A stroll through the streets of Amsterdam suddenly made me realize how much I would like to take a walk in Paris. People say: “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence”. I think it can perfectly be attributed to me as well, because right now I wouldn’t mind going to Paris for a few days. I would go straight to a cafe in Montmarte, where I would sit at a table by a window with un cafè au lait or a cup of chocolat chaud and admire French women walking in the streets. There’s something about that chic and effortless je ne sais quoi French style that makes you think that French women are waking up to that perfect way of looking. With a nonchalant attitude taking their coffee, putting on a pair of jeans, along with a striped jacket, and a navy coat, and they are ready to conquer the world. This moment of imagination inspired me to put on a French style monochrome look, top it up with a classic beret, and capture this Parisian look in Amsterdam.

So here it is, the last post from so called "summer edition". I was lucky enough to catch the last warm days here in the Netherlands, and make a photo shoot on the beach. Since I have been living in this country for a while already, I can tell you that weather is the most discussed subject here. Mostly it either rains or the wind blows, or both. The rare days when you get a bit of sunshine and warmth are truly a blessing from god for the locals.
