Outfit - Pastel denim









Location - JBR beach/walk, Dubai

Couple days ago I said I wish I wore pastel denim. I guess I kinda made my wish come true, in a different colour but its still pastel so who cares? Not me.
I'm wearing it with black to tone the look down a bit but I will definitely try to wear it with other colours than the safe black. To be continued...

Outfit - Colour










Location - Riva beach club, The Palm, Dubai

I love this furry jumper but it leaves its hairs everywhere, you have been warned.
The skirt I bought during the Dubai Shopping Festival at Zara. Orange and green are not two colours one would normally combine together but I didn't want to bring out one of my black bags again. I like the way it turned out and that's what fashion is all about, think outside the box.

Outfit: Skirt - Zara | Furry jumper - H&M trend | Watch bracelet - ASOS |

Wish I Wore - Pastel



Ph. Net-a-porter edited by me

Pastel colours are starting to pop up in almost every store and I'm loving it.
Pastels are easier to try out then the bold and bright colour blocking trend from last year and no you don't have to wait to wear it until the summer comes. The denim pieces give you the option of brightening up the winter months, so today I Wish I Wore pastel denim.

Look: Pastel denim - Etoile Isabel Marant | Beaded silk-satin blouse - Elizabeth and James | Printed leather clutch - Marni | Heels - Zara |

Outfit - Black & Yellow





Location: Burj Khalifa, Dubai

The days, weeks, months are flying by in Dubai. Because the temperatures are so nice here, it doesn't feel like winter at all.
But these past couple days it was grey and nippy and I finally realized; it is January.
Also I could finally wear some knitwear. Because this is such a hefty jumper I felt I had to wear it with pointy pumps, which I don't wear that often.

Outfit - Lace










Location: Atlantis, the Palm

There are so many great locations in Dubai to take photos for my blog, Atlantis on the Palm is definitely one of them.
I'm wearing a lace skirt that I tried to make less girly by pairing it with a grey simple t-shirt, pistol ankle boots and my new Alexander Wang bag. I think my mission was accomplished.

The best gift I've ever gotten.

Leila Loves - DANNIJO









Ph. DANNIJO edited by me

Discovering new brands is something that happens to me almost every time I'm browsing the internet fashion world. Today I'm sharing a New York hand-made jewelry brand called DANNIJO, the necklaces they make are true statement pieces for everyones taste.
DANNIJO is definitely wishlist material.

Outfit - Burgundy











When the sun is on its way down you can catch the best light to take photographs.
Since I moved to Dubai I have been lacking a photographer for my blog (if anyone is interested, do let me know). These past weeks my loved ones from the Netherlands came to visit me and I took full advantage and shot some outfits while they were here.

I can't get tired of these burgundy coated jeans from Zara. The easiest way to wear them is with black, like I did here. If you like experimenting, check out my previous outfit post (here) where I matched the burgundy with a print.

Outfit: Burgundy coated jeans - Zara | Top - H&M | Sheer back jacket - H&M trend |

Wish I Wore - The Sweater




Ph. Net-a-porter

Something new on the blog, WIW (Wish I Wore). Something a lot of us do when we stroll the internet, we think of outfits that we wish we were wearing.
God knows what my closet would look like if I could buy everything I pictured myself wearing after seeing it in an online shop.
But until that time comes, I'll stick to creating virtual looks and getting my inspiration from them.
What I wish I wore today: The ultimate sweater from Alexander Wang.

Inspiration - Pastel hair





Ph. Vogue, F21

Who the hell would dye their hair tuqoise, pink or lilac? I would.
Well, not all of my hair but just a few strands. An ombre look with pastel colours, yes please!
Wish me luck.

Outfit - Snake and Fringe








Location - Jumeirah beach, Dubai

Taking the fringe boots on an evening out, paired up with a snakeskin print dress. It feels weird wearing boots in Dubai because although it is January it's still 28 degrees, which is not your typical boots weather.

New - Fringe







Location - Jumeirah beach, Dubai

There is something that a lot of bloggers have in common, we all love Isabel Marant.
The Isabel Marant fringe boots are one of the most desirable boots out there and these Zara fringe boots have some resemblance, don't you think?

This is what I wore to a day of shopping with my family who visited me from Holland.

Inspiration - Souk

















Ph. Me

This inspiration post comes from the Sharjah Souk that I visited last week. Sharjah is one of the seven Emirates and is very close to Dubai. The souk is full of little treasure shops, you come in for one thing and leave with ten other things.
The colours that the shops hold are beautiful don't you think?

Outfit - Green as Grass












I'm one of the few women who enjoys watching a football game, so when I heard that AC milan was in Dubai for a friendly match against Paris Saint Germain I had to be there. I was lost for an hour before I finally found the stadium but lets not talk about that.

What does one wear to a football game? Yes, green!

Outfit - Sunset








While I'm editing these photos I was thinking about how lucky I am that I can still go to the beach while most of you are probably sitting inside with the heater on.
I hope with my sunny posts I can make you feel like you are here with me.
