Today we had a perfect autumn day in Copenhagen. A and I went for a walk in the sunshine, A played with his friend E and I shared a pot of coffee with my dear friend Elise while the boys took their nap. Just perfect.
Today I’ve been married to the love of my life for 8 years!
It’s not a secret – I simply adore German retro fashion, so much I want my entire wardobe to just be that – filled with lovely handmade colourful retro adorable clothing from companies like Bonnie & Buttermilk. Yes I wish they also sold accessories like tights, hats and so on. Ok might be fashion starved […]
