The cold winter... boots and tights!


It's almost February... is it too late to wish everyone a Happy New Year? Well regardless... I just hope everybody had a great holiday period and an amazing start to 2017!

My January started very busy with some work that needed to be finished in the first week. And the reason for these deadlines was that.. last week, I was travelling to Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore for some business meetings. And soon, I will be travelling to France for some snowboarding!

Yes, I lead a very hard life sometimes!! :-P

So, it's January. And while 2016 may have been one of the warmest years in human history.. it still feels freakin' cold outside! I'd rather be inside on my couch wrapped under a blanket, but hey.. I also love getting dressed up. And one of the few advantages of low temperatures,.. I can wear boots and tights!!

Now, I do wear boots in the other 3 seasons, but most of the times I'd rather wear pumps or sandals. And you all know I always prefer to go bare-legged when it's warm. But these patterned tights are just too cool! :-D

I did wear a white top.. just in case you thought I had gone 100 percent total black! ;-)

Here's a close-up of those tights. I really should wear those more often, right? What do you think?

So, what are your plans for 2017? Any wild dreams? Awesome goals? Let me know! :-)

I wore this outfit in the city of Rotterdam and I really think the industrial harbour atmosphere fits this black outfit. And so I really made sure I had enough material for a video! Enjoy!

Three summer dresses - sponsored by Shein


First of all, I hope everyone had a great Christmas weekend! Mine was spent at my parents' place with lots of good food, general cosiness and lots of Christmas movies including classics like Home Alone, The Santa Clause, A Muppets' Christmas Carol. :-D

I had two sponsored posts already.. and this 3rd one is courtesy of Shein. I chose 3 cute dresses, but uhm.. they're more suited for hot summers! Obviously, it would not be very useful to delay a post like this for 6 months after they've sent me the dresses, right?

Thus.. once again, crappy and boring indoor photos it is!

The first dress is a short black dress with a split on the sides. My motto: one can never have too many LBD's!!

I got this dress in size M and just like previous LBD I got from another Chinese web-shop, it is still on the short side. One of the main reasons I wore these patterned tights with it. ;-)

The next item is navy sleeveless ruffle dress. When I think about having lots of cocktails on a beautiful warm summer night with my friends, I think about wearing a dress like this!

For the third and last dress, I chose something that I actually could wear in January or February, an army green casual dress. The long sleeves will make sure I won't be too cold. The dress is still short though! ;-)

Whenever I get free clothing or shoes, whether it's from a good friend or a company, the first thing is that I'm always grateful. It won't change my opinion of the items themselves.. but I won't deny that the feeling itself is a very nice one. :-)

My experiences with Shein was very pleasant. They were very patient as I received these dresses 6 weeks ago, but I just did not have the time. Anyway, here are the links if you want to check these dresses out!

As I've written before: I like filming outside. Sadly, due to the very bad and cold weather and lack of time.. I couldn't do that. So this time, I chose another part of my apartment to change things up. Hope you still like it!
