Wish List for Spring/Summer 2013

Shorts Suit:
There is just something about shorts suits to me that is so charming. The contrast between the formal looking 'blazer' versus the casual shorts on bottom is amazing. Also, I just love matching pieces. I've been looking for an affordable one forever. They are also super hot for spring/summer 2013.

Underground Creepers Review




I recently just purchased my first pair of creepers, and, not to spoil the end of this review or anything but.. I'm in love!
Underground Creepers are one of the best pairs of creepers you can get. It's a pretty well known UK brand and their creepers are famous.
I got The Underground single-sole Wulfrun creeper in black suede. They usually run around 89 pounds but I got them on sale off of Asos for around 70 pounds.

Quality:
These babies are made of the best stuff, I swear. When I got them in the mail I was surprised about how heavy they were. They are sturdy. They're also made of real leather. They are pretty expensive so that's what you'd expect, right?

Fit: 
I would say they run pretty big. I'm a UK 6 (US 8,5) so that's what I got. I have quite a bit of room in the back when I put the shoe on and I can feel it sort of move about when I walk. A pair of thicker socks maybe would help that problem. I couldn't go a size down because a UK 5 would be too small. 

Comfort:
They are about as comfortable as you'd expect from a 'flatform' shoe. They aren't painful at all. Do keep in mind that the soles are heavy and thick and don't bend with your foot, so they aren't as comfortable as a sneaker would be, but still comfortable. Since mine are a little big, walking in them too long gets a little... annoying, but that's just me.

Look:
I looooove the look of these, but I'd say they're not everyone's cup of tea. When I wore them out, my friend looked at me as if I was wearing Crocs.

I really love these shoes and have been wearing them ever since I got them. I love that they're all black and go with everything. If you're on the fence about these, get 'em! :)
They are sold at:
www.asos.com (sometimes)
http://www.office.co.uk (they have GREAT deals on them sometimes, as well as many other shoes)

I don't know of any others, if you do, comment them down below!
(Another great brand of creepers is T.U.K.)

I'll be posting some outfits with me wearing them soon!

What about you guys?
Do YOU like the look of creepers or are they just not your thing?

Insta-week.


I apologize for the lack of posts, but I have exams coming up and I've been studying like crazy (and also taking mini-breaks to catch some sun, as you can see!). It's been crazy good weather all week here in Holland, my friends and I have been soaking up the sun in several parks, with chips and school books scattered around us. 
More posts will be coming soon, after I finish my exams (June 8th is my last one!). Until then, enjoy a few pictures I took with Instagram this past week or so, and follow me on Instagram, if you would like to. My user name is lindsay_vdb.
Have a lovely week everyone!

Nailed: OPI Malaysian Mist

A pinky nude from OPI called Malaysian Mist is what I'm wearing on my nails right now. I know it's not the most exciting of colors for spring, but it's kind of my "go to"/goes-with-everything color. 
And yes, I stole the name for my nail polish posts from another blogger (Fleur de Force, I'm sure you all know her).
I liked it and I couldn't think of anything else myself! 


Let me know if you guys like these nail polish posts! x
