Skirts, blouses and jeans - sponsored by Romwe


April, warm, hot even.. and then cold.. including a day of hail! Yes, hail.. for real! :-P

Weird weather aside, I got to choose a couple of items from the Romwe website and I would have posted this sooner but my work brought me to Washington DC last week. It was a lot of fun even though I had to work long hours over there! No dressing up.. and not much social media activity. I do apologise if you haven't heard from me in a while!

Anyway..this time when checking out the Romwe website, I felt I needed a couple of blouses and a midi-skirt for when I want to wear something office chic! Of course, I couldn't help myself, so I also picked a mini-skirt and a pair ripped jeans. Because I'm still me! ;-)

The first two items are a simple white lapel long sleeve blouse and a pair of black high waisted ripped jeans. I do think that for most work places (that aren't too strict) this would be considered office appropriate, right?

I used the same white blouse together with a plaid bodycon white skirt.. and yes, that is a super short skirt, I know!! ;-)

The fourth item is another blouse, but blue with vertical stripes. For this office look, I used the same pair of black ripped jeans of the first outfit.. I do love the versatility!

The fifth and last items I got, was a midi-skirt with a black and white floral pattern. I paired it with a black t-shirt.. nothing fancy, but I think it's a cute summer outfit. And the length makes it quite elegant for a lot of occasions.

So, this was an attempt to mix and pair all the different items from the same haul. What do you think of them? I really want to hear your feedback and opinions! :-)

Again, my experiences with Romwe was very pleasant and they were so patient while I found the time to get photos and videos.. and post all of the stuff. They also gave out a $5 coupon code when your order is above $55: RWENJOY5

Anyway, here are the links if you want to check these dresses out!

Have a great weekend!

Lots of small video clips in the sun.. enjoy!!

Staying warm in a fuzzy coat


Yay, it's April. Wow.. that first quarter of 2017 really flew by, didn't it?! Only 9 more months until NYE. :-P

We have a saying in the Netherlands about the Dutch weather that goes "April doet wat het wil." which basically comes down to "April does what it wants.". So.. outdoor outfits need to be able handle any temperature.. from a chilly 5 to an agreeable 25 degrees.

In my case, this means: 1) a warm coat/jacket 2) a dress that's not too thin and 3) tights and boots!!

This white coat is really warm, so you won't hear me complain. The only thing I have to worry about is to eat a sandwich with care.. because I'm the type of person to get ketchup stains quite easily!

I love jeans.. but sometimes you just want to wear a dress, so why not combine the two? This dress is short, but I solved that with some cool patterned tights. :-)

Most of these pics were taken under a bridge in Rotterdam full of graffiti.. which is also the reason why there is not much light. But actually, there was was a lot of sun as the above picture clearly shows. Sunglasses were definitely required!

I do love my fuzzy coat, but actually.. I hope I don't have to wear it too often this April! :-P

 I hope the Monday was not too bad!

Can you believe it? I always take many clips when I'm doing an outfit shoot, but I only two usable clips. So, the resulting video is rather short. Oh well,.. more luck next time!
