Copenhagen was the city I started this years summer holiday with. If you haven’t been; make sure to put it on top of your must-see-cities list and that pronto! I find Copenhagen cool in that typically Scandinavian way, but a lot less pretentious compared to Stockholm.
My Copenhagen musts would include a trip to Torvehallerne – 60 artisan food stands serving the freshest produce from all over the globe; closely followed by the experience of discovering the city on rented city bikes (the best way to move around in the cyclist friendly Scandinavia during the summer season). The Botanical Gardens are wonderfully picturesque and HotDogs & Champagne is a bar serving..well, the two items as stated in their name. Who would have thought that the simplest of street foods and the finest of bubbly made for such a good combo?
Shopping is not to be forgotten – Danish fashion really appeals to me. Yet again; it carries the Scandinavian simplicity but being closer to Europe the Danes don’t fear colours the way Swedes do. This, my Swedish readers is solely my recent and personal analysis so I aim not to offend. 🙂
Cold cuts and Prosecco enjoyed on wooden chairs at Torvehallerne made for one of the nicest afternoons this summer.
The outfit above was a bit of a hit on Instagram so I thought I would share the shopping links with you here.
My off shoulder crop comes from Dubai based Maarli boutique (link HERE). The skirt is from good old reliable ZARA although since it’s mostly sold out I have found alternative links below:
- rich cognac hued suede midi skirt by Theory;
- patterned brocade by Alice + Olivia;
- pleats and pockets by Paul Smith;
Now onto pointy toe footwear:
- Croc-embossed Matt Bernson flats;
- Pointed-toe Loeffler Randall lace ups;
- Elegant, minimalist Rochas flats in striking mirrored leather.
Happy shopping! X
