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!
And oh, that collar!
