Comfy coats, fluffy sweaters, big knits and furry sweats. I’m in love with the last photo, but the weather in the Netherlands won’t let me go bare legged in combination with these warm furry coats.
All black everything, including the nails. I’ve seen this black french manicure about a year ago at a merry mishap, and I couldn’t get it out of my head. Though I hadn’t tried it before. So when I got to the nail studio the other day, I gave it a chance. (Really, I’ve tried this at home, but I am so clumsy when it comes to nail art). It turned out pretty well! A matte top coat is added to avoid shiny tips. What do you think? Yay or Nay?
Since I started blogging, I never took a real break. But last week forced me to do so. I think I catched 4 hours sleep a night. But I managed to get all school shit done! Such a relieve! I can’t wait for this summer, when I get to graduate and leave school behind. I really have no clue on what to do next, but I’ll figure that out later. To keep myself motivated I spoiled myself a bit with these statement earrings from River Island. Big, transparent, black, just how I like my jewelry to be like. I’m back to blogging. How are you doing guys?

24 hours offline was an experiment, at which I was very conscious about what I did and didn’t do online that day. The upcoming week will have some similarity with that. Next friday is my D-day. Read: Deadline day. The day I have to finish all my school assignments and resits from the past 3 years. I can’t graduate this year if I don’t. That means I’ll have to spend every minute I have on school work (except a meeting for a possible internship in Amsterdam, fingers crossed). I expect a lot of offline minutes the next 120 hours.

Whenever it’s chunky, it’s great. Like chunky boots or
in this case chunky knits. As I missed jumping along on the Isabel Marant bandwagon (and it’s lovely big knits), due to my offline experiment, I figured I might treat myself with this one. Grey, oversized, chunky and comfortable. Just the way I like it.
Besides the beauty of jewelry I love to hear the story behind them. Was it a gift? Is it from your grandmother or great great aunt? Accessories or clothing with a story are a tad more interesting to wear than rather beautiful pieces (which is never wrong). The ones above? As a little kid I always shared BF-necklaces with my best friend. My weakness at the time? I was terrible in organizing, which resulted in lost jewelry. After years of new best friend necklaces and bracelets, the only thing I kept was this strong best friend relationship, which I luckily didn’t lose! As I’m older and way more organized and careful with my accessories I found it was the right time to get ourselves a new one. This time to stay! It resulted in this tiny rose golden necklace with a transparent glass heart. This one is here to stay!
I got myself this silver origami bird necklace a few year ago. I can’t remember where I’ve bought this one, I’m thinking of the Urban Outfitters in Antwerp. Why an origami bird? Because I always folded these little paper creatures whenever I had a square piece of paper around. Napkins at restaurants, wrappers of sweets, pages from exercise books at school; they always transformed in paper birds. You understand why I’d to take this one home with me.
