Dress to Impress for your Internship Interview ❤

Heey lovelies,

For the last couple of months I have been so determined to find a great place to intern in London or elsewhere in Europe for next year, but unfortunately I haven't been so lucky yet :( But it has got me thinking about the moment I'd have to come in for an interview and decide on what to wear. I'd want to look stylish and well put together, but also want to keep it comfortable and effortless. I thought since I have to start my internship next January, a lot of you would have to as well. So I'm hoping my outfit picks can help you out a lil.

I think midi skirts are the most appropriate type of skirts for any internship position. Mini skirts just easily give off that "party girl vibe" and maxis might just be too uncomfortable to move in all day or that split can be too revealing. Personally I don't like wearing flats to a formal meeting, because I really need that extra height. So I would opt for a pair of shoes that have a reasonable heel/platform height. 
Internship Interview outfit ideas
Outfit 1 blouse - Sheinside | midi skirt - Boohoo | ankle boots - Asos
Outfit 2 blazer - Boohoo | cami - Choies | midi skirt - Boohoo | booties - Forever21
Outfit 3  blouse - Sheinside | necklace - Boohoo | midi skirt - Boohoo | booties - Forever21

Wearing trouser pants to an interview is always a safe bet, but make sure you let your personality shine through with a lovely statement necklace, a little pop of color and/or a fun print. Pants certainly don't have to be "boring", even if the position you're applying for is all about professionalism.

Outfit 4  sweatshirt - Choies | necklace - Choies | leggings - Chicnova | booties - Forever21
Outfit 5  blouse - Chicnova | necklace - Choies | pants - Choies | platform heels - New Look
Outfit 6  crop top - Choies | trousers - New Look | ankle heels - New Look

I really hope I have given you some insight on what you could wear to (internship) interviews that show off your sense of style and lovable personality. But remember: no matter what you decide to wear, make sure you feel confident!

Ps. do you guys have any tips on finding a perfect Marketing/Social Media internship (abroad)?

New In: Primark Over the Knee / Thigh High Boots ❤

Heey lovelies,

Yes, another new-shoes-in post! :) After failing to find black over-the-knee boots of my size at the new Primark in Rotterdam Zuidplein last Thursday, I decided to try my luck at the one in Zoetermeer the next day. And there they were, these perfect size 3 black gems just hanging there waiting for me to grab them. At first I wasn't too sure if I should even get them, because I am very petite (read: 4'11") and I didn't want the boots to wear me instead of the other way around. But Dulce Candy does it, so I know I and you if you're petite, can do it too!

From the quality of my iphone 4s you can tell that it doesn't do these boots justice, but they are pretty amazing. Especially with a price tag of just €24! I can't promise you that they are still available (in your size) at your nearest Primark, but it's definitely worth a visit.

What are your thoughts on knee high/OTK boots for the fall and winter?

New In: HiddenFashion.com Chunky Cleated Sole Heels ❤

Heey lovelies,

My love for cleated sole heels hasn't died down yet and these new white babies of mine are proof. I had my eyes on the River Island white platforms and Missguided black platforms for forever now, but they were always way too expensive for my taste. Let alone the JC Scully's! So you can imagine my excitement when I saw these white/black chunky heels for JUST 5 POUNDS on HiddenFashion.com. To be honest, I really had my doubts, because what if it was just too good to be true? I decided I wouldn't know unless I find out for myself. And so my order was placed... The mail man woke me up super early today, but when I saw the package was shaped like a shoebox I was a happy camper :)

Unlike the box it came in, the quality of these shoes definitely exceeded my expectations. They look nothing like I initially thought £5 shoes would look like. Let's hope when I get more use out of them, they remain in tact as well. But as for HiddenFashion.com, I'm definitely keeping my eyes out for more pairs to add to my shoe collection.

Would you ever risk buying shoes soooo cheap online?

Event: Pearl Your Lifestyle Event Jaarbeurs Utrecht ❤

Heey lovelies,

Last Saturday ROOTS-PR invited me to attend the 2nd edition of Pearl your Lifestyle event in Jaarbeurs Utrecht. I brought along my friend Omaily, my extra photographer for the day, and together we roamed passed all the fashion, beauty and food stands. We got to do our eyebrows, get flash tattoos, hair care advice and makeup tips, eat delicious baked pastries from our lovely island Curaçao, watch models strut on the runway and more. And when we wanted to sit down for a moment, we had a lovely "VIP" area for bloggers to charge our phones and network. All though I had absolutely no phone connection whatsoever and quickly went through all the shopping stands, I did enjoy my time.

I'm so motivated and have set so many goals to achieve this next year. Whether you've been around for a long time or just joined the journey of my blog, my gratitude is humongous!
