Teva Original Summer

Teva Original Summer

It’s late. Seven past nine in the evening. K’s on the couch asking if I want to join him and watch some random Netflix things. He has ice cream too. I should probably get over there, but first I want to write a little here. I haven’t been around much in August and I really want to share about my new shoes. I talk a lot about shoes lately, don’t I? Teva sandals. I know, I know&…

Party In The Back

Party In The Back

I can’t really tell if it was Revenge, my profound love for J.Crew or Spencer Hastings wardrobe on PLL that got me into the whole preppy look. What I do know is that I am now the very happy owner of the most preppy shoes out there. Well, they rank to the top most preppy shoes together with Hunter rain boots. I have been coming back to Sperry Top-Siders for a couple of years, but eventually always preferred spending my money on …

Sometimes Basic & Easy Is Best

Sometimes Basic & Easy Is Best

Every style guide will tell you that you need a black blazer and indeed: it is a good basic. But I have big trouble finding the perfect one. I got mine from Mango a couple of years ago to replace the cheap and ill-fitting one I had from Forever21. At first I was really happy with my purchase, but then it was quickly thrown out of my jacket-rotation. I don’t know guys. I feel really uncomfortable when I wear it, even though it …

Tile Print Lovin’

Tile Print Lovin’

Another one of those shoots were everything went wrong. We encountered all the typical #bloggerproblems and I eventually ended up with exactly 11 photos that worked out for this blog post. I was holding my hair up in about 5 of them, so … yeah… . Not my favorite photos, but definitely one of my favorite outfits! This tile print top is a new favorite and is actually an off-shoulder top. When worn on-shoulders it falls like a cropped top that works nicely with high-waisted…

With a Little Bit Of Sass

With a Little Bit Of Sass

This slightly flared red mini-dress debuted on the blog this Winter and is now proving to be an all-rounder when it comes to the seasons. I love this thing! The red color fits nicely with my tan Michael Kors and sandals plus the bright color does a great job at making my pale skin less notable. The dress is a little bit more revealing than what I’d usually wear and it makes me feel a little bit sassy when I wear it. The …

If You Can’t Go To The Palm Trees…

Long tome no see here on The Ginger Diaries! I haven’t found my rhythm back since school went out and we moved house. Life is hectic at the moment and I had so much things to take care of that I let my blog out of my sight. My boyfriend and I took a break from on Friday and decided to soak up some sun and go out for dinner. Before we headed out we went location spotting for the blog in our …

You’re From The Seventies, But I’m A Nineties Chick

You’re From The Seventies, But I’m A Nineties Chick

Being a kid from the early nineties, most of the current summer trends get the label “been there, done that”. I might not be ready to give some things another go, but there are some revivals that I have grown to appreciate. Bardot necklines are one of those. They are definitely not everyone’s cup of tea, but I fell in l-o-v-e when I saw this top in a haul video on YouTube (guilty pleasure!). When it went on sale a couple …

Oh the Flossy, Flossy

Oh the Flossy, Flossy

“Wear them gold and diamonds rings. All them things don’t mean a thing. Chaperons and limousines. Shopping for expensive things.“. Next to anything from Toto or Journey, Fergie’s ‘Glamorous’ has been one of the songs that defines my relationship with K. We spill out Ludacrises lines at least once a week and if we’re playing the latest GTA we’ll have Non-Stop POP FM on until it comes by. We love it. And so …

Off-Day

Off-Day

Some days you just don’t feel it. You want to re-create that outfit you wore to class  that week and are pretty excited about sharing it, but then you can’t think of a location and you just try wherever you are and have no clue how to move your body into any decent positions. Why am I biting my finger! Then when you upload the photos to your computer you find out your photographer cut your feet off in about …

Jump For My Love

Jump For My Love

And just like that, here comes the sunshine. We’re enjoying 25°C this week and me and my new bikini are ready for some studying in the sun. Goes to show that you should be careful what you wish for when you write blog posts on bikini shopping! Anyway, to this look. I bought a romper and a jumpsuit last week. I’m still unsure whether that was a crazy act or a good wardrobe update. I do know that the jumpsuit …

Great Minds Dress Alike (with Dress Your Life)

Great Minds Dress Alike (with Dress Your Life)

When a friend wears the same sweater as you and is also a blogger, posts like this must happen. The sweater is not a recent find. I bought it while shopping for an outfit to wear for our New Years Eve party with friends. I wanted something comfortable and chic but not a dress, and this sweater ticked all the boxes. When I got home from my shopping trip I posted a picture of my new wardrobe addition on SnapChat and I received an …
