HOW I STYLE DENIM ON DENIM

How to dress for the hockey-rink is always a challenge, I mean: I love to dress, that is no secret, but I also really hate to freeze and I freeze easily. And some rinks are som cold that I can`t start to bescribe how cold.


So trousers like jeans are a must, not only for rinks bur for the Norwegian (not) summer weather as well.


Flats are another must, sometimes it can be a rather long walk from the parking lot to the arena + high heels and stairs like everywhere inside the rink is not a good combo.


A cross-body bag is the bag I normally wear when I`m tending hockey-games, great to have my hands free to cheering, which I do - a lot - too much if you ask my nearest and dearest....


Of course I wear a thick jacket as well, it is ugly but practical and not suitable for pictures.


But red lipstick, my new bestfriend Rudy Woo, is always welcome to come with me to a game, and she does as often as possible.

HOW I STYLE A DRESS OVER JEANS

I am not going to mention the weather in Oslo, all I will say is: did summer forget about us?


So how it solve the "want to wear a dress, but don`t want to freeze my behind off" -issue?

 
Right, by wearing a dress over trouser.
 

 
I can`t wait to fly off to Spain at the end of this month. We are in Spain every summer, but I have never taken the blog with me. But I will do that this time, we are only staying there for a short week, but I will wear clothes every day so why not...

HOW I STYLE EMBROIDERY/#iwillwearwhatilike link-up

I went through everything in my closet to find something to wear for this weeks link-up, and I found this sweater.


It is actually the only piece of clothing I own with some kind of embroidery, no need to say embroidery is not my cup of tea.


But since I had this sweater I will join in this week as well.


Gray is a colour I do wear a lott, but gray on gray can be a bit too... gray... so I styled the sweater with these wide culottes. Not that gray and black is very colourful, but the sweater has a tone of gray that is not easy to match to other colours, so I used the colour of the embroidery to build the rest of the outfit.


A gray and black outfit kind of match the weather we have in Oslo these days. I`m looking forward to a mini-vacation to Spain in the end of August. Anyway, to make my gray and black outfit a bit more exciting I added a couple of earrings and a clutch in a bright colour.


So this was me yesterday.

HOW I STYLE FOR A ROAD TRIP

On sunday we drove our youngest son to a hockey camp about one hour north of Oslo and on the way home we stopped by a lake to take these pictures.


I made the culottes I`m wearing. I had a pair of trousers I didn`t wear much, but I loved the laidback look, so I just cut them off and voila! A pair of culottes. And culottes I do like.


I`m normally not very black and white, but I wanted to wear this top with a zipper in the back and after all I was just dressing for a road trip so I thought I`d better keep the whole outfit a bit toned down.


The sandals I bought at a market in Italy several years ago. I think they`re kind of funny looking, but I love them.


I`m wearing a white singlet under the top, but I think it would nice to wear a singlet in a different colour under it with the zipper open all the way, or maybe over a dress in a bright colour. I will try that another time, for sure.


And a black and white clutch and I`m ready for a road trip, which I actually spent in the backseat, my 14 year old son is like 15 cm taller than me so he`s allowed to take the passenger's seat when my husband is driving.

HOW I STYLE FOR A DATENIGHT

Our apartment is chaotic right now, we are painting all the walls and yesterday our refrigerator broke down. No refrigerator, no food, so we went out for dinner yesterday. Eating at restaurants in Oslo is really expensive, for example, a glass of wine, about £ 10... No need to say, we don`t do it very often, so when we do I really enjoy it.


Anyway, expensive or not, this is what I wore. I found this skirt on sale at Zara. I love the length and volume, and I think the pattern is kind of cute.


With that said, I love every piece of clothing I find that I can style with orange. So when I can wear both a orange longsleeved t-shirt and my orange fringed heels, I`m in heaven actually.


And for a night out a jacket is required so my denimjacket is always a lifesaver.


A gold clutch to top it off, and I`m ready to go! In the chaos at home I couldn`t find my camera, so I had to borrow my youngest sons pocketcamera. My husband is not used to using it, so sorry for the poor quality of the pictures (and for the date and time...)

HOW I STYLE THE OFF SHOULDER SHIRT/#iwillwearwhatilike link-up

My DIY off shoulder shirt, I am so pleased with it. I like that it has a lot of volume, that makes it so comfortable.


The three coloured stripes makes it easy to style with other colours.


For this look I matched the shirt with my navy highwaisted shorts. I do like wearing shorts, and I like it when the shorts goes half way down my thighs, any shorter would be too short, I reckon.


I don`t have any preferences when it comes to what kind of shoes to wear with shorts, but I do find that high heels with shorts can sometimes be tricky. It can very fast give a vulgar look, and that`s not what I am aiming for.

`
So wearing a off shoulder shirt together with a shorts, I chose to style them with sneakers, so my beloved Stan Smith`s went for yet another spin. Please notice the broomstick on the floor; I am some kind of housewife, you see.....NOT!


Who says a toiletry bag can`t be used as a clutch?

HOW I STYLE THE RED OFF-SHOULDER DRESS/#iwillwearwhatilike link-up

I started my summer vacation on monday, I`m having 14 days off work, and I`m spending them at home.


We usually travel to Spain for the summer, but this year we had to change our plans. But never the less I still get dressed, and this is how I style the red off-shoulder dress from H&M which every other lady seems to own.


Red together with gold is always a good idea, so I styled the dress with my gold flipflops and a gold clutch,


The dress is something in between off-shoulder and cold shoulder, I think it`s more off-shoulder. I`m not into cold shoulder, it`s just something about the holes in the sleeves that just don`t beccome me.


I use a strapless bra with this dress, I hate it when you can see the straps, and because this dress has a strange cut I couldn`t wear a regular bra. More about my and bras here.


The weather in Oslo is not all bad these days, so I hope I can do some sunbathing, I would really like that. I LOVE THE SUN!!

HOW I STYLE MIXED PATTERNS/#iwillwearwhatilike link-up

I`m sorry Catherine, but this is as far as I go in mixing patterns.


I am actually mixing stripes with stars, way out of my comfort zone.


I kept the colours down to gray and black, I mean we`re talking about mixing patterns here!



This will not be a every day thing for me, I am not into mixing patterns. I know some ladies who looks GREAT in a pattern mix. I am not one of those ladies.

HOW I STYLE MIXED PATTERNS/#iwillwearwhatilike link-up

Here I am, just walking towards my husband who happens to be taking pictures of me.


At this point I had been out for about 12 hours, I just want to mention it because my hair looked better when I left home.


Mixing what patterns, you say? Stripes and dots, of course.



I am way out of my comfort zone, I don`t mix patterns, ever! Although I can appreciate dots with stripes, they are hardly patterns in my book.


The white jeans is perfect in chilly summer weather, it`s just that I can wear them one day, than I have to wash them. I am hopeless like that.
