Hello my lovely readers! I beg of you to forgive me being MIA on my first few days in Copenhagen! But never fear I have arrived and of course am having the time of my life! As you may have assumed I am staying with one of my best friends and best blogger Fie!
(See her blog here)
She has just ventured out on her own into her own new apartment and the wifi is not set up..pause for a horrified reaction. Okay so yes, please do forgive me for being absent but I am back and here to share my trip to Copenhagen and my Scandinavian inspired street style with you for a little bit. This is only the start of many many many adventures to come for me to share here.
On my first day here in the gloomy yet gorgeous city of Copenhagen I was pretty chilly as we Southern Californians get when in a more nordic climate as I am sure that you can imagine! Going from 85 degrees plus everyday to 60 at the hottest is a little bit tough for us. The thing is that Danish Summer is basically Los Angeles winter. So please don’t mock me for wearing my new Acne coat in the middle of August. Here on one of my first days back in Copenhagen we took it fairly easy since jet lag has been wrecking me! We went out into a trendy little district with amazing vintage stores and where one of Fie’s good friends has opened a new little cafe called Hope CPH. It was delightfully refreshing as a new health conscious and clean eating sort of bar with perfect acai bowls and heavenly veggie tapas. If visiting Copenhagen I definitely recommend giving it a try!
Scandinavian style is known for being very minimalistic as goes with their style of decor. It’s sleek, it’s chic, it’s magnifique (sorry, I love a good show tune). But it is very sleek and chic and incredibly minimalistic in a color palette of whites, greys, blacks and maybe the occasional navy blue there’s a certain sort of smart charm to the way our Nordic sisters and brothers dress. Whenever I travel to a new place I like to dress in a certain way that I think embodies the vibes I want feel while I am there. So here is my take on a little scandinavian street style complete with Commes Des Garcons stripes and all. That’s all for now I’m heading out into the city! Ciao for now loves! (If I knew how to spell Goodbye in Danish I would put that instead ;)
