When nothing is right, go (left) jumpsuits!

The solution to every fashion emergency is.. you guessed it: jumpsuits. Whenever I don’t know what to wear, I just put on a jumpsuit and add some accessories, and the look is done. So I guess you can say it is a guide on how a lazy girl dresses fashionably as well haha.. This one from By Timo is perfect for any fancy occasion, but can also be dressed down, like I did, for an everyday look. I added a denim vest to get that ABBA/hippie vibe, but dressed it down with sneakers to make the outfit more modern. For that last Maren touch, I of course added a bunch of jewelry.. 

Wearing: By Timo jumpsuit, Urban Outfitters vest, vintage jacket and bag, Eytys sneakers and Max Mara sunglasses.

 

Sunflowers in the sun

Hello Tuesday! The temperature in Oslo today is insane, the sun is shining, so what other perfect day to wear this lovely sunflower two-piece set. To make it less cute, I styled it with some tennis shoes and socks, some futuristic shades and a pique shirt. Defiantly the comfiest I´ve been in a while.

Wearing: Shorts & jacket by Stine Goya, t-shirt from Birgitte Herskind, bag by Cala Jade, sunglasses from Vogue Eyewear and sneakers by Veja. 

 

Vintage for the win

Wearing: Vintage jacket and bag, dress from Samsøe & Samsøe and sneakers by Nike

My love vintage shopping is never-ending, and in this outfit I am wearing two of my favorite scoops that I have used over and over again. I found the leather jacket in a vintage shop called Episode in Amsterdam. I was a bit on the fence whether or not to get it, but I am so glad I did. It is the perfect item to rock up a cute dress, and I am planning to wear it this summer with a silky dress and some cowboy boots to a festival (if I end up going to any festivals that is..) Anyways, a pro tip is to always save some time for vintage shopping when traveling, you never know when you will find your next treasure. Always make sure to research vintage shops before exploring a new city.

The bag on the other hand was found in a vintage/secondhand shop here in Oslo called UFF. It only cost me 50 NOK, I would almost call it the student version of a vintage Fendi baguette bag.. haha. It fits all my everyday necessities! If you live in Oslo or just visiting, go into UFF. It might seem like a lot at first, but take your time and browse through the racks.

 

Party Pants

Party pants to brighten up my mood! Still going strong with my exam, but managed to take a little break and attend some morning events yesterday. I decided to put these amazing green sequin pants to good use, because who says sequins are only allowed at night? To spice things up I added my blue leopard bag, with a blue leopard top.. rawr..

Wearing: In The Mood For Love pants, Acne Studios blazer and sunglasses, 2NDDAY blouse, Cala Jade bag and Eytys sneakers.

 

Diana with a twist

Princess Diana has always been a fashion icon of mine. She had so many good “fashion moments”, and a favorite of mine is the iconic look consisting of a college sweatshirt, combined with some cycling shorts. My thoughts behind this look, is that I wanted to do a sporty outfit with a twist. Diana with a twist. To make the cycling shorts more wearable, I added a longer coat so they would only be showing on the front of the outfit. Some pearls and a chic hairband made the look a bit less sporty, but to not loose the athleisure vibe, I went with some sneakers with high white tennis socks.

Some tips if you want to try out the cycling shorts, but don’t know how to do it:

  • Add a longer coat or topI always do this when wearing cycling shorts, it makes the look more covered up which I personally feel more comfortable with. 
  • Go for color or patternIf you feel like a black cycling shorts will look too much like gym wear, try one in a color or a patterned one. That way it will feel more like a “regular shorts”.
  • Add non-sporty garments If you are not a total fan of the sporty look, try wearing it with some heels and a longer blazer, and add some fun accessories like a chic bright colored bag. 

Wearing: Vintage coat, Stine Goya shirt, Bikbok shorts, Balenciaga sneakers, Prada headband, Anni Lu earrings and bag from Thanx God Im VIP Paris. 

 

H-ELLE-O

Tried to make a fun title there haha, oh well.. I am back! Welcome to my new blog here on the Norwegian ELLE. I am super excited to be a part of the new ELLE profiles, and I am also excited to start writing again. I have so many thrilling plans for not only this blog, but also my life haha.. You see, I am closing up on my last month of being a bachelor student here in Oslo. For the first time since being 6 years old, I will not be in school anymore. As nerve-racking as that is, I think it will be a fun journey. So if you want to tag along, please check in on this blog once in a while. I may not be the most active until mid-June, but I promise we are going to have so much fun after that!
