Cherry blossoms

Wearing Vintage Etsy jumper & jeans// Grenson Emma Brogues

The cherry blossoming is upon us in Bergen, and wow - it's so beautiful. Especially this place, in the tree where I'm sitting. It's standing all alone in a closed courtyard, and you'll only find it if you know where (or stumble upon it). Can you guess where it's at?

Fluro accents

Wearing Vintage jacket & skirt// River Island neon panel skirt// Lucrin briefcase// Grenson Brogues

Out and about browsing apartments with my boyfriend - I think it's about time to get our own place where I can decorate and paint like a madwoman. Also, I'd like to dedicate more space for my wardrobe, the clothes are like my babies after all!

Combining blue and orange

 HM blue suede jacket// Simone Rocha leather brogues

I came across these stockings in Oslo a while ago, and I really like how they match my blue jacket. The tangerine shade of orange is wonderful. I'm also trying to soften up my semi-new Simone Rocha brogues, they are really narrow and painful to wear - so I hope they'll be worn in soon. It's saturday and I'm enjoying the sunshine, how will you spend your day off?

Roksanda Ilincic Resort 2015

I'm in love with Roksanda Ilincic's resort collection for SS15. She's a genious, the way she uses space and colors intrigues me every time, and I'll easily name her one of my favourite designers.

New additions for my spring wardrobe, and some tips on choosing your seasonal palette

Vintage Levis and vintage gloves from Etsy

I've put quite a lot of planning into my spring wardrobe this year, and I've decided to go with a palette consisting of lemon, lilac and frosty blue - and white loafers which I'll show you later. When I plan a season (or try to), I like to use Adobe Kuler, or Adobe color CC which it's now called. This program guides you on how to play with colors, whether it's monochrome, complimentary or triade.

This is an example of how I create and save palettes for each season. If you'd like to try for yourself, see Adobe color CC here:

New spring jacket

Suede jacket: HM/ Dress: HM/ Backpack: FoA

Found this beautiful jacket at the salesrack in Oslo. Sometimes H&M really makes some special things I think. I had two boxes that needed to be ticked for the perfect spring coat; 1. blue, 2. short. Voilà!

New designer crush: Novis

I really really like Novis playful shapes and prints. The colorpalette for AW15 is beautiful, and eventhough I should be checking out summer/spring garments - I'm definitely a winter fashion type of girl, who will be keeping her eyes on Novis for next season!

Style inspiration: UK blogger Helena from Bellsfashion

Unfortunately it's not very often you stumble across something truly unique in the blogosphere. Many bloggers tend to look a like, and often new bloggers copy established bloggers to get followers. People tend to follow what they know, and it can be tricky to get outside ones comfort zone - both as a blogger and a reader. 

I like to think of blogs the way they were originally intended to be; an objective - a non influenced diary or creative outlet. That's the feeling I got when I stumbled across Helena's blog - a fresh breath of uniqueness.

My very first selfmade dress!

I've spent the past 14 days constructing this dress, and I've invested a massive amount of hours in it. It's very time consuming learning yourself to sew via YouTube! Every single time I second guessed myself I had to see whether there was a video with the correct solution. Usually the only way you'll ever learn to sew is by failing - again and again and AGAIN. Which I did so many times. I even made this dress two times in a different fabric before I made it in this fabric, which I bought in Paris. I just didn't trust myself enough to start of with the finest fabric - thank god I had that much insight!

Either way, I'm planning on sewing a lot this year - there will be more exciting garments soon!
