Feeling the heat with NA-KD

 

Hi everyone,

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed my collaboration with NA-KD Fashion – they are running a big campaign in Denmark with #nakdlovesdenmark.

For this collaboration I chose some pieces from the NA-KD X Kristin Sundberg range. I find it so cool that NA-KD teams up with amazing bloggers and Instagram personas to create new pieces for their online shop.

The White ripped denim jacket is so cool and easy to wear. I love it because it is a bit different than the classic blue denim. I styled it with a classic white low back tee and a dusty green ruffle skirt and my beloved LV fannypack.

 

I hope you enjoyed the look and remeber you can get 20% off your entire order + free worldwide shipping by adding ‘britta20’ at checkout.

 

Happy shopping!

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?

Coffee, roses and Isay

Hi Guys!

Happy almost weekend!

These past weeks have been crazy af! So happy that the weekend is fast approaching.

I am diffenately ready for some downtime with hubs, family dinners and lots of netflixing.

If you follow me on Instagram you know that I am impatiently waiting for spring!

It feels like we have been pushed back into January with all this snow falling again!

all of sudden it is not weird that people have not taken down their Christmas lights yet. The lights totally ads a certain amount of, what we Danes call hygge, on these cold snow days.

The upside to this weather is that it seems much lighter in the evening than it would be if it was just raining but still….

The few days that the temps hits above zero degrees I therefore must consider as Spring and wear all of my new Spring clothes and shoes.

I mean how much longer can a girl wait?! New clothes just hanging in your closet adding guilt to your conscience for not wearing them!

I know you must think that I am crazy but this is what my impatience does to me lol

Luckily my new spring wardrobe includes comfy new knits as well!

This white knit from Isay is no exception with its cute back lace up detail and low V in the front.

Also it helps me keep a bit warm during shoots and very easy to style.

Perfect with jeans like today for a more casual look or over your cute summer dresses in the hopefully near future!

It is such a versatile piece and I cannot wait to style it in different ways all during Spring.

Are you waiting impatiently for Spring as well?

Or how are you coping with the cold weather?

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?

Shades of grey

The first month of 2018 has past and we are slowly beginning to get lighter days.

My mind is already in spring mode, but I have to wait a little while longer before I get to storage my winter coats.

Therefore I am sharing this classic grey one that I got a few years back and it is still one of my favourites! It has a classic menswear cut and keeps me warm all during winter.

I love the fact that I can reuse items from previous seasons – that is why I always splurge a bit more on classic pieces because I know it will last season after season.

This time I styled it with other shades of grey and black accessories.

Do you splurge on classic pieces too?

I feel like it gives more bang for your buck.

Thank you for reading.

2018 Resolutions

We are already halfway through January and I am finally feeling like myself again.

After spending all my time in bed with phnemoia all during the holidays it has been a rough start of  the new year.

I have not made any new years resolutions as I always find myself quitting before I even start because I feel like it is a task!

Instead I have decided that, instead of starting a crazy diet or set some goals that are unachivable, I will do small things to make my everyday a little easier.

1. Quit obsessing about what people think

I find myself stressing about what people think! especially when it comes to blogging and Instagram –

do people like my outfits? do they even care enough to read this post? am I good enough for this business? the questions are endless!

This obsession with the thoughts of other people has to stop in 2018 because it only adds to ones insecurities.

2. Quit being surrounded by negative people

Negative and narrow minded people only only gives you guess what?! Negative energy!

Life is to short to be surrounded by negative people when all they do is bring you down.

Try and find a way to spend less time with them.

Or if you find that those people are important to you try if you can talk to them about it.

Maybe they are unaware of the fact or they are having some trouble with something themselves.

if they don’t care than maybe it will be easier to seperate yourself from them.

3. clean out the clutter

I love cleaning out other peoples closets – it is so easy when it is not your own stuff haha

this year I want to clean out all the pieces that I do not wear and have not worn in a while.

I am selling the good stuff of course and then donating the rest to charity.

this goes for the rest of the house as well.

Have you made any resolutions this year? And are you good at sticking to them? or do you quit them quickly?

Winter colors

 

During winter it seems like everyone tends to wear the same colors as the weather aka the darkest colors possible!

As much as I love a good monochrome outfit and all black looks it can be quite dull during these darker months.

It is time for a change and I decided to go with the more colorful choice of coat for my last visit in Copenhagen,

Oddly enough everyone was able to spot me in a croud full of black coats haha

To tone the coat down I styled it with a pleated leather skirt, neutral chunky knit and black accessories.

Him & Daniel Wellington

Today I am hanging out with my two favourite men!

Hubs and Daniel Wellington that is!

It should always be a big priority to spend time with loved ones.

Even during the busiest time in your life be sure to make time!

I keep up with time with my new Classic Petite Ashfield in all black – another classic addition to Daniel Wellingtons already gorgeous collection.

I normally wear a more mens size watch, but this petite makes it easier to stack my favourite bangles as well.

….

On another note….

Don’t get me wrong hubs and I love each other to the moon and back but we are probably the most stubborn couple on this planet!

Just agreeing on these pics was.. well lets just say not easy haha

I went for the ‘oh we are so in love’ kind of picture and he of course went for the goofy one!

As a compromise we decided to add both pics in this post!

Now it is up to you guys to decide which one gets posted on Instagram later this month

please wote for your favourite in a comment 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?
