Shopping | Diaper bag dilemma

diaperbag1

Never in a million years I thought it would be so hard to find a good looking diaper bag. Did I say hard? Let me rephrase that, it is in fact impossible to find a good looking diaper bag. Seriously, they don’t excist! If you are on the search for one, just like me, I feel for you. All there is to find are backpacks, ugly printed/weird fabric messenger bags, unisex bags (when is a bag ever suitable for men ánd women?).

Sorry for my rant, but after several weeks of searching there is nothing more to it. The only ones I did liked a tiny bit were over 350 dollars. And who’s going to spend money like that on a diaper bag when you can buy an entire –ok half– wardrobe for your baby for that amount? Not me.

So after I was done looking at green/purple/yellow printed bags I decided the diaper bag just wasn’t for me. I started looking at normal bags that would easily function as a diaper bag. I mean, all you need is a decent sized, gorgeous bag with multiple pockets inside. An easy to clean lining is also a plus, otherwise you will be crying when a bottle of milk/juice/whatever explodes in your bag.

Not all of the above are totally approved as diaper bags, but that doesn’t matter. I like them, and I wouldn’t mind walking around with one of them. My eye goes out to the dust pink one from JCrew.

What do you think? Have you ever bought a diaper bag or are you just as lost as I am?

Shopping | December gifts

Decembergifts

Hello December! I can’t believe how fast time is passing by and that we are already in December. Good thing is I absolutely love December and all the holidays it brings along. I also love to hunt for the perfect gifts for my loved ones and of course making the ultimate list for myself. Which is shown above.

The Chloé boots don’t need any explanation. If I wouldn’t get anything at all, but these boots; I would be (beyond) the happiest girl in the universe. Anyway, not expecting to get these, but a girl can dream right? All the other things on my list are more cosy winter essentials, like the plaid or the cute christmassy socks from Oysho. I can already see myself sitting on the couch, listening to Christmas carols, eating cookies from the adorable bunny cookie jar, drinking hot chocolate milk from the gold-dripping mug. This all while wearing the socks, under a blanket with around my neck the silver necklace.

Mmm… the only thing missing in this picture are my beloved Chloé boots. But those are the perfect excuse to go outside and enjoy the cold! (And some more hot chocolate milk) :)

Did you already make up your list?

Shopping | Welcome to Cape town!

A couple years ago a certain girl named Blair Waldorf set the record straight about capes. You have to have one! Just google ‘Blair Waldorf cape’ if you never watched Gossip Girl (which you should start NOW then) or if you never payed attention during the show ;).
Anyway, capes are the way to go this Fall. Easy to throw on over any outfit and gives a sophisticated look to whatever you are wearing. I selected a couple of my favorites and now it’s down to making a decision. Which color or material? Oh boy, decisions decisions…

As I mentioned before, I can not get these boots out of my mind. For as long as I can remember, these boots are my absolute dream boots. For long I thought €950 was way (WAY) too expensive, that was until I saw them in real life in Dutch department store de Bijenkorf. I looked at them, let my fingers feel the studs, the nice leather and just gasped. These boots are too good to be true. I didn’t try them on, purely to not torture myself, I mean I know I would be walking around de Bijenkorf in the boots for ever until the saleslady would (kindly) escort me outside (without the boots of course).

SO, enough with the dreaming I decided. I started my own shoe-fund on my bank account, (feel free to donate ;) haha) started a huge clean out in my closet (SOON online) and hopefully these babies will soon be mine… Now I only need to decide on the color of the suds. Decisions, decisions!!
