Want Wear Need Read in September

Want wear need read September

Want – Even though my birthday was last month, I still have a few things left on my wishlist. I recently came across this beautiful snow globe which would be perfect for my office space. I simply love them, and a few years back we always bought a snow globe for our daughter, when we visited a new place. I found some really cute ones – I’m trying to decide between the more winter inspired collection or the zen collection.

Wear – I would love to wear these new pants to yoga – or simply at home after some television yoga.To top it off, I would add the cool grey sweater by Rebecca Minkoff. I’m trying to get back in the routine and would love for my daughter to join me on the mat. Right now I’m looking for a class for both of us.

Need – I really need a new bag. My everyday bag has seen better days. I’m on the lookout for something classic and black. I need a medium size bag for the stuff I carry around on a normal day. I’m trying to cut down on the stuff that I carry around in my bag – but that’s a whole other story. I’ve been looking at Rebecca Minkoff’s Regan Satchel Tote online, but I want to feel and have a look in the store before buying it – just to make sure.

Read – I’ve been wanting to read Milk and Honey all summer. Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. Milk and Honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.

Too cool for school – boy edition

Too cool for school - boy

What about your boy – is he too cool for school when it comes to clothes? Last Sunday I shoved you what I would buy for my soon to be teenage girl right now. I love this season, because if you ask me there’s nothing better than to curl up in some comfy clothes and just enjoy the beautiful weather. I absolutely love fall – to me it’s the most beautiful time of the year.

My son is the quite opposite of my daughter – he’s been very aware and direct when it comes to clothes ever since he was little. He loves cool clothes – and this summer he wanted to look like dad when he had the chance. So I figured, why not buy a blue shirt for him as well. He’ll love it, and I’ll enjoy watching my hubby and his mini-me walking around.

I’ll add a few more posts about what I’ll end up buying this season – but this one will focus on items from Zara. I like the quality (it’s not half bad), it’s rather cheap and they’ve got some pretty cool items each season. I’ll add items from more expensive Danish brands as well, and I love going on a clothes hunt in order to find cool clothes for the little guy.

Shopping list:
Bag with a splash of paint
Blue shirt (Like father like son)
Black scarf
Basic fall/winter jacket
Cool rock shoes
Relaxing black pants
Grey sweater

by Lassen to focus on the hallway – AW2017 news

I’m thrilled to see the AW2017 news from by Lassen. I love the fact that they’ve focused on functional design for the hallway. Most often it’s the first room people see, when they visit you – and I know ours has been filled with shoes, raincoats and what have you for way too long.

And being the design geek that I am, I’m even more thrilled about the fact that they’ve taken us back to where it all started, namely with the burnished copper Kubus candleholder, just like the first one designed in the 1960s by Mogens Lassen. That’s fantastic news, if you ask me. Now I’ll just have to come up with a solid plan in order for my husband to wrap his head around the fact that I need yet another Kubus candleholder.

HAY designs for IKEA

YPPERLIG HAY designs for IKEA

I’m sure you’re not surprised to find out that I’m pretty excited about IKEAs collaboration with HAY. I’ll be first in line to get my hands on some of the items, that’s for sure. I’ve collected a (tiny – I wish) shopping list already. Of course, I’ll have to see the YPPERLIG collection irl before making a final decision. However, I’m pretty enthusiastic about what I’ve seen so far. So I’ll show you what’s on my list – as long as you don’t go and buy all of the stuff before me 😉

Too cool for school – Girl clothes edition

Today, I want to share some cool back to school clothes with you. This post will only focus on clothes for girls – in this case my tween girl. I’ll then return with a boy edition in a few days. So, this back to school thing… well we’ve been hit by the “back to school craziness” big time this year. We’ve had way too much to take care of in the past two weeks, with our boy participating in a new television show for kids (which by the way was a fantastic experience – but more about that later, when they are done filming the show) and meetings. Our girl is now on 5th grade ans she’s loving every minute of it – she’s learning the German language now. She’s turning into a real teen before our very eyes, and clothes is very much a part of her transformation. Could someone please turn back time?

She’s much more into having “the right clothes” than she’s ever been. She knows what she wants, and it’s so funny listening to her talk about wanting “blogger glasses” and so on. I’ve made a collage of some of the clothes from Zara, which is currently on her wishlist.

Birthday Girl coming up…

Birthday Girl wishes

August is full of birthdays in my family. But first of all, I hope you’ve had an amazing summer. As you can see, I didn’t blog during my vacation, so I’m ready to share some awesome inspiration with you here again. In short, despite the terrible weather here in Denmark, my summer vacation wasn’t that bad. We mostly stayed here in Denmark, but also enjoyed a few days in lovely Gothenburg in Sweden. For the first time in 5 years, we didn’t re-book Svendborg/Christiansminde for the summer of 2018. Hopefully, we’ll travel through Europe next year, and explore some beautiful cities along the way. I’ll let you know, when we start planning the trip.

I’ve got a birthday coming up this month and in order to help some desperate souls out there, I’ve collected a few items for inspiration. You can also check out my Pinterest board for more wishes.

Items from my wishlist:
#1 Croissant necklace from Jukserei
#2 This cool After This We’re Getting Pizza yoga mat
#3 Sofie Schnoor Lace Scarf in cameo rose
#4 Sofie Schnoor Boot Classic
#5 Shimmer.Shine from Kevin Murphy
#6 Miss Jagger Earrings from Vera Vega
#7 The No Mess Waffle
