THREE TIMES NINE

First you count the hours, then the days, the weeks and finally months. And then suddenly one day, bam, your baby is one year old. Where did the time go? And now, it’s already 6 months ago my not so little baby girl celebrated her first birthday. And because time seems to move faster and faster there is nothing more I want to capture these special moments. So from Chloé‘s birth we have marked these milestones with special photo shoots. I really love to do these kinds of special shoots and I can only hoop the pictures one day will make Chloé just as happy as they always make me.   | Me: Shirt FILIPPA K | Skirt SANDRO | Heels ZARA | Chloé: Dress H&M girls | Shoes ZARA girls |

STYLIST

One of the best parts about my job is that I get to watch a lot of fashion shows. Not live, as I only tend to get few invitations, but I always have a front-row seat from behind my own desk. Attending a real live Chanel show is still my biggest wish (fashion wise) but that’s a total different story. For now I just wanted to tell you about what I have learn from watching fashion shows. On and off the runway it’s all one big pile of inspiration, a great learning school if you know how and were to look. Because, for the most of us all the looks we get to see are totally out of reach, budget wise, but styling wise there is al lot to learn. And the best part, it’s all for free. Like for example the way I’m wearing this scarf. I immediately fell for this look when I saw it on the Burberry runway 2 years ago. And I still love it now. And this is just one of them. So next time you watch a fashion show, real live or online, watch closely and release your inner stylist.   | Dress ZARA | […]

SALE SCORE

Sale, you either love it or hate but you can’t hide from it. And that’s exactly why I’ve turned myself into a sale lover. Back in the days, when we could only shop in stores haha, I really hated this time of year. Messy stores and crowded streets, not my type of shopping. But ever since I started shopping online I also started to love the sales. Nothing beats sale shopping out of the comfort of my own home or office. And over time I have learned a few tricks as well. For one, I have subscribed myself to the mailing-list of all my favorite stores so I know exactly when the sale starts and when to get the best discounts. Then, when I spot something I love I always ask myself 1 question; would I buy it if it was not on sale? If, the answer is NO than don’t do it. You will not be happy in the end. And last but not least, stick to the basics and things you are sure of to wear over and over again. This way you would be buying anything just because it was on sale. And so that’s basically how this […]

DRESSCODE

Can you wear a coat as a dress? Of course you can. Just simply put on a pair of opaque tights, add a belt and a pair of fabulous heels. No one will notice the difference.   | Coat and Sweater ZARA | Tights WOLFORD | Heels SOPHIA WEBSTER | Sunnies PRADA |

JOIN THE CLUB

The first time I spotted this jacket it immediately made me think of the Pink Ladies from Grease. So if I ever wanted to start my own Girl Squat this jacket might as well be our uniform. Because if you’re a part of our squat you A; love black and B; love shoes. So if you feel the same join me 😉   | Jacket NIKKIE | Sweater ZARA | Pants H&M | Heels ZARA | Clutch H&M |

SHADES OF GOLD

So then it’s already time to write the last post of this year. I just can’t believe that this year is almost over, so yes, time does fly when you’re having fun. The past year was nothing but great for me, being a mama was on my wishlist for a very long time and it has been such a blessing to be one for a whole year arround. Nothing has ever felt quite like this before, not even my first Chanel purchase can match this if you know what I mean. And the best part of all is that I finally feel like I’m in control. A year ago I never imagined myself balancing it all, a family, a career, a blog and a social life. It all seemed just to much and I decided for the first part to just focus myself on the important things in life, my family and my own wel beiing. But, once I got the hang of it and I was feeling more in control and at ease with my life something really started to itch. Like so many times in life, you don’t know what you’ve got untill it’s gone. I realized that […]

ALL IN TWO

For me Christmas is all about old and new traditions. Old traditions like dressing up and having dinner with my family and friends and new traditions in the making. As a mama I love to start new traditions, that hopefully Chloé will remember and maybe continue once she gets older. One of the new traditions we are starting this year is adopting the typical American way of spending Christmas morning opening up presents underneath the Christmas tree. And off course we do it in style. No old pyjama‘s or washed out lounge-wear for us, but brand new, all black, easy going lounge-wear. For me it’s a comfortable 2 piece from Zara and for Chloé a cool onesie from H&M. Because creating a tradition is one thing but looking good while doing so is just as important to me, especially when pictures are being taken. Can’t wait to look back in about 10 years from now. Then, I want to wish you all a fabulous Christmas with all of your loved ones and all of your favorite traditions. Hopefully you will also enjoy some great memories and traditions in the making.   xo Hanneke     Me | Sweater and pants […]

RED

Finally, the holiday’s are upon us, my favorite part of the year. For me this is where it all comes together, fashion technically speaking. I just love winter clothing more than summer stuff and off course these days it’s totally normal to go all the way with sequins and glitter. Even during the day nobody will raise an eyebrow when I’m wearing my favorite party pieces. Except maybe a some man or two. And then I fell in love with this cute LBD from Maje. Simple and chic, no glitter and no fuzz. Perfect for daytime festivity’s like work related Christmas dinners or cocktail-party’s. So hereby I declare the party season opened. | Dress MAJE | Heels CHANEL | Clutch ZARA |
