— Karl Lagerfeld
Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE summer in Denmark right now. I LOVE the heat, the sun, the warm long days, wearing flip flops and denim shorts. I love it all. I never expected it could be so great. BUT, I miss black. The Danes, bless their hearts adore wearing black. But in summer, the black disappears and out comes their rarely worn summer dresses, shorts and sandals. It’s almost a competition of how colourful can I be wearing the least amount of clothing I can but still being stylishly elegant… I miss black. I miss their wonderful outfits of head to toe black that make them look like they’ve walked out of a page in Vogue as opposed to returning home from a funeral. The black section (yes my wardrobe is colour coordinated) of my closet has expanded (and is expanding!) since my move to Denmark.
