My love affair with both white and red continues.

When I don’t know what to wear, it is one of my go-to combinations.

Remember this top? It’s business in the front, party in the back!

This striped blouse is a new edition in the red family of my closet. I love the versatility of it.

Tuck it in for a nice business kind of look and leave it out for a casual look to wear with white sneakers. Of course it would have been nice if the collar was a bit neater for these photographs!


As usual I’m keeping things simple (and cool) and play with my accessories, and this time also nails, to make the whole outfit more interesting. My belt is always a good option as well as my watch.
