A few days ago I woke up to a beautiful ribboned box from Rigabelle. I love surprise gifts and surprise gifting, I love the feeling of excitement and that funny terrified feeling at the same time, not knowing what to find inside. It's the magic of a surprise. Since I'm often on the go I started to gift through online gift sites more and more, flowers, cakes and gifts for birthdays, births and just because ;) I think the presentation of gifts is so important since hardly anything beats a gorgeous ribboned treasure and that's one of the main reasons I love gifting sites so much! Rigabelle keeps the surprise a surprise on both ends, you fill in a questionnaire and they will create a beautifully customized gift box like mine. For my box I filled in; Fashion, light pink, light blue, glamorous and slightly romantic and I loved what I got. The DKNY purse is perfect, light pink, gold details and can be worn as a cross body! The teddy bear is so cute and it added a personal feel, touch and sweetness to the box.

Another pink and black look today and wearing my Urban Outfitters x Miista brogues with socks. I think socks is definitely the way to go with brogues, just like wearing a black coat on an otherwise all pink look.

Today's Fashion Blogger Top 10 is like this season, all about pink and candy colored coats! Who hasn't been craving a baby blue, soft blush or creamy white oversized fuzzy coat? We snooped around and found more than plenty bloggers sporting the pastel coat trend and rocking the pastel colors glorious in very different ways!
Check out today's Top 10 Fashion Blogger Pastel Winter Coats!
Simple, classy, unexpected, effortless and most of all chic, Hanneli Mustaparta's looks are always spot on. The plum colored jeans with the candy colored coat looks delicious and we love the sock and loafer combination!
2) Gary Pepper
Nicole looks gorgeous in her big milky white coat. We love how she styled the coat with a longer length skirt and turtle neck!
3) Song of Style
Aimee styled her slightly cocooning pastel coat perfectly with a t-shirt, boyfriend jeans and heels.
Maria's oversized baby blue coat works gorgeous in an all blue jeans look with the silver heels as a perfect finishing touch.
5) Victoria Törnegren
Victoria styled the pastel pink oversized coat with ease into awesomeness with black heels, all stars and even a leopard print.
6) Angelica Blick
Another blogger who styled the big candy colored coat with great ease, mixing the pastel pink with boots, black skinnies and leopard.
7) the Haute Pursuit
Vanessa's powdered pink fluffy pastel coat became an ultra modern, sexy and even sleek item to her looks by emphasizing the coat's cocooning cut setting it against a bodycon dress and styling it with modern jewelry, sleek heels en glasses.
8) Gal meets Glam
Julia's pastel coat is not a cocooning oversized coat but a tailored classic and thus she styled it as one and did so perfectly with a white turtle neck and flaring white trousers.
9) Viva Luxury
Annabelle styles the pastel colored coat with other pastels but keeps the shapes simple and modern.
10) Linda Tol
Linda's keeps her all pastel look with her oversized pink coat effortless, boyish and almost vintage looking with the sweater and socks.
11) Fashion is a Playground
The pastel coat became an all season coat and this fun look with jeans shorts and a blouse makes us happy!
12) Fashion Quite
Ivana's looks flawless with her pink coat, button down and black skinny jeans.
13) A Lacey Perspective
Lacey styled the pastel coat with all things pretty, more pink, sequins and rose gold and it works!
14) Fur Bananas
Jennifer emphasizes the pastel coat's fluffiness and cocoon shape by a tone-on-tone styling and smart use of lengths.
15) A Pretty Pass
Last but absolutely not least on this list is Juule Kay, the pastel pink looks gorgeous with her red locks and we love the hat and doc's!

Some behind the scenes snaps after a photo shoot in Amsterdam a while back where I changed back into my own daily outfit. I dressed for being on the go, my Inkkas sneakers, Frends headphones (for in the train) jeans and a comfi sweater. The jeans ended up being not the smartest item to wear to a photo shoot since they require the familiar skinny jeans struggle, pulling and wrestling to get out of them but they did make for some great laughs :)
wearing: H&M trend white sweater, Zara white jeans, Inkkas sneakers, Frends Taylor headphones

I think I will never get tired of pastel, black leather and miista combinations! Really high on my wishlist is a perfect moto jacket with a more boxy androgynous fit to offset the prettyness of the pastels like these from IRO, Marc Jacobs and 3.1 Phillip Lim because although I really love the studded biker I'm wearing I do think the fitted shape, soft leather and studs take away from the sleek trousers and blouse, so maybe saving up for a perfect leather basic might be worth it.

It's weekend and time for another Fashion Blogger Top 10! Today we look at the Fashion Blogger Networks, many of you will know Networks like Nowmanifest, Freshnet and Fellt hosting many of our favorite blogs but there are many many Networks with amazing blogs and some of them might still need some discovering. For many bloggers joining a Network means a steady paycheck, extra opportunities and a great way to gain a new following but that really differs per blog since experiences with joining these platforms really vary and we see a lot of blogs opting out after a significant grow. Nowmanifest really seems to be a bundling of influence and force while some other Platforms collect their portfolio on new and up-coming blogs, creativity or style. One thing is for sure, these powerful networks cater to the collective needs of these blogs as well to their readers with easy lay-outs, interfaces and of course a way to discover new blogs!
The biggest and most known Fashion network must be Nowmanifest, hosting power bloggers Fashiontoast, Elin Kling, Bryan Boy, Sea of Shoes and Style Bubble.
Another very well known Fashion Blogger Network is Freshnet, hosting bloggers like Fashion Squad, Columbine and Blame it on Fashion.

A Danish Network mostly known for bloggers like ClamourforGlamour, Rikke Kroger and the Insider.
We love the Rodeo network, hosting bloggers like the amazing Maria van Nguyen and Wadood.
Another network we really adore, Projection hosts bloggers like Sophie Frick, Djamila and Memel.
