I have yet another lookbook from Zara to show to you guys, since lookbooks are fun. This time it's from the TRF line from Zara. Again, you see a lot of pastel colors, white and the line looks more sporty chic. Even though you see very cute dresses as well.

Sharing your looks online is nothing new. We, fashionbloggers and fashion enthusiast, do it through blogging, Lookbook, Chictopia and some many other sites. A while ago I discovered Famest, a Belgium based corporation and I really wanted to share this great site with you guys. What's the difference with Lookbook and Chictopia? It's more easy to get points even if you don't have a lot of followers (yet). Which I really appreciate, because we all have to start at the beginning.

Lately I've bought/ordered a few shorts, faux leather, high waisted and with prints. Pants with prints have been hot for a while now and so do shorts. I'm showing a couple of shorts with prints, which are perfect for warm spring and summer days.
€ 19,99 at Mango

I've been saying for months I wanted to go shopping again. I really wanted to go to Primark, but I might have to wait a little bit longer. The more fun it will be when I actually go, right? Anyway, I went to a small town nearby my home. There is a H & M and I bought some items so I was quite happy. Until I spilled Coca Cola over my outfit I was wearing and over my Roshe Run. I don't think you can see any stains on my sneakers, but you could definitely see one on my T-shirt. And it was quite cold for wet pants. But overall, it was a good day!

It's funny, a couple years back I didn't have much skirts, dresses or shorts. Now I have quite the collection, but there is always room for more. That's why I decided to order this lovely summer short from H & M for only € 14,95.
A movie again, bowling with colleagues and beautiful weather. This was a relaxed week and I didn't do much schoolwork this week. I'm gonna work extra hard this week though.

I posted this skort last week on my blog. The skort has been hot for a few years now. It's a short that looks like a skirt. I must say that I'm warming up to the skort. I thought it was a weird clothing item, but now I really like it. At first I thought it was too short, but since it's a short I don't really mind. I personally don't like very short skirts.
This skort is € 19,95 at H & M and almost sold out in every size.

I wanted to post some summer inspiration for festivals and just plain summery days. They're perhaps not the most spectacular, but I could see myself wearing these outfits. Especially since the temperature has been awesome lately. Staring at summer outfits just makes me happy, so I thought why not share it?

I ordered a black and a blue jumpsuit at H & M and I really wanted to receive the items at the same time. Unfortunately I wasn't paying attention one day and H & M decided to deliver the black jumpsuit. The blue one will come in June. I really wanted to compare them, but in the end it wasn't necessary. This one looks too big and just didn't feel right. It's € 34,95 at H & M.

As someone who regularly checks several websites (especially H & M) for the sale, I always find it exciting to discover new items. Especially if the particular clothing piece is nice, as well as the price. The items I ordered at H & M aren't new in the sale, but they were sold out most of the time.
This cute T-shirt with polkadot was only € 5 instead of € 9,95. It has lace and polkadot, so naturally I had to order it.

Because shoes are amazing and I want to buy new shoes and I really want to buy sandals. That is why I made this post, which I think is a great reason. Have you bought some great sandals recently? I really like wedges or regular sandals. I also love sandals with fringes.

Wow, I wrote how awful the weather was in week 19 and this week was completely different. The weather was amazing, especially at the end of the week. It's so awesome to wear all my summer items: the dresses, shorts, skirts, top and T-shirts. Sure, I already wore some summery items. But not a lot and sometimes it was still a little bit chilly. But not anymore this week!

It's been a while since I did a post about this subject and since H & M added new clothes to the webshop, it was about time! This post also reminds me that I need to go shopping asap. The last time was in Utrecht. Way too long ago.

Toshop has 30 % discount on selected items. Topshop calls it seasonal offers, but to me it sounds like a late mid season sale. As usual, I selected some items I like. There isn't a lot, since there aren't that many items with the seasonal discount.
Now € 20,-, originally € 26,-

I have no idea who Rebecca Stella is, but apparently she teamed up with Nelly. After a quick Google search and some Wikipedia I learned she's a blogger. She is also an Swedish singer, designer and a glamour model. She has more viewers on her blog than mine, so perhaps she is doing something right. Judging on her lookbook for Nelly, I'm not really a fan of her style. Why am I showing it either way? Because perhaps you might like it.

I saw the mom jeans in the Zara lookbook I posted in March. I didn't think it would catch on, at least I hoped not. I feel like they're unflattering. Boyfriend jeans can be unflattering, especially if you're short like me. But with heels they look so much better. Perhaps it might be the same with the mom jeans, but I'm still not sure of them. Why I'm writing about them now? Since apparently H & M has added mom jeans to their collection as well. So it might become a trend. If you're still wondering what the eff mom jeans are, here it is per Wikipedia: a type of jeans which are seen as unfashionable and unflattering. The jeans were quite popular until the mid 90's.

There are Roshe Runs and there are slip ons. Nike now combined the two and what do you get? The Nike Roshe Run slip. I'm not sure what to think. They look great, but the hook at the back is a bit weird. I'm also not sure how they would fit. Slip ons have to be a bit tighter than regular shoes, but you might also want some space at your feet. I do love the first shoe, because of the color.

Here is the lookbook from Mango of May 2014. If I'm not mistaken, most if not all, the clothes are from the collection Minimal Cut which I showed in this lookbook of the summer catalogue. So don't expect tropical prints or bright colors. It's mostly black and white and pastel. I think this lookbook and the clothes aren't the most exciting, but perhaps they look better in the store.

The weather was like the worst this week. Not that it was snowing, but just rain for so many days I didn't think it would stop. It wasn't raining the whole week, but pretty much half of it. Aside from the rain, my social life was back to normal! Finally, after doing no fun stuff because of school, I decided to meet my friends again. Also, so very sorry about the shitty quality of the last photos. Every Monday I want to post my ootw, which I didn't manage in the past. For the last few weeks, it went perfectly well. I don't shoot my ootw every day, sometimes I have to shoot three outfits on a day because I didn't have enough time on the day itself or the weather was awful. This time the weather has been awful and the batteries decided to die. I always hate that. But I'm beginning with the pictures which did turn out good.

While I was busy searching for a cute dress for the wedding of my big sister, I was searching for something else for quite some time. I have been searching for over two years for a new black bag. I'm apparently really picky. I want a bag that's not too expensive (under € 50,-), it has to be a shoulder bag with a extra long handle. It has to be black, since that goes with everything I don't like to have many bags. I carry a lot of stuff in my bag and putting it in a different bag every day sounds like way too much effort. The bag also needs to be big, has to have a zipper and a extra compartment for my phone.
I yet have found the perfect bag, but of course I'll continue searching. Most bags like these (H & M, € 19,95) have a handle that's too short. I prefer shoulder bags. Did you ever look for ages for something you wanted?

We have the most dreadful weather in the Netherlands at the moment and it might stay here until Wednesday! That's why today (and yesterday, every rain, drowsy, fall and winter day) is perfect for the high summer lookbook 2014 from Topshop. The lookbook exists out of the following collection: City Tribes (tribal prints), Flower Garden (floral prints), Folk (hippy like), Pacific Life (Hawaii inspired) and White Out (lots of white).

I got such nice comments after this post, that I thought why not post another one. Especially since I feel interior decorating is becoming more and more sensitive to (fashion) trends. We like to change things up and that doesn't mean we're change our whole interior every month. No, we just change the pillows on the couch or buy some new lamps or a new vase. Lately I also noticed that some trends in the fashion world also pop up in the interior world. And with that I think I justified this post. These pictures are from H & M and are from the fall collection 0f 2014. Yes, we're heading to the fall (fashion collections, that is) even though the summer hasn't started. We regular folks can still look forward to the summer. And we can also think about how to decorate our interior (in the fall). Let's just look at the pictures!

I must say Nike delivers really fast. I ordered my Roshe Run a half a size bigger yesterday and they were delivered super quick. I can always appreciate that in a store. I'm so happy the size 38 is good. They're certainly not too wide, because my toes still pres against the mesh but that's normal with these sneakers. It's just the right size. And they're super comfy. I love the sole.

Sarenza is having a mid season sale. Which means a lot of shoes and other things are priced of. Sometimes items are 50 % cheaper. Among the brands which have items on sale at Sarenza, are Adidas, Converse, Nike, Vans and so many more. I selected a few shoes below € 50,-.
Hunter boots now € 49,-, originally 98,-. Perfect for festivals!

The Met Gala always brings out the wackiest outfits which is always fun to look at. In between the madness I saw some beautiful dresses. But mostly crazy ones. There is always a theme and I'm a little bit fuzzy why, since most celebs don't even bother with the theme. The theme: White Tie And Decorations, it was an ode to Anglo-American designer Charles James. Warning: loads of pictures ahead!
My pink Nike Roshe Run came in today. They're so comfortable and I want to keep them so badly, but I'm gonna order them half a size bigger. I'm so afraid the mesh from the front will rip if I keep this size. I ordered them in 37,5 because I usually wear sneakers in 37 or 38. I prefer 38 lately, because then my feet are able to breathe a little bit. My feet usually look big with 38, even though it's not a big size at all. I tried the Roshe Run in 37,5 a few weeks back and it was a good fit, but even than I was wondering whether I should try a 38. I didn't and I regret it. I did ask for a 38 as well, but I didn't got one. I do love the color of this pair I ordered and they were super comfortable, but I'm just not sure about the mesh. It would be such a shame if it ripped.

It's the fifth month already. I swear, this year we're just skipping weeks right? Because there is no way last week was week 18 already.

I'm sure you already saw the pictures of Gisele Bündchen for H & M, but for those who didn't, I wanted to share them. These pictures are for the summer campaign. Gisele also covered the song Heart of Glass from Blondie. By downloading the song you support UNICEF.

Topshop is coming to the Netherlands.You can already buy clothes from the webshop on this lovely thing called internet but probably late 2014 (so basically this year) we can do some live shopping in a Topshop store as well. I'm excited because I totally want to see the store even though I've never bought something from the store itself. Forever 21 recently launched a store in the Netherlands so I guess we're being discovered by big brands? Hooray! Speaking about Topshop, the Kate Moss collection is doing really well. Some of the pieces are already sold out. I won't be surprised if she might do another collection with the store in the future.
Do you have a Topshop store in your country? If so, do you like the store? If you don't, would you like to have one?

So I posted the lookbook with Daria Werbowy for Mango before, but I found some lovely pictures at Mango but without Daria Werbowy. It's divided in three collections Jungle Hut (filled with graphic prints and darker colors), Minimal Cuts (filled with white, blue and pastel colors and no fuss, no wuss clothing) and Surfer Girl (which is filled with clothes perfect for the beach, for over your bikini). The titles basically explains them self I think.
I mentioned before that I really wanted to buy the Nike Roshe Run sneakers. I tried them on when shopping, but I needed some time to think about it because they were € 95,-. I normally don't buy shoes for that price. I usually buy my shoes at Van Haren which has reasonable priced shoes. Now I know the Roshe Run are sneakers and they're from Nike, but still € 95,- is quite a lot of money.
So imagine my happiness when I saw these sneakers on sale for € 62,99 on the Nike webshop. They're normally € 90,- and most sizes are already sold out but mine was still available. I ordered them in size 37,5 which I tried in the store and the size was good. I sometimes buy sneakers and boots in size 38 so my toes have a lot of space. But I think size 37,5 will be fine. At least I hope so...

Yes, yes, yes! I found it, I found it. You have no idea how happy I am to say I finally found the dress. I know it something so small, but with all this schoolwork it just makes me a very happy person. A very dramatic statement and very exaggerated but I love exaggerating. I take it to a whole new level.
