It’s true! An incredible opportunity came up and my husband, pug, and I are moving to Copenhagen, Denmark in the new year. Neither of us have ever been (!!), but I’ve read a great deal about the city and am thrilled to be moving back to Europe. Copenhagen is famous for its award-winning food scene (hello Noma), chic Scandinavian design, and progressive environmental and social policies. My Kierkegaard scholar husband is geeking out to say the least. Though we don’t leave for a couple months, we’re already busy applying for visas and getting Alfred all the necessary pug immigration paperwork. I’ve even begun using Babbel and Duolingo to learn a bit of Danish. Not to mention all the trips I’m planning (Amsterdam, Berlin, Stockholm, Marrakech!). Have you been to Denmark…? Do you read any Danish blogs or know anyone I should meet there…? Any tips for learning Danish…? Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
French fashion icon and Chanel ambassador Vanessa Paradis graces the cover of Vogue Paris‘ December/January issue and I love her toothy smile. A singer, model, and actress (and yes, the former partner of Johnny Depp), Vanessa’s unique beauty has always been a breath of fresh air on the fashion scene. Her perfectly imperfect smile reminds me of American style icon Lauren Hutton, a fellow Neo-Trad girl crush. Below, some more photos of Vanessa I love.
P.S. On a totally unrelated note, big news to share this week! I’ve been bursting at the seams to tell you (no, I’m not pregnant). Stay tuned!
My apologies for the lack of posts this week. I got hit with a brutal cold upon returning from Italy (thank god for chicken soup) and have accomplished little since. Thankfully, I’m on the mend and am slowly but surely getting into the holiday spirit. These images from J.Crew’s December catalog are perfectly festive. They shot the campaign in County Kerry, Ireland and between the rolling green hills and pink sheep, I’m ready to book a flight. Did I mention, all winter styles are currently 40% off…? Thankfully for procrastinators like myself, there are three days left for guaranteed holiday delivery.
