Last Saturday, my boyfriend and I celebrated our birthdays. My birthday was 3 weeks ago, and my boyfriend’s birthday was last Thursday, so we actually always combine our birthdays. So, on Saturday a bunch of family and friends came over, and we had so much fun! And I got a poffertjes pan! Poffertjes are a Dutch delicacy, and they’re kind of like mini pancakes. They’re a bit thicker and fluffier, and they do taste a bit different than regular pancakes, but they’re soooo good! You need a special pan to make them, which is a pan with all these tiny holes in them to bake them in. I used to make them at my parents’ every once and a while. And now I can make them at home any time I want, whoop whoop! Anyway, because of the party we went to bed pretty late, so we didn’t do too much on Sunday. It was a super lazy day, which I really love! Minoes noticed, and spent the entire day on either mine of my boyfriend’s lap, haha! How was your weekend? :-)
This outfit is from the weekend before, when I went shopping with Rowan. It was pretty cold, but we were also going into (warm) shops, so coming up with an outfit was a bit of a challenge. When you dress really warm, you will get super hot in the stores, and if you dress too cold, you will be cold when out. So I decided to go for layers, and tights. Obviously, the thights weren’t really that warm, but for the short bits outside it was perfectly doable. To compensate, I wore a mock top, with my yellow vintage dress over it, and a long coat. At the moment I’m only using this coat as a blazer, because it’s way too cold to use as a real coat. So I also wore my blue winter coat over it. So altogether it was pretty warm! What do you think? :D
