Teal dress with pink scarf

This dress has been  featured in a few posts before, but never with a pink scarf. Yes, the same pink scarf as in the previous posts! I do think these colours look so great together that I just couldn't resist.



Pattern mixing like a true blogger!







































The photos were taken at 4 pm, and it was all dark outside, hence the artificial lighting. It wasn't too cold outside, so I wore a short jacket on top of the dress, that I like a lot, but seldom wear because of the weather up here in Scandinavia.



Dark purple with teal and pink







































Since it's the dark season I decided a little more colour was in order, so I added my yellow bangles, and turquoise rings. Red lipstick seemed to be the only choice then.



Aren't yellow bangles on everybody's essentials list?



























Before I end this post I'd like to share the latest development in the H&M boycott story. The governments in both Norway and Denmark have summoned H&M to meetings, asking for an explanation. We're still waiting to hear the answer.



Remembering a rear view for once!







































We are having the family visiting on Sunday, and have all sorts of preparations tomorrow. I'll try to remember taking a few pictures, and give you an explanation!

Have a lovely weekend and see you soon!

I like the way the pattern in the scarf mirrors the pattern in the dress. I love seeing people work their favorite accessories frequently into their outfits.

dear tine,
it is obviously a good idea to add colors in the dark season. you look so cute and agleam. i love the oriental pattern of your dress and of course the pink scarf too.
enjoy your weekend!

pastcaring said...

The dress is a lovely colour and print, and I do agree that your pink scarf seems to add a little kick of colour to any outfit!
Love the little jacket (I know all about the trials and tribulations go finding a jacket which fits...) so I hope you get to wear it more.
Gorgeous bright accessories, just right! xxx

So lovely, Tine! What a happy accessories story, and I like the sounds of your particular "must-have" list. I'm glad you are wearing the great pink scarf to your heart's content. Again, I would not have noticed the repetition (nor thought anything of it if I had), as it does indeed work so well with so much!

How amazing that the governments are challenging a corporation to accountability! It seems so rare anymore! I look forward to further updates.

Dark purple with teal and pink. I'm in love! I can always count on you for color and repetition is good. There are so many ways to repeat a stunning pink scarf.

Very interesting about the H&M boycotts. I'm anxious to hear how it's going to play out.

I love that scarf with this dress. They are both equally rich and so they look like they were made to go together.

You're sure getting a lot of use out of those awesome boots. Send them my way when you're done!

I love the pop of pink in this outfit.
yes, I want to know it all about the boycott.
Enjoy the weekend and your visit.

Teal and pink, why not! I think they mix well together as well as the patterns do. When you tell me about darkness so early, I consider to stay in California until March-April! I wish you a great family event, I am soon heading out for some jeans hunting!

Melanie said...

I love your remedy for cold weather - colour and more colour! You are lovely in this. I hope the rest of your weekend is fun and relaxing.

Hello Tine --

Thank you for the H&M updates (I've been reading along quietly, and really if not for you would have been oblivious to the issue).

As a "repeater" myself I know the joy a favorite accessory can bring. I'm sure the shot of pink is a great addition to the late fall landscape!

I think my favorite pink scarf pairing so far is the one with your deep blue dress, but you did tilt the odds by pairing lots of green accessories with that outfit -- lovely.

There's no such thing as a dark season with you around!! You shine with color and loveliness. I like the pattern mixing and of course I love the bracelets!!

Hope your family is well. Has your daughter baked any more delicious creations?

I love the pattern in the dress, reminds me of my own grey chevron beauty. :) Heh I didnt even know the government in Norway had summoned HM to a meeting. ;) Yea I do know there is a world out there :p hehehehehe ( missus cant see longer than her own nose) hehehe Its not that bad actually. :)

Ah Dark Season in Scandinavia - i heard about it -dark too here but not like you guys - can be depressing i suppose -
Anyhoo love the dress and scarf, pretty colors on you

The dark season, sounds ominous. Like as long as winter, 3-4 months? Your pink scarf looks perfect with your teal dress, in both color and print. Per-fect!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you so much Lynne! Don't worry - I'll be remixing the scarf again soon!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you very much Sabine! When the sky is a heavy dark grey outside, it's depressing to see more grey inside. I think that's why so many Christmas decorations are red. We need lots of colour in the dark season.

kaffesoester said...

Thank you so much Curtise! I was afraid I was suffering from some sort of "pink-blindness" believing it looks good with anything! Now I know I'm right, I have complete faith in your judgement!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you very much Amber! Hopefully something will come out of this H&M business - the workers will get a fair pay, and more governments will hold the big companies accountable for their actions. I've given up expecting the companies to do it on their own initiative!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you so much Judith! For five dark months per year I'm without colour outside. I think that's why I love wearing colour so much, especially stronger colours. I'm in colour deficit!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you very much Joni! I'll keep you posted on the development with H&M, as soon as I hear anything.

When I'm done with the boots there won't be much more than the shoe laces left -and that day isn't too far away. They are falling apart on the inside!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you so much Sacramento! I'm keeping a very close eye on the H&M case, eagerly awaiting any news. I promise to pass it on!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you very much Anna! I think I'll join you over there! I need jeans, I need higher temperatures, and I definitely need sunshine!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you so much Melanie! When there's not a leaf left on the trees, let alone flowers in the garden, there's only colourful outfits left to brighten a dark winter up! The weekend was great although not particularly relaxing.

kaffesoester said...

Thank you very much Vix! I've been thinking about that blue dress, not sure exactly what colours to wear it with - perhaps a strong purple, or maybe lighter blue and rust? In any case I'm missing just the right accessories. Early Christmas presents?

kaffesoester said...

Thank you very much Jean, you're so sweet! My family and I had a great time Sunday when we had an early birthday celebration of both my mother, my daughter and myself. Our birthdays are all within 12 days in November!

Since my family lives quite far from here, it's impossible to have three birthday parties so closely. And this way I can save on the calories too! My daughter made the same dessert again,and it was a huge success!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you so much Monica! Don't worry - I'll keep you posted on all major events in Norway! I always watch the late news to keep myself updated, and I don't mind sharing!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you very much Ariane! The H&M business started around Oct. 28th. I think it's only a Scandinavian case so far. We can only hope that other governments will join in and demand some accountability of these huge, powerful companies!

A lot of people up here actually get depressed during winter, and have medical treatment as well as treatment with light from special daylight bulbs.

kaffesoester said...

Thank you so much Pao! Yes, 4 months of too little daylight. And the higher up to the North you go the worse it gets. It's so depressing as I mentioned in my reply to Ariane, that people get real depressions from it, and need treatment. I'm not that affected by it, just tired of it already!
