The Week in Squares

I stated on here before that I wasn't a fan of Instagram-recap blog posts, but the first one I posted was pretty well received, so I thought I would try it again! I also didn't want to leave you guys hanging too too long while I am away traveling. If you already follow me on Instagram, I will try to elaborate a little more about each square photo so you get some new deets as well! insta recap 1

// My friends took me to this amazing thrift store, Episode, one block over from our school on Friday and holy-mother-of-vintage was it glorious. A little over-priced, granted, but fun for browsing and future purchases.

// I've found a coffee shop near school called Cafe Paludan that reminds me of my favorite one back in California. It also has a sense of coziness that I love, which reminded me of the Danish phrase "hygge". It's a little long to describe, so click the italics if you want to learn more!

// The harness boots I picked up in Sweden, more on those in this style post!

// In August we celebrated the 1 year birthday of this blog, and I recapped the year with my favorite posts. Thank you to all the readers + followers of Punkrockparti!!

insta recap 2

// Quick Monday #OOTD, wearing an H&M top from the Fashion Hunters Flea Market in Copenhagen, and a geometric necklace from Macy's.

// While biking to Cafe Paludan, I rode past the plaza known as Frue Plads, where there was an orange balloon release! I'm not sure what the reason was, but it was a picture perfect moment.

// On a day with no class, my friend Elsa and I biked to check out Tietgen Kollegiet which is student housing. We ended up getting caught in the rain, but afterwards the sun came out and it was beautiful!

// A shot from the day I spent in Malmö with Elsa and Sheila. It was a fun little excursion and one of the best parts was stopping in the design stores and comparing the Danish and Swedish aesthetics.

Thanks for reading, + hope you enjoyed! What are you instagramming lately? x. Paige

p.s. Will be back from my trip tomorrow and have so much to share! Can't wait, see you then!

Utilitarian Layering in Malmö

IMG_7634 At 10 AM this morning my friends and I hopped on a train to hang out in Malmö for the day! Sweden is only an inexpensive 25 minute train ride from my apartment, and with a free day to explore we figured why not? Since being gone for an entire day necessitates being prepared for anything, I decided to work with layering a dress, tank top, tights, and a rain jacket. I think the colorful tank top kept the look from being too basic. Although this coat is your pretty standard black rain jacket, I love that it is cinched at the waist. It still gives me a shape and feels feminine!

My friends Elsa, Sheila, and I had a fun adventure today! Malmö is a bit smaller than I expected, but we got to see the famous Turning Torso building, and a few other cool finds like this bridge in the harbor. I thought you might like to see my lovely friends and what they were wearing as well! Aren't they the cutest? They are the best for always putting up with my outfit documentation.
