This is something I go through every fashion week…I worry about what to wear, panic I don’t look as ‘adventurous’ as everyone else, wear something to fit in and then end up changing into my most basic, easy, comfy outfit where I feel like myself and say ‘who cares?’.
This was one of those days in Copenhagen. I didn’t get my photo taken outside any shows, but I felt like myself. I still love everything I packed for my trip but I’ve definitely moved on from ‘dressing for the cameras’.
This shirt is an old-timer now, a favourite of a few fashion friends (including Sarah of Little Spree) and I rarely go away without it – it looks great with denim shorts a or swimsuit on holiday too.
And the skirt was an online buy from Madewell (and I wasn’t hit with a customs bill!) – yes, Madewell of my favourite khaki trousers fame. For the evening, I’ll probably keep this look and just change into the khaki trousers as the temperature cools down.
I was tempted to keep the outfit tonal here, but I actually think the pop of colour on the bag is what makes this look.
I think, once again, Copenhagen has proved to be the best European citybreak.
The food, the people, the short flight (despite BA complications!) – and actually this Fashion Week was one of my favourites. The brands were relevant to me, the settings were beautiful and it was so much better organised – and I might be swapping it for London in the future.
