Frosty Orange

Orangy rocket power! Even Ice Cream loves orange.
These wedges here are gonna be my #1 shoe choice for summer. The color is so bright, vibrant and juicy.  I got them during last year’s sale season at the Steve Madden store in Antwerpen. You can find some similar ones here and here.
May I recall you that orange is the most wanted color for this spring/summer 2014?
From lips to shoes to coat to nails, go get something orange quick. Keep your skin tone in mind though. For the perfect nail/lips combo I recommend the lipsticks and nail polishes of Catrice. 
Catrice is known for its bright and playful shades and the color range is amazing. Check more of their summer collection here and let me know what your next orange item’s gonna be.

Every King's Queen

It is very probable to find a Queen without a King, but what is a King without a Queen. He needs that stronghold called a woman by his side. Only she is capable of leaving everything behind to stand tall by her man. Her ability to teach and learn has no limits, she can do anything she puts her mind to. She is the manager of her household, the bonding force that keeps everything together. Her infinite attention to detail and keen character is shown through the confidence of her family. So once again I ask, is there a King without a proper Queen?!
My main inspiration : A new celebration, King's Day it is!
Florals are very traditional this season, they are the definition of Spring.
It can come in handy to have at least a floral skirt or sun dress that you can recycle from time to time and future Springs to come. A cute cinched waisted mini, like the one I’m wearing here, has that very feminine and sultry touch. It can also be worn a bit more laidback (see this post also). Try some all star sneakers or moccasins for a fun and flirty look. This mini is mainly green so I thought it’ll look great with an orange solid, kept it in sync with the long green and copper beaded earrings. This skirt I’ve been recycling for a long long time now, but you can find a similar one here! For my peeps in Curacao, try a cute peplum style like the one found here!
The T-shirt, wedges and round glasses are from Zara. I bought the earrings when I was vacationing in Curacao.

So what you now about that, what are your thoughts….I’ll be pleased to hear

La Femme Fleur / La Femme Fatale

La Femme Fleur:


Spring is the season of new beginnings, where the flowers blossom and love flourishes
The season of fresh scented mornings and songbird melodies
Where we enjoy those meaningful Sundays and quietness creates the sound of our thoughts
In the words of Hodgson Burnett (1998) : the sun shining on the rain, and the rain falling on the sunshine
It’s when Picasso fell in love with Francoise, his delicate and tender Femme Fleur

The elements of the earth will create new life, all during the season which we call Spring

La Femme Fatale:


Got this Femme jumper from Zara and the first thing that came to my mind was “Nikita..Femme Fatale”
So to complete the sexy look, I paired it with this mini fluted hem skirt and black velvet stilettos.
The thing is I like a sexy that is also playful. The neon clutch creates exactly the kind of look I want. The graffiti font on the jumper gave me a comic book personality feel, it also matched the wall perfectly and made the story complete.
To make it work for you, think in proportions. The cropped jumper sits right above the navel which along with the fluted hem skirt creates the illusion of balanced curves. If you have a longer jumper, try tucking it in. Because I’m showing a whole lot of legs, I opted to keep the upper part of my body covered. Personally I enjoy wearing fluted hem skirts with long sleeves. There is something about covered arms that avoids a pear shape illusion.The jumper, skirt, clutch and stilettos are from Zara. The earrings are from H&M.

Oh my Blues: The Edit


I’ve noticed that lately I have been wearing a lot of blue, so I decided to put a simple edit together with all of my inspirations and thoughts. Enjoy!

Blue light through the chapel window- Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
The sight by night - Santorini, Greece
Salty Summer
The Lighthouse at Klein Curacao
Beautiful art at the Hearst Castle - San Simeon, USA
The Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Mosque - Abu Dhabi
The Angsana Velavaru Resort, Dhaalu Atoll - Maldives

Blue is the color intoxicated with joy, the color of loyal, of the soulful and jazz. 
The shade of my dreams when my skies are blue
It’s the sound of the air, the breeze of the ocean
It’s the smell of ice, the sense of the cold
Related to masculinity yet the mother of many colors
Blue for that first heartbreak that feels so raw
Blue for the source of life that quenches every thirst
Blue so poetic, my favorite color: 
If violets are blue and roses are red then let go of your pride and love me instead

Casual blue, The alternative suit


The vivid color and less than structured trousers makes of this classic duo an alternative choice for a suit. The cool cropped top adds a touch of interest, while the vibrant colors like orange and neon enhance the electric blue.
Cropped tops are great for the sunny days, as long as you don’t overexpose the other parts of the body.  It’s a casual yet sophisticated way of wearing a suit, making it just right for a day out with friends.
As for my make-up I find it quite amusing to color coordinate lipstick with nail polish.  Coral goes beautifully with blue and it’s always a smart shade to wear during spring/summer.
Ahh! The color combo is refreshing in every sense of the word. I can’t help but think about the Caribbean Sea, its skin kissing sun rays and foot melting sand.  I’m just a proud Caribbean chick.

Jacket: H&M
Cropped top: H&M
Neon Sandals: H&M
Clutch: River Island
Earrings: H&M
Bracelet: H&M / Zara
