Viewers of my Instagram stories over the recent months will have noticed Dean, and I have kicked 2017 off with a massive workload..renovating a house. It took us the best part of 2016 to get our hands on a bedraggled terraced in need of love, so now it's all hands on deck to get us into our new home before the year is up. The past four months have been demanding to say the last, more so for Dean than me because he's the one spending his weekends carrying out the structural work. Neither of us has taken a break or given ourselves the opportunity to step back and appreciate how far we've come already this year, so when The White Company invited me to get involved in their Celebrate The Everyday campaign, I knew it was time to do just that.
What better place to come to appreicate everyday simple pleasures, than Copenhagen. We're here for 4 nights, with one plan only: to relax. Quickly becoming one of my favourite cities, Copenhagen couldn't be more different from the London rat race. The change of pace is extremely refreshing, so far our time has been spent relishing warm pastries at Meyers Bageri, biking along the lakes and moseying through Assistens Cemetary. (Along with eating lots of good food of course).
For this trip I packed with a simple mix and match approach in mind, 3 trousers, 3 tops, one pair of shoes and one jacket (oh and a raincoat just to be on the safe side). Althought were still struggling to shake the spring chill, I'm glad to be ditching the heavy winter layers finally. The White Company's new linen collection is the perfect mix of smart & casual. This classic shirt, paired with Oxford trousers and a basket, to cram baked goods into of course, have been such easy and comfortable pieces to wear whilst exploring Copenhagen.
