New Balance shoes – Mango leather jacket – Bleu Rod Beattie dress – Quay sunglasses – home-made velvet choker

Alex and I spent the day exploring the city, especially the neighbourhood called Le Marais which is filled with amazing vintage shops, cute little cafe’s and great restaurants. Definitely worth a visit! For this look I am actually wearing a beach cover-up from Bleu Rod Beattie as a dress (talk about how to use one item two ways!) My leather jacket is from Mango, for a day of sightseeing I need super comfy shoes and these New Balances are my go to! I topped it off with my classic flap from Channel, Quay sunglasses and a home-made velvet choker.

Earrings Susanne Friis Bjørner – New Balance shoes – Lindex coat – Max Mara fur collar – Quay sunglasses

Every time we travel I try my best to explore as much as possible and Paris was no exception, we spend our last day at Chataux de Versailles. I have been here once before but, loved getting the full day to really explore the palace itself and the equally impressive gardens and surrounding smaller palaces.

I am wearing my favorite Susanne Friis Bjørner earrings, these are so simple and dainty and go with everything in my wardrobe so perfectly. Get yours here!

Alex and I have this running joke about renting the tackiest transport we can find (think Segways, quads, el-scooters ++) and the moment we realized they did golf carts at Versailles we were all in. In all honesty thought, it’s not the worst tip if you are going to Versailles to rent one, it lets you see so much more of the area around the palace. While on our little golf cart sightseeing we spotted this gorgeous little gazebo outside of Marie Antoinette’s smaller palace, these photos are coming soon.

I have such a big backlog of photos from the past few weeks, and editing them all is taking some time, but trust me they are coming. So stay tuned. Have a happy Sunday everyone!

Here’s some photos from a morning spent strolling around the neighbourhood where we stayed in Paris called Palais Royal. There is something about these gorgeous old world white buildings that gets me every time. And I caught myself wanting to move here more than once on our weekend trip! Who knows? Maybe one day.

For this look, I went with my go-to white belted coat and added a fur collar from Max Mara (get it here and here). I love any collar, it adds the perfect amount of drama and elevates the look! I went with black jeans and a striped top and kept my sunglasses (get them here), shoes and handbag simple too. I actually ended up changed sunnies, midway which pair do you like best?

Leather jacket, Mango – handbag, Chanel – Sunglasses, Quay – Dress, Bleu Rod Beattie – Choker, homemade  – Sneakers, New Balance.

As you know, any all black look is winner in my book. You would probably be surprised to know that this wonderful dress is a beach cover-up doubling as the perfect sightseeing dress for a day spent discovering Paris. I paired it with my wardrobe go-to leather jacket, Chanel classic flap and for a change I am wearing sneakers (life saver for a day of strolling). Hope this way of wearing one piece two ways inspired you to try something from your wardrobe someway new.

Hello Everyone!
This past month of my life has been such a world whim, I am happy to say that on Monday this week I moved to live in… NYC! I am beyond excited and so happy for this new adventure. What else is new? Well Alex and I went to Paris this past weekend and it was such an unbelievable trip. We walked through beautiful neighbourhoods, visited the Louvre and Chateau de Versailles and ate some amazing food. All in all it was a dream trip, and despite the week before being snowy and windy in Paris we got clear skies and for the most part sun!

I wanted to include some of the photos we shot while walking through Jardin de Tuileries and the Louvre. Here I am wearing my go-to leather jacket from mango and a DIY’ed velvet choker. I am also wearing one of my Susanne Friis Bjørner earrings, and to be honest guys I have been wearing my pieces NON STOP since I got them and I am so excited to show you more of their absolutely beautiful jewellry pieces.

See more Susanne Friis Bjørner here.

Happy Saturday everyone!

This look is all about staple pieces I can’t get enough of! This Mango leather jacket is silky soft and fits perfectly + this 3/4 sleeve white t-shirt is both super comfy and works with everything else in my wardrobe (duh, it’s a plain white t). This slinky beige/nude skirt is from Missguided and again, jersey so it’s beyond comfy. As for the accessories, I added my go-to classic flap from Chanel and my mirrored Quay sunglasses + a leather pair of boots.

How to grow your Instagram part 2

February 18, 2016
Screen Shot 2016-02-18 at 15.51.02

Hi Guys!
Hope your week has been great so far! I am so excited to be posting another Blog Better post, which is all about how you can become a better blogger. This is part 2 of my “how to grow your Instagram”, if you haven’t read part one – click here! Since the first post, I thought of some other good tips to have in mind and decided to write a part 2.  For fashion bloggers, Instagram is everything. It is a great representation of your audience, and it’s the perfect channel to grow your readership and introduce new people to your amazing blog. Down below are some of my tips:

1. Building Fame: is a digital marketing agency that helps you engage with people similar to your profile, and people who follow similar people like you. This is a service, by a team who works on your account personally and help you truly engage with people who would love your feed! It’s such a great way to really reach people who would love your content! Right now all of you guys can get -30% off a membership by using code: FCINSTA2016, Most of their portfolio are fashion bloggers, designers and entrepreneurs. Check out their service here.

2. Frequency: Growing fast and building a following on social media is a lot about frequency, why would someone want to follow you if your last post was 35 weeks ago? There is no point in following profiles who won’t post regularly, so If you want to grow stay consistent. I find that it helps to have an idea of how many posts you want to do every week, some fashion bloggers posts as many times as 3-6 per day, for me this is a bit much, but I do try to upload a new photo to Instagram every day. This is really up to you, find a balance and something that works for you and your audience.

3. VSCO/editing: I love me a good feed, and one tip to achieve that envy worthy Instafeed is by using the same, or roughly the same filter on every photo. Doing this over time gives your Instagram a certain look, and it becomes much more cohesive and well thoughout. Lately I’m loving C1-C2-C3 and the S1-S2-S3 on VSCO!

Let me know if you have some other tips, or comment down below if you end up using any of these #Instagram tips and tricks.

Hi Guys,

This look is definately something a little bit different than my usual look, but lately I have been so draw to the whole sport lux style. I got this super cool and comfy Adidas track jacket from Alex for Valentines, hey #bestboyfriend. And I decided to pair it with something very unexpected, so I went with a pair of black culottes pants and a pair of black mules and a faux leather bucket bag.
