I like birds

I like birds. Great tits especially. I know it sounds weird in English, but in Dutch they are called ‘Koolmeesjes’. I have always loved this bird since I was a little kid. They always stood out from the other birds, they made me smile and just happy. So I decided a couple of years ago I needed a tattoo of one. And I’m still super happy I got one! Before I got one I looked up what the represented and I found this: Truth, reality, acrobatics, cheerful, sunny and carefree. A lot of things I value a lot and some I wish I was (carefree).

I listened to Eels’ ‘I like birds’ a few days ago, that I used to listen to all the time, every day, and again, remember from our holidays with the fam. And it made me so happy again, I just had to dance to it. It’s spring, it’s sunny out (some days), the birds are singing and nature is beautiful. So once in a while, turn up the volume and dance, dance like no one is watching.

Pinafores and pins

Is it a secret Ariel is my favorite Disney princess? I had to do another outfit inspired by my favorite mermaid. Isn’t this pinafore the perfect Ariel red? I ordered it from H&M a while ago, together with the same pinafore in black. The shirt is an embroidery project, my precious Ariel pin is from our trip Martin and I had to Disneyland Paris. And of course my lovely mermaid shoes!

Most people have a favorite Disney princess, I grew up with ‘Beauty and the Beast’ as the only Disney movie to watch. I absolutely adored that movie, I’ve watched it so many times when I was younger and to this day I still love the movie to bits. At the same time I’ve always loved the idea of being a mermaid, tail and all, swimming and singing in the water exploring the ocean, meeting the sea animals. Throughout the years my love for mermaids and thus the Little mermaid movie grew. And I have to say that Ariel took over Belle’s spot as my favorite Disney princess. Since my blog is called ‘Let’s be mermaids’ I wanted to do an Ariel inspired look for my blog today.
