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!
using the code ‘RETROSONJA’! The code is only not available on the ‘handpicked’ collection. But there are still plenty of styles to choose from! The code is valid from June 27th until June 29th, so from today until this Thursday! Follow @Desenio on Instagram 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? :-)

How was your weekend? :D On Saturday I spend almost the entire day on a boat in Amsterdam, which actually looked more like a floating living room. It was great! And on Sunday I mostly did household stuff, like doing laundry and vacuum cleaning. Has to be done at some point, haha! But off to the outfit. I love this dress so much! A-line dresses are great for summer, because they’re so flowy and keep you from getting all sticky and stuck to the fabric, haha! But I love this one especially because of the flowy sleeves, the cold shoulder dress, the high neck and the eyelet detail on top. I just had to create an outfit with it! Recently I’ve been loving the colorcombo pink with pastel yellow, so this hot pink Love Moschino bag just had to make an appearance in this outfit! What do you think of this combo? :D

Wow, the weather has been amazing here in the Netherlands lately! More of that this way, please! Last Thursday I went to the beach with Suzanne. Where we obviously also shot some photos of each other. I received this pretty silver bangle from Mostert Juweliers. A basic bracelet made from real silver, so it will stay around for a long time, and it goes with basically all other bracelets. The perfect basis for every arm party! The rest of my outfit is very colorful. As you might know I loooooove color, but on sunny summer days this color love even goes up a level, haha! So you can expect more colorful outfits from me from now on! What do you think of this combo, and my new bangle bracelet? :-)

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
