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.

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.

Oversized scarf

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?

Moods of Norway

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.

I like how Moods of Norway always adds a little colourful detail, like this red seam on the back of the top.

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!

Au revoir tristesse

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!

Black and white

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.)
