Oh my gosh, the weather here in the Netherlands is not something I’m loving. It has been snowing for a few days now and believe me, I HATE the snow and cold temperature. But today was a fun day! Not only because the snow is melting but I went to Rotterdam to have lunch with my parents @ Bertmans (the french toast is to die for BTW) and to get some stuff at De Bijenkorf.
I went for a casual outfit today. As it is still freezing, I knew for sure I wanted to wear a cosy sweater. As my closet is stuffed with sweaters and knitwear, it sure was a tough decision to make ;). I chose this vibrant red sweater from NA-KD with wide sleeves. I’m a sucker for wide sleeves as I think it gives a simple sweater something extra. What I love even more about these kind of sleeves, is that it looks really cute underneath a jacket. I know, it’s a really small detail but that’s what I love! The jacket I combined with this look is a grey, checkered coat. I love the pattern as you might already know and I am really into long jackets. I combined these items with a simple blue jeans and my biker boots from Zara with the pearls. To top it all off, I wore my Gucci Marmont as a crossbody. Just because this is much easier while taking care of a dog in a busy city haha. Yes, I brought my puppy with me to the city centre. It was quite the hassle but she’s so sweet and calm that you literally wouldn’t even notice her. Once again though, it seems as if my dogs take away my shine each time they pose with me. Can’t blame them though, as they are my favorite things on this freaking earth… Oh I now just realize I have a serious Zara obsession. Imma go work on that, right away.
Would you wear this outfit? And do you share a Zara obsession with me?

It’s almost that time of the year again! Christmas. I absolutely love XMAS. Everything about it makes me happy. The Christmas trees, the lights, presents and lovely family dinners. Our family makes a pretty big deal out of it, which I love. So for this wishlist, it’s all about XMAS presents.
I’ve been wanting this Saint Laurent shirt, #6, for quite some time now. So I thought this was the best option for a Christmas present. I’ve given my parents many ‘subtle’ hints so hopefully, they got the message ;). #3 is a winner as well. Honestly, you can never go wrong with a Self Portrait dress. I want this dress for our Christmas dinner, it would be absolutely perfect. A more casual present would be #2. This simple white blouse from & Other Stories is so classy yet very basic. This is a staple I still need in my wardrobe. Last week, I was scrolling through De Bijenkorf gift guide (my guilty pleasure for sure) and came across this Gucci bracelet, #4. I love this design, simplistic but with a touch of Gucci. You can never go wrong with that right? Another cute item I saw at De Bijenkorf, are the red heels from Jimmy Choo, #1. I cannot get enough of the design. The branded bows at the front are to die for, if you ask me. #5 is a bit extreme but oh my, I’ve want a Cartier ring ever since I found out what Cartier was. I don’t think my parents are that crazy to give this as a XMAS present, but I’m having high hopes for my 21st birthday.
Which item would you like to have for Christmas? Let me know!
- Jimmy Choo Tegan 100 Pump
- & Other Stories Oversized Button Up Shirt
- Self Portrait A-Line Dress

Statement Red Heels MK
Street Style Outfit Red Heels Michael Kors
Hi you guys! It’s been some time but I’m back! I’ve been super busy with school, work and most of all, puppy duty. We’ve got Charlie, my new pup, for one week now and oh my, it’s been chaos in the house. Having 2 dogs literally gives me life but it also sucks the life out of you haha. But, it’s all for a good cause right! Today I went to consultancy at school and I felt like wearing my flashy red boots. So here’s how I combined these red ankle boots.
These boots are from last year’s Fall collection of Michael Kors, and honestly, I haven’t worn them until recently. But now I love them so much. I love a good statement piece. As I don’t wear that much color, I like to incorporate it into the outfit one way or the other. Thus, with this outfit, I like to give my shoes the center of attention. The heels are made of suede and the red color is extremely vibrant. The heels underneath these ankle booth are doable. I’m already quite long so I try to keep my heels around 5 centimeters. As for the styling, I am addicted to the combo of the ankle boots with this Levi Wedgie Fitted Jeans. As they are rather loose and high cut, it looks casual yet trendy. I matched this with a Nikkie top, one of my faves. However, I haven’t bought anything from Nikkie in a while as the brand’s style doesn’t quite match with my personal style anymore. Unfortunately, as in the beginning, I was a huge fan! Then, to top it off, I wore my Ted Baker coat with it. This coat was quite the investment but honestly, I wear it all the time. You can wear it with basically any outfit you’d like. Thus, the ROI (trying to bring some economics in it as well, you’re welcome) is huuuge! 😉
Do you love these boots as much as I do? Or aren’t you a big fan of statement pieces? Let me know in the comments!

With this new concept, I’d like to show you the must haves that are certainly on my wishlist! This week, we’re talking bags. Personally, bags are my absolute fave accessory! I’d like to wear a more simple outfit so that my bag truly gets all the attention.
My favorite of this collection, definitely is #3. This YSL bag is so classy yet it does have something edgy. It has been on my wishlist for quite some time now. As for #5, I must honestly say that Michael Kors is not really my brand anymore (it used to be my all-time favorite). But this bag is classy and it does not scream MK, which I obviously love. The Marc Jacobs mini bag, #1, is such a cutie. I think it’ll really take your outfit to the next level. I especially love the strap! Oh my, I love #2. The only downside of this bag is that it’s perfect for photos but not so much for daily usage. #6 is one of my absolute Gucci must haves. The Sylvie bag is classy and again, does not scream the brand’s name all over the bag. I like that a lot. And lastly, #4 is perfect for going to festivals or parties, as it’s super easy to wear and I love the combination of a bum bag (worn as a crossbody) with a colorful turtleneck.
Which one is on top of your wishlist?

Streetstyle in Switzerland
This week I went on a short trip to Switzerland with the fam (dog included as you can see). When I pack my suitcase, I always think of outfits that will look cute for possible shoots. I know, I have a problem but oh well. I packed something for basically every activity. But when we were going to hike I suddenly remembered that I didn’t bring sportswear. So, I took it upon myself and dressed to impress all the hikers ;). It was pretty cold, so I wore a turtleneck sweater and a jacket. Soon I realized that this was way too warm as I was dying while climbing the steep mountain paths. Disclaimer, I am not the most sporty person out there. But hey, everyone has their strengths and weaknesses. So, I looked pretty ridiculous between all those sporty people but what can I do about it right. And in the end, it paid off because the mountain was absolutely gorgeous! We made a ton of pictures already but when we made it to the lake, we were all in our element. We were making photos of the landscape (and ourselves) the whole time. It was so pretty that I cannot not share these with you!
On to the outfit! As I mentioned before, I was thinking that it was really cold, so I wore a warm sweater with a turtleneck. The green color of this sweater is to die for, and it was a coincidence that it matched perfectly with the colors of nature. I wore these ripped jeans with my Gucci Marmont belt. Believe me, this Gucci belt has been the best purchase ever. It elevates every outfit and it is functional as well. I absolutely love it and can’t live without it anymore! These shoes are the best ones ever. I designed them myself two years ago and they match perfectly with my style. The jacket brings this outfit together I think. I love long jackets with this kind of design and I like the transition into a leopard print at the bottom. It’s subtle yet it gives this jacket some extra spark. The inside of Ted Baker jackets is something out of this world, it’s amazing! It’s a shame however that you cannot really see it. I matched this outfit with my Karl Lagerfeld bag, but my dog Brody is literally the best accessory you can have, but he does take the spotlight away from me but that’s fine. He’s such a pretty model.
What do you love more? The outfit or the dog?
