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?

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! ūüėČ

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

Thank you for reading

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 here) and 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.
