A successful day of drawing, eating hotdogs, admiring flowers, painting my nails and well enjoying the company of the people I love the most.
The past weekend I have spent up at the mountains. Living in Norway has somewhat made me immune to the beauty of our nature. The last days it all came back to me. I can definitely say that I enjoy and appreciate what nature has to offer. Blueberries, raspberries, fishing, hiking and beautiful mountainsides draped with astonishing waterfalls violently pushing thousands of liters into the river every day.
I should probably mention, as it might confuse, that what I am wearing in the first picture is hardly ideal for long fishing trips. Our serious fishing day was Saturday and I will assure you that I was covered in rain clothes as the pouring rain made us look more like drowning cats than anything else.
Out on a walk in my Isabel Marant sneakers. The background for this particular purchase was my need for a pair of comfortable walking shoes now that I am heading to London for uni. A somewhat sensible person might dismiss my arguments supporting the comfort of the shoes the minute they discover they have a built in wedge heel. The beauty, if one would ask me, is that the heel is unnoticeable which in my book equals awesome! But I guess it might not in your book, so in the lack of better words: Shut it.
Sooo, as you have probably understood - I caved. Which means that I bought the Isabel Marant dress. I figured it can double as a day as well as a boogie-all-night dress, or something of the sort anyway!

Out and about on a lovely Saturday. A second trip to a local shop, and I once again tried to convince myself that the flannel dress by Isabel Marant is perfect for Autumn. At this point the only thing of interest is to see how long I can fight it of. Before I again come to my senses - and cave.
I know I look more than a little uncomfortable on the Skateboard - and that is quite right. But how cool is it, really? Brilliant!
Denim shirt - Lee.Vintage shorts - One of a Kind (Notting Hill). T-shirt and socks - HM. Hat- Asos. Shoes- Converse. Jewelry - inherited from my mother and grand-mother.
I have found myself quite uninspired lately - the last weeks have reminded me of things of greater importance. Like spending time with the people I love, which this day resulted in a trip to the skating raps, where I quickly found myself being the only audience.
While life slowly returns to something close to normal, the roses spread across the city is a constant reminder that what used to be normal might never be normal again.
The pictures below are taken within the last two weeks. One thing stands out through all this, as I told my mother this afternoon, when we again visited the city church,
"I am so proud of, and lucky to be living in a country with so much love".
