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 ChloĆ© 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 ChloĆ© 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 […]

After I experimented with my skirt and jeans outfit, which I really loved, I also kicked off a whole (old) new type of dressing for myself. About ten to twelve years ago I loved wearing skirts and dresses with pants underneath but someshow trough the years my taste changed and I stopped wearing it. And now I’m loving it all over again. It’s feels sort of new but also very familiar. So when I was picking out an outfit to wear for Christmas I totally fell for this combination. It’s a dress, so festive, but worn with faux leather leggings for some extra comfort and to give it more of an edge. Perfect for a day spend with family and long dinners.   | Dress &OtherStories | Faux Leather pants H&M | Heels Mango | Bag Dior | Watch Michael Kors | . | Follow me on FACEBOOK | INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |

Yes, sure, the upcoming holiday’s are all about dressing up for me but what I almost never show is that I’m also a big fan of home and sportswear. When I come home I always immediately take off all my jewelry, wrap my hair in a bun and dress down. This usually means I’m wearing one of my many sweatpants and comfy sweaters. Off course, as the fashion girl I am, I always make sure I still look presentable. Washed out, sloppy or old pants and sweater are a absolute no go. So as a result I’m always on the hunt for the perfect suit. The last couple of years I have gathered a few favorite brands, my go to brands are DAZ (also great for sportswear), Rituals (love everything this brand makes) and off course my ever favorite H&M. But back to the holiday’s. The minute I spotted this blue suit at my (yawn) other ever favorite store (yep Zara)( you can yawn again if you please) I immediately saw my self wearing it at Christmas. Not all day of course and only at home. I saw myself being all comfortable yet stylish unwrapping all my gifts under the […]
