Dutch Summer

2016 Dutch Summer - Cindy Mangomini

The Dutch summer so far: rain, rain and more rain. Excellent summer weather to stay inside, read, drink tea and have an occasional sunny cocktail.

Hey June!

2016 June - Cindy Mangomini

This is actually not exactly what I’ve been wearing most at the moment. We’ve had nothing but rain for the last weeks. But yesterday was sunny and today is looking good so far, so I thought this would be a good time to share my “June’ illustration for my upcoming birthday calender (which has been a  little bit delayed because of work on other projects, but it’s coming soon!)

May, so far.

Wearing: t-shirt, Alternative Apparel – bracelet, A la – small purse, Solmode – cap & jeans, H&M – sandals, Birkenstock – straw bag, vintage.

Festival must-haves 2016

How to get festival season ready 2016 update - Cindy Mangomini

Summer means festival season and these are my festival must-haves. This is an updated version of an illustrated how-to that I did for Hello Giggles in 2014. I’ve made it a little bit more ‘2016’.

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.

2016 march - Cindy Mangomini

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 😉

Wearing: cardigan, vintage – top, Newyorker -nailpolish, Catrise – denim dress, H&M – shoes, Carmens Padova, eyeliner, Hema.
