Lemon yellow trousers and multi-coloured shirt

Believe it or not, there was a time you couldn't take one decent photo of me. I always looked stupid in every photo. My, my... this blogging has taught me a thing or two. Of course when you have a great photographer (Kitty this time), it makes a big difference. I...

An easy blue and white striped dress in lovely Haarlem

As you read last week, I scored 2 dresses at the second-hand shop Kat & Ko. This blue and white striped dress looks brand new. No marks, no fluff, the white is pure white and I love the neckline. I didn't think it would suit me but decided to try it anyway. One...

How to wear a sleeveless dress over 40 (or 50 or 60, whatever)

This pale yellow dress was meant to be used only to elongate another dress which I thought was a bit too short for me. As this dress has no sleeves I never intended to wear it on its own. Why? Do I think that you are not allowed to wear sleeveless tops or dresses when...

Green shirt with pink sequins

Again, a short post. The day was really all about catching up with my friend Helena and I sort of blackmailed her into taking blog photos. Only this was not the intention of the day so we didn't spend too much time on it. Although Helena might see this differently...

Long green skirt

Entering modern times with another midi skirt. Since I have big jumpers and know how to use them on skirts, I am less afraid of buying long skirts. This long green skirt was in the sale for € 60 which I thought was a very reasonable price. I bought it after having had...

Green fantasy tights

Inspired by my own posts on floral tights, I dug out my green fantasy tights, which I first wore with a white dress from the Max Mara outlet. Hadn't worn that outfit for a year due to Knee (+ high heels). As I am on the mend, I could wear it for Christmas at my mum's...

Wide black midi skirt, styled 4 times

The day Kitty and I did this shoot was cold, which meant we needed an indoor place. The item I picked was this wide black midi skirt. Not really being able to style it properly for two years, I now found 9 ways to wear it. Just by shopping my own wardrobe and by...

Long striped tunic

In my post Shopping with Sabine in Amsterdam, Cornelis Schuytstraat, I gave you a little preview of this long striped tunic. Or is it a shirt? I don't know. That day I was wearing my boyfriend jeans and these white sneakers. Somehow I cannot style it differently. To...

Unbelievably warm for the Netherlands in October. These khaki trousers are supposed to be for spring and autumn yet I was quite warm wearing them. Ron (husband) and I decided to hit a terrace in Haarlem for cappuccino on this lovely and warm Saturday morning. We chose...
