Bold

My hair is cut supershort again - no more traces of the wrong hair colour I got in December. Back to being a natural blonde... My hair is only about 2 centimetres long at the moment, so I use more make-up in the mornings to avoid looking too boyish. I love me a bold lip and bought some new lipstick to try out. My all time favourite lippie is made by Chanel. I bought the perfect pink at &OtherStories and really like the easiness of these lip pencils by Clinique

Style crush: Lucy Chadwick

Gallerista Lucy Chadwick has it. Based in NY, but born in London town - she combines British quirkiness (those cool cat eye glasses!) and American tomboy style. She loves wearing jeans, a simple white shirt, chunky knits and wears her hair in a messy top knot. Clean, simple, effortless and never overdone. I would love to have her wardrobe...

The Selby made a film of her in her Brooklyn home and upstate refuge - a converted barn - for ZARA, click here.


What I loved... in March

5.4.14

March was a rollercoaster of month - it went by so quickly. Had a girl's lunch with a friend (she's having twin boys in a couple of months!). Went dancing and spent the day after curled up in bed - happy tired. Had a day off to watch Planes with my nephew and bake him a birthday cake shaped like a space shuttle. Felt a bit like competing in a Bake Off. Spent two weekends DIY-ing - the new kitchen cabinets look fab and I love my new blue sofa. Enjoyed the first days of Spring - meeting up with friends on a sunny spot. Visited the MoMu for a preview of the new exhibition. Had my hair cut supershort - byebye wrong hair colour...

Label love: Won Hundred

31.3.14


My love for Scandinavian clothes is no secret. Danish brand Won Hundred designs clothes that seem to be really simple, but always have a rock-'n-roll-edge. The brand was founded by Nikolaj Nielsen some ten years ago and is still going strong. In search of refined and clean lines, the brand loves an understated design - the current collection for SS '14  features classic feminine styles and sporty elements. The prints are kept to a minimum and the silhouettes are fresh and clean. Personality is key, the person wearing the clothes should shine through. Just how I like it...
