My long summer holiday is officially over, and I am super excited to start my new job tomorrow. The only problem: I have nothing to wear. For someone who used to make a living out of styling other peoples wardrobes (and work outfits) do I have to admit mine is an awful mess at the moment. The reason for this is firstly the problems we had with the moving company from the UK, our furniture arrived yesterday in a thousand broken pieces, and all the 30 boxes with my precious clothes have been opened in customs. This is obviously understandable (the customs part, not the broken furniture part), considering the situation in Norway the past week, the problem was that all my beautifully folded pieces arrived super creased and were shoved into the boxes. On top of this did we decide to have a bit of TLC done in my boyfriends apartment, meaning: my boyfriend, myself and our cardboard moving boxed and faulty furniture is currently living in my parents house and I am unable (unwilling) to unpack properly. I cant wait to be settled into a more permanent home in a few weeks, unpack my wardrobe, and start my Norway-life again.
In the meantime: at least I have an excuse to buy new workwear. The below pieces are currently on my wish list.

I enjoyed an amazing, hectic and beautiful summer in the south of Europe, but nothing can really compare with Norwegian summer. Especially not when the weather is like it is now! We went straight to our summerhouse at Hvaler the second we landed in Oslo. My favourite place on the earth.
Straw hat season is coming to an end (at least for me) but fedora hat season is just getting started. I have bought and tried several felted hats over the years, but none could really compare with the hats from Rag and Bone. I guess you do get what you pay for. I want them all!

The end of a holiday calls for creative solutions. Here I wore a scarf as a top. Cannes style.
Oh.. and guys: I promise this will be the last hat-outfit in a while
Hermès scarf/ Current-Elliot shorts/ Birkenstock sandals
Another summer favourite is this vintage Pucci dress that I bought at Velouria vintage a few years back. It is a possibility that it might be a nightgown but it still works perfectly over a bikini..
Over the top always works while on holiday (but nowhere else)..
Kimono from Asos/ Sandals from Lanvin/ Bikini from Cubus
I was completely out-shined by the beautiful bride (as it should be) but still quite satisfied with my budget dress that I wore to the wedding in Spain Friday.
Oh My Love dress (sold online and at Topshop Oxford Street)/ Sophia Webster shoes/ Chanel purse
My blog has been a bit quiet for the past week. Wifi has been a bit fussy..And I have been a bit lazy.. I enjoyed some amazing days in Marbella with my boyfriend and Nathalie and her boyfriend ( thanks for the picture Nathalie!). It is not much that can compete with long days in the sun with best friends, fresh seafood and several bottles of rose wine. The image below is from Nikki beach Marbella, that recently underwent a really successful upgrade. Worth a visit if any of you are ever in the area. The foursome left Marbella two days ago to attend one of my best friends wedding in Valladolid and tomorrow are my boyfriend and I leaving for Cannes where his family is meeting us. What a busy summer we are having!
I hope your vacays are just as amazing as mine. Don't forget to live in the moment and enjoy every second of it!
My parents have an apartment in Marbella, and every time I go here I tend to leave some clothes, and I always get pleasantly surprised when I return and locate forgotten items in my wardrobe. This crocheted dress is currently living in Marbella. It works perfectly over a bikini on a beach club, less perfect in the streets of Oslo.
