My top picks from the White Stuff winter collection 2014

Ever since I visited the White Stuff shop in Copenhagen earlier this autumn I havent been able to focus on another brand of clothing. Ive been a fan of WS for some time already but now Im fallen head over heels in love again. Its so bad Ive been fantasizing about setting up my own WS shop here in Norway (Unfortunately we dont have WS here). Im living in the countryside on a farm and my dream is to renovate one of our buildings to accommodate a shop of some kind. WS would be perfect in these rural surroundings. :) Crazy I know but a girl can dream right? dream big! ;)

One thing I love about WS is that they are pouring out new collections only with a few weeks apart. Im a sucker for new stuff. :) Without further ado I present you my favourites from their three new winter collections, Gypsy caravan, Barnmaster and Winter fables.

Gypsy Caravan

Deer jumper - anything deer is dear to me. :P

Roma skirt - I love this vibrant skirt and there is a bird or two. ;)

Caravan cardi - I love WS knitwear and this cardi is no exception, love the little dots of colour and fairisle pattern.

Folkloric top - the print is sooo cute!

Gypsy caravan reversible skirt - the same theme from the top above, lovely!

Gypsy wish skirt -love the horse print with dots of bright colours and not to forget the blue bobble  hemline. :)


Chicken jumper - soo cool - chickadeedledoo

Stable shirt - love the little ditsy owls. :)

Winter Fables

Victoria dress - so perfect for winter! :) I need a dress that keeps me both stylish and warm. ;)

Violetta cardi - I have a thing for long cardis this autumn and just love this shade of purple. :)

Feel free to tell me your favourite items from the White Stuff collections. :)

* disclosure - this is not a sponsered post, Im just expressing my love for WS.

Casual Fridays - the patterned top/jumper edition

Hia ladies! How you doin? Im sorry for the infrequent posting (yet again) but turns out Im pretty exhausted juggling working full time, taking care of a toddler and run a household so come evenings Im a mess or couchpotato to be precise. ;) I will try to do a better job at blogging, bear with me please. :)

Well as Im running from chore to chore I tend to favour the more practical outfits. For me such outfits consist of jeans/jeggings paired with a top/jumper. To prevent them from looking boring I try to wear an interesting and eyecatching top/jumper. This outfit is the perfect example of my preppy casual style. :) My sister spotted this top in Copenhagen and of course I couldnt leave the store without a frenchie on my chest!! :) A frenchieface covered in sequins, whats not to love. ;)

What Im wearing:
Top from Esprit (recent)
Jeggings from Dr.Denim (recent)
Shoes from Softinos (recent)

As the weather has been pretty awful lately (rainstorms and a lot of rain, typical autumn) I havent got the chance to step outside for photos. So here are some indoors shots using my Iphone with my work office as backdrop. :) Looking at this outfit you might think where have the colours gone, hehehe. I guess the muted scandinavian style has rubbed off, but I can cope with it as long as there is a wolf involved. ;)

Cardigan from Lindex (recent)
Top from Esprit (recent)

Jumper from H&M (recent)

See, I havent totally forgotten my colourful self. ;)

Jumper from Boden (last year)
Shirt from Lindex (last year)

Well as you can see Im hard at working out this sewing business, Im slowly getting there. :) This is supposed to look like a dress for my little girl in the end. ;)
Have a lovely weekend! :)

Chip on my shoulder

Hia! Its not like I have chip on my shoulder these days but more like one on my chest and a pack down below. ;) Hehehe. This is to me one of my cutest outfit I have ever come up with, totally adorable. :) and maybe a little childish, but hey thats me. ;) When I bought the skirt I had totally forgotten about the squirrel cardi (too much clothes eh?) and I jumped of joy when I found it in the back of my closet by chance. :)

The skirt is of course from Boden, no surprise there. :) There is even a squirrel dress too which Im lusting after of course. It was just released among the rest of the winter collection this week, lots of droolworthy items Id say. :) Well dont be shocked if I turn up in a squirrly dress sometime in the future, hihihi. ;) No surprise to my colleagues at the office as well, I think they must be sick of me wearing all kinds of creatures. :) My obsession with animal prints is starting to show for real. ;)

I started my sewing class yesterday, yes Im going to learn how to sew clothes for my daughter and myself, preferably dresses and skirts if I manage. :) An aspiring seamstress but boy did I struggle yesterday, certainly Im not blessed in anything crafty. But I had a good time and learned a lot. Now I only have to make time to sit down and befriend my sewing machine, we are not on the best of terms yet. :P The rest of the class got homework but according to our teacher I apparently must be supervised when sewing. *blushes and hangs head down in shame* In other words a sewing disaster! Im wondering how this course is going to work out. ;) Stay tuned for more sewing bloooooopers. :P

What Im wearing:

Old cardi
Top from H&M
Skirt from Boden
Tights from White Stuff
Ankle boots from El Naturalista
