At the Beach {Denmark}

We are out in the Danish countryside with dependable wifi for the moment, so I thought I would try out a blogging app from my iPad for a quick post.

We're having beautiful warm and sunny weather after just a little rain when we first arrived. We've been shopping on Stroget in Copenhagen - one of my must-dos when we visit... Found some great things at Zara and the department store Illum. Ilum has a Reiss section inside where I was able to check out one of Kate's lovely dresses (the tan one she wore when meeting the Obamas; they had UK 6 and 12 in stock as of Saturday)... And bought a great grey striped cotton/cashmere pullover - my first Reiss item.

I already have so many photos from Copenhagen, Trelleborg, family meals (the food here is amazing) and two trips to the beach. I will put together some more organized posts with pictures when I am back at a computer but for now I think I can figure out a quick check in now and then when I'm up early :) We have more adventures planned for today!

I hope everyone is starting out a wonderful week.



  1. What fun you must be having, great meals and new shops to explore.
    Happy holidays...the weather looks sunny too!

  2. Congrats on your purchase from Reiss! I think, Kate seems to favor Whistles and Reiss the most among the British high-street brands.

    I've relocated back to London just recently. There was so much hype here about Kate and Will's visit to US.

    I loved almost all of Kate's dresses on this visit, especially the lime green DVF dress that she wore. It looked beautiful!

    Have a fantastic holiday!

  3. Best pic ever, I am so jealous!

  4. Sounds like a wonderful vacation!

  5. Love the photo! Looking forward to seeing your new purchases!

  6. Great photo! Hope you and your family are having a wonderful time!

  7. Oh how I Love Illum. I used to travel to Denmark for business and always scheduled a weekend stay over so I could shop the Stroget in Copenhagen.

  8. Dear Sparrows&Sparkle,
    your photograph is the essence of 'Summer at the Seaside". Enjoy your holiday (and manage to get all your good buys into the airplane :-)

  9. hostess - thank you
    Mona - how wonderful - I can't wait to visit London again :)
    Bourbon & Pearls, Tricia & Phyllis & Sarah Mina - thank you!!
    Jacquelyn - how wonderful you could do that! I love shopping on Stroget. Unfortunately didn't make it in to Royal Copenhagen or Georg Jensen this time but had lots of fun at Illum and Zara and checked out Mulberry (and my son enjoyed the Lego store) :)
    Britta and Rose - thank you so much :)
