Coffee in Haarlem with MisjaAnything to do with friends is high on my list. Having coffee in Haarlem with Misja on a Saturday morning is just my cup of tea (pun intended). You have seen Misja on my blog several times (like here). She is a photographer who has a Street Style blog about people over 50. Beautiful pictures and a real tribute to men and women over 50. Her blog is : misjab.nl (my link will get you to her English version). She blogs both in Dutch and English. Would be too much hard work for me. View Post

Brocante market in HaarlemHere you see the whole outfit with the bright blue top which I wore in last week’s post. I wore it again to the brocante market in Haarlem with Sylvia of 40+Style. It is an easy outfit. As I get older, I appreciate ease and comfort more and more. Still wearing the high heels and tighter dresses, but I am getting better in saying no to uncomfortable clothes and shoes. View Post

Mum and me in HaarlemThis week a little bit of everything if you don’t mind. Last Thursday I went to a costume and accessories exhibition at Modemuze OBA, together with fellow Instagram fashion blogger Carin (catoinamsterdam). She is hugely successful on IG and got invited to the exhibition. Would I like to join? Of course!! And I also want to tell you about my mum visiting us in Haarlem on a wonderful sunny day in March.  View Post

Anke, Greetje and SabineYes we did it again…. Shopping in Haarlem this time. At the end of one of these Saturdays our little group of friends can hardly wait for the next date. I think we could happily do this at least once a month. Alas, there is not enough money in the bank for that. We choose a different town each time. As you might have seen, we have been in Eindhoven, Antwerp, Utrecht, Amsterdam, again Amsterdam, and I probably forgot a few times. View Post

Boat tour through Amsterdam, Anne and meMy husband Ron has a company, taking people on a boat tour through Amsterdam. He teaches them how to navigate the boat (if they want to) and shows the sights. More information on amsterdamboatcompany.com if you forgive me this blatant advertising haha. I want to promote his business because he really enjoys doing this. As he gets 5 out of 5 stars ratings, I can only conclude, so do his customers.

When Anne and Kirk contacted me they were spending a week in Amsterdam, could we meet, Ron immediately suggested to take them on a boat tour. Which they gladly accepted. I know Anne and Kirk from their blog Music and Markets Tours. They take travelers on exciting explorations of life and music in Europe. They are in Europe (and Amsterdam) many times. Anyway… as it so happened the week they were in Amsterdam was chockablock for me. All lovely outings and dinners, but hardly any time left. Fortunately we agreed on the Saturday and fortunately the sun was shining that day. View Post
