I was contemplating for a long time, whether to get this jacket or not. It took some time to get used to the oversized boxy look of it, and the print mix. But now I absolutely love it. It’s such a great statement piece. And again, a cropped top look. I predict that you will see a lot of it here during this season. I hope all of you Norwegians had a lovely celebration of May the 17th yesterday (our national day). Mine was absolutely amazing. Being able to go with naked legs all night long, in May, without being cold.. No words.

I’m very into the belly trend rhis season. I want to wear cropped tops all the time. I remember not feeling too comfy with it when it was hot in 2008, and now I have no idea why. Perhaps it grew on me over the years. I scored this top at a sample giveaway hosted by Mildh Press and Gina Tricot a while ago, and I knew right away that it would become a favorite. It’s long sleeved and tight, and somehow brings me back to the 90′s.

It’s not proper spring to me before I roll out my bike. To ride between small white wooden houses and cherry blossom trees in my home city Kristiansand is magic to me. I’m all about appreciating the little things in life. The golden moments.

I had to bring this Kaizers Orchestra net with me after their concert in Kristiansand earlier this month. An amazing live band indeed. I’ve been in love with them since I saw them live at a festival some years ago. It’s so sad that they’re taking a long break after this year though.
My Cheap Monday boots have got a bit of a beating through this winter. They’re just too comfy and too good looking to be left home, so they’ve been going about everywhere with me. They will probably be worn heavily for spring as well, so I guess they’ll fall apart by the time summer gets here. Hope not.

Well, the top says “Brooklyn beats”. Not so easy to see with the jacket covering half of it though. It’s from the men’s department. For some reason I think they have the best sweaters and tees, concerning shapes and prints. My collection of band tees from Divided men is piling up. To add a more feminine touch to them, I often cut off the sleeves with holes wide enough to spot a bit of the bra on the side. Also, I’m easily charmed by industrial buildings, like this one. It’s got so much personality, with the worn out brick look, and large geometric windows. My future dream home contains at least one bricked wall, and old wooden floor, or concrete, and a large window to let in a lot of light.

I went for a mix of leopard skirt and denim shirt at work the other day. The color of the shirt is best shown on the picture to the left. I recently got this New Icons necklace at H&M, and I must say I like the way it looks worn with a shirt. I’ve been craving a western tie, but this pretty much does it for me.

A look I threw together right before last years Hove festival, which Im attending this year as well. I’m very fund of the denim+lace look. Actually, about a year ago I wore a quite similar outfit. I’m looking for a new lace dress, most preferably a white longer one. It will be the perfect thing for summer, combined with both heels and boots.
DIY floral headband
Last summer I made a DIY guide on how to make this floral headband for Sørlandsstil. Do you want to see the DIY? Click here.
Something tells me that this festival trend will be big the following year as well. I’m keen on making one which is a tad smaller, to wear for everyday use.
A couple of days ago I went to an Ghd-event hosted by Mildh press, where I and a handful of other bloggers got to learn styling tips and tricks by using their new Eclipse styler. Everybody got such nice curls, except for me, who ended up with something looking more like waves. Apparently my hair just doesn’t want to curl, not even with the help of a hairdresser. But it was very fun though, to learn different ways of styling. I got to bring home my own styler, so I will practise more at home. Perhaps I somehow manage to curl it later. We also learnt a new volume trick that I’m keen on showing you.

As I told you in the last post I went to the Iggy Azalea concert, and to the Nas afterparty wafterwards. I had a really great time. I didn’t bring my camera, but luckily I found these on Natt&Dag. I was wearing the layered necklace look, which Im still hooked on (they just make everything look a lot better imo), and this dress with mesh panels that I recently purchased. I tried to coamb my hair a dozen times before going out, to soften up the curls, but they kept tangling up anyway, so eventually I gave them up. My hair kind of always go it’s own way. Tangly hair or not, it was truly a night to remember.

Right after blogging my previous post my charger died. Which means I had to wait a week to get a new one. Apparantly my charger is so rare, that not even the universal ones with 10+ plugs won’t fit. Anyway, I’m back on track yet again. I uploaded my previous outfit on instagram instead (@Lenarf).
I might as well call this a weekend blog. As I wish you a good weekend in about 50% of my posts. Haha! I do mean it though, and yet again I want to wish you a good weekend. Mine will kick off perfectly with Iggy Azalea concert tonight. It’ll be perfect after a tough week consisting of only work and sleep.

Before going out yesterday I felt inspired by this picture of Bambi Northwood Blyth, that I’ve posted earlier. It was quite spontaniously, but the result turned out great I think! It was actually a very easy hairstyle to do. I did it myself, and it took me somewhere between 10 and 15 minutes. If people are interested I might fix a how-to on my blog one day. I like that it kind of looks like a soft version of a mohawk, and that I also can keep my hair length and still create an edgy look.

March, the first spring month came with lovely weather. Therefore I took my new spring jacket out for a spin. I’m sooo looking forward to what’s ahead of us now. Spring is beautiful. It’s like watching the world come alive again. Everybody’s so cheerful, the leaves and flowers pop out, and the birds starts to sing again.
H&M purse and trench
After overwearing my pieces purse, I decided to get a new one in the same size. This one from H&M is a beauty. Suede leather, chain strap and metal details, all I like in one item. I wore it out for the first time today, along with a new spring jacket that I’ll show you tomorrow. Have a great Saturday!
I’ve been on and about this picture this winter, and hooked on layered jewelry ever since I took it. Now I just want to let you know that all the pieces above are from Cubus, now in store. So if you want to copy the look, now you can.
