Premium and Seek Berlin

You probably already saw some photos on my Instagram feed from when I was in Berlin to visit the Premium and Seek fashion fair. Here are a few photos from the general area in Seek berlin which was much more fashion forward and showing more interesting, contemporary brands compared to the Premium fair.

When eating a burger and some fries the evening of our arrival we met two kind men that are working for the Danish brand Kaibosh specialized in [sun]glasses. It is a brand that has a completely different philosophy than other optical brands. They believe that one should have multiple glasses that complement your carefully curated looks, instead of one pair that doesn't go with all your looks. For instance when you are wearing a boyish look you should wear a pair of glasses that rounds off the look.

As they say themselves: "Now you can have a high quality pair of trend-setting prescription glasses or sunglasses for the same price as a pair of jeans". Browsing through their website will show you that they carry many different styles, there is something for everyone. And for those that cannot decide upon a pair in the morning they also have two-way glasses that you can alter throughout the day. Those glasses were also at the Seek fair and were amazing, how cool is it that you can wear your glasses in two ways?! Definitely fashion-forward! xx


Summer inspiration from COS Magazine

With the rainy weather we have now I'm in desperate need of some summer inspiration. From mid-August I will have my holidays for two weeks and my summer mood is ruined due to the current 'weather situation' we have here in Holland. I thought what is better than looking for some summer inspiration online and sharing it with you. So here you go, beautiful images straight from the COS lookbook.

I guess I will start making a wishlist of holiday essentials now. Are you already in the summer mood? xx


Lush Greens

Another look for you guys, from when I was walking the dog at my parents in law. I brought my camera and Mart took some quick outfit photos. I was wearing one of my favorite silk shirts (yes with bears on it) and my new skinny jeans from Acne. Really love these new trousers, it has been a long time since I had jeans that are so skinny. I normally go for slim fitted jeans, but every now and then it's time for a change and I have to admit that I'm surprised that I like them so much. Definitely a good addition to my denim collection!

With this unpredictable summer weather I never really know what kind of shoes I should wear. I find myself choosing lace-ups more and more lately, because I can wear them without socks and if it is going to rain I will keep my feet dry ;-) After a long walk I had to bring my shoes to the shoemaker to get some new soles, certainly not the best shoes for walking in the woods haha. xx

Leather bags from Mallin Gross

When I was in Berlin I went to visit the Premium fashion fair. There I came across a new luxury leather brand called Mallin Gross. Loved the quality of the bags and the fact that they all have silver hardware, also everything is nicely lined with cotton. It's a German brand and the bags are made by skilled Italian artisians of the best Italian leathers.

Still thinking about that backpack! xx


Lika Mimika metallic leather espadrilles

Well hello new summer shoes! Sold old sandals I don't wear often enough and ordered a new pair of summer shoes. These classic leather espadrilles are a welcome addition to my collection of booties and sandals, finally something in-between.

These silver metallic beauties are from the German brand Lika Mimika and are handmade in Spain. I really like the metallic leather and even though they are really really shiny I think I will wear them a lot. Do you like them? xx


When in Berlin

We took some outfit photos last thursday in Berlin. I was wearing my new Acne denim, a pair of black leather Clarks, a striped shirt and my favorite cropped leather jacket. The weather was surprisingly cold compared to the 30 something temperatures we had in Holland. What I love about Berlin is that there are so many nice locations to take outfit photos,  I decided to have the U-bahn in the background. xx

New in: Acne Jeans

Hereby I want to confess my addiction to denims. Yes I bought new ones.. well I somehow needed new jeans since I got stuck to a fence with my favorite pair. So yeah I'm now sporting a new look with a tiny hole on my shinbone (totally weird place so it looks off). That doesn't look so good, so I decided to search for a good replacement. I ended up buying two. Sale just started at my favorite Arnhem store Humanoid and I bought these two with 50% discount!

Normally I buy the Acne Flex jeans which has a slim fit and mid rise waist, but this time I bought a black pair of the Acne Skin model - mid waist, skinny, slightly cropped - and a pair of the Pin model - high rise, skinny fit - in a gorgeous blue color. I'm really addicted to Acne Jeans, I have had three pair so far and with these new ones I have five pair of their amazing jeans, can really recommend them! Shop yours here:


New In: Ray Ban Erica

Hereby I present to you my new sunnies! Have wanted these for a long time and last week I got them as a present. So happy with them! I already have a beautiful pair of vintage Mulberry sunnies, but the brown color of them doesn't really go well with many outfits. I prefer black sunglasses, so here they are. It's the Ray Ban Erica model with a matte black frame and black tinted glasses. What do you think of them? xx


Blue Heels

What I was wearing earlier this week. As might be the case with more of you, the weather really makes me crazy. It is so hot that I really have no idea what to wear half of the time. Everything feels sticky and heavy when wearing. This is one of the looks that sort of was OK with the insane temperatures. What are your summer favorites? xx
