#OOTD: The layered trend for those cold days

November 4, 2015

Brrrrr, it’s so cold outside! Thank god for this autumns layered trend which allows us to stay warm during the autumn & winter months. What is the layered trend you ask? It’s a mix of materials, it’s (often) oversized, it’s comfy, it’s warm, it’s creative! The cool part about this trend is the fact that even if you think that it might be too much, it could totally still work if you do it right. Here are a couple of examples from the previous fashion week streetstyles:

These ladies sure know how to look beautiful with all those layers! As you can see: any material, color, print, length, shape or accessory is possible! Popular for this look are tulle skirts, wide legged trousers or A-line dresses in combination with oversized sweaters. This trend is ideal for experimenting and finding out which materials or prints look good on you, and you will stay warm and comfy in the meanwhile!

The other day I went shopping in Mango and put together this simple yet stylish outfit, as you can see the wide legged trousers with the oversized sweater are an important part of my look! Under the sweater I am wearing a white blouse in order to create that layered effect which makes the look more interesting. To give the outfit a personal touch I am wearing my currently favorite black fedora hat with girly braids.

Regarding the print, I went for large chalkstripes in the trousers, something I had never tried before until now! I thought it was a cliché, but it looks so classy and it makes your legs look longer, definitely a print that’s going to stay in my closet! Furthermore I adore the cute laced detail on the back of my supersoft sweater! The heels give the outfit a more feminine feeling. Since you can see no shapes of the body at all, this is a great way to keep your look ladylike.

My next step: Hola Barcelona!

October 20, 2015

Today is a BIG day for me because… I AM MOVING TO BARCELONA! That’s right, by the time you are reading this, I am on my way to Spain with three suitcases and two backpacks (a girl needs to prepare herself okay?!) anxious to see my lovely boyfriend and MOVE IN TOGETHER. Why is it necessary to move to Barcelona you may wonder? In just a couple of days I will go BACK TO SCHOOL. Oh hell yes, I will start my second master at the INSA Business School to learn more about Art Direction and Creative Advertising because… it’s just freakin’ cool that’s why! So BOOM there you go, triple shock!

But don’t you worry guys, it will be a part-time master so I still have lots of time to share cool stuff with you on the blog and to continue with my modelling! And besides, I will still be able to travel around. Or better said… I will make time to travel around, I just can’t help myself.

Anyways, since I will be spending lots of time in Barcelona from now on, I decided to do some research on a very important issue: where will I be able to satisfy my fashion addiction?! I mean… three suitcases and two backpacks is not THAT much… right? I made a Top 5 of shops which I already visited and LOVE in combination with shops which I am dying to discover. Check them out!

La Roca Village

La Roca Village, s/n (Shuttlebus from Plaça Catalunya)

This huge outlet centrum suits its name, it’s like a small town right outside of Barcelona. It has many cool brands such as Armani, Aristocrazy, Calvin Klein, Furla, Guess, Karen Millen, Michael Kors, Swarovksi and more! As a kid in a candystore I ran from one store to another, controlling my urges to buy everything that I found. By the end of the day I scored some amazing new stuff for great discount prices… Shopping heaven, I tell you!

Serra Claret

Provença 278 (Metro Diagonal)

This list wouldn’t be complete without some vintage! Serra Claret is located in the beautiful area Eixample and is known for stocking exclusive brands such as Marc by Marc Jacobs, Neil Barrett, Dsquared and Forte Forte. The first Serra Claret store opened in 1933 and emphasizes customer service with a personal touch. I always have a hard time finding hot items in vintage stores so perhaps they could help me? I will definitely go and find out!

Passage BCN

Carrer de l’Abat Samsó 7 (Train Sarriá)

The concept store Passage is actually one of the few in Barcelona! It has beautiful gallery spaces, pop-up stores, a champagne bar, fashion books, events, gadgets, accessories and obviously… fashion! Passage definitely sets the standards high with selling creative top brands such as Karl Lagerfeld, which sparkle inspiration and imagination. Very promising indeed, I can’t wait to visit!

La Maquinista

Carrer de Potosí 2 (Metro Torras i Bages)

This is a lesser known shopping mall in Barcelona because it’s a bit out of the city center, but it’s totally worth a visit! It has all the stores you usually would have to cross the complete city for (twice!) in one magnificent huge mall. On top of that, the atmosphere is very relaxing with lots of plants, music and open spaces. Do you feel like shopping without stress? This is the place to go!

Dolores Promesas

Rambla Catalunya 111 (Metro Diagonal)

 I haven’t been here yet but this store seems to have it all: vintage decoration to admire, three floors to discover and a coffee shop to recover! Also not unimportant: the collection of Dolores Promesas fits perfect with the stylish interior. It’s feminine, elegant, playful, strong and very much affordable! Rambla Catalunya is a street parallel to the famous Passeig de Gracia, very central and easy to reach, I will be passing by Dolores Promesas as fast as I can!
