Kingsday Outfits

I had promised Kingsday outfits for your amusement. Just because: who’s not afraid of the color orange? Moreover, I take this sort of national festivities seriously. I mean, if we are all to engage in the collective Orange-Nassau delirium, better do it properly. So, what do I do? I grab all orange items I have in my possession, and I call a photographer-friend. I only tell her about coffee-plans, and once bellies are full, I suggest we pass by my place. Before she knows, she’s following me with the camera while I gypsy-dance.

THE CAREFUL APPROACH

Isn’t orange the most difficult color ever invented? But hey, just throw anything orange on anything black, and you’re good to go. Almost as it had been a casualty. Warning: don’t try combining the citrusy tone with anything other than pitch-dark (unless you’re a professional).

THE TOTAL LOOK APPROACH:

First of all, you have to wear stuff in your head.

Next, go for it all. Going full-on might mean you ending up looking like this. And if you do, by all means: DANCE.

THE JUST-PUT-A-CROWN-ON-IT APPROACH

Flowers are good but, how often do you get to crown those beautiful thoughts of yours? By all means, go for the crown.

End of story.

    This was the first time in nine years that I haven’t celebrated Queen’s/King’s Day. 😦 I miss the vrijmarkt and music and happiness. Though I do see a lot of orange on the walls and roofs here in Bologna! And I did put an orange collar on my Dutch dog.
