H&M blazer, top and shorts | Pieces purse | DNA shoes

While wearing this outfit I suddenly realized how spring/summer trendy I looked. With black and white, cutout elements, and black leather. All at once. But it’s one of my favorite outfits though. Clean, with details that makes it interesting. I wore this to a dinner with my brother, to celebrate his birthday. About the caugh, I was diagnosed with airway infection, and I’m now on a medicine cure. Today will be my first day back to work since friday afternoon. Feels good to be back in shape.

Thank you so much for your comments on my anniversary post! Each and every one put a big smile on my face. I love to read about who you are, and what you do. It’s also fun to see that many of you have followed the blog since the start. Have a good day, all of you. :) I’m soon heading for work, as I feel slightly better today.
Zara lace dress
I finally found the perfect delicate white lace dress. It only took me five years. But it was worth the wait. I have a thing for history, and things that look like they were made decades ago. This one has a vintage feel to it, which I like a lot. I wore it with heels in the evening of our national day, May the 17th, but it will also follow me to festivals with boots and hats.
On May 7th this blog turned five (!) years. I’m what you can call a blog veteran by now. Haha. That deserves a blog post. So as I’ve been sick, lying in bed all day today, I decided to go through the entire blog. The result turned out to be this post featuring some of my looks through the years. I left out the posts from 2013, which you easily can browse back to, if interested. Five years. It feels both far away, and near at the same time.
As my Mom said, when I spoke to her on the phone about the annivesary, the blog has been documenting me growing from being a teen into becoming a young woman. I’m happy that I stuck around until now, because when I browse my photos I don’t only see my looks, I also remember a lot about how my life has been like. Both up and down periods. I really appreciate the life I get to live today, and I’m grateful for all the experiences I’ve had.
I want to thank everyone bothering to help me out with my blog photos. And last, but not least I want to thank you, my beloved readers! Thank you for following me, commenting and leaving your tracks here. I really appreciate it. If I could I’d give every one of you a big hug.
Also I’m curious to know who you are? Where are you from? When did you start reading my blog, and how did you find it? I rarely ask you questions, so it would be a lot of fun if any of you want to answer these.

After work today I strolled around the city with Penny, wearing in my new boots. Dr Martens are very stiff to begin with, but I’m told that they’ll soften up and be the most comfortable shoe to wear ever. Hopefully. I caught some kind of cold, with caugh, goosebumps and sore throat. In the middle of summer. I mean, come on! As I’ve been avoiding those bastard bacterias during the entire winter and fall, I think it’s unfair to be attacked now that the sun has been shining, and the temperatures have been high. At least I do everything in my power to fight their terror.
Ebay | Snake ring

Those who have been following me for a while might remember this snake ring that I got a couple of years ago. My love for untraditional jewelry is still here. Now a days I’m mostly wearing statement necklaces, but I’m sure massive ring wear will be back soon. I have periods where I’m intensly into something, before I get tired and move on. Before my necklace period I was into simple rings. I’m still tho. I just kind of forget to put them on in the morning, as my jewelry isn’t organized enough. Sort of gets like that when keeping all your stuff in a tiny room, where you also sleep. As I live with guys, I don’t think they’d appreciate having my jewelry floating around in the bathroom.

When summer is in the air, I always prefer to wear lighter colors. This romantic piece is perfect for days when the weather is neither cold or too hot. Speaking of things I’m weak for, you can add lace and frills. The hair gives a nice and romantic touch to the outfit. It was a quite easy hairstyle, really. I just gathered my hair back, braided a loose braid, and tried to pin it up in a pretty way. Sometimes these experiments work, and other times I end up pulling my hair in despair, trying to fix it way too long.
Doc Martens | 6 eye boot
I finally got my first pair of docs. They’re lower than the regular 8 eyed ones, which is much needed for my not-so-model-long legs. Rumors say docs are both super comfortable once walked in, and that they keep your feet dry. Perfect. Festival season may now come. Fast.

Every sunday I will publish a small music list here, consisting of five songs. Five songs that I listen to at the moment. Sunday is the perfect day to shut out the world with music, a good book, and relaxing activities. And it’s the perfect day to share music on. I hope you enjoy it. Have a lovely sunday!

Work and play outfit. I built it around this maxi skirt that I purchased during winter, but never took out before now. The split is actually located closer to the front than I wore it. For a night out I’ll give it the attention it deserves. I decided to pair the skirt with a band tee, portraying none less than the amazing Jimi Hendrix, to make it less pretty and more everyday appropriate. I’m such a sucker for mixing contrasts. And I have an addiction to anything suede, especially jackets. This suede treasure has the perfect brown color which reminds me of something one could wear during the late 60′s. I want one with some fringe action as well, but I need to come across the perfect piece first.

Another “a year ago” outfit. I have a lot of images piled up here, that haven’t been published as I was on blogging on Sørlandsstil all prvious summer. I want that hair length back right now, so I’m growing out my hair atm. It just feels like it never grows longer. I guess I just have to be patient. I wore this maxi outfit on a rainy day. The best thing about light maxi lengths is that they keep you sort of dry, compared to pants.

Yesterday I cashed in the birthday present I purchased to myself in February, attending the Beyonce concert here in Oslo. It was amazing. First we had some wine in the back yard of some friends of mine, before we headed to the concert arena. Of course my phone battery went flat, so I have few pictures from the concert itself. It don’t matter anyway cause the memory one of those perfect summer days, with sun, wine, music and good company, is enough. I can’t wait for the rest!

I rarely wear my hair up, and when I do I feel kind of naked. I’m so used to hiding behind my hair. Though change is good, every once in a while. I really want to wear this jacket with an all white ensemble, but first I need white bottoms. My pant- and shorts wardrobe is the lamest ever, with only denim and black stuff. Almost. Also I need to avoid looking like I’m about to head out to a sensation white rave party. And I need to work a bit on my tan first. But right now, this will do.
As I work at H&M I see those clothes every day. I eyed this jacket for a long time, going through the pros and cons for taking it home with me, or not. Somehow I ended up with not. For a while. When I changed my mind it was nowhere to be found, which made me crave it even more. Some weeks after a jacket in my size was returned by a customer, and landed in my hands by luck. Meant to be, I call it.
H&M paisley dress | DIY headchain | Secondhand purse | Converse shoes
I have a weak spot for paisley print, and anything 60/70′s related. I knew I had to have this dress the moment I saw it. I think it looks so good with my DIY headband, I just wish my hair was a taaad longer. When festival season arrives I’m going to team it up with my black hat. Can’t wait. Speaking of festivals. I’ll get a pre taste of festival season with H&M Loves Music this Friday. That’s something I really look forward to. I hope to see you there, too!
