First of all I want to wish you all a very happy new year! May your coming year be filled with health and happiness, love and laughter. I hope you read a great book, learn something new and kiss someone who loves you!
It is already the last week of 2014, so it is time for some looking back to this year's outfits. Hopefully I will be able to post a few more in 2015!
1) This amazing christmas card!
I am pretty sure it is partly animated, but I would SO buy this for next year if it was a real pop-up card. But 'real' or not 'real', it is still very cool and cute, and worth the watch!
2) This journal
I am not much of a diary person, but I really like the concept of this Q&A a day five-year journal, so I think I'll give it a try. It will probably be a fun read 10-20 years from now!
3) These oh-so comfy slippers
My best friend gave me these super comfy slippers as an early Christmas present, and they have hardly left my feet since!
4) The Inside Out trailer
The trailer of the newest Pixar movie, Inside Out, is just hilarious! I can not wait until it opens in cinemas next July.
5) The perfect Christmas dress
This dress from & Other Stories is just the perfect dress for the holiday season. It works both for office parties, a glamorous night out, and even family gatherings, depending on what you accessorise it with.
And how are your holiday preparations going? Stressing out, or everything under control?
In the run-up to Christmas, I love looking at all the gorgeous party dresses glamorously decorating the windows of all the shops and department stores , the one dress even more perfect for that holiday office party or fancy dinner than the other.... But let's face it: a large part of the Christmas celebrations we spend a lot less glamorous (yet incredibly enjoyable nonetheless) at home with our loved ones, unwrapping presents, watching The Grinch, the Polar Express or Home Alone and stuffing our face with all that delicious Christmas food! But there is no excuse not to do that in style as well, so I gathered in this post several pieces that I think are just too cute not to wear this Christmas ;-)
Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! Today Part II of the Tatiana's Delights' Holiday Gift Guide.
We all have that person in our lives that is the epitome of chic with minimal effort (or you are that person of course), and it can be quite difficult to find a perfect, yet affordable gift for someone who makes 'quality over quantity' their way of life. Hopefully the suggestions in today's gift guide might be of some use there!
So, that's it for today! Anything you are going to add to your own wishlist? My personal favourites are 1, 6 and 9, but to be honest: I WANT IT ALL! :-P
Jacket: H&M Conscious / Sweater: Banana Republic / Jeans: H&M / Boots: Dune London
Cap: H&M / Gloves: H&M / Bag: Modalu England / Earrings: eBay
Happy (Black) Friday everyone! I just wanted to wish all my American readers a belated happy Thanksgiving! I hope you ate lots of delicious food and had lots and lots to be thankful for!
No Thanksgiving here in Holland of course, but only a week or so until Sinterklaas! As we don't have any small children anymore in our family we won't be really celibrating Sinterklaas this year. But maybe I'll just eat some (or a lot) kruidnoten and of course a T-shaped chocolate letter ;-) Unfortunately this year the whole celebration is overshadowed again with the whole debate about Zwarte Piet. If you'd like to learn more about Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet, don't forget to read last year's blog post!
Anyway, back to my outfit! During my recent trip to Poland, I was very fortunate with the weather, although it was pretty cold. When visiting the Warsaw Uprising Museum I decided to ditch my new bulky padded winter coat from Zara and layer up instead. The black boots from Dune London are definitely my go-to footwear this winter! They are warm, sturdy and basically go with everything.
If you are looking for some great-quality chunky knit sweaters, Banana Republic has some great options at the moment. I recently bought two, and I am wearing one of them here. Be aware though that they run big!
I also think that H&M is really upping their game recently with a nice collection of good-quality affordable basics, like my current woollen gloves and chunky knit cap, so don't forget to check them out if you want to stock up on nice winter accessories!
I love dressing for winter! :-D
Hello again! I have been a bit quiet lately, I know. Sorry about that! The last few weeks have been quite busy with a lot of study-related obligations. Doing an LL.M program takes a lot more time than I imagined :-S
Apart from that, my parents had to let go their cat Chagall after a long period of illness. Luckily he was already quite old, almost 17 years, but I knew him since I was ten, so after he was gone I didn't really have much blog-inspiration for a while :-(
Fortunately it is not all bad news though! Last weekend I went on a short citytrip to the city of Warsaw in Poland, which was a lot of fun (read all about it in tomorrow's post), and of course Christmas is coming up! No Thanksgiving for me I am afraid, as I am not American, so I already have been focussing on Christmas for a few weeks already :-P
Last week I already saw a lot of holiday gift guides on other blogs. I always love checking these out, but unfortunately a lot of the gift suggestions in those guides are way too expensive and therefore not really suitable as a gift (unless you are a millionaire of course). As I am still a student, expensive gifts for my loved ones are not really an option, but that does not mean that you can't give something really great! I love to figure out that one (affordable) thing that is just right for that particular person. Something that they will actually really enjoy.
So, to make life easier for you guys, I thought I'd share the results of all my online window shopping in a few holiday gift guides of myself! My personal favorites of this post are numbers 1, 2 and 10 of this post (God, I am totally in need of number 2!).
And last, but not least: I would love to hear what is on your wishlist this year! Don't forget to share it in the comments below!
Sometimes you encounter a coat, that is just perfect in every way... And the Duchess of Cambridge has a particular knack for finding those. I totally fell in love with the Black Watch tartan one by Alexander McQueen, and then again with the dark green 'Angel' coat from Reiss. And now she's done it again, with this gorgeous baby blue coat by Matthew Williamson (btw, she has been wearing baby blue two times in a row now, is she trying to tell us something? ;-) ). It just looks so comfy and chic at the same time!
Looking at Kate's gorgeous coat reminded me that a pastel coat is at the top of my WWW (Winter Wardrobe Wishlist), and it should be on yours as well. I mean, seriously, how much brighter would those dark winter days be if everyone wore soft pinks, greens and blues instead of black, grey and navy?! Below you can find a few of my favourites available at the moment (several of them are available in other colours as well).
So, what if your approach to winter pastels? Absolute yay, or a no-go?
P.S. If you are looking for a good RepliKate of Kate's blue Matthew Williamson coat, ASOS has one that is very similar. A custom made one from the Tatiana's Delights Etsy shop is of course also possible. In that case, be sure to send me a message via Etsy regarding a custom listing!
Happy Friday everyone! Great plans for the weekend? For me it is working on my new 'walk-in closet' again, and - of course - studying (as ever). In both instances I expect to be getting a lot of help from my feline housemates Vashti and Taiyo.
As a self-confessed Crazy Cat Lady, I obviously love products that feature cats, but sometimes it is hard to find cute things that are quirky and fun, among all the cat-stuff that is stuffy, and sometimes downright psychotic. Luckily, cats are hot at the moment. Thanks to the internet and Taylor Swift (the Queen Bee of all crazy cat ladies), it is totally 'fetch' to expose your inner Crazy Cat Lady. To make it easier to do so I thought I'd share my current favorites. I am very much coveting number 8! Wish I had some occasion to wear it to. Maybe there is an annual Crazy Cat Lady Convention somewhere?
