Wearing: Pouch Bag by Stieglitz, Anecdote cardigan (buy similar here), black basics by H&M and golden earrings with black stone from Eenvoud Amsterdam.

Last week, I cycled across Koningsplein and was closely paying attention to all the people that were trying to run over this chaotic crossing plaza as well. But then the most dangerous thing happened: I got distracted! I got distracted because of a beautiful leather shopper that was hanging over the shoulder of a stranger. I parked my bike and walked right into that woman and complimented her on her...

Today I carry my bag and a box. Today is the day that I finish the first chapter of the memoirs of my career. Today was the last day working as a lawyer at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. As you can see, I walk away with a big smile on my face, being thankful for the great time I had here, the large possibilities that were offered and my colleagues...
