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?

A Touch of Pink

The Christmas traditions are en full sving and that means a lot of family gatherings with lots of food and sweets!

I already have all Christmas gifts ready for every family member – all i need now is a Chrismastree!

The city can be a bit chaotic in December I bet yours is as well , but what I love about it is the Christmas decorations and the big Christmastree in the town square.

Are you ready for Christmas yet?

When Christmas shopping it can be to hot to wear a long coat running in and out of the shops.

Therefore I often choose a sweater to keep me warm instead.

This time I styled it with a striped longer shirt and coated jeans. What I love about this sweater is the bows at the end of the sleeves that gives it that chic vibe we are all in need of.

Wearing: all Zara

(I know I know – but did not realize untill I had to tag the labels on Insta)

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

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

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.

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:

Processed with VSCO with s2 preset

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!

 

Thank you for reading.

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
