Casually red with over-the-knee boots in Rotterdam


So, the last post was about outfit material that I hadn't yet posted, but obviously I don't sit still during the winter weekends! Especially when it's not raining and/or snowing. So there is also new stuff happening here. :-)

A lot of people know and love Amsterdam and so do I. However, when it comes to having that big metropolitan vibe with all the hustle and bustle.. there is no Dutch city better than Rotterdam.

For the outfit, I went with a red jacket, some grey skinny jeans and these gorgeous black leather over-the-knee boots from Buffalo. Seriously, they may be 5 inches high.. but these are one of the most comfy boots I own!

You might have seen this photo on my Instagram, but I wanted to share it here as well. It is just a perfect example of the Rotterdam skyline.

This quick photo-shoot was at the end of a long day. In the winter, the sun goes down so quickly.. and I keep forgetting that! On top of that, the batteries in my flash were dying.. so these were the only photos we could squeeze out! Ah.. fashion blogger problems! :-P

So, what do you think of those boots? Too much with this outfit or does this work with the grey jeans and red jacket?

Anyway.. it's Wednesday, so it's only a couple of days until the weekend! ;-)

Just a bunch of clips of me showing off walking in these gorgeous boots! I really need to wear these more often.. not just in the winter, but also during spring and summer! :-)

Forgotten pink and white


It is still November, but soon it will be December again! And for the Netherlands, that comes with a lot of freezing temperatures, wetness (both of the rain and snow variety).. and holidays! First, the Dutch children's festival of Sinterklaas on the 5th and then, of course, Christmas and NYE!

For me, it's already a time to reflect on how tumultuous 2016 has been and also,.. to think about how I did or didn't finish my list of goals. It is also a time, to look at my collection of photo and video material on my computer and start posting some of the outfits that I never got around to.

Now, I really like this outfit! I think the dress is cute with the pink and white colours. And I wanted to style it with only black items.. so choosing the bag, jacket, scarf and heels was quite straightforward.

The trouble that day was that when I wanted to photograph and film this outfit, I couldn't really find an inspiring location. And thus, I didn't have that many interesting and distinctive photos to begin with.

You fashion-bloggers out there probably know that a couple of weeks later, you have so many more new outfits captured on camera! And then you will post those outfits and then other new ones.. and so it goes on! :-P

So yeah, I didn't want these photos to go unused.. because I really loved wearing that outfit on that sunny day! Let me know if this is something familiar to you too. I'd love to know!

Well, this was it for today.. wishing you all a very happy Sunday!! :-D

Sometimes, if the location is not that inspiring, I also find myself lacking interesting ideas of what to do in a video. This next video is probably one of them. Nevertheless, I hope you do enjoy it! :-)
