Current Wish List

Since I sold pretty much half of my wardrobe content, it's now time to start filling up the emptiness again. I made a wish list with some stuff I really wouldn't mind having in my closet. It contains pretty simple items, I think it's important to start with a couple of basic items and then build from there. Do you have any shopping routines like that?

From left to right:

1. Sunnies: ZARA, 2. White blazer: ZARA, 3. Clutch: Antik Batik, 4. Striped skirt: Bershka, 5. Bracelet: H&M Conscious, 6. Sandals: ZARA, 7. BF Jeans: Rag&Bone, 8. Wrap skirt: Vila, 9. Poster: Esty 


Wild at Heart

Channeling my wild side today: wearing leopard trousers. Anything leopard can be rather tricky when it comes to matching it with other items, so I kept the rest of the outfit a bit plain. Luckily I threw over a huge coat, 'cause the moment I stepped out the door this morning, it started raining like crazy again. The weather seems to be a weird mix of sun, wind and rain (or hail, yikes!) all at the same time lately. Hopefully it will be back to all sunshine soon!

Monday Inspiration

After weekends, come Mondays. Who ever invented that?! We better just make the best of it, and so I'm kicking off this new week with a fresh inspiration post. It's kinda getaway inspired, I must admit that I am really looking forward to the summer holidays! Especially since it's pouring outside at the moment. I haven't made up my mind yet on where to go, but I bet me and the bf will be brainstorming about that soon! What about you, have you made any crazy Summer plans yet?
For now, enjoy your week!



Pencil skirts & leather jackets

When the weather is still a little crisp, but I do want to wear a skirt or at least go out barelegged, I usually throw over a (leather) jacket. Such as this one, which is my current favorite. I have a lot of coats and jackets, simply because I think layering is the perfect solution to in-between weather. Plus, you can never really go wrong with a leather jacket, can you? ;)
P.S. I hope you like these pictures! I am trying out different locations for future shoots, so stay tuned for more!

Creative work spaces

As a blogger, I inevitably spend a lot of time behind a desk. So, I might as well make it a stylish and creative place, non? Images of (home) offices have been piling up on my computer's "inspiration / interior" folder lately, and I selected a few to share with you. One of the things I find majorly important is that my desk appears organized at all times. It can be a mess, as long as it's an organized one. It can drive me absolutely mad if I need something that seems to be vaporized, and is nowhere to be found. That's why I usually only try to leave the necessities (this is where things usually go south, I mean, chocolates are a necessity too, right?) on my desk, and move all the rest to drawers etc. Tell me, what is your desk policy?

Casual & Cropped

Sometimes, I just don't feel like wearing heels at all and I much rather grab a pair of sneakers. So I did last Monday, keeping it casual with my converse and a simple crop top. I think Mondays are always best spent in a comfy attire, aren't they? Makes it a bit more bearable ;).

Pants: NewLook
Crop top: Only

One stylish pineapple

Pineapples are hot at the moment, so I thought it only fair that I'd share my new necklace with it. I've been looking for a nice letter pendant for a while, and now I found the perfect one. It's small, silver and I really like the shape of the letter. It's a T, because I liked that one just a bit better than a J and it's the first letter of my bf's name, so it is not completely random ;)





Shop my closet part deux

Since spring has arrived, I've been busy detoxing my wardrobe. As you might have already read in my previous outfit post, I try to be a bit more careful with what I buy and therefore I also need to be strict in what has to go and what can stay. Now that sounds much easier than it actually is. What can I say, I just like shopping ;)
Anyway, I ended up with yet another pile of stuff that needs to go, and I put it for sale on my Tictail shop. Most items are unworn or brand new with tags. Check it out!




Day & Night: The pencil skirt

I think pencil skirts would never really go out of fashion. At the moment they're a true trend an I can totally see why. A great versatile piece, which is easily dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. In this picture I show you how I'd wear this striped little number during the day (left) and during the night (right). Whenever it would be too chilly to walk out the door without a coat, I would probably go for a leather jacket to wear with the night look. I like wearing heels when I go out, but I don't want this look to become too serious. Therefore my silver heels with plexi straps would be a good choice. The day look probably speaks for itself: casual and easy, just the way I like it ;) Have a good weekend!



Ripped jeans & Silver heels

Since we had another week of beautiful weather, I could easily wear my new heels without my toes freezing off. So happy that spring decided to come early this year!
Whenever seasons change, I always feel the urge to get rid of the old stuff in my closet and fill it with brand new things. Although I probably would if my wallet let my, I try not to buy everything I like immediately. Somehow I always end up with stuff I do like, but just don't wear. Therefore I am a bit more careful nowadays and I even made a list with "to buy" stuff, which I have to stick to strictly. The heels and the trench I am wearing in these pictures were part of that, and I am extremely pleased with both. What are your shopping rituals for new seasons?
