FASHION / I'm the polka to your dots

dress - romwe | shirt - vintage | bag - oasap | shoes - vagabond

Hi there, this is me letting you know I'm still alive! I'm sorry it has been very quiet on here lately but I've been very busy with multiple things. First of all, after a break in house hunting I've started looking around for places to stay in Rotterdam again. During last week I checked out three rooms, of which one of them might be my future home. Nothing is for sure yet though, so I'm trying to not get my hopes up too high. Besides that I also had an exam on Tuesday, which btw went pretty well! Next week I'll have two more so the coming days will be full of studying, unfortunately. However I've also planned some fun things; I'm going to see Cinderella with my little sister and there's a vintage kilo sale in Rotterdam which I'll be going to. It has been a very long time since I bought some good, quality, vintage, so hopefully I can find some real treasures this weekend!

And that's it for now!

FASHION / back against the wall

sweater & skirt - oasap | shoes - vagabond

Last weekend Dylan and I went to a nice spot to take outfit pictures. We once saw it from a distance, and this time we finally went over there to check it out. The colour of the walls match so good with my grey sweater don't you think! After we took these pictures we went to see Kingsman: the secret service. I really enjoyed the movie, especially since it featured handsome guys in suits with English accents. Every girls dream right haha? Anyways, the coming days will be very busy for me. My exam week starts next week, I'll have fun parties and there's something else, something very exciting, that might happen very soon. I will not say too much about it just yet, because nothing is official yet. However, when it is, you will definitely read about it here!

And that's it for now!

NEW IN / pinstripe bikini top

bikini top - asos

About a week ago I ordered some things on Asos and I was so happy when I received the package a few days ago. Since last summer I've been on the hunt for a nice, black and white bikini top because mine had become way too small. You would say that's not that hard, but when you have a bigger cup (34D / 75D and up) it's quite hard to find something nice and affordable. But, I'm a happy girl because I finally found one! I absolutely love the black and white pinstripe this bikini top has and I can't wait to wear it this summer. Unfortunately the bikini bottom of this set was sold out in my size, so all I have to do now is find a nice bikini bottom to combine this top with. I'm thinking about horizontal stripes or maybe dots, just to make the overall look a bit playful! 

Besides the bikini top I also got a lovely striped top with an open back and some basic black shorts. It's still a bit (or a lot) too cold to wear these items so an outfit with them will come later!

FASHION / suit up!

blazer - h&m | top - mango | pantalon - topshop | shoes - vagabond | earrings - fashionology

Last Thursday I went to an award show hosted by my study committee. Some of my friends were nominated for 'best summary maker', 'best presenter' and 'miss sunshine'. Unfortunately, none of them won, but still we had a very fun night. There was music, wine, and everyone looked lovely. The dress code was black tie, so for the occasion I suited up! I'm sorry for the small amount of photographs, but the light was being annoying, so these were the only photographs worth posting. Tonight I'm going to the movies with Dylan, though I'm not sure which movie yet. I'm doubting between Into the Woods and Kingsman: The Secret Service. Which one would you recommend?

Enjoy your weekend!

INSPIRATION / get ready for festival season!

Get it online: Outfit 1 > sunnies | playsuit | backpack | dr martens
Get it online: Outfit 2 > sunnies | dress | clutch | dr martens
Get it online: Outfit 3 > sunnies | dungarees | backpack | dr martens

I know what you're thinking right now. Festival season? But it's only March? And yes, although most festivals are during the summer, here in The Netherlands we had our first, big festival last weekend (Where the Wild Things are). Which, if you'll ask me, officially opens 2015's festival season hurray! To celebrate this I thought it would be fun to make 3 simple but cool festival outfits, all based on one of my favourite shoe brands: Dr Martens. I came up with this idea when Invito approached me a few weeks ago and asked if I wanted to do a collaboration with them. Even though I knew Invito already, I'd have never really checked them out and when I did I found out that they sell some amazing shoe brands! My own white pair of Dr Martens is in need of some friends so I might get the classic black ones, as you can see above, somewhere in the near future (if my bank account allows it haha).

Which outfit is your favourite?

FASHION / vintage stripes

top - vintage | jeans - monki | shoes - vagabond

Oh what a wonderful weekend it has been, and what a shame it's already over. For the first time this year we've actually experienced some good, spring weather here in The Netherlands. The sun was out and I was able to take these outfit pictures without even shivering haha! Before Dylan took these quick outfit photo's of me we visited the Kunsthal in Rotterdam to see two exhibitions by Parra and Kristof Kintera. Both were very nice but I especially liked the latter one. The exhibition is called 'Your light is my life' and it consists mainly out of really big sculptures made out of literally anything: lamps, books, footballs you name it. Besides that sound played a big part as well, which made everything come to life. It's kind of hard to describe, but if you're into art you should definitely check it out if you have the chance! 

And that's it for now!
