|EN: At this moment, we're still ejoying a nice Indian summer in the Netherlands, but fall will kick in sooner or later. So, time to start looking at nice shoes for fall and winter! In my case, a rather necessary search, as I recently discovered that about 90% of my shoes have peep toes. Great to wear in summer of course, but less practical in fall and winter. Although you can still wear them in fall with some cute lace socks in them, like I discussed in this trend article. Anyway, it's always fun to see what beauties we might be able to wear on our feet in the next season! In this post, I'm showing you 9 pairs of fall shoes from Intreza, which I would all love to decorate my feet with!|

|EN: Recenlty, both me and Simone sorted out our wardrobe and then browsed through each others 'throw away' pile. One of the items I picked from hers, is this beautiful red midi skirt! In this outfit, I combined it with another semi-new item; the frilled polka dot blouse, which I got at a flea market. It's a very summerish outfit again, because the Dutch weather has been spoling us with a nice Indian summer! Woohoo! What do you think of the first shot, by the way? I love it so much! The skirt is just flowing perfectly!|
P.S. There's a poll in the side bar. I would love to know whether or not you would like to see video's on my blog and, if so, what kind!

|EN: A while ago, I received an e-mail from Treatwell, aksing whether I would like to test their service for my blog by undergoing a treatment of my choice. I loved too! As you might have noticed, I always wear bright red nail polish, so I thought it would be fun to get a treatment for that. I had heard a lot of good stories about the so called gel polish manicure. For this manicure, they use a special type of nail polish, which has to dry underneath a UV lamp. The nail polish is said to remain for up to 3 weeks! That sounded like something for me! Last wednesday, I got my nails done at Jordaan Skincare, and I'm very happy with the result! Until today, it still looks nearly perfect and it's now 5 days ago I got it done. Below, you can see how my nails looked one day after they were done. I will share an update later to tell you how long my nails remained to be pretty. In this post, I'm telling you a little more about Treatwell, I'm showing you what the Jordaan Skincare salon looks like and I will tell you about the other treatments I got done. Because, I really got spoiled!|

|EN: Since I moved to a new place and I rediscovered a lot of items which I had totally forgotten about, I decided to try to combine these items into outfits more often. One of those items is this silk scarf. I've had it for ages and in all that time I probably only wore it once and then, it disappeared to the back of my closet. In this outfit, I think it really comes into its own! It spices up the simple black dress, and the dark blue color also looks very good with my beloved pops of red! What do you think of the outfit I made with this scarf?|

|EN: A trend for upcoming fall which I'm personally very enthusiastic about is that of socks in sandals. I'm talking about cute socks in preferably high heeled sandals here! It's often looked at as a big fashion faux pas and, when talking about hiking sandals with sport socks, I totally agree. In the case of cute socks with a nice print, texture or lace worn in lovely heeled sandals, I think it goes and it can even give a nice twist to your outfit! Ever since I saw it in the FW15 show of Spijkers & Spijkers, I've been a fan! And now it's finally time to start thinking about nice fall outfits to create with socks in sandals! Isn't it just amazing to be able to wear your summer sandals just a little longer? Think about it! I already gave it a shot in this spring outfit I posted a while ago and I'm sure going to try it again this fall! I've never been more excited to go buy some new pairs of socks! Are you going to try this trend?|

|EN: How was your weekend? I went to the festival Rock 'n Roll Street on the Dutch Wadden island of Terschelling! Together with my boyfriend and our rock 'n roll club, we stayed in a farm house. It was so much fun! I didn't take my camera with me, because I was afraid it would break or get stolen, but I did take some shots with my phone, which you can find on my Instagram! This outfit is from before the weekend. Like I mentioned in my shoplog video, I bought the top and shorts in the Zara sale and immediately thought they would look great together in an outfit. So, I started my outfit with the top and shorts and then decided it would also be fun to wear my new suede boots from the vintage per kilo event with it. Altogether this outfit now contains about 90% new items! The total look turned out to be somewhat different than what I usually wear, but I do really like it! To make it more 'me', I combined it with my favorite red purse and earrings! What do you think of this outfit?|
