Dreaming of Summer

2016 Dreaming of summer - Cindy Mangomini

I’m longing for summer and this is what I want to be wearing to a lovely picnic in the park. But, no such luck with the Dutch spring. It’s more wool sweaters, extra socks and staying inside to escape the rain, wind and even snow! Luckily, I can always draw a sunny scene!

March, so far: cold & wet.

March has been very cold and very wet so far, but I’m trying to enjoy it anyway. Tea and chocolate (home made brownies, yummie!) always help, and a little alcohol also doesn’t hurt 😉

Back to Winter.

2016 back to winter - Cindy Mangomini

After a sunny holiday, a week of FREEZING cold, now it’s finally a reasonable temperature again. This means I can wear normal winter clothes again instead of millions of layers! It’s also perfect weather to hide under a blanket with a good book. I’m reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert at the moment, very inspiring!

Wearing: “lucky” bracelet, Anna+Nina – jacket, Mango – cap and mittens, H&M – jeans, Zara – Gel eyeliner, Bobbi Brown – top, vintage
