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! :-)

My second ROMWE sponsored post... indoor due to weeks of rain


So.. apparently, my first post with ROMWE went well and they gave me another opportunity to select a couple of things from their catalogue. And they gave me a 60% coupon code ( RWnatcrys60 ) as well for you!

Again, I chose 2 dresses, a jacket and a t-shirt/jogging pants combo that I will use for my High Heels Dance Classes. Unfortunately, it has been raining for weeks now in the Netherlands, so no opportunity to wear and photograph these clothes outside in nice daylight conditions.

Thus, crappy indoor conditions it is!

The first dress is a simple short black dress with a cut-out. I probably have more Little Black Dresses than I reasonably should, but hey... what's one more on the pile, right?

I got this dress in size L and it is still on the short side. Definitely something for a party or summer's day.. not for a cold day in winter. ;-)

The next item is a pink faux suede jacket. It is a very subdued colour pink (not the bright super sweet pink) and I actually think the jacket looks better when I zip it up. There were some loose hanging fibres that I had to trim, but otherwise.. the jacket (size L) fits well. I would also wear this with a pair of jeans.

Next up is a really pretty butterfly print dress I plan to wear in spring of 2017. I'm a sucker for these kind of dresses, because they create the illusion of hips.. and as I've said before, I need all the help in that department! :-P

Also, this dress was in size L. It's not me.. it's their sizing, I swear!

For my fourth and last item on my list, I again went for something I could use during my High Heels Dance Classes: a set consisting of a striped T-shirt and waist pants.

This was the only item I got in size M, which was a bit better for my confidence. ;-)

Again, my experience with ROMWE was pleasant. I still can't get over the fact that I actually get pick out clothes to try on and to model on my blog and my YouTube channel! And the 60% coupon code ( RWnatcrys60 ) is always a great thing.

You all know I much more prefer filming outside. There's more variety in locations, I can actually walk and twirl and do stupid things. And I think daylight looks better on me than artificial light. Alas, the weather did not cooperate.. so I hope you still enjoy this indoor haul video that I made at home. :-)
