Over-the-knee boots during a summer storm

Last weekend we got invited by Manzo Suites in Zaandam: a gorgeous boutique hotel (insanely gorgeous!) near Amsterdam. And since we’re not really living close to Amsterdam, we decided to finally do all things touristy (we never really did before. Strange isn’t it: how you take your own country for credit?). So visiting museums and having outrageous lunches and dinners was on the agenda. This sounded like a solid plan, until we saw the weather reports… Summer storms. But somehow we got lucky: public transport was still up and running when we had to use it (which was a small miracle in and on itself as right

Who needs walls when you can have windows?

“The best architecture combines aesthetic beauty and functionality in a perfect whole” according to architect and designer Robert Mills. And who are we to disagree? Especially when the end result includes windows that are completely replacing walls. It makes you wonder: why do we have so many walls to begin with? Okay, I guess living in a city isn’t the best situation to go all out on the window department. But a slightly bigger window wouldn’t hurt anybody right?

Yep, not going to happen in a million years. But… I do own a white blouse dress and tan sandals. Mmm… Maybe I can give it a try the next time

Large windows & marble table tops

Every time  I see houses like this one – with enormous windows – I get jealous. Would love to one day buy an open space with windows from floor to ceiling. And throw a marble table top in the mix as well. And incorporate the fire place in the design of the windows. Dream on…!

Outfit: camel tones with PHO London

A silk dress and wool coat combo was something I never imagined wearing: when would the temperatures ever be cold enough for a coat and warm enough for bare legs? But last Monday, while paying a visit to Utrecht in honor of my sisters birthday (cute Dutch city, highly recommended!), it turned out to be the perfect combination. I’m also wearing something else then my usual color pallet; more and more warm tones have been entering my closet. And while browsing through the webshop of PHO London (who carries brands such as Charlie May, now on sale!), I decided to take it
