Trends according to Mango

A lot of fashion brands predict the trends for the upcoming season. Mango is the latest brand which has predicted these trends. We saw these trends in the lookbook for the new spring collection. But Mango made a compilation, summing up the trends, these are: Color Block, Play with Stripes, Simplicity, Glam Rock, Fringes, Florals, Minimal Graphics, Graphic Blocking, Soft Colors, Sporty Style and 70s Feel. I think the trends and pictures speak for them self. Most of these trends aren't new. However, I do like most of these trends.

Acne knock-off boots

The Acne Pistol sh Black ankle boots are way above my budget, with the price at € 430,-. That's why I always search for knock-offs. I found similar boots at H & M, for the nice price of € 29,99. Which is a difference of € 400,-. A lot of money in my opinion. Sure, the real ones might have a better quality and might look better, but I wouldn't feel comfortable walking in such expensive shoes. I prefer knock-offs in these cases.

 These are the real ones.

After I passed my driver license I immediately went to the city council for the rights documents. After this I went into the town for grocery shopping. I also went to C & A, even though I didn't think I would buy something because I just saw the latest collection on Saturday. But there were already some new items today and great items at that. I bought two pants on Saturday and got one from my mother. But today I bought some other spring and summer items.


Yes, I did it! I passed my driver license! I started exactly a year ago. And today I passed the test. A lot of people are faster, but I really was afraid to drive in the beginning. I was also so focused on getting my diploma that I wasn't really able to be focused on driving lessons. Combined with the fact I'm no natural at driving, it took a lot of time and money. And patience.

SAG Awards 2015

Just when I thought the next award show would be the Oscars, I suddenly saw pictures of the SAG awards. There were some refreshing outfits, like the jumpsuit Julia Roberts wore. Jennifer Aniston showed cleavage again. I normally not a big fan of a lot of cleavage, but it's an interesting choice for Jennifer who usually (except for this award season) always stays with a safe choice.

Outfits of the week: Week 4

Some parts of the Netherlands had snow late December. The snow didn't come here. But this week it finally did. I'm usually not a big fan of snow. I purely wanted snow for the outfit pictures. Yes, I'm a fashionblogger. There are so many beautiful outfit pictures with snow online. I wanted that as well and this week I got my wish.

It's an animal city

These were too awesome, so I had to share these leopard sneakers from Van Haren. I started this blog with an obsession for polkadot. I now have so many items with polkadot that I looked around for another obsession. That obsession became leopard. Granted, I still love polkadot and I still buy items with polkadot.

I went for a quick grocery shop in my town. Of course I had to make a quick stop at C & A which turned out to be a very good choice and a longer stop. I got one tregging from my mother and I bought two pants myself. I noticed C & A has a great spring collection, which I already mentioned several times before. But it's true, C & A nowadays has great clothes. I usually don't leave the store without buying something. Even so, this is my first shoplog this year. Not bad for a possible shopaholic right?

Stella McCartney for Adidas at Topshop

I really need to pick up exercising again, because I've been skipping a lot lately. Also due to snow, but when it snows outside, I can always exercise inside. So I really need to pick up exercising again. All these fashion brands which are releasing sportswear collection do help a little. Stella McCartney has teamed up with Adidas for another sportswear collection and it's sold at Topshop. That are a lot of brands collaborating for one sportswear collection. The collection shows bright items mixed with black and white. Most notable item? The onesie.

New Look sports collection

New Look is the latest fashion brand which now has a sportswear collection. Being healthy is hot, therefor sportswear is hot. The sportswear collection has bright colors, black clothing items and items with prints. So basically you have a lot of choice. Which is always great, because not everybody wants hysteric prints. While not everybody wants to have a basic outfit either.

Jackets at C & A

I'm obsessed with jackets, coats and biker jackets. I earlier wrote about (biker) jackets at Bershka on sale and it was so hard to not order anything. Because if I'm honest, I have quite a few. Yet when I see biker jackets I always want another one. The hearts wants what it wants I guess. I spotted some amazing (biker) jackets at C & A and of course I wanted them. They're from the new spring collection and some of these are very affordable and tempting to order.

Hunkemöller sports collection lookbook

To be quite honest, I had no idea Hunkemöller had a sports collection. That is, until I found this lookbook from their latest sports collection. I'm not sure why I'm surprised, because nowadays every fashion brand has a sports collection. Even a store which sells bra's and pajama's. But it's great, 'cause it means more choice for us! The sports collection, which is called HKMX, was launched last year. The current collection shows colors, mixed with black. There are no prints, so it's still quite basic, but not dull. However, you see a lot of tops and bra's. I don't know about you, but I prefer to sport in tank tops or T-shirts. There are also bra tops with zippers, which don't seem convenient for sporting at all. But perhaps I'm wrong?

Primark spring 2015 lookbook

The tulips aren't blossoming yet, but the beginning is coming. I saw a few peaks of them and I got all excited. The weather hasn't really changed, it's still cold. But we've seen most of the spring lookbooks now, except for Primark. So here is the spring 2015 lookbook from Primark. There a lot of floral prints, flowy and pastel items.

Outfits of the week: Week 3

This week was busier than my last few weeks. I got some extra hours at my job, I was driving a lot and it was my birthday this week! I also had a terrible hair week. Not a terrible hairday, but an entire week. I really should get a haircut, but I'm the worst because I keep postponing, because I hate getting a haircut. It feels like a waste of time, even though I nearly always like the result. So I always nag about getting a haircut for months. So that was my story about my hair situation. Now let's go the outfits! There aren't a lot unfortunately.

H & M Home spring collection 2015

Even though I never bought something from the H & M Home collection, I always love looking at their lookbooks and at their items. I showed the new trends for the spring collection a while ago. The pictures were kinda small, but I have bigger and more pictures in this post. Enjoy!

Painted blouse

I love my painted T-shirt from H & M which I bought in 2013. The T-shirt was from the Trend collection and I plan on wearing a lot when it gets warmer. One of my favorite looks of 2014 was with the T-shirt. Why I'm talking about my T-shirt from H & M? I saw a slightly similar blouse at Vero Moda.

Birthday time

It's my birthday! This day is gonna be filled with amazing food, presents and lots of fun. I'm going with a friend to another friend to a city nearby Amsterdam. We will do a lot of shopping, catch up and have fun. We haven't exactly have great weather, but then again, we can stay in a lot of stores and look at the clothes. It my first birthday in ages I'm not at home, so it's gonna be weird perhaps. But of course I will have a great time with my friends. Birthday changes when you get older, which sounds very old lol. But for most people it's true. It's not as exciting as when you're a kid. Wanna know how old I am now? 24. Yes, I will be 25 next year. Perhaps my early midlife crisis will begin, but I don't have to think about that now!

Final sale

If you're still waiting for that one jacket to get cheaper, you should buy it now if it's still in your size. The finale sale has started, which sometimes means items are 70 % cheaper. But it also means more items are already sold out. Here are some jackets and blazers that are now wonderfully priced at Bershka. If you like an item, don't wait too long because sale is almost over!

Outfits of the week: Week 2

This week finally felt like a normal week. It did feel good after the busy days with Christmas and New Years Eve. The weather on the first few pictures doesn't look horrible, but the weather was often absolutely shit. There has been a crazy wind almost all week and it's still going strong unfortunately. The wind also creates hilarious pictures, so that's a plus. And again you can see my face on the pictures. I want to thank everybody for the amazing sweet comments on my post from last week. Thank you so much! It really meant a lot to me and I'm less anxious about showing my face :)!

Golden Globes Awards 2015

I completely forgot the Golden Globes Awards were on yesterday. Not that I would watch it, but I love seeing the dresses of the women who went. The lovely thing about the internet is, that you don't need to watch the show but you can still see the dresses. And here I am, presenting most of the outfits women wore to the Golden Globes Awards 2015. As always, red was a popular color. But this year there were also a lot of outfits with metallics. Be warned, ton of pictures ahead!

Fake Roshe Run

As you might know, I love my Roshe Run. They're very comfortable and they look awesome, in my opinion. I secretly want to buy another pair, but I won't. The ones I bought weren't super expensive, but sometimes the sneakers are € 90,- or even more. That can be expensive. I found amazing knock-offs at the C & A webshop. I'm tempted to order them, since they're only € 14,90 which is super cheap. Of course I don't expect the same quality. But perhaps when I wear them with my soles they will still be comfy.

The bathroom coat

I haven't seen anybody in real life wearing the bathroom coat, but I have seen multiple bloggers wearing it and I've seen the bathroom coat at several webshops. I honestly don't really get, because I would really feel like wearing a bathroom coat. But for the people who are braver than I am, I found a classy one at New Look.

C & A spring and summer collection 2015

It's no secret I like to buy a lot at C & A. Over the last few years there has been a lot of cool stuff in their collection. And this new spring and summer collection looks promising as well. The collection shows a lot of denim and also some more bohemian items. All these spring and summer lookbooks make me crave spring and summer!

C & A sports collection

Most fashion brands nowadays have a sportswear line. People want to be healthy and want to exercise. C & A is the latest fashion brands which now has a sportswear collection. The clothing items are affordable, though most of the pieces are quite basic. You don't see a lot of prints, but then again not everybody likes prints. So these line is perfect for the people who don't want a lot of fuss and who wants affordable sportswear.

Coat € 49,90

Inspiration for sweater weather

On days like these, when it's super cold outside and it's raining and the weather is just ugh, I often want to grab a sweater and jeans. Just a simple, basic outfit. But I also want to challenge myself to make some less basic outfits. Although there is nothing wrong with basic and I sometimes love to wear it. Just not everyday. I found some inspiration on Topshop. The first picture isn't very practical without pants though.

Vila prespring collection 2015

Vila has released a collection before their spring collection. It's called prespring and I'm not sure why they didn't just call it their spring collection. Most fashion brands are releasing their lookbooks and a lot of fashion stores already sell their spring collection. The prespring collection also looks like a spring collection. Whatever season it actually is, it looks great. Blue is the color that comes back in most outfits. There are also a lot of black and white items. And there also prints and stripes. I love it, but I still wouldn't call this prespring. There aren't a lot of thick sweaters, the materials are mostly thin. Certainly not warm enough for this time of the year.

Outfits of the week: Week 1

I'm super nervous about this post. Because from now on I'm showing my face. Yes, that's right. From now on you can see my showing the outfits. I'm quite nervous, since people can be quite mean, especially online. It's not the reason why I never posted my face though. I have a skin condition eczema and when I started my blog I had eczema on my face. I wanted to blog, but I didn't want to show my face. I started blogging and it felt good. But eventually I thought about showing my face. I decided I would make my decision after I graduated. I still wasn't sure after my graduation but my brother in law convinced me. I want to take my blog to the next level and in order to that I'll have to show my face. This means that other people might recognize me now, which is also somewhat scary. But as a journalist you have to be present on the internet nowadays. So here I am with my first outfits of the week of 2015 with my face!

Vero Moda spring lookbook 2015

Some lookbooks showing the new spring 2015 collection look like they came right out of the seventies. I've seen a lot of fringe, flowy and wide clothing items. I also spotted a lot of print and black and white clothing items. Black and white aren't really seventies, but some of the prints look straight out of the seventies. This lookbook from the Vero Moda spring 2015 collection is more a throwback to the eighties with a lot of denim. The amount of denim really stood out. But in this lookbook you will also see a lot of prints, black and white and light colors! There aren't really colors that are bright. Nevertheless, the collection looks fun. But I wouldn't be surprised if I will be disappointed when I look at the prices when I will see their collection in stores.

I always like looking at sales and I'm always looking at shoes. Yes, I'm a shoeaholic. While I already posted about the Intreza sale, I wanted to share these cute floral Vans shoes with you guys.

These Vans shoes are on sale at Intreza. The price of these shoes are originally € 69,99, but they're now only € 24,99. A cute price for cute shoes!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year everybody! I want to wish everybody an amazing 2015! 2014 has been a great year, the year in which I graduated. Sure, there were days which were absolutely awful. But overall, it has been a great year. I'm very excited for 2015 and what the new year will bring.
