What Other Bloggers Wear - April



OMG, once again a month has gone by. Too. Fast. :(
It was a fun month though: celebrated my birthday, finished the third block of uni and enjoyed many moments in the sun! Oh, and it wasn't so bad fashionwise either ;) Neither were other blogs, as you can see in this post!

Which one is your favourite? x

With My Lipstick On

25aprilZARA leather jacket, H&M top, BERSHKA jeans, H&M sneakers, SHE HAS A GUN necklace,
CASIO watch, JILL SANDER glasses, MAC lipstick (All Fired Up) 

These sneakers just ask for a casual/sporty look! I decided to dress it up with my leather jacket, gold jewellery and a pink lippie. You like ?

Having quite the busy week, but it's oh-so-fun for the most part. I'm going to Antwerp on Thursday by the way so definitely heading to Forever 21 to snatch up some jewellery and maybe another maxi skirt :) I'll keep you updated!

Have a great day ! x

I want to congratulate Claudia from beautybehindclouds.blogspot.nl ! :) Yaaay, she won my very first giveaway !! Fun fact is that she celebrated her birthday a week after mine, so it's sort of a belated birthday gift for her too :) I can't wait to see how she combines the necklace and I'm sure the lipstick will look great on her. Definitely check out her blog !

Claudia - keep an eye out on your inbox :)

Thank you all who entered this giveaway, and I hope you will have a great week!

Lots of love xx 

Feeling Festive

festival1DIY top, VINTAGE shorts & belt, H&M shoes, PRIMARK bag 

I'm not going to as many festivals as I would've liked to this year, simply due to the fact that I'm going to New York & Canada and that costs a lot of money! (hey, no complains ;)
However, this doesn't mean I cannot compile festival-worthy outfits & OMG, I love this one! These shorts are 'new', as in I bought them at the thriftstore two days ago. I also bought two other shorts but more on that later !

I just love the casualness of this outfit and I can definitely see myself wearing this, even if it's just for a city stroll instead of enjoying bands. Oh and by the way, I made this shirt myself! I'm such a fangirl haha, gotta love the Arctic Monkeys eh :)

An Inch Up

Hey hey! Remember this post about the flatform ? Well, I promised you guys that I'd order these beauties from H&M very very soon, and soon is NOW! :) OMG, I'm so happy with them! It's still so strange to me that I'm actually wearing sneakers, but I'm totally in love with them and I can't believe the comfort haha. You'll see them in another post tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled ;)
If you like them as much as I do: you can order them here.

Have a great weekend ! x

With My Head In The Clouds

17april1
LAUNDRY INDUSTRY jacket (vintage), VINTAGE jumper, TOPSHOP jeans, NEW LOOK boots, 
RAY-BAN sunglasses, CASIO watch 

Whoop whoop, spring is really happening right now and I'm so excited to pair my black clothing with a little bit more colour! I'm wearing my long jacket with the vintage jumper from the IJhallen and a lightwashed jeans. I hardly ever wear this pair any more because of its low waist: high-waisted jeans fit my figure way better. However, I like it in this combo very much because these jeans are just a tad bit oversized, not so much a boyfriend jeans but sort of. (I'm so clear, I know) You like?

On a more personal note: I can't believe how hectic but fun my life is sometimes. Seriously, days go by in the blink of an eye. I do have to say that whereas in the past this would have made me super stressed out, currently I'm in a much better state of mind. I have a lot of fun things going on and happening and I'm getting better at enjoying those in the moment, rather than always looking ahead and planning. The control freak in me is relaxing a little and I like that ! I still can't wait to see what the future has in store for me though ! ;)

How are you guys? I hope you have a great day ! x

Messing With My Head

hairbob1

Eek, sometimes my own ideas freak me out a little bit! When I was flipping through pictures of Coachella, I stumbled upon the picture above of Kylie Jenner, with the most perfect messy hair I have ever seen. It made me think about the idea of having a messy bob myself.

Oh lord, I know. Me, the one who wears her hair up in a bun most of the time because her hair is untamable... Would cutting it be a sensible option? Nah. Fun? YES ! I wouldn't cut it very short, just shoulder length or something. But still, it'd be quite a big step for me...

For now, I just went and looked up some inspiration. What do you think ?

The Snake Skin

16april5
VINTAGE blouse, PRIMARK jeans, NEW LOOK boots, MARC BY MARC JACOBS watch 

Remember this beauty which I bought at the IJhallen from Nanne? I just love the colours of this blouse and how it doesn't need much more than some black jeans and boots. I never owned something animal-printed before, so it's a nice change (even though the print is super subtle, it's quite daring for me haha)!

It's time for me to start my last block of this year of uni! I can't believe how fast this year has gone by, makes me sad too.. my whole uni-life goes by so quickly, but I'm enjoying it so much ! Wish it could last forever haha !

Happy Easter ! x

Broke Doesn't Mean Boring

I'm really excited to share this post with you guys! Being a money-lacking but fashion-addicted student, I always look for trendy clothing to amp up my wardrobe without breaking the bank. Today I would like to show you three looks which are all very cheapy-ass: they are all under 50 euros!! Now let's bring in these style steals...


  • look1

ASOS top, H&M trousers, BOOHOO sneakers

A chique outfit with a little edge because of the platform sneakers and the colour of the crop top :) I love the idea of a smart pant with some more casual accessories. I would finish this look with a couple of dangly silver bracelets and a black leather jacket for going outside. That crop top will really pop !  

look2

BOOHOO jumper, MONKI shorts, H&M hat, H&M rings

I love how cute this outfit is! I wanted to complement the dipdye shorts so I put it together with a white jumper. I never wear hats like these but one of my friends does (you know who you are!) and she always looks so cute, so I thought I'd give it a try with this look! This outfit would be perfect with some black (see-through) tights and a red lippie :)

look3

How awesome is this maxi dress? I wanted to keep the look sleek and simple, so I decided to go with all-silver accessories, which also complement the great shoes. I think this outfit would be great with a big high bun (try one of those donuts!) and a tad bit heavy makeup. Edgy aaaaaall the way :)

Which one is your favourite ? xx

The Details

15april1 15april4

Life of a fashionblogger isn't always easy and I experienced that yesterday. My-oh-my, the camera just wasn't having the best day haha. Anyways, I ended up with these detail-shots which I actually really like. I'm wearing my new see-through blouse which I got at the IJhallen for a couple of euros. The belt complement my glasses, but I guess you have to imagine that for yourself as there wasn't a decent picture with my head in the frame haha.

Today I'm going to meet up with one of my friends and we're going to shoot some pictures in the city, sooo fun! After that two of my friends from work are going to take me out to dinner for my birthday; it's a surprise where we're going so I'm super curious :) I hope you have a great day as well ! x

P.S. Enter my giveaway if you haven't! I'm giving away two of my favourites, what's not to like?  

Hot Town - But Looking So Pretty

propost8

As you know I'm going to New York in the summer and everybody who is a little familiar with New York summers know they can be HOT. However I do want to see more than just the air-conditioning system in my hotel room, so now's the time to start outfit planning. I want to wear something that's comfortable, breathable but also fashionable! ;)

I think this look combines all of the above. How awesome are these sneakers ? Even though they blend in perfectly with the Rocky Mountains I'll visit after New York, with the blouse and sunnies the shoes are perfectly city appropriate! I can already see myself trotting around in them :)
If you live in the Netherlands, you can buy these beauties here, with a discount! I'm really starting to get into sneakers, especially ones with a thicker sole like Vans :) About time I invest in some !

Did you ever spend a summer in a (hot) city? Any tips on outfits and essentials?  

P.S. I'm giving away two of my favourites at the moment!

If Not Now, When ?

Yesterday I posted the quote in the title above on Instagram. During my research for my trip to New York and Canada I rediscovered Pinterest and I thought this quote was quite relevant to my life right now. I mean, I just turned twenty years old and it feels like my life is currently holding its breath, waiting for that one day in August (when I will hop on a plane) to exhale and start again. However, that's just not how it works, is it? I want to go on my trip so bad that I sometimes seem to forget the here and now, and how fun that can be!

I found something else on Pinterest which joins in on this. It was this chalkboard which you can write your future goals on - short and long term. I thought it'd be fun to share this with you on the web, so here we go :)

Today I Will... celebrate my dog's birthday haha. She turned four today! I still think it's a shame we're not born on the same day, as she is my full-time twinsie anyways ;)

This Week I Will... finally read all of the March issues of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar I didn't get round to. I can't wait to be inspired by all the spring and summer fashion, I'm still putting together the best outfits for the summer in NY and Canada (more on that later).

This Month I Will... be very busy! I'm starting a course on journalism next week (and another one on novels and films) which will be very demanding. On top of that I'm working some extra days and of course I will need to plan most of my trip ! All very fun though, so no complains thus far :)

This Year I Will... hopefully learn a lot about myself. I'm not just going to live on my own, I'm going to do that across the ocean. Every time I talk about it with family or a friend, it gets a little less surreal. I just can't wait to see what it all will bring me !

Next Year I Will... return to the Netherlands and go live on my own here, in my beloved city of Utrecht :) I'm really excited about that too. I'm currently still living with my parents because I'm saving up for Canada and while I love it here (I seriously have nothing to complain haha), I'm ready to fully live that student life ! :)

What are your short and long term goals? Share them below or on your own blog !
Hope you have a great day ! x

Gather All Hipsters

10april1
VINTAGE jumper, PRIMARK jeans, BOOHOO loafers, RIMMEL lipstick 

Woah I'm turning 20 tomorrow... time sure flies !! I had a pre-bday bash on Tuesday which was so much fun and I'm going to go to another party tonight. Not too much drinking though, I still have to have an appetite for lots of cake tomorrow ! ;) For now I'm going to give you a little spoiler: expect a VERY FUN post tomorrow on the blog, keep your eyes open ! 

On to the outfit. Yes, I felt like such a hipster wearing this and YES, I loved every minute of it! I have such a crush on this jumper. I know it may be a little too vintage-y for some people but I think it's a really fun addition to my otherwise so clean and preppy wardrobe. What do you think of this outfit? :)
Talk to you tomorrow, ON MY BDAY! *lets out a little shriek*
