Hi loves!

When we were in Bali last Summer, we found a shop selling these gorgeous Eastern lamps. These kind of lamps are made with patterns existing from all these little holes, which gives a very dreamy effect when it’s on. We were in love, but it didn’t seem like such a great idea to take lamps home in our suitcase, haha! And so we let go of the idea. Until I received an e-mail from, where they also sell these gorgeous lights! They have different kinds of Eastern lamps; from ceiling lamps to table lights. We went for these copper table lights which we’re now using as night lights! When all the other lights in our bedroom are off and we only have these on, it just gives the most romantic and dreamy effect! We’re super happy with them!

The photos below show how the lamps look with and without our other lights on. In case you’re not into Eastern lights, they have so many more kinds of lamps in a ton of different styles. And also very trendy! You can also shop outdoor lights and bathroom lights. What do you think of our new night lights?

Hello dears!

Ok, I can’t explain how excited I am about this post. I now own a pink suit! I repeat; a pink suit!! I’m such a huge pink lover, as you all probably know by now. Also, I really love my trousers to be super high waist, and I love a nice belt. This suit has all of that combined! And it was so affordable at Zara as well. It’s funny, because pink is actually considered quite a childish color, but somehow I do feel super powerful in this suit. Very Legally Blonde, I might even say. I combined the pink suit with a pastel yellow top from NA-KD. I love this color combo and it really gives me that Spring feeling. To finish the look I went for my beloved hot pink ankle boots. And don’t you think this dotted square makes for such a fabulous backdrop?! So, what do you think of my new suit, and the way I wore it?

Hi sweeties!

Last weekend me and my fianc√© (!!! <3) went to Florence in Itay to look at some wedding locations. We saw some beautiful places, and I can tell you that our dream location was one of them! We also took the time to walk around in the beautiful city centre of Florence, where we took these photos. s.Oliver sent me this gorgeous pink trenchcoat. s.Oliver is selling this coat in 8 stunning colors; classy with a twist! I love the color, the fabric feels great, and I’m in love with the beautiful tortoise-like buttons. I combined the trenchcoat with red trousers, and a printed top with flowers. Pink with red; I love it! I decided to wear the buttons of the trench open, but to close the belt. This way you show more waist than with the coat open, while you can still see the outfit you’re wearing underneath. And all of this in this cute Italian street! I love it! What do you think of this look, and my new pink trenchcoat?

Hello loves!

Wait… is that me in a hoodie?! Yes indeed! To be honest I hardly ever wear hoodies. Not even when I’m couch-potatoing. I’d be wearing a cosy oversized sweater. But somehow this one from s.Oliver really spoke to me. For starters because it’s pink; I’m a huge sucker for pink these days. But also the glitter stitches and the somewhat unusual neckline make this hoodie different from the rest. And it really made me want to put an outfit together with it. I decided to go for a casual chic combo; a chic skirt, beautiful grey overknee boots and a fun colorful coat. I really like the detail of the hoodie popping out of the top of my coat for a change! What do you think of this combo? :-)

Hi dears!

To me it’s always fun to find inspiration for new outfits. Nowadays we often get our outfit inspiration from Instagram for example. But it could also be a fun idea to get inspired by a movie! The website of Zalon shares styling advice inspired by 6 iconic movies with 12 iconic outfits. From these 6 movies I chose ‘The Great Gatsby’ to insire me to create an outfit appropriate for Christmas or New Years Eve! ‘The Great Gatsby’ plays in the roaring 20s. And those times were all about a whole lot of pearls, shininess and fur. In this case, as a vegetarian, I obviously chose for a faux fur jacket. In the 20s women often wore multiple very long pearl necklaces. I also did this, but I also added a pearl choker to give the outfit a more modern touch.
