How to pull of white jeans like a boss

White jeans

My love for white jeans has always been a thing. As a kid I had a pear of military white jeans I wore in the snow. I remember all the girls turning heads and just looking at me with fear in there eyes. Giving me the shuttle hit that white pants are only acceptable in summer. I am hear to tell you that that’s not true! White pants can be worn whenever and however you want them. Just remember to do it right and as you guessed it, I’ve got some tricks up my sleeve.

Know your size

I know this is pretty obvious but seriously know your size ladies. I had a hard time with this myself. Finding jeans that fit perfect isn’t easy so don’t expect to find the perfect ones that one time you go shopping. It takes me forever to go jeans shopping and that’s okay! I like taking my time to walk out of the store completely satisfied.

And ask for help. I was that person to afraid to ask for help form anyone. Honestly the people in the store are there to help you. In whatever store you are going to, Channel or H&M they are basically doing the same job. So if you can’t find what you want ASK.

Underwear

You know I needed to say this. But I am never ever going to walk out the door wearing white jeans and red underwear. I mean that’s kind of obvious but I know sometimes when you are in a hurry you forget. Just remember to actually wear nude or white underwear when you’re wearing white jeans seriously. TMI but I got your back.

Balance

This is a rule for the less adventurous fashionistas who aren’t going to go monochrome just jet. Believe me I hear you. Try to wear a dark top to balance out the outfit. It looks way more put together trust me.

And for all the ladies with the bigger boobs, it makes everything look in proportion with is exactly what you want. I like wearing darker tops for exactly that reason even if I have a hourglass figure you know I am bigger up there.

Long coat

For the girls with the big butts. Or people like me who think they have a big butt… Let’s not talk about that shall we. Anyway wearing a long coat over a pair of white pants can give that extra inch of sophistication and actually make you feel better about my butt. I feel like it adds some class to an otherwise casual outfit.

If you are on the shorter side, long coats actually make you look a lot taller too. I know, I am pretty tall but I like looking even taller…

Look expensive all the time

Look expensive

Let’s face it we all want to look expensive some times. Even if it is just to impress someone. Not because it’s your ultimate goal in life or whatever but just because you can.

Inch of skin

This is what I love about people like Taylor Swift. Not showing to much but just enough to be sexy and expensive. Showing to much skin can make you look really cheap really quickly.

Plane and simple

Keeping things simple can make you look expensive. The plainer the better, end the better the fabric, even more amazing! Don’t where crazy prints if you want to look expensive. Think about it all the t-shirts with the big logos just scream in your face when really expensive things have the table on the inside.

Details

It’s all about the details. Even if my dress is from zara and my coat from H&M, I paid close attention to details. The coats is made form a luxurious feeling fabric that is so soft and snuggly. Lace details make the dress look way more expensive then it actually is.

Same thing with the shoes. You guys know how I feel about suede shoes and my fear of them getting ruined. To be honest maybe I’ll get a designer pair in the future… We will see haha. But these where only €20 in the sale I mean come on!!!! that’s just amazing.

Mix with designer

This is totally optional but I love doing this. Mixing my high street with my designer pieces. My designer bag and scarf really dress up my outfit and give it that up scale vibe. I just love doing that to looks. Not everything needs to be designer honestly no one can afford that and the people that can don’t even do it. Even stars like Beyoncé wear clothes from zara and H&M as long as you know what you should buy expensive and what you should buy cheap you will always you expensive!

How I got my motivation back

Motivation

I’ve been blogging for almost a year now and I really love what I do but am I doing this right? It’s a question I ask myself a lot. I wrote a post about bettering yourself and doing good but the question always is am I? I am a serious self critic as you guys know. Perfectionism is part of me and how I am as a person. Looking at what some people are putting up on the internet I feel like my content isn’t getting out there enough.

Jumper dress obsession

I know I’m not the first or the last fashion/style blogger to talk about this.But finding the right jumper dress is so freaking hard! Just because I’m very specific when I buy clothes, I know what I want.

If you have been following me for some time you know I make my list with exactly what I want. But this has been on my radar for ever, so when I saw it I physically couldn’t leave it.

I’ll be honest with y’all I love the trend but I’m kind of afraid to buy a high end jumper dress. I don’t know if it will stay trendy. That’s way I didn’t wanted a high street version. But you know me I had a vision in my head.

I wanted knitted, white, warm and it had to be oversized. So finally I found it.

It’s exactly what I wanted!

hipsters – sweater dress

zara – bag

boots – close up

How I became a catwalk model

Life’s been crazy. Okay maybe i’ve gone made you can decide 😀

These past weeks have been such an amazing experience. So let me share what I’ve actually been doing.

Modeling

Oooo yes, I’m a real model now. Let me explain how I got there because this is quit a story. I should be making a story time on this, maybe soon for youtube…

So I was walking with my family on the street and complaining because I wanted to eat vegan and they wanted to go to another part of town.

So me being the grumpy ass hole I can be when I’m hungry, dragging my feet and making a face I imagine a murderer makes. We walk around the block and all of a sudden I don’t know why but I just feel like showing of my jacket.

I’m walking feeling myself and two amazing looking women walk towards me and my mum. Yvon (instagram @yvoirederosen) and Cerina (instagram @derosencerina) run out of a restaurant and are explaining themselves. And my dad being himself is like “we aren’t buying anything”. And they start to explain and talk about the fashion show. I quickly got a card and a location for the next morning.

The next morning my mum drags me out of bad with a big smile on her face and she’s like, you are going love. I was not prepared in any way but let’s just say I had my starbucks and lots of nerves.

This was THE day I learned to walk in stilettos and the rest is history. Just kidding the truth is I died I’m not a natural. I was in pain!

But now I can actually call myself a pro.

Subscribe for all of the sexy stuff that goes on backstage 😀

I will be sharing the crazy the awkward and the friends I made along the way.

stWalk, be confident, look amazing…  Hills don’t need to kill if you have the right posture. I’ve just started catwalk modelling and I’m letting you in on the secrets.

Make yourself taller

Think someone is pulling you on a string. Your hole body should be straight and up.

Butt in, stomach in chest out

This position seems unnatural but that’s what makes you stay put even in stilettos. Remember flot it

Look up

Keep your neck up and look at one point. Be confident and keep that head high dear.

Be confident

How to style a scarf

Scarfs are the most underestimated accessory out there.  It’s not just something you can tie around your neck, and all the cool girls are rocking it in so many different ways this summer.

As a little girl my grandmother owned so many scarfs. I don’t think I can think of a day she wasn’t wearing one. From Hermes to H&M she had it. This has shaped my style so much.

The headband scarf

Wearing a scarf as a headband can be very trendy and chic. It can add that pop of culler when you are wearing a simple summer dress. Especially if you are tie your hear in a bun it can be an awesome look with a bit of a romantic vibe.

The belt scarf

This is one of the best things for people like me who always loose belts. Just like the headband scarf it adds a pop of colour and is very practical. If you are travelling this is very useful as you don’t need to remove it passing true customs. And don’t forget it’s light weight so it won’t way down you suitcase like some belts can.

The bracelet scarf

This one is really fun, wearing a bracelet as a scarf just screams Paris to me. It’s a great way to make your casual outfit feel just as glamours as a cocktail dress.

Flawless when traveling 

We have all had those moments that we come out of a plain, car or train looking like crap. The crazy cat lady look isn’t cute even if you have been on a plain for 12 hours. The world isn’t that forgiving.

The outfit

Round trip ready 

If you are adventurous and feel like driving where the wind takes you, you need an outfit to match. Layback, casual and sexy that’s exactly what you need. I would go for a play suit. It’s casual, sexy and fashionable. The reason why this would be perfect is because it’s comfortable. The accessories I would go for are a backpack.. The backpack will give you that layback vibe. And as far as jewelry goes, keep it simple. Just to make it easy for in the evenings. If you haven’t ever slept wearing statement earnings don’t try it trust me!

The flying girl

You need to look chic and emigrant coming out of that plain! You would be surprised what type of amazing people you can meet on an airport! The outfit you choose should not only be comfortable for travel it should look as classy as possible. I would go for a pull neck and some thermostatic leggings.  It is freezing in the plain and you don’t want to wear a hoody do you?  As for the leggings, if you don’t own any get them! If they become your favorite thing and get surgically attached to your legs (lol) I’ll take responsibility.

The shoes

Flat shoes, always flat shoes. I would chose flat ankle boots. Or a plain pare of sneakers, preferably one colour.

The makeup 

Makeup should be minimal don’t go crazy! I recommend keeping it simple, a mascara, eyebrow pencil, lipstick,  and eye cream. Remember it should be makeup you can even wear on your seat!
