Blogging On The Bright Side

Blogging On The Bright Side

I’ve been working at my new job for a solid five months now and I still haven’t found a blogging schedule that fits my new life as an adult. Add to that the house we bought and all the work that goes into planning the renovations and you get me… forgetting that I even have a blog. I don’t know what just happened, but I completely forgot to plan some much needed blog-time this weekend. Or any me-time …

AD | Testing the SKM “Try-Outfit” Service

AD | Testing the SKM “Try-Outfit” Service

When I was younger, shopping was my hobby, my therapy, my life. I was always on the High Street. If you needed me on a Saturday afternoon you could bet you’d find me in the local H&M, thinking up outfits I wasn’t able to afford with my allowance. Searching endlessly through the racks, I knew exactly what stores carried what items and I quickly learned what stores I liked and what places I didn’t have to waste …

My New Fall Booties

My New Fall Booties

Fall fashion and me is one big love story. Layers, warm colors, thick knitwear, scarfs, flannel shirts, booties… . What’s not to like!? Since I was finishing my degree in uni in the first semester last year, I didn’t have the funds to treat myself to new fall footwear. I wore the two pairs of boots that I had to death and even braved the cold with my airy Nikes sometimes to spare the boots. I took them out of storage …

Nineties Nightmares

Nineties Nightmares

The nineties trends just won’t go away, do they? I must say that I sometimes still suffer from nightmares about that first round of plastic chokers, buffalo sneakers and band tees that I got to live through when I was a kid. I was always a little behind when it came to fashion must-haves back then. Mostly because I was more into trading Pokémon cards than fashion at that time, although I do remember vividly how we got chokers out of …

My New Favorite Jacket

My New Favorite Jacket

I heard that shooting in the middle of the street is cool now, so we tried it. Other than having even more people stare at us than usual, we had good fun. Every shoot with my friend K is loads of fun really. We goof around a lot and accidentally end up with a few good shots that I can use for the blog. In case you are interested in how this shoot went down, I will happily paint the picture for you! She …

Indian Summer Feelings

Indian Summer Feelings

Life has been a whirling roller coaster these past two weeks and I am feeling completely drained. In the mess that is my schedule these days I completely forgot to get this blog post ready for Monday. So, here we are, on Wednesday and without much inspiration to write. Last weekend Eline and I took time to go shooting for our blogs. After one shoot we got distracted by ice cream and just let it be. The week before we had also taken an …

Don’t Sugarcoat It

Don’t Sugarcoat It

While I had been shopping my wish-listed items for the upcoming fall season to my hearts content, Mother Nature decided it was time for a heat wave. Heat waves only mean two things to me: sunburns and sweat. Those two things happen to not look good in outfit photos, so that explains my absence from my blog and social media last week. I was also feeling a little under the weather (that’s punny) due to a little sickness, nervousness about new tasks …

My Accidental Capsule Wardrobe

My Accidental Capsule Wardrobe

8:30 PM and I’m standing on the Roosevelt square with some good old Volbeat songs zooming in my ears, waiting for my bus to come. I think this is the first time I’m writing a blog post on the go! We went out to diner with work tonight and that means typing my blog post on my phone tonight. And I suck at typing on this thing. I’ve been talking about my wardrobe purge for weeks on end now, but …

A Zara Affair

A Zara Affair

Zara trousers have a tendency to break my heart. It all started with a floral pair two years ago and now I find myself heartbroken again over these navy trousers. Our story started out well, with these pants and I being inseparable when I bought them in May. I never knew I was missing elegant, office-prove navy trousers in my life. They quickly became best wardrobe friends with my Sperry tops-siders and looked mighty fine with most of my shirts and sweaters. I had tens&…

An Easy Weekend Look

An Easy Weekend Look

I’m writing this post quickly between dinner and laundry. I think my washing machine will only be a few more minutes so I’m going to keep this short and sweet. The days have been long and busy lately, with little time to sit down quietly and read blogs, keep up with YouTube or write my own blog posts. I feel like I’m losing my head in the disorderly mess that my life is right now. Fingers crossed I feel …

Little White Lace Dress

Little White Lace Dress

As much as I love a good (little) black dress or LBD, in summer it’s all about little white dresses. I have a love/hate relationship with them. I love the way my hair looks against white, but I hate how it accentuates the blue and purple tones in my fair skin. My brother always makes fun of me when I’m wearing a white dress and even my mom makes one or two jokes about ghosts when she sees me coming. …
