Do you know the feeling; whenever the sun starts to shine and the temperature starts raising all you want to do is sit down and lay back? Only wearing on your body jeans a top and sneakers? That day was today.

Since I wrote Beached Waved Hair & Sneakers, I’m starting to like wearing sneakers! I’m glad they come in many various forms and colours. These simple ones, I have them for a long time, so long that I forgot I had them (oops…). They are still good to go, I remembered why I had them in the first place, they are so comfy!

I combined the jeans before. This time I wore it with a loose fit top. Whenever you walk it moves with you. You’ll get that feeling when you spin around in your favourite jaunty dress or skirt. I know I exaggerate, but you know what I mean hihi…

A white bag is indispensable in your wardrobe! It’s like a black blazer; you can wear, or in this case take it wherever you go! The combining possibilities are perfect too. What I like about the bag is the little holes details on it. To make it more fabulous I added a pearl necklace piece. It was broken and I did not want to throw it away.

On a simple outfit belongs simple jewellery. I fell in love with this Jade Stone necklace from Lana’s Sieraden. Same goes with silver jewellery, it just never goes out of style!

Fashion #OOTD | In Black We Trust.

Who doesn’t like wearing black every day? After blue, the colour black comes close to my heart.

I wore this jumpsuit before on an outfit post I liked it then and I like it now. What I love about jumpsuits is that black ones make them classic and chic. Prints, graphic jumpsuits are bohemian and edgy! Many combinations which fashionista doesn’t like that?

Did I tell you about my striking heels? I’m falling in love with them every time I wear them. Sorry, for this Carrie Bradshaw moment. I got carried away hihi..

For this outfit I choose for a chic hairdo. I put my hair in a low bun. Donuts for your hair come in handy. It was a while since I used one. It got forgotten so when I remembered I wanted something else then wearing my hair down.

To finish this look I decided to wear simple but yet chic arm candy.

Fashion #OOTD | Cardigan & Striking Heels!

I can be so happy if I wear an denim skinny jeans that has a perfect fit! With my pear shaped figure it’s quite hard to find one.

I love my jaunty top! It gives this outfit a girly yet chic look. When I shoot for this outfit, it was a beautiful day. The weather was just right for wearing an cardigan. The great thing about this cardigan is that it has a butterfly fit. A bit tight on the arms and the rest loose. Perfect for staying warm yet fashionable to wear!

As you all know me, I like good accessories on an outfit. The edgy touch of zippers on the FVH clutch gives this bag a stalwart look. Perfect combination with the striking heels! Not only I can find myself in to the point shoe trend, but also with sassy detailed shoes!

Do like this outfit as much as I do?

Fashion Collab | LEREN CONNOR.

Watercolour3web

Fashion is to me an artistic expression of defining who you are. Through clothing you’ll get to know a bit of people just by looking at their first sight.

Whenever I see the work from LEREN CONNOR I see refined modern art. The fashion and jewellery designer based in Derby England has an eye for details. She has truly magic hands.

Her focus on every clothing piece can be seen on the fabric and shape. The thoughts behind her collections is that no fabric is a waste. She believes in recycling, charity shops and second hand clothing pieces which makes her collections more and more beautiful.

Collection Spring/Summer 2015.

I’m gladly to introduce to you LEREN CONNOR Spring/Summer 2015 collection Colour Pop.

This collection truly pops! I really like the combination of simple with edgy details. The colours gives a spring/summer vibe and the details are perfectly chosen.

S/S15 – Colour Pop
“He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.” ~Sonia Delaunay

”For S/S15 we bring you the colours of spring and summer, the vibes of the festival season, those relaxing summer nights, day trips out with the girls and the atmosphere of the heat and that inner rainbow we all have inside us. We all rejoice in the sun and bask in the fresh smell of blooming flowers and the cool breezes that pass through the freshly cut grass and moves through the trees. They’re the seasons of adventure and spontaneity, the months of relaxation, but also a time to get your best summer attire out the wardrobe and show the world your vibrant self.”

”S/S15 for us was all about mixing colour and print together, the atmosphere of summer and the calm of spring inspired me, inspiration from warm memories and the blissful moods of spring and summer, everything is always brighter and colour flows frequently in every direction. I began with pantones and began to bring in neutrals that contrasted well when the prints were brought into play, making sure the collection was versatile and capsule collection was key, it needed to target a wider audience.”

”I wanted to create simple yet eclectic garments that you can wear either in the day and then mix it up in the evening, the collection ranges from festival wear, casual wear and evening wear. Fabrics through out the collection are a combination of recycled material and also fabric from our suppliers, I also had the pleasure of making our own fabric for this collection, in two of the jackets we see our free fabric which are made up from all the scraps of fabric used through out the collection. Three of the dresses are made from free lace with each piece having their own colour way. Recycling is and will always be a huge part of what we do here at Leren Connor and what a better way to show it off through our S/S15 capsule collection.”

The more I look at the collections the more I like it. Leren Connor has a distinct style that she express in a beautiful way. Her work is thoughtful also towards her customers. Every original piece is handmade, if you see a piece that you truly love you can contact her to pass your clothing size. This shows to me adhesion to her customers and devotion to her collections!

 

Fashion #OOTD | Bohemian Twist.

IMG_1199 IMG_1209

I adore the Bohemian look! That summer vibes/hippie look makes me think about the laid back summer days!

With spring and summer just right on the corner I automatically reach the bright coloured clothing in my closet. The red lace top, popped out so I chose it. I combined it with high waisted denim jeans. Instant tummy tuck! Those jeans are a blessing!

The twist of this outfit is the heels. Not only it makes me taller, (for a shorty) it gives it a feminine look! As I already said, I adore the Bohemian look and to finish it off I chose my H&M fringe bag.
The lace top is already an eye catcher so I kept my earrings simple, just a red pearl dot and I’m good to go besides it is totally fine to play with accessories. That effect gave the pink and glitter beagle arm candy!

I wore heels with it but imagine it with cute sandals and a head turban!

Have you ever been in love on an item you saw in a magazine? I was it on a poncho from H&M. I wanted to buy it on online but guess what? Sold out for WEEKS! Happy I was when I found this one out of the blue!

Who is not familiar with those comfy days but yet you want to look fashionable Saturday was such a day to me. I went shopping with my mum, sister and her little girl a real ladies day!

It’s been a while since I put the shoes on I wore that day. Like many others I keep in a closet. Thank god you can wear them even when years passes by. Clothes sizes changes, shoes sizes never!

Do you agree?

Fashion – Tip | Statement Alert.

IMG_0986 IMG_0987 IMG_0988 IMG_0990

I’m obsessed with the trend statement necklaces! I’m seeing them everywhere, from sophisticated to chic to truly eye catchers! I love the way it sparkles your outfit especially when you wear it under the collar of a blouse.

Statement necklaces, the name says it, it really does give you a statement. You can wear it on a school/college day or a chic one at the office. Don’t forget the holidays, just for the last finishing touch on your Christmas outfit.

I really like the one I wore with the outfit Colorblock Statement. Cute for summer, an eye catcher for other days! The second one I like is the simple gold/bordeaux one it’s just cute!

Of course I like all my statement necklaces, every time I want to wear one is a true surprise which one I want to wear!

Tell me your thoughts Loves!

Fashion #OOTD | Before December.

IMG_0959 IMG_0955

Last Saturday I got inspired from Mila Kunis in the 70s Show! I wanted a different outfit post to show you all. I mostly wear skinny jeans but seeing the latest trends I of course had to keep up.

Wearing a boot cut jeans is a blessing for short people! It makes your legs look longer besides that it makes you look feminine.I went for natural colors because that’s what Mila mostly wears on the show so I thought why not. It suits also perfect for fall.

I saw many fashion bloggers wearing hats and it looked so good on them! So I added one more to mine collection of head pieces and I love it!

Have a great last month Loves!

Fashion #OOTD | Autumn Bleu.

IMG_0925 IMG_0910IMG_0930 IMG_0927

I had a lunch date with my lovely sister as I was dressing myself to go; I took a last look in the mirror and I noticed that I was dressed in mostly bleu…I was totally unaware of it! I guess the ‘’ghost of blue’’ took me over hihi…

You can wear perfectly a dress in the fall! Wearing it with tights and a warm coat with a scarf and you are good to go.

I really like my statement necklace. It gave my outfit a chic touch. Most of all an eye catcher just completes an outfit. My bag gave me a little summer vibe! Bright full colors! Summer all over again…To bad it rained right after I met my sister and I had to take my umbrella-ella-ella ey!

Fashion Sketch By Me | Oscar de la Renta Inspired!

IMG_0869 IMG_0870 IMG_0871 IMG_0872

I was looking through my phone on my fashion related apps and I saw on all the news feeds that Oscar de la Renta passed away. As a fashion lover I looked him up on the internet, I already knew him as a fashion designer but had no clue what he all created. As I was looking through his dresses Walhalla, I was impressed! It looked amazing and mostly original! He surely left a fashion legacy.
So I started to take my pencil and draw Oscar de la Renta inspired dresses.

‘’Valentino Feather’’ a sweetheart neckline and a feather waistline style line skirt.
‘’Classic Feather’’ a high neckline and an A-Line split skirt with black details on top.
‘’ Strapless Fishtail/Mermaid’’ an strapless neckline with see trough fabric on the waist with bleu stone details.

I really like it! Do you?

Fashion #OOTD | Hello Autumn!

Gilet: H&M Leather Jacket: Hema Blouse: H&M Pants: H&M Shoes: H&M Necklace: Primark Bag: SOFIA

To be honest…I don’t like the season Autumn. The weathers change instantly in the Netherlands. I always bring my umbrella with me, if I don’t my hair is going to look like an cotton candy…!

But…New season means new wardrobe! And that moi ja’dore! I like my fluffy gilet from H&M. I’m wearing it on top of my leather jacket to keep me warm. Don’t you have a leather jacket, no worries it looks good on a warm sweather. Make sure you wear one as long as the gilet to prevent short and long layers. Personally I don’t like that.

What do you think of my new bag? I love it! Do I need to say more? Who knows me know that I like details. The golden details of my outfit fits very well together. With gold you just never could go wrong!

Fashion #OOTD | Colorblock Statement.

IMG_0769 IMG_0779 IMG_0781

I really like this outfit! I feel very femine in it. As you all know me…Blue, blue, blue lover overhere! Navy blue is such a classic color, it is always good like black.

In my first post I told that I really like eye catchers as accessories. It could be anything. The reason why I love them is that even tough you put something on like a plain white shirt and a denim jeans, when you combine it with an eye catcher you don’t need more!

I never thought that colorblocking would be something for me because I thought it would not look good. I was wrong.

How would you combine this maxi skirt? Please do show me…!

 

Event Report | Grazia Magazine Fashion Masterclass.

Blogpost Fotos

I attended the fashion master class of Grazia magazine! I saw the event at the Facebook group Blogger Community Nederland. I was very curious about it!

As days went by before the day of the master class I felt very excited about it! I also was nervous because I never went to events like this. I am a social person but when I’m not familiar with something I attend to back off. But since I started to blog I taught myself to meet new people and stand in front of the line to talk about my blog because I am very proud of it and that’s it is oke to show things that you love to do.

The master class started at 09:30 a.m. at the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel in Amsterdam. I signed myself in and they showed us the way for a nice cup of coffee or tea. The class started at 10:00 a.m. Dutch stylist Manon Meijers talked about the in’s and out’s of her profession. You can visit her website at MonStyle then there was Cara Schiffelers she is the Fashion Director of Grazia. She told us all about behind the scenes of the magazine. I always wanted to work for a fashion magazine but due circumstances I put this dream away. What she said stayed with me: ‘’working for a magazine is not like The Hills! Keep on dreaming!’’ I instantly thought about Ugly Betty! It gave me a smile on my face because I really liked the show! But it also made me realize to get back to the reality!

After these two lessons we had lunch in the beautiful restaurant of the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel. As I sat down to enjoy the meal Tamara Tuithof from Holland Style joined me. Such a sweet girl! She is the founder of Holland Style and gave me a lot of tips about blogging and the whole packaged. I’ll definitely go to use them for in the future!

The lessons started again. This time Bridget Maasland television host and Fashion Designer talked about her in’s and out’s of her profession and how she started in the fashion business. What was very nice to hear that it is a family business. She took her parents with her and they answered a lot of questions from the audience. You could see that they are a very loving family. I recommend you to take a look at The Daily Lady It’s worth your time!

After a break, Fashion designer Bas Kosters came in to tell his story. From the moment he spoke I could see that he was very passionate about his work. He talked about his collection Love, Fuck Yeah! How it started and what was the idea behind it. His style is very daring en even provocative. You either hate it or love it!

Editor Hilmar Mulder attended the master class too. She thanked all of us from coming. She looked very stylish in blue! Keep updated about her on social media. It’s too bad that she’s going to be the editor of ELLE magazine. I truly believe that she will be missed!

When the classes were over we all went to the Sky Lounge were we mingled while enjoying a small snack and a drink. Grazia did not leave us empty handed. They gave us a full goodie bag as a gift! It’s always fun to open presents!

At the end of the day, I surely lost my fashion virginity. I left with a lot of experience and blisters on my feet! TOTALLY WORTH IT!
