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…

Blogger Advice: taking pictures and photography tips

Blogger advice

Blog photography is a job on it’s own and man have I had a hard time learning. I still to this day am so bad at taking pictures in my own opinion. I feel like it’s a hard struggle, and we have a lot of competition these days.

Stock photo’s

You can get free picots online. I found an article about where you can get them a couple of days ago here. Personally I try not to use these pictures. Even if they are better quality then mine most of the time. I feel like I want to bring content as original as possible.

And I am so sorry this part of my blog doesn’t have pictures. I will be taking those this weekend. This diary thing wasn’t really planed btw.

If you are all about the writing and not really into photography I think it’s fine to use these sites. I don’t see any problem with using pictures as long as you give credit.

How I take my pictures

I could write a full post about this if you want me to but let me just give you some tips. The internet is full of information and I love google. It has been my photography teacher for the past year. Don’t blame google I am a slow learner haha.

BTW I use an iPhone 7 plus for all my pictures, yes I should get a camera…

Anyway I take 2 types of blog photos

Outfit shots

When taking outfit shots, know you angles! I know I sound like a Kardashian but it works I swear. I know exactly how I should be posing. It does help that I am a model, not going to lie but before I learned to pose by watching bloggers. Follow the big accounts on instagram and you will learn. I promise!

Flatlay

If you have been hanging around for some time you know how I feel about flatlay’s I even wrote a full post about them here.

If this post was helpful pleas tell me and don’t forget to comment. Aka don’t be a stranger 🙂

XOXO Lisa

How to look stylish in winter

img_3425

It’s time for me to face the facts, it’s literally freezing outside. I wish I could lie and keep wearing my favourite summer dresses all year. But that’s just not the case.

Winter feeling

Don’t get me wrong I love winter and the beautiful carpet of snow just greeting me in the morning. But I’m aways cold. The person with the blankets hidden all over the house, that’s me.

This past weeks I’ve been doing my research because I’m not going to go true winter with sweatpants and a jumper, and either should you. I’ve decided to put together a little guid on how I am acutally keeping warm and stylishimg_3405

Stick to the basics

I know I sound so old right now but just hear me out. Winter just isn’t the time for crazy prints and colours. Keep the clothes as classy as you can because those are the most convenient in cold wether. Play with your makeup, your hair and your accessories. These are the things that will bring out your personality.

“Winter just isn’t the time for crazy prints and colours.”

Over the knee boots

I have the hardest time finding boots that fit around my legs. They are always to big or just look odd on my legs. But now I’ve found a solution, sued over the knee boots. They always have a string so they will fit perfectly and snug.

Mine are just some cheap ones form a local store named close up. They don’t need to be expensive, sued and rain don’t go together and we all know that I’ll be wearing those boots in the snow. So spending €1000 just doesn’t seem justifiable in any way. Mine are €50.

Skinny black denim

I live in my black jeans, they are an essential in my wardrobe. I literally wear them to death. Not only because they are the most comfortable but also the most flattering thing. If you like wearing oversized knitwear they will help contrast it and show your shape.

The most important part of finding the right pair of black jeans is checking there thickness.  Especially in winter, you would be surprised how warm they can actually be.

You don’t always need to buy disigner denim, they just need to fit right. If you are a bit slimmer it’s good to check out Tommy Hilfiger or Pimkie (in Belgium) they’re sizes run pretty small and are high wasted.

How to improve your work epic

We all work hard but if efficacy is the key how do we get there?

Plan it out

So there are a million ways to plan your life and to see exactly what you are going to do that day. You can use agendas, journals, iPads… But the most important thing is to work your way true the day.

Life is monopoly

Work with the cards you’ve got and make them as great as you can. Don’t ever sit and be jealous of other peoples advantages in the game, you are the one that has to make it great for yourself not for someone els.

Be stratigic

Think of life as a perfectly thought out plan, even if things don’t always work your way, change yourself to suit them. Change the moment to make ti e
