The Prettiest Mules Under €50

The Prettiest Mules Under €50

Strange things have happened this weekend. I, master skeptic of all nineties trends, have bought a pair of culottes. Before you all go and think I bought a cutesy pastel colored pair with floral print: hold your horses. I have my limits. Like one would expect of a basic chick like myself, I chose basic black culottes avec front pleat (from H&M, only €45!). After shopping a bright pink blazer, candy pink sweater and even pastel things last month I thought it was about …

If the shoe fits, wear it

If the shoe fits, wear it

It’s currently 19:45 and it’s still light outside. The light is as bright as it would be on an average afternoon in the middle of Winter. In early Spring I always realize just how weak the sun actually is in the Winter. This year for the first time I’ve felt the effect of daylight savings. My mood is lifted and I’m ready for new things. I’ve also been enjoying the extra daylight to the fullest with trips to the local ice …

Light Check Blazer for Spring

Light Check Blazer for Spring

These photos might not show it well, but Spring has arrived! I’m fully enjoying the first signs of the new season. Daffodils are popping up everywhere, squirrels are running around our yard and doves are busy building nests in the trees surrounding our house. I love feeling the warmer breeze when I step outside in the morning and the scent freshly mowed lawns when I return home from work. Spring is heavenly! With the changing seasons also comes a change in my wardrobe. I …

The Best Cardigan Outfit

The Best Cardigan Outfit

Oh, hello there! Long time no see, my friends! I’ve been travelling a lot the past few weeks and have taken a break from social media, so I haven’t been online very much. While I was away I rediscovered the wonderful world of Netflix and actually managed to do some chores around the house. Now that my mind has calmed down, I feel like it’s time to kick some life back into this blog. I’m starting back up with an easy …

A little wish list for Spring

A little wish list for Spring

I’m done with dark colored clothes. I’m done with the static electricity that my wool knits cause when they rub against the polyester lining of my winter coat. I’m done with bomb cyclones and polar vortexes, however cool they may sound (pun intend). I never though I’d say this, but I am longing for the scorching 44°C we had in Sevilla last summer. I am that done with winter. A few days ago I found myself scrolling through the new arrivals …

Leftovers from last Fall

Leftovers from last Fall

I recently bought a new computer and while I was transferring my files, I stumbled upon a series of outfit photos that I never found their way to the blog. The photos were taken during a lovely walk in K’s hometown last Fall. We both grew up on the countryside and moved to the city for our studies in our early twenties. We returned to our roots after graduation, but realized that we had sold our hearts to the city so we moved back …

LÕU.YETU x l’Occitane

If you look closely at my outfit photos you’ll notice that I’m wearing a small silver ring in almost all of the photos. I received it as a gift from my boyfriend when we were dating for 2,5 years. As soon as it slipped on my finger I knew the high days of my collection of fantasy rings were over. For 6 years, that small silver ring was the only one I liked to wear. Recently you can spot me with a different set of&…

Timeless

Timeless

Confession: this was one of the most awkward shoots in my history as a fashion blogger. For reals. It’s been a long time since I felt so uncomfortable while being out and about doing, you know, “the blogger thing”. I had been wanting to shoot in front of this building for a while A) because it’s a true beauty and B) because they decorated the windows with pieces of gold foil for the Holidays and that just looked really cute. The only downside …

Happy 9th Birthday to The Ginger Diaries!

Happy 9th Birthday to The Ginger Diaries!

Oh, hello 2018! You came a little faster than expected, haha. I hope you guys all had a lovely end of the year and happy Holidays! On January 1st The Ginger Diaries turned 9 years old. Nine years. If my blog was a child it’d be in 3rd grade now and could learn how to write itself! The more I think about that, the more weird I feel. Nine years. HOLY COW! I started this blog on a whim. Without a content plan, without goals,…

2017 Outfit Recap

2017 Outfit Recap

Tired of annual recaps yet? Bad luck, because here’s mine! I started writing The Ginger Diaries on 01/01/2009. That makes this blog 8 years old. 8 years, wow. So, what did I wear during my 8th year as a fashion blogger? Well, lots of white apparently. And the same pair of sandals in almost  every single outfit post, haha. I also notice a very expensive pair of cobalt blue pants that I remember having again because of this blog post. Let’s take a walk down…
