The title for this post, battle of the jeans, was Sylvia’s idea. Sylvia (40+Style) and Anja (Curly Traveller) are both back in Haarlem and we are spending some time together. We know each other for quite a few years now and have lots of laughs together. We share the serious stuff too as that is what friends do. Only I don’t spill any (serious) beans on this blog. Not somebody else’s beans in any case.
Below: left Sylvia and right AnjaBelow: we were having lunch in Vogelenzang in a lovely place called Buitenplaats Plantage. They serve organic, biological food from a local farm. When I saw the menu I was a bit apprehensive but no need for that: the food was delicious and beautifully served. It is a big restaurant with a terrific atmosphere, lots of light (good for the photo shoot!) and terraces for sitting outside.
Below: me wearing my boyfriend jeans (the ones you saw last week), high heels so my sprained ankle gets a little nudge that this will be the future again (you saw these heels before with skinny jeans), white shirt and a necklace my mum gave me for my birthday a while back.Below: Sylvia was wearing her Paige flared jeans with a blue jacket and a fun shirt. Hating the fact that her higher heels were still back in Singapore.Below: Anja wore skinny jeans and a Chanel-type jacket.We were goofing around. Luckily the other people who were also having lunch, were amused about the photo shoot and not irritated.
Below: “no, you’re not”, she replied. Let’s call it a draw haha. My deep brown tan is the result of that holiday week in Spain.Below: a picture of Anja without her jacket, in her blue / purple shirt. She has purple rings on nearly every finger as she is a “more is more” woman.
Below: my beautiful birthday present from my mother. A necklace of murano glass beads. Like a rainbow. Below: we asked the waitress to take a few pictures of the three of us and I set the camera with Anja and Sylvia as target. You can see where this is heading: trouble. As Anja got hold of two pens in the shape of a piece of bark.
Details of what I am wearing: boyfriend jeans: G-Star, white shirt: Marina Rinaldi, red patent leather peeptoe shoes: Unisa.
Next week I will show you some (outfit) pictures from my holiday in Spain with 5 girlfriends.
Have a look at Catherine’s I will wear what I like, where you can see lots of examples of using a pop of colour in an outfit. Or in this week’s I will wear what I like, showing summer dresses. Catherine has a blog called Not Dressed as Lamb.
