The denim skirt
Denim skirts are hot hot hot at the moment. Get it in blue, get it in black, or maybe, when in the mood for it, get it in patchwork.
I'm into the ones with the big pockets and buttons up front, but also the old school frayed ones I so cool! Decisions, decisions..
If you want to go through summer all casual nonchy-looking: denim skirts are the way to go!
Otto.nl has many more skirts like this one by the way, to get your ass summer proof!

Midi or mini, both ways work in my opinion. Preferably with a pair of white kicks.
The way I see it: a blue pleated skirt (always blue), white Stan's, a grey t-shirt tucked in - or an oversized sweater, if it were up to the Dutch weather - and my darkblue Furla bag to top things off. Looking like a million bucks without that much effort. I one day like to call that my mantra ;)

Absolutely perfect for festival-season: the suede skirt. Can be quite the investment if you decide to go for real leather, but nowadays there are some real nice ones made out of real leather which don't cost your month's salary, at Zara for example. Budget proof are the suedette skirts the non-leather ones: those can also look quite good! Go for a lace-up while you're at it, style it with a vintage rock & roll shirt, add some boots and you are literally ready to kick summer's ass.

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!
