Beginning the new year with a sin, a new purchase, this black and white blazer by Copenhagen Muse. It doesn’t count though as I bought it in 2022 and I’ll stick to that. I bought it at kpa.haarlem where it was slightly cheaper than on the brand website.
Of course I should have begun with wishing you a very happy and joyful 2023. Hereby LOL.
(I always get tired very quickly of good wishes; first Merry Christmas a thousand times, then Happy New Year…I know, everybody means well and is so sweet; I am a grumpy moaner. Sorry).
As I said in my previous post, you’ll get the Christmassy atmosphere on my blog after Christmas. I didn’t really dress up for Christmas. At first I wanted to wear this black and white blazer (or is it off-white?) but it was far too warm for the houses we visited. So I went for comfort.
On a sunny day, I got Ron to photograph my blazer, a task he doesn’t like very much, although he is good at it. As we planned to walk to town, have a coffee and shoot a few photos, we passed our beautiful neighbourhood flower shop. Their display and windows are always a nice background and with a black and white outfit, some colour is welcome.
Below: Look at the cute detail on the breast pocket.
Below: I like a quirky piece of clothing; this jacket was love at first sight. The tapered black trousers allow the jacket to shine. After adding a pair of rather comfortable suede high heels I was ready.
Below: And of course, the new black earrings by Lara Design. I had just been to the hairdresser and my hair is all shiny.
By the way, what do you think of my eyes after the eyelid operation?
Below: This is a typical Ron photo. He is always looking for an unusual angle. I opted for the Wandler bag because I wanted a chic outfit, like a Victoria Beckham outfit. My taste is much too fickle to be as sophisticated as she is all the time, but I really like her style and clothes (not in my budget).
Below: The blazer also looks good with jeans. I had Karlijn of kpa.haarlem take this photo in front of her shop. Comfortable and easy on my combat boots.
Below: Here we both are. She hates selfies like this which amuses me so much. She takes selfies all the time to promote her clothes on Instagram. Besides, she is young and beautiful, what’s not to like. But I got permission to publish the photo.
Below: Now this is a terrible selfie. Taken before the visit to the hairdresser when I was trying the blazer with jeans and high heels. I still quite like jeans with high heels and a blazer, but I suppose it is a dated look.
Not too many outfit photos this week as Ron and I turned around and walked home after taking five or six good ones. (Actually, he took 46 photos and I selected five.)
What happened in my life this week
Christmas of course. Spent with family, ever so nice.

I won’t bore you with more family pictures as Christmas is now over.
Below: I wore this on the 25th; room for food. Link to original post with higher heeled boots and a different necklace. I prefer this orange necklace and the more comfortable lower heels; I just hoisted the trousers up higher.
I had to arrange another photo shoot with Loes for next week’s blog post. It stopped raining on Wednesday between 10 and 10.45 a.m. which gave us little time to photograph but we managed. It was indeed not raining, only the wind was horribly fierce as you can see below.
Below: The effect of wind on my hair, something which I always want to avoid. So, this is a rare photo and not very pretty.
The week ended with quiet days and a last-minute switch of energy supplier. The research for that, the paperwork…not funny.
