Chokers, ruffles and block heels

How to spice up a white blouse? A plain white blouse couldn’t be more basic, so how to style it into an interesting look? Well, to me a dare devil shoe is the way to go. Go for a lace up heel, preferably a flatform like I’m wearing today, or a…

Pastel pink peg trousers

Meet my beloved pastel pink peg trousers. I know, it’s bare legs weather over here as we speak. But since ‘here’ = Holland, we’d better prepare ourselves for some temperature drops to come soon. So for today, as depressing as it might sound, some inspiration on what to wear when the…

Blueprint mirrored sunglasses

Chase the sun with Blueprint

When people think of Holland (at least those aware that it’s a country in Europe) they usually picture a flat country with windmills, tulips and lots of Gouda cheese. Weather-wise they’d probably think we have lots of rain and a lack of sunshine. The reality hits usually just minutes after…
