Lace-up corset top

When I spotted this lace-up corset top from Style Mafia online, I just couldn’t resist clicking it home to me. Okay, to be honest, I don’t have that much money to spend on clothing. But every once in a while I try to invest in a pretty piece that would…

Oh that halter top

by

I’m pretty sure there is – or has been – a halter top in every girls’ wardrobe. A halter top is a reference to a neck style close to the neck, usually a tie-up or a button-up. I’ve always thought the halter top wasn’t for me. I don’t know, it…

Freedom and happiness

To me there’s nothing better than the feeling of freedom. That’s why I love to walk into the woods with Popcorn so much and that’s why I like walking along the coast of Noordwijk and Katwijk. As of lately I’ve been walking Popcorn for at least half an hour to an…

That leopard coat

I’ve always been a sucker for leopard prints. It’s been a while since I last wore a proper leo item, hence today’s look. It’s very hard tho to find a leopard winter coat that isn’t too lowbrow you know. But I guess I got lucky with the one I found from…

Oh my, Valentine’s Day 2017 is coming closer every day! Do you celebrate Valentine’s? To be honest, my boyfriend and I don’t really celebrate it. We rather express our love for each other on unexpected moments you know. Yes, that sounds so cliché, I know. But to us it’s so…

Hi girls! Happy new week! It’s December, time flies so fast! Especially during this time of the year I am always struggling what to wear. It’s definitely getting colder outside but it’s not winter everyday yet. Guess it’s always the choice between dressing too cold or too warm these days….

Lady in red

Of all colors red is my favorite color to wear. In general. It has always been. Red is often the color chosen by someone outgoing (check), vigorous (check) and hilarious (oh yeah, check). It goes with an ambitious nature (check) but those who choose it can be abrupt at times (check), determined to get all they…

Maxi skirt

For quite some time I have been craving a black maxi skirt or a somewhere below pencil one with interesting ruffles. You know, a skirt that makes people ask: I love your skirt, where is it from? As time passed and the obsession kind of passed away too, I unexpectedly ran…
