Orange Friday*

I have a 4 day date coming up with 3 great gals from London this weekend. They're hopping across the channel to celebrate Queen's Day with me and my friends in Amsterdam - the biggest street party in the world which celebrates the Queen Mother's birthday. I can't quite stress enough how much the Dutch love orange; it's the national colour because the royal house was known as the House of Orange (named after a region in France) and they're just crazy about it. This outfit is a toned down version of what we'll be wearing come Monday; I'm trying to convince the girls that we will blend in amongst the sea of tangerines by wearing such a ridiculous colour combo! Our actual outfits will include false lashes, hats and bright, crazy sunglasses.

Have a great weekend!
