Scandi Style: Two Ways

The Little Magpie Zalando Scandi Today's post combines two of my favourite things: Scandi brands and Zalando. We know all about the latter from previous gushy posts I've written, so I'll talk a little bit more about the former. I remember going to Copenhagen about three years ago now and falling completely and utterly in love with everyone and everything there; I don't know how they all got so goddamn cool and beautiful but, for some reason, they did... Walking around as a 5 foot brunette was not fun. Their minimal style was one of the main things I was totally in awe of, everyone just looks SO RIDICULOUSLY COOL. I know I've already used the c-word but it's imperative you realise how cool they actually are. Anyway, ever since then, Scandi brands have become one of my most visited. Today's post was a real joy to work on because I got to do not one, but two Scandi-inspired looks. Huzzah! I say inspired because I will never be cool enough (oops, there goes the c-work again) to look fully scandi, but I do like to take inspo as and where I can.... a girl can dream.

IVY REVEL suede look biker (also comes in burgundy and beige) | WOOD WOOD 'romantic' tee (also comes in blue) | SELECTED FEMME tie-waist trousers | 

Look one is very recognisable as 'an Amy outfit', isn't it. Cropped t-shirt? Check. High waisted trousers? Check. Biker jacket? Check. Obnoxious sunglasses? Check. But if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Or so I've been told. It does, however, feature three Scandi brands I absolutely love. The first is Wood Wood who do the most amazing slogan jumpers and tees (as well as some of the best basics I ever did see), the second is Selected Femme who do really, really well fitting, pared-down clothes, and the third is Ivy Revel, owned by Swedish babe Kenza whose blog has been one of my go-to's for years.

The second look features another couple of my favourite brands but sadly isn't particularly Scandi looking. I know, I know, I should have paired it with some trainers to give it that cool edge, but I'm just too small and thigh-y to do that, so instead paired it with some platforms. Cheap Monday is, for me, one of the ultimate Scandi brands. I own so, so many of their pieces - from tees to glasses - and could quite happily continue buying more until my wardrobe burst - of which I've had a good go at so far - so it was a no-brainer so pick something of theirs. I went for a slogan jumper this time, which is unbelievably soft, comfy and fits like a dream. You win again, Cheap Monday. The suit is from Sister Jane, another long time favourite of mine, and is one of the most best things I've seen in a while. I have been told I look like a leprachaun in it, yes, but I think that was just jealousy. And due to me being unfortunately positioned in front of a pub. I feel obliged to tell you that these trousers also come in RED BEE PRINT. Sorry, I got too excited there and accidentally slipped into capitals. But yes, they're amazing. Oh, also have a wee look at this dress. Please. B-e-a-utiul innit?

Another couple of Scandi brands which you need to check out - that sadly I didn't get to feature this time because there are only so many clothes a girl can wear - are Baum and Pfertgarden, Filippa K and Vagabond. Check out ze full selection of Zalando Scandi brands here!

Love absolutely everything about both of these looks - but I think the matching trousers and jacket with Cheap Monday is SO up your alley! And girl, what foundation are wearing? There's so much good about this outfit but I kept getting distracted by how rich and beautiful your skin looks. Yes, yes, yes!
