Topshop isn’t an easy brand to get a hold of for me. This English brand is one I mostly shop at when I’m in the UK, but there has been a store in Amsterdam for some time now and soon there will be one opening in my soon to be new home town: Rotterdam. So it has become easier to buy from them over the years. They have some cool items that I find last well. It’s a little more expensive than H&M, but with that the quality is also always there. These are some of the favorites that I bought from Topshop over the years.

You know I love a good button down. I own many and in many different shape and sizes. One thing that sets one button down blouse apart from another is its collar shape. And so today, I would like to sing the praises of one particular style of collar: the Peter Pan collar. This is an ode to Peter Pan collars.

Black is not necessarily a color I wear a lot. Even though it is a good basic to have and wear, I like my colorful clothes. I honestly do not understand the whole minimalist black & white wardrobes that I see on so many fashion channels. To me, fashion is about having fun and black is quintessentially my least favorite color to style. I’m a grey girl at heart. But that doesn’t mean I forego wearing black completely. Here’s how I would style a black t-shirt.

What better shoe to wear in the summer time than a pair of sneakers? I am not necessarily a sneaker person, but I love a good sneaker every now and again. My two favorite brands for sneaker shopping are Nike and Converse. I’ve been eyeing up Adidas Superstars, which I like, but their sizing runs weird so I have been able to find anything in my size yet. So for now, these are my current favorite pairs of sneakers.
My favorite color is red and it so happens to be a great color for me to be wearing as well. So you can imagine my joy when I saw that red is one of the IT colors this season. Mixed with a ditsy floral print it is now all over the shops on dresses, skirts and what not. But I figured it would be best to show you some red items from my wardrobe that have none of those frills. I love a good, solid red over a ditsy floral print one every day. These are my selected items.

Mom jeans: you either love them or hate them. I was in the I’m not so sure camp for a while there, but then last year I caved and bought a pair. Yet still, I wasn’t entirely sure how to style them. So to help myself and hopefully you as well, I decided to throw some outfits together for some much needed fashion inspiration.

You know I love a good dress! Over the years there are a few dresses that I’ve bought that not only stood the test of time style wise but also when it comes to how they wear. I never like to spend too much money on clothes as its so fickle what’s hot and what’s not, but even more so: what I’m into. Luckily, these 6 dresses that held their ground and have become firm staples in my wardrobe. And no, none of these are plain in anyway whatsoever. I love a good statement dress.
