last look of summer

Metallics1

Hey all, Whilst were in the midst of Fashion Weeks and I think I can safely say summer is over here in Amsterdam I thought I would show you my last summer outfit. I was running to a lunch with a friend and thought I would try and go bare legged and of course I judged the weather wrong and was freezing.

Here is a new favourite skirt for fall, I love the shape and of course the Metallic skirt is perfect for winter to add some colour to my usual darker outfits. I am already imagining I will wear it with my new knee high boots that I got from the HM Paris collection. I actually rushed to buy them when they went on sale last week. I had been dreaming about them since I saw them on the catwalk in February. The funniest part, I actually put fashion before safety and rode my broken bike to HM to buy the boots and decided to fix my bike on the way home! As the weather is already changing and I am heading back to Dubai I hope I can show you some fall looks before the sunny weather will strike my wardrobe again.

What I Wore: Top HM (many seasons ago), Skirt: ASOS, Jewellery: MADE, By Sophie, Sophie’s closet, Bag: HM

Hope your having a great weekend!

Ciao for now

morningHey guys, Here we are middle of the week and luckily its another sunny day, since Sunday the weather has been raining and miserable. I woke up this morning ready to catch up with a back log of emails and some NYFW fashion shows and the sun was shining. So I put on my sunny outfit since I will be indoors most of the day I love to just be comfortable at home. I am getting ready to head to Milan and Dubai in a couple of weeks and so need to do some shopping for those trips and I for sure can’t wait to be back in Dubai and wear some of my last summer purchases.

I am also choosing my favourite trends from the SS 14 shows to show you too this week. Can’t wait for LFW ….. always a little bit of eccentricity and the London look makes me experiment with my wardrobe.

What I Wore: Top: Fillippa K, Shorts: Maje, Trainers: Nike, Necklace: Tiffany & Co, Bracelet: By Sophie Ipad case by OTT

What are you guys buying for Autumn?

InvitationstreetWIWIron girlMini Fashion girlVogue NLmodelgoodbyeHey All, So last night was probably one of the hottest days we have had in Amsterdam this summer and to top it off it was also Vogue’s Fashion Night Out. The pictures are a snap shot of all the funny happenings from the PC Hoofstraat and Bijenkorf. I wanted to bring you a mini video today but, Murphy’s Law means my video editing is just not working for me today!

For me, the most fun thing about fashion events or indeed fashion weeks is of course, the people watching and last night didn’t disappoint. I think I said to at least 3 people last night I couldn’t believe how dressed up the Dutch girls were, if you have ever been to Holland you will understand this is a rarity! Dutch readers, I mean no offence but, compared to other countries you tend to be the most dressed-down and over layered! However, last night I saw fashionista’s, Hipsters, Beautiful Girls and was blown away by the style on most of the girls. Hopefully, this a new Dutch style and its here to stay.

Talking of style stay tuned to the blog for the coming weeks for my favourite looks straight from the catwalks to the blog!

What I Wore (sorry no live pic): Top: HM, Skort: Zara, Bag:HM Jewellery: Day Birger et Mikkelsen, Tiffany & Co and By Sophie. 

Do you love people watching?

Dream Dress

MW1MW2DSC_0233Hey All, Here is my last look I wanted to show you from Portugal. This has to be one of my favourite dresses. I found it at Harvey Nichols at Mall of the Emirates in Dubai where Matthew Williamson’s best pieces are sold in Dubai. I love this dress because it fits just perfect and this is often hard to find when your petite. I didn’t have to take it to the tailor or make any adjustments.

Before on the blog I have talked about my love of Matthew Williamson’s designs and its because each season his pieces always could fit into my travel plans for the year with his typically Eastern influences on his Western dresses, perfect for the UAE. From when I saw this dress on the catwalk, I had been dreaming about it. To add a little simplicity to the dress I get the jewellery minimal with just my evil eye bracelet (colours match perfectly) and some simple white shoes. I have been loving the white shoe trend this season and I think they definitely made my tan look much stronger!

What I wore: Dress: Matthew Williamson, Shoes: Zara and Bracelet: By Sophie 

What’s your dream dress?

Here is my last look from London, after trawling Columbia Road and Shoreditch you can read all about that here. I took some photos with some of the street art in the area wearing my new favourite jeans. I am having a bit of a love affair with nude and blush colours at the moment and when I saw these jeans in Harvey Nichols Dubai I had to have them. The star vest is a new purchase from J Crew on my recent trip to West Coast US. You can read all about my stay in LA and road trip north on the blog and catch up with my recent travels to London too.

What I Wore: Earrings: Ralph Lauren, Top: Black vest from HM Nederland and Star T-shirt J Crew, Jeans: Paige Denim, Bag: Zara, Sandals: Bazaar Istanbul, Sunglasses: Versace

Have you got your summer travel plans sorted yet?

London Look

DSC_0116I was here in London for a few days to catch up with some friends and family. Although I am half English I don’t get to come back very often. I love to be in London for architecture and vibe of the city and I have tried to capture both of these in the photos. As you guys are viewing this post I am on a long haul flight to Los Angeles. I wish LA was my home and I try to go as often as possible since it is my zen place (I’ll tell you all about that ASAP). Can’t wait to share my trip with you guys and in the mean time enjoy these photos.

DSC_011811DSC_012411I am loving this new shirt I picked up on a shopping spree in Amsterdam recently. I love its loose fit and how it just drapes off the shoulders. The weather in London over the last few days was a little here and there so it was difficult to know what to wear. So, I teamed the shirt with my favourite Zara shorts and sadly had to wear tights because it wasn’t quite warm enough for bare legs. The necklace was a gift from my friend Karime for my birthday and I know your going to be seeing lots more of it on the blog.

Shirt: Maje, Necklace: Second Female, Shorts: Zara, Belt: Maje, Tights, Wolford, Boots, Dune, Bracelet, By Sophie and Tiffany & Co, Watch: American Eagle Outfitters
