How to Style: Midi Skirt

Normally I almost never post a blog post on Sunday’s, but I just could not wait to share this look with you! Last week has been very hectic and exciting for me and I am slowly starting to get used to travel to Amsterdam every day. My internship is really fun and I can not wait to learn more. I am so happy I am out of the books for a while, I was so done studying. I am glad I can do something different now. Also, working during the week means that you are 100% free during the weekend! So, I spend all my free time at writing, reading and I love to visit my family. Things aren’t going so well lately (with my family), so it is important for me to stay in close contact with my loved ones. Maybe sometimes I wish some situations where different, but you can not change them. I try to be as positive as possible but there are times when I can not keep up. I do not…

The Animal Print Trend This trend is coming back every year and this year designers went all the way! You can see so many different kinds of animal patterns in stores. I have to say: I needed some time to actually like it. As soon as I bought my leopard printed top from Only I was in love. So I am definitely going to invest more in these kinds of pieces! Rock the Western Style From California to here, the western boots patterns and styles arrived and found themselves away into fashion week. What was I missing?

Cult Gaia and Versace | Zakynthos

I can not believe how fast the time goes every time I travel abroad. My and my boyfriend had a relaxing week in Zakynthos, a Greece island. It was my 5th time visiting a Greece island. It is clear that I can not have enough. Greece definitely stole my heart. The small streets, the sweet people, the food, the sea, ones you have been there you know what I am talking about. Zakynthos is the greenest island I have visited so far, it contains so much nature. We drove around for hours on our quad to explore the caves, beaches, and little villages. As soon as we booked I decided to check out google to find the best places around our apartment to shoot my outfits. When I saw these sunbeds, I had to make this matching picture. This beach was in Agios Sostis, a small village right next to the beach. Our apartment was 5 minutes away, it was the perfect spot! I normally never buy anything on the beach but this day there was…

Do’s and Don’ts as a Blogger

After blogging frequently for one year now, I discovered some things that work and things who do not. As every beginner, I made some mistakes, which brought me in positions when I did not know what to do. Luckily everything always works out in the end! And with the help of the internet, you will come a long way. I thought it would be interesting to share my Do’s and Don’ts as it comes to blogging, to help you out. DO’S: Post Frequently and Consistently This is one of the most important things to do as a blogger. In this way, you will keep readers engaged and they will return back for more.

Choose a day or more per week on which you will publish a blog post. For example, I always post one on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 08:00. Reach out to…

Shopping: Zakynthos Wardrobe

For my trip to Zakynthos next week, I did some last minute shopping. I can not wait to visit this beautiful island, I heard so many good words about it! Of course I had to visit Shopbop , to order from my favorite brands. When I pack, I always like to match and mix different items with each other. When I ordered this skirt from the brand Lost + Wander, I decided to match it with these See by Chloé Sarenza Slides and a simple white top. We booked our holiday a few weeks ago and I already searched on google maps for the best photo spots. I found out that our apartment is blue and the pool chairs are also blue with a striped pattern. So I decided to buy a blue/white bikini to make the matching picture. I am planning so much for our holiday, but I now it will be worth it. For accessories: I love all the bags from Cult Gaia, especially the wooden ones. They make every outfit so summery ! I am planning on…
