Tropical

zoe karssen tropical pineapple print tracksuit trousers sweater asos

Tropical prints will be big this summer and even though you I might not be the girl that wears colorful tropical prints, I have a weak spot for prints done really well. I love this tropical print tracksuit from Zoe Karssen, from the color to the print. I’d totally wear this.

Friday gear (the essentials)

spring essentials look

Here’s what I wish I was wearing today.
If you’ve read this weeks talk on basics and essentials and it doesn’t make sense yet: these are my spring essentials.
Gingham is fully back so I’m looking for a good gingham shirt like the simple black and white one pictured above. I can’t go without espadrilles this spring and I’ve been obsessing over these particular ones ever since I first saw them in Copenhagen last year. I really need a lace bra this spring (I ordered this exact one) to let it peek out a little from underneath low v-neck shirts and blouses. Another thing I’ll be wearing a lot this summer (but hopefully in spring already) are boyfriend shorts, love these heavily shredded ones. The perfect black bomber, an essential that is still missing in my wardrobe. And last but not least, as you know I don’t own that many bags and I’ve been looking around to see if there’s anything I like at the moment and this one really caught my eye. I absolutely love the nude leather!
So yes, wishing I looked like this today but if you want to see what I really look like today – take a look at my instagram later ;) Happy Friday!

Lace bra: Monki / Gingham shirt: Topshop / Bomber jacket: Acne / Bag: 3.1 Phillip Lim / Espadrilles: Samsøe & Samsøe / Shorts: Blank NYC via ASOS (I ordered them a size up to wear them as boyfriend shorts and they’re really good!)

Sort of Black Gold

triwa sort of black gold watchtriwa watch goldsort of black gold 2014 triwa watch

There’s certain pieces in a wardrobe that you will buy a lot of until you find the perfect one and then you’ll only need one. I’ve bought a lot of (faux) leather jackets in the past but ever since I’ve found the perfect one, that one is all I wear – and all I need. Same goes for watches. I used to have only 2, the perfect simple one, the perfect rose gold one, but I’ve never found the perfect gold watch until now. Not only is it the most gorgeous gold watch – just the right shade of gold, simple but with just the right details and very high quality – it’s also the coolest new watch in town. May I present you the Sort of Black Gold watch, a collaboration between Triwa and Rasmus Storm (i.a. owner of concept store Storm in Copenhagen) who have created 4 gorgeous watches (see them all here) and launched their collection last week (exclusively available at 10 stores worldwide including Storm, Hypebeast Store, Colette and online at Triwa.com. I feel very happy to be one of the first people wearing this watch and even more than that I’m in love with it and wear it all the time. It reminds me to not settle for anything less than what I’m looking for and invest in really good pieces.

Lace 2.0

Givenchy favelas lace number t-shirt

For the last year or so, lace has been growing on me. It’s never been in my closet much until the past year when I added some lace to my wardrobe – especially black lace.
There’s some fabrics though that really require quality to look good, and lace is one of them. There’s a really big difference between cheap lace and delicate, detailed lace.

Meet the latest addition to my wardrobe. The most delicate lace, but in a cool crew neck oversized fit with just the right overprint to make it a statement piece. I guess we can always trust Givenchy on that. However, the excitement is twofold since with this top came the discovery of an online store called The Clutcher selling a great selection of designer brands such as Givenchy, Balenciaga, Balmain, Kenzo, Margiela, Céline, Valentino and much more. I must say, it’s hard to decide whether the discovery of this great online store makes me happier or the lace number does, but since the last one is actually mine, it wins.
