Currently Reading & Wearing: Summer House Edition

edith & ella shoes

I’ve spent the last week in a summer house with Mr. Boyfriend. The weather was brilliant and we did nothing but read books, take naps and prepare food. I left much of the latter to Mr. Boyfriend, though … But I knitted some cute little things, I’ll show you some other time. I wore my Edith & Ella shoes a lot. They are comfy and pregnant-lady friendly.

As for the books: I made it through Murakami’s Underground, which was a scary read on Tokyo’s gas attack in the 90s. After that I needed something light and entertaining, so the choice naturally fell on John Green’s Paper Towns. I enjoyed it a lot, but it left me longing for a different reading experience, something to shake me world a bit. Enter Edith Wharton! She never disappoints (disregarding Ethan Frome) and this little black Penguin edition made my day. I was heart broken that it was so short – I was ready to dive right into Wharton’s universe for a week or so without coming up for air. But all good things come to an end. Luckily I had Betty Smith’s A Tree Grows in Brooklyn to lick my wounds. I’ve only read about 20 pages, but it’s very promising! At night, Mr. Boyfriend and I listened to Dracula, which we finished on our last day. Tonight we’ll probably start listening to one of Hemingway’s novels.

I can still squeeze into much of my old summer clothes. This white dress is an old favorite of mine. I have no idea where it’s from, it’s just always been there in my closet. It leaves a lot of space for a giant belly, which has been a good thing lately. I paired it with my somewhat new Banned cardigan which I got at Rockahula and my red Office shoes from London. I’ve got a weakness for light blue compared with bright red.

Asos Maternity Dress blue with white collar

I have some big news to share today: I’m pregnant! Mr. Boyfriend and I are expecting a baby girl in November, and we’re super excited – can’t wait to meet her! So far (25 weeks) I’ve been lucky and have had a very easy pregnancy with almost no discomforts. I have no idea how it’ll affect the blog, but there will naturally be some changes as my life is changing.

Asos Maternity Dress blue with white collar

Today I’m wearing a super comfortable dress from ASOS Maternity – there’s plenty of room to grow in it, which is good. And it’s one of those dresses that’ll still be pretty to wear after pregnancy, so I think it’s a keeper. The shoes are vintage from Bangkok and the bag is also vintage, but from Twenty here in Copenhagen

Last Thursday was a sunny bank holiday. Mr. Boyfriend and I went for a long walk around √ėsterbro, looking for plants. It’s very difficult for us to have plants in our home because our cats keep eating them. So we want to find some alternative ways to have plants and herbs indoors where the stupid cats can’t reach them. We still haven’t decided how to solve the problem, but I’ve found a lot of fun and creative solutions on Pinterest – I’ve created a board for my favorite ideas here. Pinterest is becoming one of my favorite tools for searching and sorting inspiration.

But I’m digressing – here’s what I wore on our walk:

Top: from Baan Suan
Skirt: Second hand from Twenty
Bag: Second hand from Twenty
Shoes: Irregular Choice

On our way home, we walked through Holmens Kirkegaard which is so pretty during the spring and summer. A few years back, I did another outfit post at this spot.
