Fatal Floral

Blouse: Sans Souci via TK Maxx
Sweater: H&M
Pants: Matalan
Heels: wholesale dress

So, tonnes of rain again for Holland today. Hence the slightly dark and crappy photos. Oh well, not that fanatically happy about this outfit anyway. Sometimes things just don't turn out quite how you expected them too. I find these pants really hard to combine with, but as I did actually only buy them as a buy one get one free extra, it's not that big a deal if I hardly ever wear them. As theyre kindof capri pants (which is not really my thing) they'll probably come in handy over summer. They'd probably look good with classic pumps though. We'll see.

Statement Sneakers

Top: H&M
Shirt: New Look
Jeans: Primark
Shoes: Vans via eBay
Sweater: Christmas present from Mum.

Another simple outfit worn for work. I'm not a huge fan of denim on denim but just like last outfit post, I do find myself wearing things that I usually wouldn't more and more recently. I have to say though, I don't usually count black skinny jeans as denim because it's basically the staple of my wardrobe which I can wear with anything, especially for work.

My sweater also has a really cool open pattern detail to the back, only because I wore black under as well I couldn't get it on camera very well. I do love this sweater loads though so I'm sure you'll be seeing it again in all its wonder. And, the only really interesting part of my outfit: my Vans. Along with the leather wingtips that I wear in this post, these are vans that I saw and immediately had to have, so I searched and searched until I found them in my size on eBay and snagged them. I think they look best with a simple outfit, because I often have a hard time finding something perfect to wear with them. But they are so cool. Even though I've only worn them a handful of times, I definitely don't (and won't) regret buying them! I love having unusual shoes of a well known and common brand, like my pink purple and blue Adidas which are another part of my staple wardrobe for everyday use.

New Shoesssss!


I'm not really one to walk around in leggings (as in instead of pants) but I really think these are gonna look awesome with leggings for summer. Can't wait for them to arrive to I can try a bunch of different combos. I have too many leggings that I've worn once or never. Well, we'll see.

It feels like Spring


Okay so, even though spring isn't really here yet (although no sign of snow today and even a peep of sun now and again, thank god!) I am still in the mood for it. Visualised by this collage I made because I literally have nothing better to do. I have to say I haven't really gotten a good feeling for spring yet what with the crappy weather, so I couldn't say what kindof of colours I expect to love this spring/summer. But purple and yellow are as always great favourites.

Post Punk

Top: Vintage
Shirt: New Look
Jeans: Primark
Wedges: Nelly.com
Coat: Vintage via my mum.

I've never really been one for vintage wear. To be completely honest I often find it ill fitting and sometimes just really ugly. That being said, there have been vintage things I've seen that I have loved, and also vintage style new clothing that I have wanted and/or bought. Having two vintage items on in one outfit would not be something I imagine would happen often with me but here you go, I love this outfit, mostly because I love this coat. It's officially my mums, and often when I wear it she says she should never have given it to me. But tough titties mum!

Other than that this is (and yes I will say it again) another pretty boring outfit that was more for function than anything else. It's still really cold here, and it was snowing again today. Yay fucking April! As I get older I do realise everyday that my outfits depend more than ever on the weather. When I was a teenager I looking fabulous was always more important than being cold. Nowadays I’d rather wear twenty layers than look good in a skirt and freeze to death. Either way, I hope it’ll start getting warmer in Holland soon. Cause snow in April is really not my idea of spring!

Upon Us All A Little Rain Must Fall

Top: Stolen (and customized) from boyfriend
Shirt: Stolen from boyfriend via H&M
Jeans: wholesale-dress.net
Shoes: Nelly.com

We're getting pretty far with decorating our new appartment, and it's taking up alot of my time and energy. Hence the need for comfy and simple outfits. Either way I'm pretty happy with these photos. Unfortunately we just hung a shitload of DVDs on this wall which means I really will have to find something else, or start taking them outside again. I think unless I want to be blown away that might take a while yet. It actually snowed again today, can't believe it's almost April. I actually was really tempted to buy a funky pair of harem style pants today but I couldn't bring myself to spend what little money I currently have on something I can't even go outside in yet. Ofcourse it was probably the right idea either way cause I really want to get those Pony high tops.

Right, well I better get back to painting. Housewarming party tomorrow!
