On Sunday summer time started but spring is nowhere to be seen, let alone summer. I feel like people are getting really cranky because of the weather. The winter wasn't that bad per se, we only had snow a couple of times and it wasn't super cold. Still, most people are over the winter weather and want spring. I'm one of them. But the weather will change sooner than later since it's almost April. But lets take a look at the outfits of the last week of March.

If you're Dutch or if you're Belgian, or living in the Netherlands or in Belgium, you can shop with a discount today. 'Cause it's National Glamour Day. It's an biennial thing (it happens twice a year) and a lot of stores and webshops have a discount on this day. Love it! Below the cut are the discount codes for webshops. Hurry, because the discount is only valid tonight!

You might have seen them on my blog since I'm a big fan: the knock-offs All Stars from Van Haren. A lot of shoe brands have knock-offs from the popular brand and who can blame them. All Stars always look great, match with almost everything, they come in so many colors and prints, they are sneakers but don't look like sport shoes and they can be very comfortable. I write can be comfortable, since my feet hurt after walking on them all day. But that might be different for others. Bottom line, All Stars go great with many outfits. But they can be expensive, especially if you like so many colors and don't want to wear the same color every day (
like me). I used to buy knock-offs only, later I bought the real ones and finally I now have real ones and knock-offs. Van Haren has great knock-offs and I own several of them.

I picked up my Vans at Kruidvat and bought a mint green denim jacket for only € 9,99. I also spotted a white and old pink version, for the same price. I really loved the white version, but it wasn't in my size. So when I came home I ordered the white denim jacket at Kruidvat for only € 9,99.
I picked up my Vans. They're my first pair, well two, since I bought two pairs. I bought them at Kruidvat for only € 24,99. While these were the only ones left in my size, they were the ones I really love. I love the color blocking from the first pair and I love the neon lime ones.
I'm skipping writing about how much I like the latest C & A collection, because I've wrote that a couple of 100 times already I think. Instead I will say that I love this mega lookbook from C & A which basically covers all of their collection. It shows the spring collection with spring colors (pastel), (floral) prints and amazing cute dresses. C & A called the lookbook the megalogue, so yes that means plenty of pictures ahead (
and we should make this a thing).

I bought a ton of stuff today because I went to Almere. The mid season sale started last week so I wanted to check out the H & M sale in the store. Sometimes the clothes are more priced of in the stores. And sometimes you find different clothes on sale in the store. Or something is already sold out online but you really want to have it and it might be in the store. That's why I always want to check the sale in the stores as well. I first went to Primary and it wasn't that busy at all. Such a relieve!
If you still need some denim on denim inspiration, fear not. Mango showed inspiration before, but Zara is now here to help you out if you weren't so sure of the trend just yet. Or you might still not like this trend, but you can always get inspiration for other outfits. Some of these looks are very 70s, which is the trend now as well. But some of these looks feel more like 80s to me.

It's getting boring to write, but really the weather is still all over the place. On one day it's cold, the other day it's warmer and very sunny. It's really weird, just let spring really begin. Because while spring has begun, the weather keeps going back and forth. Really annoying. Now enough about the weather and let's move on to my outfits this week.

Olivia Wilde is the new model for the latest Conscious Collection from H & M. The Conscious Collection is an exclusive environmental clothing line from H & M and usually has beautiful pieces. The collection will be available from April 16. This line will be all about the dress and you can't blame H & M since the first dress is gorgeous! The materials from the line are of course more environmental friendly, hence the name being Conscious Collection.

Spring has officially begun! We all know the trends and we've been wearing some of them but we might be able to finally wear the rest when the temperatures go up! I can't wait to wear all of my biker jackets, denim jackets, T-shirts and more colorful clothes in general! Here is some inspiration for when the sun comes out... Or not.

White sneakers are very popular right now. Especially the Adidas Stan Smith and Superstar sneakers are very trendy. They may remind some people of tennis shoes, but the fashion world embraced white sneakers for the cool sneakers they are. At least for now. I gotta confess, they're growing on me as well. I collected some other amazing white sneakers for this post. Two of them are actually for men, but sneakers are pretty much unisex so you could still wear them and nobody will notice.

If I will keep up this pace, I'm going to set a new record of buying shoes. I'm scared to count the shoes I bought last year. And I'm probably gonna being scared to count how many shoes I bought this year. I might have two new sneakers for my shoe collection. I ordered these two pair of Vans at Kruidvat. Usually Vans are around € 65,- or more. Kruidvat had an amazing discount, Vans for only € 24,99. This store usually doesn't sell these shoes, it mostly sells make-up, shampoo, a little bit of clothing etc. It sells a lot, normally no Vans though. But now they did. Most of the sneakers were already sold out, but I was able to order these.
When even the chairs in a lookbook scream 70s, you really know it's a trend that's gonna be everywhere. That said, I really love this lookbook. I love the yellow dress and the fringe jacket. I think the items in this lookbook are very wearable. They aren't too much 70s so people probably won't ask if you recycled them (from your own closet or your moms).

Funny, I just mentioned I visited two stores which I rarely/never visit. And that is something I did today. I went to Steps, which has the most beautiful dresses. Unfortunately the prices at Steps are a bit pricier, it's why I don't visit the store a lot. Because I don't like it when I see nice clothes and it's expensive so I'm not gonna buy it. So why should I bother to visit the store? Because they ha(v)d(e) a great sale! I saw a red dress made from (faux?) leather on top and a different fabric on the bottom. It looked amazing, but it wasn't in my size. And those sizes were the last, so that's why it was only € 15,-. Either way, I did manage to find other great things.
I really want an A-line coat for this spring. I wanted a coat like that for so long, but I always feel they aren't flattering on me. I tried one on at Vero Moda but I think that coat was a little bit too long. I saw another one at Steps but that one was € 120,- which is way above my budget. So here are a couple of A-line coats which are more affordable. I noticed New Look has a ton of these coats and some of these are now on sale. Some of these might qualify as winter coats, but it's still quite chilly even though spring is almost near.
€ 49,99 H & M

The first ten weeks of this year flew by. We're already in week 12 while I'm writing this post. In week 11 I visited two stores I rarely visit and I bought new items at these stores. Sometimes you just have to visit a store you rarely visit, because you might find some interesting stuff.

I usually post about new collections from H & M Home, but never about Zara Home even though I post news about Zara. So it's to show a lookbook from Zara Home. This lookbook is called Essential Tableware, because... drumroll please! It shows tableware. I guess you didn't see that one coming? In all seriousness, the collection shows a lot of white tableware and coffee. And now I want coffee.

Last year was all about the Roshe Run from Nike and I bought two pairs. This year might be the year of the Stan Smiths and Superstar from Adidas. Nike of course has released another hot sneaker everybody wants to wear. Because Air Max and Roshe Run might still be very much trendy, they need to release a new sneaker before everybody gets bored with afore mentioned items. This year Nike has combined Roshe Run with Flyknit which creates: the Nike Flyknit Roshe Run.

Denim, denim and denim. Lots of denim in the collection from Noisy May. Noisy May is a brand you can buy at Vero Moda and they have their own webshop. The prices of the items from the brand are in the same price range as Vero Moda. So clothes are more expensive than Primark and sometimes H & M and more like Zara. Clothes are still affordable, a lot of jeans are around € 40,-. Now about the collection, like I mentioned earlier there's a lot of denim and most of the items are more like the 80s than the 70s. Which kinda surprised, since the 70s are very popular right now.

Wow I had no idea my bangs were already so long. But that's not what this post is about. I went for grocery shopping (which far too often ends up more expensive than I planned) and I paid a visit to C & A. I didn't buy anything there for myself, but I did buy something at other stores. I went to Vero Moda, where I haven't been in ages. The lookbooks are great, but the collection in the stores often disappoint me. Mostly because of the prices, the items look like Primark and H & M, but the prices are higher.

On Sunday it felt like spring, while last week on Monday it started to hail while shooting outfit pictures. We have a Dutch saying for the month March: 'Maart roert zijn staart'. It basically means it can still be very cold, very windy in March. But it also means the weather can be good and very much like spring one day.

I found two new collections from Lauren Conrads clothing line. Lauren Conrad teamed up with Disney and Kohl's to create a collection based on Cinderella. The collection is very cute, but I always think the collections from Lauren Conrad are very cute.

Rita Ora has made another collection with Adidas. We're used to colorful outfits from Rita Ora and that's the best way to describe this collection: colorful. I'm all about colors and prints but this collection isn't my cup of tea. Nevertheless, all these colors make me quite happy.

I think I said enough about the Violeta models from Mango. They just don't look like plus models to me. I do however often like the Violeta collection even though I don't wear it. But this clothing line really shows you can look amazing when you're not that thin. Off course you can also be very tall, because sometimes you can't fit in the 'regular' sizes either. Now about the collection, there aren't a lot of prints, but you will see a lot of white, black and denim.

I don't think I own anything in peach yet, so it was about time since it is a lovely color. And pastel is a trend which I really love at the moment! Nothing says spring like pastel. So when I saw this T-shirt at Takko Fashion for only € 6,99 I tried it on immediately.
Did anybody watch the H & M Studio AW 15 Fashion show yesterday? I didn't, but I was very curious how the new Studio collection would look. The H & M Studio is more exclusive, more expensive and a little bit more daring and out of the box. It's weird that the fashion show from yesterday showed the fall collection, but that's how fashion works. The collection shows big jackets, lots of (dark) green, orange, dark blue and printed items. Most of these colors are fall colors, but the printed items give the collection a little bit more of a boost in my opinion. Because those dark colors can become quite boring sometimes.

My current obsession are Adidas Superstar sneakers. Last year I was obsessed about Roshe Run and since then I'm the proud owner of two pair. I still love my Roshe Run, they still are amazing and are super comfortable. But I'm a shoeaholic and I'm always on the hunt for new shoes. I've been obsessed with sneakers in general for a while now. And I confess, I didn't really like the Adidas Stan Smith or Superstar sneakers at first. But I warmed up to them. I'm very into white sneakers in general at the moment. I don't want them because everybody else wears them. I really like them myself, but it does help they're suddenly everywhere. Because let's be real, chances are you're gonna like something when you see it a lot. That's how the brain works.

Pastel has been hot for several years during spring time. I've been stocking pastel items for my closet as well. I can't wait to combine my pastel items and I look forward to buying some new items. After I saw this pastel lookbook from Nelly I looked at the items and saw great clothes and great prices. Here are some items that will get you ready for spring.
€ 39,95 Noisy May via Nelly

This was a very dark and sad week. As you might've read, Moschino passed away Thursday night. He was finally getting better but he unfortunately got pneumonia. This week started out fine but ended horribly.

Today is the first day of March which means spring is coming closer and closer. I'm gonna keep writing this until it's spring. Spring and summer means hotter temperatures, but it also means festival season. Coachella is one of the most famous festivals. The festival takes place in California and is three days long. A lot of celebrities go to Coachella. H & M already sponsored the festival several times and now H & M is releasing a clothing line with clothes perfect for Coachella and other festivals. The collection shows a lot of fringe, shorts, kimonos, floral dresses and loose T-shirts.
