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

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 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!

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

Barbara’s Choice

Today I want to introduce to you a Danish label called Barbara’s choice.

My Mother in law actually introduced me to this brand, when giving me this beautiful blushpink coat. Some of you may remember this coat from my Instagram posts?

Well anyway this Danish company is know for their practical, well designed and oh so comfy coats. After wearing the pink coat a number of times through Spring I was certain that this was a match made in heaven.

With the changing weather we have in Denmark I always need to bring a light jacket everywhere as I never know what the climate will bring me through the day.

This short grey bomber jacket is perfect for any outfit. It is easy to dress up for a night out or a more casual look.

Today I have styled it with my favourite ripped jeans and heels for a casual chic look.

How do you style you bomber jacket? Please comment below.

Thank you for reading.

LBD

The little Black dress (LBD) is a wardrope stable. Every girl simply needs one in her closet.

When ever I am in a ootd crisis, which happens a lot more often than you might think, I am often rescued by one of my little black numbers.

It can easily be transformed from day to night with a change of accessories.

Like this lace dress I wore to my nieces 9th birthday this weekend. Through the day It was styled with ballerinas for a more casual look and later the ballerinas were exchanged for a pair of heels to transform the look for an evening out.

Do you have a favourite LBD?

May Struggles

Through the colder months all I pray for is warmer weather, sun and blooming flowers. Now May has come and everything I wished for has arrived.. well almost anyway.

May has left me clueless about what to wear, when I leave the house in the morning.

One day it is sunny and warm and I decide to wear a flowy summerdress and suede sandals, only to find myself regretting it in the afternoon, when it starts raining cats and dogs! We all know the struggles of rain vs. suede!

Then the next day learning from previous mistake I decided to wear my usual workwear thinking I have everything under control- it becomes the hotest day of the month!

My solution is: Wear a light top underneath your blazer and then you are good to go. I also added a pop of pink to add a little spring to my usual workwear.

 

What do you think makes a good workoutfit? One that can be transformed into a lighter/warmer look when needed?
