Quest For The Perfect Coat

cos-coat - 2.jpg

I am a coat addict. I don't think I could fit enough coats in my closet. But this season, I wanted to find my dream coat: a long oversized navy wool coat with a giant belt (To be fair I was looking for the coat Noora wears in season 2 of Skam). And I think I found it! It is cozy, versatile, effortlessly chic and also casual. I can wear it open or closed and I don't have to worry about dirt because it is a dark colour, it almost looks black. I have been wearing it all week and someone even called me Mary Poppins, which is a compliment I'm willing to accept haha. 

Imagine your dream coat. Can you describe it? 

Have a nice Sunday!

Reflecting on... Role Models

Reflecting on... Role Models

IMG_8249.jpg

Can you think of who your role models were when you were growing up? I distinctly remember being in awe when I read the Blonde Salad and I think fashion bloggers in general were always on my top list of role models. They were travelling the world, attending fashion shows and writing blog posts everyday with amazing photos. I think it was a great way to portray how I wanted my life to look like when I would be older. But now when I look back at this, I am almost embarrassed because I just wanted their flashy lifestyle of "full time bloggers" and massive wardrobes with current-season designer clothing. I have noticed that my current role models work in the domains of arts or fashion and they are all creating something relevant and interesting.

Now I don't look at what my role models have but their work ethics and the road they have travelled to be where they are right now. Their processes have become more important to me than their results. Emily Weiss is a badass woman who worked tons of hours outside her job at Vogue to create Into the Gloss and eventually Glossier. She had to knock at the door of many investors to find someone to actually believe in her project. Her determination and drive is inspiring. Garance Doré has always been a popular blogger but with time she left aside the flashy side of fashion and is giving more importance to the people who work with her at Atelier Doré. The team at Atelier Doré have a super interesting podcast that I love to listen to every week because you get different opinions on various topics. These are just examples and I have many more role models. I think looking up to different ways of doing and taking inspiration from people in different areas is a great way to realize what YOU want to do and how you will do it. 

Who are your role models?

4 Things I'm Loving This Season

IMG_7889.jpg

Podcast To Discover

Podcasts are what keep me going during my long commute to school or work. I've previously shared my list of favourite ones (here), but since then I've discovered many more. The one I wanted to share with you today is Estée Lalonde's The Heart of It. In the episodes, she talks about a specific subject with a guest, for example protests, tattoos and makeup. 

Smell

Ever since I visited the Glossier pop up in Toronto, I cannot stop thinking about the smell they were burning: Byredo's Burning Rose candle. It's a warm scent with a fresh side. I don't know how to describe it perfectly but I know I want my house to smell like this forever. Find it here.

What I'm Lusting After

Lucy Williams is the ultimate Instagram babe. If someone offered me to switch my wardrobe for hers, I would say yes in a second. Recently, she collaborated with the jewelry brand Missoma for her second collection. This new collection is inspired by her latest trip to Rome. I love that the pieces are gold with intricate details. Discover the whole collection here

Brand You Should Know

If you've read my latest post, you know Ganni has been on my radar in the last few months. I love their bold yet casual aesthetic. They are from Copenhagen but it's different from the usual Scandinavian / minimalist aesthetic that we usually see. They make quality clothes that will last you for a lifetime, and I just love them. This article and this article will give you a good example of what I mean.  

What are your seasonal favourites?
