Although there is no so much snow yet, Oslo really is winterwonderland and each day I am loving this city more and more. I think I might stay here a bit longer as planned :-). These are actually the last days before heading back to Belgium for the holidays, luckily I will be back soon in my beloved city. 

Today we had a julelunsj (christmaslunsj) with friends and I decided to go for a total greyish look. I love to put together different shades of the same color, gets you a lovely effect. What have you been up to?

 Pictures unknown. Expect for number 3. and 5. - Hanneli Mustaparta

Hereby I include some of the pictures which form part of my giant "inspiration album". 
I am, and for many years have been, a giant fan of mustard.I think it looks great within every season. In the last picture you can see Hanneli Mustaparta, whom I find extremely inspirational. Het style is flawless and she shoots the most beautiful pics :).

Norwegian showroom

I was so curious to see what Spring/Summer 2012 had to offer that I was a bit sad that I wasn't able to go to the belgian pressdays. Fortunately, I could read how it was on various belgian blogs :). Still I was pretty happy to recieve an invitation from Patrikkson Communication to visit the Don Donna & Morris pressday and to take a look in their beautiful showroom. 

I've collected some of my favourite pieces of what I saw in the showroom. I really liked the designs of the Don Donna handbags and the Designers Remix platforms (although I would never be able to walk on them)  but I was completely stunned by this beautiful Marimekko dress. We have an important wedding coming up in August and I could already imagine myself wearing this crazy, flowery dress. Do you like it?

Tusen takk for invitasjonen Pia og Patriksson Communication.

After a wonderful winter weekend in Oslo, I am happy to spend my sunday night in. It has been busy but oh so nice. I'm falling in love with this city, it's vibe, the people and the amazing nature. 

Since we went christmas shopping, I picked a simple outfit. Very soon I'll show you what I found: the perfect christmas outfit :).

Ten things I love


I've seen this kind of posts on several blogs and I always love to read them.
Therefore I decided to do one myself. Hope you enjoy it just as much as I do :).

1. Antes de amarte amor. Nada era mío. 
 Pablo Neruda, subject of my master thesis and poetic mastermind has been and still is an incredible source of inspiration for me. He is the only one who is able to put into words what I feel for my loved ones. One of my biggest dreams - still to be accomplished - is walking the Pablo Neruda track in Chile.
2. Who doesn't love fresh sheets? 
3. The sophisticated, elegant, easygoing and extremely feminine style of Harry Potter actress Clémence Poesy is magnificent. Since she seems to be so modest, and even a bit shy, she is so much more realistic then all these other celebrity- stars. 
4. In winter I drink fresh tea day in, day out. 
5. A few weeks before I left for Norway, my oldest brother and I where asked to model for the new jewellery collection of a dear friend. I could easily imagine myself wearing this necklace when I get married. She is just gorgeous! 
6. This one could be the one I admire the most. The pureness of Asia, the simplicity of Budhism, the hopes and dreams of people having to live with absolutely nothing, their laughter and hopes and dreams should be an example for all off us.
7. Oh yes, also I fell for the Céline bag. In nude leather that is.
8. This blurry cell phone picture captures a lovely, crazy, chatty evening with friends in Antwerp. The simple things in life. 
9. Empty beaches and coconuts in Asia. My heaven on earth.
10. I'm a big fan of Javier Bardem and Pénelope Cruz, as actors ánd as a couple. Their performance in Viki, Cristina, Barcelona was awesome and did you see what a cute baby boy they have? :)



Sofie Bly

How gorgeous are these shoes? Mainly the beautiful sandals/wedges on the first picture. 
Sofie Bly is the designer of these simple creations. As you can tell from the minimalistic silhouette of the shoes, she has her roots both in Norway and in Sweden. Scandinavia has been her inspiration to create this collection called "Circles" and I can assure you: Scandinavia can be pretty inspirational :).

Everyday when the sun rises, I feel like I have to go out and absorb as much vitamin D as possible. Sunrise is around 10 and she already dissapears around 3.30. Lucky for me the city is turning into winter wonderland with candles, lights, christmas trees, football fields beeing turned into huge skating fields and so much more :). It is just the snow that won't come and I kinda have the feeling the norwegians are really wanting Oslo to be white.

So, just a short post of todays outfit visiting a norwegian "julemarked" in Drammen. 
I am crazy in love with my warm new hat. Makes me feel like a real norwegian ;-).

ps: It is already freezing in Oslo and I suspect the snow will be here soon, brrr.

Sailor chique

Sacha shoes, Scapa skirt, Wood shirt, Rue Blache skarf, Morrocon bag, Swatch Watch, Bellerose Belt

Since we decided to discover Oslo's harbour this sunday, I thought it would be nice to wear my new striped shirt from Wood. I felt like a sailor taking these pics :). This pretty red skirt is a Scapa one, a shop I usually wouldn't enter but I just couldn't resist this one. 

It is getting really cold here and darkness strikes around 4 PM. I leave for work when it's dark and when I am one my way home it is dark again. Strange feeling.

Did you have a nice weekend?


Hiking in Nordmarka

Only 15 minutes from the city center of Oslo, you can find a magnificent area to hike called Nordmarka. Because I am a big fan of everything active outdoors like hiking, backpacking, making my own fire in front of the tent, ... this place is heaven on earth for me. Since we arrived a month ago we have been up there almost every weekend and I always feel so calm and extremely happy when I'm back home. I know there is nothing fashionable about my hiking gear but I didn't want to keep this pictures from you. The nature here is almost unbelievable and always makes me feel tiny and calm. The best remedy after a week of hard work.

Going for a stroll through the city

Ikks boots, Zara Jeans, Sessún shirt, Swatch watch.

Today was a sunny, lovely day in Oslo (yes, it is already dark here, so it feels the day is almost at his end :() and since we have a day off on Wednesdays we decided to go for a walk through the city. So, I wore a simple outfit which definitely made me feel really comfortable. I just adore this Sessún shirt. 

Hope you guys had a lovely day, let me know what you think!

1. An outfit in which I felt extremely comfortable.
2. Champagne.
3. My boyfriends extremely lovely boots. Perfect for the Norwegian winter.
4. Thé perfect Christmas dress from COS.
5. Statement jewellery at PFW.
6. Mie, a cutie from Vietnam.
7. Juliette Binoche: what a woman. Remember "The English Patient"?



 Cos- sweater, Sacha shoes, Pieces bag, United colors of Benetton coat.

So, finally an outfit post! This oversized Cos sweater is definitely one of my favourite pieces this autumn. I really like the androgyn, oversized, masculine trend sweeping through fashion land. I do always need a feminin touch, that's why I tried to wear my hair a bit '60 like :).

Hope you like it,
