Wearing a hat is a new thing for me. Never wore one before, until I got inspired by Judith, the Style Crone.
I have shown you her blog once before. She is a fantastic stylist and Hat Master. Every month lots of bloggers put a picture of themselves on her blog, wearing a hat. Because it is Hat Attack Day. Of course this black hat is not a very daring one. Taking baby steps here. I did order another one, slightly more daring (don’t get excited, only slightly more daring). Will I ever wear them? I don’t know. I hope so, even though they make a mess of my hair.
I am wearing coated skinnies again (I warned you all…), in the colour burgundy this time. I love them with high heels. Absolutely my favourite.
Of course if I have to walk for a long time, I put on my (flat) knee high black suede boots. As I did when I spent the day with Sylvia of 40+Style who was in The Netherlands in December. See the pictures she took when we (Sylvia, Saskia and me) went to the Chanel exhibition in The Hague. After seeing those photos and the ones you see below, I took my boots to the cobbler and asked him to spray them black again as they look very shabby.
The top is in the same burgundy colour. The black jacket you have seen a couple of times before: with my brown/yellow jeans and worn as a suit. To brighten things up a bit, I added this multi-coloured scarf which is a gift from a friend and shown before.
I never noticed the sign “Keep calm and drink Catalan wines” until I was checking the photos on my computer. So Josep-Maria: this one is for you LOL.Below: the glass door of the restaurant / pub served as a mirror. I needed that as I saw from the pictures at 40+Style how silly the hat looks when it is not put on right
Below: this is how I look with my hair blown away from my face. It was so cold when Alexandra took these pictures. She was wearing a coat but her fingers were frozen (not handy when you are operating a camera).Below: these heels were even 1 cm (slightly less than half an inch) higher when I bought them. My cobbler made them a little lower as it was murder to walk on them.
