Yay, today is my birthday! The past year has just flown by, it’s crazy. Instead of overloading you guys with tons of photos in an over the top birthday outfit, I am re-posting an oldie but goodie shot about a year ago. The reason for this, is that I came down with a little bit of a cold. Think a nasty cough with the most annoying sniffles, so I am taking things a little slow, even on my birthday. Today it’s all about staying in with hot tea and chocolate birthday cake. Yum! The great thing is: I have made it one more year on this planet, meaning I am still alive and kicking.
This post holds a special place in my heart, because it is the first photo shoot me and my boy Emiel did together. It was extremely cold and we were both freezing our buts off. Shooting on speed mode was a necessity that day. I always feel extremely shy when posing for someone new, but Emiel kept making me laugh to take the tension off. Over the past year we have been shooting so much together, exploring all kinds of new ways to bring my outfits to life. This shoot really marks the beginning of our wonderful journey together. The fact that this outfit still looks fresh is because over-the-knee boots are still hot and trending and the combination of soft pink and lavender/blue reminds me of a muted version of the Pantone colors of the year.
I love wearing pastel colors in winter and pairing it with black and brown items shows it can still look absolutely winter appropriate. Over-the-knee boots remain a favorite of mine, mainly because they look edgy and feminine, plus they keep your legs warm during these cold days. I’m off eating some birthday cake with my family everyone! Talk to you guys later.
I was wearing:
Shirt: I love Mode Amsterdam
Over-the-knee boots: Unisa (sold out) but I love this pair too here
Bag: Gucci here
Gloves: Haastje Repje Amsterdam but I love this pair too here
