dress: COS - shoes: New Look - sunglasses: H&M - bag: Zara
This Saturday, on the day the Titanic hit the iceberg 100 years ago, my boyfriend and I met up with a bunch of my Dutch relatives in Terneuzen. I hadn't been there in years and years even though it's only a short drive from where we live, but I was glad to be back. It's only a small little town just across the Belgian-Dutch border, but you feel the Netherlands everywhere around you: especially the prominence of water is very Dutch. The land is flat but open, you can see for miles... I always feel humble and tiny under the big, open skies above me and staring into the the horizon across the water. This is actually a beach of the Schelde river, although it looks like the sea, but the adorable little lighthouse makes it totes legit!
My dress is a recent buy from the COS sale section (only 35€!). I had had my eye on it for months because of its interesting fit: somewhere between fashion forward and dowdy. Also, that collar! The loveliest shade of eggshell blue, giving some life to the black. I felt like a lady wearing this outfit, I almost look like some super religious throwback to the reformed Protestants I'm actually a descendant of, on my mom's side. I'm not a religious person, but religion can look très chique imo.
Sorry for the picture overload, but I loved them all so much so there!
