Hello, summer and Hello, everyone! One thing I love about this summer season is the cheerful mood that’s around every corner in the city. There are people everywhere, cafés are popped up and so many outdoor activities at the moment. Despite the unpredictable weather this year, I still feel excited about this summer holidays. Axel and I have no plans for travelling, but instead, we will be camping in different places here in Denmark. I’m looking forward, as there are so many attractive cities in this country that I would like to see and get to know.
Aalborg is such a beautiful city that is full of charming spots. You already know from this post , that I love biking and taking walks. I feel like life is all good when I am on top of my bike biking around discovering the city’s neighbourhood.
On this day, I spent the rest of the afternoon and evening in a quiet spot that I found a few kilometres away from the city centre. It was a perfect place and all I what I needed. I might sound like a loner, but I do value and enjoy to have peaceful moments all by myself. It’s a great way for me to breathe and reflect. Normally, my days are full of a long to do list and many worries. So, these quiet moments allow me to rest my mind with no interruptions. I tend to feel recharged both mentally and emotionally.
For my outfit, I decided to wear shades of blue. I added more colour by using this bandana as a neck scarf and these Zara loafers that I got from the short trip to Gothenburg, Sweden.
Hope you like these pictures that I shot myself.
Thank you for reading, and talk to you super soon, again.
Happy Monday and great week, ahead!

Happy Monday everyone! The weather in Gothenburg, during the one day trip with Stena Danica, was incredible. Helena and I decided to check out from our Airbnb early to hit the streets. As a one day tourists, we wanted to explore the city and also create time for some shopping before sailing back to Denmark. Usually, I travel with Axel and always rely on him as a guide when looking for places to discover. This time was different. My friend had never been to Gothenburg before, and I had to be her guide. I opted to show her some of my favorite places that I like to re-visit, especially on a short trip like this. These areas are situated right in the city center, and it is only a walking distance, which made it stress-free to get around.
Talking about shopping, I can’t imagine a trip to Gothenburg without stopping at ZARA and Mango. They both had a huge summer sale, and we both went crazy with shopping. Fell in love with a few pieces that I got and can’t wait to show you soon. We rounded up the day with a much-needed coffee break after walking for several hours.
Packing as a one day tourists was super easy. I’m the kind of person who can’t travel light, and no matter how much I try. I always end up bringing unnecessary stuff that I end up not using. For this trip, I knew I wanted an outfit that was comfortable and would make it easy for me to walk from one corner to the other. Denim will always be an essential in my closet as it can go with everything. My choice of shoes was these white slip-on that was the most comfortable pair to wear for such a long walking day.
Thank you for reading! Hope you will have a great week ahead.
During my last visit in Gothenburg, Sweden, it was so sunny, windy and cold. When I was packing for the trip, I knew I wanted to bring this pleated skirt with me. Though, I was not sure how to style it, as I find it tricky to pull off with pleats. I decided to pair it with a red top and sneakers and turned out to be a perfect and comfortable outfit to run around in town. Two days later, because the skirt has a lot of movement and the silver shine on it, I paired it with a white long-sleeved blouse that has the cutest romantic ruffles on the neck and the around the sleeves. These Zara velvet boots added some color to the outfit.
If you are planning to invest in a pleated skirt, go ahead and do it. There are so many ways to pair this flirty and sophisticated piece. For instance, you can pair it with a tee and a pair sneaker for a more casual look. If you want a more edgy look and vibe, throw on a black leather jacket and boots. A silk cami top, heeled sandals, a small purse all paired together with the skirt are suitable for a night-out look. What do you think?
Are you interested in wearing the pleated skirt? I’m curious to know how you style it.
PS: I am traveling to Gothenburg this Thursday for a day, and I’m super excited.
As always, Thank you so much for reading.

Aahhhh!!! Another blogger event that I attended last week. I am always excited whenever I get invited to this kind of events. While it is fun to be part of, they give me the opportunity to build a relationship with brands, get to know other bloggers, and expand my network. I also find it an excellent way to create awareness for my little blog.
For this particular event, I got to discover Carre Jewellery brand which has a beautiful and amazing collection on jewellery. In my opinion, some of the jewellery has an antique touch with fine-looking coloured stone. I’m the type of woman who likes minimal jewellery, but I must admit that I fell in love with their collection. The small details are a perfect finish to each piece, which makes them so unique and feminine. The great thing about Carré Jewellery is that they do not limit you. You can play around and create different looks. You can also mix and match for a more sophisticated look that can suit any personality.
It was a great evening and event filled with great moments. Karma Sushi delivered top quality sushi. My most favourite are the Karma Crunch and the Sizzling Tuna that tasted so amazing.
For my outfit, I opted for this flowy and asymmetrical off-shoulder dress with florals. I am obsessed with the fact that it exposes my shoulders and it comes with a belt to cinch my waist. Alternately, I can wear it without the belt and use it as a scarf or as an accessory for by handbag, which I can’t wait to try.
Thank you, Aalborg Bloggers x Carre Jewellery for a great event and evening.
And, Thank you for reading my post. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
Talk to you super soon
