Spring is coming! After days of non-stop rain we finally had some sunshine this weekend and I’ve started to slowly introduce some spring elements into my wardrobe.

These last weeks have been so cold that I was slowly turning into a sheep! My vintage shearling jacket, boots and mittens were the only clothes warm enough to keep me from freezing. Not a lot of room for fashion when temperatures drop below zero (at least not for me). Luckily I was so busy with illustration jobs that I could spend a lot of time inside with my thermos filled with tea right beside me.

2017, let’s do this! A fresh (and very cold) start.
So far, I have spend most of this November inside. After a few days in Amsterdam, where I went to see The Lumineers (yay!), the flu got the best of me. Today I’m finally back working at some illustrations. Here are some of my favorite things of the moment, including my new Dali Katch speakers. They sound even better than they look! I take them into my work room when I’m working, into my kitchen when I’m cooking, and yes, into my bedroom when I’m sick in bed with the flu. After all, music heals, hopefully even flu 😉

So far this October I have been very busy working on a number of projects. But I also made time for some shopping! After all, one of the most fun things about the start of a new season is sorting your wardrobe and adding some new (or rediscovered old) favorites! I love to mix new with vintage and I’m especially happy with my “new” vintage coat, that will keep me warm all winter!
Wearing: coat, vintage – bracelet, alà – off the shoulder top, mittens and underwear, H&M – skirt and leather bag, vintage – lip balm, Maybelline – shoes, Carmens

This was actually the last print that I finished for my new calender. In it are some of my favorite things for fall: tea, mittens and a warm oversized scarf.

September so far: sunshine, some orange in my Dutch wardrobe, The Lumineers’ Cleopatra on repeat and finally reading The Catcher in the Rye.
