LACE UP TOP

clarks-denim-dricoper-denim-gucci-lace-up-top-ripped-jeans-shein-shoulder-bag  

The ‘so very fashionable’ lace up tops that we are seeing everywhere now mostly come in a black tight sexy version. I’ve been looking for a more relaxed one to be able to wear during the day and in a light colour for spring.

I couldn’t be happier when I found it at Shein and coming on a budget price too!

Amsterdam still allows denim and long sleeves (.. not sure if that’s an advantage with June at the door), but I am excited to be wearing this top many more ways during summer evenings with shorts and flat sandals.

MY PARIS: GUIDE TO THE BEST PLACES TO HANG OUT (PART 2)

.. Here we are for the second part of my Paris guide in collaboration with OtterBox! If the first two days was about eating and drinking .. The following days have been erhh.. more eating and drinking (!!!), but also shopping and parisian breathtaking views from some amazing roof terrace that you HAVE TO visit!

The Broken Arm is a cafe I highly recommend if you happen to walk around Le Marais! For a healthy lunch, some coffee art, which also tastes the way it looks, and the minimalistic interior where I lost myself taking shots of (see my Instagram for even more pictures!). If you are looking for good food and simplicity accompanied by great quality, this is your spot!

Actually few steps away, literally on the same street, I died for the yummiest burgers at PNY Burgers! The additional good thing of these places is that they are located in a very cool area so you can easily spend the entire day here hopping from one cafe to a restaurant to some shopping and window watching.. just to burn out all the calories you have been inhaling (opsss!). The atmosphere and interior are very american, as a difference from the other places I am showing you but well worth a meal! When everything is photogenic and the food is awesome, you can make sure you are going to see me at one point!

Sartorially speaking, during this trip I really enjoyed wearing my new printed sweaters! They’re really trendy at the moment and adding that hip touch I really like.. Shame if you missed my snap chat since Emma was twinning me! (in case you don’t want to miss the next snap my username is ‘nickyinsideout’) 😉

We had a really nice coffee at Cafe Charlot sitting outside people watching-holiday hobby! The interior is really cool but we couldn’t help enjoying the warm weather! Right in the middle of Paris on a busy street I could have spent hours sitting here working on my computer! With the classic bistro look and the coolest signs on every corner we also got one of the most friendly service over all the places we visited these days!

When you think of the every day french style, the first thing that comes up your mind is breton print.. Yes it is! I might not got the memo but I just loved strolling the street of Paris in my new sweaters. I paired the oversized shape with skinny jeans, with rips of course,  adding a feminine touch with gold jewellery. I think summer won’t stop me by keep sporting this printed sweaters trend.. I will just have to swap jeans with shorts or a mini skirt. But now for the Paris weather was just perfect and I just wanted to shoot in front of each of these magnificent doors in Le Marais.

I thought it wouldn’t be a proper Paris guide without some shopping. Indeed I could list you all the french amazing designers shop to visit, and we did visit most of them (opsss!) but I thought the one worth mentioning at this time was the Anine Bing store newly opened in Paris. Straight from LA with the right summer vibe is a mix of boho meets relaxed and sexy at the same time. One of the coolest brands at the moment!

If you scream for ice-cream while walking your days around this incredible city, you’ve to pay a visit to Amorino. From Le Marais is walking distance, they have all sorts of gelato flavours (and this is coming from a picky italian… ) and put it together shaped like a flower. It’s a winner! Good for your belly, your eyes.. and your instagram feed! 😉

The last spot I want to show you is Le Perchoir du Marais. The main reason to go there, is not only the wine – I know, that’s always a good reason – but it’s the view, and it’s just fantastic! During summer nights this place must be amazing.. Just imagine all the city lights! Located on top of the BHV’s store it’s the perfected location to end an afternoon of shopping with a sunset, if you are lucky enough!.

MY PARIS: GUIDE TO THE BEST PLACES TO HANG OUT (PART 1)

When OtterBox asked me to write a list of my favourite Paris places to visit, I was extremely happy! OtterBox is a company I am enjoying a lot working with since I am finding their products of great quality and their people always show a high level of professionality. This is very important to me when I am recommending you a product.

Having said that, Paris is without any doubt my favourite city in Europe. Moreover, I am enjoying a lot lately mixing fashion and lifestyle in my photography, so this project has been one of my favourites so far!

It all started at our hotel in rue La Fayette, Best Western Premier Opera Faubourg, a 4 stars with a central location that couldn’t have been more perfect for our needs. A cute room and a oh! so necessary parisian balcony to enjoy the view, the architecture and the wine after the baby was asleep at night.. Yes, Emma came with us this time! (So, for the ones of you travelling with kids, I am going to show you a list of places where it also possible to bring your babies along during the day!)

When we arrived the weather was sunny but not too warm, just very enjoyable and with the perfect late afternoon light for our first photo shoot. We headed to Palais-Royal, absolutely one of my favourite places. Not only one of the most – if not the most- coveted shooting location for bloggers but a hidden place from the busy parisian roads where you will find a beautiful garden surrounded by designer boutiques. It’s quite populated and busy but at the same time it offers quiet spots under some gorgeous linden trees.

The first of my favourite Paris hangs out starts with a good cappuccino (what else!!). Cafe Kitsune is the perfect cutest discovery inside Palais-Royal. It’s not the easiest cafe to be found but well worth the walk. I would recommend to visit it on a sunny day so you could sit outside overlooking the gorgeous courtyard.

Another parisian must is Laduree. You will be in for a real treat which will please not only your mouth but your eyes too. Everywhere you are going to put your eyes on will be extremely cute and coloured in pastels. It is the dessert heaven where the macaroons are stock up to the ceiling and you just don’t want to stop eating them. Everything is just perfection , the presentation, the atmosphere, the sweets.. I couldn’t help it buying some extra to take home with me!

Another must is dinner at Hotel Costes. Trendy and sexy, with wonderful food, drinks and the best music. The vibe will make you feel part of the parisian creme and the staff is gorgeously selected.. No joke, everyone looks just out of a magazine! No wonder is one of the fashion week places to be.

Day 2 has seen me embracing the parisian look of red and blue stripes. Unfortunately, not as expert as the ‘how to be parisian’ masterpiece, but holidays was a good excuse to try my new overall and I must say you are going to see a lot of this from now on, it’s just a wardrobe must, comfy and edgy at the same time.

The plan for our second day was to visit another two wonderful parisian spots and once again, we were not disappointed.. This was actually the best afternoon!

Since the weather was being sweet with us once again we could enjoy an aperitivo sitting outside the tables of Cafe de Flore. Everything is iconic here and it’s the perfect picture of how you imagine a parisian cafe and ideal for people watching, if you know what I mean! It’s a bit of a cliche place if you want, but in my opinion it has to be experienced and enjoyed.

Last but not least of this first part, my very favourite restaurant of this trip so far was Ralph. The yard is the masterpiece of this restaurant and after seeing dozens of burgers passing by I decided to join the festival and it was indeed delicious.. bit pricey but considering the whole experience, I wouldn’t think it twice. I am a huge fan! The setting is outstanding and the people beyond lovely. Surronded by green plants and red roses is the perfect american high society vibe of Ralph Lauren. Be sure to book a table outside and leave it a few hours to enjoy the food, the wine and the vibe!

As if we needed another reason to go shopping, right? . . But, if we invest in basics, in my opinion it’s always money well spent! Together with denim shorts and white t-shirts, what it won’t miss my summer wardrobe is silk tops.

Lace and daywear doesn’t normally walk hand in hand but if we effortlessly pair it with distressed denim, sneakers and a boy style shirt it’s a piece that we can take from day to night and it’s worth the little investment. It’s a very simple and effective way to add a feminine touch to a boyish ensemble.

YOUR CASUAL LOOK FROM DAY TO NIGHT

I love to shop for items that are perfect for an every day use like this Tommy Hilfiger stripy sweater. You can never go wrong with stripes and if you just add some fancy accessories to spice it up you are are going to give the right personality to your outfit.

It was the perfect casual cool ensemble to stroll around The Hague on last week sunny weekend! Blue stripy sweater, skinny ripped jeans and matching grey Onitsuka tiger created a comfy, yet stylish look.

Off duty looks are always my favourites and since the sun is still not strong in Holland (we still need a jacket most of the days) I paired my new Colmar jacket. It has the perfect biker jacket design but in a lightest material than regular leather. A match made in heaven for transitional weather!

In case you’d like to take this casual look into the evening, it’s possible and easy! The jewellery already allows you to dress up the casual sweater. You just need to add sandals with heels or pointy pumps and knot the jacket around your waist (it’s very cool at the moment) and you are ready for an aperitivo in a cool bar in the city!
