The Paris Thrift

4 lovely comments
Wednesday = thrifting-day. This week I had Paris on my mind of course... and with that in mind I found the perfect cotton sundress! I just love this shade of blue, the flower pattern (which has touches of gold in it) and the fit is also great. What a perfect Paris-proof haul!

Betty Draper Pink

7 lovely comments
I am a huge Mad Men fan. I love the fashion, the women, the men (hmmmm when they were still to be called gentlemen), the story... It's just my kind of show. Watching the first episodes of the fifth season reminded me I am always so intrigued by the women when they are smoking.
Why? Because of their beautiful cigarette holders and the even more amazing nails with which they open them. Just so graceful and elegant... it almost makes me want to smoke and look like that... (don't worry; I won't.) Betty Draper is one of my favourites from the show, and occasionally she wears a certain shade of pink nailpolish I've wanted for myself ever since I first laid eyes on it. The shade is not too pink, with a touch of coral... and contains no metallic what so ever. Turns out; not that easy! I had been looking for quite some time now. Very frustrating when you really réally want something that would seem to be so easy to find haha.
But today, I finally found that exact shade of pink at the Kruidvat (Catrice)! The shade is called 'Meet Me At Coral Island' and it just makes my hands look so pretty. I feel like a Mad Woman now.... if only I smoked.... no I wouldn't want that. Maybe I'll have a nice fancy cocktail instead *yummm*

Preparing for Paris part I

10 lovely comments
Whenever I go on a trip, I put together a color scheme as sort of a guideline for the 'packing ritual.' For our trip to Paris next week, I wanted to bring bright colours and pastels. I do hope the weather will accompany my bright selection of clothes haha. Here are some pictures of the first selection of clothes I made today. It might change a bit during the week.... probably..... almost certainly. Whieehhhh (L)

Vintage belts... always good for the finishing touch

Garden fun

The sun it out, which means it was time for us to brighten up the garden. We bought all sorts of plants to welcome springtime. Today it's so lovely outside, I'm enjoying the sun in my own garden in between the fresh flowers and herbs! What a day.... welcome dear spring!

T-strap beauties

These beautiful leather Dune pumps are exactly what I was looking for. I found them in the Asos sale and they go very well with many planned spring outfits. I can't wait to take these puppets out for a stroll...
