As you might have noticed I did not post anything for some months. This is because taking outfit photographs is not really my thing and also not my boyfriends thing.. He has to go out with me taking pictures every time of course.
I sometimes felt so weird posing in the streets. I thought I would not care if people stopped to take a look at what we were doing, but I did. I felt pretty superficial and sort of arrogant. Although I felt this way, loving clothes is not necessarily superficial. You can enjoy anything, as long as you'll keep in mind that there is much more to life than just owning stuff. Happiness comes from other things.
I do love clothes and I enjoy wearing them, maybe that is enough for now.
Sometimes I will be taking some pictures and if you're interested in seeing them, check out tumblr or instagram. You can follow me if you like.

I am sorry for my absence these two weeks, but I was so crazy busy. Apart from doing my everyday things and more I try to find out what I want from live and that is a pretty heavy journey. I think it is so important to be happy with every aspect of what you are doing. I really want to keep evolving to shape my life into perfection or something close to that. You are in power of your own life, so work for it! Today was a nice and calm day, which I needed catch some breath, but I also had some time to take these pictures!
About those: I loooove this skirt and jacket! The material of the skirt is very special and feels so great when I am wearing it. I am a huge American Vintage fan for some years now, the fabrics they use are the best. The jacket was a good find at costes. It is a store that does not interest me that much, but I just happened to walk in one time and found out that a little searching there really pays off.

So today it was one of those sunny days and I love those like other Dutchies do, but I have this crazy boyfriend who does not care. (and also some shade loving friends, they are kind of recalicitrant) So I went to the movies today. Yes that's a twist to the story. But I did saw one of the most beautiful films ever. Boyhood. It is by the same maker of 3 other films I just love: Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight. Boyhood took 12 years to film, so you see the characters becoming 12 years older within 2,5 hours, which gives a fading sense of time. Go see it! Even if the sun is out!

Walking around in winefields in the Provence (south of France) we ended up in a small wine village. All it had was wine caves, wine stores, some houses, an old castle on top of the hill and we found a little completely crowded family restaurant were we had such a nice dinner. I started reading the book 'Eat, Pray, Love' this holiday, and I think I was still reading the 'eat part' of the book at the time, so I could relate a lot more to it just enjoying eating good food in a nice and sunny place. It is all the main character does in search of pure pleasure the 4 months she spends in Italy. I did not drink wine though, I am the only one amongst my friends who does not drink alcohol. Not for much of a priciple reason, it is mainly because I never learned to appreciate te taste of it and I don't need it for joy or something like that.
I bought the sandals and bag I am wearing in the pictures a few days earlier on a hippy market in Florac, Massif Central. Great handmade stuff for a nice price, loving that off course.
