Mint flavour





Wearing: Everything vintage// Shoes from a shop in Milan// Headpiece from Etsy

Me and my photographer Karianne had so much fun discovering new locations this weekend, this mint green wall happened to match my look to perfection. The culottes were given to me by Karianne, and I absolutely love them! I'd been on the hunt for summer culottes for a while, and then they just fell down from the sky after her trip to New York.

The right camera and lens for good blog pictures
































































My photographer Karianne uses a Nikon D3000 with a Nikkor 50mm 1.8 lens and a professional blitz. When I take my pictures by myself I use a Canon 650D with a 50mm 1.8 lens. Before I used a system camera called Olympus Pen 1, where you just click and shoot. I missed being able to focus on the outfit, and the details - instead of having every single element in the background visible in the picture. 

Portrait lenses like the 50mm are quite cheap (around 1000NOK) and give a much more professional look than the standard 18-55 mm lens you get in the package. I've also used a Nikon 85mm f1.2 and a Sigma 85mm f1.4 which provided stunning results. By now you're probably wondering what those 1.something numbers are. They indicate how much light the lens will allow into the camera. The lower the number (1.2) the better the lens is for taking pictures in bad lighting conditions. 

The only problem with the 50 and 85mm is that you have to stand 5-10 meters away from the motif. Therefore my next purchase is a 35mm and a full format house (6D from Canon) The 35mm has more of a wide angle, which will enable me to take pictures inside my apartment - I've never been able to do that because I haven't got 5-10 meters to back up, to get everything in the picture. I hope this was helpful, don't hesitate to ask for more guides!

How to dress in fall colors


Take a look at nature around you, and then take a look in your closet. Which colors provide you with the same feeling as the great outdoors? Fall has a certain color palette which (to me) consists of mustard, burgundy, dark purple, chestnut brown, chocolate brown, dark and light wooly grey and powdery pink. Insted of using black as a uni-color I prefer to use white, which is a good bridge. But I also think using brown leather shoes and accessories look particularly nice with the autumn palette. If you'd like to learn more about dressing in color, see How to combine red, purple and magenta

How to combine red, purple and magenta











Wearing: Jacket by DVF// Skirt made by me// Thrifted blouse// JC shoes// Cavalli e nastri vintage hat

Today I realized that I'm actually wearing three different colors that don't really mix - unless you've got an open mind. How to combine red, purple and magenta you say; well, I'd advise to go with your gut feeling on what's your preference. Take the red color here for instance, the hat has a colder variety of red and my jacket has a mix of bright (warm) red and  blue which allows me to bridge over to a cold base color like purple. See other examples of mixing several different colors in Pleats please and Cashmere sweater.

Oh how I wish that the 60's and 70's looks and silhouettes weren't recreated for AW14! It hurts to much not having the wallet to indulge in the autumn trends.Source: Style.com

Shadow play


We've got a building covered in these plates near my house. I quite like the pastel color palette, especially paired with the last sunrays of summer.

Candy floss

















































Having a thing for candy tones these days, and I've realized that I usually wear 3-4 different color scales - pastel pink, pastel green, lilac, pink and orange and of course white when I'm having a day where I'd like to take a break from color.
