MY VERY FIRST SUIT!

Foto 10-04-15 19 06 32

You guys, how smoothly am I adding a chic to my casual lately? Earlier this week I have been spamming your computers and phones with the most royal-worthy enchanting princess skirt ever and today I am presenting you no less than a SUIT! No worries, the days of denim are never over, but I must admit that since I started doing Kayla and since I started being extra happy with myself I have been obsessively trying on other kinds of fabrics to decorate my legs with. It feels extremely liberating to finally have more options to choose from pants-wise, so YEP my summer wardrobe is going to be all about comfy pyjama and palazzo pants. And why not start with a suit? A real suit.

Ever since I saw AfterDRK's Sabrina showing off her enviable Maison Martin Margiela suit, I wanted one of my own as well. There is something so mature, sexy and chic but also playful and laid-back to a two-piece like that, and that's exactly the style I'm aiming for. To make it even more playful, my first suit turned out not be a classic black one but an eye-catching floral one! When exactly was the last time you saw me wearing florals? Probably here in 2012. So, this soft Comptoir des Cotonniers suit managed to win my heart and received a prominent spot in my closet. I have worn it a couple of times already, but this simple laid-back combination has been my favourite so far!

What do you think? Do you have a suit, or would you like one as well?

H&M CONSCIOUS EXCLUSIVE: THE SKIRT

Uh oh... I already have so many reasons to be envious of the drop dead gorgeous and extremely charming Olivia Wilde, and yesterday evening I found yet another one. The lady did not only contribute to a beautiful sustainable collection by H&M Conscious Exclusive, she also got to wear the most prominent piece of it: this flowy skirt. The skirt of my dreams. It is made of organic linen and recycled polyester and has an amazing texture. Call it true love, un coup de foudre or just plain shallowness: when I saw it flowing by on the catwalk, I knew I needed it! I tried it on for over three times and although it looked absolutely magical on me, my common sense took over and I didn't buy it. Which I obviously regret now. What do you say guys; should I go look for it in store or just stay away from it as far as possible? Yay or nay?

SPORTY SPICE

There is a first time for everything and since I have been a regular gym-visitor for months now, I thought it was time to finally shoot some sportswear! I have written about my favourite gym exercises as a Belmodo Guest Editor before, but in the meantime my fitness routine has been upgraded to a whole different level. Things got harder, faster and a lot stronger. Yep, my friend and I are members of Kayla's army now! The hashtag #deathbykayla is now applicable for us on a daily base, since we have just commenced week 8 of Kayla's incredible 12 week bikini guide

NEW IN: SACHA EST 1909 KICKS

_MG_8675 _MG_8667

What girl can resist a good pair of shoes? Especially if they are white, sneaker-shaped and have a touch of copper, am I right? These stunning babies from Sacha's new est. 1909 sneaker collection have joined my shoe family only recently but they have been glued to my feet ever since. Yes, they are obviously inspired on the famous Stan Smiths, but not only are they a lot more comfortable (most of my friends' ankles are standardly covered in blood when wearing Stans), they also have these wicked copper details that still makes them unique. You'll most definitely see these a lot in my outfits and posts this season. What do you say? Liking them? Shop them here too!
