Colourful pants: how to match and style a camel jeans

Building your outfit around a coloured center piece such as a pants can sometimes be tricky. I’ve often stood before my closet and felt like I didn’t have the right top to match with my colourful pants as it quickly gets ‘too much’. It doesn’t have to be tricky though. I’ve recently bought a colourful pants in a camel colour that I love to match and style with different pieces. Although fashion is about expressing your own personal style I do have some tips on how to style coloured jeans.

1. neutral tones

Ted Baker pink beauty bag gift set

I decided to treat myself with a nice pink beauty bag gift set from Ted Baker. Ted Baker is a UK-based brand that has some beautiful beauty products as well as fashion items including clothing and handbags. I love the brand because of the beautiful designs and packaging. I think packaging really adds something to the product and can just make it a lot more appealing. Although their clothing items are not something I would consider acceptable for my budget, I must admit I have a weakness for their beauty products and their typical bow shopping bags.

This pink beauty bag gift set comes with a beautiful case with a very pretty floral pattern. The outside of the case has a smooth fabric which gives… Read More

Outfit details of the week

Ladies, it’s 2017! I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. It will be a year of big changes for sure, and I’ll take you with me along my journey. Today I have some outfit details of the week for you. I like putting outfits together and making pictures of them. On days when I don’t know what to wear I can easily scroll through my instagram and see what outfit I can wear that day.

Monday I felt like wearing something casual but in a way dressed up at the same time. I went for this collared shirt with a grey pattern. I love the detailing of the pattern, it’s subtle but at the same time noticeable. The shirt has a white… Read More

Arm Candy – pearl marble watch & bracelet

I’m loving this arm candy from Aliexpress. The watch reminds me a bit of Kate Spade watches because of the heart detail (although with Kate Spade it’s obviously a spade icon). I chose my watch in rosegold but it’s also available in gold and silver. The watch has a beautiful pearl marble effect that reflects nicely in different shades of light. It’s suble but still noticeable in just the right way.

The watch does come a little big but I got myself a watch adjuster (very cheap) which makes it possible to remove parts of the band of the watch to make it fit your wrist. This way you are saving some money and a trip to the jewelry store!

With the rosegold watch I… Read More

Outfit of the day: December 18th

Today I went for a casual outfit. Black trousers with a subtle faux leather look. I simply love the edgy look of faux leather and it makes my outfit just that little more interesting! On top of that I wore a black and white striped top, one of my recent purchases from Pimkie. The blouse has a nice detail on the neckline and is embellished with rhinestones. This way you don’t even have to look for a matching necklace. The shoes are from Sac d’Anvers in Ghent.

I must admit I haven’t been shopping for clothes in a while. I haven’t been feeling so great lately because I’ve gained a lot of weight since I started working. Although I still fit my clothes, sadly the weighing… Read More

You are never fully dressed without perfume – Jean d’Arcel Incarnation n°8

Perfume, it’s something I have great difficulty choosing. When I walk into a perfume store I’m always so overwhelmed by all the different scents that it’s very hard for me to determine which scent I’m actually smelling and whether I like it or not. Therefore it’s always a ‘chore’ for me to go perfume shopping. I do have a preference for sweet and floral scents that aren’t too harsh or overpowering. But when do you come to the point where it becomes overpowering? No one really knows unless they wear the scent for a while or smell it on someone else. That’s how I came to the Jean d’Arcel brand.

I bought myself the Jean d’Arcel Incarnation n°8 Eau De Parfum. I’ve never heard of the… Read More

Cluse watch

I like to make wishlists so I can gradually cross off things on my list. It’s always exciting to get something you’ve wanted for a very long time. For my birthday I also made a wishlist and I got this beautiful Cluse watch! The making of lists backfired on me a little though since I received the same watch twice as a birthday present. Since I can only use one I’m selling my second one.

I got the rosegold minuit Mesh watch in black. I just loved the contrast of the black and rosegold together. It has a very classic and basic design which makes it a match with just about any outfit. The lovely thing about the Cluse watches is that you can mix and… Read More

My latest purchases from Aliexpress

Recently I’ve been shopping on Aliexpress now and then. I’ll warn everyone already, you’ll probably see a lot of upcoming future posts featuring Aliexpress items. Usually I tend to stick with buying accessories since they are very inexpensive and it’s not something that requires a certain size. Though I must admit that I’m tempted to try out some of their clothes. If anyone has some experience with that let me know!

Where some time ago I was totally into big statement necklaces (I still like them), lately I’ve been drawn to dainty layered necklaces. These pieces are so easy to combine with any different outfit and just give that ‘added touch’ to your look. Naturally I went a little overboard with orderering a whole bunch… Read More
