 cardigan - H&M divided (sale), dress - H&M divided (sale), sneakers - Converse All Stars

This is what I wore last Saturday. The day before my great AFW adventure was a day full of family festivities. My boyfriends brother and his girlfriend are leaving for Australia next week and plan not to come back for a year! Saturday afternoon we had a family lunch and at night they threw a farewell party. A long but fun day. And it's such an unreal idea that we won't see eachother for at least a year... But I respect the big step they're taking, how cool of an adventure that is!

My own adventure is getting closer and closer... My boyfriend is leaving in 6 weeks now and I'm a bit sad about it. We made this choice together, and I know it's important for him to travel by himself for a while, but I know that I'm gonna miss him a lot! But we're going to travel together for more than 3 months after that, so I may not complain. It's going to be awesome!

What's your biggest adventure?
Have a nice Thursday! ♥

Outfit: Red nosed

denim shirt - H&M divided, top - H&M divided, belt - H&M, high waist jeans - H&M &denim, beanie - a gift, sneakers - Converse All Stars 

A little early maybe, but this shirt with a heartshaped red nosed tiger is definitely on the list to bring with me to South-America.  It's just one of my favourite tee's. Matchy matchy with my leopard belt and my favourite high waist jeans today. While, not today, a few days ago, when my backyard was still a winter wonderland. Now it's just rainy and grey. Still thankful tho, I've had enough of the snow.

Enjoy your day! ♥

Amsterdam Fashion Week: Marga Weimans

Me: skirt - H&M trend, peplum - H&M trend, boots - H&M trend, ring - H&M, necklace - Otazu

Sunday night I went to a show at the Amsterdam Fashion Week. Debbie from Six Feet From The Edge and Samsung teamed up and provided 2x2 tickets for the Marga Weimans show. I joined and turned out to be one of the lucky few!  I planned to go with my friend Daisy, but she had to cancel right before we had to leave. Panic! After last minute calls to more friends who all could not make it I was close to tears. All dressed up, looking forward to a great night and now nowhere to go? Boohoohoo..!
I decided to go alone. I took the 90 minute journey by train, metro and tram to the Westergasfabriek and sat  there, all by myself. And I loved it! The atmosphere, the show, the people... A whole new experience! 
I made the pictures with my Samsung Galaxy S ll phone - no luxurious camera or big lenses for me unfortunatly - so mea culpa for the notsogood quality. I've tried to give an impression of the show and the evening and then there's my own outfit ofcourse, photos taken by myself (holla at the timer) in my own familiar garden. 
Hope you like it. I sure did! ♥

Thanks again, Debbie
(and don't forget to check out her lovely blog)

Life: Diary 03

A peek into my life, last week through instagram. And this is what you're looking at: 

♥ view from my boyfriends place //
snowcat. I did not make it, but ain't this the coolest thing you've ever seen?! // yummie Sunday breakfast: egg with avocado, a wholemeal bread and some 3 year old cheese! // Daisy and I at the Internation Film Festival Rotterdam. We went to see Spring Breakers, absurd! IFFR is one of my favorite festivals during winter // my view on my way home after a long workday // my grandma passed away 5 years ago last week. she was the light of my life. lived just around the corner and after my parents got divorced at age 13 she turned out to be my safe haven. even lived with her for a few months when I was 16. it still makes me sad that she's not around anymore. I'm not religious, but I'm sure she's outthere somewhere, dancing with my grandpa. still miss her every day! ♥

Inspiration: Sunday morning

Ph: from all over the internet... 

I love to start my free Sunday by staying in bed, reading blogs and magazines. Here are some wonderful pics that really inspire me, all in black & white.
I've a great night in prospect today. I'll be present at a show at the AFW for the first time in my life! But more about that later.... (woohaaa!!)

Have a lovely Sunday! ♥

Outfit: Mousy

skirt - H&M trend, cardigan - H&M divided, tee - H&M divided, sneakers - New Balance

I think this H&M trend skirt is the favourite thing in my closet right now. I love that the back is so much longer than the front. I tried to create the same effect with the shirt. Today I combine it with a simple grey tee, my new fluffy cardigan (SALE! yay!) and -again- my NB sneakers. Can't wait for the thaw, so I dare to wear something other than sneakers again. 

What do you think about my outfit? 
Enjoy your Saturday! ♥

Outfit: Outside

Coat - H&M trend, bag - H&M, scarf - H&M trend, sneakers - New Balance

My boyfriend took this picture in Voorburg, just before we got vaccinated. It turned out to be not so bad, but the worst is yet to come. Next week we'll get the Yellow Fever injection, and the doc said there's a big chance of 5 to 10 days of illness and high fever after that.. Brr!

Outfit: The sun and the snow

blazer - H&M trend, blouse - H&M trend, short - H&M divided, sneakers - New Balance, sunglasses - H&M

With the sun reflecting on the snow it suddenly feels like spring. But the sunbeams aren't warm enough to melt the snow... Just keep on shining.  Please?

Outfit: Conquer the cold

jacket - H&M, jeans - H&M &denim, top - Zara, blouse - H&M trend, sneakers - New Balance, nailpolish - Carice

It just keeps freezing and keeps snowing. The layer of snow is getting thicker and thicker and just don't seem to get away. Was it me that told you the snow was so wonderful? I hate it by now! After spending most of the weekend inside (accept for Desiree's birthday party. A winter BBQ!) I had to work again by Monday. I took out this very old, but extremely warm lammy coat to conquer the cold. I love how it combines with the light jeans and my NB sneakers (which keep my from slipping). The sneakers seem to be glued to my feet. I doubted when I bought them last summer, but by now I think it's my best purchase EVER! 
Today I have to slide through the snow to Voorburg, we're getting our first vaccinations for South-America. And I don't like syringes at all! I'm scared as f*ck... But well, it's just another step closer to my great adventure!

How are you gonna spent your Tuesday?
