A little while ago I signed up to tumblr in order to follow some amazing blogs that I'd had in my RSS Reader for a while. And – as with Instagram – I couldn't help but get involved and reblog photos or post my own. So now you can follow my tumblr-blog here.

Happiness by Iro

Remember the Iro bomber jacket that I've raved over? Well, I've found it! It's called "Minela" and it was suddenly back in stock. I think it's a great summer jacket that can look equally nice styled for the city (as above) as for the beach. I can't wait to wear it thrown over a white hippie dress. (The mirrored sunglasses are by Vans).

Summer moodboard




Let's dive from spring right into summer! I know I'm early and I really want to enjoy spring, now that it's finally here (I saw the first cherry blossoms this week!) - but I'm also already thinking about my summer holiday ... it'll be good!

Stars and stripes

The moment I bought these star-embroidered trousers by Isabel Marant Étoile I knew they were just perfect for spring. I love wearing them with my Breton shirt from Petit Bateau (a wardrobe staple) and the "Bobby" sneakers I got in Paris. The bag is from GreatbySandie and the sunglasses are Illesteva.
(By the way, if you click on the photos you can see them enlarged).

Summer knits

Beside printed, light blouses there is another essential category in my spring/summer wardrobe that I need to share with you: I couldn't live without colourful cotton sweaters, to combine with summer dresses or denim cut-offs. The above exemplar in blue, grey and purple shades is my newest addition. Like the similar one in slightly darker colours that I have been wearing for a while (you can also see it worn here) it was handmade by my very talented mother. Lucky me!

Iro spring/summer 13 Magazine

For the first time, this season, one of my favourite labels from Paris (well, admittedly nearly all of my favourite Fashion labels are based in Paris ...) has published its own magazine. The Iro magazine visualizes the spring/summer collection with atmospheric photos, diary snippets and notes of a sunny road story and a motor race in the desert. "Long live Rock'n'Roll in each of you"... No suprise I like the magazine a lot. 

Summer wardrobe update

I am slowly but surely stocking up on new summer essentials. After my printed blouse from The Kooples I got another light, silky shirt that immediately makes me dream of wearing it on holiday (don't you think it's made to be worn with denim shorts while walking along the beach?!). I also finally got the Illesteva "Leonard" sunglasses (in matte!) that I had been eyeing (haha, sorry about the pun) for so long. I found them here. Now all I need is some sunshine and a temperature-rise, so I can show you some outfit photos.

New beauty highlight

Probably you've been using this product for years – but I only discovered it on the weekend. MAC's "Mineralize skinfinish" leaves a very pretty subtle shimmer on your skin. I guess it's what you call "sun-kissed".

Let go

I've always admired long, wild hair (unfortunately due to its nature I could never wear my hair as long as I wished to) ... but lately there's been a thing going on. Elin did it, Leandra did it - Alexa has done it a while ago ... everybody's suddenly wearing short hair. Well, I call it short, but it's actually just above the shoulders. I really want to try it but I need to wait until my layered cut's grown out.

Going tropical

I know, I know, it's only April. I cannot even wear my spring outfits yet because it's still too cold ... But maybe that's because I am already thinking about summer. As I said, I got myself a Paisley shirt from the Kooples, but any kind of print does it for summer, if you ask me. I love this snake-print shirt by Equipment – it would look good with denim cut-offs like these Ksubi ones and it's a perfect match with this clutch by Mary Katrantzou, these Espadrilles by Tory Burch and the Nina Ricci sunglasses. I also really like these holographic bracelets - they're Marc Jacobs and Eddie Borgo.
