Unbelievably warm for the Netherlands in October. These khaki trousers are supposed to be for spring and autumn yet I was quite warm wearing them. Ron (husband) and I decided to hit a terrace in Haarlem for cappuccino on this lovely and warm Saturday morning. We chose restaurant Zuidam, for its unique location near the river (called Spaarne) and near a working windmill in the centre. View Post
When Kitty suggested to go to the Stedelijk Gymnasium to do a photo shoot on a Saturday morning I needed to look it up on the map of Haarlem. Oh there!?! Right in the centre of the city. I had sent her a photo of the outfit with the leopard print ankle boots and asked whether it would match the surroundings. As you will see, it did.
The weather was sunny with cooler temperatures. A coat was necessary so the off-white Burberry trench coat, my second hand deal, takes the stage as well. View Post
Orange patent leather ankle boots. An item not for the faint-hearted. Let me tell you, you get noticed when you walk into a room. Up till now the comments were very positive. Or people who don’t like them are scared of me and don’t dare say so 😂. These ankle boots will be great with my Diane von Fürstenberg tunic, but that outfit is for colder weather. Because the colour and shine of the boots leap out at you, I kept the rest of the outfit quiet. At first I was wearing my skinny jeans with the blouse. Changed it for these faux leather leggings, thinking you might be sick and tired of the jeans. (Although you will see them again next week.) View Post
This leopard print top is exactly right for the fall weather. Not too warm and not too cold. Usually in the Netherlands, this in-between-weather lasts for about a week, almost 2 weeks. Then we plunge into the cold. There are many in-between-clothes in my wardrobe and I never get the chance to wear them. Last Sunday when these pictures were taken was a horrible day; wind and rain and hail storms. My new photographer Kitty didn’t have time until a week later, my photographer Loes is on holiday and my husband Ron as photographer is out of the question. What to do? View Post
Remember, two weeks ago I showed you this jacket in my post Shopping in Amsterdam, Cornelis Schuytstraat? Nynke (owner of the shop Wynia) tracked the jacket down in my size. Cheerfully I went back to the shop, determined to buy only the jacket. But… as I looked at the trousers, I decided to give them a try. And me liky. Me liky very much. Richard, one of the stylists at Wynia, gave me black pointy pumps to assess the outfit better and I was sold. To the pumps as well, but they had to order half a size smaller for me. I am a difficult customer 😆 . View Post
