An easy outfit for a day full of shopping in a city that isn’t my own. Such a fun thing to do: pick a city in your own country and discover the city by doing some serious shopping, sip on multiple coffees in different coffeebars, have lunch at a cute little place in between.. Me and my friend Sieta chose the city of Den Haag (The Hague) this time and ended up having an amazing and satifying day in the oldest shoppingmall of our country.. which will be complemented by a huge shoppingarea soon (think: large retailers like River Island, Primark, etc), so it looks like I defenitely need to get back as soon as the whole area is ready.
About the outfit: I was wearing one of my too-easy-to-throw-on leather jacket (slightly oversized fit, that’s why), dressy-trousers-in-a-not-so-dressy-way and my current faves: those kicks and that bag. What do you wear on a shoppingtrip? Or do you ever explore cities in your own country? Any tips?
From the moment I thought adding a little bit more femininity to my outfits, or better said: from the moment I thought dressing like I actually give a sh** would be the right thing to do, I sort of felt peace with my current easy-dressing-state-of-mind and decided that’s what makes me me. And that’s what probably always will be me. Laidback, not forced.. That’s exactly what I like about the outfits selected above: purity. Do you agree?
I spent the weekend in Copenhagen, as you might have seen on Instagram already. More about the trip later, but here’s what I was wearing. Casual, simple, and: blue? I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of boyfriendjeans – I love them to have a bit of an odd fit – but never managed to find one that was either long enough or one with the fit I was looking for. Till I discovered this one from MiH during their pressdays in Amsterdam last month. I haven’t been wearing such bright blue jeans for a while, but I can make sure from now on I will.

At this moment I’m writing from my hotelroom in Copenhagen. I was one of the lucky ones to go on a presstrip to this city that has slightly become my home-away-from-home (I tend to feel at home abroad very quickly.. The neighborhood I end up in, easily becomes ‘my neighborhood’ within hours). One of the many, MANY things that catches my eye is the way Scandinavian people (let’s generalise!) have the best interiors ever. Nothing new, I mentioned lots and lots of them on the blog before, but peeking into their homes while strolling the the streets of Copenhagen last night (yup, I’m one of those people.. are you?), made me wanna move here instantly or at least move their vision of interiordecoration to my own little palace (..) in Amsterdam. I think I’ll go for the second option, but wouldn’t mind risking my own safe home for option 1. Off to a wonderful day in Copenhagen today. Enjoy your weekends!
