Personal - 23




I wish I could've stayed 21 the rest of my life but today I'm already celebrating my 23rd birthday! The years fly by so fast, don't they?

PS. Today I'm being treated on a sushi dinner.. I can't wait!

Outfit - Basic Black







Outfit: Top - H&M, Trousers - Zara, Heels - Zara, Watch - ASOS, Bracelet - Sam Friday


Back to blogging again! I had the most amazing weekend ever so I haven't had time to blog. I went to a concert of the angel of Lebanon; Fairouz. She is a living legend and it was wonderful seeing and hearing her sing. Unfortunately it was forbidden to take photos of Fairouz but I will post photos of what I wore to the concert soon.

Back to this outfit post - I needed some nice pair of black trousers and I found them at the Zara Sale where I also scored these heels. Did you do some Sale shopping?

Outfit - To the Max










Outfit: Maxi skirt - H&M, Bright yellow basic t-shirt - H&M, Pink patent belt - V&D, Silver clutch - H&M Fashion Against Aids


A simple outfit can be made interesting by the use of colour. There are so many colours to choose from in store and I love to play around with them.

Outfit - Bare midriff









Outfit: Denim blouse - ASOS, Top and tube skirt - H&M, Pistol ankle boots - Sasha, leopard print tote - H&M, Watch - ASOS


The bare midriff trend is something I've been wanting to try for a while. It takes me way back to the 90's when everyone showed their belly. It feels strange having my midriff exposed, are you going to try this trend?
My new watch is from ASOS and it's the perfect accessory to add to almost any outfit. Usually I don't really wear watches, I always look at my phone for the time. But you don't always have to wear a watch for practical reasons, as I said; it can be the perfect accessory.

Focus - Versace for H&M









These last few days everyone was talking about who will be the next guest designer for H&M. Did you guess right?
Hennes & Mauritz has added Italian brand Versace to its exclusive list of guest designers, offering two collections made by Donatella Versace. The first Versace collection will be available in stores and online November 17th. An additional pre-spring collection will be sold in selected countries in January.
I'm excited to see the 2 collections, are you?

Outfit - Maxi to Mini











Outfit: Pistol anke boots - Sacha Sweater - H&M, Leopard maxi skirt worn as dress - Primark, Bag - Marc. B., Ring - Asos


The weather in the Netherlands is terrible for this time of year so unfortunately I can't really wear summer clothes or sandals.
Today I decided to be a little creative with the clothes that I have. I'm wearing a maxi skirt as a dress and an oversized black sweater tied in a knot at the bottom.

Leila Loves - Red + Pink






Red and pink are normally colours one would probably not mix together but from the first time I saw these colour blocking beauties, I fell in love. I finally received the Asos Heist bow platform sandals this week and I can't wait to experiment with different outfits.

Outfit - Blue leopard









Outfit: Top - Zara, Tube skirt - H&M, Leopard print loafers - Zara, Leopard shopper and cuff bracelets - H&M


The blue skies are back and so is my favorite coloured top from Zara. Today I mixed it up with a tube skirt and leopard print accessories. Animal prints seem to never go out of style, they keep popping up on the runways every season.

Outfit - Lace-up shorts









Outfit: Lace up leather shorts - H&M, Pistol boots - Sascha, Blazer - Bershka, T-shirt - Primark, Ring - ASOS


Lace up shorts have been on my mind ever since seeing the Isabel Marant pink lace up shorts. Although these are not pink they come close enough to what I was looking for.

Focus - Yves Saint Laurent






Stefano Pilati is splashing some colour in YSL’s Resort 2012 Collection. The pieces that really caught my eye where these two red trench coats.
Trench coats are a basic item that almost every woman owns(including me), most of the time in black or beige. But after seeing these Yves Saint Laurent trench coats, I'm on the hunt for a red one!

Outfit - Transparent










Outfit: Top - Zara, Skinny - H&M, Transparent bag - Fashion Against Aids, Pumps - Zara, Cuff bracelets - H&M


A basic outfit today. To make it more interesting I accessorized with my transparent FAA bag. Everyone keeps asking me why I'm carrying a see through bag.. Well I have no secrets and I wear what I like. What do you think of a see through bag?

Inspiration - Kate Moss










Kate Moss and Mario Testino spent five days in both Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, shooting for Vogue Brazil's 36th anniversary edition. This is such a colourful editorial, it makes me want to pack my bags and fly to Brazil!

Outfit - Blue split









Outfit: High split skirt - Monki, Pink patent belt - V&D, Sandels - Tango, T-shirt - Primark, Yellow clutch - H&M, Cuff bracelets - H&M


The high split skirt/dress trend is a trend I really like. That's why, when I saw this colourful skirt at Monki, I had to have it. As I explained in my previous post, I love colour. So with this look I mixed a couple bright colours together.
