Laura’s choice: night time basics
I try to avoid wearing black when I go out at night but when I do, I’ll always add a pop of color or glitter. In this mood board I combine night blue and mustard, two of my favorite colors.
Like I mentioned in my previous post Laura’s choice: daytime basics I’m a big fan of jewellery. When I go out to party or meet up with friends for drinks, I’ll wear bigger and more colourful earrings, rings or necklaces.
I don’t mind wearing heels. Even though my feet hurt like hell after dancing all night long, I can’t imagine not wearing heels to a club. They make me feel more feminine and confident.

I am all about sparkles when I go out. In my dress, skirt, shoes or purse. Something just has to sparkle. In my opinion sparkles instantly add a bit of glamour and personality.
Like I said in my previous post Chloé’s choice: daytime basics I’m a big fan of watches. But it’s not always appropriate for a woman to wear a watch in the evening (I know, this rule is ancient, but I also still like it when a man opens the door for me so…) that’s why I tend to go for big bracelets for parties or dinner events.
Heels are a must for me in the evening. They bring out your legs and look really feminine (if you are able to walk without stumbling that is).

As you can see my personal style is a bit more laid back than my friend Chloé’s. Not that I don’t like to dress up now and then. My closet is filled with pencil skirts and floral dresses.
But when it comes to daily wear, I tend to go for comfortable yet stylish pieces like jeans or chino pants, a fun T-shirt and a cozy cardigan.
My go to outfit might appear a little bit Plain Jane, and that’s where I bring in the oldest trick in the book: finishing off my outfit with jewellery.
I never leave the house without wearing earrings, rings and the occasional bracelet or necklace. I’m also a big fan of nail polish. Burgundy, mint green or pale pink: I love to experiment. That goes for my entire wardrobe.

My fashion basics have been the same for at least the last 3 years. I can’t live without a perfect fitting grey skinny jeans that goes with nearly everything in my closet or biker boots to go underneath it (which also go amazing with a skirt to give it a bit of an edge).
I’m in love with printed T-shirts, because they always say something about the mood you’re in, I once wore a T-shirt with a f*** you sign and the same day my boyfriend dumped me (I’m just saying…)
The love for big manly watches comes from my dad, his personal watch collection is amazing and it had a contagious effect on me. Same for purses, but this comes from my mom. A black purse is the easiest one to combine with your outfit during the day.
A nice belt (to keep my pants up) and a cool bracelet add a bit of personality.
