cacti baby // outfit


Hello! A post with less than two months in between, now that's pretty impressive.
Today I have an outfit for you guys. It's been a while so I decided to get together with Joppe in the last week of August to take some photo's. My outfit is surprisingly simple for me but oh well.

c/o Oasap Paisley shirt // Vintage earrings // American Apparel sweater
Brandy Melville crystal necklace // Monki high waisted trousers // Vintage belt
c/o Oasap eye ring // second hand Adidas sneakers // Titi + The German Kid tote bag

I am so in love with this shirt from Oasap, I've been the number one fan of paisley for a really long time and although it is a little bit too bohemian for my style I think this will be a piece that I can get a lot of wear out. Also trousers huh??? I bought the Monki pair in Stockholm and I actually bought it 3 sizes too big so it doesn't fit me that well but I am still happy I got them. So yes pants are back in my dictionary woohoo! Also this tote bag! Best thing ever maybe? Biggie, Bob, David & Mick on one bag yes please! I've been wearing this tote non stop (using it as a school bag right now) and I can't get enough of it. Ah Titi you little genius (tempted to get this sweater from her new collection. Do tell me what you think of it in the comments below)


On a completely different note: I got tickets for Alt-J's concert in Belgium in February and I am so excited!


Love,
Ibe

Summer '14

Hello! So here I am once more.. three  months later. Do you remember the times when I  used to blog every other day? No, me neither. Oh well this only means that my "more-time-for-blogging-this-summer-plan" didn't work out well. But I had an amazing summer anyway. And today I feel like giving you a little update of all things done for the past months!

#1 I went to Rock Werchter and finally got to see the Arctic Monkeys live!!



After wanting to go, waiting to buy tickets, waiting until the tickets were sold out, regretting not having bought tickets, wishing she was there EVERY year... Ibe finally made it to Rock Werchter! Admittedly for only one day but hey it's a start, isn't it?
I opted for Friday mainly because of the Arctic Monkeys (yeah I know don't make me apologize for the big fan girl factor). And the fact that the 1975 was playing the same day was a nice extra. I ended up seeing The 1975, Trixie Whitley, Parov Stellar (who where so good live wow), bits of Crystal Fighters and The Strypes, Arctic Monkeys (!!!) and Major Lazer (which was crazy). One of those really great days.

#2 I vacationed in Stockholm



I went to Stockholm with my family for a week or so and  what an incredibly beautiful city this is. I absolutely loved everything about it. It is completely surrounded by water (which is crystal clean and fit for swimming almost everywhere)  The old buildings are so lovely and the people are so nice! I definitely want to go back soon.

#3 I got really into Peace


I think I first heard about Peace when someone sent  me a message on Tumblr to check them out and I listened to one song, liked it and then forgot about them. But then after three months I saw someone posting a link to the Bloodshake video and I fell in love. I swear Bloodshake has been my jam this summer. And Money and Get Lost On Me and Flirtin USA and Follow Baby and basically every song they have ever made. Keeping my fingers crossed for a gig in Belgium!

#4 I spent some time with Marie in upstate Maine



So yeah I went to this little town in Maine with Marie to visit her family and I stayed there for 16 days I think. To be honest it was a very mixed experience for me mainly because I was really homesick which was something new for me. I guess it was just being on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean in a very peaceful and beautiful place but with not that much to do, out of sync with my other friends and my family. Honestly, that was kind of hard on me.  We shared some great  moments on the lake and in the woods though and the reunion with my friends and family was the best!

#5  I celebrated the Summer



Printscreen of my Instagram end of June/July/Augustus. It's been so good! There were some great parties and beautiful evenings and good talks and a lot of laughter and I am going to stop here because this is getting way too cheesy for me. But anyway I do hope you had a great summer as well!


Love,
Ibe

MAY FAVORITES


Hello! Sorry for not posting in a while (again), exams are coming up and as always I am freaking out and trying to get my shit together. And to be honest I don 't think I will be posting here a lot in the coming month. But I hope I will find more time to contribute something this summer. I am very much looking forward too. But back to the subject! This post is about my May favorites: 

1. c/o Palladium Pampa shoes: These babies actually arrived last Friday but I have been wearing them non stop since then and I am so so so in love with them. The very kind people of Oona PR sent them to me and they are so comfortable and I love how they make an outfit look less prim & proper and more like I actually don't care // I woke up like this (Beyoncé references 24/7). Also I would recommend checking out their explorer series!

2. The Wes Anderson Collection by Matt Zoller Seitz: This book is simply amazing! So many pretty full page photos, set designs, early scripts, special graphics and of course the interviews. If you are a fan of Wes Anderson's movies this is a no-miss.

3. Travels With Charley by John Steinbeck: I am in the middle of this book right now but I am loving every single page. It makes me want to pack my bags and just leave and travel across America. So much wanderlust.

4. It by Alexa Chung: I actually finished this in September right after it came out but I still wanted to include it because the cover matched so well I haven't talked about it here before! Obviously it is very good and inspiring because duh it's Alexa Chung's. Also I am in love with the design, drawings & photos in the book!

5. Lipstick: I actually have no idea which brand this is let alone the name of the color. But my grandmother gave it and it is actually the lipstick I had been looking for! It is this reddish color but it isn't too bright so I can wear it as an every day lipstick.

6. New Faces Mix by Maison Kitsuné: I am the kind of person who is always in search for some new music because I always listen to the same song 10000x times until I absolutely can't stand that song anymore. So I was very delighted when I came across this mix by Maison Kitsuné! Fresh new talent never brings me down to make me happy. Also how cool does the cover look?



Love,
Ibe

4 years

Wow. As you've probably guessed from the title: what you are reading right now just turned 4 years today! And I turned 15 a week and one day ago. This is weird. I don't even know what to say right now. Four years, if this was a real child it would already talk fluently and throw birthday parties with cake and confetti. (Disclaimer: the cliché part is coming) And I just want to say that although I often act as if this blog is just an embarrassment composed of self-absorbed writing spaced by intervals of utter neglect, I do care, I really really really do. I care about the comments and sweet emails, I do care about all the amazing events I was invited to attend because of this blog, I do care about the wonderful people I met through this blog and who actually became dear friends (this goes out to you: Alice, Jonas and of course Ophelia) and most of all I do care about you; you guys who take the time to read this (or just look at the pictures, I won't judge) and be so great and smart and very cool. Thank you for the four beautiful years and let's hope there may come even more.

Love,
Ibe
