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.
Not being as out and about as I usually am (not at all that is) I spend a lot of time browsing. It’s the Covid-19 approved way of window shopping. Also perhaps a bit more wallet friendly.
But, lockdown or not, seasons are changing quickly right now and the spring wardrobe I spent winter fantasizing about hasn’t really been put to use. So now I thought, better start picturing those summer looks instead. Am I a crazy person for thinking it’s almost more fun to plan my wardrobe than actually wearing it? I probably should get help with that.
What would summer be without a summer bag?
I personally prefer a wicker bag for summer, but I am starting to get excited about canvas too.
Taking it to the beach is so obvious though, which is why I love carrying beachy bags in the city. So crisp with a white shirt and sandals.
A night out
May sound banal, but I am longing for a good night out with friends, having drinks, not knowing where the night will take us. This feels super far away right now. But I cannot wait.
I am completely obsessed with everything knits and crochet right now. I want dresses, skirts, co-ord sets etc etc. I think I need to pick up my middle school hobby: crochet.
These are full on man repelling aren’t they?
I love them. They look like they have a life of their own.
A spring leather jacket
New season, new jacket. And Toteme’s latest leather drop is exactly what I want to wrap myself in during cold spring mornings and chilly summer nights.
Black or beige? I want both.
Sweatshorts are the new sweatpants?
These are probably on the top of my wishlist since I am spending a lot of time in joggers these days. And the warmer it gets, well the warmer I get too.
Unfortunately I cannot catch a break with Pangaia and their limited stock. I never make it in time before the sold out sign appears. To be continued.
Loewe x Paula’s Ibiza Sunglasses back in stock
Last summer I gave my phone water damage caused by damp every time I saw these Loewe x Paula’s sunglasses on Sophia, Hanna and Linn.
Now they are back in stock and I am awfully close to hitting that add to cart button.
