Spring in Copenhagen

Spending easter break in Copenhagen was a wonderful experience. Not only was it much warmer than Oslo, it was a feast for the eyes and the senses. As you might have guessed, I love to travel. It gives me new energy and inspiration in a whirlwind world. Dont miss out on the beautiful castles and mansions outside of the city. Only ten minutes away by train lies lovely Charlottenlund.

There is always people enjoying the sun at the Rådhusplassen. Sit in the sun, listen to music and watch people walk on by.

Wearing: Trench from Lindex, tights H&M, Shoes of ebay, Scarf pashmina and Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag. When sighsteeing, I like to be both comfortable and stylish. I dont walk for hours and hours in high heels, because then I know I will have to go back and change. Worth seeing is Tivoli, shopping at Strøget, Charlottenlund, the little Mermaid (the statue bye the sea), the round tower. Eat at ChitChat and Søren K.

And visit all the small vintage and secondhandshops in the city. Glam in Silkegade has beautiful party dresses and lots of accessories.

TimesUp is more exclusive and has vintage pieces from YSL, Balenciaga and Christian Dior. A little more expensive, but great items, so a must see. I also visited Wasteland, The Second Way and Carmen and Fantasio. Read my Norwegian post at minmote. Inspite of all the lovely shops, I did not score that much vintageitems, due to the fact that a lot of the dresses were so big in size. But I managed to grab some bracelets and a jacket. After that we went shopping at Strøget and I manged to pick up these two pairs of shoes from Aldo.

I also recomend a visit to the shoppingcenters Magasinet and Illum to check out the Danish designers, Holly Golightly and Marc Jacobs. What I love about this city is that most shops are in walking distance, so you just put on your best shoes and start the adventure.

Have a great weekend!

I have decided to post here once or twice a week for now. You will see all of my new posts at minmote, which is updated every day. Be sure to check it out here. Yesterday I went to a birthday dinner at my favorite restaurant in Oslo, Dinner. It was a lot of fun and really good food. Easter break is coming up and it is quite in the city, which is wonderful for a change. I look forward to relaxing, going to the movies and meeting up with friends. Hope you are having a wonderful sunday. PS: Thanks to lovely blogger Vicen for giving me the Look 10 Award!
