My Favorite Fall Skirts – Sale

Hi loves! Lately, I have been really enjoying going out and about. Although I love staying at home every once in a while, I did plan so many stuff in October and November. They are my most busy months of the year. Events, meetups, parties, school again. During fall and winter, I have so much good and new energy. I think that I change every year the most during these months. My creativity level is really high and I try to give that part of me as much attention as I can. Not only in summer you can wear cute skirts, fall is the best season for that! I wear skirts all the time and I thought it was about time to share with you my favorite ones. SHOP FALL SKIRTS

White boots for Fall

Finally, I am back and I couldn’t have been happier! I needed some time off to focus on my studies, I still have a few important exams coming up. But… I can not wait to share you my new items. Fall is so beautiful, the weather in the Netherlands is amazing lately and I am shooting so many different outfits at the moment. This one is in partnership with Lulus. I love to wear white during this season because it is in contrast with all the pretty fall colors. You probably have seen the amazing amount of different white heels and boots this summer. Well, you can still wear them now. I have paired them with white jeans because I liked the clean effect. Image wearing a colorful sweater, what shade would you go for with shoes? Black booties would maybe feel a little bit too dark for a sunny fall day. You have gotten to a point when your upper body screams spring while the rest of you is full of winter colors.  Did you enjoy…

Fall Trend: Colorful Sweaters

He my lovelies, how is it going? I hope you are doing fine! You probably have seen a lot of Fashion Week pictures going around the internet. It is the best time of the year to get inspired for the new season! I love collecting lots of style pictures and I always put them together to great one big inspiration frame to hang above my work desk. This fall season is going to be really colorful. I haven’t seen so many colors on the runway in a long time. Last week I received this striped sweater from Loavies (Striped Sweater). It is perfect to show off the color trend during fall. I combined this outfit with some cool and easy sneakers. (Brand unknown, sorry guys!). This summer-inspired bag completed my summer to fall look. Colorful Trends Inspiration this is an example of where I find my inspiration. Brands are the perfect place to get new style ideas! Personally, I still have to invest some money in new knits for this fall season.  My jeans are Levi’s  , actually, these are my first pare! I…

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…

3 key pieces to wear this Fall season

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? I have to admit that this isn’t my favorite trend to talk about… but we can always give it a try. I selected a few pieces that I would wear underneath a skinny jeans. Combared with a white styles western blouse. Going well Plaid This print is coming back every season. It is timeless to wear and every year I am excited to see how the trend is turning out. This year it is hot to style different colors of plaid pieces together. Like…

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…
