winter must haves

Why a teddy jacket? I bought one last year in a blue / purple colour and it really was my best purchase ever. OK if it rains it is not ideal, but then you have to be a little prepared and bring an umbrella or creative and wear a poncho over it, like us in The Netherlands who bike. This jacket is in fact so warm and fluffy that I really want to hug it all day. Actually, I would like to buy another one, this one, but I try to be sensible and not purchase the same thing twice, although I think it’s really cool in the gray…

These are ultimate winter must haves for any fashion loving girl. I Pull & Bear love long and wide clothing. Lovely to hide away from winter and wear to hang out on the couch. Because believe me if I had the choice, during the winter I would rather lie in bed all day. OK, this is obviously not realistic, but with such an outfit you can even feel cosy in the office. Almost like being at home! It is very comfy but also looks stylish in (if you do have to go out the door). I have do not this particular dress, but I do have a number of similar dresses in different colours and sizes. If you wear this style once, you will never want to wear anything else in winter!

Pull & Bear

This skirt is really awesome. I really like everything with suede and the related Pocahontas-look. During my summer holiday in Ibiza I bought a similar skirt with buttons on it and I am so happy that I did! When I cam across this skirt but in black only this week, I had to have it. Heck, you only live once I guess. Such a skirt can be combined with so many different things. A sweater, a top, a long cardigan … and of course thick tights underneath. Then you’re ready for winter!

Pull & Bear

You can’t have a complete winter wardrobe without it: a warm scarf. How could I leave this out of a list of winter must haves. Especially with the rain and the wind we get here. I never leave the house without a scarf, preferably one that has a hood is even better to handle the terrible weather. I really have a million scarves lying in my closet, but for some reason I always look forward to wearing my favourite burgundy red one. Still, I find this white one very nice too!

Pull & BearWell, what can I say about this item. Not very wintery, but you can never have enough black dresses in my opinion. My closet is completely full and even though they all look the same, I can not get enough of them. Black is always good. And this is also a bargain. You can understand that I have of course added this to my basket.

How to wear sneakers with dresses and skirts

I must be honest with you guys. I may not be the fittest girl around because I only started at the end of last year and nowadays I’m working out around 3 times a week. And yes, when it comes to food I also could be more dedicated to it. But hey, it’s all an process and every week I’m learning more and more about my body and getting fit. This is also the reason I’m probably not the best person with the best knowledge about sharing my view on getting fit. That’s why I’m so happy with all my fellow Fit Girls here on #FITGIRLCODE who are sharing their inspiring personal stories, tips and tricks and yummy healthy recipes. I got in touch with #FITGIRLCODE a while ago and they told me that they would love to see and read how I style sneakers in daily looks. I’m not really wearing my work-out sneakers together with my daily looks, but still my looks consist a lot of sneakers – that’s how I roll!

If you have followed my blog for a while you’d know I’ve got quite a tomboy style. Styling sneakers doesn’t sound like the hardest task for a girl like me. And yes, you’re right about that. But in this case I’ll be talking about styling those same sporty shoes in a more feminine ensemble. Like with flirty dresses or with skirts you want to twirl in. For today I’m sharing a few tips on how to wear sneakers with dresses and skirts. Because hey girls, summer is on its way!


Keep it easy!

When you’re in doubt about styling dresses or skirts with sneakers, it’s better to start easy with white kicks or a monochrome look so you can get comfortable with the silhouette and don’ have to worry about clashing colours. Similar to dressing up in general, it’s all about bringing balance in a look and considering the type of fabric of your garments with the type of shoes.



Proportions are the key.

Summer is the season to show off your body in that bodycon dress or flowy skirt. To make your look a bit more edgy or give your feet some rest, this will be the time to opt for sneakers instead of high heels. But on the other side you don’t want to make your legs look shorter. So try to avoid sneakers that will visually cut off your legs. Because we’re all trying to make them look as long as possible, right? I would advise not to wear high tops with a knee length skirt – because it will make your legs look shorter. Lower and cotton plimsolls will elongate your legs and make the proportions of your outfit look much better.
Just do it!

Although it may be against the so-called ‘fashion rules’ or people around you don’t get it – just do it! Dressing up and feeling confident in it is so much more important than fitting in and following some rules. When you feel totally comfortable in a look it will shine through in your personality and that’s what can make a look cool.
