SPRING LAYERING

SPRING LAYERING

I myself would have never thought of putting all these pieces together (and I might have even looked ridiculous if I did) but I love how Claire worked this cool mix of super girly items – hello gorgeous Sophia Webster mules! – with a Sandro bomber and a boyfriend denim. Gorgeous Spring layering, perfect for …

TRANSITIONING

TRANSITIONING

Even though this is more of a Fall outfit rather than one for Spring PLUS she’s secretly wearing a down jacket underneath that pretty pretty sweater (which is a brilliant styling idea for the colder days if you ask me), this gets me so excited to get rid of having to wear a big fat …

CHANEL MÉTIERS D’ART

CHANEL MÉTIERS D’ART

With Chanel showing its new collection this morning in Paris (in an hour or so) and only a few shows left on the calendar, Paris Fashion Week is almost coming to my end. And with it, my fomo. Yes, I am bummed I am not in Paris and yes I am bummed that I can’t …

F / FRENCH STYLE

F / FRENCH STYLE

Can we talk about the French and their je ne sais quoi again? Or should I say Parisiennes? While I love the Scandinavians and their super simple style with a fun twist, no one does it better than the ultra chic women in Paris.

VERONIKA

VERONIKA

Veronika (style editor for German Harpers Bazaar) has this magic spell around her that turns me in this shopping monster that wants to buy literally everything she wears. The thing is, our body types are pretty much on the opposite sides of the spectrum. So whatever looks good on her, doesn’t necessarily look good on …

MULTITASKING

MULTITASKING

Question. How good are you at multitasking? As in, can you text, bike, do your make-up, call a friend, focus, sing and dance all at the same time? Ok, these are obviously a little bit too many to handle, but what is it with us women being able to easily do 3 (maybe even 4) …

POSTCARD FROM GRAND PALAIS

POSTCARD FROM GRAND PALAIS

I loved how Ece Sükan wore her simple mini dress with a refreshing pair of white calf length boots after Chanel outside Grand Palais in Paris.

MY FIRST CHANEL SHOW

MY FIRST CHANEL SHOW

When I got the phone call (let’s just call this THE phone call), I was riding my bike from the physical therapist back to the office after having had my first dry needling experience in my right upper thigh (let’s leave this story for another time, shall we?). It nearly knocked me off my bike, …

CAMO PRINT

CAMO PRINT

Honestly, I have always felt like camo print was a bit tricky. To pull off, but also in general. As a kid, I once dressed up as a soldier in a head to toe blue camouflage suit for Dutch carnaval. After that, I decided to never wear this print ever again (and also never to …

UNEXPECTED COLOR COMBINATIONS THAT WORK

UNEXPECTED COLOR COMBINATIONS THAT WORK

Taken into consideration that I personally don’t wear too much brightness on a regular basis, this might sound a bit odd. But what I find the most inspiring – over anything else – is when I see fellow fashion enthusiasts passing by in  unexpected color combinations. Something that I wouldn’t even throw together if I …
