Beach life

Life on the beach... I love it! The sound of the splashing waves, the squawking seagulls looking for food, the whistling of the boats and ships passing by... 

The amazing views of the sunset, surfers riding the waves, kitesurfers flying in the sky.... oh and the smell of fish, BBQs, the scent of coconut sunscreen...

And last but not least, the taste of summer: salads, grilled meat, fish and veggies, Sol beer, sangria, mojito, rosé wine and why not... Champagne!

Photos taken at Sol Beach, Beachclub Doen and Mood Beach, in Scheveningen, The Netherlands.

Yellow fever


Sometimes I can get really inspired by a "new" colour... in this case yellow. It looks so lush, so rich, so warm... I almost want it to become Fall, so I can finally put this gorgeous sweater on!

Camouflage is back!

Camouflage prints are back! For men, for women, in casualwear, in classical menswear, in shoes... camouflage is everywhere. Of course the fashion scene is always one step ahead of the crowd... so be prepared for next summer... and buy a camouflage accessory or -for the more daring ones among you- a camouflage print jacket as soon as you can!
