When my hair was still long two and a half weeks ago my best friend asked if I wanted to go with her on a work trip to Maastricht. I had never been there and was exited to go. As a beach girl this is one of those places in small Holland I don’t visit very often.
We explored the medieval centre of the city which to our surprise has very nice shops. And ofcourse we ate the local specialty ‘vlaai’ (fruit pie). The Beaumont Hotel we stayed in was very nice and has excellent rooms and service. It is just a 5 minute walk from the city centre and crossing the famous Maastricht brigde gives a the city a nice old feel. While having fun I was wearing my h&m hat, zara coat, and my new favorite UGG boots. I am super happy with my new winter coat. I needed a new sophisticated coat and I happend to run into one of them in Zara.
Also I am looking forward to Paris next week with the boyfriend! Roaming the streets of ‘Les Marais’ and eating amazing pastry. More on that later.
Check out these nice beanies I got from brunotti. Some who follow me on Instagram may have seen I have been to the hairdressers more on that later. You curious yet? And also I have an older post about Maastricht waiting for you guys. So what is your favorite beanie style for this winter?
I am also trying to find and a new winter hat. One with a stiff rim instead of this flowing one.
Sometimes I wish I lived somewhere in the tropics with waves and wind everyday. But on the other hand the change of seasons is also very special! Who doesn’t like to bundle up in in a blanket on the couch with a big cup of tea after a nice walk through the woods. Loving my Brunotti fleece for these kind of activity’s!
And now weekends over back to work!

What else is crossing my mind a lot lately besides work, kitesurfing and a 5 piece wardrobe is cutting my hair. Recently I just cut of a few centimeters and the length is just over shoulder. I am not completely satisfied and now I am thinking about going really short. I already posted this image on my pinterest board. But this cut in haunting me. I already had short hair a couple of years ago which I really liked. Unfortunately it took me ages to grow it back to this lenght. And that is scaring me… What do you think? Make the cut or not?
One can never go wrong with a little bit of leopard. Since I was a kid I am a huge fan of cobalt blue. Wearing a boyfriend jeans with a super blue oversized blazer and a boyish beanie. Underneath all that leopard loafers.

So which winter items are going over in your mind? Again and again and again. Or maybe you re not thinking about you winter wardrobe at all because you don’t need anything new.
What do I need this winter? Do I need anything at all?
All long wool coat, comfy knits, A long knit or a jumper? Jeans? Baggy or Skinny? Every season I think about what to get with in mind the things I already own and what to combine it with. What additions do I need and what can I combine it with that I already own. I am not the kind of girl that has a new wardrobe every season. I love to wear my pieces over and over again. Also from an environmental perspective I think it is better to buy a few good key items rather then filling up you closit with stuff you don’t wear. My wardrobe is all about functionality. I am a outdoor girl. I live on the beach, dunes and in the forest. I need clothes that keep me warm are easy to be active in and keep me dry from rain. Before I buy anything a lot of thing cross my mind. Do I need it? What materials is it made of? Will it last? What is the quality?
Only then maybe only then it can enter my small collection of style.
Currently on my mind…. A big wool coat.
So yes on my blog you will find the same items over and over again. But I don’t mind. It is just my style.

Nothing better than wearing your boyfriends clothes so here is an other one! Me wearing my boyfriends COS shirt. Love it! Paired with a simple skinny, my monster teva originals and a bag I got as a present from Marocco.
You got to enjoy the warm weather while we still can! Have fun this weekend and remember to play outside! Lots of things going on this weekend. Kite Tour Europe and boardchicks in my backyard and also going to Mud Masters for work! Get busy!
Thank you Brunotti for these awesome fw13 products! Can’t wait to wear them. But first let’s soak up some sun this weekend
A short while ago photographer Denni van Huis asked me if I wanted to help him with a run shoot. The answer was a big YES and a what great motivation to pick up my running again! Because I really need to start working out more. Sitting in an office everyday does no good to the body…
So my goal for this month is to hit the 10k mark again and surf and kitesurf as much as possible since the days are getting shorter and the water is getting colder.
Check out more of his amazing shots on http://www.stocksy.com/denni where you can buy his cool shots. More of his coolness on denni.nl
Love this pink gold dipped necklace I got from my sister. I wear it almost everyday! Since I am allergic to almost all metals except silver and gold, buying me fake jewelry is a no no I can not be fooled!
