Blue Velvet: 10.14

ladylike



Outfit inspiration of the day features very ladylike pieces paired with more boyish ones.
A midi skirt will always remind me of a woman who manages to look pulled together and precise at all times, one that I'll never be myself but I can try and channel it time and time again. Added to that, the gold hoops and mules make the outfit even more elegant and chic, but then of course the tomboy inside of me comes and ruins it all, pairing it with a boxy knit and a leather biker jacket. And there you have it, the perfect balance between the upper and the lower body half; exactly what I'd like to be wearing right now.

pearls and bars

After going crazy with the huge ear cuffs trend (not that I've gotten over it yet), I've now moved on to the more elegant hoops and pearls, with the only difference that I do prefer them when they come in bulk. Translation: the more, the merrier! For the time being I satisfy my endless ear-cravings with clip on earrings, as I only have one piercing in every ear, but I constantly think of getting a few more piercings, so that I can accommodate all these tiny babies. So what do you think of this trend?

Going crazy with mixing masculine pieces with feminine touches to create a boy-meets-girl vibe.
Oversized coats with robe-kinda belts, camel colours, baker boy caps, fluffy scarves and turtlenecks.. Count me in!

October tunes




October has brought in lots of new tunes to listen to while I discover this new city, and my Spotify playlists keep getting bombarded with different artists and playlists to choose from. So I figured, why not share some of my current favorites here as well. 

The XX, Chet FakerR.E.M, and London Grammar much this gloomy weather perfectly. Of course The Weeknd will forever be added in my playlists; he's the only artist I haven't got sick of after months of having him on repeat. And as of my latest discovery, Banks, is definitely going to reappear in here, as I am obsessed with her big time. I mean, how could I not be, when reviews have dubbed her the female version of The Weeknd!

The playlist is going to get bigger and bigger up until the end of the month, and then I'm switching to a new one with my favorite tunes for November. That's the way I like to "organize" my playlists; I know it's a bit messy, but when I discover a new song I have it on replay until I get sick of it. So until new songs pop in here, enjoy!

back to the roots



When life starts to weigh you down, it's always easier to step back, see the bigger picture and seek to find what's really important. Sometimes it's those little things that will brighten up the gloomiest days; beautiful photographs, a hot cup of coffee and some good music.
