With flying colours


It's heat-wave time! :-D

My holidays have ended and it's back to work, but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy all the sun that has finally showed up. My job does offer me the flexibility to start early and leave early in the afternoon. And since stuff is still quite quiet... I can actually take the occasional Friday off and enjoy a long weekend. Which is what I intend to do this week!

A couple of days ago, I had a full day planned with dinner with friends, meeting up with another friend at one of my monthly social gatherings and at the end of the evening.. there was still a birthday party of yet another group of friends.

For such busy day, I just try to keep it simple. And for me.. that usually means a Steps dress and Steve Madden heels. :-D

This dress looks like a skirt/top combo.. but it really is a dress.. and like most Steps dresses, it fits very nicely. I guess they had my body shape in mind when designing these dresses!

As this was mainly a social day, I don't have that many photos. I just didn't want to burden my friends too much. Some of you fashion-bloggers probably know how we have to be appreciative with the goodwill of our friends!

It's also the same reason why my video is super short.. and made with my smartphone instead of my regular video camera. I'm sure you don't mind, right? ;-)

Black and white.. just like a cow


Has this ever happened to you? You're looking forward to a couple of weeks of well-deserved holidays and during those last months leading up to it, you're putting in lots of hours to finish all the important work. And then.. during the first few days of the holiday?? Yes.. I got ill!!

Apparently, my body disagreed with my plans these weeks.. and it thought I should chill at home and take it easy. :-)

Now, this wasn't a real problem as the summer has been crap and the number of warm sunny days could be counted on a couple of hands. Nevertheless, if you're reading this, you know that I will use some of those days to go out, wear a dress and heels.. and have fun enjoying the sun. And of course, take photos! ;-)

I think it's no secret that I like anything with a black-and-white pattern. So, I think this dress is just perfect for me! And since I have no hips.. I absolutely love the fact that this dress has a petticoat-type underskirt.. and it gives me a very feminine shape. No, it's not cheating! :-P

Also, I thought this dress would make me blend in with the cows, because a lot of Dutch cows also wear my favourite black-and-white patterns.

But not that particular day! It seemed that there was miscommunication.. and they decided to wear brown-and-white instead. :-D

Obviously, the one thing that I knew the cows weren't wearing,.. were these sexy fuchsia peep-toe heels! Or perhaps I haven't everything yet in this crazy world!

Then again, trying to walk in the green fields while eating grass would be a bit more difficult, don't you think? ;-)

Anyway, for those who are now enjoying a holiday or a couple of days off.. how are you spending it? I hope you have fun!!

This sunny afternoon.. I was mostly enjoying the day.. so I actually don't have that much video footage. Still.. I hope you enjoy the short video.
