Fashion #OOTD | Something Blue, Something French & Pink Hot Chocolate!

If you follow me on my Instagram Loves, you would know I went with my blogging gal EsraElif.com shooting again. We had so much fun! We went to a cute café in Utrecht, the Netherlands, called Frenchie Café. The place is so Instagram worthy! Marble tables, golden cutlery and a long pink sofa, I loved every bit of it! And the food…! Loves, I was in heaven. Pink hot chocolate and American pancakes with fruits and maple syrup. Just yum!

While I was at it, I also took pictures for my photography account on Instagram. I love the architecture of the buildings and the houses in Utrecht. They are so burgundian and picturesque. I felt like I was wandering in another century. I took pictures of the Domtoren and the Pandhof garden. It was so very nice to see! Keep my Instagram on your mind Loves, I will upload those pictures very soon. Pinky promise!

I don’t wear a lot of dresses and when I saw the photos while uploading on my laptop, I thought by myself that I should wear them more often! First, I love the blue color, all shades of blue by the way. Second, the dress feels so soft that it falls like a feather over my body. It is very light weighted that it doesn’t bother me while walking or sitting. Very comfortable! I combined it with a knee long coat. I prefer that length or longer when I wear a long dress.

I can be so happy when it comes to boots. Because of the block heels are the boots made for walking. However, they are new, I wore them for the first time during the shooting. Ouch! What we bloggers do for our blog. I like that it looks like it falls from my legs, it makes the boots edgy and it suit perfectly under a dress or skirt.

It was a very long time since I wore long earrings. For years I wore just stud earrings because it accentuates my jawline. Same goes for wearing dresses, I should wear long earrings more! If you know me Loves, I have a bag addiction. When I saw the bag, I was hooked. I love the suede color and that its big enough to put my laptop in for college. It does not have the same color as my boots, but hey…Not everything needs to be perfect. Especially with an outfit!

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?

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 | 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 #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 #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 – 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 | Shoe-A-Holic!

IMG_3466

IMG_3469

In my previous #ootd I told you Loves I threw a glimpse at my shoes to wear with the outfit I posted. Now I’m giving you a look at my shoe collection! I’m having quite an addiction and collected over the year’s shoes. I have shoes that are more than five years old! Having lots of shoes is an advantage since you can often change with your outfit or even just with your own mood. Shoes come in many colours, shapes and sizes so every woman or man will find their dream pair. Besides clothing sizes changes a lot but feet sizes will always remain the same, right Loves?

Let me start with my black coloured shoes. As you can see, I have many ankle boots. I think it is because I prefer them the most. That’s the beauty of shoes; I have from flat soles to heels and simple to detail. Same goes with my brown coloured shoes. Wearing Uggs can be sometimes a relieve, especially in the winter month!

IMG_3470

IMG_3472

Shoes are for all occasions. I can be so happy with just watching them displayed in my closet just because the heels are too high for wearing it all day. I keep this torture for special day’s hihi…

IMG_3476

IMG_3480

Speaking about occasions, Summer shoes or Moroccan loafers, do I need to say more? And I even did not show you my whole collection of it. Ballerinas, sandals and slippers are during Summer nice to wear. Imagine wiggling your nail polished toes in them!

Which pair do you like Loves?

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..

 

IMG_3372

IMG_3355

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.

What do you think Loves?

Beauty Review | MAC Soft & Gentle.

IMG_3320

IMG_3321

IMG_3322

My first MAC gem is a fact and I’m in love! You know me Loves; shimmery and shiny make-up is my cup of tea. Many bloggers are very enthusiastic about the brand MAC and I’ve read many reviews that have won me over to buy and try it for myself. I don’t regret it!

I roamed the store like I was a kid in a candy store, so many beautiful things that I couldn’t choose! Lipsticks, foundations, blushes caught truly my eye. Eventually it became a highlighter that is well known.

IMG_3323

IMG_3325

IMG_3330

Soft & Gentle is a luxurious powder with 77-Mineral Complex that adds highlights to the face and body. You can apply it on the parts of your face like your cheeks, cheekbones, and the tip of your nose. Think about the strobing technique. Since you can also apply it on your body, how about a little swoop with your brush on your collarbones?

Although the package looks simple yet chic, it suits MAC. With limited editions and collaborations with artists the package will be adjusted. It makes me only more excited about it!

IMG_3324

IMG_3333

IMG_3326

What I also like is that it gives a natural glow on your face. I applied it on my face with a strobing technique and although you cannot see it well on the pictures because of natural light it gave my face an open look.

What do you think about this highlighter Loves?

Event Report | New Collections & Brands. MooiPR.

IMG_2673

I was invited to MooiPr Happy Day where I got introduced to new collections and brands. If you follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (SaidaSnaps) you would see a glimpse of the beautiful new collections of Swarovski, Omoda, Silhouette, OPI & Mi Moneda. I was truly impressed by Swarovski from the moment I walked in! The sparkles of the crystal made me feel like a kid in a candy store. So many colours! I love it!

Swarovski.

Not only is Swarovski well known for their crystals but also till today a family company run by 5th generation family members! Such a beautiful loyalty. Their new collection is inspired by the many coral reefs. You would see different colours than you used to see from Swarovski. The colours like sea blue, golden brown and sweet rose pearls are eye candy’s.

Atelier Swarovski is known of their high fashion collections. They collaborated with Miranda Kerr and H&M and having new collaborations with Jean Paul Gaultier and Frederikson Stallard. I know Jean Paul Gaultier as a designer who focusses on the beauty of imperfections. You can see this too in the collection with Swarovski. The golden brown necklaces have imperfect crystals that I truly like. It shows me that imperfections are beautiful too! Frederikson Stallard wanted to show with their Swarovski collection that you should protect the things you truly love. It is shown at their design. The crystals are saved in a ‘’cage’’. What a beautiful thought.

IMG_2689

Mi Moneda.

Mi Moneda “My Coin” in Spanish is a luxurious brand inspired by vintage coins that creates a spiritual sense. You can change the coin to your own feeling and thoughts! Your own personalized necklace, who doesn’t what like that? Now they introduced the changeable bar necklace “Take What You Need’’. Designer Michelle got inspired by women all over the world. Talking about women empowering! The story behind it is mainly to make you feel comfortable in your own life. To give you a small reminder that everything is going to be alright because we all worry about the little things in life. This bar necklace is very stylish and fashionable! The design is minimalistic and can be chosen in three colours. Silver, gold and rose gold. The colours of this autumn! The changeable bar can be changed for a bar already designed by Take What You Need or you can personalize your own bar. Isn’t that amazing?

IMG_2686

Silhouette.

Authentic eyewear since 1964, Austrian made. The eyewear is based on beauty and harmony. The most demanding requirements in terms of design are to let the individuality of the wearer shine. The designs are sleek and timeless. What impressed me the most is the frame of the glasses. It is weightless! Whenever you put it on you feel that you have no glasses on at all. And with the many designs there is something for everyone.

O.P.I.

The perfect nail polish to every woman. They focus on beautiful coloured fingernails and taking care of them. Using a base coat and a top coat after you use the colour of your choice is very important. O.P.I. is a professional nail care industry that is committed to give their users safety and innovation. The brand is also well known of their exceptional formula, fashionable colours and iconic names! Did you see the light of their Starlight Collection? Beautiful!

IMG_2684

Omoda.

Shoes! Shoes! Shoes! My guilty pleasure. Omoda gave me the chills! What more do I have to say?

IMG_2678

Which collection do you love Loves?

 

Fashion #OOTD | Sweet Pink.

IMG_2624

Who likes pink? I do! I feel very comfortable when I wear something in the colour pink. I think it’s because I see the colour pink as something sweet, cute and elegant. It probably sounds crazy in your ears but it is just beautiful colour! Even all the shades of pink are beautiful. Not only in clothing but also in décor; like candles, vases etc. And how about nail polish? Lingerie? Perfume? I think it is just the woman in me…Hihi.

When I was younger I hated turtleneck sweaters! I would not wear them; I even cannot look at them! It looked so hideous on others and on me. You know what they say; old fashion always comes back so I took the opportunity and bought one. What was I thinking!? They are so pretty! I love them now. It gives you warmth, it looks elegant especially when you put your hair up and it comes with many colours and of course in different versions. What more could I wish for?

What also is happening in fashion is sleeveless gilets, (trench) coats and blazers. You either love or hate it. The woolen gilet I’m wearing, I have it quite a while now and to be honest I don’t wear it a lot because I would not wear something like that daily. Once in a while will do just fine for me.

Pink shoes! Who would ever think that I’m going to wear one? I love that it looks chic and boyish at the same time. Weird can be sometimes good too. That is what I thought when I saw this bag on the shelf at the Guess store. A mix match of the same colour looks so edgy, a unique item in your own closet.

What do you think about turtleneck sweaters and sleeveless items Loves?

Fashion #OOTD | Colourful Autumn.

IMG_2463

IMG_2461

The only thing I like about autumn is the warmth that it brings. Candles flicker romantic, fuzzy socks and pumpkin spiced sweets. I don’t know about you Loves but I automatically change my wardrobe and outfits into autumn proof.

I like the dark red colour of my blazer and the details on the sleeve. It makes me feel retro! I wore it with my peplum top I had hidden for a while in my closet. It didn’t fit me back then. If you follow me on Instagram you would know I’m taking more care of my body. I started to hit the gym and eat healthier, I lost already 4 kilos! I’m happy and determined to lose more weight. Thumbs up for me!

IMG_2467

IMG_2478

Back into my OOTD. The denim jean I wore is a cigar fit. I like the way how it fits on my body. It is slightly different from skinny jeans because of the leg opening. I just feel more comfy in it. Very feminine with my peplum top! The buttons on the back and the long part of the top is just a surprise whenever you see the back.

Shoes-bag-top match! I love my shoes, the details on it is edgy, perfect when I combined it with my chic bucket bag. I toned down with jewellery. I wore only my pearl dots and an ear cuff. Chic X Edgy!

Fashion Collab | Leren Connor Goes Festival Wear.

Leren Connor, she surprised me again! Her artistic expression I can see again in her festival collection. Her originality and attention to detail proves to be her trademark which I truly appreciate. When I see this collection the first thing that comes to my mind is happiness. The typical festival mood laid back and relaxed. Skirts from strips of fabric, tulle and crop tops anything goes!

”Over the last few months, Leren Connor and the team have taken a dramatic turn on the route to achieving their goals through the fashion industry and now the Festival scene.

This year LerenHQ Has spent a lot of time getting to know the Comic Convention industry which has also enticed the start of costume design through both Leren Connor and GYGO (get your geek on) the sister brand. Taking a step back from usual routine and embarking on a new path this small independent label has been making some big steps in all the right places.

So much has changed and due to this the team is thoroughly excited about the next year to come. Back in 2012 Leren attended her 1st Festival “Wilderness” as a trader, from this the team has been eager to get stuck in with the festival scene, this year it happened. At the end of August this label travelled down south to attend Into the Wild Festival, with the designs selling like hot cakes Leren is even more determined to get the Festival wear out there. Festivals are a great way to express costume design as well which is why it will also be a great marketing place for GYGO the sister brand which specializes in geek wear and costume design.

80% of what this label does is recycled and upcycled, the free fabric skirts and headbands you see are made from all the scraps collected in the Leren Connor studio.”

(Pictures originally from Leren Connor.)

Her hold on environmentally friendly design also applies to this collection and that makes it yet again unique. You can see that she loves what she makes and it also radiates from her collections.

The growth she is experiencing is noticed. Hard work really pays off. Her devotion will bring her to high places that she deserves. We will hear from her again!

Do you love this collection as much as I do?

Fashion #OOTD | White Tee & Denim Wash.

IMG_2203

IMG_2238

IMG_2239

Dressing simple can be so satisfying. I would parade around in just a tee and denim jean every second of the year.

As you all know Loves, I’m on holiday to Morocco and if you ever visited this beautiful country you would know how the weather feels. As much I adore Summer and would stay outside for the whole day, it is just not possible with this kind off heat in Morocco. Sometimes it is 45 degrees outside! I’m not even able to open my eyes because of the sun that shines so bright.

Then came white tees! They are perfect for this kind off heat. Because it’s white and the fabric is cotton you won’t ‘’absorb’’ the sunbeams. I wore with it a high waist denim jean. You either love or hate this kind of jeans, especially because it is denim washed. Normally I won’t wear this kind of denim but this time I said to myself why not?

The first time I wore these slippers I felt a bit manly, to be honest. I would not buy them in the first place if I didn’t know I would walk in them like I’m walking barefoot. Because of the shape of the sole you can walk on paths that are not from tarmac. Perfect for long walks in Morocco!

To finish my OOTD, I kept my accessories simple too. I love the edginess of my clutch, the classiness of my watch and the details of my glasses!

What do you think about it Loves?

I’m in my hometown! In fact these pictures are taken in front of my home. I live in Oujda (pronounce: wousda). The place to be every Summer!

I must say I felt a little bit uncomfortable while shooting for this OOTD. Not only was the lens of the camera focused on me but also a lot of eyes. And because of it I had many uncomfortable looking pictures and a lot of tripping; but hea, all for the perfect shot!

I’m wearing a loose fit pants. It’s such a dream come true wearing one during Summer, especially in Morocco. When I wore them I felt like princess Jasmine from Aladdin. Ok, I’m exaggerating but you know what I mean hihi…

I’m lately combining colours with other colours. I’ve noticed that I’m crawling out of my shell; normally you won’t see me in colourful pieces. To still keep the tone down I wore a navy blue top to accentuate the pink. To me it would be a mix match of colours if I combine bright colours with bright colours.

The ones who know me, knows that I pledge for good accessories. When I saw these cobalt blue plateau shoes I had to have it! The colour is just beautiful and because of the plateau soles they walk terrific!

I finished it off with arm candy and a clutch. What can I say about them? Except they make my OOTD complete!

What do you think Loves?

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 | 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!

Fashion #OOTD | Those Fashionable Comfy Days.

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 #OOTD | Hello Autumn!

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…!
