Wonderland

The Fashion Week has wrapped, which means two things: We have six months to brainstorm how to incorporate a lot more yellow into our spring 2019 wardrobes, and we now know which fall 2018 runway trends actually translate it to street style. Every season this stylish set gets around a handful of It Items from the collections just hitting retail, which sets off a sort of chain reaction: They’re photographed in those pieces, those images make their way around the Internet, people start inquiring about said pieces, and the market is suddenly overwhelmed with them and their look-alikes. You don’t have to wait long to cop the biggest trends for this season—many of the street-style crowd’s picks are already available for purchase (and budget-friendly).

 

Arty Animal Prints

One of the season’s coolest approaches to prints is to make an arty interpretation of some of the most recognizable animal patterns—like color-blocking and abstracting zebra stripes. You can go all in with a patterned one-piece, or ease into it with a discreet accessory.

Scarf Accents

The most exciting fashion trends are the ones you can fashion out of things you already own—and whether it’s your go-to fall accessory or that special something you picked out at a thrift store, a silky scarf is it for fall 2018. You can tie it to your ponytail or style it as a headband; you can wear it as a belt or affix it to your tote bag. There are even blouses and dresses that come with a neck scarf built in, so you don’t even have to think about grabbing one on your way out of the house.

Popover Blouses

Short-sleeve, popover-style button-downs come with a hint of nostalgia (they feel like something the kids at Rydell High School would wear to their local diner) and comfort (you could just be wearing a pajama top, who’s to say?) And they can easily be swapped into your wardrobe for a T-shirt or a flowy blouse, if you want something that feels a little more polished.

Statement Snakeskin

If you needed further proof that snakeskin is on its way to replace leopard as fashion’s favorite animal print…

 

OCTOBER. Fill your month with pumpkin spice and everything nice

Ever wore an all white outfit in fall? I think it is so cool to wear a white look with a beige hat. Especially in pumpkin season with those beautiful orange colors. So I wear a lace white romantic top with a cosy offwhite knit. The top is a little a satin feeling like this wonderful pieceSummer may be the season of maxi dresses and flip flops, but it is also undoubtedly the season of white clothes. Crisp, all-white outfits are as much a part of the season as beach days and festivals. All white is a classic look that isn’t going away, so it’s time to get on it. One of the benefits of all-white clothes is that they’re versatile. I think it is also perfect for Fall. White can work for day, evening and even at the office. A long white maxi sweater from Elizabeth and James and coordinating jacket are chic and infinitely more interesting. Let’s not forget that white clothes are the perfect canvas to show off that golden tan (real or faux). Or that a breezy white outfit can transport us to exotic locales — even if we’re really just braving the humid city streets. Don’t fret about wine spills and lipstick smudges on all-white clothes. Embrace the refreshing look and maybe keep that stain remover pen handy in case of a klutzy mishap. Get inspired by these gorgeous white outfits from the streets and the runways. What do you think of this white trend? I really like it. Let me know in the comment section. 

 

 

 

The fall of my dreams

Hi everyone. How are you?! This was my last weekend at National Parc Hoge Veluwe. The weather was so amazing, so we bought a ticket to enter and we also could pick a bike to ride around the parc. It was so so great. The fall colors at the woods are so beautiful. I needed to make a couple of pictures over here. I am wearing a lace, black, see-through dress, which I really like. Here you found more these black midi dresses. Right now I wear them all black, but maybe it will be better to add some burgundy to it! What do you think? Something what would be also really cool is add a belt bag to it. The dress has a little taille, but you can’t see it so well. So it looks much better when you add a belt bag from Marc Jacobs for example. The belt bags are so easy to use to have your hands free. I am thinking about using it in the gym, haha such another subject. But I am back at the gym. But now I made a schedule on my phone, but I don’t want to leave my phone on the ground. These beltbags would be perfect for the gym, but I don’t know which one would be the best. Maybe this  small sportive one from Rag & Bone?! Let me know what you use. Okay enough for today. See you maybe tomorrow! Have a great evening. Kisses!

Neon for days

Hi everyone. How are you? What do you think of this cool trend: NEON! I really like it. Especially in yellow or green. I think green is the most upcoming at the moment. Now more about the trend; we assumed we reached peak neon back in the 80s and early 90s but apparently, we were mistaken. Lately, it seems like every designer is incorporating a touch of fluorescent brights in their collections. And we’re not just talking athleisure. We’ve seen pops in red carpet-worthy gowns, suits, minidresses, pants and sheer pieces. We first noticed the neon during the Spring 2018 presentations. Rihanna was a big fan, giving almost every piece in her Fenty x Puma some kind of fluorescent accent. Marc Jacobs was all about the 80s outsize power suit this season, even supplying one in neon orange complete with a neon pink fannypack. Jeremy Scott brightened up his already colorful collection with neon green trim on a couple of minidresses. Neon was also spotted on the runways of Delpozo, Maryam Nassir Zadeh, Carolina Herrera, Prabal Gurung and Christian Siriano.

For Fall 2018, the trend expanded. Prada kept things sheer and bright with neon even extending to the scarf collars. Maryam Nassir Zadeh continued embracing fluorescents by showing a retina-burning green/yellow dress and pants in two separate lewks. And Krizia gave us a safety orange belted cardigan draped off a sheer neon orange turtleneck maxi dress. Sonia Rykiel, Moschino, Tom Ford and Balmain also gave nods to neon. The shocking shades have already found their way to the streets. When in doubt, grab a pair of neon pink Nike shorts and team with a Victorian blouse plus combat boots. Don’t be afraid to layer your neon by matching your vibrant Burberry trench to your shirt. Or top off utility pants featuring neon orange trim with a neon orange crop top.

Outfit of the day – leopard print

Animal print shoes

Good morning everyone. How are you today?  This morning I woke up in the beautiful Wikkelhouse, the one I showed on my blog yesterday. It was such an amazing experience!! I can really recommend it. So I had an amazing breakfast buffet. So that is always a perfect start of the day before going to the office. Today we are talking about these cool boots. First I thought what kind of shoes do I need for this new season? I already have a pair of black boots from Sacha, which are exactly the same model. And they are so comfy and so easy to wear. And this season it is all about the animal print. So these boots were perfect for me. Comfy, but trendy 😉 Have you see my whole blogpost where I talk about the animal print trend? You can find it over here. I always pick the comfy shoes when it comes to an everyday pair. I wish I was the one who can wear pumps all day long. They also have amazing pumps at Sacha. You can find them here. What is your favorite one? I definitely will go for the slingback heels. They look so amazing! If I could attend the Paris Fashion Week I definitely would wear these ones. That would be a dream to me! To wear something from a big designer, wear those beautiful slingback heels en have perfect styled hair. Hope I can be there next season. Have you ever been to something that big? Have a great new week!
