Colorful stripes have made a comeback for spring/summer 2016. My take on this cheerful trend is this striped number I scored while exploring Kei Kecil island. Cool fashion items are extremely hard to find there, basically, because the islands are so remote. I felt like I won the lotto when I ran into this piece while exploring the local and only “mall” in the central city of Langur. I decided to wear it when we celebrated the Dutch king’s birthday in Bali a few weeks later.I know this post is really overdue because this was already a month and a half ago, but still I wanted to show you guys this outfit.
Kings day is a huge celebration in The Netherlands, so to be able to celebrate it here in Bali was great! On this particular day, all sorts of Dutch expats showed up, happily running around wearing Hollands national color orange. I went “multi-colored” basically because I couldn’t find anything suitable in the color orange or even peach and received quite a few nice compliments about my stripey outfit.We ate Dutch poffertjes and bitterballen, enjoyed great tunes by a local Dutch DJ and strolled through the shopping and food stands. Thanks to our good friend Ineke who had organized the whole event we had a brilliant time.
