OOTD | Evening in Copenhagen

Hey lovelies,

Last week I visited the beautiful city of Copenhagen with one of my absolute besties, Hemma.
Why Copenhagen, you ask? Well when you find £35 flights on Skyscanner, I think the question is more, "Why the hell not?"

It wasn't a place I knew much about so before our trip we did a little research - I did a little, Hemma did a lot - but we had the most fun and saw some incredible sights, without spending an absolute fortune; which is very easy to do in Denmark's capital, trust me! I was thinking of doing a post on my tips for exploring Copenhagen on a budget, so let me know if that's something you'd like to see.


 Satin Bomber Jacket - Primark
Blush Crop - Topshop
Leather-look Skirt - Missguided
Heeled Gladiator Sandals - New Look
Clutch Bag - Katie Loxton


I'd checked weather reports online and whilst it was sunny and warm for the majority of our trip, Denmark can get a bit chilly at night, so I headed to Primark for a thin jacket of some kind that I could wear in the evenings and tie around my middle when I didn't need it. I walked out with this beautiful silk bomber jacket, and I was pretty darn chuffed with myself, I must say.

Just sniffing my hair, obvs

I absolutely adore the look of this jacket, how the black and white collar and cuffs give it a Varsity edge, contrasted with the girlie feel of the applique flowers. Hemma loved it so much she's off to buy her own! (Don't blame her one bit!)

"Accidentally" matched my nails to my clutch too!

 I paired my jacket with my faithful leather-look Missguided skirt, and a cute blush top from Topshop, (picked out by my bestie/ personal shopper/ shopping addicts anonymous partner, Megan). As we were heading on to a bar crawl straight after dinner, I wanted a top that was fairly versatile, and this crop worked perfectly as the high neck made it conservative enough for dinner, but the cool twisted section at the front transitioned it to girls night out material!

Giving Nearly Headless Nick a run for his money..

 These Gladiator sandals have been my absolute summer staple this year. They cost £16 and I've wandered through cobbled streets in Portugal, monasteries in Prague and alongside Copenhagen's canals in these babies and I have zero complaints. Super comfy, cheap and CHIC. 

Finally I have to give a little mention to this adorable Katie Loxton clutch bag I found in a sweet boutique store in Kibworth. (The name escapes me but you can find some of their gorgeous products online) These little pouches are the perfect size for evenings and they come in all sorts of colours and slogans. Mine says 'In the Bag' and I'm forever getting compliments on it!

I hope you enjoyed this post, and as always let me know if there's something you'd like to see more of on this page.

Thanks for reading your Dose Of Copenhagen

    1. Ooh I'm going to write a post, a sort of budget guide for a few days in Copenhagen! Nyhavn (where I took these photos) is beautiful, it's by the harbour and all the buildings are pretty colours, and then across the bridge from it is Paper Island (papirøen) for the best street food market you've ever seen! Loves cxxxx
