My autumn essentials

Here in Norway there seems to be a time in autumn when wearing a jacket is too warm and wearing just a top is too cold. For weeks I have been leaving the house with a coat on and after a little while it got so warm I had to take it off… only to find myself freezing in no time again. What’s up with the weather here? It might be the air or simply the fact that I mainly seem to walk uphill around here, but I definitely needed to do something about it.

The solution to my little problem came in a shopping bag from Bik Bok. I got some cardigans which I found to be a good match for almost any kind of weather you can get around this season in Norway. They are really comfortable and – most importantly – not scratchy at all.

Knit wear

One of this season’s must-haves are plain knit sweaters in neutral colours – easily to match with jeans or skirts, sneakers or high heels.

I found my favourite one at H&M last weekend.

Basics

You don’t need to buy many clothes….if you get the right basics. It’s easy to make an outfit look good for any occasion if you mix and match with the right shoes, jewellery and accessories. This season I love grey, white and black with silver, gold or pearl jewellery.

In these photos I’m wearing a blazer from H&M, a top from Selected Femme, skinny jeans from Bik Bok and high heels from Buffalo London.

My necklace is from Topshop and my bracelets are from Primark.

Golden hour

The sun has started to set earlier now here in Norway. And in a few weeks, after a summer of long days and bright nights, it will get dark earlier than in most other parts of the world.

I watched the sun set on a small island nearby last night, soaking up the sun before the dark season comes.

Hola Sevilla!

Yesterday we spent all day in Seville. It was a 2.5 hour drive from Marbella but definitely worth it. It’s such a beautiful old city with lovely little streets and it’s full of flowers. I definitely have to go back there for longer some day.

Please tell me if you have any other tips about what to see here in Spain!

Lucky charms and lazy Saturdays

Don’t you think that some Saturdays are just made for sleeping late and having coffee in bed? That’s exactly what I did today after a night with friends and a BBQ on the balcony.

Before getting dressed up for a night out later I decided to just throw on some comfy clothes. I have always liked tops with slogans but now I have found my ultimate accessory: Jewellery with a message.

My new double necklace from H&M has one lavaliere with a horse shoe and one that says “lucky”.
