Green trousers with a white jacket

Irie Wash jacket, Marlene Birger trousers, Panara shoes (1 van 1)Green trousers??? Green??? I can hear you think. Yes dears, they are green. OK,  they are charcoal grey/green trousers. I seem to have a preference for these in-between-shades. Remember my (totally different) grey green baggy trousers? These trousers change their colour in different light. They are by Marlene Birger (I love that brand) and are pretty ideal. You don’t feel them so you can put them on for dinner. Plus, when you take them out of the washing machine, you only have to hang them up, no ironing. Continue Reading →


Street Style in Italy

Street Style Italy (5 van 6)Forgive me my lack of camera skills. I shot these pictures to make a Street Style in Italy post in only an hour. I could hardly communicate with the lovely ladies as not everybody spoke English as well as Daniela does. So explaining why I was photographing was also hard. Still, I like you to get an impression of what the women were wearing in Turin. I can tell you… there were a lot more to choose from than in The Netherlands. Continue Reading →


Shopping in Utrecht

Shopping in Utrecht (4 van 26)My dear friends and colleagues Sabine and Anke are perhaps worse than I am when it comes to shopping. We all adore a day of laughter, coffee, lunch and …shopping. They help me take photographs as well. Question…. where to go to this time? Paris was the first option, but we settled for shopping in Utrecht, which is a beautiful, old city in the middle of the country. The Netherlands has a lot of nice towns with little shops in the old centers. It will probably all disappear in the future and make way for shopping malls. Continue Reading →


Acne tunic with skinny jeans and silver boots

Acne tunic skinny jeans and golden boots (4 van 9)This post is about the combination of a few of my favourite things: my Acne tunic with skinny jeans and silver boots. The boots are actually silver / gold / bronze. And after the initial painful period of adjusting the right boot to my (half a size bigger) right foot, they are reasonably comfortable. As comfortable as pointy high heeled boots can get. Continue Reading →


Shopping at the Max Mara outlet

SAMSUNG CSCHaving arrived at Turin on Thursday afternoon, there was Daniela to meet me at the airport. We stuffed all my suitcases in the back of her small car and went for our first cappuccino. And dinner at Eataly. It was so nice to meet one another again. Friendship through blogging. Continue Reading →


Travel clothes

SAMSUNG CSCYep… I can hear you think….. “Travel clothes…. in high heels… Never”. And I so agree with you.

Last week I visited Dan (Daniela) of The Pretty Cute in Italy. Thanks to Transavia the price for a return flight is very reasonable. Dan and I have become really good friends. Which is one of the beautiful things that come from blogging. Last year you could read on my blog about our first encouter (and the second day and my return visit last year). Even though English is not our native language, we understand one another very well, even without words. Continue Reading →


Miscellaneous clothes

Purple jacket and black and white pencil skirt (2 van 4)I haven’t got any new photos ready (lack of time), so here are some forgotten ones from the past. Hence the strange title of this post: miscellaneous clothes. I couldn’t think of another title.

In these pictures I am still a brunette (sigh). First my purple velvet jacket and black & white pencil skirt. Both by Pauw (Dutch brand). This is a style I am not that keen on anymore. As a matter of fact, I never wear the skirt anymore. Don’t even know whether it still fits me. Any ideas as how to style the skirt in a more modern way… ?? Please share them with me in your comment. The jacket is another item I find very difficult to style. Continue Reading →


Boyfriend jeans with jacket

Boyfriend jeans with jackets (7 van 9)Friday was the start of my short holiday: 10 days. Hurray. My friend Marjolein was coming and we were to hit the town. Which means in my book: flat shoes. The day before I had been in tight skinny jeans and on high heels from very early morning till late in the evening. Even went out to dinner. Which meant a great need for comfort the next day. Starting with the shoes, I chose my white sneakers by Marco Polo (they are white, really they are. I have cleaned them now). And for more comfort, my boyfriend jeans with jacket. Continue Reading →
