Happy Saturday everyone!
I have another post for you. This time I wanted to show you what I wore to my first day of school and as an extra I will show you a little tip to transform your day look in to an evening look.
Now the first day of school is always a special day. Everybody came back from vacation or is beginning a new study in another city, don't know anybody etc. Of course you want to show the best version of you and it's always a good idea to dress nice, you know, for that confidence boost. No matter what we say to ourselves, the fist impression is very important. I even do a 'first impression assignment' with my trainees, because fact is: our judgments are based on our appearance. It's not ideal of course but this is what happens. For a first day I wouldn't go overboard with the accessories, make up or anything really. That would only 'scare' people away. It's not a fashionshow but you do want to show your personality and have a nice 'fresh' look, be approachable I would say. In the end we want to make friends, be ourselves and have a great time during college, high-school or whatever.
For my personal look I choose my favorite skirt. It's such a classic, I can combine it with basically anything and I feel good in it. That's very important I think, to feel comfortable and good in your outfit.
My booties and stockings dresses the look up, so for a day look I wanted to dress it down. One of the best ways to do that is by adding denim to your outfit. Denim is always associated with casual wear so works every time. For the color pallet I didn't really go wild. I kept it neutral, mostly because it's not summer anymore in Holland and we are right in that transitional weather. So neutral is always a good idea. I added a big bag to dress the outfit down even more and of course so I can carry my whole life with me to school, because that's a must when you're a girl hihi.
I also added a pink lipstick but you can't really see in the pictures. Just for a fresh look and a pop of color.
One last thing is that I always layer my outfit. You never know what the temperature is in classes. It always varies in my school. Sometimes it's freezing and sometimes it super hot. I also like to go outside during my breaks so always have a jacket, cardigan or maybe a sweater over your blouse etc. Options are endless!
That was really it for my outfit. It's really simple but still fun I think.
To sum up my tips for your first school day:
1. Don't go overboard with make up and or accessories
2. Try something you feel comfortable and good in
3. Use pop's of colors to spice your outfit up
4. Dress in layers
I hope you liked this outfit and my tips! Comment how you would dress for your first day in school and how, would love to read about it :)
My first day was great, I already made some friends hihi.
After school I went out for diner with my friends. Down below are some tips to dress up your look if you don't have time to go home before your evening out. It helped me so maybe you will find it helpful as well.
Have a lovely day everyone!
So if you don't have any time to go home after work or school and still want to look a little dressed for your evening out, here is what I did.
1. Add accessories. A nice necklace, earrings, rings, anything you want to spice up the look
2. Change your big day- bag for a nice clutch or little bag
3. Add lipstick or smoke your eyes up
4. Combine different materials in your day time outfit.
In my case I combined a chiffon top with denim, a leather skirt and black stockings. The trick is to remove all 'casual' items so you can have your evening look.
(I obviously took off my denim)
Hope it helped and have a great day!

Oh yes, it happened.... I went to freaking P A R I S! yay.
It was my first time and boy was it good.
Me and my friend went for one day and we had such a great time.
I fell in love with the great architecture, I love all those little details and the colors. It's so pretty, even the doors and little balconies are so cute. Such a great place to take a lot of pictures. Sometime I forgot to take pictures though, because we wanted to enjoy our time there. I was so impressed by the great views and the Eiffel Tower! Me and my friend definitely want to go back because we have a lot more places to visit, we also need to get macarons and crêpes the next time! We did do a lot for one day. We saw the Arc de Triomph, we went to Champs Élysées, the Eiffel Tower, the 'love' bridge and went on the subway and of course did a little shopping and dining.
We did have to search for nice places to eat. We want to plan everything next time, just so we don't have to search for places which takes up a lot of time. (Anybody tips on that?) I did like the fact that we walked around a lot. This definitely was a pre- trip, next time we want to spend the night there and do a lot more fun stuff!
I definitely fell in love with this place, I already love the language so to me it is a really happy place to be. It was nice to get out of he country, It felt like a mini vacation which was very needed. Now it is back to working life and need to get to work on this freaking thesis I have been neglecting.
I'm already tired of thinking about it, hihi.
Have a great evening darlings!

Hope everybody is doing well.
I've got a new camewa! Can you tell? I hope so haha.
Already have tons of ideas! Just need to figure out where to get time and somebody to help me.
I'm really excited and hopefully you will like it too.
Today is my cousin's birthday so I can't wait for the food. I think I am gointg to make a red velvet cake for the family, I can't go visit people without bringing something right? I also finished my little baby project yesterday.
I decided to make a dress and little bottoms for my baby cousin since I am taking sewing classes. It turned out really cute, will post a photo of it soon on my Instagram. I really like making clothes, just need to practice more and maybe I can make my own clothes very soon! That would be great and unique for sure.
Anyways, this look is from a few days ago, had diner with my sister and took some pictures in the city.
I can get enough of summer, even though I wish I could go to another country with nice white beaches and a nice ocean. Too bad I have to work and write my thesis. Maybe next year - fingers crossed-
Enjoy your Sunday everybody do something fun, it's summer!

Hi precious people,
How is your Monday so far? I just came back from work and wanted to share this midsummer look with you, which I wore yesterday! I love me an all white look, too bad I didn't find a great pair of white shoes yet to go with the all white look.
So many things happened in the past couple of weeks! From Gaza and MH17 to festivals and beach days. What a contrast don't you think? The least I could do is pray for all the innocent people and be there for my friend who lost a good friend of hers - may his soul rest in peace- If there is one thing I have learned from these incidents, it's that you really have to live your life tot the fullest, do things that make you happy, be really thankful for everything in your life and that we could be a little nicer to each other. We are "consuming" so much....so so much, we often forget about the things that really matter! Things that aren't materialistic. We're all busy with impressing other people and working for more money so we can buy more stuff, competing or fighting for stupid things. As much as I love fashion, my iPhone and all those fancy stuff, happiness can be found in other not materialistic, more lasting things like family, love, friendship, knowledge, health, traveling- seeing the world and so on. It's great that I can express my creative side through fashion, and if that could inspire only one person, that would make me feel really happy. Making people feel good about themselves and about this world is a beautiful thing in my opinion. That's why I am also working hard on my master degree, because I truly have the desire to help , inspire, create and make a little difference here and there. What are your dreams? And what do you think is important in this life? Days like this really make me think about this topic. Bottom line here is: enjoy your freaking life as long as it lasts!
That being said, I'm going to have a lovely diner with my family right now!
Have a great evening and remember to be kind - I feel like Ellen when I say this, but you get my message right? hihi

Here is a quick outfit of the day! It's getting a little warmer in Holland so I don't have to wear tights anymore YAY. I booked a trip to Paris so I'm going to visit France next month with my lovely friend, I'm so excited. I haven't had a good vaca in the last two years so any little trip will do for me! If you have any great (visiting) suggestions for Paris, please comment below! Today is the World Cup Final, it's so sad Holland didn't make it to the finals but at least we ended at third place. I'm going to watch the game today with family and of course eat a lot of food, which is the best part in my opinion hihi. I should work on my thesis proposal but I am just so lazy for school. It's summer and I really want to enjoy the sun and do fun stuff. Hopefully I can work on it this week, thank god my professor is on vacation so I don't have to deal with pressure e-mails!
Let's hope for a beautiful productive week! but until that time... I am all over food, soccer and fun with my friends.
Have a great day everybody!
