Summer has officially started and this is my first Summer ootd. Summer is one of my favourite season, so imagine my joy while shooting for this outfit Loves. I felt like I was in a fairy-tale because one: it was a while since my last outfit post and two: the location was so beautiful!
Summer equals dresses and I am so not complaining. Dresses are so feminine, cute and adorable! I’m wearing a floral A-line maxi dress with butterfly sleeves. I am not a ‘’print lover’’ but floral prints I can deal with. The dress comes with a twisted belt with black beads and golden details. As you all know me Loves: details make an outfit complete.
While standing in front of my closet, thinking about what to wear for a shoot, came also the thought: which bag should I take with me? I don’t know about you Loves, but I often doubt about what kind of bag I should take with me when I wear a maxi dress. A big one? A tote? I wanted to wear one that suits the dress and since the dress is bohemian I chose a red chic crossbody bag from my collection. I like that the bag has a faux snakeskin at the front with golden details and the deep red colour. A perfect match with the dress!
To keep everything not over the top, I kept my sandals simple. I wore silver coloured flip lop sandals. It feels so amazing to wiggle your toes when you wear flats. Oh, I love Summer!
Share your thoughts with me Loves. Also, can we take a moment by looking at the roses? So beautiful!

I had the change to go to Glamour Magazine Fashion-Vintage Live event. The Dutch Glamour has a cross-media expansion that’s called Fashion-Vintage and Glamour Concept Store. On both sites you have the possibility to buy and sell your clothes and even at the Concept Store you can pitch your brand to get featured! Amazing right?
As a subscriber to their magazine I had the opportunity to go snoop in many goodies from Glamour readers, many bloggers, Glamour workers and famous Dutch people. As I was wandering through the stands I saw nice goodies but also many goodies that sellers are selling them for prices that I wouldn’t buy it for. To be honest.
I did like snooping trough the goodies from well-known Dutch stylist By Danie. I was curious what she wears, especially in her free time. Too bad many things of her did not fit me, our shoe sizes don’t match. The faux fur letters on the pink sweater from Glamour Concept Store caught my eye. So fluffy!
As I was looking my eyes out during the Fashion Walhalla I got a bit thirsty so I was pleased to find a smoothie bar. The juices were made just the right way, not to sour. While I was sipping on my juice I saw these beautiful kimonos. I like to prints on it, what a Summer vibe! Glamour was even so thoughtful for their visitors. You could feel like a princess because there were make-up artists happy to make a perfect look for you.
Everything comes to an end. When I wandered a last round trough the stands I went with a good feeling about the day home. My ticket was included with goodie bag. And I was glad to find lovely goodies in it! I like the to-go cup and planning to do a review about the Aveda Body Salt.
To be continued Loves!
I’ve noticed that it has been a while since I sketched. My portfolio was not up to date at all and I decided to work on it.
The first thing I wanted to do is to get inspiration so I surfed the web and flipped through many fashion magazines. I saw a lot of beautiful pieces that caught my eye but I truly found my peace with the nature ones. When I saw the nature pictures on the web I instantly saw how the dress would look like! So I started to sketch.
I’m very pleased how they turned out. It is exactly what I had in mind! I even noticed that I’m growing in my sketches. It is more detailed than before. I enjoyed every bit of it and told myself I should pick it up more!
What do you think Loves?
