First skirt outfit in 2013

Within the last 48 hours the weather has changed dramatically in Denmark. Going from minus 15 degrees Celcius to plus 10! Of course I had to take advantage of this by wearing a skirt.

Another new top from CC

It's hard to see but I'm wearing teal tights, trying to match the colours of the top. What I'm not showing is, that I'm wearing bicycle shorts underneath the skirt

The jewellery

It was not so easy to find jewellery for this outfit. I guess I could have worn my teal and turquoise rings too - well, maybe next time!

Badly in need of a re-colouring of my hair!

My days are crazy busy at the moment - so I have to cut this post short. Hopefully the weather stays fine (above freezing!), so that I don't have to stuff myself with extra layers, making me feel like a teddy bear!

Hope to be posting again soon - take care everyone!

Three work outfits

Last week I started as an intern, and boy was that a dressing challenge. Not because of the place, but because of the weather! It was well below freezing and very windy. At the same time I found myself waiting 15-20 min. several times, for buses and trains.

Here's Wednesday's outfit:

Everything's old but the scarf

Under the jeggings I'm wearing skiing leggings, and two pairs of socks in my booties. The scarf is an impulse buy at half price. It also came in a green version, but by the time I got around to go sales shopping it was sold out.

The pink scarf turned out to be a more sensible purchase than the green would have been. I have far more pink and red items in my closet than green.

On Thursday I wore my favorite jeans (that apparently make me look taller) with another sale item, a top from CC where I also buy most of my dresses from.

New top with great fit and lovely colours

It looks alright from the back too, and this time I remembered to pull down the top on the back before taking photos!

I even remembered to put on a few bangles, and a large ring. I'm really proud of myself!

Now with jewellery!

Friday I wore my favorite old knit dress - sparkly black, with another new silk scarf. The fabric of the scarf was strangely stiff, although it was made of silk. I'll have to wash it and see if it's been treated with something.

Very old dress, even older boots - and A BRACELET

In the summer 2011 I wrote about Monies, a Danish Jewellery company that I'm very fascinated by. Since then I've been searching several times every week for the jewellery, second hand, as I can't afford retail prices at the moment.

Earlier this month luck was on my side, and I got a nice large shell decorated bangle. I love the shine and the colour, and the size of course!

I have another photo showing the lovely bangle, and the new silk devorée scarf.

Notice the bangle again?

To show you why I love this dress so much, see the photo from behind. This dress is not only comfortable and flattering but also warm, easy to wash and dry, and doesn't wrinkle. In addition to that it cost around £10 - or $15. How much more can one ask of a dress?

Nothing better than knit in winter

Tomorrow is Monday, and I'm looking forward to join a large group of gorgeous ladies at Patti's Visible Monday party over at the Not Dead Yet Style Blog. I can only recommend taking a look, and enjoy all the creativity and beauty!

I hope I'll have more time for blogging this week - take care everyone and see you soon!

Return of the middleaged student!

Thank you everyone for all the lovely comments, and for checking in on me! 

All though I've been extremely busy, I've also had some great times. In November my friend at school, Mette, and I decided to do the exam project alone, as a 2 person group.

The project was meant for 4 or 5 person groups. That meant double work load - but also that we controlled everything, and didn't have to wait for others.

Then last week we presented it, and got our grades. I'm happy to say that all our hard work paid off as we got a 12 which is the highest possible grade!

Now we're planning to continue studying together, going for a bachelor degree in communication design. But that's not until after the summer holidays.

This week I started at my best friend's company, as an intern. She and her husband has been in the IT business for some years now, and haven't had the time to update their website - just the job for me!

So, now I'm redesigning while I'm getting to know Joomla. If things turn out the way I hope, this blog will most likely continue as a Joomla website after our summer exam.

Enough talk, here's the first photo:

Second day at work, in new top!

Last Friday my already mentioned BFF and I went out to get me a price for top grades which resulted in purchasing this gorgeous top.

It's from the Danish brand Eva & Claudi, and the flowers are all Helloborus, a favorite of mine. I love how the zipper opens at both ends!

When do I learn to pull down my tops in the back?

The weather has been very cold, well below freezing, with a nasty wind. It feels like I've tried every trick in the book to keep warm, and nothing is good enough. Tomorrow I'll be wearing a dress, if I survive you'll see the photos later!

Can you believe I forgot jewellery?

Now I'll go and join Patti and her guests at Not Dead Yet Style's stylish Visible Monday party. My Mondays have been so boring lately - so I'm really looking forward to seeing everybody!

Have a great week everyone, and see you soon again
