UNIFORM

If I was to choose just 1 day outfit to wear the entire season it would be this look. I can honestly say that these are the most worn items in my closet. A smoking blazer, black skinny’s, a fine knitted sweater and ankle boots. In this outfit I can go to my work, visit clients, work from home, go out shopping or even hang out with friends. It’s truly my uniform. It’s comfortable yet dressed up, but yet not to dressed up (at least I think so) it’s safe and I feel good in it. That’s always the most important thing for me I guess, my look has to make me feel secure. If something does not give me confidence than I will not wear it.  In my opinion dressing is about boosting confidence, if you look good then you feel good. Then, and only then, it can become an uniform.   | Jacket H&M | Sweater H&M | Trousers COS | Booties ZARA |

PARDON MOI

The last time I wore this gorgeous dress I was enjoying a heavenly summer holiday on sunny Santorini, Greece. Sadly all good things must come to an end, and now I find myself batteling the auttumn weather. But that doesn’t stop me from reworking some of my summer favorites. And now what better way to rework a summer maxi dress (click HERE to see my summer look) than to just add a fun sweater. This season it functions more like an maxi skirt, easy to combine with all kinds of tops and jackets. This way a sleeveless dress will last all year round. | Dress ZARA TRF | Sweater ASOS | Jacket ZARA | Heels ZARA | Sunnies CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |TUMBLR |

STOLA

I think this faux fur stola is one of the most cool accessories I found so far this season. It’s so easy to combine with any type of outfit, I love it combined with a dress (see HERE) but also dressed down with a pair of comfy jeans. It’s so easy to slip on that I can also wear it over a leather jacket when the temperature really drops. For now, with the soft fall weather I love the contrast of wearing a faux fur and lacy sandals. Fashion can be so much fun! | Faux Fur Stola H&M | Sweater Iris&Ink | Jeans ONLY Jeans | Heels ZARA | Bag CHANEL | Sunnies H&M | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |TUMBLR |

PARTYDRESSING

When it comes to party dressing or dressing for special occasions I love to shop at Karen Millen. This English glam brand always has it right when it comes to affordable but high quality pieces. From classic LBD’s to showstoppers, they have it all.  Like this dress that immediately caught my eye while browsing through the online boutique. It’s short but combined with the high neckline still demure. The carefully placed inserts gives it a very shaped and figure consistent fit. Teamed with a pair of over knees boots or with black tights and heels, you will not leave the party unseen.   | Dress Karen Millen | Boots ZARA | Clutch ZARA | Sunnies CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |TUMBLR |

DALMATIAN

I believe that somethings are just meant to be. Like this Dalmatian printed coat that I accidentally stumbled upon at the last of the last (read: this-is-so-cheap-please-buy-it-because-we-cant-get-rit-of-it corner)  at Zara just at the end of summer sales. Somehow this lonesome piece immediately caught my eye and at 1/5 of it’s original price and being the right size this was just waiting for me. By the way have you already read the Open Toe season blogpost by The Man Repeller? So true, so hilarious, so genius! . | Coat ZARA | Shirt ZARA | Pants COS | Bag LUELLA | Heels ZARA | Sunnies H&M | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |TUMBLR |

FALL WHITE

Yes these photo’s were taken last weekend, and yes I’m wearing all white and no socks or thights. The weather these days has got us all a bit of fashion schizophrenic  and forces me rework all my summer favorites combined with some new winter scores. Well luckely white also seems to be this winter hottest color and it combines perfectly with black (duhh) so I can only hope this sunny weather will last all winter (wishful thinking I know). | Sweater ZARA | Pants ZARA | Bag CHANEL | Sunnies CHANEL | Heels ZARA | Watch Michael Kors | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |TUMBLR |

PIED-DE-POULE

Besides checks and pinstripes, the classic pied-de-poule is the hottest print in town this season. This classic print so strong it can be used for all types of accessories and garments. I think it also remains it’s popularity because it’s so easy to combine and translates so well into any season and wardrobe. Whether you wear it with jeans for some weekend shopping like I did or all dressed up for a party, anything goes. I love this classic now and forever. . | Jacket ZARA | Sweater J.CREW | Jeans ZARA | Bag Chloe | Heels ZARA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |TUMBLR |

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 |

OTHER STORIES

The last time I visited Paris I steped into a &OtherStories store for the first time. Already being a fan of H&M and COS, &OtherStories is now one of my favorites to. The clothes and accessories they sell are a lot like the minimalistic style from COS, but in another way, more elaborated. Like these pants, on first sight it’s a normal 5 pocket skinny jean, but when you look closer you see the insert at the inner leg. Classic with a twist is just the way I like it, hope there are many more Stories to come. For now the easiest way is to shop online: www.stories.com I also pulled out my cape again. Perfect for this inbetween fall weather and always the one to count on to bring a little glamour into any outfit. | Cape ZARA | Sweater H&M | Pants &OtherStories | Heels ZARA | Bag DIOR saddle bag | Sunnies CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |TUMBLR |

OUT OF THE BLUE

Last Saturday we attended the official opening of a new concept store Out of the Blue. The store is located at the most inspiring area’s of The Netherlands, Strijp S. This former industrial area is slowly being transformed into the perfect place to work, live, shop and meet friends for drinks or dinner. The environment is so different from our little historic city that this was the perfect place to make some outfit photo’s. Although Saturday was a pretty good day concerning the weather, it’s still getting colder every day. To make the adjustment a little bit easy I bought myself another winter coat. And yes, this one is also blue again and I’m already very happy with it. It may be blue also, is so very different from the other one. I really love the 3/4 sleeves, the boyish fit, the hairy wool.  I’m feeling many more blue and black combination are ready to made. . | Jacket H&M | Dress ZARA | Heels ZARA | Clutch ZARA | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |TUMBLR |

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 |

CASHMERE

Last week I bought this gorgeous cashmere sweater online at the outnet.com. Now I’m Always a bit anxious to buy anything this delicate but somehow this time I couldn’t care less. This sweater is so me, not only are blue and yellow my favorite colors as you know, the shape is also  just perfect. I wear this type of sweater all year round and combine them with everything from shorts to jeans to skirts. I also fell for the funny detail of the contrast sleeves, just gives that bit of extra that I always want when buying something not so cheap. For me, this sweater just simply has it all. . | Sweater Iris & Ink | Skirt ZARA | Clutch H&M | Heels ZARA | Sunnies H&M | Ring YSL | . | 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 |

BLUE

Opposites attract, that’s one thing I know for sure, and that’s exactly what I’m loving right now. Pencil skirts combined with sweaters, high heels and boyfriend jeans, sportswear combined with eveningwear and so on. They seem to clash but in fact strengthen each other and that’s exactly what I’m keeping in mind when I get dressed lately. . | Jacket ONLY | Shirt H&M | Skirt ZARA | Heels Alexander Wang | Bag ZARA | Necklace ZARA | . | 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 |

SUNDAY

Yesterday was the most perfect September Sunday. The weather is just amazing these days and it allows me to wear some of my summer favorites for the last time this year. I always love to wear pencil skirts because of their positive effect on a womans figure but they also give me a dressed-up feeling. By wearing them with a sweater they become so much more relaxed and also more fall proof. I hope we keep this weather for many more days to come to I can keep exploring more summer meets winter combinations. | Sweater H&M | Skirt Warehouse | Heels ZARA | Bag Vintage | Necklace Pieces | . | 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 |

DRAW THE LINE

Stripes tops are one thing I can never have to much of. I especially love this one from Asos. For it’s price the fabric and cut are actually really good. This one is  also a bit more fancy that the cotton ones I always stack up. Just to good to pas by as I may say myself but I think this is were I have to draw the line.

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. […]

RUE DE PARIS

I’m a bit behind on my blog post lately but there’s just to much to share these days. Already 2 weeks ago I left for Paris, this time not for my pleasure only but mainly to support my boyfriend who was visiting the Maison & Objet just outsite Paris. So Friday afternoon we finally arrived in the city of love, after our favorite waste of time, strolling arround the city and hanging out a several cafe’s, our first day already came to an end.  The next day my boyfriend headed for the fair very early and left me all along in the city. My first time ever alone in Paris, so what was I gonna do?? Shop off course!! All day I pretended to be a parisienne by traveling on the metro alone, eating fresh baked croissants, shopping at Rue Saint Honoré and so on. Now I don’t have to tell you that I had the best of time and off course I scored some nice new stuff along the way. The only thing I don’t recommend is entering the Chanel Maquillage store alone and getting your make-up done by a Chanel proffessionel. I’m no pussy when it comes to […]

TOUCH OF YELLOW

After the most amazing summer holiday destination, I was back in my hometown for just a few days, before leaving for Paris again. I know, life is rough sometimes. I decided to make the most out of my slightly tanned skin (sadly I’m not very good at sunbathing) by wearing lost of black and these amazing yellow heels I bought at Zara. They remind me of a pair of Manolo Blahnik that are on my wishlist forever but that I also find a bit to exspencive for now (remeber the ones that Carrie wears on her wedding in SATC the movie?? Right, the blue ones). And now that my wishlist is only getting longer instead of shorter I doubt they will ever be mine. But these Zara ones will do just fine for me, for now, and I’ll just keep on dreaming of all the things on my wishlist.     | Jacket H&M | Top ASOS | Short ZARA | Heels ZARA | Bag Prada | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

LONG NIGHTS

My last outfit photo’s from Santorini, crazy how times flies when you’re having fun. Anyway, I always love to wear maxi dresses when I’m on a summer holiday. They are perfect for long summer nights because they are so easy to wear. Dressed up or dressed down, either way you look instant glamorous. This one was designed by Kate Moss for Topshop a few years back and has been my favorite maxi ever since. Proving once again that stripes are never out of style.   | Dress TOPSHOP | Heels ZARA | Clutch H&M | Bracelet H&M | Ring YSL | Sunnies CHANEL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

SUNSET

Ever since I bought this cute little white top I have been wanted to wear it but somehow it never felt right and the perfect occasion never accured. Somehow on vacation I always feel a bit more secure and less restricted then normal and so I finally dared to wear the cropped top. Off course I keep it classy by combining it with a pencil skirt and some classic slingbacks. I love how these opposites attract and at the same time strengthen one another. | Top H&M | Skirt ZARA | Slingbacks Dolce&Gabbana | Sunnies CHANEL | Jewelry all H&M | Ring YSL arty oval |

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 |

JUMP

I’m a lucky girl, after spending a full week in Santorini (stay tuned for more beautiful pictures) I’m spending this weekend in my beloved Paris. Again I hear you think, yes again. This time me and my boy are visiting the Maison et Objet and off course do a little shopping and city exploring.  Any reason to visit Paris is a good one don’t you think. I guess that’s also part of why I love this jumpsuit so much, the Eiffel tower on it represents this city in a nutshell and always reminds me of all the good memories I have of it. It’s also very easy and comfortable to wear, summer or winter, what ever the occasion, it fits me like a glove. Just like Paris.   | Jumpsuit ASOS | Heels Dolce&Gabbana | Clutch H&M | Sunnies H&M | Watch Marc by Marc Jacobs | Bracelet Speechless | Ring YSL | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

THE SHIRTDRESS

When I think of a white shirt, I think of long summer days and the ideal dress to wear from day till night. This dress doesn’t need much, a little belt and heels are enough to make it suitable for  long summer nights while a pair of slippers make it more suitable for hot summer days. I also love to wear it as a beach cover up, to get some poolbar refreshments or from the beach to the hotel. Even when my skin got to much sun this piece comes in very handy and keeps my skin stylishly protected. In short, the perfect dress for any sunny holiday.   | Shirt dress TOPSHOP | Heels MIU MIU | Belt Vintage | Sunnies Chanel | . | 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 |

SO PINK

One of the best parts of blogging for me is that it’s challenges me to be creative in many ways. I need to be creative with my own wardrobe but also in my own city. Not born and raised in this city makes me unaware of of the beautiful places it holds and like exploring my own closet for new outfits to wear, I also explore my city for new places to shoot. After a week of doing absolutely nothing  I’m full of creativity again. I also rediscovered this pink skirt, I have it for many years now but somehow I bought it one size to big, so every time I try it on I take it right of. Today I decided to try it again only to wear it with a belt instead,  I also added a simple blouse and barely there heels. Sometimes it can be so simple, you have to take the time to see it.   | Shirt H&M | Skirt ZARA | Heels Alexander Wang | Clutch Mango | Bracelets Mango, H&M | Ring YSL | Sunnies H&M | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |

BLUE IN ONE

At last my summer holiday has begun, almost 3 weeks of relaxing and doing exactly what I want. To top it of we are also spending a week in Santorini, Greence and a few days in my beloved Paris. The best way to reload my battery and start the new season freshly. This jumpsuit has been in my closet for 3 years now and still I love to wear it every now and then. Mostly because it’s so comfortable but also because it’s so easy to dress up or down. This time I’m wearing it with heels and a statement necklace, my favorite way of dressing up. | Jumpsuit ZARA | Heels ZARA | Necklace H&M | Clutch ZARA | Sunnies CHANEL | Ring YSL | Watch Michael Kors | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST | TUMBLR |
