It was super foggy on Sunday but that gave the pictures an super spooky vibe. Funny, because it was the day after Halloween. I didn't celebrate Halloween though. Never have and it wasn't that big in the Netherlands until the last couple of years. So no Halloween outfits in this post. I also only have 3 outfits to show. But better than none right?

I'm having a scarf obsession at the moment. Which is great, since the weather in the Netherlands can be very cold. So it's nice to have a big scarf you can wrap yourself in and stay warm. Since the last two, three years big scarves are hot. Which I love, because I hate the cold. So I bought a lot of scarves lately (some of them are more appropriate for fall though). Even though I already owned a lot of scarves which I still love. I'm still crazy about my Aztec scarfs from H & M. Like this brown one and this white one from H & M
(I can't believe it was two years ago I ordered the brown one and a year ago I ordered the white one). They're still top favorites with cold weather. But I gotta admit, when I spotted these ones I was like: I want!

I haven't post ootw's in a while, but I still made pictures most of the times. So I will be uploading these pictures asap. Meanwhile, I was browsing through my ootw's from last year and that's so much fun. I don't think my style has really changed. I see a lot of items and combinations I want to wear again. I have so many dresses and skirts I haven't worn this year, such a shame.

So yeah, I have been MIA (Missing In Action) for a while now. Sorry! I just have no inspiration anymore. I'm really trying to get my inspiration back though. When I blogged at the beginning of this year, I blogged every day. I don't think I will be blogging every day, but I really want to blog several times a week.

There was a big storm on last Saturday and you could still see tree branches everywhere in my neighbourhood. It was a big summer storm. The weather was pretty good this week though. Quite warm, even though there was a lot of rain as well. It was again with a lot of work, but I also went shopping on Thursday!
Saturday, August 1, 2015
Instead of a post with the newest article from H & M, I made a post about my wishlist from H & M. I wouldn't mind if some, if not all, of these items would end up in my closet. I can't wait to visit in H & M again! P.S. as usual, it's a pretty big wishlist. Whoops!

Model Gigi Hadid is the new face for Topshop. She is the new face of the Autumn/Winter Collection 2015. This collection will be sold from August 20. While new collections are always exciting, I'm so not in the mood for fall. And based on this collection, I feel like Topshop isn't ready for fall either. I always wonder why a lot of fashion brands still show mostly summer clothes in their fall collection. When most of the time during fall, it's colder than during summer.

I ordered two dresses at C & A (different sizes) and kept two, one I didn't even order! My mom ordered two dresses (different sizes) as well. She didn't like the dress, but I did so I kept that one. It might be strange to some of you, wearing a dress your mother liked. But honestly my mom has an amazing fashion sense. And the dress is just amazing. But I want to show you the black dress first.
Sunday, July 19, 2015
I finally ordered something online again. I can't lie, I have done a lot of shopping this year, but it was mostly the old fashion way. I just bought it in stores rather than ordering stuff online. I sometimes have phases like that. I also was kinda disappointed by the H & M sale. I checked other online sales from stores as well but I didn't like the items enough to order it. Until I spotted this dress at C & A.
Friday, July 3, 2015
Crazy right? Shopping with this weather? It's around 30 degrees, which is insanely hot for the Netherlands. So flowy dresses, skirts, shorts and summery tops are everywhere. And even then you're still sweating. I needed some basic tops to go with summer shorts. I bought this white basic top at C & A for € 4,50.
Thursday, July 2, 2015
It was hot, hot, hot today! And I went shopping. Heat and shopping isn't the ideal combination. Since changing clothes all the time gets pretty warm. I did visit clothes stores, but I also went to a shoe store: Scapino. Changing shoes takes less effort than changing ten different pants.

I can't believe week 26 has come and gone. The longest day has passed. And these first six months have gone so quickly as well. I can't believe we already passed the first half of 2015. It feels like the year just started, but it's everything but! This week I worked a lot again. I don't mind, but it feels repetitive writing it lol. But that's life! Besides working, I went to Jurassic World again. No regrets, the movie was still amazing the second time. I can't wait for part 2/5 (since it's technically a squeal to the Jurassic Park series). And these are the outfits I wore this week.

Buying clothes or shoes in one season (like, say, summer) while they're actually more appropriate for the opposite season (like winter) is kinda my speciality. I do it so many times, I lost track. It can be kinda annoying, since I like to wear new items asap. But when they belong to the opposite season it's kind of hard. It's either too warm or too cold. At the moment, these ankle boots are too warm. But on the bright side, it's usually not that warm in the Netherlands. We normally don't have a lot of days where it's hot. And ankle boots are certainly suitable for fall and colder summer days. Plus, fall will come soon enough (ugh). What was I talking about? Oh right, my new ankle boots!

Today is the day summer officially started. I don't know how the weather is in other countries, but the spring in the Netherlands has been absolutely horrible. So why not show a sunny lookbook from Bershka filled with summer clothes? It's a very small lookbook, but I wanted to show you either way.
I went to Almere because I wanted to buy new running shoes. My knees hurt so much while running and my current shoes are more than a year old. I don't ran a lot of km's, but you need to change shoes every two years at least. Unfortunately, the store where I usually buy my shoes was closed because it was Sunday. Most other stores were open, so I visited Primark, H & M and other stores. I wouldn't be me if I didn't buy something!

There is one sort of item which I don't own a lot of: bags. I don't hate bags or something. I just think it's a hassle to throw all of my stuff in another bag. I used to do this but I always forgot something so I stopped doing it. It's why I always want a black bag. It goes with everything. Nevertheless, I like looking for bags. i saw some amazing bags at Van Haren, which are on sale as well.

I'm still looking for sandals or wedges which really ooze summer. Sandals by definition do, but wedges don't always look like summer shoes. I used to have wedges from jute with straps and those shoes were so cute. They also didn't last long because the jute was made from the worst material. Still, I would love to own a similar pair like those wedges.

So after I bought the floral dress at C & A in the sale, I had to check again for other nice items. And I spotted this dark green floral print dress. My sister got the blue one in short sleeves last Saturday, which I loved as well. But it was completely sold out. I love the green version with long sleeves as well. And I can be proud at myself, because it was also available in dark green with short sleeves but I just bought this one.
Monday, June 15, 2015
I'm not following the weather these last few months. Some days are great temperature wise and then after a few days it starts to rain and it gets very cold. I haven't worn any of my great shorts. I haven't worn a lot of (summer) dresses or skirts.

Summer has not started yet, which is a relief because the weather feels like fall save for some few days. But despite the bad weather, stores have started with the summer sale. Since summer weather can be as fickle as spring weather, the items I selected aren't super summerlike. But I wouldn't mind wearing these items during summer, whether the weather is good or not.
Now € 15,-, originally € 29,99

I went to Maastricht (town in the Netherlands) with my friends. Officially we wouldn't go shopping, but I had to wait with a friend until the other friend arrived. So we went into some of the stores and I spotted sale at C & A. I'm a sucker for sale and C & A usually already has clothes which are reasonably priced. So sale is extra fun. Because cheap clothes get cheaper! But it was so hot that I wasn't really in the mood of trying clothes. See, I'm not a shopaholic! I'm a shoeaholic though because I spotted shoes on sale.
Monday, June 1, 2015
I get slightly jealous when I look back at my outfit of the week post from last year. Shorts and T-shirts weather. And dresses weather. The only time when it's shorts weather is when I have to work. That's another reason why I unfortunately don't have a lot of spring and summery outfit to post (yet?).

* Dutchies only
I just wrote about fake All Stars and now I found out Trekpleister has real All Stars on sale, for a nice price.I have no problem with buying fake ones, but whenever I spot the real ones on sale it get tempted to buy the real ones.

I went to Almere this week, a friend of mine celebrated her birthday and I worked a lot. I also gave a party with my sister M. and mother for my sister E.

Red is my favorite color. No doubt about it. It's not like everytime I see something in red I buy it. I do have to like. But usually I just love the red items. That said I think I own more clothes in the color blue than in the colour red.

I think I only visited the River Island store once. I didn't really like the clothes and I thought it was a little bit on the pricey side. I'm not a big fan of this lookbook and not a big fan of the previous lookbooks. Yet, I'm posting this because others might like this lookbook and River Island. The fall/winter collection shows some 70s items, guess we're gonna continue this trend after the summer is over. The lookbook also shows kinda out there combinations and a lot of fishnet stockings. I hope those won't become trendy though.

A while ago I wrote about fake All Stars Converse or knock-offs. Nowadays a lot of stores have fake All Stars. I used to own a lot from Scapino but I got rid of them a few years ago. And I bought real ones. After a while I bought fake ones again at Van Haren. Because I can't walk all day on All Stars so why should I pay so much money for real ones. Besides, I like so many colors, I don't mind buying fake ones because that is cheaper. But when I see real ones for a nice price and in a color I love, I don't mind buying those either.

Shopping in Almere! I completely forgot the sale will begin soon enough, but shopping is always nice. I didn't want to wait two or three weeks for sale to begin even if I would've remembered. Now about my purchases, I was finally successful at H & M again. That was a long time ago! I started at Primark, so let's begin with that.
Monday, May 18, 2015
I had to work a lot this week, which means I don't have that many outfits to show. Extra work always means extra money which means shopping! I can't wait to go to Almere and Primark again. I also had sushi again and it was so good!
Balmain is the latest guest designer to work with H & M. Alexander Wang and Isabel Marant have been guest designers before him. These collections are always very popular and are limited editions. The clothes are more expensive, since they're more exclusive. However, usually these guest designers sell clothes which are far more pricier. H & M gives us the chance to buy these clothes somewhat affordable.

The Nike x Liberty collections are always very popular and I think this collection won't be an exception either. The sneakers and clothes are from the spring/summer 2015 collection. And because of the fun, colorful prints, they indeed look great for summer. Of course you can use them to spice up your outfit during fall and winter as well.
Friday, May 15, 2015
Sandals are always nice during summer. Whether the sandals have big wedges, small heels or no heels at all, you instantly look like ready for summer with sandals. I found a few nice looking and affordable wedges and sandals at Van Haren. I especially like the fact these sandals have straps, so I wouldn't slip out of them.

The last summer lookbook from Mango showed pretty much white items only, but this lookbook shows a little bit more color. Still not a lot though. The collection mostly exists out of brown items, other earth colors and white.

I felt very sick on Sunday so that's why I postponed wearing the outfit I had in mind for Sunday, by wearing it on Monday. I went all pink for the new princess of Cambridge, just for the lolz. On Sunday the name was announced and I think it's a lovely name: Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. Very touching that they, William & Catherine, honoured so many who are dear to them (Charles/Pippa, Elizabeth II and duh, Diana). Long story short, that's why I started Monday with an all pink outfit. Lets see what else I wore this week.

Only a few weeks back I wrote about a beautiful spring/summer dresses collection C & A had. Some of these dresses were quickly all sold out. I was right on time buying my floral dress and I'm still so happy with it, even though I've only worn it once. C & A has now launched another collection with again very chic, beautiful dresses.
Friday, May 8, 2015
Sale, I always love it. Even when I was a kid I loved it, because it meant getting more clothes. I always like sharing sales with you guys, so here is another one. Palladium boots are not cheap, so sale does make the boots (and other models) a lot more affordable.
Now € 84,-, originally € 119,99

Nike Air Max and Nike Air Max Thea. Two pair of shoes which were on my wishlist(s) for a while now. I went to Batavia Stad (a shopping centre with loads of outlets from big brands, like Adidas, Nike, Converse but also Hugo Boss, Michael Kors etc.) and I had to check out the Nike outlet. I didn't think I would see Air Max or Roshe Run, but it can't hurt to look right? And lo and behold, I spotted the Nike Air Max Thea!

The theme this year at the MET Gala 2015 was Oriental but it might as well could've been fugly, because the dresses this year were absurd. I feel like they become even more weird and ugly every year. Some of the dresses were acceptable and some even nice. But the most celebrities were outfits I wouldn't dare wearing. Then again some were a little bit too much on the safe side. Here are the pictures, so you can decide.

This week it was Kingsday, well on Monday to be exact, and I really looked forward to it. And it was really worth it! I bought four new blazers.

As you might know, I'm a huge fan of monarchy. We have a monarchy in the Netherlands, but I love other monarchies as well. If you follow me on Twitter, you read I was one of the #greatkatewait people. I tweeted that hashtag and several others (#royalbaby, #royalbabywatch etc.) a lot these days. But now it's finally here, the duchess of Cambridge has given birth to her second child, a daughter. A little princess of Cambridge! It's weird, but I think it's so awesome. Now prince George of Cambridge has a little sister.

The first thing I thought when I saw these pictures, was: she looks cold. The model looks like she's freezing and I can relate. The pictures are taken on a beach but it's not super sunny and I kinda like that, it makes the pictures look more real. I'm not a 100 % sure she is cold, but based on the fact she looks like she's freezing in most of the pictures (especially in the second one) I say she is. Also, it can be pretty chilly on beaches when it's windy and in the second picture you can see people walking with long sleeves on. So this kinda confirms my suspicion. But I didn't want to talk about the weather. I wanted to talk about the new Zara seasonals collection.

Bohemian and the 70s trends are still going strong, so you might as well call a collection Bohemian Fever. And that's what H & M did. Dutch model Imaan Hammam is the face of this collection which is available online and in stores. The collection shows clothes which are very suited for the beach, which is something H & M thought as well. Hence the photoshoot on the beach. Can I just say
(write) that I would love to visit these beaches. They also pick out the most wonderful locations for photoshoots. Enough about my rambling, here are the pictures.

My sister and her husband came over this weekend and they gave me presents! It was still for my birthday, which was a while ago, but no worries. I got a super cute bag which contained yummy baking mix for making chocolate chip cookies. Both were from HEMA. The bag is specifically for gift, but it's super cute.

April 27, 2015. My first Kingsday! It was the second Kingsday, but I had to work in 2014. When it was still called Queensday (which is the same holiday, but we now have a king as monarch, hence the change) I was in London in 2012 and in Rome in 2013. So the last Queensday/Kingsday I attended was in 2011. So I really wanted to again. I went to Amsterdam with my sisters, mother and aunt. And it was an amazing day!
Monday, April 27, 2015
I worked extra and I visited a friend who made an amazing meal. We talked for so many hours and ate a lot. It was so nice! I also went for drinks with two other friends on a very sunny day. It's so great to sit outside, talk and just have a drink.

I'm usually no fan of the lookbooks from Bershka and this one is no exception either. Still, I rarely skip the store when I go shopping. I don't always like the clothes either, but I love the kimono's and I usually love the sale. Sometimes I just have to search hard to find something I like. Because the clothes at Bershka are usually more like festival clothes. And sometimes I do like those clothes and sometimes I don't.
Saturday, April 25, 2015
Not a shoplog, but it is something new. At least for me it is. My oldest sister E. came over last weekend and she asked me if I liked this faux leather jacket from Bershka. She didn't like it anymore and she knows I like jackets and clothes. So naturally, I said yes!
