Not that it was anywhere near to warm enough for wearing short sleaves when I took these pictures, but I really wanted to show you this baby pink, silky top that I got from Topshop recently.
I like that it is so minimal and yet has a special detail on the back, which makes it perfect for any occasion.
Do you have a favourite piece in your wardrobe that you like to wear anytime and anyplace?
I think January is officially the coldest month in most European countries. While we had a really mild December here in Norway, it is getting really chilly now with minus temperatures.
In my opinion there is no better way to get through this weather than with the right accessories – that keep you warm and look good.
That is why I love my new reindeer gloves!
Over the past few months I have often been reaching for rather masculine looking T-Shirts, even from my boyfriend’s wardrobe. And no, not only for chilling on the sofa, but to actually combine with my daily outfit. I think a baggy top with super tight pants can look really cool and laid-back.
Some weeks ago my friend, photographer Theresia Pauls, asked me to wear this lovely red T-Shirt from Grana for a photo shoot. Of course I was thrilled!
I really like Theresia’s style because of the vivid colours and brightness. And red lipstick and top were perfect for a grey winter day in Norway.
Recently one of my wardrobes favourites has been my new top from Gina Tricot.
I have always loved tops with messages and the Gina Tricot ones are particularly comfy to wear and easy to match for any occasion.
I have worn it with high heels on nights out and with sneakers and jeans at daytime.
In this case I have chosen something in between: A black skirt and oversized cardigan with medium heel ankle boots.

As many of you know already, I am a big fan of all kinds of leggings. My latest addition to my collection are these back leggings with faux leather details from Calzedonia. Here I combined them with a classic white blouse and semi-high ankle boots. But what I like about these pants is that you could also wear them with a plain T-shirt or an oversized sweater and sneakers.
…and by that I am not only referring to the brand my sweater is from. Everything actually is hunky dory on a sunny autumn day like today We had lunch outside and it was so warm that I wished I was wearing a t-shirt instead. I wouldn’t mind a little more of that summer weather next week.
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.
The day I bought my new sneakers I was actually looking for some black leather ankle boots for fall. In one of the shoe stores I saw some New Balance and thought why not quickly try them on – just to see how they look. I had always liked them but never owned any so far cause I found my pair of white Converse would be enough for the sneaker section in my closet.
I changed my mind as soon as I wore these very comfortable and surprisingly warm (therefore perfect for fall!) pair of New Balance that I now call my own.
I just love them! Maybe those leather boots can wait a bit longer
Having lived here in Norway for about six weeks now, I had some time to explore my new city and stores. I thought I’d a top 10 list of my favourite fashion shops here in Stavanger.
You can also check out the shopping guide I made for stay.com, a very cool website with shopping, sightseeing and food tips for cities all over the world.
Breigata 18, 4006 Stavanger
Cinnamon is a store located in an old renovated building in the centre of Stavanger that is specialised on exclusive international as well as leading Norwegian fashion brands. Apart from clothes you can also get accessories and shoes. The two floor shop has very friendly staff who pay a lot of attention to details and decoration.
Verksgaten 1, 4007 Stavanger
Selected was launched in 1997 for mens wear only. The rather new women’s sortiment gives you a wide variety of clothes for any occasion. You can find basics with eye-catching details as well as very feminine dresses in different colours. Selected Femme and Homme are both to be found in the same store, located in the centre of Stavanger.
Klubbgata 11, 4013 Stavanger
Most clothes at Monki’s have eye-catching patterns or messages. Illustrattions play a big role in Monki’s collections: You can see the prints in everything from T-Shirts to accessories. If you pick one of the rather plain monochrome items you will still find a striking detail or unique cut to it.
Breigata 8, 4006 Stavanger
The Stockholm based brand Acne has a multidisciplinatory approach due to founder’s Jonny Johansson’s interest in art, contemporary culture, photography and architecture. Acne has men’s and women’s fashion including denim, shoes and accessories.
Kirkegata 25, 4006 Stavanger
Nola is a small shop in the centre of Stavanger, selling not only clothes but also decoration articles. Basic woolen cardigans and jumpers are available just as well as skirts and dresses suitable for both business and festive occasions.

The swedish brand Filippa K concentrates on simple and pure design with timeless cuts and colours. All clothes are of a high quality and are effortless to wear. The Filippa K store in Stavanger underlines the concept of the brand: Bright, cool and yet friendly atmosphere with very helpful staff.

Moods of Norway’s concept is to design fashion for happy people and this shows in every item, be it clothes, shoes or accessories. The colourful collection includes screaming patterns as well as sophistocated dresses or suits in pastel colours. Both men’s and women’s wear are to be found in the same store.
Breigata 12, 4006 Stavanger
Kjoledamen has a very unique style where you can get dresses like back in the 1940s, 50s and 60s. Think polka dots and petticoats! This era is more timeless than you might think as the store advertises on their website that you can find dresses for work, nightlife and everyday occasions.
9. Fair Play
Østervåg 37, 4006 Stavanger
At Fair Play you can find clothes, accessories and decoration that are environment friendly and support people in developing countries. Unique design and high quality!
Domkirkeplassen 2 , 4006Stavanger
I know it’s pretty standard. But let’s be honest, ladies – what would we be without H&M? I think they simply have everything you need to dress well at any occasion.
I love living right by the sea! You get the most amazing views and can watch beautiful sunsets. My walk into the city center leads me along the waterfront and a little harbour with sailing boats.
But as autumn is close, it gets windier and a lot colder by the water. I found the perfect solution to keep myself warm: My new oversized scarf from H&M. I can wrap it around my shoulders or wear it around my neck depending on how chilly it is.
Yesterday I took a walk along the sea by the lighthouse in Randaberg. It was really windy and for the first time this year I had to wear a scarf again.
Of course I’m a little sad that summer is over. But at the same time I think it’s nice being by the sea in this kind of weather when the wind is sweeping through your hair and the air smells of salt water.
Today my outfit matches the weather: Grey! Don’t you think that clouds always seem twice as bad after coming back from a beach holiday?
My favourite top never fails to make me feel a little better though. It’s from Moods of Norway, a brand that usually creates fashion in the craziest colours. I truly believe this is the only grey item the ever produced
I love how I can combine it with comfortable sneakers just as well as heels. Today I chose the laid-back version.
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!
Yesterday I spent all day at Lydbølger, a festival at Bore Beach. It is the second time it takes place here in Norway and includes surfing, kite surfing, yoga and many different bands. Nice idea and also a nice wordplay, it means “sound waves”. We were really lucky to have such sunny weather.
Now I’m off to more beach and sun cause I’m flying to Spain
Only 3 days until I am going on a holiday to Marbella. I can’t wait. Has anyone of you ever been there? I was hoping to get some tips from you on what to see, where to go out and where to do some shopping.
What do you do when you finish dinner and realise that you don’t have any dessert in the house? I just had to go to the supermarket around the corner and get some sweets. The Norwegians call it Smågodt, the Germans gemischte Tüte and the English Pick & Mix. You chose your own sweets and put them in an old-fashioned little bag. I love this!
I forgot how great Accessorize was – until I saw these socks on someone else’s feet! Don’t you just love animal socks? They made me check out the Accessorize website today and I found amazing jewellery, bags and swimwear. I think I will stop by the store tomorrow.
