Buying a pair of jeans that has holes in but still cost as much (if not more) as a pair of high-end brand jeans, well that is something my dad would never understand. I admit, it is a bit crazy when you think about it, but you are also buying a piece that is truly unique and carries history in a way. And the best thing is that once you find a pair that truly sits well, you kind of can’t settle for less when it comes to jeans.
My levis Redone has the perfect light wash, the perfect high waist and just enough amount of holes!
Hands up everyone who feels like they have too many clothes but nothing to wear? Well, you are not alone if you raised your hand.
A couple of days ago I got asked by the app Share Style, where I work as one of their many freelancing personal stylists, to share my five best tips in how to do a wardrobe detox. A wardrobe detox is simply a detox but for your clothes and wardrobe. It’s a way to edit out what you don’t need and add pieces you are missing and simply clean and organize so you can easily get dressed in the morning. I’m sharing my first of five tips here, to read them all head over to Share Style blog.
HIDE THE CLOTHES YOU AREN’T SURE ABOUT FOR A FEW MONTHS.
This may sound ridiculous — why would you hide your clothes when you’re already struggling to find something to wear? — but it can really help. If you have some pieces in your wardrobe that you’re not sure about but haven’t got rid of them just in case you might wear them on some rare occasion, then fold them up and put them in a bag for six months. If you haven’t missed them or can hardly remember what’s in that bag, then you know that you can do without them. So get rid. Leaving them as an unreliable outfit option is only adding extra minutes to your daily dressing woes.
And if you still after reading the five tip needs an extra help, don’t hesitate to book an appointment with me at Share Style.
I dawns on me a lot of the time when styling how keeping it simple really makes it perfect, everytime. I know, I know I’m Scandinavian and we are really known for it and blah blah blah, but the truth it that we always try to overdo things and had we just removed one or two things the result would have been different and better.
The other day I styled my white t-shirt with a bandana and matched the bandana with the embroidered cherry. I turned out pretty well, I must say, simple and not overdone. Loving bandanas and cherry’s on clothes for that matter. Check my best buys of them both of them below. I’m quite tempted to get the cherry tee from Ganni with a white bandana, Yay or Nay??
I really have a thing for loafers lately. Fist of all they are comfortable and at the moment I have a bit of a problem with aching feets so I chose comfort over; looking tall in heels.
When it comes to styling its super east to style them as well. Personally, I prefer to go the old school way and wear them with a pair of denim, but you can easily pair them either a dress, a skirt or a pair of culottes. Littery everything, so a good investment in your shoe wardrobe I must say. The one above I got from Topshop and I love that they are a bit more fun than the classic black ones, a bit of metallic pink never did anyone any harm right?
But I’m ready for a new pair, but this time I’m dreaming of a Gucci loafers, preferably a pair of slides ones…
Help me, which one below do you like the best? And can you guess my favorite?
Isn’t it the nicest thing when you find a good everyday look? Well, this is my current one, classic and very casual. When I don’t know what to wear and I’m in a rush, this is my safe card.
I love the mom jeans from Mango simply because they are the perfect fit and it’s made of proper denim, not the stretchy ones you normally find on the high street. The knit from Uniqlo is just a good basic for a very good price point and it’s a blend of cotton and cashmere, so very soft as you can imagine. My cowboy boots from Topshop are perfect for when you running in town, and they look pretty kick ass too!
And Oh, My metal pot from H&M Home, isn’t it gorgeous?

Fashion doesn’t have to be expensive, these are my favorites on the high-street right now!
Suede slides with studs on that makes me want to style them with a pair of jeans HERE, Pink and polaroid logo print, can’t imagine a better combo HERE, A perfect everyday city bag in suede HERE, I have this thing for big earrings lately ( or let’s say always), these gemstone ones I wouldn’t mind HERE
A few days ago I was styling the Spring/Summer collection for No Ordinary Suit, and here is a little teaser of what will be coming up on the shop soon. I can’t really explain how happy it makes me to see your vision become realized, it’s something magic when you see a result of a great teamwork. And it sure helps that Paddy, our photographer also is a master of filming and editing videos. This clip makes me want spring now!
And let’s talk about the collection! I love it all, I already put my hand on one piece already. Can you guess which one?
Right now I’m prepping our seasonal shoot for No Ordinary Suit, I can’t wait since it’s always so much fun! Here is a video of our last shoot for AW16 that I styled. There is something special with a video isn’t it? You can see the movement in the clothes in a way you can’t with a still photo, I love it!
Sorry for my radio silence lately, but I have been a busy bee with various projects, I will get better in blogging! I thought I at least will share some highlights of the week.
1. I’m drinking coffee, a lot of coffee. Last week when I had a cup I realized London really turned me into a lipstick girl. The evidence is on the coffee cup, first time this happens to me.
2. I’m going back to basic when it comes to dressing, a white shirt and jeans (and a gold belt of course ) makes me feel more fashion than ever. This was taken before meeting a client for a personal styling session.
3. Spring and summer collection has landed in store and I can’t wait for bare legs and floaty pieces. Currently very obsessed with the Swedish brand Rodebjer SS17 collection…
