So… for about two months ago, I went to Milan for the first time.
A lot of things have changed since then, especially since this exact day these pictures were taken actually.
And I’m gonna write a big life update very soon, so stay tuned for that, but…
The pictures were shot by freelance photographer Frank which is a friend of Melissa and Philip, so go show him some love on his Instagram right here! Because he’s awesome!
I was wearing H&M dress, vintage cold jewelry, boots by Public Desire, and my Gucci bag.
For more details about Melissa’s outfit go check her blog right here.
It’s been a while since the last time I checked in here on the blog…
But If you are following me on Instagram you have probably already noticed that I had my first little adventure to Milan for about a month ago.
I was visiting Milan at the time because of my girl Melissa was already staying in the city to visit her boyfriend Philip, so I thought now that I had the opportunity to go live with them and have them show me around, why not take a little trip to Milan and see my girl that I had missed so much.
But, as you may already also have noticed (if you are following me on Instagram) I went to Milan again only a few weeks after..but I think we are saving that story for later.
But since it’s been so long since I was there the first time, I think I’m just gonna give you guys my quick thoughts about some of the things I’ve seen while I was there.
Milan is no doubt one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever been to.
The architecture is just stunning, Milan is… from what I have seen (which is actually not a lot yet) a charming old city with a lot of big beautiful buildings which has some crazy detailing going on, but that’s also what makes this city seem so majestic in many ways.
Especially on photos…I mean if you first capture the light hitting the buildings just right, then you’ll really see all of its details… I don’t know something magical just happens at that moment… and you really get the impression of the history behind the buildings.
Milan fashion feels
For most people, Milan is known as a fashion city were many huge brands in the fashion industry was born and raised.
You can feel that too while walking in the streets of Milan, I think people here are very much aware of what they wanna wear…or at least what high-end designer brand they wanna wear and what trends they may be following the upcoming seasons.
But I must be honest and say that so far I haven’t really seen anyone here yet who have blown my mind when it comes to style, which I’m actually a little disappointed about because I was expecting to get mind blown.
For me, It just seems like high-end designer brands, especially designer shoes is the way to go here … so if you’re wearing a very boring outfit but your shoes are from Balenciaga there will be no problem… you’ll be accepted as a fashionista here.
But only because of the shoes of course.
I’m just joking I’m sure it’s just me who haven’t ran into a real Milan fashionista yet.
If it’s real art, it can speak for itself.
The people and the food
Well as I already told you guys I went to Milan to visit one of my best friends Melissa, and her boyfriend Philip.
Those two are some of the sweetest people I know and I am forever grateful to have people like them in my life.
You know good friends can always make even the worst situation better, so I think it’s important to always stay in touch and never take your good friends for granted.
(M you know I would travel the world just to see you)
But of course Melissa and Philip have a lot of friends in Milan since Philip lives there and Melissa is soon gonna move there…so I got introduced to a lot of people at one time haha… and I must say it was a bit overwhelming, but I tried to keep calm and today I’m just happy that had the opportunity to meet so many lovely people.
Especially one…But I’m gonna tell that story later.
Oh and the food, well it tasted just as good as it looks.
So, if I’m ever gonna move to Milan I’m probably gonna end up being fat.
And of course there will soon be a video up from my first trip, so keep yourself updated for that.
But yeah as I said a few weeks after my first trip I went back to see this very special person that ended up meaning everything to me and in fact, that’s why I’m going to Milan again on March 9.
To enjoy the company of the love of my life.
So almost two weeks ago I returned from my trip to Milan.
I had the most amazing trip, I’ve been seeing my girl Melissa, spending time with her and her boyfriend Philip, meeting some of their sweet friends, meeting someone…, ate a lot of pasta and much much more!
But you’ll soon get a glimpse of my little trip here on my blog when I finally get to finish my vlog.
But lately I just have so many things to take care of, mostly work and people around me… so that’s why it’s taking me so long to get it done, but it’s coming I promise!
But in the meantime just watch this little lookbook that I made ft. Melissa & Philip you know where to find them.
So a few months ago I shot some photos for my dear friend Amalie, who is the founder of By Amalie Rytter – Scandinavia.
By Amalie Rytter is a jewellery brand which is focusing on earrings that follows the trends of our time.
What characterises the brand is their raw and minimalistic jewellery design, combined with an it-girl feeling.
Which I think creates a nice contrast between being “trendy” and staying “simple”, besides that it’s the perfect compromise for the it-girl that wants more, but still doesn’t want to go broke at the end of the month.
So If you like what you see, go follow By Amalie Rytter on Instagram for more updates.
So I know it’s been a while since the Erdem X H&M collection was launched, but I think I’ll give it a go with this post anyway.
I’m gonna be honest with you guys, I’v never really been into the whole H&M collaborating with high end designer brands like Kenzo ,Balmain, and so on.
But! then this collection was created and I instantly fell in love with every single piece.
The collection, and the entire universe that Erdem have created is unbelievably beautiful, the collection is filed with sharp cuts, dramatic dresses, lace, and flower prints which is very typical for Erdems catwalk collections.
The universe of this collection is in my opinion just magnificent…I mean have you seen the commercial for this collection ? pure perfection I tell you. Just check it out here.
So yeah, of course I was in the line in front of H&M the 2. November, and luckily I got my fingers on this amazing dress and even better these adorable earrings.
Another thing about this collection I really like, is the fact that Erdem and H&M got one of my favourite bands (Years & Years) to write a song for this collection and it’s commercial.
So naaah, I actually don’t think that this collection could possibly get any better, because it’s already perfect.
Just a super quick tip for all my shopaholic fellas out there.
First I want to say that I’m a huge fan of recycling, vintage and what ever to call it.
It’s very rare that I’ll ever buy expensive designer things, brand new at a store. I like that my items have a history and of course I like to save that extra cash, just as well caring about the environment.
And that’s why I want to tell you about Vestiaire Collective, if you don’t know what Vestiaire Collective is, you should definitely go check the app or website out. Personally I have only been using the app, because it’s so much easier on the go.
Vestiaire Collective is this site/app were people can sell and buy designer items, both vintage and brand new items.
It’s super easy to use, because of the wishlist function on the app, and another thing I like about Vestiaire Collective is the fact, that every time you buy something the seller first have to ship the item to Vestiaire Collective where they check the standard of the product.
And that’s nice!
My latest buy from Vestiaire Collective is this cute pastel pink clutch/purse from Chanel.
I have a little DIY dream that includes this clutch so I’m pretty exited about how that’s gonna turn out.
So here in Copenhagen it’s kinda went from summer season to fall season, over night.
But Zaful got me covered with this comfy sweater and even though it’s fall season, the sun has been out and about here in Copenhagen so I thought why not pair it with these cute cat eye sunglasses, which is also from Zaful.
But yeah, a couple of weeks ago I was contacted by Zaful, and they asked me if I would like to do a review on some of their products. And of course I was in for it.
So I picked out a sweater and these sunglasses.
The products are first of all, so much better than I thought they would be.
The sweater is thick and warm, and just a perfect item for the fall season. It has these very cute ribbons on the sleves which I think give the sweater a nice edgy look.
And now to the sunglasses, I think that everything about them is just perfect.
They are these white cat-eye-shaped sunglasses which would appear to be of solid quality. And most of all I just really like the American 50’s vibe they give me.
And just as a reminder I want to say, that yes this is a sponsored article, but remember it’s a review and everything I’ve wrote is 100% my honest opinion.
Once again thanks to Zaful, I really appreciate it.
Hello ladies and gents.
So I’m pretty god damn tired of the danish summer weather and all I want right now is just some nice autumn weather so I can wear boots, coats and sweaters again.
I know it’s weird wishing for autumn since most people mostly wish for summer weather… I don’t know I guess I’m just weird.
I think it’s because danish summer weather is like 10% sunny days, 45% rainy days, and 45% windy days. And when I think of summer, I think of REAL summer, like the weather around the Mediterranean. That’s real summer weather.
Actually, I’m going to Spain next week, so stay tuned.
Hello ladies and gents,
So as you may know Copenhagen fashion week started this week.
Personally I used to go to all the events that I possibly could, but this year I really dont’t have the time for it.
Because I’m now working a fulltime job in Monki which I’m so happy about, but of course working 37 hours a week takes a lot of time, even thought its in the best store with the best colleges ever.
But! Monday night I scrolled through CFW Instagram site, and there was a competition going on where you could win an entrance for two people to the Zalando Studio x Copenhagen fashion week event, there would be goodiebags, drinks and snacks , and lots of interviews with designers form all over Scandinavia, an interview focusing about personal branding, trend AW17 talk with Mie Juel and Mads Emil Grove Møller, Scandinavian style interview with Malene Malling, exhibition, lounge and a fashion show with some of the new design talents, and of course a cocktail hour where DJ Emilie Lilja would be playing.
And yeah then me and Melissa won, whup whup!
But we both had to work that day, Melissas had no problem getting the day off, but I had a little struggle because I didn’t knew if I could go earlier form my shift. But for my luck and because I have the best boss in the world,
my boss said that it was okay for me to leave earlier.
So I literally ran down to the metro after work, got on my way the to ‘Papirhallen’ where the whole thing was going to be hosted.
Met dear Melissa and we were ready to atten the event. Btw that’s also why I looked so casual in some of the photos, because I came directly from work haha.
But yeah the event was brilliantly planned, my favourite part of the event was the fashion show with new design talents.
I especially liked the collection from Heliot Emil.
The first picture here in this post is actually a picture of my favourite look from the collection.
And of course moving on to the goodiebag.
In the goodiebag there were all the things you see here on the picture above, and of course a lot of snacks and drinks. But I ate it all, sorry I’m a hungry girl. There was also a little love tag form Jane Kønig with the letter Z, it was possible to exchange it to another letter, but I decided to keep it, since my old dog’s name was ‘Zigo’.
And after a perfect day with fashion shows, and a lot of interviews with some of the best people in the business here in Denmark.
Me and Melissa decided to eat at Tony’s and get a three meal dinner.
And I can say that it was delicious.
So this is my new baby from Gucci.
I bought it last week and I have literally been wearing it ever since. I bought it in the Gucci store at ‘Strøget’, I had been looking at the model for a while, and then finally I had a day off work and decided to give myself a nice gift. Nothing can bring a woman more happiness like a high fashioned materialistic bag. That was a joke.
But I will admit that this bag really have given me a true sense of joy every time I have looked at it. Another thing I like about buying designer things vintage or not, is that I always have to work hard and save a lot of money to afford a bag like this.
And I know that it maybe sounds stupid, but it really gives me the feeling of being a true power woman.
Hello ladies and gents
So, last thursday me and my friend and blogger Melissa went out for a little shopping in the city.
And I tell you guys, it have literally been raining all summer here in Copenhagen and last thursday was no exception.
But we had a nice time anyway, we stopped by a lot of high end vintage stores, got a little break at kaf’ bar 9, and I finally got myself a little something from the gucci store.
And of course I will reveal what I got very soon.
And hey check out Melissa’s new blog post as well right here.
Pyjamas shirt // thrifted Shoes // Asos Bag // Louis Vuitton T-shirt // H&M Sunglasses & accessories // Random internet shops.
So I’ve found this old pyjamas shirt in the men’s section, in my local thrift shop.
It’s basically only old people who shops in that thrift store, so the staff always look weird at me when I enter the store. But whatever. I’ve found a bunch of nice things in that store, but the first thing I thought I would share with you guys is this champagne coloured pyjamas blouse. It’s pretty lit.
it’s been a while since me and Melissa took these photos, but they still need to see the light here on the blog.
There’s nothing like a cute summer dress on a hot day.
On this day, me and Melissa went crazy in a vintage store to find a good old-fashioned summer dress. We both decided to style the dresses with at pair of heels. You know, it’s summertime, so why not show some skin. And, let’s be real, heels just makes your legs look even better.
But yeah.. I hope you enjoy the pictures, and btw Melissa just started her own blog so check it out right here.
So I’m finally back with a new show me your style post here on the blog.
So as you guys, maybe know these “show me your style” posts are actually one of my favorite things to post here on blog, and I finally interviewed my best friend Anna here. But this time there will be a new little add to the post, if you scroll down you can see the video of the interview that we did.
And I must admit that I really enjoy making Youtube videos lately, and I have been thinking about taking Youtube a little more seriously, so hehe stay tuned, and remember to subscribe and all that jazzz 😉
But if you wanna see more of Anna’s cute style just keep scrolling.
Anna Lyhne Studying Biotechnology in Copenhagen, with a love for cats and everything green.
Describe your style in threewords. Sustainable, cosy, and with a twist of Harry Potter
What are you wearing right now? Pants from Monki, coat from Cos, boots from Dr. Martens, and the first bag my mom ever bought when she was young.
What is most important to you in an outfit? The shoes, it’s all about the shoes.
Who/what inspires you the most in terms of yourstyle? I guess my mom does, she has been a big influence and has the largest shoe collection I have ever seen. People and things around me are also a big inspiration.
Favouritebrands? That would be Dr. Martens. Most of my Dr. Martens shoes are thrifted and the same goes for my clothes.
What has been your biggest style failure? When I was young I tried to dress kind of alternatively and it was not a success. It didn’t fit me and it didn’t reflect who I was properly.
Do you have any favourite items in yourwardrobe? My coat, my black jeans, and my shoe collection that primarily consists of Dr. Martens boots.
Which items do you dream ofowning? None, I have everything I need.
What is your best styletip? Choose a colour or a statement piece when putting together an outfit and finish it of with a pair of black boots.
But remember to do whatever works for you – and don’t let other people tell you what’s wrong or right. If you want to wear six colours at the same time, do it!
Thanks to Anna
If you wanna watch the interview, it’s available down below.
So I know I have been the worst blogger in the world lately, but I have been so busy with school and everything so…. yeah.
And I’m really depressed by the fact that it takes all of my focus, so I’m actually just looking forward to be done with this study, so I can get back to blogging again.
But! I bought some new sneakers (kicks) in London, so I thought why not show you guys a little outfit with them on.
Hope you all are well, and has the best sunday ever.
I don’t know about you guys, but I really have an obsession with earrings at the moment, especially gold earrings.
So I thought, why not share my little obsession with you guys!
All the earrings in my collage are pretty affordable, which is an added bonus! So yeah… I don’t know why I’m excited like this… but it may have something to do with the espresso that Im drinking in the middle of the night.
So not much has happened lately… and honestly, it’s because I’m lazy as fuck.
I have, however, just received some pretty exciting samples of something I’m working on, which I can’t wait to show you guys! But I’m gonna have to wait for a while, because it has to be perfect. And I also have to figure out what I want to do with it, before I show you the final product.
Let’s talk about the pictures. The pictures were taken yesterday, and the gorgeous faces you see in the pictures are the faces of two of my very best friends.
And we thought, because we all love to take photos like everyone else in this Instagram world. Why not take some squad photos will we’re strolling around the city anyway? So we did.
And I have to say, I really like the final product :3
But… what am I thinking about? it could only turn out good with these two lovely ladies in front of my camera.
So yesterday hvisk celebrated the opening of their new flagship store here in Copenhagen.
So me and my friend Melissa joined the celebration, and even though it was a small and cozy event, I have to say that it actually gave me a lot of new inspiration.
The shop is so cute.. It’s small and filled with elegant and play full jewelry…. and a random thing I was very exited about, was the selling… its such an old Copenhagen each.. style selling and I’m literally just in love with it.
Btw, there is up to 70% sale on their website right now, so go check that out.
Pssssst! guys! if you click on the pictures of the outfits, you will be sent to the webpage Polyvore where you can finde all the Items!
So New years eve is coming up, I mean of course we just have to pass Christmas…but for me Christmas isn’t that big of a deal. I mean in my family it’s pretty much just the national “dress up in a Christmas jumper day”… so I already know what to wear for Christmas. But for me New Years Eve is always a hard day to find the perfect outfit…. because you wanna look even better than the fireworks in the sky, but at the same time you don’t wanna look like someone that is trying too hard, right?
That’s why I’m dressing casually this year, but with a small twist in every outfit. You know just to spice it up a little bit.
So yeah, I hope that my outfits can be helpful for you guys.
Btw I’m celebrating New Years eve with a little group of my good friends… what are you guys doing for New Years eve?
At the moment I’m feeling blessed that I have such good people around me… lately I have ben thinking to myself “you are a god damn lucky girl, appreciate it!” And I would say that I definitely do..
But yeah… this is just at little out and about outfit with my “bag sister” Ekua. I love that girl… she always makes me laugh, and are such and inspirational person.
So lately I have bought a lot of new stuff… but these sneakers are defiantly one of my favorite items of all time.
I’ve been searching for them for so long and finally I found them in the footlocker shop in Copenhagen… and the best part of the story is that I got them 500kr cheaper than the original price!
But yeah, I’m just so happy about these babies.
So I’m finally back with a new show me your style post here on the blog.
