Who has ever invented the photographing-your-indoor-outfits-outside-in-the-blasted-cold-thingy? It was excruciatingly cold! One must suffer for beauty, well, in this case I had to suffer to showing it of. What I'm wearing is a navy and gold bomber jacket from Dutch brand Dante 6. I knocked this one on the head at a sample sale last summer. I love bomber jackets, they are the right hybrid between a formal jacket and a casual cardigan. This one can easily be worn to a party over a pair of more dressier trousers or a skirt. It's also very wearable to the office I think, paired with navy smart trousers and heels. But I also love wearing shiny glitsy items like these in a casual way. Every time I look down or see my arms it makes my smile! I have combined it here with a navy shirt with a lace insert. It is collarless. I don't think a bomber jacket works well with a collar underneath, I always wear it with a boatneck T-shirt or this shirt. I love combining different patterns but like to keep it within the same colourrange.
There was a lot of wind that afternoon so Madam Mannequin kept falling in the mud. Poor dummy, she was not amused (Readers who follow this blog in Bloglovin, please have a look at the original blog for more explanation on my assistant) Me and my youngest son had a great time though, he was happily bobbing along, messing about with sticks in the mud and shards of ice on the puddles. And I was enjoying watching him while trying to take photographs and not getting hypothermic...In the Behind the scenes section you can see more!
To warm up afterwards we had a lovely lunch of fried eggs, the best meal in the world!
