Streetstyle: De IJhallen

Wherever I go I always look around to see how other people dress, how they express themselves and with unique combinations they are a big inspiration to me. I've always loved street style photography and blogs so this weekend when I was selling stuff at the IJhallen fleemarket I thought I'd try it myself. In Venice I've already had the chance to practice a little with the street-casting assignment and I really enjoyed doing it.

People are very nice when I ask them and I'm so happy with the result! I'm definitely going to do this more often. Let me know what you think!

When I saw this couple at the market I just had to take a picture of them! They were actually the first people ever who I've asked for a street style shot (I was always too shy ha ha). I think they look so beautiful together, perfectly dressed in 40s style, with a great eye for details.

Finally someone who dares to wear orange! She shows that you can look very stylish in the bright color. She combined the longline cardigan with a simple black and white outfit, leather backpack and zipper boots.

This girl really pulled off the soft pink trend with her trousers! The top and platform shoes gave her outfit some edge. I also loved her hair and make up, which you unfortunately can't see very well on the picture. 

I need those trousers! I think it's very cool that the woman wears an all golden outfit with matching shiny black shoes, great combination!

I love unexpected combinations like the left girl in this picture has created. She mixed a lot of colors and materials and it works out great. I'm a big fan of the floral cowboy boots! Her friend went for a little less color; black & red. Very classy and I love the oversized jacket!

When this girl passed me I went after her and just before I wanted to ask her for a photo another woman got to her first to tell her that she liked her outfit a lot (though she didn't have a camera haha). The colorful printed shirt and accessories details make a beautiful contrast with her all black outfit. 

Venice Biennale

Today I stayed home because I became sick yesterday, meh :( but at least I had enough time for homework and to sort out my pictures from last week's trip to Venice with the Academy! It was a big surprise to hear that we were going to the city and La Biennale di Venezia.

We travelled by bus for 12 hours, I probably got 2 hours of sleep that night and when we arrived, we got to throw our stuff in little cabins and headed off to the city by boat.... which I missed so for me the adventure started 1 hour later :')

Venice is absolutely beautiful! First day was about exploring the streets, bridges, shops, restaurants and working on one of our assignments: street-casting. We had to photograph different identities, and then choose one type of person to 'cast' the other days. It was harder than it sounds but a lot of fun!
The second and third day we visited The Biennale. There is a big variety of beautiful, weird, funny, confusing art like paintings, sculptures, sounds, movies, photographs, installations, performances and more. I found it pretty hard to not try to understand everything ha ha! My eyes got even more tired than my legs everyday because I was constantly scanning people, taking pictures, looking at the city & art and the lack of sleep didn't help much either. But it was totally worth it!


After the first Stand Up Paddling trip I was already excited about the sport. It's a great workout, relaxing at the same time. So I went again a while ago, this time we took another shorter route because storm was coming. In the end we created a campfire and enjoyed the drinks and snacks they brought for us. I'm happy that Nikano organizes these trips in my hometown!

(Unfortunately I don't have pictures of the part were we're all trying to hide underneath the table, trees and SUP boards for the rain haha)
