messenger bag




My favourite gifts are practical ones (and travels!)

I carry my backpack around 90% of the time because of all the things I have to bring to school, and then along with that I always have a smaller bag for items like keys, wallet, phone etc.
Now I just got this bag as a gift and it can replace my daily wear of backpack+small bag. This messenger is perfect for every day use because of the size and its practical 5 compartments (makes me happy when I can organize ~) and 1 outer pocket. It’s also simple with no logo and subtle hardware. Yess.

Glad to have this one as I´ve gotten rid of all my bigger bags. Speaking of, I’m going to update the shop with more items I’m selling from my closet in short time! I’m using a better website this time as well which makes the process much easier :) Will let you know.

silk ensemble




Silk ensemble: Silk shirt bought 3 years ago at Beacons Closet, Silk trousers bought 4 years ago in a Vintage store in London.

I used to stop by vintage and thrift shops more often a few years ago, now I usually browse through etsy if I’m looking for something. These two garments were bought seperately, but works perfect together as a set. Yes to the easy pajama feel!
Going to wear this with sandals in the summer, but in the meanwhile I’ll wear it with layers (and layers) of wool. Meh.

I came across this instagram, @simplicitycity, with heaps of classis, timeless and most of all easy outfits. Gives a reassurance of that you can look good with simple basics.

When it comes to my previous post about buying less I just want to say that my main point with that post is to spend more time and energy on things that matter to you, like friends, family, health and passions. My point was not about splurging on one expensive item instead of buying cheaper quantities. It’s about finding favourites for your wardrobe, at any price point, so that you can move forward from spending time on shopping and dressing up, and then spend that energy on other things instead. Just wanted to make that clear:)

union



Have any of you guys read Union Magazine?
It’s a Japanese magazine focusing on timeless beauty, and I’m curious to find out if it’s good. Will flip through it the next time I’m in a bookstore to check it out.

Have a nice weekend!
