I always loved industrial areas of the city. To me, they have this kind of different, cool vibes. Odense, the city where I live in Denmark at the moment, is more of a fairy tale than industrial and underground. Despite of that, there are a few spots with this kind of vibes I’m talking about, and I decided to capture them on blog. On this occasion and also because summer finally came to town and to this cold country (what, believe me, is a reason to celebrate) I finally took my velvet skirt out for a walk!
So there is this old school building not so far from where I live in town. I always pass by and can’t stop looking at it. It reminds me of some old factory and it is of very natural, earthy colours. The bricks are brownish and its huge windows are subtle green. You have to know that I fell in love with these windows! I can totally imagine turning this building into a gorgeous apartment – industrial on the outside, with huge windows and high ceilings, but cozy vibes inside. Absolutely hyggelig!
Hyggelig is a Danish word which doesn’t really have translation in English, but if we want to translate it, it means “coziness.” It is this coziness you create at home, especially during cold, rainy winter days. To help yourself create this atmosphere, you should definitely turn on some candles! However, hyggelig is not just an atmosphere, it’s a feeling. This kind of feeling you only create in your happy place, surrounded by friends and family, or simply by good company, while you all are chilling together. Simply put, I love it and if this was my apartment (yes please), it would be that!
Well, while doing this photo shoot, the weather outside was everything but hyggelig. It was pretty cold, windy and cloudy, which on the other hand really fits the atmosphere of this building. Lauren, who was in charge of taking these pictures, and I had quite a fun time, trying not to get hit by a bicycle as she was always standing on the bike lane, while trying to get the perfect shot!
This being my first ever fashion photo shoot for this blog, I was pretty excited. I was also excited because I finally took my velvet skirt from Monki out for a walk! I never wore it before and I think it perfectly fits the surroundings and the colours of the building. I decided to par it with a simple black tee (it’s my go to piece) and a plummy sweater/top which I got from thrift shop. As it was still not so warm, I wore my Zara ankle boots. My hair is, as you can see, all over the place, as usual, when it’s windy like this!
So, I hope you liked my first outfit style post, definitely let me know in comments below what you think! ♥ And as I mentioned before, photos are by Lauren McCormick, if you liked them, you can check out her amazing work here!
