We shot these images during the last day in Milano over fashion week. While every italian girl was running around on their fancy stilettos, I decided to end my milanese weekend welcoming my new Acne Studios sneakers.. A staple my shoes collection was in need of! Classic and effortless, yet edgy.. the detail can elevate a very simple outfit such denim and a white shirt.






If you have been following me on Instagram lately, you surely noticed how much love I am spreading for white shirts with big sleeves. This Rika Studios is more elegant with the neck detail and I loved to dress it down in a sporty chic way.


Each season fashion week is approaching it comes along with a bit of ‘outfit stress’. After this year in London and Milan my approach has changed. What I learnt is that, like everyday of your our life, we should only wear what makes us feel good and confident.

Feeling good is the best way to shine through your outfit and if its a casual look, trendy, sophisticated or ‘dress to impress’ kind of look you have in mind.. the most important is that you only do it to make yourself feel good first!

The new year is here and first of all I want to wish you all a great 2016 and thank you for sticking with me for almost two years now. It’s been two years full of changes both with blogging and with my personal life. As you know, and for the ones who don’t know, in 2015 a lot happened. Becoming a mother received all my attention but also we got engaged and finally moved from London to Amsterdam.

Due to circumstances, I had to leave my blog a bit behind but I knew this was going to change. In 2016 we have a wedding to organise in Italy and I intend to focus on making Amsterdam my new ‘home’, redecorating our apartment and potentially buying a bigger one but most of all taking blogging to the next level, focusing on it full time together with taking care of little baby Emma Maaike.

We are working on a brand new website releasing soon which I am super excited about, I will be based in a new workspace this week at #workmode,  we have new new exciting projects lined up, I am planning to attend London and Milan fashion weeks in February and I will share all this with you daily on the blog and on my socials!

I am very excited about these new beginnings but for this weekend, I am still cozying up at home in my current favourite chunky knit, snuggling my baby who is fighting her first cold and browsing through the winter sales in front of the fireplace.

One of the remarks I often get from my boyfriend is that I always wear trainers. (Men are always exaggerating!!) The minute I come home with a new shopping bag and I show him the novelty with excitement and satisfaction (..this is not always happening since I don’t want to hear ‘did you really need a new pair of shoes, or bag, or blabla… but this happens in every house, doesn’t it?) I think he hopes in a pair of killer heels. Instead it would be a pair of sneakers, denim, loafers, leather pants or this time a sweater dress. Now, lets get to the point..I could have styled it with heels too but with trainers is more stylish to me. A scandi-inspired sporty-chic look makes me feel more myself and I really can enjoy the layering game adding leather trousers underneath and playing with lengths adding a masculine cut  coat.

I added a feminine touch to the look with this cool bracelet from Chandrah. You may have already seen it on my Instagram because I have been wearing it every day since I have got it. This style is on point with the ‘marble look a like’ beads and 18k rose gold plated detail. I love how easily you can put it on with the elastic band. Chandrah offers free worldwide express shipping and I am thinking, since I am enjoying it so much, it would make a great Christmas gift for my besties.

So, to make the story short, you must wear only what makes you feel good!  And blame the rain that in Amsterdam has been non stop the past week or the time waiting that the baby wakes up from her nap or to be honest, I just wanted a new pair of shoes I may need or not.. I ended up buying a new pair of sneakers.. and these are amazing! Stay tuned!

Sleveless vests continue to be a wardrobe staple and when fall arrives I can’t wait to style it. This one is a cozy alternative to my leather jacket and a fancy appetiser to the winter coat. At the moment I am just wearing it over a sweater but when the temperature cools down I also like to wear it with a blazer or a cardigan underneath or even over the leather jacket. I especially like this fox one from an independent vintage shop I found in Italy. The softness, great line and taupe colour makes it easy to pair with so many different layers and mix and match with many items in my wardrobe.

When I say Amsterdam it still doesn’t feel like home. In a way it’s a strange feeling living like a tourist in your ‘new’ home town. On the other way it’s fun to discover new places every day and look for new and different shooting locations.

Just a ferry ride away from Amsterdam Central Station and you are at the Eye Film Institute, an archive and museum of dutch and foreign films screened in the Netherlands. The architecture is just beautiful.

I was wearing a proper fall look, you know, when you wear a cashmere sweater but you can still afford to go bare legs. I am never really wearing bright colours but this time is a total black look. I can’t get enough of leather and culottes, so when they come into the same item, it’s a go! I styled them with a cashmere sweater from All Saints for a dressed down attitude and paired them with these Miu Miu loafers to give a chic, yet comfy touch.
