BLUE BLACK

This season being comfortable and stylish can be so easy. I just love al the sportswear inspired clothing that is in stores now. Off course it’s all about how you wear it, dressed up or dressed down. I’m wearing my trackpants with heels and a pinstripe coat when I want to be dressed up. When I want to be more dressed down I combine them with my new Kenzo sneakers and a simple sweater. Both perfect options for the upcoming winter season. . | Coat MANGO | Top H&M | Pants ZARA | Heels ALEXANDER WANG | Bag and Sunnies CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR | .

FLOURISHING

With 36 weeks and counting I can now definitely say that maternity wear is not my cup of tea. I have tried and tested a couple of maternity jeans, t-shirts and tops and non of them are to my liking. I try to avoid them as much as I can, guess it’s just not for me. The only items that I have not regret buying are all dresses. Now they are comfortable without any concessions. Like this folk floral printed one from Asos Maternity. It’s my current favorite dress to wear, mainly because it’s just a “normal” dress with some extra space at the waistline, and sometimes that’s just all it takes. By the way, this dress is also available in a “normal” size  for all you non pregnant. Now that’s why I love Asos! . | Dress ASOS | Fake Fur stola H&M | Heels ZARA | Bag CHANEL | Sunnies PRADA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

SNAPSHOT

Just last week I was looking for a pair of shoes to go with my outfit when I noticed something. I noticed that flat shoes were almost filling up half of my shoe closet. Something I could have not imagined a year or so ago. But he, when you have to make changes, you better do it right. A whole new world opened up to me, the world of sneakers and other comfortable shoes. While in Paris I scored my favorite pair so far, the Kenzo eye sneakers. So easy to combine with everything from jeans to a black dress and so comfortable to wear. They are the proof that some changes are for the better, only now I have to make sure flats don’t take over the rest of my closet haha. . | Cardigan COS | T-shirt VOGUE PARIS VFNO | Jeans ZARA | Sneakers KENZO | Accessories CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

LE PARISIEN

So last week I was back in my much beloved city; Paris. The kick start of a short holiday before our baby girl arrives, these days also know as a babymoon haha (love that term) . Off course I had planned a short shopping spree but due to our late arrival (traffic jams) and an early meeting with friends I was forced to keep it even shorter. In preparation of my new life I was looking for a new pair of sneakers, I had my eye on 2 pairs after our last visit to Paris back in June, a pair form the Nike Style Lab and a pair I saw at Kenzo. Well, you can guess which pair I got now. For the occasion I was wearing on of my favorite dresses of late, another striped number that I also found at Zara. Although again it’s not officially maternity wear it still fits me perfectly. Combined with a pair of flats and my favorite accessories it still makes me feel ladylike in a time when comfort is key. . | Dress ZARA | Flats BODEN | Bag CHANEL | Sunnies PRADA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

WHEN IN PARIS

When I’m in Paris I always feel like dressing up, maybe because dressing up here doesn’t feel so dressed up as it does back home. It feels natural because almost all of the men and women here look good.  Even now, 25 weeks into my pregnancy I still feel like dressing up every once in a while. And why shouldn’t I, I’m still the same woman I always was. I was never the one to show a lot of skin, but a  little black dress combined with heels was, and will always be, one of my favorite combinations to wear when I go out. Even a backless dress is still an option if you ask me. After all, get dressed is still all about feeling good in your own skin and showing off the best of you . Gladly some things don’t change, same woman new curves is my motto these days. .  | Dress ZARA | Heels MIU MIU | Bracelet CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

RUE DE CAMPAGNE

Last week is was time again for a little getaway to give my body and mind some well deserved rest. So all packed we left home for a few days on the countryside of France, followed by a few days in Paris. This year the weather was very cooperative so I packed a couple of very easy to wear dresses. And what better to pack than lots of stripes. I love stripes so much that I could literaly live in them every day, and in this cute village as well. In the morning we went out for fresh croissants and a baguette, very French off course. I decided to wear all of my favorite French stuff together, so it was stripes, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and strappy sandals in the mix. I felt like a fish in the sea. | Dress TOPSHOP | Heels ZARA | Bag LOUIS VUITTON | Sunnies PRADA | Scarf Vintage CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

MOMFRIEND

About a year ago I bought this pair of boyfriend jeans. In just a matter of time they became my favorite pair, wearing at least twice every week. I really loved  them because of the baggy fit, the perfect wash and the distressed parts that give a nice edge to all of my outfits. And now I’m still wearing them on a regular base, not only are they about the only pair that still fits me, they are still major comfortable. Ok, the are not so baggy any more, in fact, more of a tight fit now but they fit my body perfectly. These days I like to call them my momfriend instead of boyfriend. Hopefully one day they will transform back again. . | Blouse ZARA Men | Jeans ZARA | Heels DOLCE&GABBANA | Scarf CHANEL | Clutch HEMA | Sunnies PRADA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

URBAN CAMOUFLAGE

Black is like urban camouflage for me, I can wear it any time any where. Exactly why  this pair of jeans is my current favorite. Only one minor detail, I’m afraid me and this jeans won’t make it till the end of the month. My belly is really getting in the way of this love affair, all the more reasons to wear it as much as possible these days. This time combined with a boy fit t-shirt that will stay with me till the end and some of my favorite black accessories. . | T-shirt ASOS | Jeans TOPSHOP | Heels &OTHERSTORIES | Bag & Sunnies CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

SHORT STORY

From the moment I knew I was pregnant, and ok to be totally honest, from the moment I knew I wanted children I worried about how to dress while being the one  with a bump. Looking at traditional maternity wear and all magazines, shops and equally themed what-so-ever made me sad, really sad. Luckily the last couple of years this image has changed drastically and I’m determined to keep this trend going. Up until now, I’m almost half way, I still fit all of my own clothes so maintaining my own style is no problem so far. But I promised myself to stay as true to my own style as I possibly can, maybe I will not wear heels all day long anymore, I will keep wearing them when I can. And the same goes for short skirts,  fitted dresses and skinny jeans. I’m ready for the challenge. . | Shirt ZARA Men | Skirt ZARA | Bag CHANEL | Sunnies PRADA | Heels ZARA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

DAY AND NIGHT

When I’m packing my suitcase for a sunny destination I always make sure I pack outfits that work both day and night. I rather pack lots of accessories and shoes than a lot of clothes. It makes choosing what to wear so much easier and I don’t have to drag arround a lot of stuff that I don’t get to wear after all. Short and blouses, the perfect base, are suitable for any occasion. Again I just  switch shoes and accessories and I’m ready to go.   | Blouse ZARA | Shorts ZARA | Bag and sunnies CHANEL | Heels ZARA | Jewelry KENNETH JAY LANE | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

ISLAND COLORS

For years now a LWD is always coming with me on my summer holidays. It’s the perfect blanc canvas that works with all of the accessories and shoes that I bring with me. I wear it dressed down during the day (like here in Rome) and dressed up during the evening but there is no big difference. I love to combine it with colorful accessories and shoes, tanned skin and holiday glow will do the rest.   | Dress MANGO | Heels ZARA | Clutch H&M | Sunnies + Bracelet  CHANEL | Earrings KENNET JAY LANE | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

GEOMETRIC

    This geometric dress is comming with me on holiday for more then 5 years now I believe. I can’t rember when I bought it exactly but I sure love to wear it. It’s the ultimate vacation dress. It’s comfortable to wear, it doesn’t wrinkle in my suitcase and it doesn’t need much to wow. And then, did you spotted the little bump I’m carrying lately? Well yep, I’m 4 months pregnant by now and it feels so good not to hide it anymore. So funny to see how some outfits can hide my little bump and some (like this dress) make it seem bigger. Anyway, I’m super happy about it and can’t wait to show you more!   | Dress MANGO | Heels ZARA | Bag and sunnies CHANEL | Jewelry KENNETH JAY LANE, YSL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

FLOWER POWER

Palazzo pants are always a favorite of mine in summer. Especially the printed version like his one, I love that it has the feel and look of a maxi skirt but with the comfort of a trouser. I wear mine in many different ways, for work I love to wear them more dressed up with a crispy white shirt and heels, on holiday’s I combine them with t-bar slippers and a cropped top. Even a plain t-shirt will do the trick. A very versitile summer garment that I don’t wanna miss. | Blouse COS | Pants ZARA | Heels DOLCE&GABBANA | Clutch H&M | Sunnies CHANEL | Watch MARC MARC JACOBS | . . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

BLACK WIDOW

More and more black is slipping into my summer wardrobe. Were it used to be a no go for me, because it alsways made me feel like a black widow wearing as much black as I do, I now feel totally different. More like dolce vita, like just walking out of an Dolce & Gabbana add. And that’s a feeling I do like so I just led that feeling be the lead.

THE SUMMER OF FLATS

One thing I am very sure about now is that this is the summer of flats. I have been buying more flats than heels lately and that says a lot about a avid heels wearer like myself. I, the one who sees flats as a necessity on days that I have to walk a lot or stand most of time (and sometimes I do wear heels on one of those accasions only to be very sorry later on, I guess you also know the feeling) is now wearing them with joy and really loving it. Off course it’s also great for a shoe lover like myself to have broaden my horizon, a lot more shoes that match my requirements now.

STUDIO LINE

Since a season or 2 Zara is selling a collection called Studio. And since last year it has it’s own category on the webshop which is now the first category I check out after New In. I think everyone of you knows my preference for Zara and this Studio line only made it worse haha. My latest score is this perfect LBD, ideal of both summer and winter and perfect for the in-between weather like this early spring. I’m always a big fan of 3/4 sleeves, a little split never hurts and somehow I prefer a round neckline. And yep, this dress has all of that, the touch of blue compliment it all off. So when it comes to Zara from now, remember to check out their Studio line. . | Jacket ZARA | Dress ZARA STUDIO | Heels ZARA | Bag &OTHERSTORIES | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

BLUE SKIES

All good things come to end and so did my week off in the snow. On the last day there was nothing but blue skies and sunshine, such an gorgeous contrast with the white landscape. Just like this jacket is. This baby blue number is the perfect transseasonal piece. Warm enough for the cold mornings we are still have but in a shade that’s already a link to summer. Worn with thights and my furry Fendi heels all winter appropriate but also ready for jeans and sandals. I’m ready to be home again. | Jacket ZARA | Dress ASOS | Thights WOLFORD | Heels FENDI | Sunnies CHANEL | . . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

POINT OF VIEW

Is it weird to wear open toe or sandals in February? From my point of view not but some consider it not done. Aren’t you cold or don’t you have cold feet is a question a get a lot. Usually I’m not and when I am I do wear boots or socks. Even tough I think there’s still a huge difference between wearing sandals or pumps. Whenever shoes are closed I have less problem wearing them in February then a open toe or sandals. This year is different though, these days temperatures are rising till 15 degrees, pretty comfortable if you ask me. Although I usually draw the line at 20 degrees this year I could wait any longer. I just love to wear sandals, not for comfort but just because I love the look. The things we do for fashion, right.   | Jacket H&M | Baggy leather pants ZARA | heels ZARA | Scarf Vintage CHANEL | Clutch H&M | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

TOP WHITE

Black and white always work, no question about that, but from a distance  it can get a bit boring sometimes. To keep an black and white look interesting I always love to play with structure and materials. I love how the softness of this sweatshirt contrast with the rigid part of the embroidery. The sweater in whole is also a contrast to the coolness of the leather pants, in turn the leather pants give a good contrast to the cuddly ponyhair booties. Simple yet interesting when looking closer. Nothing boring about that right.

THE ANCHOR

Let’s say that I have a “thing” for elbow patches. I also have a “thing” for stripes, and many more now that we’ve come to mind, but lets start with the patches. I love simple sweaters, they match with anything so anytime I see one that’s matches my criteria I buy them. Now a closet full of round neck sweaters is so boring so maybe that’s were my fascination for elbow patches started. And while these anchor’s are not exactly patches they are placed at the right spot and just that one special detail detail that sets this sweater apart from all the other sweaters I have. Including all the striped ones I own. | Jacket ZARA | Sweater ASOS | Pants ZARA | Heels ZARA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

BLACK, BLUE & GOLD

Sometimes your’e so happy with a new purchase but later on you feel even more happy about it. Well that’s exactly the case with these boots. I loved them since they first arrived but now they have proven to be super comfortable and giving a luxury touch to any outfit. After not wearing  boots for a long time these ones surly made me loving boots again. This time I combined them with a A-line skirt, a cable sweater and the jacket I can’t do without. Succes guaranteed. | Jacket H&M | Sweater ZARA | Skirt ASOS | Boots NELLY | Bag CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

ALL THAT WANG

This Wang dress is one of the best purchases I did last year. Same for this jacket and heels form Zara, their both so comfortable that combine them with almost anything in my wardrobe, from dresses to jeans. Experiences like these made me realize that I should buy less and invest more. In the end, you can only spend your money once and you better spend it wise. Now let’s hope this will be a very successful project.   | Jacket ZARA | Dress ALEXANDER WANG | Bag CHANEL | Heels ZARA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

OKB

Over knee boots, or OKB’s,  can be a tricky item but  I have always loved them. None the less, you don’t want to end up looking like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. One of the reason I always style mine in a classic way. Preferably with a dress, sometimes with skinny jeans a la Kate Moss. She definitely know how style hers, but then again, she looks good in anything right.  Back to my outfit and these boots. I first spotted them in last month’s Glamour magazine and fell in love immediately. Like so many things seen in magazines I always find them hard to track down and when I do finally find them the usually are; 1 Overpriced, 2 Don’t look as good in real life, 3 not my cup of tea after all. Well I’m sure you can guess this was not the question with these babies. I think we are going to walk many miles together, comfortable and chic, just what I needed. | Dress Zara | Boots NLY | Bag and Sunnies CHANEL | Jewelry Christian Dior |   | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

BORROWED

I was always a fan of borrowing from the boys but after I started wearing his clothes more regulary this season it seems like I can’t get enough anymore. More and more I find pieces that, when I’m being honest, I don’t want to give back anymore. Like his sweater, shirt and my latest discovery, this jacket. All current favorites of mine. It all misfits me perfectly, just like the Parisian style that I love so much. | Jacket ZARA men | Sweater Iris&Ink | Jeans ZARA | Heels ZARA | Clutch ZARA | Sunnies CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

NEW BEGINNINGS

Looks like 2014 is really going to be an amazing year. The weather has never been so soft and I’m really enjoying it. I also really love cold and snow but only for a week or two. These days I can still wear my heels without socks and I do not have to hide myself under ten layers of clothes. And with the sun also shining the start of the year couldn’t be better. First on my agenda for this year, stylewise, was this scarf as a shoulderstrap thing. I saw it in a magazine not to long ago (also posted it on my Instagram) and it immediately inspired me to do this with my own vintage Kelly look-a-like. I think it looks really smart and creative, and not only is it very cool it’s also very practical. . | Sweater ZARA | Shirt ZARA | Jeans ONLY | Heels TOPSHOP | Bag Vintage with CHANEL Scarf | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

BLACK

There is absolutely nothing that I can say about black that I haven’t said before. It is, and always will be, my favorite non color. And after sort of deciding to buy more black (yep, more not less) I feel like I have more choice in what to wear. Somehow I just feel a lot more secure when wearing black, in winter time that is, and it’s just the perfect base to build an outfit from. Like a little magic touch, maybe that’s why they call it black magic. | Sweater H&M | Pants ZARA | Scarf Louis Vuitton | Heels Dune | Clutch ZARA | Bracelet CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

PLEATED

The perfect party is not complete without the perfect dress. That’s one of the reasons I always start the hunt for a perfect outfit as early as possible. Off course I also love the hunt it self, especially when you succeed, and you find that once piece you have been searching for. It can also be one hell of a stressful event I experienced so myself. After carefully sourcing the web and spitted trough all of my favorite stores I finally stumbled upon the perfect party dress for my 31th birthday. I ordered it 7 days before the date I actually needed it, well in time you would think. Well, think again. I ordered it on a Friday and received a message on Saturday it was already on it’s way, so far so good. I was literally jumping for joy when I received a text message on Tuesday that it would be delivered that day. Well that attempt failed cause the postman showed up at the fifthteen minutes no one was home that day. Agrrrrrrr, but he, a new attempt was planned for the next day so no worries. Well, more worries was yet to come when my parcel got […]
