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, pure and pretty and when they came out with new straw bags and totes …

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 the same at my great-grandmothers house too every once in …

12 Reasons Why & Other Stories Is My Current Favorite Shop

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 & Other stories. A very dangerous path, so I learned. Their pre-fall collection is everything …

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 say that by 2010 the blogging world was somewhat swallowed up and not much spectacular was …

Yes, I Wear Sweatpants To Work

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 colleagues (they read my blog so I better be careful about what I write here, …
