I realized something whilst writing this post, winter season makes me dress in a very casual way. Just the thought of running around in heels in this cold weather makes me very unmotivated. Do not despair (for those who misses my more dressed up looks), I’m sure as soon as February is here I would get those heeled boots back on, or maybe earlier who knows?

This knitwear by the way, I never got so many complaints over the year by this simple yet so fine turtleneck knit from Hope. Sometimes (or a lot of times actually) the simple things really are the best!

Get to know me – 25 Questions & Answers

profile

Today I’m gonna be busy running around in a studio styling a shoot for Noordinarysuit , So I thought since I have got some new followers lately I would do a little interview with myself in a way by responding this  formula with 25 questions I found online. Are you ready to get to know me a little bit better?? Let’s go!

What is your middle name?

Hennisdotter, “Hennie” from my moms name and “dotter” from the word daughter in Swedish, so Hennies daughter if you translate.

What was your favorite subject at school?

Art and sewing classes (yes we actually have subjects like that in Sweden! ) of course!

What’s your favorite drink?

Coffee, all day every day.

What is your favorite song at the moment?

Arghh this one is a hard one, there are so many good songs out there. I always loved Cat Stevens/ Father and son, and I never get bored of it. I used to listen to a lot of music before, but I somehow lost it lately by constantly hearing music at work and living with a musician in the house so when I’m alone I enjoy the quiet moment I have. Need to find that love for it again.

What is your favorite food?

Everything Italian, pasta for life.

What is the last thing you bought?

A green sheepskin fur coat from Mango (London is really getting cold).

What is your favorite book of all time?

The Magus by John Fowles ( Blew my mind! ).

Favorite color? 

Black?

Do you have any pets?

We did have some mouse problems in the flat (welcome to London!) so we decided to name him Jerry (as in Tom and Jerry). Well I’m not sure you can really call it a pet though…

Favorite Perfume?

Dolce and Gabbana/ The One, Margiela/ Beach Walk and Clean/ Warm Cotton.

CHRISTMAS!! ( Can it be December soon?)

Are you married?

No, but I have a lovely boyfriend since 4 years.

Have you ever been out of the country, if so, how many times?

Well considering the fact I grew up partly in various countries in Africa due to my fathers work and have a mother who is a real globetrotter I have to say yes. I traveled since I was a kid hard to count how many times…

Do you speak any other language?

Yes, Swedish, English and French. And I understand Norwegian and Danish.

How many siblings do you have?

One, my older sister Evelina, she is the best!

What is your favorite shop?

Can not chose, to hard..but Noordinarysuit, Acne Studios and Liberty is where I shop the most.

Favorite Restaurant?

It obviously change according to country, I had a few in Paris but if I have to say in London I would recommend two local ones just next to our place The Havelock Tavern and The Bird In Hand ( Love British pub names).

When was the last time you cried?

Oh I’m a real cry baby, probably wasn’t too long time ago…

Favorite Blog?

Ilovejeans, tessmontegomery, fashionmenow, Manrepeller, Envelope, aportablepackage to name a few ( I can honestly go on forever, I’m a real blog junkie)

Favorite Movie?

I actually don’t know, I have obviously seen many good movies trough out the years but I really can’t think of any movie good enough to be written down here. I did really love the movie Into the Wild..

Favorite TV show?

I have to say Sex and the City because I used to be obsessed with that show, nowadays House of Cards, first season of True Detective and Stranger Things of course.

PC or Mac?

Mac! Never going back to Pc.

What phone do you have?

Iphone 6s (?)

How tall are you?

Not very tall…1, 60 m I think, kind of stop measuring myself when I realized I stopped growing.

Can you cook?

I can, but I don’t love it, to be honest. I don’t hate it either but I’m definitely not a passionate chef. I kind of do it because I have to eat..if it makes sense.

That’s all from me, Over and out!

I am fully aware that my Vans sneakers tend to appear in every post lately, but, Hey when you like something why deny it? They are classic, very comfortable and gives you that cool-factor that we all want.

The second thing I would like to focus on in this look is my t-shirt. It from this new brand called Herculie who produce printed t-shirts in organic cotton (yay!) this one that says “Hoochie Pucci” is by far my favorite, you can get that one any many more at Liberty London.

Dressing in all black doesn’t have to be boring!

A lot of people I meet keep telling me, Oh my style is boring I only dress in black. I refuse this, black doesn’t have to be boring. I think I learned this from my previous jobs in Paris where I had to wear black every day in my job. Let me tell you the key in how to dress well in black.

1. Mix materials, for example silk with jersey. You want to make it look like you actually are dressed in two colors with just using different kinds of material. Silk tends to shine and jersey is mat so it will look differently.

2. Play around with shapes and how you style it. As you can see on the picture above I tucked in one side of the blouse and let the other one hang loose, just to make it more casual and more intresting.

3. Accessories. I love to go a bit crazy with my jewelry if I wear all black, above I went for big gold earrings but for example a red bandana tied around your neck would do the job as well! Just be creative!

Let me know your tip in how to dress in all black!
