LAY IT FLAT

Me and the Bean are spending some days at my parents place, mainly to get the Bean away from all the dust, mess and pieces of tile that make up the majority of our household these days. The kitchen revamp is pretty much on track these days, which means that it is really affecting our day-to-day life. So when my dad came for a “let me have a look at that Bean” visit, we jumped at the opportunity and joined him on his return. The H is staying home, working his buns of trying to get as much as possible sorted before we’re returning this weekend. If we are lucky we might just have our new kitchen up and running as a fully functional finished product by next week.

This week we’re getting a guy to do all our cutting and fixing of the wooden counter tops for us, there will also be a plumber coming by to take care of the pipes {a bit afraid he will tell us to change all the piping in our apartment, it looks rather half-way-dead to me} and we are deciding on what to do about the tiles, if the H is going to do it on his own or if we’re gonna hire someone to come in and do it for us. As we took down the old tiles and the wallpaper on the wall that will be fully tiled we realized that there is a lot of odd areas, which will mean a lot of wet saw time and precision. Gonna have some people come in to give us some estimated costs, if it is not too steep then the luxury of having someone just come in and whoop it all together may just end up being to tempting. So far we’ve not acquired anybody to help us out with the revamp of the apartment, but after the arrival of the Bean it suddenly seems more appealing.

Whilst the H is at the revamp helm, I’m spending my days in my hometown strolling about, catching up with some family and friends, basically just enjoying my time. Feeling rather spoiled right now, full-time motherhood greatness! Spent the majority of yesterday in my aunts cafe drowning in coffee and pomegranate lemonade, wandering around in circles enjoying a bit of sea air, shopping for “decorative” items to put in the kitchen once it’s done… And of course I’ve had some time to do some inspiration hunt, and right now I’m enjoying flat lays, maybe a tad too much. To say it like this, when it comes to inspiration, not much can beat a great flat lay. I really need to hone in on some flat lay skills! Inspiration flow!

STYLE FILE: THE MAXI DRESS

It’s my favorite season, the everyday maxi dress season! I can’t wait to fill up my maxi dress quota this season. I am addicted to the simplicity of a great maxi, simply throw it on add a jacket, and you’re ready to go. I’ve also figured out that it is a great motherhood staple, I have a couple of simple jersey maxis that makes for a quick wardrobe fix in the mornings, especially when the Baby Bean is fussy!

Here are some maxis I want to add to my wardrobe this spring…

STYLE FILE: THE SWEATSHIRT

I am a big fan of sweatshirts, still I have very few of them in my own wardrobe, so it is high on my “to-get-list” post-pregnancy. I recently came home from Weekday with this and thisand I’ve worn them almost every day… Something about the comfort, but also the fact that I really like how they look. Nothing easier than throwing a handsome sweatshirt on before heading out in some great spring weather! So sweatshirts are high on my list of items to add to my new, more minimalist wardrobe, and here you have some sweatshirt inspiration I’ve been hoarding.

STYLE FILE: WHITE ON WHITE

Time for another style file, and today I’ll share some white on white inspiration with you. I always find my self drawn to images of white on white, this counts both in the fashion department and in the interior department. I do not see my self pulling of many white on white looks in the near future, with the arrival of the baby bean and all – but one can dream, no?

The season rapidly changing to a warmer and sunnier time also draws me more to the idea of wandering about in white summer dresses… Still a couple of months away, but I am ready for it!

STYLE FILE: LBD

I am back on the Style File, and today it is all about another one of my favorite wardrobe staples, the little black dress.

I am generally a fan of black dresses, and I have a few already, but still feel like I can add a couple to my collection. I want black dresses in all shapes and lengths, so I have one for every occasion. Here is a bunch of visual inspiration I’ve gathered, to keep me looking for that perfect LBD…

STYLE FILE: THE SHIRT DRESS

I’ve decided to create a new post category based on my new work-in-progress, the minimalist wardrobe… It will basically be a style inspiration post devoted to the items I want to fill my wardrobe with. Today my focus is my main wardrobe obsession these days, the shirt dress.

I just can’t get enough of shirt dresses, or over-sized shirts I can also wear as a dress. I must admit, it has become one of my maternity staples as well – so far I’ve managed to avoid buying one single maternity piece. Right now I have at least 5 shirt dresses hanging in my closet, and they are frequently used. It feels like one of those pieces you can just throw on with not much else happening, and you are still sorted for the day… A shirt dress also transitions perfectly from day to night with just some simple tweaks, like a change of shoes or throwing on a statement necklace.

Here is my shirt dress inspiration board, enjoy!
