BASICALLY ME

The Line New York Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar

Recently a Dutch magazine requested an interview, and – of course – I said “YES”, because I love to connect with my home-country when it comes to my work, my life abroad, and motherhood. Yet, when the first draft got to me, I was so sad about the result. It was more a pieces about stereotypical things about women and girls who blog, than what I actually talked about on the phone. I sensed a bittersweet tone of voice, almost as if it was fed by a little bit of jealousy. Now I know for sure that this person never meant for this to happen, but sometimes when we write, especially when you write as a freelancer, and you feel the pressure of creating your own voice, you lose the actual point, and objectivity fades…

50 SHADES OF GREEN

Cluse watches Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar

No, I’m not going to talk about that movie, nor has this post anything to do with things like “green with envy” or Stella’s favorite cartoon hero Poison Ivy – I know, it’s crazy – but today it’s all about the celebration of color, and the most beautiful one of all: green…Yet, the real important thing in this look is actually the tiniest…

LET ME BRIGHTEN UP YOUR DAY!

There’s nothing more depressing than those – what seems to me – endless gloomy winter days. Not really depressing in the sense of it’s real meaning, but you know… those gray skies all day, every day, just do no justice to our Resort-imaginations that are running wild now all of it has dropped online and in-stores. Drooling over every single Resort lookbook, I’m trying to figure out a way of “doing it” wearing it, without loosing my mind – quite literally – in winter’s icy temperatures. I can’t recall winter being so harsh on me last season, but that might be a case of ignorance. Bliss. Yet, I totally have to figure out again how to do this Resort-thing.

CREATING THE PERFECT MOMENT

Meanwhile back home… My initial plan was shoot these two looks while we were skiing in Canada. When that didn’t work out due to logistics, I figured I could shoot it in a park after it snowed to create the perfect urban ski-editorial. But it didn’t snow… not one single day. Not over the Holidays, not in the New Year…I saw my whole plan melt away like snow on a sunny day.

MAKEUP-LESS THURSDAY

rag & bone Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar

Two things I love during cold winter days are 1. the feel of my bare face in the sun, while staying warm with 2. the ultimate beanie. Unfortunately I don’t feel confident enough to go makeup less every day of the week, especially not when I’ve had a night without much sleep – read: two toddlers in-between Thomas and me, who decide it’s morning around 3AM. But luckily we have sunglasses, and I wear those when not wearing any make-up on. Or, in today’s case, I make sure my photographer captures me with just the right amount of light on my face…
