To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.

This year will always be remembered by the Covid-19 virus, that is one thing I know for sure. The 2020s could have opted for a better start. In terms of style we started the first couple of months wearing sweats and to be honest it was nice. Until it really wasn’t. When those weeks had passed I turned to online shopping for answers. I was craving sequins, nice dresses and thought to myself, can anyone really have too many bags? I felt like a crazy person and looking back at it, I was. But one thing did not change, the world did not show any mercy, no matter how many shoes I got I had no places to wear them.
I’m very happy to welcome this fall for two reasons, number one is that it by far is my most fun clothing season. Number two is that even though we are not back to normal (whatever that is) at least I will have somewhere else than my living room to wear my best outfits. And even though the fall season equals darkness, why not shine a bit extra in colors, patterns and beautiful outwear?

My favorite piece last fall was the vest! And it looks like nothing has changed. I will kick-start fall by wearing it over a good dress and then just layer up underneath it as the season move forward. The combination sleeveless jacket (as I too like to call it) and a heavy knit is a favorite of mine.
Stand Studio is for sure one of my favorite brands when it comes to outerwear. I can talk about this forever, but I really love how easy it is to create a transeasonal (see what I did there) wardrobe by not limit garments to seasons. Mixing traditional summer clothes with autumn clothes (and all other seasons) is what it’s all about.
Why not combine a summer sports top together with a fur jacket?

Don’t be scared to mix colors like there was no tomorrow! People will smile when they see you and I the energy a good color combination will give you is priceless. It’s actually kind of strange how people chose dark colors for dark times, I mean imagine how bright the streets would be during rush hour in October if everyone wearing black swopped black for pink or orange?

I love the mini bag trend but I must say I’m happy to announce that the big bags are back this fall.
Finally your phone fits in your bag again, am I right?

I would consider this the perfect look if you want to wear colors but aren’t ready to go all in yet. This knit in a bright blue is perfect to match with a tone in tone outfit. Or why not blue jeans and a white shirt.
