FEBRUARY WISH LIST

Skærmbillede 2018-01-31 kl. 20.49.15

I can’t believe it’s already a new month! Soon it will be Spring and I’m really longing for some sunshine and a little bit of warmth. This look has plenty of warm tones and I especially fell in love with this yellow Simon Miller bag. Isn’t it just beautiful? If the sun doesn’t show soon this would be the next best thing to shine for me.

BLUE SPLASHES AND CLEMENTINES

New_plates_01

On one of my first days here back in London I walked by a store in Chelsea called ‘Designer’s Guild’ where I fell madly in love with these plates with blue paint splashes. I think they are kind of fun and different. I bought two but I am considering going back for more since I am not sure where else to buy something similar.

In the background I have one of my newest magazine reads ‘Unconditional’ and I am so pleased with the aesthetics of it. It is so beautifully made and the cover just stood out to me when I was browsing ‘Wardour News’ in Soho not that long ago.

JANUARY WISH LIST

Skærmbillede 2018-01-08 kl. 23.41.10

Polka dots, stripes & statement earrings are all I want right now and why not all of the above at once? I am beginning to get much more into mixing of different prints instead of always wearing plain-colored clothing items. It is such a fun way to spice things up a bit and something I definitely need to do more. The earrings are from the extremely talented jewelry designer Nina Kastens. All the jewelry pieces she makes are gorgeous and this pair is no exception.

BEST OF LONDON – NOTTING HILL

Notting_Hill_Guide_03

If I had to choose one part of London I would stay or live in it would, without a doubt, be Notting Hill. Ever since I watched ‘Notting Hill’ with Hugh Grant & Julia Roberts for the first time (and I have watched it a million times since) I have been madly in love with this area. There is just something special about it, something indescribable. When I walk around this neighborhood I make sure to take it all in. Here are some of my favorite places that Notting Hill has on offer.

Granger & Co.

It wouldn’t even be possible to make a guide to Notting Hill without mentioning the king of Aussie brunch, Granger & Co. I have been there a vast number of times and I don’t think I would ever be tired of visiting. Make sure to taste the coconut bread. It is literally the dream!

Egg Break

This all day brunch spot specializes in eggs and they are very good at it. If you love a good avocado on sourdough toast this is definitely the place for you. You get served a mountain of avocado and I would go as far to say that there is almost more avocado than bread (which isn’t a bad thing at all)! If you are not a fan of eggs they serve up pancakes, porridge and chia pudding as well.

Notting Hill Farmer’s Market

One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday is to go to the local farmer’s market. Notting Hill has a great one located just behind Notting Hill Gate station (it can be a bit hard to find). Here you can buy fresh flowers, artisan breads, dairy products and all the seasonable fruits and veggies you can imagine (you don’t want to miss out on the cherries in summer).

Ledbury Road & Westbourne Grove

I have never been a huge fan of shopping on the high streets. I much prefer the quieter areas such as Ledbury Road and Westbourne Grove (especially the west end). These streets just have all the right boutiques and shops. My favorites include Matches Fashion, A.P.C, Sandro, Joseph and Aimé.

NOVEMBER WISH LIST

It seems that all I have on my mind at the moment are checks and corduroy! It is without a doubt my favorite trends for this season. This light green pair of corduroy trousers goes very well with the darker blue tones for a more colorful autumn outfit.

A WINE-BURGUNDY LOVE STORY

Bag A.P.C.

It was sort of love at first sight when I came across this beautiful wine-burgundy colored bag at my latest online shopping trip. I do love a bit of online shopping and it can sometimes be a bit of a weakness though a have to say that I am a very organized shopper who rarely do impulse buying. I am more the type who considers everything for too long until it’s all gone. This was no exception. I saw it online and debated with myself back and forth if I should really buy it. Then I saw a girl on the tube wearing this bag (and at this point I hadn’t even seen it in real life as I couldn’t find it in any stores across London) and then I just knew I had to click it home. A massive thank you to that girl as I truly love it!

JUNE WISH LIST

Sweater Ganni// Trousers By Malene Birger// Espadrilles Vince// Bag Ganni
.
Orange is definitely the color of the season (just like yellow was last summer). It is the perfect subtle orange. Not to bright or neon. Ganni has just released their pre-fall collection and oh my it is beautiful and it contains a lot of orange pieces. I imagine wearing the sweater on a chilly summer night while watching the sun go down in the horizon. I wouldn’t mind bringing it with me this summer holiday where I will spend a lot of my time in the family summerhouse by the sea.
As you might have seen as well the espadrilles have got a serious comeback this season. They are everywhere at the moment (a long side its fellow buddy the ever-so-chic straw bag). I really need to get myself a pair as soon as possible (or should I say as soon as my bank account allows me, yep I have definitely had a ‘feeling spendy’ moment lately, ups).
