Slowly but surely, our apartment is going from work in progress to an actual home, and I’m loving every second of it. After weeks of waiting, our gorgeous velvet couch finally arrived and let me tell you, its even more beautiful in person!  Now we just need to find some art for that bare wall…

The Easiest Way to Spice Up a Simple Fall Look

The easiest way to spice up a simple fall look? Add a scarf! My favorite is this pale blue silk dream from Hermès, but really, any bright scarf will do the trick!

When it comes to keeping a minimal look interesting, it’s all in the details. Personally I love playing around with simple pieces with an edge, like this Acne shirt for example. The oversized bell sleeves are such a fun twist to the classic white shirt and make all the difference!

You might remember that I blogged about the sold out but oh-so-gorgeous Roberta Heels by Maryam Nassir Zadeh a while back? Well, they recently got restocked and I FINALLY managed to get a hold of a pair.
Pricey, but worth every penny!
