And so the trip continued..... to the GORGEOUS town of Samoin-sur-Seine, once called home by gypsy legend Django Reinhardt. And that why where we went there, to meet other Djangofiles at the Django Reinhardt festival. How? A few months ago we decided to go there on nothing more than pure intuition and the overwhelming feeling that it might me amazing.... And it was, my oh my it was... Five days of NON-STOP live music by thousands of musicians from all over the world. It truly was a mesmerizing trip. We met SO MANY amazing people, got enjoy the best shows, drank the most amazing 'vin de table', attented some of the best jam sessions I have EVER seen and enjoyed floating on the Seine. There truly are not enough words in the world to describe how magic this trip was.....
Such a great line-up!

The weather has been very good over the last few days....(actually it's been freaking hot haha)... so that meant I FINALLY got to wear my custom made Norma Playsuit by Ains&Elk StyleHaus. A few weeks ago, Alixis contacted me if I was interested in reviewing on of her designs. I am so very happy she did, because I never came across her Etsy shop before, but I absolutely ADORED every single piece on there as soon as she send me the link... My god, what a beautiful patterns and even more gorgeous vintage fabrics Alixis works with. I felt absolutely blessed to get a chance to wear one of her pieces and to be honest, I've been wanting a summer suit for ages... So after careful consideration, I chose to go for this cute playsuit in a mustard yellow fabric.....
After just a few days my package arrived and when I opened the lovely wrapped goodies I was instantly smitten! The fabric is just so divine... but the quality and the detailing (beautiful lining) in the suit is possibly even more remarkable! Now I am quite picky when it comes to quality, but Ains&Elke's work truly is A+ material. On top of that, the fit is PERFECT... which can be a bit tricky with sending measurements through the internet, so I consider my cuty of a suit to be true craftsmanship. I wore this outfit to the park yesterday and I felt like a million bucks! If by any chance you've been looking out for a vintage summer suit like this, I highly recommend contacting Alixis to check out the possibilities. Even the prices are great (especially when you consider what unique pieces you'll be getting)!






So, to put even more cherries on an already delicious cake..... here is AN AMAZING GIFT TO YOU GUYS.... If you use the code 'DARLING' on the Ains&Elke StyleHaus Etsy shop, you will get 15% off on your order! Get it while it's hot, this discount will be available for a month babes! Oeeeh and if you purchase something, SHOW ME <3 I'd love to see what cute outfits you will be wearing this summer :)

THANKS A MILLION ALIXIS <3

Trips: Gent retreat

0 lovely comments
After Muddy Roots.... before heading for France.... we decided to take a little festival break in Gent. So we booked a GORGEOUS b&b, with a bath, and indulged ourselves in the pleasures of one of my favorite ancient towns. The b&b was located next to Gravensteen castle in a stunning 17th century building. The entire top floor was ours and the view was INCREDIBLE!! We were only in Gent for a day, but we still managed to snap a few pictures to set the mood.... (if you want tips&tricks on where to go in Gent, search for 'Gent' on this blog... it will lead you to the blog posts I made after my previous visit)

Trips: Muddy Roots 2014

1 lovely comments
Beer, dirt, banjos, crazy people and a SHITLOAD of fun.... Hello Muddy Roots Europe! This June we headed for hick-town Waardamme to dance our boots of in the Belgian country side. Muddy Roots is a small and cozy festival, where everyone starts to feel like one big crazy-assed family within minutes. There really is no need for putting on pretty dresses, or even wear make-up.... The atmosphere allows for everyone to let it all go for a few days and just PARTY all day long. We had such a freaking BLAST and met the most amazing people.... 
This is just a Tribute...

Our little friend Logan was there all weekend <3

Gotta love these three guys from Rotterdam!

Bluegrass Boogiemen <3

Meet Dolly Wilson....
