EXITED FOR VIENNA

I'm really exited for Vienna. My grandparents surprised me by asking if I wanted to join them on their trip to Vienna in November as a birthday gift for my 18th birthday. I have never been to Vienna before and only heard so many great stories about this city. If you guys have been there and have several tips on places/shops that I absolutely have to visit, please let me know. :)

WEEKLY OBSESSION


Forest green, black pointy boots, oversized knits, Adidas trainers, (faux) fur, round (sun)glasses etc. personally I love it and you can't go out shopping without bumping into one of the above mentioned. I might have to invest in several warm (with actual wool) oversized knits to keep myself warm this winter.

LIKE THE FRENCH

A.C.P hat, t-shirt and coat / Illesteva sunglasses / RAG AND BONE dungarees / 3.1 Phillip Lim shoes / Acne Studios little black bag, belt and scarf / Alexander Wang enveloppe bag / Daniel Wellington watch / Martone CYCLING Co. bike / BEAUTY Asos.com  

99% of the 'French' aspect of this comes purely because A.P.C is a French brand and lingerie sounds and it is from the French. About two weeks ago I stepped into the Pull & Bear in Amsterdam about half a year after their opening to try to avoid the mass and tourists - which is absolutely inevitable in Amsterdam especially the Kalverstraat - without a mission and bumped into a series of striped tees in all different color combinations; black/white, white/black, light grey/white, dark blue/white etc. That's when I got the french feels. Pair a breton stripe with a simple ankle hugging skinny jean or cigarette trousers, hacienda shoes, a red lip and a hat and you're done. 

And as cliche and over-done it sounds, the je ne sais qoui fashion maybe an attitude really has something magical to it and every non-french-girl is envious that only the French girls, not to forget the men, can pull of. It can make the most put together look seem blasé. A.P.C. is so kind to share this magical feeling with us and to helps us adopt Emmanuelle Alt's wardrobe rather than a Shrek around 7AM on an ordinary day. I'm all in, Merci Beaucoup ! :)

TO BLUE

COS dress and dress sweater / Acne studios boots

Dark blue. It's not exactly colorful but for me this is very rare. The first thing my friend said when she saw me wearing something other than black was: "Blue, seriously? Are you ok?" There is literally no black item of clothing in this look. Maybe I'm going through my own sartorial revolution and subconsciously changing my unable-to-identify-style to something more Scandinavian inspired seeing I am getting more and more into the on the knee and shin length dresses and not really caring to impress someone, it's more in the purer form of self-expression in the sense that there is no explanation. In this look I stayed true to whatever I stand for and what I feel comfortable in, my dad would say "A simple plain bin bag with some boots.". 
However, I'm sticking to my plan of not buying anything irrelevant and prefer purchasing great quality.

ON MY MIND

Topshop sweater / Acne boots, sunglasses and bracelets / Nars nailpolishes 

I love this simple more rock and fall inspired items. My closet is slowly turning into a more basic and minimalistic one and there are many more items to come. Stay tuned.

I'm a huge fan of Scandinavian and industrial design which you'll see in this inspiration post.
I've got to keep this short, because I have to leave for work in a minute and then later visit my friends new place. 

Adios Amigo!
