SNAPCHAT OR INSTAGRAM STORIES?

When Instagram introduced Stories, we all (aka social media fanatics) got kind of excited! Then we found ourself in a limbo.. What’s now about Snapchat?

My first reaction was on using both platforms. On Instagram I have a much larger audience but at them same time I find Snapchat more fun.

After of couple of days of twinning I found myself bored of sharing the same moments on two platforms, a joke said twice wasn’t maybe than funny anymore and most of the time the moment was gone by the time I was switching..

At the moment I am leaving Snapchat behind. Apparently I can still survive without a puppy face πŸ˜‰ Β I might check in here and then but you will mainly find me on Instagram Stories.

I do not share myself brushing my teeth or tidying the house – that’s why they are called highlights, right? I share daily what’s behind the scene of my blog, my life with Emma, recommend places I visit, events and anything related to fashion.

I did enjoy a lot sharing with you this week the behind the scene of this post created with Scotch & Soda. In case you missed it, I visited the Blauw kitchen in the Pijp area on Tuesday, the cutest denim concept store. Β I tried on the whole Amsterdam Blauw collection and loved receiving your messages about your favourite pieces! The messages I loved the most were the ones saying that ‘it was like spending the day shopping with me’.

I feel that now on Instagram we can really tell the full story behind an outfit shot. The day of the photo shoot, I loved sharing videos of the details of the clothes, the contrast colour lining of the shirt and coat, the shining details of the sweater, the ‘love’ patch on the inside of the denim and the quality of the fabrics.

I picked pieces which really reflect my style. The simplicity of a boyfriend jeans paired with a striped shirt and a contrasting striped coat was the ones which immediately caught my attention at the store. I put them together for you in a very wearable way for this end of summer transitional weather.. when we already want to jump into the fall colour palette but cannot leave behind our statement sandals.

This week I became very fond of Scotch & Soda, so surely I will show you more of this Blauw collection very soon.. In the meantime, see you on Instagram Stories and who knows, until the day the funny filters will make an appearance, I might not resist checking in Snapchat now and then!

ME TIME

Today I am talking about that little bit of time for yourself..

I’ve always been a very social person, feeling at best in the middle of people, with my friends, attending events, dinner parties, clubs, late evenings. When I became a mother, this naturally changed. I still love my social life, as hard to organise as it sounds, but still possible.. Now, I also started to really enjoy those rare moments with myself.

  celine-frame-denim-freshcotton-laura-gravestock-luckyeyes-sandro-paris-timex   celine-frame-denim-freshcotton-laura-gravestock-luckyeyes-sandro-paris-timex  

I treasure every moment with Emma and besides blogging, the past year I’ve been a full time mom (Emma will start daycare three days a week in September) but recharging my batteries and especially refreshing my spirit by taking some time to myself on a regular basis was the key.

One of my favourite things to do by myself is to try out new coffee spots in the city (this is HALTE 3) while Emma spends some time with her father and I spend time with me, myself and I..

Of course this time is counted by the minute so a good cappuccino in a beautiful cafe and some well deserved ‘silence’ is all I need. Actually, what I also need is a good bunch of pretty accessories with me.. and my new Timex watch is perfect to scan those precious moments and make sure I am home in time to see Emma’s smiling face when she sees me coming back.

I chose a man watch model because I really like the tan colour of the strap at the moment, the big size and I love to wear it with contrasting feminine jewellery.

Till the next cappuccino then.. my little tip of the day, if you are a mother or you are planning to be one day.. while you are enjoying the blessing of motherhood, never forget the time for yourself!

CAMOUFLAGE

If you’ve been reading my blog and follow my Instagram for a while now, you might have noticed – enjoyed – found inspiration – had enough.. hopefully not! πŸ˜‰ that I am a big fan of wardrobe essentials, denim and non-colors..

  bag-camouflage-Celine-wedge-dricoper-na-kd-republica-moda-schutz   bag-camouflage-Celine-wedge-dricoper-na-kd-republica-moda-schutz   bag-camouflage-Celine-wedge-dricoper-na-kd-republica-moda-schutz   bag-camouflage-Celine-wedge-dricoper-na-kd-republica-moda-schutz  

What can be more effortless that boyfriend jeans and cropped top during summer time? Since fashion blogging and fashion photography is my job, I do get overloaded with clothes.. True that! But feeling good in what I am wearing and staying true to my style without experimenting too much it’s, to me, the most important.. and nowadays I do not accept a job unless it’s a brand that truly reflects my style I feel confident in sharing it with all of you.

Here comes the most coveted question I am being asked these days.. Why I hardly, almost never, show my face on my blog and Instagram?

Because the hobby that I loved much enough to become my job is not necessarily about my daily mood or my daily life.. It’s about a passion for fashion, style, fabrics, photography, lighting, angle.. not necessarily about my face. It’s about what I am wearing, the timeless pieces I invest in, my vision of it and the way I put them together.. About what inspires me, what’s trending at the moment in a way we can wear it on the streets, about the details.. not necessarily a full face shot.

Like the look I am sharing with you today.. It’s so ‘me’ since I feel at the same time comfortable and chic in it. Nothing beats a pair of boyfriend jeans paired with a feminine top and a new bag that, as a contrast, is anything but basic.

The bag is from Republica Moda, a website specialised in latin american premium fashion brands.Β I finally added some camouflage to my wardrobe because it stays true my my regular non-colour palette but it’s that kind of statement I always like to add to a casual chic outfit built on basics.

With regards to showing you my full face, I didn’t change my mind but I did appreciate all the very kind requests.. Luckly enough, nowadays we have snap chat (username ‘nickyinsideout’) and Instagram Stories which give some insights of our daily life between the outfit pictures and my face (or half of it) is there daily with my darling baby Emma!
