A blue pencil skirt for lunch with Carin and Sylvia

Blue pencil skirtOh yes, talking, talking, talking. I am famous for talking. People sometimes avoid me because I talk so much. Anyway, last Wednesday I met Sylvia of 40+Style and Carin (follow her on Instagram: @catoinamsterdam). Of course it was hell to select an outfit, knowing you meet two fashion belles. I also wanted to twist Sylvia’s arm for taking blogpost photos. As I have been showing a lot of trousers lately, I decided on this blue pencil skirt. Rather formal, but I know I look good in a pencil skirt, so who cares. View Post

Blue kimono top or rather: a haori top

Blue kimono topIt is holiday time my friends. Therefore this time a short post with very similar photos of my blue kimono top. It is actually called a haori. I gained this knowledge because Shelley (Forest City Fashionista) told me so. Apparently only the long version is called kimono. Thank you Shelley. View Post

Shopping in Leidsestraat Amsterdam

Shopping Leidsestraat AmsterdamWhen you are really broke and addicted to buying clothes (as I am), the last thing you need is a day in Amsterdam with your two friends who love shopping just as much as you do. But, I was still on holiday (which means I am in a merry spirit), the date was set months ago and I also love to be with my friends. You will remember Anke and Sabine as you have seen them many times before, on our Shopping Saturday tours. This time we went shopping in Leidsestraat Amsterdam. We hadn’t been there yet. More about the outfit above at the end of the post. View Post

What to wear in Spain – the sequel

What to wear in SpainRight! Another post on what to wear in Spain. As I said in last week’s post, shopping, sunbathing and eating is what we (6 girlfriends) do on holiday in Spain. And drinking cocktails. This first photo shows you my long blue and white striped tunic. Or is it a dress? I don’t know, could be both I think. Most of my friends were not very thrilled when I tried it on in the shop. The photos they took showed a terrible outfit. And still I could not resist it. View Post

What to wear on holiday in Spain

What to wear on holiday in SpainThis first photo is representative of my holiday with 5 friends who I have known for 21 years. Laughter, laughter, laughter. Oh.. and shopping. My word, these women are worse than me (I do pick them, don’t I?). Which is why this blogpost deserves the title “What to wear on holiday in Spain” as you are going to see a lot of outfits. Not only mine, but my friends as well. I am thrilled to bits that they let me use their photos for a blogpost. View Post
