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 …

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, …

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 the souplesse of a ballerina, the leniency of a yogi, the flexibility of a gymnast. …

Peplum & Lace

top: J.Crew | jeans: Lee Jeans | shoes: Aldo | handbag: Michael Kors | earrings: Oasis Instead of watching videos on YouTube all day, I thought I’d log into WordPress and write a new blog post today. Lately I haven’t been “feeling” the whole writing-thing. You may have noticed that my last few posts have been significantly shorter and lacking personality. In my last few posts I wrote a wretched paragraph about the outfit I was wearing in the pictures and clicked “publish” before thinking about what I was actually publishing. Those posts are awful&…
