The Flutter Sleeve Dress Of My Dreams

The Flutter Sleeve Dress Of My Dreams

dress: J.Crew | bag: Tommy Hilfiger (c/o SKM) | sandals: Aldo | earrings: Twice As Nice “No white after Labor Day” is one of my favorite fashion rules to break. If September is still nice and gentle, than why not continue to wear light and white clothes while we still can? We were blessed with a few beautiful Indian Summer days last week and I took full advantage of the warm temperatures to wear all my favorite summer dresses one more time before. This pretty…

Basket Case

Basket Case

dress: J.Crew | bag: Dille & Kamille | sandals: Teva The basket bag trend. My gosh, did I think I was never ever ever going to carry one of those impractical straw things on my arm. But here I am, carrying one of those impractical straw things on my arm. And loving it to boot! Just like I have a favorite store for clothes (J.Crew alllll the way), I also have a favorite store for house-bits-i-don’t-really-need, Dille & Kamille. Everything they sell is well-made, …

My Cup Of Tea

My Cup Of Tea

blouse: Whistles | trousers: J.Crew | bag: Kate Spade | loafers: Sacha (c/o) | Coffee: Vanilla latte …Not that I ever drink tea. I’m a coffee girl by heart. Always have been, too. There’s an infamous family story about six-year-old me at a cafe with my mom and grandmother and it involves coffee. Most of my childhood memories involve coffee in some way. When I was young we’d visit my grandmother every Sunday for lunch and share coffee and cookies afterwards. We’d do …

How To Wear Sweatpants To Work

How To Wear Sweatpants To Work

pants: Scapa | blouse: Comptoirs des Cottoniers | bag: Kipling (c/o) | shoes: Aldo Confession time: I wear sweatpants to the office. I have done so repeatedly. And I will do it again. I work in the public sector and meet with citizens every day, but my workplace is definitely far from the classic corporate office. When I wear a dress I get asked who’s wedding I’m off to and pencil skirts might as well be coil tubes in the eyes of my colleagues (they&…

Greek Goddess

Greek Goddess

dress: Scapa | shoes: Aldo | bag: Tommy Hilfiger (c/o – SKM) Tall, skinny, long-legged, local record holder in quick-walking. You can call me a lot of things, but one thing that I’ve never been is elegant. From my childhood on I’ve been told that I have the agility of a plank. A tall, thick, hardwood plank. The kind of plank that doesn’t bend unless you saw it in half. Yep, that’s me! I’ve always admired the souplesse of a ballerina, the …

Peplum & Lace

Peplum & Lace

top: J.Crew | jeans: Lee Jeans | shoes: Aldo | handbag: Michael Kors | earrings: Oasis Instead of watching videos on YouTube all day, I thought I’d log into WordPress and write a new blog post today. Lately I haven’t been “feeling” the whole writing-thing. You may have noticed that my last few posts have been significantly shorter and lacking personality. In my last few posts I wrote a wretched paragraph about the outfit I was wearing in the pictures and clicked “publish” before thinking…

My Graduation Outfit

My Graduation Outfit

dress: Ralph Lauren | shoes: Aldo | bag: Michael Kors I am bad at sharing themed blog post. I’ve done a Christmas post maybe once or twice in eight years and every other Holiday has never gotten significant attention on my blog. I even forget to write something about my birthday most years. And that’s why it should come as no surprise that today I am sharing my graduation dress. I graduated one and a half years ago. I didn’t do much better when …

An Obsession With Blue & White Stripes

An Obsession With Blue & White Stripes

top: Primark | Jeans: Lee | bag: Tommy Hilfiger (c/o SKM) | sandals: Aldo So. This outfit is kinda similar to my last one: a pair of white jeans combined with a white and blue striped top. I need to plan my outfit shoots better, haha. Or find some fresh color combinations to wear, because I’ve had this thing for white and blue stripes all through Spring and into Summer and it’s kind of an obsession. I bought a beautiful striped midi-skirt from Compoirs Des&…

The Summer Of the Off-Shoulder Trend

The Summer Of the Off-Shoulder Trend

top: H&M | jeans: Lee Jeans | shoes: Aldo | bag: Sacha (c/o) The Off-shoulder trend made a comeback in 2016 and one year later it is still one of the fashion biggest trends to embrace! I must admit that it took me a while to get on with the off-shoulder style, because it isn’t easy to find items that you love and that are comfortable at the same time. Last summer I found a silk-y off-shoulder top from River Island, but it is a&…

The Prettiest MaiMai Sneakers

The Prettiest MaiMai Sneakers

sneakers: MaiMai | jeans: Levis | shirt: Primark | bag: Michael Kors I was known to overdress most of the time and to never wear sneakers. Ever. I wore a lot of dresses and I paired heels with those almost every single day. Things changed after I injured my knee last year. The doc noticed that my feet have a high arch and that the shoes I was typically wearing at the time were not supporting my feet right and were also not helping the healing…
