As always, the famous fashion-week photographer Tommy Ton shot some amazing pictures full of inspiration and upcoming trends. Including the plaid trend. It has become a beloved print for coats and even shoes, as well as an accessory! Plaids have become a funky addition to the outfit. I really like the twist, it takes some time getting used to but when I do, there already will be something new. Click for more inspiration.

I am so very sorry that I have been MIA all summer.. I was completely focused on making this one of the best summers I had. And I am proud to say that I succeeded. I have had a great summer holiday with some of my closest friends. We created amazing memories, we visited awesome festivals and I met a lot of new people. I also worked a lot so I was able to do all these great things. I didn’t go abroad, but luckily the sun shined as well. Some days the temperature would reach 30 degrees Celsius. Which, for my country, is pretty high. As much as would like to say that I got a serious tan, I didn’t. My skin may be a tone or 2 darker, but that was mainly thanks to my selftanning-lotion.
I am currently starting my fifth year of ‘high-school’, so I am almost finished. I do find it quite difficult but I can manage, I have to. I also have been really focussing on my future study. What am I going to do exactly and where? My mind hasn’t changed, it will always be the big american dream, which I told you about of course. But I sure need to have a back-up plan. Because not all dreams come true.. Unfortunately. So I came with an alternative; studying in Utrecht. I will be closer to my sister, and I would still be able to do my study of choice. And Utrecht is a great city, it reminds me of my home town but bigger! But that is still two years away, which means I am still able to change my mind, although I highly doubt it. Until we’re there, I still have enough time to enjoy my life here in Breda. I see my friends are already developing themselves by going to different cities and going to other schools. Although I love them very much, I am quite jealous of them. I as well want to start over and meet new people, and actually learn something I am truly interested in. I am going to miss them bunches when they leave.. Until they leave, we'll make the best of it! I am sure!
This was a small update of the past couple of months, I will be posting new articles every week! Talk to you later!

It’s alive! Yes, I still exist. I am truly very sorry I haven’t been writing lately. School had me stuck for a couple of weeks and after that I was too busy with having fun. Yes cliche, but honest. In the past couple of months in which I haven’t written, I got so much good news, and I had so much fun with my friends. I went to London, I visited a couple festivals; Soenda and Awakenings Festival, I made some great purchases from bags to shoes to jewellery, and last but not least; I passed my year! What I have been working for the entire year has finally paid of! Next year I will finally learn something new but I am not sure if I am exited about it or scared.. Will I pass next year, will it be easy, what if i won’t pass? These questions are flying through my head but I try to bury them somewhere deep, and maybe I will answer them after the summer.
A lot of my friends did their exams and passed, most of them are leaving the city. Which means that my next couple of years will be quite boring and quiet for me. I think I will get passed it, although it truly is difficult. But it is summer holiday right now, so it is time to think about all the good stuff, and have loads of fun. Which brings me to my latest addiction: Techno and Deep-house music. I have been to a couple techno festivals in the last 2 months, and I can clarify that after going to such an event, my entire music collection on iTunes has changed. Last saturday I went to Awakenings Festival, which is Europe’s biggest techno festival in Amsterdam and saw some of the greatest DJ’s from all over the world including Carl Cox and the legend Fritz Kalkbrenner. My next festival will be Welcome To The Future, which is also in Amsterdam. It is funny how I can see such a change in myself, because about a halve year back I hated techno and thought it was boring.. Look at me now, hihi, quite funny really.
Another update which I see as a great initiative of myself is my membership with the gym. I finally got my dad so far to let me join their family membership. Because I am not going anywhere this summer I might as well spend some time at the gym. I went there last friday and I must say that I still have to learn a lot, because I probably looked like a first class Noob on those treadmills.
But besides all these great goals and stories about all the good stuff, there were also ups and downs. I am not going to discus that here because I like to keep my blog full of happy and great stories. But in the end everything has a moral to the story and you are always learning new things. When you want something you should work for it. Not everything just happens to get on your path by its own. Not only am I proud of myself for finding that out but some of my friends also saw the core in this knowledge. And I can speak from experience that getting something which you worked for all by yourself feels the best of all.

I have been crushing on cropped tops lately. Belly-tops are back y’all and they are worn and sold everywhere. I bought my first cropped top 3 years ago from Topshop. A grey loose top which I combined with a pair of high waisted shorts. But nowadays the top is worn the same way they did in the 90’s, showing a stripe of skin or even your entire belly. Which is also the tricky catch behind this trend. Either you wear it in a fashionable way, or it turns out slutty. Which was the word my brother used when describing my outfit last thursday. Cropped can’t go wrong when you pair it with a blazer and some coloured jeans, like I did. But apparently my brother thought otherwise. I think that this is a trend which isn’t really accepted as fast as maybe other trends, it takes some getting used to. And hey, I don’t blame them, everybody is showing their belly at the moment, it is quite a shock if you’re not into the whole “fashion-thing”. I recently bought 3 cropped tops, very simple and really cheap. And when I am of to London tomorrow I am sure that I will be seeing more of them in stores such as Primark and Topshop. Here are some examples. What do you think?
