We all have a striped skirt…..havn’t we?

Why do we love a striped skirt so much as soon as the temperature starts to rise? And not only skirts, sweaters, tee’s and shoes too! I don’t need to tell you where the striped look came from, but for those who want to read about it I have a link here. I think striped skirts and sweaters generate a feeling of holidays somehow. Water, sailing, sun, France. So I thought I would reinforce that feeling by wearing ice cream! Haha, not literally of course. How much fun is this sweater!

With such beautiful weather like today it’s so nice to go with bare leggs. Still a bit fresh but to not wear tights anymore is such a liberty! I have this striped skirt for a long time, and I also worn it a lot. I wore it like this here all the time. I think I will be wearing it again a lot because it is so easy to wear and….I bought a new striped tee that would be great on this skirt. The striped tee I bought for this skirt! I asked you what you would wear on this skirt exept for something plane black. Most of you said: stripes! Okay, then I will wear stripes! But that’s for another moment. I am wearing my turquoise necklace as a bracelet. I always buy these whenever I am in Brighton, on the boulevard. Everytime another color. Just a nice remember of my beloved Brittain. I think I will be buying a red or a pink one soon! Yeah! A dark blue ring and to add a pop of color, a pink belt. For some reason I only wear my brown fringed sandals or these espadrilles with this striped skirt.

And we  start the week with ,,my week”.

Hello all. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. As most bloggers know, blogging take’s up a lot of time. I’ve never worked with computers, so when I started blogging I had to learn everything myself. And now with a self hosted site you have so many more options, and everything is equally interesting, but it also means even more to learn and try( and like yesterday when something fails again, Gerben spoils me with something sweet). That cost a lot of time and energy, and I actually don’t have that energy. So  the past few weeks I’ve been very busy with the blog( which I enjoy) and I can feel that now.I am tired! It is a good thing then, that most of the things I wanted with my blog are done now and soon we will go on a vacation! I really look forward to it.

And what have I done more in my week:

Because I was so busy, I felt on Thursday really sick so I had to cancel a meeting. Which I don’t like to do, but one has to listen to their body huh! I could not resist to show these pictures of Castor. He is crazy about drinking water from the bathroom sink. And he climbs against Gerben’s leg. It’s an old pants!

Tomorrow someone comes over to buy my last skirts and then I’ve sold everything I wanted to sell. And a small glimpse into my interior. All white!

I do not like to work in the garden, I also can now no longer, but I may well enjoy it immensely. Monday the gardener has modified the front garden and removed a huge conifer that obstructed the view of the garden. The garden suddenly looks twice as big, so beautiful. And all the birds that you hear, they are so busy right now building nests. I love it!
