Just popping by to showcase my living-out-of-five-suitcases look. Only ten more days until the man and I move into our new apartment (I’ll post photos – if people are interested?) and I couldn’t be more ready. There’s just nothing like leafing through a freshly organized garment rack, am I right? (Ok, that sentence was pretty embarrassing.) Anywho, can’t wait to show you my new neighborhood through accessory shots! Stay tuned.

If It Ain’t Baroque

If It Ain't BaroqueIf It Ain't BaroqueIf It Ain't Baroque

Greetings from the motherland!

After a brief visit to Copenhagen and an Easter spent sorting through the tsunami of clothes covering my mom’s living room floor, I’ve finally and officially inserted myself back into the Oslo way of life. (And by way of life I mean reverting to those glorious teenage years of complete parental funding, built-in laundry services and unnecessary line of life inquiries which can only be met with exasperated eye rolls and demonstrative door slamming.) Getting a job and moving into an adult apartment is, however, on the immediate agenda. (If anyone’s hiring in fashion/media, please let me know!)

With all the moving madness, blog photos have been few and far between these past couple of weeks. But I did manage to have my best friend, Mari, grab some shots of my latest obsession. How beyond is this vintage Oscar de la Renta choker?! You know what they say: If it ain’t baroque, don’t fix it. (Couldn’t resist!)

The Fluke

The FlukeThe FlukeWith just under two weeks left in NYC and most of my many, many shoes spread across six suitcases, I spent my second-to-last weekend in the city shooting bags beneath the Brooklyn Bridge (pretty fitting, if you ask me). I’ve styled Roztayger‘s lookbooks for the past few years, but, this season, the gorgeous Neely called out sick, so yours truly stepped in as the resident model. So there I was, boasting some very bare legs in frigid temperatures on the DUMBO boardwalk. And although they say you shouldn’t feed the models, we all know that’s crap. After four hours of shooting, we stuffed our faces at Shake Shack.

Spring Bling

It’s a truth universally acknowledged…the slightest sign of spring sun and I head straight for hot pink. I guess it’s my happy place.

Speaking of happy placesβ€”there’s something about packing on a pile of accessories that gets me really pumped. J. Crew has really stepped up their costume jewelry selection this season and, needless to say, I’ve balled out. Among the many pieces that I couldn’t resist was the Lulu Frost-designed star necklace that I’m wearing in the photos above. Fun, right? Otherwise, a wrist full of clanky bracelets and my favorite Dior pearls have been earmarked as my accessory staples this spring. I may also throw some obnoxious ’80s chokers into the mix. We’ll see.

For those of you who can’t be bothered with baubles, I promise there are full outfit shots coming your way soon!
