It might be easy for some people to use four colours in one outfit, but not for me. As a matter of fact, this is the first time I have pulled it off. Three colours in one outfit was the best I could do up till now and no, a multicoloured piece of clothing doesn’t count. The above photo is taken in my friend Anja’s (Curly Traveller) garden in front of her shed, with Sylvia of 40+Style standing next to me.
It was Anja’s birthday and we started with blog photos “to get that out of the way” haha.
Below: Two pictures of Anja. She is very boho/Ibiza and was wearing this white see-through dress.
Below: She had cleverly put on a pair of shorts underneath the dress which did the trick very well.
Below: Here I am in four colours: white, yellow, fuchsia and blue. The brand of the white top with a bow at the bottom (half tucked in the trousers) is Pieszak, bought at Levv in Haarlem (read more about Levv in my previous post). The lemon yellow trousers are Sportmax. As I mentioned last week, bought at LAB Women’s Clothing in Haarlem.
Below: Oh there is the bracelet. It was hiding again, like it was in the post with my wide blue trousers. The bracelet is a gift from Klára Földi (Facebook account Strawberry and her Instagram account Strawberrybags). I wear it a lot, just like the bag (a gift from my friend Marianne). You can see the bow on the bottom of the top better in this picture. I hate the ballerinas. This outfit would look so much better with a bit of a heel. For instance with my blue espadrilles (further in this post). What I do like with these trousers are my new white sneakers (very special), also bought at LAB Women’s Clothing, but they were too hot for this day with high temperatures.
Below: And here are my blue earrings (bookending the blue of the shoes). They are ADOR by Ayesha. I found them because Lisa (The Sequinist) was showing us her statement earrings in this post. And down the rabbit hole I went.. Resulting in these gold plated lapis lazuli drop earrings. Love them.
Below: Sylvia prefers her top tucked in the way you see it in the top photo, but I like it equally in the photo below.
Below: The birthday of Anja was on a Saturday and Sylvia and I met again the following Wednesday. Yes indeed, for lunch again haha. Again a lovely sunny day with some clouds in the afternoon which is perfect for taking photos.
Below: View from the restaurant terrace.
Below: Loved this sign outside the restaurant.
Below: The top Sylvia is wearing is actually a dress.
Below: Close-up of the shoes. She is so pleased with them; wears them all the time.
Below: Sylvia suggested posing on the rail. As in “sitting on the rail”. She lost her balance but fortunately fell to the right side. The dry side. Was I laughing? No… you are imagining that.
Below: This was much safer.
Below: We liked the background and used it for my outfit of that day as well. Again four colours in one outfit: white shirt and grey trousers (bought in Spain 2 years ago. Styled with different shoes and bag here). The third colour is the yellow (two bags) and the fourth is blue: bag, shoes, belt, bracelet and earrings.
Below: Close-up of the bracelet: broken pieces of cups and saucers set in silver. They were a purchase for a good cause many years ago.
Below: Just another shot with the bridge as background. If I were a bit better in photoshopping, all these people would have become lovely green bushes.
Below: And the blue earrings again: ADOR by Ayesha.
Below: This canal in Haarlem is called Spaarne. The sun was hiding by this time but it was nice and warm.
Below: Why not me on that bench as well? Or is this too much?
Next week’s post will show Anja, Sylvia, Misja and myself… having lunch… 😆
