A good pair of jeans and a nice colored or printed shirt have over time become my everyday uniform. I basically live in my jeans. They are such a good stable to have and just like a canvas you can color on top of them. I never used to wear blue jeans before I found these ones from Levi’s. It’s a vintage pair I bought in Amsterdam last summer. They have the perfect wash and fit which are probably the two things that matters the most when you’re looking for a nice pair of jeans.
As I have told you before I almost always find my shirts in vintage stores or on the markets. It’s like going on a treasure hunt. This one I only payed 5 £ for. Not bad at all.

I’ll admit that I’m a bit (if not a lot) obsessed with corduroy this season. It is true 70s but it has hopefully come back to stay – for good. For me it mostly reminds me of my sweet grandpa who always used to put his long legs in a pair of high waisted corduroy trousers. Although I love a good pair of corduroy trousers I also enjoy the textile in other forms like this dress I bought in Cos recently. It has the perfect rich caramel colour and I think it goes really well with navy blue (my other big obsession).

These pictures were taken a couple of days ago when it was 11 degrees or so. Not very winterly at all but when you live somewhere where snow is a rare thing then you welcome the warm winter weather. I love the snow but hate the cold (unless you are inside bundled up in front of the fireplace).
One of my favorite Friday activities is to go to the Portobello Road Market. They have so many good stalls with vintage clothes and accessories. The last time I visited I came home with this shirt and I absolutely adore the print.

Tomorrow I will take off for Paris… and that means I’m about to stuff all of my things into my suitcase (reminder to self: make room for shopping). I’m going on a mini Europe city adventure with one of my closest friends Sascha and Paris is first stop. Paris is one of those cities that you can re-visit a million times without ever getting bored or getting the feeling that “you have already seen it all”. There are always new neighborhoods to explore, new stores opening and delicious restaurants to eat in. A guidebook is always great to have on hand and my personal travel series favorite is “Turen går til…” by Politiken. There are plenty of information about sights, museums, restaurants, the cutest little phrasebook etc.
Next (and final) stop is Amsterdam and I simply can’t wait. I have heard so many amazing things about this city, but neither of us have been there. If you have any recommendations for Amsterdam (or Paris for that matter) feel free to message me or drop a comment.
