Worth a visit: JUSU Brothers

Untitled

Oh how I love finding those places that slowly make a city feel like home. 

It's something like a park close by where you always go for a picnic or an alley that makes you smile every time you walk past it. Or maybe it's a cafe in your favorite neighborhood where you want to go time after time. 

The latest find is this lovely juice bar/eatery in Notting Hill. Definitely worth a visit (or two..) !

JUSU Brothers
147-149 Westbourne Grove

Hello hello ! 

A little radio silence occurred as it took a little longer to get a wifi as I had hoped. But now we're back in business and while I've been gone, summer has arrived. That means getting my favorite skirts and summer dresses out of the closet !

Currently loving this laid back combo of an oversized Levi's jacket and the prettiest summer dress I own.

Right now I'm finding blazers to be the new wardrobe stable of mine.
When the weather is not quite warm enough for wearing summer clothing but not cold enough for proper coats, blazer is the answer. And like most pieces of clothing, I like mine a little oversized. 

And to not be all black and white, I combined these brown block heeled beauties to the outfit - just to make it a little more interesting. Spring uniform at it's best.

An ode to ordinary things.

When you have to stress about finding a place to live in, storing your luggage for an unknown amount of time, finding people to call your own from the never ending group of strangers and adjusting to new routines and new surroundings you appreciate the ordinary things. The things you don't even notice when you have them, because you are so used to them. 

Currently I'm thankful for my favorite coffee cups and for my roommate who shares my passion for breakfast and understands the importance of things like good toilet paper or a proper dish brush. I'm thankful for my friends who send me long voice messages and talk with me on the phone even though I'm a few time zones and many many kilometers away. I'm thankful for my new comfy blanket, which was on sale exactly when I needed to buy one. 

And so many other things, I guess one just has to focus on the good.

Due to my current life situation, I've been quite stressed lately. While also being excited about this new chapter in my life, there has been so much to do, so many things to sort out and just so many things happening, that I haven't had the time or the energy to share inspiration here on my blog.

Luckily I have photos to speak for themselves, inspiration will strike eventually and I'll definitely be here then to share it with you. Meanwhile I'll be updating my instagram @dejiss more regularly.

A funny coincidence happened while wandering around Notting Hill the other day. 

I was wearing this mustard colored velvety blazer as we ran into a group of girls having dinner outside a cute restaurant. One of the girls was wearing pants, in the exact same mustard colored velvet and the girls had noticed it before us. So as we walked past them, the girl with the velvet trousers smiled and said "you're my other half" - a comment that definitely made me smile. 

Currently obsessed with wearing these ripped jeans, a white t-shirt and a variation of a blazer or a knitted cardigan. And the weather here couldn't be more perfect for that.

LONDON

Untitled

Hello from my new home city. 

Sadly this is not a picture of my new apartment entrance, but the best part about pretty buildings is that you can enjoy them even if you don't live in them. And that's what I've been doing lately, I've went on long walks and gotten to know London a little better.

I'm slowly getting to some kind of rhythm and that means getting back on track with my blogging. Can't wait to share some coffee shop tips and outfit posts from here !

Moving date. 

I mean that is crazy. Feels just right yet really scary, but I guess you just have to do what your heart tells you to do. 

With all the packing and things going on right now, talking about my outfit feels quite irrelevant. But I think I'll just leave you with these photos and with me telling that this will probably be my spring uniform - basically I just combined all my current favorites into one outfit. And a big hurray to the roads not being slippery anymore, I can wear these patent leather beauties again without a constant danger of falling down.

And next time I'll be posting, I'll be in London.  
I mean - whaaaat ?!
