Generation Clash

H&M Dress & cardigan || Zara belt || Teva sandals
I didn’t really do much this weekend. I worked on Saturday and earned just enough money to buy those boots from my last post! They are from Steve Madden, by the way (the Troopa boots). On sunday we went out to dinner with K’s family. His grandfather heard something about a machine called iPad, and he wanted to know what it was for. Than his grandmother got the iPad confused with the iPod. It was quiet hilarious as you can imagine! We decided not to tell them there also are things called iPhone, iTunes, iMac and iWhatnot. Where do we actually need all these things for? His grandparents reminded us that they came from a time where cars were rare and they still had to handwrite letters to their loved ones, where typewriters weren’t collactables and where computers were still scary.

When I saw the pricetag from one of those iPads I imagined what other things I could do with that money. Buy 25 dresses, a week off to Paris or London, a year in college, … . What would you do with โ‚ฌ500?

Loves, 

Nikki
PS: How do you like my new header? Danielle made it for me ^^ she’s so sweet!

    I think your outfit is super cute! Definitely not the worst outfit pics ever ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sometimes I wish I lived in a time where iPads and other time-sucking technology didnt exist. When I get overwhelmed I try to turn it all off for a few.

    Hoezo, 'worsty outfit pictures ever'??? Toch leuke foto's! En die boots van Steve Madden zijn mooi ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mijn lief heeft juist een iPad gekocht, haha. Zelf zou ik er het geld niet aan geven (liever reizen ofzo) maar hij doet met zijn geld wat hij wil hรฉ ๐Ÿ™‚ Wel een cool ding, maar een beetje duur..

    Dat kleedje is echt schattig, heb het ook gepast maar dan toch nie gekocht en nu heb ik er spijt van ๐Ÿ™‚

    They're not the worst pictures at all! I love the swirling and the colours! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Ohhh, and the new header is beautiful!

    500 Euros… I'd start getting a webshop together. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. 15 August 2011 / 20:32

    Hahaha so true!
    It's weird to think that there was a time when people could actually survive without all this crazy technology that we have today. ..

    side note: I absolutely love your hair!

  8. 15 August 2011 / 21:35

    I love your dress! And totally jealous you bought those boots from your last post….I want them so so bad! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I like how you keep on changing headers and still remain "you" ,-)
    Oh and my flatmates grandma bought an ipad and finds it "so easy to navigate" ^^

  11. 15 August 2011 / 23:18

    love the new header! the letters are gorgeous! the photo were you are spinning looks amazing, the creme color looks extremely well on you! oh 500โ‚ฌ, i could think of several things!

  16. 16 August 2011 / 08:28

    Leuk outfit! Staat mooi bij je haarkleur!

  17. 16 August 2011 / 13:31

    I think these pictures are quite pretty actually. They make your gorgeous red hair stand out, and I love that H&M dress so much!

  18. 16 August 2011 / 14:32

    You outfit pictures are beautiful, I especially love the one of you twirling. It's so funny to think about how far technology has come in the least 30 years. I can only imagine the crazy devices my grandchildren will have to teach me about. As far as spending 500โ‚ฌ I would take a wonderful little seaside vacation. Can't wait to see how you style those Steve Madden's!

  19. 16 August 2011 / 15:28

    Its so funny how only 40 years ago these things were not even around! I sometimes wish I had come from a time where technology hadn't taken over yet, where life was a bit more simple that way. But I love your new header! You've always got new layouts happening! It makes me jealous sometimes how fast you can breeze through this html stuff. I am so slow at understanding it still. eeep

  20. 17 August 2011 / 00:32

    Hahahah yes, gotta hang out with the grandparents to give you a bit more perspective on life ๐Ÿ˜€

    I actually used that money to purchase an iPad and as a blogger, I swear one of the best investments I ever made!

    Thanks so much for visiting my blog sweets, hope to see you back again soon!

    Peace. Love. LOL!

    I love the story about your grandparents… Mine are like that, too. My grandma has never even touched a computer…. But some of my friends have grandmas who email and all that! Crazy how some people adapt to new technology and some choose not to!

  23. 17 August 2011 / 11:35

  37. 19 August 2011 / 17:43

    Hele leuke outfit!
    Ben ook nog steeds aangedaan door de hele situatie, ik kon mijn beste vriend ook pas deze ochtend bereiken maar gelukkig had ik al eerder van iemand anders gehoord dat hij ok was. En dan te denken dat ik gisteren overdag nog aan het vloeken was op dat ene puntje dat ik te weinig had, anders had ik daar ook gezeten…

  38. 19 August 2011 / 18:23

    So beautiful Nikki! I love the colors and those sandals looks super comfy! xo

  39. 19 August 2011 / 20:58
