There are so many types of dresses in this world: dresses that make you look sweet, dresses that make you look charming, etc. and dresses that give your body extra BODY by bringing out your assets in the best way possible. THIS is one of those dresses. First of all, the color, it is absolutely stunning, it pops! Secondly, the fit, it is so comfortable and looks amazing. It is body hugging but does not show flaws (well, maybe I just don't have any, lol). It brings out your figure in the best way possible and I have to admit, I felt really feminine and sexy in it. I think I need this in every color!

I live for matching sets. Apart from them being an easy way out whenever you're not inspired to match a top or a pair of pants with something else, they're just cute. In this case, the flower print is so lovely. Both make good items to pair with anything else but I liked wearing them together. I actually came across this set after taking the MS Mode summer quiz to determine what type of summer person I am. For my Dutchies, check out the Summer quiz MS Mode is hosting on their Facebook page, there are great prices to win!

Summer is still in full swing! I'm enjoying every minute of it, as Dutch summers have proven to be quite unpredictable. You already know how much I love an all white, clean look, and this dress is a cutie! It fits beautifully, feels great and it was a bargain! Those are the best. In my mind this dress takes me to a honeymoon on a beautiful beach, walking barefoot near the turquoise blue water. If only that were true (I'd love a second honeymoon!).

This color hue gives me all sorts of mermaid feels. It's like Ariel herself donated some sheddings of her mermaids tail in order to have this bomber made (thank you, Ariel!). It is so lovely. When you're more in an Ursula (my girlllll) kind of mood, just rub over the sequins and turn it into a black bomber. Yay for versatility again, 2 coats in one!
We all know that although sequins are sooo glittery and pretty, they can scratch like hell. I was pleasantly surprised that this bomber was fully lined with a thick, satin like fabric, protecting you from all the itchy scratchiness that sequins bring. Making it super comfortable to wear, you don't even feel them. As a true 'sequinista', I can tell you that it's not always the case. Pretty hurts, I guess. Oh, well.

I think we've seen this print on literally every item at H&M. And I like all of them, but this jumpsuit I really wanted to try. The whole collection with this print is from the main range, not their plus size section (which still needs an upgrade if you ask me, but that's a different discussion), and since I never shy away from "straight size" shopping, I took the liberty of ordering it.
Quick style note: This jumpsuit has no stretch, I ordered the largest size, which is a European 46 (UK18, US16). I'm usually a 46/48 (UK18/20, US16/18).
Much to my surprise, it fit perfectly, and I absolutely love the colors and the way it fits on me. I personally think it looks better in real life actually. This gives me such a 70's feel (which I know is already "out of style", but I don't give a sh*t) and I'm all here for it!

I think it's safe to say that this is one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever owned. It doesn't get any more ladylike than this. It's super feminine, classy, but sexy and fits a wide range of different body shapes. I already gave a quick peek at it on my snapchat (add me, @supersizemyfash) and received nothing but love. I encountered quite a few stares when I walked around in this dress, so get ready to turn a few heads if you decide to get it! My mom (who also took these lovely pics, thank you mom!), was completely over the moon with it so she ordered the baby blue version. She's not plus size and what I like best is that this dress is available in their Curve range, as well as their main range. Finally you can play twinsies with your non-plus sized bestie, mom, auntie or whatever! Extra points for their wide range of sizes!

This dress combines two elements that I will never get tired of: faux leather and mint. It rarely gets much better than this, y'all. I mean, look at my face. All smiles! Another thing that made me VERY happy recently was the article I got to write for the Dutch Cosmopolitan for their "Body Confidence Week". It's in Dutch unfortunately, but feel free to check it out!
In other news, summer holiday has started! I finally have the time to shoot some more outfits, can't wait to share them with you!

This color is Summer to me. I love the way it matches with my skin, and the lively vibes it gives. Even on a cloudy day this color will bring you some form of life. I feel so sunkissed. If you look close enough, you can still see the tan lines (on my shoulders) from my Monif C bikini, of when I was in Miami :) I am so ready to enjoy this summer! How about you?

Happy 4th of July to all my USA babes! Today is a special day. Although I don't live in the States, the 4th of July is a special day for me as well. Not because of independance but more because of dependance I could say. Today marks my 7th wedding anniversary with my love. 7 years already, makes me feel so old, lol. Love is such a beautiful thing. I can honestly say that after being together for 12,5 years, of which 7 married, we're still happily in love. I feel so blessed and priviliged for that.
For those celebrating, enjoy and be safe!
