Enjoying hot spring in a red dress


Oh my gosh, almost 2 months since my last post! Despite all good intentions at the beginning of the year, it seems life and work always get in the way!

While I try to keep this fashion blog relatively light and happy.. I have to say that the last couple of months have been turbulent in a less than positive way.

My apartment got flooded because of very heavy rainfall, two family members had serious medical issues and I'm in the process of moving house. On top of that.. lots of issues, challenges and stress at work, so it's not hard to imagine that on most of the evenings.. I just crashed on the couch!

Anyway, I might elaborate a bit on these things in a later post, but for now.. I just want to express how happy I am with the warm weather these weeks! Apart from that whole flooding thing! :-P

With this warm weather, I just love my cheap short dresses.. and I am totally in love with this red one! I don't have to think about coordinating stuff.. and I can just choose whatever colour shoes I want!

So yeah, I put not one but two pairs of heels in my car for these photos. Black stilettos from Lost Ink (my favourite affordable stiletto heels brand right now) and red stiletto heels from River Island (they have so many great colours). I can't help myself! ;-)

I'll just keep this post short and snappy. So, which colour do you think is best? Or would you have worn sandals or sneakers? :-)

 It's great posting again, hope you all are well!

A very short video with both the black and red heels. I need to film more footage!

Colourful dress and uhm.. stiletto heels in the grass


There we go.. another post of an outfit worn on a beautiful day last year.. my hard drive is almost cleaned up! :-P

Last weekend was the first warm weekend of 2018, so yes.. I was outside pretty much the whole time! My next blog-post and video will be about that but I can tell you already: it was wonderful!! :-D

So, on that beautiful day, I was wearing a colourful dress (relatively short), a black cardigan.. and a pair of black strappy stiletto heels. The heels are from one of my favourite brands, Graceland. Not only are they relatively cheap, they are super comfortable.. and I think they're pretty sexy too!

In fact, they're so comfy and stably.. I felt completely confident to walk over grassy fields.

I even have some footage where I'm walking up a hill.. would you like to see that? ;-)

One of the reasons, I was wearing this outfit for this photo-shoot was because I wore this a couple of weeks before this day while meeting a friend in Amsterdam. Unfortunately, it was a bit too dark for proper photos.

Anyway, about this location.. it's part of what's called the "Nieuwe Hollandse Waterlinie" and it was the upgrade Dutch defence line and along this line, there are many cool forts. Ideal for photo-shoots, I say!

I love visiting other countries, both in Europe and the rest of the world.. but there's so much to see and visit in this tiny country called the Netherlands! And I really hope this spring and summer will be warm and sunny so that I can visit a lot of those places.

So, do you have any suggestions on what places I can visit for photo and video shoots? Let me know! :-)

 Wherever you are, I hope you enjoyed the warm weekend!

This video is less of about walking in heels and more about the gorgeous views that make the Dutch landscape!
