I’ve talked about many times before, but as I get older I tend to go more and more for classic wardrobe pieces. Today it seams like I’ve put them all together. A classic jeans jacket, check. A striped tee/sweater or dress in this case, check. Strappy sandals (nude or black) check. A classic Chanel bag, double check! Well a men’s inspired watch also always does the trick when it comes to classic jewelry. Love how you can’t go wrong with staples like these.

A TRAVEL CLASSIC

One day in the past year I came to realize that I was in desperate need of a large travel bag. Always putting my handbags to the test when traveling. Imagine my Prada tote overflowing with stuff when I leave for any kind of destination, almost to point of total destruction. Well, a worn out Prada tote was never my style so after the last time I promised myself never to do this again and get my self a descent travel bag. So after some doing my research, which for me is about 50% of the total fun when buying a new investment, I came to the conclusion that all the real travel experts travel with a set of Louis Vuitton for decades now. Well a whole travel set of Louis Vuitton is definitely on my list, the list called Want!!! but definitely not going to happen any time soon!, but he you got to start somewhere. So I thought this Neverfull was going the be the perfect starting point and I can perfectly test it in about two weeks when I leave for a well deserved holiday to the Caribbean. So Neverfull, well, I don’t know if that true when you travel with me but I’m sure gonna look good carrying it.

WHITE AND BLACK SPOTTED

White jeans never fail, style wise, but the only problem I always have is that they get dirty so damn easily. Well, I think I found the cure for that with these spotted jeans. Off course the do get dirty but it doesn’t show so quickly. And combined with black you can never go wrong. Already my favorite pants of the summer. Halleluja!

In about four weeks I’m leaving for an early summer get a way to the beautiful island of Curaçao. You can only imagine how excited I am and that’s exactly why I have started a sort of a countdown. From this week on I’m on the hunt for the perfect islands wardrobe. I’m will be digging out my closet, take notes from previous holiday pictures, shopping and flipping trough magazines to gather the perfect holiday wardrobe. One thing that I’m already sure about is that I’m sticking to my color palette packing like I did last year when we visited Santorini. A palette of whites, black, blue and turquoise is all that will be allowed in my suitcase. This makes it so much more easier to make new combination on the spot when I don’t have my whole closet to my disposal.

These gorgeous Dolce & Gabbana Belucci slingbacks definitely earned their spot in my suitcase last year so they will for certain join me this year. The white skirt is also a good option and a sweater to keep me warm at night or on the plane never fails to. Let the suitcase diaries start!

THE SUMMER OF FLATS

One thing I am very sure about now is that this is the summer of flats. I have been buying more flats than heels lately and that says a lot about a avid heels wearer like myself. I, the one who sees flats as a necessity on days that I have to walk a lot or stand most of time (and sometimes I do wear heels on one of those accasions only to be very sorry later on, I guess you also know the feeling) is now wearing them with joy and really loving it. Off course it’s also great for a shoe lover like myself to have broaden my horizon, a lot more shoes that match my requirements now. Flat shoes it is!

INTERIOR UPDATE

Every now and then, mostly when fall or spring starts, I get the desperate urge to change my whole interior. In the fall I like things to be cozy and warm and in spring I want it all to be fresh and clean. All very natural off course and like my closet my interior is ever evolving. Besides a few real design pieces I like to update it every now and then with some more affordable stuff like pillow covers from H&M. So last weekend we went to another favorite Swedisch store of mine, Ikea. Well, thank god for the Swedisch because when you look besides all the cheap stuff they also have a lot of good stuff. Like the “Stockholm” line for example. A bit more expensive then the rest but also a whole lot more design for your money’s worth.

We bought this beautiful coffee table from the Stockholm line and a open cabinet with glass. And now it’all at it’s place I really feel like this is what we were missing all along. I love how some little adjustments can give such a  new vibe to the whole room.  I’m really satisfied for now, at least untill next fall.

PATCHES

As a denim designer and lover I’m always on the hunt for a new pair to add to my collection or to be inspired by. My latest score is this pair with patches from H&M. Somehow they always fit me perfectly and I love how they are always on top of the trends combined with a very affordable price. To create some balance I always combine pair of statement jeans like this with some modern classics like these simple strappy heels and a men’s shirt. And now that spring has officially arrived I wanted to wear my fur stola for one last time, I love how it brings just a bit of fun in all of my outfits. For now I hope I don’t need it anymore to keep me warm and that the sun will take over from here. I’m ready!

THE BLACK BLAZER

Ever in search of the perfect black blazer I stumbled upon this one at Zara. Almost matching all off my requirements and helped by the fact that my old one really needs a stand in every now and then, I decided to purchase this one. Only missing a button and matching hole at the front closure, which is something that can be fixed, if I ever wanted to. Worn with a white t-shirt and black skinny’s always a winner.

Since a season or 2 Zara is selling a collection called Studio. And since last year it has it’s own category on the webshop which is now the first category I check out after New In. I think everyone of you knows my preference for Zara and this Studio line only made it worse haha. My latest score is this perfect LBD, ideal of both summer and winter and perfect for the in-between weather like this early spring. I’m always a big fan of 3/4 sleeves, a little split never hurts and somehow I prefer a round neckline. And yep, this dress has all of that, the touch of blue compliment it all off. So when it comes to Zara from now, remember to check out their Studio line.
