Outfit: Gold to me

dress - H&M divided, shoes - Bershka, skarf - H&M trend, ribbed tights - Primark

Since I no longer buy clothes (or at least try to not buy clothes) for the next months - like you can read here - I have to be creative with the item I've got in my closet. This dress you have seen a lot - here, here and here - but never in this combination. It's such an easy dress, it fits well, and it can go with almost everything. I love the black and the blue together. And the tights are ribbed, slightly different than normal tights, but it gives the outfit just that little extra detail it needs.

Life: Big plans!

I'm talking about it all day every day, but yesterday I realized I haven't said anything about it on the blog yet! My boyfriend and I have this big plan: We are going away for a long time. He's leaving in March for South-America and I'm going after him as soon as May starts (after missing him for 2 months, boohoo!). The new job is a pregnancy replacement and my contract expires after 6 months. Perfect timing for a trip like this! I'll travel across South-America for 4 months. Learn to speak Spanish in Buenos Aires, visiting Bolivia's salt plains and Peru's Machu Picchu, volunteering in Colombia and we'll finish in Panama and fly back to Holland from there. I'm EXTREMELY excited about it. Haven't done anything like this ever before and sometimes I think I can't do it. But I have to. And I want to. I'm terrified, and I can't wait at the same time. 

But first, for now, no more shopping. No more clothes, shoes or bags. No more dinners. No more trips. I have to save every dime I earn! So the 'New In' section will be empty for a long time from now. But it's for a good cause: An enormous never-to-forget experience with my greatest love of all, I'm sure it will be the time of my life!

Outfit: Texture

shirt - Zara, skirt - Shana, shoes - Sacha, rings - Forever 21

OMG, I'm so tired! All the new impressions at the new job, getting up early everyday, a busy weekend and a upcoming flu (again!).  I bought this skirt in Spain last september in a very cheap shop called Shana. I like the texture.

Outfit/hair: Cut it short!

dress - Zara, tights - H&M, flats - H&M, bag - Mango, earrings - H&M

About a week ago I went to the hairdresser. I just wanted her to cut off the dead ends, but there was no saving of my (semi) long locks. I was disappointed at first, but I'm kind happy with this bob by now.  What are your thoughts about it? 

Last saturday my boyfriends mum turned 60, so we were out celebrating with the whole family. I wore this LBD with a kind of peplum on the sides and combined it with golden tights. I think there's no better outfit for a party than the famous little black dress. And - beside a classic one - I love one with some special details of this season. Like the peplum on this one!

Outfit: Dark Days

denim blouse - H&M divided, jeans - H&M divided, sneakers - New Balance, coat - H&M trend

It's getting harder and harder to take outfit pictures now the days are getting shorter and shorter. It's still dark when I leave in the morning. When I come home at the end of the day, the sun's already down. Besides that, it's so cold I barely can show my outfit outside without a coat. Blugh, I miss those light and sunny summer days! 

How do you get through these dark days?

Outfit: Black and blue

pants - H&M divided, top - H&M divided, shoes - Bershka, earrings - Forever 21

I hardly wear baggy pants, but this one I could not resist. Perfect pants for an easy sunday. And I'm finally wearing my new Bershka shoes. I love how the blue breaks the black whole! The black shirt has shoulder pads with sequins on it. Sequins make every outfit, this top makes me wonder why I've so little sequins in my closet... It's a great combo with the baggy pants, I think! 

This morning the new work week started. The transfer period is over, I'm starting the real deal today! Exciting, but I'm looking forward to it! What are you up to?

Outfit: Lazy days

top - Zara, cotton dress - H&M divided, sneakers - New Balance, hat - H&M

Last week I started my new job, and besides the excitement and the challenge that it brings it means that I'm working regular working hours nowadays. So no more nightshifts, no more sleeping at work and - most important - free weekends. Every friday I'll sincerely say: TGIF! 
So this is what I wore last saturday: a fishnet top (with some glitter to spice up the day), a cotton stretchdress and my favourite sneakers. A relaxed and lazy saturday afternoon... Doing nothing at all. 

How was your weekend?

Outfit: My heart is a flower

vest - H&M divided, dress - H&M trend, boots - Zara, belt - River Island 

This dress is so old, it still has that pink H&M label. You  know, the one where the TREND collection owes her nickname 'pink label collection' to. I bought it in New York like forever ago. Ever since I forget about it, find it back in my closet, wear it a few times, forget about it, and find it back again. But even when I haven't seen or worn it for months, the flowers still bloom. And that's what makes it yet another timeless dress.

What do you think about the dress? And do you love the TREND collection just as much as I do?
Enjoy your saturday!

Outfit: Anniversary

skirt - H&M trend, top - Zara, shoes - H&M , ring - I am

Last wednessday my boyfriend and I celebrated our  1 year anniversary. 
We've been through a lot last year, but I'm so glad that he's still mine. Never been in love more, and besides that, I never felt more save, more sexy and more loved than with him. I love him, truly and deeply, and I sincerely hope we will last forever! ♥

Wearing this gorgeous TREND skirt, love the wrapped front and longer back. I've seen it in stores in town, loved it, couldn't effort it, than bought it in Spain. It's a timeless purchase, black is forever! My boyfriend totally digs this style. So this one's in your honor, handsome!

Outfit: Málaga me!

dress - H&M, vest - Zara, shoes - H&M, sunglasses - H&M

Our last full day in Málaga - thursday - is a sunny one. Even took off my woolen vest for the pictures without freezing! Now we're back home, we look back on a very nice holiday together. ♥ Even though I brought my bikini, but ended up in cold and rain and despite they dished me a bad tuna and I had to go to the hospital. We gently laugh about all that now! ;) 
I love this white Zara vest, but I can't find the items to combine it with in a winter-ish way. If you have any ideas, let me know!

Outfit: Love of my life

dress - H&M trend, vest - H&M divided, shoes - H&M

You've seen this dress on me lot's of times before. High summer with sandals, spring-ish with boots, combined with diffirent scarfs and this time with a this holiday famous vest. It's not only the love of my fashion life, it's my boyfriends favourite dress on me too. So after a day of rain and rain in Malaga, this dress and a few unexpected sunbeams cheer us up.

New in: Blue Suede shoes

shoes - Bershka 

One of the things I love about shopping in Spain is the reduced prices at Zara, Bershka, Pull and Bear and the rest of the IG family. And on top of that these babies were on sale. Studded shoes were just what was missing in my wardrobe. And I love the colour. Can't wait to wear them!  

What do you think about my blue suede shoes? And what is your last purchase?

Outfit: Granada's Grace

vest - H&M divided, blouse - H&M trend, trousers - Mango, flats - H&M

This is what I was wearing while visiting La Alhambra, Andalusia's great pride. An amazing place, so much history. All the Moorish influences you find at this place are really impressive, and when you make it up the steep stairs you will be rewarded with this great view. Next picture diary I'll make you see more of that! 
For now, these black, linen, high waist trousers I got myself at Mango in Sevilla. I decided to step out my stylezone and try something new. With the limited items I brought this holiday, this is what I made of it. 
I am wondering about the outfits I will make with this pants coming winter... Will it turn out to be a good buy outside the box, or not?

Outfit: This way

dress - H&M trend, shoes - H&M, vest - H&M divided

While the rain keeps on falling and the weatherforcast keeps getting worse, our disappointment slowly turns into acception. We're here, so we will make the best of it! The night we arrive at Granada, we put on our warmest clothes and have dinner on the restaurant terrace. Underneath an huge umbrella and near a heat lamp. And we're not the only ones! This holiday will turn out to be fine anyway, this way.
The first day we are exploring the city. It's beautiful! And between the rain showers the sun is shining. I pigheaded wear this summer dress (I brought to many dresses with me not to wear them), with this big warm vest. I regret it I did not bring a winter coat, but the vests are doing their job just fine.

Life: Córdoba

A photo diary of our - cold and rainy, but lovely for sure! - Córdoba days!

On the bridge, La Mezquita behind me // poor palmtrees in the rain // rose petals on the Mezquita stairs // I love street art // tapas, yum! // Finding this litter of kittens (and a lot of toys and food) made my day! Miss my own kitties!// La Mezquita //  a little waterfall in the park. And our view the whole day... ;) // A cathedral inside of the mosque... So much for culture!

Outfit: I cover the waterfront

top - Zara, jeans - H&M &denim, vest - H&M divided, sneakers - New Balance, belt - Mango, cap - H&M mens dept

Our last day in Córdoba is a wet one. Since I wasn't completely up for this weather I had to bought myself some other-than-summer-clothing. This high waist jeans is travelling with me, as always, it's my absolute favourite jeans. But the top I bought at Zara in Spain. You can never have enough black tops, I figured. And I love the low back. 
The cap is a item my boyfriend loves on me. And with all the rain it makes it a real life (or hair) saver!
Hoping for some sunny days in Granada!

Outfit: Córdoba's cold

dress - H&M trend, socks - H&M, flats - H&M

Although the weatherforcast predicted nice weather today, it turns out to be insanely cold in Córdoba! I'm wearing flipflops and after a frosty hour hoping for the sun to come out, I ran to H&M for some socks and cheap ass shoes to keep me warm. Socks in flats & a dress, not so charming... But I'm desperate! The sneaky local people seem to understand more of this crazy Spanish weather: They are all dressed in coats and boots, and look at me like I'm the strange one going out with bare legs. It's my holiday, forgodssake! And this should be one of the good days! Like 22*C and sunny! 
As soon as we are back at the hostel I put on some tights and my thickest skarf. Wish I had brought my winter coat! Blugh, this weather makes me grumpy!

Life: Sevilla

great start of the holiday: amazing view from the airplane // palmtrees and the Puente de Triana create the holiday feeling // me at the Cathedral, shelter for the rain  // Puente de Triana // he & I ♥ // view from the Cathedral tower // Salut! // Metropol Parasol. My boyfriends brother is an architect and told us to really visit this building. Unfortunately it was closed, so we couldn't get to the top of it // Beautiful, beau-ti-ful Plaza de España! (and finally sunshine!)

Outfit: Sevilla's sun

tee - H&M divided, skirt - H&M trend, bag - local market in Spain, flipflips - Haviana's

Our prayers are heard: Sevilla's third day is one with a lot of warmth and sunshine! Time for flipflops! Sun makes everything seem so much brighter!

Outfit: Cats and dogs

dress - H&M trend, vest - H&M divided, shoes - H&M

This is what I wore the second day in Sevilla. First day it was raining cats and dogs, so after visiting the Cathedral, we decided to go back to the hostel and watch a movie....  I'm wearing this Trend dress I really love. Unfortunately I can't show off the amazing cut out back, because it's still too chilly and I have to wear this vest all day long. But it's a nice combination, don't you think?
