Annnd we’re back to sweater-and-boots weather again! Not that I really mind wearing all black again, and I’ve never regretted wearing chunky boots – not even when Summer’s in full swing – but hey.. At the end of July it would have been nice to be able to get out of the house without bringing an umbrella. Oh well, enjoy your days! :)

Nothing beats a pair of wide legged trousers when the temperatures are rising. I’m one of those people who gets told all the time that wearing black in summer is foolish, but hey.. black is my happy colour. To be completely honest: I’m just not fully prepared for the hot weather just yet, wardrobe-wise, so that’s why I dove into the back of my closet and started my hunt for forgotten items that deserved a come back. What to think of this flowy coat? Can’t believe I forgot about and immediately threw it on this black and white ensemble. Make me wonder: how often do we forget about items that once belonged to our faves? Happens to me a lot. Too much, actually, so I’m planning on arranging my closet again soon, and I’m curious what I’ll rediscover ;)

Summer sandals! To be honest, I’m very picky when it comes to sandals. I’m just not that into elegant, cute little sandals (that’s why I was very happy with last year’s Birkenstock revival, and I’ll continue wearing them this year as well I guess.. or look for substitutes), but these black and white ones where just too cool for school. Love the sneaker-like sole and the white dots on the black leather. A true black look upgrader and cute with for instance a nice pair of boyfriend jeans or a tshirt dress as well. These shots were taken in Paris during my trip with What For and it makes me long for another city trip even more. High on the wishlist:


– Copenhagen (again, yes, I know..)

– New York (never been there, but the urge is getting stronger and stronger)

– Barcelona (same story, and I could use some sun..)


Now that I come to think of it, my boyfriend and I still need to sort out what our summer holidays are going to look like. We’ll be having two weeks off at the end of September, but we’re still contemplating where to go. Any tips? They’re more than welcome ;)

Basics. Let’s talk about basics. Investing in timeless pieces has always been my best excuse for buying something new. Thoughts like ‘this literally matches with everything in my wardrobe!’ – duh, it’s black – or ‘this black tee/striped top/black shirt is só different from what I already have..’. cross my mind a little bit too often.


On the other hand, can you really have too many basic items in your closet? Pieces that you invested because you can think of endless combinations or might come in quite handy on days you’re not really in the mood for dressing up or overthinking your outfit? I’ll help you answer: NO. Period.
