Dark & Romantic, a Sophisticated Villa in Black

While bright and clean interiors will always draw me in, every so often I come across a darker but still minimal interior that almost persuades me to go over to the dark side. With flat black walls, black kitchen doors, concrete surfaces and deep dark …

INTERIOR / HO HO HO

So, I’m pretty excited for the holidays. Before I had Enzo I actually never decorated our home. But you know, when you become a mom, you get all soft and all.. ;) But I have to say it’s now my favourite thing to do; buying a tree together, decorating the house and have Christmas breakfast for with just the three of us. And with my black and gold obsession, it should not come as a surprise that my Christmas decorations are any different. Eventhough I didn’t had the time to buy any new decorations, I did receive a surprise box from Blokker with all kinds of Christmas decorations. I just can’t get over that golden cutlery. LOVE it! I’m super happy with how my table turned out, it feels like a little party that’s going on in my dining area. During the holidays it just needs to pop! Can’t wait for Christmas morning! Unwrap gifts and have breakfast with my own little family. Thanks, Blokker, for saving our Christmas breakfast with all the golden interior goodies! And, to all my readers: ENJOY the holidays!

OUTFIT / CINEMA

WEARING: PRADA ‘CINEMA’ SUNGLASSES (VIA Edel-Optics), SEZANE ‘JOHNSON’ COAT, ZARA PATENT LEATHER TROUSERS AND KNITTED SWEATER WITH LOW V-NECK, KURT GEIGER OVER THE KNEE BOOTS, CHLOE FAYE BAG Eventhough the temperature is dropping quickly here in the Netherlands, I have to say that I don’t mind it one single bit. The cold fresh air is just what I need right now. And especially when the sun is shining, like last weekend, it’s just so nice to be outdoors (plus I get to wear my new Prada sunnies. Ha!). Can’t believe it’s only one more day before December! Time flies so fast, it’s just insane. Very excited for the Holidays though!! I have to restrain myself to not already buy a Christmas tree and decorate the house with all kinds of Christmas stuff. It’s my favourite time of the year, and I can’t wait to have a first (normal) Christmas with a healthy Enzo this time.    

WEARING / MARBLE CLUSE WATCH

Hello on my favourite Friday of the year: Black Friday. I mean, who doesn’t love shopping with a discount just because it’s Friday, right? I’m all for it. And speaking of favourites: today’s post is all about my latest obsessions: 1. black marble 2. golden details. 3. 1 and 2 in one. Before I was a huge silver lover, and never even wore golden jewelrey. But that have completely changed. So today I’m sharing a couple of my favourite golden items from this moment: like the Cluse La Roche watch, which have a golden case and not to mention that black marble dial. Loving it! Other favourites are – of course – my Chloe Faye bag, Prada sunnies with golden bridge, Mimi Et Toi golden necklace and the Balenciaga Derby boots. Looks all perfect together! PS: ONLY today you can order the Cluse La Roch watch with a  15% Black Friday discount! Get yours here and don’t forget to use their discountcode: CLUSExBF16

INTERIOR / NEW CORNER

Styled a new corner in our living room. Love how the white, grey and black comes together, and yes.. I’m still a big fan of the marble hype in my home. Got the XL lamp, mirror, marble candle holder and marble table at my latest online shop-addiction: Westwing. It’s basically a designer interior outlet with brands like Hay, Zuiver, Vita, Pols en Potten, Bloomingville, you name it. Every day they add new sales and campaigns with different items and brands, so I pretty much check their website every single week (yes, it’s that bad!). Can’t wait until we can decorate our new home! It will still takes about 9 months before it’s done. We just finished designing our new home with an architect, and then soon the building can start. I just can’t wait, it feels like forever!

WEARING / BLACK IS MY HAPPY COLOR

WEARING: ZARA BLAZER AND DRESS, DUFFYBAG SUEDE TOTEBAG, RAY-BAN AVIATORS AND BALENCIAGA BOOTS Just a quick hello from the other side! Hope everyone is doing OK! Thank you for all the sweet and nice comments on my previous article, with the 14 outfits. Hopefully that made up a little for my unregular posting. Still love to shoot something every now and then, like the photos above that we took just before lunch at the College Hotel in Amsterdam. Too bad you can’t really see my super super awesome new Balenciaga boots! My latest shoe score! But you can find a better look at this outfit on my Instagram account (find it here). Anyway, wishing you all a happy Friday!

Denizen Works adds burnt wood cladding to Modernist house in London’s Highgate

WEARING RIGHT: MANGO JUMPSUIT, ALEXANDER WANG FABIANA STRAPPY HEELS, CHLOE FAYE BAG Today I have the honour to speak at a new summer event: Share A Perfect Day in Holland and share some of my styling secrets. For my presentation I picked the theme: travelling. How to pack lighter, smarter and more efficiently. You can’t have too many tips and tricks when it comes to packing, right? During Fashion Week season, or any other time when  I had to pack my bag, the seams of my suitcase always look if they were about to burst. And even when I could manage to close the damn thing, the weight exceeded the maximum weight. And so, the downsizing began and so did the headache. Time for a change! I created a way to pack my bag as efficiently possible:  the 14 days, 14 ways plan. So, how does that work? I will tell you… In this case I picked 7 winter/fall items and 7 spring/summer items from my closet (yes, that includes shoes!). Why, because I want to be prepared for any kind of weather. I’ve choosen neutral colored items so that each item will be interchangeable and will match the others. You might need an hour (or two) to mix&match but I can assure you, it’s really worth the effort. Another huge advantage is you always know what to wear, so you can save yourself some time with sorting out outfits in an overfull and chaotic suitcase during your Holiday! So, from now on: keep calm and start packing! PS: In collaboration with bagageonline.nl, you can use the discountcode COTTDS to receive 10% off your SuitSuit suitcase.

Wenink Holtkamp Architecten transforms old Dutch grain silo into street-food market

Eindhoven studio Wenink Holtkamp Architecten has converted a former grain silo in the Dutch city of Deventer into a community food hall overlooking the harbour (+ slideshow). The Zwarte Silo – which translates as Black Silo – was designed by local architect architect Maarten van Harte and constructed in 1923 on a site adjacent to Deventer’s harbour. More

NEW IN / A CHLOE BIRTHDAY PRESENT

O, yes. This Chloe Faye crossbody bag is finally mine! I’ve been drooling over it for quite some time now. And what a surprise to receive this as a belated birthday present.

WEARING / WHEN IN BERLIN

WEARING: STREETONE BLOUSE, MUUBAA LEATHER TROUSERS, JILL SANDER CLUTCH AND ADIDAS STAN SMITH SNEAKERS A few weeks ago I was invited in Berlin by the German brand StreetOne for a fun design project. We met up for an inspiration workshop in the most beautiful loft. Together with Dutch colleague bloggers: Rosanne from Billie Rose, Noor from Queen of Jetlags and a few German Bloggers we’ve designed a cube that represent “The Shape of December“. Starting on the 7th of December you can bring out your vote on your favourite design. It will be amazing if you OF COURSE can vote for me! Haha. To get a glimpse of what we were doing in Berlin, check out the video underneath.    

BEAUTY / ONE MILLION

It’s golden! One of my favourite perfumes of this moment: Pacco Rabanne’s Lady Million. A golden bottle in the shape of a diamond. What’s not to like? Somehow I always choose this scent in the night time. Whether it’s because I’m going out to dinner with the boyfriend or hitting the town with my girls. It’s just the perfect finishing touch after getting all dressed up and doing your ‘going out’ make up. Or is that just me? Having a fragrance for every occassion or part of the day?

Inside Out

To be honest I don’t think anyone would find the contents of my bag particularly appealing at the moment… if you were to look inside right now all you would find is crumpled Parisian taxi receipts, empty peppermint packets, scribbled-all-over Paris Fashion Week Schedules and an emergency stash of Lindt dark chocolate. But, in a dream world […]

OUTFIT / STOKKE ON THE GO #2

Time for part 2 from my collaboration with Stokke, using their Stokke Scoot stroller. This time for a hotspot with a different angle: shopping! But not for me, for Enzo. He is seriously making us bankrupt, I shop more for him than for myself. Stokke asked me to show you two of my favourite spots and I also wanted to share you one of my favourite stores in Amsterdam for Enzo. My #1 is the store called Big & Belg, but the store Keet in Huis is a little bit more hidden and that’s why I chose to share that one with you. It’s where I bought Enzo his crib, changing table, chair and his very first little outfits. They have all kind of cool stuff, and that’s what I love about this store. Where you can find them? KNSM-Laan 297. Have fun shopping!! PS: You can read all about my first hotspot in collaboration with Stokke here. (including a review about the Stokke Scoot)

For the first few months he will be sleeping in our bedroom, so we kind of already styled it for when he’s just a little bit older. For sure my favourite room of the house!

WEARING: HM TREND TEDDY COAT AND TOP, HM MATERNITY JEANS, LEOPARD KURT GEIGER HEELS, SOPHIE HULME TOTE BAG AND YSL SUNNIES / 38 WEEKS I’m not going to fool anyone, these heels didn’t stay on for long. But, boy, did it feel good to wear some heels again and feel elegant for a change. Especially, after a week of staying in bed watching series like ‘Faking it’ or ‘Orange is the New Black’ for the entire day. Which is awesome too! But… I do miss getting dressed up (besides for my weekly check ups at the hospital).

With only 3 weeks and 2 days to go until my due date. It felt like victory to me! I’m not saying I hate maternity clothes, but it’s not like you have loads of options. Or at least not for the kind of styles that I like. And this suit was perfect for a casual lunch in Amsterdam with my boyfriend. Exactly what I needed.

OUTFITS / DECEMBER

This will probably be my last monthly recap on COTTDS.com for awhile. I think some of you already have noticed that I have been posting less outfits. I’m definitely trying my hardest to still keep up with my blog – and outfits – but it’s not getting easier now I have arrived in my 9 month pregnancy. The days are passing by so fast, especially for me, now I hardly have energy. Somewhere around 8/9 PM my day have come to and end and bedtime starts. Haha. I feel like such a grandma! But hey, we’re just keep on going. =)

RECAP / OUTFIT FAVOURITES FROM 2014

A Little tradition we have here on COTTDS.com is the yearly outfit recap. Picked out my personal favourites from the over 100 looks I’ve posted in 2014. It have definitely been challenging to shoot my outfits for the blog the last 6 months. Starting in June when I had a positive pregnancy test. After that my whole world changed, I changed. Mentally but also physically. The physical changes were pretty intense in the beginning. The first 3 months I was extremely tired and I hardly had energy to blog (or anything else for that matter). At that time my baby bump also really started to show, which didn’t make it easy to take outfitshots without showing it.. After 4,5 (long) months I finally shared the amazing news with you, and I was able to show off that cute baby bump. My favourite accessory for sure! ;) It have been a life changing year for me. A dreamy and special year. And the fun part is that 2015 will be even greater. Can’t wait to meet my little man next month! PS: Curious to see the yearly recap of 2013? Check it out here.
