Classic clothes?

Fur jacket Emme Lotte 1As most of you did not object to a post with outfits from the past, here is another one. I didn’t upgrade the pictures (too lazy) which means some of them are too dark or too green or… whatever.

Looking at these outfits again myself, I was wondering whether they are outdated. Like the brown long jacket you will see.

If you think they are still good to wear, then we can call them classic clothes. If you say….. that is nice but you have better stuff now, then I should give it away. If you say: don’t ever put that on again… ever…. I should get rid of it as soon as possible.

Please tell me what you think is no longer fit for 2015. You know me by now… be honest. I need your help to unclutter my closet. Each outfit is linked to the original post. If you want to see more of it, just click through.

A walk down memory lane

Lemon green jacket 2Lots of bloggers do it…. showing outfits from the past. Why not me? After all it is nearly Christmas, lots of people are spending time with their loved ones, go to parties and have little time to look at blogs. So why bother? Then again, there are the loyal ones, you, the women who come back every week to see what I have been up to. And you are the ones I want to please most. Which made me decide to give you a walk down memory lane. View Post

Shopping in The Hague

Shopping in The Hague (2 van 27)Let me introduce you to Marjolein, my friend from when I was 20, so we go back 40 years (oh… God…). Last Wednesday I went shopping in The Hague with her (its her hometown). I used to live there for 7 years but preferred Amsterdam.

I work 36 hours per week (or more) in 4 (long) days and Wednesdays I have the day off to enjoy some social life. It is my girlfriend day. View Post

A blue sweater as a background for a pink scarf

SAMSUNG CSCIt was a very cold and grey day, last Wednesday, when I agreed to meet my friend Ineke at Elsa’s for lunch. Elsa’s is a nice café for drinks, lunch and dinner on the east side of Amsterdam. Ever so friendly people serving and if you rise to it, lots of Amsterdam tongue-in-cheek, which I absolutely adore. The one draw-back of living in Haarlem… having to miss this humor. I wore a blue sweater as a background for a pink scarf. View Post

Shopping in Antwerp

Shopping Saturday TrioThese are my colleagues and friends Sabine (on the left) and Anke (in the middle) with whom I form a (whatsapp) group called Shopping Saturday. Because we love to go shopping and as we are fulltime working girls, a Saturday is the day to do so. We have already been to Amsterdam (Haarlemmerstraat and Utrechtsestraat). Last Saturday we decided to go to Belgium, to go shopping in Antwerp. This time our main goal was shopping. Secundary came blog pictures. View Post
