After a month of traveling in Asia and another short trip to Austria, I am back in Amsterdam. After rummaging through piles of clothes I finally had time to sit down and go over all the unpublished Bali pictures. And, oh my… I did not realize that we made so, so many pictures that I hadn’t even shared with you. So, be prepared for a lot of Bali-spamming in the upcoming days! : )
The pictures that I’m sharing today put a big smile on my face, as they remind me of the magical morning we took these shots. As much as I like to drive around in my beloved Seminyak, Bali has so much more to offer. So we headed over to the Viceroy in Ubud and spend a few nights at this peaceful oasis of silence…
The friendly hotel manager Yann suggested to wake up at sunrise (6am!) to take some special, early morning pictures – and we were not disappointed! Since the air was clear we could see the dormant volcano Mount Agung in the distance and all the colors seemed brighter and more colorful, than at any other moment in the day.
I’m wearing the maroon Clemintine dress by SWF Boutique. What I especially love about the dress is that you can easily dress it up and down by combining it with either comfortable sandals, or high heels. For just that little extra touch I combined it with my Geoflora jewelry, a pair of Jimmy Choo Sunglasses and an oversized straw hat by Kim Soo.

Morning light is so beautiful! To be honest, I never tried waking up so early in the morning for a photoshoot, but a location like Bali would definitely worth it:) These photos are breathtaking! Thank you so much for sharing and have a great week ahead:)
