Good morning love-bugs! How have you been? I'm writing you from France and am happy to say that the weather has been Great (with a capital G) the last few days. Or should I say Hot? Either way, some sun is just what we needed! A happy me results in a happy outfit. I'm usually not a big print person (I don't know why really), but when my eye caught this cute tanktop when I was wondering through the Forever21 I just couldn't leave without taking it with me. So here I am, flowery top, yellow wall and a big smile. Happy holidays!

What do you think? Should I be wearing more of these crazy prints? I would love to hear your opinions!

Yesterday was that time of year again, it was ma birthday! Yes yes, I turned 25. Twenty-five. A quarter-century! WHAAA. But you are as old as you feel right? That would make me... uh... 75? Just kidding! Unfortunately it poured all day so we didn't get the chance to lay out or make use of the pool (crazy France!) but if we may believe the weather forecast the upcoming days are gonna be insane (30 degrees and up) so that will make up for lost tanning time.
Enough about that, my birthday. My family and one of my besties who came to visit woke me up with some pretty loud birthday songs. Man, they are blessed with golden voices (NOT). I have to admit, waking up like this makes you happy. We had breakfast (three times hooray for the country that encourages carbs: une baguette s'il vous plait!), I got to open my presents (champagne, super cool Ray Ban sunnies, a silver necklace which I'm never-ever gonna take off anymore, some coconut goodies and sweet words. Also, my parents made me a slide-show with different pictures from when I was a baby till now. So sweet!
Later that afternoon we ate tarte du pomme, drank champagne, played pictionary (yes really!), ate some more, opened another bottle of champagne, watched a Despicable me, had dinner, laughed at each others stories and I ended up planking myself into the sofa. Sounds good huh? If the rain ever thought it could destroy my birthday, it was wrong, HA!

Bonjour! My first French-like post is a fact (!) and gosh we have been lucky, the sun decided to come out today! Gimme a halleluja ya'll! It has been cloudy all Sunday and the weather forecast hasn't been really optimistic either. But hey how trustworthy are these weather guys anyways? I feel like I'm way better at predicting things anyways, and I swear the sun is going to shine tomorrow. Point made. In the meantime this weather calls for washed denim shorts and oversized T-shirts, just the way I like it. I have made this cute anklet with shells (got to stay creative on rainy days), and I'm really loving it. What do you think?

Oh I almost forgot but you must have noticed... My hair color! (big YAY!) As I told you before I went to Rob Peetoom last week and am very happy with the end result. Got my chocolate brownish color back again, and we added some subtle highlights for a more summery, nonchalant look. Do you like it?

Tomorrow I have an appointment at Rob Peetoom, one of my favorite hair salons. Ever since I changed from being a blonde to being a brunette I have been a regular customer. I always really enjoy my time at the salon; someone fidgeting with my hair, reading some magazines, sipping on a cappuchino. Just a little me-time. The only thing I always find difficult is figure out what I want with my look. Since I went from light to dark it is difficult to change things up without totally destroying my hair. Luckily I'm still very pleased with being a brunette, so I don't see myself going back to blonde any time soon. Maybe just a few highlights here and there? Or not... I don't know yet. 

Curious? Stay tuned, I will make sure to upload some pictures on Instagram whilst this all is happening.

Simple, easy to combine, summer proof and one of my all time favorites: the camisole, or cami(s), whatever floats your boat. These pictures were taken a little while ago (shame on me, I tend to lag behind events sometimes), when I went to a festival together with my partner in crime Rosanna. On days like these I usually try on 10 different kind of outfits and always end up wearing something like this. To me fashion is also about feeling comfortable, and this just hits the right spot. Add some jewelry to a look like this and you're all set! (Too bad you can't see the necklace I'm wearing, it's totally cute - will show you soon!)

Little lace bra's, little cotton triangle bra's, white, black, striped, I love them all! These bralets are perfect for wearing underneath low-cut tops. Peek-a-booing some cuteness. The only thing is that small boobies are almost a musthave if you want to wear wireless bra's like these. I guess I could say that is one of the perks of being small breasted!

Look at me, as happy as Larry (Jup, I learned a new saying). I finally found the fisherman's hat I was looking for. Last summer I was obsessed with snapbacks and now this obsession has to make room for my love for this Greek stunner. Perfect in combination with a basic T-shirt. Just the way I like it.

What do you think of this hat? Would you wear it?
