Last week I...

received a package from H&M, which contained two pair of sandals.

This first pair, I'm super excited about.

They are so soft and so pretty - gonna be a summer favorite!

These I was not into.

They are of very poor quality and the sole is freakishly long.

They're going to be sent back!

The soccer match...

I ventured to the couch to watch last night was downed by this beer - the Boyfriend and I shared this big glass, but it was much needed, cause the Danish boys played only a little better than usual.

The Boyfriend and...

I both had a day off today.

We did absolutely nothing special.

Went for a walk, but forgot to take an Outfit Photo, so here's one form our entryway.

tights H&M, dress Cos, cardi Topshop

Now I'll join him on the couch for a soccermatch.

For today's outfit...

I felt like being outside, but as I didn't have a photographer at hand I placed my camera on a chair in my kitchen and went out on the balcony for the pic. Gotta work with what you have.

I'm currently looking for places around town where I can place my camera on something solid and take a somewhat good photo, but nothing really good has come up yet.

All bundled up...

I reclaimed my favorite reading spot on our balcony.
It's been about 5 months since I've been able to sit out there enjoying the sun.

This will be where I spend my favorite alone time the next 5-6 months.

I almost died...

when I was doing my usual blog round yesterday.
The always chic blogger Irina showed her new bag and I instantly fell in love.
I went to the brand Su-shi to gaze at all the different shapes and colors.

The only downer is that they're prized at $198, so I'll have to save my money to afford one.

Sooo pretty and they can be bought right here

This past saturday...

I threw a spontaneous party for a few people from work.
I got off from work at 8pm and they were to arrive at 9, so I was a bit too busy to take a pic of my outfit, which is why you guys get the '2-days-later-wrinkled-from-laying-on-the-floor-now-just-hanging-on-the-hanger' picture of the dress I wore.

I've laid out...

some of my clothing options for tonight on my bed, trying to figure out what to wear... might end up wearing something not pictured.

Right now I have to clean up a bit, and then it's off to work.

Tonight this is...

my companion.

I do love me some wine, and it's been a while since I've had a good white wine, and this one is very good!!

I've only celebrated...

St. Patrick's Day once - when we went on a schooltrip to Ireland in High School.
I wish I could go out and have a few beers tonight, but work is calling.

Someone celebrate a little for me, please.

I was going...

thru the new items at H&M's Online Store, but nothing caught my eye.
I proceeded to their 'bags' section and these two cuties almost made it to my shopping bag.

This is such a cute shape, but I really don't need a bag of this size (I really don't NEED a new bag)

This should have had the option for a strap of some kind and I would have bought it.
I hate it when I'm out on the town and I have to have my bag in my hand at all times.
I prefer to have a crossbody bag or atleast one with handles or a strap to wear around my wrist.
I didn't purchase these two, but a couple of spring shoes are on their way to me.

tirsdag den 15. marts 2011

The shoes I...

mentioned in the previous post are these.
They are Defeeters (a brand I've never heard of) and I bought them for 100DKK (marked down from 500), which I think is a steal.

I love this light grey color, and I'm hoping to find a spring/summer jacket in a similar color.

mandag den 14. marts 2011

This is my...

new favorite outfit.
The skirt I bought last week, while visiting my sister.
I wanted to wear some new shoes I also bought, but my one foot is kinda hurt, so that wouldn't be a good idea.

boots tights H&M, skirt Cos, bag Urban Outfitters, shirt tube Gina Tricot

I love that it wasn't too cold to take off the jacket and do some posing.

Am I really...

the only one in blogland, who's bothered by the fact that H&M's Inclusive range was a lot less everyday-wear than expected?
I know they'd didn't actually lead us on, since they showed us the three first dresses in the pic below as a teaser, but since it's called Inclusive - and not Party Girl Inclusive - I expected there to be some daily basic stuff too.

The three first dresses are either no-shoulders or one-shoulder, which can give the bigger girls a problem when it comes to the bra-wearing. They could have solved that problem by offering a bra, which could be worn without straps or alternative strap-solutions, but they chose to only offer a bra with the biggest cup size being D... I'm very dissapointed!
And by the looks of the lack of sold-out signs online, I can only assume I'm not alone with the feeling!

One night President Obama and his wife Michelle decided to do something out of routine and go for a casual dinner at a restaurant that wasn’t too luxurious.
When they were seated, the owner of the restaurant asked the President’s Secret Service if he could please speak to the First Lady in private.
They obliged and Michelle had a conversation with the owner.
Following this conversation President Obama asked Michelle, “Why was he so interested in talking to you?”
She mentioned that in her teenage years, he had been madly in love with her. President Obama then said, “So if you had married him, you would now be the owner of this lovely restaurant,”
to which Michelle responded,
“No. If I had married him, he would now be the President.”

The Other Hand by Chris Cleave

This book is so phenomenally good and special that I will let the back speak for it:
"We don't want to tell you what happens in this book.
It is a truly special story and we don't want to spoil it.
Nevertheless, you need to know enough to buy it so we will just say this:
This is the story of two women.
Their lives collide one fateful day, and one of them has to make a terrible choice.
Two years later they meet again
-the story starts here...
Once you have read it, you'll want to tell your friends about it. When you do, please don't tell them what happens either. The magic is in how it unfolds."

I'm a sucker...

for fun jewellery - I don't actually buy it, since my grown up self is trying to ignore my teenage self when the wanting and needing for such unnecessary, but cute stuff, florish.
Just take a look at these Robot necklaces from Topshop...

My heart almost skipped a beat when I spottet this ring!

If only I had the money - and the space - for all these fun things!

I completely forgot...

to post this picture of the dress I was wearing last saturday to the company party.

It was the dress I bought in december, but it is unusually small, and I couldn't fit into it. They didn't have any bigger left, so I decided to keep it, and now it fits me - go me!

Yesterday I was...

channelling my inner penguin...

I've just bought the white shirt and black cardi-blazer at Gina Tricot.
I have an oversized black blazer, which I love, but this one is a lil' more now than the other one.

I'm a 'a-dab-of-pleather-here-and-there'-fanatic.
I now own 5 seperate items with it.
As long as I don't wear them together it's ok.

I'm a fan...

of the Danish tvprogram 'Do you know the type?' ('kender du typen'), where two lifestyle experts are guided around a somewhat famous person's home, and with hints and facts here and there they have to guess who's living there.

The female of this duo is a very petite and quite stylish girl (or atleast that's how the show's stylist portrays her), but the other day she wore this giant blue hat... why??
No, really, why??
It kinda resembles the British police hats, and it is way too big for het petite figure!!
I get that it was raining and they wanted to spare her hair from getting wet, but an umbrella would have done the job - and not made her look so foolishly tiny.
