I have an irresistible bag crush after a long while – I cannot take my eyes off The Row’s ‘Double Circle’ fur clutch. Too bad that it comes in mink fur (I do a have problem with that) and its price tag is pretty steep. The design is still beautiful, and that is why I wanted to include the bag in this entry.
The good news is that they are designing more bags at Totême, including one in fake fur worn by Giedre Dukauskaite in the picture above. Hopefully that bag comes out soon, so I could wear it with my winter coats… fingers crossed!
I decided to treat myself and bought the Lazzi tights today after a long conversation with myself – I was quite convinced that any tights would create this look and why not, but these tights are so comfy that I never want to take them off. I may as well order another pair!
This is what my ideal fall uniform looks like, well, pretty much every season; it consists of classic pieces that are my everyday go-tos, but the silhouette feels very now. It would save me from any wardrobe crisis and I would just throw over one of my favourite coats and get going!
THE CITY is an ode to New York, a city that serves as a constant inspiration for Totême. This is, in my opinion, the best campaign the brand has produced so far! The video (see it here) captures everything I love about the city and the brand. And if you happen to be after a chic coat edit, look no further.
Right now all I want is to tie up my hair and get my hands on that logo blouse, which is probably coming out soon?
I noticed the other day that a majority of the recent images I have saved on Instagram are from Sophie Bille Brahe‘s latest collection known as the Aphrodite. I have included here some of my top pieces, which are the Sandro earring (above), Croissant de Ensemble ring and Bracelet de Tennis.
In my wildest dreams I would wear all of these pieces at once. You can shop the collection here!

As it happens, I lost my favourite pair of Céline sunnies the other week and I will travel to Montenegro on the 1st of September for a week. Therefore a new pair would do, especially this rectangular cat-eye style from the same brand. They are from last season, but I might still be able to get my hands on them.
This one is a detail shot from the second day at Flow Festival, when I wore my new cape from Totême. Evenings were pretty cold, so the cape totally saved me – it is surprisingly warm, and therefore a perfect trans-seasonal piece. I wore it with a black t-shirt, Pleat Please pants from Issey Miyake and trainers from Céline.
I took this image on Friday whilst we were celebrating my little brother’s 24th birthday at Holiday. What a perfect way to kick off the weekend, and I highly recommend their kale-champagne cocktail – so delicious! I wore a suede clutch from The Row throughout the weekend.
If you want to see more vibes from Flow, check out this little piece I wrote for STYLEBY. It covers the best fashion and hottest trends from the festival.
here’s a few trans-seasonal favourites of mine; as the long summer nights seem to be here to stay, I like the idea of mixing up the new fall arrivals with summer must-haves to create a great August look!
Ready for fall? Well, I am and don’t get me wrong because I don’t want this heatwave to end – I am summer babe after all. But I am one of those people who embrace constant change, especially when it comes to my wardrobe.
One of the key pieces I would love the invest in the fall is this puffer coat from Totême. I had some issues with the brand’s sizing due to my petite frame, but lets keep fingers crossed!
I am truly sorry for the absence here on the blog. There was a fire at my childhood home last week and my phone was stolen over the weekend. Even my iCloud back-up had disappeared, so just, please, back up your iPhone on your computer as soon you can. But now my life is starting to run smoothly again and I am ready for my 26th birthday tomorrow, just luckily no one got hurt. That is the main thing!
But how about getting back to the less heavy subjects like oh-so-dreamy and not-within-my-budget decor. I discovered Adrianna Shamaris, the New York based designer, the day I discovered The Line and she has been on my mind ever since. I might have written about her earlier as well, especially about the cracked resin cubes which ”have been cracked to achieve a unique quartz crystal effect” – they are on the top of ultimate decor wish list.
You can see some of my favourites by Adrianna above. I felt like featuring her again having read this interesting article on her the other day.
Byredo will launch an exclusive selection of horn combs which will be available on the 28th of June. I have soft spot for beautiful combs – I have been using Aerin Beauty’s travel comb for years – which is why this launch catches my attention.
I also like the fact that ”each shape is conceived as a tribute to powerful women in African history: Quaan Pharaoh Hatshepsut, the Legendary Queen of Sheba, Queen Mother Idia of Benin, the warrior Queen Aminatu of the Zazzau kingdom and the powerful Queen Nginga of Angola.”
Each comb is presented in a calfskin leather case and has been made of sustainably sourced zebu horn.
Of late I have been inspired by my favourite editorial from the 7th issue of Unconditional Magazine. The editorial stars Tasha Tilberg and it was styled by our Fashion Director and my ultimate fashion hero, Columbine Smille, and shot by Alexandra Nataf.
Tasha wears YSL, Céline, Ana Khouri and shoes from Maryam Nassir Zadeh in the images above. Hear, hear!
Wearing my new Céline earrings in the picture above. I had been eyeing this pair since last summer and, oh boy, I had tried them on so many times in Stockholm, London and counting! Luckily the sweetest Tina of Let Them Wear Shoes spotted them on Vestiaire Collective for me.
Here’s a few summer favourites of mine, including the ‘Noma’ blouse in grey, which I was able to pre-order. It comes in the most beautiful wool fabric, so it’s going to be part of my uniform this summer. Hear, hear!
A clutch I have been eyeing for a while. It is a white beauty from Céline and it would such a beautiful addition my collection of small clutch, which sort of seem to be my thing – most of my bags are clutches!
The requested interview series is back! I have had so much fun working on this project because I get to work with women who inspire me! Thank you, I am forever grateful.
Today you get to meet the sweetest and very humble Sophia Roe, a Stylist and Influencer, from the Danish capital. I love her natural look and ever-so-fresh style. Also, the longer I have been in the business, the more I have become interested in the inspiration which drives each individual – Sophia’s ROE DIARY should be one of your go-to destinations for chic inspiration and her personal style. Anyhow, as told by Sophia:
Could you tell me about my style?
I like to dress according to my mood and location, and I think my style is simple and easy-going. But who knows, see, one second I could be wearing a floral dress and the next day a white shirt and black blazer, so my style really depends on my mood and the location.

How does sustainability play a role in your wardrobe and lifestyle choices?
I love buying second hand! Though being a hundred percent sustainable is very difficult with my job title as I always need to show new clothes, but luckily a large number of fashion brands have begun to prioritise sustainability.
What are you going to buy next?
I just moved into a new apartment and a new sofa is on my wish – my boyfriend and I are currently eyeing the Mags Soft from HAY.
Which are your favourite beauty or skincare products?
I am a big fan of Glossier’s ‘Cloud Paint’ in Haze. It lasts forever and it’s an easy quick fix for a little bit of glow on the go. I don’t use a lot of makeup, so looking fresh without an effort is crucial to me.
I use Pure Control Moisturiser from the Danish beauty brand Tromborg on my skin and finish off with the Magic Moisture Mist from Omorovicza.
Morning bliss in Zanzibar, Tanzania, with no makeup.
How do you detox?
During a busy week I detox by going for a swim and laying by the canals here in Copenhagen. We’ve recently got built a lot of good swimming spots in the city. To be in the water is my kind of mental detox.
Where do you hang out in Copenhagen?
Lille Bakery is a newly opened place at Refshalvøen and my new favourite go-to spot!
The top pieces from my wish list, you are welcome. I really regret not having invested in the Laval cape before it sold out, though it will be available in grey in the fall. Cannot decide which colour to go for?!
Anyhow, I would love wear this trio with a relaxed trouser or denim from Khaite.
Do you already have STYLEBY’s issue #52? It is full of the best sartorial inspiration, of course, hehe.
In the issue I share my summer style along with the editorial team as seen below. What a pleasure! Were we all given a dreamy island destination in Europe and mine was Åland, so I chose a relaxed mix of essentials with some statement pieces of the season from Khaite, Céline, Matteau Swim etc.
Here’s a few of my favourite images from Iceland, one of my favourite and the most inspiring countries. I draw a lot of inspiration from nature and I tend to prefer scenic destinations, which is why I had been dreaming of traveling to this magical island for many years!
And in case you were wondering, I did not dress to impress: I wore a raincoat from Rains everyday and Céline sunglasses when the sun came out. Hence I suppose these images will do more justice to the time spent out there.
Driving towards the Westfjords of Iceland after a dip in the Blue Lagoon. I definitely thought that the pricey swim was totally worthy of every penny, though had I not been the driver, I would have stayed a bit longer just to drink more than one glass of red wine.
Seljalandfoss in the South of Iceland. This spot is pretty special because you can walk behind the waterfall and the drive to the spot is surrounded by snowcapped mountains.
A river somewhere near the Artic Ocean captured at 7am. The morning felt like driving through a Game of Thrones set.
The view from Duhórlaey where there’s the Arch with the Hole surrounded by majestic black sand beaches and snowcapped mountains. This is also where we spot a killer whale!
Skógafoss near Dyrhólaey which was one of my favourite spots. The walk up should totally be your a must-do list as the views only get even better.
The view from Gullfoss. I sort of have a thing for mountains and waterfalls… We spent the last night in these magical surroundings in a small cottage <3
