OOTDS (outfit of the day) and seaswimming in ice 3 March 2021

Happy Wednesday! A round up of my outfits of the day from last week (I use the Dressing Your Truth colour system, more info at the end of this post) plus some fun seaswim photos! Still very cold here in Copenhagen but there are signs of new life all around…1 March signals the official start of spring here in Denmark!

Snowdrops (“vintergΓ¦k“) and erantis from our garden…the first signs of spring!

Red and white stripes and dots!
Fluffy aqua sweater, a favourite colour of mine
Blue and white stripes, red lips and nails for a pop of colour!
Pink and blue gingham check
Yellow stripes on a grey day – I like to make my own sunshine!
Fluffy winter white sweater and navy polka dots
Chocolate brown sweater and chocolate brown leather trousers

In Danish weather news, it’s been so cold that many of our canals and harbours have frozen over. Recognise this place? Nyhavn harbour, in Copenhagen city. You may remember I made a video there, when my friend Carol Tuttle of Dressing Your Truth came to visit a couple of years ago!

If you saw my post from last week you’ll know that the sea also froze over – a rare occurrence! It only happens every three or four years…

But the Big Freeze was quickly followed by The Big Thaw, so we have been swimming in slushice! The sea became a slow moving mass of ice chunks and slush.

Mind your step as you walk into the sea!
Anyone need some ice?!

NB: A warning though that, yes, this may look fun, but winterbathing/icebathing can be dangerous. The ice is sharp and you don’t notice because you are numb from the cold. My Bestie, Vibeke, had a few bleeding knuckles afterwards and a couple of other swimmers had cuts on their backs. We’ve been doing this for almost 10 years and never take risks: safety first!

Baby, it’s cold outside! But the colder the water, the bigger the smiles!

If you’re looking for a capsule wardrobe system, I can thoroughly recommend the Dressing Your Truth system (there is a free course on the website). Your best colours and styles are determined by your facial features/inner energy (my primary energy type is 1 with a secondary energy of 4). It has been lifechanging for me and makes getting dressed so easy! (I’ve made several YouTube videos about my wardrobe, see below.) I use the Flylady system to keep me organised and my daily routine includes choosing my outfit a day in advance (I check my diary/weather forecast to see what’s ahead). I hang my outfit on a hook on the back of our bedroom door and am ready to go the moment my feet hit the floor the next morning. I love having a morning routine which sets me up for a good day!

Have a fabulous Wednesday! Hope there are signs of spring where you are!
