Wide khaki trousers by Joline Jolink

Wide khaki trousersJoline Jolink is a Dutch designer. Every new garment she designs, like these wide khaki trousers, has to be versatile. You should be able to combine it with a lot of her other pieces, old and new. That way she creates a sustainable wardrobe for her customers, one you can use for a longer time than just one (fashion) season. In case you missed the first link, her website is www.jolinejolink.com. Dutch readers should really take a peek.  View Post

Cream dress by Sportmax

Cream dress by SportmaxStill on flat shoes. As this cream dress by Sportmax is too short (always was a “problem”) I added trousers. I don’t mind flat boots with trousers.

My friend Misja (MisjaB) came over for a cup of coffee/tea in my lonely hours at home and I asked her very kindly whether she would take a few outfit shots for today’s post. She agreed and we took these in the street behind my house. It was done in a couple of minutes but when you have a professional photographer like Misja, all shots are good.

Not much variety of course, as my options to create a post showing different areas or different backgrounds are limited. It will have to do dear readers. Until the knee is better. View Post

Meeting blogger Nicolene in Amsterdam

Meeting blogger Nicolene in AmsterdamOne of the perks of blogging: you meet kindred souls. Like blogger Nicolene from South Africa. We got to “know” each other through Instagram (Stylecuratrix), when Nicolene showed great pieces from the H&M Conscious collection. I loved them and tried to track them down in Europe. So we mailed and we followed each other’s IG account and I got to like her. She is a laywer by profession and works full time. Which means her blog – Fifty Fabulous (Stylecuratrix) – sometimes has to suffer. View Post
