Amsterdam

A pair of bright pink trousers, worn three ways

Being on holiday in my own country means I have more time to do photoshoots with one of "my" photographers. This first (holi)day I went to Amsterdam with Loes and wore bright pink trousers. They are second-hand from Kat & Ko and as you know, I love bright colours....

Black sandals with block heel

Believe it or not, I have a terrible taste in shoes. Even my mother told me as a teenager how old-fashioned my shoe choices were. Which is why I challenge myself and pay attention to shoe fashion. These black sandals with block heel would not be the kind I'd normally...

Shopping in the 9 Streets of Amsterdam with Peggy

Peggy and I used to be colleagues until about 8 years ago. We became friends but don't see each other much as Peggy has a full-time job and three children. More than enough on her plate. This Wednesday however was OUR day. In the sense of sustainability, we went...

Striped cashmere jumper

My BVA friends and I were to meet last weekend but poor Marianne was in bed with a lot of back pain, so we had to postpone. Which also meant: no blog pictures. RON TO THE RESCUE (can you imagine him with a cape, flying through the sky  😆 ?). His offer came the...

The EYE film museum in Amsterdam

"My" two photographers were unavailable, so husband Ron stepped in again. No matter how much he hates it, he is always there to help me. It was cold and after much deliberation, we decided to do the shoot of this yellow jumper on the ferry between Amsterdam Central...

Leather jogging trousers

These leather jogging trousers have been in my wardrobe for a few years now. I don't wear them much, which is a shame really as they make quite an impact and are pretty cool (as long as I cover my butt). Wearing pumps with them creates the image I like most; see the...

High tea at the Amstel Hotel

Yes, I know the title of this blog post is "High tea at the Amstel Hotel". And when you see Marijke and me like this, we don't exactly look like the clientele suitable for the Amstel (5 star) Hotel. They let anybody in these days  😆  Our group of friends, the BVA...

Floral tights with a black leather skirt

The floral tights do indeed make another appearance, this time combined with my black leather wrap skirt and a pink sweater. When I showed this combination to Ron (husband), I was still wearing the black leather ankle boots of the floral tights outfit with the red...

Floral tights and a red skirt

All items of this outfit are from my own closet; the only new item are the floral tights. To document it all for you ( 😎 ), my photographer Loes and I went to the Music Building in Amsterdam, called Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ. It is a beautiful building with fabulous...

Shopping in Amsterdam, Cornelis Schuytstraat

We intended to make our shopping in Amsterdam, Cornelis Schuytstraat, another event for the Shopping Saturday girls. Unfortunately Anke was feeling too poorly to join us and cancelled that morning. Sabine and I were already on our way and decided to go through with...

Lemon yellow trousers on the Noordermarkt

One of our favourite Saturday morning outings is going to the markets in the Amsterdam Jordaan. It was lovely weather, not too hot, not too cold. Perfect for my new lemon yellow trousers and white sneakers which I bought at LAB Women's Clothing. When I tried these...

Isabel Marant necklace, Anke and Sabine

There it is, my Isabel Marant necklace, present from Ron when we were in Maastricht. It is such an unusual thing. The cream leather strings can move up and down and by doing so, the golden part in the middle will sit lower or higher on your body. I fell in love with...
