If you're Dutch (or if you're from another country and currently staying in The Netherlands) you might wonder why I'm wearing a crop top in December. It seems like most people in the country complain about the cold weather all day long and possibly there are many individuals that think crop tops are only for summer. However, complaining isn't in my nature, this is my all-time favorite top, ánd I got an incredibly warm cardigan that protects me from the cold the other day, so I ignored all of the complaining people and conceded to my desire to wear the top and thereby exposed a small part of my midriff, even though it's almost winter. Did I regret my decision? Certainly not. The outfit combination appeared to be perfectly warm and it was suitable for the various types of appointments I had yesterday so I didn't have to change clothes in between. So here's the life lesson of the day: don't let the opinion of other people affect your choice of clothing. ;-)

It feels like months ago that we took these pictures, but in reality they're just from two weeks back. Being very busy sometimes causes some delay in the outfits that I post, but I think this one is still up to date since it perfectly reflects my current preference for casual wear. On the one hand, these type of outfits are simple and comfortable, but on the other hand they are feminine, chic and sexy. The perfect combination, if you ask me.

During summer I almost always opt for mini skirts and short dresses, but when it's fall or winter I also love wearing pencil skirts. The only problem I have with them is that it's hard for me to find one that fits like a glove. Anyway, things that are hard to get are usually the best things so when I find an elegant midi-length pencil skirt that suits my measurements, I feel like I just conquered the world (and to make things clear: that's a gooood feeling). When I received this one, I immediately knew the top that would look perfect on it. However, it was way too cold for that particular (sleeveless) top so I had to think about a plan B, which was this turtleneck top that's much more appropriate for the Dutch weather this time of the year.

Since you're reading this right now, I know that you took a little break from Black Friday shopping but I'd totally understand if it's just a quick visit to my blog because you're probably very busy with buying your favorite brands in the biggest sale of the year. Therefore, I skip the talking for now - leaving you with outfitpictures that I took somewhere this week - and I wish you all the best with your shopping spree. XOXO, R.

It's already been a couple of weeks ago since it was Halloween but because I didn't show you the outfit that I wore the night of October 31 yet, I think it's not too late to display my catwoman look even though it's Thanksgiving within two days so possibly most people already forgot about Halloween.. ;-)

Mmm, maybe the title of this post isn't perfectly appropriate since the pictures were taken a couple of weeks back rather than decades ago - which the title might suggest. Anyway, it's a shame that I didn't post this outfit before since it includes three items that has to be shown to you guys. First, my new Etro ankle boots. It's my first pair of shoes of this brand and even though you might think they are a little pricy, I honestly recommend you considering to make the investment because they are worth every euro/dollar. They are sooooo comfortable, the quality is so good that it approaches perfection and - in my opinion - they are very very very beautiful. Second, my new sweater that I got the other day. I already own the same one in grey (see previous post) and I'm really happy with this one as well, especially since I think its color is perfect for fall. It matches the leaves when we hike through the forests, which is utterly cool - almost like I'm a camouflaged spy haha (I'm sorry, I couldn't resist making this ridiculous comment). And finally, the last item that deserves some extra attention: The bag. I already showed you this gorgeous Tommy Hilfiger bag a couple of times before but it's simply one of my favorite bags so I think it doesn't hurt anyone if I show it again. ;-)
