Duster Coat & Cherry Blossoms | OOTD

Last week, Robbert and I went on our seasonal shopping trip. Usually at the beginning of a season we’ll take a day out to head into another town and buy ourselves a few new, seasonally appropriate items. I like taking Robbert shopping with me, as for some reason he has the amazing ability to spot pieces in the store that I don’t notice or don’t immediately like, but that look amazing on me. On this most recent shopping trip, Robbert pointed out this khaki duster coat at Primark. I dismissed it right away but as we kept walking, I couldn’t get it out of my mind. I headed back and decided to try it on, and of course, it looked amazing.

This is a piece I’d say isn’t really “my style”, in the sense that I don’t own anything similar and I don’t really know what to combine it with. So, naturally, I asked Robbert to help me style an outfit, using the duster coat as the key piece. And here you have it! I wouldn’t have thought of putting this together just by myself, but oh my, I do love it. I think this is a really good look with just the right amount of “out-there-ness”, I feel amazing in it and I’ll definitely be repeating this one.

Cold Winter Day | OOTD

It’s been freezing in the Netherlands. Proper freezing. Ice skating fanatics are going mad, there’s frost on the trees, and there’s even snow on the ground in the countryside. We don’t get snow often in the Netherlands so it always feels super special when there is some. I’m personally very bad at handling cold, my body does much better in a warmer climate, but every now and again some good, old-fashioned wintery weather is just plain fun. Robbert and I decided to head out to Amelisweerd to take a little walk as the sun was shining, and I brought my camera to capture some of the beauty. I also thought I’d share my standard outdoors outfit for winter with you, what I wear when it’s freezing and how I attempt to stay at least somewhat comfortable. Hint: wearing two pairs of gloves helps a lot. I always try to make an effort to make my outerwear look cute, especially this time of year as it’s often all people see you in.

A Little Colour | OOTD

I set myself a challenge; to put together an outfit that I love, without any black or burgundy pieces. I still adore black and burgundy, but it’s good to have a little variety, you know? Well I’m happy to say I’ve succeeded! This outfit, which features a few brand new pieces that are quickly becoming favourites, is super comfy and perfect for autumn. I love the way brown hair looks with dark, mossy green, so I’d been on the hunt for a nice green sweater for a while. I found this one at H&M recently and it’s already become an autumn staple. Such a perfect basic piece to layer with!

Over The Knee Boots | How To Style

Recently I finally took the plunge and got myself a beautiful pair of over the knee boots. I’d been eyeing this style of footwear since the cold seasons of last year, but wasn’t able to find a good, affordable pair for myself. This year however, when autumn came around, I was determined to find some over the knee boots that would help me battle the cold in style. I found this lovely faux suede pair in a small boutique in Utrecht, and I’m over the moon with them. Although they’re quite an extreme fashion piece, they’re surprisingly easy to pull off. Today I’m going to show you three different ways you can style over the knee boots!

A Shoot In Utrecht

A while ago I got contacted by the lovely young photographer Monique Dekker of M-Unique Fotografie, asking whether I’d like to do a photoshoot with her one day. Of course I would!
We agreed to meet up in Utrecht city centre to take some photos. Monique had already picked out a couple of nice locations we could go (places I’d actually never been to before and will definitely keep in mind for future outfit shoots), so everything was quick and smooth. Although I have some little experience before the camera I’m by no means a professional model, but Monique was great at suggesting poses and making me feel comfortable.

All in all it was a really fun experience, and I received the final photos very quickly. Thanks so much Monique, I’d love to shoot with you again!
I’d like to share some of my personal favourites from the shoot with you today 🙂
