Marni and me

coat: Marni; scarf: Vero Moda; bag: H&M
Here's an outfit from a few weeks ago, when I was at a conference. This Marni coat is one of my very few designer pieces, and was this years birthday gift from A.
By the way: I'm really excited about the H&M Divided Grey collection coming out next week. How about you? 


I've been honored to post this diy over at Pays des Merveilles. Check it out for instructions and links for the notebook designs, but also for Jessicas beautiful pictures diy's and a lot of cool projects during the fall special.

I've always loved simple black & white outfits, but ever since I discovered Downton Abey, I've been obsessed with the costumes. But as much as I appreciate Lady Marys gorgeous gowns, It's the servant's uniforms that inspire me most. Just look at those fine little white collars, often made from dainty lace.

I am in love with that Stefanel sweater!
In Paris, I saw a lot of women wearing all black outfits with white collars. Maybe that fueled this obsession. 

Bonjour Paris

 The last weekend was spent in the beautiful city of Paris.
I have to confess to you that I must be the worst fashion blogger ever. Despite of it beeing fashion week, I did not try to visit any of the shows, nor did I shoot any streestyles. In fact, I did not even go shopping except for souvenirs. 
My only excuse is that I had never been to Paris before, and there were so many things I wanted to do and see, that I wasn't even able to fit everything into our tight schedule.
However, there was one fashion-related event I joined, that I will tell you about in a few weeks.
Here are my favourite impressions of the city.

By the way, as a personal note, when visiting the Père Lachaise cemetery, which is truly beautiful, I was really saddened by the disrespect so many people show to the graves there. While paying respect to one person, like James Morrison, they are literally stepping on the graves of other people to have a better view. Or they even write messages on neighbouring graves. Why can't they show the same respect they pay to the person they came for to all other people lying there?

white magic

Ok, there have been way too many cakes recently, I know. But as I told you, I love (roasted) maroni. So when I found this pretty cake, I had to try it. And it definetely made it into my top 10!
Check out the wonderful blog Photisserie for more. So many recipes I'd like to try. And beautiful photography! But I guess it's better for my hips if I take a little break now...

tarte au citron

Loving this nude and yellow french manicure. Somehow reminds me of tarte au citron...
The dress is Marc O'Polo by the way.

pumpkin soup

There are 2 things that I am impatiently waiting for every year at the end of summer, and that is pumpkins and roasted maroni.
I just love this pumpkin soup with some fluffy baguette!
