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.

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!

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!

There’s just nothing better than black on black on black. In black and white. In Givenchy and Supreme.
Happy Thursday.

On basics and essentials

DSC_0252DSC_0256DSC_0079

If you’d ask me what the ultimate spring shoe is, not from just this spring, but every season – it would be a pair of white chucks. Goes with anything, is a sneaker (because we want to be active and outside in spring) and I can’t believe I didn’t have a pair until now, with my endless love for great basics. Now I do have to watch out sometimes not to confuse basics with essentials, because when I tried to convince someone the other day that leopard trousers were really a great basic anyone should own and he (maybe that was the problem) didn’t agree I realized that there’s definitely a difference between basics and essentials. Basics are items you do really need: the black leather jacket, the black skinny jeans, the white t-shirt, and so on. Essentials can change when your style, trends or even the season changes. Most of all, essentials are personal. Everyone has their own essentials, for me a pair of leopard trousers is an essential, for someone else it might be a red skirt or a pair of sliders (definitely an essential for this summer). You don’t have to own all the basics, nor all the essentials. But I do enjoy owning and wearing them more than just random items I like and than buy, which I don’t do very often anymore.
To make a long story short: here’s what I’m wearing today. The basics: white chucks and an oversized black knit (which to me are also essentials)/ the essentials: leopard trousers.
I know it’s a big of a vague story but that’s what was on my mind today – I hope it makes sense and I’ll do a post on my spring essentials later this week!
But not before I have a big surprise for you guys tomorrow ;)

Happy Tuesday!

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.
