Fashion is everywhere

TIMELESS!

Tags: , ,

I guess essentially I am pretty timeless when it comes to my style and adding new additions to my wardrobe, though I tend to lean towards a funky little detail here and there.

TIMELESS!

CLASSIC WITH A TWIST

These Balenciaga pumps have been my go-to shoes for events lately. In one way they are super classic, but with a twist because of the ankle strap. And – not completely unimportant – they’re comfy too!

THE LAST CHAPTER

Tags: ,

Wooh, this sounds like a really dramatic blog post title now doesn’t it? Well, it is definitely not as dramatic as it sounds. It refers to the third and last chapter of Ace & Tate’s summer frames (remember the first and second chapter?). This one is all about a clean and minimalistic approach through the use of transparent acetate.

SKINNY SCARF

I might be a bit late to the game when it comes to the skinny scarf. You know, since David Bowie wore them in his Ziggy Stardust era in the early 70’s and Miuccia Prada told us they were back for Fall/Winter 2014 (the season that actually requires a big fat one, or at least where I am from). Fast forward to July 2015 and they have shashay’ed their way into my wardrobe.

SEEKING INSPIRATION

Tags:

While there are days that we spent almost entirely at the office, it can only be healthy to be out of office every now and then. Inspiration is everywhere and even though I have to admit that most of it comes from the internet (as literally everything can be found on the internet), I also like to regularly organize some sort of inspiration trip, to seek for stimuli elsewhere. Stimuli that are maybe a bit less obvious than what’s to be found on Instagram, Pinterest or even Google Images?

A WEEK IN GLASSES

Tags: ,

Amsterdam based eyewear brand Ace & Tate (you might remember their frames from this story?!) recently launched a second chapter of Summer frames called Reckless Summer and I have to admit it’s hard for me to not fall in love with a few of their frames every time they launch a new drop. Reckless Summer is all about bold and contrasting color ways in the form of three new frame designs – Capri, Cayman and Sebastian – in colors such as Cosmic Red and Bondi Blue. Names that do make you want to travel, what’s not to like? And so I took four of my favorites to places I have visited in the past two weeks and it looked a little something like this.

CUSTOM MADE DENIM

Tags: , , ,

Yep, here we go again. Another story about denim. But this time it’s a little bit different… Finding the ‘perfect’ (as in REALLY perfect) pair of jeans is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Or maybe even worse. There is just so much that needs to be right – color, fit, washing, etc., etc., etc. – and so much that can go wrong. Wearing the ‘wrong’ pair of jeans is like wearing an ill fitting bra. It just doesn’t look very good. But there’s obviously a lot of personal taste/preferences involved as well.

#SHADESOFCOACH

Tags: ,

A few weeks ago – on our first ‘ok for bare legs’ day of the year – I visited Haarlem to test drive my new Coach sunglasses (two pairs of them, to be exact) for a project called #ShadesofCoach. Haarlem is a littler and quieter version of Amsterdam and I would say that the best part about it is that it’s super close to the beach. During Summer time I tend to go there a lot. To get out of my own city and to soak up the sun. And it’s just a 15 minute train ride away.

MOM JEANS

Hello Monday! Let’s talk a little bit about my morning routine, now shall we? Be warned though, as it involves a lot of denim and an overload of coffee.
