Last Saturday was absolutely amazing! I spent the morning shooting new stuff for The Daily Dose with Kathi, and around noon, when we were finished the weather felt like spring in full force. We actually threw on the BBQ and spent the rest of the day out on the deck. For those first warm days, I love some distressed jeans, amazing sunglasses and a crisp white blazer. I actually used to own the perfect white blazer, until I took it to the dry-cleaners … it came back with orange stains everywhere (the lady said it was the black lining of the blazer …). However, just in time for spring, I spotted this beauty on Girissima.com and it was love at first sight. I love the slightly longer cut and structured look, because that way the blazer can also be worn for dressier looks. Supposedly, this weekend should be just as nice as the last, and I can’t wait to grab a good book and spend some more time in the sun! Happy weekend, you guys!
With my friends, I am already known as the girl with a leo obsession. Whenever they spot something with the animal print, I usually receive a text message, email of photo with the message “so you!”. And guess what, they are right! In my world, leopard print is a neutral, just as much as black, white or gray! I own everything from shoes, bags, a coat, scarves, … you get the point. As you guys know, I spoiled myself with the most perfect Miu Miu flats for my birthday. The only downside: my birthday is in February, which usually isn’t the time of the year to be wearing flats. But when spring made a little appearance this past week, and I spotted 10°C on the thermometer, I made a run for my new babies and wore them for work and some meetings on Wednesday. They still need a bit of breaking in, since I am already rocking 2 blisters, but by the time spring really comes around they’ll be good to go.
It is incredible to me, how much of an impact the weather has on my mood. The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is open the blinds a few inches, just enough to get a glance at the sky. On days like yesterday, where I peek out the window and all I see is sunshine and a cloudless blue sky, I am instantly in a good mood. If you then add “warm” temperatures (as warm as February gets) to the mix, it is a perfect day in my books. And guess what makes a day like that even more perfect? My brand new Isabel Marant heels, a beautiful new top from GIRISSIMA.com and some super distressed jeans. It definitely felt like spring yesterday, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! Happy Monday, guys!!
So, I have this colleague, Julia. We knew each other before we started working together (she actually recruited me), but over the past 2 years we’ve become good friends (obviously, because we spend so much time together), to a point where we can basically complete each other’s sentences and possibly even read minds. She knows me and my taste, and is usually 100% spot on when picking out things I “need” on Pinterest. Well, for about 6 months now, she’s been telling me that I needed sequin pants. I mostly agreed with her, but for some reason I also thought they were a bit too much. That is until I came across these gorgeous sequin leggings via GIRISSIMA.com (on sale!!). Maybe because only the front is sequined, or maybe because it was such a good deal at 40% off – but it was love at first sight! I’ve patiently been waiting for the postman to deliver them, and was so happy to see that they fit perfectly! Add a white silky blouse, some black heels and a small bag and ready is the glitter girl. Possibly even birthday outfit material? Oh, and I can also imagine them looking great with an oversized sweater and converse sneakers!! What do you guys think about the sequin pants?
