How I wear polka dots

If you have had a look at any spring collection out there, then you will have noticed one thing: polka dots are back. Together with stripes, polka dots are a print that never go out of style and are simply timeless. This means I already own a few polka dot items that I thought would…

Why I love Topshop jeans

If you have seen any of my fashion blog posts or videos, then you know I swear by Topshop jeans. I have and have tried a range of different styles and colors and have loved every single one. From Binx to Joni, from Jamie to Leigh: each one of my Topshop jeans serves a certain…

How I wear leopard print

Recently I have been loving injecting a bit of leopard print in my wardrobe. I used to think that leopard print looked tacky, but if done right, it is one of the easiest to wear prints. It is versatile, easy to combine and a great neutral that pairs great with many colors.  How I wear…

Random outfits #8

Time to show some outfits I’ve been wearing again. Some of these I wore a few months ago because the pictures were taken in the old place, but these are all fairly cold weather appropriate so I figured I could still use them in a blog post. So these are 6 random outfits that I…

Styling a-line skirts

I love wearing dresses and skirts from time to time. While my style is quite casual, I like inserting a dose of feminine style to my outfits as well. The best way to blend casual and girly is by adding a skirt and my preferred style of skirt has shifted over time. Where I used…

How I wear jewel tones

For fall and winter, I like to swap brighter and lighter colors for deeper jewel tones. Navy, forest green, burgundy: those are the colors I go for when I get dressed in the morning. They are colors that suit me well and I love how they can be dressed up or dressed down. Depending on…

2017 Fashion favorites

Apart from makeup bits, I have also loving fashion quite a bit. That is why I’ve selected 10 clothing items that were my favorites last year, or that represent a trend that I loved. Some of these items you will have seen in lookbooks, others in hauls, but these were some of the fashion pieces…

How I wear velvet

Velvet is everywhere and it has been for a while. From skirts, shirts, dresses and shoes: if you can paste a piece of velvet touch fabric onto it, or use it to make it, it seems someone is doing it. And it’s not just black velvet either. Oh no, it has started to come out…

Favorite ZARA pieces

Shopping at ZARA is something I like doing, but it is not my go to. Where I am constantly stalking H&M for basics and Asos for shoes, ZARA is the place where I find those one off pieces that give some extra spice to my wardrobe. These are some of my best finds from ZARA….

10 reasons to love a good pair of jeans

Who doesn’t love jeans? But finding the right one can be difficult and thus there is something about a good pair of jeans that gives them a bit of extra lovin’. To me, a good pair of jeans is highwaisted, stretchy enough to be comfy and either skinny or straight legged. Hence my love for…

How I wear pleated skirts

I love a good pleated midi skirt. I don’t own that many, but I do have a few that I thought I would style up for you. Since these skirts can have a quite retro feel to them, it is a challenge to style them up in a way that brings them into the 2010s…

Favorite sweaters & how I style them

It’s sweater weather and while I showed you a very sweater heavy haul last Sunday, I have a few favorites that I wear continuously. Of course these are all a little bit older, but I have worn these so much since getting them and that’s why they had to get their own, dedicated blog post….

How I wear flannel shirts

I love wearing a good flannel shirt in the fall time. So I own several ones and today it is time that I style them up for you. Because while these casual shirts are a great throw on piece, they can easily be combined to look a little bit more stylish. So here’s how you…

Dress styles everyone should own

First up, apologies for the lack of a post this morning, but I had some major computer issues last night, so I couldn’t write a blog post. Still, I didn’t want to break up the schedule, so here we are with today’s blog post. I thought it’d be fun to talk to you about 5…

Styling raw hem denim

Raw hem denim had piqued my interest for  some time, but I hadn’t yet found a pair that I loved until I spotted this black pair in the Topshop summer sale. I knew it wasn’t a very summery item, but I knew it would be perfect for fall. And I thought it would be cool…

Why I swear by Victoria’s Secret bras

We don’t talk enough about bras. Odd, because it’s an important garment to wear and to make sure you wear the right fit and size. To me bras shouldn’t just be pretty, but they should do what they’re supposed to: give support and hold it all together. I have a larger bust so wearing a…

Jackets & blazer collection

After showing you my coat collection last year, I’d been meaning to show you my jackets and blazers as well. I may be more of a cardigan girl, but I love a good jacket as well as a statement piece in my outfit. I last showed you my blazers in 2012 (!!) and needless to…

Styling over the knee boots

Over the knee boots are not a fashion item I had tried before. I bought my first pair last winter and in the summer sales I found another pair. I just haven’t been brave enough to wear them. And as with many fashion items that give me the heebie-jeebies, I like to then raid my…

Most worn cardigans

My favorite fashion item for the fall time? A cardigan. Preferably a long one and it’s even better if I find it at Urban Outfitters. Why? Because of the 5 cardigans that I’m about to show you in today’s blog post, 4 are from Urban Outfitters. They are my favorite store for a big, oversized…

How I wear houndstooth

Houndtooth or pied-de-poule is one of my favorite fall time prints. Not sure why, but I veer towards dogtooth when the leaves start to fall. Perhaps it’s because I love pairing it with jewel tones and rich fabrics such as wool and velvet that I bring it out a lot during the fall. In any…

Styling loafers

If there is one it shoe of the moment it’s a loafer. I remember when I wore a pair years ago in one of my very first outfit photos on this blog and everyone had a bit of a marmite reaction to them. Some people loved them, others hated them. I have always been on…

10 reasons to love a good dress

Dresses: what is not to love? In my case, dresses are one of my favorite clothing items. Not only to shop for, but also to wear. I love a good dress and I have my reasons why. In today’s post, I would like to talk you through why dresses need a little bit more love….

Styling pencil skirts

I love a good skirt and pencil skirts especially as they are so easily worn in a more casual or a more dressed up way. They are versatile and while a plain black pencil skirt will easily take you from the office to drink to a night of partying, you don’t have to keep it…

Printed dresses & how I wear them

When I found a youtube video titled: why you should avoid prints & patterns, I was quite shocked. Because I love a good print! And if that print is part of a great dress, then I like it even more. My wardrobe is not quite plain to begin with, but when it comes to dresses,…

Favorite Topshop pieces

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…

Ode to Peter Pan collars

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…

Styling a black tee

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…

Sneaker favorites

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…

Red items in my wardrobe

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,…

How I wear mom jeans

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…

Dresses worth every penny

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…

My love for shoes

I <3 shoes! When it comes to fashion, shoes are my main weakness. Some women love bags, others love jewelry, but I’m a shoe fiend. And have been for years. I think it was my first fad when it came to fashion. The shoes I bought when I was a student weren’t the best quality…

How to add a pop of color

If wearing monochromatic black & white outfits is your jam than this post is not for you. Personally I love to brighten up a look and always add a pop of color to my outfit. There are different ways in which I do this: from more subtle to more statement. In the picture below you…

Week in outfits #6

I’ve been really into my fashion lately, more so than beauty. It’s probably because it’s summer and the weather has been much nicer. It always makes me want to bust out more colors, dresses and funky shoes. That is why I decided to take a picture every day of the week 2 weeks ago to…

Ode to highwaisted jeans

Jeans are one of those clothing items that you love to hate. I don’t know about you, but finding the right jean has always been a hassle. That is, until I bought my first pair of highwaisted jeans. I swear by a good pair of stretchy or not so stretchy highwaisted jeans, preferably from Topshop….

Random Outfits #7

Thankfully our late spring has seen a nice bit of sunshine. Meaning that some of the outfits I’m showing you today may look a little summery or perhaps quite the opposite. As you can see I wore a bit of everything again. These are a few random outfits I wore in the past three months….

Styling a printed dress

Printed dresses are a must have in my wardrobe. They can be difficult to style up. Especially if you are used to a more monochrome color palette, printed and colorful items may make you feel uncomfortable. But not me! I love me a good print and so I came up with 5 different printed dresses…

Most worn sunglasses

It’s summer! Well these past few days it certainly looked like it. And whenever the sun comes out, I like to slam some sunnies on my face. I have quite a few pairs, but there are always some that you wear more than others. These are the sunglasses I wear the most. Most worn sunglasses

How I wear midi skirts

When you are short like I am, then midi skirts may not seem an obvious choice of dress. So you can understand my skepticism when these first became massively popular. However, I decided to give it a whirl and lo and behold: the midi skirt worked! Over the course of time, I bought several midi…

My most comfortable shoes

Today’s fashion post isn’t perhaps the most stylish one, but it is definitely practical. I love shoes, but when it comes to the pairs I wear the most, they are the ones that I find the most comfortable. You know the ones: once you’ve worn them in, you just can’t take them off because they…

5 favorite skirts

Skirts are a good basic to own and I have many lengths and styles to vary up my look. But lately I’ve been noticing that I reach for a few skirts that I love to wear the most. These 5 favorite skirts all have a few things in common: they all have a knee to…

The printed top haul

Me one sunny Easter weekend: let’s see if I can find a great white tee as I decluttered mine. And then this happened. Whoopsie! But there are so many great t-shirts and tops out there right now! I also decluttered lots of my tops and t-shirts as I find they typically last 1 or 2…

5 Clothing items everyone should own

I’m not one to stick to fashion rules. Most of the standard fashion do’s and dont’s just aren’t for me, but I do think that there are a few items in my wardrobe that I feel round it out and form the core basis of my daily outfit picks. So I wondered: if I could…

Fashion wishlist

There are so many cool pieces floating around now, but I’m trying to be a good girl and not spend all my money as I’m trying to save up for a house this year. That’s why I am currently on a pretty much all out fashion no buy, which is why I can only lust…

Styling a denim jacket

If there is one spring/ summer wardrobe staple that I cannot live without it’s a good denim jacket. I love wearing it so much that I also got myself a darker version so I can change them up. But for now I’m sticking to my OG denim jacket and showing you how I like to…

Spring trends in my wardrobe

Spring is here! And that mean that fashion trends are changing. I decided to dig through some fashion websites to see what trends are in style for 2017 and then I dug through my wardrobe to see what I could come up with. Out of the 19 items I’m about to show you, only 6…

Random outfits #6

Winter is nearing the end of its reign and spring is almost officially here. That means it’s time for a last round of winter time outfits. For these last weeks of winter I’ve really been feeling a more monochromatic look with the occasional pop of color or print. I’m not sure why, but this is…

Most worn bags

I used to be really into bags, but in the past few years they just haven’t really sparked my interest. The bags you see here are pretty much the only ones I own as well. There are a few bags I own for occasional where, such as a clutch and a very small bag. I…

Styling chunky knit sweaters

I absolutely adore chunky knit sweaters. And even though I’m praying so hard for spring to arrive (I’m so done with grey days, snow, sleet, ice, rain and wind), it may be a few weeks before temperatures start to rise. In fact, it can remain quite cold here until well into May (let’s just hope…

Ode to… flannel shirts

I love me a good flannel shirt! I listed it as one of my wardrobe staples last week and today’s blog post is solely dedicated to my love for all things flannel shirts. Not only are they versatile and easy to wear but they are also timeless and work for both men and women. Here’s…
