FLIP FLOPS, YES OR NO?

Ahh, flip flops. Is it manageable to make them look chic or do they need to be banished to a deserted island far far away? Some think they're the most hideous things ever made. I think they can actually look pretty cool, especially when you look a little further than the rubber option.

UNDER €45, STRAPPY SANDAL

If it wasn't for the fact that I bought a very chic sandal just recently, I would have fetched these strappy sandals right away.

DENIM STORIES WITH NANA

Having worked at Levi’s XX - Levi’s premium division - for almost three years now, Nana sure knows her denim. She travels around the globe (more often than I do) to spread the denim love and if you throw denim in the mix with a leopard print, she's sold.

EDITOR’S LETTER / JULY

Summer has officially started - late last month - and that means our bikini’s (or swimsuits, if you want to be on trend while flipping a magazine on a beach bed) are ready to see some daylight again. Just add a summer hat and flip flops and you’re good to go. Or not? Because are flip flops ok?

Are they?

Hmm, we’ll discuss that later this week.

Apart from the flip flop being a faux pax or not, we’ll also be talking freckles, black (or rather navy blue?) in summer, new lengths and summer jewelry.

And speaking of summer, do you have any exciting getaway plans? Me personally, I am going to have to wait for a little bit, because I will probably go on a holiday in November. But with a lot of fun stuff on the planning in my own country, I am not complaining at all. Plus, secretly I love going on a sunny hiatus even more when it's cold at home. It’s kind of like a charger for my biological summer battery that will easily drag me through winter without the chance of getting depressed.

Anyway, I AM still searching for the perfect destination, so please inspire me by telling me all about your plans.

For now, hello July!

HAPPY SUNDAY!

Happy Sunday!

PS: If you happen to be in Amsterdam today, I'll be selling some pretty cool gems from my wardrobe in collaboration with The Next Closet and ELLE at the Andaz Hotel garage. I'll be there from 3PM - 5PM and the address is Prinsengracht 587. See you there!

UPDO IT YOURSELF: WOW OR GO?

Google 'perfect hair'. Go on. This is not a test, I dare you. If you just did, you stumbled upon a great collage of glamorous longhaired vamps. From blonde bombshells to brunette babes.

I imagine these girls holding some rhinestone clutch, arguing with their model boyfriend. Perhaps even chewing on pink bubblegum, while publicly taking a selfie. Whether curtained, sleek or wavy: they all descry that same superficial cliché. I can’t help but marvel: is this our collective concept of what women’s hair should look like?

SUMMER BRACELET KEEPSAKES

Every summer I like to collect bright colored threads to stack around my wrist and mix with some gold toned bracelets or cuffs I already own. Like Liz is sporting above.

They’re like little summer keepsakes - each bracelet standing for its own fun memory - and it’s a fun way to add a bit of color to any neutral colored wardrobe. Plus, the best thing about them is that they’re water proof (at least until the end of summer).
