Scandinavian Summer

Scandinavian Summer

Hey you guys, sorry for being dormant for such a long time. I got swamped at work but I am back on track. I don´t know about you but I am totally getting into the summer mood and with a new season must come a new hairstyle. I didn´t go as far as cutting into a short bob like Kim Kardashian but I decided to go with Scandinavian and color my hair a little blond and sun kissed.  Here are my inspirational pics. What color are you going to go for this summer? Love


Scandinavian Christmas Crush

Scandinavian Christmas Crush

December is here already and I haven´t  had any time to decorate yet.  I am not much for over doing it when it comes to decorating for Christmas and I like things to be clutter free and low key.  After waking up super early this morning and drooling over pictures on pinterest during my morning coffee, I think I found my inspiration for Christmas this year. I wanted to share the pictures with you in case you might find if useful for your Christmas decoration. Have a lovely day 🙂


Pink Panther

I found some of my favorite items for you to be inspired by.  All items from shops around Reykjavík. I love the elegant pink colors and both looks are very easy and simple that can either be worn with  black or blue jeans. I somehow always thought that the pink colors didn’t suit my pale Scandinavian skin tone but boy was I wrong, especially with the the darker shade of pink. If you don´t feel like going all pink than you can try to spice up your outfit by adding a splash of color. 1 Lindex 2.195 2 Comma 9.990 3 Gallería Reykjavík 145.000 4 Comma 16.194 5 Lindex 11.995 6 Hagkaup ( Lancome ) 8.689 7 Húrra Reykjavík 18.990 8 Zara 11.995


Friday Inspiration: Páll Óskar

Friday Inspiration: Páll Óskar

You can’t talk about Icelandic fashion without mentioning the King of Icelandic fashion—and music—Mr. Páll Óskar. From the sparkles to the capes to the bodysuits to that absolutely perfect hair, Mr. Páll is an inspiration. So it was natural for this week’s Friday Inspiration that we pick him. Get ready to get sparkly. Here are some of my favourite looks and how you can achieve them yourself:                       Páll Óskar is known for his jumpsuits, and for his sequins. A sequined jumpsuit can definitely be a hard look to pull off—especially for an everyday outfit—but  this Matthew Williamson mini-dress gives you the same amount of pizazz. The feathers are just a bonus!                   Here’s a more casual look of his with a Sesame Street t-shirt and bright yellow puffer. The shirt is part of a 2009-2010 American Apparel collection that is unfortunately unavailable right now but I think this Bernie 2016 shirt will give you the same effect. RIP his campaign though. I’m obsessed with this gold sequin bomber! It’s bright, eye-catching—I’d wear it over a white silk minidress. You can get a similar look with this Lanvin jacket.                   Another sequin jacket? You bet. This one is a little more understated than the gold one above, but still adds a little oomph. This Victoria Beckham blazer will totally do the trick.                       I’m so into houndstooth right now and this Dsquared2 dress is gorgeous. They are one of my absolute favourite brands and always put out A+ designs. Besides, something as classic as this will never go out of style. Investment? Now recreating this look is…


Friday Inspiration: Björk Guðmundsdóttir

Friday Inspiration: Björk Guðmundsdóttir

Before Iceland became known as the nature-tourist-hub of the world, people usually thought of one thing when someone mentioned the country: Björk. The incredibly artist has done everything from music, to art, to activism, to movies. (Movies? You have got to check out Dancer in the Dark. If you don’t cry, you aren’t human.) She’s also though completely a fashion icon. From the swan dress to her headpieces, no one can replicate Björk’s unusual style. So for our first installment of our new feature, Friday Inspiration, she was the natural choice. Here are some of my favourite looks from her: I love the embroidery on this white Viktor & Rolf gown combined with her medieval hair. It’s so Björk. Björk has always been known for her headpieces but the beading on this simple Hussein Chalayan piece is exquisite. This picture is from 1998 and is shot by Benni Valsson. I’m pretty sure that’s mink. You could find a similar look with this Alena Akhmadullina jacket or this Elizabeth and James vest. I also did find this rabbit coat on AliExpress, which is gorgeous, but you never know when ordering from them. You could always risk it though. This Comme Des Garçons striped dress combined with her neon hair is timeless. Björk walking in Jean Paul Gautier’s Fall/Winter collection in 1995. This is a still from her “Pagan Poetry” video from 2001. That’s an Alexander McQueen (RIP) dress. Björk’s look for her Digital Media Preview at Sydney’s Carriageworks during Vivid Festival. PVC is definitely a hard trend to get into…literally, but if you’re ready to take the plunge, there’s no one better than Atsuko Kudo. I’m pretty sure the shirt that Björk is wearing is from there. You can find similar looks with this shirt or this dress. The headpiece is by James Merry. I have no idea where this…
