Walk on waves

I received them last week and already walked a lot of miles in these shoes. I wore them on a day of shopping in Knokke last week. And eventhough the have a wave-print on them, they feel like walking on clouds. And yes, I saw a lot of eyes going to my feet while wearing them, they are without doubt eye-catchers!
When we talk sneakers: my collection is growing each month and I like it. I used to be an all-heels kinda girl, but sometimes ones gotta be realistic. I can't walk in heels all day and why would you? I think we can all agree on the fact that when your'e out for some shopping you'd much rather wear sneakers instead of heels. And that's where my wave-shoes came in!
My next outfit with these babies is probably going to be in a skirt of dress, just to show you guys that the girly factor and the tough factor are going well together.
Today I pulled my denim top out of the closet to go with my wave-shoes. Ever since I saw it 3 years ago it has been a favorite piece in my wardrobe: the wide fit and the denim fabric make this top a little cutie.

Happy Wednesday, I'm off doing vacation-related stuff.
Today is the last day to enter the Laimbock giveaway, be quick about it! Ít will close tonight!

Watch the time

I never wore a lot of watches. I grey up in a timezone in which people had cellphones. The time was always with us, in our pockets. Cellphones were the new pocket-watches, in a way. So nowadays, people only wear watches for a couple of reasons, in my opinion:
- They refuse to accept technology and having a watch to check out the time is a way of ignoring the evolution and use of technology.
- I've you started to wear a watch pretty young, you can feel naked without it. A watch can feel like as if it is a part of you. 
- Simply because they love a watch as an accessory, a watch can 'make' an outfit. 

I recently found out about Cluse watches. A brand that sells watches for the right reasons: high quality, prices that match that quality, and pretty designs.
Wearing their watch made me actually rethink about why I don't wear watches that often. I chose a simple design: black leather strap and rose gold, it looked pretty classy with some small bracelets. What do you think?

Some highlights: later this week I will wear this watch with an outfit, so stay tuned for that. Annnndd: in collaboration with Cluse watches I will give away the same watch as this one!! That giveaway will start in about one week, are you excited yet?!
By the way: only two days for the Laimbock giveaway will close, enter here!
Happy Tuesday!

The beach

You can say whatever you want about this little country called Holland, but we do have our fair share of beaches! The aren't white sandy beaches, it's not bright blue water and we don't drink coconuts hanging from a hammock, but the beaches are kilometers long and the beachclub are all so trendy!
I enjoy going to the beach and last week I even did a little swim. And yes, it was very cold.. I hope to see a lot of beaches all over the world in the feature because - with the chance of sounding waaay too philosophical - they are a pretty nice appearance from what nature can give us!
There was a sunset not long ago after these pictures were taken and it was almost as if I was on a white sandy beach in Thailand.

About this look: I bought this yellow maxiskirt two years ago in New York and I never showed it on the blog before. I love the bright color and it looks like as if this skirt was made for windy days, because when the wind caught my skirt it flows like some sort of waterfall.
I kept it simple with a black top and my favorite shades of the moment. 
As you culd have seen on my Instagram I went to Knokke (Belgium) yesterday. These pics aren't from that beach but the beach in Knokke was surprisingly nice too!

The green suit

An item I saw and immediately wanted to buy. The fabric, the color, the straps on the back and ofcourse the fact that it is a jumpsuit.
I wore this green suit to a day of my lustrum on which we all had to dress up, drink champagne and watch a game of polo. 
There is still one look to show you from my 10-day lustrum, so stay tuned for that one! I also have a red dress from my gala to show you, but I'm not sure yet if I will because of the simplicity of the dress which only looks good with high heels.

The weather has been so good lately and today I will be off to the beach.
You can still win the leather Laimbock gloves by the way! The giveaway will be online for one week, so click here and enter quickly!

Purple leopard

Dresses. You don't see me wear them a lot. I do own a lot of them, but those are the classy cocktail ones, the ones you don't wear to go to the supermarket. This new one is actually one of the few daytime-dresses I own right now.
When ordering a dress like this, it can be a complete disaster or it can turn out the good way. The leopard print is a different leopard then all the others, with a color that used to be my favorite: purple. It turned out all good and I thought about styling this one up the easy way. Just some (very cool) cutout sunnies from Oasap and my Maison Martin Margiela x H&M wedges. I will probably still be in love with those when I'm 50. And about the sunnies, I already got a lot of compliments about it and Oasap is the one and only selling it, so what are you waiting for? Go, go, go!
This is the outfit I wore to a 'day with the family', I thought it was perfect for it! What do you think?

This is the first time I show you my ear-jewelry. I'm looking for a silver 'bar' just like the one I'm wearing, only shorter, to creat this look I showed you a while ago. You like it so far?

I'm off, don't forget to enter the Laimbock giveaway! Win yourself a pair of leather gloves!

Wave print

New in: these awesome blue and white wave-printed sneakers from Adidas.
Also known as the Adidas zx Flux sneakers, remeber I blogged about them in an earlier post?
I always find it hard to choose when it comes to picking a sneakers. There are so many different styles, colors & patterns. Pro0031, the store I got them from, has so many cool Flux sneakers and it was hard to make a choise. But in the end it came down to only two: the leopard ones and the wave ones. Then I asked myself the question: who owns wave-printed sneakers? Not so many people, I can imagine. And now I'm the proud owner.
I can't wait to style these. I can see myself wearing these with a skinny jeans, but also with some girly skirt. The shoes came with two kinds of laces, black and white. Which do you like better?

'Play' suit

I loooove myself a jumpsuit. My closet is full with them. Or should I say playsuit, since the short versions of the jumpsuit are called that way.
Printed playsuits, ruffled playsuits, you name it and I have it. This all white one is the latest addition to my wardrobe, specially bought for the opening party of my lustrum. Theme: white.
And unfortunately I won't be wearing heels with it (you should agree, that would look waaaay hotter, right?) but since this playsuit is literally a 'play' suit, I figured some flats won't look horrible either. So here I am, showing off this twirly little white thing with an extra low back.

I'm writing this post on a very rainy Wednesday afternoon, hoping it will be all sunny next week.
I'm still a little behind on the 'to do'-list and I want it all to be done in time. The chores - money matters & school stuff - aren't that nice, but that is kind of the whole reason I keep pushing them away, I guess.

Same but different

Shorts and crop tops, that's all we need these days.
Not too cropped, we should still dare to walk the streets, but add a highwaisted denim shorts and it's all good. I remember I shot an outfit a lot like this one at the same spot, but today I added some white and just those little details make this look a total different one.

Amsterdam Fashion week kicked of the other day and I'm so bummed I can't attend any show. I should not complain because I have a pretty fun 2 weeks ahead of me, but still, those fashion weeks are always happening when I'm not available to go see some fashion.

From now on I will post some outfits related to the upcoming parties from my lustrum. I will wear dresses, jumpsuits & shorts, stay tuned to see what I'll wear the next 10 days.
Also, there is a new giveaway online. You can win a pair of leather Laimbock gloves, go check it out, click here!
