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?

is it okay to take a break?

Hi everyone!

I know it has been a while since my last post but real life got in the way. (also you might already have seen this look on Instagram lol)

It can be a real struggle to joggle between real life and my social media world – especially when it is not my full time job!

I love creating content and being a part of an amazing community of fellow bloggers and content creators. I am so grateful for all the people I have come to know and talk to everyday and the ones I have actually met in real life and I like to call my friends.

They are all very inspirational and strong women who motivate me everyday and this is exactly what I love most about social media! Getting to know people with the same interests as mine.  Building relationships with people I would never have met or maybe even heard of, if it was not for social media. For that I feel extremely lucky and fortunate.

Prioritizing is key to succeeding in both worlds though. It can be such a challenge for both myself and my loved ones because all of my spare time is used on social media to grow my blog and Instagram. it is like a full time job – but a job I love so much that I am not always willing to take breaks from it.

Also if I do take a break once in while and don’t interact I feel that Instagram is punishing me with lots of unfollows. Even though the number of followers should not count as important it still is to some extend. Especially if  you want your hobby to become your day job.

Furthermore when you get asked why you dropped to a certain number and you explain it with : ‘…well I took a week off and then they were gone..’ – doesn’t sound very boss like to me?!

…and then the insecurities set in… am I not good enough? not thin enough? not beautiful enough? not stylish enough? – the insecurities that noone should feel but everyone does at some point. The questions are so draining. All that negative energy for nothing but likes from people you don’t even know? Is it worth the stress?

To be honest with you I do not think that I can succeed in both worlds without letting someone or myself down. This is very stressfull to deal with. Especially with all the missconceptions and the lack of understanding, from your surroundings who find bloggers and social influencers superficial and fake.

Everyone have a right to their own oppinion but like my parents always said to me growing up: ‘if you have nothing nice to say then don’t say anything at all’.

As all fellow bloggers can agree to it is a very competitive world we are in and every blogs and Instagram stars appear – what was so secluded and unigue in the beginning is now a flood of amazing content from amazing bloggers.

This have made people more desperate to succeed overnight and an epedimic of the socalled fake influencers popped out everywhere. We have all noticed them and luckily brands are now becomming aware of them also.

It takes a lot of effort to keep creating new and inspirational content. People tend to forget that bloggers work on their own (well most do) – they do the styling, writing, creative vision, take photos, edit and the list goes on.

Do you know any other job makes you change into many different outfits in the car, cafe restrooms and on the street?! ( yes you read that correctly lol) – it is not always very glamorous behind the scenes.

Yes we do like cute outfits and we might stand on chairs to get the perfect food/ coffee shot but we do it for the gram and because we love beautiful content. People are so judgemental about things they know nothing about which is pretty sad… we should encorage each other more instead of putting each other down.It is important not to take ourselves to seriously and do what we love!

Being rich on Instagram is the same as being rich in Monopoly? Been hearing this term a lot lately.. Do you agree? also how do you deal with the ups and downs of social media?

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?

Spring dreaming…

February is here!!

I have started counting down the days till spring witch means less layering and bare legs.. well hopefully..

but for now layering is still a must since the weather changes from snow to rain to sun in a heartbeat around here.

Since I have been dreaming about spring in what feels like forever now I have added some softer tones into my wardrobe.

This look I kept in greys and nudes with a touch of white and blue.

The classic striped shirt is light and perfect for sunny spring days.

The collar is a bit different and makes it a bit more feminine compared to the classic shirt collar.

I styled it with a simple skirt and a classic trench and added a warm blouse to stand the cold.

Are you making your wardrobe ready for spring?

January Layers

Hi Guys,

Happy almost weekend!

January is super dark and cold around here so layering up is key to keeping warm!

(I am wearing double socks in these kicks lol)

The hours with light are so few that one only hopes for spring or a paradise island with palmtrees, sand and a cold drink lol

Luckily the days are getting longer and before we know it spring and blossoms will be in the air again.

therefore we have to enjoy our winter wardropes for a little while longer.

I love wearing scarfs all year around as it keeps me warm and it also keeps away a soar throught.

I litterally wear a woolen scarf every day during fall and winter – I think I have the same amount of scarves as I have shoes……. Not counting either ones anytime soon though…

And even though I have started cleaning out my closet for spring clothes, I am not getting rid of those scarves.

Denmark is always a little behind on the warmer temps so having scarves at hand is a must around here.

Do you have an accessory that you can not live without like I do?

Let me know by commenting below.

Goodbye Miss Chique & Stylish?…

Hi Guys,

Sorry I have not been active on the blog lately.

To be honest after summer vacation and getting back to work everything has been kind of overwhelming.

Also coming to the realization that blogging will only be a hobby right now. Well at least for me.

I even considered closing misschiqueandstylish. com altoghether and maybe rebranding my Instagram to make it… well different somehow.

But after talking about the pros and cons of it I decided to let it be.. for now at least.

The reason I created misschiqueandstylish.com was to have a creative outlet and reminding people that no matter your budget you can always have class and style.

You do not need all the latest trends and all the newest designer items to be chic. All you need is your creativity and think about what you spend your money on.

I did not name my blog this because I felt I was her : Miss Chique & Stylish – but because I wanted everyone to feel like her when they walked through the door in the morning.

Also to show girls that you don’t need to be a size zero to be a blogger!

This issue is often the first thing people comment on when they find out that I blog! .. they look at me odd and say “but you are not the skinniest”.. you probably all know the looks that comes with it..the ‘oh you think you know better’ look!

and no I am not and I am not trying to be!

I am just showing you and the world my daily looks because I love fashion and styling.

All of my fellow bloggers all know the struggle.  The huge competition especially on Instgram.

The fact that many are buying followers and brands dont seem to give a f…! They work with these so called influencers anyways.

The fact that the amount of followers still seem to mater more than the content you create.

I could go on and on about this matter but…. well I dont want to rant…..

So here is what I am going to do.

My plan for the rest of the year…

Keep posting my outfits – well because I loooove fashion and thats why i started this in the first place.

Furthermore and most importantly, I keep going,because I love the little community that I have become a part of and the lovely people I have met because of blogging!

Hopefully meeting up with some fellow bloggers soon and create new great content.

And maybe in the future I will consider rebranding again.

What keeps you motivated in this business?

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 🙂

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!
