I am absolutely OBSESSED with all white looks. And I would definitely wear it more often, if I wasn't such a messy, clumsy person. White always screams for me to spill my food, drinks or to accidentally get lipstick smudged on it. Ugh. Life is hard.
But, sometimes, I have a good day a manage to keep everything squeaky clean. It always feels like some type of personal victory, it's like a "once in a year" event. The last time this historic event took place was April last year :) (or do this one and this one count too? :P)
Well, it was great while it lasted, see you again next year, pearly whites.

I think mint is definitely one of my favorite colors for Spring or Summer -besides pink of course-, whether in, or out of style. It just looks so fresh, clean and fun. Remember, in one of my last posts I mentioned that I'm all for matching short sets this summer, and I would love to add some more to my collection. I think a baby pink and light yellow version would be perfect. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for those. If you happen to stumble across one of them, please let me know!
Apart from dresses, it's one of the easiest ways to dress up and be stylish. Just put them on and you're good to go! I love that. I wouldn't necessarily say that I'm a lazy dresser but hey, how could I object to this?
Enjoy your day loves,

My husband calls this my cricket sweater :) Although I'm kind of familiar with the sport, I still don't actually get the game. I guess because it's not one of the top sports here (no shade). Anyhoo, with the weather still shifting from "Great" to "Meh", it's still sweater weather. I chose to work with the sporty feel of the sweater by adding some leggings and sneakers, I think I look Très Sporty! What do you think?

Don't be mislead by the title, this post has absolutely nothing to do with babies ;)
Remember that in last week's post, I mentioned that I was already planning my new pink outfit? I wasn't lying bruh :) Pink coats are always a win. I spotted this one at Primark during the opening event of their second store in Rotterdam, back in November last year. This pink coat, originally priced €30 (which is already cheap), was just sitting there, with 50% off! I had to take it home with me 'cause it was so lonely. Well, and I've been waiting to rock it ever since.
Because the pink is very bright and eyecatching, I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit more basic, but still cute. Double denim works perfect with pink!

This. Dress. Is. Everything. Black and white? Check. Maxi length? Check. Flowy fabrics? Checker-de-check! It's perfect for looking classy and still being comfortable while at it. I think I just found my go-to Summer dress! Aaaand... If I'm not mistaken, this dress should also become available in pink (with a black stripe) and baby blue, so keep an eye on it! I know I need one in every color!
Enjoy your week!

With the weather improving more and more, it's fun to do things outside. A few days ago, my husband came home from work and spontaneously said: "Let's go kite flying". Since the sun goes down very late these days, and my daughter and myself were enjoying our May break (meaning, it's okay for her to stay up late from time to time) we thought it was a great idea. It was such a beautiful day, the sun was shining and the wind was blowing, but not too hard. Just perfect.
My daughter enjoys it a lot and I have to say that "playing outside" with a kite has been a while ago for me, I can't even remember. While busy working to get my kite in the air, my husband took a few quick snaps of my outfit. This dress looks both chic and sporty, and it's so comfortable. I love the lace hem.
Anyhoo, with Summer coming up, I enjoy the fact that there's still fun things to do after a long day of work, and that the weather is usually still great. Apart from that, I live in a highly recreational area, meaning a small beach and also woods are only 5 minutes away from where I live. Guess now you understand why I love Spring and Summer so much, eh? :)
Enjoy your Friday!!

A movie with so many fab quotes. When I tried this all pink look, the title of this post immediately came to mind. You all know pink is my happy color. It's so fun and cute. I love how it's mixed with grey in this snake like print. Since one can never have too much pink, I went ahead and added a pink clutch, pink shoes and a pink lippie. While writing this, I'm already planning my next pink themed outfit... And since I'm a "rebel", I don't care if it's Wednesday or not :)

How cute is this short set? It was also one of the things that caught my eye when I visited the plus size fair back in February. I love matching sets, whether it's shorts or skirts, and if I could, I would have them in any color!
As the Dutch weather has been very unpredictable lately, with ups and a lot of downs, I had to grab my chance to wear this set during one of the "ups". I'm hoping the weather will stabilize soon, 'cause I definitely need more of this!
Enjoy your week,

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen that I came across this shirt at a plus size fashion fair in Amsterdam, back in February. I absolutely loved it, because of the cute pearly embellishments on the collar and the grey and white color combo. So when this baby came in the mail last week, I was more than excited to take it out for a spin!

I'm not that big of a flower expert but I believe the flowers on this dress are poppies and daisies, perfect for Spring. In case they're not, please don't hurt me! :)
Yellow is always a great color for me to up my mood and when I found this dress online, I knew I had to have it. The dress is from the "straight size" line of H&M (link at the end of this post) but it looked so big and frumpy on the model that I decided to give it a shot. FYI, I ordered the largest size and it's even a little big on me too. I actually had to belt it and use pins for a better fitted look. Either way, I love the way it came out.
Enjoy your Monday,
