Spring and summer are my favorite seasons! Spending time outside in the sun makes me so happy. I also like the fashion in these seasons the most. Floral prints, cute dresses, straw bags.. Do I need to say more? I thought it would be fun to share my spring / summer musthaves with you:
- Straw bag
If you don’t have one yet, you have to get one! Straw bags were already super trendy last year, but this year you see them even more! I think it’s just the perfect bag to combine with a cute summery dress. I actually bought a straw bag myself last year on my vacation in Spain. Best purchase ever, because I wear this bag every day.
- Floral dress
Flower dresses are available in all kinds of colors and types. They are so cute and feminine. The perfect piece to wear to a picnic, on a date or to a summer party. I actually wear flower dresses all the time.
I wear sneakers all year long, but I especially like them in the spring. They are the perfect shoes to wear under a summer outfit. My favorite spring sneakers are definitely white sneakers. You can go for a pair of Adidas Stan Smiths, Reebok Classics or Nike Air Max 90’s.. Especially the Nike’s are so comfortable. The perfect sneakers for a spring hike but also cute in combination with a denim skirt. Also cute: white sneakers with a straw sole.
- Ankle strap
In spring I like to wear more accessories. I especially like boho pieces. They are just perfect for spring / summer! My favorite accessory is an ankle strap. I think that an ankle strap is a much forgotten accessory. And I don’t know why?! It’s so cute! Whether you wear sneakers, heels or flip-flops… It gives every spring look an extra touch!
- Denim jacket
Last but not least: a denim jacket! It’s the perfect jacket for spring / summer and besides that it looks cute with every outfit. You have them in all kinds of colors and sizes. I personally like them oversized. I myself have a white one, blue one and nude one. And they are the only jackets that this season. TIP: Do you like the old / oversized look on denim jackets? Instead of going to regular stores, take a look at some thrift stores. I found my white denim jacket at Episode and it’s my all time favorite.
What are your musthaves for summer?!
Omg this sunny weather makes me so happy! I’m always a more happy person in spring / summer. I just love to be outside and get some vitamin D in my system. There is also so much more to do in spring / summer I think. Anyway, you get the point haha. Even though spring has just started, I already have a favorite fashion piece.. This nude/pink denim jacket! I love it so much! The jacket is from Garcia and I got it a size bigger, so it’s a bit more oversized. I combined it with a simple white look and my thrifted Gucci bag. I also think that this jacket is going to be really cute in combination with a playsuit or a dress. Will definitely share more outfits with this jacket!
Today I have a shooting day planned for The Peachy Mag. We’re going to the beach and make some cool pics! Will show some of the looks etc. here as well (of course!). What are your plans for today? Happy Sunday! XX

Last week I received some clothes from Na-kd to shoot for their channels. This one sleeve knit was one of the items and I really like this piece! It’s a pretty basic white knit, but the one sleeve gives it a sexy and fashionable twist. The only downside is that this knit is hard to wear in the Netherlands. It’s either too cold or too hot. I have to figure out when I will where it hihi. Anyway, I combined the knit with my favorite pair of black flared pants from Loavies. I could live in these pants, they are SO comfy! To give the outfit some color, I wore my red booties from River Island. I recently bought these boots and they are for sure one of my best recent purchases. They are comfy and fit most of my outfits!
Today it will be 16 degrees and sunny outside, finally after all those cold and rainy days! I have to catch up on some work today, but I will definitely enjoy the sun for a bit. Maybe I go for a walk or have a coffee on the terrace. We will see! I also want to work out today and tonight I’m going to have some drinks with one of my besties. Fun day!
What are your plans for today?
And what do you think about this one sleeve knit? When should I wear it?! Tell me!! XO

A few posts ago I told you that I was working on a new project and now I can finally tell you what this was all about.. We launched a new blog The Peachy Mag, a project where Iris and I worked on for quite some time now. The Peachy Mag is a platform where we share our art, life and style. On Anouk Today I post my ‘best’ work, mostly in the fashion, travel and lifestyle theme. And although I still love that, I missed a place where I could share more thoughts, shoots, books and ‘messy’ things. Of course I’ll keep posting here, but if you wanna see more of me and my work you should definitely check The Peachy Mag blog. For now it’s only a blog, but there are so many more things coming.. Keep an eye for that!
Today I’m going to work on my blogs and tonight I’m going to a lecture in Rotterdam, exciting! The weather will be super nice this weekend, so I’m also really excited for that. Can’t wait to sit on the terrace and feel the sun shining on my face. Best days! Anyway, talk to you tomorrow in a new outfit post! XO
I usually never write about beauty. I mean, I love make-up and skin care but I don’t really switch a lot with my products. I use the same make-up and care products for quite some time now and I don’t think that I will switch a lot in the near future. I’m not in anyway an expert on this topic, but I thought it would be fun to share my favorite skin / body / hair care products.
I have a normal to dry skin. Over the years I tried some different products from different brands and my favorite skincare products are definitely the products from Kiehls. I especially love the Midnight Recovery Oil and the Ultra Facial Cream. Both products are really moisturizing! For cleansing my face I really like the Nivea Visage Eye Make Up Remove and the Aqua Effect Cleansing Foam.Body
My favorite body care brands are Therme and Kneipp. I usually use the Therme body butter to moisturize my skin. My favorite Therme scents are White Lotus and Bali Flower. Kneipp has the best shower foams ever! I especially love the Almond blossom scent, so soft and flowery. Another favorite brand for body care is Rituals. I love the ritual of dao line. That scent.. So good!Hair
I’m really picky when it comes to hair products because my hair tangles so easy! Especially when I get out of the shower and my hair is wet, it’s super tangled. Brushing my hair is really painful when I don’t use shampoo and conditioner. I love the shine and care line from Andrelon. I also really love the shampoo from Dr. Organic. After I blow dried my hear, I love to use the Beauty Oil from Schwarzkopf. I usually curl my hair and to keep it in place I like to use the Elnett hairspray from L’oreal.
What are your favorite skin / body and hair care products? And do you also want to see my favorite make-up? Maybe I can make a post about that aswel! Let me know! XX
