Dream sunglasses alert!! Seriously, how freaking amazing are these Chloe Carlina sunglasses? I know they’ve been around for a little while now, but when I saw the resort campaign shot by Inez & Vinoodh I was totally sold. Out of this world cool if you’d ask me! Obviously they were sold out EVERYWHERE when I finally decided to get them. Well, almost everywhere, mostly online, cause I did manage to find them here in Amsterdam in the smallest eyewear shop. I didn’t expect to bump into them anymore, I practically gave up on ever finding my Carlina’s. But I did, over the moon, as you might read from my enthusiasm. The perfect accessory for my upcoming US trip, don’t you think? I still have to wait another few weeks before leaving, but I’m already thinking of what I should pack. 4 different cities with 4 different climates, it might be a challenge packing but I’m sure I can make it work! Anyway, the weather was so nice yesterday I just had to get out and leave my laptop behind for just a little bit. We took our bikes and left for the Jordaan, my fave area in the city and just a few minutes from where I live. One of the things I love about being my own boss: being able to do whatever, whenever. We did shoot this look though, so it might count as “work” anyway – or doesn’t it? If I have to believe the forecast, which I’d rather not, we’re looking at 2 weeks of rain ahead of us. So I’m quite happy I took advantage of those few sunny hours, because:
“A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.”
Yes, Steve Martin, you’re so right. It might sound simplistic, but I don’t see the use in grey or rainy days – because to me they are like nights, I’d rather spend them in bed. My boyfriend always tells me that it wouldn’t be fun to have great weather all day, every day, because we’d appreciate it less. And although I agree upon the latter, I do think it’s a lame excuse for someone who lives in Northern Europe, sorry baby! We can’t change anything about that, but we can complain about it. And so we do! Sorry guys!
