how this stylist packs for a 10 day trip to the Cote d’Azur

(more pictures below) It’s crazy and it’s one of my favorite things: packing the stylist’s way. Here’s how it gets done: (not necessarily in this order) First I pick lots of different items from my wardrobe: dresses, jewelry, shoes. Things I absolutely want to take with me. The rack gets more and more crowded and soon it’s cutting time! I have to decide what goes and what not, one of the hardest parts. (I always pack too much) I start putting looks together from all the items I chose, sometimes going back to my closet to add something. I’m deciding, photographing (so I can decide quickly on what to wear in any situation), and wrapping things together so every look will be packed together. (I totally recommend this, it will save you tons of time on your holiday spot) I

today’s look: diamonds in the rough

(more pictures below) Tweet Although I always try to be ‘picture perfect’, I’m no stranger to a healthy dose of self mockery. I’m sharing some of my ‘not-so-pretty’ pictures, for a behind-the-scenes peek. And yes, you may laugh… Unexpected visitors, camera malfunctions, balance issues, gravity, the wind (hair!)… When you photograph a lot, like I do, you tend to get quite a few misfits, or are they diamonds in the rough? I think the unexpected, like in my looks, makes for an interesting scenery. You be the judge…

beautiful birthday presents!

I admit: I totally rock at spoiling myself, but how fun it is to be spoiled! And I was spoiled, last week, turning 34. Just to be clear: I absolutely don’t, for one minute, worry about getting older. First of all, turning 34 (thus being still ‘young’) doesn’t give me the right to worry about that, I think. Secondly, there are thousands of women who didn’t get to see this day, so I’m grateful for every day I get. And will remember this when wrinkles and grey hair will come into my life. So, on to the presents! I was lucky to come up with a (small) list at all. I have everything I want, and if I don’t I pretty much make sure I get it. (Ouch, that sounds horrible!) My husband spoiled me with this fabulous black leather

today’s look: black jack

(more pictures below) Tweet You guys didn’t honestly think I was going to walk around in that dress all day, did you? (On my birthday.) We went to Oldenburg, Germany for a city trip, so I changed into this comfortable-chic outfit. The black leather tote (Zara) is a birthday present from my darling husband. I’m wearing my Proenza Schouler ballerina flats, a black skinny jeans, an H&M lace top (look at the detailed photo’s) and a vintage jacket with brooches. The spiked cuffs are Asos, the bracelet Versace x H&M. I had loads of fun wearing this in Oldenburg and will be blogging about the city soon.

today’s look: faux fur

Tweet I took a little break the past few days, here’s one of my favorite looks for you. I started with the intricate beaded skirt in a rare green-mustard tone, I’ve paired it with a simple black velvet top, a colored vintage bracelet, amazing Asos heels, a faux fur vest and the one and only vintage black Hermes Kelly bag in box calf leather. I’m totally in love with this look, it’s warm, I can move in it and it shows some guts and creativity. Na een pauze van een paar dagen is hier een van mijn favoriete outfits. Ik begon met de prachtige met kraaltjes bezaaide rok in een soort mosterd-groene tint, erbij een eenvoudige fluwelen top, een gekleurde vintage armband, prachtige pumps van Asos, een gilet van nepbont en, niet de minste, mijn vintage Hermes Kelly tas in

today’s look: under the sea

Tweet I’m wearing a gorgeous vintage metallic top which totally fits in the Chanel and McQueen and Elie Saab themes from the SS12 shows from last Tuesday. I don’t want to take it off, it’s colors, the cut, it’s my favorite piece of this moment! I’m wearing it with a black lace skirt by H&M, leather gloves and a gorgeous vintage purse. Ik ben helemaal verliefd op deze vintage metallic top, die trouwens precies past in het thema van de shows van Chanel en McQueen in Parijs afgelopen dinsdag. Ik vrees dat jullie ‘m vaker gaan zien, de kleuren, hoe de top is gesneden, alles eraan maakt dat dit kledingstuk met stip op nr. 1 staat bij mij momenteel. Ik draag er een zwart kanten rokje bij van H&M, leren handschoenen en een prachtig vintage tasje.

today’s look: jungle craze

Tweet I love expressing myself through colors, prints and jewelry. And today I managed to create all that in one look. I’m quite the fan of Dries van Noten’s bold (mixed) prints and this shirt is totally inspired on his work. The snakeprint pants are Zara’s, the leather shoes Mango’s, the clutch is Michael Kors and the jewelry and belt are by H&M. A favorite already, this is very much a transitional look and come autumn, I will be wearing it a lot. Ik hou ervan om me uit te drukken door middel van kleuren, prints en sieraden. Vandaag is dat wonderwel gelukt met deze outfit. De top is geinspireerd op het werk van Dries van Noten, ik ben nogal een fan van zijn pittige (gemixte) prints. De broek met slangenprint is van Zara, de leren schoenen van Mango, de
