Hi Loves, hope you guys have had a great Sunday so far! To me, sunday’s are always filled with inspiration, time to make good food, cups of coffee and of course blogging. As the school year is coming to an end, I am preparing mentally for the hell that is finals.. Anyone else dreading finals? Oh well it is only one week out of the semester, and after I am going home to Norway! I am so excited to finally see my family and friends, cannot wait!

Zara dress, Guess shoes, Prada handbag, Michael Kors handbag and Karen Walker sunglasses 

I usually shy away from knee length dresses due to my hight, but this Zara dress caught my eye when I was visiting Riga, Latvia. I love that it looks so put together and sophisticated. What is your go-to look for a more put together outfit?

I have always loved matching florals with stripes, pattern with stripes well.. anything and stripes. It is such a classic and effortless look, especially for the spring and summer seasons. Today, I paired my striped top with a printed H&M skirt that I picked up about a year ago. To seperate the two pieces and cinch in my waist I added my black and gold Moschino belt. What is your favorite print or pattern for spring?

Forever 21 dress, Alexander Wang handbag, Guess heels, She Inside coat and Chanel sunglasses

This Alexander Wang bag is one of my all time favorites. I find that most of my bags have a very refined and classic look but this bag is a bit rougher with its tough leather and silver studs. Here I paired it with a more feminine print and shape to soften it up a little, what do you think?

Hope you guys are having a great Monday so far!

Happy Sunday everyone, hope you guys have had a good weekend so far! My Sunday is packed with school work (ok, it might be because I procrastinate until the very last second..), so I’ll be at the library all night, with the exception of watching the new game of thrones episode! I’m so exited! I know at least in my wardrobe I have tons of dresses that don’t get a lot of wear, because I use them the same way over and over. So, I decided to try and be better at being clever about the way I style dresses, so today I wore this flowery dress as a skirt  under one of my favorite striped sweaters. If you would like more style-guides or ways to wear dresses in different ways on here, let me know and I will try to be better at posting some guides.

Sheinside coat (get it here), ASOS dress, Zara shoes, Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag and H&M headband

I love to play around with black and white combinations, so when I received this checked coat from sheinside.com I knew exactly what to pair it with, my checked ASOS dress. It is almost too much, but I love the way it came together. A while back I got this headband (is it a headband? I don’t know), I think I ordered it because it looked royal, anyone else thinking of those crazy hats/headband you always see in the royal weddings? I have always been crazy about headpieces like this, but there is never really an occasion to wear one (unless, of course you are British royalty), so I figured why not just wear it today?

Checked

Just received this beautiful printed dress from sheinside.com, thank you so much! I love how this dress matches my two all time favorite patterns checked and houndstooth perfectly! I decided to pair it with a leather backpack from ASOS, a pair of pointy black heels and black shades from Chanel for a more casual look. Hope you guys have had a great week so far, my school schedule this week has been a bit crazy, so I am more than excited to get some down time this weekend. If the weather stays like this (30 celsius and sunny!!) then we might go paddle boarding on Friday, I’m so excited to try it! Apparently it’s something you are obligated to try if you live in Austin. Have any of you guys tried it out, if so any tips and tricks?

Late night Inspiration

ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImagePhotos gathered from Tommy Ton, Pinterest and tumblr. 

I love sites like Pinterest, We heart it and Tumblr, it is such a fun way to get inspired. I can go through boards and pins for hours, and then I save all of the photos (let’s just say my IPhoto and desktop are a little overcrowded to say the least), but then I never do anything about them. So when I was scrolling through some of my favorite pinners, boards and tumblrs I figured I would make a little ‘late night inspiration’ post. If you want more fashion, streetstyle and inspirational photos head over to pinterest and follow me there.

I am always interested in finding great new blogs, pinners or tumblrs so please feel free to recommend your favorites in the comment section below, it’s always fun to discover new amazing bloggers or pinners! Have a great Tuesday everyone, and stay tuned for another look tomorrow.

Forever 21 skirt, Vintage shirt, 3.1 Phillip Lim handbag, Jeffrey Campbell shoes, and  Ray Ban sunglasses 

I thrifted this shirt at a vintage store in Dallas for about 2 $, I still cannot believe how great of a deal it was! I have ended up using it quite a bit so for the small sum I payed for it it’s been a great buy! I like wearing this shirt alongside bright colors, paired with a green pair of sunglasses and the red Pashli bag from 3.1 Phillip Lim it comes off even brighter. I am so excited about all the new followers on my blog lately, thank you for continuing to come back and leaving thoughtful comments, you guys are the best!

This is my second look for Austin Boutique Langford Market, I see now that my love for flaired pants is pretty obvious, I did not even cross my mind when I picked them up! I just love how effortless and sophisticated they look, especially how well they photograph. We had some trouble shooting this look because it is so bright out here during the day, and this look almost disappeared, but I am glad this go-to location worked out. I really wanted to try an solid color look, and I think the different shades of white worked out nicely, especially with the crisp colored shoes and top. On another note, I had the pleasure of discovering an article written about my blog by a large Norwegian newspaper! If you want to read it, click here. Thank you so much to everyone who continues to click back on my blog, I love the sweet comments you leave, and that you continue to come back. I am so grateful for all the fun and exciting opportunities that has happened on here lately. Thank you to all of you! And I will post the article up here later on today!
