Interior design inspiration from one of your favorite clothing stores?

Have you checked out Zara Home lately? I often forget it’s even there until a few nights ago when I fell down some rabbit hole, thanks to Pinterest, and landed back on their home page. If you want my honest opinion, I still think their clothing selecti…

NEW IN / TOM FORD SUNNIES

Completely in love with my new sunnies from Tom Ford (found at SmartBuyGlasses). Lately I’m really in to big sunglasses, like my Celine shadow sunglasses. This Tom Ford beauty is a perfect addition to my collection. What do you think?

MY WARDROBE / NEW FAVES

Let me first start by saying: happy (belated) 2017! Hope everyone enjoyed the holidays. Between eating and spending time with my loved ones, I also thought it was the perfect time for a wardrobe clean up. And to putt together my new Ziito Design wardrobe, where I can store all my current favourites. Like my new shearling coat from ZARA, this insanely gorgeous dress from Magali, grey crossbody bag from Rough Studios and my new black leather shopper from MYOMY (found at Marington) just to name a few.. But hey, there is always room for more.. ;)

gift wishlist

A little wishlist for myself for Christmas, although I’d also be perfectly happy to simply spend the quality time with my family, any of these would also do! ;)

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.    

5 mid heel ankle boots

From the last post I shared a few things I liked and mentioned that I’ve been hunting for ankle boots, so I thought I’d share with you some that I’ve been looking for, all with a mid sized heel. When I was younger I remember my mom would explain that f…

for the weekend & things I liked…

image from Kråkvik&D’Orazio

This weekend is already half way over but I still hope to get several things done before Monday, including to finish painting in our bedroom, and make sure the kids are ready for Halloween. My son has known all year that he wants to dress up as Kylo Ren and my daughter wants to be a princess. I tried to suggest a few other ideas to her but she was quite adamant that she must be a princess. Thankfully she received this really beautiful Tutu du Monde dress recently so both kids are basically waiting for Monday to come. I’ll try to take and share some photos too.

If you need a last minute costume idea and a more sustainable one at that, I thought this campaign by Zara about recycling their shipping boxes was clever. Scroll down a bit to the mask/black swan DIY section.

I share this on my FB page recently but I thought I found it to be so inspiring. It is a video for Bugaboo however I loved seeing into the lives of CEO’s Kasper and Sofie Egelund as they’ve moved continents to pursue new markets with VIPP. A leap I’ve often wanted to take in the opposite direction but with young kids I’m too nervous to follow through with.

Currently I’m searching for the perfect-for-me ankle boots. I have a long wishlist but realistically I’m not looking for an investment piece, just something chic and comfortable enough to, you know, be a mom in. These from Jennie-Ellen are seriously tempting me!

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen my Story yesterday of a new book called Scandinavian Dreaming. It has some of the best interiors and if you love Nordic design or just simply interior design half as much as me, this is pure eye candy.

giveaway!

Hi everyone! This week has been slow start but I’m breaking away from talking about interiors for a moment because I have a fun giveaway for a $100 giftcard with Famous Footwear, which you can enter on Instagram by following me and @famousfootwear. Also because who doesn’t love/need shoes, right?

Giveaway lasts for 24 hours so go comment and good luck. :)

Socks are from COS and culottes from Zara.

Thank you to Famous Footwear for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

5 minimal flats

Flats have become a staple in my wardrobe since becoming a mom. I used to love wearing heals before kids and didn’t mind enduring the pain or blisters because honestly I felt a bit more confident and appreciated the added height. It’s not that having kids means you can’t wear what you want, you just quickly see how some clothes, shoes can create extra work or slow you down, like heels.

Here are 5 minimal flats you can wear from now into Fall and no kids necessary. ;)

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).

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.    

favorites from the week

Yesterday was my 9 year wedding anniversary. Of course I didn’t Instagram any of it, so did it really happen? ;) Actually we spent the day alone without the kids and my husband planned the day with breakfast then paddle boarding and later a movie. We saw The Lobster, which I liked except that there was a man sitting directly in front of us with a laughing problem and he would laugh at every little thing and very loudly. There were a few tragic scenes and the entire theater would be hushed and he would just belly lough so loudly. Other than that it was a really nice day.

/I thought I’d share a few favorite newish things floating around the house this week. The dress I wore last night is a micro pleated metallic dress from Zara.
/I have also been searching for a good make up remover/cleanser for a while and a friend recommended this cleansing water by Korean brand Dr. Jart and so far I love it. Even after I washed my face this removed more dirt/makeup so my skin feels super clean!
/Ikea’s Viktig collection, a collab with Swedish artist Ingegerd Råman, is selling out but I really like these glass bowls. They’re sort of a soup or cereal sized bowl but I’ve been using them for fresh berries with breakfast. Their shape is so nice and the glass is thick and crystal clear, not at all tinted like some glass.
/A couple days ago I also picked up the latest copy of OAK magazine and to be entirely honest I haven’t managed to get through the whole thing yet but from what I’ve seen so far it’s full of great material. You can find the previous issue #4 here.
/Lastly, I’ve started yoga & barre classes and needed a new yoga mat so I ordered this extra long white one, though I’m already second guessing my ability to keep it clean! Also, now I need a good strap for it. I’m thinking I might DIY one from leather…?

But being a mom is always my first priority and unfortunately we had some challenging months to deal with. Nevertheless, everything is going great again and we even got to celebrate Enzo’s first birthday! Time flies! PS: Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram from daily updates!

Not So Common, Yet

For Christmas, my fiancé very kindly bought me a pair of Common Projects!! I became aware of this understated trainer brand about a year ago and I’d been dying for a pair ever since. They are very minimal in design, no stripes, no mention of the brand name, just ten digits on the side stamped […]

DEEP V

While attempting just a quick turn to favourite total blacks, I wanted to try out a combination of strict cuts and delicate lines. A touch of deep colour shades is quite necessary when it comes to maintaining a sophisticated monochrome look.     I find it really interesting when the layering comes with such fine shapes …

TRIPLE

Quite often, weird uncertainties arise inside me, bothering, confusing, stressing…just touching base and fading away again. SANS SOUCI means carefree; but it ‘s an irony.     I keep using it that way. Can’t say if I lack self esteem and confidence or if I am an obsessive, delusional perfectionist; I am leaning towards the …

BALMAINATION

I feel I ‘ve got too much to say, but I can’t stand on the balmaination ‘s way. I happened to have an exclusive invitation of the pre-shopping event so I just couldn’t but make my way into the madness!     I’d been eyeing this sleeveless coat since the first presentations started, so I …

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)

RUIN FLARES

I am not feeling like talking too much about this photoshoot. I guess the imagery speaks for itself.

WEARING: ZARA BLAZER AND FLARE PANTS, ISABEL MARANT POINTY ANKLE BOOTS, RAYBAN AVIATORS AND DUFFYBAG X MINI TOTE BAG HELLO THERE! It’s been awhile since my last outfit post on COTTDS.com, or basically anything for that matter. Motherhood is a full time job, and since they grow up so fast I really wanted to take the time to enjoy my little one. (Who is not so little anymore, Enzo turned 6 months already last week!) And keeping up with a blog takes time and investment. The thing is, after years of working on COTTDS.com, I maintained a high standard for it’s quality. And I felt I couldn’t live up to that anymore. Everything needed to be done so quickly ever since Enzo came in to our lives. So, I decided to not post anything on the blog until I could live up to that standard again. Anyhow! I’m happy to kick off a new COTTDS with a cool new collaboration together with DUFFYBAG X MINI. Last weekend we shot a series of outfits with this super cool tote bag, and I’m eager to show you the rest very soon! Also a fun new collaboration where Enzo is starring is on it’s way! Here’s to new beginnings!

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.

INTERIOR / THE (NEW) DINING AREA

Not so long ago I’ve showed you photos of my kitchen area (you can see it here), just before we’ve changed the dining area. With a kid on the way we wanted to have a ‘normal’ dining table. So we’ve did some shopping and this is the result. I’m very happy with how it turned out, especially since we didn’t had a lot of space to use. Squeezed in a little outfit as well. Love this oversized knitted sweater, but definitely don’t love how big it make me look on the photo. Haha. O well, I guess these sweaters are not the best option when you’re 31 weeks pregnant. Only 9 weeks left, guys! PS: Enjoy the holidays!!!

And here we have the full outfit. These photos just remind me again, how perfect this jacket is. Can you tell I’m in love?

OUTFITS / NOVEMBER

And just like that we have landed in the last month of the year ALREADY. Why is time always flying so fast? Which also means I’m starting to get really close to my due date. I can’t wait to meet the little guy that’s growing inside of me, but it’s also becoming a bit scary now it’s all going so fast! Just two more months before my new life is kicking off. Can’t wait!

WEARING: GESTUZ PANTS, HM TREND CAMI TOP, HM OVERSIZED BLAZER, ZARA LEOPARD HEELS, JILL SANDER CLUTCH / 16 WEEKS There really isn’t much to say about this outfit. Besides, it looked so much better in real life (or at least I hope it did). Maybe there are just too many oversized items going on here in 1 outfit. I blame the secret baby bump! But still, it did looked OK when I was wearing this 10 weeks ago. Anyway, sharing this outfit on the blog even though I would rather not. haha. You can not always be on top of your game, right?

OUTFIT / ON HOLD

WEARING: ZARA LEATHER JACKET AND RIPPED JEANS, PRIMARK BLOUSE, ISABEL MARANT ‘ANDREW’ BOOTS AND PS11 TINY BAG The baby bump haven’t disappeared, don’t you worry, these photos are just very old. Took them when I was about 13 weeks pregnant, but decided not to publish these until the word was out. In these photos you can definitely tell that my body was already changing, and during that period I felt a bit insecure about my mini bump. I mean, if you see me now, you can definitely tell that I’m pregnant. But in the first 16 weeks or so you could easily think that I just had eaten too many burgers. (haha)

OUTFIT / NEGLECTED

WEARING: ALEXANDER WANG ‘SOFIA’ BOOTS, ZARA JUMPSUIT, HM OVERSIZED BLAZER, PS11 TINY BAG, FASHIONOLOGY JEWELERY / 23 WEEKS These boots are absolutely my favourite shoes at the moment. Funny, since I have been neglecting them quite a bit. Must be the pregnancy, which forces me to see my wardrobe in a whole new light. But hey, they are back!

OUTFIT / WANG

WEARING: ALEXANDER WANG ‘LYS’ BOOTS, ZARA LINGERIE SHORTS, HM TREND TRENCH AND TANK TOP, PS11 MINI / 19 WEEKS Definitely not an outfit I was wearing this week. Way too cold! Shot this outfit a few weeks ago with my new Alexander Wang ‘Lys’ boots.

WOULD LOVE TO WEAR

Even though the weather is still really unpredictable (sun/rain/sun/rain – choose already!), but this week it’s really starting to cool down fast. Especially now the days are also becoming shorter and darker. So now all I want to wear are chunky knitted sweaters, with a pair of knee boots and a warm coffee in my hands. This looks pretty perfect to me! ON PHOTO: ZARA KNITTED SWEATER, GIVENCHY SHARK LOCK WEDGE KNEE BOOTS, PRADA SUNNIES, FASHIONOLOGY JEWELRY, 3.1 PHILLIP LIM WEDNESDAY TRAPEZOID TOTE BAG
