Battle of the jeans GreetjeThe title for this post, battle of the jeans, was Sylvia’s idea. Sylvia (40+Style) and Anja (Curly Traveller) are both back in Haarlem and we are spending some time together. We know each other for quite a few years now and have lots of laughs together. We share the serious stuff too as that is what friends do. Only I don’t spill any (serious) beans on this blog. Not somebody else’s beans in any case. View Post

Dressed like Charlie ChaplinAfter a few more ladylike posts, I am “treating” you to this casual outfit. My husband Ron said when he saw it: “You are dressed like Charlie Chaplin”. Thank you darling. Fortunately he added: “But I like it”. I know this outfit will not appeal to everyone (anyone?). You don’t have to say you like it in your comments. I know a lot of you will not and that is OK. You can say that as well. I won’t be offended. The outfit came about when I had bought the extremely comfortable shoes. I suddenly remembered a Street Style photo I took of a woman which I thought looked different and very good. I will show you. View Post

multi colour Ralph Lauren shirtOK…. the post about Geneva….As you can see in above picture, it was glorious weather. The shirt I am wearing is bought in Geneva. Because as I arrived I lost my belt. The belt matching the shirt I was wearing. Which meant the whole outfit really looked off. Is that a reason for buying another shirt? Hmmm… no, of course not, but Pat wanted to look at something in a big beautiful department store. I passed a mannequin wearing this multi colour Ralph Lauren shirt and stopped dead in my tracks. Loved it. Tried it on and it fit!! It wasn’t even gapping. It is really soft and breezy, covers my arms.. perfect in my book. View Post

fuchsia poncho by HopeWhile visiting my friend Pat in Geneva I wore this fuchsia poncho by Hope Fashion. The “surprise poncho” I call it. Because: 1) the people of Hope gave one to every blogger at the 3040 Blogger Meet which I thought was terribly generous and 2) I really liked it, it looks great on me and it is comfortable. I always imagined ponchos would restrict your movements. This one doesn’t. Perfect for evenings when it gets colder and perfect for days with “in-between-weather”. We have a lot of those in The Netherlands. View Post
