End of Summer

 

I cannot believe that summer is almost over! Time flies by so fast!

After 3 weeks of nonstop eating, sleeping in, exploring and doing housework cause thats what being a houseowner does to you– it feels strange to get back into the old routines. and at the same time it feels so natural, that after a couple of hours, at the office, it does not even feel like I have been away.

If you follow me on Instagram you might have noticed that my Instastories are filled with naturevideos and pics. Denmark is so beautiful during summer that i had to share it with you!

It is such a small country and yet there are always new things to explore.

Like this old bridge where these pictures where taken. It had been in hiding for 85 years! Now it has been restored and made into a turist attraction.

For a day of exploring I decided to wear a layered outfit due to the changing weather. I still wanted a summerish look but had to add a trench to keep warm.

I like my classics and immediately went for my denimshorts that I have practicly been living in all summer due to their comfy style. Then added a lace top and my fav shoes of the month.

I  have visited a lot of the beautiful attractions Denmark has to offer this summer and I am not nearly done! I have many more on my ‘need to explore’ list.

Do you also like to explore your own country and its attractions?

I am already dreaming about my next roadtrip adventure.

Thank you so much for reading.

Le chic

After a summer where all I have done is work and no play, it is almost my turn to enjoy the last month of summer.

3 weeks of relaxing is almost here!

3 weeks of relaxing, sleeping in and eating brunch

not to mention all the family gatherings comming up in August

I cannot wait to spend all day in the sun pretty please Denmark  and wear my new sparklies. Such a sucker for anything sparkly.

I swear if I had enough sequins in my closet I would wear it everyday.

Hubs says I am obsessed! He might be right but lets not tell him ok?

Having a tendency to go for the classic pieces oops I did it again  has always been my thing.

These whitegold pieces are no different.

Classic pieces with some sparkles to make a rainy day a little brighter

Oldtown

If you Google Odense -Wikipedia will tell you that this was the city Hans Christian Andersen was born, about the old houses, churches and museeums.

It is also the town where I grew up.

Although I lived a few miles outside the citycentre this was still the place we went to shop, eat, go to the movies and so on.

I could go on and on about what this city i  known for, but I would rather show you some of the hidden treasures, the old part of the city, one of the cutest boutiques and my new favourite spot to have coffee and treats.

Pinoc - Vestergade 82

Pinoc has existed for a few years and is such a cute shop. They carry most of the Danish designers like Day Birger et Mikkelsen and By Malene Birger, but you can also find jewelry, phonecases, bags and if you love interior design this place has the best items.

After a little shopping I like to stop at a café to have lunch or just a little treat in the afternoon.Actually I read recently that the people that live in Odense love to eat out so there are a lot of new restaurants and cafés popping up. whenever a retailstore closes. I guess we like to eat more than to shop?! how did that happen?!

One of the places that I love to visit is Brød – they have the custes little café with coffee and all the Danish treats you can think of.

After a little treat I like to walk through the old cobbled streets away from all the highstreet shops and crowds. This area of the city has a lot of old buildings, shops and galleries.

Like the old shop called Kramboden where I used to go with my grandmother and siblings every vacation to buy candy and look at the old fashioned toys. You can buy everything from old tin, kitchen equipment to toys and candy here.

The houses are the cutest leaning buildings and are very hard to get a hold of. They are often past on from one generation to another.

If you are ever in Denmark this is a special area to visit and also if you want to see where Hans Christian Andersen grew up this is just in the neighbourhood.

One might think that I saved these photos from the early Spring or Fall, but no. These pictures were taken in the midle of July where I should have been wearing shorts and light dresses!

I took this look from day to night by changing my shoes. During the day i wore heels at the office, but decided to wear these kicks instead for, a casual dinner with the family.

I know normally it would have been the other way around but hey thats just me. Such a rebel lol.

Casual Officewear

image

A new week has arrived and I thought I would share some of my work outfits with you.

When you think about working in an office most people think that it is all about suits and ties, but in Denmark we are bit more casual.

At my office there is no dresscode. Therefore there are a lot of options of what to wear. In the morning this can either be very good og very very timeconsuming.

Sometimes I wish that we should all wear suits because of the time i would save getting dressed in the morning And other times I feel blessed that I get to wear jeans whenever I feel like it.

I have mixed feelings about this issue as you might have figured out.

The cullottes trend has been around for a while now. Even though there still seem to be mixed oppinions about this trend I must admit that they are very comfy.

I found these Karen Millen Denim cullottes on sale during spring (shop similar hereand paired them with a classic white shirt.

To make the look a bit more fun than just denim and white I added my new loafers (shop here) ,my go to work bag from Prada and gold Klarf watch (shop here).

What do you wear to work? please comment below.

 

Thank you for reading.

Cloud free skies

image

This year instead of traveling to palmtrees and white sandy beaches I choose to stay home and explore the beautiful sightings in Denmark. Hopefully this fall weather we are experiencing will turn into sun and cloud free skies by the time my vacation starts.

With everything that is happening in the world right now it would be wrong to complain about the weather we are having, the oppertunities we did not take or the life we are living.

It is time that we start living everyday to the fullest. Appreciate what we have and the people in our lives.

We ourselves are resposible for the life we choose to live. If you are not happy about something in your life change it. You are the only one who can do it.

 

Do what makes you happy. All day everyday.

DIY Denim

Hi Guys,

I bet all of you have a pair of jeans in your closet, that you never use, but just cannot get rid of for some reason.

I have a lot of jeans that are simply too long, because of my very short legs no I am not an elf! I cannot find a pair of jeans that matches my hight, so I always have to shorten the lenght.

But as those of you with the same issues as me know, that most of the time I simply dont get it done! Laziness for sure! Instead I wear the same jeans untill they fall apart.

Back to the point: the pile of jeans in my closet i do not wear!

I got inspired by all you creative ladies out there I used to be one as well to redesign some of my old denims.

This is the first project: the assymmetric hem drumrole please!

You start out with a pair of old jeans and a pair of scissors.

Try on your jeans to get a feel of where the cut should be. If needed mark the spot with a piece of chalk.

Take your scissors and cut of the hem (or more if you are short like me) to make the new hem reach your ancles.

Make sure you do not cut of to much fabric! Once you have made the cut you can never go back.

Next you find out where you want the cutout to be. fx. on the side or like I did on the front.

Fold your jeans and cut out a square that fits with the look you want.

When you have made sure the cutout is exactly like you want it -put your jeans in the washer and dryer to get the perfect freyed look.

Voila the result of my DIY denim:

Hope you like them. I am already on my next project!

Please comment if you have any tips on a different denim DIY! I would love to do more.

 

Thank you for reading.

I woke up like this

‘I woke up like this’ has become a phrase known all over the world since Beyoncé released her hit flawless a few years back.

Queen Bey reminded us to believe in ourselves. To be happy with the body nature gave us and not to take any bs from anybody.

I know I am little late posting about this sweatshirt, but I think it still makes a good statement.

Stay flawless ladies!

The Beautiful Ones

Love is something we all need to exist in this (sometimes cruel and dark) world we live in.

Especially when you feel like nothing is going your way , when you lose something or someone, you never thought you would have to live without, when you are so heartbroken you think the day will never come where you actually feel happiness again

In these times loved ones are needed, to make sure, you get back on your feet and continue to be your fabulous self.

The beautiful ones that we often take for granted and never make enough time for.

I am blessed to have a very suppotive husband and a large family who are always there for me, when I need them. I will start to appreciate that more!

From today onwards I will make sure to spend as much time with these people (because you never know when the last time will be… ) and stop waisting precious time on things and people that do not add anything possitive to my life.

Today is the end of all things negative and the beginning of everything possitive.

RIP skattebasse (my little stalker)

Love you always
