Its beginning to look at lot like Christmas in Norway. The temperature is dropping and on sunday we had a snowstorm. I like that we get a white Christmas, it calls for hot chocolate, lazy days watching movies and lots of good food. Wish you all a wonderful Christmas!

Christmas is just a couple of days away. I cant believe how fast this fall went, its like it was just August, and I was in New York. However, the Norwegian winter has been cruel so far, much colder than it has been in years. I am covering up in fake fur, boots and layers of wool. I am almost done with all my christmas presents and this weekend we are going to pick up a tree. I cant help but feeling blessed, the most important about Christmas to me, is to be around the people I love. Hope you all are enjoying the pre Christmas festivities!

Oh, yes I was one of those who got in line at 08.00 in the morning to snatch up my favorite pieces from the Lanvin for H&M collection. I was very happy when I got my hands on my two favorite dresses, the pink and the purple asymmetrical dress. At our Christmas party last friday, I wore the pink dress, and I have never gotten so many compliments in my life. A day to remember. Did you guys buy anything from the collection?

Sorry for being such a bad blogger. Sometimes it is just necessary to shut down. I have spent the last two and a half weeks in LA with friends. Had a wonderful time, have charged my batteries and ready for new and exciting action. Drove up the coast to San Luis Opisbo with my husband, spent a wonderful couple of days at Sycamore Springs and Hadsten House in Solvang. Celebrated Halloween with lots of fascinating people and got dressed up as Sammy Jo from Dynasty. Managed to drag my amazing friends to some shopping in Beverly Hills, were I among other things picked up this Rocco bag from Alexander Wang. Its already a favorite in my closet! Now I am off to check out what you all have been doing this past couple of weeks.

I love the crisp fall weather in Oslo. The air is so clean and the colors are beautiful, so I try ro spend as much time outside as possible. One of the best things about fall is lounging around in big sweaters, hot chocolate and spending time inside by the fire. What do you love about fall?

This is what I wore to the G-Star Raw show. Felt like dressing up. I actually bought this dress on a sale 1 hour before I went to Pier 92. I was there to see the show and whatch Magnus Carlsen (the Norwegian chess player amd G-Star Raw model) walk the red carpet with Liv Tyler. Loved the vibe backstage after the show. Bumped into Kelly Osbourne, a Norwegian top model and some True Blood stars. Afterwards we went to Cipriani for dinner and G-Star afterparty and Mulberryparty. Had an amazing time!
Outfit: Dress from a local shop in NY (reminds me of a dress of the Stella McCartney summercollection, withouth the hefty price tag), shoes from Steve Madden and vintage Chanel handbag.

In case you have been wondering were I have been, its been madness at New York Fashion Week. Working 17-hours days, but also having some fun between going to shows, interviews and parties. You can also follow my blog at minMote.no, its not always easy to update when I am working that much.
Anyways, here I am at the Mulberry show at Soho House, such a cool and laidback show. Loved the setting at the roof, the strong colors in the collection and of course the handbags and boots. I am dying for an Alexa handbag with zebra stripes for spring!
Outfit: Top from Gina Tricot, pants from Filippa K, bracelet from Mango and shoes from Vince Cameo.

So many changes have been made in the last week. I am cherishing the last of summer days and the crisp fall mornings and evenings. Next week I am off to New York Fashion Week, maybe I will see you there?
Have a great weekend!

So sorry for being a bad blogger. Between Fashion Weeks, working 24/7 and traveling, there has been little time left. Just wanted to share a photo from Stockholm Streetstyle that was taken during Copenhagen Fashion Week. I had a great time in spite of the rain, met a lot of exciting people and saw lots of fashion shows. Hope you all are well and ready for fall fashion. I am sorry to see the summer weather disappear, but its great to gear up for a new season!

Even though I am getting geared up for fall fashion, I am not ready to leave those long summer nights behind. Hopefully, we will have a late and warm summer through september here in Oslo. I hope you all are enjoying your summer, wherever you are in the world. I am totally in love with my new wedges from Jeffrey Campbell, perfect for the last part of summer, but also lovely with tights and skirts for fall.

I find myself drawn to light leather this summer. Paired with cotton t-shirts and heels, it is quickly becoming a staple in my wardrobe. On my birthday I actually went to a summer sale and picked up this skirt, a blue and black leopard dress, a jacket and another leather skirt with linings for a bargain.
Summervacation is only a few days away and I cant wait to just relax by the ocean and soak up the sun in my new bikinis. Thank you for all the nice comments on my birthday, I really appriciate your feedback and support!

Yesterday I celebrated my birthday with lots of good friends, champagne and good food. I had an amazing time and got lots of nice presents. Love, love, love the dress from River Island that I picked up in London after the SATC-interviews. I am guessing it will be used frequently this summer. I really cant wait for my summer vacation to start, I am longing for days spent at the beach just relaxing, reading crime novels and magazines.
Outfit: Dress from River Island, Shoes from Dorothy Perkins, belt vintage, bracelet from US.

This is what I was wearing to the birthdayparty of my cousin Helga the other day. Love the new lace jacket that I picked up in London between the SATC-interviews. I am so happy the weather is getting warmer and that theres no need to cover up. The Chanel-tattos on my wrist are really a favorite, they have been staying on for almost a week now!

Hope you all are well. This week has been extra crazy and on friday I was lucky enough to travel to London to meet the whole cast of Sex and The City2. It was a huge experience and so much fun, I dont know were to start to telling you about it. I got to meet all the girls, Michael Patrick King (so nice!) and Chris North at Claridges for some afternoon tea. I was wearing a dress by Norwegian designer Leila Hafzi and it was a huge hit with everyone, and a real icebreaker when you are journalist number 200 in line. The interview is in english, so you can all watch it here at minMote. We are going to publish lots more leading up to the premiere on friday, so stay tuned.

Last week we spent a whole day playing dress up in the studio. Love the looks and we had such a fun day working it in front of the camera, taking new pictures for minMote. The red dress (a favorite) is vintage, borrowed from a very cool store called Flashdance in Oslo, while I am wearing a dress from H&M Fashion Against Collection (which will be available in stores tomorrow) in the last picture. Shoes are from Aldo. I am thinking about buying both dresses, what do you think?

So sorry for missing in action, but there was something wrong with mye Google account. At least I figured it out! Its been a hectic few weeks with lots to do. A couple of days ago I was invited to check out Mulberrys fall collection. Must say that I like the brand better and better, and I really fell for the Alexa bag in the picture. Love the print for fall, so cool and different. Should I get it? Its not a classic color, but I love the print. If you want to see more pictures of the collection, you can check out my other post here. Really love the trenchcoat, but I also got myself a cool army jacket, cant wait to wear it.
Hope you all are having a wonderful week!
Outfit: Trench from Zara, jeans from BikBok, Cloggs from Jeffrey Campell, bag is Mulberry Alexa from fall line.

In my favorite trenchcoat at the moment. Jacket and jeans from Zara, shoes from Aldo.
The cloggs will be a huge part of my summer wardrobe. Jacket from Tonica, top from Cubus, Mih jeans and Jeffrey Campell cloggs. Vintage Chanel handbag.
Wonderful french food and wine. Visiting a museum is a must. We opted for the YSL exhibition and it was a wonderful experience. I am a huge fan of the late designers work and spent hours admiring the collections on display. Highly recommended.
Sharing some more photos from our trip to Paris. Wish I was there right now! Sun, warmer weather, open toe shoes and amazing food and wine are just some of the allures of the french capital. I planned on a lot of shopping, but ended up with almost nothing, which have never happened before. However, I decided the weather was much to nice for shopping, and that I would rather enjoy my days of with my husband, drinking wine and enjoying the marvels of french food. Have a great weekend!

Spent easter in Paris drinking wine and enjoying Spring at the sidewalk cafès. After weeks of hard work is was nothing short of amazing, and there is quite something about Paris in the Spring that holds a special kind of allure. We stayed at a wonderful hotel with a Spa and just enjoyed life to its fullest. I almost did not do any shopping (gasp), but ended up having an amazing time just relaxing, soaking up the sun and the culture. But I did end up getting those very cool Jeffrey Campell cloggs on ebay before I left, love them!
Outfit: Jacket secondhand, shirt and tights from Gina Tricot, t-shirt from GAP, vintage Chanel handbag and Jeffrey Campell shoes.

Yesterday I was invited to the Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards in Oslo. I had a blast relaxing with friends and listening to A1. Had a minor fashion crisis before going out, but picked up this light pink dress at the last minute. It felt wonderful dressing in lighter colors and I love the neckdetail. Pictured with Eva-Charlotte Stenberg, a TV-presenter in Norway, such a lovely girl. Today I am exhausted, but it was a great party, so all worth it. Have a lovely weekend!
Outfit: Blazer from Zara, Dress fra H&M, Boots from Whyred and a vintage clutch.

Bought this wonderful fluffy jacket in Copenhagen while running around between Fashion Shows. Love the purple color, the picture does not do it any justice. Thank you for all your nice comments! I am finally feeling a little better and getting my energy back, it has been 2 very hectic and fun months. As you can see, it is still a lot of snow, but its slowly starting to melt. Oh, and I just ordered these, how fab, cant wait until they arrive!

Went shopping yesterday and found the perfect trenchcoat for spring. For me the cut, style and shape is very important. Love the puff sleeves on this one, definitely a keeper from Zara. Cant wait for warmer weather and the sun. Sorry for not blogging as much as usual. Being sick really wiped me out and lately I have had zero energy. Hope to relax this weekend and get my energy back. I am working on several exciting projects that I will share with you soon. Hope you all are well and having a great week!

Thanks for all of your lovely comments! I have spent the last week inside with lumonia, so have been pretty out of it. But I am finally starting to feel a little better. Here are to outfits from Copenhagen Fashion Week, I had an amazing time running from show to show. Oh, and check out Amlul for more pictures. I met Gala in Copenhagen and she is such a lovely girl with an amazing sense of style. Have a great weekend!

Veronica B. Vallenes is the seasons debutant
Loved her clean lines and 80s references
Mardou & Dean rocked, ever so cool
Beautiful dresses at TSH
Amazing brides at Leila Hafzi
Dark, smoldering and mysterious at Epilogue
Its been three both amazing and exhausting weeks. I have been travelling and running from shows to shows, with very few breaths and hours of sleep in between. What I am left with is a notion that designers simply are going for their signature looks for fall, wether its classic and clean, funny and colorful, edgy and mysterious. I must say that there are few suprises for fall, we have seen a lot of the same before. However, how you decide to play with fashion and put it together is on a whole different level. Hope you enjoy my pictures, I am sorry for not updating more, but it has been in one word: Crazy. Hope you all are having an amazing weekend!

Sorry for being missing in action for so long. I have spent the last 4 days in Sweden at Stockholm Fashion Week. It has been hectic, intense, and fun! I have been sitting front row, interviewed designers and others, appeared on TV about fashion and running around in the snowstorm like crazy, always trying to catch the next fashion show. Here I am talking to one of my favorite designers, Carin Wester, she has the most amazing designs and shoes. Such a cool picture, dont you think? Anyway, I wil update more over the weekend and visit you all to se what you have been up to this last week. Have a great Thursday!
