Hi guys! I`m sorry I`ve been a little absent from the blog but I`ve been to Antwerp to visit a dear friend who is not only an excellent tour guide but also a brilliant designer. I wil show you his work in a later post! I was looking forward to shooting outfit pictures in the city, but most of the time it was so cold that I had to borrow clothes from my friend and wrap up all the time - and unfortunately it was more a missmash of styles than a stylish layering ensamble....
Tomorrow I`m getting the pictures from the photoshoot delivered, can`t wait to post the pictures on the blog later this week!

( H&M SKIRT, VINTAGE YSL BELT, PRIMARK BLOUSE, INDISKA \ VINTAGE RINGS )
Not only do I have a love of pleats, but it seems that purple blouses is another thing that tickles my fancy these days... Taking outfit pictures makes me realise that I don`t have enough variation in my warderobe. That`s probably why I often feel like I don`t have anything to wear even though I have more than enough clothes. This blouse is an old favourite that I bought in London while I was studying there, the ruffles are fun and the ditsy floral print brings out memories whenever I look at it and make me smile. The YSL belt is an Etsy bargain!
I`d love it if you followed me on Bloglovin HERE ! Thank you!

Last summer I went to this amazing vintage themed wedding in England. Stuart and Polly incorporated their love of 1950′s rock`n roll with the aesthetic of a wartime garden party to create an amazing setting for their wedding. It was one of the most fantastic weddings you can imagine where everything from the surroundings to food and entertainment was really well thought through. We had such a great time, ending up jiving in the marquee untill 5 the next morning... If you are getting married and are interested in having a vintage theme, take a look at these pictures and get inspired!
I have two weddings to go to in the next three months, and another engagement was anounced today! I`m planning my outfits already. Preferably I`d like to find something vintage, perhaps a flowing 70s long party dress. Are you going to any weddings this summer? What will you be wearing?

It`s mostly been a lazy sunday lounging on the sofa, but I did have to put clothes on and get out of the house this afternoon to meet with the photographer and hair&make up artist from the shoot yesterday to select the pictures we want to use. I`m very happy with the result! Can`t wait to show you the result. We`re already planning a couple more projects to collaborate on. After the meeting the sun had popped out so I went for a walk around our neighbourhood where I snapped these pictures of some quaint houses that I would love to live in but they rarely come up for sale. Hope you`ve had a lovely weekend!

These are a selection of pictures from a photoshoot I styled last year for My Cup Of Tea Vintage. My Cup Of Tea Vintage is in fact my own business, or it was. I`ve put the whole thing on hold for ages, not knowing how to move forward, mostly because of supply issues and money of course.. Today I`m doing a collaboration photoshoot with other creatives who need pictures for their portofolios. I`m doing the styling, using vintage clothes from My Cup Of Tea. I`m excited, hoping this will boost not only my creativity and confidense with styling but perhaps also give me back my motivation for setting up my shop again...

Hi! Firstly I want to thank everyone who has contacted me these last couple of days with lovely comments and sweet thoughts on my blog and my picture on Dagens Outfit! Thank you guys, it means alot to me to know that you like what I do! And speaking of that, I`d love it if you would follow me on bloglovin by clicking HERE!
It stopped raining for the afternoon but I didn`t have time to catch the afternoon sun that peeped out, but managed to shoot some pictures in the last ray of daylight. I love this turban! The velvet is so glamorous, and I love the bohemian feel it ads to the outfit. Even though the weather is dull I felt like wearing my new vintage dress, which is pink - probably not a shocker to you, and has two of my favourite things in a dress combined; lace and flowy chiffon. I already knew I was girly, but writing a blog has made me realise that I own more pink items of clothing than I will ever admit to anyone...

I`ve had a hang up on pleats for a while now, and I just don`t get tired of them. Can someone please buy me the American Apparel pleated skirt in every colour?? Pretty pleats?
Here`s a selection of some ladies who rock their pleats. Get inspired!

I had a lovely time at the Nelly.com event last night. It was interesting to take a look at their fall collection because I`ve discovered that they stock alot of reasonable, pretty clothes and they make some killer accessories and shoes. Shame I didn`t get better pictures, I had to take my little camera wich is not very good to shoot with in the dark...
Thank you Polliani for the tickets!

Whilst searching the internet for photos for my moodboard for the photoshoot I came across this editorial. I saw the last picture years ago and fell in love with it, but I didn`t know where it was from as it was posted on someone` s blog and it didn`t give a source. The photos are shot by Steven Meisel and the models are George Harrison`s son, Dhani Harrison, and Sasha Pivovarova. I adore their bohemian outfits and the lovestory theme. I would too love to hang out wearing dreamy bohemian outfits, drinking tea and listening to a handsome guy strumming his guitar...

It`s been raining for most of the day, and the weather have been too grey for taking outfit picture. So meanwhile, I thought you`d enjoy these ladies who have very stylish rainy-day-ensembles. Those yellow umbrellas light up their outfits and the grey surroundings. I wish high heeled sandals were an option to wear out in the rain in Norway, but sadly it`s mostly the good ol` wellies that is adequate to keep both the rain and the cold out on days like these.
