In Love with Batik

Hi everyone! Finally the weather is getting better here in the Netherlands. This week is gonna be around 17-20 degrees :D really happy and excited to just sitting on the balcony and enjoying the sun or window shopping without bring any heavy coat anymore. So this post, I would like to share my favorite outfit for sunny time and yes time for batik again. As you may know that Batik is the traditional pattern from Indonesia (my home country) or as Wikipedia said Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to whole cloth. 

I just found this batik from silk last night when I cleaned up the closet at home. I got it like 6 years ago and now finally I am able to mix and match. It is actually a piece of cloth and I can make something from it. But I prefer to use it as scarf. The color so beautiful and it's perfect for any outfit for spring and summer.  Can't wait to get more of this Batik scarf from my mom! Then, I combine this lovely scarf with my black dress and crop top with a little bit of accessories. Never think this combinitation will be so stylish and chic. Feels like I am really ready for summer holiday!   Hope you like it guys:)



 









Cheers

  6. Gorgeous piece! Silk is always such a luxe material. The idea of using it for a scarf is great, that way to can preserve the whole thing while still using it! Thanks for sharing :)

TRANSITIONAL STYLE

Summer is almost gone here and it's time to wear something warm or let's say it's time for layering season. I am in love with this new knit wear from ZARA. Super comfy and the strips gives you chic look! I have this kind of knit wear from them in different kind of colours too. I think for the transitional weather, this is a perfect cloth to wear. Trust me! If the weather is still too cold for you, then you can add a blazer or a trench coat and for layering you can wear a white shirt underneath. This time, I combine it with ZARA ecru blazer and super soft scarf. To complete this look, again I am wearing a white sneakers and a red bag cause they are perfect combination.

FAVOURITE ALL THE TIME

White bottom down shirt is essential during summer especially the one with floral embroidered on it. You can mix and match with any colours of pants and accessories as well. This one I got it from ZAFUL and I combined it with vintage waist belt. I have been craving to get both items this year. This is my first time to get something from ZAFUL and I think the overall quality is fine. If you want to have the latest fashion items in reasonable price, then you should definitely check out their website. Want to be the more fancy in this summer? Just do it! Discover their summer arrivals and use this code ZFEN to a get surprise discount. Additionally, my lovely red leather bag and white sneakers from ZARA are perfect accessories to complete this look.

ONE FINE SUMMER DAY

It was a really nice summer day and the only one sunny day in The Netherlands. Oh I am so annoyed with the summer weather this year. It's raining almost every day here. Well at least I could capture nice pictures outside with my maxi black dress that I found from Fashion Blogger Sale in Groningen. This time, I combined it with my vintage scarf that I found at second hand market, the favourite summer straw hand bag and of course this lovely sandals from Dune London. I am in love with the shape of this maxi dress especially on the back side (feeling so sexy). It's actually from Monki and super comfortable. I think Monki has lovely and minimalist collections. If you don't really like something colourful or too many prints, then you should go to this store. Anyway, this kind of dress you can also combine it with denim jacket and sneakers!
