A Fishtail for a Stress Head

Skirt - Brandy Melville
Blouse - Zara 

Things are getting a bit hectic again as we approach the exam week, the only thing between me and the christmas holiday. (Yippee!) When life gets busy there's no better combo than braids (I prefer fishtail) and dry shampoo when it comes to managing, not a bed head, but what I call a 'stress head'. 
As you may notice, I've been getting into skirts lately. I don't know what's gotten into me but I find them so irresistibly cute. Too bad the temperature is dropping as we speak.
Today I'll take a break from studying though because I'm going to go see Sam Smith in Utrecht. I am beyond excited! Have a great weekend.


Recreating Clueless

Coat and Shoes - River Island | Skirt - Subdued | Top - Brandy Melville | Socks -Urban Outfitters

I reckon that the greatest fashion advice of this winter can be found from Clueless. Just like last year, a big wool coat is a must. Also I have spied cute little plaid skirts popping into various clothing stores. As it's cold, stockings and/or high knees are essential. For us fashion geeks it's just more to play with. I'm very traditional when it comes to stockings-- I always buy black. My mission for this winter is to experiment with other colors as well. For example, I have a vision of a perfect pair of thin grey stockings. (Grey IS a color, okay...)

Citea - My new favorite tea shop/cafe in Amsterdam!

 Enjoy and embrace the new week!


Aiming for Success


Bag - H&M | Coat - Only | Pants - Bik Bok | Shoes - F21

Wohoo, it's finally cold enough to wear a legit coat. If you have read my blog then you probably have noticed that this coat is an old one. I can't believe I still love it as if it was new. It just goes with so many things. This time I paired it with dress pants-- my most current obsession. Wearing them makes me feel like I earn at least four zeros in my paycheck. It gives me motivation to earn those zeros in the future. The only way to get there is by pushing yourself to work hard- the exact reason why I have been spending hours in the library. I recently received the results of my first period: 8/10. The score is well above average but as a perfectionist I still see room for improvement. I heard that this second period will be the hardest of this year. I can't wait to see how far I can push myself this time. In the meantime I will keep obsessing about those dress pants.


A Pink Furry Dream


Bag- H&M | Blouse - H&M | Fur coat - A small shop on Leidsestraat (Amsterdam)

I was walking on Leidsestraat in Amsterdam when I saw a mind blowing announcement in the window of a small store: 20% off from all clothes. I swear my vision went white for a second from all the endorphins and adrealine as I stormed into the store and grabbed that pink dream. The next day in Maastricht I wore it with pride, paired with my favorite blouse that I got for very cheap as well from H&M and from there everything went down as my crazy shopping spree began. To be honest, I blame my friends who came to visit as I wanted to take them to shops but ended up being the one to do the most shopping. The next days of the month I had to stretch every cent but it was so goddamn worth it.


P.s. The inside of the jacket is pink silky material, which justifies everything because it feels like heaven on skin.
