Summer guide

I'm not sure whether summer-girl is an existing word, but if it is, I'm definitely it. I'm really ambitious and I've got lots of wishes, but if the weather is nice and I'm sitting outside together with my family, I feel like I don't need anything else. Warm weather makes me happy, and we were lucky enough to experience it in Holland last week. However, the tropical temperatures made me think about summer shoes and I decided to take a look at Spartoo.nl. Their great collection inspired me, and based on their shoes, I made this summer guide for you. You can see it as an How-to-pack-your-suitcase-to-have-the-most-amazing-holiday-ever.


Fasten your seatbelt, we're ready for takeoff. Time has finally come: you're leaving your home country and you're so excited. But what to wear when you're travelling? I will not pretend that I never travel in high heels or in clothes that are - to say the least - not that comfortable, but it's really nice to travel in clothes that are comfortable. So let's start with some sneakers. I love my high Converse shoes, but I chose the lower version to create this look. They're available here. I really like these items; their soft colors are perfect for spring and summer, and they are basic but unique at the same time.
Festival season. Whether you're staying home or whether you're going abroad, there are festivals almost everywhere. I love the combination of jeans shorts and some edgy rocker boots. I don't have a perfectly tought-out plan yet, but I'll try to DIY some shorts like these. I guess it won't be the easiest DIY project I ever did, but I'm sure it will work out well! Wish me luck. ;-)
I'm watching you. One of the - infinitely number of - things I love doing in summer, is watching people. This probably sounds pretty weird and I hope it doesn't sound like I'm some sort of creep, but I love sitting in a beach bar or somewhere on a terrace and looking at people to see what they're wearing, what they're doing of even to look at them when they're arguing about something haha. However, whether you like watching people, flirting with bartenders or drinking sangria with some friends, a beach bar is the place to be in summer. Take some airy clothes on, and enjoy! The shoes are available here.
Culture. I, loooove the beach: playing beach soccer, reading books and magazines, walking along the coastline..  However, I also enjoy exploring new places, so an outfit that's appropriate to see some sights is required too. The sandals look really easy-to-walk, so they seem perfect for playing tourist. I think a sunvisor is totally cool too. It's got that cool sporty look, and it's much better than a cap/hat to keep your hair in shape. I've been looking for the perfect one for more than two months now, and I think I just found it. I guess I have to try on this one in stores. :)
Cinderella finds Prince Charming. If the evening has come and you're going to have a dinner with your beloved ones, I think it's so cool to wear an all-white outfit. It gives a fresh and clean look, especially when you wear your hair in a chic updo. The pumps remind me of Cinderella, so you'll definitely be the princess of the place when you're wearing this look!
Dance the night away. Ooh-lala, you'll definitely steal the show when you enter the disco in this outfit. It all starts with the goooorgeous Alexander McQueen pumps, that suit the dress and the necklace perfectly. Unfortunately, the necklace is still "slightly" above my budget, but who knowsssss... ;-) The Chanel nailpolish (shade coco blue) is one of my current favorites, and I think they are a great finishing touch to the look. It gives that special summer-vibe to the whole-black look. Let's party!

  12. I love your 'pack' lists, it sort of taps on every fun event I'd ever have while on holiday, aztec shorts, motorcycle boots and the cutest Acne jacket..oh what a holiday that would have been. My only concern is packing shoes, they weigh way too much (and leave no room for shopping sprees-filling that suitcase while heading back home:-)but really makes an outfit..Great picks!!xx Alice

  18. Very good selection you made, starting with the trip and get to ... final. Do not worry about that you love to watch people. All we do and it is nice and sometimes funny in my country.
    I am in love with the bag festival. Wedges and pants for the beach bar.
    I wish you a beautiful summer!

    It would be very nice if you have time to look at my blog ....
