INSPIRATION / be careful what you wish for

Tomorrow I'll have my last exam which means this is my last day of die-hard studying. Or so it should be.. Because my level of concentration is currently below zero and all I can think about is how badly I want to go shopping and drink cocktails on the beach afterwards haha. So, instead of hopelessly trying to stay focused on my books I thought I'd give myself a little break and check out some webshops. Maybe in that way I can clear my mind haha? So on the top of my wishlist are black sandals / open shoes and a long summer coat. I really like both the shoes by Invito and the long, black coat by H&M. It's just that I'm not a big fan of H&M, most of the time I think the fabrics they use look very cheap, unfortunately. But hey, maybe I should go check out this coat in the store and see what the quality is! 

Which of the items above would you put on your own wishlist?

FASHION / wishing I was underneath the palm trees

shirt - vintage | notebook - flying tiger | mug - ikea

Today is all about wearing comfy clothing and drinking lots of coffee. I'm studying my ass off and coffee seems the only thing that's keeping me awake. This week I'll have two more exams and then it's time for some parties and relaxation haha. In the meantime I'm spending my 10-minute breaks dreaming about the summer holidays. I can't wait to wear my new vintage treasures while walking down the streets in Prague, Malaga and Granada (yes, I've got some good trips planned haha) Speaking of vintage treasures; I got this insanely cool shirt plus a pair of shorts and the best granny dress ever at the vintage kilo sale I was talking about a few days ago. It was organized by The Vintage Rebel and I must say it was one of the better kilo sales I've been to so far! If you're into vintage you should definitely keep an eye on their facebook page to see when they're hosting another vintage kilo sale!

And that's it for now, I'm off making more coffee haha!

FASHION / I'm the polka to your dots

dress - romwe | shirt - vintage | bag - oasap | shoes - vagabond

Hi there, this is me letting you know I'm still alive! I'm sorry it has been very quiet on here lately but I've been very busy with multiple things. First of all, after a break in house hunting I've started looking around for places to stay in Rotterdam again. During last week I checked out three rooms, of which one of them might be my future home. Nothing is for sure yet though, so I'm trying to not get my hopes up too high. Besides that I also had an exam on Tuesday, which btw went pretty well! Next week I'll have two more so the coming days will be full of studying, unfortunately. However I've also planned some fun things; I'm going to see Cinderella with my little sister and there's a vintage kilo sale in Rotterdam which I'll be going to. It has been a very long time since I bought some good, quality, vintage, so hopefully I can find some real treasures this weekend!

And that's it for now!

FASHION / back against the wall

sweater & skirt - oasap | shoes - vagabond

Last weekend Dylan and I went to a nice spot to take outfit pictures. We once saw it from a distance, and this time we finally went over there to check it out. The colour of the walls match so good with my grey sweater don't you think! After we took these pictures we went to see Kingsman: the secret service. I really enjoyed the movie, especially since it featured handsome guys in suits with English accents. Every girls dream right haha? Anyways, the coming days will be very busy for me. My exam week starts next week, I'll have fun parties and there's something else, something very exciting, that might happen very soon. I will not say too much about it just yet, because nothing is official yet. However, when it is, you will definitely read about it here!

And that's it for now!

NEW IN / pinstripe bikini top

bikini top - asos

About a week ago I ordered some things on Asos and I was so happy when I received the package a few days ago. Since last summer I've been on the hunt for a nice, black and white bikini top because mine had become way too small. You would say that's not that hard, but when you have a bigger cup (34D / 75D and up) it's quite hard to find something nice and affordable. But, I'm a happy girl because I finally found one! I absolutely love the black and white pinstripe this bikini top has and I can't wait to wear it this summer. Unfortunately the bikini bottom of this set was sold out in my size, so all I have to do now is find a nice bikini bottom to combine this top with. I'm thinking about horizontal stripes or maybe dots, just to make the overall look a bit playful! 

Besides the bikini top I also got a lovely striped top with an open back and some basic black shorts. It's still a bit (or a lot) too cold to wear these items so an outfit with them will come later!

FASHION / suit up!

blazer - h&m | top - mango | pantalon - topshop | shoes - vagabond | earrings - fashionology

Last Thursday I went to an award show hosted by my study committee. Some of my friends were nominated for 'best summary maker', 'best presenter' and 'miss sunshine'. Unfortunately, none of them won, but still we had a very fun night. There was music, wine, and everyone looked lovely. The dress code was black tie, so for the occasion I suited up! I'm sorry for the small amount of photographs, but the light was being annoying, so these were the only photographs worth posting. Tonight I'm going to the movies with Dylan, though I'm not sure which movie yet. I'm doubting between Into the Woods and Kingsman: The Secret Service. Which one would you recommend?

Enjoy your weekend!
