Modern vintage summer style: in the office v.s. out of office

When it comes to modern vintage style, my closet is filled with all kinds of retro clothes. But like every woman, I sometimes also stand in front of my closet spending wasting time thinking about what I want to wear that day. Especially on a summer day in the office. So many modern vintage tropical summer style options, but…not everything is suitable.
On a warm summer day, I always bring a cardigan to the office because although it might be 25 degrees outside, it’s never 25 degrees inside. The same applies to hosiery. I always wear 8 dernier (summer) tights, because airconditioning ruins office life.

5 reasons why (mini) hats should make a comeback in everyday fashion

When it comes to retro fashion I am a big fan of certain accessories. Today I want to shine some light on (mini) hats. I love them for several reasons, but here is a list of 5 reasons why (mini) hats should make a comeback in everyday fashion:
1. Instant Rainproof
A big floppy hat is perfect for those rainy days. And we have a lot of those in the Netherlands. Besides that, it also gives a little bit of protection to your styled hair. Not always applicable if you have long hair by the way. So I usually tuck my hair in my coat during winter days. Of course wind is definitely not a hat’s friend. So in that case, buy a hat that isn’t gone with the wind in a few seconds.

5 reasons to wear tassel earrings

I have to admit it. I like big earrings and I cannot lie. Next to the classic pearls, big earrings are my best friends when it comes to my favorite modern vintage accessories. I do like them a little bit different. For a typical oriental meets retro look, I often use Indian style earrings. You may have seen some examples in my blog post about my Oriental meets Retro looks.
However, Indian earrings are often heavy, not very wearable for more than a few hours and most importantly: they have ripped more scarves than I can count. So I leave those for the Spring and Summer days.
