While it’s grey outside, pouring with rain and my little heater is on beneath my desk, I’m looking back at June, the month in which summer officially started. While I patiently wait for this to actually happen (so I can finally do some outside photoshoots as I have some lovely new outfits to show you), I’m looking back at this month full of tall things!
The month kicked off with a great collaboration with one of my favorite tall fashion brands and one of my favorite tall bloggers: MARGE Clothing and Beth of TallFashionAdventures! These kind of collabs are just the best as it’s such a joy to work with like-minded people! While the #talltravelstyle contest is over, feel free to still use the hashtag as both Beth and I love it for inspiration!
While this #TallTravelStyle contest kicked off, I was, coincidentally, traveling. I had to be in Dublin for work and I added a few days to meet up with a friend who I hadn’t seen in ages, and it was great! Turns out friendships you make while traveling do last and some unplugging occasionally isn’t all that bad! 🙂
Then 21 June came; the day summer kicked off and the longest day of the year! A few tall entrepreneurs in NL took the opportunity to make this day a national day for tall people and launched this initiative at the soon to be opened museum ‘Ripley’s Believe it Or Not’ in Amsterdam. I didn’t want to miss this! I met up with a friend afterwards to spend an afternoon in Amsterdam together. Not a bad Tuesday at all!
This longest day was celebrated even more on the 26th of June during a first time event; a day full of all things tall, including various tall fashion brands, a fashion show, suppliers of tall beds, bikes and chairs. Sallee of Tallguides joined me in NL on this day, and I will write more about this soon!
I was also happy to share a bit more of the story of MARGE Clothing in an interview with inspiring tall entrepreneur Kaersten Cooper. I was so curious how this year in fashion had been for her, and as a huge fan of her brand, I was excited to show you another outfit.
So, July… As it stands now, this is going to be a month where I will not be going abroad… That’s weird and lovely at the same time: no packing, no hours sitting in airports or adjusting to time-zones, but time to focus on work, blogging and hopefully to enjoy some Dutch sunshine!
