Finding the perfect trench

VERA MODA trench (similar), ZARA skort and bag (similar), STEVE MADDEN sandals, UO necklaces (here), PANDORA bangle c/o Joshua James (here), MANGO top (here)

Hey you! How are you doing? Your hair looks great like that. 
Ok enough of the sweet talking, I'm baaack! I actually got back from Ibiza on Sunday after a semi-hellish 12 hours in Gatwick airport, meaning I didn't get back home until about 2AM and subsequently crashed out for the next 48 hours to catch up on the sleep my body so desperately needed after a week of getting home at 7am. Needless to say it was one of the best weeks of my life, but I'll share more of it later.
I was going to post yesterday but after a week of eating grilled cheese and ketchup and drinking until the early hours, I decided my body needed a bit of a detox so I decided to fast for the day just to get rid of everything and give my body a break. You might not be sure how this links to an inability to blog- let's just say when I'm hungry, I get cranky. Like, Hulk cranky. You don't need to see/read/experience that so I held off one more day and I feel ready to dive back in.
As I mentioned in the 5th blogiversary post (lame word, but efficient) I'll be taking the blog in a slightly more lifestyle and writing direction as opposed to just fashion. I'm still working out how exactly to do this without losing too much of the personal style element but what it does mean is that I have bucket loads of fun planned so I actually have things to blog about.

Ok, I'm gonna sign out but I'll be back! (insert evil laugh/ stroking of white cat on swivel chair)

Down in Helsingor

& OTHER STORIES top and skirt, DKNY bag, QUAY sunglasses (similar), ZARA sandals (similar).

One of my favourite places to visit when I'm here in Danmark for the summer is Helsingor- it is by far the prettiest of towns and while there isn't a whole lot to do (other than take a ferry over to Sweden) unless you have a boat, I'm a sucker for pretty buildings and there's no shortage of them. 
I took these pictures last week on one of the amazing summer days we've been having- weirdly enough nobody made any funny looks or comments when walking by, for once. I think I blended in with the Swedish tourists taking photos everywhere- note to self, take more outfit posts in touristy spots.

I picked up this skirt and top in & Other Stories a couple weeks ago in Copenhagen, despite loving the store I've never actually been able to find anything I absolutely must have. I feel really classy in it, way classier than I actually am, and that seems like an undeniable win to me. Anything that makes you feel like the Queen of a small yet powerful European country deserves a spot in your wardrobe.
Have a great rest of week!

Beach dress day to night

ASOS sunglasses and bag, TOPSHOP bag, sandals and heels, RIVER ISLAND bikini, GEORGE AT ASDA dress (here)

Summer is in full swing and I'm feeling beach clothes big time- kaftans, sandals, sunglasses. The whole shezam. One of the great things about summer in terms of satisfying just how sartorially lazy I can be is that most summer and beach clothes can pretty easily move you right into the evening with a few changes. This sparkly frock is a pretty bangin' example of how- relaxed sandals and bright accessories by day, sky high wedges and...bright accessories by night.
Summary; summer = bright accessories if, like me, you're all black everything by habit. Bright pink bedazzles optional but highly reccomended. Why does everything seem easier when the temperature is above 20 degrees?

Brb I'm off to Ibiza

MISSGUIDED twin set (here)

As you read this I should hopefully be heading safely off to Ibiza, leaving Danmark behind for a week. Since this week is about hanging out with my friends and exploring a new place, I won't be blogging from there but I do have some scheduled posts ready and I will be instagramming so feel free to keep up with my little adventure there!
Have a great weekend!
