[:en]Hi loves!

Last Thursday the new s.Oliver store opened in Nieuwegein. I stopped by to look around and put together an outfit with items from the store. And I think that went really well! First I found the white blouse. A basic, which also has a special touch with the bows on the sleeves and in the neck. I figured this would be a great way to start the outfit, because it would look good with a lot of different items, so I took it with me. Then I found the trousers, which match my style perfectly colorwise. And I also really loved the wide legs and the print. I could have stopped there, since it was already an outfit, but I like my outfits to have that little bit extra, so I kept on looking. And then I bumped into the blazer! A beautiful fit number with nice buttons and a fun checked print. As you know by now, I love mixing prints, so I decided to wear the blazer with the blouse and trousers I already found. The shoes are also from s.Oliver, but I was already wearing them that day. Fortunately they looked great with the outfit! Even more print, haha! What do you think of the outfit I put together?

Want to take a look in the new store yourself? The store is located in Nieuwegein, in CityPlaza!

[:en]Hello dears!

In this outfit I feel like I’m back on Bali. Partly because of the colors, the off shoulder sleeves and the bamboo earrings. But mostly because of the straw bag which I bought on Bali. Every time I wear this bag I clearly picture Bali again and I get into a good mood! And since this bag looks perfect with practically every summer outfit, I’ve been feeling like I’m on Bali a lot lately! The striped off shoulder dress is a sample from Ana Alcazar which I got from a PR agency. I really love the vibe this color combo adds to your outfit; hippie style / Bali style! And I really love that vibe in summer! What do you think of this look? :-)

[:en]Hi sweeties!

It’s been a little while since the Japanese Sakura park in the Amsterdam Forest was in bloom. Obviously I had to visit to take photos. And today I’m sharing those shots! I was wearing a lace dress from NA-KD in which I feel like a total princess, and which made me blend in with the blossoms in the background like a chameleon. By the way, I’m soooo in love with the wood bag I’m wearing. It matches perfectly with the warm pinky shades I like to wear and it adds this summery Bali-vibe to every outfit. Love it! The total feel of these pics turned out to be so dreamy! When we were there, the sun was shining through the trees, which created this magical backlight effect. What do you think of this oufit and photos?

[:en]Hello loves!

Recently I finally got myself a desk. Until then I was always working at our dining table. So now that I had a desk I really felt like making it into a nice cosy work corner, with a nice collage of posters in frames on the wall! DESENIO contacted me and invited me to pick out these posters and frames from their webshop, lucky me! The code “SONJARETRO” gives you 25% off on posters, from 22 until 24th of May. Follow @desenio for more inspiration! The code doesn’t work on frames or on posters from the ‘handpicked’ and ‘collaboration’ collections. But that still gives you so many lovely posters to choose from!

[:en]Hi dears!

Wow, we’ve had some sunny summery days here in the Netherlands! It actually feels like we went from winter straight into summer, haha! Nothing to complain about I’d say ;-) And also the perfect weather to shoot this summer outfit from the linen collection of s.Oliver. Linen is a very airy fabric for summer, and s.Oliver now has a super big collection with beautiful trendy items made from linen. The top and shorts I’m wearing are made from linen and they are super comfy for hot days like these. The top is actually a really flowy off shoulder top, but I decided to wear it off one shoulder and tie a knot in my waist for the extra summery touch. This really is my go-to thing in summer; tying knots in tops to turn them into crop tops. Love it! It spices up every outfit! Finally, I added the circle scarf as a headband and the pretty red and white striped espadrille-sandals. I love it! What do you think of this combo?
