What to wear: versatile summer look

As you probably know, I'm working as an editor at Shopwithyourfriends. We got a new blog item since a few weeks: What to wear. Every day someone else is showing an outfit. I wanted to share my look of Tuesday with you guys.

J Brand Neon Yellow Coated Jeans (SSENSE | $185.00
Barbour Vintage International Jacket (My-Wardrobe | $410.85
Maison Scotch Blue Bird Tank (Shopbop | $27.50
Tavik - Womens Caliente Bikini Top (Mint) (80's Purple | $52.00
Converse ChuckTaylor All Stars Oxford Sneakers (Bloomingdales | $55.00
Ray-Ban Aviator Large Metal 58 mm Sunglasses in Silver Mirror (Singer22 | $155.00)

Sun, beaches and barbecues: that's what my weekend looked like! So you can imagine my outfit this weekend was much more interesting than today's office look. This What to wear is combination of different outfits which I wore last weekend. A look suitable for many activities during a summer day.

This cute top by Maison Scotch I bought months ago but I'm still head over heels about this piece. The only thing is, you have to wear something underneath the tank otherwise a bit much of your body will be shared with the rest of the world. For example a neon colored bra, a bandeau top or just a bikini will do. A bikini top as bra is multifunctional during summer days if you ask me: always ready for a dip in the pool.

White sneakers like these All Stars by Converse are completely on trend these days. Also great for a summer day: cool and very comfortable. For the more windy places or during the evening this jacket is perfect. Great in combination with the sneakers and Ray-Ban Aviator glasses. A very versatile look, what do you think?!

Spontaneous Dinner

Top: H&M
Trousers: Vero Moda
Necklace: Forever21
Shoes & bag: New Look

Last week my boyfriend and I went for a sponteneous dinner. After a hard day of work we went to an Italian place which is close to my house. I haven't been there for years, I just forgot about it, but it's very nice! I'm going to enjoy the sun for a bit. Have a nice weekend!

What to wear: Sunshine!

As you probably know, I'm working as an editor at SWYF. We got a new blog item since a few weeks: What to wear. Every day someone else is showing an outfit. I wanted to share my look of Tuesday with you guys.

Midi Dress with Beading (ASOS | € 81,45) 
Massimo Palomba Ella Narcissus Yellow Tote (ASOS | € 475,13) 
Cheap Monday Hat Lori Black (WELIKEFASHION.COM | € 21,95) 
Friis Company Wedges Caren Black (WELIKEFASHION.COM | € 64,95) 
Pieces Nancie Multi Colour Bead Necklace (ASOS | € 16,29)

Finally summer in Holland! It has been scientifically established sunlight makes people happy, but wow, I am one happy person at days likes these. Most of the day I'm inside my office, but still, it will be hard to break my day. All kinds of inspiring thoughts about summer looks are flying through my head. That's why I made a What to wear about the look I would love to wear today.

Honestly I'm wearing shorts and a pink top, cute, but nothing beats a maxi dress (or midi in this case) at sunny days with temperatures rising above 25 degrees. This midi dress from ASOS is a must-have item to me. Classy but playful with it's colours and pattern. I'm totally into yellow these days, so to adjust to this bright weather a lovely yellow shopper by Massimo Palomba. Accessories are needed for every look (well in my opinion), that's why I choose for a multi coloured necklace by Pieces. Great wedges and a floppy hat, summer I'm ready! (so don't leave us!)

Festival Look

Necklace: H&M
Bracelets: New Look
Top: Lou
Shorts: Vintage
Black Strapless top: Vero Moda

.Photo one. // I curled my hair! What do you think? Normally I'm all about straight hair, but for once I put in some effort to look nice. I got these ridiculous glasses at the festival, but I kinda thought it looked funny (or stupid?) so I wore them for like the whole day. I love to make stupid faces, just to clear this up. 

.Photo two. // One of my two outfits. Two? Yes two. The weather was so strange and I didn't had a special item which I wanted to wear, so I took a few things with me. Most of the time I was wearing this look, a pink sweat with glitter.

.Photo three. // Dancing with my girl Hedwig! And my cute BF in the back.

.Photo four. // BF and me

.Photo five. // One of my favourite friends Yannick (also one of my fav. photographers who helps me with Featherhaze). Sun was going down, we partyed 'till nighttime.

I'm so happy about the weather! Sun, shorts.. I'm planning on having a barbecue with my friends someday this week. But today I have to go to school and to a pressday of New Look, tomorrow I'll be working so I hope I'll have some sunny prime time on Thursday.

Little Preview: Fusion of Dance

Hi guys! I had the greatest day this weekend!
My friends and I went to a big festival in my town: Fusion of Dance. Almost everyone I love was there, so a lot of pictures were made. How cute is this pic with me and Vera? O btw, this shiny glasses are hers. Love them! I thought she bought them at Primark.
I'm still, or maybe again, in a big fat fashion dip, so that's why I haven't been updating my blog. In two weeks I'm going to Antwerp (yessh again!) with my mum, her boyfriend and my sis because my fabulous mother is reaching the age of 50. She's gonna kill me when I say it again: 50! She's almost crying about her age. Well, I think so she still look great. 50 and fabulous!
I will update more pictures about the festival later on.

What to wear: Mother's Day

I work as an fashion editor at SWYF. We got a new blog item since a few weeks: What to wear. Every day someone else is showing an outfit. I wanted to share my look of Monday with you guys.

Vero Moda Katie Cadel Shirt (Nelly | € 24,95) 
Kling Cape Skirt (Nelly | € 49,95
Mango blazer (Wehkamp | € 44,95
Sacha leren enkellaarzen (Wehkamp | € 99,95
Lola Rose Gala Irridescent Shell Ring (My-Wardrobe | € 210,00)  

Mostly this post is about what the writer is wearing today, but because it was a special day last Sunday, mine's about Sunday's look. Mother's Day! I went for a lunch with my family in a casual yet trendy outfit.

The weather was great. Sunny with a little breeze which made my skirt sweep a bit. I have chosen for  calm colors to emphasis on the skirt. To spice up the overall look, I put on a huge cocktail ring and a pair of edgy boots. These boots are a great alternative for the much more expensive Pistol Boots by Acne.

If you don't know what to wear to a festival, make little adjustments to the outfit so this look will not only be suitable for a family lunch. It's a great outfit for a festival if you ask me. Change this jacket by Mango into a leather jacket and you are ready to party!

Friday Datenight

Dress: Primark
Clutch: New Look
Ring: Vintage

Last Friday I went out for dinner with my boyfriend. We went to a Greek restaurant, I had a fabulous meal, unfortunately he didn't really enjoyed it. He's kinda hooked to a special Italian place in our city, so nothing is as good as their food. That's his opinion. I'm always open for new places! 
After dinner we went for a small walk, but it was so cold! We made a few pictures, but I didn't want to take off my jacket. I'll show you my lace dress some other time. 
I wore my hair in a ponytail for once, what do you think?

New in: Purple bag

Yes again, a new bag. It's not totally my style, especially the purple color, but hey, you have to try sometime new every once in a while right? I had a giftcard of a store in my town called Lou, but I couldn't find anything for over six months. But now I saw this cute bag!
How would you combine this item to make it a bit more edgy

I also bought my first, well not first, flats! It's not really my thing, but these are really cool. I will make some piccs with these cute shoes later this week.

Today's look on SWYF: A Rainy Day In Spring

Since some time I work as fashion editor at SWYF. We got a new item on our blog since last week: What to wear. Every day someone else is showing an outfit. I wanted to share my look of Wednesday with you guys. 
Ann Harvey Green Vintage Floral Waterfall Jacket (Debenhams | £90.00
MOTO Highwaisted 70's Hotpants (Topshop | £28.00
ASH studded biker boot (Farfetch | £279.00
Fiona Paxton Frida multi-chain necklace (The Outnet | £115.00
Ava WIDE BRIM TRILBY HAT (Reiss | £55.00)
Good morning! Another rainy day here in Holland. I'm craving for summer: bare legs, open shoes and bright colors. But for now we have to deal with tights and warm jackets. The temperature is rising so I tried to combine an outfit for today's weather forecast. Perfect for a rainy day in spring if you ask me!

My favorite item all times is this cute highwaisted shorts by Topshop. Easy to combine, trendy but nonchalant. I would say most of my outfits are. I love the floral print trend, for example this jacket. I don't want to be too girly so I combined my outfit with some edgy biker boots by ASH bought at Farfetch and a statement necklace. To finish the look a hat would fit perfectly, especially to keep you dry in this kind of weather.

Shopwithyourfriends is a fashion company, so luckily I can wear almost every outfit to work. I guess this look won't be proper at a regular office, but it's perfect for weekends: a night on the town or just a fun day of shopping.

Minty Mood

Pictures: Weheartit.com & Pinterest

I'm constantly searching for some fashion inspiration, because I'm in a Big Fat Fashion Dip. Honestly, not only a fashion dip. Things just don't go as the way they used to go, you know. Appointments are cancelled last minute, the weather is still sucky and I don't have inspiration for anything: my thesis nor my fashion
Yesterday I had a few appointments for my thesis in Amsterdam, but my teachers were sick so I stayed home. The coming days I'm busy with work, I hope that will give me some new energy and inspiration.

I tried to get my mood up by looking at some pretty fashion piccs. I noticed I saw many minty colors and they appeal to me. When my mood and money is back, it's time for shopping search for some cute minty items!

New in: Neon bag

What do you think about yellow? I have completely revised my opinion about this color. First I hated it, but suddenly (guess I'm sensitive for trends) I'm crazy about it. I bought this cute clutch two weeks ago at New Look. Still looking for a nice combintion, because most of my outfits are a bit too loud for this bag. 

I have to catch up on my thesis, after all these days of partying and focussing on other things. 
Have a nice day!

Day of the Queen

Top: River Island
Blazer, Sunnies & Necklace: H&M
Shorts: Vintage
Ring: Primark
Shoes: Vans 

Hi guys! Yes we had one sunny day! This was during the Dutch holiday Queensday. I had a great day. First I went to the park with my friends. Afterwards we went to a small dance festival in my town. 
In total I went partying for three days, so my resistance is a bit low. I've got sore eyes and I'm tired, but tomorrow there's another big festival in my city so I have to be healthy and energetic. 

What do you think about this blouse? It's my sister's. Currently I'm going through a bit of a fashion depression. My wardrobe sucks, so does my bank account. My boyfriend and I are planning for a vacation to Greece, so we have to save some money. 

Enjoy your weekend and sorry for my lack in blogging!
