INSTAGRAM // Can't we do a bit more of the wrong thing, before we do the right thing?

1. Autumn leaves are everywhere, I love the colours so much 2. Another view from Athens 3. Went to Arnhem for a little shopping last friday, Thinks I Like Things I Love has such a beautiful shop 4. Got a new mirror for my room! 5. Ordered some prints a few days ago from Printic 6. Outfit, I'm living in this jumper since I bought it, I hope there will be an outfit post with this one soon! 7. Another (outfit)photo from Athens, you can read all about these here 8. Some room details!
Like I wrote in my last post, I'm so busy with all other things than blogging, and because of that there will be a little less posts online, I'm hoping for about 2 a week. But hey, the Christmas hollidays are almost here! Three weeks from now we/I'll have a break from the weekly routine, which is really hard to get out of now. But so, there are some lovely things upcoming, we just need to hang on a little time. 
Do you also struggle with a weekly routine? Any tips for how to get out of that? Maybe I'll go work out some tips myself. What do you think about these photos?

OUTFIT/PHOTOGRAPHY // Endless stairs (Old Olympic Stadium)

New Look top // Cheap Monday skinnies // Vintage sunnies // Converse all stars
Lately I have so much inspiration for my blog, but such a lack of time to work on that. School plus work are taking a lot of time. Which isn't a bad thing, but well it is a little for my blog. Because of this my blog is still hanging in Athens, while I'm already busy with lots of other things. Like these outfit photos, they were still there on my computer, but only now I have time to post them and that makes my blog late, or something. 
But right now this post is online, which means the last post of Athens, which means room for new things/outfits/blogposts! So that is maybe what I need to do: start doing. Get out there and take pictures, shoot a new outfit, and what I want most: find/photograph a new Lovely Locations. So that are some plans for the coming days/weeks. I hope to fulfill them and find the time! 
And I can't only write about other things than these photographs. These are my favourites from the ones I took in Athens. The last day we would fly back in the afternoon and our plans were to see the temple of Zeus and shop a little, not knowing that we'd finish that very very fast. We decided to walk to the old Olympic stadium and to get in there. Best decision ever if you'd ask me. Those seats/stairs were amazingly high, they looked almost endless if you stood down. Plus that those stairs are a perfect place to shoot some photographs, the stairs give these such a lovely depth. I love the ones where I'm sitting most, and then mostly the last one in black and white. Ohh this was such a lovely place. Oh and what I'm wearing is a really simple outfit, a nice light striped top, my favourite skinnies and for a change white all stars, and that is, I think, all about that. 
What do you think of these photographs? And do you recognice my 'little problem' with blogging? I hope to come with something brand new soon!

TRAVEL // Athens, Greece (part 2)

So.. here is part two of my trip to Athens. It already feels sooo long ago, The second semester of school has started again and with that the weekly structure is back..  not sure whether I like the structure; doing the same thing every day/week. But this post about my last travel helps breaking the structure, a little then at least, in it's own way. It's like a dream back in time.
These are the last photographs (sorted out) of our three days in Greece plus some of the first day I forgot about for the last post. Pff, I don't know that well what else to say about the city, or about these photographs.. I just like to make them match and put them together, to make this post a pretty diary to remember the trip to Athens, and to love it for now. 
Well a little bit (in short) about these photographs. 1. All the streets were so lovely, the architecture in other countries always seems so much prettier 2. First dinner with great pita and wine + the first oh so lovely little wallet I bought that print is the best 3. The Temple of Olympian Zeus, which was immensely big and high 4. Pretty views and more of those columns 5. More lovely architecture, Athens has the most amazing balcony's 6. The last day we went to the Olympic Stadium, another immensly big architecture. Those endlessly high marble stairs were such a beautiful thing to see, it was such a good place to make some photographs! These two are only a few of the ones taken there. Soon there will be another (outfit) post of when in the Olympic Stadium. I'm so happy we went to see this place. 
How about these photos from Athens? Have you traveled recently?

OUTFIT // Athens, Greece

Zara blouse // Cheap Monday jeans // Dr. Martens shoes // Tiltil shopper // Vintage sunnies
A new outfit, one from Athens, Greece, from the very first day. I brought a lot of skirts with me, but for exploaring the city, my jeans were the most comfortable so that's what I wore most often. This first day there I wore one of my favourite summer blouses (from Zara). The print on it is so lovely,  I love the boho, foreign, vintage, flower (however you want to call it) print on it. And it was a perfect item for when it is a little warmer, the size and fabric is so light and soft that the wind loves playing with it. Then there under my favourite pair of shoes and a shopper for my thingies. So quit a simple outfit, but therefore the blouse points out well. What do you think of this outfit?

TRAVEL // Athens, Greece, amazing views, lovely architecture and the acropolis (part 1)

Finally here it is, my first blog post about Athens (yay for a new TRAVEL post!). There were so many photos made and sorting them out was quit a big job. But here is the first selection. Writing this post makes me dreaming about when we were still there. As you may or may not know: Paul gave me a suprise city trip that led us to the capital city of Greece. I really had no clue that this was going to be our stay for the coming three days, or actually every thought about Athens. I know the city, mostly, from Sisi, part 3. Anyone who shares my love for the old Sisi pictures?
But I'm glad I got to know Athens more. These photographs are from our first day there and that explains the many photos of the acropolis. After a climb of 156 meters we reached the acropolis, which means in Greek: the highest point of the city. The location is very steep and that makes the most amazing view, that is what catches your eye first when you reach the top. The acropolis is actually a big rock where the old Greeks build their amazing architecture on, and because of that rock you can walk it round and see the view over the entire city everywhere. Just like you can see the acropolis from on the city (almost) everywhere. Then after we realised the pretty view we walked further to the Parthenon and the other Greek buildings. Those were all so impressive, they are still so well maintained, you can easily dream a little about how life was way back then. 
The rest of the day we wandered around the city, explored the streets, had some really good pita's and enjoyed the sun and just had a good time. I really love this first selection, the colours of Athens are so lovely. There will definitely be an Athens part 2, and maybe a part 3, oh and some outfit photos from there, so stay tuned for those. 
For now: What do you think of these new travel photographs? Have you every been to Athens?
