I found these photos of my all-time favorite fashion icons Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I am inspired (and almost obsessed!) by them since I was a little girl and now they're grown women I love them even more. In their teens they were all American twins: same clothes, hair and expression. But now they have chosen their own apth and living their own lives and it shows. Mary-Kate and Ashley are more successful than ever, but more behind the scenes. They are the owners and designers of two high-fashion lines, namely The Row and Elizabeth and James. The Olsens are the most famous twins in the world and they will never ever use their names anymore to sell. It's all about their creations.

These shots are taken for Vogue US, April 2011.

Necklaces Mi Casa, Maria bracelet Mi Casa, Gold watch Vintage

I'm really into gold jewelry these days.. I love gold watches and necklaces, they are always giving your outfit a little touch.
This vintage watch is my absolute favorite. It looks really old fashioned and in reality, it IS old fashioned.. My mom bought this 18 carat gold watch from her savings when she was in her mid-twenties (and this watch is kind of big for these days!). A few months ago my mom found it in a little jewelry box of her and she gave it to me. I couldn't be more happy because I was looking for such a watch for months.
I wonder if I will ever be able to give it to my (future?!) daughter some day..

For about a month, I was dying for red pants. As I told you before, red pants were on top of my 'wanna-have' list for the summer. But I suddenly changed my mind when I say this pink pants..
This summerloving pants likely will get some attention while walking the streets. Together with this orange blouse, me and my outfit are ready for some sunny days!

Summer feelings

I wanted to share these pics from Aaiko's Spring/Summer collection with you. I went to their show about 6 months ago and we ordered some looks from this collection for Update. The show was a mix between the Spring and Summer collection and what I really love about the summer collection is that it is so full of bright and sparkling colors. The Spring collection is a mix of green, beige and brown to create a cool safari look; great to start this awesome weather with. You we'll so more of it in stores!

Loose the jacket!

T-shirt Lanvin for H&M, Jacket Unknown, Shorts Zara, Shoes Esprit

The sun is shining, birds are singing and the green is colored by flowers. So there is only one thing I can say which is: loose the jacket and put your sunglasses on!
Enjoy the weather because you'll never know if tomorrow will be as good as today!

Pants H&M, Shirt American Vintage, Shoes Vans, Necklaces Mi Casa

I bought this pants with graphic design last week at H&M, while spending the day in Amsterdam. I really like the pattern and the way they combined the off-white background with the black stripes. There is something funny about it, I don't know exactly what it is! Another thing about this pants is that you can create a high-fashion look with it, or make it casual and playful, like I did with this oversized shirt and Vans. A perfect outfit for a long day at school while the sun shines through the windows. And with gold accessoires it only gets better!

I have to apologize for posting nothing for such a long time. A confusing period at school and a vacation which allowed me to relax a bit kept me from my computer.
You may think; blablablabla.. excuses excuses! But there is nothing else I can say, eh eh ;)
I make it up to you with some pics from the last 2 weeks.
