OASIS trousers, WEEKDAY knit, MAC lipstick, INVITO shoes
Tartan, a print you see much lately. It's in all kind of colors, it can have the color combination you see above, or with green or white etc. My favorite combination is which red and black but I'm also really into the combinations which include green. Perfect for fall, since these colors always come back this season. I own tartan printed trousers myself, but combining them is always hard so I thought it would be fun to create an outfit with trousers like them on polyvore. Dark colors can always be combined with a darker color aka black even though it's not a color but let's not talk about that. This fluffy sweater is from Weekday and in my opinion it would go perfectly with the pants. For shoes some nice heeled, but no too high heeled ankle boots. These ones are from Invito. What I like most about them besides the fact that they are black is the buckle and the height difference in the front. Small details make the difference. And the fact that they're black makes them even more wearable. Invito sells many more ankle boots like these, but these are probably my favorites. Though I must say that these click are gorgeous too. Because of those details, your outfit will be more interesting and edgy. Definitely in combination with some dark lips and sunglasses (if fall allows the sun to shine). What do you think of tartan printed items? Would you wear this outfit?

ASOS jeans, OASAP knit, COOLCAT jacket, SACHA shoes
It's time to wear knits again. Also known as my favorite time of the year, I think. Knits are often very comfy and that's one the main reasons why I love them so much. They also just keep you warm, and that's what we need at this time of the year. Never really know what else to wear besides sweaters and jumpers since layering isn't something I'm good at. So normally it's just me, my jeans, a coat and a sweater. Oh and sometimes a skirt combined with a sweater. Love that combination too, but keeping thighs unbroken is hard, for me at least. I always end up with ladders in it. Oh I wish I were good at layering, maybe someday. Let's hope so. I'm wearing my new jacket by the way. I had been looking for one with a collar for a long time but never found one which I really liked, but I do like this one. Also love how it goes with the grey knit. Any layering tips for me? And what do you think of this look?

1. Last weekend, I started reading 'Looking For Alaska' and I really like it so far. Sadly there's a test week coming up which means less time to read. 2. At the MooiPR press day I saw many beautiful items. These make-up items from Babor were one of my favorites. 3. Treated myself with some tony's chocolonely. 4. Gorgeous flowers are the MooiPR press day. The bites and drinks were delicious too. 5. Desk inspiration makes me want to shop and have my own workspace. 6. Leaving the press day with some flowers and a goodie bag. It was so much fun and saw many pretty items! 7. Morning like these are my favorites. Something to read and something to eat. 8. Went to Mugs & Muffins with Noa. It's one of my favorite places in Nijmegen. 9. Enjoying myself with Pinterest, some food and my new phone case from CaseApp. As I said before in this post, there's a test week coming up. This year is my final year so everything is even more important than it was last year. I'm gonna do my best and that's all I can do I guess. Can't wait for it to be over though, always feels like a relieve. What have you been up to lately? And any things planned?

The trees are getting leafless, the greenness is going away, it's getting colder and there's more rain. It's fall. With fall comes, for a lot of people, a fall dip. We can go outside less, there's less sunshine, shorts and skirt stay in our closet and we can say goodbye to all the ice creams. But hey, we can replace all of that with the good things that comes with fall. Sweaters, tea, cozy evenings etc. I thought it would be fun to make a 'fall survival gids', so here it is! Hope you like it.

Tips for rainy days:
- Invite a friend over, bake some cookies, brownies, muffins or something else like a 'stroopwafel cake' and put a lot of caramel on it as a topping. Only if you like caramel of course.
- Have a cozy evening all by yourself. Take a blanket, wear your favorite and most comfy sweater, make yourself some tea or hot chocolate, put on a nice serie/film or read a good book. (List with my favs below.)
- Make a list of all the things you still have to get done, and go do them!

Tips for non-rainy days:
- Go to the woods with a friend or all by yourself, take your camera with you and take pictures of all the beautiful colors which you're surrounded by! 
- Collect some fallen leaves, chestnuts etc. and put them in a jar so you can decorate your house/room with it.
- Go to a city you've never been to, look for nice hotspots, take your camera with you and take pictures of all the beautiful things you see.
- Or visit a city you know well and walk through the streets you normally skip, visit the stores you normally never go in and end your day at a lovely lunchroom with some hot chocolate/tea and a brownie/muffin/pie etc.

My favs:
Books: The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Fallen, Paper Towns, The Collector, The Secret Life of Bees.
Music: Ed Sheeran - X, Chef'Special - Passing Through, Ben Howard - I Forget Where We Were, The 1975 - The 1975, Hozier - Take Me To Church.
Series: Orange Is the New Black, How I Met Your Mother, New Girl, Breaking Bad, The Vampire Diaries, Modern Family.

What do you like to do when it's fall? How do you spend your time when it's raining outside?

You might recognize this outfit from the outfit video I uploaded earlier. We shot these pics after we walked through the woods and had some tea and cake at the castle which is also there. It's such a beautiful place with a great atmosphere. We have been there quite a lot and still it never gets boring. I want to go inside the castle someday, the last time I did go inside was more than 7 years ago. From what I remember it's gorgeous, all the rooms are nicely decorated. I noticed my hair looks really orange on the picture. In real it's less orange and a bit more brown. I decided to dye my hair (not permanent) but it turned out a bit different than expected. Orange instead of middle brown.. Luckily it'll be outfit after 4-6 washes (they say). What have you been up to? And what do you think of the outfit?

When I got the invite for the opening of the Ibis Hotel City Centre Rotterdam, I was kinda surprised. Another opening? Not that I didn't want to go. The opening of the Mercure hotel was delightful so I couldn't wait to go to this one. After school I took the train to Rotterdam and travelled with Anne & Nicole. When we arrived at the hotel, we all checked-in and went to our rooms. A couple of minutes later, the opening really started. There were speeches, a flyboard performance (which was pretty cool) and there was a walking dinner with very tasteful bites. Sara arrived just in time for the dinner, and it was so fun finally meeting her. We had seen each other before, but that was just like for a minute at a festival. We sat down with a lot of other bloggers, ordered cocktails and also decided to go to city, but we didn't find a fun place to go so after a while we went back to the hotel. Sara & I woke up early because we had to go back to school. But before we left, it was time for some breakfast, which was delicious as always. We also shot some outfit pictures, which are up on the blog. I had a great stay (the bed was so comfy!!) and hope to come back one day! Thanks Ibis & KetchumPR!

Going to the woods is something I love doing but only go there like 2/3 times a year. Yesterday we went there and I thought the fall colors would be all around but the leaves were still pretty green. So that was kinda disappointing so maybe in a few weeks the colors will be more fall-ish. Red, yellow, orange etc. We filmed an outfit in a minute video so I hope you like that one. If you wanna know where the clothes are from, check out the description on youtube! Do you like going to the woods? What do you think of this video?

Sara took this picture yesterday. After we had a delicious breakfast at the Ibis hotel in Rotterdam, we packed our bags and walked to the train station to go home/to school. It was early, but not too early to take some outfit pictures. Sara 'spotted' this place so we decided to take some pictures here. I must say I'm actually really happy with the result. The picture is bright and there aren't much distracting things in it. Two things which I find important when it comes to outfit pictures. I'm just wearing what I like to wear. Skirts, sweaters and long coats. Plus my choker, which I have been obsessed with lately. Not sure why, maybe just because of the vibe it gives to your look. What do you think of chokers? Yay or nay? Or does it depend on the outfit/person?
