I am fulllllly enjoying today. Just came back from a huge walk through Paris. I decided to not take a metro, but walk all the way. Never saw so many people hanging around in the park. Happiness is the exact word and description for today. I didn't even have to wear a coat. Just perfect. So today, a musthave item you definitely need during these sunnie spring days. Not only in Paris, but allll around the world. I bought these Zara sunglasses two weeks ago and they are my best friends. It's the perfect Céline look a like. Feeling uber stylish when wearing them. Oh, and tomorrow morning there will finally be there next Chanel post about the show from last Tuesday. I am sorry for that, but I am just so busy and I have to much inspiration and other things to share. Have a nice and sunnie day, and see you tomorrow morning!

#fashionmonthisover is allllll around the internet. I think everyone who attended fashion week, is sad. It's the most fabulous month of the year. Unfortunately I only made it along Paris. If I can believe the die hard FW people who go to NY, Milan, London and Paris, Paris is the best. Let's keep that in mind. The whole city is full of fashionable people, photographers, models and designers. Go and have a coffee in the most famous cafés, and you will definitely spot your it-girl or favourite blogger. Want to really go for it, like I did? Download the show planning and go to every show in town. Result? See everyone you ever dreamed of, you always spotted in magazines or the ones you followed for already several years. That's the real deal. So, I came across Sofie Valkiers from Fashionata, in Jardin des Tuileries, right before the Viktor and Rolf show. Why I spotted her? Well I saw one big pink cotton candy walking around and I had to follow it. I always have been a huge fan of her style. Always flawless and nonchalant. But this look, is by far the nicest outfit I have seen during this fashion week in Paris. This was actually the outfit I wanted to wear to Chanel for example. Why couldn't I found something like this? I don't know the brand of this pink ensemble, but Zara should make the same. JUST for me. And what about the candy clutch? It's from Christian Louboutin, and it's gorgeous. That's all I can say about it. Don't forget about the shoes. LOVE. Sofie, your outfit is made for eating. It's all about candyyyyy. For me, this is fashion.

LOOKING at this editorial makes me longing for the spring even more and more. I know I am not allowed to complain about the forecast. It has never been so good in winter. BUT, now we all know there is probably no winter coming and the spring is officially starting in a few weeks, I can't wait anymore. We are allowed to say that. This editorial is made in Brazil, in Rio de Janeiro. The perfect summer feeling vibe. Love the upper combination, the dots and stripes. Great inspiration, because I immediately have an idea. Oh and yes, I know I keep as much as money in my wallet, because India is already there in 5 months. So hurrrrrrrry up with saving money for that. Now I have to go, back to work and there is another Chanel post on the blog, sooner than you think ;)

I don't say this very often. But this was definitely the best day of my life. So far. Having an invitation for the Chanel fashion show, is already unreal. I didn't believe it. Until I had it in my hands yesterday. With shaking hands I gave it a good and safe place at home. And now, 24 hours later. It's already done. This was a dream, and it came out. When I am writing this, my body is full of chicken skin. You know, when you are cold. During the show, I was freeeeezing. If there was a photographer who photographed me during the show, he would only have a BIG SMILE on his screen. I think I was the most happiest girl this morning, under all the invites. It was unbelievable to be there. Unbelievable. Sitting right after Chiara Ferragni was already something special. Could smell her shampoo, haha. I had the best place and could see all the grocery shopping in front of me. Because yes, Karl, you are a legend. What a show. So original and interesting. No runway, 'just' one big luxe supermarket, with allllllll Chanel stuff. The best models like Cara Delevigne and Saskia de Brauw taking all the stuff from the supermarket. It was a show. A spectacle. I can write books about it. But I am speechless at the same time. Here a small impression of the 'runway', more photos from the models soon! Hope you will like it. I need to calm down and turn back to the planet. I am living in a dream.

OH MY, I love Parissssssssssss. The last couple of days were more than amazing. The sun was shining most of the time and that gave me the perfect mood. Of course there was also Fashion Week in town. That made me even more happier. Seeing Anna Dello Russo or Rihanna is still un-be-lie-ve-ble. What a chaos when Miss Riri came out of her taxi, on her way to the Comme des Garçons show. I was just a few steps away from her, in between crazy fans and photographers. I am just saying "omg" too many times during these days. It's still so strange if photographers from Vogue Germany or whatever come to you and ask you to pose for their camera. It's like you are living in a big dream world, called PFW. Today it's shopping time for tomorrow. Two big shows on the planning. I am so excited. I will pick up my personal invitation for Chanel today, aaaaahhh. One bad thing about it. The invitation is ugly. Why is Karl Lagerfeld doing that to me. My first ever invitation, and it's
so u g l y not so nice. I wanted to put it at my wall. Going to do that though. BYE BYE

LOVE at the first sight? Does is exist? I can assure you. It does. I am not speaking in terms of personal affection. I am talking about objects. And in that way it is definitely possible. When I saw this bag, my eyes were shining and happy at the same time. Those butterflies in my tummy, were flying around like they saw a stunning pink clutch. My eyes couldn't stop looking at it. It was LOVE at the first sight. I am sure. I would keep this bag with me all the time. And especially coming days. You know what's going on in Paris at the moment. I missed some days, that's too bad. But I was in Holland, for something better. Wish I discovered this bag sooner. I wanted to take it with me to one of the fashion shows. It's the perfect eye catcher when wearing a basic ensemble. And that is my idea for tomorrows shows. Please beautiful pink bag, can you fly to Paris now, so I can show you the city? I would like to do that. It was love at the first sight. For more amazing bags and clutches like this one, you should check THIS website. Hope to see you soon in Paris, or somewhere else on this planet.

Yesterday was my first day in Paris after a long holiday in Holland. Normally those first days are sad and full of missing my family. But this time it's different. Because of the Fashion Week there is no time to think about 'home'. My mind is all brainwashed. It's all about fashion. The sun was shining and Paris looked gorgeous. I enjoyed every second of yesterday. I planned to take photos the whole day, but after two shows and 400 photos, it was time to go home. I am so happy with the result and there are more days to come. It's really chaotic in the city during these kind of days. But in a nice way. I saw so many nice and well dressed people. It's so inspiring to be here and see all the madness around you. I saw a lot of my favourite bloggers. Most of them are so sweet and even more beautiful in real life. It's strange because I only know them online. But seeing them in real life is so nice. It's like I see my biggest examples walking around. I keep on dreaming, because once, my blog will be as big as they are. Let's hope it. Today I am going to the fashion show of Fahaid Sanober and I will meet Garance Doré at Colette, the concept store at Rue Saint-Honoré. She designed a collection of stationary and amazing Iphone cases. Can't wait to buy one of them. See you there Garance! Please tell me what you think of my streetstyle photos! I did more than my best. Hope you like it.

A very gooood morning from Paris. After a delay and a stressful evening, I arrived in Paris yesterday evening very late. I am still so tired and I don't even have time to be tired. Today is my first show I will visit. I am so curious for the coming days. Only went to Amsterdam Fashion Week last year. This is going to be the first time I will visit shows in Paris. And that is going to be awesome. I am more than sure. Last year I started blogging, and one year later I am visiting some shows during PFW. Always keep on dreaming and believe in yourself. I can't believe my dreams are coming out again and again. I don't have a lot time to talk nonsense, because in a few hours I have to be at the Talbot Runhof show. Follow me on instagram if you want to stay updated. I will go on with stressing, because I don't know WHAT TO WEAR ?! What to wear to your first ever PFW show?! I am so exciting.. About this post now. I saw this editorial last week and I love it. The photos are very dreamy and adventurous. Just how I am. Always dreaming and always on a big adventure. See you soon !

Goodmorning to all of you! I am enjoying my last days in Holland to the fullest. The spontaneous action last Sunday was so great. Happy we made that decision. Yesterday I was a whole day in Rotterdam, again. With my sister we had a nice lunch and we enjoyed the sun. I am sure the winter is over. The spring is more than welcome. I am totally into the light blue shades. Also this jacket is making me so happy. This is gonna be one of my fashion week key pieces. It's kind of an eye catcher and I love it. What do you think about my new sunnies? Found it at Zara in the sale?! There is still sale in Holland, incredible. Found some other amazing pieces. I can say that my 5 piece French Wardrobe is a disasterrrrrrrrrr. I bought much more. So I feel ashamed. Let's pretend I never talked about it here. Ok? It that a deal? Hope so.. In one day I go back to Paris. I have one day to be fashion-week-proof. I already went to the hairdressers. Have some highlights in my hair. They always give me the instant summer feeling. Paris I am coming!! See you veryyyyy soon.

I am back with another musthave. Saw this dotted and hairy pouch from urbanoutfitters and it catched my eyes immediately. I am kind of obsessed with dots lately. I have a new dotted bomber jacket which I will show you soon. But this pouch is more than welcome. As you allllll know, Paris Fashion Week is going to start today. Without me. I will come back to Paris Thursday night. So from Friday I will enjoy the madness in the city. I will go to some shows and I still have no clue what to wear. Can I please call that a first world problem? It feels like. This will be the first time I will see some shows. And not just a show. I am invited for the Chanel A/W 2015 fashion show. Can you believe? So it's really a first world problem right!? Coming days I will try to find something perfect to wear. It is going to be a tough job. Anyone wants to help me? This pouch is a great musthave in my eyes. Maybe I need to check this one out. I will keep you updated about Fashion Week craziness, no worries. See and speak you soon.

AHHHHH, I actually have to be at the train station now to catch my train back to Paris. BUT, I am still at home. No, I didn't miss my train. This morning I booked another ticket for Thursday so I can stay longer. This was totally not the schedule. But why not? Fashion Week can wait. I am sure. So don't walk away Anna Dello Russo. Stay a little longer Karl Lagerfeld. I won't miss your show next Tuesday. I promise to be on time for that. Can't believe I did this. I was ready to go back to Paris, but it's always good to be with friends and family. Paris, I see you soon. My apologies for my silence on the blog. But as I already said, this is more important now. When I am back in Paris, I will put all my energy in the blog. For now I have some amazing inspiration photos for you. Even if I am here and even I don't have a lot of time. I am always fulllll of inspiration. Let me know what you think about this! Have a lovely Sunday, and see you soon everyone.
