I love mustard

This might not come as a surprise to you if you’ve read any of my blogposts this autumn, but I love mustard. Mustard and ochre is well presented in my wardrobe this autumn. It started last autumn really when I bought a pair of mustard jeans and a long mustard cardigan. In February I bought a home knitted traditional sweater in cream and ochre. I had tons of compliments when wearing this for the first time, so I thought that maybe I was into something color wise. Here’s my mustard/ochre items all in one post.

Jeans- Floyd from last year, Scarf and Blazer – Massimo Dutti  a few years old, boots – Russell & Bromley also a few years old

My first mustard piece of clothing, I really don’t think I had anything in mustard ever before this pair of jeans from Floyd.


Cardigan – Floyd, last year, Scarf – Becksondergaard, a few years old, Dress – Designers Remix, this year Bag – Campomaggi, few years old


My second mustard yellow item also from last fall and from Floyd. I mostly buy Floyd at the Freequent shop in Galleriet. I really like the service there.

Sweater – Home knitted Fanakofte, Dress – Moves Minimum, from last year, Scarf – Rosenvinge, last year

In February I bought this Fanakofte as this traditional sweater is called. It was such luck I found it in a buy and sell group in Facebook. It took me half a second from i saw until I contacted the woman who knitted it. Sometimes you just fall in love. She knitted it for her daughter, but it was to small for her, lucky for me. I absolutely love this sweater and it will probably be in my wardrobe for decades.



I packed the jeans and cardigan away for the spring/summer, but my Fanakofte was often in use all spring and summer. It’s the kind of garment you can just throw over just about anything if it’s a bit chilly.


This fall I fell in love again first time I saw a picture of this sweater from the Danish brand Masai. It’s cotton with a small percentage of wool and polyester. Very comfortable. It will keep well,  I have had many clothes from this brand before and have always been very satisfied with the quality and the fit. Especially if you are Plus size this is a really good brand, they really know how to make clothes that looks good even if you are overweight. I always felt very comfortable in my Masai clothes when I had 30 ponds more on my body.


These are my mustard/ochre items, I’m knitting a scarf and a hat for the winter season and I have a lighter scarf in the color too.


I’ve also ordered a dress from the Norwegian brand Secrets by B, I will receive it next week. I’m really exited about the dress and do hope it fits me. It has my name all over it, literally,  as it’s called Kari. 8C0A6190lite-650x650

This dress can go either way, it can be absolutely a disaster on me, or it can be fabolous, I’m of course hoping for the last.

So this is the mustard/ochre items in my wardrobe. I only wear them one at the time, they are the spice in my wardrobe this fall. The color is so versatile, it goes with black, brown, navy, olive and most neutral colors.

I’ve chosen to write only in English today. Writing a blog is very time consuming and writing in two languages even more time consuming. If you’re a Norwegian reading my blogg and don’t understand much English please let me know and I’ll take the time to write in Norwegian too.


Until next time

Bad hair day

Well at least it’s sunshine today, but it is quite cold wind and felt temperature is 8 degrees C (47 F). It was a bit warmer earlier today when me and my photographer had a photo shoot. This time my theme was a patterned dress and how to wear it year around. I have to say I felt most comfortable in the autumn/winter outfits today, wearing sleeveless and sandals were a bit cold to be honest.  

Ah well those photos are for later blogposts, today I’ll show you some outfits with my taupe jeans. The day we took these photos wasn’t a the warmest either, so they don’t exactly scream summer.

Jeans – Floyd (new), blazer- Zay (old), top – Masau (old), boots – Rieker (old), bag – Fjällreven, watch – Michael Kors
 I det minste er det nå sol i dag, men brrr det er bitende kald vind så følt temperatur er bare 8 grader. Helt normal sommer i Bergen altså. I dag harvi hatt en fotoseanse igjen, denne gang med en mønstret kjole som hovedperson. Jeg har stylet den for alle fire årstider og må si i dag var det mest komforabelt å vise høst og vinter alternativene. Sommerversjonen med bare armer og sandaler var en kald opplevelse.
Men nok om det, de innleggene kommer senere, i dag skal jeg vise noen antrekk med mine taupe jeans. Det var ikke akkurat sommertemperaturer den dagen  vi tok disse bildene heller som dere kanskje ser. 

 Not quite sure what happened this day, I think it was kind of an off day, bad hair day, bad make up day, feeling fat day and Kari the photographer complained about the light. We were not at all happy with the result, but here’s a few pics from this day anyway.

 Det ble liksom ikke helt den store schwungen over bildende dagen. Enkelte dager har man rett og slett bare en bad hair day på alle måter og Kari fotografen var ikke helt fornøyd med lyset heller. Livet er ikke alltid perfekt så her er noen bilder fra den dagen uansett. 

Jeans – Floyd (new), scarf -Rosenvinge (PM ), sweater – Second Female (new)
The location was great thoug. 

Ikke noe å si på omgivelsene

Shirt – Day Birger & Mikkelsen (new), denim jacket – Linnea (really old), scarf – no idea which brand it’s really old too.

At least it looks like summer

Now I hope that todays photoshoot went a bit better than this one, I think it did, but haven’t seen the photos yet. 
Nå krysser jeg fingre og håper at dagens fotoseanse gikk bedre enn denne, jeg tror det, men har ikke sett bildene ennå. 
Stay tuned. 
Until next time

The striped dress – Take 5 the beige cardigan

I guess you’re all fed up now my striped dress, but this is my last post about it for a while. This time I combined it with my favourite cardigan and one of my favourite scarfs. The cardigan is from the Danish brand Masai and is made of linen, cotton and viscose. So comfortable and timeless. It has the perfect length and can be used with most of my dresses. I have a similar one in a shorter version.

 Dere begynner vel å bli passe lei nå av den stripete kjolen, men nå er det siste innlegg om den på en stund. Denne gang har jeg kombinert den med min favoritt cardigan fra det Danske merket Masai. Den er utrolig komfortabel i en blanding av lin, bomull og viskose. Den er helt perfekt til å slenge over de fleste av kjolene mine. Jeg har også en i samme kvalitet i kort versjon.

 Dress – Lindex, sunglasses – Lindex, hat – Accsessories, scarf – Barfota, shoes- Ecco
All but the dress and sunglasses are a few years old.
 These pics were taken on one of the very few days with sunshine so far in June. Cross my fingers and hope July will bring us some summer.

 Bildene med den stripete kjolen ble tatt på en av de veldig få solskinnsdagene vi har hatt i juni. Nå får vi krysse fingre og håpe at juli bringer litt sommerlige temperaturer med seg.

 Some old pallets make the perfect bench.

 I do love my coral shoes.

 En par gamle værbitte paller er den perfekte benk.

Det kan nesten ikke bli mer sommerfølelse enn dette, kjole, stråhatt og tygge på et strå.
This is the picture of my summer feeling this day, sundress, straw hat chewing on a straw.
Until next time
