MODERN BUSINESS

We have always found elegant business fashion to be very stylish. Pantsuits, skirts, blouses, as well as simple trousers or jumpsuits. The fashion reflects the own personality and makes for a professional and serious impression.

Spring is a particularly exciting season for fashion enthusiasts. We are combining, experimenting and layering as much as possible – that’s why creativity doesn’t stop at our office outfit! Today we would like to introduce you to our favorite business look for spring.

As Women at Work, we are not only regularly confronted with new professional challenges, but also with one or the other fashionable dilemma. Business looks for women are far less easy to implement than the corresponding dress codes of our male colleagues. Especially if you want to bring your own individual style into the office styles. Fortunately, there are very special pieces that enhance every office look in the same fashion.

But the outfit not only suits the office but also a successful evening in a slightly fancier restaurant or an event where a glamorous wardrobe is desired.

KRKONOŠE

Let us just tell you about our winter holidays in Krkonoše in the Czech Republic. It’s one of the best vacations every single year and we literally can’t wait for next year after arriving at home again.

Julia: So this year has been my 14th year going to the same place to go skiing. I went to the ski school when I was 5 years old and now I’m 18 and since then we ordinarily go there every year. Actually, I don’t want to go skiing anywhere else because I love this place maybe because I connect something emotional with it.

We started as a big group of people that are friends of my parents. Even though the big group gets rarer every year it doesn’t stop me from skiing there. In all these years a lot of funny things happened that are literally to awkward to tell you.

Two years ago Melli joined our ski crew and it was her first time being on skis. I slowly teached her how to ride these planks and now she’s a pro just like me after several crashes.

We really recommend to go skiing in the Czech Republic. It’s not only cheaper it is also as beautiful as for example the Alps. If you are looking for relaxed ski slopes, the Czech Republic is the place for you. If you are looking for some rough slopes, well, then the Alps are probably better.

Love this place so much: how the trees bend from the snow load, the wide area covered by meter-high snow on the high mountains & where only the fir tips look out from the snow, skiing through the snowy forest, taking the first step in the fresh snow or the trickle when it’s snowing. The area exudes so much peace. Enjoy every single moment there.

PONCHO SCARF

At first we were looking for a real poncho but then we came across the poncho scarf. We would call this poncho scarf an absolute all-rounder.

Especially handy is that you can easily convert the poncho into a scarf, in case it gets too cold or you forget your scarf.

You can throw it over your shoulders or use it as a super nice big cuddly scarf. As you can tell, he is just totally uncomplicated. Just throw on a poncho when you leave the house & you look elegant and extravagant.

Incidentally, the poncho originally came from the South American countries. The classic poncho looks like a blanket with a slit in the middle, through which the head can be put. Meanwhile, the poncho has established itself rather as a coat-like cape without sleeves. Ponchos are now available in a variety of color and pattern variants. Especially great we like pastels.

You can combine the poncho to suit any situation, school, office or finer events. Either you combine a blouse or a normal shirt, as we, depending on.

MUSTARD YELLOW

Let the sun go down on me … but that’s almost impossible this season. However, a small sun replacement provides this new trend color which has sneaked into our wardrobe in the autumn: mustard yellow!

Let’s be honest, the sun presents a warm feeling in our little white winter world. It has something cheerful and melancholy. Everywhere we look, we can see this rich shade of yellow.

It makes a perfect match together with the colors grey, black, gold and brown because this powerful yellow loves strong contrasts.

If you stroll through the shopping streets soon you will encounter many small accessories because mustard yellow is especially represented in handbags, scarves, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. They are all currently dipped into the mustard pot.

Do not miss it, you know: Mustard is hot! Literally! Also it fits perfectly to dark purple, navy blue, green, special tones such as petrol and fir green or moss green and kaki. Those who prefer warm colors should combine such tones as burgundy, orange or copper.

GUEST POST: COPENHAGEN

The 8 best restaurants and hotels in Copenhagen

If the Danish capital is one of your next destinations, start preparing the trip with our restaurant and hotel tips in Copenhagen.

Looking for restaurants and hotels in Copenhagen? The catering offer in Copenhagen is quite rich with places to suit all tastes and wallets. From the most distinctive and innovative to the most traditional, one thing is certain – you must try the Nordic gastronomy, for its high quality and focus on the use of local and seasonal products.

When it comes to sleeping, there are no shortage of options. From the finest hotels to more options, our Copenhagen hotel suggestions have a commonality – its great location in central parts of the city that allow you to quickly reach the main attractions.

RESTAURANTS IN COPENHAGEN: MOUTH WATERING SUGGESTIONS

The Palaegade is a classic restaurant in the historic center of Copenhagen. Here you can sample some Nordic specialties such as Smorrebrod, an “open” sandwich – combinations of ingredients such as blue cheese, pear and hazelnuts, roast beef, pickles and radishes are placed and served under a slice of bread.

For lunch, we also serve Aquavita, a kind of typical Danish brandy enriched with aromatic herbs. For dinner you can order more exquisite dishes such as poached sole with cucumber, potatoes and white fish roe sauce. Accompany with one of the wines from the discerning restaurant selection.

UFORMEL

The Uformel (in Portuguese, informal) belongs to a restaurant chain in which also includes the Palaegade. However, contrary to our previous suggestion, and as its name implies, Uformel is an unpretentious restaurant, with more affordable prices, but that keeps the focus on the quality of the products.

Taste the mullet with grilled corn, herbs and yogurt or steak tartar with pickles of mushrooms and black pepper. The 15 dishes change according to the season and the ingredients used come from domestic producers. In addition, Uformel has also gained fame thanks to its cocktails, which you can try before you start the meal.

NEIGHBORHOOD

The specialty of the Neighborhood is the pizzas, and they are not any pizzas. These are modern interpretations of the Italian classic, lighter and crisper, organic and greener. The pasta is reduced to about half of a traditional pizza and the ingredients are mostly fresh vegetables, pickled vegetables, fresh cheese, fresh pesto, seafood and high-quality meats. There are also cocktails and yes, you guessed it – they are also organic, with fresh and seasonal fruit, herbs and vegetables. If you prefer, opt for a natural juice.

The experience of making a meal in the Neighborhood is also worth it for the space. Food is served at long tables, where people sit right next to each other. The goal is to foster the spirit of good neighborliness and community.

COPENHAGEN STREET FOOD

We could not fail to suggest, on this list of restaurants and hotels in Copenhagen, the passage through Copenhagen Street Food, with its food trucks, coffees, beer and other drinks. Some of the participants serve food of organic origin, but here what matters most is the taste, albeit ally, always, a component of sustainability. And you can sample specialties ranging from Korea to Mexico, from Italy to Scandinavia, at affordable prices.

In addition, you will get to know Papiroen (Paper Island), the small island that once served as a paper warehouse and which today houses not only Copenhagen Street Food but also several art galleries, area businesses creative and trendy cafes.
