EXPLORING EUROPE | PROEFFABRIEK



So, a while back now I took a trip to the Netherlands to visit my sister, and as well as doing the usual visit to Amsterdam I went to see her new business in Veghel. I'd never heard of the place, but I'd been told of a cool industrial style building called Proeffabriek housing shops, cafes and workshops nearby that I just had to visit. I was sure it was being over hyped a little, but I'm now the first to admit how wrong I was. Hands down the best "shopping centre" I've ever been in!


Although the building is still being refurbished and spaces are yet to be filled, what's already there definitely needs to be used as influence on future centres and refurbishments of industrial buildings. In terms of shops, there's not a huge amount to see, but The Netherlands know how to do food shops and even their Jumbo supermarket in the centre has a Sushi bar. The cafe spaces are also worth a visit, serving a LOT of food that caught my eye, and most importantly to me - an excellent iced coffee! And of course, the restored industrial elements around the building were the perfect back drop to some sneaky outfit shots...

THE FIRST SIGNS OF WINTER



Oh look, it's that coat again. I told you you'd be seeing a lot more of this! While it's not exactly thick enough for these frosty mornings we've been having, by adding just a few winter accessories means I can still hold on to wearing it while the temperature drops just a few more degrees. Firstly this red bag, which I've had since summer but only just got in to wearing as a pop of *festive* colour! I love how it looks against the check and alongside the pale denim, but most importantly how it perfectly pairs with a red lip!


Next, I've added the mother of all bobble hats! It is seriously the thickest, warmest hat I've ever ever owned. Like, probably warm enough for arctic conditions. And that bobble, quite possibly the fluffiest most ridiculously sized bobble ever but you know what, still think I'm a little bit in love... So, it's totally worth the major hat hair it gives you.
*ALSO just gotta add this in here... BECCY, I'm never gonna forgive you for the comment you made on the above photo! ;)


Last but by no means least, these boots - my first ever pair of Docs! I was after a pair that were slightly less chunky than the original ones and I'm not in to the usual yellow stitching, so when I came across these I just knew they were the ones. I was full on expecting them to rip my feet to shreds while the leather softened but I've not had a single blister with these. Also, I don't think I've ever had a pair of shoes that have had so many compliments, and they just seem to go with anything - from distressed denim, to a rolled up pair of trousers and even a LBD! The absolute perfect winter shoe!
