leopard + faux fur + black polo neck + Acne boots
Here in London it’s not quite cold enough yet to be wearing chunky outerwear. Now normally I would not be complaining about that (trust me, one thing I don’t miss about NYC is the insane winters) – but I’m having a really difficult time waiting.
Okay, so I realise I’ve been going on a bit about my recent trip to Copenhagen. But from the delicious food to our stylish hotel, there was a lot to love. And to finish it off, I thought I’d share a very brief account of how I fell in love with a new clothing store: Moss Copenhagen.
I’m really into longer dresses and skirts that are a sort of maxi-midi hybrid – and this chic Joseph dress just happens to be on mega sale. I love it with matching heels and a contrasting clutch. And, of course, a moto jacket to keep it from feeling too dressed up.
Every year when October rolls around I go into coat-scouting overdrive. My desire for chic outerwear is even more intense living in London because the winters are more mild. You can get away with wearing a wool coat – perhaps even partially unbuttoned. Whereas in New York City’s you’re pretty much required to zip yourself into a full-length sleeping bag from November to March.
Leading up to our weekend city-break to Copenhagen, I did a tiny bit of shopping… and then a tiny bit more once we arrived. So, of course, I was excited to take my new pieces out for a test drive. Luckily, it was ridiculously sunny and gorgeous the entire weekend, and the scenery was made for street style snapping.
This past weekend featured three of my favourite things: sunshine, wine and quality hang-time with my girlfriends. There was also Mexican food, whisky and a punting guide who looks like Aladdin – but that’s for another post.
Truth time: I have a lot of clothes that I never wear. Either they don’t quite fit right or I don’t have the pieces to pair them with… or they just kind of blah. So I got kind of weirdly excited when I resuscitated this skirt last weekend…
