Neutrals for summer

Zara dress, cardigan & belt – Teva Sandals – F21 ring
It took me a while to get back into blogging after the two week hiatus. I’m still not feeling very into it, maybe it’s the jetlag that totally kicked in a few days ago. Going back to work again so soon after my quite exhausting vacation was not a very good idea. I lay awake untill 4am and have to get up at 7 again. I thought that adapting to the CET would go a lot more smoothly. Bad thinking. 
Anyway, these photos were taken the day before we left for the USA. I was wearing one of my oldest and favorite dresses and choose to go all neutral with the rest of the outfit too. A subtle splash of colour is provided by the big orange rock on my finger. I love how it turned out, and I have no shame to repeat this outfit a few more times this summer. 
I feel like my blog schedule is one big mess at this moment! I’ll probably upload a post about DC later on this week and then close off the vacation series. I still have to edit the photos and after that I hope to get back into the swing of things here on The Ginger Diaries. I’ve missed making outfitposts and reading your blogs. Thanks for reading and supporting my guestbloggers. Hope you all have a great week ahead!

    Love this summer outfit! 🙂 The brown belt is so nice.

    I'm glad you enjoyed your trip – it will take a while to get back into the swing of things though, hope the jetlag goes away soon!

    Glad to hear you had an amazing time while you were away. I always find it a little difficult to get back to my blogging schedule, even if I have only been away from it for a day or two. Just don't let yourself stress over it, remember, this is meant to be fun! I love this dress on you, simple but absolutely lovely xo

    Fijne outfit! En jammer dat je zo snel al terug aan het werk moet, maar die jetlag zal wel overgaan, eventjes doorzetten en nagenieten van je heerlijke reis en dan komt het wel in orde!

    I love your little braid. I've been finding it hard all summer to be in blogging mode. Life can get so busy. But when I do make time, I always feel good about it.

    I think white dresses are just the most perfect thing for the summer. especially with brown leather accessories.

    Oooh, I love that red pop of the ring! I think neutral outfits are so fun when there's just one pop of color. I'm excited to hear about your trip!

    I love the neutral outfit – the ring is gorgeous and gives a nice pop of color!

    And, its OK to not really feel like blogging – sometimes you just dont feel inspired or up to it. Blogging should be fun, but sometimes can feel like a chore – you’ll get back into the swing of things once your life calms down a bit!
