That awkward moment

>> CHECK OUT THE MOST RECENT VIDEO <<

I'm sure most of you with a fashion blog and/or Instagram have had this experience, right? Doing your stuff.. shopping, having coffee,.. and then you realise you still want to have a couple of pictures taken of the outfit you're wearing. No big deal you would think, but then you can't find a nice quiet spot and there are lots of people walking around because it's a Saturday evening.

That was also the case this time, so I just decided to get some photos in the middle of the Christmas shopping market and wait for a quiet moment. And of course, right as my friend was ready to snap a few shots, people started walking past me for like 5 minutes!


The look on that guy's face pretty much says it all! Ah well, I don't care.. these things need to be done, right? ;-)


I was in Amsterdam for an interview with a student who was doing research for her thesis. Lots of rain and a strong wind, so I opted for a casual outfit. You know I'm all about being practical! :P

And just in case I don't run into a Christmas tree in the next week, I made sure I had a pic of me with this one in the coffee bar. :)


I didn't go shopping, but I couldn't resist having a pic of me taken with 'SALE' signs on both sides of me! :D


I also took a quick pic at home before I left, just in case there were no photo opportunities in Amsterdam. I have a feeling this will be my main type of outfit for the coming months when I go outside.


And this is me doing the dirty mirror selfie thing. I never realised how difficult it is to get a good selfie in a bathroom! ;-)


And yes, I also brought my video camera.. so finally some new clips!!

  10. Those boots are so sexy...and they look fantastic paired with those skinny jeans. I can't wear heels because of the foot injury and it is so hard to go cold turkey on them. I miss wearing heels so much! Without them, I hardly know how to walk.

    Anyway, you look stunning! There is a lara croft vibe to this look that I really like...it is a casual outfit but also very feminine.

    I hate when people stare at me when I take photographs...Sometimes they back off when my husband gives them the dirty eye:) ha ha ha ha:)

  11. Haha, yes, I've experienced the awkward photo moment many times. Even worse for me because most of the time I'm using a tripod and taking my own pics. Anyway, you look great and outfit is on point...so no worries!
