Welcome to my dream walk-in-closet

walkincloset

When it comes to clothes and style a good wardrobe is just as important as the actual clothes in order to maintain a good style. Why one might wonder? Well, it’s actually quite simple when you think of it. If you can’t see what you own you don’t know that you have it in your closet. If you have a good overview it’s easier to get inspired and know what to wear that day.  I don’t always practice as I preach I have to admit, but my excuse is that London apartments doesn’t always have space for a walk-in-closet to be honest. But a girl can dream no? Follow me to my dream closet…

As much as I want an organized wardrobe it needs to be alive as well. Let me explain; If it’s too monochrome or stiff it doesn’t inspire me, I need to see some colors and preferably all blend together as on the picture above. This will then give me ideas of how to mix two colors together that I wouldn’t have thought of unless they hanged side by side. I need a little bit of organized chaos to spark my ideas.

Another essential thing for my dream wardrobe is a table in the middle. Like this on the picture above,  I can then keep fresh flowers, jewelry boxes, perfume, scented candles and of course my coffee cup in the morning on the table. There need to be a table, It’s as simple as that!

Last but not least, I want oriental carpets in my walk -in and either a sofa or an armchair. Let’s face is, the wardrobe should be my happy place and it should be cozy and relaxed so somewhere to sit to gather my thoughts is a must and a carpet, of course, to make it relaxed. Again I would go for a colorful carpet to add that extra something in the room and make it more inspiring.

But even if you tick off all the boxes above in what to have, you have to complete one final task to get that dream wardrobe. CLEAN! That’s one thing that I’m quite good at and I have no problem getting rid of clothes and shoes I don’t wear or love anymore. Let’s be honest, you can’t achieve your dream wardrobe if it’s not organized and filled with pieces you love. You want to be able to walk in there and feel that you adore every piece and would wear it in a secund (If the occasion is right of course). I try to not to put emotional value in the clothes because that’s a trap. You need to get rid of some pieces in order to move on and change and experiment with your style.

But do not worry, I have a gift for you if you are one of those who find it hard to let go of clothes and shoes. MakeSpace.com have put together this chart in order to help you make the right decision, you will end up either keeping, storing, donate/sell or trash/recycle your item. Simply brilliant! What are you waiting for? Take the first step to your dream wardrobe.

I love a good old casual look. You know, your “safe-card” when you have nothing to wear? My vintage Levis 501 is one of my wardrobe staples, they have saved me many times from an outfit crisis. Today a paired them up with one my favorite shoes and my new bought fishnet stocking ( I simply can’t get enough of them). Amazing!

Happy Monday y’all!

fishnet6Yes, I’m obsessed with my sheepskin fur jacket hence why it appears in every outfit post lately (One other important point is that it’s so bloody cold right now so it’s actually the only jacket that keeps me warm).

Anyway, let’s talk socks. This time they are not glittery as in previous posts but the good old classic fishnet sock. Spice up any outfit as you can see above. There is something with socks, they are more important for an outfit then one might think. Need to get more socks!

A low bun and ball earring

One of my best tips when you either just have a bad hair day or don’t have time to wash it is to simply put it in a bun, and to add some smashing earrings. I promise you that first of all no one can tell that your hair isn’t in its best condition and second, everyone will focus on the earrings. Easy peasy lemon squeeze.

I have gone from loving a high bun into a low bun in the neck kind-of-girl. It feels more slick and chic and less boho (I’m always more boho in summer time). Have a lovely Wednesday!

Glitter socks in a sunny south of france

So last week I did a speed holiday to South of France (Yes I tend to hang out quite a lot there). This time i meet up with my mom and sister. The sun was shining on us and although it was only for two days (including flights) it almost felt longer due to all the things we manage to squeeze in and the quality time we spend together.

My outfit above was also my airplane outfit so it needed to be warm and comfortable, so glittery socks (a little bit of glam) comfy shoes and baggy jeans did the job.

The Debrief Interview – The shot before that perfect Instagram shot

interview

When I got contacted from the magazine The Debrief if I wanted to participate in an interview about everything behind that perfect Instagram shot, I couldn’t say no. I think it is so important to as much as you can get inspired by Instagram to understand, and in a way see in between the lines, of what lies behind that shot. It may look like a perfect picture but in most cases there is also a lot of work behind it, and not always a picture “on-the-go” so to say.

I love Instagram and I love putting my time and effort in to inspire all my followers in fashion, styling, deco and life in general. But as I mentioned in the interview it’s also a way of showcasing your work and you want your work to look good, let’s not forget that! It’s all about taking Instagram for what it is. For me, it’s a source of inspiration and I know that most people don’t really live that perfect life that they might be showing, but it’s ok because I know it and I’m there to get their goodies from their life in a way. Does it make sense?

Read the full interview here, and please leave a comment if you have any thoughts around this subject! I would love to hear it.

Are you shopping any of this on Black Friday?

blackfriday

So black Friday is here again. This time I quickly scanned the market to see what I wish for right now and things I wold actually use and not just because there is discount and it’s cheap ( Do not get fooled by this my friends). This is my favorites so far…

Cactus vase / I don’t even know if I have to add anything to this one, EVERYBODY needs a cactus vase in their house. It’s as simple as that. This one can be yours for only 21 pounds just make sure you add the code BLACKFRIDAY when you check out.

Ring /The perfect cocktail ring from Dyrberg and Kern (Go Danish design!). For the amazing price of 55  pounds!!

Bracelet /I adore when designers take something old and ancient and remake a newer version of it. Bracelet with pendants coin is simple but so classic and beautiful. This baby can be yours for only 25 pounds. No kidding.

Rotting armchair /For some reason I have become obsessed with chairs (or any other deco pieces for that matter ) in the material rotting. So retro yet so minimalistic and modern. Love. This one can be yours for only 87 pounds just make sure you add the code BLACKFRIDAY when you check out.

It’s a true blessing to  be surrounded by creative people with whom you can change ideas and thoughts and  be inspired by. Elina is one of those people, she runs her jewelry brand Cocos Liberty and creates the most amazing pieces. The earring above is from her brand and I love a big gold earring, the best thing about this one is that it’s not heavy at all and that the design is so different but still simple. Love it!

Since as long as I can remember I have had a problem finding the perfect winter coat. I don’t want it to be too big, too sporty, too cold or too boring. You get it, not an easy task. What happened every December, when it was getting colder, was that I panic bought something since I really had to keep myself warm somehow, but I ended up with something I wasn’t completely happy about.

Not this year, 2016 is a year that will go into history in my personal life, this year is the year when I found and invested in a coat that ticks of all the boxes of what I was asking for. I feel pretty and warm ( some days when it’s not too cold I actually sweat in it?!) and this fellow is gonna be my friend for many winters ahead!

Well done Mango!

Long luxury knit makes a easy casual streetstyle

I realized something whilst writing this post, winter season makes me dress in a very casual way. Just the thought of running around in heels in this cold weather makes me very unmotivated. Do not despair (for those who misses my more dressed up looks), I’m sure as soon as February is here I would get those heeled boots back on, or maybe earlier who knows?

This knitwear by the way, I never got so many complaints over the year by this simple yet so fine turtleneck knit from Hope. Sometimes (or a lot of times actually) the simple things really are the best!
