Filippa K blue dress (1 van 6)This blue dress by Filippa K (a Swedish brand with lovely basics, using great fabrics) is a recent buy from when I went shopping with Daniela (The Pretty Cute) in Amsterdam. Daniela nudges me towards wearing more dresses and she is absolutely right. I love her elegant style and don’t mind shifting back from skinnies to dresses. Daniela found this blue one for me. Please ignore my cone shaped hair. Hair and me… a constant battle.

And by the way…. no, ladies, I am not going to excommunicate skinnies. I will remain who I am: loving colours and loving leggy things. 

As I was pressed for time and location, one of my neighbours photographed me (thank you Aeila). She took the pictures in her garden. Makes a change from mine.

The long necklace is a gift from Suzanne (Suzanne Carillo Style Files) when she visited The Netherlands last month. Combining this dress with fuchsia was my own styling for once (so proud of myself).Filippa K blue dress 10For a splash of colour, this shopper bag is perfect. Bought at the market together with Sylvia (40+Style). Actually she discovered these shoppers. While she was eyeing a green one, I snatched the bright fuchsia bag (I can be so mean!). The stitching on the sides and at the top is multi coloured, which is fun.Filippa K blue dress (1 van 6)-2Not a spectacular change but the dress also works well with this big gold plated perspex necklace (see below). The dress is an easy throw-on. You don’t feel you are wearing anything (which could be hazardous…,,.)Filippa K blue dress (4 van 6)
