We need this! Silver feet

25 Feb

The past weekend was amazing weather-wise. On Saturday we could visit the farmers market without our umbrellas and we even took a really long walk in the woods on Sunday morning. We know this is just an illusion of  Spring ( that will arrive… eventually), but we can’t help but dreaming about warmer nights, longer days and sipping drinks al fresco. And for that you need new shoes. Everybody knows that.
This season we would love to wear metallic silver shoes. They go with absolutely everything and they add a nice sparkle even to your more casual outfits.

1. Leather pumps by Zara. These are extra uncomfortable. I’m sure about that. But they would be the perfect addition to your working wardrobe this Spring.

2, 3 & 4. JCrew  always gets it right. Even more in the shoe department. I love these three pairs. I couldn’t choose just one. Maybe number 3?

5. Cute shoes for cute dresses by Asos. I think Alexa Chung would love these.

6.  And how cool are these loafers?

We need this! Basics & classics

19 Feb


We all want Spring to be around the corner (check our Instagram and you’ll see a suspicious amount of flower pictures), but the truth is that we still have a couple of months of Winter left. At least in the North of Europe, where we live. That’s why I’m still thinking about adding a couple of nice and timeless pieces to my Winter wardrobe.
I love trends, but I just can’t help but leaning towards basic and classic pieces. This Winter I’ve been looking for a nice camel coat and some comfortable pointy pumps to add a little bit of sobriety and temperance to my closet. They are perfect for work, they can be dressed up or down and they make you look like a million dollars.

1. Masculine camel coat by Joseph. Over the shoulders tren anyone?

2. Cashmere boyfriend sweater by JCrew. It just goes with everything.

3. The most beautiful camel coat by Max Mara. I’m in love!

4. Cute Kitten heel pumps by Zara.

5. Leo print pointy pumps by JCrew. Perfection

6. Black pumps by Gianvito Rossi. The epitome of the investment piece.

Our love is deeper everyday

29 Jan


No, I’m not talking about us and the upcoming Saint Valentine fuss. I’m talking about JCrew. You know we love it. We adore it. Even our wedding dresses were JCrew. But after visiting their store on Regent Street in London we are just head over heels.

In my suitcase: the velvet blazer

29 Nov

Velvet Blazers

This month is going to be all about series! Apart from our Xmas series, we will be adding a weekly post about those items that we think should be in your suitcase this holidays.

Lets start with an old classic: the velvet blazer. This piece will dress up a simple jeans and white shirt look, it can be the perfect way to warm up your party outfits and adds a lovely masculine touch that makes every girl look cooler. It’s like the grown up fancy sister of the leather jacket!

1. Black velvet and black satin equals elegant and super sexy party look. Pair it with a pencil skirt or sharply cut pants.

2. If you are looking for comfort and a boho party look try this blazer together with an embroidered vintage top and harem pants. Add a lovely strappy sandal to achieve that festive look.

3. This is the basic version. Perfect with jeans, shirt and a pair of loafers. Great for family lunches and Christmas shopping sprees.
Black velvet and black satin equals elegant and super sexy party look. Pair it with a pencil skirt or sharply cut pants.

4. Splurge in a classic piece that will last forever, like this midnight blue blazer. The colour is amazing and it will make you look like a million dollars!

5.  For a casual vibe, wear this printed velvet blazer with and a knit sweater underneath, skinny jeans and some good tan leather boots. Or Converse/Supergas if you are lucky and you don’t spend your holidays in a very cold place. If that’s the case: we really envy you!

We need this! Miu Miu Swimsuit

19 Jun


Swimsuits are cool. They hide super white bellies, they make you look sophisticated and they can be used as nice tops during Summer. I recently saw this fantastic number from Miu Miu and instantly fell in love.
It has a lovely retro vibe, a really flattering colour and a cute bow on it that will draw all the attention making your weak spots invisible. You can buy it here!

What do you think? Do you like one-pieces or do you prefer bikinis? If you are like me and prefer swimsuits, you might like this striped number from Jcrew, this black and white beauty from Etam or this simple yet beautiful piece form Eres.
