OUTFIT | Bootlove and Aztec

Pics | Private
Leggings | River Island (get them here)
Cardigan & Top | H&M
Boots | Oldies...
Necklace | Bijoux Brigitte
Bracelet | Noosa
Glasses | Ray Ban

True Bootlove.... I think we all have a pair of shoes which we just can't say goodbye to. A pair that we have walked on for miles, that may have seen quite some of the world and by which we can tell from it's look that they should've been thrown away years ago. But we just can't. Too many memories, too pretty and just too connected with that pair!

Well, meet my oldies! I think I bought these boots like 7 years ago (!). (I've dated a lot of guys shorter then this!) I know I bought them at a shop called Shoeline, a shop which looks kinda cheap and crappy but also has some good, ferm shoes in their line, which can last for years! We here have proof!

Now I don't actually wear these boots a lot anymore. There too faded to wear to my work and in the meanwhile, I've build up quite some other relationships with other pairs of shoes... But I'm considering giving these babies a new chance and maybe paint them?
But on to the outfit. I thought these oldies were perfect with this new bought Aztec printed leggings from River Island. I so love this print and I can feel that I'm gonna rock this baby a lot this spring and summer!

A simple outfit, for a simple sundayafternoon. Like it?

Have a good day babes!

PERSONAL | Blogiversary!

One year  ago I got, what I thought, crazy and started a blog. Though I had a period where my work needed my FULL attention, I'm still proud I did it! And after this period of
non-blogging I got up again, and continued!

I want to thank you, my readers for reading my posts and keeping in touch. Means a lot!

And now, I'm gonna enjoy my cake! :)
Love, P.

INSPIRATION | Whites and nudes

Pics via Tumblr and Pinterest

Whites. In summer I always love to wear whites and nudes. They make me feel like bright, shining and happy! Hopefully the weather in the Netherlands will get better soon, so I can start wearing these soft colors! For now, I'm stuck with pictures likes these, so I'm already inspired for all kinds of different white/nude summerlooks!

BEAUTY | Naildiary #1

The first naildiary. Again a beautypost! I've got more and more addicted to nailpolish the last weeks. Every few days I'm turning my nails in another little party. I've been sharing my nailart mostly on Twitter and in my Instagram dairy posts (like this one here), but because I got so many different naillooks to share with you, I decided to add a new kind of posts on my blog: the Naildiary!

From these polishes above I really like the green one the best. When I bought it, I wasn't sure about the color, but once Í put in on my nails it turned out great! Also the golden color is one of my favorites, aswell is the cracking line from essence. They by the way have all kinds of polishes and accessories to really pimp your nails! The blue polish from essence didn't meet my expectations though and I don't think I'll wear it again. I thought it was a soft, glammy pastel blue color, but one layer didn't cover my nails well enough, and after applying the second layer I kind off felt like I've had 'smurfed' my nails! Didn't like this result!

In this post I've used the following nailpolishes:
Sparkling: base - Essence Nude Glam "Iced strawberry cream" | top - NYC "Gramercy Glitz"
Cracking nails: base - Hema Longlasting nailpolish nr 142 | top - Essence "Crack me! black"
Golden: Catrice "Goldfinger"
Khaki: Catrice "Khaki Perry"
Minty: Catrice "Sold Out For Ever"
Blue: Essence "Sure Azure"  

Now I'm curious what you think of this kind of posts? Do you want to see more nailart on my blog?

OUTFIT | Willow look-a-like sneakers

Denim blouse & pink jeans | H&M
Sneaker | River Island, get them here
Tube scarf | Unknown
Bag | Primark
Glasses | Rayban

Willow look-a-like! We all adore the Willow sneakers from Isabel Marant. But I guess we also all think they're a bit expensive. I don't like fake, never bought it, but I loved these sneakers so much that, I must confess, I was considering buying a kinda fake pair. But I was shocked, these fake ones are still quite pricy! And if I'm spending a lot of money, I don't want to do it on a pair of fake shoes. So that was out of my mind again.

Then, some famous (online) shops were coming up with some look-a-like Willow sneakers! First there were the wedge sneakers from Mos Kopenhagen. Lovely but not quite was I was looking for, too much velcro if you ask me. Then I came around the wedge sneakers from Supertrash. But I found them too fringy. Two weeks ago a friend told me she saw similar sneakers at Hype Bazaar. But also these shoes weren't the perfect pair that could replace the real Willow ones from Isabel Marant. But then, my heart jumped litteraly when I was surfing around on River Island's online webshop. They had the best pair of look-a-like Willows!! So I ordered and I was way to happy when I could finnaly wear them this weekend.

It was weekend, so a casual outfit (again). Tell me, do you also love these sneakers? And like the outfit?

Enjoy your week babes!
Love P.

Peplum top: H&M Trend
Grey jeans | Vero Moda (old)
Boots | River Island
Bag | H&M
Bracelet | Noosa Amsterdam

Peplum from H&M Trend.  I love this top. It's easy, it's simple, it's fashion. Combined it with a recently re-discovered grey jeans and my fav jacket from this moment, the (faux) leather jacket I ordered at Welikefashion.com. A simple outfit I wore this Easter. I used those days off to chill with my boyfriend and to do some chores at home. Not really exciting, but necessary and relaxing.
How did you spent your easter?

BEAUTY | Cracking Nailpolish

Black cracking nailpolish | essence
Silver nailpolish basics | Hema

Nailart.  Spoiled myself with some nailart this weekend. I firstly tried this cracking nailpolish. It cost me only €1,59 at Kruidvat, a Dutch druggist store. It's quite simple:

1. First apply a basic color, I choose this silvercolored one. Let it dry.
2. Then apply the cracking topcoat. Pay attention and apply quickly! The nailpolish wil start to crack in a couple of seconds! When you apply some more then, it will not get any prettier.
3. Let it dry again, and your done!

Pretty easy he? And really love the result! Tell me, do you like it?

Love, P.

Inspiration - Getting ready for Ibiza

Getting ready for Ibiza!  With only 3 months to go, I'm surfing my ass off on the web, to find some perfect Ibiza-proof outfits. Here some of my collection so far. Ibiza asks for a divers wardrobe: of course you need to look hip and trendy, but also kind off casual for a shoppingday and really ready to party in the evening. And I think a gipsy look is a must on that island.

Which outfit do you like best?

Happy friday!

Love, P.
