SNEAKERS

Yours truly has always been a Sneaker addict - I suppose my weak ankles and neverending runningaround have done the trick to begin with. Also with the uprise of new comfortable trends such as the Bircks, the crisp white Nike sport socks in slippers and the plimsolls, my focus on everything low and comfy in the lalaland of shoes is growing. Hence today an overview of my current favorites, both some newer designs and some good old basics - all from the ASOS webshop. Enjoy!

MH17

Little did I know if and what to write here about MH17, until this afternoon. Over the past days the event slowly got to me, realizing that it could have been us and everyone we know. Here in the Netherlands, there's a small perceived distance to the MH17 plane crash; as said multiple times in Dutch media, everyone knows somebody who knows somebody - whether it's a victim or survivor, it's close - also for yours truly. It has imposed a rollercoaster of feelings to the entire country over the last few days, to say the least.

Accepting what has happened was and is difficult - it simply is too horrible, too abrupt, too not-imagineable. And then the first 40 coffins were carried out of the military airplanes at Eindhoven Airport earlier today, forcing realization upon all of us. The realization that this plane, these people got dragged into something they hadn't anything to do with, in a horrible way - leaving us with feelings of anger, disbelief and despair as our Foreign Minister Frans Timmermans put so accurately. R.I.P.

INSPIRATION MONDAY: THE KNITS

Knits. None such thing was on my mind the last few days; it was weekend and the weather was more than good - but then I went to write this blogpost and came across the editorial from Cosmopolitan Australia below. Now where's winter? Haven't seen knits done this right in a long time, which is the reason I'm talking knits in the middle of summer.. Have a great Monday! Pictures from Fashion Gone Rogue

LATEST ADDITIONS


Well, there are some new items in my closet too - thought I'd share it with you today. It's not that much - saving up for next month when we'll hopefully get a new place - but all of them are full on favorites I've already grown to love. If you're a returning reader, you have seen that leather bag before - it was my obsession/ savings project, which I ended up receiving from my mum as a present to celebrate the fact that I got a job (didn't know what made me happier, the job or the bag..!). The dress, blue sweater and red top are all beautiful pieces from COS - as well as the necklace. However, that last one has more to it - it was the gift I got from my boyfriend to celebrate our 5 years together. Subtile, minimal - he definitely knows what I like. And in return I got him this shirt .. We're such a COS couple, it seems! And then there are the Zara slippers; they turn out to be everywhere this summer, but who am I kidding - they're black, minimal and comfortable as Idunnowwhat, so definitely a favorite. And they go incredibly well with that white coated skinny jeans I got from Zara today, don't they? A little secret: it's my first white jeans ever. EVER. Always withstood the urge to get a pair as I was convinced they wouldn't survive in their original color, but now I couldn't - too many white skinny jeans outfits are in the back of my mind, so all there's left now is do my best to avoid the dirt and keep em crisp. And then, last but not least, the Samsoe & Samsoe printed sweater which I knew I had to have the moment I saw it. Minimal colors, maximum effect? 

In addition to the above, yours truly got lucky at the Birthday Giveaway at MyDubio, where I won the items below: a loose white tee and a white sweater dress. How good are these!? They were in my mailbox the day I returned from Valencia; must admit it made the Spanish/ Dutch weather transition that much easier. Thankyou for that, Joyce!
