Green Loafers With A Moustache

In July I saw very cute pink loafers with a moustache at the Zara. I really loved them and the search for these loafers started. Unfortunately I didn’t found them and they were sold out online. So I decided to not think about them anymore. But that didn’t help.

Until my mother saw these loafers; dark green with a gold moustache. I am not a big fan of green, but I thought why not. Luckily they had them in Arnhem last week. They are very cute and I am so happy that I have them. Even though I would love to have them in pink, green is a different color and this is also my first pair of dark green shoes.

What do you think of my new shoes?

This Is Koos

When designers give their labels a unique and fun name you score extra points! Just because I love to be curious about the brand name and want to know more about the label itself.

Today I want to talk about the brand, “This is Koos”. Koos was born in Amsterdam, at the kitchen table between a cup of coffee and a stack of sketches. Koos is the child of a dream that lasted for nearly twenty years. It is inspired by Japan and grounded in the Netherlands. The motto was to make something simple to do something different. I really see this back in the collection.

The items are inspired by moments, like art, literature, music and nature. Colors are like nature and I love the fact that they make their collections in natural colors.

Weekly Journal

Because it's getting colder you can wear a beanie and scarf again. I love it. This week I watched the new episode from my favroite serie Pretty Little Liars. I start watching Gossip Girl, this is also a great serie.

I did some shopping at the Zara and bought these lovely dark green loafers with a moustache. Besides that I bought an oversized cardigan and white blouse with black details. Hopefully I can show you it in an outfit post. Have a nice week. With love, Manon.

I got four pink wines glasses from my grandmother, love them

Massimo Dutti NYC Collection

If you like natural colors and cashmere I think Massimo Dutti is a great brand for you. I love the black and khaki colors together. In my opinion they stand for style and classy. This limited edition is available for a period of time.

Webshop Tip: BeautifulPaperShop

Notebooks I love them. Ever since I was a little girl I collect notebooks. For me it is nice to carry a notebook so that I can write down the things that I have to do, quotes that I love and just some chimeras.

For a while I was searching for a unique and new notebook. I have a little black notebook with me every day, but I thought it was time for a new one. Because I carry it every day it has to be a normal size. I love large notebooks, but they are too heavy.

Last week I received a mail from Peggy from beautifulpapershop.com and she told me more about the notebooks from Ciak. I have to admit that I had never heard of this brand. But when I saw the photos I fell in love.

I saw the lined pink pitti in medium and I knew that this was the right size for me. This notebook is handmade in Italy and I love the cover. It feels like soft leather. Also the paper feels great, I love the smell of new books.

The notebook is perfect and there is a little detail that I want to share with you. My name is embossed on the cover, so cool. Hopefully I can write inspiration for the blog, nice quotes and things I have to do in this notebook.

You should definitely take a look at the webshop from beautifulpapershop.com. It is a lovely shop and I’m working on a new wishlist.

I love to discover new shops. Most of the time I find them on the internet and it depends on the look and feel of the website if I am going to visit this store. When I saw the website from Cottoncake I fell in love with the look of the shop and the way they present their items online.

When I look further on the website I saw that they have their own lookbook. Each season they create their own Cottoncake lookbook where they show the highlights of their collection. It is more a snapshot of Cottoncake and their style.

The shop is located in Amsterdam I am sure I will visit this store soon.

Favorite Shoe Models

Shoes and bags are my number one fashion item. I love the browse on online shops and find new trends. For the coming winter I have a few kind of shoes that I really love. The loafers are still one of my favorite, but they are a little to cold when it’s freezing outside.

Since a few years I really love ankle boots. I can say that I am more into ankle boots than long boots. Also brogues are one of my favorite, they are a little bit masculine and that is what I like about them. Besides these three shoes in the weekends I love to wear allstars. They are very comfy and easy to wear. What are your favorite pair of shoes?

All available at Spartoo. (‘schoenen’)

Shoes above are from Clarks, Betty London and McQ by Alexander McQueen.
