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?

Checkered Coats

This season I have noticed that a lot of people myself included  are obsessed with checkered coats. It is different from the usual black and greys that seem to be the IT colors we wear all winter long.

Luckily for me and my wallet I already had this coat hanging in my closet. Lets just say that i have a thing for Burberry coats! Another obsession to add to the list 

It is vintage and has followed me for years now. It was one of those vintage bargains that was just love at first sight!

Do you ever vintageshop? If so what is your greatest bargain?

Sweater Weather

December has arrived and even though it ‘should’ be minus something degrees it is still not cold enough for long coats and boots.

A good alternative to winter coats is a great sweater! It can easily be added to any outfit to keep you warm and cozy during the day.

What I love about this paticular knit is the color. The green emerald is perfect for fall/winter and the upcoming holidays.

Also it has a high neck and the sideslits to show off what you wear or not wear underneath.

 I wore this outfit to the city for brunch and some christmas gift shopping.

This sweater is perfect for an all you can eat brunch buffet you can hide basically anything under it!  

Also christmas shopping is a workout in itself with all the walking and carrying bags of gifts! Oh! wait Hubs did that part!

Well you get the idea!? right?

Cozy Sequins

On my days off I love to go to the city and explore, have a hot cup of cocoa and shop a little.

My city is very small compaired to so many others but there is something cozy and familiar about. It feels like home.

What I love most is not the shops, because we do not have the most exiting ones – only the usual highstreetshops.

No what i love most is the buildings and little streets and soon the Christmas lights! there are many cute cafés and restaurants.

Here it is all about the Danish term called ‘hygge’ which almost always entails eating something with the people you love.

Google ‘Hygge’ and you will totally come visit Denmark! no joke

Prague getaway

It feels like October and November has just flown by! Dont know what happened?! have been sooo busy that I have neglected the blog!

Now it is time to get back in the game before this crazy year ends!

A few weeks ago I had the chance to fly to Prague for work and it was exactly what I needed!

Just to get away from everything even though it was for work to clear my head and get a fresh start.

Prague is such a beautiful city with cobblestones everywhere and every building is Instaworthy!

The view from my hotel says it all! Best sunsets!

The hotel was nothing special but to my surprice my room had the most amazing all marble bathroom! Instagoals!

Unfortunately I was only here for a few days and with work there was limited time for exploring but I managed to do a little damage aka shopping and making my sweet colleague take my ootd’s! I mean what are colleagues for if not helping eachother out?!

Irresistible Me

Hi Guys,

Fall has arrived here and with the falling leaves I decided to let my long locks fall as well.

To be honest I really did not have much choice in the matter.

My hardresser must not have been a big fan of my hair, since she decided to make such a huge mess of it, that led it to be so ruined, that there was only one option. CUT IT!

Luckily it ended up being longer than what I had imagined such a relief .

Now the shorter do has grown on me and I have found the pros of having shorter hair.

  • 20 minutes less blowdry time
  • when i curl or straighten it it does not take half a day
  • I dont wake up doring the night being choked in my hair
  • much less shampoo = more money for shoes!!

 These simple 3 facts make me love it!

The cons however is:

  • not having that long sleek ponytail or braid
  • not that many options when it comes to hairstyles
  • having to style it everyday instead of the easy bun/ponytail

Irresitible Me gave med the best of both world with their easy clip-in extensions that matches my own haircolor perfectly!

They are so easy to clip in and out and are so strong that you dont have to fear them falling out during the day. can you imagine?! All the feers and doubts that you get from other girls having extentions is nonexisting.

 I wear them a lot more than I had imagined I would. I have always had long hair so I never needed extensions before, but now they are such a lifesaver. Who knew that having long hair could be that important?!

Now I can have my long ponytail back whenever I want and still have the shorter do during the workweek.

The best of both worlds – what can be better than that?

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

Thank you for reading

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.

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

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.
