Flare jeans have been around for a long while. According to The Guardian, american sailors were the first to adopt bell-bottomed trousers in the 19th century. It is believed that this may have been for practical purposes. They made it easier to snag a man who had fallen overboard and easier to remove when wet.
To make it easier to find your perfect pair of jeans for your body shape, Zizzi expanded the palette of their jeans models and now there is a total of nine different models of jeans for your choice. High waist, curvy hips, regular legs, you pick. Each model has a name that also comes in the tag inside the jeans so you know the name of your favourite when getting yourself a new one. And I know you will, cause the fit is amazing. Here you can find ut more about each of the models & names.
While days get colder it is so easy to just go for black outfits. Maybe it is the cold, the darkness of the next upcoming months, sometimes it just feels very natural to go for a full black look. And practical too. For a girl from Rio, Oslo can be super ultra cold even in the milder fall/winter days.
To try to be more colorful as I have always been is my misson in this season. And my motivation to get my hands on this beautiful and warm sweater by Sandro Paris. The partern and color reminds me of a seventies style. Mucho me gusta.
I also wore it with a skirt but it feels a bit to voluminous to wear it under any bottom like a pencil or evasee skirt. So jeans it was.
Ok, now let’s talk jeans. Have I told you before I have never ever been a fan of jeans? It’s true. While living in Rio the jeans never made so much sense to me. I had trousers before of course but in colors. Now that I live in Scandinavia it just makes so much sense to wear jeans all the time. So practical. Now my friends, I understand the jeans lovers.
Also, it is very hard to find a good jeans in larger sizes. Nowadays there are many more options in plus size brands, but still most of the shopping in done online. Personally I find it a bit hard to by jeans online. So, here is the tip: you can’t get wrong with this one.
The jeans I am wearing in the pictures are from Zizzi. And they are the best for my body type. High waist, a lot of stretch, skinny fit. Perfect. And this is not an sponsored post.
About the boots? Yes I love them cause they are super comfy, not so high and still gives that long legs as heels do. Ther are super warm and cosy.

In this post I also share with you a good day I had here in Oslo.
First, one of my favorite art works I have seen this year – THE WHITE PAPER. It is installed in the Oslo Central Station and made by the artists Bjørn Hegardt and Theo Ågren.
Then we headed to the Påfluglen, an space in the middle of cool trendy Grunnerløkka. My friend Torstein stared it with the aim of promoting new artists, music, and a collective space for all kinds of creative projects. They are having an exhibition there now and in the pictures you see my favorites.
After we went to eat next to Påfuglen in a french bistrot. Me and hubby had a great day, thanks!
