Another lookbook from Zara? Yes, but I think this is the last one for spring 2015. I can't imagine another lookbook from Zara for spring. I'm however glad with these pictures, because I do like this collection. This one looks better and more like spring than these two lookbooks. I like the floral dresses, the black tunic and the denim shorts. This lookbook makes me feel like taking a peak on the Zara webshop.

I thought long and hard about posting this, but writing makes me feel better. That's why I'm posting this, even though it has nothing to do with fashion. Moschino, the cat, passed away last night. He had been sick since mid December and he never fully recovered since then. He had an infection to his pancreas and got pneumonia on top of that.

I went to Amsterdam today with my mom and I bought two new vests. I first went to Het Rijksmuseum, which has a lot of paintings, including De Nachtwacht from Rembrandt. After a couple of hours we went shopping and we went to the H & M.

Love Air Max, but you don't want a basic version? Not afraid of standing out in a crowd? And do you love floral prints? Then the Nike Air Max Ultra City might get you very excited. Because say what you will, they're unique and definitely eye-catchers.

Denim is still incredibly hot this spring and summer. Did it ever leave though? But just as previous years, denim on denim is trendy as well. Sometimes it can be hard to come up with ideas for denim on denim outfits. That's why Mango has some inspiration for you.
I tried on this floral blouse at C & A before, but I wasn't sure about buying it. I loved the print, but I wasn't sure about the length. However, I couldn't stop thinking about the blouse. Weird, right? The blouse wasn't expensive either and I love a floral print now and then (then again, what don't I love?)
I keep buying pastel colored clothes. And I keep buying clothes at C & A . This pastel green T-shirt was € 7,90. It's a simple but cute T-shirt. It will look great with a denim jacket and with dark pants.

I finally went to Almere again, where I didn't only shop, but also founded my company. I'm now a freelance copywriter and if you're interested, just send me a message. I also got a haircut! I was saying I should get a new haircut for months and now I finally did it. You can read more about my hair story here.
Finally, the award shows of the award shows: The Acadamy Awards. Also known as the Oscars. The award show is the biggest show of the award season and celebrity's always look forward to the show. I always look forward to the dresses. Most celebrity's really go all out with the Oscars, more than with other award shows.
Another pair of fake All Stars from Van Haren? Yes, that's right. Another pair! This time I went for low dark red/dark purple sneakers (depends on how you see colors, I think the sneakers have a little bit of both).

Zara couldn't be more clear on the trend this spring: 70s. The Zara Women lookbook isn't subtle about it all. The TRF lookbook was less 70s than this lookbook. Even the colors from the background look straight out of the flower power era. And so do some of these clothes. The clothes don't really appeal to me, they look a little bit too out there. But I'm sure a lot of people can appreciate this collection.

The opening of the first Topshop store in the Netherlands is approaching soon. It will open on February 26, at 11.00 A.M. Since not everyone who follows my blog is Dutch, I have some nice pictures from the new Topshop collection. Of course if you're curious about the store and the collection that's the best way to find out whether you would like the store. Even though a lookbook doesn't always say anything, a webshop does.

I got an haircut yesterday and I thought why not make a post about. Because I'm still not sure how I feel about my hair. I wanted a huge change last year, so I went quite short. It was a little bit longer on the front and shorter on the side. I don't have any good pictures on the haircut anymore unfortunately but I definitely want to try this haircut in the future again. After a while it grew a lot longer and I got it another haircut. This time I went shorter and I took my safe side bangs. Which I always take and then eventually there are no side bangs anymore because my hair has grown too much and I really don't go that often for a haircut.

For people who love the 70s, who love flared jeans, lots of denim and fringes, the upcoming season(s) are gonna be amazing. These trends are present in the Bershka lookbook for February. I love the brown jacket (is anyone surprised) shown in the lookbook. I love a lot of these items from this lookbook, but I'm not really sure if love all of the 70s trends. I'm not sure yet of flared jeans, even though I loved them when I was a teenager and when they were totally trendy.

I can buy a jacket on one day and totally fall in love with another the next day. My closet is getting really full with C & A clothes and C & A jackets. I love biker jackets, denim jackets and coats but I recently discovered suede (or jackets which look like they're made of suede) jackets.
I'm lying, this jacket looks like it was made from suede as well, so my obsession isn't new. Even though I'm writing suede the whole time, this particular red (!) jacket is made from leather. But when I look at the picture here, my mind doesn't immediately think leather. It does however thinks, me wants, me wants!

I went to Almere today because I went there for business. I can now officially say I just founded my own company. I'm gonna write texts for company's and of course I'm gonna keep on blogging. And I hope my blog will help with getting writing jobs. I want to continue with writing about affordable fashion brands. Because I love affordable fashion brands since I'm not exactly rich. And I'm guessing most of my readers (and blog readers in general) aren't either.
Last, Daria Werbowy showed the lookbook from the spring and summer 2014 collection from Mango. This year it's model Anna Ewers. The trends are white, 70s, denim and wide items. We already had a look at some parts of the collection here, but now you can see the collection modelled by Anna Ewers.I love this lookbook, despite not being overtly excited by the earlier lookbook for spring 2015.

There was snow last week, but this week it almost looked like spring. Especially if you were inside looking through a window and staring at the sun. Because it wasn't that warm outside. Not super cold, but certainly not warm. I also got very hoarse this week ugh. It kinda started on Thursday evening and by Saturday it sounded like I partied for a week straight.

The Zara TRF lookbook for spring 2015 doesn't show a lot of color. Zara usually doesn't show lots of color, so I'm not surprised. Still, I expected a slightly more springish lookbook. It shows a lot of earth colors. No pastel either, which I thought would be heavily featured at Zara. Perhaps there will be a lot of pastel colors in the stores and they just didn't show them in the lookbook. The lookbook also shows influences from the '70s.

It's time again for a new articles at H & M post! The last one was way back in December. I have a lot of pictures from items, since a lot of items have been added. Most of these items are quite affordable. There are jeans for € 19,99 and € 24,99 and even one for only € 9,99. Definitely good prices!

Pastel colors always remind of spring. Probably because you see them a lot during spring. I wasn't that fond of pastel colors a couple of years ago, but now I'm loving those colors. They look fresh, cute and at the same time you can make them more edgy with edgy boots. Nelly has made a lookbook with amazing pastel colors, so you're ready for spring.
Ever since I bought these green pants at C & A, the salmon pants I tried on the same day stayed in the back of my mind. I didn't buy the salmon pants, because they were see through. But I found out the (off) white jeans are see through as well. Which I didn't think they were when I bought them, oops!

I'm a sucker for coats and (biker) jackets. Lately I have seen ads everywhere for this amazing Mango jacket. And now I want it. When I saw the ads I first thought the jacket was made from suede, but apparently it's peccary. The color of the jacket is a dark brown. Best thing about the jacket? The price!
It was my sisters birthday and I got new boots. Because my package from H & M came in! Remember these white boots I ordered? They came in and they're super cute. And I'm happy to say, they also fit! That's always nice, lol.

The snow was here again this week. I really thought we would've been past it, but I guess not. This was however probably the last week of snow this winter. I bought new sneakers this week and I went lunching with a friend.

I didn't blog about the BAFTA Awards last year but I saw some amazing dresses (and very fugly) so you know, I just have to blog this year. Don't worry, I'm not gonna blog about every freakin' (pardon my French) award show. But the BAFTA Awards is a pretty prestigious award ceremony right before the Oscars right? So lets start.

I just bought new shoes and I'm still waiting on an order of H & M. Yet I can never stop looking at shoes. If you're like me and you're a true shoeaholic, you know how it is. I spotted these edgy boots at the Men at Work sale (which has woman-wear as well). These boots are not from Timberland, but from Palladium. They remind me of Timberlands but also from these boots I just ordered at H & M.

Ellie Goulding is starring in a Nike campaign. The British singer is quite the fitness enthusiastic, so the choice for the campaign makes sense. Goulding has run five half-marathons in the past. In the first two pictures she wears a more colourful ensemble, but the rest of the outfits are quite dark.

See, I'm really on a roll.I just bought two new pair of shoes and I already ordered some new one. The funniest thing is, I saw these shoes at the H & M magazine at the kids collection. It's kinda weird, buying something from the kids collection. But I don't think these boots are really childlike, they are also available in my size, which is usually a size 38. Not really a shoe size for a kid right?
Hailey Baldwin, a model, is the daughter of Stephen Baldwin, she is also rumored to be the girlfriend of Justin Bieber. And she is also the new face of the latest Topshop denim collection. Topshop has released a lookbook with Hailey Baldwin showing the collection. There are 9 types of jeans in total: Jamie Flare ('70s flared jeans), Binx (comfy stretch skinny jeans), Jamie (ripped skinny ankle jeans), Mom ('90s high waisted comfy jeans), Baxter (a more loose skinny jeans), Hayden (boyfriend jeans), Girlfriend (less loose than boyfriend jeans), Leigh (mid rise super soft skinny jeans) and Joni (ultra skinny and ultra high waist).

Remember all those fake All Stars I bought last year at Van Haren? Like these white ones or these off white and black ones? After barely shopping at the beginning of the year, I feel like I'm catching up. Not that it's a competition, but whenever I think okay, I have enough, something always catches my eye. And then I buy it. So I was surprised I barely bought something at the beginning of January. But I'm on a roll now, since I bought two new pair of shoes.
We already saw the lookbook from the Mango spring and summer 2015 collection. The lookbook showed a lot of items in the 70's style. A lot of flowy, wide items and a lot of polkadot. The collection was mostly white, not a lot of color. Yesterday was the fashion show where the spring and summer 2015 collection from Mango was presented on the runway.

This really was an exciting week, because it was the week I had my driving exam! So I had a lot of driving lessons this last few weeks, or months. Driving didn't come natural to me. I was scared at first and it took me a while to get used to the car. I didn't drive in an automatic, which would've been easier, but automatics are less common in Europe. So if I could only drive in an automatic, I wouldn't be able to drive in most cars. That's why I didn't want to learn how to drive in an automatic. But Wednesday it was the day I had my driving exam.

I have mentioned before H & M Studio isn't really my style. This lookbook again confirms my feelings, but I still like to share the lookbook. Because the items are a little more out of the box and I'm certain a lot of people do appreciate the collection. Otherwise H & M would've stopped with H & M Studio. In any case, I do like the lookbook but I wouldn't buy the clothes. However, we can always take a look at the clothes without buying.
