How to get up and get dressed #12: Autumn Coolness

September 29th, 2014

The last week of late summer started with clouds and a grey sky nobody will envy us for. It’s not very cold nor does it rain but neither do we see a glimpse a sunshine. So there is no better way of starting this autumn weather than dressing accordingly. I had a lot of training wearing my wool stockings, high boots and winter felt jacket this summer already. This combination of cashmere, felt and leather is my favorite so far. If possible I wouldn’t take of this pullover anymore for some time in the future but life is not fair. Your best things won’t last forever and the worst always hide in the back of your closet, right? Well I will be buying cashmere again, definitely this winter. What’s your favorite winter piece this year? (more…)

How to get up and get dressed #11

Summer seems to fade away turning into a distant memory while winter is approaching. Today I present you one of my favorite summer combinations, that well is quite classic. A white shirt, golden linen shorts, roman sandals, a color statement clutch and a not so small pearl necklace. If worn over-sized, it looks cool and relaxed all I need in summer.

Terrace Gardening

I admit I was wearing winter clothes in August, the whole package: boots, hat, wool pants, cashmere sweater and coat…depressing right? Well it were two weeks of freezing 15 and less degrees in the Netherlands (I wasn’t surprised that much) but now I am. Summer is back in September and I really regret not having any fruit trees in my hot garden, it gets up to 30˚C in the sun…and we have brick walls…so extra warm weather here. I am getting back to blogging after a month of holiday and I also will go back to the normal routine, non-gardening stuff and into the depths of life basically. For the moment the last pics of my garden which turned out pretty well I think. Another cleaning and it should be done for this year.

How to get up and get dressed: Summer Nights

August 18th, 2014

Summer nights are the best time of the day in places like Madrid. It’s cool enough to get out on the streets and compared to the north of Europe people really go out. It’s like comparing a desert to a jungle…

Madrid @ Night #11

madrid night city bikes

Madrid tries to turn into a biking city. With the city bikes to rent it has become easier to have a bike but the prices are quite high. They are running with an extra engine in the back to get up the hills easier, though. It’s still much cheaper to take the metro.
