Gifting season is getting closer by the minute and I decided to start off with gift ideas for yourself because let’s be honest who doesn’t like to spoil themselves sometimes? But don’t worry I will also cover gift ideas for all your favorite people in the world in the next weeks.
Even though I know that I won’t have to endure the cold winter weather here in the Netherlands a lot longer it’s quite hard for me to imagine the unbearable heat that’s waiting for me in Australia. Hence, I have been looking at coats and knits way to much in the past couple of weeks. I have always loved the beautiful, soft knits from Closed and this alpaka knit just streams my name. Do you remember this salt n pepper coat of mine? Unfortunately, I had to part with it because it was so worn out and the stitches started to open on one of the sleeves, too. While browsing through Mango I found a very similar style, which I would love to welcome to my wardrobe any time.
Another garment still missing in my collection of black denim are a pair of kick flare jeans. I have been searching for a low budget version for the past year now but on the one hand they are incredible hard to find in black and on the other hand if I eventually find one it usually has a terrible cut. So I turned to Net A Porter and found several kick flares that match all my criteria but my favorite by far would be these Madewell kick flares. I would add the Asos mules for a casual yet sophisticated look.
Turning to my favorite part of the gifting guide: accessories. I am deeply in love with the J.W. Anderson Pierce bag and wouldn’t mind adding it to my bag collection in multiple colors (yes that’s how much I like it). As I will be spending lots of time in the sun next year – #notsorry – treating myself with a pair of Celine sunglasses just seems logical, right?
