Colourful dress and uhm.. stiletto heels in the grass


There we go.. another post of an outfit worn on a beautiful day last year.. my hard drive is almost cleaned up! :-P

Last weekend was the first warm weekend of 2018, so yes.. I was outside pretty much the whole time! My next blog-post and video will be about that but I can tell you already: it was wonderful!! :-D

So, on that beautiful day, I was wearing a colourful dress (relatively short), a black cardigan.. and a pair of black strappy stiletto heels. The heels are from one of my favourite brands, Graceland. Not only are they relatively cheap, they are super comfortable.. and I think they're pretty sexy too!

In fact, they're so comfy and stably.. I felt completely confident to walk over grassy fields.

I even have some footage where I'm walking up a hill.. would you like to see that? ;-)

One of the reasons, I was wearing this outfit for this photo-shoot was because I wore this a couple of weeks before this day while meeting a friend in Amsterdam. Unfortunately, it was a bit too dark for proper photos.

Anyway, about this location.. it's part of what's called the "Nieuwe Hollandse Waterlinie" and it was the upgrade Dutch defence line and along this line, there are many cool forts. Ideal for photo-shoots, I say!

I love visiting other countries, both in Europe and the rest of the world.. but there's so much to see and visit in this tiny country called the Netherlands! And I really hope this spring and summer will be warm and sunny so that I can visit a lot of those places.

So, do you have any suggestions on what places I can visit for photo and video shoots? Let me know! :-)

 Wherever you are, I hope you enjoyed the warm weekend!

This video is less of about walking in heels and more about the gorgeous views that make the Dutch landscape!

Boots in the French snow


Happy Easter! I hope you all had a great weekend with your loved ones. And I also hope you didn't fall for any April Fool's jokes! :-P

So at the end of January, I went to France on my first snowboarding trip of the season. Most of my days were spent in snowboarding outfits, but I did find some time to get dressed up! ;-)

Just look at all the snow!! According to the villagers of Les Arcs, it hadn't snowed like that in 30 years!!

For my outfit, I chose for striped tights, a warm burgundy dress, an even warmer black coat and a cute hat!

And yeah, it's me whom we are talking about, so I couldn't wear flat shoes! For this occasion, I chose my super comfy over-the-knee boots. They do have a 5 inch heel, but the boots also have a little platform, so it was all good. However, the other people thought I was crazy! :-D

And I would be lying if I said I wasn't freezing my buns off! :-P

The above pic shows how high the snow stacked up.. I'm 1 metres and 70 centimetres and the snow was higher than that!!

I did manage to get a couple of indoor pics without the coat, so you can see the simple cute dress I was wearing.

I did go on a second snowboarding trip in the beginning of March, but to Austria this time. However, on that particular trip, I did not pack dresses and heels! :-P

 Hope you had a great Easter weekend!

Making films while it's snowing.. very challenging! Props to my friend!
