Tag: acne studios denim jacket







Happy Saturday! While this post goes online we are on a plane to Italy.. (Emma being quite the jet setter visiting her third country at only 2 months old) I expect to spend a nice and relaxing 10 days, ‘sharing’ Emma with all of her aunties and grandparents which will mean some ‘free time’ for myself. Of course some shopping will be included in the trip aside the good food, many double shot espressos (the real deal) and vino!

Outfit speaking, this Acne Studios denim jacket quickly became my staple during the transitional weather. I linked a similar one since it was quickly sold out everywhere. I got mine last summer at Selfridges.  When it comes to classics I don’t mind to indulge a bit more because I know I will wear them a lot and won’t go out of fashion. Also, the light denim colour allow me to play with the rest of the outfit and the short cut looks very good with skirts and dresses too.

Let’s just talk about my obsession with flat shoes for a second.. I think I have found my ‘shoephere’ here in Amsterdam, I have barely seen someone wearing heels. It is all about cool trainers, sneakers and flats! Adore!! I love these Chloe espadrilles and I am so glad the weather has been so sunny which allow me to still wear them! The swede is super soft, perfect for my daily long walks with Emma and still feeling stylish. Can you tell I am starting to enjoy my new city?

2015.. What a year! Got pregnant, got engaged, ended up having an atrocious delivery, emergency c-section, then a beautiful angel arrived in my life and literally turned it upside down.. Finally we moved to a different country, with a new born aarrgghh!! If you think that would have been easy.. Think again! Actually, I should have thought twice! Naive me! 2015.. We still have a trimester to go! Please, spare me! I seriously would do with some boredom..
I wish my only worry at this stage was to lose the baby weight. That went in no time!! (20kg in less than 6 weeks.. I Should actually consider a career at the Weight Watchers!!). I think the stress added to the breast-feeding played a massive role! But hey, we keep the result, Thank you very much!
So here i am! In a new city i dont know and especially i dont speak the language, with a newborn and a very busy fiance! This will translate into a lot of exploring, possibly getting lost and probably misunderstood.. But I am in excellent company of Emma and I am curios about this new life!
On a sartorial level, I left behind, for now, my job in Mayfair in London.. With all the fancy aspects which were coming with it and swapped it for a full time mom job.. which trust me, it is 10 times harder! I often think i was never this tired in the evening, even after a full day with overtime! But I have to admit, when Emma smiles at me, there is no yearly bonus worth the same! It just means a lot of flat shoes and simple chic outfits which fit better with my life at the moment!
But I did bring to Holland a little Mayfair corner.. My new Chanel! It was a ‘well deserved’ push present for giving Menno the most beautiful daughter! I am not planning on a second baby but since I can make cute ones.. If you ask me, next time it would be a Birkin!
