Happy Sunday! As you’ve probably already noticed, today’s article is an outfit post. And I’m kind of excited for this one, because it’s all about my newest purchase: the coolest pair of wide trousers with tiny stars all over it!

Last week I scrolled trough the sale section at hm.com, when this eye-catcher passed by with 70% off! You’ll probably understand that I had to buy it.

A wide trouser could be seen as a difficult garment, because you have to be careful that it doesn’t get too clumsy. But, it’s not so hard to avoid that. The golden tip for wearing wide trousers is to combine them with a tighter (and plain - if your trousers are printed) piece of clothing. In that way, you don’t become a shapeless bag and all the focus is on the trousers.

Because of the lightweight fabric, the trousers are perfect for those chilly summer days next season. For example, combined with a simple white T-shirt and a pair of white slip-ons or espadrille wedges underneath it.
But also when you live in Holland where the summer takes a long time to show itself, you can wear these trousers. To toughen them a bit up, I’ve decided to combine it with a black long-sleeved rib top and - one of my favorite pieces from my wardrobe - my leather jacket from Zara. On my feet, I wore my new chelsea boots from Vagabond, which I absolutely love! Soon more about them on the blog. For now, thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment below!

How To Create The Perfect Ear Party?

#EARPARTY. I’m sure you’re familiar with this hashtag. If not, I wonder where you’ve been in the past few months. Because the trend this hashtag is linked to, is hotter than hot. On Instagram and other kinds of social media, tons of pictures of the most beautiful ear party’s are passing by. The entire female half of the population exchanges their bald earlobes for ears, which are fully decorated, with many tiny minimalistic earrings. Moi incluse!

But how do you create the perfect ear party? That’s what I want to talk about in this article.

Creating an ear party consists of two steps. The first step is the place. This is the basis. Remember: asymmetry is the key. Go all crazy with one ear - make it its own little party - while you keep the other ear simple. In that way, it won’t get to shriek. For example, in my right ear I have three holes, which I vary with different kinds of golden earrings, ranging in size. In my other ear I have just one hole, with only a simple golden dot stud earring in it.

The second and last step is the most important. Because without the jewelry, there wouldn’t be any ear party at all. The simplicity of the jewelry is necessarily. You want to wear minimalistic and fragile jewelry which can easily be combined with each other. Play with different sizes. For example: combine one slightly prominent earring with two smaller ones. I recommend purchasing two simple dot stud earrings, because you can combine them very well.

Et voila! Let the ear party begin!

LIFESAVERS: The Best Moisturizer for Dry Hands

Luckily, the cold season has been over for a while now, but unfortunately our skin needs some time to recover from it. I myself experience that mainly with my hands. During the cold days my hands aren’t happy, no matter how much I take care of them. It’s hard to find the right moisturizing cream that can repair the damage. It can cost you tons of money.
But, if you’re one of the unfortunate with extreme dry hands (including myself), it’s you’re lucky day. Because I’ve found the cure!

The cure is where you wouldn’t expect it to be. It’s not some expensive liniment or some exclusive ointment, but this moisturizer can be found in nearly every home. I’m talking about the Dove Nourishment Cream. Doesn’t it ring any bells? You probably know what I mean when I say it’s the white cream in the blue-white tin.

Who would have thought that this simple moisturizing cream would be so effective, when it’s not specifically meant for dry hands? The white cream isn’t greasy, but soaks in really slowly. Unlike any other moisturizers I’ve tried, it won’t just vanish into your skin. And therefore it’s so good! I’ve rubbed it for quite a couple of months now every night before I go to sleep on my hands. The next day they’re baby soft, well hydrated and no longer any trace of dryness. Besides, this cream smells really good! And all that just for €2,-.

If you haven’t got it already, I would say; run ASAP to your nearest drugstore!
