Hot in The City

The dress my mum got me as a gift. My
husband thought it matched the flowers.

My mum said it looked like a dress she had in the 70s, and
perfect for the Riviera. Now, Oslo might not be the same, but
yesterday was close enough in temperature. Its so
hot, its difficult to know what to wear.

We found the dress in a store were I usually
never shop. I was amazed that they would
carry something like it. The best part, the
price, at 10 dollars. Quite the bargain and
a wonderful gift!

I am a sucker for dresses, they always put
me in a good mood. I love the pattern of this
dress, the colors and the tie belt.
The white wedges I wore the other night,
gave me the most horrible blisters, so I had
to wear some shoes that would not do any more damage.
We had the best massages at Dragonfly, a must if you ever
visit Oslo. Afterwards I was spaced out...

Dress: Kappahl
Shoes: Oasis
Handbag: Zara
Sunnies: H&M
Bracelets: Vintage & H&M
Denne kjolen fikk jeg som gave av moren min i forrige uke, og den er en favoritt i den sommervarmen vi opplever nå. I går var vi på Dragonfly, hvor vi fikk deilig massasje(anbefales)og etterpå dro vi til New Orleans og spiste Cajun. Idag var jeg en tur på Huk og badet, fantastisk temperatur. Håper dere hygger dere i sommervarmen!
So, this is the dress my mum got me and I could not love it more. I do think it has a 70s element in the print. The temperature here is insane, so only light cotton will do. I am enjoying it (and my last week of vacation) to the fullest. Yesterday we got massages(I will do a separate post on Dragonfly, since its one of my favorites)and went out for some Cajun dinner afterwards. It was a perfect day. Today, I have been to the beach with a friend and soaked up the sun. Hope you are having a great weekend!

How wonderful you look in this dress-I really love the colour combinations! Do you know, where I wore dresses earlier this week with high sandals, I have had blisters too-haha!! I've been in flip flops for a couple of days now! You are certainly making the most of your vacation, with these lovely outings and its so nice to have the sunny weather at long last!!

You look wonderful in the dress and the color is amazing against your skin! I love dresses too, but recently I find them hard to work with because I'm always on the run and I like to be more comfortable.

Savvy Gal sa...

LOVE the dress, amazing colors! your mom has great taste too :)

my summer is pretty good today, my family went to the farmer's market (aka food market with local fruits & vegetables) and ran into my friend who works at the bagel stand :) I also went book shopping & ate a sandwich al fresco :)

You look beautiful in that dress

Kristiane sa...

Livet er jaggu herlig når man finner slike plagg til en slikk og ingenting!
Nei, det er heldigvis ikke kaldt i Bergen om dagen, har vel omtrent samme temperaturer som dere (hvis det nå er i Oslo du befinner deg). Er glad jeg kom over bloggen din, skal følge med!

So Here "Flower Child" is more appropriate than ever !!! You're frankly made for "Seventies style", and I really like the mix with these sexy sandals . . .

A Bientôt, Antoine

Hey Silje, I sent you an email with help on your banner in answer to your question you left on my page.
I adore this dress! Your mum has great taste, it's so adorable and I wish I owned it!

Style Syrup sa...

You wear dresses so well! So pretty. I think the bright floral print really suits you. It does look like a 70's inspired dress but with a modern twist - perfect!
It is funny but wonderful thing when you find things in stores you would never expect too.

I have linked your wonderful blog by the way.

Songy sa...

Love the ZARA bag. It's tragic that we don't have ZARA and H&M in Australia. I really miss them. I used to go into boutiques in Paris every weekend. dusty pink is my newly found colour to try. thanks.

Amie sa...

For en nydelig kjole! Elsker fargene og mønsteret. Jeg misunner deg vesken...

Du ses helt fantasitisk ut!
Et spørsmål. Jeg skal en kjapp tur til Oslo i morgen. Har du tips til vintage-shopping så nær Karl Johan som mulig? Har dårlig tid!:-)

Arielle sa...

wow you have the greatest patterns on your dresses and that one fits wonderfully on you. the first picture next to the flowers is amazing! it does match!

lara sa...

your bag is great and your dress matches so well with the flowers next to you :)

Siljesfashion sa...

Hei Elisabeth. Tusen takk! Ja, dra på UFF Underground ved Kirkeristen, det er 3 min fra Karl Johan, så det er det beste hvis du er i sentrum (og de har mye fint). Hvis du ikke vet hvor det er går du til glassmagasinet. Når du står og ser nedover ser du Indiska, så er det Morris og rundt hjørnet ligger UFF nede i kjelleren. Lykke til!
