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!

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.

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!

Mid season sale time! I already showed some of the mid season sale from H & M, now I'm showing some pieces from the sale from other stores. Stores like Forever 21, Zara, Mango, stores that have nice clothes and when the clothes are on sale, they get even better! Because they're cheaper.

I received the parfum Intimately Beckham for her years ago. I loved it. It was a little bit on the heavy side, but not too heavy. Heavier than my other parfums though. I just noticed a few weeks ago the parfum was nearly empty.

I'm loving these temperatures, spring has finally sprung! I think most of the people are happy the sun is shining and the weather is great. Most stores already have their summer collections in stores for a while now, but now we can finally enjoy and wear them. Mango just released their new lookbook for their summer collection. The lookbook shows a lot of white and beige. White is of course very trendy this season. Even though the clothes don't appeal to me, I still love this lookbook. It almost makes me want to buy a ticket to wherever this photoshoot was taken.

After a busy family weekend, I had a quiet Monday. Game of Thrones started again and I watched the first episode of the new season with my sister. The first four episodes have already leaked, but we only watched the first one. I also went to the dentist this week

Last week I came home from my family weekend and even though I already told a little about the weekend in my last ootw, I wanted to share more details and some pictures. This isn't a sponsored post or anything, I just wanted to share a little bit about my weekend. My paternal grandparents would've become hundred this year, but they died a while ago because of old age. The family is pretty big and has become even bigger after their deaths. It is always nice to see everyone, since we don't see each other that often. Not everyone could come either, but there were still a lot of us. On Saturday there were forty people in one house! We went to Hof van Saksen and we used three houses. One house grouped 24 people, another house grouped almost ten people and four people stayed in another house.

Coachella is an huge famous festival in the United States. The festival goes on for six days and takes place in California. A lot of bands and singers give concerts and a lot of celebrity's attend Coachella. It kinda has became a festival you can't miss if you're famous. Speaking about the biggest trend this year, the 70s, the people visiting Coachella have always been big fans wearing 70s clothes to Coachella. Must be the festival thing right? Here are some pictures.

Ah remember the quote from Mean Girls: "On Wednesday we wear pink." It's how I felt when my pink faux leather biker jacket from Kruidvat came in. It's definitely darker than on the picture I saw online. On the webshop it looked more like a pastel pink color, while the color of the jacket looks darker than pastel pink.

This week it was Easter, my mother was celebrating her birthday and I had a family weekend this week, which was great fun but was also quit tiring because all of the talking. A busy but fun week.

The temperatures are going up and summer clothes pretty much filled every store. I love it! Flowy dress, tank tops, T-shirts, cheery floral prints. I prefer summer over winter and I especially prefer summer clothes over winter clothes. Yes, a sweater can be cozy. But I love wearing T-shirts. Speaking about summer clothes, Vila has just released their new lookbook.

Another jacket? Yes, that's right. Because I need another one for every day. No, I'm kidding. I was just browsing through magazines when I spotted this pink faux leather jacket for only € 19,99 at Kruidvat. Jackets are my weakness and for a small price they're too hard to resist.

I just wrote about fashion blogger Leandra Medine who worked together with Zara. Brands are becoming more eager to work with (fashion) bloggers because they recognize their influence. They usually have a young audience who are interested and willing to pay for their hobby. And they also are willing to pay for something just because their favorite blogger wore it. They are the new celebrities in a way and far more relatable. Swedish fashion blogger Pernille Teisbaek is the new face of Swedish brand Gina Tricot. I haven't heard of the brand before, but the items are affordable.

I could've sworn the Mid season sale already started at H & M, but I just got an email which said the online sale started. Sale is always a good thing (at least for me) so I don't really mind. I might have posted some things before, because they look familiar. Or it might be because I saw them so often on the H & M webshop. I'm sad the free shipping just ended, because I spotted lovely items.
Now € 30,-, originally € 59,99

Wow, it was super windy on Monday and Tuesday. It seriously felt like fall and not like spring. This is the first week of April right? If you would tell me it's October or November I would almost believe you. Almost, since the sun goes down way later so I know it's not fall. Still, you could've fooled me.

Have you seen the Adidas Superstar sneakers? They're on my wishlist, though I don't know which color I want for sure. White with black stripes are the most easy to combine. But I love the white ones with red or blue stripes as well. Now Adidas did something which makes it even more harder to choose. Pharrel Williams worked together with Adidas and made Adidas Superstar sneakers in 50 different colors.

Fashion bloggers are getting more and more famous for being themselves. Brands are starting to realise their influence more and more. And are not as afraid to work with fashion bloggers. Of course there is a huge difference between famous fashion bloggers and smaller fashion bloggers, like me. I don't pull in the numbers like Leandra Medine from Man Repeller.

My sister got married last year and I searched for a wonderful 'bridesmaid' (my sister didn't have bridesmaids, but it's easier to write this). I searched everywhere and luckily readers pitched in as well with suggestions for places with cute dresses. But then I suddenly found one at C & A. It was a cute floral summery dress with a pettycoat (I love those!) and it was € 59,90. Reasonably priced for a special occasion dress (though I feel like wearing it in summer whenever I want). And this year they again have special occasion dresses for a great price.

I went shopping with two friends today in Amersfoort. I surprisingly just bought one thing, not even at H & M. I bought this fake suede vest/blazer at Bershka for only € 24,99. I've liked these vests for a while now and when I spotted this color and the price I tried it on. It's such a wonderful color and I love the drapes effect.

Pharrel Williams teamed up with Adidas and made 50 awesome Adidas Superstar models. Each sneaker has one color, but you can choose from 50 colors. Red, blue, green, orange, yellow, basically every colow from the rainbow and more. I already spotted the baby blue and pink ones.
