This Dutch weather can't seem to make up his mind. Sunny and warm, to cold and windy. However, I was determined to brighten up the day by submerging myself in flowers completely. I found this skirt and later I stumbled upon this floral mesh bodysuit and immediately I knew I wanted to pair them together. It's giving the illusion of a dress but the separate pieces are not even the same brand, that's what I like :)
The wind had no chill by the way so my hair is all over the place in most of the pics but hey, I'm a flower in the wind 😉

Ahhh, I'm loving these off the shoulder styles. It's cute, and flirty. And yes, I have stretch marks there too and they're not shy to come out and play!
When I came across this shirt, I loved that it looked like I took one of my husband's shirts and just cut the collar off (and made flute sleeves out of them). I'm still contemplating if I should rock this one to work 😁 I want to so baddd...
Style note: Because of my larger cup size, I actually sized up on the shirt to avoid the buttons not being able to close around my bust area. Looking at it now, I probably could have done with my regular size.

Nothing screams more spring than the color yellow. It represents brightness, rays of sun, the color of many flowers that are rising up again. Add ruffles and lace to the mix and you're all set!
I've come to a point in my life that certain styles I used to wear as a teenager are coming back again.
And that's how everything revolves (imagine the Lion King title song) "in the Circle of Styleeee".

Everyone knows I've got a weakness for matching sets and suits. Even though this outfit is not really a suit, the pants immediately drew my attention and when I saw there was a similar trench coat that matched I just decided I would make it a suit. I love small details and additions that make a piece of clothing a little more special. It doesn't always have to be something fancy but just by adding some touches of black the items look much more interesting. I have mentioned before that I am a really big fan of ELVI, it's like they just know exactly what I like. The pieces are always of great quality and never disappoint. They really know how to bring classy, timeless, pieces.

As women I think we all possess special abilities, whether you're already a mom, spouse, or just a woman or girl, girl power is real y'all. For myself, as a mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, blogger, employee and many more things, juggling with all these roles can be a hassle every now and then. That's why sometimes, you just need a little cape to remind you your super woman, haha. And if it can be incorporated in a pretty dress, even better. Once again landing you two other titles: sexy and heroic ;)
Make sure to remind yourself every now and then that every thing you do is SUPER!

*in my rapping voice*
It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you... Without a few posts to go through... :)
Honestly, the past few weeks have been dreadful. I was super busy at work (since I'm not a full time blogger and I have bills to pay), I had a cold and flu that I couldn't seem to shake, and now, just as I was getting better, my cold decided to come back. But of course, I did not want to stay away forever! I have missed all of this! A positive development through all of this is something totally random but something I'm so excited about: if you have been paying attention, I've been trying to grow my hair out since around September last year. I have been completely dependant on my flat iron for over a decade and I landed in this vicious cycle where I wanted to have my natural curls back, but couldn't since my curl pattern was so sloppy and all over the place that I decided to straighten it again. This time I decided I was so done with all the heat damage and I have not straightened my hair for over 3 months. Even though my hair is no way near where it eventually needs to be, I already like the direction it's heading towards, as much has improved. And if you follow me on Instagram stories or Snapchat, you may have seen that last week, I took the step of getting my first ever Deva cut. It did mean I had to give up some of my length but it was dead and damaged hair anyways. Instantly after the cut my curls were already taking more shape and I can't wait to see what it will look like in 6 months time. Luckily my blog is also some sort of diary I can use to look back what it used to look like in order to track my progress. The only regret I have right now is not taking this step years ago. Well, can't make up for lost times I guess. To the ladies that are considering the same thing, DO IT! Don't wait!
Now, although I was writing about my hair, I haven't forgotten that this is a fashion blog first, so naturally, I'm throwing in an outfit as well ;)
