Despite the 27 degrees Celcius I still met up with Malene for an after work kinda coffee this Monday (oh well she got an ice latte). We sat by the lakes at Original Coffee, which is definitely the best coffee chain in Copenhagen. Beforehand I went to one of my favorite hair accessories brands Pico on Østerbrogade to buy a few more scrunchies and hair clips. These two beautiful ones came with me home.
May has been treating us really well so far. It has felt like summer and that has been doing something very positive for my mood. It is so uplifting to feel the sun on my body again and the warmth it gives. As for the moment I don’t really have a job and my mom had some leftover vacation she needed to spend so we decided to go to our summerhouse on Fyn for little over a week. Later the rest of the family joined us so we could spend the Bank Holiday together.
When we came home from the summerhouse Malene and I decided to take a trip to Tisvildeleje for the evening. We bought some wine, bread and cheese and enjoyed the last beams of sun on the beach.
I have been very much behind on blogging since arriving back home in Denmark. It is not because I feel uninspired. Far from actually. I just think I have been needing a little bit of time to just relax, settle in and spend some quality time with my family.
So this outfit is from my last day in London three weeks ago (how can it already be that long?). It was so warm and lovely and I was wearing my new dotted skirt from Mango. Nice to have bare legs again although they are very pale after a long winter.

Art was something I was never really interested. Like really NOT interested in. As a child I didn’t like going to museums, art exhibitions etc. A lot of things have changed since then. Now I have found the love for art and I have become much more creative over all. It is a whole new world opening up to me and I’m curious to learn more.
These works of art are painted by Henri Matisse & Léa Maupetit who have quickly grown into being some of my favorite artists.
I’m still in the possession of tons and tons of pictures from London. Don’t worry they will all get up on the blog eventually. I’m also in the midst of writing a few more guides to some of the different areas of the city that I loved the most. I have now been home for 10 days and although I love Copenhagen I do miss London (a lot). At the moment I have a feeling of being torn between the two cities. I guess it just takes time to (re)adjust.
In these pictures I am wearing my new checkered blazer from Urban Outfitters and blue corduroy trousers from Weekday that I also purchased recently when I went in there on a whim. Accidentally, they match perfectly together. This outfit made me realize how much my style has actually changed over the past few years (or maybe just during my time in London). I know that I (obviously) get influenced by trends but before I came to London I would never wear blazers let alone corduroy. Sometimes a little change can be very refreshing.

I have a ton of pictures on my phone of this beautiful cherry blossom tree that lives close to my home during my stay in London. I could follow the development every day. This is what makes Spring one of the best times of the year. When everything is blooming it makes you so optimistic and excited for all the new things to come.
The weather also started to feel like Spring. On this particular day it was 19 degrees Celcius. Here, I’m enjoying a iced latte at Wulf & Lamb near Sloane Square.
Again this picture was taken on a day where the weather was absolutely incredible. Malene came to visit me and we just enjoyed the sunshine in Holland Park and ate fresh fruit and guacamole.
On our last evening in London we decided to walk all the way through Hyde Park before heading to dinner in Mayfair. It was such a treat to see a sunset like that.
Malene looking gorgeous and colorful in her dress from Lovechild 1979 and knit from Acne Studios.
We also did a bit of shopping (even though I’m always trying not to). I bought this beautiful blazer from Urban Outfitters. It is very lightweight and perfect for Spring and Summer.
I also had a little “fika” with my Swedish girls at Fabrique (which is a Swedish bakery chain). This place makes the best cinnamon buns. I will miss these girls so much (but hey now I just have an excuse to come to Sweden more often)!
Another pretty corner in London. I swear I have at least a 1,000 of these kind of pictures in my camera roll.
I’m heavily into candy stripes, velour bags and chunky sneakers (or should I call them trainers by know?) as you can probably tell from the above.
The bag is from the amazing brand Staud which I recently discovered probably through Lucy Williams (aka. Fashion Me Now) as everything she mentions is gorgeous. Literally. They make amazing bags (you have most likely already seen the “plant pot in the fishnet”) but also their clothing collection is worth taking a look at.
