In denim we trust

Full outfit via The Sting. Seven Sisters top (find here), Sever Sisters denim tregging (find here), Costes fluffy coatigan (find here)

Ever since I was a little girl, I've been a fool for denim. And hereby
I mean that I fell for Denim as soon as I knew the term.
But, although fools in love seem to make the wrong choices day after day,
me being a fool for denim has never disappointed me.
Nowadays, you mostly see me wearing high waist jeans, but there
are some mid rise denim jeans that I can appreciate as well. Like this
dark grey one here with the quilted knee parts.
So it was quite simple for me to complete this look. I chose
for one of my favorite items for fall/winter: the fluffy coatigan in
my favorite color: burgundy. Yes, a lot of favorites here.
And adding a floral top to it with some golden accessories just seemed
like the right thing to do ;-).
To celebrate the timeless goodness of denim, The Sting will
be hosting a party in the WesterUnie, Amsterdam on November 21st, which
is promised to be one you cannot miss! And the best part about all this is that
you can win tickets PLUS a whole year of free denim shoppings at The Sting,
simply by subscribing to their newsletter (here).
Oh, I will be there too, so we could meet up!
If you are just as big of a fan of denim as I am, make sure
you check out The Sting's lookbook (here).
Hope to see you the 21st!

Cropped knit

Wearing: Yesstyle crop knit (find here), River Island jeans, Touch of Chic ring/bracelet (find here), Dolce Vita boots

I'm so happy that my favorite summer trend is pulling through this winter.
I can wear crop tops and still look winter proof with knitted
crop tops like this one. Okay okay, this one is quite short and
when it's freezing you won't catch me with
a bare belly, but... the ones that are slightly longer than this
one would be perfect for I could still wear a vest underneath that will
not be seen when combined to a high waist jeans or skirt.
When it gets colder I will reserve the short ones
for indoor activities, cause I must
admit that it was kinda cold shooting this ensemble.
Let me know what you think of crop
tops during the winter. To hold or too cold?

More mottos, more life

Wearing: Le Motto T-shirt (find here), Chicnova skater skirt, Chicwish coat (find here), Diesel beanie, Chicwish shoes (find here)

How I fell for these "Le Motto" T-shirts with their striking mottos,
that have you thinking for days. Like this one: More gratitude,
less attitude. I think we could all learn from that.
At Le Motto they believe that words do have power and they state: "The fundamental
purpose behind the Le Motto Collection is to promote positivity. With the
impact of just a few well-chosen words, it can be enormous!"
To promote universal positivity, currently 10% of profits are being
allocated to anti-bullying causes.
And that, my friend, is what I call fashion with a function.
I already got two of those. Cannot wait to show
you the other, and maybe sweep you off of your
feet not just by styling. Cause that's what words do.
Let me know what you think!

Flower ánd power

Wearing: Ashanti Brazil floral blouse (find here), Front Row Shop leather pants, Primark heels, My Unique Style necklace (find here), Vintage rings

I know that the summer is gone and usually that would mean that people
will leave the florals in the back of their closet until
they get depressed somewhere around december and then take a darker
kind out for a twirl in the rainy woods. But, I decided
that I am not taking any distance from the floral print yet,
whether it's the happy, colorful summerish kind or the dark, mysterious
kind from winter. Cause if you match it to the right items
it will be appropriate anyways.
Likwise, I here combined a light, floral printed top
to these "heavy", black leather pants. And I must admit that I, myself,
was surprised that it turned out to be such great ensemble.
I added some cute detailed jewelry like an arrow necklace and some
bold, striking rings to complete the look.
Please let me know what you think of the floral
print during fall/winter? To do or to die?
