In between exams, this baby came into my life. A little gift for myself. Navy blue, golden details...

I added another earring on the right side (3 now) and on the left side it's 2 (and counting?)
But for it to become an actual earparty, you need some party gear.
I got these pretty silver earrings from Noosa Amsterdam. Behind every item they sell is a good story.
The pattern of these earrings was inspired by Mandala, drawn by Tibetan Buddhists.
Noosa Amsterdam is all about fair trade, about making the world a better place, and about feeling and being pretty on the in- and outside. How's that for positive vibes?
They have these in silver with a gold detail and all gold as well, go check them out!

Whether you wear it to work with a blazer on top, or casually tucked in a jeans when going out for lunch, the white shirt is just there. It's one of those '5 piece French wardrobe'-items: the key is to invest in a real nice one, one that will be pretty five years from now, hell, ten years from now!
My white shirt is from GANT. It has the perfect boyfriend fit and it's made out of the softest fabric.
GANT has a great selection of white shirts: some classic pieces, but also real nice casual ones.
Today I combined the white shirt with my new 'knot' skirt and it turned out quite the girly look, but it can easily be styled with a good pair of jeans and your favorite leather jacket as well.
A piece of advice to myself: use a flatiron. But I guess I'm not the type for neatly ironed shirts (or skirts, as you can see) because I know I would get it all crinkly within seconds.
But cheers to crinkles! And to white shirts! Have a great Thursday.

At least, let's hope so. Because here in Amsterdam an occasional downpour is the order of the day, but I have faith.
After all, it's the first day of June today!
A few weeks ago I was in my bikini all day everyday, and it felt so good.
At the moment my days are all filled up with work and studying, but my mind is already in Sicily, which is where I will be going in August. And I might just need a new bikini for Sicily, or two.
While hunting on the one and only World Wide Web, I found a few nice bikini's on Otto.nl, and so it happens they have a 20% discount on all swim- and beachwear at the moment!
I think I'm going for a print this season, but you can also never go wrong with some mixing & matching! What about you?
Keep in mind: A bikini a day keeps the doctor away!

Last week, I really was island bound. I never wanted to leave.
I'm back in Amsterdam for almost a week now, and I still want to go back.
Two weeks there and I'm already considered staying: mom, dad: I'm not coming home for a while. But yeah, life knocked on my door, and now it's back to reality.
This look was shot at the end of the day, when the sun was almost setting. That time of the day the light is the most beautiful. Oh, and there is happy hour, that too.
I'm wearing a striped top and suedette suspender from Yoins, both new in. Stripes are always a good idea, and this overall is my best buddy this summer.
The espadrilles are from Meyba. They are the most comfortable, and easy to style. You can still win a pair (or any pair from their collection) by entering the Meyba giveaway here.
And btw, this is a new Daniel Wellington watch, you can get your own with 15% off using discount code 'Vanilla&Velvet'
What do you think about this look?
I'm very into stripes and very into overalls at the moment, so this was actually a great combo for me. A little hot though, I have to admit. But who cares, minutes after I was watching the sunset, sipping on a Cosmopolitan.
