WHITE SHIRT


Shirt, Zara

As part of my mission to put more effort into dressing, here is something which makes that less of a challenge. Something that makes you look instant chic when you put it on. Something that will never ever go out of style.

The white shirt. One of my all time favorite classics.

I already found the perfect long sleeve one two years ago (it is by Bruuns Bazaar), but it was not until last week that I bumped into this cropped and slightly oversized beauty by Zara.

Teamed up with cut-off denim shorts and some simple sandals makes my Summer uniform a fact.

Any thoughts on white shirts?

BEATING LAZINESS



Denim blouse, Zara; top, unknown; jeans, Paige; sneakers, Superga

When I had to describe myself in a couple of words, lazy would be most definitely be included.

Now do not get me wrong, it is not the case that prefer to spend every weekend in bed and just watch series (although I do not mind doing so every once in a while). Or go to school every day by public transport rather than by bicycle (Amsterdam is way too pretty for that!). It is just that I am lazy when it comes to how I look and how I dress.

I do not know why - or actually I do, I just love snoozing - but I always tend to put minimal effort into dressing in the morning. Top + jeans + sneakers and I am good to go. Lately however, I am trying to break through this daily routine by looking a little more... dressed up? And one of the most easy way to accomplish this is by going for something more exciting than the usual black/white/grey t-shirt. And if you would ask me, this mesh top is certainly more exciting. It is all about playing with textures.

Easy dressing, but with a teeny tiny spicy touch. Yeah, I could live with that.

TEAM SUPERSTAR



Sneakers, Adidas

I know I promised myself (and my mom) that I would not buy new shoes any time soon after this huge investment, but I just could not help it. As from last Wednesday I am on Team Superstar and I can tell you, that feels gooooood.

Now I only need to know which team you are on, is it Superstar or Stan Smith? Or no team at all, which is of course quite possible.

Psssstt... I actually ordered another pair of sneakers too, shame on me!

ELEVEN³ APRIL

















Blazer, H&M; case, Case Scenario; scarf, Cos; notebook, Keri Smith; make-up bag, House Doctor; t-shirt, Diesel; earrings, Monki; sunglasses, Monokel; loafers, Bionda Castana (Young British Designers); bikini, Marysia; salve, Rosebud

Here is what is on my mind in April.

Boyfriend. Never no boyfriend pieces.

Marble. The hit of 2014 and I absolutely do not mind. This case, yes please.

Spray print scarf. Lightweight and not your average scarf; Spring necessity!

Journal. For all my weird thoughts.

Make-up bag. I know I not really do make-up, but I can use it for my pencils too. Or as a toilet bag.

Boobs. No explanation needed.

Clothes pin. Appearance can be deceiving... these are actually earrings.

Sunnies. Clearly an instant outfit maker.

Leopard. Actually, leopard is always on my mind. But these loafers are just tha bom!

Scalloped bandeau. The colour, the shape. It is so cute and I want it!

Multitasking miracle. This salve is just all a woman could ever wish for.

BEAR BELLY



Jacket, H&M The New Icons; top, Monki; trousers, Zara; boots, Balenciaga; sunnies, Zara

I must admit, never did I really jump on the crop top bandwagon. Partly because I felt slightly uncomfortable wearing it (I mean, the belly is a difficult zone for most of us women), partly because I never knew how to combine it without looking too 'naked'.

Now I have been hanging out with Sonja for a while now (yup, she is the one responsible for all the pictures!) and her motto almost is ''never buy something you can not crop''. Hence it happened I removed the dust from my crop top, just to see if I would still feel the same about a bear belly once I had tried it on.

And, brace yourself, I did not! Teamed up with my fave leather jacket and boots I felt close to cool.

So this post I dedicate to you, Sonja. Thank you for making me realize crop tops are actually kind of awesome.
