Jungle Boogie

Leather jacket: Zara (old) | Dress: Zara | Boots: Mango (old)

While leopard print always comes back as a wardrobe stable, it's very refreshing to see zebra print make its return. There's something so '80s-chic about zebra print and as you might be aware of, I'm obsessed with the '80s. I have been having a hardcore high street fashion detox since the beginning of the 2018 (which is also why I have been so freaking bad at blogging this year; I don't have any clothes to blog about). However, I'm currently in desperate need of summer clothes so when I found this Zebra dress in the summer sale at Zara, I knew I had to bring it home with me. I've paired it with my beloved Céline sunglasses, a black biker jacket, a pair of fishnet tights, and a pair of heeled patent boots.

Where I Find Interior Inspiration

In a couple of days I'll be moving into a dorm room. While I'm terrified of moving away from my mom's house, I'm exited about getting to decorate and furnish a new space. Because of this, I've been frantically looking at my four favorite sources for interior inspiration, and I thought I would share them with you in a blog post today.

#1. CHRISTIANE SPANGSBERG

Christiane is such a talented, young artist who uses her Instagram account to showcase her art work. Her drawings are beautiful and simple. They remind me of  a mix between Picasso and Matisse. All her pieces tell a story like the commissioned collection that Christiane did for Paddington Inn in Australia which is about how strangers meet. Besides sharing her gorgeous art work, Christiane also shares costumer pictures (which are always of beautifully styled homes) as well as images of her own cute, little Østerbro-located apartment in Copenhagen. 

#2. CHRISTIE TYLER

Christie will forever and always be my muse and go-to woman for photo inspiration. Besides being an amazing fashion blogger, Christie really has an eye for interior design. I'm not exaggerating when I tell you that her room is one of the most dreamy rooms, I've seen on the Internet. Her entire room is following a warm neutral palette with gold undertones. I'm most definitely going to get myself the Hans Wegner Y-Chair (which is also a great investment piece) as well as a midcentury nightstand like hers. As a Dane, I grew up seeing that specific chair everywhere and midcentury styled furniture in teak tree. It reminds me a lot of my grandma and grandpa's house. My heart is also set on Christie's rose gold clothing rack, her marble tray, and ivory faux cowskin hide.

#3. MEGAN ELLABY

Megan Ellaby is another one of my favorite fashion bloggers. Although, Megan doesn't really like minimalistic, Scandinavian interior design or plain white walls, I still manage to find her home on of the most beautiful ones on the market (I also spotted some Danish midcentury teak furniture in her house, hehehe). Megan's home is very influenced by her love for music as well as the '60s and '70s. The house really oozes of personality and I appreciate bravery in styling which Megan totally has!

#4. LIZZY HADFIELD

I haven't been following Lizzy for as long as I have been following Christie and Megan. However, in the short amount of time that I have been following Lizzy, I have fallen head over heels in love with her apartment. Her dining room/seating area with that insane apotheker's dressoir is probably my favorite part of her home. She had me desperately googling after one similar to hers (failed :'(... ) when I first saw it. Furthermore, I'm also totally loving the vintage Moroccan Beni Ouarain rug on the gorgeous herringbone floor. I'm imagining decorating my future adult apartment like Lizzy's.

I hope you enjoyed this slightly different style of blog post. Let me know if you'd like to see more interior related blogposts or if you'd like for me to continue sharing my different sources of inspiration!

Checked Blazer & Joy Division Tee


Blazer: Vintage | T-shirt: Vintage Velouria | Jeans: Zara (old) | Boots: Mango (old)

I bought this Joy Division t-shirt in a store called Vintage Velouria last month when I went to Oslo. I love Joy Division and I wanted to celebrate them by wearing this t-shirt. I'm currently in the middle of an exam period and this is the outfit I wore yesterday. I only get dressed as I feel more productive when I'm writing instead of just sitting in my PJs all day. While I was waiting on my coffee to brew, I asked my mom to help me shoot a few photos of my little outfit. I know it's very simple but unfortunately, it won't get much better than that until after I'm done with my last exam.

Where to Find Bond-Babe-Esque Prom Dresses #Ad

My one regret from my own prom, back in 2014, is that I never really cared a lot about what dress I was going to wear. I ended up ordering a dress from The Reformation (a brand that I absolutely LOVE) but unfortunately, it didn't fit me right and I felt terrible in my prom dress throughout prom dinner. When I eventually decided that I needed to go home to change clothes, I fell asleep on my bed which was covered in all the alternative dresses I had pulled out of my closet and was deciding between. To this day, I still blame my prom dress for the fact that missed out on prom night, so I would know how important it is to have the right dress for you.

If I could do it all over again, I would want a prom dress just like the one Barbara Bach wore in her role as Anya Amasova in The Spy Who Loved Me. When the lovely Annie, from The Celebrity Dresses, contacted me to write a blog post about their site, I instantly remembered how badly I wanted to have a prom dress like the one Barbara Bach wore in The Spy Who Loved Me.

The Celebrity Dresses specializes in recreating red carpet looks and dresses worn by actresses from all our favorite movies. They have been featured by major publishers such as Teen Vogue, Seventeen Magazine, and InStyle. They carry a large selection of celebrity dresses from IT-girls like Bella and Gigi Hadid. However, the ones that really caught my eye were the dresses worn by other oldschool muses such as Marilyn Monroe, Rita Hayworth, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor, and Grace Kelly.

All dresses on their site are custom made and very affordable. They're tailored by your measurements and you have the option to customize the dress from scratch, if that's what you want to do. The Barbara Bach dress is now on sale for $159.99 (used to be $389.99) which most of their prom dresses are. In addition to the favorable price point, they also offer free world wide shipping on all items.

You can find the Barbara Bach dress right here or you can go find your favorite dress right here!

Steady on, Cowboy!

The western trend is one of those trends that always comes back around. What popularized the trend this time around was the collection Raf Simons designed for Calvin Klein FW17. Designers have since then latched on and shown western inspired pieces for SS18 and FW18. Since then, I've desperately been browsing through vintage shop after vintage shop for the perfect pair of cowboy boots and a western shirt to match. With no luck, I settled on this little number from Monki. It's neither vintager nor a pair of boots, but I found it to be a quite charming piece regardless.

What do you think of the western trend?
