This image (above) of an all black outfit inspired me to do this ‘all black chic’ post. Below you can find some examples of outfits entirely in black. Black is such a versatile color (suitable for various occasions) and it is therefor the most reliable color in our wardrobe. Wearing all black is just très chic!
I’m loving this peasant style tunic with necklaces in various styles and lengths. Below you can find how you can create this perfect bohemian chic look.

If you are in your twenties it is easy to assemble a summer wardrobe as anything looks good on you when you’re that young. But when you enter your thirties and forties it get more difficult to find stylish summer outfits, at least that’s my experience. I like JOIE as their fashion is casual but also understatedly chic. Their designs are inspired by the Southern California lifestyle and its casual, yet sophisticated way of life. The JOIE concept has always been “Casual, Comfortable and Luxurious.” Each piece that is designed encompasses a balance of these three key elements…one cannot exist without the other. Here are a few of my picks!
Is it a scarf or is it a poncho? I don’t know but what I do know is that I love my Coisa! I was happy to receive a Coisa to review and I have been wearing it non stop. I love how you can wear the Coisa in various ways to create different looks. The materials used are very soft, I also like the beautiful color tones (I have the silver one). After the success of the Coisa Original the Coisa Square was recently introduced. All items are made with love by skilled craftsmen in a small workshop in Portugal. The Coisa website is in Dutch but if you don’t speak Dutch and you want to know more you can send an email to info[at]coisa.nl.
Are stripes hot? I have been seeing a lot of stripes lately, mostly in black and white. Not only in fashion but also in interiors. Here is an impression of ‘stripy things’ that I have found online.
