It’s California dreaming! Welcome to the monthly edition of Match made in Seven! We are a international group of fashion bloggers who meet once a month. One of us chooses a theme in turn, and that can be anything. A book, music, a color, a movie. And then we style an outfit based on that theme. It’s fun to collaborate with other fashion bloggers!
This month it was Darlene’s turn to choose a theme!
First thing that popped in my head was, The Mamas And The Papas. I only remember that because my parents loved them, and their records were played over and over again in our house when I was a little child. And then I also thought of this dress. But that made the dress look frumpy to me! So I was thinking, what does California dreaming mean to me. I have never been to California but to me it says, denim shorts, sneakers, white sand, blond girls, Van Halen( no idea why) sea and burgers (don’t know either why).
California dreaming Dutch style
Okay, well, white sand and sea we skip. Most of you do know that I have a lung disease and that makes me not able to go out and find perfect places for the shooting. We skip Van Halen too, they were touring and didn’t have the time to stop by. Ditch the burger, I don’t eat burgers other then the ones I occasionally make myself. And I am not a blonde either! Now nothing is left over! Haha, well we’ve got the shorts, the sneakers and a white tee.
But you’ve got the picture now of what California dreaming means to me, not? Just like jeans look fantastic with a simple white tee, so does denim shorts.
Don’t forget to visit my blogger friends and see how they interpreted the theme of this month!

Would really appreciate it if you would share my outfit on Pinterest! Just hoover over the photo!
I would love it if you could follow me on Instagram!
Well done, Dutch style California Dreamin!!! I think of that song too from the Mama’s and the Papa’s! I say well done Nancy – you look great in denim shorts and your white tee!
Thank you very much!
Those jeans shorts are a great length. And I know this is picky, but I like the roll length. (It’s all about details, amiright?) ?
I like picky! Haha, thanks!
Now that’s the way to have fun with a theme, Nancy!! Talk about the perfect basics!!
I saw the Mamas and Papas perform live, Such fun! I like the California vibe. You could also go Haight Ashbury with tie dye…or wear the currently fashionable frayed hem shorts (we used to do it ourselves). Maybe a poca shell necklace? Love you, your sass and your style!
Thank you very much!
This is the perfect casual California style look Nancy! Isn’t amazing how sometimes putting basics together makes the best outfit? And it’s fun to see you looking more casual!
Haha, I would never wear this other then at home! It’ sway to casual for me!
A simple but good look. I see you walking on the Beach in this…
Never! Just like jeans, I never wear denim shorts other then home.
Perfect way to wear the basics!!
And now you’ve given me an earworm, albeit a nice one as I love that song! I once wrote a blog post using the song’s opening sentence as a title! I don’t think you can get more californian than denim and a simple tee! xxx
Ha! Then stay tuned for a post in two weeks! That has the title of a even better song! Thanks Ann!
Such a fun, easy look…and California is all about ease and being laid-back. You look as great in a casual outfit as one that’s more dressed up!
Thank you Bettye!
You look amazing Nancy, such fun your great pictures! California in Holland, great 1;)
