CPH street fashion: Walking the Blues


Spotted this girl from a block away and I had to snap a couple shots of her!
From her super coordinated blues and nudes to her nonchalant composure- it was perfect.
Not to mention that she was also one of the nicest people.

There will be a section in the sidebar for the Copenhagen Street Style shots.
This way you can finally see why this city might have some of the best dressed.

Think this




-light wash denim
-cuffed sleeves
-pleated and tapered pants
-half moon pockets
-wooden buttons
-not too tight/loose
This would be the perfect romper to find this summer.

Flash


Im determined to wear my favorite pieces and still bike- buttttt without flashing everyone.
I found the perfect solution in these American Apparel salmon bike shorts.
Cant wait to wear them under skirts, shorts, more dresses, long shirts and sweaters...
Yeah, you might be seeing too much of these.

Floating softly




There is something extremely romantic about morning coffee.
Yes, Im talking about me, my cup of coffee and the light coming in. Nothing else.
Some days this weightless and sweet feeling just stays all day- 
 I cant help but pick through my closet in the same mindset.

Came across the french line Calle and feel in love with some of the soft pieces in the collection
I posted it as a Favorite Look of the Day a couple days ago. Check it out at Calle.fr

Summer 2010


This summer all Im seeing are soft, feminine pieces with a rough touch to balance it out.
Now Im just waiting for this weather to warm up. I just cant think cooler outfits anymore.

Ive finally joined weardrobe and chictopia.

Highlighter


Some favorites you wear over and over..like this jacket.
Some favorites seem too dear to pull out all the time..like this vintage skirt.
Dug it out of my mothers 80's collection and knew I had to add this to my closet.
Always had this idea that a leather skirt would be constricting but its just the opposite-
which fits my motto that fashion should always be comfortable as well.

Button Backbone

Its the cut and subtle details that can make you fall in love with such a classic and simple piece.

Wore this Solitaire blouse with my Amanda Smith blazer, Aldo wingtips and skull ring.


Notice: I have entered into a pink phase.
Im trying to embrace it but its actually quite hard.
My style, what I like, the type of person I am- its not pink. So the task of working in a contradictory component into my present wardrobe will have to take some figuring out.
Lets hope I dont become a glob of pink cotton candy..

1X3: Floral Lace Edition

This lace detailed blouse from h&m has become a favorite.
Its also perfect to tuck into a skirt or layer under a blazer. Even h&m thought it was timeless enough to make a second version for their summer 2010 collection. Instead of the floral lace found on this winter/spring edition, they've changed to polka dots.

-outfit two: target single pocket tank, bdg pants, topshop woven flats
-outfit three: h&m black bodycon dress, chelsea boots

Paper Thin

Layering is key around here. The mornings are cold but by the middle of the day your pealing off the layers.

The split hemline adds a fun twist to my current favorite paper thin tops.
Makes me feel like some sort of bug..
is that even a good thing to feel like?!

City Blocks

Finally settled back into this beautiful city where style and effortlessness are synonymous.
Everyone's got their own thing going on- Ill have to find a way to show you what I mean.
Now to just deal with the fact that my blogger, facebook...everything's in Danish.

The "Favorite look of the day" feature is back on twitter.
