parisienne or scottish?


i’ve been more into fashion again lately, reading about it and just admiring cool clothes on pinterest and on real people.
we spent a few days at my grandparents’ last week and i love to dig into my grandma’s old closet. so many vintage treasures! so one day i found this sandy coat and i fell in love. i also found these matching beret and scarf which make me feel verrie berrie paris but also have a clear scottish vibe. gotta love the mixture of aesthetics. and this rainbow sweater was also a wonderful find. a cool fun fact is that i saw a picture in my grandparents’ house where my grandma was holding me as a baby, while she was wearing the sweater. and i distinctly thought, hey that’s a cool sweater, i wonder if she still has it. and she did. the jeans in the pictures are secondhand and the docs are ethical and vegan, from this brand.:)
we went to the beach and it was windy and we took pictures. i want to do more outfit posts again, just for the sake of it, because i love clothes and i love photography, and just as an inspiration. so, enjoy the lookbook!

i wish you a 2019 filled with love and cool thriftstorefinds, xxxx charlie Continue reading “parisienne or scottish?”

how to be confident :) 12 practical tips


hi lovies, it’s been a while again!

a few days ago, a girl came up to me. i had always looked up to her, at how easily she talked to everyone and her amazing laugh and she is just super sweet. she came up to me and asked if i used to be insecure. how i got better at being self confident. it was weird because to me, she really didn’t seem like someone with insecurities. of course, everyone has them, but i tend to forget that. i tend to think that everyone feels so great about themselves and that everyone is in relationships but me and i tend to forget that that is not the case. it’s important to remember that everyone is going through battles that you have no clue about so you should always be as kind as possible, to everyone. even to unkind people, they probably need it most. anyways, i thought i’d write again because writing > all else and because i want to help that girl and everyone else who might need help feeling stronger about themselves and also as a gentle reminder for myself, because yes, most of the time i’m confident lately, but far from always.
