Double denim and clearly in the mood for monochromatic blue. I don't know if you can tell but the sweater i'm am wearing is also blue, navy blue in fact but for some reason it came out looking really dark in the pictures. I love wearing this Acne sweater during the Spring, it has a lot of padding and so it keeps me really warm, so much so, I don't have to wear a coat or jacket. Whenever I am shooting inside, our doggies always love to get involved, usually I shoo them away but this time I let them in on it.

SOMETIMES pretty can be boring and all we really want to look at is some stylish girls in leather and eyeliner. Check out five of our favourite edgy style blogs right now - who said fashion has to be girly?
No, no, no. No animal prints for this missy. I may be wild from the inside, but showing some wildness on the outside always seemed too much for me. But messing with the good girl image can prove valuable lessons. So I learned when I got the chance to borrow clothes for this shoot from our fashion cabinet. I challenged myself to get out of my sweater comfort zone and this is the result. I think I look pretty wow, with a little r in the middle, don’t you think? Am curious if you dare to W(r)OW yourself this season. Love, Jonna (Marie Claire’s writer) If you want to read about a valuable life lesson I learned from my friend, click here > Wanna know what I’m wearing?

Remember those grey days I mentioned? Yep this was one of them! When meeting up with a friend, i'm always conflicted between wanting to dress pretty and needing to remain comfy, as I know i'm going to be sat down for while, as once we get chatting, that's it, the world doesn't exist for the next three hours. So, this time I settled with simple and relatively comfy wardrobe staples, which seemed to reflect well on the grey day that it was. But thankfully I had my yellow snake print clutch/bag from Warehouse to brighten up my day. There is nothing wrong with adding a touch of colour.

Be honest, how cool would it be to drink champagne with your favourite Brit bloggers and dance into the London night in an incredible new pair of shoes? This is your chance.
Now that spring has well and truly sprung, we've been discussing florals together at CofD lately, and how we're not so sure about it. There are two ways it can go: either the beautifully sculpted and feminine Dior way, or the Grandma's curtains kind of way. Then it hit us: how could we wear florals, without wearing florals?! The answer, beautiful people, is simple - layer vibrant colours with a subtle graphical print and the human eye does the rest for you. We don't know who this girl is but my god, she's got it right.
People are busy & I think Dutch people are seriously some work aholics. I definitely think that's a good thing, but.. Sometimes I catch myself that I don't enjoy my 'day offs'. So since I'm busier with my jobs as online trading manager and freelancer I got kind of a planning for my day offs. It sounds kind of weird maybe, but I just need it to relax on those days.. Curious how my day off looks like? 1. AN EARLY WAKE-UP CALL I love to sleep, but since my new working days start at 9am I also wake up quite early. It feels good to have more time for the daily routine. 2. ENJOY BREAKFAST / When I have some good food for breakfast it feels like a super fresh start of the day! I love to eat some croissants, some warm 'just-out-of-the-oven' baguettes, some fresh juice and a delicious cup of coffee. Nothing better than that! I really need to pay more attention on it.. What about you? 3. THE DAILY MAKE-UP ROUTINE, BUT THEN A LITTLE BETTER During my day offs I think I look better than during my days at work haha. I love to spend some more time in the bathroom when I got the time for it. I like to look for some make-up inspiration on pinterest and try some new looks. Maybe it's an idea to make some 'how I do my make-up' videos? 4. SOME 'FRUSTRATING' GROCERY SHOPPING I mostly listen to some deephouse music while going to the supermarket. It makes grocery shopping a lot more fun, believe me! In the supermarket I seriously have no patience, I just don't like all the slowly walking people over there.. Hello?! I got some long legs, I need to run through the store haha. Luckily there are 'self scanners' over here (don't know how to call them in English?), so within 20 minutes I'm back home ;) 5. NOW IT'S TIME FOR BLOGGING Taking photo's of what I want to blog about, upload them on the laptop, edit them and write a blogpost about it. Nothing special, just how probably all of you bloggers do it. Well, I do it with some loud music through my speakers, that's it ;) After the new blogpost it's time to answer some mails, what takes a while.. But it feels quite good when it's all done. 6. WORKOUT - BELLY, BUTT & LEGTIME! On my day offs I mostly go to the gym. I like bodypump, but I also do some normal workouts myself. The legs, the butt and the belly are the most important for me. I want to get them a little tighter and I'm planning to tell you some more about my process and how I work out. Hopefully you're gonna like it! 7. TIME FOR DINER, MADE BY LE BOYFRIEND My boyfriend is definitely the best cook ever! As you might now his mom is Indonesian (so he's an half one), what means: the best Indonesian food a couple of days a week. And actually he also cooks a lot of healthy food lately, which is just as tasty. 8. WATCHING SERIES & GETTING MY NAILS DONE My boyfriend injected me with the series-virus, I love to watch them! Most of the time we watch crime series while enjoying some chocolate or healthy nuts. Our favorite series of the moment are definitely Hannibal and True Detective. You should watch them! Some other ones I really like: Homeland, Pretty Little Liars (but hey, talk to you in 5 years, when we finally found out who 'A' is. It's getting quite annoying, right?) and Dexter. Btw, during watching series it's the best time to polish & paint your nails! I hate it, but I love nail polish, so I guess I just have to deal with it? Actually I'm looking for a good working UV-lamp to get myself some gel nails, so if you have some tips, please share them with me :) 9. ZZZ.. BEDTIME / Time to sleep. Set the alarm for a new working day and that's it!
photo credit | personal LAST FRIDAY I travelled to and from Amsterdam in less then 24 hours - I think that's a record? Either way I'm damn proud of myself for still being able to mentally function without sleep for nearly two days. As you may have already seen on the other CofD blogs, there are some changes coming to the site. Good changes! Over the past few days I've been working like a crazy woman behind my desk in preparation for the new plans I have for le blog (note the slight aesthetic changes ey ey) so if things get a little quiet on my end you'll know why. That being said, I'd love to know a little bit about what you'd like to see from me. Leave any ideas (or questions) in the comments below! PS. My Wardrobe is running an insane offer which gives you a free flight ticket to one of ten destinations (including good old Amsterdam) whenever you spend £100 or more online. Um..hell yes? Terms and conditions are here. Looks like I'll be back sooner rather than later then.. Follow me on: Bloglovin | Facebook | Tumblr | Twitter | Instagram | Pinterest | Lookbook | Stylight | Shop
Not your usual quotes from Chanel and Karl, we've found some very true quotes from timeless fashion icons. Ultra PIN-able! ;-)
Afgelopen zondag werd ik wakker met nu al het beste modenieuws van 2014: Alexander Wang is de nieuwe gast designer voor H&M. De droom van bijna iedere fashionista. Heel Twitter en Instagram stond er dan ook vol van. Zoals je kunt zien ben ik al lange tijd pro Team Wang. Dit shirt heb ik vorig jaar gekocht bij Fashaves. Anywho, toen mijn enthousiasme en de daarbijbehorende adrenaline (en dat op zondagochtend!) wat afzakte werd ik dan ook overvallen door lichte paniek. Want hoe ga ik ooit aan zo’n item komen als de hele wereld dat ook wil?! Daarom hierbij vijf tips! FIVE WAYS TO GET YOUR HANDS ON AN ALEXANDER WANG x H&M ITEM 1. Go to H&M in a city where fashion isn’t that big of a deal Ga naar een stad waar mode niet echt leeft. Een voorbeeld hiervan is mijn stad Groningen. Hier hing twee dagen na de release van Isabel Marant pour H&M de halve winkel nog vol. Maar wees voorbereid, ik lig voor de deur in Groningen! Als het hier tenminste wordt verkocht, fingers crossed big time! 2. Gather your own H&M online-shopping team Vraag je vriend, je moeder, je collega, iemand die ook maar om kan gaan met internet en het beste met je voor heeft. Probeer het belang van het hebben van een Alexander Wang item uit te leggen en geef je team een duidelijke H&M webshop instructie zodat ze er helemaal klaar voor zijn. 3. Save up for your plan B, also known as Ebay Bereid jezelf er op voor dat je niet door de online en offline wachtrij komt en je moet overstappen op Plan B. Plan B is Ebay/Marktplaats. Zet je standaard mail klaar (“Hallo, ik betaal direct X euro om het item over te nemen”) en hou Ebay/Marktplaats direct na de release in de gaten. Extra tip: Begin alvast te sparen voor plan B, want reken maar dat er een paar tientjes bovenop het originele bedrag worden gegooid. En spreek dan ook direct een grens af met jezelf! 4. Spent the night in front H&M Lijken bovenstaande opties je niks? Dan is er altijd nog plan Z: een nachtje voor de H&M. Nooit gedacht dat je zo gek zou zijn? Fuck it, het gaat om Alexander Wang. Ook al hebben we de collectie nog niet gezien, we weten allemaal dat een nachtje op de grond het waard is ;-) 5. Readers tip, leave a comment Een beetje flauw, maar tip 5 is de gouden tip van jou. Afterall, two heads are better then one! Ik heb vier tips bedacht, maar ik weet zeker dat ik de gouden tip ben vergeten. Deze vijfde plek is voor jou! Laat een comment achter en wie weet wordt jouw unieke tip toegevoegd aan deze lijst (met een linkje naar je blog/website natuurlijk!).

WHEN I want to wear an all black/grey/white outfit, I always try to play with diffferent textures, materials or patterns to make it more fun and interesting. Like this outfit, I'm wearing a simple black jeans and gilet so the sheer polkadot blouse stands out! And what makes this outfit even more fun and cool (duh) is the fact that I have a piercing (OMG) I really wanted a Helix for a long time and finally got the guts (and good friend) to do it! So we went together last Thursday! Luckily it didnt hurt that much, though cookie that I am (not) But right now it's a bit swollen en red and hurts! Hopefuly it soon gets better and heals fast! Hope you like the outfit and wish you a lovely day! I also want to thank you for your feedback about my last post. Feeling totally inspired again! All of your ideas/request are always welcome!

So here is what you are looking at: Somewhere in Bali, Wongyagede / My favorite beach, Bias Tugal / Holiday wardrobe / In the middle of nowhere / Jatiluwih rice paddies / Summer uniform, shorts & espadrilles / The cool Motel Mexicola in Seminyak Right now I'm off to Lombok and I hope to give you guys another update from there but most pics will follow once I get home since we mainly shoot with our analogue camera's. Tips & stuff will also follow once I get back! See you soon x
