I have good news on the study field because I finally found my plan B! As you might know, I have known that I want to study communication and media at the Erasmus university for over two years now. Unfortunately IBCoM is a program with decentralized selection, therefore having a plan B is quite necessary. When I went to the open day of the University of Amsterdam two weeks ago, I became enthusiastic, because I had finally found another communication program with a focus on the media. Also the program 'information science' caught my attention. It is a bit in between communication and media and it seemed very interesting. Especially the part about building websites sounded very good. Yet I still hope I will be chosen in Rotterdam. Currently I am working hard to get my grades higher and to improve my motivation letter, which is also the excuse why it has been a bit quiet here at Dutch Beauty. (I hope to make it up with you soon!) Anyways, on subject, today I have an outfit post for you with the outfit I wore to the UVA. Enjoy!

I would like to introduce you to my new love: my MC inspired winter coat. I met him when I was in Antwerp a couple of months ago (read: last summer) and it was love at first sight. Even though it was over 20 degrees that day, I just could not leave him hanging. It's a pretty chic jacket with leather details at the neck, shoulders and arms and a very nice large zipper. Exactly what I was looking for! Now it is getting colder, I've been wearing it almost every day. So when I was in Amsterdam last week, I decided to make some pictures for you guys!

Things I am grateful for...

When the weather is as grey as it is today I just love to sit on the couch with my laptop and a big cup of hot tea, preferably in comfy clothing. And lately, I have been falling in love with comfy sweaters. So when I came across these cute personalized sweaters of Romwe and OASAP, I could not resist placing an order. The sweatshirt I went for, how predictable, has a pink floral print with the word 'Dior' on it. Usually I kind of dislike sweaters with a brandlogo on it, but I have a soft spot for big brands like Dior and Chanel, so I didn't really mind. Another nice little detail is that the dot on the 'i' actually isn't a dot, it's a female head with butterflies coming out of it. I'm really looking forward to wearing my new sweater! How would you combine it?

A long time ago, when life was still beautiful and when spare time still existed (read: summer), I went on a trip to Utrecht with Jessy. Utrecht is a lovely city with a nice atmosphere and of course lots of cute shops like Flying Tiger, Lush and Sissy Boy. Next to those we can also find stores like H&M, Zara and V&D. Yet this article is not about shopping, but about my second favorite hobby: eating! In my opinion not any less important for a good shopping day! For lunch Jessy and I went to a very cute place on the Wittevrouwenstraat: 'de Bakkerswinkel.'

Maybe it's the weather or maybe it's the finals-stress, but I'm in a shopping mood. With three orders on their way I do not have to tell you that I have been shopping quite a lot the past few weeks. You will have to wait to see those three orders, but I can already show you what I bought in Rotterdam and of course the stuff that just came in from OASAP and Romwe!
