Do you ever see a piece of clothing or accessory so ugly and impractical, that your first thought is “wow, I must own it”? Like Topshops clear plastic jeans or the disco ball body suit by GUCCI. This was more or less what went through my mind, when I stumbled upon those heels with a pink fur insole (so-called “ugly-pretty shoe) . Because who needs a fur insole in a sandal? In winter boots, it makes sense. But open toe sandals? Not so much.
*I can confirm that the bottom of my feet went rather sweaty after a while in these.
The shoes have been patiently waiting for me to wear them, on an shelf accompanied by other decorative items. My miniature sculpture of a nude female torso, a vintage Olympus OM-3 and a silver piggybank in the shape of bulldog. You know, the usual.
They often became the object obtaining most attention from guests, like Marie who said something along the lines of “What, those shoes are so ugly! Can I try them on?”

Back to normal life
Returned after a 5 day getaway to Bornholm – a small Danish island in the Baltic sea. My grandfather build this cute, tiny (and primitive) summer house near the coast, surrounded my corn fields and woods. Yes, it’s as idyllic as it sounds.
We have no TV, barely any phone connection, and a wood burning stove for heat. There’s no bath in the house, so you gotta jump in the ocean to freshen up.
I think it’s rather healthy to be forced back to basics. And most importantly, going (partly) offline. I’m on my phone constantly, and it worries me how many times I check it in a day. So a few days off the grid, just spending time with my family and s/o has been amazing. But daily life calls, and we’re back in the office.
