Watch out: Kingsday is looming!

Watch out: Kingsday is looming!

The most crazy day in Holland is just around the corner and every year around this time the same inevitably questions arise. Where to celebrate? (Boat madness? Street madness? Private madness?) How to pull a decent Lindsay Lohan (aka party to the max) without checking into rehab afterwards? And how to sport the must-wear color of the day (orange) without looking like an escaped tropic bird on acid?

Kingsday may be the most frolicsome national event of the year, fashion wise it is a disaster. There is a reason why fashion designers never choose full orange-outfits on any runway EVER. The same goes for footwear, unless you are a sneaker or Crocs person. Dancing, cheering, running around with 800.000 party companions soaking in all the madness will have it’s toll on your outfit (beer showers, canal water, probably rain this year) and your feet (toes stepped on, blisters, scattered glass) so you better be prepared.

I always opt for some cheerful comfy layers and some heels I won’t regret ruining (although NO heel deserves such a cruel fate), wearing a smile on top of everything and making sure my glass (=most important accessoire) is never empty. Then just go with the flow and enjoy to the max. No one ever will be excused wearing bright orange trousers with a tiger print in public on any other day. Be that tropic bird for once and HAVE FUN!!!

Amy Winehouse would have been proud of me.

Waking up this morning (mascara and half a bottle of “Dior Forever” foundation rubbed gently all over my pillow) is proof  that I might not only have looked like her yesterday but definitely partied her style.

Schöner Mann arrived bringing Champagne (how sweet is that: he read on the blog, that my first attempt to bring some bubbly miserably failed), and we went out to have tapas and wine and more wine and more wine… (very Amy as I said :-))

“You look rotten” says “Schöner Mann” jumping off the couch flashing his bright striped briefs, and: “good that I didn’t sleep in my naturals hehe”.
“You must not say that to a lady” mutters boyfriend out of bed (another pair of briefs in my face). “Yeah, but I can say that to my mate, right?” replies Schöner Mann.

OK guys, glad we sorted that out, coffee anyone? :-)

Another two days with the men and I will sport boxers too and high five myself after burping.
