Grinning like an idiot. That’s me most of the times. Suffering severe cold temperatures in this green print T-shirt dress. Yes, T-shirt dress. Nothing warm about it. Standing in this wind-free corner it wasn’t too bad, but there were other moments when the wind was freezing and my skin had goose pimples. Even Ron, fully dressed with coat, got back in the car afterwards and said: “Oh let’s go home immediately, I am freezing”. You can imagine how it was for me. I did wear a skirt and T-shirt from Bellamy Gallery underneath it, otherwise it would have been too cold.
My outfit of this week is thrifted at Kat & Ko in Haarlem. They have good stuff. The dress was €18,95 and the orange bag by Jill Sander was €18,00. OK the boots were retail price. I have to save my money until I have paid back my “loan” to my saving account. Going to a second hand shop and scoring like this, is my way to survive this period, which is going to last till May.
Below: Right, let’s get this show on the road…
See what a grim look I have on my face when I don’t smile?
Below: The boots are the ones you saw in this post with the wide trousers. There is a small green width in the middle of the dress with a drawstring. You pull the dress up to a comfortable height and then drape the top part over the string. In this photo below you can see the string. Never in a million years would I have thought I could wear such a dress. Thinking it would really show my tummy. Surprise !! It doesn’t show any lumps, bumps or belly. I have no idea why not, but gladly accept this wonder.
Below: We started near arch windows at a random building. Charlie, our dog, photobombed. As usual.
Below: Isn’t she adorable? The breed is called Korthals Griffon, Dutch of French origin. They are hunting dogs and usually larger. Of course Charlie never caught anything because we avoid that. She is very fanatic about mice under trees, but before she can dig them out, we move on.
Below: Outfit more closely. I decided to wear the chain necklace with the dress to avoid a bare neck. The watch is a present from my husband years ago.
Below: Moving to another background and fixing the hair.
Below: Details. Jill Sander bag. I am really pleased with this bag; it is beautifully made and a great vibrant colour. The bracelet is from a Spanish stall at the beach, chain necklace from an artisan market in Paris.
Below: We decided to try some green background and a bohek photo (blurry background). “Come on Charlie, work with me. Face the camera.”
Below: Nope. Dog is clearly thinking “I have no idea what you want from me, woman.” My nose has gone a little red from the cold.
Below: A walking photo is aways nice.
And with this I end today’s post. No idea what next week will bring. Having some knee trouble at the moment, but it is already diminishing. No high heels for a while (rats!!). Although I could always last a photoshoot on heels.
