Casually Smart

Casually Smart

I like it when my normal fashion rules and expectations are challenged — when I’m caught by surprise as I get up close to a piece of clothing and can actually see the details of the garment. The blazer I’m wearing today falls into this hidden surprise category; it has a traditional cut and colour, making it look […]

Neutrals // Black, grey and white

Neutrals // Black, grey and white

Like many budding fashionistas, I love wearing a neutral colour palette consisting of black, grey and white. There are many reasons for this — neutral shades are easy to match as they all go together, I look polished and effortless wearing monochrome outfits, and the colour scheme is appropriate for almost any occasion. Though I keep telling myself […]

Now, where’s my Harley?

Now, where’s my Harley?

When I wore this outfit to the cinema* last night, my friend commented that I was giving off some serious biker vibes, very different from my usual more classic looks. Since moving to Oslo, I’ve noticed that I often dress more rough and masculine than I did in Bergen. It might be my current job situation, where […]

Woolly navy & grey

Woolly navy & grey

Today’s outfit is all about navy and grey, and all about wool. Who worries about getting cold ankles from wearing cropped trousers — a tall woman’s best friend! — when the trousers are made of wool and you are wearing tights underneath (to prevent the itch)? I wanted to style my new Dr. Martens boots […]

Black & flared

Black & flared

Cold winter days call for ridiculously thick tights and skirts made of wool or other thicker materials. I got the heavy-knit viscose skirt that I’m wearing today several months back and it’s perfect for the current weather. With its flared bottom, however, I’ve found the skirt quite hard to style. If I wear something tight-fitting on […]

Museum Sunday // Astrup Fearnley

Museum Sunday // Astrup Fearnley

At the weekend — which was wet and cold, true to form lately — my visting friend and I went into town to visit the Astrup Fearnly Museum. It is located on Tjuvholmen by Aker Brygge, a gorgeously modern building of wood and steel designed by Renzo Piano, majestically overlooking the sea. We were supposed […]

Monochrome in navy

Monochrome in navy

On Saturday, my cropped cotton trousers were taken for a final spin before they are packed away for the season — it is just too cold to wear them in the winter. The outfit was inspired by the graphic pattern mixing that has been going on this summer, where it has been popular to wear […]

A magical evening in jungle print at the ballet

A magical evening in jungle print at the ballet

A dear friend is visiting from Bergen this weekend and she got us tickets for a Jiri Kylian ballet performance at the Norwegian Opera & Ballet — Den norske opera & ballett. This was the first time I attended a performance in the opera house — previously I’ve just made a quick visit to the foyer. […]

Army green and leather

Army green and leather

Every year, Norway’s national TV station, NRK, runs a big charity event and this year, the money is spent on building water wells in Africa under the supervision of Kirkens Nødhjelp. The fundraiser took place on Sunday and I was one of thousands of volunteers who walked from door to door collecting money from every […]
