today’s look: a softer shade

A tasteful mixture of peach, pistachio and mango, with a little cream, if you will. I can’t get over this look! The cut of the H&M top (Conscious Collection) is simply divine, the Zara heels do deserve endless more rounds before summer’s coming to an end, and don’t even get me started on the lilly-white Hermes Kelly bag, one of the more beautiful vintage pieces in my collection. Pants: H&M Bracelet: Zara

today’s look: dolce in red

Although the weather looks promising for the next few days, the wind is still a bit chilly. The fabric of this blouse is very light and comfortable, perfect for today. The colorful print reminds me of the gorgeous, and famous, Pucci prints. Another example of how to mix prints. Pants: H&M Belt: vintage Loafers: Asos

today’s look: strawberry sweet ‘n sour

(more pictures below) Tweet A bit preppy, this look is not my average look. I do love it though. The (Versace x H&M cruise collection) shoes are just too yummy to pass up and the large scarf adds a little twist. Make sure you check out the detailed picture of the necklace, below. Tell me what you think!

today’s look: perfectly pink

(more pictures below) Tweet I love this Asos dress, the colors, the print, the shape. This dress has seen the inside of my suitcase on more than one occasion, it’s been in Greece, in Spain and will, most probably, go with me to the South of France very soon! The earrings I bought at H&M last week are just the perfect match. The leather neon clutch is H&M as well.

today’s look: blazing sun

(more pictures below) Tweet And, just like that, summer’s here! Nothing shouts ‘sun’ like this dress, I think. Last summer, see pictures here, I totally colorblocked this dress with my favorite vintage Oscar de la Renta jacket, a rainbow necklace and a pair of marine flats. Today, however, I came across this amazing clutch, and, in no time, found the braided bangle and disco ball ring, and an idea was born. I pictured the desert sand dunes, under the blazing sun, so a more subtle color palette came to mind. I tried my (AWESOME!) spiked peep toe heels by Sam Edelman and that was it, no more needed! I hope you love it as much as I do.

today’s look: happy go lucky

(more pictures below) Tweet This amazing bright yellow jacket that I wore in Paris in March, was calling me for another round. In the area where I live, during this time of spring, there are bright yellow fields of rapeseed everywhere. That’s one of the top 3 things why I love to live here so much, it makes me feel like I’m the richest and luckiest girl in the world. This jacket makes me very happy as well. I chose to wear a bright blue top with it, and my silver flats, a light skinny jeans and a lot of arm candy and some colorful necklaces, vintage and from India. The snakeprint clutch gives this look just a little edge, I don’t want this to become too matchy-matchy or even clownesque…

today’s look: it’s my party

(more pictures below) Tweet And I wear what I want to! Today is my 34th birthday so I’m celebrating in all kinds of different ways: cake, presents (I’ll be sharing soon), family, ice cream and… beautiful clothes! This silk vintage dress just took my breath away, the first time I saw it. I must admit, that happens to me a lot when I see something beautiful. #instanthappiness Although I do have quite a few special dresses, this one is not your average party dress. It’s heavy, handmade, colorful, well-tailored, amazing! The weather today doesn’t fully agree with me on this dress, but as I wrote: it’s my party and I’ll wear what I want to. The leather heels are Zara, the clutch is H&M and the necklace is custom made by me. Happy birthday to me! (dress in detail &

Today’s look: color blocking!

Eindelijk ziet deze outfit het daglicht. Deze hangt al sinds het voorjaar te wachten. Als stylist loop ik (meestal) wat voor, de trends van de winter bestuderen we als het nog niet eens hoog zomer is en vice versa. (ik weet het, iemand moet deze zware taak op zich nemen) Deze oranje zijden top draag ik met een helder gele pencil skirt van gewafelde stof. Mijn torenhoge nude pumps, die ik niet vaak draag, komen voor deze outfit graag uit de kast; ik vind ze geweldig! Een rieten clutch in verschillende kleuren en een enorme ring maken deze zomerse outfit af! Echt color blocken gaat trouwens nog een stapje verder, mijn kleine tas met krokoprint zou dan perfect zijn. Today I’m finally wearing this color blocked outfit! It’s been waiting for months. As a stylist I (usually) study winter trends
