‘SUMMER LOOKS’ WHEN YOU LIVE IN NORTHERN EUROPE

Let’s face it. Summer in Amsterdam doesn’t really offer tropical temperatures. Luckily we can play around with layers to help keeping alive our summer wardrobe (we’ve been killing to start wearing) by covering up here and there.

Shoes, in this case sandals, play a big part into making your outfit season appropriate, even if the temperatures are closer to the single digit. As soon as the sun comes out and the day seems to be dry our feet deserves some air and our pedicure some showing off.

To re-create this style you just need to mix and match your summer and fall wardrobe. Open shoes with a long cardigan or what also work is bare legs with ankle boots.

I really love this cardigan bold star print. It’s a casual cut and fit but the print really stands out and makes a simple outfit of skinny jeans and white t-shirt much more interesting. You know how much I love pairing my casual wardrobe with statement pieces and this cardigan and sandals really are the core for a summer in the city. They creates the perfect casual chic balance

Luckily the days in the city are not much left. We are all getting ready for our summer travelling but in the meantime we can still enjoy some city trendy looks without being too casual, neither too dress up.. or like, for us living in northern Europe.. never too warm! ūüėČ

As if we needed another reason to go shopping, right? . . But, if we invest in basics, in my opinion it’s always money well spent! Together with denim shorts and white t-shirts, what it won’t miss my summer wardrobe is silk tops.

Lace and daywear doesn’t normally walk hand in hand but if we effortlessly pair it with distressed denim, sneakers and a boy style shirt it’s a piece that we can take from day to night and it’s worth the little investment. It’s a very simple and effective way to add a feminine touch to a boyish ensemble.

AROUND AMSTERDAM WITH OTTERBOX

SONY DSC When OtterBox asked me to be one of their ambassadors I couldn’t think of a collaboration that would suit me better. I mean, think of me and my phone like we are one, and you get the feeling! Yes, I cannot ever use the excuse I didn’t see a message or an email.. I admit I am that kind who always walks with my phone in my hands, risk my life daily when crossing the street too busy replying a WhatsApp message, never miss a day to update my socials. And if you are thinking of dining and wining with me, it gets odd sometimes.. you have to wait to start eating your food until I took at least a dozen of photos (the first one is never perfect) and if we try to have coffee? That’s really my thing, you can forget a fuming hot cappuccino, especially if we sit where they serve some coffee art. Finally, my 6 months old daughter is probably one of the most photographed of the world wide web! My boyfriend calls it ‘a bit’ annoying, I call it creating memories, and of course, work! If there is something you can trust me, besides shopping, is when I talk phone cases.

Since I always love to try all the hot places in town, I have decided of showing you my very favourite spot in Amsterdam!

IMG_2637

IMG_2613 I am taking you to the Conservatorium hotel. On my top list favourite places in the city. Mix of historical building and new design, high glass topped lobby, 5 stars service with still a very friendly staff, one of the best cappuccinos and lunch spot in town, impeccable service.. Loads of good natural light, wifi, yup! That’s sounds perfect to me! And getting to shoot in this location was a real treat.

SONY DSC When it comes to what I wear, details are always the most important to me. I could wear the same ripped denim for weeks but the accessories must always be on point, and my phone being my thing, it must be ‘dressed’ accordingly.

What I love about the OtterBox Symmetry Series Clear case, it is the fully clear back. It shows the rose gold colour of my I-phone and most important, since it did happen to me with other brands in the past, this case doesn’t create a shade around the phone camera. This way I can still take great pictures without compromising in quality!

Moreover, protection is at the heart of the brand and I love to know that everything that is inside my phone ‚Äď emails, thousands of photos, all my apps. – are always safe!

A stylish yet protective phone case. Just the way I like it.

I loved starting my day with a delicious cappuccino, which tasted as good as its pretty look in the picture, while I was checking my emails.. and of course taking photos of it! We did a three hours shooting, which sometimes can be very tiring so a yummy lunch was impossible to resist. We hoovered a way too high quantity of french fries but with such a location, every excuse is good enough to stay a little longer.

We are now planning the second shooting coming to the blog the first weekend of March. New location to discover, same case, different colour.. and hopefully, equally good cappuccino!!

[OUTFIT INSPIRATION] BANDANA AND STRIPES WRAP

10799745_10153324490443219_1485730575_n

There is nothing as powerful as a colour palette of red, blues and whites to light up this grey Sunday in London. The contrast of stripes and a bandana scarf gives the outfit that hippie touch to finish up this cocktail of happy-go-lucky colours. Finally the lucky charm is recovered in the supersize symmetry of culottes with one of my most wanted flat forms of the moment.
