You might know the saying: “A smooth sea never made a skilful sailor”. Well, you can see that I am standing comfortably on a large boat in a more than calm harbour. Still, surrounded by so many boats and wearing this striped shirt, I felt very much like a sailor.

A few weeks back I spent a weekend in windy Holland. This midi skirt was a perfect choice for the occasion. It is absolutely wrinkle-free, so great for travelling and I like how playful the skirt looks when it is windy! It is definitely one of my more versatile skirts.
View of Munich from the Maximilianeum.
Today is the start of the ‘München Oktoberfest’, so I am sure that this view will be slightly different the coming few weeks. I took this photo last April, when we visited Munich. Living in Switzerland, Munich is kind of around the corner, so perfect for a short city trip.
For me shorts are something I almost only wear in my spare time. I prefer dresses and skirts for school (see: Vive les volants! ), since they are so much easier to style if you want to wear something comfortable and classy in your classroom. These shorts are definitely the exception to the rule.
Last April we visited Munich and to my surprise there was a beautiful English Garden in this Bavarian City. I just loved it. Imagine how thrilled I was when shortly after that trip I went to London. London is full of red busses and telephone boxes, like you can see in I spy with my little eye , but also full of green gardens and parks.
Today I’d like to take you to one of these; the white garden of Kensington Palace.
Voilà, another one of my favourite summer outfits. Why? Well, for many reasons really.
- I love the flowery pattern because I associate flowers with summer.
- I am a dress lover as you know. (see also: Vive les volants!)
- As a little girl I already liked pink and as a small woman I still do.
- I like a touch of Dutch now and then.
A few weeks back I published some tips for happy summer days in Tips for happy summer days . I have followed quite a few of them myself (including the digital detox as you may have noticed) and have enjoyed some very happy summer days indeed. Now I’m back in black!
I assume most of you have seen the film The Sound of Music at least once. Do you remember the scene in which Julie Andrews takes down the curtains to sew some clothes for the Von Trapp kids? This dress just reminds me of that scene, flowery as it is.
The summer season is a great time for dress lovers like me. Skirts and dresses are just so much better for creating a comfortable and classy style than wearing (bermuda) shorts, don’t you agree? That’s why I wear a lot of skirts and dresses in summer, making sure I can cycle in them of course.
Hi! Thanks for popping by.
My name is Lieske and I am a Dutch 40+ teacher of foreign languages in Switzerland. I am small and have got even smaller feet, so you can imagine how challenging it can be to find ‘fashion that fits’. To be honest with you, I want my clothes to have some more qualities than just ‘fitting well’. Let me share my personal 5 fashion rules with you.
