Back to Life



I really can't complain about the move... Apart from the garage ceiling falling in at my old place (no big deal, right?), everything went surprisingly well. Even though it went smoothly, moving is undeniably exhausting. Now that I'm all settled, I've finally gotten motivated to pick out furniture as well... So before long there will actually be a place to sit in the new place. ;)

I felt like bright red, suede wedge pumps were the best back-to-life/work option for a post-move Monday morning. And a pencil skirt, of course.






Parker blouse (sold out, but available here in a similar pattern), Zara skirt (similar), Ann Taylor shoes and belt (similar), Francesca's collection clutch, F21 bangles (similar here and here) and earrings/ring (similar), Michael Kors watch

  3. Moving is tiring indeed, I know. We have been doing it three times in five years and then we decided we were going to grow old here, just because we don't want to carry boxes around anymore :-)

    I love your style. You are beautiful and your outfits are very stylish.

  18. I love how you carry a theme through your outfits - the red shoes, and little hints of red in your belt and ring. It really pulls everything together.

    Good luck with getting settled in your new place. I always think the biggest part of moving is actually the aftermath!

  56. Congrats, moving is a nightmare. Even when I was fixing up the house, the construction process was driving me so crazy that I felt like could voluntarily live in a box. Thankfully it's over and no more mess around the place. Good luck with the furnitures! Loved the shoes and the skirt. xx
