While all my homely belongings slowly make their way over the ocean soon to be placed in nice new surroundings I have discovered H&M Home. I didn’t even know there was such a thing!
Animals with hats on, fake fur, cows, rabbits and chunky knit throw blankets are just my style and I am sure a pillow with a racoon in glasses should go unnoticed? Even though I’ve been threatened with death if I add another throw cushion to our couch or bed, which is fair enough considering we had to buy another couch just to accommodate all the cushions.
The first thing I noticed when we arrived in Amsterdam was how stylish everyone looked (and I mean everyone. Last week Friday I volunteered as a teacher at an international school and one of the 5 year olds in my company had Burberry pants on!) One of the trends that stood out most were the sneakers, Nike Air Max to be more specific. Worn with anything, these stand out.
Inspired by blogger Karen Blanchard at Where Did U Get That? ankle boots are perfect for autumn and winter, with skirts and shorts, jeans and dresses. Flat or heeled, vintage or modern she’ll wear them and look fabulous while doing it.

A style I love most. Feminine paired with a touch of masculinity in the form of blazers, brogues, moccasins and structured trousers. Despite chilly ankles in winter, I think brogues need to become a part of my wardrobe right now.
I don’t know if this old news but I just came across this Stella McCartney mohair jumper and oversized coat and I almost died! Its gorgeous and the colours are perfect for any outfit.
This is the top of the list winter must have with a lovely oversized price (€780) so for now these will have to stay in my virtual cupboard and maybe, if I find them in a shop I’ll PPS them and get to wear it at least once in my life.
