Casual jeans outfit - meet-up with fashion blogger Eda Guler


Hey all! It's been a couple of weeks.. work has been busy again and of course, watching the EURO 2016 Football Championships also takes up quite a chunk of my time. :-)

However, on the day that Turkey was playing against Spain, I got the opportunity to meet up with Eda Guler from Room XCV. She is from Turkey but has been staying in the Netherlands for a study program. In the city of Maastricht to be exact and some of you might already know that it is a gorgeous city.. though not very heel friendly. But when has that ever stopped me? :-P

As I've said on Instagram, Eda is smart, sweet and funny.. and on top of that.. drop dead gorgeous! It was nice getting to know each other while enjoying coffee/tea.

We walked a bit through the city,.. occasionally finding shelter from the rain. And we ended up in an Irish pub where we watched the football match of Turkey vs. Spain. Don't ask how that match went though!

While we were walking around, we saw a shoe-store with sale signs.. so obviously, I had to get my photo taken. Eda was so gracious to indulge my need for photos.

Also while walking around through the city (just take a good look at the pavement!), I thought it would be nice to have a photo take with a lot of bicycles in the background. This is sooo typically Dutch!!

Naturally, I also had to have photo take with me sitting on the the bicycle.

I don't think it's wise to ride a bicylce though in these heeled boots, right?! ;-)

Anyway, thanks for a wonderful day, Eda! All the best when you're back in Turkey and see you soon! :-D

I have no videos of this casual outfit because we were just having so much fun walking around and watching the game even though Turkey was losing, so I'll just leave you with two most recent ones! Working on the next one, though!

Dotty dottiness


Hi all! How is life? Summer is now coming and I'm already getting the holiday vibes! Still, lots of work to be done before I can start booking tickets and packing my bags. Fortunately, it didn't mean that the last few weeks were completely without glamour. :-)

Earlier this month, I visited the city of Amersfoort together with a friend to check out a museum and we ended the day at a social gathering. Lots of pics to follow, but I start with the last picture of the evening. It is the only one where I'm not wearing my dotty tights because the weather gradually became sooo warm and humid.

It was also the only picture where I am wearing my 'standing still at a party' stiletto heels. However, the parking garage was still one kilometre from the bar.. so I ended up walking 2 kilometres in total wearing these heels. After that walk, I could honestly say... ouch!!

Again, a dress by the brand Steps.. and as you probably know.. I love dots! I'm usually not one to wear tights, but I couldn't resist wearing dotty tights with this dress.

I think the big foot statue would improve immensely with a lovely pair of heels, don't you think? :-P

The museum we visited featured works from mostly contemporary Brazilian artists but there were also historical pieces like maps of the old cities and paintings of the indigenous people. It was super interesting learning all these things about Brazil with the upcoming Olympic Games.

For those who don't understand Dutch.. 'GENIET' means 'ENJOY'. :-)

You could have your photo taken with a webcam.. and they will show it on a big screen in Brazil!

Amersfoort is really beautiful and if you look carefully to the left.. you can see a wedding party having their photo taken at one of the city gates.

A day like that deserved a drink! Hope you're having a great Friday.. enjoy the weekend!

Just a few video clips, because it was all about cultural and social activities that day.
