For the ones that have been following my blog for some time it must be clear that I have a weak spot for Spain. For the past few years, I have made it a habit of visiting different places in Spain at least once a year.
And so last weekend I got on the plane again, only to visit a – for me – undiscovered part of Spain, namely the beautiful province Asturias. Although Asturias is absolutely stunning, with beautiful secluded beaches, picturesque little towns, delicious food and wine and sunny weather, there was a far better reason for me to visit.
I think you will be seeing more of Asturias on my blog in the near future.
P.S. Next time I’ll try to capture the beauty of Asturias with my dslr camera instead of my crappy iphone.
P.P.S. Carlos, muchos gracias por todo! x

I love me some monochrome dressing every now and then! Have an excellent weekend everyone! :)
Stan Smiths, yeah! No introduction required! Iconic and actually just perfect! :)
Want a pair? You can get them here!

If someone as talented as Simona Graszl asks you to do a photo shoot together you would have to be an idiot to say no! Simona and I met under unlikely circumstances, but I’m so happy we did. This girl knows fashion photography! I think she is super talented and has a great eye for the unexpected angle. I love how great she is at working with natural lighting and capturing the atmosphere and beauty of the environment. The result is pictures that look like they came straight out of a fashion magazine.
Simona was born in Budapest, but lived in different parts of Europe most of her life. Although she did her studies in Budapest as a graphic designer, she found her true passion in photography when she travelled to Africa. That trip really inspired her as a photographer to do more in photography and to show the beauty in people.
Simona, based in The Netherlands, told me that she would be excited to do more collaborations with others. So if you’re interested, who knows, maybe Simona will do a photo shoot with you. You can find more about her as well as her contact details here.
I know I’m really looking forward to work with her again. We shot several outfits, so you will see more pictures shortly. Many thanks Simona, you’re the best! :)

Not my usual pick, but I think it’s a nice change from my regular jeans and t-shirt. :) I wanted this dress ever since Anine Bing released it. If I remember correctly, a year ago already and finally decided to get it about a month ago. Yes, I can be indecisive like that. I could have worn them with sandals or heels, but since I’m really lazy lately and reach for comfortable footwear, I chose these espadrilles. Been leaning towards espadrilles a lot lately as you may have noticed.

Yes, we have a Whit Monday here in Holland, which means an extended weekend. And it really felt like a little holiday with the sunny weather we had today and actually for the entire weekend! A perfect weekend spent with old and new friends and filled with lots of sun! I hope you had a great time as well! :)
