This week has been so intense already and it’s only Tuesday. Yesterday I shot for a magazine all day, and today I’ve already baked my husband a birthday cake, celebrated with the kids and attended a lovely press event for one of my favorite brands Samsoe&Samsoe. I rarely have the opportunity to attend any press events, but I’m glad I managed to arrange my schedule around this one. It’s always as lovely to meet other bloggers and chit chat about everyday life. Everyone is always so incredibly sweet, kind and if possible even more beautiful than in pictures. Amazing and inspiring colleagues to say the least!

Finally I managed to catch this dress on picture! Surprisingly, this dress is one of my most worn ones. Talk about profitable cost per use. However, I’ve never seen myself as someone who likes pattern, but I have a few exceptions hanging in my wardrobe. This floral dress with long sleeves and the perfect midi length is one of my favorites and has been for a couple of years now.

There is something in this dress that I find very attractive. Somehow, I seem to like flowers on a black base more than on a light one. I guess it’s less cute, therefore less childish even? Perfect dress and pattern for seasons transitioning. Paired with a suede jacket or a long cozy cardigan makes it work perfectly for cooler days and going into darker seasons. Sometimes it’s hard to say or see (not to even mention predict) why certain clothes seem so easy to wear. I even think I’ve worn this more than my favorite white tee-shirt, which at least to me is quite a mystery and weird equation to figure out.

DIY choker

August 21, 2016

I have to admit that I’m not really the DIY kind of woman. Even though I wish I was. Since I love to treasure hunt at flea markets I have promised myself not to purchase anything that needs a little nip and tuck. It never happens. Instead items that are so-so gather dust somewhere in a corner, giving me a bad conscious. It only works if it’s something I really love and can be outsourced to my seamstress.

However, every now and then I surprise myself. While going through my arts and crafts drawer I found this leather band. I think it once came wrapped around a box from Louis Vuitton. I saved it as gift wrapping decoration, but when I saw it I got inspired to wear it as a choker. It turned out to become a fun detail.

I’m sure any kind of ribbon or string will do. As long as it pleases the eyes of the person who wears it. In the end, that’s what it’s all about no?
