Bon Voyage

So, tomorrow morning I start my journey back to the US. Christmas has been amazing! This past 6 months being home in Denmark has been so great. Grad school has really been all I hoped it to be, and I'm ready to start my 2nd semester.

... right now I'm finishing up packing, and then in just a few hours we will load up the car and head to the airport. Its going to be sad saying goodbye to my parents, especially cuz we have had such an amazing time - but we have skype! and hopefully they'll come see me very soon.

So next time I blog, it will be from US soil. Cincinnati, here I come....

Just the thing for New Years

(Champagne: Piper-Heidsieck)

I'm a champagne girl, so of course New Years is one of my favorite Holidays. Although I am pretty good at finding a reason for breaking out the bubbly at any occasion :) Well, not too long ago I was out at the bars with my friends from Grad School celebrating the last day of classes, and of course it wouldn't be a party with out Champagne! I tried a new brand and it was SO good! I have been looking at different stores to see where I can get it, but now it looks like I'm going to be spending New Years in the States. But this girl has her priorities in order! haha, so even though I don't have my plane ticket yet, I've done the research and I found the brand of champagne at the Party Source - phew! New Years saved! ;) the name of it is Piper, or Piper-Heidsieck. I especially like their Rose Sauvage! Its $45 for a big bottle, but you can get them in "baby" bottles too for 14 dollars. HAPPY NEW YEARS!

The Coatigan

(I really like the texture , color and pinning detail, from Day Birger Mikkelsen)

(Olivia from the MTV show "The City") I love this girly touch of this coatigan

I have been putting in some serious studying hours and working on my big project this weekend, so blogging has been a nice little break. I still love my boots! And now I can't stop thinking about all the new outfits I get to put together, which brings me to my latest must have - the Coatigan! Haha, I love the name :) Nice big cardigan that you can wear as a coat - perfect for all those little dresses I have. And luckly a lot of designers have put out some super cute ones this season, so the "Coatigan" goes on my Christmas list..... hm, I hope Santa reads blogs.

Dress me up!

(dress, forever21 Exclusivly ours)
I'm so happy that I now get to wear my dresses even more now that I've gotten my new fabulous boots. My budget is thight this fall/winter/spring, but that just gives me a chance to put even more thought into my fashion choices. I love this little dress from forever21, so I hope I can still get it when I get to go back to the States in a month. I think it would be a cute every day dress, where I can change up the accessories, belt, jewlery and so on; even put a cardigan over it.

Boots, Boots, Boots!

(Bianco boot, product number 31-42590)
I have been on the lookout for some new boots, and I have been trying on many different styles. The "over the knee" boots are super hot this season here in Denmark (and I've been told, the rest of the world too) - after trying on a pair I was hooked. Aesthetically they really speak to me, they are super stylish and feminine, and its a great alternative to a to a pair of "statement" heels (and a little more practical).
So the hunt for the right pair of boots had begun - and yesterday I found the perfect pair! They are "mid thigh", which is a category I hadn't even heard of before, and as the name implies they go up to the middle of my thigh, so they are a little taller than the "over the knee" model. I got mine at Bianco, and they are normally 1800 dkr, but they are totally worth every penny! Really nice leather, and a great fit.
Things to consider when bying this kind of boots:
Its great because you can get this kind of boot in any price range. If you get some that are not real leather, then remember once the material stretches it won't go back. Leather will form to your legs so even if it fits a little tight it will give a little. Ask in the store how the boot gets after you start wearing it, some do tend to start slouching when you start wearing them, so if you are looking for a sleeker look, then make sure the boot has some sort of tying options to keep it from sliding down. Although a heel is always great, in this case I would opt not going in that direction, that way you avoid the connotation of the famous PVC boots featured in Pretty Woman. Take this in to consideration as well when looking at the texture of the leather/pleather, don't get anything too shiny, because it will tend to look more like the far from fashionalbe PVC.

Doing Reseach in my favorite...

Oh joy of doing big projects! I'm in my research phase right now which means I get to read articles from the Wall Street journal and European Review among others. LOVE IT! Its is so interesting, and I keep learning something new. I'm writing about female leadership, and how to get more women into the board room. And combining reality and theory is a great big puzzle which in the end will turn out a great paper I'm sure!

Writing projects also means I don't have to "dress" up to go to school. Instead I get to wear super comfy sweat pants and hoddies(if its cold out like today)... I love my Old School sweat pants from Victoria Secret, not only are they super comfy, but they fit really well too, cuz they kinda hang off your body.This means they don't make my butt look big (haha). So I can totally recommend the Old School style if anyone is looking for cute sweat pants.
