Denim & Swooshes

Oh yes, the perfect combination: denim & swooshes. Tried to give the jacket, which is from Weekday’s latest men’s denim collection, a more sportive touch instead of the usual ‘casual’ thing, and I actually really like it. Especially with the velvet shirt underneath, for a more feminine look. At this moment I live in this jacket, which I use as a throw over on almost every Summer look. The nights are quite chilly over here, so this extra layer is def a lifesaver ;P. Scroll down for more looks and let me know what you think!

PS: Like the watch? Head over to Daniel Wellington and use ‘CHLOEALYSHEA’ at check-out for 15% off!

‘Get Neutral With Me’ | UN-CLUTTERED x Gardrobe Store

It’s no secret I often shop in my boyfriend’s closet, or find myself new treasures at the mens department. Wearing what you want, without any restrictions. That’s what fashion really means to me. I can already hear some guys thinking, so I have to borrow my girlfriend’s skirts now as well? No, that’s not totally what I mean of course (but cheers if you do so anyway!).

What I’m trying to get at, is completely blurring out the gender lines in fashion. And not only the part where we see unisex collections popping up all the time. But for gender as a subject to also be extended to in-store shopping experiences where traditional men and womens departments seem to blend or even disappear all together. No more awkward stares when I’m browsing at the traditional mens departments, or when I dive into a mens fitting room. But instead an open and welcoming vibe, a place where you can try whatever you like.

One of those stores is Gardrobe Store, located in my hometown Eindhoven, at the Strijp-S area. They sell a mix of fresh Scandinavian brands such as Hope, Wood Wood, Samsøe Samsøe, Henrik Vibskov and Stutterheim. A careful selection where Gardrobe aims to break those traditional gender boundaries as well. They even added a neutral section on their webshop. How cool is that ;)

Not only Gardrobe Store broadens their gender borders, some of the brands do as well. A good example is the Swedish Hope, who recently released a gender-neutral collection ‘Changes’. They continue their exploration with new sizing labels, (most) items are now marked in women- and mens sizes. Also denim brand Adnym brings unisex jeans to the table and the collections of Wood Wood easily fit for any gender beyond the spectrum.

Gender neutral clothing is not something new of course, but I do think we can highlight it more than ever. That’s why Gardrobe Store and I decided to collab together. Together we picked three neutral looks, including all kind of brands and mens or womens sizings. I hope you enjoy the results down below, and hopefully will expand your neutral garderobe even more ;)

Cotton Candy

A huge yes to this ‘Cotton Candy’ collab by Onitusuka Tiger and female sneaker boutique Naked. Both brands united to create this fresh retake on the iconic vintage tennis shoe. Summer has now officially begun with the pastel pink stripes.

See how I styled these sweet treats down below, including this cool boyfriend hoodie by GVNS (with the same cotton candy vibes all over!). A little shout out to them, as they’re not only a cool, upcoming female streetwear brand, but we also share our Indonesian roots. They’re from Bandung, the same city where my mom’s born. <33

Celebrating a decade of love in Lagos, Portugal

I’m very excited to share this visual diary of our trip to Lagos, Portugal, a few weeks ago. A special mini vacay, as my boy and I celebrated our tenth anniversary. Whoosh, a decade of love!

After browsing for quite some time to find the perfect destination to celebrate this huge milestone, we stumbled upon hotel Casa Mãe on Instagram. We immediately fell in love with the clean aesthetics of the white building and serene rooms. When we saw it included a bath for your own, a triangle pool, delicious organic foods and its location close to the beaches, we decided to go for it. And wow, what a place!

First up is this visual diary of all the sweet memories we made together. Lagos really mesmerised us. A lovely small town with picturesque houses, narrow roads and beautiful nature and scenery… and good food :). If you ever look for a not so touristy place in the Algarve, Lagos is your way to explore South Portugal like a local would. Enjoy!

How to style your jeans | three ways

Yep, that’s me. Wearing jeans. Three times! Somehow I almost never wear denim as I prefer wide, comfy and oversized trousers. But for once I decided to make some exceptions because every girl needs a pair of good jeans, right? I’m always struggling to find the perfect fit because I have legs for days. I know this is something people might get jaleous off, but believe me, it’s not always fun. Wether the denim is too short, or I can swim in it with the upper part being too loose for me. So yes, finding that perfect pair isn’t that easy for me.

So when FIVEUNITS – a Danish jeans brand from Copenhagen – approached me for a fun collab, I serously had my doubts. Not because of the brand, but considering the denim drama I just described. Eventually I was convinced to give it a try, and guess what. I’m really glad I did! Why? The jeans I picked don’t only fit my personal style, but also my tall tall legs. After this huge relieve, the fun part was about to start: the styling.

To be honest, this was a bit of a challenge for me as I’m used to my uber comfy PJ’ish trousers. The oversized silhouette I’m used to, sunddenly changes into a slim and fitted one. This asked for a different kind of approach. Which I – surprisingly – managed to succeed at, showing the results down below with you. So here it is, my mini ‘how to wear’ jeans guide for Spring. I hope it will inspire you, and be sure to check out FIVEUNITS to find your perfect match ;)!

Tourist in your own hometown

Spending a night away in your own hometown as a tourist, is something I’ve always wanted to experience. It allows you to see the city where you grew up, from a different point of view. So when the new Student Hotel invited us for a night over, my boy & I obviously couldn’t resist.

The Student Hotel recently opened their doors in Eindhoven, and now welcomes everyone to their hybrid utopia. Not only students as you might think, but also curious city-explorers, tourists, young professionals and locals. This new presence didn’t go unnoticed. As a matter of fact: you could call them the new eyecatcher in our ‘skyline’. The building points almost 80 metres into the sky, which makes it an impressive appearance. They host different facilities; from a gym to a library, long & short-stay rooms, lounge spots and bar-restaurant The Pool for some appetizing breakfast, lunch and dinner. Oh, and cocktails!

So Jordi and I grabbed some stuff together (what do you pack for one night when living around the corner?) and checked-in on a Saturday night. But from the moment we entered the building, we already felt the touristic vibes coming. A brand new surrounding, stepping into a fresh room, packing out your bags (I ended up bringing way too much stuff oops) and eventually enjoying a dazzling view from the 23rd floor. After we were settled in for a bit, we went downstairs to The Pool where a fulfilling dinner awaited us. We ended our night sipping on cocktails, and more cocktails… (And a really bad movie at the cinema, but let’s just skip that part.)

The relaxing vibe of the hotel de-stressses you instantly. The staff is super friendly, the guests are easy-going and the design interior surprises you. Especially the pink hallway (!!!) and yellow accents in The Pool are refreshing. And of course I’m a sucker for industrial ceilings, concrete floors, stairs and bright daylight. All that combined creates a lust for the eye.

Being a tourist in our own city, is def a concept we’ll be revisiting in the future. A getaway around the corner, but you still feel renewed & inspired when coming home again :)! Thanks TSH for having us!

Swedish melancholy

Normally I’m not a fan of those rainy days, but I really start to like them lately… When I see the dark clouds coming in, I’ve noticed my heart makes a little jump. And that’s probably because it’s a reason for me to pull out this pink raincoat by the Swedish Stutterheim. Known by their beautiful handmade raincoats, which are always a timeless and simple reflection. Even though they aim for functional rainwear, they always make it a lust for the eye as well.

I paired this Mosebacke model with a simple grey culotte and soft sweater with the same pastel tones. A simple but outstanding Spring look for the unexpected Dutch weather. So hey. Let’s embrace the rain ;)

Urban Aesthetics with ONU

I would like to introduce you to ONU. They create everyday pieces combined with performance elements. A perfect blend as I love to wear sportive basics, especially when it carries functional features as well. When I saw their second collection – designed by Christina Liao – their breathable raincoat immediately caught my eye.

From the outside the coat looks like a normal raincoat with minimal aesthetics. But when you take a closer look you will notice the coat features multiple design secrets towards motion and durability. The hidden seams enable movement, there’s a quick magnetic closure and a waist drawcord for a sleeker look. The outer shell is breathable and made waterproof to keep you protected. Perfect to face unexpected weather, something you def need in my country during this season.

For this look I’ve tried to style the technical raincoat in a playful vibe. Surrounded by modern architecture, I choose an outfit that totally blends in with the urban environment. Oversized cuts, loose trousers, multiple layers and a slight touch of femininity to it by pairing it up with a shirt dress. Exactly how I would wear it during a normal – rainy’ish – day.
