Matthew Williamson is one of my favourite designers, every fashion week I wait to see the beautful dresses that will be showcased on the catwalk. What I love about the collections is they always inspire my wander lust mind and make me dream of exotic places, of course in my mind I would travel to far places with one of the dresses packed in my beautiful travel trunk (ironically I usually travel light but not in this daydream). I love that the colours make me dream of Rajistan, Goa, Thailand, Bali, Marrakesh and all those other places I still have to visit some day. I was so excited this week to see on twitter and instagram that Net-a-Porter was asking Mathhew to share his best pictures from his travels under the #matthewmapped.

This picture is from the net-a-porter  #matthewmapped instagram shots and this specific one is of him in the Yves Saint Laurent garden in Marrakesh (memo to self: must go here).

Below are some of my favourite pieces from recent collections that I would love to have in my wardrobe!

Matthew WillamsonFavourite look from Matthew Williamson A/W 13/14 …. the floral colours and short funky style would definetly be worn again and again.

Matthew Willamson Spring 13I love this Cross over style and the colours remind me of a beautiful courtyard that you would stumble across in the depths of the Morrocan countryside. Yes I want this dress!

Matthew Willamson Spring 13The colour of this dress stuck in my mind since fashion week in last year and I was determined to find something similar as I thought the colour would go well with my skin tone. See what I bought and wore and tell me if you think it suits me.

Do you like Matthew Williamson does he inspire you to travel and discover far exotic places?

P.s Pictures from style.com and Net-a-Porter instagram you can also buy Matthew Williamson from Net-a-Porter

The Jetty Lounge is my new favourite place ….. fact its Sojustnice! I love that you can just sit out on the beach and enjoy a Dubai sunset whilst being in a relaxed but stylish atmosphere. I m crazy about the sea, sand and palm trees so while the weather is still good I will be going back again and again! If your there for cocktail hour, there is plenty of choice and the Mezze is the best accompanying food for your chilled out evening. Jetty LoungeIMG_2471IMG_1900Foot firstMy favourite thing about defining my style is trying to find the fashion equilibrium between Eastern influences with Western style. My outfit for the Jetty Lounge was a local kaftan in seafoam colour mixed with denim shorts, hope you like this outfit?

Top: Souk in Dubai, Shorts: Zara, Shoes: Oasis, Nail Polish: Essie

Its the weekend here in Dubai and so I thought I would show the outfit from last friday night. It was all about fringing as you can see from the bag and top ….. and a perfect evening of #justnice Cocktails and good company. All that GlittersIMG_1873IMG_2455A number of years ago Dubai had artists decorate these camel statues and this one still stands outside of Emirates Towers and I just love the bling concept. He always gets a kiss goodbye on my way home……

Do you think my skirt suited the camel?

I ve been having a fantastic week chilling and hanging out with my BFF’s and I ll be sharing the pics throughout this week. I wanted to share the outfit below that kicked off the week with my friends. We went to brunch with a fantastic view, food and atmosphere.

Last time I was in Dubai in February I managed to hit the end of the sales and picked up this leather jacket. It was love at first sight and I m predicting your going to be seeing a lot more of this jacket especially when I m back in Amsterdam. 
Studded Leather JacketIMG_2097I love the studs that are on this jacket and I thought I would team it with my crisp white shirt and no necklace so there wasn’t too much happening around the neckline.

Jacket: Zara, Shirt: Massimo Dutti, Jeans: Acne, Shoes: Nike, Bag:Celine

What would you wear this jacket with?

Ciao for now xx

I have been wanting to check out the Jumeriah Zabeel Saray for a long time. Look out for a follow up post about what I thought about the hotel ambience and architecture. Below you can see that we spent late afternoon having tea and left early evening.20130318-200129.jpg

I love this blue skirt and loved teaming it with a white top and flip flops to give it a light spring, causal look. Hope you liked it. xx
