Preppy meets vintage

By combining print and stripes it’s like preppy meets vintage. Try something different by combining items that you normally wouldn’t. I will show you how.

flower print 

This cute dress from Yours clothing almost looks vintage. The romantic flowers and pastel colors make this print work. With the black base you can combine it with everything you like. Since it’s still far from spring in the Netherlands, I am wearing it with dense tights, boots and long sleeves. However this dress would be great with sandals too in spring. Can’t wait!

Preppy meets vintage


I know lots of women don’t like sleeveless dresses but I love them. I am not a fan of my upper arms though, trust me I want to hide them too normally. Especially now when my arms too white, right after winter. However with a sleeveless dress you can combine it any way you like. Here I am wearing a blouse underneath the dress. The buttoned up collar  gives it a preppy look. Other options are a basic, fitted long sleeve t-shirt underneath the dress or a cardigan over it.

skater dress 

Oh how I love this shape dress, skater dress is my middle name. I love them and I almost got to a point where I didn’t wear any other shape anymore. Why I love this? It accentuates my waist, what I need because of my big hips. I know the skirt part doesn’t slim my hips down, but any other doesn’t either. Accept and go on! Because the dress has a custseam at the waist, the top part is fitted and below the waist the skirts gets wider. Since the dress is above knee length it shoes off a bit of legs which I really like.
