All White | Scheveningen

Good morning and happy Wednesday, Everyone! How is your week going so far?

I just wanted to say hello and share a few images from our day at Scheveningen Beach, as I said before, one of our all-time favorite beach destinations (see blog post) and probably the most beloved stretch of sand in Holland, between The Hague and the sea. For today’s look I am wearing a white linen blend suit and my new big favorite, the  statement T-shirt with red “1972” slogan. 😉

The leather pencil skirt

Hello Everyone and happy Wednesday! How is your week going so far?

If you don’t own a leather pencil skirt yet, it’s time to get on it! Not only are they empowering , but they just look amazing on all bodies and are easy to style. A trend with this much staying power is worth a bigger investment, but even if you don’t want to drop the money on real leather or a designer label there are still lots of options that will keep you looking amazing and on-trend for a long time.

Just give Pink a chance!

 

Good morning Everyone and happy Thursady! How is your week going so far?

Guess what’s hot this spring? All things pink!

 

 And what’s not to love about pink? It goes with everything and makes you look fresher than fresh!

 

There has always been something… juvenile about this color, traditionally associated with hyper-femininity (formerly the preserve of Barbie) but, it’s 2017 and people are wearing what they love. So it’s no surprise that pink has been reclaimed by designers, editors, and industry movers, positioning this color at the center of their aesthetics. The prayers of girly girls everywhere have been answered: pink is the unofficial color of the year!

Good morning Everyone and happy Sunday! I just wanted to say hi and share a few new images from ous visit to the Vlindorado butterfly garden, yesterday.  

Last week I noticed  these pair of jeans (with reversible sequins on the front!) in  the H&M online store  and just couldn’t resist the urge. I mean, I never had a pair of sequin pants before but what a fabulous  item to have in your closet!

Sequins are undergoing a major comeback, so be on the lookout for more of it soon! For this look, I decided to pair the jeans with a black ruffle top. To finish off the look, I chose black ankle boots and an oversized bomber jacket.

You have to remember though that sequins are a big statement. So it’s imperative you keep the rest of your look very minimal and stick to neutrals.

What trends do you spy being a big thing in 2017? Let me know in the comments below!

Another Black & White

Hello Everyone and happy Tuesday! How is your week going so far?

Since we haven’t shot any outfits in the past few days (oh, how I hate the flu!), I found this older look we shot a few weeks ago to share with you.

If you have been following my blog for some time now, you may already know how much I love  to create a contrast clothing combination, often by wearing black and white outfits.These outfits can be either dressy or look casual. If you love this combination  as much as I do, try to keep everything sleek and simple, while make accessories shine and glitter; everything depends on your imagination and event. Hope you enjoy!

Retro Vibe

Good morning Everyone and happy Monday! I just wanted to say al quick hello and share a few new pictures. 

For today’s look I choose for a vintage inspired look wearing this gorgeous and uber feminine A-line Expresso dress. I’m a big fan of color blocking, I think it’s a great way to add interest to a simple design. It’s also a fun way to play with color. To finish the look I paired my dress with big black sunglasses, over the knee boots and a fake fur stole.

If you love bright colors, stripes, polka dots and retro silhouettes please take a look at the Laura Biagiotti | Spring Summer 2017 Fashion Show. I just love it! 

What about you guys, what do you think about the retro look? 

P.S.: Happy Valentine’s Day (tomorrow)!

Fringe love

Happy Sunday, Everyone! Hope you are all enjoying the weekend! I just wanted to say hi and share a few new images from my last outfit.

When I saw this shaggy  H&M fringe cardigan on the website, I couldn’t check out quick enough! It looks like a million bucks (but only € 15 on the sales!) and has that oversized fit I love.  I think that wool is the perfect fabric to accomplish that cozy effect I was looking for; even more by adding the fringes to the look.
