A few weeks ago I received an email from Zalando explaining me everything about the Zalando Creative Content Icon Award. I wanted to work around Brigitte Bardot. Why? Because this gorgeous blonde bombshell was always sporting that elegant and effortless chic look. Did you know flats where here trademark? Bardot is definitely one of my style icons. I love how keeping things low key can still turn out VA VA VOEM. This ‘je ne sais quoi’ – look is more me than a plumped up dress. I hope you love it as much as I do!
Brigitte Bardot, we know her as a style icon and sex icon. I’m more into the style part because she set the standard for personal style during the sixties and seventies. Her favorite pieces of clothing? Simple yet stunning. Everything she wore still has an amazing impact on the world of fashion. Also on me. The sexiest outfits are often the most simple. And let that be my jam!
I’ve always loved fashion but never dared to share my love for it. Why? I got bullied a lot. When I got my surgery I started to google around and I found this picture of BB. Her style, I found myself in it. Feeling and look good by just wearing a jeans and t shirt? How can this not be my style icon! She keeps on remembering me that great style in timeless. That you don’t have to stick to trends to look and feel amazing. Guess what: it gave me a huge confidence boost.
I’m a big sucker for flats in all forms. From sneakers to ballet flats to flat over the knee boots. They have never been out of style nor ever be. That’s why I opted for these shoes by Sacha. These over the knee boots are my favorites this fall/winter. You can combine them with almost everything.
I wore a high waisted jeans paired with an oversized jumper because those are amazing. I cannot tell you how much I love them. I want to live in them. Thank got I’ve got quite some oversized knitwear. I chose military green because it’s just perfect with my hair and eye color. (personal style, remember?)
To finish off this outfit, I added a dotted silk scarf to finish off the look and give it that retro look.
With this entry I wanted to show what reflects on my life. Ever since my surgery (read all about it here) I feel like life is too short to not enjoy it. I started enjoying, but I had to learn how. Life can be over quick, that’s something I realized very quickly. It’s simple yet stunning at once. We have to take care of it. Brigitte Bardot knows how to live life and still rock every single bit of it. Also when it comes to fashion. A simple outfit, that’s all it takes to look fantastic. I’m not the kind of girl that goes over the top when it comes to style. Simplicity is key.
