Miracles Do Happen!




The ultimate power couple…the ultimate couple in fashion…Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl.  Now I know, and you know, that many of these photos are staged (especially the ‘candid’ instagram photos) as their body language is always that of a doting couple in the first blush of love.  And many people will dismiss this ‘idealization’ of love as fake and materialistic.  But I have another take…


Seeing positive…and visually beautiful…depictions of love is very inspiring.  Not to mention the discipline, hard work, and teamwork it takes Johannes and Olivia to create these photos.  They work really well together to be able to create this ‘allusion of perfection.’  A happy couple creates their own little ‘world,’ their own ‘culture’ unique to their relationship…and these images are Johannes and Olivia’s creation and for that I salute them!

At the end of the day, these pictures took Practice and as a result they are timeless.

Now the question is…*raises hands in steeple position as she gets a devilishly-thoughty look on her face* how do I…the Christine….get my boyfriend to agree to be a catalog model with me?  Hmmm….Que The Maniacal Laugh!!!

Olivia + Johannes Photos = Filed Under #RelationshipGoals!!!

One last comment…it’s amazing how many different ‘poses’ these two manage to create.  That’s why I created this post…to have a reference list of different ways to stand with my significant other when a camera is pointed in my direction.

Shorts and Top:  H&M

To save money this summer, I’ve decided that everything in my everyday wardrobe will have a nautical theme.  That means I only need one pair of shoes…these navy espadrilles.  This saves time and money and ensures that I always look put together.  Now I admit that these shorts are a bit ‘short’, but this is a more casual outfit for around the house.

I took these photos with my cell phone as I was walking around trying to find blog photo locations and picnic locations!  I found this picnic table behind an apartment building…I would love to eat dinner here :)

A fun weekend GoKarting.  It was shocking how tired I was after 30 minutes.  Nick and I were wiped!  Fun activity though, I love going on these little adventures!



H&M Jacquard Cropped Top and Skirt

I love this outfit, it is very very high quality for less than $100 dollars.  The fabric is a very expensive thick knit, the same type of knit you see used in designer clothing.  The color combination is fantastic, especially the navy around my neck which complements my skintone and brings the focus to my face.  I was so happy to take these photos in a greenhouse because it was warm, but also because the lighting was fantastic!  It was tough to decide which pictures to put up because the lighting just made every photo look great.

Smørrebrød is a Danish open-faced sandwich and they are amazing!  I have had some excellent smørrebrød, but never equal to the quality and serving size that I got at Kanal Cafeen, a restaurant near Nyhavn.  It was amazing!  I had the flæskesteg and smoked eel, while Nick had the fish fillet and chicken salad.  I can’t recommend this restaurant enough if you are in Copenhagen!  The decor was awesome and so homey and comfortable.  On a fashion related note…I am now going to make an effort to wear more interesting necklines.  I’m wore my Alice+Olivia skirt to the restaurant, but you can’t see it, nor can anyone else because I’m sitting down.  Necklines.  My new thing…Have a good weekend!
