So after a week filled with work during London fashion week, a cold and a visit I can finally say that I am back in business. During this little break the season managed to change, and it is officially autumn here in London.
So one of my goals is to build that basic wardrobe of mine, it might sound boring but the fact is that I am a jeans t-shirt boots kind of girl. Not in the boring way, but I prefer to put my effort in to the daily look rather then to the rare occasions. So I thought that I would share my so far bets bits of my closet, to maybe inspire you to some pieces you might be missing.
Everybody who owns a pair of jeans should own a jeans shirt. Wear it open with a t-shirt underneath, wear it as a Jacket over a dress during summer, or closed over a pair of jeans, or with a cardigan on top during winter. The choices are endless. It is definitely one of my best everyday pieces from my wardrobe. This one is from Zara and its made from 100 % cotton, which is for me important cause the skin can breath in it. In this case you don’t have to go for the pricey ones, just make sure the fit is good and that it is made from a good material.

So there are a few beauty things that I constantly keep in my bag in order to survive the day. My hand cream from Molton Brown, who not only smells delicious but keeps my hand fresh and silky smooth. Lip moisturizer from Elisabeth Arden Eight hour (or Carmex), cause I just always feel like having something on my lips and this one make them a little bit shiny as well. And last but not least my newest thing, Viamine E face mist from The Body Shop. It might sound weird to carry around a face mist in your bag, but for those people who lived in big citys like London, would know how quickly you feel dirty and unfresh. For me it is especially my face and after 30 min on the run on dusty trafficked street and crowded tubes you kind of need a shower. Well the answer my friends is face mist, a little dash of that in your face and you feel ready and fresh again!
I truly do love my Moschino gold belt that I bought in Paris a while ago, but for some weird reason it ends up staying more on my shelf then styled on me. I does look good on the shelf as well so I’m not complaining but I think I just need some ideas how to style it when not wearing a dress. Maybe with a oversized white shirt? I will keep you posted…
A pair of heels sure can make magic and spice up any outfit. I got this velvet kitten heels from Zara last year, and the great thing about them is, they are kitten heels witch means that you can actually walk in them an entire day and that they kind of have this open toe shape in the front, witch just makes them more interesting and less boring.

Ok so the other day while I was strolling around in the interior department of John Lewis and I found this brand I never heard about before called Waterford. The make mostly glasses and drinking accessories but even jewelry, and the have this new collection called Rebel which I absolutely fell in love with, I want it all. The pieces I picked out is pieces I imagine just laying around on the coffee table (yes, I love having a coffee table filled with books and objects ). The bottle opener would be the first thing I would buy, have you ever seen a more chic bottle opener like that?
Check out the entire rebel collection HERE.
At home on our coffee table
More crystals from the market ( don´t you just want them all? )
I dont really know when this obsession with crystal and stones started but I seems to have no end. I just want everything that has to do with them. So you can imagine my joy when I took a tour at Notting Hills Portabello Road market and found this english couple selling crystal and stones from Madagascar. I finally managed to decide witch one I wanted and I am quite happy with my choice. Now I just need to find the perfect place for it at home. Descions descions. Right now it serves well as a paper weight on our coffee table, so maybe it will stay there.
I got those brass hanger when I was living in Paris, and I love them so much I wish all my clothes were hanging on them, but they are little bit pricy for that. I think they are perfect if you need just a few hanger in the hallway for jackets and stuff, unfortunately we don’t have a hallway right now but Im saving them for now, and only a few of my lucky dresses get to hang on them. They are from the brand Hay, a danish brand that make amazing things.
Go get them!
I love this everyday bag from Zara. It has he perfect size, enough to fit notebooks and cameras but not to big and uncomfortably. I love that it has this old school shape that makes you keep your stuff organized (cause I am an expert in having an unorganized bag). And what about the little closing detail? So nice. I choose to pimp it up with my vintage bandana scarf but it looks just as good without it. Happy Monday folks!
