HOLIDAY // Lago Di Garda

Hi guys! I know it has been a while! Last week I didn't have any time to blog. I worked a few days and Thursday I went for a shopping trip to Rotterdam. I bought the most amazing items, if I have some time left, I'll show these tomorrow.
I got ill on Friday, so I didn't feel like blogging (I planned on blogging on Friday so..). I had to recover the whole weekend and besides it was so hot! Not really the kinda weather to sit inside. 

Yesterday it was my boyfriend's birthday! I gave him the best birthday present: two concert tickets to see the band The Black Keys! And I took him out to dinner. I took my camera with me, but it was like a 100 degrees, I felt to hot to shot some pictures. 

But the main topic of this post, my HOLIDAY! Yes again on holiday? Yes again bitches. But this time not with my beloved boyfriend, but with my three best friends! We are going camping (well Glamping, because we have a bungalow tent) at the Lago Di Garda, Italy! I've been there many times when I was a kid, or even a teenager. I'm so excited to go back! This picture is made by my dad at the Lago Di Garda a few years back. Still in love with the picture. Anyway I'm leaving on Wednesday, but still gotta pack everything. Will be back in more than a week. LATER!

WHAT TO WEAR // Barbecue in style

As you probably know, I'm working as an editor at SWYF. We got a special blogitem called 'What to wear'Every day someone else is showing an outfit. I wanted to share my look of today with you guys. 

SHORTS High Waisted Denim Shorts in Deep Green (ASOS | € 34,56
TOP Maison Scotch Top boxy fit (Men_at_Work | € 21,59
BANDANA POLO RALPH LAUREN Bandana scarf (Denim Plus | € 45,00
BOOTS leren biker enkellaarsjes (Mango | € 69,95
SUNGLASSES touch - aviator (Mango | € 19,95)

What a lovely weather we had this weekend! It was perfect for a barbecue. So I went crazy I hosted not one, but two barbecues. Yes, very enthusiastic. Eating outside, sitting on the grass and zipping wine out of plastic cups gives me this hippie feeling, which is main inspiration of this look. This week's What to wear: barbecue in style (because everything we do, we do in style).

This summer I've seen many bandanas. I never thought I could pull it off, but in fact I think everyone can pull of a bandana. You don't have to worry about your hair, just put a bandana around your head and it really looks like you did effort. To give the outfit a bit more edge, I put on a black high waisted shorts and biker boots. It's still a summer's look, that's why I chose this colorful top of Maison Scotch. Tuck the top a bit in your shorts for a more sixties/rock look. You're ready to grill in style!

OUTFIT // More Than Flowers

Top: Maison Scotch
Shorts: Vintage
Belt: Zara
Shoes: Nelly

Weekend yeeha! Today I went to my dad's house to work on my thesis (when I'm at home, I spontaneously start cleaning or doing groceries when I have to work on my thesis). Since he got a house with a garden he's all about flowers and stuff, so I decided to 'promote' his floral project with my colorful outfit. 
I bought this top at Maison Scotch, at first I had some mixed feelings about the top. But I'm loving it more and more every day. And I love the bandana (I found it somewhere at my mom's house). When I'm not feeling like doing my hair, I put my hair into a ponytail and just wrap around this bandana. But I've to meet my friends in one hour for a barbecue at the park and I'm still at my dad's so gotta go! Enjoy your Saturday night. Party!

WHAT TO WEAR // Summer evening dinner

As you probably know, I'm working as an editor at SWYF. We got a special blogitem called 'What to wear'Every day someone else is showing an outfit. I wanted to share my look of Monday with you guys. 

TOP MAISON SCOTCH Skinny shoulder strap tank (Denim Plus | € 35,95) 
PANTS Just Female Pants View (WELIKEFASHION.COM | € 44,98) 
JACKET Red Valentino Blue Metallic Tweed Jacket (My-Wardrobe | € 478,80)

WATCH Nixon Gold Finish Square Face Bracelet Watch (ASOS | € 210,14) 
BAG Fab. Clutch Ita Safari (WELIKEFASHION.COM | € 189,95)  

Monday again, I like weekends better. But today it's my mother-in-law's birthday, so it ain’t a regular Monday for me. Tonight the whole family is coming over for dinner, so it's time to dress-up! What to wear at a summer evening dinner?

This look started with the shoes. Normally the shoes are things which I decide about at the end, but these yellow ones of Nelly are so cute.. They have to have a leading role in the outfit. Black pants are perfect to combine with strappy sandals. I didn't want to go to chic, so I decided to wear a more edgy tee from Maison Scotch. Even though it's summer, during the evening a jacket is necessary. To make the look more trendy I added a animal printed clutch to the look. I'm done! Is dinner already served?

SOLAR LOVE // A festival with friends, music and drinks

Hello my darlings! How happy are these pictures?! Well, I had the best time last weekend. I went to a three-day festival with some friends called "Solar Weekend". Djs, cocktails and camping. It was GREAT. The weather was great (I'm tan as fuck) and everything went fabulous. I would really like to tell you more, but I've got to work now!

WHAT TO WEAR // A colorful day

As you probably know, I'm working as an editor at SWYF. We got a special blogitem called 'What to wear'Every day someone else is showing an outfit. I wanted to share my look of Monday with you guys. 

TANK Influence Black Studded Cross Tank Top (New Look | £14.99)

JEANS J Brand MID RISE SKINNY JEANS (MyTheresa | £108.00)
SHOES Jil Sander LEATHER PUMPS (MyTheresa | £202.00)

BAG Leather Satchel (Topshop | £55.00)
EARRINGS Cut out cross earrings (Dorothy Perkins | £4.00)

Monday is never my favorite day of the week, but today I woke up and the sun was shining in my room. I felt so cheerful I decided to go for a colorful outfit.

I love the pink jeans. On one hand it's very girly, but because it's so neon is also a bit rebel. To emphasize the rebelliousness I decided to combine this jeans with crosses. Crosses are hot and totally my thing. New Look has many crossed items this season, like this tank top. If you want affordable pieces with crosses, New Look is the place to be!

Normally I don't wear heels that much, I own lots of pairs, but I prefer flat shoes. But this minty ones, oh my! They are so cute. And I love the pink-mint combination. Too many colors can make your outfit look like a clown, so stick with a few like I did. A big leather bag of Topshop and I'm good to go this Monday!

WHAT TO WEAR // Wear the summer!

As you probably know, I'm working as an editor at SWYF. We got a special blogitem called 'What to wear'Every day someone else is showing an outfit. I wanted to share my look of last week with you guys.

Oh my! Finally summer! Last week it was time for bare legs and strappy sandals. I've already worked most of these sunny days so last Thursday I enjoyed the sun in my garden and during the evening it was time for a barbecue with my friends. Some summer inspiration with my what to wear: wear the summer.

With temperatures likes these I rather wear flat sandals than high heels. The weather is so comfortable and so will my outfit be. A yellow shorts of Ichi, which I adore. And of course a lace top (have you noticed I always put lace items in my looks?). Don't forget to bring your sunscreen and a bottle of water wherever you go, so this big bag of Mango is perfect for all your stuff. Enjoy your day, wear the summer!
