At the beginning of the new year I reflect more than usual. I do that sometimes consciously and unconsciously, I guess you can say ‘’new year, new me’’ is kind off the truth. This also applies to my blog work. I look back at my writing, at my pictures and my outfits when it comes to fashion posts.
I have noticed that 2016 was a year of basic colours which I understand because having basic items in your wardrobe creates a whole outfit, adding details makes an outfit complete. As I look back at my style I see that it is neutral and monochrome. Namely black and grey dominates my wardrobe and I like it!
I went also for simplicity. That is what I love, that you can add your own details or that you find that perfect fashion item that you’ll keep for ages. See it as your first designer bag that you deserved because of your hard work. How can you even blame yourself for wanting it?
Looking back means also to know what I want to see differently. Let me be honest with you Loves, I like my style. It suits my personality; however, I would love to add more designer items into my wardrobe, I limited it to bags and jewellery. I guess it is because I don’t want to use an expensive item too much daily. Or the real question: ‘’do I really need it?’’
As I told you in my previous blogpost, 2017 is for me a new year to grow and learn more. Maybe I will change my style in a way that I think I wouldn’t suit me at all or even better I never thought I would wear it! That is the beauty of fashion.

Although I am a real summer and spring lover I cannot avoid the autumn and winter season, nobody can; but I do can try to love it and make the most of it. So, new season equals new wardrobe and I can’t wait to hit the stores again!
As you all know me Loves I plea for an outfit that has details so imagine what I thought about my feather jacket. I fell instantly in love with it because I truly love outfits with a twist. That is also why I chose flared jeans for this outfit. This kind of jeans makes your legs look endlessly long and for a shorty like me I felt in my element. Just like having a good fit skinny jean I also recommend you Loves to have at least one flared jeans in your wardrobe.
When the seasons is changing you automatically change clothing colours in your closet. I like if the colours emerald green and gold are combined, it gives a sophisticated look when it comes to wearing black as a basic colour. Just like the colour black, the colour gold belongs also in the classic colours list. As I already spoke to you in my Basic Love blogpost, starting with the basics you can create your own style however you want it. I think that is the beauty of fashion, it defines every style!
I am definitely a shoe and bags-aholic, the golden details on my cross body bag swooped me away. The golden details give the bag a chic look and this while the price tag was very kind to me hihi…

As you all know Loves I’m in Morocco, my place to be when I’m going on a holiday. Morocco is rich in architecture, art, culture and of course clothing. In my event report about Twiza Festival I already gave you a glimpse of what Moroccan culture is about. When it comes to clothing, Moroccan dresses are made to impress. Even when you are choosing which fabric you want to use before you bring it to the tailor, it will take you hours or even days to find the one you really want. Moroccan attire is just precision work.
It is all about the details but, Moroccan style has also simplicity. The dress I’m wearing I bought it in the Netherlands in a Moroccan Islamic store. This dress is called djellaba (pronounce: zalaba). Every djellaba is a loose- fitting robe with long sleeves and is manly worn in North Africa along with other Arabic-speaking countries. The robe is unisex and can be adjust in any way that you like.
I like to wear djellaba in feminine colours and fitted. Traditionally, djellabas are made of wool and comes in different shapes and colours, although nowadays lightweight cotton djellabas have become more and more popular!
As much I like simplicity, I also prefer details. The loafers I’m wearing is a perfect example! Just like the djellaba it comes with different colours and styles. These loafers, called balgha is yet again for both sexes. Wearing it with a simple djellaba is just the perfect combination! I’m going to make a fashion confession: the other reason why I like this robe is that it’s so comfortable to wear. You could wear your unicorn pj under and nobody would notice it. Great right? Hihi…
The beauty of fashion is that every style has its own unique way. It is timeless and has a major culture bound, it represents who you are.
Loves, show me your traditional clothing!
