Chelsea, chelsea

Denim shirt, black leathersP1130527Fall is most definitely my favorite season, and I won’t lie that ankle boots have a major part of that obsession! Along with the glowing leaves and crisp fall breeze, there’s nothing better than slipping a cute pair of ankle booties on your feet to make you feel on top of the world! And, let’s be honest, the ankle height just feels more relaxed and comfortable. Never mind that booties take up way less room in your closet too. Wait. Do you know what that means? You can buy more than just one pair this fall – especially since ankle boots come in so many styles, shapes, colors, heel heights, and price points. I would say the chelsea boot, also known as the dealer boot, initially created for horse riding, should be a staple in every woman’s closet for fall en ce moment. Chelsea boots are tight-fitting, ankle-high shoes which first appeared in Victorian times and were originally called paddock or jodhpur boots. Their most distinguishable feature still is the elastic on the side that allowed you to effortlessly pull them on and off with the heel tab at the back. In today’s look I’m wearing my favorite pair of chelsea’s teamed with a lightly washed denim shirt, some faux leather shorts and blackish tights. So simple, yet so elegant (more…)

Inspiration: patchwork denim

P1130704 P1130700

Patchwork denim it is for today. When it comes to effortless style, I like to think it boils down to having a good set of genes jeans. This autumn and winter, that means adopting the patchwork denim trend. With huge fashion houses already churning out quilt-like pants, I’m yearning to step into a pieced-together pair even more. You, too? The day before yesterday I’ve patched things up myself, purchasing a beautiful skinny jeans from The Sting for their #‎indenimwetrust‬ campaign. Before I’m shooting a look with this patchwork baby and telling you guys more about this campaign, I wanted to share some inspiration with you today. So sit back, relax and be inspired (annnnd.. click on your fave below to shop online ♥ )

Check and Yellow

Check & Yellow

Tartan pleats, statement plaid and cool-kid checks are still on the agenda for A/W 2014. Call it whatever you please, just make sure you invest in it this season (and upcoming S/S season, yes, I’ve checked the catwalks for you guys). Checks are an effortless yet a never failing classic print, add them to your look for an easy update and grunge-inspired look Gwen Stefani would be proud of! I thought it’ll be fun to show you guys how to style a check print the eye-catching way. I teamed my jacket with my beloved yellowish cigarette Zara trousers which I’ve got in Portugal last June. Remember? Yeah, I bet you remember this look.. Anyway, to complete my ensemble, I went for some open-toe heels I’ve quite recently shopped at Primark. It’s honestly not my favorite store, but I do like to buy some trending items such as these shoes there every season

Puffed sleeves

_MG_5092 _MG_5111

Hi there my cuties! For those of you who’ve been paying attention since the start of my blog and are familiar with my style, know I’m very much into subtle sexiness. I think today’s simple but very interesting dress shows you exactly what I mean. No open backs, no see-through parts, no flashing cleavage, just a little blackish dress with puffed sleeves worn with elegance. It’s the perfect piece for a night out, an exciting dinner with your boy, or another fun thing that’ll for sure be remembered. Is it weekend yet? (more…)

Horse power

P1120663Horse fashion

Though I love all animals, horses have a special place in my heart. Not that I’m that much of a horse riding genius, a horse expert or whatsoever, I just love their beautiful, graceful and extremely elegant appearance. Especially those in the wild.

What’s your favorite animal and for what reason?

Back to today’s look. Have you noticed I’m wearing a PRINT? Have you? Yes, I know! Applause for me, I’m not wearing heavily printed items that often. But hej, it’s a pretty elegant horse print, so I’m making an exception. Besides that, I really like the silk-a-like material of this blouse, it’s suits your body [ I like to keep these statements general you know ] so sexy, so smooth. Due to the lovely light brownish color of the horses, I went for some classy faux suede pumps from Invito. And of course a gold wallet, because hej, you know I love gold as much as I love you ;)

Happy Friday! Weekend is around the corner, hell yeah!

I always think it is interesting to find out what fragrances others are wearing. If you feel like sharing your favorites, feel free to use the comments section below (more…)

Blue denim, black leather

Denim jacket, black leather shortsHi lovely readers, how are you on this beautiful Wednesday morning? ♡ Denim jackets, oh, denim jackets, they’ve always been my thing! I wouldn’t mind walking ’round in denim jackets all day every day. Especially when I found myself a jacket like this one, which isn’t that much of a simple one you see. Look at the detailing, the fit, the print, the vintage feel; oh yeah, this is my favorite denim jacket of all times (more…)

This season’s colors

P1130366P1130413

I LOVE this season’s colors, especially one of them.. Bordeaux, ruby, burgundy, call it what you want, but I’m in love I’m hooked on this color! I’ve seen it on the runway in a lot of collections, and now fall fashion is finally in stores I’ve seen quite a few affordable pieces as well! I love combining it with neutral tones and blacks, but I think it also looks great with dark blue or dark green. And can you tell how happy I am with my new padded parka from Subdued. Winter, I’m ready for you! Oh, and I did something else with my hair for a change. Kiddin’ ;) Hope you don’t mind (more…)

Full midi tulle skirt

P1130274 P1130308Have you noticed full midi tulle skirts all over the place? Have you?! They have been all over MY place lately anyway. I thrifted my skirt at Froufrou’s in Arnhem again for only 15 euros. Great deal, right? It suits me slightly over the knee, perfect with bare legs, but also excellent to wear with tights when it gets colder. Which it certainly is already right now  (more…)
