Sneaker Chic

IMG_8691 Tonight I had all of my architecture friends from my home university over for a dinner party at my kollegium, and we had a great time! We made some delicious food, played foosball, and wandered around the Figure 8 building afterwards. I was doing laundry earlier and didn't really have any clean pants to wear, so I opted for a skirt for the occasion. I wanted to wear my new fuzzy number, so I kept the rest of my top half simple with a striped tee from the flea market and a cool statement necklace.

I promised you guys a while back that I would show you an example of the way Danish girls dress up for an event. I've noticed that an oversized sweater with a bodycon and a pair of sneakers is their fancy outfit of choice, and I tried to wear something similar with this look. I love the ease of an outfit like this because you're not teetering in a heeled boot or anything while you cook or entertain. You also overall just give off a more laid back vibe and can enjoy the party without worrying about having sore feet!

Would you try out this style? I'd love to know! x. Paige

Eye on the City

IMG_6462 I wore this on my first day of class in Copenhagen on Friday! I am studying at the Danish Institute for Study Abroad, so all of my teachers speak English, but they are all Danish or from other European countries. When I picked up this graphic print dress before my trip, I couldn't wait to wear it with black trainers and a leather jacket, and thought today would be the perfect chance to wear it! Denmark is much warmer than I expected however, so I threw on an cropped black oxford instead. This dress was a nice cool choice considering it was pretty hot navigating to all of my classes, and none of the rooms have air conditioning. I don't mind though because they all have such great natural daylighting, especially my new architecture studio! Which also has a killer view. I could go on…

I love being a city-goer but navigating around has proved to be quite challenging for me. I am not used to taking complicated public transportation and am only used to riding the city bus to school in California. Yesterday I actually got pretty lost, but I think it is good for me to learn how to find my way around so that I can become more acquainted with Copenhagen and also relate my findings to my new urban design classes.

P.S. Sorry for the lack of posting regularly...the wi-fi in my room is really unreliable but I am working on getting it fixed. I do however post on Instagram when I get service in the city, so keep up with me there @punkrockparti!

Overalls + Trainers

Today was the first day that I felt I blended in a bit while biking around on the streets of Amager and Copenhagen. I noticed a few days ago that shorts are not very typical or accepted to wear in the city for whatever reason. Luckily though, I have spotted lots of overalls in both the stores and on the streets, so I figured I could get away with wearing my bleached pair. I'm also fully embracing the fact that Danes wear running shoes with literally anything, even very nice work attire. I am so glad I picked up this pair at Urban Outfitters before I left. They were only 19 bucks and go with everything, but I love that the pop of neon keeps them from being too basic! IMG_6416

Tomorrow is my first day of class and I think I am going to take it another step by wearing a dress with trainers! Today I biked into the city from my apartment, about 25 minutes, to map out where all of my classes are so I am prepared for tomorrow. Unfortunately the chain popped on my bike on the way in and I need to fix it, but I will just take the metro instead! Other than that, biking is so fun and easy here. I am loving it!

Thanks for reading! I'll see you tomorrow, x. Paige
