As I am writing this post from Amsterdam, with a heart full being reunited with my little Emma, I can’t help being already a little nostalgic of London. Especially when you are lucky enough of getting such sunny days, the energy you get from this city is just unique. These 4 days in London have been like ‘going back home’ for me. After living there for seven years, it still feels like I never left. I’ve spent a lot of time with my bestie Lorna and met all my londoner fellow bloggers at the Apartment while taking over the Otterbox_Europe instagram account. It’s been a fun long weekend!

For my first look of this fashion week I chose to mix nineties vibes adding very feminine touches with dainty jewellery. Navy, black and white with gold details. We couldn’t be luckier with the weather since I really wanted to show you my new ThingsEyeLove jewels and the sun played a great part in making them shine so beautifully. I will keep showing you these pieces in the following fashion week posts because they’re just too pretty!

STATEMENT TEE AND VINTAGE LEVI’S

   

What’s better than ripped denim and a white t-shirt? A great start if you ask me.. But to be a bit less humble than plain white this time, I wanted to show you this cool statement one from Rock & Model.

     

When I was asked to style this t-shirt, I immediately thought about vintage Levi’s. There is something about boyfriend ripped jeans that makes a t-shirt absolutely necessary. No matter if you prefer a casual look or something more polished with sky high heels, there is always room for a statement t-shirt in your closet.

I paired my new t-shirt and my favourite boyfriend jeans with this oversized blazer and dressed it up with high heels for a smarter approach. This combo would also look great with sneakers, moving the jacket across your shoulders for a more casual, yet chic, look.

On a side note, I received several messages on my Instagram about these vintage Levi’s. They are very popular at the moment so, if you are thinking of getting a pair, these are the classic 501s. According to my experience, when you decide to go jeans vintage shopping, first of all you need some patience.

Sizes vary from year to year so you will probably end up trying on dozens of them before finding the right fit. Don’t get scared when you find out your regular size fits too small.. I did! Before finding out vintage sizes are smaller than our regulars. Expect to go up at least one size, if not two, depending on the fit you are looking for. In my case, I wanted a boyfriend fit so I went up three sizes! Finally, if they end up being too long you can get them tailored. I like them rolled up so I didn’t need any alteration but I might have them shortened closer to summer!

Good luck with your research! It’s fun!

WINTER (SUN)NIES

SONY DSC SONY DSC SONY DSC

If there is something I don’t like, is being negative. But have you checked the weather forecast in Holland for the coming week? Only rain (!!!), everyday (!!!). I only have two choices: either run to my laptop to book a last minute holiday to a sunny tropical destination or, be be a committed new mother, and enjoy the plan of snuggling my baby girl for the whole weekend indoor while I show you these shots we took last week over a beautiful sunny day.

As an accessories lover, sunglasses are always a daily essentials for me. Not only for my instagram flat lays, I actually wear them in winter time too. Especially when I discover a brand, like these ZeroUV, who is designing cool shapes at a very affordable price, I commit to it. I mean, I do own several designer sunglasses but how fun it is to change them often and play around a bit?

After all, I am sure Emma won’t mind if I spend her nap time shopping for more!
