My favourite outfit at the moment, and an update on my plans for the summer
//I’m sitting on my own at a table for two. Enjoying my own company to the fullest. The café I’m visiting has a roof-top window, and the sky above me is coloured baby blue with tiny dots of clouds, so perfectly round that they look like they’re painted on. I’m on vacation, and I’m loving it.
//Herman and I booked flight tickets home to Norway yesterday, and it’s really starting to hit me that summer is near. The lovely and horrible time of year where I finally get to see my family again, who I spend all year missing, but also the time of year where I hardly see Herman, who I’m used to being around every single day. The feeling in the pit of my stomach cannot be mistaken, I’m looking forward to it but dreading it at the same time.
What life will be like back home
//However, this summer will be a little different, and I can feel my excitement all the way down to my toes. If everything goes to plan, this summer might be when I finally get a real taste of independence. I moved to London to become just that; independent. But when you manage to fall in love just before moving day and end up in a relationship on the first day in the new city, well, then you kind of enter independence with training wheels on.
Secrets, secrets ?
//I don’t want to speak too soon, in case my plans fall apart and I end up in my hometown for the whole summer, those four never-ending months. If you remember what I wrote last year on my blog, you’ll know that I got pretty bored and lonely at home that summer. But this summer will be different in that way as well because now my friends that moved to Australia have come home again. My girl squad is reunited, my mom has moved into a new flat, and I’ve got a really exciting job. It can’t get better than that, right? (It could if only Herman comes to visit)

//With all this talk about summer, I thought it would be perfect to show you my new favourite outfit. Now that the weather has been so warm and lovely in London I’ve picked this outfit from the closet at least ten times. You know those fashion bloggers who show their outfit only once, and then they buy new clothes? Yeah, I’m not like that. In my life, the clothes I have really get used for what they’re worth. No one will hear me say “no, I can’t wear that because I’ve already worn that this week.” One week I wore this exact outfit three days in a row before I finally put it in the washing machine to rinse off the sunscreen and summer sweat. Honesty is the best policy.
