STRIPES AND LEOPARD

STRIPES AND LEOPARD
I remember this day as a warm Spring day, and I remember thinking that it should be warmer. "The better times are coming"-type of thing. Little did I know that the weather would get only worse. To tell you the truth, before living in Spain, I had a rule of never complaining about the weather. Yes, the weather is unpredictable in the Netherlands. Yes, the weather is shitty most of the times. But complaining brings a lot of negativity, and I try to stick to the positivity(or more what my boyfriend strives for).

However, after Spain the only thing I can think about is the sunshine, the warmth and my happy mood. It's amazing how such matters can change a person, and throw its beliefs out of the window like they never existed.

MRS. QUEEN

Mrs. Queen Sweatshirt
On April 27th the Netherlands celebrated Kingsday, and we partied along. It's a tradition to wear orange during this holiday. The colour orange is still the national colour of our Kingdom. You can be for or against this tradition, but as for me, I'm always in for a party.

I always have an orange dress for this day, which I also wear during the World Cup. But unfortunately, it was stored up away, and I found myself without an outfit. Until the day before the holiday. my boyfriend and I were strolling in the city when this sweatshirt got my attention. The funny thing is that they had the male version as well. You can find all the pictures on my Instagram.

At first I was planning to keep this item away until the next year, before I realised that it doesn't look bad at all on the daily basis.

MUSTARD OR KETCHUP?

MUSTARD YELLOW BLOUSE
You don't want to know what my friend and I have been through to shoot this blog post. In order to keep up with my blog in between study, work and social life there are just a few possibilities left. Which cannot be canceled even if something(i.e. minor wind storm) tries to interrupt my plans. I can only be thankful for my friends and all people around me who are willing to cope up with me and my plans.
After an half hour of looking for a proper venue we finally found a kind of shelter, which wasn't in a slightest way a protection from the wind and the rain.
The funny thing of this story is that right after we were done shooting the sky cleared up and the sun begun to shine. So the only question that rests, is: Do you prefer mustard or ketchup?

A LOOK THAT WORKS

OFFICE WEAR
The first thought that crosses my mind in the morning is:"What should I have for breakfast?" The second thought that follows, is:"What should I wear?"
I can stand still in front of my closet for a good thirty minutes, with dancing intervals, without any satisfying result. While those morning minutes are sometimes the most precious. The place I work at has an informal dressing code what more or less means wear whatever you like, which makes picking an outfit a little easier.

However not everybody in the working field has the same privilege of a free dressing code. I can imagine that a few have a difficulty of finding a modern, hip and work-appropriate look.
I always try to wear something comfortable if I have to work long hours. This is what is so appealing about these leggings. Due to their harsher material they have a better overall appearance, but remain comfy. The rest does a longer blouse, the sophisticated blazer and a pair of boots.
Have a nice week!

A TOUCH OF RED

RED SWEATER
I'm back in Amsterdam! I can't wait to explore my new neighbourhood, and make tons of pictures. I'm trying to save for a new camera, but all the expanses on clothes make it very hard. Sounds familiar, I guess.
With the beginning of March I thought for a second that spring would arrive. However Dutch weather thought differently. Gladly, we've been granted a very sunny, but cold Sunday.
I wanted to wear this top for such a long time. Love this kind of tops. Very thin, and soft, and with the oversized sleeves. A new trend for A/W 2015, so now you know. ;)

And I'm laughing in pictures! What do you think about that?!

GREY MATTER

With the Spring around the corner I had to be quick to rock the last winter outfits. This time I've chosen an oversized knit sweater, the skinny dark grey jeans and a light grey(and sometimes light lilac) coat. Adding to that my red Gucci disco bag and red lips. It makes just a perfect Saturday look. Comfortable, yet at the same time sophisticated.

Lately, I wear my hair tucked into a coat or a sweater. I'm contemplating of getting a haircut, and I might getting used to the idea. What are your ideas on that? To cut or not to cut? It's almost weekend, let's celebrate!
