This illustration was inspired by the book How to be Parisian, wherever you are, and by the style of some of my favorite French fashion bloggers. Like everyone else, I secretly want to be Parisian too!
It’s cold outside and I’m keeping warm with some new and some (rediscovered) old favorites. Besides from working I have spent January (so far) with trying to get healthy again, reading books, drinking tea and a lot of vintage shopping.
Wearing: underwear, H&M – boots, Steve Madden – bag, vintage – beanie hat, H&M – ear studs, TessaRandi – coat, vintage – skinny jeans, Circle of Trust. The gloves are so old I don’t remember where I got them.
I’m trying to fight off a cold by drinking lots of fresh mint and ginger tea with honey. Also, I’m eating a lot of chocolate, because that always helps as well 😉 I’m wearing my first ever Primark item (I’m not proud). I had to layer it with warm tights and a big cardigan, to stay warm enough for the Dutch summer weather. The best news is that I managed to get tickets to see Ben Howard in November, YAY!!
An after work drink with a friend, followed by some quiet reading time. I’ve just started reading “Perfume” (Kurt Cobain’s favorite book).
Here’s this week’s illustrated how-to about how to spend a rainy day. For more of my work on Hello Giggles have a look here.
