A couple of days ago me and my friend Sam who runs the blog ilovejeans.com (Do check out her blog to find out EVERYTHING you want to know about denim such as new denim designers, the best brands, what style suits wich body shape and many other denim-related things.) had some errands to run in Bricklane here in London. One of the amazing thing with this area is all the street art and graffiti walls, perfect for bloggers as us who always try to find new backgrounds for an outfit post. I really love how the colors of the walls blend in perfectly with my outfit for the day.
Thank you Sam for snapping those photos of me!

London is getting cold, cold, cold. Luckily I purchased this suede coat earlier this summer (It got warm to quickly so I didn’t really get a chance to use it) and it sure helps now to have a longer jacket covering half of your body. It’s also very pretty and very autumn-color-like so it blends in well with the rest of nature (who doesn’t want to be one with nature?). A very good buy I must say as a suede coat is such a staple piece that you will keep forever. Well done Monki!

The ones who follows me on Instagram might already know that this Sunday I was at the yearly event Stylist magazine organized called Stylist Live. Overall it was a nice day to see new up and coming designers, listen to inspirational talks and just enjoying a day surrounded with creative people.
The main reson I was there was because of my friend Elina who showcased her jewelry brand Cocos Liberty among many other designers. She is such an inspirtion and I truly love the pieces she create, one little ring that I had my eyes on for a while actually sits on my pinky finger right now!

I have found two new loves. Red lips and hoodies. Preferably combined. It gives you the perfect casual meets chic kind-of-look. And yes, I love my heel loafers! I profit every moment to walk in open shoes before the season change and you have to cover every little piece of skin showing. The jeans are perfect, they might not be from the brand Vetements but they are pretty smashing anyway!
Now let’s get this week started!

I’m gonna be quite honest, I’m not your Dries van Noten kind of girl. Don’t get me wrong I think it’s a fabulous and very creative brand and when I look through the collections I really see art, but it just doesn’t happened very often that I think “I want to wear this”.
Meet Laura, she is one of those who can really pull of the brand. She has the sense of style to mix his pieces up without it looking to much despite all the patterns and details each piece carry. She really inspires me, and I love people who has their style and stick to it. In some things we agree in some things don’t when it comes to fashion. I would for example never have the idea of styling what she is wearing on the picturs above. When I saw her wearing it I thought to myself, WOW, she really has style, so I forced her out in the rain and snapped some photos! I thought it could be nice for a change to show someone else then me on the blog.
Todays tip, if you dont have a belt put a tie on it!

I’m definitely suffering from the gold-fever recently, and not just when it comes to jewelry. I want everything I wear to turn in to gold (literally). Above you will find my latest gold obsessions, which one is your favorite?

Let’s talk boots and jeans, together, and how when having the perfect ones they seem to make magic together. Boots and jeans is probably one of the most worn outfit combination ever, and I really get it because you never get bored of it and you can wear it to almost any occasion.
I have found my perfect match as you can see on the pictures above, my Patti jeans from Acne Studios (high wasted, cropped and not to skinny) and my boots from And Other Stories (comfy as they only have a kitten heel and with a pointy shape). I’m wearing it with a cardigan and tee above, but you can really pull off any sort of top with it, shirt, blouse, blazer, you get it, ANYTHING! I promise.

Giorgia Tordini is not only a creative director and co-founder of the brand The Attico but she also have an amazing style (check out her Instagram). I really like how she styles the look above, the color combo with the washed out denim and the rusty colored blouse combined with a pair of snake print heels, wow! If only I looked like that today.
Wishing you all a great Saturday!
I really love these series of picture above, the outfit goes so well with the environment and it just all make sense together.
Sometimes I forget that I actually own that Moschino belt above, I bought in Paris after signing a contract with my former employer Stella McCartney. It’s so nice to treat yourself with a gift after an achievement because in the future you will look at that certain thing and always remember that victory. This belt is not an ordinary Moschino belt anymore, it stands for so much more.
The rest of the outfit above is pieces I use everyday, my Swatch watch is always around my wrist and the leather jacket and my boyfriend jeans I use a few times every week, and of course the boots, I’m slightly addicted to boots.

Game over, you lose. Yep that is exactly what my tee is saying, and I am loving it. And what about my shoes from Next? (Thank you again Next!) They really are the perfect everyday shoe and can spice up any outfit, and on top of that they are very comfortable as well. That’s all for this Monday, later skaters!
