I'm in Oslo for a few days, enjoying a few breaths of fresh air before I am heading back to The Big Smoke in a week. I came over these forgotten about-images from last week, so let's start with those before I kick off my Norwegian patriotic bonanza.†
Vintage bomber jacket / Helmut Lang leggings/ See By Chloť shirt/ Wild Wool jumper/ Isabel Marant boots/ Proenza Schouler bag (+billyboy)
Am I the only one a bit freaked out over my "the grudge" look in that first picture??†
Anyway.. I cut my hair! I cant remember it ever being this short. I think I like it, it feels a lot healthier. But don't you dare call it a bob!
I prefer to go to Andres at Inch in Hegdehaugsveien, but considering the fact that I have been living in London for a good while now was it about time to search for the 2nd best. So, after a†couple†of†rounds†with yellow hair and hairdressers wanting to bleach my hair (hell no)!†I ended up at Fresh Islington, an Aveda salon where I could bring Andres' colour codes with me.They are a great team there, so if you live in London should you definitely pay them a visit. An added bonus is the complimentary hand massage you get while you are waiting. I am a sucker for a free cuddle.†
And if you live in Oslo... the choice is simple..†
Oh God how I wish that headline indicated that I was going to Hawaii instead of showing off a new jacket. I do love clothes but Hawaii vs clothes is not even a competition. Anyway, no Hawaii trip for me, but a very cool jacket works as a comfort. You can†Get it here! †
Asos Vintage bomber jacket
A striped top, a pair of black jeans and a beanie.. It doesn't †always have to be so fancy. It is great fun to experiment with clothes, take chances and push my own limits, but when it all comes down to it is it the basics that saves me in the everyday life.†
COS top/†Topshop†coated cropped jeans/ H&M fluffy cardigan/ Isabel Marant boots/ Proenza Schouler bag with Holzweiler scarf/ FWSS beanie
Its almost spring in London now, so lovely and sunny! And spring weather requires a spring outfit.†
Needless to say I froze my ass off, as I do every year when I think it is summer as soon as the sun comes out for half a minute.†
Carven jacket / Peter Pilotto for Target top/ Koral jeans/ Isabel Marant oldie but goodie boots/ Proenza Schouler bag with Holzweiler silk scarf
"What's in my bag" †posts somehow feels very blogger ala 2005, but I personally always liked them; †so her is my first whats in my bag post in five years:
Proenza Schouler bag with Holzweiler /Celine Aagard silk scarf and Proenza Schouler wallet
Marc By Marc Jacobs perfume. This practical and handy little perfume balm is always in my handbag / Kindle Paperwhite, the most genius gadget ever made. I always bring it with me and it makes the awful tube rides in rush hour a bit less horrible. I have actually read 37 books since I first got it a year ago. Not bad! / †Chanel eyeshadow, Mirror and Rouge kit/Extra chewing gum (I stock up on Extra white and eucalyptus every time I go to Norway). I am a gum addict and work my way to at least one or two packages a day/Lakerol: another one of my Norway addictions. Cant live without salty licorice.†
That's pretty much it..†
You know there is a collaboration going on when the whole Harvey Nichols office is shopping at netaporter.†
I managed to get my hands on a couple of pieces for an amazing price. First out is this jersey top.
Peter Pilotto for Target top / †Carven jacket
Current/ Elliot shirt / River Island jeans/ Isabel Marant Dicker boots/ Stella McCartney top/ Proenza Schouler Ps11 bag
Over 3 million†passenger†journeys are made on the London underground each day, with†600,000†people†traveling†between 7 and 10am Monday-Friday.
So.. Can you imagine the chaos when the tube workers go out on a strike, resulting in hardly any lines operating all day for two whole days..So whats a girl to do but layer up, put on her walking shoes (sneakers are in fashion this season after all), leave early and be one of the two people in the whole city that actually manages to get to work in time. Eva vs London, 1-0!
Isabel Marant Etoile dress/ Holzweiler scarf/ Nike sneakers/ Proenza Schouler bag/ Hunkydory lanb fur vest
A long sleeved, black , tight dress under a oversized cardigan can be the solution when going straight from work to drinks. Not my most creative moment, but there is no need to make it any more complicated. I combine it with a large bag filled with makeup, heels and a spare pair of tights.†
Full outfit coming up..
Asos dress (get it here)/ Proenza Schouler PS1 bag (get it here)/ Tag Oslo pony shoes
I followed my boyfriend on location scouting around South Bank, Westminister and Embankment today. It is such a beautiful part of the city, and even though it is what most people associate with typical London do I rarely, with the exception of the occasional visit to Tate Modern, spend any time there. It definitely reminded me I need to enjoy this beautiful city a bit more and be more tourist and less stressed workaholic. I know I am going to regret it when I move back home if I don't take advantage of what I have so available right in front of my nose. London Eye, Big Ben, London Dungeon, riverside boat-trips and London Aquarium: here I come! †
