HOW I STYLE PASTELS/#iwillwearwhatilike - link up

The #iwillwearwhatilike - link up goes on, thanks to the wonderful Catherine over at Not Dressed as Lamb. This week it is pastels.

 
Pastels are really not my colour, not any pastels. I can`t wear them up to my face, but I pulled out this skirt for this weeks link up.
 
 
My vintage Halston scarf matches the lilac skirt perfectly and because it`s more gray than pastel I can wear it.
 
 
 
My Stan Smith`s were on yesterday due to wearing heels for the wedding on Saturday, 13 hours of standing and dancing in those heels made it necessary to wear Sneakers yesterday. I do wear a lot of heels but I can`t remember the last time my feet hurt so much the next day....
 
 
Skirt - very old
T-shirt - Monki
Cardigan - H&M
Sneakers - Adidas
Scarft - Halston
 
 Talk to you later!

HOW I DRESS FOR A WEDDING

The wedding on Saturday was so great, great food, great people and a great party!

 
 
 
 
 
And I got to wear my beautiful pink dress, pink heels, bling bling clutch, pink nails and a kind of tiara. Just a shame the evening had to end.
 
THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL!!!!

HOW I STYLE THE FLORAL SKIRT

I`m still in love with my New template, there`s some bits and pieces I will change along the way, but the page is now very me.

Now down to business, clothes!

 
I found this lovely skirt in a vintage store last weekend and it has the floral pattern I like, it has to be kind of messy not neat with the same pattern all over, does that make sense at all?
 
 
I wanted to wear my flower heels with the skirt, so I did.
 
 
 Because I`m wearing flowers on both the skirt and the shoes, I desided to tone it down with a monochrome t-shirt.
 
 
And there`s always room for a statment-necklace.
 
 
Looking at my outfit it just occured to me that all three items are secondhand and that`s a good feeling.
 
 
Tomorrow I`m attending one of my best friends wedding, hope I get to take some pictures.

NEW TEMPLATE AND HOW I STYLE MY STAN SMITH`S

I finally got around to changing my template and I`m very pleased and look forward to sharing my posts with you with this wonderful template. Thank you very much Pipdig!

I know I`m like several years behind everybody with the Stan Smith`s. They`ve been on my wishlist for some time, but my love for shoes always make me buy heels, it`s so boring to buy sensible shoes. But these babies is both sensible and cool. I went for the ones with navy because I know I will wear them a lot with jeans.


So far I like them a lot and I hope they will stay boxfresh for a while. Today I styled them with white cut-off jeans, a white shirt and a long navy blue vest.




And to go with that a blue necklace.



I`m so happy with how great my blog looks, I can`t stop smiling!




Tomorrow I will wear a dress or a skirt, I have not worn dresses all week and that`s not like me at all.

Jeans - Sand
Shirt and necklace - H&M
Vest - Marni at H&M
Sneakers - Adidas


Talk to you later!

HOW I STYLE FOR 17TH OF MAY CELEBRATION

You have to be Norwegian to understand the meaning of our contitution day. In 1814 we got our own constitution, and we have been celebration our minds out every year since (exept the war years 1940 - 1945). I think it`s a nice tradition, everybody is out in the streets waving their flags, singing 17th of May songs and eating all the icecream we can handle. 

 

If you own a bunad (a national dress) this is the day to wear it. I unfortunally don`t have a bunad, so this year I went for a red vintage skirt.

 
Because I carry a Norwegian flag around with me all day, I always try to choose one of the colours in our flag as the main colour of my outfit.
 
 
 
So red, white or blue, then...
 



 
Together with my vintage skirt, I wore a plain white T-shirt, white pumps and a white bucket-bag.
 

 
I styled the outfit with gold accessories and a white hat with a red ribbon. Never a 17th of May without a hat, that`s a rule I made for myself and I never break it. And a big, warm, red shawl... it`s Norway after all, in spring we can experience four seasons in a day!
 

It was a great 17th of May, today it is back to work in another outfit.
 
 Skirt - vintage
T-shirt - Monki
Hat - market in Spain
Shoes - Flea market
Necklace - H&M
Bag - Versace
Sunglasses - Dior
Flag - Norwegian

HOW I STYLE FOR A DAY OFF/#iwillwearwhatilike-link up

#iwillwearwhatilike - Anything Goes

The weather in Oslo is amazing at the moment so I thought I`d step out of my comfort zone and actually take todays pictures outside, not on my porch as I usually do.


And when I first desided to step out of my comfort zone I managed to get a excavator on my pictures, well that`s just great...


Anyway, my white jeans is back on, I like best to use them in summertime, white outfits in a snowy Norway tend to be impractical.


A graphic t-shirt with a pair of jeans is always a good idea.


Flats and a clutch looks nice with the jeans, my feet thank me for a break form the heels I normally wear almost everyday.


It was fun taking pictures outside, won`t be the last time, I tell you.


Tomorrow is Norways constitution day, and the whole country is out celebrating, I hope I am able to take some pictures to share with you.

Jeans - Sand
T-shirt - secondhand
Clutch - ASOS
Shoes - Tom`s
Sunglasses - Madonna for H&M

Vi snakkes!

HOW I STYLE A GREEN MIDI-DRESS

This dress has rapidly become a favourite, I just LOVE the colour, shape, length and not least the pockets.


Today I am styling it with dark blue, green and blue is a combination that I really like.

 
When the dress is as simple as this, I think that it is a good idea to use accessories as a statement-piece.
 




Dress - Monki
Boots - Anna Field
Necklace - H&M
Clutch - market in Spain

HOW I STYLE THE PURPLE TOP - #iwillwearwhatilike-link up

The #iwillwearwhatilike link up this week is a tribute to Prince, hence the purple theme. I went for a simple longsleeved t-shirt, and with a top as simple as this one I feel that I can go all in with the pants.


So I desided to take these babies out for a spin, my beloved sparkeling pants.

 
 
Keeping it simple with a gold necklace-ring and gold pumps to match.
 
 


 And wearing my purple sunglasses and purple lipstick just to add some more purple to the tribute.

Top & necklace - H&M
Pants - Lindex
Shoes - Zara
Sunglasses - Ray Ban

HOW I STYLE THE OFF-SHOULDER SHIRT

First of all, I have to wear a bra, I am 40+ and I have been pregnant and given birth twice, so I HAVE TO WEAR A BRA!!! Wearing a off-shoulder shirt can therefore be tricky, there is no way I would wear this shirt and wear a normal bra. I really dislike showing off the bra straps. But I have invested in a bra with detachable straps, it was expensive but worth every penny. It is a lifesaver when it comes to wearing strapless dresses and now... off-shoulder shirts.

 
This shirt is a DIY piece, my fathers old shirt actually, I cut off the top and sewed an elastic band and voila.... I think this won`t be the last time I`m wearing it this summer.
 
 
And to match the light blue colour (and the amazing weather we`re having in Oslo these days) I went for a pair of light blue jeans. I don`t wear them much, the backpockets are not flattering but since the shirt covers them, they were my choice today.
 

 
I desided to use the dark blue colour in the stripes to match my heels.
 
 
Because I don`t wear any accessories today I went for a dark blue sixpence to complete the outfit.
 
Turn out okay, if you ask me!
 
Vi snakkes!
