Simply Summer!

Simply Summer!

Since we all know that the dutch summer can be a little... erg... let’s call it moody, I suppose a little reminder that it’s actually still summer can’t do any harm.That time of the year, where you wake up to a cloudless sky (the only thing “blue” on your mind), 30+ degrees and and the drama of choice which barely existing dress to wear.

Needless to say that it’s also almost too hot to heel, so all ladies opting for flats to avoid Elephant feet in Gazelle sandals are excused. Well, my heels today are Buffalo’s and with a big crocodiles tear I think back of the beautiful summery day I wore them. Don’t we all need a reminder from time to time that it’s summer somewhere?

The fourth element

The fourth Element

I've always been fascinated with water, especially if it’s fermented with delicious grapes and comes in a bottle labeled 'Champagne'. And while browsing my blog archives it occurred to me that most of the top shooting locations were located near a gorgeous water environment. Welcome to my shooting special.

Totally thrown back by the marvelous settings, I started daydreaming in the middle of the winter about the rough windy beauty of Pantellaria, an island I had never heard of before. The memories of struggling in a paddle boat on lake Fuschl on a beautiful summer day and don’t get me started on the most outrageous BEST EVER journey to Brazil, with its dreamy coast line and crystal clear sea.

Everything seems so much easier when you are surrounded by that fourth element, some sun and a decent summery sandal (or wedge). Therefor I might just jump into the bath tub and pretend it’s a wild, untamed ocean. Heels on, and why not pop some champagne too. It’s water after all.

Charm overdose

Charm overdoze

Read more...

My cousin and her lovely daughter (you've already met them) visited Amsterdam this weekend for the first time, and as always when visitors are expected, the city pulls out it’s charm-sprinkle-machine and shows itself from its best (and most sunny!!!!!!!) side.

My credibility in complaining about gruelling weather conditions is completely lost as this first “meet and greet” with Amsterdam was 'spoiled' by 22 degrees, sipping rosés on terraces and beautiful and inspiring views everywhere (read: a lot of shoe-shop windows to marvel at while walking the city). Dutch light bathes everything, playing the (oh so working!) “rom-com” card, dipping the sky in soft rose colors at sunset, matching blushed cheeks due to all excitement. What a charming place this can be when the sun is out, and they still sell tulips in November. Even cobblestones look heel-inviting and no one cares about burning feet after a zillion steps in the direction of the next delicious meal.

My beloved Diva Amsterdam, you have a couple of new fans, and I (again) fell head over heels for your charm overdose. Than again: everything looks, feels and tastes better when you're enjoying it with loved ones. By that I mean people and footwear likewise. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend too.

Love is in the air, flowers everywhere

Amsterdam can be a city with the character of a cat. Weather-wise that would be: really smooth and at ease but just when you think all is good - the claws come out. And I’m just saying that because I’m prepared for everything, any time (aka have my rubber boots with me for that sudden bout of rain - ALL THE TIME). But gosh, the city is beautiful when the sun is out, the claws stay in, and nature does what it does best: getting flowers to bloom wherever you go.

I mean, who would even consider staying inside, and not going shopping for some flowery dresses to flatter that mood? Who would even think of hiding in boots rather than the heels that invitingly smile at you to walk them under trees spoiling you with a shower of petals? Who could not see the beauty?

You just go there ladies. The first step in heels outside your door, with that dress too bright and short, and those heels too high to walk on grass: Spring is in the air, love everywhere!

Sweet love sunshine! How amazingly you reset the “winter mode button” (nesting, over-consumption of dark chocolate while watching TV series, goal: do not move a single toe in a heel) to seemingly long-forgotten beloved activities. Laughing for no reason for instance, or singing loudly while biking in way too tight skirts and indecently high shoes (without any complaining).

You make it so easy to pick up cardio training again (shopping that is) and dare everyone to wear anything but sophisticated grey. The glass of wine enjoyed way too early in your lovingly embracing beams accompanied by the calories 2000-4000 (deep fried snacks): joy, not sin! All the people I don’t even know who greeted me in the supermarket with a happy smile while sporting that family size pack of toilet paper: you make it happen. And the red you put my bank account in (due to all the cardio work): well: isn’t it the color of the season?
Dear sun, thank you! Happiness. Now. Boom.

All that glitter IS gold

All that glitter IS gold

Water and the incredible light (aka inspiration for artists such as Vermeer and Rembrandt to do some doodling) have always been an essential part of the history of the Netherlands. And are the reason why thousands of tourists now flood the city every year to explore the charm of the canals.

Living here, the relationship to all that water (mostly coming from above aka rain) and “golden moments” (aka light, aka sun) is only comparable to that of having a baby though. It will cry and pee most of the time (water, water, more water!), which you try to accept, endure and ignore until your nerves are so tense and your own mood so strained that you simply can’t stand it any more. But the moment baby smiles ONCE, just for a few minutes, you will forget everything and simply stand in awe and pure delight, forgetting everything.

It’s 11 o clock at night in my city, it’s summer and I’m walking my lovely heels (brand: Fersengold, this name can’t be an coincidence!). I am asking you: Isn’t the light still incredible? Isn’t the setting just gorgeous? And isn’t this the most beautiful city in the world? Yep, I assure you: all that glitter IS gold, and it’s all worth waiting for.

My family is sending me hysterical pictures showing the worst flooding in Austria since ages, and (also for the first time in ages) I can only shake my head in disbelief, sending back an update of something which must seem like a bad joke to them: a sunny Amsterdam.

While my home country is drowning I’m also flooded: the most gorgeous smell of sun cream, mixed with the weird plastic odor of swimwear (which fairly enough has been hidden in the closet for too long), plus the scent of the neighbours setting the fire for some BBQ is everywhere in the air. Yes, I couldn’t believe it at first too, but the bright yellow sista (aka sun) is taking a break from hibernation and up again, shining like a superstar and putting a big broad smile on everyones face.

Ladies: to hell with the heels for once: let’s get the flats out (who could resist if they also come in such a cheering colour) and celebrate the heat! P.O.P. the bubbly - it’s summer again at last.
