A few weeks ago I was featured in the fashion panel for Grazia magazine and now I'm in the new issue as well, so I thought I'd show you both. This week it's all about Sarah Jessica Parker's looks, which was fun to judge as she - and her alter ego Carrie - always get it right. Speaking of which, did you watch SATC 2 yet? And tell me, which SATC-girl are you: a Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte or Samantha? :P

The sun is out

When my friend Yvonne told me she was going to move from Amsterdam to Chicago for 5 months, I was slightly sad but very excited for her. And after a while I realised the bright sides like her access to Forever 21 ;) I stalked her for the sideways cross ring but it was sold out so fast. She's finally back in town with great stories and a little heart shaped surprise from Forever 21. How sweet!

Show time

I love knowing what comes in stores ahead of time and browsing through new collections. So when I was unable to make it to the H&M pressday because I was at my internship, I still really wanted to check out their fall collection. Last week I visited and you'll see my favorites soon. For now, here are two outfits I made in the showroom with a blazer, skirt, dress and bag from their new collection.

Going green

So my boyfriend and I went to shoot this outfit but I forgot to charge my batteries :P After literally two pictures it stopped, so I leave you with this. You'll be seeing more of me in this parka, I'm definately feeling the army jacket trend. How about you?

Sunday brunch

The girlfriend I had over for lunch is one of those people that loves vegetables. Me, I could have cheesecake for breakfast, brownies for lunch and Dorito's for dinner ;) (But I'm well behaved so I don't do that) We decided to make her grilled veggie sandwich. It's so good I had to share it with you (And I love an easy recipe). Would also be great with goat cheese or thin slices of chicken!

Something new

Minimarket wedge boots from My Wardobe - H&M dress - Zara bag - Wolford tights

I took this new dress out immediately when the weather was sunny last weekend, too bad it only lasted for a few days! Light pink is one of the colors that looks good on girls with fairly light skin like myself, so when I spotted this tunic dress I really wanted to take it home. It was quite the search and when I finally found the right size it really made my day.

ps. did you check out the my new advertiser Kymare? (see banner on the right) You'll find pieces from upcoming Dutch designer Kymare and clean, quality pieces by brands like Carin Wester (from Stockholm) and Joline Jolink (Dutch).

Style file: H&M fall

Collage by me with images from here

As you know, collections are always a season ahead so the H&M fall line is already in showrooms. And with so many strong, clean styles dominating the catwalks, a completely different look was bound to emerge. In the FW 10/11 collections and recent photoshoots I've been seeing nomad or folk inspired looks, but with an urban and modern twist. These looks are nonchalant, young and girly and still very put together.

H&M translates this trend like no other and their fall collection has a hippy vibe that took us back to Isabel Marant, Jean Paul Gaultier, Moschino, Vivienne Westwood and more. I'm feeling it, how about you?

Is it fall yet?

Spring has just kicked in and I love it. However, I'm already drooling over the new fall lines like this one from Elizabeth and James - by the Olsen twins. I think some of these looks could really work in spring though, so I don't care ;) This collection is inspiring to me because it's extremely wearable but not too plain and the colors really work. (Note to self: get more grey, mustard, olive and blue)
