‘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 |

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 |

CUPID

Sometimes cupid shoots straight into my heart, like when I spotted this perfect all-year-around-wearable sweater from Carven. Not only perfect for the new season to come (my favorite, fall!) But also on a chilly summer day or on a winters day. Combines perfectly with all denim and black pieces. Just the type of clothing you are never looking for but always have to have in your closet.   | Sweater CARVEN | Skirt MANGO | Heels ZARA | Bag CHANEL | Sunnies PRADA |

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 |

CAPETOWN

If you are going to invest in just 1 thing this coming season then let it be a cape. Pregnant or not, this is the most practical cover-up ever. Not to mention so stylish and instand chic. It’s like the Parisienne of cover-ups, it’s got that Je ne say qua” written all over it. I scored mine already 2 winters ago and still I love to wear it as much as I can. These sunny days in fall with only a sweater under neath and in winter time combined with a leather jacket for extra warmth. Whenever you find the perfect one, don’t hasitate but grap it while you still can! . | Cape ZARA | Sweater COS | Leggings H&M | Shoes MANGO | Shopper Louis Vuitton | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR | .

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 | .

BLACKSTREET

The past few weeks have been like an extensive part of summer, the perfect opportunity to wear my favorite winter pieces in a different way than I would in actual winter time. While following the latest fashion trends for the upcoming season I noticed that the seventies are still a popular eara among my favorite designers. Well, and what’s more seventies than miniskirts and overknee boots. I love them in all black, giving them some extra edge and giving them a real modern feel. I mostly wear them with some other classics, like my boyfriends v-neck sweater and my new favorite bag from Diane Von Furstenberg. This bag has the perfect size to fit all of my daily needs combined with the perfect look to brighten up my all black looks. For sure a combination that I will wear all lot this coming winter. . | Sweater ZARA Men | Skirt MANGO | Boots NELLY | Bag DVF | Sunnies PRADA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR | .

CLEAN SLATE

So after wearing black and only black these past few weeks I was so ready to make a clean slate. And what better way to break a habit by doing the exact opposite. So an all white outfit it is. Besides black, white is my favorite color these days, I know it will never bore me. August is also always the month when I start with a clean slate wardrobe wise. I stop buying summer clothes and dive right into the new season. And this year I’m more excited then ever before. Planning my wardrobe beyond my pregnancy is something that really keeps me going (fashion wise) right now. Not that I don’t enjoy the physical state my body is in right now because I really love it, but let’s just say getting dressed is a lot easier  when your carrying around a baby belly. My first purchase are these super comfortable hairy sneakers. Perfect to wear now with bare legs and later on with pants or tights. They will be the base for my wardrobe this winter. A kick-off for my new style that will match my new lifestyle. Never thought that I would become someone that puts comfort […]

SNEAKERS

This dress was the first piece of maternity wear I bought. Traditional maternity wear never excited me but thanks to Topshop and Asos that problem is fully covered. I love how their collections are mostly inspired by young and trendy women, something I can relate to. I also immediately bought myself a pair super comfy sneakers, the original Nike air max that I also owned about twenty years ago (and yes, that makes me feel really old). Ever since I became a heels-only girl I totally forgot how comfortable they can be. And now that I’m sort of forced to wear them I really love all this comfortable stuff and I get the feeling I’m not going to give it up any more.   | Dress TOPSHOP | Sneakers NIKE | Bag MANGO | Sunnies PRADA | . | 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 |

EARLY SPRING

Looks like we having a major early spring this year. The temperatures are rising to a point it’s actually pleasant again to wear heels without socks. Not that that bothers me but it’s a nice side effect. An other side effect of spring is that I always feel the need to lighten up my hair and so that’s exactly what I did last Friday. Nothing feels like spring than some fresh light colors. Yesterday I matched my clothes to my new hair and went for an all soft color palette of camel, white and soft grey. Now spring definitely feels near.   | Camel Coat ZARA | Sweater ZARA | Jeans MANGO | Heels ZARA | Bag H&M | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

DRESSCOAT

Besides all the big puffy coats that I have been comfortably wearing non-stop this winter I wanted something more dressy. Something more polished and fitted. Well, be carefull what you wish for, because within days I spotted this coat at Zara. Because of the voilant it’s almost more like a dress than a coat, something that definitely sets it appart from all my other coats. The only thing I did not like about it was the original belt that came along with it. So I swapped it with a belt of my own and voila, the perfect dresscoat. | Coat ZARA | Pants H&M | Heels MANGO | Clutch ZARA | Necklace PIECES | Watch ASOS | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

WHITE LEATHER

Recently I discovered an old favorite of mine, this white leather jacket from Mango that I bought years ago. I don’t wear it very often but last week I realized I should wear it more. The size and fit are still perfect and the leather ages so beautiful. Also, white is on top of my list since last summer and will be again this coming summer. When I bought this jacket about ten years ago it was sort of an investment, pricewise, for me. Now its proof to me that buying investment pieces is really the best you can do for your wardrobe.   | Jacket Mango | Sweater COS | Jeans ZARA | Heels ZARA | Sunnies CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

BARGAIN

Last week I scored this super cool sweater at the Zara Sale. Never shaw this sweater before, not in store or online, but that’s just what’s so cool about Zara. Just one of those gems you sometimes walk in to. And at one fifth of it’s original price, which is nearly nothing at Zara, I had to take it home with me. Maybe it’s a little bit over the top but paired down with jeans it’s balances perfectly well.   | Sweater ZARA | Jeans ZARA | Heels TOPSHOP | Bag Vintage Kelly | Accessories CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

CLASSICS

The last weekend before New Year I spend a few precious days with my familiy at this gorgeous castle near Maastricht, celebrating my parents 40th wedding anniversary. On days like these, when you don’t know what the activities will be, I always dress “safe” and so I usually make a combination of my favorite classics. This time I combined my pinstripe jacket (how classic can you go) with a pair of brogues (truly classics) and my ever favorite Chanel bag (classic of classics). Off course, the lastest addition to my vintage collection, a big Gucci scarf was not to be missed. Already such a big favorite that, I can tell you right now, you will see many more times to come. I guess everybody has his own favorites and classics that can’t be missed and these are definitely mine. . | Jacket MANGO | Pants H&M | Scarf Vintage GUCCI | Bag CHANEL | Shoes ZARA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

DRESSED

After I experimented with my skirt and jeans outfit, which I really loved, I also kicked off a whole (old) new type of dressing for myself. About ten to twelve years ago I loved wearing skirts and dresses with pants underneath but someshow trough the years my taste changed and I stopped wearing it. And now I’m loving it all over again. It’s feels sort of new but also very familiar. So when I was picking out an outfit to wear for Christmas I totally fell for this combination. It’s a dress, so festive, but worn with faux leather leggings for some extra comfort and to give it more of an edge. Perfect for a day spend with family and long dinners.   | Dress &OtherStories | Faux Leather pants H&M | Heels Mango | Bag Dior | Watch Michael Kors | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

ON TOP

I always love to try new combinations, especially in the comfort of my own dressing room,  one of my favorites things to do on a rainy Sunday. So when I saw this picture popping up online during Paris fashion week I immediately saved it in my style inspiration folder. Off course I forgot all about it until I saw this skirt. A look like this depends very strongly on the perfect skirt and somehow I felt this one was made for it. Now you can decide for yourself weather you like it or not but sometimes I just love to push my boundaries and just have a “Carrie” moment if you know what I mean. | Top COS | Skirt H&M | Jeans ONLY | Heels Mango | Scarf Louis Vuitton | Shoulderbag ZARA | Ring YSL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

BELTED

The last time I wore this coat it was al about wanting to wear it, this time I really need to wear it. The days that I could do without a coat are officially over. The best thing however, and one of the many reasons I bought this coat, is that you can wear it many ways. By closing it with a belt it suddenly becomes all feminine, almost like a dress. To bad that I cant wear it inside.   | Jacket MANGO | Heels & Clutch ZARA | Sunnies H&M | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |TUMBLR |

PINSTRIPE

While the weather is still warm for this time of year, ultimately the days will get colder, my hunt for the perfect winter coat has started. On the top of my list is definitely a navy blue example. Not only did I not own one I also believe this will be the to go to color for me this winter. The first jacket that meets all my needs is this gorgeous pinstripe from Mango Suit. It’s very sleek and polished and workes perfectly with the rest of my wardrobe. Already have lots of ways to wear it and this time I choose to wear it with another classic dessin, the pied-de-poele. . | Jacket Mango | Sweater ZARA | Skirt Vintage | Heels ZARA | Bag ZARA | Watch Michael Kors | Sunnies CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |TUMBLR |

MADE FOR WALKING

Our sunday in Paris was well spend, after a late breakfast we were of to explore an area we’ve never been to before, the Quartier Latin.  Based in the 5th and  6th arrondissement it is situated on the left bank of the Seine, therefore, in my oppinion it’s much more quiet and less crowded (read touristic) then the rest of Paris. Especially on a sunday this is were you can spot the real Parisians and blend in a little, or just try to. We visited the impressive Pantheon, walked around the beautiful Jardin des Plantes, had a late lunch at the Mosquée de Paris and walked around some more. Another perfect day in Paris. To end this perfect day we had dinner with our lovely Parisian family that always make me want to spend every weekend in Paris. But after all that walking a girl needs some steady heels to keep her on her feet. I was so happy I brought these booties with me for this trip. Not only do I think the are very cool and a bit more edgy the what I normally wear, they are also made for walking. High and comfortale, that’w what I want, just like Paris. […]

BLACK BEACH

Santorini beaches are world famous for the volcanic origin of the black sand beach of Perissa and Kamari so for our stay we choose an appartment near the beach of Perissa. Not only is this the place to be during the day, after the sun sets, the beachclubs turn into nightclubs and the restaurant have the most gorgeous views on the beach. It couldn’t get any more romantic and atmospferic then this. Even when your’e not a beach lover like me (I know it sound crazy but I hate the sand between my toes) you have to make a walk along these shores to experience these magical coastlines. So it only felt natural to wear this long black dress for the first time on this black beach. Black meets black, and off course a touch of turquoise as a hint of sea. Inspiration can come from anywere but nothing beats mother natures color combinations if you ask me.   | Dress ZARA | Heels ZARA | Necklaces Dyrberg/Kern | Bag & Sunnies CHANEL | Ring H&M | Bracelet Mango | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

ON THE SPOT

As we speak I’m in Santorini finally enjoying my summer holiday. But as a good girl I shot some outfit photo’s over the weekend to keep you occupied while I’m gone haha. Although I still in the summer modus I also look ahead to the new season by buying this dress. Works perfectly now, with tanned skin and summer sandals, and in fall or winter with tights and a cool jacket. But for now I’m going to enjoy the sun of Greece, see you soon! xo H   | Dress Glamorous via ASOS | Heels ZARA | Clutch ZARA | Sunnies H&M | Watch Michael Kors | Bracelet Mango | Ring H&M | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |
