I honestly can’t remember the last time I went on a shopping spree. ‘Shopping spree’. A word I used to associate with all kinds of positive feelings, now something that I can’t seem to bother too much about. I’m not saying I don’t enjoy a […]
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 bit earlier though, but that doesn’t make them any less fun: it’s me, wearing polkadots (!) and ruffles (!), two things I usually tend to avoid.
In general, I’ve noticed that I’m gravitating towards slightly more feminine shapes lately. As much as I love my ripped jeans/chunky knits/bulky shoes combo, I’m no longer shying away from trying different silhouettes any longer. Which is nice, but also makes me question my current wardrobe more and more (we all know that ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’ feeling, right)? I’m usually pretty ok with my wardrobe and the choices I make: I’m completely fine with not being the most notable out of the bunch and love my understated colour palette. But I do think I’m ready to try something new (says the girl who just ordered 3 pairs of uber basics jeans: black, grey and dark blue, I kid you not: the were necessary, I promise). So I’m curious: what do you think I should add to update my wardrobe instantly, but stay true to my style anyway?
My week in pictures. I’m planning on doing this on a monthly basis, just because I think it’s a nice way to catch up on things that have happened in my life, and because I always like to have a little peek in other people lives. That’s probably why I love Instagram so much ;) Kicking off this first diary post of the year with pics that were take pretty recently. Lennart and I went o the island, it was super cold, but like always we enjoyed it to the fullest. We even experienced the first little bit of snow of 2016, hurray! Also, got new shoes. And I’m in love.
As you can see, pretty cold, but pretty sunny. Spending time together is one of my favourite things to do during the weekend. Whether it’s something active – like working out or changing the entire living room because we feel like it – or something more relaxed – like walking around the island or city or bingewatching Netflix: as cheesy as it may sound: I’d rather do it all with this guy.
All bundled up in one of my favourite purchases of the year: a thick, wool, coat. I was wearing my longer length wool coat from Urban Outfitters for a few years and found an amazing replacement (I like this one even better) at COS. Of course. Also, I spend my days living work-train-sleep-repeat-life currently, and I’m very happy my Nike Metcons still keep up with me ;)
Hey, that’s me! In pink! Shocker, right? Even more shocking: I actually took it home with me and I love it. This super soft fine knit by COS literally works with everything in my wardrobe – perhaps because everything in there is black/grey – and it’s so comfortable.. Winner! Talking about winners.. I’m one of those people that keeps things in two’s or three’s when I’m super excited about it and I know I’ll be having a lot of wear out of the other versions as well. I already had the black Acne Jensen boots (btw, I’m selling them in a size 39! Turned out I had to go one size up, so now I’ve got them in 40 as well.. interested in the 39’s? Drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org), but couldn’t stop myself from adding the camel suede and burgundy smooth leather versions as well. Great line-up, huh?
Yesterday I visited the collection presentation of Costes. Yet again, it turned out to be really nice. Very affordable, nice and clean cuts. Happy to see lots of grey layering and striped wide trousers will come our way.. and we had an extremely nice salad over there. What I was wearing? My new shoes, of course ;)
Sale season. With Black Friday around the corner, sale season is kicking in like there’s no tomorrow. One of my favourite webshops already started their sale, and the best thing is: the more you get, the more discount you’ll receive (find all the details here). […]
