Lime silk blouse DVF

Lime yellow blouse with B&W (122)_LRNow this is totally my kind of thing: black and white and a bold colour like lime. Perfect. Add to this lime silk blouse DVF (Diane von Furstenberg) and there is quality too. You may think: how many black and white items can you throw into one outfit? I can hear you all shouting: “modesty my dear… not too many”. But, that is not me. If I have it, I’ll flaunt it.  View Post

Street Style women over 40

Streetstyle aug 2014 (4)A couple of months ago I asked you whether you still liked my reports on Amsterdam (see tab Amsterdam, top navigation of this blog). Or whether the concept was getting stale. In case you are all fantastic liars… you brought it upon yourselves… I will continue these reports.

One reader (thank you Charlene) replied to my question “what else do you want me to show?”. She said she would love to see how stylish, mature women in other parts of the world are presenting themselves. STREET STYLE women over 40!! Fantastic idea. View Post

Bloggers get together part two

Photo by Anja the Curly Traveller (11)_LRThings can go a bit crazy when you put four bloggers together who are mad about clothes. OK fair enough, this was not my idea; crazy Anja and Suzanne came up with it and I played along. Reluctantly, I will admit, as there wasn’t anything flattering for me in the clothes box, being a size larger than the other three. The photos in this bloggers get together part two, are taken mostly on the Saturday (see part one here). Taking advantage of the weather (and my husband), we went for a boat cruise through Amsterdam. Always fun. View Post

Bloggers get together

Suzanne Carillo (4)It is getting quite busy here in The Netherlands with bloggers coming and going from all over the world. OK,OK that is a bit exaggerated. Still, in July blogger Dan from The Pretty Cute was over from Italy and now Suzanne from Suzanne Style Files (Canada) is staying in The Netherlands. And two more bloggers get together with us: Anja and Sylva. View Post

Amsterdam and Haarlem with Daniela

SAM_4903_LROn day two of her visit, I explored Amsterdam and Haarlem with Daniela. Well… explored…the weather was unkind and forced us to sit inside a lot. Lots of rain showers. We started in Amsterdam, near the Amstel and Staalstraat, where Waterloo square is. View Post
