Image from GBP Facebook: AIM X GPBLately I have been obsessing over the “Hustle Hard”-sweater from Dutch based brand Green Paper Boys -also know by it’s shorter name GPB. The “Hustle Hard”-sweater from their ‘Dingin’ collection comes in heather grey and is made of 100% high quality Indonesian cotton. Not only do you as a wearer benefit from this cool urban shirt, also the local community in Indonesia, where the sweater is produced, benefits from your purchase. As I discovered GPB reserves a part of the profit for charity activities in Indonesia. Next to that they gift local children a ‘charity pack’ per item sold. Intended to stimulate children to do well in school and motivate them to aspire their dreams. A real case of feel good fashion.

Let's talk lazy sunday afternoons. I hope you all enjoyed the long easter weekend, I must confess I didn't do much with easter, I decided a long time ago that egg searching is not my forte but least I got to chance to chill and fully charge for another exiting week. To start of this short week I wanted to show my casual chic outfit, something I like to wear when it's typical dutch weather. Practical yet fashionable, oh how we love that combination here in Holland. Although these shoes are seriously making me crave some Barcelona sun, I felt pretty blessed when de sun was shining the whole day during easter. What did you do with easter?

Oh how I love my sneakers. This time I have the pleasure to add white Meyba sneakers to my shoe collection, about time I say since the last pair of white sneakers I bought is now already 1 year old. The pair BORN pair I received is from Spanish brand Meyba, a sportswearbrand some of you may know if you’re into soccer. Founded in the 40’s, Meyba is all about the Rich vintage heritage, high quality and sun kissed colours. A great example of all that is their Brand Movie.

It’s time for an outfit post inspired by a contradiction many fashionista’s face when buying cute looking clothes while still trying to keep an eye on sustainability. The contradiction between looking good while buying polluting clothes is one that inspired this outfit post. As much as I adore this Mickey Mouse sweater, I did feel guilty buying it from ‘not-so-sustainable’ retail chain Primark.
