Yay, I finally got to take outfit photos on this pedestrian crossing! I had this location in mind for quite some time. But everytime we went to take outfit photos it was fully covered in sunshine. Which means not so charming shades on your face, and in case of my pale skin, my skin turns into a huge sun reflector, haha! So that doesn’t work too well in photos. This time the spot was in the shade, so I took my chance. The outfit I’m wearing is all s.Oliver and I’m in love with every single one of the items. I really like the lace hem of the dress and the detail with the bow on one of the shoulders. The bag has such a convenient size. You can stuff a whole lot of stuff in there, it’s practical, but at the same time it’s not so big that it’s taking over your entire outfit, haha! And the shoes… those I’m even more in love with! In a fun baroque print, but because of the black and white it actually looks great with almost everything. They are great for every day really, but they’re also perfect for Christmas! A really versatile pair, I must say! What do you think of this outfit and photos? :D

There are soooo many flowers in Amsterdam right now! I love it! It makes me super happy when I’m cycling through the city, and they’re also perfect for outfit photos. These yellow ones looked really nice with the pink details in my outfit I think, and they really give the photos a romantic vibe. While my outfit is actually quite casual! The trousers are pretty wide opposed to what I usually wear, but somehow I’m starting to like that more and more lately. This combo is comfy, good to move around in, but I still think it has that feminine touch. Lisa curled my hair, and that added a little extra feminity to the look. I really want to get her curling iron. I have really heavy hair, and most curling irons simply don’t do the job. When I start with the third curl, the first one is already straight again, haha! Anyway, what do you think of this outfit? :-)

Back again with an outfit! This time one with a lovely summer dress! I love flower print, I love blue and I love longer length dresses and skirts. Soooo it basically was love at first sight! Lately I’ve been totally addicted to the combo of the two necklaces and the gold colored earrings I’m wearing in this post. Anyone noticed yet? Haha! I’ve been wearing this combo with almost all my outfits recently! It just looks great with everything, is not too outstanding, but it really finishes your outfit. I love it! As you know I also love combining prints, so that’s why these striped espadrilles ended up under this flower print dress. And just how cute is this spot by the way, with the little bench and the red flowers in one of those retro bins?!

I had been thinking about changing up the posters in our wall frame holders for a while, when I received an e-mail from Desenio. Desenio sells soooooooooooo many lovely posters and beautiful frames. So I was all up for it! I was allowed to pick some posters and frames, and I’m so happy with all of them! I mostly fell in love with the animal posters and the botanical or nature posters, so ordered most of the posters from those sections. I went for oak frames, and I think they really finish off the entire look and feel of the posters. They’re beautiful soft colored, cheerful, but at the same time not too outstanding or distracting from the posters. In this post I’m showing you how the new posters look on our frame holders, and I’m sharing a more creative way to style them on a cabinet for example! What do you think of my new posters and frames? :D
P.S. You can now get your posters at Desenio with 25% discount! The code ‘RETROSONJA’ gives 25% off posters, except for the category “handpicked” and frames, between 27th-29th of June. So from today until Thursday! Follow @desenio for more inspiration!

Recently I’ve been wearing these pied de poule trousers non stop. I bought them a couple of years ago at a flea market for about €6 or €7 and I already wore it every once and a while. But lately it’s been one of my favorites. It’s not as tight fitting and basic as my black high waisted jeans, but still you can match it with so many items and you can quickly put it on. In this post I’m actually wearing it in quite a simple combo with a white blouse, but I think this combo is always a winner. The brown heels give the outfit a more vintage feeling, and the bag with pink beads makes it more modern. And I love that combo; a bit of vintage and a bit of ‘now’! What do you think? :-)
