Zara obsession is real

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?

Red Heels All The Way

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!

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?
