LBD Spring Break Style Challenge

Beautysets - LBD Spring Break Style Challenge

I work on this project for a while now, but now I am able to share this with you. I am so excited to let you know why!

Do you wear this at your next spring break vacation?

Have you ever thought what you want to take on your spring break vacation? Or have you ever doubted whether you have taken the right outfit for your spring break vacation? If you’re still asking yourself what to get into your suitcase for your next spring break vacation, I found the inspiration for you!

My spring break vacation

For my spring break vacation – and that will be a family-weekend of the other grandmother of my husband in the beginning of May – I was inspired by DailyLook. I was thinking: “What can I do with a black dress?”. I know the temperatures will be very warm during spring and then wearing a black dress could be very warm for the body, but it is very challenging to combine a black dress during spring and having no warm body.

In the end I love this black dress, so I made the decision to use this dress for an outfit. Previously I took more classic or chic dresses, but this time I thought to do something different. I like to try other outfits, because I haven’t such clothes in my closet. I’m still finding out my style – which I haven’t found yet – but I am getting there. I only save a budget for when I need clothes and I hardly need new clothes.

My idea about this outfit

O, I created this outfit to go to the forest by day and in the evening just wear the jean jacket and the scarf and you’re done with your outfit for on the beach at night. Yes, I do love going to the forest and yes, I do love going to the beach. I never went to the beach by night. Something for on my wish-list!

I’m a mother too and I don’t dare to wear this dress without a legging. I think because people look at you when you’ve children. And then I ask myself: “Everyone is looking at me, is it appropriate to wear this dress without a legging? People can see my underwear if the dress gets up when there is some wind!”. Maybe I am thinking wrong or I am too afraid of it?! Who knows… It feels wrong. That is why I should use a legging, but for people who really dare to wear this dress without a legging, you definitely should wear this without a legging!

Why did I used those items?

Gauzy Boho Dress: As you know I like more the classic and chic dresses. But lately I also have an affection for challenging dresses with holes from the shoulders. This black dress will be a perfect example for a simple, chic, daily, casual and challenging dress.

Matisse Leather Cowboy Booties: I also want to try a country-look outfit. These boots is perfect for getting the country-look, I think. I’m curious if this outfit will fits me!

DAILYLOOK Bronson Stone Hoop Earrings: To stay with the chic looks, I found these beautiful earrings. And it has a statement as well. Which I love too.

Quay Round Lens Sunglasses: Last two days the sun was shining a lot. Yesterday it was 20°C! So, it was time to get the sunglasses. Unfortunately I forgot mine at the location where I was for a course I was following. I bought a new one today. It was’t looking like this one. This will fit great with this lovely outfit!

Stela 9 Leather Quixote Small Bucket Bag: Who doesn’t like bucket bags? I do, although I haven’t one. It will be on my wish-list. I have chosen the red bucket bag, because I have a weakness for the colour red.

Velvet Heart Gloria Classic Jean Jacket: The jacket jeans are in fashion again, like they were in the ’90s. I always loved them very much. I had one when I met my husband, but when it got holes I dislike it and gave it away. I have so many regrets of it, because I could have so much fun with it these days. And I still can have so much fun with it.

Full Knit Scalloped Infinity Scarf: I am just a big fan of scarfs, but I have’t wear them that much since I have had a bad experience with a scarf. The scarf was colourfast. I then had a whole blue neck… But I have a few of them. So, I will wear them much more often now! I have chosen for this scarf, because it is red and it fits perfectly together with the red legging and bucket bag and the dress itself.

DAILYLOOK Beaded Bracelet: Like the earrings, the necklace and the rings – the bracelet is from gold-looking material which is perfect for the statement of this outfit. I have chosen for this bracelets, because it is easy to combine with the other jewellery or just put it off if you

Classic Knit Legging: To stay with my red colour affection, I decided to create this dress with a legging. Maybe to be save in the creativeness?! Because I am always afraid to get cold, I used a legging too.

DAILYLOOK Double Band Ring Set: I love this double band ring set, because has a gold-looking colour. I love gold or gold-looking jewellery. It has some kind of a statement! And it fits great with this outfit. Like red, gold and gold-looking colour is one of my favourite colours at the moment.

DAILYLOOK Polished Chain Link Necklace: You see these kind of necklaces a lot. I have one myself, but I am not wearing necklaces too much, because of playing the violin. I can damage the violin by wearing it. But for events like parties I do wear a necklace. This necklace is safe for each outfit you create. Mostly – in my opinion – simple is the best.

Bailey of Hollywood – ELLIOT Hat natural: Last but not least, this wonderful cowboy country hat. This will be on my wish-list too. Love it. Have I told you I love the Australian serie McLeod’s Daughters? I truly love it. I think I told you before. This hat finish this outfit perfectly!

I hope you like this post as much as I did. Let me know what you think of this outfit. Do you like or want to wear it?

Probably you’ve seen the skirt already. I like the skirt very much. Simply blocked in white and black. This outfit is tough and everyday. The jeans jacket will be fashionable again. I remember it was fashionable in the ’90s, when I went to the primary school. I always wanted to have one of them, but my mom told not to have one, because of the finance. But later I got one from someone else who doesn’t liked it to wear them. So I was very happy.

Lately I am looking for some inspiration, because I am still finding out what my style is. I haven’t bought any of these clothes I am using through Polyvore, but it gives me inspiration to find out what I like. It will be that far one day. I don’t know how long I have to wait. First of all I need a job and then save for these kind of things, and a smartphone (which I haven’t any yet).

When I looking at this big tote, I have to think about my grandmother. She always such totes. About fifteen years ago, these bags were fashionable for people of her age (about 80). At least I can’t remember if I have seen anyone from my age fifteen years ago. Maybe I wasn’t paying any attention to fashion. I was not interested at that time in fashion.

This outfit is perfect for wearing it daily in fall. I think it will be perfect for a BBQ in the fall when the sun is still shining. I love the boots in combination with the long sweater. It makes the outfit not so groggy. But very venturous.

Bite me crazy

This streetstyle is perfect for as a daily outfit!! Love the jeans very much as well as the shoes and all the accessories!


Bite me crazy

Gosh red lipstick

Yesterday you’ve seen the red lipstick I’ve used for my Face of the Day for the last match between The Netherlands and Brasil – which The Netherlands won with 3 against 0. Yay, The Netherlands won.


The package shines a lot. I like that very much. It is a very thin stick and very vulnerable.

The colour is really red. Very red actually. Good for a good party or – like the flag of The Netherlands – for matches of the team of The Netherlands.


The cons is that the lipstick will get aside the lips when using the mouth. But you can erase it very easily.

I think this lipstick is from the serie – Soft’n Shine Lip Balm – from a few years ago. Gosh made a very good product.


Stay Glossy 3D Lip Gloss by Rimmel London

Rimmel London has 3D lip glosses. I have number 703: Love at the Movies. It is a brown colour with a very high shine.


This is what they say on the website:

Multi-dimensional Luscious Lips. 
Up to 6 hours of Hi-Def Colour and Shine.  
Bring your lips into a new dimension with a multi-coloured shine coming from every angle! 
Thanks to its new colour changing sparkles, your lips will look fuller, shinier and with a stunning colour change depending on the light. 
Your lips in a 3D dimension! 

I really can’t see the 3D dimension they mentioned.


The packaging is beautiful and easy to use.

The mip gloss itself is a little bit sticky on the lips, the lip gloss is smoothy. But after all I like it and I will stay using the lipgloss!


Gosh Copper Mono eye shadow

Gosh has good eye shadows too. The texture is perfect. Better than my Catrice eye shadows (which I still like very much). This eye shadow is number 09 Copper – a mono eye shadow. The colour is brow-gold-copper-a-like. Very beautiful chic colour you can wear with lots of outfits!

As eye liner I used an eyeliner from Maybelline New York in the serie Line Definer Liquid Eyeliner. This eyeliner is fine to with. Although I have to get patient to apply eye liner on my eyes, I will get better doing it.

Nails #12 Eletrix Blue

The C01 Eletrix Blue from the Haute Future Limited Edition from Catrice is very chic. It seems grey and silver together.

DSC_8269 DSC_8274

On the website they say:

Multi-Facetted Future Chic. Ultimate colour, ultimate coverage and ultimate shine. The Ultimate Nail Lacquer brings the time warp to your nails. Five limited colours with various effects in fashionable shades.

After all I am very satisfied with this nail polish. A very good recommendation.

As topcoat I used the C01 Holo Is The New Yolo – a flake topcoat. I like that very much.

Black Or White Swan?!



The Intensif’eye Wet & Dry Shadows frome Catrice are baked, good pigmented and the texture is fine. The colour is black with a little bit white. The white colour makes it that the eye shadow will be a little bit grey/black after all which I like very much.

DSC_6555 DSC_6574

Catrice has such good products for a budget brand. I can’t say it enough! This is 010 Black Or White Swan?!.

DSC_6595 DSC_6596

The eye shadow get off after an whole day wearing it if you don’t use an eye shadow base.



This is what they wrote on the website about this product:

The handmade, highly-pigmented Baked Eye Shadows with a unique triple color marbling effect really have a lot to offer! Depending on whether you apply them wet or dry, the intensity of the Intensif‘eye Wet & Dry Shadows ranges from subtle to bright. For every day, every mood, every style.

They say the same thing with all the other colours.

Vanilla Sky Ride

This 030 Vanilla Sky Ride from Catrice is a bakes eye shadow. It is in the serie Intensif‘eye Wet & Dry Shadows. The texture is really baked and it is very good. It doesn’t break fast. Of course it will get off and be grainy, but that is normal with eye shadows.


This is what the website wrote about the product:

The handmade, highly-pigmented Baked Eye Shadows with a unique triple color marbling effect really have a lot to offer! Depending on whether you apply them wet or dry, the intensity of the Intensif‘eye Wet & Dry Shadows ranges from subtle to bright. For every day, every mood, every style.

I haven’t tried it wearing it wet yet.
