Star prints is not a new obsession here on the blog, remember my starry jeans? In that post I promised more prints on prints outfits. It would even be strange not to because lately I only care about printed clothes. This star prints flare pants have a flower power hippy look I could not resist. I have been listening to too much Beatles lately. I even intend to match them with a bandanna one day. Even though the colors are demurely used, they stand out and lighten every wardrobe. Flare pants work best with stilettos. But I am living in a country where stilettos are not welcomed. When I discovered the new trend in shoes, namely the slingback low heels shoes, I was smitten. They are so comfortable and chic I cannot take them off. I even proudly inform you that I do not use the elevator anymore.
Their color reminds me of the waters in Aruba. Right there next to the coast when I had to drink a vodka with cranberries, pretending it’s a Cosmopolitan, to celebrate my first successful snorkeling experience. Or to wash away my stress of getting even further away from the coast. The water plays such a huge role here in the Netherlands. So I thought I would match them with the small man-made waterfall in Paleiskwartier, a district with distinct modern architecture in Den Bosch. With the Indian summer here, the silk sheer top I own for ages but somehow cannot let go was perfect. I would wear this outfit to an afternoon party. For an evening party, I would match the star prints pants with a sequins top, one of those below. And a smart black classic blazer always comes in handy because Dutch weather is not to be trusted.
I have been waiting for a while to post these unique handmade earrings on my blog. I discovered Nach Bijoux in a boutique in Den Bosch. The two sisters owning the French label have a common passion for jewellery. But at the same time their label is a family legacy: their father being the world leader in porcelain miniatures. Having grown up with this know-how, turning porcelain into high-end jewellery was the sisters’ vision. The originality comes from the use of porcelain, alone or combined with other materials, such as gold plated, leather, feather or rope. What do you think? Would you wear these jewellery?
