OUTFIT / So fluffy

Okay… what do you do when stepping out of bed in the morning and already feeling like you haven’t slept in weeks?

It’s simple as hell: you put on the most comfortable and soft sweater you have at the moment, combined with the best trousers. Lately, I’m wearing this tartan pants very often. But let’s be honest; what’s not to love about them?
I was thankful for having this sweater in my closet. Even though people call me a polar bear or fluffy animal, because of the fabric… I will always love it. Feeling warm already by the look at it.

INSPIRATION / trends spring 2014

As from today I will start a weekly Inspiration post on Mondays. In this first Inspiration post it’s about the upcoming trends for spring 2014. When I saw the runway looks, I thought it would be nice to share some pics which I totally love. Those are the looks I get inspired by and I hope it will inspire you to. Let’s all enjoy fashion!!

Personally, I’m a huge fan of 3.1. Phillip Lim and  I love the simplicity of the looks from the Victoria Beckham show in Paris. The colors black, white and red, great combination! The sports trend is catching my eye also.

You want it, you buy it

Everyone knows the feeling of seeing a something and wanting it really really bad. Like I saw this sweatshirt and I had to have it! It was like falling in love and it swept me of my feet. Oh.. and I saw that leather skirt by accident, now it’s mine.

It’s so easy to buy things, but it’s the art of combining fabrics and colours. I like to combine the skirt with a sweater for a nonchalant look, to create the Sunday afternoon-effect. But the skirt can be chic if wearing it with a nice blouse and some high heels.

Which one do you prefer?

2014

Of course the subject for today’s post was pretty clear: New Year’s Eve, going from 2013 to 2014.
Yesterday at 7 am, I was already in the New Year’s Eve-mood. I’m exited to start the new year with my loved ones and I’m looking forward to all the new adventures and experiences in 2014. Not so long ago I created this brand new blog and I hope a lot of good things will happen to ECILP in 2014.

Happy new year everyone!!

WEARING: Ted Baker dress, Zara sweater, Wolford tights.

In the name of Jewelry

I think fashion will always be a combination of clothes and jewelry. Jewelry is the little piece of art that makes an outfit complete. Jewelry is about details. It’s about that little surprise when you look at the outfit of someone and you spot that beautiful necklace or that eye-catching ring; it’s like the cherry on the pie.

Through the years I’ve collected a lot of those little pieces of art (actually, I think I will never stop collecting them). When I opened my Christmas present I got really exited, because now I can display my favorites at this beautiful étagère.

Christmas times

Ladies and gentleman, I’m back in business. Do I need to introduce myself again?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, as we hear Andy Williams sing every year. And I have to admit, he’s right. Most of the times. When it’s snowing and you’re not stuck in traffic, for example. That’s when I can really enjoy this time of the year. It’s like the 1st of December is a start shot to create the perfect Christmas Look.

I think I succeeded. You’ll find some outfit details below.

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Lazy Sunday

Oh how I love a Sunday afternoon, without any plans. On Saturdays most people are busy with things they couldn’t find time for during the week. And with things I mean grocery shopping and studying… Okay, well that last one is only meant for persons who are studying next to their jobs…

Anyways, this day will be my Sunday-without-any-plans. Just reading a good book And what is better than enjoying the day in comfortable fake fur. Boyfriends don’t like it and I simply don’t understand. Who doesn’t love fake fur?! I’m mixing it with fabrics like velvet and cotton.

Happy Sunday!!

Guilty pleasure

My friend, Audrey Hepburn once said: ‘Paris is always a good idea’. Now that is a true story. In addition to Paris, shopping is also a very good idea. It’s the best remedy when feeling down or even when you’re feeling perfectly fine. I was having my guilty pleasure evening last Tuesday. After work I went to a member evening at De Bijenkorf in Amsterdam. Together with my mom, we searched trough the whole store. And I can tell you; during a shopping session, my mom and I are the perfect team. And just when I was giving up hope finding a nice piece for my winter collection, my eyes caught this beauty from Sandro. So even when I’m not in Paris, I now keep a little bit of Paris in my closet.
