Simplicity


Even though I do post outfit posts sometimes, most of my blog is about makeup. What you guys don't know is that I'm quite a fashion / style addict (I'd rather say style, since I don't really follow fashion trends...). However, when temperatures rise, I tend to not be a makeup addict. And when temperatures rise even more, there's not much left of the fashion lover inside of me either. Fortunately, this only applies when temperatures reach above 30 degrees in the evening, which is rarely in Holland. Rarely, that does not mean never. And so happens that today was such a day. God bless all shorts (denim as well as any other (soft!) fabric) cropped tops, wide blouses and bikinis, cause I don't like to wear anything else. Jewellery tends to annoy me, or even burn me alive when it heats up. However, this evening I went out to have dinner with my mother. And luckily for my stomach, but sadly for my fashion vibe, we went to a kind of restaurant that doesn't really bless cropped tops, nor shorts (especially not those made of soft fabric...) nor bikinis...

On top of that I'm also spending the weekend at my mom's office. Yes, that is her office. She's a writer / doctor at the university and this is where she writes and checks all her work. Have you ever thought that work can not equal relaxation and a holiday vibe, than you were, just like me, wrong. Anyway, there I was, about to go to a fancy restaurant with only the necessary stuff brought with me to this cute little house. And there it was, the most (surprisingly) necessary thing: My old friend, the Little Black Dress...



So there are many varieties on the LBD, but I think this one is my favorite. This is due to its multifunctional (yes, you heard me) simplicity. I could literally walk out of the swimming pool, put this over my bikini and go to the Super Market to get some freezing cold juice without being overdressed. Why? Because it's just cute, A-lined, black dress. Yet, appearing at the restaurant wearing this thing won't make me look drastically underdressed, especially combined with decent flats and a coral lip (more about the lip color later this week). Why? Because, hello, it's a black dress and it's little. Not a head turner, still an eye catcher. Can't go wrong with that, never.

Lots Of Love,
Masja
