We catch up with Netherlands-based style blogger Lucy de Boer of Lovely by Lucy.

You're on a first date, what shoe do you wear? A sneaker. I always wear sneakers, and I think on a first date it's important that you feel comfortable and be yourself, hence a sneaker.

What's one fashion rule you always break? To not wear sweats to work. I have some great knitted relax-trousers that work perfectly well outside the house as well.

When it comes to shoes, how much is too much to pay? I don't mind paying for quality, but when a shoe is just expensive because it's from a certain brand, not because of the material or the way it's made, that's when I draw a line.

Who is your favorite shoe designer? I love Acne Studios for their boots and quirky sneakers, but I'm also a big Balenciaga fan.

If you were a shoe, what shoe would you be? Definitely a sneaker.
