Black Shoes

What should every girl need in her closet? Black leather shoes, lots of them. Thus I decided to show you guys my favourite ones and tell a bit more about each pair. All black, all leather, yet completely different. Here we go..

1. Next patent leather ankle booties. These boots are the ones I wear when my outfit seems a bit basic. Shiny black with a fun length and sturdy block heel always is a good idea.
2. Clarks. Desert boots are great and go with jeans, leather leggings and skirts, so the ultimate basic.
3. Fred de la Bretoniere lace-ups. Black lace-ups are easily worn with every outfit, but my ultimate favourite combination is with suit pants, as seen here.
4. Acne booties, 12 cm sturdy heels in which you can walk all day. Gotta love Acne booties! In addition they are just beautiful because of the buttery leather and nice cut
5. Topshop fringed loafers. Bought these ones a while ago but since the weather is quite terrible I haven't had the chance to wear them yet. However they are obviously great for spring and summer, let's just hope that they aren't only good looking but that they are comfy as well.
6. Deena & Ozzy nubuck leather chelsea booties. Love the heel height and the matte black leather, they are quite anonymous (can you say that about shoes?), so if you have a nice top, jacket or skirt they don't steal the show. 

What do you think? What kind of shoes are essential for you? xx



During New Year I was in Aarhus again!! Love the architecture and the colorful houses in this city. It is the second city in Denmark and is not only amazing because of its looks...

It is especially great because all the Scandinavian brands have concept stores in the centre! They sell every brand you might need in your closet (such as COS, Samsøe Samsøe, Won Hundred, & Other Stories, Weekday, by Malene Birger, Minimum, ADPT., Wood Wood and HAY). Have any of you ever been to Aarhus? xx


All black

My Calvins

Last week I was in Aarhus, Denmark, to work on my graduation project voor Artez and simultaneously to be able to spend New Years in another country (win-win). Another bonus was the fact that sale season had just started and that the Danes are quite generous with their sale percentages, in comparison to the Dutch that is (win-win-win?). Therefore it was just impossible to leave without bringing this beautiful dark-grey lacy Calvin Klein set home with me.

Do you like #mycalvins? What kind of underwear is your favourite? xx


Outfit Recap 2015

Above you can find a recap of all the outfits I posted in 2015, hope to be able to post more frequently this year. I'm so tremendously busy with both masters and work that I find it hard to make time to take photos and obviously I'm also depending on others that are willing to take photos ;-) Still I hope you enjoyed my looks and continue to follow me throughout the months to come. Anyways, thanks for being part of this journey, wish you all the best for the coming year!! 

Hope mine includes even more traveling; in 2015 I visited: Berlin (twice), Paris (twice), Brussels, Kiel, Aarhus (twice), Oslo, Copenhagen, Göteborg + a two week road trip through Scandinavia.

Do you have any plans for 2016? xx


Earth Alchemy Factory - Atelier NL

During the Dutch Design Week I went to the Earth Alchemy Factory in the Bergmann kerk. Through this project Atelier NL "invites people to explore the world by learning and making as a community."

In the church they have their workplace in which they transform elements of the earth (e.g. sand and clay) into all kinds of items. For example, you can buy little bowls with baked sand in it, which in many cases turned into glass. There are also tiles in many earth colors, representing clay from different places in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Germany. The clay is also used for ceramics. The paint samples you can see are made of different kinds of soil.

In sum, it is a great project that shows you all the things you can do with simple natural materials. xx


Autumn Sun

Sorry for the lack of updates, I'm really busy lately! Doing two masters while also working parttime turns out to be rather time-consuming ;-) Plus blogging is getting harder because it is getting dark quite early nowadays which makes it hard to take photos. Luckily - after some rainy weeks - we've had some lovely sunny weather these past days so I managed to take some outfit photos for you. xx
