Blue sweater with blue and cream striped skirt (3 van 6)In my attempt to wear more skirts, I dived into my closet, pulled out this old skirt and styled it….. But I think it has had its last outing….. Gosh, it is so hard for me to style skirts in a modern way. In the old days I just wore a fitted jacket with this skirt. Perfect. The jacket got too tight (it was rather tight to start with) and I had to give it away. The skirt was hanging in the closet, doing absolutely nothing. Then I thought of this new blue sweater (seen before here). View Post

SAMSUNG CSCWe all know that our inside, our true being, is much more important than the outside. Still, I always try to look my best. Present the world my best (outside) version possible.

Looking at the photos again, in hindsight I don’t think this jacket is the best option for the skirts.  View Post

golden boots nr 1 (1 van 1)You may think that taking pictures for a blog is easy…. well it is not. For one, you need skills…. Too bad I am lacking them. My husband is still learning as well. Which means we sometimes get into a tiff, to use a real English understatement. Like when we took these photos with my new golden boots. Ron doesn’t like the boots. At all. Neither does he like the top. Still, he was gracious enough to photograph them for the blog. Only, his heart wasn’t in it. And I started giving instructions….. View Post
