PREPARING FOR MOVING OUT | STYLE & THOUGHTS



So very soon I'll be 21 years old, and I am starting to look at apartments around Aarhus and Viby J. I wanted to move out for quite some time, but it's not like apartments are growing on trees. And with more students getting accepted into all the Universities, it's even harder to find something, that isn't ridiculously expensive.

But I have been put on a waiting list for one-room apartment in Viby J, but it's still expensive. All though right now, with my full-time job, I can afford it. But next year when I'll start studying again (Univeristy) I cannot afford it, so... What to do?

I know that the apartment I'll get it's a 40 square feet apartment, so the space isn't that big and it's a roof-apartment, so some of the walls are the roof. I am going with a kind of theme - bright orange colours as accents, clear furniture so it doesn't look so cluttered and kind of industrial vibe. I have some string dining stools, and my little brother has promised me to help building a fishtail table (nice, huh?)

But I want my place to be warming and stylish as sh*t, ha ha. I kind of want people to say: "Waaaaow" haha. And since it's one large room, I though of kind of spitting it up - if that makes any sense? On one of the sides, there's a little space in side the other apartment, where my bed exactly can be, so I thought of using those black boxes, like on the picture and creating a "wall" or just use some bookcases - there are some really raw and industrial from Ikea [Hyllis - HERE] that I love, I already have one - so I though off using two of those perhaps? Since both options still are open, the won't seem so bulky in the room, and still allow light to come through.

And I kind of want my clothes rack to get bigger, since there isn't there isn't a closet, then I'll have to make space for my clothes, and this doesn't take up a lot of space, and it looks SO good! But instead of two rows, I'll just have one. And I really like the "Sofa" as well, and it looks like an easy DIY job for myself to do. If you just put up against a wall and put some bigger pillows, then it will work well, I guess.

THREE FOR SUMMER // CLOTHES, SNEAKERS


So we're already almost half-way through April, which is crazy isn't it? It's almost Summer, but it doesn't really feel like it. The Danish weather is showing from it's best side, with a lot of rain and cold temperatures. But these three items just screams Summer to me, I don't know if the Koldskål is a part of it - but it feels like Summer, picture-wise.

Pants from Zara [HERE] | White Blazer from Hosbjerg [HERE] | Sneakers from Adidas [HERE]

I have never really like the wide pants before, it's just like the denim on denim thing, but now? I kind of love them - I have no idea what they'll look on me - but I am curious to see. And you can never really do wrong with a black pair pants - if they don't suit me well enough, I just wander around in them at home - which I probably will do anyway.

You can wear with either a loose top or more fitted one. You can dress the pants up or down. You can wear them to a more formal party, like a confirmation - with a shirt or a beautiful lace top, or you could wear it for the beach with a bikini cover-up. Some pants you can dress for the occasion, really!

Sneakers, again? Yup. I love me some sneakers or trainers. Seriously I can not get enough of sneakers. Especially Adidas sneakers, they just suit my feet the best! I have very small and wide feet, so even though I fit a 35 in length, they are usually to small wide-wise. So I use a size 36 or 36 2/3 in Adidas sneakers. I really like the cork sole, it's so unique and such a nice detail. I must say they have really stepped up their Stan Smith game, first the collab with Rita Ora, where there were some small details with gold dots and so on. Adidas really just nail their sneakers at the moment, if you ask me!

And nothing screams Summer like white, I am right? I love the cut and fit of the blazer, that you can easily "customize" it to your body shape, So if you want to show of your waist, then just make it more a fit shape or just as a loose blazer.  You can dress your outfit up with this beautiful blazer, but you can still wear for a more casual wear. Like with the pants, because the pants are so loose them give the look a more casual approach, and with the more formal look with the blazer, a perfect mix. Just dress it up with heels, and down with a pair of sneakers.

I really like this outfit together, all of the items. I could even consider wearing to a confirmation or a Summer party. Or even a beach wedding perhaps?

OUTFIT IDEAS FOR A CONFIRMATION // GUEST



So, I don't know how the whole confirmation process and such works in other countries, but I do know how it works here in Denmark! For seven years ago I held my confirmation at the age of 13 in 7th grade. I wore a (ugly) white dress, with white leggings (I know) and white flats. I got my hair curled at a hairdresser and she also put some light makeup on me. I got that special, kind of, princess treatment! And since I have been to quite some confirmations - also before my own. My little brother held his four years ago.

Jumpsuit from Zara [HERE] | Skirt from Asos [HERE] | Top from Asos [HERE]

So this year it is my cousin, Kristoffer, which is in the end of April. Sooo... the weather is kind of a tricky factor, outfit-wise. April so far has been... a mixed experience. For a while we had some beautiful sunny weather and lately, it's been grey, cold and cloudy, just like it was fall again. So even though these two outfits seems very summery, then can easily be converted into some more colder weather.

Just throw on some tights, and a blazer. The black jumpsuit - I have planned to put a sheer/see-through top underneath - I have one with black polkadots on, that I am planning to put underneath, to cover my arms and so it's a little warmer - but we are going to be inside anyway.

With the two piece, as I said, throw on a pair of tights and a blazer, or you could also put on some over-knee boots on. And then you are good to go
