What I wore Wednesday: colour bonanza!

Another work outfit, Im rather pleased with this one, one of my absolute favourites! :) Goin a little crazy colourwise, just the way I like it. :P *hehehe*

I was out shopping with my mum when the sales assistant in a clothing shop approached me with her praises for my outfit, in particular the skirt. :) One of the best compliments ever received, my mum just looked  at me, quite surprised. :) We were quite taken aback the two of us, its not everyday I get complimented by strangers and not to forget a sales assistant in a clothing store. ;) My mum always tells me to go easy on the shopping, perhaps she wont mention it again, as she now has learned that her daughter got style. ;) Haha! I wish *laughs*

A Marilyn moment as the wind grabs my skirt. I love the poooofiness of this skirt though. :)

I changed the flats for my nude pumps just to see how it panned out. I think this combo is ok as well. :)

What Im wearing:

Top from H&M (new)
Cardigan from H&M (new)
Skirt from Gudrun Sjoden
Flats from Vagabond (oldies)
Nude pumps from Geox

Up in the sky

A sunday in the beginning of June we attended an airshow at the local airport. This event was arranged to celebrate the airport being 75 years! :) I have always been fascinated by planes so I was quite excited! :) Me and nearly 35000 visitors during the weekend, very popular show indeed!! :)

A closeup of the same plane as in the first picture. This is an Antonov.

One of my favourite planes at the show, a seaplane called Catalina G-PBYA.

I particulary liked the lady in the front. ;)

Here I am then, posing as miss pick me up, *laughs* Dont I look the part? *lol* Im workin this very typical Norwegian attire, a parka jacket with jeans and sneakers. My parka is somewhat unusual in colour, most tend to wear black, brown or grey. But Im all for bright colours as you may know, this colour is called arctic. Although it was a sunny day, a cold wind was blowin so I resorted to my parka and hoodie with jeans.

One of the highlights during the day was this acrobat perfomance by the british team called Aerostar Formation. I dont know how many times I ooohed and aaaahed, a spectacular show indeed!!

More pictures to come in another post. :)

What I wore Wednesday: Goin in circles

This is what I wore to work a couple of weeks ago, showing my everlasting love for Boden. :) I never thought I should be mad about circles, but here we go. ;) As always I threw on a cardigan for good measure or for me being a freeezing stick. ;) Hehehee. However I did not freeze this day but somehow I always feel "naked" without a cardi.

Sorry for the headless chicken shots but my serious face didnt cut it, I looked like crankypants. ;)

One without the cardi to show the dress to the fullest while my doggie is having a sit down. :) She can sit like that for hours, just peering out in the distance, watching for cars, people, cats, whatever grabs her attention. :)

What Im wearing:

Cardigan from H&M (new)
Dress from Boden (new)
Flats from Vagabond (old)

Well it was about time to let my new maxidress roam the office and whatnot. :) This is my first maxi, Im soooo excited cause I have been thinking maxis were not for me. This dress proved me wrong, luckily. ;) Im head over heals in love with the print, thats what first caught my eye, yea I know Im mad about prints, cant help it sorry. :P

I tossed the cardi away for a moment, I even got a little sunburned on my shoulders and upper arms during that hot week.

What I wore Wednesday - 23/05/12

Finally, summer arrived! for one week at least. ;) My dresses had all been lingering for too long in the closet, time to let them loooooose! :)

Endelig ble det sommer på oss også, iallefall for en uke. ;) Skal se at det ble første og siste smak av sommer for  denne gang, man vet jo aldri på disse kanter av verden. :) Endelig fikk jeg tatt kjolene mine på luftings, begynner med denne herlige paisley varianten som for øvrig er en nyanskaffelse. :)

Here I have unbuttoned the cardigan, showing more of the beautiful paisley print.

A close up, love the mix of colours in this dress, lime, pink, purple, blue. :)

Dress from Indiska (brand new)
Cardigan from H&M (2012)
