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.
I hope you guys had a sunny Sunday as well. xx
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.
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
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.
What is your favourite atumn accessory?
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!
It has become a little more grey here now. Still warm enough for a Norwegian summer I guess According to the weather I wore something with less colours yesterday.
My new sandals from H&M are really comfortable unlike some other strap toe sandals. In these I already danced all night – twice!
Did you know that sandals are the oldest known footwear of any kind by the way? (I know it’s a little nerdy but I sometimes get caught up in googling random things.)
No need to pay money for a salon pedicure when you can get it at home. I love these products for super soft summer feet: Pumice stone with nail brush and a loofah sponge.
My favourite nail polish is the Volume gloss by P2 in the colour 070 Funky Babe.
The weather in Norway is still amazing. It was hot and sunny all week and it’s the first time ever that I actually LIVE nearby a beach. But of course you can’t be sun-tanning and swimming 24/7. Today we went into town and walked along the harbour, looked at all the delicacies at the food festival and had a smoothie at Joe and the Juice. Have you checked it out yet? They make the most delicious juices. It’s healthy and fresh as well.
