The scent of summer


Det blir en stund mellom blogginnleggene nå i sommer - håper dere tilgir meg! Jeg holder på å skanne tonnevis av eldgamle familiebilder, i tillegg til å møte venner og familie. Her er noen bilder jeg nesten hadde "glemt" som mannen tok av meg i starten av juni da syrinene blomstret som mest. Noe det beste med sommeren, mener jeg, er at Rodeløkka kolonihager har åpent for alle. Jeg prøver å gå gjennom hagen så ofte som mulig, for fylle sjelen med indre ro og inndra en berusende duft av de vakreste blomstene på jord.

Her har jeg satt sammen et antrekk med en blanding av vintage, butikkjede-kupp og nye sko. Alt til en verdi av 1500 kroner.

Some time pass by between my posts this summer - I hope you forgive me! I'm currently scanning tons of old family photos, in addition to meeting friends and family. Here's some photos I'd almost forgot that my husband took during the start of June when the lilacs flourished as most. Some of the very best things with the summer, I think, is that Rodeløkka allotment gardens are open for the public. I try to walk through the gardens as often as I can, to fill my sould with inner piece and breathe in the intoxicating scent of the most beautiful flowers on earth.

Here, I've composed an outfit with a mix of vintage, chains store bargains and new shoes. All with a value in total of 1500 NOK.

Silk dress from a flea market (costing 5 NOK), handbag from Gina Tricot (249 NOK), necklace from Zara and shoes from Clarks bought at Shoe Lounge.

I've been given so many compliments for this handbag. Everybody thinks it's Chanel... I have it in blue velvet too.

 
The Rodeløkka allotment gardens - a peaceful place.

It's very challenging to find lovely shoes for my elephant feet. I discovered the shoe brand Clarks when I went to Shoe Lounge at Majorstuen. This leather pair is in size 42 and they are SO comfy!

 I bought this necklace years ago at Zara - and I even wore it at our wedding. It's become my favourite necklace.
