Casually Pink

Tall Girl's Fashion // Styling grey jeans

No, I’m not sunburnt, though soon I might be! I’m leaving for Greece tomorrow and “I’m so excited, I just can’t hide it”.

A close friend has treated me to a week’s holiday in Chania, Greece. I feel so blessed to have such wonderful and supportive friends who go out of their way to help me out in this rather new Oslo phase of my life — Anett 2.0 is eternally grateful and promises to be very tidy, punctual and proactive for the duration of the holiday.

At heart, I’m a bit of a globetrotter, so not having been on holiday in over a year has given me a severe case of withdrawal symptoms. Seeing all my friends’ holiday photos on Facebook had me dangling on the edge, seriously considering robbing a bank to feel the sun on my face, sand under my feet, the Med around my ankles and a foreign language in my ears. But now I can abandon my heist plans and concentrate on packing my suitcase. Hurrah!

Tall Girl's Fashion // Stewart the toy fox terrier

Today’s outfit was worn on an overcast morning that turned into a gorgeously sunny day walking little Stewart, the toy fox terrier I’m getting to know. Rather than teaming the grey jeans with a white, black or grey top like most Scandinavian bloggers would, I decided to go for a punch of colour. Why go neutral when you can shine?!

    Hi, Anett!(I love how you spell your name, by the way!) I followed your link-up over at Friday Fashions @ http://www.jaymieashcraft.com. I really love your fashion style and your blog! I’m not really tall at all, but I really love that you live in Norway (I live in the Midwestern United States). I also go by the first name, Ann, but my full name is Annette….so we share similar names, too. Just spelled differently! Greece sounds like an amazing place to visit. Hope you are having a great time!!! Stop on over to my blog, if you get the chance.

    • What a nice comment, Ann! Yes, I spell my name Anett, as the -e in the traditional French Annette is pronounced in Norwegian (like Nike and Porsche), so Anette and Anett are two different names. People have mispelt my name my entire life and it really used to bug me when I was younger. It doesn’t help that my middle name is Barbara, from my British grandmother’s sister, which Norwegians don’t have a clue how to spell, let alone pronounce. I was called rabarbara, ie rhubarb, for most of my childhood… 😉

      I lived in the Midwest for almost three years — in Waukesha, WI. I really love all the lakes dotted throughout the state — great for cooling down in the hot summer months. It got freakishly cold in the winter, though, much colder than in Norway! And Americans ask us if we have polar bears in the streets! (Favourite question when I work at Walt Disney World in Florida). Thanks for stopping by, Ann, and congrats on your incredibly cool weathervane! xoxo Anett

  • I’m loving this combination of gray jeans and bright top! I have been having trouble getting on board with the gray jeans trend, but this outfit may have just persuaded me to give gray jeans a chance! Enjoy your Greek escapade!

    • I’m so happy that I could inspire you to give grey jeans a try, Shelbee! I think they look so cool and are cooler-looking than black jeans, which end up this unflattering dark grey after only a few washes anyway. Thanks for visiting! xoxo Anett

  • Cute top!! I love the jeans. Thanks so much for linking up with me. 🙂

    • Thanks, Jaymie! Thanks for hosting the linkup and have a great weekend. xoxo Anett
