I never wear black and white together. And I certainly didn’t own a black and white dress.(and then I remembered this dress, haha) But one is never to old to learn right? But first what’s been on my mind.
It has been incredibly hot in the Netherlands. A lot of heat records were broken with temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius. While we actually had quite a bad spring and the beginning of the summer wasn’t much better either. Little sun, lots of clouds but no rain. While of course we had a super summer last year. But this season it is also very dry again, just like last year. You see dead trees and shrubs everywhere. The plants who just made it last year, now collapse under the drought.
Animals in the gardens that are struggling, think of hedgehogs, mice, birds. We have already found the necessary dead mice, moles and birds this year. If there finally is a rain shower, it is not enough to restore nature. The soil is just to dry. Fortunately, we have a very animal-friendly garden, with everywhere containers of water and places where animals can shelter or get food. But nature is weird. I’m curious what kind a winter we will get. I’m not going to make it harder than it is and keep on talking about the climate, others can do that much better. I’m going to talk about my outfit now.
My (not) first black and white dress
With that heat I prefer to wear a dress. One that fits nicely around your body and certainly doesn’t pinch anywhere. I never wear, oh no, never say never, almost never wear black and white together. I’ve said it before, I feel a bit like a waitress when I do. But I couldn’t resist this one, you understand that right? A super simple dress with v neck and elegance.
Black and white striped dress
You can actually combine all colors with a black and white striped dress. So it was actually hardest to decide which color I wanted to wear on this dress. Years and years ago I also wore a lot of cobalt blue, in addition to black of course. Together with black and white I think that is a wonderful combination. But I don’t have any cobalt blue. Oops, I feel a shopping afternoon coming up!
But I felt like wearing green! So I picked my green denim jacket and the green espadrilles. Added green earrings, these I have for years but they are the perfect shade of green. I can see the difference in my face tint when I wear these or another shade of green, these are perfect. And a green statement ring.
Would really appreciate it if you would share my outfit on Pinterest! Just hoover over the photo!
My favorite of last week is: Katie of Hello Katie Girl
If someone can play with color it’s this woman!
