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.
Told you about me latest purchase right? Well, after lusting over them for several seasons already, these Maison Martin Margiela boots are finally mine. With their cylindric heel and buttersoft leather I consider these boots the ultimate basic-black-boots-with-a-twist, since I have to say to they quite quirky on foot. And that’s exactly what I like about them. Go get them here.
Black ankle boots – Maison Martin Margiela

Even though ankle baring jeans with entirely ripped knees might not be the best option to splurge on right before winter is kicking in, I know a
good perfect pair of jeans when I spot one. The hunt for a pair like these failed last summer – I’m not even exaggerating when I tell you I started my search around February already, FML – so buying myself a pair of these Rag & Bone jeans where totally justified. Premium denims, oh Gosh, they make me happy.
Tell me, are you a denim-kinda-gal? What are your faves? I’m curious :)
This tiny friend (it does do its name justice. This bag actually is tiny!) was screaming my name. Very loud. But I yelled back I was looking for a functional, black, midsized bag. A bag for everyday use, made out of soft leather. One that actually ticks off all the boxes when it comes to combining easily, being the right amount of casual and chic at the same time. One that blends in, but stands out as well. Well, do I sound strenuous? Looks like I’m not, since from the moment I saw this teeny-tiny, not-very practical (even my wallet doesn’t fit in it, but hey, there’s a compartment for cards – I convinced myself..), not-so-black (face it: it’s grey. Silver actually), not-so-soft (oh well, it’s stone-hard) and equally awesome fella over here, I was sold. And the bag too.
