New green culottes and fabulous blue shoes

These are my third culottes. Even though I’ve given my first away real soon afther buying. I could not get used to these. So probably it was just the fit because when I bought another one I really did not regret it. This one I wore a lot! And when I attended a fashion show, a couple of weeks back, I bought this green culotte. A really beautiful color and the fabric is so soft and a bit silky. I am sure I’ll wear this one very often too. You can find some great styling tips for your culottes here. I also bought a few weeks back these gorgeous blue shoes! Shoes that I immediately fell in love with( yeah I know that happens to me often!)

Why am I wearing a sleeveless top?

At the fashionshow I also bought this top to go with the green culottes. I had previously said that I would not wear any sleeveless tops anymore  because I have very ugly arms, I forgot about this when I bought the top. I really thought this was very strange, that I have these ugly, old looking arms, because I work out a lot. I asked my physical therapist, with whom I also work out with, and asked him for other exercises for my arms. He said my arms were muscular but that the skin was very dry.

I always use this bodymilk for under the shower. In the morning I always use a cheap body lotion and when I go to sleep I use cool cream on my arms and legs. Well, Gerben always says that the shower cot is full with a grease emulsion of the bodylotion, so I probably rinse most of it away. The morning lotion is, like I said, cheap so probably not that effective. And the cool cream is very fat but was not meant for my dry skin. (a few years ago, I suddenly got red spots on my feet and legs. My GP sent me straight to the dermatologist, whose assistent was a total bitch, she was poised because she could not reach me by telephone. We then had just moved out of our house and our telephone was disconnected, however I had that morning mailed my mobile number to the dermatologist. I pointed that to her and then she saw my number on the screen. Now she was even more pissed! The dermatologist looked at my legs and feet and without touching them, he said: you have a pulmonary disease right? Then it must come from that. What? I responded that I would like him to look further then my lung disease. He then started searching on the net, I told him that I already had done that. And then he said: well, I have to look for it in my books at home. Yeah duh! What good will that do for me? I told him that I did not get the impresion that he would help me with this and walked away. What an asshole was that!) Where was I…So I went to the drugstore and bought a few tubes of better bodylotions and it seems to be working. So I hope to have better looking arms for the the rest of the summer then you see here. But they are muscular! Lol.

    I’m really into culottes now, have got a cute denim pair, black faithful and a couple of jumpsuits – they’re such a great look and easy wear option.

      Oh that is so very kind of you Tina! But the cool cream does his work, I think. Well at least the red dots are gone, but when I stop using the cream it comes back!
