21 going on 15

I went out to buy the New Moon book (Twilight saga, I'm hooked..) and so in the book store I kept searching the titles in the adventure section, then the fantasy section and then the thriller section. But no New Moon. Then the shop-girl was so kind to show me where it was. It was in the kids section. And I felt a little silly, being a grown ass woman.
But still very excited and can't wait to start my intern ship again next week, so I can have 2 hours of blissful reading time every day whilst being in the train to Den Hague.

Early autumn day.

Yesterday was a great morning, it was all misty (not quite visible from the photo) and I took my dog out for a walk by the rhubarb fields near my house.
As I dragged her along, she's old and thought I was trotting her off to the woods so decided to stop walking every 5 metres to convince me not to, I adored the colours of early fall. Lots of bright, dark pinks, silvery greys, pale blues and lovely yellows.

 (My first attempt at making a colour chart..)

Especially the colour of this moss inspired me. 

And the most soothing sound.. the sound of damp dripping from the leaves of bushes.

A good day.

An amazing Day of the Dead shrine, a tradition which to me is the best way to honor the loved ones who are no longer umong us.

Outfit love.

I’m utterly in love with this look; I wish I could dress like this every day. I’m sure I’d feel incredibly feminine. But unfortunately being limited to bike-riding and public transport, rainy Dutch weather, not feeling like shaving my legs on a daily bases and a small budget, means my daily outfit contains of jeans, Chuck Taylors and a simple cotton H&M coat. Not too glamorous or very feminine, but way more practical. (But if going to Chloe fashion show is part of your job-description, I’d say why not!)

Hide out.

 I feel the need to hide in this room..

What the..?

Fashion show or Halloween party?
Either way, pretty rad, Victor & Rolf.

For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.

It's cold outside..

Fall weather has kicked in and I’m freezing. My love for sheer blouses only just started and already I‘ve had to banish them to a corner of closet simply for being climatically useless. Waking up in the morning has become even more unbearable because my bed is really warm (thanks to my super cheap Ikea fleece blanket) and the rest of my bedroom is really cold. And I keep forgetting to put on a proper coat instead of a cardigan, which is rather stupid because waiting on the tram at 8 am can be pretty cold…

Well to make a long story short, it’s cold and I don’t seem to be quite ready for it. Luckily I had an employee sale (meaning 50% off clothing, for staff only) last night and I scored a gorgeous leather jacket, thick cardigan and woolen scarf. Good start, right? Well, I do feel I am in need of a little more warmth to get me through these next few cold months.

And then I discovered this new store on Etsy, and I believe I have found what I'm in need for.

An oversized woolen dress with sexy exposed shoulders, just throw on a pair of tights and some flats and you’ll have instant comfort! Ah yes, I think I will have to buy.
