I had been looking forward to seeing the flower fields of Holland ever since I was a little girl. I thought it right to dress up for the occasion and wear a halter neck satin top with chunky choker beads. But we would have to walk around and most people would be in tourist long shorts, socks and sandals or even trainers. I was with my friends and they wasn’t going to be a photo shoot, just a visit of this beautiful place. So I opted against a skirt and combined the top instead with mustard brown jeans.
These rich colors would not seem out of place in the countryside, but would also not take the focus away from the flowers. The mustard lightened the blue, which otherwise, if combined with anything darker would have looked too harsh against all the surrounding color. I wore espadrilles, to give the outfit a summery feel, but also as these were the closest I had to the traditional Dutch Clogs. Indeed,espadrilles were traditional worn by french farmers and so this seemed a fitting choice and a good alternative to trainers for our outing into the countryside. What do you think?
