What I admire in other women’s personal style? Effortlessness. When I first started blogging, about 8 or 9 years ago, I remember feeling a bit insecure about the way I dressed. Not because I didn’t like my own style – it was my own style […]
A little while ago I was asked to shoot a couple of looks with C&A. Theme: denim. As a true denim lover this was a task true to my heart but I have to admit that usually visiting C&A isn’t part of my shopping routine (as if I even have one). Not sure why, because one of my favourite cashmere sweaters (I got it in three different neutrals: black, grey and camel, not kidding) is from C&A and I promised myself to think outside of the box a bit more often when it comes to shopping. This could be about shapes or materials, but also about places to go shopping. I’m very loyal when it comes to picking brands and shops, but this seemed a great opportunity to explore what this Dutch fashion concern has to offer.
And I was pleasantly surprised: the fit of the jeans was great (I did go one size up in most of their jeans by the way, because I liked the fit better then). Their stretchy-but-not-too-stretchy denims turned out to be super comfortable and are available in different lenghts (I took the tallest ones). Also, you’ve seen me wearing that wonderful grey coat here and here already. Like I just said, I love the softness of their 100% cashmere knits (where can you get a real cashmere sweater for 80 euros nowadays? Right..) and the fact that they have everything to finish off your look under one roof. You can find the looks I created with the items down below, but you can check out the article on the C&A blog here.

Considering the amount of sale-temptations I’ve already had – the office I work from is in the middle of the city center of Amsterdam and I’m always online.. imagine the pop-ups of all my favourite webshops popping up all day – I’m proud to say I haven’t indulged so much just yet. But when this coat I Instagrammed months ago ended up on sale ánd I had some vouchers left, I couldn’t resist taking it home with me. Can you blame me? It literally cost me the price of a Pumpkin Spice Latte, and do we ever think twice about getting a Pumpkin Spice Latte? Exactly. We don’t.
