DRESSCODE

Can you wear a coat as a dress? Of course you can. Just simply put on a pair of opaque tights, add a belt and a pair of fabulous heels. No one will notice the difference.   | Coat and Sweater ZARA | Tights WOLFORD | Heels SOPHIA WEBSTER | Sunnies PRADA |

STARS

‘Life’s a party, but it’s your job to hang out the bunting! So true if you ask me. And the bunting? Just hanging in my closet! I believe every day is a party and nothing more fun than getting ready to party. Most of the time I like that evermore than the party itself. Or just wear a beautiful dress on any given day, just because I can. Because,¬†we live in a free country were woman can wear whatever they want. Even a party dress in the middle of the day, combined with a sweater and a denim jacket. I love it! Het leven is een feestje, je moet alleen zelf de slingers ophangen. Wat mij betreft helemaal waar. En die slingers? Die hangen bij mij gewoon in de kast!¬†Wat mij betreft is het elke dag feest, niets leuker dan mezelf lekker optutten voor een feestje. Vaak vind ik dat nog leuker dan het feestje zelf.¬†Of gewoon een mooie jurk aantrekken, gewoon omdat het kan. Omdat wij in een vrij land wonen waar je als vrouw mag dragen wat je wilt. Zelfs een avondjurk midden op de dag met een trui en een spijkerjack. Ik hou ervan! | Dress¬†RECLAIMED VINTAGE […]

MELLOW YELLOW

Yellow. I used to hate this this color so much, and only because my mom said it sooted me. Much rather I wore pink, like the person I most looked up to, my big sister. These days, yellow is one of my favorite colors and even my man, kid and house get their shair. Luckily not reluctantly. Mother are always right, in the end…….     | Coat ZARA | Top COS | Pants COS | Heels MANGO | Bag CHANEL |

ATEAM

I’m always carrying a vest or jacket in case I get cold. During the day I put it on or take it of multiple times, usually depends on whether I’m sitting still or not. So comfort is key and off course the need to look good. A black blazer is always my number 1 choice but to for some variation I depend on this casual vest. I love how it really works well with everything. From jeans to black dresses, even a classic office look gets better. One of my best buys from last year.   | Vest MANGO | Shirt LOST INK | Trouser ZARA | Heels ZARA | Bag MANGO |

JUST ONE

Trend come and go and after many years of experimenting I feel like I’m finally getting closer to my ideal wardrobe. Mainly because the last few years I shop by the Pareto principle, also known as the 80‚Äď20 rule. This means that 20% of what I’m buying is trendy or a real eye-catcher and 80% is timeless and of good quality. I also realized that 80% of the time I’m only wearing 20% of my wardrobe. I can go on forever because actually you can apply the 20/80 rule everywhere. But as I’m not here to lecture anyone I will stop here. I just love to wear black and jeans (80%) and something trendy (20%). So far a mathematical explanation of this outfit. If¬†my math teacher explained it like this I probably would have paid more attention…..   | Jacket ZARA | Top ASOS | Jeans ZARA | Heels TOPSHOP | Bag CHANEL |

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 |

FLARE

I know men (mine included) don’t always understand the fashion choices we make but the flared jeans always seems to be the most criticized one. It al started this summer when the skinny jeans got some serious competition of the culotte and now followed by the flare. Personally I think men just naturally have an aversion for anything wide or concealing. Luckily I’ve been the type to worry about that, if you don’t like what you see just look the other way, at least for now ;)   | Blouse ZARA | Jacket H&M | Jeans ZARA | Bag MANGO | Hat ZARA | Heels TOPSHOP |

OVER MY SCHOULDERS

I love to wear my coat the fashionable way (read; over the shoulder) but like everyone, I’m always struggling to keep it in place. Now a cape short of gives me the same fashionable feeling but with a little more comfort. So when I spotted this cape-jacket I knew this was the solution. I absolutely love it so much that I’m even considering buying it in black as well. Perfect for next season, non? | Cape jacket ZARA | T-shirt ASOS | Jeans REPLAY | Heels DOLCE&GABBANA | Bag VINTAGE |

UP HIGH

Special occasions are always a good excuse to purchase something really special. And with something really special I mean serious designer stuff. So last year, when my hormones were at an all time high I spotted the most gorgeous Sophia Webster heels online. Not your everyday splurge but really something for a special occasion. And of course I had just the perfect occasion in mind, our baby girls first party to introduce her to all of our family, friends and acquaintances. A few days later a big gift box arrived at my door and when I opened it I jumped for joy. They were perfect except for 1 minor detail, they didn’t fit. Being 8 months pregnant does not go so well with high heels, especially high heels with narrow ankle straps. But I kept faith that after giving birth it all would go back to its normal size. And as you can see, luckily it did. 4 weeks after giving birth I was wearing these beauties for Chlo√©‘s first party.   | Jacket H&M | Jeans ZARA | Bag ZARA | Heels SOPHIA WEBSTER | Sunnies PRADA |

CITY SAFARI

I love to try new combinations and new stuff, trying to make them my own and blend in to my wardrobe. But this time trying something new does not involve new stuff. I simply combined two pieces that I had never worn together before. Funny, because both the jacket and the pants are among the most worn pieces in my wardrobe. Together they make a whole new statement, like I’m on some kind of city safari or something. Anyway, I really like the feeling of this combination that much that it got me thinking of buying a utility jumpsuit. I’m really going for green this summer. | Jacket H&M | Trousers RIVER ISLAND | Broche CHANEL | Heels ZARA | | Sunglasses PRADA | Bag PAUL’S BOUTIQUE |

THE NEW SKINNY

When I’m not wearing a skinny jeans I’m usually wearing some sort of black skinny trousers and the leather version (real or fake) is by far my favorite. Easy to combine with almost everything, dressed up or dressed down, this garment will do the trick. Even now when the weather is turning for the better I can not live without this style anymore. | Jacket ZARA | Pants H&M | Top ZARA | Heels KURT GEIGER | Bag ZARA | | Sunglasses CHANEL | Bracelets KENNETH JAY LANE | .

THE LONGEST

Looks like an old friend of mine is back and he’s here to stay for good. You either love him or hate him but from now on there no way arround it annymore. So take a stand and stick to it, no need to tell you which camp I choose. I know it’s not the most easy style to wear since they don’t fit every body type very easily.¬†But if you find the perfect one than they will serve you well. A good pair will make your legs go on for miles and slims your waist to its very best point. Mine is always high waisted and super long so I can wear them with my highest heels. If you weren’t a fan already maybe you are now. . | Jacket ZARA | Top COS | Jeans MANGO | Bag + broche CHANEL | Necklace PIECES | | Heels FENDI | Ring YSL | Sunglasses PRADA | | Follow me on¬†FACEBOOK¬†|¬†INSTAGRAM¬†| | TWITTER¬†|¬†PINTEREST¬†|¬†TUMBLR¬†|

STRIPED

I know, it’s starting to look like an obsession but I just can’t stop buying stripes. I simply love anything striped, weater it’s a sweater, a pair of shoes or a dress, I own at least one pair and I love it. Exactly the reason that I bought this dress. It’s got summer written all over it and because of the comfortable streching fabric I will be able to wear it for a long period of time. | Jacket H&M | Dress ZARA | Clutch LOUIS VUITTON | Heels ZARA | Sunnies PRADA | . | Follow me on¬†FACEBOOK¬†|¬†INSTAGRAM¬†|¬†TWITTER¬†|¬†PINTEREST¬†| TUMBLR |

THE BLACK BLAZER

Ever in search of the perfect black blazer I stumbled upon this one at Zara. Almost matching all off my requirements and helped by the fact that my old one really needs a stand in every now and then, I decided to purchase this one. Only missing a button and matching hole at the front closure, which is something that can be fixed, if I ever wanted to. Worn with a white t-shirt and black skinny’s always a winner. | Blazer ZARA | Tshirt ZARA | Pants TOPSHOP | Heels H&M | Clutch HEMA | . | Follow me on¬†FACEBOOK¬†|¬†INSTAGRAM¬†|¬†TWITTER¬†|¬†PINTEREST¬†|

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¬†|

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 |

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 |

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 |

BLACK COMFORT

Time to bring back casual friday! Now that we’re all loving the trends from back in the nineties I also plead for bringing back Casual Friday. Or was it never gone? Anyway, this season there are a numerous of comfortable items to shop and to wear. Like these sort of sweatpants from Zara. Yes they are made of the most comfortable cotton fabric but they are also structured at the waist and knees just to give them a little more day wear appeal. Worn with my favorite bikerjacket and my most comfortable high heels of the moment (my favorite pair for this winter already) it’s the perfect outfit for my own casual Friday. Cause my Friday’s usually consist of running arrants, grocery shopping, cleaning and getting some work done, I want to be comfortable yet stylish. And for me, this outfit just does all that. . | Jacket ZARA | Top COS | Pants ZARA | Heels ZARA | Bag CHANEL | Sunglasses H&M | . | Follow me on¬†FACEBOOK¬†|¬†INSTAGRAM¬†|¬†TWITTER¬†|¬†PINTEREST¬†|TUMBLR |

VOGUE PARIS

I love a good Vogue t-shirt, after receiving the first one last summer from Dutch Vogue, I laid my eyes on the Fashion Night Out edition from Vogue Paris. The only problem was it was only available in France, included with the September issue. Lucky for me I already had a trip planned to Paris early September, so the first thing I scored on my shoppingspree was this t-shirt. To bad I had to leave Paris before the actual Fashion Night Out on September 17, sadly sometimes you can’t have it all. | Jacket ZARA | T-shirt Vogue Paris | Pants ZARA | Heels &OtherStories | Bag CHANEL | Necklace Pieces | . | Follow me on¬†FACEBOOK¬†|¬†INSTAGRAM¬†|¬†TWITTER¬†|¬†PINTEREST¬†|¬†TUMBLR¬†|

SUPERDRY

Photo credit: Lex Selman Stripes seem to be essential for this summer. I guess because they are so classic and so modern that makes me love them so much. The latest addition to my collection is this shirt from Superdry. Perfect to style with any summer skirt or short and off course my favorite pointy heels of late, also striped, from Dune.   Now I off to hang by the pool, to hot here to stay dry today.

YVES

So here’s the rest of my outfit from my first ever Giveaway powered by¬†Claire van Kuler. Because Yves Saint Laurent is the inventor of Le Smoking I teamed my Yves t-shirt with my modern view on his creation, with this combination you can never go wrong. For some more modernity I combined it with some of my favorite jewelry by YSL, the arty oval ring and this not so practical but oh so beautiful vintage YSL bracelet.
