Wow, this was such a lovely day. It really feels like Spring is coming. As we say in Dutch: ‘Ik heb de lente in mijn bol’.
And when Spring is coming, I need to have my spring-outfits ready for action!
So today I started with a black/grey outfit, but spiced it up with a colorful necklage and a light coat.
Actually I’m wearing black all year long, because I simply can not live without.
I really love Spring, you feel more energetic when you’re waking up and you already hear birds sing. It’s like they sing for you and the sun is already shining. Best way to start your day! Don’t let anyone or anything ruin that.

Yesterday, it was the perfect Sunday. Some shopping, having a nice lunch, spending time with the boyfriend and family.
And what is a better way to do it, then doing it in a comfortable outfit?!
I am not really a leggings person, but my velvet one from Modstrøm is just to comfi to resist. Combine it with a long top or blouse to make sure that you don’t get the leggings-wanna-be-trousers effect. This day I wore it with a blouse from Sandro Paris.
Have a good start of the week everyone!

Did I mention how much I love black and white? Well, I simply can’t think about living without the black and white combination. It’s simple, sophisticated, classic, chic. Sometimes it is everything you need.
To complete the outfit for a nice dinner, just wear a very nice, very big necklace. You know it’s a good one, when it is almost to heavy to wear!

This was my last working day before my vacation to South-Africa. It’s freezing outside, perfect time to fly away. I am really looking forward to it and now the only thing I have to do is packing my suitcase (and trying to put my things in my boyfriends suitcase). Let’s see if that’ll work out!
For this last day at work I am wearing a blazer with pied-de-poule design from SuperTrash. I’m having this blazer for years, but still loving it. I am combining the blazer with black coated trousers. Combining these textures gives it an elegant but powerful look.

I just can’t seem to stop matching these tartan trousers (also seen here). I love the black-white combination and today I wore a shirt with linen and lace from Sandro Paris (same as here). I am not really a winter person, so since it was freezing outside I needed my cashmere friend.

Everyone knows the feeling of seeing a something and wanting it really really bad. Like I saw this sweatshirt and I had to have it! It was like falling in love and it swept me of my feet. Oh.. and I saw that leather skirt by accident, now it’s mine.
It’s so easy to buy things, but it’s the art of combining fabrics and colours. I like to combine the skirt with a sweater for a nonchalant look, to create the Sunday afternoon-effect. But the skirt can be chic if wearing it with a nice blouse and some high heels.
Which one do you prefer?
Of course the subject for today’s post was pretty clear: New Year’s Eve, going from 2013 to 2014.
Yesterday at 7 am, I was already in the New Year’s Eve-mood. I’m exited to start the new year with my loved ones and I’m looking forward to all the new adventures and experiences in 2014. Not so long ago I created this brand new blog and I hope a lot of good things will happen to ECILP in 2014.
Happy new year everyone!!
