Split Ends


It's amazing how much a person can change over a period of time. I remember so well that my legs were a part of my body I always covered up. I was okay with knee length skirts but anything showing my legs from the knee up was banned from my closet. I used to hate the way they looked and was ashamed of them. But, with age comes wisdom, with inspiration comes courage and with love comes acceptance (or with acceptance comes love? both work I guess). I could never imagine showing off my legs but since you've known me for a while now, you all know that I'm all here for some leg action! I'm fond of splits in particular; dresses, tops and skirts with a split. Yes! Over here please! Now I can't imagine not showing them off. And no, not because I dropped tons of weight (which I obviously did not) or because I got them all lean and mean at the gym. No, just because I like them now :)

When I was younger I always felt that people that gave me the "yes, now that I'm maturing, I'm really getting to know myself" talks, were full of it. But I guess now, that I'm maturing (ghehe), I can relate. It sounds cliché but it's oh so true. And if you think I'm full of it, read this again in a few years ;)

Enjoy your week loves!

Fashion Symbiosis


If you follow me on snapchat (@supersizemyfash), you would have seen that I was drooling over these shoes. And even though I'm a grown up (or at least should be) I have the best mom that totally felt I should have these, so she got them for me. Love ya mom!

Now on to the dress: I have a weakness for hi-low styles. I know it's a "you either love it or hate it" thing but I absolutely love it. I immediately knew that I just had to pair the shoes with the dress, as both compliment each other. Total fashion symbiosis.

Another thing, whilst snapping these pics (near the water) a lady walked up to me and asked if I would like to snap some outfits pics on her boat, because she thought I looked so pretty :). Mind you, not a yacht of some sorts, it was a light ship that was used years ago to warn ships at sea and is now permanently docked. I thought it was so sweet of her so I accepted her offer. That would explain the change of scenery in some of my pics :)

Casual Elegance


This dress is a no brainer. Those are the best kind. You just put it on and BAM! Instant cute outfit. Because of the cape type layer at the top of the dress, it looks so put together. Depending on the accessoiries, there's still a lot of versatility. For example, paired with pearls and high black pumps, you get some extra chic-ness, or paired with small hints of color and a dash (just a dash!) of glitter like I did, makes it look elegant, yet playful (and FAB of course).

On another note, I'm giving away a €250 Navabi voucher on my Instagram! If you've been eyeing this dress or one of the other Zizzi Black Label styles, here's your chance! Head over to my Instagram for more details and join, giveaway will be open till Sunday August 30.

Where's the festival?


I've never been too fond of the tie dye print, until this set came along! It attracted me immediately and kind of reminded me of pretty skies and oceans. The model of the skirt is so cute, y'all know I love a little Angelina leg action here and there ;)

As Summer is holding on for dear life here, and not always being successful might I add, the time to rock utter Summer wear is NOW! I'm doing it while I still can.

This outfit was just SCREAMING for a top bun, some flash tattoos and funky sunglasses (which I'm madly in love with by the way!). This could totally be my Coachella outfit, lol.

Style tip: Looking for lace up sandals but you have bigger calves? Order them anyway and replace the laces with longer ones to adjust them to your calf size. Don't let no one stop you! :) For the Dutchies, HERE'S a store that sells any type of laces imaginable, in any length you want!

Boss Lady


What brings the "boss" vibe better than a pinstripe suit? I tell you, Zizzi makes the best suits, see two previous ones here and here. It can be worn in various ways and due to the jacket being a little kimono like, it can be mixed to the max! This lady wanted to add a little sexy vibe in contrast with the suit this time. It's times like these that I wish I had a smaller cup size, just so I could rock these type of styles bra-less. What a dream that would be (not the smaller cup size, the bra-less part, lol). I tried to pair it with my Bye Bra tapes that I reviewed exactly a year ago today (what a coincidence!) but the girls weren't feeling it, they did not sit the way I wanted to :\

Either way, I added a bra in a navy type color to match with the suit, I think it's good enough for now, until they invent something for us Tig 'ol Bitty girls. Well, you can't always win 'em all...

Enjoy your week!

Prints Charming


I've noticed that I've been wearing a lot of black lately, (not that it's a bad thing, I love black) but I thought it would be nice to bring more color today. Due to the hot weather I often find myself in maxi dresses; they're comfortable, cute and effortless. This fancy number has a beautiful color with a complimentary print, it caught my eye immediately. It's a great option for a chic garden party, or any party for that matter :)

Enjoy the rest of your week,

Zizzi Black Label


Meet Zizzi's newest collection, the Black Label. A collection designed to cater to the curvy and style conscious woman. Zizzi has teamed up once again with Femmes Regionales, that also designed the previous W.O.W. collection. I think they are a great match.

Modeled by the beautiful Ali Tate (I think she's perfect for this lookbook!) I think Zizzi really nailed it. The items are classic, stylish and timeless. Each of them have been designed to be a key piece in your wardrobe that can last you for seasons to come. It is the perfect line to satisfy our luxury workwear needs, as well as chic partylooks. I love the minimalism and the class it radiates.

Key Piece


I have a thing for shirt dresses. They're the easiest thing to put on and can be styled in various ways, due to the fact that you can completely button them up or down (or halfway). I think every woman should at least own one shirt dress (I won't judge if you don't, lol). This one has a very classy look, because of the laced linings and the shiny pearl top button. I love the attention to detail.

It's one of the classic and timeless pieces from Zizzi's new Black Label collection, I will post more on that tomorrow. I just feel that this dress suits various occassions, from a day at the office to an after work party. That is actually what I feel the whole collection represents.

I'll be back tomorrow with more!

Nautical


Blogger collabs and collections with brands always make me happy. Why? Because those times, I just know for sure that I will be drooling over every single thing. Don't get me wrong, a lot of the brands get it nowadays, and offer us a lot of cute styles. But it always warms my heart when one of "our own" gets to speak their mind and brings us just what we're craving for.

If possible*, I always try to get at least one item, to show my support and of course, cause the shit is cute :) This time I was completely surprised because for some reason, I did not know of this collab until a few hours before it hit online already (I actually saw it on Chastity's snapchat). That's actually even better, because it reduces the waiting time if you've really got your eye on something. Anyhoo, Garnerstyle for Rebdolls. A very cute collection with Chastity's signature all over it. I know she loves the nautical look and this dress immediately caught my eye. 

The only down side: when ordering from the US, the customs fees are ridiculous. I paid almost half of the original price of this dress for custom taxes. Let me tell you, the government = maffia.

Back to the dress, I'm very pleased with it but I do have to say that the pictures do not do it justice. I personally thought the dress looked better on me in real life than in these pics. Sometimes it's just hard to capture the complete essence in a photo, that's what we have professional photographers for I guess (No shade to my lovely sis who took these pics btw, she does a great job <3).

*Possible meaning if my wallet allows it and if the brand ships to my country ;)

Back to Black


With just a few more days left on my holiday calendar, I have to try and adjust back to working mode again (noooo). Four weeks fly by within the blink of an eye (hey that rhymes!). Last week the hubs, mini me and I went on a mini vacay, hence the lack of outfit posts last week. We had fun, we visited the zoo, went swimming, amusement parks and so on. Man, that makes a parent tired as hell I tell you. And my mini me still has energy left for days. Really, I don't know how they do it.

I tried to stay connected via snapchat but the hotel's wifi was sooo lousy. I literally had to sit in the hall one night just to be able to watch my show on Netflix, and I already used all of my own internet :/. I felt a little disconnected from the world and I did not like it ONE bit. Shows how much of an addict I am, that's not a good thing right?

Well, anyway, wish me luck on adjusting back to regular life and enjoy the rest of your week!
xoxo

P.S.: Yes, I know that little loop thingy on my outfit is showing, but hey, life sucks sometimes ;)
