noora sætre style steal | skam

I’m about 500 years behind on the SKAM hype, but I did finally get around to watching it a week or so ago (after my roommate forced me, but don’t get me wrong – I’m glad she did). I’ve been planning on making a style steal post for a while, because I personally love taking inspiration from different characters, and even though I’ve got a few other characters up my sleeve who I’d like to do a style steal on as well, starting off with Noora feels like a good choice.

I adore Noora’s style, it’s very simple and practical (and actually something I can wear in the cold!) as well as sophisticated. She has a few staple pieces that make for classy outfits, and can be paired in so many different ways – meaning you don’t need 15 different shirts and 10 pairs of jeans to recreate her look – and then there’s the iconic red lipstick, which is basically the only make up she wears.

In this post I’ve put together 3 different outfits, all of which I’ve actually worn before as I actually owned a lot of these items beforehand – in a way my style had been developing in the direction of Noora’s before I even watched SKAM and got massively inspired by her. As I said earlier, as SKAM takes part in Norway, the outfits are very well tailored for colder weather, meaning if you’re from a country where we actually get proper winters, these can be easily layered and still look super cute. I know this is something I’ve struggled with when I see “winter outfits” in TV shows and just know if I wore anything like that here in Finland I’d freeze my tits off.

outfit 1

Processed with VSCO with e6 preset

white shirt – from New Yorker, brand is amisu 

jeans – new look

bralette – h&m

belt – thrifted

lipstick – max factor, color is the marilyn collection sunset red

For this first outfit I’ve drawn inspiration from an outfit I think we see in either episode 1 or 2 in the second season.. it’s a scene where she’s making food and it turns out Eskild has eaten her pasta. A Noora staple is the collared button-up shirt, this one has some cut out detailing on the upper arm which I really like. I would wear this tucked in to the cropped ripped mom jeans, and wear the belt as a little extra detail. We most often see Noora wearing brown belts, but I personally prefer black ones (and this is also the only belt I own). Noora strikes me as a bralette girl, we definitely see her wearing a lacy bra at some point I think – and I just personally love bralettes and basically wear them every day instead of a bra. Then of course, minimal make up and a classic red lip and you’re good to go!

outfit 2


striped shirt – bikbok (this one is actually called “noora”)

jeans – dr denim

lacy bra – h&m

lip stain – isadora lip desire in 64 true red

One of the most iconic looks Noora wears is the striped button-up shirt, we see it in the scene where William is texting her in the common room trying to convince her through Vilde to go to a party or something? I really should have searched up the specific episodes.. Anyway, I would pair this with a pair of basic black high-waisted skinny jeans. Even though that is a pair of pants we never see Noora wear, I don’t think it’s a shot too far to pair the top with them. You could also add a belt to this outfit if you wanted to. Underneath I would wear a blush-coloured soft lacy bra, as it definitely feels like  something Noora would wear (plus it’s super comfortable) – and once again the red lip makes an appearance. I love this lip stain as it really is the perfect classic red colour.

outfit 3

Processed with VSCO with e6 preset

white chunky sweater – bikbok

same striped shirt – bikbok

mom jeans – bikbok

belt – thrifted

bralette – h&m

Okay so I just realised that this entire outfit is basically from bikbok, what can I say, I love that store, it really is one of my absolute favourite clothing stores. And I believe it’s Scandinavian as well? Update: googled it and it’s Norwegian – how perfect is that! Anyway, here I have an example of that layering I talked about earlier – using the same shirt from the previous outfit you can layer it with a chunky sweater and pair that with some mom jeans. I would tuck in the sweater at the front a bit, roll up the jeans to make them a bit cropped just because I prefer that look and wear the same bralette for comfort and belt for accessorising. Layering clothes is a serious winter survival tip here in the north and I personally think it’s a very cute look.

I would pair all of these outfits with some basic black booties, the pair I like to wear has a super low heel so they’re still comfortable for every day wear.

Hopefully you got some inspiration from these outfits, like I already said I wear all of these and will probably wear outfit 2 for my lecture tomorrow, which reminds me – I have to get back to reading Frankenstein now as I’m only about 80 pages in and I need to have it read by tomorrow! I hope you liked these, for my next style steal I’m thinking of doing Veronica Lodge from Riverdale because her style is amazing.

happy (late) halloween

This week has been an absolute mess, I’ve been drowning in uni work and studying for an exam, but it’s finally all over. A week ago I went to a halloween party (so very sorry I’m just now getting the pictures up) and me and my boyfriend dressed as Bonnie & Clyde. This was very much my idea.


Now, I love halloween. Yes, I’m one of those people who prefer halloween over christmas. Fight me. I’m kidding. This was my first time attempting wounds with liquid latex as well and I have to say I’m quite pleased!



Fun fact: one of my all time favourite movies is “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, I remember watching it when I was really young and it’s just stuck with me ever since! I’m kind of obsessed with everything slightly creepy, the first time I ever watched Edward Scissorhands I must’ve been about 4 or 5.

I really want to try to post more often on here, it just seems there’s too much to do and not enough hours in the day sometimes. Having a personal photographer to take outfit pictures of me would be great to, I’m finding it difficult to find time to take actual proper lookbook pictures. Feels so good to write, whenever I’m just rambling on like this I remember why I chose to study literature in the first place, writing just means the world to me.

Right now it’s Friday night, I’ve been stressing about exams legitimately all week, so I’m just going to enjoy a night in with me, myself & I – I’m binge-watching “New Girl” so life’s pretty great. I’m thinking about doing an October favourites post, I’ve got quite a few things I’ve really been liking this month that I’d like to share with people.


I’m really sorry about the crappy iPhone pictures, I really want to invest in a good camera at some point so that I can take better outfit pictures. I’ve also managed to crack the lens on my iPhone camera so even though the iPhone usually has a pretty good camera mine now sucks.

Tomorrow we’re doing a ‘crib crawl’ with some of my classmates, and I’m really hoping it’ll involve a fair amount of wine as I fucking love wine. Also I totally bombed my lit exam today, even though I spent all week studying. Yikes. My roommates been gone all week BUT I’ve remembered to feed her pet fish so I’m very proud of myself for that. Such a responsible adult. I kind of feel like going thrift shopping tomorrow, I really want and old vintage sweater that I can crop (this is totally inspired by Lua Perez she’s my queen).

ALSO I just found out about this amazing band called Movements, go check them out if you’re into alternative/indie stuff like me! I’m listening to their song “Full Circle” right now and it’s just sooo good.

#ootd: fishnets and converse

At this exact moment I’m sat in a lecture about intercultural communication, what a perfect time to make a blog post, right?

My morning lecture got cancelled today which means I actually had the time to get ready for uni!! Go me!!

Decided to wear a dress (!!) while it’s still warm enough to.

dress – forever 21

fishnets – h&m

shoes – converse

I paired this with a light wash denim jacket from h&m that I was too lazy to put on in the picture.

recent buys: h&m + new yorker

I’m really loving life in a bigger city, being born a small town gal never meant that I was gonna stay one for the rest of my life. One of the perks of living in a big city are all the shopping opportunities – I’m used to only having one clothing store to go to. So, I’ve picked up a few things that I figured I’d show you now.


I got this crocheted mesh top from h&m and I’m so in love. I’ve been looking for a top like this for ages and I finally found one!


The other thing I got from h&m was this Iron Maiden top. Now, I know a lot of people have some strong opinions about stores like h&m or forever 21 carrying band t-shirts, and I definitely understand why. Even though wearing band tees often is a fashion statement as well as a way of showing your love for the band, these stores carrying the tees makes the bands a brand. A lot of people wear the shirts without even knowing the band, which, even though it isn’t a crime is really disappointing when you see someone rocking a tee of a band you like and go up to talk to them about it, only for them to have no idea it even is a band. Personally however, I love the band tees these stores carry as they are more fashion forward than the traditional band tees you would usually buy (and I actually listen to the bands!).


Okay, moving on to new yorker, one of my new favourite stores as it is so affordable #brokeuniversitystudent. I have this top in light grey already and as it is only 3€ I decided to get one in this army green colour as well.


If you know me, you know I love everything cropped, and that includes hoodies. Another item I’d been looking forever for – a tie-up hoodie. It’s super comfy and slouchy and I adore the colour! Plus, as it’s from new yorker it was super cheap as well. Seriously, my top tip to all broke uni students: if you have a new yorker near you – go there. The clothes are super cute and, as I’ve said a thousand times – so fucking affordable. I don’t know how widespread it is though, it’s a German company and we have it here in Finland.


The final thing I got was this backpack. These seem to be all the rage recently and I tried to fight buying one, I really did, but they’re just so convenient.. also this one is cute as fuck and a lot more purple than what the picture shows.

DIY: cropped levi’s top

Wow, hello blog world. I know, I know, it’s been a while. I started university on Monday and fresher’s has been insane so far! I’ve barely had time to sleep on account of several events, all of which have included alcohol.

Do you ever just get bored of an old t-shirt and kind of feel like you want to spruce it up?

Something I always do and something that is so so simple – I crop them. This gives the item a more flattering look and seriously transforms it! Personally I like to add some rips and holes because I like the look of it.

Here’s the finished product! I chose to cut and rip the hem as I cropped it to not have such a clean cut at the bottom. I created the small rips by pulling at the fabric with scissors – don’t cut actual holes. Instead, drag the scissors across the fabric for a worn down, distressed look.

And finally – how it looks on. I’m super pleased with the result and this literally took me 5 minutes.

how I style band tees

For this first outfit I paired a men’s band tee with a jean skirt, to give the outfit a casual feminine feel.



joy division tee – had it for years, can’t remember where it’s from

skirt – ltb

shoes – adidas stan smith

For this next outfit I went in a completely different direction. Pairing a Nirvana baseball tee with Nikes for a more sporty and chilled out look.


And, as I’m wearing a baseball tee a baseball cap just felt fitting.



nirvana baseball tee – had it for years, it’s a men’s size small and I’ve cropped it myself

baseball cap – new era

shorts – dr denim, I’ve added the rose patch(from new yorker) myself

shoes – nike air max

For my last outfit I decided to go a bit ‘grungy glam’ I guess you could call it. Ripped jeans, an oversized tee and chunky heels is what it took to create this look.




sunglasses – pieces

kurt cobain tee – stay

jeans – new look

heels – h&m

GRWM: night out


makeup & sparkling wine (drank from a white wine glass I’m a rebel)


For tonight’s look I decided to do a golden bronze-y smokey eye, paired with winged liner of course. I created the look using Maybelline’s The Nudes as well as Urban Decay’s Naked Smoky. 


Before I did my hair but after I had some delicious pizza (pizza is life).



And then I actually did my hair, go me! I just curled it using a hair straightener, I love creating these messy beachy waves.


And finally the whole outfit (minus shoes, I decided to just wear my Nike Air Max, because they’re comfy as fuck). We’re going out to celebrate my last weekend in my old hometown, next week I’m moving into my first own apartment and starting university! I’m really excited to start this new chapter of my life!

top – stay (got it in carlings)

jeans – dr denim

shoes – blush/pink nike air max
