Av det er koldt udenfor – godt der findes store jakker! Da jeg gik i gymnasiet var jeg så træt af kulden fordi det betød jeg skulle have en kæmpe jakke på, også selvom jeg havde den flotteste dunjakke fra Hugo Boss med ægte pels kant og det hele. Jeg var bare træt af den fordi jeg ikke kunne finde ud af at sætte andet tøj til den uden jeg følte det var jakken der kom med mig og ikke omvendt. Det mindset valgte jeg at udfordre da jeg så den her vidunderligt smukke (men gigantiske) jakke fra Yves Salomon. Det kan godt lade sig gøre! Tricket for mig har været ikke at have noget alt for stramt på sammen med. Hvis jeg f.eks. havde haft nylon strømper og en nederdel sammen med jakken havde jeg haft sådan et par mærkelige lange stænger hængende ud fra under min jakke. Lidt ligesom Kylling fra Bamse & Kylling, det er også kostume og ben. Det ser sgu mærkeligt ud. Jeg valgte et par løstsiddende læder bukser og en stor strik til at komplimentere jakkens volume og så da lige et par lækre støvler. Kom bare an vinter!

english: Ouch its cold outside – thank god for huge coats! When I was in high school I hated the cold because it meant that I had to wear my big winter coat, and that is even though I had a really nice one from Hugo Boss with real fur trim. I just didn’t like wearing it because I always had the hardest time styling it. I always felt that the coat came with me and not the other way around. That mindset has been with me ever since but then I saw this Yves Salomon coat. I decided to break the pattern! It can be done! The trick for me has been not to wear anything too tight with it. A pair of stocking for example would not have been suitable for me because I would almost achieve a bell shape with long dangly legs beneath it. That looks weird man. So I choose a pair of loose leather trousers and a big knit to compliment the volume of the coat. And of course some awesome boots. Come at me vinter!

Hurraaa! I denne uge er det præcis 1 år siden at jeg blev selvstændig. Shit, det troede jeg ikke jeg skulle være i en alder af, på daværende tidspunkt, 22 år. Ved egentlig ikke om jeg nogensinde troede jeg skulle være selvstændig. For at være helt ærlig var det ikke rigtig “planen” men jeg genopstartede min blog fordi jeg følte jeg havde noget at sige, noget at vise og da så tiden på ELLE alligevel fandt sin ende tænkte jeg, “hvorfor ikke?”. Det var en meget mærkelig første dag på mit “nye arbejde”. Jeg sad der, i min sofa hjemme i stuen og tænkte “hvad fanden har du nu rodet dig ud i?”. Jeg fandt dog en stor tryghed i at min far har været selvstændig i mange år og at han jo, i min optik, kan svare på alle spørgsmål i verden. Då jeg følte mig ikke helt alene selvom han ingen erfaring har inde for den danske modebranche. Jeg lovede mig selv ikke at være for hård ved mig selv (for det har jeg tendens til) i den forstand at jeg ikke satte nogle økonomiske mål. Kun på den måde at hvis jeg kunne betale husleje den næste første i måneden – så kunne jeg fortsætte en måned mere. Nu er der gået et år og det går bedre end nogensinde. TAK til alle jer som læser med, jeg glæder mig til endnu et år med jer.

english: Hurraaaayyy! This very week it’s exactly 1 year since I started my own company and went full time on the blog. I didn’t really think I would have my own company at the age of 22. To be honest I haven’t ever dreamed of running my own business, maybe someone else’s but never my own. But I restarted the blog because I felt like I really had something to say, something to show you guys so when it was time for me to leave ELLE I just thought “why not?”. It was a very strange first day at my “new job”. And as I sat there on the couch in my living room I just thought “what the hell have you gotten yourself into now?”. I did although find great comfort in the fact that my dad has run his own business for years and in the fact that he can answer any question I come with. And that is even though he has absolutely no ties to the danish fashion industry. I promised my self not to be to hard on my self (which I have a tendency to be) in the sense that I didn’t set any economical goals for my self. Only in the way that if I could pay rent the next month then I could try for another. It’s been a year and the blog is doing better than ever. Thank you so much to all of you who tune in to read, it means the world to me and I am so excited to take on another year.

En af de absolut mest populære stylinger i vinteren 2016 / 2017 – jakken ned over skuldrene som giver dig meget længere ærmer, dvs. et mere arty look med fashionista tendenser. Mange gjorde det med hvide herreskjorte allerede sidste sommer og da Balenciaga så viste den røde jakke, off shoulder på deres fall / winter 2016 catwalk – ja så eksploderede det også udover vinter garderoben. For at følge denne trend behøver din jakke bestemt ikke være rød og det behøver ikke være en dynejakke. Det er også set gjort med uldfrakker, bomberjakker, korte jakker – you name it. Prøv dig frem, men vær forberedt på du ikke kan nå ting på den øverste hylde og du kan heller ikke rigtig holde din kaffe. God fornøjelse!

english: One of the most popular trends in the vinter of 2016 / 2017 – off shoulder bomber jacket that gives you longer sleeves, therefore a more artsy look with fashionista tendencies. Many did it already last summer with white mens shirts but then Balenciaga showed the red jacket in an off shoulder styling on the fall / winter 2016 catwalk – and that made the trend explode all over the winter wardrobes as well. To follow this trend you jacket doesn’t need to be red, it doesn’t even have to be a bomber. It has been done with long woolen coats, short jackets, blazers – you name it. Try for yourself but be aware that you will not be able to reach things on the high shelf and you probably can’t hold your own coffee either. Enjoy!

Min mor har altid sagt at med lidt rouge og farve på læberne kan det ikke gå helt galt. Som i nok allerede har gennemskuet så er jeg fuldstændig pjattet med læbefarve. I alle et’s former og afskygninger. I starten af 00’erne smurte man foundation eller concealer på sine læber for at få et helt ensartet look, efter kom et stort modsvar hvor læberne hverken kunne være store nok eller synlige nok. Nu er tendensen med de hudfarvet læber kommet lidt tilbage igen og jeg ser det mere og mere i gadebilledet. Dog denne gang er det komme tilbage som knap så “dullede” og i en mere nedtonet version. Kylie Jenner har f.eks. været en stor del af den tilbagevendende trend. Jeg er vild med den her læbefarve “undressed” fra Anastasia. Den er super pigmenteret og kan derfor dresses op og ned. Hvad mener i? Skal de beige/nude læber tilbage eller skal vi lige give det 10 år mere?

english: My mother always says, that a little rouge and some lip color goes a long way. As you have probably noticed I am crazed for lip colors, a good lipstick is like a drug to me. In the beginning of the 2000’sns (does that make sense?) it was quite popular to smear foundation across your face (lips included) or to wear a very nude lipstick. Then came a rebellious move in the other direction as lips couldn’t be big enough or bold enough – now it seems that the trend of “nude” is back. Better than ever in my opinion. King Kylie has definitely had a big part of the returning of the trend. I love this lip color “undressed” from Anastasia. It’s super pigmented which means you can dress it up or tone it down. What do you feel? Shall the beige/nude look have it’s return or should be give it 10 more years?

english: Danes know exactly what this is, hygge. Which is why I haven’t bothered writing a danish text to this post. Ya’ll know that this is about! You might have heard it before – it’s that word that is impossible to pronounce and there is not really an explanation for it. It’s just a way of life. “Hyue-gar,” “hoog-jar” or “hoo-gah” is kinda what it sounds like, but what does it really mean then? Hygge is cuddling on the couch with hot coca and your favorite person, hygge is brushing your teeth with your loved ones, hygge is sharing comfort food with your friends (just like I do every sunday). Hygge is watching your favorite movie alone. Hygge is a way of life, and is said to be the reason why Danes are the happiest people on the planet. Now I don’t know about that, I would say we are famously grouchy. BUT it is about staying in, being cozy in your surroundings. That has translated into a whole interior trend, one I forecast to be a big one in 2017! I have gathered some photos above to show you what hygge in interior could look like and below some favorites for styling your home!
