Checked blouse and mint green booties 1The facts that the colours were so vivid and that the blouse closed properly over my bosom spoke greatly in its favour. Coming home I remembered I bought some mint green booties a month ago in the sale for next to nothing. Don’t they make a good combination? 

This means I can be casual, walk on flat shoes and still look the part. Those are my favourite outfits.

The shop were they sold this lovely blouse is called Perfectly Basics. This is really an online shop, but you can also go to their headoffice in Haarlem and try it there. Which I did. Of course the fact that the blouse is rather explicit, means you cannot wear it that often. As the girl in the shop tried to point out. What a breath of fresh air she was. At last an honest sales lady. She showed me a similar blouse, cream coloured. Of course you can put a thousand colours tops underneath a cream blouse, making that a much wiser investment (and it was a lot cheaper too). But the cream one did not fit properly across the chest and I am pigheaded.

The pendant on a leather string is a leaf dipped in gold. Found at an arts and crafts market in Paris last May. Perhaps a bit dowdy, but I like it.

I really don’t like these skinny blue jeans on me with a long(ish) top. Much prefer them with a short dress and heels. My black skinnies are fine but these blue ones make me look silly.[twocol_one]Checked blouse and mint green booties 4[/twocol_one] [twocol_one_last]Checked blouse and mint green booties 6[/twocol_one_last][threecol_one]Checked blouse and mint green booties 11[/threecol_one] [threecol_one]Checked blouse and mint green booties 12[/threecol_one] [threecol_one_last]Checked blouse and mint green booties 10[/threecol_one_last]Below: trying to take photos in The Netherlands, where the wind always seems to blow…Checked blouse and mint green booties 7

I forgot to mention that my husband’s reaction to this blouse was: Yee-haa…. Thanks dear.
