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

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. :)

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 / 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!

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 / 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.

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!

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!

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!
