When one of my best friends turned 50 this summer, we wanted to do something special for her. So a champagne brunch at one of the most fancy restaurants in Oslo was in place.

So what does one wear at a fancy restaurant? This particular restaurant is an old fashionable restaurant established in 1900, so of course I had to wear a hat. So I started with the hat to put together the rest of the outfit.

A sweet looking blouse with ruffles in a sweet looking creamy colour.

And because I am far from sweet (when it comes to clothes, anyway...) I chose a leather skirt to pair with the sweet blouse.

As the hat was the base for the outfit and I didn't want a black and white look, a creamy blouse and creamy shoes with the black skirt and black hat seemed like a good idea.

And I can't get over those shoes!! I LOVE them!! And my Gucci clutch, I love my Gucci clutch, as well.

So this is me on my way to a champagne brunch.

Blouse - H&M

I find myself getting more and more fond of wearing shorts. I have found out that the ways of styling shorts are next to endless.

Maybe it`s age-thing, I feel a bit more dressed with a pair of city-shorts rather than the shorter ones.

Red is always a winner and my all time favorite colour.

Peplum tops were huge a couple of years ago, but I am still not over them. I am absolutely in love with wearing them.

A red clutch to match the top and black heels to match the shorts - and I`m good to go!

So this is me wearing a shorts.

Shorts - H&M
Top - H&M
Shoes - H&M
Clutch - market in Spain

I am not a very black person when it comes to clothes, I am actually not a black person in any sense. But navy blue is a colour I do like especially together with red.

So my navy blue skirt together with a long navy blue t-shirt was great for a casual outfit.

I didn`t want the outfit to be too dark so I styled it with a red clutch and an oversized denim jacket.

And my red, white and blue scarf and Stars and Stripes-Converse seemed like a good idea.

So this is me wearing navy blue.

I love this dress and I have worn it several times this summer.

The fact that it has pockets makes me love it even more. I cant`t get enough of dresses with pockets.

And I can`t get enough of green garments so this is win-win to me.

I think the boots are so cool and the can be worn with dresses, trousers, shorts and skirts. In fact, they can be worn with EVERYTHING.

I wanted to match the little bag With the boots, I am still a bit old-School when it comes to the bag/purse - shoes/boots matching each other.

So this is me wearing a patterned green dress.

We took the same road trip just about a year ago, read about it here. And on sunday it was time to drive our youngest son to the hockey camp again.

On the way back home we decided to stop at the same spot as last year, next to a beautiful lake.

The ice cream isen`t much of an accessorie but I had been craving for ice cream all day so I had one, simple as that.

The skirt is new, gifted to me by a lovely colleague of mine.

The shirt is another by for my friend who sold off parts of her wardrobe earlier this year. The cross body bag is a long time casual favourite, in a navy blue colour that makes it go so well with jeans and denim. The sandals were actually worn on the same road trip a year ago, that`s kind of funny considering the amounts of shoes I own....

So this is me on yet another road trip.

Skirt - Marc Lauge
Shirt - Baum und Pferdgarten

Being on vacation at home this year resulted in doing some changes to our apartment. I am really in need of a walk-in closet, but that will not happen until my sons move out, and I do hope that is a long time from now. But we have a small room which we use mostly to our three (!) clotheshorses. I spent parts of my vacation tidy up in that room, putting up some shelves for my handbags and book shelves for my shoes and some other small changes. Anyhow, when I tidied this dress showed up, I had forgot all about it.

Not only did the dress show up but the shoes as well, forgot all about them too...

The handbag I had not forgotten about, and I think it looks good to leopard.

So this is me wearing a leopard dress.

We decided to take a day at Frognerparken, one of the most visited tourist attraction in Oslo, so posing was a walk in the park because everyone took pictures of each other at Monolitten, one of Gustav Vigelands most famous sculpture.

Being at Frognerparken with all the tourists I just had to wear my "I love Oslo" - T-shirt. Because I really do love Oslo.

Luckily we have had great weather most of our two weeks off from work.

There is not many places I can think of that is as beautiful as Oslo on a sunny day, but a Oslo in rain is not much to write home about.

The T-shirt needed to be styled with something red and/or black at least that´s what I thought. So a red and black patterned skirt it was then.

A pair of flip-flops and a golden bag with, amongst other things, water for the dog. The skirt has a golden buckle that´s why I had to match it with a golden bag. Of course I had to, anything else would be crazy, right!?!

So this is me a day at Frognerparken.

Skirt - H&M
T-shirt - Souvenir shop
Flip-flops - Havaianas

I bought this skirt at a vintage shop some years back. It is strange how one can find a handmade skirt, sewn to someone you have no idea who is, and find that the skirt fits you perfectly.

I guess that is why I´m so fascinated by vintage clothes; knowing that the clothes has history.

The top with a zipper in the back (slightly wrinkled, sorry about that) is in a creamy color so I can`t wear it with white, but it is great to wear with a skirt like this to balance the whole outfit a bit.

Also my very old sandals has the same creamy color so that´s a perfect match.

A little purple purse look good with the colors of the skirt, totally impractical, couldn`t even fit my phone in it.

But a lovely color all the same.

So this is me wearing a floral skirt.

Top - Monki
Skirt - Vintage
Sandals - Market in Italy

Well, as I wrote about in this post, I have a bra-situation going on, and finding strapless bras that work and are comfortable to wear is not easy. (The bra I wrote about in the mentioned post was no where to find, of course, when I had decided to wear an off-shoulder dress.) I saw this dress earlier this summer and it had my name on a lot of things has unfortunately.. It was actually the color that caught my eye, I mean, this is my color.

So due to my strapless bra was no where to be found, I had to figure out another way to wear the dress and then I thought; what about a bikini top? So that is what I did, wore a bikini top as a bra. Sometimes I am just too clever...

My Celine bag and a Panama hat together with some bedazzled sandals and I was ready for another day of doing nothing in my beautiful hometown.

The dog is in all of the pictures lately, but he´s allowed because I adore him.

These pictures were actually taken with some tourists as an audience, I am stepping further and further out of my comfort zone, that`s for sure.

So this is my wearing an off-shoulder dress.

Bag - Celne

The weather in Oslo is still great and you don´t have to ask me twice to wear my summerdresses.

And what is more summer than a white dress? Floral, maybe, but that is not the point. For me wearing white really is summer.

This is one of my more comfortable dresses and it has pockets. I love dresses with pockets.

Another thing you don´t have to ask me twice to wear, are hats. So wearing a white dress is a great opportunity to wear a white hat. Not only as a statement-piece but also as protection from the sun...? Of the sun...? Sun protection...? Whatever, I think it is a cool hat!

So when the idea was to go all in on the white my Stan Smiths of course had to come out for a spin together with a little white purse, which actually is a make-up pouch.

I also found out that I need, or more like want, a pair of white sunglasses.

So this is me wearing all white.

Dress - COS
Shoes - Adidas
Purse - Versace
Hat - market in Spain
Sunglasses - Fretex, secondhand
