Matching nature’s colors

This week I went on a short trip to Switzerland with the fam (dog included as you can see). When I pack my suitcase, I always think of outfits that will look cute for possible shoots. I know, I have a problem but oh well. I packed something for basically every activity. But when we were going to hike I suddenly remembered that I didn’t bring sportswear. So, I took it upon myself and dressed to impress all the hikers ;). It was pretty cold, so I wore a turtleneck sweater and a jacket. Soon I realized that this was way too warm as I was dying while climbing the steep mountain paths. Disclaimer, I am not the most sporty person out there. But hey, everyone has their strengths and weaknesses. So, I looked pretty ridiculous between all those sporty people but what can I do about it right. And in the end, it paid off because the mountain was absolutely gorgeous! We made a ton of pictures already but when we made it to the lake, we were all in our element. We were making photos of the landscape (and ourselves) the whole time. It was so pretty that I cannot not share these with you!

On to the outfit! As I mentioned before, I was thinking that it was really cold, so I wore a warm sweater with a turtleneck. The green color of this sweater is to die for, and it was a coincidence that it matched perfectly with the colors of nature. I wore these ripped jeans with my Gucci Marmont belt. Believe me, this Gucci belt has been the best purchase ever. It elevates every outfit and it is functional as well. I absolutely love it and can’t live without it anymore! These shoes are the best ones ever. I designed them myself two years ago and they match perfectly with my style. The jacket brings this outfit together I think. I love long jackets with this kind of design and I like the transition into a leopard print at the bottom. It’s subtle yet it gives this jacket some extra spark. The inside of Ted Baker jackets is something out of this world, it’s amazing! It’s a shame however that you cannot really see it. I matched this outfit with my Karl Lagerfeld bag, but my dog Brody is literally the best accessory you can have, but he does take the spotlight away from me but that’s fine. He’s such a pretty model.

What do you love more? The outfit or the dog?

The Karl Lagerfeld K/Holiday Shoulder Bag

Karl Lagerfeld K/Holiday Street StyleKarl Lagerfeld is one of the most celebrated designers of the 21st century. 

Karl Lagerfeld is a fashion icon that I think everyone knows or surely has heard off. He’s known for his cutting-edge and somewhat different approach to fashion. What I admire most about him, is the fact that next to his own signature brand, he is also the creative director of Chanel and Fendi. Like how is that even humanly possible right? Many fashion gurus therefore see him as one of the most celebrated designers of the 21st century. Karl Lagerfeld, the signature brand, its aesthetic combines timeless classics with a modern, fun (somewhat cheeky) twist. What I love about this brand is that the ready-to-wear collections are rather affordable. For the relatively low price points, you’re getting perfect quality.

The K/Klassik shoulder bag is one of the most popular bags of the fashion house. This design is sold out quite a lot, but that’s simply because the bag is so functional yet super stylish! The silhouette of this bag perfectly combines style and function. I personally feel like every woman should own at least one Karl Lagerfeld bag!

Karl Lagerfeld K/Holiday Shoulder Bag

The K/Klassik shoulder bag comes in many designs. There are always the leather, more basic designs and then there are the limited editions that are featured once in a while. My bag is a limited edition, namely the Holiday Shoulder Bag. I wouldn’t necessarily buy the basic K/Klassik, but the boldly reimagined design of my bag is something I simply cannot resist! The KARL signature in stitched shearling was an absolute deal breaker. How can you not love that detail? I think it gives something extra to the design for sure!

This beauty features a foldover front flap, a top handle and a detachable leather strap. This offers versatility as you can wear this bag in multiple ways. Wear it as a crossbody, or simply wear it over your shoulder when you’re on the go. But you can also detach the strap and wear the bag by holding the top handle. This will create a more sophisticated and chicer look. This makes the bag perfect for day and night activities. The bag is furthermore super practical, as mentioned before. This is one of the largest crossbodies I own, you can truly put a lot in it! The interior furthermore features a slot pocket, a front panel pocket and on the back, there is a pocket as well. Super handy right!

Would you go for the K/Klassik or would you rather prefer a limited edition?

The Céline Trio

Céline Trio Small Bordeaux

Céline is known for its classic, minimalistic designs…

Céline is a high fashion brand that is known for its minimalistic design. The brand rarely uses big, flashy logos. On the contrary, each design only has the simple gold-plated Céline logo at the top of the bag. That’s it! You either love it or you hate it, but I love it. It’s so minimalistic and classic, something different than the usual designs that scream the brands name. One of my all-time favorites is the Céline Trio. The design is absolutely beautiful, and the color and functionality of the bag are amazing as well.  This is a perfect example of a bag that is ready to be worn every hour of the day. You can wear it during the day, but you can also wear it when you’re going to a party. There is however one major downside to this beauty that I’ll get into in a bit.

The bag itself is super functional! It comes across as a really small crossbody but it’s quite spacious. Due to the 3 ‘bags’ in one, you have a lot more room than is initially expected. Each pocket has its own zipper, which is super handy of course! The Céline Trio is basically a bag that every woman should have in their wardrobe, if you ask me! There are so many beautiful colors that it becomes hard to choose… Name pretty much every color you want, the brand has it designed for you! I chose this beautiful burgundy color, as this was (and still is) one of my favorite colors. Especially combined with the gold Céline logo.

There was only one major downside to this bag, and that is the material. The leather is so extremely soft that it scratches really easily. Damages from within, such as a key pressing against the front, can cause damages. This is of course not a bad thing per se, but it can be annoying when you’re a perfectionist just like me. However, Céline realized that this became a bigger problem and the brand therefore gave their customers an alternative. The Céline Trio now comes in multiple materials. So, it is possible to buy this amazing bag in a tougher material, taking away the only con.

Are you a fan of minimalistic, classic designs? Then Céline definitely is the perfect brand for you! Would you rock the Céline Trio or would you rather own a, for example, Gucci bag?

The Gucci Marmont Velvet Shoulder Bag

Gucci Marmont Velvet Shoulder BagThis bag is the perfect mix between functionality and femininity… 

Ever since Alessandro Michele became the creative director of Gucci, the brand has been booming! There are always so many stunning pieces in each collection that it, sometimes, becomes hard to keep track of all the IT-bags. The collection that has probably had the most success is the Gucci Marmont Collection. This collection became huge pretty much the minute the brand released it. The bags especially are breathtaking! But my personal favorite is the Gucci Marmont Velvet Shoulder Bag.

This bag is just amazing. It’s quite simple yet very sophisticated. The Marmont Collection is mostly made out of leather but there are a few designs that are made of velvet. The velvet texture gives an extra spark to the bag if you ask me. Yes, it is more of a hassle to own because you cannot wear this bag when it’s raining but to me, that’s totally worth it! The bag is quite simple, but this means that the details that are present, will stand out even more. The chevron quilting of the bag is really pretty and combined with the GG hardware, it becomes phenomenal. Fun fact, the GG hardware used for this collection is not something new. Gucci actually got its inspiration from a buckle that the brand designed in the 1970s. This is something that can be quite tricky, as nowadays, everything needs to feel modern. But this is exactly the case for this bag!

Another cute detail is that there is a heart featured on the back of the bag. It’s not something that is shown to others that much, but I think that this is a cute detail to have just for yourself! The bag is super functional while also mixed with a touch of femininity. You can wear this beauty as a crossbody (my absolute fave) or you can wear it over the shoulder. The strap features a golden chain strap and a leather patch. The gold combined with the velvet is, in my opinion, something that you can never go wrong with. You might think that this bag is rather small but it can actually hold more than you would think. The only downside is that there is just one interior zipper pocket. So, if you like to put everything into different pockets, this bag might not be the perfect match for you…

Lastly, the Gucci Marmont Velvet Shoulder Bag comes in three different colors. Namely, black, fuchsia & petrol blue. If you want a bag that you can match with literally any outfit you’d like, I think black would be the go-to option. Do you prefer to stand out from the crowd and love to make a bag the center of attention? Then definitely go for one of the colorful beauties!

Which color would you pick?
