I happened to be watching a Rick Steves show on Denmark and in the show they were describing a way of living that they had. It was called hyggelig (hoo.gl.ee). This hyggelig meant you always have a drink, some food, and at the very least a candle between you and your company. It meant feeling cozy at the very base translation of the word but actually much more, it was your surroundings without anything that would make you feel ill at ease or emotionally overwhelmed. It was actually the pursuit of serenity, of comfy, of homey, of anything that brought that warm fuzzy to your soul.

My jaw dropped at this Danish discovery of self. That one single word summed up the pursuit of my entire life. Hyggelig!!! This blog is about just that, all the things that make me feel hyggelig. My only hope is that they inspire you to find your own hyggelig too. Imagine a world full of hyggelig, just imagine...

Pre-Fall 2011

Alright, pre-fall 2011 has arrived. Not very exciting in my opinion but I did like a few looks. I did notice lots of fur all through the shows. Other than that hmmm kinda blah. Although Tibi did an awesome show I loved but it was all summer looking so I decided not to post it.

3.1 Phillip Lim (one fur I did like)

The next two were kind of inspiring for casual looks. You could take these in many directions.

 Tory Burch
Rachel Roy
 Diane von Furstenberg 

Burberry Prorsum (my fav look)

United Bamboo
Alice & Olivia (of course this would be worn with tights)
Well, thats it. I'm excited for the fall 2011 shows to arrive. Until then happy fashion dreams!
