it, the pain is always the same, every single year… What to wear? I try not to go overboard and buy a new outfit for every event; but I also don´t want to always resort to the same dresses on rotation every season. Hence when springtime arrives, I tend to add 2-3 new outfits into the mix, injecting some fresh new styles into my more formal wardrobe collection… I have several weddings coming up, so I headed to my go-to destination for dresses and smart outfits, Selfridges, and managed to score the perfect stylish, yet soft and feminine summer outfit (the ideal combination).  Continue Reading

A SUMMER WARDROBE TWO-PIECE

April 19, 2017

Pink is all the rage this summer – from bright pastels, shades of dark fuchsia to dusty pink (my personal favourite). Granted, pink can be a tricky colour, and not everyone´s cup of tea; with the risk of looking too girly or feminine. But when I spotted this perfect two piece linen suit from Tu Clothing – the ideal investment for the summer, be it for any upcoming events or just as a smart day-to-day alternative – it was love at first sight… With the more relaxed androgynous fit – combined with a muted soft pink, it pretty much ticks all the right boxes for me (not to mention it being an absolute steal).  Continue Reading
