• Meet ARKET

    After H&M, COS, Weekday, Monki and & Other Stories the H&M group has launched a new brand and it is screaming my name. Described as a modern-day market, ARKET sells products for women, men, children and the home in minimalist-looking stores. The stores each have a Pinterest-worthy looking cafe to take a break from shopping and enjoy a good espresso. ARKET can’t be compared to our standard H&M. I feel like the designs are much more intricate and of higher quality. The prices for clothing…

    Must-have Transition Pieces For Fall

    Must-have Transition Pieces For Fall

    dress: J.Crew | jean jacket: H&M | shoulder bag: Sacha (c/o) | shoes: Bensimon This weekend I found out that Starbucks has brought back their autumn flavors and to me that means fall has officially started! I’ve brought back my favorite plaid shirts, folded my sweaters and dusted off my ankle booties, but before I start sharing my favorite fall looks I wanted to write a post about transitioning my wardrobe. I’m not fully ready to give up on my …

    How To Wear White Jeans

    How To Wear White Jeans

    top: & Other Stories | white jeans: Lee Jeans | bag: Tommy Hilfiger (c/o SKM) | shoes: Aldo We’ve made it to the very last summer outfit of 2017. The. Very. Last. One. It’s a popular line on blogs these days, but seriously, how did summer go by so fast!? It feels as if time passes by faster and faster as I get older. I still have so many items on my summer to-do list, but the pop-up bars are closing and the days …

    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 …

    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 …

    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 …

    12 Reasons Why & Other Stories Is My Current Favorite Shop

    Oh dear lord, I have a confession to make. I’ve been trying hard to save my pennies, but I fear I am about to sin. I can’t help it. I’m in love. I was out and about in the city a while ago and decided to kill some time in the shops. I was looking for the perfect white blouse to pair with my skirt from Comptoirs des Cottoniers (see last outfit post!) and my search led me into &…

    Instagram: The 7 Things I Hate About You

    Instagram: The 7 Things I Hate About You

    Who remembers that Miley song, huh? Loooooong time ago. A lot has happened in the digital world since Seven Things came out in the year 2008. To me, the most influential change must have been the rise of popular social media. While platforms such as Blogger, Typepad, Tumblr and MySpace could be seen as social media avant la lettre, I believe it’s the rise of popular social media platforms that has really changed the course of digital content creation. It’s fair to …

    Yes, I 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 …

    The Dress That Makes Me Feel Like A Greek Goddess

    The Dress That Makes Me Feel Like A 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 …
