Orange trouser suit

Orange trouser suitI bet you said “WOW, my goodness” when you opened this post. An orange trouser suit is not for the faint-hearted, especially not in such a bright shade. Readers who have been following my blog for a while, know it is definitely something for me. I don’t mind standing out in the crowd. If somebody doesn’t like it, well tough, we are all different, we all have a different taste. You don’t have to like it for me to feel good. Of course if everybody was to tell me I look aweful in an outfit, it would make me doubt. But I do have a mirror and I am not blind. View Post

BVA friends, allotment garden and family

BVA friends, allotment garden and familyBVA friends, allotment garden and family.. means a bit of everything. Not a very thought-through, well styled (ahem) post but more like a lot of things thrown together. You don’t mind, do you? It is about friends, outfits, husband’s allotment garden and a family Sunday. View Post

Wide blue trousers by Joline Jolink

Wide blue trousers by Joline JolinkOne of those glorious spring days, just begging to sit on a terrace and have a drink. I wore my new wide blue trousers, which are very lightweight and great for wearing with sneakers. That Saturday I had to run a few errands in town (on my bike as riding a bike is very good for my knee and walking isn’t). When I was on my way home, I stopped to have a cappuccino at Café de Zwaan. My neighbour Loes pulled up next to me on her bike. Me: “Hi Loes, I am about to have lunch. Care to join me?” And she answered: “Always a good idea. Where?” I knew Café de Zwaan did lunch, so we “parked” the bikes.
