style q&a

Describe your style in 5 words (or more!): Fun. Comfortable. Casual—ok maybe not casual in this dress! But I like dressing up in a casual way. If you see me, I’m always wearing dresses or skirts. So my five words? Fun, comfortable, casual, nothing more.

Favourite stores in Reykjavík: Of course Yeoman, but also Spúútnik and Fatamarkaðurinn. I don’t shop much in Reykjavík. I mainly shop abroad.

Favourite piece: It would have to be an old rabbit fur coat from my grandma. My grandpa gave it to her for their first wedding anniversary and she gave it to me. I love it. I would never buy real fur right now, but when it’s handed down, it’s very special.

Something I would never wear: Overalls. Especially denim ones. I used to wear them when I was like three so for me, they feel really childish.

Lusting after: I really want new sneakers. Some good crisp white ones. I’m looking, but I haven’t found anything I really love so I’ll just wait!
