Meet lovely ultra cool Kimberly, a 20 years old medicine student and blogger from London.
We ♥ Kimberly’s spring street style.
Check her Clothes Hose blog and follow @kimberbubs on Instagram.
She’s got a great taste for music too. This is what she was listening to when we bumped into her.
How would you describe your style?
“I like to look completely different from one day to the next, I’ll wear these jeans like this, then maybe next time just with a t-shirt and trainers (like the outfit of a little boy!) and I also love late 1970s punk style. Normally there is someone in my head that I am channelling
On the other side of the coin I study in the hospital so most of the time I have to look a bit more friendly and professional. On these days I like 50’s and 60’s style work wear.
So yeah, all eras and changing every day.”
Wishlist for Summer 2016?
“I’m gong to a lot of British festivals volunteering with Oxfam so I really just want a tent with a good ground sheet.”
Favorite fashion labels?
“Oh I don’t have the money for any real labels, but then I also have guilt about throwaway fashIon and sweatshop labour so I avoId everythng by mostly buying second hand. However, the designer that I would love to buy from is Clio Peppiatt. She has beautiful clothes, is from my neck of the woods and involved in lots of important causes like FGM prevention and counseling.”
Coming from a fashion capital, how would you describe the locals clothes style?
“Well in London lots of people look the same but there are more people so you see the weird and wonderful ones a bit more. Here you have to find them. I think the Dutch style is very effortless and cool and I love the norm-core aspect with all the fluffy grey polo necks and long coats. I am definitely craving more days in perfect simple clothes when I am here. London women can do this style too but there are more subcultures represented there.”
And the boys dress sense?
“There are very few boys here that dress really well, I like it when men think a bit outside the box but here it is all very predictable. Although I was at a Northern Soul Evening in Vera last night where lot of the guys had made a real effort, really cool.”
KIMBERLY’S FAVORITES IN GRONINGEN
second hand shopping: Mamamini, Goud Goed and Mijn Tafel.
fashion: Stardust is hipster and I can’t afford it but I love it anyway.
shop: Danish shop Søstrene Grene is the best for home wares, art supplies and tea.
lunch: De Soepwinkel is really good soup, generous with bread and close to the library.
for a break: De Uurwerker does the very best hot chocolate, its like a whole desert.
diner: I’m a student so De Pastafabriek, because it’s cheap, delicious and relatively healthy. De Herbivoor is also really good and the people there are so lovely.
nightlife: Vera, The GYM makes me feel so underground and kewl, Warhol. De Drie Gezusters / Three Sisters is a cliche but as long as you don’t go into the middle sister it feels like you’re in a film from the 20’s, but with more t-shirts and drunk Irish people.
geheimtip: Het Concerthuis is really good for all meals (their breakfast is vast and amazing) and lovely for meeting for drinks.
