Fashion - Work Appropriate: What do female Architects wear?

1: Filippa K - 2: Avance - 3: Sennheiser - 4: Mango - 5: Cos - 6: Asos - 7: Karen Millen & Eleven Paris - 8: - Schuberth - 9: Karen Millen - 10: Apodis

With my current search for a job in architecture, I started to wonder: 'What do you wear as a female architect?'. This may seem as a silly question as during my university years I just didn't care about any set-out rules and just wore what I felt like that day. But being a 'grown-up' is totally different than being a student where you can get away with just about anything. Which woman doesn't want to exude power & success while still being true to herself in the business world. As for me (with many people claiming I look so young) I want to make a statement, be remembered, show confidence & power while throwing my love for fashion in the mix. You only get one chance at a first impression as they say.

Outfit: Comfy in Jeans

Top: Zara, Jeans (c/o): New Look, Sneakers: H&M

Don't we all have these days where we just want to put on something laid-back and relaxed? During my teens this was me 80% of the time: blue skinny jeans + top/sweater depending on the season. Like why put in all of the effort when this made me feel comfy and it saved a lot of 'stress' not knowing what to wear. Growing older I realized these pale skinny's didn't always looked so great on my legs (especially after seeing them photographed). But my love for jeans stayed as I walked over to the colored jeans & prints, still with a skinny cut.

Travel: Archistas visits India (video)

Archistas visits India

I've still got so many content to share with you guys, I'm starting to think I really need to start updating 3-4 times a week to get it all up haha. Well organizing plans aside, here is a little video I made of footage I shot in India. Yeah, I just love filming too even though I'm not as good at it (yet). I've updated my Youtube channel and I fixed the ending so it's clickable to previous videos yay! I've still got a video from Rotterdam waiting to be finished and images from my birthday trip in Paris back in October (yikes gotta move on with that one). But just so you know, I really want to implement videos more in the future and especially in travels like now. But hey maybe you guys have an idea on what other things you'd love to see me film! Don't hold back to challenge me or say what you really miss or what tips/tricks you'd love to see me tell in moving image, the comment box is waiting on your suggestions.

Hotspot: Groos Rotterdam

Schiekade 203 3013 BR Rotterdam, The Netherlands

If you're a design, fashion, art, music, literature or just the all-round lifestyle lover, the concept store Groos is your first place to go in Rotterdam. It's close by the train station in a newly revived area with neighbors such as 'Bar', 'Hip Hop Huis', 'Zus Architects', 'Biergarten',… But more about those things in my city guide later. The store offers only quality products from Rotterdam, things they feel 'Groos' (a Dutch word for proud) about.

Outfit: Rotterdam

Sweater: Zara, Top: Pull&Bear, Jeans: Zara, Cut-out Boots (c/o): Choies, Bag (c/o): Eastpak, Necklace: Vintage, Bracelet: Diamanti Per Tutti

This weekend I was invited by the Eastpak team to explore Rotterdam guided by locals. On foot, by bike and by boat we visited this cool hotspot of architecture, fashion, design, food and music. It was an opportunity not to miss, for starters I hadn't visited this Dutch city before (and it's so close to Belgium) & have you checked the program, everything I like right on the list. The tour was women only, some 'power women' from Rotterdam told us their inspiring stories. But my favorite guy came after the city tour to stay with me overnight and to further explore the city the next day. Thus creating the perfect opportunity to capture this look that I wore on saturday, matchy matchy with my new Aminimal Eastpak bag.
