NEW IN / TOM FORD SUNNIES

Completely in love with my new sunnies from Tom Ford (found at SmartBuyGlasses). Lately I’m really in to big sunglasses, like my Celine shadow sunglasses. This Tom Ford beauty is a perfect addition to my collection. What do you think?

WEARING: ACNE STUDIOS ‘CONY’ BOOTS, GOOSECRAFT LEATHER TROUSERS, H&M TOP, ZARA BLAZER, MODE MUSTHAVES HAT, DUFFYBAG TOTE BAG (S/S2017)  

OUTFIT / CINEMA

WEARING: PRADA ‘CINEMA’ SUNGLASSES (VIA Edel-Optics), SEZANE ‘JOHNSON’ COAT, ZARA PATENT LEATHER TROUSERS AND KNITTED SWEATER WITH LOW V-NECK, KURT GEIGER OVER THE KNEE BOOTS, CHLOE FAYE BAG Eventhough the temperature is dropping quickly here in the Netherlands, I have to say that I don’t mind it one single bit. The cold fresh air is just what I need right now. And especially when the sun is shining, like last weekend, it’s just so nice to be outdoors (plus I get to wear my new Prada sunnies. Ha!). Can’t believe it’s only one more day before December! Time flies so fast, it’s just insane. Very excited for the Holidays though!! I have to restrain myself to not already buy a Christmas tree and decorate the house with all kinds of Christmas stuff. It’s my favourite time of the year, and I can’t wait to have a first (normal) Christmas with a healthy Enzo this time.    

WEARING / MARBLE CLUSE WATCH

Hello on my favourite Friday of the year: Black Friday. I mean, who doesn’t love shopping with a discount just because it’s Friday, right? I’m all for it. And speaking of favourites: today’s post is all about my latest obsessions: 1. black marble 2. golden details. 3. 1 and 2 in one. Before I was a huge silver lover, and never even wore golden jewelrey. But that have completely changed. So today I’m sharing a couple of my favourite golden items from this moment: like the Cluse La Roche watch, which have a golden case and not to mention that black marble dial. Loving it! Other favourites are – of course – my Chloe Faye bag, Prada sunnies with golden bridge, Mimi Et Toi golden necklace and the Balenciaga Derby boots. Looks all perfect together! PS: ONLY today you can order the Cluse La Roch watch with a  15% Black Friday discount! Get yours here and don’t forget to use their discountcode: CLUSExBF16

WEARING / BLACK IS MY HAPPY COLOR

WEARING: ZARA BLAZER AND DRESS, DUFFYBAG SUEDE TOTEBAG, RAY-BAN AVIATORS AND BALENCIAGA BOOTS Just a quick hello from the other side! Hope everyone is doing OK! Thank you for all the sweet and nice comments on my previous article, with the 14 outfits. Hopefully that made up a little for my unregular posting. Still love to shoot something every now and then, like the photos above that we took just before lunch at the College Hotel in Amsterdam. Too bad you can’t really see my super super awesome new Balenciaga boots! My latest shoe score! But you can find a better look at this outfit on my Instagram account (find it here). Anyway, wishing you all a happy Friday!

OUTFIT / SMILE

WEARING: AVELON FASHION BLOUSE, DENHAM LEATHER SKIRT, ADIDAS STAN SMITH SNEAKERS, ALEXANDER WANG BAG There really is no reason not to smile when the sun is shining and you’re touring around the city on your bike. Especially not when you’re doing it on this cool matte black one from VanMoof. I just love everything about this bike. The way it looks, and the way it makes me feel. I now rather choose to move around by bike when the weather is allowing it, it’s still Holland we’re talking about, instead of just always jump in my car. I just feel so much more alive with the wind in my hair and being outdoors! Thanks VanMoof for the amazing gift! PHOTOS BY DENISE PS: I’m giving away a pair of GIVENCHY sunnies on my Instagram, don’t forget to enter!

OUTFIT / SUPERSTARS

WEARING: ADIDAS SUPERSTAR SNEAKERS (VIA WINKELSTRAAT.NL), HM TREND DRESS, CHLOE FAYE CROSSBODY BAG Ever since Enzo came in to my life, I’m much more of a sneaker addict then a high heel kind of girl. Yup, kids sure change you. But running after Enzo is a lot easier when you’re not wearing 5 inch heels. Plus a new pair of white sneakers never hurt anyone, so I got the Adidas Superstar as well. And by sometimes pairing them up with a long dress I still feel a bit like the old me. :)

OUTFIT / FOR THOSE RAINY DAYS

WEARING: MUUBAA LEATHER TROUSERS, HM TREND BLOUSE AND COAT, CONVERSE SNEAKERS AND DUFFYBAG TOTE BAG
Not sure where the sun have been hiding this week, but it is raining non-stop over here. Rain, rain, go away!

OUTFIT / THE BOMBER JACKET

WEARING: GIVENCHY SUNNIES (VIA SMARTBUYSUNGLASSES) ZARA BOMBER JACKET, HM TREND DRESS, ALEXANDER WANG THIGH HIGH HEELS, CHLOE FAYE BAG In love with two things from this outfit: 1. the bomber 2. my new sunnies from Givenchy. I actually never wear round sunglasses, but wanted to try something new and absolutely love it! PS: Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram if you want a pair of Givenchy sunnies as well, because I’ve teamed up with SmartBuySunglasses for an awesome giveaway! Stay tuned!

OUTFIT / WIDE PANTS

WEARING: AVELON FASHION PADDED LEATHER JACKET, ZARA PANTS, CHLOE FAYE BAG, ISABEL MARANT BOOTS Wide pants don’t care! My hips sure don’t lie with these awesome pants from ZARA, but still love it. But what I love even more is my dreamy new leather padded jacket by Avelon Fashion!

OUTFIT / SNEAKERS

WEARING: GESTUZ LEATHER TRACK PANTS, HM TREND TOP, ZARA BLAZER, CHLOE FAYE BAG AND ADIDAS STAN SMITH SNEAKERS Feeling a bit like a tomboy in these photos… It’s definitely a different outfit that you are used to here on COTTDS.com. But, I do love wearing sneakers just as much as wearing high heels lately. Especially my white Stan Smith ones! Photos by Iris

OUTFIT / I’M STILL HERE

WEARING: HM TREND COAT, ZARA LONGSLEEVE TOP, MUUBAA LEATHER TROUSERS, HM DIVIDED HAT, SOPHIE HULME TOTE BAG AND ISABEL MARANT BOOTS Morning dear readers! Hopefully you haven’t forgotten about me already… It’s been a while since my last post here on COTTDS.com. But, I’m still very much alive! And I haven’t given up on this blog either. But being a mom is always my first priority and unfortunately we had some challenging months to deal with. Nevertheless, everything is going great again and we even got to celebrate Enzo’s first birthday! Time flies! PS: Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram from daily updates!

OUTFIT / SUNDAY MEETINGS

WEARING: H&M TREND OVERSIZED CARDIGAN, H&M T-SHIRT, MUUBAA LEATHER TROUSERS, ISABEL MARANT ANDREW ANKLE BOOTS, PS11 TINY BAG Nothing better than a big knit and a pair of leather trousers for Sunday meetings. But, I have to say I’m wearing this older leather pair from Muubaa lately on repeat. After not touching it for almost a year, it now leaves my closet almost every single week. It’s so funny how a forgotten item can be your most recent favourite… Photos thanks to Iris.

WEARING / WHEN IN BERLIN

WEARING: STREETONE BLOUSE, MUUBAA LEATHER TROUSERS, JILL SANDER CLUTCH AND ADIDAS STAN SMITH SNEAKERS A few weeks ago I was invited in Berlin by the German brand StreetOne for a fun design project. We met up for an inspiration workshop in the most beautiful loft. Together with Dutch colleague bloggers: Rosanne from Billie Rose, Noor from Queen of Jetlags and a few German Bloggers we’ve designed a cube that represent “The Shape of December“. Starting on the 7th of December you can bring out your vote on your favourite design. It will be amazing if you OF COURSE can vote for me! Haha. To get a glimpse of what we were doing in Berlin, check out the video underneath.    

WEARING / BETTER LATE

A few photos from my unpublished folder on my desktop. Shot these photos months ago for the blog, and forgot all about them. O, well. Better late than never… Enjoy your Sunday.

OUTFIT / RELOADING

WEARING: MANGO CAMEL COAT AND DESTROYED JEANS, H&M BASIC TEE, PS11 TINY BAG AND UGG MINI CLASSIC BOOTS
Took my new Mini boots for a little ride yesterday. After a super busy and hectic week, including a 24 hour trip to Berlin, I needed some fr…

OUTFIT / STOKKE ON THE GO #2

Time for part 2 from my collaboration with Stokke, using their Stokke Scoot stroller. This time for a hotspot with a different angle: shopping! But not for me, for Enzo. He is seriously making us bankrupt, I shop more for him than for myself. Stokke asked me to show you two of my favourite spots and I also wanted to share you one of my favourite stores in Amsterdam for Enzo. My #1 is the store called Big & Belg, but the store Keet in Huis is a little bit more hidden and that’s why I chose to share that one with you. It’s where I bought Enzo his crib, changing table, chair and his very first little outfits. They have all kind of cool stuff, and that’s what I love about this store. Where you can find them? KNSM-Laan 297. Have fun shopping!! PS: You can read all about my first hotspot in collaboration with Stokke here. (including a review about the Stokke Scoot)

LATELY ON MY FEED #9

I’ve visited some beautiful places last month during my trip to Croatia. And since we were so close to Italy we’ve also spend some time in Venice, such an amazing city! But vacation is over now and we’re back to reality…. Find me on Instagram @COTTDS

LIFE / STOKKE ON THE GO #1

A new collaboration is up and this time I’ve teamed up with Stokke to capture two of my hotspots in Holland. So, have you ever wondered how I start my weekend? Every Saturday morning you can find me in the Haarlemmermeerse Bos for a work out. Normally it’s for a bootcamp session, but this time I took Enzo with me in the Stokke Xplory stroller for a powerwalk training. Nothing beats a good sweat in the fresh air after a long and hectic week. After every work out I always stop by the restaurant Vork en Mes (which means fork and knife) for a cup of coffee. This restaurant is located at the Haarlemmermeerse Bos and uses organic ingredients which are mostly self-grown. Besides the amazing quality of the food the building is also just beautiful with the greatest view over the lake. It’s where I reload and enjoy some time for myself, while my mother is watching over Enzo. And even though I normally always pay Vork en Mes a visit without Enzo, it was nice to spend some quality time together at one of my personal favourite spots. So to all you fitgirls and momma’s I highly recommend you to visit Vork en Mes one day. WEARING: MUUBAA OVERSIZED LEATHER JACKET, FRONTROW JACKET, JOGHA JUNGLE TIGHTS, ADIDAS SNEAKERS AND RAYBAN SUNNIES ENZO WEARING: DUDES AND DOLLS PANTS, YOUNG ONE APPAREL (BOTH AVAILABLE AT THE COLOR BLUE.NL), CONVERSE SNEAKERS AND HM CARDIGAN REVIEW OF THE STOKKE XPLORY: Besides that I love the design of the Stokke Xplory it’s really practical too. By reversing the seat you turn the stroller in to a chair for your little one, that way you can make any restaurant or cafe child-friendly. It’s super easy to fold in and out and therefor easy to take with you anywhere you go.

WEARING / LUNCH DATE

LIFE / MORNING FROM CROATIA

MORNING! Love spending my morning at this Croatian home, which is such a peaceful space. A completely different vibe and style than my own home. I love waking up here and have my coffee on the balcony as the sun comes up. Truly the best way to sta…

OUTFIT / TO NEW BEGINNINGS

WEARING: ZARA BLAZER AND FLARE PANTS, ISABEL MARANT POINTY ANKLE BOOTS, RAYBAN AVIATORS AND DUFFYBAG X MINI TOTE BAG HELLO THERE! It’s been awhile since my last outfit post on COTTDS.com, or basically anything for that matter. Motherhood is a full time job, and since they grow up so fast I really wanted to take the time to enjoy my little one. (Who is not so little anymore, Enzo turned 6 months already last week!) And keeping up with a blog takes time and investment. The thing is, after years of working on COTTDS.com, I maintained a high standard for it’s quality. And I felt I couldn’t live up to that anymore. Everything needed to be done so quickly ever since Enzo came in to our lives. So, I decided to not post anything on the blog until I could live up to that standard again. Anyhow! I’m happy to kick off a new COTTDS with a cool new collaboration together with DUFFYBAG X MINI. Last weekend we shot a series of outfits with this super cool tote bag, and I’m eager to show you the rest very soon! Also a fun new collaboration where Enzo is starring is on it’s way! Here’s to new beginnings!

LATELY ON MY FEED

Eventhough it was a little bit quite around here for awhile, I did kept you guys in the loop of my life and my outfits on my Instagram feed. For those who have missed it, here’s a little recap of what I have been up to and of course what I have been wearing. :)

OUTFIT / FLARE

WEARING: ZARA BLACK FLARE JEANS AND SWEATER, ALL SAINTS LEATHER JACKET, ISABEL MARANT ANDREW BOOTS, PS11 TINY BAG, YSL SUNNIES

OUTFIT / IMPATIENT

WEARING: ISABEL MARANT POUR H&M OVERSIZED BLAZER, MUUBAA LEATHER TROUSERS, ZARA BLOUSE, ISABEL MARANT ANDREW BOOTS, ALEXANDER WANG BAG, FASHIONOLOGY JEWERY AND YSL SUNNIES And the waiting continues. Only 2 days before my due date and still nothing! Getting a little impatient over here…

OUTFIT / FAKING IT

WEARING: HM TREND TEDDY COAT AND TOP, HM MATERNITY JEANS, LEOPARD KURT GEIGER HEELS, SOPHIE HULME TOTE BAG AND YSL SUNNIES / 38 WEEKS I’m not going to fool anyone, these heels didn’t stay on for long. But, boy, did it feel good to wear some heels again and feel elegant for a change. Especially, after a week of staying in bed watching series like ‘Faking it’ or ‘Orange is the New Black’ for the entire day. Which is awesome too! But… I do miss getting dressed up (besides for my weekly check ups at the hospital).

OUTFIT / THE SUIT

WEARING: GESTUZ SUIT, HM TREND TOP, CONVERSE ALL STARS AND SOPHIE HULME TOTE BAG / 36 WEEKS Can you imagine how happy I was when I tried on this Gestuz suit and it fit? With only 3 weeks and 2 days to go until my due date. It felt like victory to me! I’m not saying I hate maternity clothes, but it’s not like you have loads of options. Or at least not for the kind of styles that I like. And this suit was perfect for a casual lunch in Amsterdam with my boyfriend. Exactly what I needed.

OUTFIT / OVERSIZED KNIT

WEARING: ISABELLA OLIVER LEATHER TROUSERS, ZARA TEE, H&M OVERSIZED KNITTED CARDIGAN, ISABEL MARANT POUR H&M FRINGE ANKLE BOOTS AND PS11 TINY BAG / 35 WEEKS Just an easy weekend look with my new comfy oversized knit from H&M.

OUTFITS / DECEMBER

This will probably be my last monthly recap on COTTDS.com for awhile. I think some of you already have noticed that I have been posting less outfits. I’m definitely trying my hardest to still keep up with my blog – and outfits – but it’s not getting easier now I have arrived in my 9 month pregnancy. The days are passing by so fast, especially for me, now I hardly have energy. Somewhere around 8/9 PM my day have come to and end and bedtime starts. Haha. I feel like such a grandma! But hey, we’re just keep on going. =)

OUTFIT / THE CAMEL COAT

WEARING: MANGO LONG CAMEL COAT, ALEXANDER WANG BOOTS, PS11 TINY BAG AND YSL SUNNIES / 34 WEEKS How can I not love this coat? It’s perfect! And a good change from all the black coats that I’m sporting normally. PS: How funny does my baby bump look on that third picture? My little boy is growing so much every single day. I still have 5 weeks (+3days) to go, I’m curious how I will look like by then…. :O

RECAP / OUTFIT FAVOURITES FROM 2014

A Little tradition we have here on COTTDS.com is the yearly outfit recap. Picked out my personal favourites from the over 100 looks I’ve posted in 2014. It have definitely been challenging to shoot my outfits for the blog the last 6 months. Starting in June when I had a positive pregnancy test. After that my whole world changed, I changed. Mentally but also physically. The physical changes were pretty intense in the beginning. The first 3 months I was extremely tired and I hardly had energy to blog (or anything else for that matter). At that time my baby bump also really started to show, which didn’t make it easy to take outfitshots without showing it.. After 4,5 (long) months I finally shared the amazing news with you, and I was able to show off that cute baby bump. My favourite accessory for sure! ;) It have been a life changing year for me. A dreamy and special year. And the fun part is that 2015 will be even greater. Can’t wait to meet my little man next month! PS: Curious to see the yearly recap of 2013? Check it out here.

OUTFIT / CONVERSE COMFY

WEARING: LILIJA LARIONOVA COAT, ISABELLA OLIVER MATERNITY LEATHER TROUSERS, HM TOP, WHITE CONVERSE ALL STARS SNEAKERS, PS11 TINY BAG AND ONLY SCARF / 33 WEEKS Currently so hooked on my Converse sneakers that Santa got me a white pair as well. Found these under the Christmas tree 2 weeks ago. They are so comfy to wear during my pregnany, the only downside is that I need assistance to get them on. Can’t even tie my own shoe laces anymore. haha.

OUTFIT / BACK ON MY FEET

WEARING: MUUBAA LEATHER JACKET, HM MATERNITY JEANS, ASOS T-SHIRT, PS11 TINY BAG AND ISABEL MARANT ANKLE BOOTS / 32 WEEKS HAPPY 2015, guys! Hope everyone had an amazing time during NYE. My end of 2014 was a little less exciting, spend the last days in bed with a flu. Yup, I was that lucky. But, I’m back on my feet again and my first outfit of 2015 – besides my pajamas – was this one. Decided that it was time to unleash these leopard ankle boot again, since they have been spending a lot of time in their shoe box lately.

OUTFIT / THE DARK SIDE

WEARING: LILIJA LARIONOVA OVERSIZED COAT, ISABELLA OLIVER LEATHER TROUSERS, GIVENCHY TEE, PS11 TINY BAG, KURT GEIGER HEELS / 31 WEEKS

OUTFIT / LAST ONE

WEARING: GESTUZ COAT, MUUBAA LEATHER TROUSERS, ALEXANDER WANG HEELS AND PS11 TINY BAG / 23 WEEKS No worries, shot this look in October when it was still OK to wear strappy sandals outside. With a warm coat on top to compensate a little of course. ;) Finally, I’m through my looks that I shot up front. It’s time to shoot more previous ones!

OUTFIT / I’M HOOKED

WEARING: ISABEL MARANT POUR H&M OVERSIZED COAT, ISABELLA OLIVER (MATERNITY) LEATHER LEGGINGS, ISABEL MARANT ‘TACY’ BOOTS, PS11 TINY BAG / 29 WEEKS I’m pretty hooked on my leather maternity leggings from Isabella Oliver. I seriously don’t know how I would have survived this maternity clothing-thing if I didn’t had these. I just need – at least! – one pair of black leather trousers in my wardrobe.

OUTFIT / THE FULL LOOK

WEARING: ZARA JUMPSUIT, MUUBAA LEATHER JACKET (find it here or here), KURT GEIGER LEOPARD HEELS (find it here) AND PS11 TINY BAG (find it here and here) / 23 WEEKS A couple of weeks ago I already showed you a preview of this look with my new oversized leather jacket. And here we have the full outfit. These photos just remind me again, how perfect this jacket is. Can you tell I’m in love?

OUTFITS / NOVEMBER

And just like that we have landed in the last month of the year ALREADY. Why is time always flying so fast? Which also means I’m starting to get really close to my due date. I can’t wait to meet the little guy that’s growing inside of me, but it’s also becoming a bit scary now it’s all going so fast! Just two more months before my new life is kicking off. Can’t wait!

OUTFIT / A FRESH PAIR

WEARING: CONVERSE ALL STARS SNEAKERS, H&M TREND BOMBER JACKET, ISABELLA OLIVER (MATERNITY) LEATHER TROUSERS, ONLY SCARF AND PS11 TINY BAG / 28 WEEKS Got myself a fresh pair of black low Converse All Stars sneakers. Maybe Definitely not my warmest shoe pair, but absolutely my most comfiest. No unnecessary luxury when you’re 28 weeks pregnant. ;)

OUTFIT / 23

WEARING: HM OVERSIZED BLAZER, MUUBAA LEATHER TROUSERS, ISABEL MARANT ANDREW BOOTS AND PS11 MINI / 23 WEEKS I’m kind of happy that I shot so many looks up front, the cold is just insane. No way I will voluntarily stay outside longer than 5 seconds. Brrr!

OUTFIT / A NEW FAVOURITE

WEARING: ZARA LONG KNITTED CARDIGAN, H&M TURTLENECK, H&M MATERNITY JEANS, KURT GEIGER HEELS AND SOPHIE HULME TOTE BAG / 27 WEEKS

OUTFIT / NOT MUCH TO SAY

WEARING: GESTUZ PANTS, HM TREND CAMI TOP, HM OVERSIZED BLAZER, ZARA LEOPARD HEELS, JILL SANDER CLUTCH / 16 WEEKS There really isn’t much to say about this outfit. Besides, it looked so much better in real life (or at least I hope it did). Maybe there are just too many oversized items going on here in 1 outfit. I blame the secret baby bump! But still, it did looked OK when I was wearing this 10 weeks ago. Anyway, sharing this outfit on the blog even though I would rather not. haha. You can not always be on top of your game, right?

OUTFIT / ON HOLD

WEARING: ZARA LEATHER JACKET AND RIPPED JEANS, PRIMARK BLOUSE, ISABEL MARANT ‘ANDREW’ BOOTS AND PS11 TINY BAG The baby bump haven’t disappeared, don’t you worry, these photos are just very old. Took them when I was about 13 weeks pregnant, but decided not to publish these until the word was out. In these photos you can definitely tell that my body was already changing, and during that period I felt a bit insecure about my mini bump. I mean, if you see me now, you can definitely tell that I’m pregnant. But in the first 16 weeks or so you could easily think that I just had eaten too many burgers. (haha)

OUTFIT / THE YEAR AFTER

WEARING: ISABEL MARANT POUR HM OVERSIZED BLAZER, HM TREND LEGGING, ALEXANDER WANG SOFIA THIGH HIGH BOOTS, ZARA TEE AND PS11 MINI / 23 WEEKS
Pretty addicted to this oversized blazer coat at the moment. I have been wearing it almost every single da…

OUTFIT / LAST TIME

WEARING: MUUBAA LEATHER TROUSERS, ZARA TEE AND JACKET, ISABEL MARANT ‘TACY’ BOOTS, PS11 BAG AND WEEKDAY SCARF / 23 WEEKS It’s time to say goodbye to my all time favourite leather trousers for awhile. The bump is getting to big! Really need to do some research on maternity clothing/labels (anyone?). I did already got spoiled by ASOS Maternity with a some super cool black ripped skinny jeans and by the maternity label Isabella Oliver with a pair of leather leggings (stunning!) to get started.

OUTFITS / OCTOBER

So, my October outfits were all about showing off the baby bump. One that have growed big time the last few weeks. I officially had to say goodbye to all my jeans and leather trousers (accept for one pair!), since I simply can’t fit in to them anymore. Not cool! But hey, it’s for a good cause.

OUTFIT / CHECK

WEARING: H&M BLOUSE AND OVERSIZED BLAZER, MUUBAA LEATHER TROUSERS, ALEXANDER WANG STRAPPY HEELS AND PS11 TINY BAG And, again, a look that I took a few weeks ago. When it was still acceptable to wear open heels outside. Now? Not such a good idea. (freezing!) I feel like I’m a bit behind on my blogging, it’s quite challenging to keep up with my normal life nowaways. Maybe it’s just time to face the fact that I’m pregnant haha.

OUTFIT / BETTER LATE

WEARING: GESTUZ LEATHER TRACK TROUSERS, HM TREND TANK TOP, PRIMARK DENIM BLOUSE, ALEXANDER WANG ‘FABIANA’ HEELS AND PS11 MINI / 19 WEEKS Oops. This shoot is already from 5 weeks ago, but completely forgot to publish it. But better late than never, right?

OUTFIT / NEGLECTED

WEARING: ALEXANDER WANG ‘SOFIA’ BOOTS, ZARA JUMPSUIT, HM OVERSIZED BLAZER, PS11 TINY BAG, FASHIONOLOGY JEWELERY / 23 WEEKS These boots are absolutely my favourite shoes at the moment. Funny, since I have been neglecting them quite a bit. Must be the pregnancy, which forces me to see my wardrobe in a whole new light. But hey, they are back!

IN THE MORNING GLOW

A moment worth capturing! Pretty Amsterdam. <3

OUTFIT / WANG

WEARING: ALEXANDER WANG ‘LYS’ BOOTS, ZARA LINGERIE SHORTS, HM TREND TRENCH AND TANK TOP, PS11 MINI / 19 WEEKS Definitely not an outfit I was wearing this week. Way too cold! Shot this outfit a few weeks ago with my new Alexander Wang ‘Lys’ boots.

OUTFIT / PALLADIUM

I think it’s about 15 years ago when I was rocking my Palladium Pampa boots to highschool. All the cool girls were wearing them that school year, so of course I had to have my own pair as well. Such a trendsetter (haha!). After that hype I kind of forgot all about Palladium. Until now. Because they are back! And with an awesome worldwide campaign. Of course Amsterdam is represent as well. In this #ExploreYourCity video you will discover places in Amsterdam that only the insiders know. So put on your Palladium boots and go exploring!

7 X FROM WHERE I STAND

And here we have a new #fromwhereistand again. Starring my new Alexander Wang heels! Still have to share the full look of this #fromwhereistand shot on the blog though, will publish it next week. :) Hopefully the weather continue to surprise us …

WEARING / UNPUBLISHED

A previous outfit that I had to shoot with a big clutch in front of my baby bump (16 weeks). But since, we don’t have any secrets for each other any more… ;) So sad I don’t fit in to this leather skirt anymore. Luckily for me there is a new black leather pencil skirt on the way, especially for the preggies! Feels so much better to be able to breathe in my bottoms haha. Enjoy your Saturday!

OUTFIT / FLASHBACK

WEARING: FRENCH CONNECTION DRESS, HM OVERSIZED BLAZER, ISABEL MARANT TWO TONED KNEE BOOTS AND PS11 TINY BAG / 16 WEEKS A little flashback to 5 weeks ago when I was 16 weeks pregnant, but when I couldn’t share this outfit yet. I decided to shoot this look anyway so I could show it to guys after the big announcement. And there is moreeeee!

OUTFIT / NEW COAT

WEARING: GESTUZ COAT, THIGH HIGHT ALEXANDER WANG ‘SOFIA’ BOOTS, JILL SANDER CLUTCH, FASHIONOLOGY JEWELRY / 19 WEEKS Fall/Winter I’m ready for you! Love this coat from Gestuz. And it has the perfect length to pair with my boots from Alexander Wang. Great fit!

OUTFIT / THE TRENCH

WEARING: MUUBAA LEATHER TROUSERS, HM TREND TRENCH COAT AND TANK TOP, JILL SANDER CLUTCH AND KURT GEIGER LEOPARD HEELS / 19 WEEKS Don’t know if you guys had noticed that this Jill Sander clutch was one of my favourites ways to hide my pregnancy – by positioning the clutch in front of the bump. haha. It feels so good to not have to hide it any longer! And I’m SO happy that I still fit in to these Muubaa leather trousers, which were actually a bit too big at the waist before.

LAST MONTH

Let me first begin with saying: WOW! Thank you sooooo much for all the congratulations on my pregnancy! It’s amazing and overwhelming to read all those sweet comments here, but also on my Instagram account. Your support means the world to me! I’m super excited to now show you some of the looks I have been pre-shooting – showing off my baby bump. I will publish those in the upcoming days/weeks! So stay tuned :) Again, many many many thanks! You guys are the best!!!
