Today I am being featured by the very popular Fabulous After 40 site. Many of my blogger friends have been interviewed before me at this community for women over 40. And of course I am very flattered to join them. This post is an addition to my regular posts on a Sunday. In line with the interview I decided to show some of my favourite outfits. Might be nice for new readers. Those of you who have already seen them, perhaps even commented on them, can sit back, relax and come back Sunday. Or click through to Fabulous After 40. Many of the photos I chose were taken years ago, when my camera skills were …. not that good…But they are still my favourite outfits. I wear each and every one of them.
Note: if you click on a photo, you will go to the original post and see more.
Below: this silk jacket is a remake of the original one, bought in France 10 years ago. Timeless and always makes me feel good. Below: this skirt is one of the best. If you click through to the post you see more combinations with it. Such a versatile piece. It was the sales assistant who came up with this combination with the anchor blouse. My first pattern mixing. I am not good at pattern mixing so I hardly ever do it, but it does make an outfit often much more interesting. Below: my thrifted yellow coat (Benetton). I saw it being brought in and before it hit the store, it was mine. Usually I am not that lucky.Below: these treggings as I think they are called, are a little bit risqué, but I wear them wholeheartedly and feel fabulous. And because of that attitude people perceive it like that.Below: by now you might have guessed I am a great fan of black and white. Here is my tuxedo suit. I wear it to the office, to anything. Not just to parties. Would be such a waste.Below: my yellow ochre trousers. My husband found them and brought them home. Where do you find a man like that? And yes I was a brunette. Now I am a blond.Below: my trusted skinny jeans. I love them.Below: another outfit with these jeans. In the post you can see the very unusual heel of the shoes.I got a few complaints of a fellow blogger that I didn’t wear skirts anymore… And she was right. So I tried to correct that.
Below: my multi coloured dress. Like a T-shirt and to my big surprise it looked good on me. I expected lumps and bumps showing everywhere but no. Sometimes you just have to try something on. Below: oops… black and white again… I usually add an extra colour. Below: I nearly discarded this outfit but decided to wear it once more…. and got so many compliments that it went right back into my closet.Below: a white dress with purple dots. My friend Anja styled it with yellow sandals. Would never have come up in my brain.Below: really…. another black and white number… Am I boring you by now? Below: I give up… I am a black and white girl. With an extra colour. Very confronting, such a walk down memory lane….. Note the polka dot tights.Below: a more recent buy.Below: found another colour!!! My blue Max Mara dress. Below: trying something different than pumps.Below: skirt and top by Marella.Below: shopping at the market in Haarlem. That can be done on heels.All these outfits are my favourites. And there are more. It is so much that I often am ashamed of myself. Then I say to myself: just be very thankful for being so fortunate and be generous.
