Down to the river


A couple of weeks ago,¬†Marijs and I went to the River Island salon show, where we had a look at the brand’s summer collection. Frankly, it makes us want to jump on a plane and go to the Bahamas. Or the River Island store, apparently, because I couldn’t help myself the next weekend and gave into a sweater and some cute sandals.

I must say that I really love River Island shoes, when you pick and choose well, you can do some great budget buys with excellent quality there. I already owned three pairs of RI shoes and they haven’t disappointed yet, so I have high hopes for these comfy summer sandals. I’ve displayed my shoes on one of the latest additions to my interior: these vintage suitcases. I already owned one of these in orange, and found it really handy to store things you don’t need that often, so when I decided to buy another one, my boyfriend suggested we bought five (there’s one more in our office).

The sweater is the kind of thing that I know I’ll wear tons. Most of the time, I have some real trouble finding jumpers that don’t make me look like a square marshmellow, so when I do find one, I wear it all.the.time. Friends, behold, you’ll get bored of this one. I already took it on a trip to Berlin last week, and this post is an excellent excuse to show you the first snaps from our weekend.

Anyway, back to the essence: check out some of our favorites from the show and tell us what you think!

Those shorts!

Those shoes!

Those sunglasses!

That bag!

That dress!

That turban!

More shoes!

And oh, that collar!
