Some scarves I have picked up from various places while on my trip.
I think scarves can make an outfit. It is like a statement necklace. You can spice it up with a scarf.
Whats your favourite way to wear them?
These two are gorgeous and were cheap from Primark. I picked up both variations as I know I will wear them a lot! Florals have become a staple for me.

This may seem kind of stalkerish but I have been so impressed with the style the Danish women have. Tweens here dress like Kristen Stewart and older teens/women dress very similar to this woman pictured.
This woman was a Mum waiting at the train station and I thought it was an easy oppurtunity to snap a picture (I hope this is ok).
These Harem style pants are popular here and people aren't just wearing black either. They come in florals and other patterns too.
I am going to try make this a fashion segment while I am on holiday and when I can snap a picture of someone stylish I will post it.
What do you think of the Danish fashion? Does this woman inspire you? Maybe this is the same way women are dressing in your country. Let me know.

At the moment I am on holiday in Copenhagen! I have been in Europe for a week now and I love it here! I made a quick stop over in London for one night to do some shopping with the lovely Sabrina. I have a couple of posts coming to show you purchases from Primark and H&M.
I am leaving tomorrow for a week long trip to the Roskilde music festival where I will be camping for a week and watching lots of live bands. To be honest, camping is not my thing. I have never done it and this is going to be a tough week! Luckily its not too far to come back here and shower and refresh. This means posts for the next week are going to be scheduled. I have been having a great time fixing up the blog layout and getting posts up while being on holiday! I have so much more time! As for You Tube, at the moment it is a bit hard to update but I have SO many videos planned!
I will leave you with some pictures...

Myself and Nic at Bonfire night, a little bit cool out.

I got my infills done last week and chose this bright red colour by OPI called OPI Red and it may very well be the perfect red. It is not too orange in colour or too dark. It is simple and classic and a lovely red. Everytime I get my nails done I will be choosing a different colour but this may be a hard oneto beat.
What is your favourite red polish?

Fashion blogs have become a new favourite thing of mine. I spend so much time at work with Bloglovin' open and searching for new blogs. I have since come across these two girls blogs and have found a fashion trend - stripes. They wear scarves, cardigans, tops and more all with this similar pattern. Click their photos to be taken to their blogs, the photos are from their blogs.
So these are my finds from my lunch break shopping today.
This cardigan is beautiful. It is long in the front and can be tied up or left loose. Because it is baggy the sleeves are tight which adds a nice balance.
The detail in the back makes this so pretty and feminine.
This dress, a little too short to wear on its own for my liking but beautiful to wear with tights and a black cardigan. This one has the pretty detailing in the front.
Temp: Sale for $14.95

I went out for dinner this evening and got the opportunity to wear a new skirt I bought yesterday.
I am loving floral prints but as it is Winter here now I need to find a warmer way to wear them.

The accessories were simple, yet elegant and the makeup was to match.
