Long time no see! It’s already been two weeks since my latest blog post! How on earth is that even possible?! I was super super busy with school, because I had trial presentations for the final assignment of two of my courses. On May 29th I have the offical final presentation of all three courses, so until then I will still be pretty busy. But after that my summer break is already here! Yay! Can’t wait to spend more time on my blog and Instagram (@RetroSonja) again, and have fun days at the beach and have lunch with sweet people! But off to the outfit… I received an order stuffed with lovely s.Oliver items again. So this outfit is all s.Oliver! I found this blue jumpsuit while browsing the webshop and I instantly fell for it. Casual and chic at the same time, made from a really nice soft stretchy fabric, and with super fab cropped flared legs! Because it’s Spring, and my mind is already in Summer, I decided to wear it in a beachy Ibiza kind of way. With espadrille wedges and a whole bunch of gold colored necklaces. I’m also totally in love with the necklaces, by the way! Especially worn all mixed together. I never want to take them off again, haha! What do you think of this outfit? :D

How was your weekend? Yesterday the weather was lovely after a couple of weeks of winter-like weather. So I spend a great amount of time in the sun on our balcony, eating ice cream and chilling in the park. And I also spend some time working on my school work, and planning our summer vacation. We’re going to Bali for a month! I can’t wait! But off to the outfit; the skirt, top and coat are all from the same brand called Comma and when I saw them, I immediately pictured them together in an outfit. I borrowed the shoes from Suzanne. They’re the same ones I took with me to Paris. I’m still secretly thinking of a plan to steal them from her, haha! They’re so pretty, and so comfy despite the heel! Love it! Anyway, what do you think of this combo? :-)

Fijne Koningsdag allemaal!!
Een paar weken terug werd ik benaderd door de NOS of ik mee wilde werken aan een Koningsdag special ter ere van de 50e verjaardag van Koning Willem-Alexander. Welkom trouwens als je via die special mijn blog hebt gevonden! :D Een special waarin over verschillende onderwerpen video’s zouden worden opgenomen over hoe dat onderwerp verandert is van 1967 (het geboortejaar van de Koning), tot nu. Ze vroegen mij voor het onderwerp mode. En natúúrlijk wilde ik daaraan meewerken!! Een paar dagen later stonden er dus twee cameramannen van de NOS voor mijn deur om dit gezellig voor mijn kledingkast op te nemen. Superleuk om te doen! De andere onderwerpen gaan over muziek, vakantie, speelgoed, koken en communicatie, met onder andere Domien Verschuuren, Winfried Baijens en Floortje Dessing! En ik mag gewoon in dat rijtje staan met een video over mode! Kun je het geloven?! Ik ook niet helemaal. Maar hieronder zie je in elk geval het resultaat!

Oh Spring! How I love all those pretty blossom leaves! Unfortunately they only stay around really shortly. And that’s why I like to shoot with them as soon as possible! And still when we showed up at the group of blossom trees I was planning to shoot in front of, they turned out to be blossom-less already. Oops! Luckily we found these pretty trees in the same neighborhood! Yay! This outfit is all s.Oliver and I love it soooo much! Actually I fell for all these items as soon as I laid my eyes on them. And mixed together, I love them even more. And how about the shoes?! So 70s! I love it! What do you think of this look? :D

Time for a new outfit! And this time it’s a bit different than what you’re used to from me. I spotted this white denim suit, existing from a jacket and a skirt. I loved it so much, I just had to create a look with it. I combined it with a blue and white striped top and my Keds eyelet shoes. Add the fact that my hair was in a ponytail and this look really gives me that tennis vibe, haha! But I secretly kind of like that look! Even though I never hit a tennis ball in my life, haha! The blue wall also really matches my outfit, and just how cute is this pink drink and straw?! And it was super yummy too! Win win! What do you think of this outfit? :-)
