The pom pom craze continues and this time, they are all up on my necklace. How do you guys like this colorful piece? I am in love with the colorful embellishments and they add a fun and trendy touch to any outfit don't you think?
Tunics have been by go-to uniform this summer and I hope I am not boring you guys with it. I like to get them in al sorts of prints and colors available. Why do I keep reaching for them?
I think you have to agree with me that the major trend this season is the pom poms. I can't imagine this summer without wearing at least one item containing these cute and colorful embellishments . This trend is going strong and you can literally find pom poms everywhere. From sandals, espadrilles, beach bags, dresses to tunics and tops. Pom poms are ruling this season. I spotted these one-of-a-kind leather sandals from MABU byMaria BK on Net-A-Porter more than two months ago. I promised myself that if I didn't find another pair more beautiful I would just have to get them. What makes this particular pair so special?
Up until just recently transforming my naturally curly hair into a sleek hairstyle wasalways a challenge.Getting my hair ready is my least favorite part before walking out the door. Most of the time I opt for a ponytail or messy bun.It's quick easy and simple
Lately, I love wearing my hair down again. basically, because I got the chance to discover a newflat iron that I think is by far thé best flat iron I have ever used! I mean seriously the best. I am really excited about this product because for the first time in years I am not dreading straightening my hair in the morning and I can get profesional salon results minus the damage right at home! Curious? Keep on reading...
Back in Amsterdam, straight to Fashion Week. Life is good right? To be honest, We didn't even plan to attend this year, basically because Emiel and I have been really busy preparing for our move to Indonesia in October. Still, I could not resist swinging by after receiving an invitation by one of my favorite Dutch designers: Dennis Diem
I might look happy as a clam, but I am sad that our extensive trip to Indonesia is coming to its end. Time to go home yo! Of course, this will not be the end of posting summer outfits, heck summer just started!
Wearing summer whitesare myfavorite summer staples. Here I am, mixing different patterns of crochet to make it look more interesting. What I love about summer whites is that they look great, fresh and clean on every skin color and also makes you look more tanned..
Bali is one of the most popular destinations at the moment, Bali is all about stunning temples and amazing white beaches, but not only that. Bali's modern restaurants and bubbly nightlife while keeping their authenticity are absolutely extraordinary. While having explored the island, me and Emiel are already kind of stuck to our favorite places although we keep trying new ones every day.
We've hung out at the most popular spots like the amazing Potato Head beach club with an infinity pool, live DJs and finger licking good food in Seminyak, Find the best roasted pork at Ibu Oka in Ubud. Do you feel like dancing the night away in a great club with three floors and budget friendly shots and cocktails? Check out to the Skygarden Club in Kuta with an amazing view over Bali. It is very touristy but still a lot of fun.
For great eating, there are sunset venues like Ku De Ta, The W Retreat Hotelin Seminyak,or pick out your own fresh fish and dine on the sandy beach of Jimbaran beach. These spots are an absolute must do, but are getting more crowded by the day. I thought of sharing a few spots with you guys that are not only hip, cool and trendy but are also upcoming and less crowded by obnoxious tourists.
If you ever plan to visit Bali, just make sure to stop by one of these spots and let me know what you think. I am curious to hear your thoughts.
Colorful stripes have made a comeback for spring/summer 2016. My take on this cheerful trend is this striped number I scored while exploring Kei Kecil island. Cool fashion items are extremely hard to find there, basically, because the islands are so remote. I felt like I won the lotto when I ran into this piece while exploring the local and only "mall" in the central city of Langur. I decided to wear it when we celebrated the Dutch king's birthday in Bali a few weeks later.
I know this post is really overdue because this was already a month and a half ago, but still I wanted to show you guys this outfit. Kings day is a huge celebration in The Netherlands, so to be able to celebrate it here in Bali was great! On this particular day, all sorts of Dutch expats showed up, happily running around wearing Hollands national color orange. I went "multi-colored" basically because I couldn't find anything suitable in the color orange or even peach and received quite a few nice compliments about my stripey outfit.
We ate Dutch poffertjes and bitterballen, enjoyed great tunes by a local Dutch DJ and strolled through the shopping and food stands. Thanks to our good friend Ineke who had organized the whole event we had a brilliant time.
