Wearing preppy plaid and leather today; preppy and edgy. Talking about preppy edgy: That’s the perfect way to describe this trench, which I got on sale at the Mango Outlet last summer. Trenchcoats are kind of preppy, but the leather material makes it very edgy. Me likey! Not sure if everybody likes it though, since it might remind some people of Inspector Gagdet or The Matrix, but I couldn’t care less. I just couldn’t wait to wear this baby and now it’s getting slightly colder I finally can. Hooray!

Lots of love,

Ps: Hooray, my mom turned 50 today! Happy birthday, mama!

    hi there! I’m coming to exchange to Leeuwarden after few weeks and I’m big fan of fashion and shopping. I have noticed that in Leeuwarden does not have many shops so I would like to ask where is nearest place to do some shopping? And where I can get easy by bus or train? I would be happy if you could answer to me :))

      Hi Sohvi! So wonderful that you’re coming to Leeuwarden for exchange, exciting! Leeuwarden is a nice small and humble city, but indeed doesn’t offer a lot in meanings of shopping. Such a waste! Anyway, Groningen is a 35 (the fast one) or 48 (the slower one) minute train ride away from Leeuwarden. It’s very easy to get there, just hop in the train and get out at the last stop. Plus you can just walk in to the city centre from the station. Groningen offers a lot more, like Mango, Zara and a small section of H&M Trend (H&M Vismarkt). Still Groningen isn’t a shopping walhalla. If you’ve got free public transport I can really recommend Utrecht (2 hours train ride) and Amsterdam (2 hours and like 30 minutes train ride). I love Amsterdam, I always do my shopping in Amsterdam. Amsterdam has everything: The biggest Zara of Europe, lots of H&M Trend, many Mango stores, a Monki, an Urban Outfitters and a Weekday in and around the Kalverstraat. I can also really recommend visiting de Nine Streets for good vintage (like Episode, which is also situated in Utrecht), but also stores like Filippa K en COS. It’s worth the travel! :D

      Just curious: Where are you from? :)


      • sohvi

        thanks for comprehensive response to my question! Biggest zara in Europe sounds very good! ;> I’m definitely going to visit on Amsterdam as many time as my school let me! I’m from Finland!

          That’s so funny! I just went to Finland, and now you’re coming to my hometown! When will you arrive? If you’d ever like to meet, just say so and we could :)


          • sohvi

            Yes I saw your post about Helsinki! What were you doing here in cold and dark country? I arrive next friday. I fly to Bremen. It would be nice to meet you and get to know local tradition’s and stuff! :)

      Hi Elke, ik denk van de HEMA en anders van de Kruidvat. Maar tegenwoordig heb ik er meer van de HEMA, dus die kans acht ik groter, haha!

    Trenchcoats are classic, and the fact that yours is leather makes it a statement piece as well! Add an accent like plaid and voila – instant outfit! (shoes required, boots recommended ;-)
