London I love you!

Those of you who have been following me for a while know about my eternal love for London.

I used to visit twice a year but this time I had to wait a little longer than usual. I guess life got in the way.

But now I am back and even though it is only for a few days I will make the most of it!

Not only is this a getaway for me and my husband, but also planning a little get together with a couple of other Instagram bloggers who I have been talking to and admiring since the beginning of this entire Instagram journey.

You might know the faboulous and sweet Ashley from @miss_gunner who I talk to on a daily basis and who I like to call my friend.

We have chattet a lot during the years and some of you may remember that we first met in Amsterdam a few years ago.

This time when we met I was so lucky to meet Camilla from @ave.camilla as well! Her bubbly personality is so contagious that you cannot be anything but happy when you are around her.  And do not even get me started on her natural beauty! How can anyone be so gorgeous is beyond… 

We had brunch at the cutest cafe on Portobello road with our husbands! It was so fun to meet the girls and also the other talented men behind the camera. I bet they had a lot to talk about as well.

The trip was not all about blogging, but also about exploring what I like to call my second home.

We always visit the British Museum. The building in itself is so beautiful with the glass ceilings and marble floors.

Also Covent Garden is a must everytime! I love the atmosphere and of course the cute cafes and shops.

Ofcourse I am dreaming of living in Notting Hill with the crisp white houses or the gorgeous pink house next to Portobello road!

This city holds so many great memories for me and I feel so inspired everytime I visit.

It was the first big city I ever visited both with and without my parents. We have family close to the city so when I was younger we used to visit a lot.

Also it is the place where my husband proposed! Yup right in the middle of Kensington gardens on a sunny January day he popped the big question!

And the rest is history!

Do you have a favourite city in the world other than your home?

Heels vs. Flats?

I used to be an all heels girl! I would wear heels all day everyday!

and no we are talking about kitten heels.

We are talking about 10-12cm stilletto heels!

When I look back I might understand the looks and comments I got from people but I did not care.

Over the years I have learned that flats and even sneakers can be stylish as well.

No you may not get the same posture as when you wear stillettos but they sure are more comfortable!

Especially when the shoes are the custest blush color and a bow is added! I mean what is not to love about them 🙂

These sneakers from Bullboxer I will be wearing all spring and summer with cute dresses and jeans.

They are so easy to style and perfect for any occation. whether it is drinks at the local café or exploring on your next adventure.

Or just like me on my way to the next family gathering wearing a printet dress and a chunky cardigan.

Thank you fra reading 🙂

Ruffle obsession

This spring one of the biggest trends is definately ruffles! They are everywhere! and I looooove them! 🙂

So when Hunkøn asked me to shoot some of their pieces I was not doubting for one second which pieces to photograph!

I visited their lovely studio last time I was in Copenhagen and it is placed the custest little area behind the main shopping street.

The studio itself was a gorgeous Copenhagen apartment with high ceilings and old wooden floors and filled with clothes everywhere aka every insta bloggers dream!

So have you purchased you ruffle piece this spring? otherwise I have linked some great ideas for you below!

Thank you for reading!

The Classic Trench

I know we should be talking about spring clothes and sandals, but when Spring feels more like Autumn it is hard to make the transistion.

Therefore when I was packing for Copenhagen it was quite a challenge since the weather was changing so much!

The first day here it rained a lot and therefore I decided to wear my very beloved Burberry trenchcoat. It is such a classic piece that you can wear all year around.

I remember the day I bought it like yesterday. That feeling when I finally had saved just the right amount for this classic. Nothing feels better than finally being able to buy something you worked hard for.

Black was the only option for me since I wanted to make sure that I would wear it season after season.

The questions I always ask myself when investing in a more expensive piece of clothing: “how much will I wear this piece?” ,  “Can I wear it with most of my existing wardrobe?”

This is not to make myself more sure of whether or not I love the product. It is to show myself that spending this big amount on one piece of clothing is okay.

When you shop designer pieces do you consider it as much as I do? or are you more spontanious?

Thank you for reading! 🙂

Trenchcoat: Burberry

Spring?! Is that you?

Yesterday the thermometer showed 19 degrees!! That is only a few degrees from Summer here in Denmark!

of course I had to spend most of the day inside of the office, but when I got off work all I could think about was leaving and enjoy every moment of this sunny day! I stopped by the local supermarket and bought ice cream for hubs and I to enjoy while sitting outside!

I have waited for these lighter days in what feels like forever and finally they seem to have arrived!

Goodbye winter coats and warm boots and hello brighter colors, cherry blossoms and long summer evenings!

Cheers to this sunny weekend! I hope you are enjoying every moment!

Thank you for reading!

Goodbye winter coats part 2

One would think that because you are a blogger / instagramer, it is crucial to spend as much as possible on the latest clothes, shoes and accessories that the fashion world dictates.

As much as i love following the latest trends I am more of a classic shopper.

I love to look for classics – pieces I can wear with most of my wardrobe that are timeless.

This does not immediately mean that I never wear colors. I just pick them wisely.

Like my very colourful Falabella from Stella Mccartney. I Love the chunky chains and the soft suede. I could have chosen the safe one black or grey,  but I decided that coral would be perfect for Spring and Summer. And in this case also through winter.

 You might have noticed, if you follow me on Instagram, just how much I wear this coat!

I have worn it almost everyday this winter! This I might come to regret, when I go through my phone for a new post, and all I am wearing is this coat 90% of the time!

But that just shows my point!

You do not need to buy everything on the rack! Buy the items that you feel suits your style and you know can be worn with everything season after season.

A special thanks to my husband for always supporting me even though he teases me about all the outfit changes – but i guess thats what husbands do! 😉

Goodbye winter coats part 1

 

Now that spring is around the corner and temperatures are rising I am as always waaaay behind on sharing my winter outfits! So please bare with me if a lot of winter outfits are shared this month.

As you probably know by now I have a thing for vintage coats and when I found this one hanging in a shop I knew it had to come home with me.

It is the perfect grey classic color that will last season after season and it will keep you warm on cold winter days like this one.

To be honest it was way to big at the time so I had to make some changes to the coat.

Luckily I am no stranger to a needle and thread so it came quite easy to me. Do you like DIY projects just as much as I do?.. I feel like a good DIY can make an old piece new again just by a simple change!

When wearing a statement coat like this I tend to add some more neutral pieces to dress it down.

This time I styled it with a chunky knit and block heeled ankle boots.

How do you style your statement coats?

Wearing:

Coat: Vintage faux fur

Knit, Jeans & boots: Zara

Scarf: H&M

Bag: Chanel WOC

Necklaces: Julbox (designed by yours truly)

Sunny Copenhagen?

When ever I get the chance I love to visit our sunny captital! I love everything about this city! The streets filled with beautiful architecture, the shops and the cutest cafes on every corner.

I love how different it is from where I live now – so busy and upbeat!

There is always an event, a big designer sale or a cute new boutique to visit!

This time I went mostly for the blog to connect and view all the new spring / summer collections comming, but of corse I made time to explore the city with hubs. 

When I visit Copenhagen i always have to stop by Illum – or marble heaven as i like to call it! You can see why in the pictures. Also I have a weakness for the roof top terrase. 

Not only for the view, but also for the food and the best macarons in the country!

If i ever had the oppertunity i would move there in a heartbeat! Well at least thats what i tell myself i would, but then the fear strikes of everything you would be leaving behind and all the responsibilities you have where you are? 

Have you ever just packed up your life and moved somewhere new and exiting?

Military Jacket

I say this all the time! Choose your winter coats wisely!

If you you do not have an unlimited budget like Kim K – choosing the right coat is crutial!

Think classics and something you can reuse season after season.

Like this military jacket from Tommy Hilfiger

It is like 6 years old! but I use it every year.

I try to always plan ahead to be sure what coat to splurge on.

Also regularly cleaning out my closet helps in the decision making process.

Getting rid of pieces you never use or are ruined from last year needs to be tossed.

Another plus is you might earn a buck or two if you decide to sell old pieces.

What coat have you plurged on this year? or are you reusing an oldie like me?

Coat: Tommy Hilfiger

Belt: Gucci

Jeans: Piezak
