Although we enjoyed the extremely sunny and hot weather to the fullest yesterday, I have to admit I’m more fond of the sunny-but-less-burning-hot, like we’re experiencing today. Why? Because it allows me to wear outfits like this (oh and this weather doesn’t cause me a tomato red head and matching sweaty moustache, I kid you not). Anyway, some outfits I’d love to wear on days like this. Off to do some shopping with the bf now. What are your plans for today?

Initially I wanted to start writing this post complaining the light was too bright for taking pictures today and make excuses for that fact that the pics didn’t really turn out the way I want them to. Or in fact: I wanted to complain about the fact that the weather has been too good, can you imagine that? Yesterday the terrible news about flight MH17 hit us hard and I have to admit that something like this certainly puts all things in perspective. Our problems turn out to be nothing compared to what those families must have gone through. What their next of kins must feel now. I can’t even imagine what must have gone through their minds when they heard the news.
I just wanted to take a minute to give a moment’s thought to the fact that most of us don’t life in a warzone (not mentioning any particular war in here, cause everyone who’s living in war, fights his own battle, his own war), most of us don’t die of hunger and most of us don’t have to deal with planecrashes. Just take a minute. And breathe. You’re lucky.
Last week I attended a couple of shows during fashionweek here in Amsterdam and I thought it would be nice to show you guys some of my personal highlights. I won’t bother you with entire reports of all the shows (you can find them here if you’re curious anyway), but I always love to capture details or outfits that I particularly liked. So here they are. I was utterly excited about the grey boyish outfit with the white sneakers – not only because I was wearing an outfit in the same colourscheme that day and every other day of the week – we saw during the Lichting show, , got amazed by the use of fabrics by Dorhout Mees and I would literally wear the entire black and grey outfit with the long coat at Tony Cohen’s show. Besides that I loved the mens’ shows in general, I have to say I always enjoy them. What are your faves?
Oh the joys of dressing down. As much as I love to dress up (a little..) every now and then, dressing down has always been one of the things I like to do most when it comes to creating outfits. To be honest, I hardly ever overthink my outfits, I just pull something out that works for me, and in this case it was that dress that meanwhile has such a low cost per wear paired with my current favourite kicks + socks combo and a sporty jacket (this actually is a raincoat, a cool one, score!). Furter, I added a cool necklace to the collection (you might have noticed – or not – that I’ve been wearing necklaces, especially those with little coins, charms or tags, after not-wearing them for years. This one has a gun on it, so badass ;)) Oh, and my new tiny bag ofcourse. Gotta get some work done now, have a nice day, lovelies!
