This week’s OOTDS (outfit of the day) – 27 September 2020

Happy Sunday! More mixed weather for us this past week in Copenhagen. From cool to hot, cold misty and foggy, torrential rain with cloudbursts and then back to summertime temperatures today! Certainly keeps it interesting… I’ve had fun this week making some new outfit combinations from my wardrobe – always good to do something a little out of your comfort zone!

And in skinnydipping-seaswimming news, the current sea temp is 16c/60f. And the tea afterwards is always hot!

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 super Sunday!

LLAP! May the Danish hygge be with you! Hugs!

This week’s OOTDS (outfit of the day) – 20 September 2020

Happy Sunday! Crazy weather this week here in wonderful Copenhagen…started off with a mini heatwave where I was able to wear my summer dresses and sandals. Then autumn came back full force mid-week and I needed my gloves, earmuffs, warm coat and wooly scarf for biking down to the sea for my morning skinny dips! The sea temp is currently 15c/59f. Come on in, it’s refreshing (remember to pack a yummy picnic breakfast)!

This week’s OOTDs (outfit of the day), 13 September 2020

Happy Sunday! I’m not quite sure where this past week went – it seemed to pass in a flash – but autumn is very definitely in the air and I’ve looked out my gloves/earmuffs for biking down to the sea for my morning skinny dips! The sea temp is currently 16c/60f, air temp has been lower ⚓ (When I was a Girl Guide in Scotland our motto was “be prepared”, something to live by!) Let’s see those outfits!

Autumn is here!
Morning seaswim, best start to the day!

VISITING MUM IN EDINBURGH PLUS This week’s OOTDs (outfit of the day), 5 September 2020

Happy Saturday! What an absolutely fantastic week it has been – I was finally able to be together with my dear old Mum in Edinburgh, Scotland! As many of you know, I haven’t seen Mum (or my dear big brother and sweetest sister-in-law) since December 2019 due to the Lockdown travel restrictions around the world. There was a flight this week from Copenhagen so I jumped at the chance to fly over (thanks to my daily routines I could book and pack at a moment’s notice without any stress) and it was so wonderful to “see” my Mum in the flesh. Mum is 85 years old (she turned 85 in May this year) and always wears her nice clothes (unless she’s out gardening, of course), a piece of jewelry, a skoosh of perfume, etc. (I cut a couple of inches off her hair for her just before I took this photo of us because she’s been unable to get to the hairdressers and she felt her hair was dragging down her energy.) Doesn’t she look terrific, despite being confined to her house for six months?

We were able to do a spot of shopping in the city, lots of walking and had some lovely meals. Tapas with wine, haggis in a gastro pub. A takeaway from our local chip shop, washed down with a bottle of champagne which I had sent Mum for her birthday, and which she wanted to drink with me when we were finally reunited! But best of all was just being able to sit together in the evening, watching TV and chatting.

Plus drinking a gin or two (Mum’s favourite tipple)! Every day is the special occasion – make sure enjoy it to the full!! 💖

But on with the outfits!

Sea temp for our morning skinny-dip seaswims is currently 18c/64d

This week’s OOTDs (outfit of the day), 30 August 2020

Happy Sunday! We had a very mixed week weatherwise here in Copenhagen…from torrential rain to baking sun. So, all in all, our typical Danish summer! And how do we usually cope? By layering and making sure that we always carry our waterproofs or an umbrella. You know what we say here, there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing… Here come this week’s outfits and bathing photos…

This week’s OOTDs (outfit of the day), 23 August 2020

Happy Sunday from the south-coast of Sweden where we are spending the weekend at our cabin! It’s lovely to have a couple of days in the slow lane, taking a dip in the sea before breakfast, enjoying reading our books and enjoying the company of our neighbours’ cat (who “adopted” us when we bought the cabin eight years ago). Life is good!

Last week’s Danish heatwave continued into this week, as you will see from my OOTDs this week, but we finally got some much needed rain on Wednesday and Thursday. Phew!

Great weather for ducks!

But on with this week’s OOTDs!

This week’s OOTDs (outfit of the day), 16 August 2020

Well, I can sum up this week’s Danish weather in one word. Hot! The heatwave continues here in Copenhagen and I have been pulling out all the stops and wearing the kind of outfits I’d usually wear while on holiday on the French Riviera or on a Greek island. It feels like we are on vacation! Today was a stifling 32c/89f. We don’t have airconditioning so are keeping cool with cold drinks, fans and (one of my favourite tricks which I learned from my Basque friend, Joxerramon) sleeping under a wet towel! Certainly makes for a restful night. Anyway, on with this weeks OOTDs!

This week’s OOTDs (outfit of the day), 9 August 2020

Gosh, what a marvelous week we have had weatherwise! Temperatures have been climbing since Monday and on Friday we hit the 30s (30c = 86f) which, for us, is a heatwave. So I’ve been enjoying my morning coffee in the shade in the garden, swimming in the sea every morning and keeping my outfits very light…

I use the Dressing Your Truth system for my capsule wardrobe (my energy type is 1/4). And I use the Flylady system to keep me organised – one of my simple daily habits is choosing my outfit the day before. I check my diary/the weather forecast to see what lies ahead, and choose a suitable outfit (I hang my outfit on a hook on the back of our bedroom door). No stress in the morning and I’m ready to enjoy whatever the day brings!

Have a super Sunday – hope you’re keeping cool out there!

This week’s OOTDs (outfit of the day), 2 August 2020

Happy Sunday, dear readers! My DDH (dear Danish hubby) and I managed a few days away together at our cabin on the south coast of Sweden this week and had the most terrific weather. Sunshine AND heat, woo hoo! Beautiful sunsets, alfresco meals and icecream plus, of course, visits from our neighbours’ cat!

I always pack very simply when we go to our cabin: a few key pieces which can be mixed and matched. I use the Dressing Your Truth system for my capsule wardrobe (my energy type is 1/4) and it makes it very simple to make outfits, whatever the weather. I keep quite a few basics at the cabin (makeup/hair products, underwear, a few old pieces of clothing such as jeans, tops, sweaters, swimming and sports gear, sneakers and flip flops) which saves me bringing things back and forwards. But on with this week’s outfits!

The beach at our Swedish cabin where I enjoy morning, afternoon and evening swims!

Have a super Sunday, wherever you are in the world!

LLAP! May the Danish hygge be with you! Hugs!

This week’s OOTDs (outfit of the day), 26 July 2020

Happy Sunday morning! It’s been another week of mixed summer weather here in Copenhagen (we often experience all four seasons in the space of an afternoon) with rather a lot of rain! ☔☔☔

Good weather for ducks!

But, hey ho, the sun HAS been shining and the temperatures HAVE been mild, so I have made an effort to wear more dresses this week, woo hoo! Just to recap, I use the Dressing Your Truth system for my capsule wardrobe and my energy type is 1/4. In the summer I like to wear dresses and jumpsuits: they are a nice easy “all in one” option. I’m really not a fan of skirts – I can’t remember the last time I wore one – and keep only one or two basic ones in wardrobe. Jumpsuits are a great option for me as they are so great for cycling and moving around!
