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?

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!

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?

Lately I’ve been posting quite some outfits containing pink, but I still also love a nice classy black and white outfit! These outfits are great for a ton of different situations and don’t need to be boring when you go for a fun print. This outfit is great for a daily casual look, but you could also wear it to a business meeting. The grey bag I picked out at Duifhuizen tassen en koffers goes perfect with an outfit like this; a beautiful classy bag appropriate for many different situations. This bag from Emily & Noah can be used as a shopper as well as a laptop bag, because it has a special laptop department. So you can either use it when you go shopping or when going to a business meeting. What do you thin of my new bag?

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 directlampen.nl, 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?
