There is nothing as beautiful as a healthy and glowing complexion, and the look of a sunkissed skin even has the power to make summer last for longer. Chanel’s Les Beiges All-in-One Healthy Glow Fluid complements the skintone and leaves you with a glowing and natural looking complexion all the while it hydrates, softens and protects your skin. As I’m pregnant I try to stick to organic skincare and make-up only but I must admit that this has become my guilty pleasure. The colour is a few tones darker than what I would normally wear as a foundation so instead I’m using it as a bronzer on tired days. A small amount on my cheekbones, forehead, chin and nose instantly makes me feel (and look) better.
Apply it with your fingertips where needed or invest in a kabuki-brush if you wish for a more even result. I love the brush by Chanel, which is perfect to bring in your bag when on-the-go.
The last outfit, but not the last post from Venice. Trust me, I’m saving the best for last…
As you can see from the shoot I did with Monica Vinader I’m really into culottes at the moment. I got these ones from Asos (in both black and navy) and have been living in them ever since. Not exactly the best quality but it’s super hard finding a pair of culottes that has an elasticated waistband, which I for good reasons will need until the baby is due. However, I’m strongly thinking about adding this Day Birger et Mikkelsen pair to my collection since I have a feeling that my love for culottes is much more than just a brief affair.
And then there’s the Louis Vuitton bag… I wish I could tell you that it belongs to me, but truth is, its only a loaner. Remember the first shoot I did with Louis Vuitton last summer? That was when I first got my eyes up for the world of the SC bag. It’s such a versatile piece – perfect for daily use – and the taupe color with neon trimmings will take any outfit to a whole new level.
I’ve got my eyes on this stunning Bruuns Bazaar coat to keep me warm during the winter. Some pieces are simply so perfect.

It goes without saying that I prefer my jewelry to be simple yet with an attention to details. Delicate but noticeable. Subtle but not to miss. This is what makes Monica Vinader a favorite of mine when it comes to jewelry – and I’m happy to be featured (and to represent West London) in the new Jewel Co-ordinates Campaign alongside four other London-based bloggers.
Some of you may have noticed the gold and black bracelet I’ve been sporting in my latest outfit-posts – and the pictures don’t lie. I’ve been wearing it more or less non-stop since I got it a few weeks back. What I haven’t told (or shown) you is the discreet engraving at the toggle with me and my husband’s initials. Two letters that quickly turned the bracelet into one of my most precious pieces of jewelry. M for Marie, D for David.
Speaking of cropped tops, the floral printed one from today’s outfit post wasn’t the only one that moved into my closet recently. So did this nude and black lace top – also from By Malene Birger.
Undoubtedly the prettiest sandals in my closet, which sadly will have to stay in their box until we reach slightly colder temperatures. Why? Because swollen feet is a not so sexy side-effect of being heavily pregnant in the summertime. We all remember the painful images of Kim Kardashian’s feet during her pregnancy, don’t we…
I’ve got the bag (and the dress), now all I need is a party to bring this little black and gold evening bag to.
