Yeah!! The summer is here :-)

The summer is here and that means: bare legs! Yeah. I love to show some skin in the summer and the best way to do that is, of course, with skirts. In this blog I will show you some of my favorite looks.

I love to combine different patterns and to mix & match it all together into one look. This look makes me feel like my inner Sophie Loren is coming out.

A skirt doesn’t always have to be girlie. Go for a sportive look like my look above. For example, you can easily dress this tartan piece down with some sneakers and a polo.

Everybody that knows me, knows my love for leopard prints. For me leopard print is like a neutral: you can combine it with almost everything. For this look I went all over with this print. What do you think about it?

New year new shoes

The year has just began and what a great way to start 2016 with some new boots. I’m a real shoe lover and I especially like the real eye catchers, so these cowboy boots with gold leopard print are perfect for me. These babies are from the new collection of Colette Sol and are limited edition!

I combined the boots with black ripped jeans, my all time favorite body from Wolford and to finish the look: a white leather jacket from the brand Stand. I love how the golden zippers of the jacket match with my boots. But I can’t wait to wear the boots this summer with bare legs to a nice festival!

So did you also fell in love with my beau boots? Colette Sol gives you 50,- euro off with the code Nadeche50. Check it here

What to wear because it’s Sweater Weather

It’s definitely sweater weather, so what kind of sweater are you going to wear? A lot of people think a sweater is just a sweater but… Think again! It’s up to you how you feel and what you like to wear that day. So if you want to go for a preppy look or a more minimalistic feeling or even a fun sweater to wear, just go ahead!

For me it’s really simple; I dress how my mood is that day and comfort myself with a nice outfit that goes along. Most of the times I start with the top of my outfit, because for me that is nine out of ten times the best way to start.

On this blogpost I wanted to show you some different sweaters. They are all from McGregor fall/winter collection 2015.  McGregor has a big range of different styles this winter, especially when it comes to their top wear.

For the first look I went for the minimalistic feeling, so I chose to wear only a chunky knitted sweater and some savvy boots.  This is an easy peasy look that suits everybody and everyone’s body shape. It’s nice to wear it with opaque tights. I love to wear my sweaters oversized. I normally wear a size S, but sometimes I just buy a sweater two sizes up, to really get that oversized look.

Fashion must be fun! That’s why my second look is a bit fun. Are you in a really happy state of mind, like me, choose something different than the ordinary. Nowadays there are so many nice sweaters with funny lyrics or applications on it. Like this funny basset sweater of McGregor. I love dogs a lot, so this is the perfect funny sweater for me. I combined the sweater with a silver sparkle skirt, polkadots tights and glitter shoes.

Sweater Basset

For the third look I chose to wear a classic, preppy look. Shirt button up with a classic preppy knitted sweater in navy. Navy is that type of classic color that everyone could pull off.  To top the look of, I wear my nerdy glasses from Polette.

Sweater Cricket

And last but not least the sportive sweater. I’m so not a sporty girl, but I like to pretend that I am. This type of sweater goes well with jeans. Just to have that casual sportive look. All though I do like this look, it always needs to be a bit glammed up for me. That’s why I combined it with this sporty chic beanie with a veal and apple red lips.

Wolford winter wear

nadechenadechenadeche de zwartnadeche de zwartnadeche de zwart

I love to have bare legs in the summer, you know showing a little bit skin never hurt nobody. But now with the winter coming we all have to cover up our legs. And better to do that with the tights from Wolford. I really can say, next to their bodies, I own one that I bought more than ten years ago and it is still in perfect shape, they make one of the best tights too.

For this look I wear the Limited Edition tights called the Glam Rock Style. These babies have 8,500 rivets and are applied by hand. They are limited and there are only 699 pairs of this tights worldwide, so if you buy one you are almost sure that nobody on your coming Christmas party wears the same.

I combined the tights with a simple knitted turtle neck dress from H&M and a leather biker from Goosecraft.

Tartan Rock Chic

Tartan shirts are a big trend this fall/winter 2015-2016. Every high street label has one in their collection, but what is the heritage of the tartan? Before the tartan pattern was picked up by the fashion industry, it was formerly worn as a skirt, named a kilt. This kind of garment is traditionally worn by Scottish men. The tartan pattern is a part of the Scottish culture and until the middle of the nineteenth century, the highland tartans were only associated with either regions or districts. The patterns were simply different regional checked-cloth patterns, chosen by the wearer’s preference – in the same way as people nowadays choose what colors and patterns they like in their clothing, without particular reference to propriety.

In 1921 McGregor was one of the first fashion brands that made the Scottish tartan into a fashion item. The founder of McGregor started with a collection hats in tartan and that was the start of this lifestyle brand. Every season McGregor uses different tartan patterns in their collection. This season it is with a lot of grey and red colors, just like the shirt I’m wearing above. I love to combine this preppy tartan shirt with the rocking ballerina tulle skirt from Raine and to finish my look with these studded boots. It makes my outfit playful and a bit more rock and roll.  What do you think?

Ohh la la LaDress

The temperature is rising every hour, so today is a perfect day to wear a dress. I have chosen to wear my LaDress for a special occasion, because today Simone van Trojen, founder of LaDress is opening her new Headquarter in collaboration with Harper’s BAZAAR.

I can’t wait to see her new office and -of course- her beautiful dresses. LaDress has the most perfect dresses for every occasion. If you need a dress for in the office, attending a wedding, or even to go to the beach. LaDress has it all in every color that you can imagine.

I’m wearing the Carla dress in the eye popping color Bleu Iris. It is such a lovely color, it makes my skin look more sun kissed. I combined it with my new clutch from Skinny Dip London and my bold red heels from Primark. If you like LaDress and you’re still trying to find your perfect dress for a special happening: visit the LaDress Summer Festival in a chance to win their iconic Carla dress.

Can I have some extra mustard please?

I really like the black & white theme, but I can’t help myself to always add some color to it. Otherwise it might be a bit dull. That is why I added some mustard yellow to my outfit. This kind of warm yellow is a nice combo with black & white, but it is also a lovely color to combine with brown and bordeaux shades, especially in autumn. And what do you think about my new iPhone case? It is from the brand Iphoria. I discovered their brand on Instagram and they have the funniest phone accessories. The one I bought is so me, leopard print all over and it has a mirror! So that comes very handy, especially for touching up our makeup and, of course, all of our selfies. 😉

Last week it was Amsterdam Fashion Week and I was honored to get to see some shows. Last monday I went to two fashion shows with Ikram and Maureen; one of a German designer named Arrey and a Dutch one named Franzel. It was nice to see the new collection and get some fashion inspiration for summer 2016.

The look that I was wearing for the Fashion Week is the new collection of Elisabetta Franchi fall/winter 2015/2016. I’m in love with this brand. Every piece that she makes is luxurious, sophisticated and feminine. I feel like a modern princess in her dresses. Soon I will tell you more about this brand. I finished my look with a tangerine and white striped clutch of L.K Bennett with matching lipstick and wearing my hair in a wet look.

Dubai Getaway

A couple of months ago I went to Dubai with my boyfriend to have a little getaway. I was really craving for some sun. Being mixed race and living in Holland makes me sometimes in need for some extra vitamin D. Our trip was only for five days, but Dubai treated us well. Everyday it was around 26 degrees Celsius, so there was not a lot of wardrobe involved during our stay.

I’m looking forward for those warm days to share more summer looks with you!

A while ago I had a shoot for Mercer Amsterdam. Mercer is a fancy sneaker brand from Amsterdam and is founded by sneakerfreak Pim Dresen. He bought his first pair of limited edition sneakers in New York and that was the start of his own sneaker brand. His motivation to start his own brand was that he wanted to create something different from the ordinary. He gets his inspiration of the casual chic vibe from the streets of Amsterdam, combined with the rawness of New York. That makes the Mercer shoes unique. Beside the looks of the sneakers I can tell you that they walk heavenly. I can’t stop wearing my yellow runners.
