Fancy hats & oysters

So this is where I wore my thirties inspired outfit to; the most extravagant lunch at the Rechtbank in Utrecht. Me and my husband met the beautiful Tante Patent and her hubby for a bite. We ended up staying there for hours, drinking (lots of) wine and eating sexy food! The garden where we were sitting was just the most divine location for an elaborate afternoon dinner like that.
I  love meeting up with Tante and her husband. They are people who still believe in class from the past. My heart always breaks when I realize that fashion, romance and style are slowly 'dying off' in this modern society. Most people just don't seem to value dressing up anymore. Let alone honouring traditions, like pulling out the chair for your lady.... And that's why meeting these lovely people is so much fun; they always arrive in style and they do still believe in tradition. The fact that they also appreciate good food, propper wine and enjoying life made it the perfect sunday!
The beautiful garden where we sat was in between these pretty buildings

Marnix enjoyed the most adorable '12-uurtje' I'd ever seen

Tante's hubby and the surroundings

What a beauty!

Now that's the way women should carry their sigarettes.... so classy (L)

That wine was delicious

And these oysters were as heavenly!

Hats a galore

Marnix made a cute little friend that day

    And I still think dressing up is fine. And a really pretty sight;)
