Hello heat wave!

As the temperature goes up, so does my craving for loose fits and comfort. I'm in this new jumpsuit non stop and the worries I have when riding my bicycle in a short skirt are gone, how relaxing! I wore it to a huge festival last weekend and the Dixie toilet stops took me forever, hahah!

Cupcake wonderland

I can never resist writing with candy letters

Elisah and me

The table of yesterday's high tea was stuffed with so much bright colored sweetness, I could feel the sugar rush just by looking at it. Death by cupcakes! All the sweetness and champagne (thanks to Monki) was the perfect beginning of what will be a great summer weekend.

Jump around

Jumpsuits never go out of style - just like leather jackets, breton stripes and wedges, to name a few - and are one of my favorite items year round. (Too bad I can hardly ever find one!) A ditsy printed romper can perfectly be cinched in at the waist and paired with wedges and a cardi for daytime. And when the sun has set, all you need to pile on is a clutch, heels, a big necklace and a boyfriend blazer.
I've listed some jumpsuits that I came across online. The best budget proof buys are available at Asos, Topshop and Forever 21. It's time to jump around!

Amsterdam welcomes: Monki

Monki pants - H&M floral blouse - Zara heels

This August, it's Monki business in Amsterdam. I've long been an admirer of this affordable scandinavian brand so I was thrilled to hear it's opening a store in my lovely city. Since the on screen experience is not quite the real deal, I recently visited the Spice PR showroom to feel and try on some of the clothes. I took home this lavender / grey pair of pants and love the versatility of it.

And if you're as fond of Monki as I am, this might be interesting: Monki is still searching for a store manager. Could that be you? Send your application to sabrina.kellermann@monkiworld.com

ps. Excuse the familiar background :) I'm interning at a magazine and don't get home until around six thirty. Then it's grocery shopping, cooking, eating and that leaves little time for scouting a great photo location :P

Dancing around in my new fringe top from online store StyleSofia wich is a great match with this h&m skirt. I love clothes that move when you twirl! Going out in the evening and I'm looking forward to it. Will you be on the dancefloor tonight as well?

ps. can you tell my hair is shorter? I really noticed that in my previous outfit post. But it was much needed and feels great now!

Hanging out

A quick look at my new dresses from Ready to Fish, a thin suede peach T-dress and a low back navy dress. (The chandelier was in front of my closet so I thought I might as well use it as a prop to hang the dresses on ;))

Goodbye twenty

I love lazy outfits on Sunday and wore this yesterday on my last evening as a twenty-year old. Yes, that's right. It's my 21st BIRTHDAY TODAY! Karl, if you read this; a Chanel 2.55 with silver hardwear would do. But seriously, 21! Not many years have been as exciting as this one and partly that's because of you, sweet readers :) Big kiss to you from the birthday girl!

Ready to Fish ?

Yesterday I threw out my fishing rod at Ready to Fish on Prinsengracht 581. The catch? Two amazing dresses, one in peach and a verrry sexy royal blue one with a low back. It's my birthday in 5 days (June 7th) so I'm saving them for the date and will be wearing one out to dinner.

Definately go check out the Ready to Fish store when you're around, because Ilja designs great basics with a twist, that you can easily mingle with your wardrobe and that are worth the investment. And the girls that work there are welcoming you for coffee or tea at their tiny bar. Thanks to them for making my day start out great!
wearing: h&m big shoulder dress and lace up boots.
