Green coated skinnies, black sweater and black suede boots

Green coated skinnies and black sweater 2A colleague at work did not know I was blogging…… She must have been the last person not knowing as I have told EVERYBODY. After finding out, she told me she is a photographer and would love to make pictures of my outfits. Can you believe my luck? So thank you Alexandra Psalti. For spending a Sunday in a cold park and actually liking to take my pictures. I still find it hard to believe and am very grateful. Love our coffee moments too.

We did three shoots. All with the same trousers but with different tops and boots. I was wearing a green T-shirt underneath, so changing was not a problem. As you can understand it would have been a lot more difficult if I had to change trousers LOL.We attracked enough viewers as it was although they were not awkward or lingering on. After all, this is Amsterdam where people are not easily surprised and where “strange” is an every day item.

Lots of dogs there too. We borrowed one to take a pretty picture with. It was such a beautiful dog (nice owner too).  In the picture with the dog I am wearing a big belt. Alexandra said it was nicer without the belt. Being pigheaded I asked her to take the photos anyway. I was convinced it would look nice with the belt. But no, she was right. I went through all the photos and it was clear that the outfit was better without the belt.

Good thing about it is, I now know I did not only find a photographer but a photographer / stylist. She even makes sure my hair does not look stupid. YEAH.Green coated skinnies and black sweater 1

If you like shoes and boots, then have a look at some very interesting shoes at The Citizen Rosebud’s Shoe Shine. I saw two pair that were really amazing.
Till next week.

      You know that emphasizing your strong points is the best trick for looking good.

    How lucky you are, Greetje! Will your new photographer also take your photos in the future?
    I am most grateful for my daughter’s friend to take mine. Now my daughter is back for 4 weeks over Christmas and I already told her how busy she will be during this time 😉

    I agree, the jumper looks better without the belt. It is perfect with your skinny trousers. Are the leather or coated? A great look, Greetje!

      Trousers are coated. I could not find leather and liked these too. And I hope she will be taking more photos in future. It will, of course, be a bit of a logistic and time issue.
      You are so lucky with your daughter and her friend.

        Greetje! you look fantastic! Of course I will take more pictures of you in the future! Your blog followers should expect a Harlem rapportage pretty soon! xx

          Oh you do say the nicest things!!! But Amsterdam still has a lot to offer too. We should also try and find light indoor places where they allow us to take pictures. I thought about Eye, but I bet they won’t let us.
          Looking forward to our next “job”.

    Bravo! These pictures are great and you look fabulous in this outfit. I love the coated jeans with black. Don’t you think they are more comfortable than leather, I do? Yours are in a good color too. Lucky gal to find this friend, she has a good eye!

    What a fantastic thing to happen Greetje, you lucky girl 🙂
    The photos are amazing and per usual you look fabulous in this outfit!!!!!
    Thanks for the smile…. beautiful!!!

    Stunning photos Greetje! Lucky you to find such a good photographer and stylist too!! I agree with her about the belt. Looks much better without. I also agree with you that’s a nice dog 😉 Great pants, love them. That’s such a nice color and it suits you so well!

      When I found out how well skinnies suit me, I went overboard and stocked on them.

  6. 9 December 2013 / 19:35

    Great photos! Great props (dog)! It’s so much easier to let our inner supermodels free when there is a photographer at hand – especially when they look out for our messy hair, etc. I’m glad the two of your can play off each other’s interests and enjoy coffee together.
    Your legs look endlessly long in these skinny coated green trousers, with the belt and without. Gorgeous.

      Yep, me and skinnies are good friends. Thanks for the compliments my creative blogging friend.

  7. 9 December 2013 / 20:49

    To find someone who takes photos is one of the problems a blogger has to solve! You have now a new help, so in future we are going to see you a bit different…( as every photographer adds his personal way of looking at things )
    I like your style today and, as sometimes less is more, for me the outfit is better without the belt. The sweater really suits you! Nice place, I love it.
    a bench can be very useful to snap good photos!!!

    • Greetje
      9 December 2013 / 21:25

      You are right, that bench supplied some different poses. And yes photography is key to blogging and the most difficult. Glad you like it. (Amsterdam again….)

      Thanks dear. Hope you have a lovely Christmas here in cold Holland. Wish I could see more of you.

  9. 9 December 2013 / 22:35

    Congratulations, it is not easy to find a good photographer. Yours is very good, your photos are beautiful. The dog is beautiful and you look great with it. I love your look, so simple and casual. The pants are beautiful, and I’m not going to say anything more than your legs (I’ve already said too much). Out belt, this jersey is lovely without it. You look gorgeous in the photos, you congratulated your photographer, although the greatest merit is yours.

    First how lucky are you to have a friend that is a photographer! And these coated skinnies looks so well on you! I will have to agree with photographer that this outfit looks better without the belt.


    • Greetje
      10 December 2013 / 05:52

      Yes, without the belt. Just goes to show I am not a good stylist. Just somebody with the right friends haha.

    Greetje great coated green trousers, and I am a fan of just simple straight turtleneck sweaters. The photo’s are great, it adds a professional touch, lucky you. Not one single negative remark, besides the belt, but you mentioned that yourself. So it is a 10 from me.

    • Greetje
      10 December 2013 / 19:52

      That is a high mark. Thank you very much. I am so pleased with the results. As you say: very professional.

  12. 10 December 2013 / 16:24

    Lovely lovely pictures. I’m in a huge WANT for your skinnies. That color is perfect, in every way. I’ve been staying away from those fun coated skinnies but that color is a must. I think I might have to fly on over and take those off your hands (and closet space). Ok, they look amazing on you and great way to pair them with black. Loving the first sweater the most, and you’re right, stay away from the belt.
    Can’t believe you actually ‘borrowed’ a dog for your photo, hilarious, but it made the BEST photo so way to go!

    • Greetje
      10 December 2013 / 20:01

      We did three shoots and I borrowed two dogs. LOL
      I have paired them with three more tops, so you will be bored to death with them before I am finished showing them.

      I tried to look for the skinnies online, but I cannot find them. Strange. But do fly over. I will go over to the shop and reserve a pair for you. What size?
      (Never would you fly over so close to Christmas haha.)

    Wonderful outfit!! I love leather pants and turtle necks so this is very much up my street, you look wonderful! Hugs, Beata xxx

    • Greetje
      10 December 2013 / 20:02

      The skinnies look like leather Beata, but they are just coated cotton. Very comfortable too (they have a bit of stretch in them). Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

      I do hope that this outfit is ageless haha. Otherwise I look like mutton dressed up as lamb.

  14. 11 December 2013 / 15:41

    How exciting that you found a photographer. Or that she found you, the lovely blogger to be photographed. Loving the skinny jeans on you. The first photo is stellar, but you shine in every pic! Brava!

    • Greetje
      11 December 2013 / 20:36

      OK, after so much praise I should do another blooper haha.

  15. 12 December 2013 / 19:00

    These photos look so good! I like how relaxed you look (sign of a good photographer/stylist!) and hope you two work together again. I agree with the dog, and the belt. You look so good in that black turtleneck, I retract my recent thought that black turtlenecks since Steve Jobs can not longer look chic. You look chic, and so does that gorgeous pup.

    The shoes! Worthy of Shoe Shine, dear Greetje! Midnight black, with proper attitude. Thank you for sharing. You are a star!

    • Greetje
      12 December 2013 / 19:36

      Next shoot will be on December 22. We decided that today. I will try and shine for you.

  16. 13 December 2013 / 08:37

    I am a huge fan of this look.. I can see myself wearing it too 🙂 And I have to say I prefer it without the belt too 🙂 The dog is cute indeed!

      Yes, the belt is indeed a mistake. Funny that you only see that when you look at the photos. Not when you look in the mirror. At least I don’t.

      Don’t I just. You understand that this is why I love skinnies. They emphasize my best points. Which is what we all do. And I am 5ft74.
