SALE SCORE

Sale, you either love it or hate but you can’t hide from it. And that’s exactly why I’ve turned myself into a sale lover. Back in the days, when we could only shop in stores haha, I really hated this time of year. Messy stores and crowded streets, not my type of shopping. But ever since I started shopping online I also started to love the sales. Nothing beats sale shopping out of the comfort of my own home or office. And over time I have learned a few tricks as well. For one, I have subscribed myself to the mailing-list of all my favorite stores so I know exactly when the sale starts and when to get the best discounts. Then, when I spot something I love I always ask myself 1 question; would I buy it if it was not on sale? If, the answer is NO¬†than don’t do it. You will not be happy in the end. And last but not least, stick to the basics and things you are sure of to wear over and over again. This way you would be buying anything just because it was on sale. And so that’s basically how this […]

H&M STUDIO MINI ME

What do you say when H&M asks you if you would like to do an exclusive photo shoot for their new H&M Studio Kids line? You say yes of course. And so it happened that on a morning in August, with temperatures rising up to 30 degrees that day, we were shooting these super cool matching fur coats. Circumstances¬†like these brings out the worst in people and shows who the real professionals are. And I have to say, Chlo√© already is a real professional. The whole time she was smiling, clapping her hands and flirting with the camera. What’s that to say about me? I guess she’s just so used to being photographed all the time that it is just normal and fun to her. And she loves all the attention of course, but then, who does’t. So, before I’m turning into a Kardashian kinda momanager, please stop me :)   ¬†| Photo’s exclusive for Fabulous Mama and Fabmama.nl¬†– ¬†Photo’s by LEX SELMAN | | Me: Coat H&M Studio | Chlo√©: Coat H&M Studio mini-me |

CORNERSTONE

I always rather dress up than dress down, but ever since I was pregnant and later on being a mom I noticed than on many days comfort is key. So to compensate or sometimes to hide my comfortable or understated looks I found the perfect cover-up. Ever since I spotted this gem online I couldn’t get it of my mind, and that’s always a very bad sign as you know. But ever since it arrived in my life I haven’t regret it for one second. Like any coat should be, it’s the perfect cornerstone for my wardrobe 2.0. | Coat ASOS BLACK | Sweater COS | Jeans and Shoes ZARA | Bag H&M | Sunglasses PRADA | | 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¬†|

PATCHES

As a denim designer and lover I’m always on the hunt for a new pair to add to my collection or to be inspired by. My latest score is this pair with patches from H&M. Somehow they always fit me perfectly and I love how they are always on top of the trends combined with a very affordable price. To create some balance I always combine pair of statement jeans like this with some modern classics like these simple strappy heels and a men‚Äôs shirt. And now that spring has officially arrived I wanted to wear my fur stola for one last time, I love how it brings just a bit of fun in all of my outfits. For now I hope I don’t need it anymore to keep me warm and that the sun will take over from here.

OH SO BLUE

These pants and booties were by far the most worn items that I wore last week when strolling the streets of Gaschurn. When the temperatures drop being comfortable get more and more important for me and these 2 are just all that, comfortable without giving up on style. And although I wore them with pleasure I’m also very happy that I didn’t get to wear them any more since I got back home. Even though I really love winter and I love an all snowy landscape I’m so glad to be back home were spring is already up on us and I can easily were my favorite heels without slipping. | Sweater ZARA Men | Fur stola H&M Trend | Pants H&M | Booties BUFFALO | Sunnies CHANEL | . | Follow me on¬†FACEBOOK¬†|¬†INSTAGRAM¬†|¬†TWITTER¬†|¬†PINTEREST¬†|

TWINKLE

Even an avid heels wearer like me needs to give her feet a break every now and then. But when I do so I always make sure they are elegant. I love to wear simple ballet flats, loafers and classic Converse All Stars. And off course in summer time I opt for some fabulous sandals or slippers. These cute shimmering loafers were an end of the sales buy at Zara this summer but after wearing them I new why, they were not so comfortable at all. Blisters all over my heels were the result of a small walk from our car to the hotel in Paris last September. So far no good. Luckily I always make sure I have lots of shoes to choose from when I travel. Back home I ignored them for a while after deciding to give them a second chance and brought them to my shoemaker. And voil√†, one little patch was all I needed for my twinkle flats to be comfortable after all. | Jacket ONLY | Sweater KENZO | Pants H&M | Loafers ZARA | Clutch ZARA | Watch Michael Kors | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST […]

WAISTED

When I stumbled up on these light grey heels I immediately fell for them. This pointy shoe with it’s soft grey color is  perfect for when I want to give my black heels a rest. And if they manage to survive the winter they will also match perfectly to my spring and summer wardrobe. For now, the weather is still warm enough to wear them bare footed. Perfect with this high waisted pants that I also couldn’t resist. Combined with a simple black top, my BFF (best fake fur haha) and a cute embellished bag I’m feeling all Marlene Dietrich. | Fur Stola H&M | Top COS | Trousers ZARA | Heels ZARA | Bag ASOS | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

FAUX

Something faux fur is always an essential for me to have in my winter wardrobe. I love them as a short jacket (see it here) a sort off scarf (see it here) or as this short sleeved longer jacket. It comfortable and cool at¬† the same time and perfect for these in-between-weather days. This time I combined with my all time favorite boyfriend jeans that I already have for several years. I already put it in my “classics” section, alongside these nude heels, another new classic. Maybe a denim blouse will also become a all time favorite, I been wearing them on a regular base the last couple off years. In the end that’s the most important thing for me, love the things you wear and wear the things you love. . | Jacket ZARA | Denim Shirt H&M | Boyfriend REPLAY | Heels ZARA | Sunnies H&M | Necklace PIECES | Ring YSL | . | Follow me on¬†FACEBOOK¬†|¬†INSTAGRAM¬†|¬†TWITTER¬†|¬†PINTEREST¬†|TUMBLR |

THE PART

Last Saturday we filmed the second episode of Fashion Trends by Hanneke Verstegen, if you haven’t seen it yet check it out here. Just before we shot these outfit photo’s of the dress that I was wearing that day. I just only recently re-discoverd this brand while browsing through the new-in section at Asos. I always loved the aesthetic of Whistles but somehow it slipped my mind, unless, until a couple of weeks ago. For sure they are my go-to brand from now on when I want something special. The fake fur is a whole different story though. I’ts an online exclusive from H&M, what I love most about is the blue/black shade and the sleeved construction inside that keeps it in place so very well. I can already think off a dozen ways to wear it this fall and winter. Highstreet combined with high-end, just the way I like it.   | Dress Whistles via Asos | Heels &OtherStories | Fake Fur H&M | Necklace Pieces | Ring H&M | . | Follow me on¬†FACEBOOK¬†|¬†INSTAGRAM¬†|¬†TWITTER¬†|¬†PINTEREST¬†|¬†TUMBLR¬†|
