OOTD: Zizzi In Spring

As I continue to enjoy the Spring season, I took some pictures a while ago of my Outfit Of The Day (OOTD) wearing Zizzi Fashion. For the years I have been blogging about fashion and life-style, I have written several blog post about the fashion brand, Zizzi Fashion (link here). And up to this day it still it remains one of my favourite stores to shop for clothing.

For the outfit of the day, I am finally able to show off the clothing I purchased during the grand opening of Zizzi Delft (link here). I am wearing a black top that has a sewn on a flower print the left top shoulder. With the top I am wearing a knee height near neutral pink pleated skirt that has a silver shimmer band. The outfit is paired of with light pink necklace and black tights. To contrast the black top and tights I finished the look with white sneakers.

Do you get excited and start rummaging through your closet for an outfit when Spring rolls in? I have found that wearing near neutral colours are great for Spring (read about it here). Let me know in the comments your favourite spring colour.

A Royal Wedding

Having just finished watching the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle this weekend. I could not help but be filled with inspiration to write a blog post. I was not alive for the famous wedding of Lady Diana. The wedding of Prince Harry's brother William was very much a traditional Royal wedding, but this wedding would be so much more interesting, because I knew it was going to be different. Knowing that Prince Harry is 6th in line to the throne and therefore could have a less standardised Royal wedding than that of his brother. I was excited and curious to see how a Royal wedding with less restrictions would look like.

The love story of Ms. Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is what I would call a fairytale. The fact that they met on a blind date set up by friends they had in common and that she is an African American of mixed heritage with no ties to the royal family is like the classic tale of many romance novels. After seeing the wedding live on television, all I can say is that I super impressed. Their attention to details left me speechless. Here are some of my favourite highlights.

Let us start with the dress, designed by British designer Clare Waight Keller who last year became the first female Artistic Director at French fashion house Givenchy. 

The dress was made of silk cady with three-quarter sleeves and a boat neck also know as a Sabrina neckline (neckline presumably created by Hubert Givenchy for Audrey Hepburn first worn during the movie Sabrina)

The dress had a 5 meter long veil with embroidery representing the distinctive flora of each of the 53 Commonwealth country of which Prince Harry is the appointed Commonwealth Youth Ambassador. The veil was held in place by by a diamond bandeau tiara once worn by Queen Mary was loaned to her by reigning Queen Elizabeth II and the look was finished off with subtle Cartier diamond earrings.

I just love how the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex found small ways to incorporate things that showed their love for each other into the wedding. Like the Duchess wanting to express her gratitude for the opportunity to support the work of her husband of the Commonwealth by incorporating references to its members into the design of her wedding dress or the Duke handpicking several flowers from their private garden at Kensington Palace the day before the wedding for the wedding bouquet.

Other highlights included the wedding ceremony being inclusive by having a sermon by African American Bishop Michael Curry who even quoted Dr. Martin Luther King in his sermon and a gospel choir singing "Stand By Me" a 1951 R&B song

The incorporation of traditionally black religious traditions showed that while it was a Royal wedding, the Duchess was allowed and involved the planning of the ceremony. Let me know in the comments if you watched the wedding and what were your favourite parts.

Aruba - Travel Log

Greetings from the "One Happy Island" Aruba. Here on a short vacation, enjoying the sun and visiting friends & family. Thought it would be nice to share some of the pictures taken on the island.

Here is a picture taken at a beach called Santo Largo. It is a hidden gem, mostly known the by locals. If you are looking for peace and quiet and a very calm beach, this is the perfect place to go to.

A day at the beach in Aruba is always fun, but this time around I also decided to try something different. I went to my very first yoga class at the beach. The class was given by yoga teacher Dagmara Avanindra who also teaches at a hotel and at the yoga house Island Yoga

It was a total different experience compared to practicing yoga at a yoga house or even at the gym. It required more focus as your are standing on sand instead of a flat surface and also had take into account the sea breeze,  which made balancing a tad more difficult. But nothing compares doing the Sun Salutation while watching the sun setting in front of you.

Something interesting that I also wanted to share with you was my visit to San Nicolas, which is the the 2nd largest city of Aruba. For the past few years San Nicolaas has become a city filled with vibrant street art. Beautiful murals, with more and more being added every year. I would recommend a visit to San Nicolas to anyone interested in Art. It is amazing to see street art with a caribbean touch. Something you do not see everyday.

What Are Those?

Some people got money on their mind, but I have sneakers on my mind. It is all I have been thinking about for the past few weeks. Constantly checking Google, YouTube and stores like Footlocker, Snipes and JD SportsAll because one day I went shopping and suddenly realized that I got so out of touch with what was happening in the sneaker world. Like Boost. Boost what?!? (Answer, link here). It was like I was sleeping beauty waking up from a long sleep only to find that sneakers were not only been worn as street wear, but in the boardroom as well.

So, there I was needing to dive back into the world of kicks to find out what I have missed out on. Let just say, it is a great year to be part of the sneaker culture. The releases scheduled are truly dope (link here). For me it all started with the brand with the 3 stripes. I won't call myself a Sneakerhead, but as an Adidas lover that has already been the outlet next to Adidas HQ in Germany that also has a pair of customized MiAddias. I must say I truly heart trainers.

Adidas - Mi Samba

When it comes to crepes I might be categorized as a purist. I love me the Stan Smiths, the Superstars. Give a new colorway in these models and I am happy lady. But times has changed and so have I. While I will always have a special place in my heart for Adidas. I am open to other brands. Just last Christmas I copped my first Air Jordan brand trainers.

Jordan 1 Flight low

Now on the hunt for new a pair of kicks, I have been eying the Jordan 3’s Retro OG basketball shoes, Reebok Club C 85 and Workout Plus tennis shoes, The Pharrell x adidas Tennis HU and the Filling pieces Low Top Ripple Tonal Beige.

Which crepes are looking forward to looking forward to? Let me know in the comments.

OOTD: African Inspired

Nothing like going shopping during the Winter sale to make you feel inspired to write a blog post. I do not even remember the last time I did an Outfit Of The Day (OOTD). I do have several outfits, I would have liked to have shown on the blog, however not having someone there to take you picture makes it a bit more difficult and using a timer is just not as much fun.

But this time the outfit was to lovely for me not to blog about it. During my trip to New York, (read about it here) I visited a small shop in the an Afro-Caribbean neighbourhood in Brooklyn, where I spotted skirts with African prints. The colours were fresh and lively. I just knew I had to try one one.

When I looked in the mirror after trying on the skirt, the first thing it did was put a smile on my face. While the gloomy weather outside was making me feel the opposite the skirt has the opposite effect. After trying on different skirt, I ended up buying two. One of which I really wanted to show off on the blog.

I must say it really does not bother me that Summer is well behind us and that colder days are ahead, where almost everyone tend to wear darker colours. Sometimes you just should wear what makes you happy. Reminded me of the quote about fashion and expressing yourself.

Holiday Gifts

With Christmas slowly fading into our memory and now everyone preparing for the new year, with parties and new years resolutions, the holiday season is almost over. But hopefully you are having an amazing holiday season. My season was filled party, food, Netflix and last but not least gifts, which I would like to share in this post. 

My gifts included of jewellery and make-up, two of almost every woman favourite things. The jewellery was multilayer beaded necklace from Belgian jewellery brand Chartage and a M.A.C. lipstick from the 2017 Winter Collection called Snow Ball. Both are so beautiful, I cannot wait to try them on. 

Another gift was a vinyl record of the new album from Kesha called Rainbow. Before this album, I had always thought of Kesha as a club hits pop artist. But after hearing a few of her singles from the album, I just fell in love with her new music and I guess alot of other people as well as she has now been nominated for the 2017 Grammy's in the category best pop solo performance and best pop vocal album.

Let me know in the comments, what gift you received. 

Happy Holidays !
