One freezing Sunday, husband Ron offered to take outfit photos of this cream A-line skirt. He had installed a new app which predicted pretty accurately when it would rain and when the rain would stop. There was a rain-free window between 11.30 and 12.10…..We hurried to the little courtyard with almshouses which he had selected as background. (See more about almshouses in Haarlem.) Rain was a worrying thing but there was also the temperature to deal with. It was only 1 or 2 degrees Celcius (34 Fahrenheit). At least there was no wind in the courtyard.
Below: these are the almshouses, overlooking a communal garden. See that person with the umbrella? That is me just before we were leaving. Ron’s app is indeed very accurate: 12.10 sharp it started to rain.Below: cold or not, photos had to be taken without a coat.Below: oh dear, oh dear… Below: not really very elegant…I have featured this “eye shirt” once before on the blog. It is the same design as the brooch you saw two posts ago.
Below: ready!! Quick, quick… take the pictures.Below: I will show you pictures from all sides. I suffered for it, now you suffer too.Below: the seams are not exactly on the sides, but a bit more to the back. No idea what that is for, but it is probably for a clever reason.Below: one last shot. I knotted the shirt to give the outfit a more casual look (I got inspired by Annette (Lady of Style) in this post. Her outfit reminded me of “elegant combined with casual gives a nice balance”. And Annette also showed the knotted shirt a couple of times. Below: Ron caught a rainbow on our way out. See how dark it was?Below: the day after I suddenly remembered my polka dot tights. They look great with this outfit.The outfit details: boots and skirt Max Mara Group, eye shirt: SpijkerSISpijkers (see their autumn/winter collection here).
I am trying to show you a skirt or a dress one week and then trousers the next week.
Lovely coats to see at 40+Style, worn by normal women.
