SUMMER FOOTWEAR: MULES

SUMMER FOOTWEAR: MULES

Ahh, those mules.. On my hunt for proper Summer footwear – quite the task, I’m very picky when it comes to Summes shoes, that’s why I always continue wearing ankle boots and sneakers during our warmest season – I bumped into this simply gorgeous outfit […]

HOW EVEN I CAN ADD A SPARKLE

HOW EVEN I CAN ADD A SPARKLE

It’s not very easy to think of an outfit for Christmas that doesn’t include a proper sparkle. But here’s the case: I’m just not that into sparkles. Glitters. Sequins. I can appreciate them – when well executed – but just not on me. Until these […]

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 my shoe closet consists out of sneakers (duh!) and ankle boots. Doesn’t mean I don’t like other types of shoes. Even though you wouldn’t say so, I’m very picky when it comes to finding the right pairs. For example, I’d love to add a pair of plain black heels to the collection. A simple and clean pair, preferrably with a not-too-high-nor-too-low heel – let’s call it a walkable one – that can be worn with a pair of ripped jeans, but super classy with black trousers or culottes as well. Besides the black heels, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of black loafers. To me, loafers need to tick a few boxes:

– Black. Black is always the better option.
– They have to be rather chunky, when they’re too elegant, I think they look fussy on me.
– No shiny leather, because as much as I loved Michael Jackson, his style certainly wasn’t mine ;).
– Small enough for my narrow feet (rather hard to find when thinking of demand number 2).
– Not too stiff (note to self: if shoes don’t fit properly in store, they won’t stretch enough until they do).

So, when all else fails, I can always rely on my trusty old sneakers and boots, but I’m determined to find the perfect black, chunky loafers this fall. Can’t wait to pair the with an awesome pair of glittery or white socks (maybe Michael J. and I do have more in common than I initially thought..?). Tips are more than welcome.

How do you like loafers anyway? Or how would you pair them? I’m curious!

Ph. me/iPhone.   My life in pictures. It has been a while since I posted an Instadiary. Not because nothing happened, but maybe because there was just too much stuff going on on my life. Drama? Not at all. Fully enjoying a busy schedule (yep, […]

NEW IN: MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA TABI BOOTS


Ph. me.
 

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.

SHOPPING: BLACK ANKLE BOOTS

SHOPPING: BLACK ANKLE BOOTS

  Black mid-heeled ankle boots. I guess that – besides classic pumps – these are the shoes I am most critical about. They have to have the perfect nose, perfect shape around my foot, perfect leather, perfect heel, perfect-pretty-much-everything. For someone who is so picky […]
