Matching nature’s colors

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?

Bringing my A-Game in Curacao

Is there anyone else who scrolls through their photos when they cannot sleep at night? Cause I’m guilty! Oops. So, when I was recently scrolling through all my memories, I found these photos taken back in Curacao this year. This dress was an item that I wanted the minute I laid eyes on it. However, there were some complications because when I wanted to buy it, the dress was already damaged. I later found out that this was the result of the fabric. This dress is from Zara’s TRF collection, the somewhat eco-friendly line so to say. It rips super easily so you should be careful when putting it on but oh well, you gotta do what you gotta do right. When I eventually ordered it online, it was delivered just in time for my vacay!

This dress is just breathtaking. I love the red color in combination with the fabric. The design is furthermore very flattering and cute. I love the ribbon at the waist! I knew I wanted to make some photos on the ‘Pontjesbrug‘ in Curacao as I already went there a few times before and the place is amazing for photoshoots! So this dress was just the perfect fit! I wore these boots, also from Zara, underneath and to be quite honest, nobody liked this combination. But I liked it so I basically couldn’t care less. I think the combo is cute and simple. These sock-like boots are super easy heels to walk on (not that simple on the bridge though) and trendy at the same time. Thinking about it, this blog is pretty much a dedication to Zara. But honestly, who doesn’t love Zara?

What do you think of the combo, the dress with those boots?

The Karl Lagerfeld K/Holiday Shoulder Bag

Karl Lagerfeld K/Holiday Street StyleKarl Lagerfeld is one of the most celebrated designers of the 21st century. 

Karl Lagerfeld is a fashion icon that I think everyone knows or surely has heard off. He’s known for his cutting-edge and somewhat different approach to fashion. What I admire most about him, is the fact that next to his own signature brand, he is also the creative director of Chanel and Fendi. Like how is that even humanly possible right? Many fashion gurus therefore see him as one of the most celebrated designers of the 21st century. Karl Lagerfeld, the signature brand, its aesthetic combines timeless classics with a modern, fun (somewhat cheeky) twist. What I love about this brand is that the ready-to-wear collections are rather affordable. For the relatively low price points, you’re getting perfect quality.

The K/Klassik shoulder bag is one of the most popular bags of the fashion house. This design is sold out quite a lot, but that’s simply because the bag is so functional yet super stylish! The silhouette of this bag perfectly combines style and function. I personally feel like every woman should own at least one Karl Lagerfeld bag!

Karl Lagerfeld K/Holiday Shoulder Bag

The K/Klassik shoulder bag comes in many designs. There are always the leather, more basic designs and then there are the limited editions that are featured once in a while. My bag is a limited edition, namely the Holiday Shoulder Bag. I wouldn’t necessarily buy the basic K/Klassik, but the boldly reimagined design of my bag is something I simply cannot resist! The KARL signature in stitched shearling was an absolute deal breaker. How can you not love that detail? I think it gives something extra to the design for sure!

This beauty features a foldover front flap, a top handle and a detachable leather strap. This offers versatility as you can wear this bag in multiple ways. Wear it as a crossbody, or simply wear it over your shoulder when you’re on the go. But you can also detach the strap and wear the bag by holding the top handle. This will create a more sophisticated and chicer look. This makes the bag perfect for day and night activities. The bag is furthermore super practical, as mentioned before. This is one of the largest crossbodies I own, you can truly put a lot in it! The interior furthermore features a slot pocket, a front panel pocket and on the back, there is a pocket as well. Super handy right!

Would you go for the K/Klassik or would you rather prefer a limited edition?

Colorful Karl

I wore this outfit when I had a school day and on our way to school, we stumbled upon this amazing wall in the ‘Witte de Withstraat’. This wall obviously screams take a picture in front of me, right? So, we did. My outfit matched pretty well with the background as this was really colorful and my outfit was quite lacking some color. So it couldn’t be any more perfect! Right now you might be thinking, does this girl own anything colorful? Believe me, I do! Only not that much ;). It’s still a work in progress as I had a severe addiction to black clothing. But I enjoy wearing colorful items more and more.

I really love checked prints so this blazer is definitely one of my favorite items ever! You can wear it over basically any outfit and it gives that extra spark instantly. For this outfit, I combined the blazer with a simple black t-shirt and some light-washed jeans. I think that by combining the blazer with these items, the blazer stands out more. And that’s exactly what I want! The boots are amazing in my opinion. I usually don’t like biker boots because of their rough appearance but thanks to the pearls I find these boots way more feminine, which I love! And BTW, they fit like a glove… I can walk hours on these boots. I was feeling like wearing my Karl Lagerfeld bag today. I’ve had this bag for more than two years now, but I never get bored of this cutie. It matches super easily with outfits and I can put a lot in it as well!

What do you think of this outfit? Would you wear it?

  • Blazer from Zara
  • Top from Tommy Hilfiger

The Saint Laurent Sunset Bag

Saint Laurent Large Sunset Bag

Fashion comes and goes, but style is eternal’ – Yves Saint Laurent 

Yves Saint Laurent is a brand that I’ve liked for so many years now! I love what the brand stands for and the founders of the fashion house, Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé are super fascinating. I’ve read many books about the fashion house and its founders and once you’ve done this, you are intrigued, believe me! Hedi Slimane, the previous creative director, is just as fascinating but unfortunately, he left YSL in 2016. The clothing of course is stunning, but the bags especially are amazing! Saint Laurent bags to me, are all about being modern and chic at the same time. There are many gorgeous items designed by YSL but one of my all-time favorites definitely is the Sunset bag!

The Sunset bag can be worn with a casual outfit but you can easily wear it with a fancy outfit as well. This bag is extremely sophisticated and simple. The only details are the interlocking YSL initials on the flap of the bag and a key ring with Saint Laurent on it. I normally prefer golden details but for this bag, I like the silver details better. This came as quite a surprise to me, but the silver combined with the black leather and the shape of this beauty, is just breathtaking! The leather shoulder strap gives this bag the finishing touch. The chain gives this bag a somewhat rough appearance which goes so well with it! I simply cannot get enough of this bag.

Saint Laurent Large Sunset Bag

The size of this bag is perfect. It is small enough to wear as a crossbody, but it is certainly big enough to wear as an everyday bag. You can easily put all your essentials in it! The inside of the bag features suede lining, which gives an extra luxurious feel to the bag. The design has a gusseted slot pocket next to the interior slot pocket. There is another slot pocket on the bag as well, so there truly is lots of space!

The Sunset bag furthermore is a perfect example of a bag that can be worn with any outfit. Do you want to combine this beauty with jeans and a lovely sweater? This bag will elevate your outfit to the next level! Is your style more sophisticated and do you often wear a skirt with a blouse? This bag will match perfectly with the rest of the outfit. As Yves Saint Laurent once said: ‘Fashion comes and goes, but style is eternal’. This is what I love about this bag… There are so many ways you can style this gorgeous bag. There truly are endless options!

The Saint Laurent Sunset bag is styled with a beautiful Self-Portrait dress and Saint Laurent heels to perfectly match the aesthetics of YSL. What do you think of this outfit?
