There used to be a time I was an avid follower of the 5 Piece French Wardrobe method. I was intrigued by the idea of building an entire wardrobe around finding the perfect basics and adding just a few (yes, I think 5 pieces every season is a few) not-so-timeless pieces to spice things up a bit. Sounds like the perfect definition of my personal style: lots of basics, with the occasional show piece.
Anyway, it must have been around that same time that I bumped into this piece of leather perfection at a local store. Small, minimalistic, sturdy.. just awesome. I’m not sure what held me back, because quite a few bags have been added to my humble collection, but somehow I’ve never been able to get this one out of my head. And what do we do with things that get stuck in our heads to the extend that it even appears in our dreams? Right. We grab it while we can. So that’s exactly what I did.
Nothing beats a fresh pair of kicks, especially when you had the chance to design them your self. Welcome to the family, new Lunar Forces (yup, my trusty old Air Force 1’s, but with a – glow in the dark – Lunar sole), I’m in love. What do you think?

Mommy (read: me) did some shopping! And she added a dash of colour (muted, oxblood, but still) to her very black and grey wardrobe. Isn’t this purse a cutie? Not sure whether I’ll be using is as a wallet (strap can be removed, but it’s quite large for a wallet..), a clutch (not the biggest clutch person) or just a cute little biker purse with a long strap. For now, I’ll stick with option three.

I made a new friend! After carrying my 15″ Macbook, camera and workout gear in one hell of an ugly – and dorky! – backpack around for more than 5 months to my new job, I realized it was about time I got myself a proper (read: large huge!) bag to fit all my stuff in every single day of the workweek. Quite the challenge, because most of the bags that actually can measure up to the expectations either are 1. backpacks (not the fancy kind you find at Net-a-porter or Asos for that matter, but the dorky ones you might find at your local scouting club) or 2. have wheels underneath them and are meant to be flaunted by the elderly.
