YES! Festival season is here so we can be creative again! What a nice way to integrate the floral trend in our looks, right?
YES, we get totally inspired by our Dutch soccer team during the World Cup!
Next to the fact that our flag is red-white-blue, our national color is orange, and this is what we usually wear during national events like this. But orange is also a color that makes us most of the time struggeling with our outfit. And if we have the choice between orange and black, we always take black. But how cool would it be if we would find some supercool -fashionable- outfits !! For this we found some perfect ways to wear orange! Think about cobaltblue, panterprints, and orange tights. Super great, go Holland!
Hooray! Sale time has started online, so a good excuse to visit your favorite webshop again! Be quick, before the best pieces are gone!

"De gevonden op Marktplaats salon". Julien Rademaker and Samir Bantal searched on Marktplaats ("Dutch E-bay") for items for this event. "We would like to give items a new context" - including furniture, lamps, lights, paintings and statues. They made the interior as a collection of one unit. In this way there was a new total concept again.This all they made at the gallery "Looiersgracht 60", worth visiting!!

I never bought a white coat, until a couple of months ago. (Do you remember our post?) I was (/am) so scared white coats get so dirty so shortly. Maybe they are not that dirty but they can look very dirty, very quick. When I was trying my white coat on in the store I immediately fell in love, it gave my outfit a total chic effect! If you see a nice white jacket, I can definitely recommend to at least try it!
World's best violinists incognito in the subway station, playing for 45 minutes during rush hour. Six Bach pieces. Only 6 people stopped in this 45 minutes and stayed for a while. 20 gave him money; he earned $32 dollars. While one week before Bell was playing with a violin worth 3,5 million dollars in a sold-out theater in Boston with an average value of seats of $100.
Joshua Bell, one of the best violists ever, played incognito in the subway station. Part of a social experiment about perception, taste and priorities of People by the Washington Post.
At an unsuitable hour; do we observe beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it?

In Holland, cycling is our way of living. In Holland there are more bicycles than residents. More than 70% of all journeys in cities as Amsterdam are made by bike. For the spring that is coming it is time to decorate our bikes on a beautiful way! See 10 inspirations to decorate your bike.
As a big fan of anything pink, it is a place on top of my travel wish list. And even for others it is not hard to understand why one would want to see this crazy lake. Apparently, the pink color of this lake is thought to be the result of a combination of algae and bacteria in the water. Despite the odd hue, the lake does not have any adverse effects on humans or local wildlife.
As you might have noticed; my favorite shoes are men-style shoes; brogues, monks, loafers, anything like that. 3 years ago I bought my first brogues and wore them till the sole was broken. (read: till they died) But they are still in my closet, I am emotionally attached to it. But now I am looking for new brogues and see my current top 5. Time to start saving money for one of them....

A little over a week ago I spent a short weekend in Copenhagen with my boyfriend. What an cool city! Though a little small, the city really had some super cute shopping places and restaurants to offer! We met up with some friends, hung out in the sun at the Meatpacking district and had some of the best food at the Madsklubben restaurant in Vesterbro.
Last week I bought this leather coat from Tommy Hilfiger. Leather jackets are so pretty, and only become prettier every day. An investment ;-) The bomber-leather jackets can be worn different every time, but this long leather coat that might be a little bit more difficult, The shapes of the pockets, red details, colour and smooth leather is asking for some more modern items. Perfect to combine this with the modern-look sandals from & other stories. Or think about a tailored high-waist trousers......
