Leather with a pop of fuchsia


Here's me with another 'clean-up' post. :-P

I love fashion and coming up with outfits... and I love wearing them and modelling them while walking around in my heels. However, when it comes to editing them.. there is always this reluctance. Like I actually don't want to see how the photos and videos have turned out. Do any of you also have this issue? Or is it just me?

So this outfit is from way back.. and it's mostly leather items with a pop of colour in the form of a fuchsia top.

I don't wear hats that often, but when it's really sunny.. it really is hard to get a flattering photograph of the face, especially without some sort of a fill-flash. If I was a little bit better at editing in Lightroom or Photoshop, I could've brightened up my face a bit. What do you think?

I wore this outfit while visiting Eindhoven and the harbour at the Biesbosch in the Netherlands. I don't know if I'm the boating type.. but I could definitely see myself chilling on the deck while sipping on a delicious cocktail! ;-)

So wearing leather in the summer.. yay or nay? :-)

 My family member's medical has improved significantly.. thanks so much for your support!

As always, here's short video of me walking around in this outfit and these very comfy boots (despite the 5 inch heels)!

Nothing says summer like polkadots and sandals


Another long time between posts! I'm sad to say that the medical issues of one of my two family members have gotten much worse. On top of that (but way less important in the grand scheme of things).. my job has gotten more stressful and busier than it's ever been!

While this doesn't mean that my social media activities are completely down to zero, it usually means that my fashion blog is the first one to be neglected. I do still post regularly on Instagram and Facebook. And usually my Twitter and Flickr pages can be found with the occasional updates.

Anyway, I did of course go out and do fun things.. so here's an outfit I wore when I went on a photo-shoot with a student who interviewed me for her research. :-)

You all know how much I love polkadot clothes.. whether they are dresses or skirts or tops. I've seen super cute polkadot stiletto heels, but sadly.. they didn't fit. Ah well.. can't have it all, right?! :-P

The beautiful location was near Utrecht in a park. Since it was a warm day... drinking fluids was important. Really enjoyed this mango smoothie!

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? :-)

 I do miss posting on my blog, but family is much more important! Take carel!

These stiletto heeled sandals from Lost Ink are just the sexiest ever! And they are relatively comfy to walk in.. just check the video!
