FASHION / playing in playsuits

playsuit & blazer - h&m | shoes - vagabond

Like I promised, here is proper outfit post! The items I'm wearing are probably a few of the oldest clothing pieces that I own. I still remember buying this playsuit when I was 13/14 years old and got a certain amount of shopping money each month. Since it wasn't that much money I almost got all my clothing at the H&M at the kids department (yes, sometimes they do have decent clothing there, and most of the time it's cheaper than when you buy it at the ladies department!). Luckily I was, and still am, a small girl so the big kids sizes fit me like a ladies S. Anyways, this playsuit is still one of my favs, although I don't wear it that much. But that's simply because it takes so much time to go to the toilet when you wear these things haha. 

Happy Friday everyone!

FASHION / nineteen years on this planet

top - h&m | dress - oasap | shoes - vagabond

About my life. I'm back! Sunday around noon I came back from an amazing week full of snowboarding and partying. I can't believe it's already over and that I'll have to wait a whole year to go to Austria again. But, I'm not complaining. I'm very grateful that I have the opportunity (read money) to go snowboarding every year. It is a real privilege and one week is definitely better than none! Besides the fact that I returned to the cold and ugly Netherlands on Sunday, it was also my 19th birthday. Happy, belated, birthday to me haha. Because of the fact that I just got home from my holiday and was very tired I didn't really celebrated it that day. However, I did have some delicious cake and my boyfriend as lovely company. Maybe I will throw a little party, or go to a party with good friends later this month

About this outfit. Although spring is just around the corner, the weather in The Netherlands feels like autumn. It's cold, rainy and it feels like the wind never stops blowing me of my feet. All these factors aren't particular convenient when taking outfit pictures, so therefore here as just some quick snapshots taken in my backyard. After wearing snowboard pants and big sweatshirts for a week I feel the extreme urge to wear dresses. However, since I'm still pretty tired and have to catch up a lot of schoolwork, I do want to feel as comfortable as possible. The result is this comfortable, yet classy outfit. ( I feel like I say this a lot, maybe I should start calling my style comfortable yet classy haha?)

And that's it for now. Hopefully the weather will get better soon so I can provide you with some quality outfit posts!

PHOTOGRAPHY / kisses from Austria!

Hi there people! Just as I promised, here are some snapshots of the beautiful mountains of Austria. I'm so glad to be on my snowboard again and I'm enjoying these days to the fullest. Unfortunately we've only had one sunny day yet, but that doesn't hold us back. Besides snowboarding I've also done a lot of drinking (gotta love jagermeister), eating and sleeping haha. As much as I love wintersport, it isn't exactly relaxing and I'll probably be more tired at the end of this holiday than I was at the beginning. Anyways, this is just a quick update to let you know I'm still alive. Next week I'll be home again and I will try to take some outfit shots as soon as possible!

Are any of you (going) on wintersport?

FASHION / comfortable yet feminine

blouse - vintage | dress - cos | bag - oasap | shoes - vagabond

About my life. Ohmyyyygooood my wintersport holiday is almost here! I'm leaving tomorrow night and if everything goes as planned, I'll be on my snowboard Saturday morning. But, before I'm heading for a 1-week-long party, I'll have a small one tonight as well. Last December one of my friends turned 18 and after a lot of misplannend dates, we're now finally taking her to a cocktailbar. I don't know about you, but I love cocktails. If they weren't so expensive I would probably be drinking them every weekend haha.

About the outfit. This is probably one of the most comfortable, yet feminine, outfits I can make with all the clothing in my closet. It's perfect for a long day at school or a long bus ride (like the overnight bus ride I'm taking to Austria tomorrow). Anyways, I got some compliments on this dress and it inspired me to mix and match with it some more. I'm already starting to feel my blogger dip wander! Which reminds me; thank you all for the comforting comments on my last post! You guys are still the reason why I love blogging so much!

The coming week I'll be in a hotel and I will try to update the blog with some gorgeous photographs of the mountains while I'm there. But, you never know what the Wifi is like.. So if you want to stay up to date, follow my instagram!

FASHION / speaking of valentines day

sweater & dress (worn as skirt) - oasap | bag - vintage | shoes - vagabond

Guys, I'm sorry that it has been a bit quiet on the blog lately. I don't know what it is, but I'm experiencing a blogger block, blogger dip or whatever you'd like to call it. Due to school and house hunting I'm tired and stressed out a lot of the time. And not only is it hard to find time to take pictures, my level of inspiration has also sinked to a low level. Maybe I'm just in need of a new fashion season (spring hello come here asap!!) and lots of new clothes haha. Luckily , next week I'll have a week off and I'll be releasing all my stress in Austria on my snowboard. Oooh I really cannot wait! Oh and my birthday is coming up as well, the first of March I'll be turning 19 already. Gosh time flies by so fast. Anyways, hopefully my mind is all cleared up and full of inspiration after my trip so I can focus some more on blogging again! 

About this outfit. This is an old outfit which I'd never posted because I don't like it th├ít much. However it is kind of valentinish so in the  name of love I thought I'd post it anyway. 

And speaking of valentines day and love, how was your valentinesday?

INSPIRATION / frayed jeans for spring

source photographs - various tumblres | jeans 1jeans 2 & jeans 3

Today I want to show you guys some inspiration on a current, or upcoming, trend which I really like; frayed jeans! If you've read some magazines or blogs lately, you've probably noticed the flared jeans trend, which I personally love on others but wouldn't wear myself that quickly. However, the frayed jeans trend is something I would wear myself, and therefore I thought it would be nice to share some gorgeous versions of this trend with you! Besides the fact that the frayed ends make the jeans look more nonchalant and spring/summerish, they're also easy to make as a DIY. Just take an old pair of jeans and find a quick and easy DIY on Pinterest or any other website/blog. But, if you're like me and don't have any old jeans laying around in your closet (or you're just too lazy to do a DIY), you can of course buy a nice pair as well. Above you can see my 3 favourite ones. Maybe I'll order one of these as soon as I got a nice pair of heels to combine them with haha! 

What do you think about the frayed jeans trend?
