Everything is Black and White

bwThe weather is for sure getting grey and so, I am loving that the fall/winter collections are not all dark colours. Whilst White is still a neutral colour I some how feel it has that bit of something that adds an usual break from the normal dark fall wardrobes. I have put together some of our favourite white and black items in my wardrobe both old and new. Every season I like to add additions to my wardrobe and I am not a trend type person when I m shopping. I look at the fabrics, quality and for items I believe will be with me for a while so I can mix and match everything. I also like to mix up my brands and try to add my slightly more expensive pieces with my bargain finds.

From Left to Right: White, lace Jumper: Sandro, Black Lace skirt: Forever 21, Leggings: Trunk V, White Sequin Top: Topshop, Black faux leather skirt: ASOS, Faux Fur Jacket HM Paris Collection. 

Boots: Ankle Boots: ACNE, Over the Knee: HM Paris Collection

Can’t wait to show you how I style all of these items in the coming months.

What kind of things have you been buying for the coming season? I ll show you mine if you show me yours 😉

Ciao for now xx

 

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?

Ciao For Now xx

Fruit Infused Water

Hey Guys, so I am currently trying to eat/drink good and that is starting my day with fruit infused waters. I thought I would share with you some photos of my colourful waters from my kitchen. I have never been a big water drinker even when I was living in Dubai. Well, I have now found a way to stomach water with a little bit of sweetness to satisfy my sweet tooth. If you follow me on Instagram (sojustnice) you would have seen that I was making fresh juice every morning while I was in Dubai. In Amsterdam I don’t have a juice machine so I can say that the waters are a kind of substitute and if you leave them to infuse over night they are delicious in the morning.

What you’ll need:

Jam Jars

Fruit of your choice 

Water

Just cut the fruit up, add it to the jar and fill with water then put the lids of the jars and leave in your fridge overnight and your done. Its truly not more complicated than that.

What I Wore: Jumper: French Connection, Necklace: Tiffany & Co, Bracelets: By Sophie, Tiffany & Co and Lijnbaangracht Market, Amsterdam

Have you tried Fruit Infused waters?

Mood Monday #6 Jackets

Jackets

As I post this I feel it maybe a little premature but, one of the best things about blogging is that I can spend endless hours on the web ‘window shopping’ and say its work! This weekend I was surfing the web and was drooling over jackets on offer for fall. This time of year is always difficult and I love the pre-fall collections but sometimes they just don’t hit the mark either. Now, I must say its still sunny outside here in Amsterdam but, my Arab blood means I am usually colder than my friends here and unlike some women my fetish is not shoes but jackets! I have lots of them and love them. I have always worked in a corporate environment and so a jacket is perfect to make your work outfit look super smart and for me also an essentil when traveling as planes are freezing!

I am loving the three above which I saw on Matches.com. Left to Right: Camouflage jacket by Christopher Kane, The perfect casual jacket: Stella McCartney, Smart Casual Jacket by A.L.C

Which one of these jackets would you want?
