Fashion OOTD | Black & Pink.

I went with black and pink, my two besties, to the Glamour Beauty Festival. My two favourite colours after cobalt blue. Not only is black my happy colour, adding a pop of colour adds flair into the outfit! During autumn and winter are a scarf and my boy cap my go-to must haves. I confess: I’m in love with my cap! Guilty of wearing it every day, perfect for those cold windy days. The ones who know the weather in the Netherlands, know what I mean. Don’t let the sun fool you!

I had such a great time during the festival, but also while shooting this outfit of the day with my sister. I was in Amsterdam and I love that place! The city is alive, the architecture is beautiful to look at and very multicultural. The place to be, to meet other people! Too bad I didn’t think about to shoot pictures for my second Instagram account. It’s all about photography, my second passion next to blogging.

I found the perfect flared legging Loves. Gosh, this is the type of legging that you can wear as a pants. Yes, those exist! Very comfy, perfect for those days when you want to move around comfortable during a day. I rather enjoy the festival then to worry about too tight jeans. You don’t see it, but I’m wearing a over the butt tunic. I think tunics are great with flared leggings. It makes you look longer because of the proportion.

As you know me Loves, I’m a major addict when it comes to bags. I love how it comes in different styles and sizes. Like shoes, you never can go wrong with the perfect fit. The snake pattern on the bag is simple, just the way I like it. I’m not a major fan of patterns but sometimes I want to make an exception.

 

What is your go-to must haves Loves?

Fashion #OOTD |Trench(coat), Cap & Go!

Loves, I have a new outfit of the day for you! It has been awhile since my latest OOTD, which was during Summer in Morocco. I miss Morocco so much, it’s getting colder and colder in The Netherlands, typical autumn weather. Dark clothes, sweaters and hats are taking it over from colourful clothing, sandals and sun glasses.

A black skinny is my all-time favourite clothing item, I have like two of the same fit in my closet. I want them to stay black, so I wear them alternately. This way they stay black and I was them when needed. Autumn equals oversized, I’ll make sure that I have black sweaters in my wardrobe. You never can go wrong with black! What you also never can go wrong with is a trench coat. I love how it adds flair into a simple outfit, like the one I’m wearing. Beige is the perfect colour, it never goes out of style. I like the details on them, like the black strap on the sleeves and black buttons.

I’m lately obsessed with my captain cap! If you follow me on Snapchat, SaidaSnaps, you have seen me rocking it during the cold weather. I like the woven strap and captain button on it. It gives that edgy, yet chic look. I also hide unabashedly underneath the cap during cycling, one: I can conquer the wind and two: my hair doesn’t turn into a cotton ball. I’m ready for autumn, black clothing is hanging in my closet and black shoes are taking the front row on my shoe shelf. Ankle boots is my go-to shoe at the moment. Wearing it with the black skinny appears my legs look longer. Quite impressive, what shoes can do!

A bag, also a must-have that makes an outfit complete. I finally got a Paul’s Boutique in my collection of high-end bags. The bag is literally square! It doesn’t collapse when you put it down, which is a plus. It also has a strap, I can wear it like a crossbody bag and as a handbag. I like that combination, I don’t have to worry about tired hands or shoulders.

I’m in my midst of my exams and writing a new blogpost feels so good. Setting my mind on something else is the perfect way to go on with learning when I hit that publish button!

How is everything going on with you Loves?

Beauty | Oil My Hair Softly.

I have been on vacay to Morocco and I wouldn’t be from Moroccan origin if I don’t bring back oils. They can be used for anything, face, body and hair. Every Moroccan beauty queen swears by argan oil, the Moroccan liquid gold. Black seed oil for getting strong hair, rose oil for moisturizing your face and applying a drop on your hair for that sweet rose scented smell. Two birds in one stone!

As long as I can remember, oil belongs into my haircare routine. After I shower and let my hair dry for a bit, the first thing I do is use argan oil or blackseed oil on my hair. I have written a blogpost about argan oil and its benefits. I still swear by it because it is a truly holy grail when it comes to my hair.  Argan oil is proven to make hair softer, silkier and shinier. It is the ideal hair conditioner, and it can even help to treat split ends and tame frizzy hair. Due to its ability to tame frizz and give hair shine, argan oil is also commonly used as a styling agent. It makes hair more manageable and adds a healthy, attractive shine to any hair style. This is an ideal step to add to my daily routine after blow-drying or shower. I rub a few drops of argan oil over my palms and then comb my fingers through my hair.

Black seed oil is such a powerful oil, it truly does its wonders. It’s well known for its purifying benefits to clear acne prone skin. It nourishes the skin and within weeks your skin gets clearer! It smells like wet wood in a forest, at first its heavy and then its only leaving his nature vibe. A drop is more than enough, add it with your favourite conditioner for a quick hair mask boost or in your favourite facial creme for that natural healthy glow.

I use rose oil after I style my hair to get it shinier. It also gives my hair that perfect rose scented smell, like perfume. You also can use it as a bath oil to nourish you skin. It’s makes your body feel so soft! I sometimes use it on my hands and feet’s when I go to bed. It makes my skin softer and my cuticles are because of it, easier to manicure.

I cannot live without my oils! It’s truly rooted in my hair and facial routine. I remember when I was a child, that during my holiday in Morocco my aunts and niece comb my hair and use argan oil for my hair. Back home in the Netherlands my lovely mother would do the same. As a grown up I continue to do so and even pass it on my daughter!

Fashion #OOTD | Stripes At Home.

This is my first outfit I posted on my blog…This year. The last couple of months I have been so busy with my studies and my home life, that I forgot about myself. I have been since I can remember an emotional eater. I gain weight when I’m feeling stressed, even at some moments during my days, I don’t realise I have been eating a lot during the day. Eating snacks or sandwiches late at night while I’m watching a good movie or show on Netflix has been rooted in my routine. It was the perfect way to escape my daily routines and thoughts.

Since my semester from college is over I have been hitting the gym three times a week and I feel much better than before. If you follow me on Instagram you will notice my gym journey. I feel more energetic and confident in my own body, especially when I lost a couple of kilos. I am still not where I want to be, but I’m still motivated to work on it. Even during my vacay in Morocco.

My mother took these pictures in our home in Oujda, Morocco. I love how the tiles on the wall adds flair into my ootd. Most of the houses in Morocco look like this, a lot of tiles and 1001 nights Moroccan décor. It is so colourful, it matches perfectly with the green and stripes of my outfit. Flared trousers make you look skinnier and vertical stripes makes your legs appear longer. The perfect combination for a shorty like me!

Looking at these pictures made me realise I literally look like a Moroccan flag! The green top and red ring bag are the perfect shades for it. I am so obsessed with the golden details of the bag, red and gold is such a chic combination. It also has the right size for a crossbody bag. I prefer wearing flared trousers with heels. I chose to wear a black block heel sandals with ankle straps. The heel is the right centimetres, it lifts the ends of my trouser just right off the ground.

It feels like it has been forever since I posted my last ootd. I appreciate your thoughts about it! Share with me if I have to post more outfits on my blog.

Fashion | My Go To Summer Essentials.

Spring and summer are my favourite seasons. It goes so far that I literally wear oversized clothing during autumn and winter every single day. Nothing wrong with that, I can wrap myself in my oversized sweater like a burrito. However, it isn’t much exciting as spring and summer clothing! Aside from floral dresses and stripes, am I sharing with you Loves my go to summer essentials that I always wear during summer.

The weather in the Netherlands has bipolar moments so, my number one item is a blazer. It’s perfect for those warm/cold days if you wear a jacket it’s too warm and if you go without one it’s too cold. Same goes with ballerina’s flats, without a doubt you will find a black pair in my shoes collection. As you all know me Loves, I like details! I was pleased to see the golden details on the back of the flat heel. Don’t forget the denim jeans, we ladies have a love and hate relationships when it comes to finding the perfect fit jeans. When we have one, we hold onto it like Frodo and his ring. Right Loves?

Sunglasses an item that is fashionable and practical in one. Perfect way to hide those bags under your eyes because you enjoyed the typical summer night a day before. Jewellery also belongs to my summer essentials list. Especially golden jewellery because it matches with a tan perfectly!

Share with me your essentials. Maybe I forgot a key piece!

Fashion #OOTD | Summer Floral Dress.

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!

Fashion | Head Over (Heels) Shoes!

‘’I have enough shoes’’ said no woman ever! It’s a fact that we ladies always say to ourselves ‘’I don’t have this one yet’’ or ‘’it is on sale’’ while we have many from different styles and colours. Don’t forget the many pairs we have from the same style but in different colours! Shoes are like black little dresses, for every occasion we need/have one. Every season needs a new wardrobe well, the same goes for shoes. Right Loves? Spring equals no-more-fuzzy-socks-in-boots attitude, time to wiggle our toes!

As much I enjoy living in the Netherlands I wish I could change the weather with a blink of an eye. During spring the sun comes behind the clouds with the wind chasing after him. We sometime have a beautiful sunny morning that turns into rain and thunder and makes our hair like cotton candy. Even the weather app can fool you. It would be such a bummer when you are wearing open shoes and the rain pours out of the sky right on top of your freshly nail polished toes. Thank god for Oxford shoes! I fell in love with the pink and the black lacquer one. This is what I meant with same style, different colour. I even walk so comfortable with them. What more can I say!

Now, it is obviously that I am a shoe-a-holic. I am having lately a crush on suede/velvet shoes. I wanted a good black loafer and a cute block heels shoes. Making the decision to put the loafer and sandals into the virtual shopping basket was easy made. You can wear the loaders as slippers just by letting the heel parts down. It reminded me of the fluffy slippers from Gucci. I mostly walk on flat shoes because of college and whenever I run for small errands. Sometimes I feel bad for not wearing heels, quite a waste because I have them collecting dust in my closet. With these I am trying to change that. Now I must wait until summer to wiggle my toes in them.

Fashion – Tips | Always On Time.

img_5113

Watches are the perfect accessories that you can wear with any style. They are timeless, fashionable and because of the many designs it is a style chameleon of an item. I like it! Even if you wear it with no other accessory it can make your outfit complete. Simplicity with a twist is than my favourite go to when it comes to fashion.

I recommend you Loves to start with your own watch collection. They always come in good use. Not only they are practical they are a great accessory to add flair on your ootd. They are also a good investment when it comes to having a collection of expensive bling.

img_5115

img_5119

My watches are very diverse from chic to edgy. They match with the many outfits I wore and still wear. Find your own style and match the watches with your own taste. My newest addition is the brown gold watch from Rosefield. It is truly my latest obsession! I did not have a brown one yet, so the decision was easy made. What I love about watches is that I see them as something that I use with my daily essentials and it depends on how I feel, what I wear which one I want to wear it with. When I wear, my golden Guess watch I feel a bit special because it is given to me by my sister as a birthday gift. This one has an emotional value.

img_5132

img_5134

Simplicity is truly my statement, so I fell in love with my black Daniel Wellington watch. I have it for a while now and I still can’t get enough of it. A black coloured watch is to me like a little black dress; it is a fashion item that you need to have.

img_5136

img_5139

img_4969

I’m not the most difficult person when it comes to purchasing stuff. I can be easily happy with an inexpensive product as with an expensive one. So, I was happy to see beautiful watches with good quality and wallet friendly. On top of that; they are perfect for my style!

img_0753

I like the colour pink a lot, it looks sweet and yet again the choice was easy made. To make my basis colours watches complete I added of course a grey one. To keep it edgy I wanted a watch that has a striking look. My silver Guess watch with leopard print on the side was my perfect match.

Fashion #OOTD | In The City.

img_5031

My first #OOTD of 2017 is a fact and I started it with pink and comfy! I was photographed last Sunday and it was a typical lazy easy going day. The Sundays we all know, I even did not think about this outfit a lot and sometimes it feels amazing.

img_5050

When it comes to comfy my mind says; oversized clothing straight away! The bigger the better but I don’t want to look like a hobo so adding statement accessories gives your outfit that extra flair. I chose one of my favourite bags, which is of course a black one. I love the golden details and the fringe strings. Because of the two bag handles, one for taking (read: dragging it with you everywhere you go) it by hand and one by your shoulders makes it handy to switch whenever your hands or shoulders get tired. Handy, right Loves?

img_5071

Practical yet stylish those two words is to me common for a comfy look. I swear by ankle boots with a good ‘’walking heel.’’ Perfect when you must run some errands in the city. Since I’m writing you loves about accessories, I kept the rest simple. I wore my daily silver rings and kept my makeup subtle.

img_5036

Don’t let the brightness of the day fool you, it was so cold that I took my thickest scarf that I had and wrapped it around my neck to keep me warm. No questions asked! The weather changes so quickly here in the Netherlands that every day is a surprise. Even some weather apps aren’t a great way to found out not to be surprised. I always have an umbrella and gloves with me during the winter season because without them, you’ll get a cold that gets you straight to bed.

Fashion #OOTD | Look Book Of 2016.

fotorcreated

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.

fotorcreated3

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?

fotorcreated2

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.

Fashion – Tips | Sunnies All Season.

img_4915

It is all about the details, this is my well-known motto. When I have this kind of moment I get all tingly inside because I have that thought that nothing is perfect unless you look closer to details and then style it on your own.

img_4823

You would understand my thought just by looking at these Solo-Solis sunnies. I fell in love with the cat eyed frame, it reminded me of the popular sunglasses from Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Since I’m writing about details, the golden parts of the sunnie got me hooked! Black with gold never goes out of style and the combination together is just perfect.

img_4911

The beauty of sunnies is that you can use them daily, to me they are just like wearing your favourite lipstick. It is always good and it doesn’t even matter what you wear or what your style is. Solo-Solis means in Latin ‘’Only Sun’’ but that does not stop me to wear it all seasons I mean, how could I? They have many sophisticated frames that even I couldn’t pick just one!

img_4912

What I truly love about this Sunnie is it is light weighted, perfect when you put it on your chest when you wear a shirt or on top of your head to give your whole look that extra flair. They are very thoughtful when it comes to their eyewear, they have a UV400 protection. You can cheerfully enjoy your view during sunny days and how can I forget what we all secretly do; staring at that hottie who crossed your path. Right Loves?

Fashion #OOTD | Knee boots & Pink.

img_4732

These boots are made for walking! I truly like this high boots trend because you can wear them with many different clothing pieces. Comfy with a legging and oversized sweater, girly with a skirt and blouse or just like how I wore it; casual with a denim skinny jean and an oversized pink sweater.

img_4724

There is one clothing item that belongs into your wardrobe year in, year out and that’s a leather jacket. To me it is like a little black dress; you can style it in many ways and it even doesn’t matter which style you have. From chic to sporty, the leather jacket is truly an item that is ‘’fashion fit-all’’. What I also can appreciate is layering. I believe as a shorty the different heights of wearing clothes makes you look longer. It’s like the perfect illusion!

img_4741

I always try to combine the right colours when it comes to my clothes, this time too. I kept it simple with my chequered scarf and long necklace pink gemstone necklace. The blue of my denim jean and the pink of my sweater suits perfect with the colours of my scarf and because of it, it gives my outfit an overall look.

img_4739

I can say without a doubt that I have a bag and shoes addiction. When I see them in stores I get persuaded easily just because of the size, colour or detail. It is quite crazy because I have almost no space for them in my bedroom. Some I have for years and I still can’t get enough of them! I think every lady is familiar with this feeling so please don’t judge me! Maybe it’s because I’m lately in the ‘’everything needs to be pink mood’’. The colour is just so sweet a feminine and it makes me feel like that too.

Fashion #OOTD | I’m Ready For Autumn.

img_4425

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!

img_4400

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.

img_4428

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!

img_4416

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…

Are you ready for autumn Loves?

Fashion #OOTD | Moroccan Style.

IMG_4402

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.

IMG_4397

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!

Pic1

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…

Pic2

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!

Fashion #OOTD | Lumberjack Goes Rock!

IMG_4164

Black, my favourite non-colour. Like most, I always tend to choose the basic colours. With this outfit too. It feels simply amazing to get out the door with just a black skinny and black tee. But then again, I wouldn’t be me if I’m not adding a bit of flair into it.

I had the Vogue tee hiding in my closet for a while now, I thought it would be perfect to wear with my lately bought high waist skinny. Since the weather here in the Netherlands changes a lot and the tee has no sleeves I wore it with my plaid lumberjack shirt. Plaids are in, so fashionable and practical at once!

I wish I was a bit taller, so thank god for heels! To make my legs seem endless tall, I chose to wear black laced ankle boots with a block heel. Because of the heel it is comfy to walk in during my day.

IMG_4187

And now my favourite clothing piece at the moment, my jacket! I was literally searching for the perfect one so I was glad to find one at EXVE-Exclusive. The Boutique I work at. As a fashion lover I am at the perfect place to score beautiful items! I hope I can stick to my own money tips!

This ootd doesn’t need to much fuss, so I kept the rest simple. As you all know me Loves, less is to me more. That’s what I like about the cross body bag I wore that day.

 

What are your thoughts Loves?

Fashion – Style Tips | Basic Love!

IMG_3830

Fashion is important, your own style defines who you are. I always say and think that fashion is like falling in love at the first sight that grows into loving the inside. At the very beginning you search what your style is. At some moments in your life you go with the flow and it can turn out ugly or straight up beautiful. When that stage is over you are going to feel comfortable in your own skin that results into maintaining in your own style creation.

It doesn’t matter what kind of style you have, from bohemian, to modern or to preppy. We all need the basics to start with. If you have a style like mine that is minimal and less is more, am I going to tell you Loves what my style tips are.

IMG_3825

The perfect denim jeans, we cannot live without them. Yes, literally! We all own one or two pairs that we wear daily. The one that uplifts our butt, our confidence and even let us think about our memories: the jean that you wore on your first date or the one that you wore on your break up. Our beloved jean: we wash you, throw you on the floor and even tear you apart but we adore you!

The second clothing piece has also a place in our hearts and wardrobes. The black blazer. Perfect with the jean, dress and skirt! A versatile garment that everyone should have. The endless combinations that you can make with it is just amazing. One of the combinations is wearing it with a blouse. It can be a beautiful white one, chic black or a stripped one just for that extra flair!

IMG_3827

Not only with clothing you need the basics, accessories play a big part too. Not only they make an outfit complete it gives also that last boost up! I bet on it that every lady has at least one black handbag or clutch. The same as the black blazer Loves, you can use and take it with you and it doesn’t even matter which style you have.

Pumps! The heeled shoes that never goes out of style and to be honest, any black heeled shoe. From round noses and yes, even flats. They are perfect for any style and it belongs into the list of many other dream pairs like the sneakers and ankle boots.

To put the last finishing touches, I recommend every fashionista to invest in a good watch that has the basic colours as black and silver. To stay in your style, you always can add it up with a print or edgy details like leopard spots. Don’t forget the silver rings, yet again with an edgy touch like a black gemstone or adding a pendant on a simple necklace.

 

What are your basics?

Fashion #OOTD | Bright White.

IMG_2465

IMG_2461

I don’t wear a lot of sneakers but when I do I prefer them with details on them. Because of it my outfit has a nice addition. I must say that I never thought I would succumb to buy white sneakers because I doubted whether I would wear them or not. When I slowly saw that the streets turned into white sneakers parade I couldn’t resist to follow the crowd, certainly when I saw these bright whities on display in the shoe store. The snake print patch on the heel is fed into the sides of the sneakers which makes it not just too plain and they feel sooo comfy to wear! It feels like I’m walking on little clouds; so soft is the inside of the sneakers.

As you all know me Loves, I have an eye for details and love to bring it back in my style. So I noticed lately I’m adding faux snake patterns into my wardrobe. I have this black shopper for a while now and never looked at it as something I would like; I mean it’s just a black shoulder bag. But whenever I use it I feel like ‘’huh, it’s a good bag’’ and I’m starting to like it. Sounds crazy but I believe some of you Loves once had this feeling too. I wouldn’t be me if I’m not going to add some flair into it. When I saw this faux fur pompom I knew I wanted to have it! It is such a fun addition on my bag. It’s so fluffy and blue…My favourite colour so the choice was easy made.

Whenever I want to do something outside without too much fuss I rather put something comfy on then go over the top. This OOTD was a typical day like that. I went with my mum, my sister and her little sweetheart for our typical four musketeer’s getaway. So you could imagine Loves that I wanted to have rather fun then feel uncomfortable. I chose to wear a stretchy skinny and an oversized sweater. Sporty and comfy at the same time!

That day was also clouded and little drops of rain fell from the sky. To prevent my hair to look like a cotton candy I tight it in a low ponytail and I was ready to go!

What it your typical comfy day Loves?

Fashion #OOTD | Little Black Dress.

IMG_3613

Every woman should have a LBD in her closet. This item can be worn at many different occasions. What I like about a black dress it’s timeless, it just never goes out of style. I’m wearing one with long sleeves and a half up turtleneck. I’m lately into the turtlenecks sweaters, tops you name it Loves!

IMG_3628

I went for the minimal chic look, so I combined the LBD with my long grey coat that I recently bought. I was looking for a while for a long coat but I doubted it would suit me because of my length; I’m quite a shorty with just 1.63 metre. Since I took the step to buy one, I’m wearing it daily! With this #OOTD I wore it with my high heeled ankle boots. As I told you before Loves, I’m into detailed items and these boots are one of them. That’s the beauty of heels, it makes your legs look longer and with a long coat they seem endless. I brought the grey colour back with my crossover bag. I like the snakeskin pattern on it a lot. It gives the bag an edgy yet a chic look.

IMG_3630

Writing about details, I braided my hair in two braids starting on the top of my head until the end of my hair to create the illusion that I have long hair, but in fact it is only a little bit over my shoulder length long. I’m still learning to braid my hair tighter and for the first time it turned out pretty fine. Whenever I put my hair out of my face I wear my ear cuff, it gives a playful look and it is not over the top when you wear it only with small earrings. So I wore it with my DRKS earrings that has been gifted to me in a goodie bag since I attended the event.

The rest of my outfit I left simple, even my makeup. Less is truly more!

Fashion #OOTD | Rose Gold Pink.

IMG_3416

IMG_3413

Since I’m having Spring vibes and the days getting longer I attend to change my clothing in cute colours like pink. Not only it brightens my mood, I also feel that pink suits my character. It sounds weird but I feel comfy in pink.

I told you Loves that I’m into loose fit tops; this is the reason why this burgundy coloured sweater became my favourite. I wore it over a pink loose fit tee that I wore last Summer. Who said you cannot wear Summer clothing during Winter? Because of it you can enjoy more from the clothing piece and you can watch your pennies. Two birds with one blow! At the same time, burgundy goes so well with pink!

IMG_3425 IMG_3446

I can feel happy when I wear a skinny that suits my body figure. This cigar fit denim jean feels even comfy. It is still made from real denim and not that stretch denim, if you know what I mean? I really don’t like this kind of fabric because during your day it turns saggy.

In my last Goodies Look Book I bought these shoes with sale. I truly like things that is not ‘’perfect’’. In fact all goodies that have details or edges. The stripe on the nose of the ankle booth and the belt details caught my eyes when I saw it on the store shelf. The bag I chose for this ootd is a golden oldie. I have this bag for years! Just like my shoes collection. The bag is spacious I can cram everything in it hihi….! Off topic: Please, do let me know if you would like to see my over the years collected bags.

Writing about details Loves; investing in good pieces like a watch will keep you happy during the years and especially if it has an emotional value. This watch from Guess is a birthday gift from my sister. I’m lately into the necklace with necklace trend. These pink rose goodies is been gifted to me when I attend the press event from Mooi PR. The infinity necklace is from Swarovski and the necklace bar is from TWYN by Mi Moneda. Yet again this necklace bar has a value that is important to me. It is very personal because my name is with my own handwriting engraved on it by TWYN. Love it!

A watch or even a necklace can make your outfit complete. It’s a fun addition that you can style in your own way!

Fashion #OOTD | Black & Grey.

IMG_3358

IMG_3371

I can’t get enough of black and grey…Apparently. I think it’s because it is getting colder and darker every day. As you all know me; I don’t like the seasons autumn and winter. Too rainy, too dark too soon and windy! Especially the weather in the Netherlands changes just with a blink of an eye. Winter means also sweater weather! The only thing that I love. Sometimes I feel the need to snuggle all day with a comfy sweater. And whenever you go home you don’t want to change it you just wear your pjays instead of a skinny hihih…

The turtleneck sweater is made from mohair and is comfy oversized. It will keep me warm during these cold days. This time I wore a black waxed skinny. What I like about this skinny is it always stays black no matter how many times you wash it and it feels not to tight on my body like denim.

I roamed through many clothes racks, and still I did not find a black coat that I like. One day my lovely sister left hers at home and I didn’t give it back. If you read this sweetheart…Thank you! Hihi..

When I threw a glimpse at my shoes (read: collection) I didn’t know what to wear or to choose. But I did know that I wanted something to wear that makes this outfit not from comfy to sloppy. Eventually it became one of my favourite black boots. I like the golden stud’s details on it. With the pointy nose and small heels it looks chic yet edgy.

Writing about details; I wore my bohemian necklace that I truly love! Since it’s a comfy look I chose my grey shopper. This bag is typical a throw-anything-you-want-in-it-bag. But the suede faux snakeskin look makes it not look sloppy.

Fashion #OOTD | Faux Fur In January.

IMG_1416

My first OOTD of 2016! It took me a while because I’m having troubles with my camera. I’m not happy how it turns out whenever I put them in my laptop. Too dark! Too blurry! I really want a new one!

Black skinny jeans; I never can get enough of them. This versatile garment you will always find it in my closet and I believe I’m not the only one. What I like about this skinny jean is the fabric. It contains cotton but also elastane so I can move freely during my day.

IMG_1432

With the cold in the Netherlands I’m glad I found my holy grail in turtle necks sweaters and that for someone who used to hate them! I’m kind of enjoying the grey colour. This shade of grey in particularly. This time I chose for a half up turtle neck to wear because one; for a change and two I like wearing sweaters in this season!

IMG_1439

To stay warm I wore my faux fur gilet too. I love how edgy it looks. To keep my outfit monochrome I wore my black ankle boots with it and a black crossover bag. As you all know me Loves I like good accessories. My Daniel Wellington watch is a classic because of the black wrist belt it matches perfectly with my silver bracelets. Even though the details on my crossover bag are golden I kept my jewellery black and silver because why not? Nobody is perfect and certainly not me when it comes to outfits.

What do you think Loves?

Fashion #OOTD | Trench Coat & Emerald Green.

IMG_2786

With the latest collections in every store you can see that 50 shades of green are hip and happening right now and I must say; such a beautiful colour! I can find myself in the green colour fashion trend. Especially in emerald green.

It is all about the details and I love the cut out with lace on my top. It gives that bohemian look and I like the bohemian style! Chic and bohemian is a perfect combination when you want to style an outfit. So I like my trench coat. Every lady should have one in her closet. It just never goes out of style! I searched a lot to find the one I truly like; imagine how happy I was when I finally found it!

When it comes to college I need a big bag to carry my books and laptop with me. This shopper is perfect for it. It is very spacious, everything fits in it. Literally; phone and laptop chargers, make-up bag, notebook and agenda. Amazing right?

My pointy nose shoe I just can’t get enough of it. The striking heels are just lovely to watch.

Fashion #OOTD | Summer X Autumn.

Autumn. The season I’d rather not have. Especially in the Netherlands, the weather is a mess! The sun was shining, fifteen minutes later it rained. Quite daunting if you want to shoot for outfits!

I have to make the best of it, so I wore my pink sweater with the blue blouse I wore for this summer OOTD. Combining summer clothing with cardigans or sweaters works perfectly fine. Because the weather changes a lot I wore my black sailor blazer with it. The buttons has anchors on it and I love this detail!

This autumn you will see a lot of knee boots, I bought mine last autumn so I’m happy I already had them. I wore it with a denim jean, warm and comfy! Perfect for those college days to look feminine and fashionable. This style I truly love!

Statement necklaces are an item that is still coming back. They don’t call them statement necklaces for a reason, so many of them to choose from! I kept mine simple because I just like simple and elegant.

I added a new bag into my collection. Just like shoes it’s a habit I have.

Going to a Moroccan wedding is a perfect moment to take the time to dress and make-up. You can take your beautiful dress out of the closet and feel like Cinderella for a night. Everything is possible, except let the pumpkin carriage to the bride and the groom. You don’t want to exaggerate. After all, it is their moment.

Like any wedding it is a family and friends gathering. Music plays, people on the dancefloor and food in abundance. If you follow me on Instagram and snapchat (SaidaSnaps) you would catch a glimpse of the wedding day. You’ll love it!

As you all know me Loves, blue and silver! The decision was easy to make so I said yes to the dress.

Moroccan dresses are well known for their rich clothing fabrics. The ocean blue fabric is a sari and has hand-sewn rhinestones on it with sequins. The belt is handwoven.

When I’m wearing a Moroccan dress I prefer simple accessories with it. The dress is already an eye catcher so I don’t want to over dress. Same goes for my hair. I did a low bun, to keep it chic. Even though it is simple, it suits perfectly with a Moroccan dress. If you would like to know how I did my make-up that day, let me know and I will redo the make-up look!

I had such a great time! I really love to attend one. Imagine when I’m going to get married….

Would you wear a Moroccan dress?

Fashion #OOTD | Summer Mint.

Lately I have an obsession with the colour mint. I even slowly turn my room décor in that colour! It is so sophisticated with a pop of the colours silver and white.

I’m still having my vacay vibe and I hope I stay in it, so why not turning it up with this Summer OOTD!

I like the top I’m wearing, you can say; it is one of my favourites. I like loose fit tops because it swings nicely! The off-white colour makes it feminine yet chic. You can wear this kind of top on a skinny; like I did or a boot cut jeans for a casual day.

In the past you’ll never find me in jeans that are not black or blue. I always thought it’s too bright. I thought wrong, it is perfectly fine! Especially during Summer.

You cannot see it; the peep toe shoes I’m wearing are wedges. I don’t know who invented those heels but THANK YOU on behalf of all the ladies around the world! We can wear heels now longer whoop!

It is all about the details! I love the faux snake print on my bag. The bag was a bargain and the print makes it still chic. The cute bows on my peep toes and arm candy makes to me my ootd complete.

What would you wear during Summer?

P.s. i’m on Snapchat! Wihaa! Add me on SaidaSnaps I’d love to interact with you all Loves!

Fashion #OOTD | Floral Printed Kimono.

IMG_1761

It was such a beautiful day when I shot for this outfit! A typical all-the-odds-were- with-you-day. The sun and the wind helped me to set me in the mood to strike many poses, even the location gave me a ‘’fashion shooting vibe’’ I enjoyed every bit of it!

IMG_1768

IMG_1775

Not only I felt in my element shooting for this outfit, it also was a family day. I went on a pick nick with my lovely mother, sister and her little bunny. I feel really happy during these moments and honestly whenever you feel like this, it shows on the pictures too!

IMG_1781

IMG_1776

For this look I chose to be simple in wearing a pants and a top because of the floral kimono. I always wanted to have one but I found them quite expensive so I’m glad I stumbled on this one!

Black trousers are a blessing in disguise, I find it quite annoying when the black colour fades away whenever you wash it. With this faux leather washed look on the skinny I experience this problem less, hallelujah! I wore a white top with it because one it was hot that day and two black on black is always good but to change it once in a while is good too!

I like the shoes I’m wearing. The thick heel helps a lot while you walk and the bag is cute to wear with this floral printed kimono!

How would you wear a kimono Loves?

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 | Boyish Girl.

IMG_1347 IMG_1323 IMG_1325 IMG_1348

For this look I went a bit out of my comfort zone. This is not my everyday outfit but Fashion is supposed to be stepping out of your comfort zone, so I gave it a try.

I like it! Not only is the tomboy look chic, but also comfortable. Combining it with sweet colours as pink and white makes this look still feminine. The day I shot for this outfit was a sunny day but the wind was cold so I kept my oversized coat on.

This Charlie Chaplin look is common worn on the fashion streets and will be seen more, and I don’t mind! I like to wear my ‘’tap shoes’’ this is how I call them. The salmon light pink colour looks amazing with the brown shoe sole.

I think I have a bit of an obsession on the colour pink. I could not resist leaving the bag in the store. The golden detail makes the bag chic with an edgy twist. This kind of bag is very popular in the Netherlands. Mostly because it’s seen on many fashionistas all over the world!

Would you wear this look? And how would you wear it?

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 #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!

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!
