Currently on the hunt for a pair of black pumps. Simple things, classics really, are all about the right shape, the right cut, the right material.  Think simple white T. Or  jacket. Finding The One is not as easy as one might think, right?

There are a few posts lined up this week, some of them covering heavier topics (such as the oh-so-much-discussed Saint Laurent collection). So, before things get a little deeper, let’s take a look at a few lovely things…

(6) Mr Porter is known for all kind of things such as menswear and style. They are also known for giving good advice where advice is needed and for portraying beautifully style icons. Put all those things together and in print: you have a very much coveted book. (4) This tiny camera by Minox would certainly fit into any bag that I own. That could be reason enough, but let’s not kid ourselves: I would probably buy that one for the looks only. Same thing applies when it comes to this watch. (3) I sure do need (!) one on my wrist by now and yet…the Uniform Wares version could be easily seen as nothing more than an accessory. (1) and (2)  There is still snow outside, people! And all I can think about is spring. And all white looks. The off-white sweatshirt by Iro seems like a good option (I quite like the  short sleeves with turned-up cuffs), especially when combined with a white jean (slightly on the slouchy side). (5) The final touch would be brought courtesy by Converse. Good old chucks. They don’t need any introduction, right? For some, they might be too „cliché“. For me, they seem just right.

(1) Iro: Leola Sweat Top (2) Rag & Bone: The Dash Jean (3) Uniform Wares: 250 Series Steel Wristwatch (4) Minox: DCC 14.0 Camera (5) Converse: Chuck Taylor All Star (6) Mr Porter Paperback

This is what I would call „inappropriate“: coveting sandals in den midst of autumn (slash winter). Happily I’m not out of tune that often (yes, I’m trying to console myself). I don’t think myself as a person who leafs through Vogue and dreams of a winter coat just when the heat wave hits the town. Entering a shop and trying on something woolly or fluffy is pretty much unthinkable. So how am I able to explain today’s choice? Let’s agree that this is a slip-up. Can we move on now?
