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 |

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 |

WHITE

Last Friday it totally hit me, it’s actually 26 degrees warmer now than this time last year. What a difference, but style wise I’m liking it all the way. I even dared to pull out my white jeans, only this time worn with a black coat, more winter appropriate. But then again, this is so a first for me. I never ever worn a white jeans in January before. Now I can only think, why not?? It find it very stylish and sophisticated and my style icons are all doing it for year’s. Never to late to try something new I believe, sometimes you just have to do it. | Coat ZARA | Jeans ZARA | Sweater COS | Bag PRADA | Heels ZARA | Sunnies Stella McCartney | . | 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 |

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 |

STAND IN

New year, new style is what I was thinking. As seen in my last post, The Blues, my black leather jacket is one item I wear on a daily basis almost year round. It give al my outfits a little more cool, from dresses to jeans. But as I’m not one who wants to wear the same things every day (I get bored very soon) it was about time that I found a stand-in for my most trusted wardrobe item. Not that this jacket will replace it but more like another option, a second choice. And it’s not really a leather jacket but it sure does has the same feeling, the coolness. I really love the combination of the leather sleeves and wool body, the golden accessories are also perfect. I hope that in time, while wearing it, it will age beautifully like a good leather jacket should do.   | Jacket ZARA | Sweater H&M | Jeans &OtherStories | Heels ZARA | Bag DIOR | Scarf Vintage GUCCI | . | 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 |

NYE

Another year has past and a new one is just arround the corner. Somehow this year I feel like I can’t wait for the new year to begin. No sad feeling about the last one, I’m all about the new one. Not that I had a bad year or so, it was actually very good, but I’m just so excited about the new year to come. I have all kinds of good intensions and great things planned that I can’t wait to live them. That’s the beauty of a new year for me, technically nothing changes but i’t a great moment to start something new. For now I like to stay with the old for a moment and thank you all for reading this past year, I hope you have enjoyed it as much as it enjoys me and that it inspires you as much as it inspires me. I also like to thank my loved ones and everyone else who’s helped out or supported me this year. I can’t do it without you. Now back to my outfit. New years eve, the perfect moment to wear that partydress you’ve been wanting to wear for a long time. I found […]

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 |

KNITTED

One of my favorite combinations these days are cosy knitted sweaters and (real or fake) leather pants. Stocked up a few to make sure I don’t wear the same pants every day but I no one was watching maybe I would. This sweater is also another steal from my boyfriend, looks really good on him but it’s so comfortable that I love to wear it myself. | Sweater ZARA | Pants H&M | Heels ZARA | Bag Mango | Sunnies and Scarf CHANEL | Bracelets Kenneth Jay Lane, Anna Dello Russo at H&M | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

AT HOME

Yes, sure, the upcoming holiday’s are all about dressing up for me but what I almost never show is that I’m also a big fan of home and sportswear. When I come home I always immediately take off all my jewelry, wrap my hair in a bun and dress down. This usually means I’m wearing one of my many sweatpants and comfy sweaters. Off course, as the fashion girl I am, I always make sure I still look presentable. Washed out, sloppy or old pants and sweater are a absolute no go. So as a result I’m always on the hunt for the perfect suit. The last couple of years I have gathered a few favorite brands, my go to brands are DAZ (also great for sportswear), Rituals (love everything this brand makes) and off course my ever favorite H&M. But back to the holiday’s. The minute I spotted this blue suit at my (yawn) other ever favorite store (yep Zara)( you can yawn again if you please) I immediately saw my self wearing it at Christmas. Not all day of course and only at home. I saw myself being all comfortable yet stylish unwrapping all my gifts under the […]

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 |

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 voilà, 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 |

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 […]

BRUSSELS

So last weekend it was time for our sort of annual  girls weekend spend in Brussels. And this time we decided to also pre-celebrate my 31st brirthday, as you can image we had loads of fun. After visiting Brussels a few times now I’m starting to know my way around the city a little bit, as far as the nightlife that is, because visiting musea is never on the menu with us girls. After we arrived late friday night we stayed in and enjoyed ourselfs with wine and comfort food. My girls surprised me with pink champagne and a lovely gift, the perfect weekend kick-off. After a late night/early morning we started our saturday at lunchtime, enjoying a delicious lunch at Lola. And after our french lunch we hit the streets for some shopping and visited some of the many chocolateries. At night we dined at one of Brussels most gorgeous restaurants Cospaia. After dinner we were surprised with champagne and fireworks in the coctailbar. We ended the night at club Spirito Martini, were we booked a VIP table to spend the rest of the night instyle. Here we were also provided with champagne and fireworks (bottle nr 4 in […]

HIS

There are a few items that I love to borrow from my boyfriends closet. One of them is this white shirt, slightly oversized for me but oh so cool and comfortable to wear to wear. I also love to borrow his scarf, I’m wearing it right now, and off course his sweaters. And should I not forget the boyfriend jeans, also one piece I was borrowing long before they became a style of there own. Borrowing from the boys is just timeless, especially when you make it your own.   | Sweater COS | Men’s shirt ZARA Men | Jeans TOPSHOP | Bag CHANEL | Heels ZARA | Scarf COS | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

CAMEL

This weekend I tought is was time to digg out all my winter coats. One of my favorites ever is this camel number that I bought a few years back. A camel coat is such a big classic and that’s why it’s so easy to wear I find. Still dreaming of one day owning a real Max Mara I still treasure this one. What I also treasure are these booties, they match perfectly to al my favorite outfits. | Coat ZARA | Shirt ZARA | Jeans ONLY | Booties ZARA | Bag VINTAGE | Sunnies H&M | Necklace PIECES | . | 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 |
