WEARING RIGHT: MANGO JUMPSUIT, ALEXANDER WANG FABIANA STRAPPY HEELS, CHLOE FAYE BAG Today I have the honour to speak at a new summer event: Share A Perfect Day in Holland and share some of my styling secrets. For my presentation I picked the theme: travelling. How to pack lighter, smarter and more efficiently. You can’t have too many tips and tricks when it comes to packing, right? During Fashion Week season, or any other time when  I had to pack my bag, the seams of my suitcase always look if they were about to burst. And even when I could manage to close the damn thing, the weight exceeded the maximum weight. And so, the downsizing began and so did the headache. Time for a change! I created a way to pack my bag as efficiently possible:  the 14 days, 14 ways plan. So, how does that work? I will tell you… In this case I picked 7 winter/fall items and 7 spring/summer items from my closet (yes, that includes shoes!). Why, because I want to be prepared for any kind of weather. I’ve choosen neutral colored items so that each item will be interchangeable and will match the others. You might need an hour (or two) to mix&match but I can assure you, it’s really worth the effort. Another huge advantage is you always know what to wear, so you can save yourself some time with sorting out outfits in an overfull and chaotic suitcase during your Holiday! So, from now on: keep calm and start packing! PS: In collaboration with bagageonline.nl, you can use the discountcode COTTDS to receive 10% off your SuitSuit suitcase.    

OUTFIT / HIT THE ROAD

WEARING: GESTUZ SUIT, ALEXANDER WANG HEELS, RAYBAN AVIATOR SUNGLASSES AND DUFFYBAG X MINI TOTE BAG
After a long road trip we finally arrived in the beautiful Croatia. Our very first family Holiday! It feels so good to break the pattern of normal l…

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 / 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?
