MY FIRST 3 FALL SHOPPING PIECES I AM ALREADY WEARING!

Since we have to put up with the fact that summer doesn’t last forever, if you, like me, live in the Netherlands.. One of the good things is the arrivals of the new collections so we can start the fall shopping! Scotch & Soda is always one of the first stores I check when shopping for early new season. I love the relaxed vibe at the same time with edgy details.

I styled the 3 pieces I suggest picking up now before they sell out and if you keep reading, I am going to show you how to start incorporating them into your current summer closet!

What I like the most about this look, is the contrast with this very feminine ruffle top paired with a tomboy sporty bomber jacket for an everyday casual chic look.

  1. High rise jeans: My denim collection is becoming ridiculously big but I always have space for new jeans in my wardrobe. Especially if they are high rise and with some sort of edgy details, like this asymmetrical hem. High rise jeans have been going strong lately and they’re here to stay.. so, if you haven’t bought a pair yet, I say do and don’t delay! This denim cut is going to make all your outfits look on trend and it’s the first thing you can’t miss out during fall shopping.

Off white ultra feminine blouse: White it really is the new black! In summer AND winter! There’s nothing as refreshing for your wardrobe as adding a piece which is new season but you don’t have to wait for cold days to be worn. This blouse makes the perfect feminine piece to match to a full white look, an evening dressy outfit or a summer look with denim shorts! Fall shopping doesn’t mean waiting for cold weather.. It’s nice to incorporate new season light pieces that we enjoy immediately and carry on wearing towards the new season.   nickyinsideout - scotch & soda - fall shopping - high rise denim - bomber jacket - feminine blouse - street style - inspiration 3. Bomber jacket: This outwear piece is exactly the kind of statement jacket you want in your wardrobe! It’s perfect to be throw on any basic and casual outfit and immediately would make your look much more interesting! Plus, the colour is super easy to match!   nickyinsideout - scotch & soda - fall shopping - high rise denim - bomber jacket - feminine blouse - street style - inspiration   nickyinsideout - scotch & soda - fall shopping - high rise denim - bomber jacket - feminine blouse - street style - inspiration     nickyinsideout - scotch & soda - fall shopping - high rise denim - bomber jacket - feminine blouse - street style - inspiration   nickyinsideout - scotch & soda - fall shopping - high rise denim - bomber jacket - feminine blouse - street style - inspiration

TOP 5 PINK SS17 PIECES FROM SOMEONE WHO HARDLY WEARS PINK

We’ve almost made it to summer (yayy!), and so it’s time to think what we will be wearing on holiday and those long summer days. You know I hardly wear colours but this SS17 got me to love some pink splashes here and there.

I thought of rounding up for you the 5 top pink accessories I am loving at the moment.. by someone who hardly, or I can say never, wears girly pieces and bright colours.

  nickyinsideout - ss17 - pink - street style - inspiration - pink accessories  
  1. SEE BY CHLOE POLLY MINI BAG: One of my latest addition to my bags collection and wearing it in this post. It’s a little pop on pink in my spring/summer looks and loving the trendy metal rings and tassels at the front. I got mine from Shopbop.
  2. GANNI LINFIELD TEE: Already on my wish list and can’t wait to wear it with denim shorts on those hot beach days. The pink faded peach print adds charm and cool touch to the simplest look!
  3. ACNE STUDIOS AMINA NAPPA SLIDES: These flats would be mine already but couldn’t find them in my size yet! The style is so minimalistic that actually allow the pink colour and still makes you not too girlie! Loving the fold-over heel cap that can be worn up or down.
  4. RIVER ISLAND FAUX FUR SNAFFLE BACKLESS LOAFERS: I was wearing these in one of my latest blog post (here) and still going strong!
  5. MUSTANG PINK SUNGLASSES: this is a style I love seeing on other girls but unfortunately doesn’t work with my hair and skin colours.. you have to try them on and hopefully they work on you because they’re really cool!!

I had in mind to create an art gallery wall for quite some time now. Finally I got my hands on it and I couldn’t be happier with the result!

I did some research and fell in love with the vast range of choices at Desenio. I love the fact I could also shop the different frames on their website. What was stopping me before it was the idea of having to browse and shop on so many different websites.. The idea appeared chaotic and not so appealing. On Desenio I could space from fashion posters to botanic, from world and city maps to quotes posters. Exactly the ‘cocktail’ I wanted for my art gallery wall. On top of it, I chose different colours frames in black, white and gold to spice it up a bit!

I found out creating an art gallery wall is the perfect way to make a personal statement at home, expressing who I am and what I like. Like the prada poster and cactus photo mixed with the black and white world map and quote print. I could simply space out between all the things I am passionate about. I want to see them every day and know I will not be bored of them! Finally I loved combining the different sizing, I feel it makes it more interesting and less perfectionist!

Today Desenio gave me the opportunity to help you build your own art gallery wall! You can shop on Desenio with a 25% off!! Use this code at check-out: nickyinsideout (valid 2nd-4th May only on posters). Now you can use your creativity and I can’t wait to hear what’s your favourite posters and see what you will create!!

CLOSET CLEAN OUT: WHAT GOES AND WHAT COMES IN!

Normally Easter period means to me going through my closet and do a big closet clean out to decide what to toss from the previous seasons. Obviously to make space for new summer clothes!

It can be difficult to let go of pretty things that once made our heart flutter.. Am I right?!

Let’s be realistic, this is not always an exciting task. There are better ways of spending a spring day off than being overwhelmed by our closet clean out. First step for a ‘successful operation’? Having clear in mind what we want to be wearing the coming season. Especially what we don’t want to be wearing any longer!

The main thing I will be tossing this season is skinny jeans! As a jeans obsessed person as I am – I wear jeans 7 days a week! – denim is literally my life partner.  At the moment I am all about high waisted, straight and wide fits like these white denim culottes from Opus. I’ve been wearing culottes since they first came out and it was one of those love-at-first-sight trend which became part of my personal style, especially over the warm months.

My current passion for loose shapes extends to the tops too! Besides a big passion for statement t-shirts, I am going to make space in my closet for light coloured off and cold shoulders, bell sleeves, ruffles and loose shirts like this one, also from Opus, I am wearing today. Specifically this is very versatile and I wear it both boat neck and off shoulder. It’s the perfect piece to pack for summer holidays!

Finally, the verdict of my seasonal closet clean out is going to be all about ‘out’ the tight and skinny shapes to make room for soft and loose pieces. I just find them much more chic and flattering.

What about you? I am curious to hear what’s going to be your favourite summer style..

TOP 5 GINGHAM PIECES FOR SPRING

Happy Sunday! Just ten days left before our holiday to the Canary Islands and I am going to have a very packed week in Amsterdam filled with meetings and deadlines. I just can’t wait to be enjoying the warm weather and the beach!

It’s been warmer the past week and I can’t wait to put away my winter coats! Honestly, I can only think of spring/summer trends at the moment. Gingham is a very big trend this spring and I have already worn this top in February during a party at London fashion week and I am still in love with it. I have lined up for you my favourite top 5 pieces!

nickyinsideout - gingham - shopping - spring/summer - street style - inspiration   nickyinsideout - gingham - shopping - spring/summer - street style - inspiration   nickyinsideout - gingham - shopping - spring/summer - street style - inspiration   These are my top 5 gingham picks:
  1. RIVER ISLAND: This is the top I am wearing. Loving the ruffle sleeves and the front bow.
  2. MADEWELL: Loving the voluminous off-shoulder cut of this top, and the ruffled elastic neckline.
  3. VETIVER: Gingham is a big trend in dresses and skirts this season too and I am definitely falling for these! Both pieces from Madewell and Vetiver are from Shopbop, they have quite a good gingham selection! Some pieces even on sale!
  4. TOPSHOP: Gingham trousers are becoming a must have for spring. These ones with the frill hem are way too cute! Just make sure to wear them with something not too girly or it might be difficult to pull out a good look. I would opt for a grey sweater or a plain white t-shirt.
  5. ASOS: Since my mind is already on a sunny holiday mood, I must take a look to gingham bikinis of course! This bardot one is perfection!
