A TASTE OF DOUBLE DENIM

A TASTE OF DOUBLE DENIM

It’s a funny thing: taste. Taste in food. Taste in interior. In people. In art. In friends. But also: in style. If you would have told me a year ago that I’d be wearing a light blue double denim ensemble, without any black (those shades […]

POLKADOTS AND RUFFLES (!)

POLKADOTS AND RUFFLES (!)

I honestly cannot believe it’s mid October and we were still able to enjoy the sunny weather this weekend like Fall/Winter is not around the corner (today’s is pretty cold actually, but let’s not go into details too much ;)). These pics were taken a […]

CHANGE IS GOOD

CHANGE IS GOOD

There’s something about empty, abandoned houses. To me they stand for change. They always give me this slightly eerie feeling, while on the other hand I love to see traces of people who lived their lives in their homes but now moved on to something new. Maybe bigger? Maybe cheaper? Maybe closer to their families? I blame it on my curious and imaginative nature, but these are the type of things I always wonder when looking at an empty space. Will it adapt to change, will it stand the test of time? Will it be loved? Or just demolished and replaced by a new building? What has it been used for and what will its new purpose be?

Talking about purpose: I’ve got a new job and I’m utterly excited about it. But slightly nervous as well. Not in a bad way, but change is something I always aim for, but on the other hand fear sometimes as well. I know I won’t be able to stop it from coming, so all I can do is either adapt to it or get left behind. And there’s something I dread even more than change and that is the feeling of being left behind. To no longer make any progress. So I came to realise that the more things change, the more they stay the same as well, because they all boil down to that one same question: do we fall back on what we know or do we step forward to something new? I always choose the latter. Change is good. To me, change is everything.

JUSTIFYING PURCHASES

JUSTIFYING PURCHASES

You know one thing I always try to do when buying new stuff? Whether it’s furniture, shoes or kitchen equipment (as if..): I always try to justify my purchases. Doesn’t always mean I always make the right choices, but at least I try to justify […]

HUGE CAMEL COAT

HUGE CAMEL COAT

I can hear you think: that’s one hell of a huge coat. And yes, it certainly is. When it comes to coats, to me bigger is certainly better. I like the cozy feeling of being able to crawl up in my coats even when I’m […]

DR. MARTENS ADRIAN LOAFERS

DR. MARTENS ADRIAN LOAFERS

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a huge fan of Dr. Martens. I bought my first pair of Docs when I was only 12 years old and can’t recall not wearing them. I’ve been made fun of more than once because of my weak spot for bulky shoes, but I honestly couldn’t care less. That particular pair is still part of my wardrobe and I still wear them. Talking about durable shoes or cost per wear.. Since then I added multiple pairs to the collection: a black, quilted Coralie pair, super dark navy Pascals and all black smooth leather low verions.. all equally cool.

So what’s up with these then? Well, you might remember I already wrote about my search for the perfect chunky pair of loafers, right? I should have known better than expecting to find them somewhere else than at Dr. Martens’. They know how to add the right amount of chunkiness to a classic shoe, just enought to satisfy my chunky-shoe-urge, without looking like a shoe your grandpa would wear. Or wait.. perhaps that’s even a good thing. I’m in love. Again.

ON THE HUNT

ON THE HUNT

With a closet full of shoes – I know a lot of people around me might think I’m a shoe hoarder, and I fully admit that – one might think I own shoes in every single shape and colour out there. Well, think again. 80-90% of […]

OUTFIT: 230315

        Ph. Shirley   New week, new outfit with old shoes, and old coat and even older shoes. Nothing beats a pair of worn out jeans: in my opinion they only get better after wearing them for years, don’t you think? This […]
