Fall is just around the corner and even though I love summer with it's hot temperatures, the beach, holidays and the tan you get from it all, I love that time of the year when you feel it's slightly getting colder and Christmas is getting a little bit closer. 

weekend attire

This weekend I tried to find some time in between all the madness from school/events/work to see the boyfriend again. Nothing fancy, just cooking a pasta dinner together and watch Disney movies on the couch: I really needed that. As for the outfit, I thought that this 'weekend attire' was very appropriate for the situation (as was the 'just got out if the shower' hair). Have a great weekend!

anna dello russo for h&m

Ph. by me and Vogue UK

If you say Anna Dello Russo, you say fashion. The editor-at-large (can you get a cooler title?!) for Vogue Japan is well known for her eccentric style - or as Helmut Newton puts it, a 'fashion maniac' - and was one of the first editors to be featured on streetstyle blogs. I personally love her work and the fact that she never let's anyone dictate her on what to wear. She goes all out every single time and strangely enough it never looks overdone. It fits her and her personality perfectly and I really appreciate that: people who, no matter what, stay close to themselves and their own ideas. When H&M announced that they were collaborating with the Italian diva, I immediately found myself curious. ADR's thoughts:

"I am excited by this collaboration - it's the first time H&M has involved a fashion director in a special project. This is the sign of an important evolution in fashion, and I am both thrilled and humbled to be the one chosen to lead it. I wanted to create precious accessories that are impossible to find.  As a stylist I know accessorizing is essential - it is the personal touch to any outfit. With these pieces everybody can have fun, turning an ordinary day into a fantastic fashion day."

The items will be in stores October 4th, less than a month away. Will you be camping outside?

ti amo italia

Ph. by me and Nick Zijlstra

I got back from my holiday to Italy yesterday and though it's good to be home again, I'm glad I had a week off to relax. Today is my last day before school, work and everything else (in short: real life) starts again and I feel like I'm ready for new challenges! Italy was hot (36 degrees to be exact), beautiful and nice. These pictures give you a small impression of my week, which included a trip to Pisa, Florence (which I'm definitely going to visit again), Cinque Terre and the beach.
