I decided to quit this blog and start over on a brand new page. My old blog posts can still be found here, but I will not be updating this blog anymore. My new blog can be found on www.sonjavogel.com and it’s all about low waste, veganism and slow & fair fashion! Or actually living a fun, colorful and yet sustainable life in general! I hope to find you there!
Lots of love,

The weather has been super lovely and spring-like in the Netherlands the past few days. It immediately gets me into the mood to go to the park and lie in the sun, but actually it’s still a bit too cold for that, haha! The s.Oliver outfit I’m showing today is perfect for those early spring days. Still with a coat, but already a bit thinner one. I really like the material; it’s kind of like a faux suede, which really gives a special touch to the outfit as opposed to a regular trench coat. Underneath it I’m wearing a flowy blush pink dress with glitter details, which matches perfectly with the coat. And underneath the dress I’m also wearing a turtle neck for just a little bit of extra warmth. I’m soooo in love with the bag! I really like pretty classic backpacks. So practical, but also really pretty to go with every outfit! :-) What do you think of this combo?

It has been so mega cold in the Netherlands recently! So I was very happy to find this inside location matching this outfit! :D It was actually even way too hot with the coat on, haha! But well, I really wanted it in the shots, because it’s sooo cosy and it also perfectly matches the blue lights in the trees in the background. It’s a bit of an unusual combo with all the prints and the blue teddy-like coat, but I actually really like it. I was browsing the s.Oliver webshop again for an outfit. I found the trousers and the blouse first, and I figured they would look really fun together, as they have similar color schemes. Then I also found the blue coat. I didn’t want to scratch the blouse and trousers, but I also reaaaaally wanted to wear the coat in an outfit. So I just decided to try them all together. And I think it worked out pretty good! I really love when unexpected combinations work out! What do you think of this combo? :D

So last year I fell in love with a red velvet puffer jacket. But it was really expensive and also made with down feather, which I don’t want to wear. And then, when I was browsing for items for my monthly s.Oliver outfits, I bumped into this one which is completely vegan! Wooooo! Actually, I’m in love with this entire outfit and all the items in it. The blouse, the skirt, the jacket, all items are stunning on their own. And together they’re just the perfect autumn combo! And how about the backdrop?! This spot is one of my favorite spots in Amsterdam in autumn. And it looks just perfect with the puffer jacket as well! Do you like puffer jackets for autumn and winter? And how do you feel about this particular one?

A bum bag and white high waisted jeans. Items I’ve never owned before. But now I do! Clearly, haha! I’ve been digging the bum bag trend for a while. Especially the more chic versions. I also like the sporty bum bags, but those are more for others than for me I guess. So when I picked out some items from NA-KD I spotted this pink number. It also comes with a regular strap, so you can wear it as a cross-body bag as well. So in case the trend goes away and I don’t want to wear it as a bum bag anymore, I can still wear it! The top and white jeans are from that same NA-KD order. While I was ordering I wasn’t even trying to put together an outfit. I was just picking out the items that I liked. And when the order came in I figured it was actually a great combo for an outfit post. So here we are! I borrowed the bike from Suzanne, who took these photos. My bike is not photogenic at all, haha! What do you think of this outfit, and how about the bum bag trend?
