Fun fact: did you know that Pinkpop is the oldest festival in the Netherlands? Throughout the years they have had some serious headliners, it’s almost hard to believe that the festival happens in a tiny town in the south of the Netherlands. As a proud southern girl I obviously visited the festival several times, and this year I was finally able to go again! Check out my looks and some of the vibes below:
“Girls Supporting Girls”… Last week I bought this shirt and I loved it so much that I just had to make an #OOTD about it for you guys! Everyone that knows me also knows that I am a huge fan of spreading positive vibes and a true believer in Karma and helping each other up instead of bringing each other down. That’s amongst others why I organized two network events for female bloggers, wrote a blog about How to get more Instagram Followers, and invite other bloggers to do fun activities together.
Girls Compete with one another
Women Empower each other
Don’t you just love summer? I always want to be outside and enjoy the days as much as I can, last week I even went for a quick spin at basketball – a perfect excuse to wear my sporty summer look! Fun fact: Did you know I used to play in my high school basketball team? To be honest I’m not the biggest fan of fitness – or any sport that you have to do alone – but I looove competitive sports, they get me so pumped up!
We cannot avoid it anymore guys… Winter is arriving and it’s time to snuggle up! If we don’t have to be outside to rock the layered trend, it is SO much better to stay inside in your PJ’s, am I right?! I have a confession to make to you guys: I love fashion with all my heart, but if I would have to choose my working outfit I will always go for the fluffy pyjama! Lucky me that a lot of my blogging work is at home behind my laptop… ;)
Anyways, we were talking about PJ’s! Where to get them this season?! Last friday I received news that the Cozy Collection from Hunkemöller had been launched and since this is one of my favorite brands, I rushed to one of the few shops here in Barcelona to check it out!
Like a little kid in Winterwonderland I hopped to all the different designs, the collection is so varied! Pyjama’s, blankets, fluffy onesies, socks, hats, bathrobes, and more! After trying on pretty much the full collection, I decided to go for a pink fluffy onesie to wear during my ‘Stay at home workingdays’ (IT’S SO FLUFFYYY! – yes, I made a Despicable Me reference there), and a cute Scandanavian inspired pyjama dress with a matching hat and slipper boots.
Simple, cute, comfy and soft… that’s how I would like to dress every single day! Do you guys like the looks that I chose? What kind of outfit is your favorite to wear at home?
That was it! How to rock your PJ’s #flawlessly, may your winterdays be snuggly and fluffy my dears. Now if you excuse me, it’s time to get back to my blanket and cup of tea!
Lots of Love,
P.s. Here is also a tip for you lovelies! At the moment Hunkemöller has some special discounts on the Cozy Collections for the early birds: if you buy two products you get 20% discount, if you buy three products you get 30%! You’re welcome :)
Tomorrow it’s happening for me, I am going back to school! I will start my Master in Art Direction and Creative Advertising at the INSA Business School here in Barcelona, and I am looking forward to it like crazy! That is why I am dedicating today’s #OOTD to a school-proof outfit: simple but classy.
Earlier this week I was visiting the designer Loretta Piovano, who is known for her feminine designs and adding interesting details to the outfits in order to create unique pieces. One of the designs she gave me was this black jumpsuit, which has a gorgeous neckline and a perfect cut… I was immediately in love! The jumpsuit itself is a typical all-black-classic, which gives lots of space to varying styling options.
So for today guys… I NEED YOUR HELP! There are so many cool ways to wear this jumpsuit that I can’t decide which one to choose for my first day of school, let’s check them out:
The Classy Lady
For the first option I went for a feminine style with black heels, a turban and a draped scarf from S Oliver. As a color detail I am holding a bright blue clutch of Karl Lagerfeld, I got it in Paris last fashion week during the presentation of Karl’s new collection… I love it! While wearing this outfit I feel like a true lady who can go to class one moment (perhaps slightly overdressed, but definitely stylish!), and then go for a cocktail with a friend afterwards… who wouldn’t love this combination?!
Shop the Look:
Turban Mango: €9,99
Scarf Zara (similar): €25,95
Wallet Karl Lagerfeld (Pink): €85,-
Or in case you just LOVE the blue:
Blue Clutch Givency: €360,-
The ‘Too Cool for School’
Another idea is to just completely ditch the lady look and go for a streetstyle with my all-time favorite black Converse sneakers. With a comfy long navy-style cardigan I can comfortably walk around without getting cold and my big backpack can definitely hold any book I might need! Perhaps you might have noticed that the neckline of the jumpsuit changed… while being clumsy and putting it on wrong, I actually discovered that I like this straight neckline too, PLUS the back has a cool detail to it now! I’m not sure if Loretta Piovano had a reversible jumpsuit in mind when she designed this beauty, but it sure works! With the streetstyle look I feel confident and casual, which is also very important for a first day!
Shop the Look:
Converse Shoes: €55,-
Mango Cardigan: €49,99
Zara Bonnet: €9,95
Braids, black derby shoes and a fedora hat… how cute can it get?! To don’t look all too much like a naïve schoolgirl I edged up the look with a leather jacket and my little Moschino bag. I think it sends the message: I’m cute, but don’t mess with me! At least, that’s what I like to believe haha. Personally I love Fedora hats since they make an outfit instantly fashionable. The good ones are hard to find but once you got it… cherish it! In this girly chic outfit I feel stylish and ready to rock my day!
Shop the look:
Zara Fedora Hat: €25,99

Moschino bag (similar): €621,-
There you go, three options, all with their own pros and cons… Which one to choose? Let me know which look you would like to see me wear tomorrow! If you are just as in love with this jumpsuit as I am let me know, you can order them via e-mail (email@example.com)
