You might have noticed – if you follow me on Instagram – I took some personal time off and booked a trip to New York with my love. Winding down is something I think I want to do every now and then, but somehow I […]

Trends. I’ver never really know what to do with them. Even though I definitely don’t consider myself an authority when it comes to having the most unique personal style, I’ve never been one to follow all trends either. On the contrary, for most of my […]
Hurray, it’s Monday! Which means a fresh new start of the week, new opportunities and.. a new outfit. Literally, because my entire outfit is new (except for the bag, that’s an oldie). To celebrate Fashionchick’s Shopping Days (on October 29th and 30th), I picked up this black and grey ensemble at Friday in Amsterdam and felt instantly ready for Fall. To be honest, I feel like I was born ready for Fall. It’s my favourite season wardrobe-wise, but after having lost some weight I’m literally drowning in last year’s pieces. I’m a firm oversized-fan, but believe me when I say that how most of my clothes currently fit is not a good look ;)
Anyway, really really happy to have added these coated jeans, this longer length shirt and that chunky knit to the wardrobe. That knit is available in a gorgeous green colour as well, so I might as well pick that one up during the Fashionchick Shopping Days and safe 20% of the full price online at the Fashionchick website, or in store at Friday, Urban Outfitters, River Island and many more awesome stores. Interested in shopping with discount as well? Keep an eye on the website for all the right information.

You know one thing I always try to do when buying new stuff? Whether it’s furniture, shoes or kitchen equipment (as if..): I always try to justify my purchases. Doesn’t always mean I always make the right choices, but at least I try to justify it. This winter I bought those boots that might not have been the best idea budget wise at that moment, but it was a perfect replacement for the basic black boots I’ve been wearing for years already. The ones that in the meantime had a cost per wear of maybe 10 cents and that were going to be replaced by a pair that will do the exact same. See? Purchase justified.
I tend to have another way of justifying my urge to keep on adding coats to my larger-than-ever collection. I just love coats. They spice up every look, even if they’re super boring (I prefer to call them ‘basic’). They keep you warm. Who doesn’t want to stay nice and warm? And besides that, in the Netherlands you need to wear your coat all the time (Rain. Wind. Snow. Cold. You get me.). Since I’d rather have options to go for, I keep on adding coats – especially long ones – to my wardrobe like my life depends on them (or wait..? ;)). But finding the perfect ankle length navy blue version – the type of navy that is almost black, but in fact is navy – turned out to be a pretty hard thing to do. I like my coats to be oversized – just like I like almost everything in life oversized – but when a coat is well structured around the shoulders, of course I want it to fit properly, I want it to be made out of a nice fabric (preferably at least 70% wool) and I want to to be at least a little bit affordable. I don’t mind spending a certain amount of money on something, but I can’t risk a heart attack and wearing a super-duper expensive coat during those raining days will certainly cause one. You might have guessed this: I found it. At OTTO. And I’m wearing it in this very post. What do you think?

Ahhh, pretty pretty Amsterdam. Even though I’ve been living in this wonderful city quite a while now, it keeps on surprising me how many faces this wonderful city can show us. I love Amsterdam in Summer, but wouldn’t wanna miss out on the amazing colours […]
