There’s nothing I could want more for the beach this summer… Lynx bathing suit.
As I mentioned before, I did some shopping in London! It was really fun to visit the huge stores on Oxford… you can literally get lost in them — Topshop & Topman even has a store map to help you navigate! After a long stroll, I picked up some nude Nevada lipstick from Topshop and gushed over the perfect summer boot. I also found a French linen tunic shirt from Uniqlo and a striped crop top at American Apparel, which I’ll wear for those breezy summer nights.
The next day we visited Brick Lane which is full of vintage stores, where I found a pair of amazingly altered Gap leather shorts at Beyond Retro, and an even better blouse-bomber pullover.
Next vacation is to Berlin in June, and I couldn’t be more excited! Last time I visited, I found an insane amount of cool vintage clothes. Summer is starting to look great! 🙂
Lots of sales recently hit Copenhagen stores and I took a liking to the jewelry brand Pilgrim. They have lots of funky statement necklaces and bracelets but I mostly enjoyed their more simple pieces, like these silver plated rose earrings and long gold charm necklace. The prices are not bad!
Find them here 🙂
…From my parents! They came to see me in Copenhagen for the past 2 weeks, and 5 of those days were spent in London. It was such a treat going to London again, it’s been a solid 3 years since my last visit. We spent our time here in CPH visiting wine bars, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Den Blå Planet (Denmark’s newest aquarium), strolling about flea markets, and a few days in Hesnæs (a beautiful beach down south). Then off to London! We split up a few days since I’ve seen most tourist-y things, so Anders and I chilled out along Brick Lane, Camden canals, Hackney, and Old Street. Oh yeah, and a “little” bit of shopping on Oxford. What a week!
Sheep furniture… want
So excited for art
Spot the cat…
Sun galore in London
Live painting thing in Hackney, woo!
Yesterday I went out window shopping for the first time in what feels like forever! It was nice to see some of the spring looks at various stores and of course I came home with a few things on my “wish list”. I’m super happy to see the Designers Remix SS13 in the flesh, I pretty much want the entire line (especially this skirt). I also popped in to Topshop to look for a new blazer and picked out this Boyfriend style, and then this Chambray suit caught my eye. I wouldn’t mind having something like that for the warmer weather!
This past weekend Finderskeepers threw their design/clothing market at Korsgadehallen. There were tons of sellers with handmade jewellery, big color-block posters, and screen prints galore. My friends Double Standard, WAAITT, My Buemann, and Liv Caroline looked great at their tables. I spotted a cool sweatshirt style leather top from Hide and noticed that soon they’ll have a webshop.
Yeah, right! The sun has teased Denmark the past few days, allowing everyone to wear maybe one less layer, but this afternoon all hope froze — literally. It’s been a mini-blizzard and I can’t believe it. Luckily the other day I had the urge to finally purchase a pair of goulashes (which I’ve needed for hikes in the forrest) and now they’ll come in handy. Just when you think you can pack up the winter jackets… sheesh! Anyway, these beauties are from Topshop (bought on Ebay) and are very comfortable. I’ve been looking for a boot that fits nice around the calf and doesn’t have that normal goulash bulkiness.
