Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This is my first time ever celebrating this day – as we don’t do Thanksgiving in The Netherlands – and since we don’t have any family here in Los Angeles, we will probably celebrate with a surf session on the beach.
Even though I can not seem to figure out another way to describe Thanksgiving than Christmas without presents, here we go:
Thank you, for reading afterDRK.com and for following me while I am in Los Angeles (and my bare armed outfits are probably not even inspiring for you to see, since most of you are bundling up for winter).
Ahhh, the Arts District! A new neighborhood, a new (sub) chapter of my adventures here in Los Angeles. As much as I liked Culver City – I liked it a LOT – I thought it would be fun to spend some time in one of my already favorite areas in this city as well. Just so that I will be able to say ‘I love LA’ without it being based on one district.
On the outfit, I wore this simple – some call it grandma, my boyfriend almost thought I was planning on selling bibles door by door (I just like it) – ensemble to move all our stuff from Culver City to our new temporary place and walk a few blocks to grab an Organic Green Tea Boba (my new favorite, is that bad? I heard the literal translation for ‘Boba’ in Chinese is breasts, hmmm…) at Urth Caffe.
This skirt might not be something that had my name written all over it when I found it, but it has really been my go-to wardrobe staple on days that I just don’t feel like wearing the same old jeans-t-shirt-jacket combination.
Also, I have been having the urge to actually use the buttons on my blazers lately and it might have something to do with that limited amount of clothes I was talking about earlier. Might be fun to actually do a post about what exact items made it to the 23kg suitcase, as one of you mastermind readers suggested. Yes or no?
Au revoirParis! After more than a month of almost non-stop traveling I am back home in Amsterdam for some days. Days that I am going to fully dedicate on a fashion detox. My back and shoulders are a little sore from all the camera lifting and suitcase dragging, so I went for a deep tissue/RSI-combat massage first this morning.
Other than that, I am going to drink liters and liters of green tea (no more croissant and meringue for me!) and go running like a mad woman to get rid of the croissants, pains au chocolat and meringues sticking to my behind.
