I’M WEARING A SKIRT!

I’M WEARING A SKIRT!

Black and white never fail me. Even though I tried to wear a little bit more ‘colour’ lately (blue and camel tones that is), I always get back to wearing my trusty old black and white combinations. Also something I always go for: leather jackets, […]

LOOKING FOR CONTRASTS

LOOKING FOR CONTRASTS

Contrasts. Somehow I’m always looking for contrasts in my outfits. In this case: wearing a pencil skirt with sturdy leather combat boots and a leather jacket. But let me talk about those boots for a minute: it’s not much of a secret that I’ve always […]

DIARY POST

DIARY POST

It has been a while since I did my last diary post and because it’s one of the things I really like to read on other blogs, I decided to do another one. Just because Instagram shows a little sneak peek into my life, but never really shows what my thoughts were behind taking the pics. So here we go:

1. Even though it’s been a few months already, I’m still in the process of downsizing my wardrobe. These boots definitely aren’t going any where, can you blame me? Got them at Sarenza last year. 2. Chilling on the couch. I’m not really a couch patato, but after a long work day of a satisfying day during the weekend there’s nothing more relaxed than crashing on the couch. With my love. And the latest episode of Game of Thrones. 3. Rediscovered this old ensemble and I’m so happy we are able to wear Summer clothes again. 4. Paid a visit to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. Playing tourist in our own city is something my love and I really like to do during the weekends. Isn’t this library amazing? 5. Wrote an article about my happy place and how having happy feelings can make me insecure. Read it here, if you haven’t read it yet. 6. Haven’t had a single regret about getting these slip ons (twice..) last season.

1. Lunch break shopping! One of the things I like to do best during my lunch break: stroll around the city for a bit. Sometimes I just walk for an hour, sometimes I like to do a little bit of shopping.. found this navy number at COS and fell in love. 2.  Old but super comfy boots. 3. Can’t wait to wear this white love a bit more often. It’s pretty thick, so I might have to wait until after Summer.. 4.  Love this combo. Never expected to wear this cute little Furla bag as much as I do, but I love how it works with slightly less ‘chiq’ items like the ripped, baggy jeans I’m wearing in that particular outfit. 5. Clarks did a great job with these shoes from their Trigenic collection (available at Sarenza), so comfy! 6. Dark blue denim is my new fave. Can’t believe how many possibilities this jacket has. Found it here, but I’ve been thinking about getting this embroidered one too..

1. After 5 or 6 six years, I’m still madly in love with these Isabel Marant Dicker boots. Such fail-safe classics! 2. One of the looks I was wearing in Bruges, where I spent a great weekend with my lovely mom. 3. New sunnies. I’m a sucker for classic Ray Bans (I think I’ve got almost all shapes and colours, I should start me own little store ;)) but love this tortoise pair I found on sale. 4. The Nike Metcon‘s. Best training shoes I ever had. I might have something to do with the fact that I work in a sports business, but it surprises me every time again that so many people in the gym are wearing the wrong shoes! I see Nike Roshes and Huaraches around me all the time.. please guys, these are your post work-out shoes ;) 5. Cute little tee I for a couple of euros at H&M. Love it to bits. 6. Bruges. Reminds me of two things.. First: I want to spend more time with my parents. And second: I want to travel more.

SHOPPING FOR STATEMENT PIECES

SHOPPING FOR STATEMENT PIECES

A little while ago I discussed the 5 Piece French Wardrobe principle in this article after cleaning out my closet (I’m still in the process btw.. I’m certain I can take out much more!). I mentioned the items that I consider true essentials in my […]

KREUZBERG, BERLIN

KREUZBERG, BERLIN

A little while ago we visited Berlin for a short and sweet city trip. even though I’ve been to Berlin a couple of times already, I always enjoy the versatility of this city. Very fascinating to experience how divided Berlin has been (and somehow still […]

DRESSES IN FALL

DRESSES IN FALL

I tend to wear my dresses in Fall way more often that I do in Summer (even though I have to admit I’ve spent more time in t-shirtdresses this year than ever before). Same story for skirts. Paired with a chunky knit, bulky boots or a leather jacket every dress feels instantly more ‘me’. In the meanwhile I guess I single handedly turned the cost per wear of this dress into the price of a peanut (yep, a single one) because I’ve been wearing this one on so many different occasions already (remember this one?). Love it, when you can wear a Summer fave as transition wear (and probably during the entire winter) as well.

LEATHER JACKET LOVE

LEATHER JACKET LOVE

Yup. Couldn’t stop myself from getting not one but two new leather jackets and I even felt slightly proud for not bringing a black one home this time (yes, that dark one is green. Dark green, but at least no black). Which makes me think: […]

OUTFIT: 120515

    Ph. Tara   Don’t we all love a jeans-plimsolls-leather-jacket-kinda combo? At least I do. Especially since I found this new leather jacket on a Goosecraft sample sale a little while ago but haven’t really been able to wear it yet. Now that the […]
