Love this denim jacket

Denim jacket

When it was Mother’s Day last Sunday I chose for a comfortable outfit in which I can walk easily during the walk in the forest. We had such a lovely day! First we cycled to our destination: the forest between Zeist and Driebergen. Lovely place to go. I literally found the rest I needed so much! I am a bit tired the last few weeks. I went with my family and parents.

When we arrived we spotted a place to sit down on our blanket. I used to do this a lot when I was a little child. So great to continue this kind of tradition (during special days). We had our lunch and the children played in the forest. Anna is trying to show us she has her own mind and goes her own way. She will walk away when she thinks I am not seeing this. But she is wrong; I’m seeing her action from the corner of my eyes! But she is very cute too, so adorable. The other two just played around and coming back all the time.

We all loved this picnic very much. I definitely will do this again! I’m just feeling rested when I come home from a day in the forest.It’s kind of a relief. And we have more forest in our neighbourhood. And it is easier to go there when we will move to Bunnik next year!

Have you ever had a picnic in the forest? How was your experience? Will you ever picnic again?

Family weekend in Vaals

Family weekend Vaals - Cafe Koffereck

From 1 May until 4 May I have been to a family weekend of the aunt and uncle of Wigard. The reason we gathered together was because they are married for 40 years! I hope I will be married that long. We went to Vaals – in the province Limburg. There were so many hills! I love the view from our home.

May 1

When we arrived the weather was so beautiful. It was warmer than I expected.

On the first evening Wigard and I went to the Cafe Koffereck to drink with all of his nephews: four of them, including two of their girlfriends. It was a great place to go.

May 2

On May 2 I slept until 11 o’clock. That was great and exactly what I needed. I was a little bit tired. In the evening we had the dinner in the Hotel and Restaurant Bloemendal in Vaals. The first course was asparagus soup. I never ate that before, but it was very delicious!! While we had to wait for the main course we got a glass of ice cream with blueberry and red raspberry and some champagne (I never had champagne before). Second was asparagus with vegetarian burger and a thick sauce of green stuff (I don’t know what it was, but it was very nice!). As a desert I had a soft round cookie (it seems like a rusk people in Holland are eating for breakfast or lunch) with cream and above this cream there was a white topping cream with a little bit coffee cocoa and some fruit – red raspberry and black raspberry. I loved the whole dinner! At the end we got some coffee and tea. I don’t drink coffee that much, but I had some tea and I loved it very much.

May 3

On Sunday 3 May we has some tea and cake at the holiday house of the Wigard’s aunt and uncle. There we planned to go to the city Maastricht. It is such a lovely place to go. Someday must be the first one.

Kingsday in Odijk

It is more than one week ago, but still I have my outfit for Kingsday. Pretty the same as my outfit for the football matches during the World Championship last year. Only the jeans bodywarmer I got new in – given by my mom.
Luckily we had such great sunny weather! I love it when the sun starts rising. Wigard, Judith, Esther, Anna and I were walking to the football fields near the building of the local government. There were so many things to do for children.
At noon there were the biggest lunch of Odijk. At least that was the goal of the organisation. I think they made that goal. At least, I liked the lunch very much.

LBD Spring Break Style Challenge

Beautysets - LBD Spring Break Style Challenge

I work on this project for a while now, but now I am able to share this with you. I am so excited to let you know why!

Do you wear this at your next spring break vacation?

Have you ever thought what you want to take on your spring break vacation? Or have you ever doubted whether you have taken the right outfit for your spring break vacation? If you’re still asking yourself what to get into your suitcase for your next spring break vacation, I found the inspiration for you!

My spring break vacation

For my spring break vacation – and that will be a family-weekend of the other grandmother of my husband in the beginning of May – I was inspired by DailyLook. I was thinking: “What can I do with a black dress?”. I know the temperatures will be very warm during spring and then wearing a black dress could be very warm for the body, but it is very challenging to combine a black dress during spring and having no warm body.

In the end I love this black dress, so I made the decision to use this dress for an outfit. Previously I took more classic or chic dresses, but this time I thought to do something different. I like to try other outfits, because I haven’t such clothes in my closet. I’m still finding out my style – which I haven’t found yet – but I am getting there. I only save a budget for when I need clothes and I hardly need new clothes.

My idea about this outfit

O, I created this outfit to go to the forest by day and in the evening just wear the jean jacket and the scarf and you’re done with your outfit for on the beach at night. Yes, I do love going to the forest and yes, I do love going to the beach. I never went to the beach by night. Something for on my wish-list!

I’m a mother too and I don’t dare to wear this dress without a legging. I think because people look at you when you’ve children. And then I ask myself: “Everyone is looking at me, is it appropriate to wear this dress without a legging? People can see my underwear if the dress gets up when there is some wind!”. Maybe I am thinking wrong or I am too afraid of it?! Who knows… It feels wrong. That is why I should use a legging, but for people who really dare to wear this dress without a legging, you definitely should wear this without a legging!

Why did I used those items?

Gauzy Boho Dress: As you know I like more the classic and chic dresses. But lately I also have an affection for challenging dresses with holes from the shoulders. This black dress will be a perfect example for a simple, chic, daily, casual and challenging dress.

Matisse Leather Cowboy Booties: I also want to try a country-look outfit. These boots is perfect for getting the country-look, I think. I’m curious if this outfit will fits me!

DAILYLOOK Bronson Stone Hoop Earrings: To stay with the chic looks, I found these beautiful earrings. And it has a statement as well. Which I love too.

Quay Round Lens Sunglasses: Last two days the sun was shining a lot. Yesterday it was 20°C! So, it was time to get the sunglasses. Unfortunately I forgot mine at the location where I was for a course I was following. I bought a new one today. It was’t looking like this one. This will fit great with this lovely outfit!

Stela 9 Leather Quixote Small Bucket Bag: Who doesn’t like bucket bags? I do, although I haven’t one. It will be on my wish-list. I have chosen the red bucket bag, because I have a weakness for the colour red.

Velvet Heart Gloria Classic Jean Jacket: The jacket jeans are in fashion again, like they were in the ’90s. I always loved them very much. I had one when I met my husband, but when it got holes I dislike it and gave it away. I have so many regrets of it, because I could have so much fun with it these days. And I still can have so much fun with it.

Full Knit Scalloped Infinity Scarf: I am just a big fan of scarfs, but I have’t wear them that much since I have had a bad experience with a scarf. The scarf was colourfast. I then had a whole blue neck… But I have a few of them. So, I will wear them much more often now! I have chosen for this scarf, because it is red and it fits perfectly together with the red legging and bucket bag and the dress itself.

DAILYLOOK Beaded Bracelet: Like the earrings, the necklace and the rings – the bracelet is from gold-looking material which is perfect for the statement of this outfit. I have chosen for this bracelets, because it is easy to combine with the other jewellery or just put it off if you

Classic Knit Legging: To stay with my red colour affection, I decided to create this dress with a legging. Maybe to be save in the creativeness?! Because I am always afraid to get cold, I used a legging too.

DAILYLOOK Double Band Ring Set: I love this double band ring set, because has a gold-looking colour. I love gold or gold-looking jewellery. It has some kind of a statement! And it fits great with this outfit. Like red, gold and gold-looking colour is one of my favourite colours at the moment.

DAILYLOOK Polished Chain Link Necklace: You see these kind of necklaces a lot. I have one myself, but I am not wearing necklaces too much, because of playing the violin. I can damage the violin by wearing it. But for events like parties I do wear a necklace. This necklace is safe for each outfit you create. Mostly – in my opinion – simple is the best.

Bailey of Hollywood – ELLIOT Hat natural: Last but not least, this wonderful cowboy country hat. This will be on my wish-list too. Love it. Have I told you I love the Australian serie McLeod’s Daughters? I truly love it. I think I told you before. This hat finish this outfit perfectly!

I hope you like this post as much as I did. Let me know what you think of this outfit. Do you like or want to wear it?
