Feels like Summer


I’m so happy the weather gods are reading my blog and made it feel like summer this week because I was so much in the mood for summer! (ok, kidding)
That way I could wear my Givenchy lace shirt again in a casual look with boyfriend jeans and slides – first time my toes are exposed to the sun again since summer last year.
I have such a lace obsession lately but this shirt is definitely is my favorite piece of lace, as I said earlier, with fabrics like lace it can really be worth it to invest in. And I’ve been working out a lot lately and since it’s really starting to pay off (I actually have muscles now) I decided to wear this shirt again with nothing underneath, also because I love the contrast of a top that is sexy besides its crewneck and baggy jeans and slides.. Are you enjoying the sunshine today or are you stuck at the office (or in school) just like me? I hope not!

A little lace


Whenever I have a day off, a day at home or am just not in the mood to dress myself, this is what I wear.
I have this oversized vest in 3 different colors and love how it’s both oversized and sexy, especially when worn with a lace bra. And then I obviously wear this with a big hoodie from some menswear section and black skinny jeans. That’s my number 1 no nonsense chill outfit. And lucky there’s such a thing as sexy lace bras so that I don’t look like a total slouch (not sure if that’s a word but it was the only word I could think of to describe how I feel today). Off to the gym.

Getting Summer Ready


Nothing beats afternoon sunshine in spring. Except for afternoon sunshine in summer, that is. I really can’t wait for those warm summer days, nor for wearing espadrilles, shorts and bikinis. But everyone knows a summer wardrobe must be built in spring and a little anticipatory pleasure never hurt anyone. This summer will be a laid back one, one with lots of light weight fabrics and lots of denim – which is exactly what you’ll find in the Diesel SS14 collection. I’m in love with this oversized, hand bleached jacket that is the perfect light weight summer jacket I’ll be able to throw over nearly anything really. It’s just one of the great pieces of the new SS14 collection from Diesel filled with bleached denim, cool and easy summer garments and edgy pieces like this sweater with a cactus made out of tiny studs. I love to spice up easy outfits with a quirky print or embellishment every now and then!
Check out the full new collection right here, and let’s hope summer will arrive soon!
Happy Easter Weekend!

Blending in


Besides adding pastel blue to my spring wardrobe, I’m really into more natural colors that go really well with my black and grey wardrobe. I’m really into nude/tan shades and couldn’t resist to add these suede trainers to my sneaker collection – I love the beige/tan tone and their simplicity that is upgraded by their color. It’s crazy how happy a new pair of sneakers can make me (no worries, a lot of other things make me happy as well). I’m loving the color of this new bomber jacket as well that I scored in between meetings in Amsterdam this week. Jackets and shoes are the top 2 things I like to vary with while wearing all time favorites time after time (like this t-shirt dress) and I honestly don’t think I can have enough of either of them. Now what’s on my mind is a nude bag (which has been on my mind for a while now but since these trainers turned up, even more) to match the look. Happy Thursday!

White coat


Oh, the joy of sunshine combined with a fresh new white coat. I used to have a good white coat until it turned beige (that eventually happens with almost all things white in my wardrobe, I can’t seem to keep my whites white for long) and I got rid of it and decided that the white coat was not for me. Until I saw this one, clean, collarless, with zippers and splits at the sides, and then I decided to give the white coat another try. So far, so good, and I really plan on keeping this one the color that it is for at least this spring ( I know myself). Love the contrast with my dark hair as well, I made it darker again and cut my bangs, it was about time. Apart from that, not much news. Just my favorite type of high waist skinnies and I’m wearing lots of crop tops lately. Enjoy the sunshine!

Fresh Kicks

There;s nothing like a pair of fresh kicks to upgrade an outfit I so often wear and never get tired of – the all black skinny jeans, cool t-shirt and favorite leather jacket look. There’s a part of me that likes a good bit of alternation, wearing something different every day. but there’s also a part of me that wants to wear all black every day and black skinnies with black leather jackets all the time. When it comes to shoes though, variation is always best. It’s the joy of the morning in which I browse through my shoe collection and figure out which ones I’ll wear that day. I had been eyeing these Puma sneakers for a while now and am super happy to have gotten my hands of them, they’re such a fresh and cool pair of kicks and they walk like heaven.

Hope all of you had a great weekend! I went off the radar for a bit due to a lack of sleep, inspiration, photographer and energy but that was just because I had worked my butt off last week for the blog. It might seem a little strange, me telling you that I’m so very busy but in the mean time updating a bit less and not showing much changes yet – but as I said 2 weeks ago: all good things take time and the work I’m doing now will show in a few weeks, so bear with me! After recharging this weekend I’m fully ready, much inspired and excited for another busy week!
