Personal Style 

As much as we all love to dress up from head to toe – high heels, curly hair, lashes,  a full face of makeup – there is something so special about jumping into the clothes that are just YOU. I’ve been thinking a lot about personal style and allthough I am a person that loves to wear all different kinds of styles there’s always a style that just represents the plain and natural me.

In this post I’ve tried to put together an outfit that represents my personal style. This is me, all chill, no make up, and my hair tied in a messy bun, because why not? The photos are shot on the most beautiful location that I know, near the sea at our cabin in the south of Norway. I’ve been spending my summers at this place since the age of one and there’s something so special about coming back every year to this place that no matter what, will always stay the same.

Outfit Details:
Body – BikBok | Jeans – Levi’s | Watch – Daniel Wellington | Shoes – Converse(slightly bitten off at the heel thanks to my very kind dog)

What do you feel represents your personal style? And do you have a place that always feels like home to you?

Tomorrow I travel to Nice, France, and I am super excited! Make sure to follow all my social media linked below if you want to keep up with my trip and get some outfit sneak peeks!

Summer Nights

Where: Sørenga, Oslo

An area by the seaside of Oslo, with lots of bathing space, restaurants and city life. We chose to retreat to the calmer side in the shadows of the dock because the weather was especially hot this day.

I’ve recently been growing more and more fond of my own city. Maybe it’s the summer weather? Anyway I’ve been exploring more places that I don’t usually hang out at. I’ve also been walking around by myself, exploring and enjoying the peaceful seaside of the city. Oslo has been amazing these last few days, I really hope the weather stays like this all summer. A girl can dream, right?

OOTD: Top – BikBok | Bikini – BikBok | Jeans – BikBok | Watch – Daniel Wellington | Shoes – Converse | Sunglasses – Pretty Little Thing

Do I shop my outfits any other places than BikBok? Apparently not, haha.

How has your summer been so far? Is it hot in your country?

Colorful Walls

Where: a parking lot near Grønland in Oslo, which I discovered the other day is now a building area. Thought I’d use these “old” photos to reminisce about this little grafitti wall with its bright colors.

Time for a Haul

Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you’ve all come off to a good start of 2017! As the title implies: New Year, New Me, New Clothes. Well, not really. I’m actually quite happy with where I am as a person now and for the new year I will try to embrace that and develop even more as a person. Clothingwise I haven’t really found much of any interest in the sales this season, but there are a few pieces that I just couldn’t resist(some of them weren’t even on sale, I just had to have them)!

BikBok Billy Pullover in Pastel Pink.

I feel like this is the type of sweather that you don’t even need to touch to know that it’s soft, you can just see it. And it’s so soft. I’m also loving this pastel pink color as it really brightens up any outfit for winter.

BikBok Will t-shirt with Roses.

I just thought this t-shirt was so cool and unique, and at the same time very simple. Perfect to spice up an all black outfit. I later found out that there’s another version of this t-shirt with little birds on it and it’s so pretty. Perfect to combine with light denim in the summer. I will go back to get it. (Find it here).

BikBok Mia Sweater, Furry Black.

I used to own a sweater like this and I loved it so much, but somehow it just disappeared and I’ve never found it again. So when I found this (almost) replica of it I got really happy. It’s super fluffy and cosy and also really warm.

The next one isn’t clothing, but this beautiful notebook. If you didn’t know I am a great Harry Potter fan and this classic black book caught my eye instantly. Not to mention, I have an obsession for pretty stationairy. The only problem is that it’s so pretty that I don’t want to waste the use of it. I want to use it for something really nice. Any ideas?

img_3765

Lastly I bought this white lace bralette from Lindex tha I just found so delicate and pretty. It made me think that I need to find a way to combine lace more in my outfits, it can be so beautiful if worn the right way.

Thank you so much for reading. As you may see, I’ve done some small changes to my design. I’m really working on keeping my blog top quality and well written for the new year so that I can be proud of everything I post. I’m thinking about doing a Q&A post some time in the near future as well, so if you have any questions you’re dying to get answered, please include them in your comment, that would mean a lot! Hope you’re all having a great day. You’re all amazing.

Exploring the Streets of Oslo

I just love living in the city. The raving city life, all the people buzzing around, the tiny cafes on every street corner and the diversity of people and buildings all in one place. On Sunday, me and my friend Elise, decided to explore. We wanted to take some cool pictures and we knew excactly where we could get them.

We went to Grünerløkka in Oslo. Sundays are always market days at Grünerløkka, which means the streets are full of life and there’s always something to look at. Not to mention, the street art around the area of BLÅ is just amazing. This whole area is so urban and exiting.

This last wall painting is my favorite. I see it everytime I take the tram home from the city. Shows how amazing a childs imagination is in such a sweet way.

This one became a post with more pictures and less words, because sometimes I just feel the pictures tell the entire story for themselves. Quite true that a picture says more than a thousand words.

Wednesday’s Shopping Trip

So, as I mentioned in my previous blog post, me and my friend, Elise, had a little shopping trip on Wednesday. As I also mentioned, I wasn’t really supposed to buy anything. I guess you all probably see how well that plan went… Shopping ban on you from now on, Ingrid.

Anyways, I thought I’d run you through what I bought as I am truly pleased with everything and will without doubt be wearing them a lot. All of the pieces, especially the two jackets, are things I’ve been thinking about buying for a long time. Justifyes spending money on them a little more, right?….

1. MONKI Bomber Jacket.

img_3405img_3404

As some of you may recall I did a blog post a long time ago along the lines of “Fall Essentials” where I raged about the bomber jackets and how much I wanted one. Thing is, every time I’ve tried one on in the store I’ve just felt like it didn’t suit me at all or just made me look puffy and weird, so when I finally came across one that suited me I just had to purchase it, even though it’s a little bit cold for one now. A bomber jacket is a great transition jacket for both Fall and Spring, so I will definitely get a lot of use out of this one. (Will probably wear it in Winter as well, yolo)

2. MONKI Coat.

Next up, this very cute black coat which I think will be perfect for the more dressed up occations. I’ve figured that a coat will never go off trend and is therefore always the perfect Fall/Winter jacket. This one can also be worn in many different ways, opened or closed, depending on what style you are going for.

3. MONKI Burgundy Scarf.

Can you tell we spend a lot of time in Monki? Hahah.
Monki is actually one of my favorite clothing stores, and even though I only went for basic clothing this time, they have so many unique and colorful pieces. Especially their sock collection, loving it, haha. Anyways, a huge blanket scarf always comes in handy in these cold months and as I only have a grey one I thought I needed one with some color as well. I also really want to get a scarf in mustard, but this time I went for burgundy.

4. BikBok Burgundy Headband.

img_3417

I’m actually really about the headbands these days as they serve both the purpose of looking pretty as well as keeping your ears warm. I spotted this perfect velvet headband near the cashier desk at BikBok and I knew I had to pick it up. It is so soft and comfy, and at the same time makes me look oh so, Blair Waldorf-y(in a good way).

5. BikBok Beige Pants.

I spotted these pants at BikBok and I told my friend that “I really want a pair of pants like these, but I never know when I could wear them as I feel they are so formal!”
We then came to the agreement that I could wear the pants whenever I wanted to and when I saw how well they fitted me, especially in the waist, I was sold. These pants are literally so comfortable as well. It’s like wearing PJ’s to a party, yayy. Definitely hope to get a lot of use outta these.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Friday and heading in for a wonderful weekend as well! I will hopefully get a fun outfit post up on Sunday/Monday!

PS: I passed 200 followers on here the other day! Thank you soo much to everyone for all your support and being so lovely all the time. It means the world. x

PPS: I have an Instagram and it’s @ingsepingsen and it’s kinda cool.

OOTD: Blue Jeans, White Shirt

Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
It was like, James Dean, for sure
You’re so fresh to death and sick as ca-cancer

Saturday and a weekend off from work, I am delighted and in the most chilled out mood you could ever imagine. Today’s outfit is old school and classic with a little bit of that 50’s denim vibe. I sometimes forget how much I love the simplicity of the combination white shirt and denim, it can never really go wrong. The black belt was something I found in the back of my closet today, I have no idea where it came from. What a hidden treasure.

Fall hasn’t seemed to hit Oslo by it’s full power yet, so we are still enjoying the last sunbeams of summer and the opportunity to wear t-shirts. I can feel the cold autumn wind around the corner, though, so it probably won’t be long before you see me in scarfs and knitted sweaters.

Hope you’re all having an amazing Saturday! What are you up to today?
