Rules to shop by when you hit the sales.

January is the first month of the year and also the month of finding a great bargain since every shop is having a sale to make room for new goods.

I often tell myself to avoid the sales because we often tend to buy things we do not need just because they are cheap. Well being a fashion addict and also a good bargain addict, of course I could not stay away! Who was I kidding anyways lol.

…. but i have set some ground rules for sale shopping.

1)Only buy things you were already interested in when they were full price.

This rule especially counts if you are in the highstreet shops. Because everything is sort of cheap anyways. Choose the pieces wisely. Do not waste your money on trendy pieces that you know you’ll only wear once or not at all. Get a classic winter coat or good knits that you can wear a lot until Spring arrives and during Spring over your flowy dresses. Maybe even during the next Fall/Winter season. Search for pieces that look expensive.

2) make sure you get the right size

We all know how it feels to find the designer shoes, you have been drooling over the past season, on the sale isle. You grab a hold on them and just know that you absolutely need them right!? no matter what it takes! and then you try them on and you know immidiately that the fit is not right at all but you still try again to see what if (what if my feet have become smaller within a few seconds)

fact is you will never ever use the shoes if they are too small and then they will just make you regret spending that money instead of saving them for a better deal.

3) Rather buy 1 piece than 10 you will probably never use

When I go sale shopping I always start in the more expensive departments to see if I can score a designer deal at a reduced price.This could be a good pair of jeans or an amazing knit or coat. I always go for the classic pieces that I can wear again and again. I will rather only buy one piece that I normally would not be able to afford due to the price than buy 10 things at a highstreet shop that I know I will only wear once and then never again.

So these are my 3 ground rules for sale shopping but it really goes for all shopping. Make sure the pieces fit you and your style and you will be good to go.

So what did I invest in this sale you may ask?

well I almost cut of a toe off to fit in a pair of Balenciaga pointy boots but I let them go lol

To be honest I have not really done that much sale shopping this time around, but I did score this offwhite teddy coat this weekend just hanging alone in the shop in my size. it is perfect for the rest of winter and I will definately be saving this coat for next year as well. I got 70% knocked off the price so it turned out to be a great bargain.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

https

Hi everyone,

I know I keep saying sorry for not posting here this often, but lately everything has been super hectic as December always is right!?

Therefore Instagram is the place i have been mostly because its super fast and easy to share content with you guys.

Anyway… This Christmas we have decided to do things a bit differently in my family. We do not have any children on this side of the family which made us think about how unimportant giving gifts really is? Should it even be this important? Especially as we live in a world where we all buy what we need when we need it? quite spoiled right?

We decided to go back to basics and forget about the gifts. Focus on being together and spending time with one another instead. As a bonus we do not have to stand in line in all the stores with the rest of Denmark lol.

How are you spending the holidays? at home with family? og maybe traveling somewhere?

I know I am looking forward to a lovely Christmas with my family and hubs – kick back and relax, watch cheesy Christmas movies and eating way to much amazing food and my Grandmothers Christmas cookies. What more do we really need? 🙂

Merry Christmas everyone!

Autumn feels and flowy dresses

 

It is getting darker by the second and Christmas ads are already blasting through the radio reminding us about whats comming.

I feel like summer was just yesterday and that we har hurrying through fall to get to the holidays.

Can we please just push the pause button for a second and fully enjoy the colourful autumn leaves, sitting outside cozying up in a warm blancket drinking hot chocolate and reading a good book. Wear my leather jacket with a cozy knit and not worry about being cold. Just for a little bit longer….

Okay okay…! I will admit that I love the holidays and I might have eaten… and bought some Christmas candy already.

But I am not ready for christmas carols and prensents and all that yet. in fact this year is a no gift holiday in my family. Instead we want to focus on spending time together and enjoy the holidays. All the stress of buying gifts are already gone and we can relax and enjoy each other instead.

Have you ever tried Christmas without gifts before?

Oh by the way! I discovered this brand called Religion Clothing and I am OBSESSED! They have the most gorgeaous flowy dresses and all black outfits which you all know I adore! 😉 The one I am wearing in these photos are a more colorful one though but with its asymmetric hem and chain colar it adds some edge to your style. Next time I am definately styling it with my favourite Leather jacket and a big whool scarf.

 

Well now I am all smiles since the weekend is just around the corner. For a change I don’t have any plans at all except family dinner tomorrow. It actually feels kind of nice not to have anything planned at all. can’t wait to just relax or do something spontanious – who knows 😉

Have a great weekend everyone!

Paris Dreaming

My heart has been very wanderlust lately and I have been dreaming about Paris ALOT.

Taking strolls by the Eiffel tower, eating macaroons and shopping at Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Celine without the ´.

Drinks at a cute bistro wearing my new Dior logo saddle bag that I just got at Dior. #daydreaming

If you have seen the episode of Gossip Girl where Blair and Serena are in Paris in their cutest outfits and expensive shoes – you know what I am talking about. Or the scene where Blair is running into the train station in her perfect red Oscar de la Renta dress!

Everything just seems more faboulous in Paris right?! The streets are cute and everyone seems to be so chic and well put together. It is such a great place to be creative because you get inspired everywhere you look.

Since I don’t have the time to travel I will just have to bring Paris to me. That is why I have styled this look with a classic berret with pearls.

To get the taste of Paris I will go get some Croissants and eat them while staring at Paris inspo pics on the gram lol. Now I only need someone to send me some Macaroons. Preferably with chocolate and pistacio. Those are my favs.

Any volunteers?

back to reality

 

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I have been a little mia here on the blog lately. I took some time off due to summer holidays.

As you may remember I was not sure if I was going to travel or stay in Denmark to enjoy summer at home.Well as you might have noticed on Instagram there are no palm tree or pool pics which means that I stayed home all summer. The weather here has been beyond what any of us Danes could have ever imagined.

We stayed home mainly due to the fact that hubs and I finally felt ready to adopt new fur babies. You might already have met them on my instastories lol – we adopted them from the local animal rescue shelter where we have been sometimes to donate money. They do an incredible job!

We ended up with two kittens because they were sisters. My heart could not bear to leave one behind when they have already been through so much together. Now they will always have eachother. I am so happy that we got them! They have surely helped me through some very tough times already.

Sadly my dear grandfarther past away during the holidays. This is such a huge loss for me and my family. He was such a caring man with the kindest heart. He could always make everyone smile. He used to sit in his chair humming christmas songs and I think I have inherited my sweet tooth from him as well. Especially my grandmothers christmas cookies are one of our common favourites.

Now I am back in the old routine of work, shooting pics for Insta and taking care of my little furbabies. They bring us so much joy already but boy they are active lol – I cant even do a shoefie or unboxing without them teasing me. The struggles are real!

Hope you all had an amazing summer! Fall is just around the corner – I am ready to take on the new season with a smile and looking forward to layered outfits again.

 

Lots of love…

Spontaneous Holiday feels

While everyone seems to be on summer holiday somewhere exotic with beautiful sandy beaches and drinks in hand I am still stuck at the office waiting very patiently for my turn to enjoy a feew weeks off.

I still have not made any plans what so ever and it actually feels kind of good. Now I have the chance to be spontanious and do whatever I want for 3 weeks straight! How awsome is that?! If I want I could jet off to Sounthern France or go on roadtrip through Europe and stop where ever my heart desires.

I live in a very small country but there are still so many places I have not been and I love exploring new places to go and to be honest: Denmark is really beautiful during summer. Especially now when the sun is out and we have not seen a single raindrop in weeks.

Right now the cornfields are blowing in the wind and the citys are quiet – it is the perfect time to explore all the hitten gems of our little country. Go to the little café I always walk past because it is to crouded and also hit the final sales in the small shops to find a good bargain.

What do you love about the summer holidays? and what are you up to this year?

Have you planned everything or are you spontaneous just like me?

Beach days in Denmark with Hunkemöller

Hi lovelies,

Beach days in Denmark is not something that happens a lot. There have been many summers with only one or two beach days if we are lucky!

The weather has come as a big surprise this year!

The sun had been out everyday during May and now as we are mid June we have had less rain than I can remember. Ever!

This means that us Danes are finally coming out and enjoying everything that we love about summer. Which means a lot of barbecuing, gardening and of corse hanging out at the beach or nearest pool.

The result of this is that for the longest time ever I actually got myself a new bikini! Yay!

I picked this colorful 2 piece from Hunkemöller because I finally got a bit of a tan without any traveling lol.

Also it is easy to mix and match with other bikinis that you might own already to give a more fun look.

This is actually my first Hunkemöller suit and I could not be happier with the fit. As a large chested mademoirselle it can be quite tricky to find a bikini top that makes ‘everything’ stay in its place and also giving you that perfect lift and that doesn’t make you worry about nip slips.

You can shop my bikini and many many other gorgeous suits here

 

 

Hunkemöller has a broad selection of bikinis and suits that fints every kind of body – slim to curvy. The best part is that the price is great as well so you don’t have to break the bank to look chic on the beach this summer.

On another note I have some very exciting news! This is something that I never dreamed would happen to me.

I have been nominated in the Hunkemöller blogger awards 2018!!! To say that I am exited is an understatement! I am so honored to be nominated!

What a great way to start the weekend right?!!

It would mean the world to me if you would go and vote for me via this link – you can add your vote from Monday June 18th.

Have you found the perfect beach wear for this summer?

Feeling the heat with NA-KD

 

Hi everyone,

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed my collaboration with NA-KD Fashion – they are running a big campaign in Denmark with #nakdlovesdenmark.

For this collaboration I chose some pieces from the NA-KD X Kristin Sundberg range. I find it so cool that NA-KD teams up with amazing bloggers and Instagram personas to create new pieces for their online shop.

The White ripped denim jacket is so cool and easy to wear. I love it because it is a bit different than the classic blue denim. I styled it with a classic white low back tee and a dusty green ruffle skirt and my beloved LV fannypack.

 

I hope you enjoyed the look and remeber you can get 20% off your entire order + free worldwide shipping by adding ‘britta20’ at checkout.

 

Happy shopping!

Coffee, roses and Isay

Hi Guys!

Happy almost weekend!

These past weeks have been crazy af! So happy that the weekend is fast approaching.

I am diffenately ready for some downtime with hubs, family dinners and lots of netflixing.

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I am impatiently waiting for spring!

It feels like we have been pushed back into January with all this snow falling again!

all of sudden it is not weird that people have not taken down their Christmas lights yet. The lights totally ads a certain amount of, what we Danes call hygge, on these cold snow days.

The upside to this weather is that it seems much lighter in the evening than it would be if it was just raining but still….

The few days that the temps hits above zero degrees I therefore must consider as Spring and wear all of my new Spring clothes and shoes.

I mean how much longer can a girl wait?! New clothes just hanging in your closet adding guilt to your conscience for not wearing them!

I know you must think that I am crazy but this is what my impatience does to me lol

Luckily my new spring wardrobe includes comfy new knits as well!

This white knit from Isay is no exception with its cute back lace up detail and low V in the front.

Also it helps me keep a bit warm during shoots and very easy to style.

Perfect with jeans like today for a more casual look or over your cute summer dresses in the hopefully near future!

It is such a versatile piece and I cannot wait to style it in different ways all during Spring.

Are you waiting impatiently for Spring as well?

Or how are you coping with the cold weather?

Check for life!

Lately everywhere I look I see check printed suits and blazers and I am OBSESSED!!

I have already purchased 2 pant suits and one skirt suit in a short time. and that is not the only checkered pieces in my closet!

Told you I was obsessed lol!

Check has become such a classic and a must have in every closet.

Today I want to share this skirt set from Global Funk which is checkered with a twist.

If you look closely you will see that yellow has been added to make a colorful contrast to the grey.

This is also what makes it different from the two other suits I have in my closet.

Are you convinced?

Because that is what I told hubs….. Do you think he fell for it?

Either way I loooove it! and will definately be wearing it a lot during spring as it is light and easy to style with different pieces from my wardrobe.

This time I styled it with a simple tee and Kicks combo which ads the perfect casual touch to any suit out there.

Are you as obsessed with Check as I am?
