PARIS: JOUR 3

The reason I planned this trip to Paris was that I wanted to buy myself a new Chanel bag for my 30th birthday but when I won the Marie Claire Prix de la Mode I also won a trip to Paris with a Volvo V40 with chauffeur for a day, 1000 euro shopping-money, champagne and finger-food and a friend to take with me. So I changed my plan and made this trip a research-trip to find out exactly what I want to buy. Don’t get me wrong, I have an exact idea in my head what I want to have but I don’t know if it’s still in stores. I know it needs to be black and with gold hardwear but whit the Cruise 12/13 collection in store that’s not easy to find. The cruise collection is more about silver and pastel colors, beautiful, but not what I planned to buy. Hopefully when I return in a few weeks I find my timeless new addition. Off course I wanted to blend in in all the Chanel-stores so I choose to wear another all black ensamble, a petite robe noir with flats and my favorite Chanel accessories.   | Dress COS […]

PARIS: JOUR 2

On our second day in Paris we went to one of my favorite places in Paris (that I just discovered last year)  Le Bon Marche. And to my liking the Christmas windows were already on display and inside the Hollyday decoration was also fully present. Enough to totally get me in the Christmas-mood. For the occasion I wore my grey Paris sweater from Mango and kept the rest black and simple, just like a real Parisienne ( I hope).   | Coat Zara | Sweater Mango | Trouser Cos | Over-knee boots Zara | Bag Chanel | Scarf Chanel | Necklace Dior | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

THE WHITE SHIRT

Sometimes a simple thing like a white shirt can give your outfit a total different look. I borrowed this one from my boyfriend beacuse I wanted a little more lenght. But now after wearing it I think I’m gonna keep it because now I can think of many more great combinations. Just take one look at my favorite designer Karl L and you’ll know I mean.     | Jacket H&M | Sweater H&M | Shirt Zara Men | Skirt Asos | Heels & Bag Zara | Sunnies Mango | Rings Dyrberg/Kern | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

FROM THE START

Whenever I choose an outfit  I always start from the bottom up, which shoe am I going to wear.  So when I decide to wear  a very conspicuous shoe I usually tend to dress down a bit. This dress from COS is just perfect for that, in fact, anything black is. And that’s just the way I like it, an comfortable outfit with lot’s of  accessories.   | Dress COS | Scarf Louis Vuitton | Sunnies Mango | Shoes Asos | Ring YSL | Bracelet Mango | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

THE CARGO

A green cargo pant is one of the things I never get tired of. Winter or summer (see my summer version here), dressed up or dressed down, I love them.  Today I wear it with a black blazer and some of my current favorite jewelry.     | Jacket H&M | Sweater COS | Cargo pants River Island | Shoes Chanel | Bag Zara | Necklace Zara | Bracelet Anna Dello Russo at H&M | Ring YSL |   Photo’s by Lex Selman | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

FAKE FUR, REAL LEATHER

It’s getting colder outside,  time to bring out the fake furs. I scored this short-sleeved beauty last year at the last of the last sale at Zara (at 1/5 of the original price, lucky me). Oddly enough I never seen it before in stores, not even online. To be honest I’m not a big fan of Zara-sales and usually I don’t have the patience to comb the racks, but this furry affair managed to caught my eye. And although it not so practical to wear (short sleeved, winter time, hello what was I thinking??? maybe that’s why nobody bought it??) I still love it, simply because it looks good in my closet.   | Fake Fur Coat Zara | T-shirt H&M | Leather Skirt No Label | Booties Zara | Sunnies Zara | Rings Mango, H&M | .

INDIAN SUMMER WEAR

Last change to rework some of my favorote summer items by combining them with my (already) favorite new ones. Like this sweater I bought at COS a few weeks back. I’ve already worn it many times and I have to warn you, you will see it a lot more in the weeks to come.   | Sweater COS | Trouser H&M | Bag Zara | Shoes Miu Miu | Earrings Asos | Bangles Mango | Ring H&M | Sunnies Zara | .

SAY GOODBYE

My last change to wear short shorts with bare legs, fall is officially here. When the times comes I always find it really hard to adjust my looks to the rainy weather. In august, when the first winter pieces are available in store, I cant wait to wear boots and jackets, now all I want is to wear my sandals and peep-toes. Somethings will never change I guess. Luckily their are are always a few items in my wardrobe that work any day, like this playsuit from Asos.  Their are two things I love about it; 1. the print, as you know Paris is by far my favorite city in the world and 2. it can be worn all year round, in winter with black tights and a jacket and in summer with high heeled sandals and a statement necklace. For now it’s a combination of summer and winter, best of both worlds.   | Mango Jacket | Asos Playsuit | Zara Sandals | H&M Clutch | Zara Necklace | Michael Kors Watch | H&M Ring | Zara Sunnies | | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

NEW IN: PEPLUM SKIRT

Last week I finally found the perfect peplum skirt. After looking for one for months of course I found it at my favorite high street store Zara. I especially love the combination of fabric and leather, it makes the skirt looks a bit tougher, just the way I like it.   Top Zara | Skirt Zara | Bag Zara | Shoes Zara | Ring YSL | Bracelet Chanel | Sunglasses Mango | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

THE CANADIAN SUIT

When wearing a denim shirt and jeans together it’s called a Canadian Suit and until a year or so ago a total no-go. Only appropriate for cowboys living on a ranch. And as for me, I never thought I would wear this combination but today I thought I should give it a try.  And to my own surprise, after I made it my own by adding some statement jewelery and a pair of heels, I really loved it. No doubt I would wear it again.   Denim shirt: Sincere, Jeans: H&M, Clutch, Belt & Sunglasses: Zara, Shoes: Gucci, Necklaces: Mango & H&M, Brooch: Bijenkorf Collection, Watch: Michael Kors, Ring: Versace for H&M   Photo’s by Lex Selman | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

J’ADORE PARIS

Paris is by far the favorite city I’ve ever been. I try to visit it a often as I possibly can and since a few years I’m developing a weakness for “Paris” inspired items. My latest find is this gray sweater from Mango. I wear it with a golden necklace and bracelet from Christian Dior that I stole from my mum. This leather skirt used to be much longer, far below the knee. After not wearing it for several years I decided to give it a second life by cutting it short. Now I love to wear it again. Mission accomplished.      Sweater: Mango  Skirt: Real leahter, no label  Shoes: Zara TRF  Bag: H&M  Necklace and Bracelet: Christian Dior  Watch: Michael Kors  Ring: YSL  Sunnies: Mango | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

(DO IT YOURSELF) JEWELED T-SHIRT

Two weeks ago I told you about the Jeweled trend I was spotting everywhere. I futured a Miu Miu t-shirt that I really loved but that was way over my budget. After I couldn’t get it out of my head I decided to give it a try and start making my own version. Here’s how I did it. First I bought a plain white t-shirt at Zara Requirements: Scissor, needle and thread, a variety of sequins, pearls and stones. Ribbon. Start at the front side in the middle and work your way to the shoulderseam. Vary the colors and stones to your own taste. Leave some space at the center back for a knotted ribbon. In total I spend about 30 euro’s, a far cry from the original that retails for 520 euro at mytheresa.com . Make the shirt your centerpiece and wear it with a black skirt and heels or a simple jeans and flats.   | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

THINK PINK

During weekdays I love to mix some very manly items like cargo pants and a blouse with some very feminine heels and pink lipgloss. Comfortable enough for working and still feminine enough. I alway carry a pair of flats in my workbag in case I have to run an errand. For the finishing touch: Chanel Poudre Tissee Brompton Road and Chanel Levres Scintillantes nr 169 Jalousie lipgloss.    | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |
