Double fur

My oh my, the cold days are finally here. The heater must be turned on and I'm constantely in the need of hot jugs & some jasmin flavoured green tea. Don't get me wrong, I like the cold days and all the fuzzyness they bring, but without the jasmin tea or this new furry coat from The Sting, I simply won't survive.

Faux furs aren't going anywhere this fall, their in for the stay. And as you might have already noticed, I'm a big fan of faux furs. Huge fan. With other words: fur is always a good idea.
I styled today's coat with my striped midi dress, shiny black boots and some more... fur.
As I said before, this is my first plain black furry coat, and that brings a lot of oppertunities. It's an easy piece to style and because the coat is already black, don't be afraid to just add a bright color.

Cheers to the freakin' weekend!

New stuff

Sometimes, I find myself getting dressed to go into town because I need to buy a new notebook - for example - only to come home with several shoppingbags, filled with new stuff.. Yes, a girl needs to shop every now and then. Here's what I got!

The coat
I told you in this post, I was going to get myself more fur for the upcoming wintermonths. And I did. A black faux fur is now added to the family. Strange thing, I did not yet own a plain black one, only blue & ombre grey. I found this one at The Sting, they have a very nice collection of wintercoats!
I got it a few sizes too big so that the fit would be a bit oversized. Plus, big winterknits should fit underneath!

The boots
I can store these under the category 'best buy'. I found these burgundy booties at Zara, for only 20 euros! Burgundy is thé color for the cold months, so my thoughts were: mine, mine, mine!
I like that they have a black detail at the zipper, and also the heel isn't that high so I can walk in these for hours!

Let me know what your thoughts are about these new items!

Soft colors

Fall is here. The cold and grey days have landed and as the shivery that I am I immediately ordered a big cozy knit some weeks ago. Without noticing that it was still officially summer when ordering a actual winter knit. 
I found this one at Oasap. They have a lottttt to choose from, so much that it made internet-shopping a bit difficult. I choose the babyblue color because blue is without doubt my favorite color, and with this particular 'popcorn' knit it seemed like the perfect color for it. 

I liked mixing soft colors in this outfit, because sometimes you just can't add a 'hard' color all the sudden. In this case, it needed to stay soft, that's why all the grey and babypink is present!
Pastels aren't over yet, and I'm glad about that!   


Due to rain and a battery failure, these are the pics you have to make do with.
Hope you still like them though! Happy Tuesday!

Emerald & fur

Two favorites of mine are back this Fall: emerald green & faux furs!
And I can't be more excited, because there was a lot of fun stuff on the runway to be seen when designers showed their Fall/Winter collection last January.

Emerald green
My absolute favorite color, together with that bright electric blue: emerald green. That color just screams darkness, magic and mysterious-ness. Not that those words define me, but, well, you get my point! On my emerald-green-wishlist: this green leather pants from Zara and this oversized knit from & Other Stories. Who will I see at the opening in Amsterdam this Friday?

Faux fur
Fur coats, fur gilets, fur skirts, even furry shoes. I can't have enough fur and I will probably add another faux fur to my collection this Fall. It just makes every outfit a bit more edgy, and I happen to like edgy. When you decide it's just a denim-plus-grey-sweater-kinda-day, a bright blue faux fur coat will do the trick, no doubt about that!
On my faux-fur-wishlist: this white/grey furry scarf from Zara and this AWESOME pink coat from Whistles. Not together though.. O and with that last one I can also cross the pastel trend of my list!

What do you think about these trends?

Silhouette

Helloo, hellooo people of the good life.
Sorry for the absence on the blog the past week, sometimes getting some schoolwork done is necessary too! So, what's new?
This silky blazer is. Oh, and also the Ray-Ban Aviator sunnies, both bought in Amsterdam last week. Amsterdam is always a good idea, and most of the time I'm not going home empty handed!
I'm glad I added this blazer to the family, it has the perfect silhouette, eventhough I bought it - deliberately - in a size L. You know me and oversized.
I added some mesh and a paint-spotted jeans to the whole look, I wanted to bring out the fun of this 'different but basic' blazer.
So, what do you think about this latest addition? More new stuff is yet to come on the blog, stay tuned for that! Sorry for the overkill of pictures, btw..

For the Dutchies:
Speaking about denim, The Sting geeft in november een groot feest. Jij maakt kans op vip tickets, een jaar lang gratis jeans en een outfit twv 100 voor de avond! Ga snel naar de site!

The Eye Wish Opticiens show

A few weeks ago I attended the first 'eyewear fashion show' - brillenmodeshow - ever. It was hosted by Eye wish Opticiens, a known optician in this little country. And the best part? It was held in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam!  I've never been there after it was renovated last year and it was pretty awesome, such a old but pretty building!
It all started with some drinks and snacks and after a while the show started. May-Britt Mobach was the host of the evening, and although she did a good job, my attention was more drawn towards here shoes, so cool! Afterwards all guests could enjoy several workshops.
I did went home with a goodiebag and with a big thanks to Eye Wish Opticiens I now finally own a classic Ray-Ban aviator, sunnies I've wanted for ages!

Boohoo brown

My third and final look from the 3-ways-to-wear trilogy. What it is all about? These black Chelsea boots from Invito!
Today I styled them the girly way by adding a dress. Yes, my second look contained a dress too, and it's also the second time I'm wearing brown in an outfit, because so I did in the first look. If you are familiar with my history of outfits you'd probably know that I don't wear brown that often. Never, actually. It's a bit of a mommy-color, if you ask me.
Then again, it cán look very classy/playfull/boohoo-like, so why the hell not?
These shots were taken when the sun was still out. I'm currently curled up in a wool blanket with some hot tea, no more bare legs for me. 

Did I convince you to buy these amazing chelsea boots that pretty much go with everything?
And which of the three looks is your favorite? Let me know!
Happy weekend!

Rocker

The second look for my 3-ways-to-wear with the Invito Chelsea boots.
Actually, each outfit includes one black item, besides the key-item: the boots. I wanted to make 3 different looks, as is also the intention of a 3-ways to wear.
The first look was kind of an edgy look with leather and leopard, this second look is more rock: a leather jacket, the girly dress, some studs, and ofcourse the Chelsea's. They literally go with anything. Only last week, I wore them going to the market to get flowers, when I went for a little shopping spree - and got nothing, by the way - and for the occasional babysitting they fit just right too. Convenient, right: comfy and rock?

So, what about look two?
