How to keep white clothes white naturally

Am I the only one that finds white to be such a high maintenance color? I love wearing white clothes, but I loathe when they lose their brightness and turn yellowish. After all, white is supposed to stay fresh and crisp. Growing up I remember that my mom used to soak white clothes in bleach before she washed them. While bleach definitely does the work, I’m all about finding other solutions that will give me the same result. To Whiten…

Things to do in Giethoorn

Do you remember my all white outfit from our trip to Giethoorn? I mentioned that I wanted to make a travel post and share all the things to do in Giethoorn. It’s a place that is worth visiting because it’s such a unique destination. Where is Giethoorn you say? And why should I go there? Located in northern Holland, Giethoorn is known for being the Venice of the Netherlands. Water surrounds this tiny village, and you can only go around…

Summer Stripes

Is there anything that says summer better than stripes? How about summer stripes? Have I talked about my obsession with stripes? If I haven’t now is a good time to mention that I love stripes everything – tops, skirts, and swimsuits of course. I think there’s always at least a couple of new pieces I buy each year in stripes. One piece swimsuits are such a classic look for the summer. Most of all, one piece swimsuits are so comfortable…

Travel to Cologne, Germany + Burg Castle

Cologne Germany

The first time I visited Germany I was still a teenager. I traveled to Frankfurt, Germany where I quickly fell in love with the city’s organized look and spotless streets. I had strong hopes of living there someday. Although this didn’t happen, I was more than excited to take a trip with the family to Cologne, Germany. Funny story, right after we decided to take this trip my husband lost his drivers license, so I drove the whole family (sounds…

White on white look

Wearing an all white outfit is one of my favorite combinations for spring and summer. It is classic and simple, and it looks good on anyone. A few weeks ago, we took a trip to Giethoorn, and I wanted to wear clothes that are comfortable and appropriate for the hot weather that day. A white pleated chiffon skirt and a white cami (also seen in “Blue Pelmet Skirt” post last week) were the right choice. The light and slick texture of…

Blue Pelmet Skirt

Blue Pelmet Skirt

One thing that is crucial to me when I’m picking an outfit, is comfort. Because no matter how pretty something is, if it doesn’t feel right it’s not for me. I was a bit hesitant to order this pelmet skirt online because I’ve never bought anything from River Island before. My main concern was the length, I was afraid it might be too short. When I went to their store in the Hague and looked for the skirt, I couldn’t…

Braided Hairstyles

I’ve always loved braids and cute braided hairstyles. There’s something truly feminine, girly and elegant about them and even though I’ve never been quite good at doing braids, I like looking at tutorials and experimenting with my hair. Have you every seen a hair tutorial online that looks amazing but it just doesn’t work for your hair? I think we all have. I will often try to do a hairstyle and ignore the fact that the girl in the tutorial…
