Silver kind of girl

I was looking for a nice silver nailpolish for a while now, when I found the perfect one at a Dutch drug store (Kruidvat)! It's by 'Gosh' and it will set you back only  around 6 euro. When I bought mine, they had a special 2 for 1 offer, that's why I took the gold one too. I like it also, but not as much as the silver one though - the gold one could be more 'shiny' in my opinion. What do you prefer, golden or silver nails?

Minty fresh

Today I decided to throw on my mint-colored, vintage jacket, that I actually bought a while ago, but wore only once until now. In fact, my day had kind of a 'bad' start, when my perfume bottle just slipped out of my hands and shattered into a million pieces on the bathroom floor. Could have known this was going to happen to me, I'm kind of a 'dropper' (for those of you who have watched Friends!) - the plus side is my room smells nice now - though at times the smell becomes slightly overwhelming haha!

Summer in the City

This summer I bought a disposable camera- for the first time again in like forever. And I forgot how much fun it is not to know how you're photos are going to turn out! I just threw it in my bag and snapped some pictures whenever I was doing something fun - like a picnic, a sunday-morning breakfast outside, having the most delicious icecream (I do realise now that all of these things include food, haha!), or having breakfast (there's the food again!) with Kim, who can be spotted with a big-ass croissant!!
Anyhow, it was such a fun experience,I was so excited when I could finally pick up the photos at the store! And I quite like the 'old, and not so perfect' atmosphere they have! Definitely going to do this more often! 
Now I only need to buy lots of white frames (or vintage frames that I can paint white myself) for them!

A lil' like Chloé

Last week, while thrift shopping, I found this blouse which reminded me of Chloé's famous spring 2009 RTW collection, which I absolutely LOVED. So you can imagine my happiness when finding it, and especially upon discovering its 2 euro pricetag! After spending the weekend working and spending some time with my boyfriend (we watched Kick-Ass, such a fun movie!!!), I'm now off to work on my thesis - aka 'the neverending story'!

I'm packing my suitcase now, because tomorrow I'll leave to the south of France! I'm going with a friend and we will travel from campingsite to campingsite by bike, so it is a bit hard to figure out what clothes to pack! It needs to be comfortable on a bike, but I also want to look a little fashionable ;-). I'm definitely not packing convertible pants, but I MIGHT be packing hiking sandals...
See you in a week!

So here's my take on the turban-trend, I wasn't able to make a real one (maybe youtube could help out), but also I think this is a lot more wearable for everyday life. It will be very usefull on my vacation next week, because I'll be spending all my days on a bike and I want to avoid a sunstroke ;-)

Here is what I wore today. It is a very simple outfit but I like the contrast between black and white. I'm spending most of the day at home so I'm not wearing any shoes ;-)
The dress and sunglasses are from H&M and the White tee is from Vanilia.

I'm only happy when it rains

Here is just a quick picture I took of what I wore yesterday. In summer I never know what to wear, I simply don't have much summery clothes. So every morning I spend a lot of time in front of my closet, not knowing what to pick. I never have that problem in fall/winter, I can't wait to wear layers and jackets again! But for now I'll have to get through these hot days with the few summery dresses and shorts that I own. Luckily I'm spending most of my days in the airconditioned library writing my thesis ;-)

Also, as requested, here is a swatch of the minty green nailpolish. It's from Catrice and it's called Sold Out Forever (which it actually is).

Chicken Salad

The best thing to eat in this hot weather is a fresh salad, especially when it includes some lovely chicken!

 I just wanted to quickly show you my new nailpolishes. I love these pastel colors, which make me think of Italian icecream in pistacchio, chocolate and blood orange ;-)

New Favorites

Necklace from Vanilia

Mango shorts, love the detailing on this one, i.e. the slit in the back and the leather finishing.

Do you also want to wear new clothes as quickly as possible? Quite a problem if you buy things that don't match haha. Everytime I get something new it becomes my next favorite item. Right now I'm very happy with my new acquisitions, especially with the Mango shorts. I already saw them three weeks ago, but now I could finally go buy them.

zara blouse, sorry for posting the most crappy picture ever!

This dish is so simple and quick, but so delicious, I always make it when I don't feel like spending to much time in the kitchen. You just need some tortellini, fresh tomatoes, parmesan cheese and basil, and a spoonful of crème fraiche, some salt and pepper and that's it!

And after that, I had the perfect dessert: fresh strawberries :-)
