White cherry print dress by Max Mara

When I got out of the dressing room at Max Mara in Paris, wearing this white cherry print dress, my friend Susan (of Une femme d'une certain âge) went "Ohhhh, lovely"...which immediately sold the dress to me. The previous day my husband had already picked this dress...

Green and white striped jumper and Shopping Saturday

Green and white striped jumper and Shopping Saturday

Although my style is really all over the place and not something specific like bohemian, I think you could say that jeans with a smart top is my signature style. In this post you'll see the jeans with a green and white striped jumper. Perhaps the white is off-white, I...

A cream jumper, a city beach and a city market

Loes and I set off to a city beach in Haarlem, called Oerkap on a sunny day to document this cream jumper. It was just the right temperature for it. Apparently I am a woman of contradictions as I like this cream jumper just as much as I liked last week's colourful...

Navy blue blazer with cream trousers

It was a stroke of luck that the Paris post was published last week as this outfit and the one of two weeks ago were created with the same pair of cream trousers and boots. Although this time with a blouse and a blazer, the accompanying colour choice is again navy...

Cognac coloured trousers with a yellow Kenzo jumper

Saving money and the environment today by combining my cognac coloured trousers with a yellow Kenzo jumper. Both were already in my wardrobe, like the rest of the outfit. It is hard for me to create outfits but with the amount of clothes I have got, it is ludicrous...

Wide black trousers with a soft yellow jumper

It is very hard to photograph these wide black trousers because of the volume. In my opinion the soft yellow jumper by Joseph goes well with these trousers, but I bet a lot of people would prefer the combination of a tight top paired with voluminous trousers. I will...

Flared black midi skirt styled in a modern way

Styling a rather classic skirt, like this flared black midi skirt, isn't easy for me. I tend to make it look frumpy, old-fashioned. I will show you a couple of previous styling to prove my point. Below: I will start with the most unflattering styling of all. This is...

Black linen dress, a midi dress to be exact

Nothing as easy to style as a black linen dress, or any black dress really. I bought it at my favourite address: kpa.haarlem, again because Karlijn, the owner, modelled it on Instagram. I knew immediately that this was an ideal dress for me with the full skirt, the...

An atypical trouser suit

Most trouser suits I have seen, have jackets with sleeves. Mine hasn't, it is rather different. Not only is it sleeveless, the jacket and the trousers are an unusual style, which is why I call it an atypical trouser suit. I bought it at kpa.haarlem, after Karlijn, the...

Black Vivienne Westwood blouse

My friend Katrien gave me this black Vivienne Westwood blouse. She never wore it and thought I might like it. And I do. It took me a couple of hours to style it, while sending photos to Katrien for feedback. We both liked this skirt and these shoes best with the...

A striped jacket with big sleeves

Because trendy stuff, like a striped jacket with big sleeves, will become quickly dated, it is not something I am usually very fond of. In a couple of years or perhaps already next year, someone might say: "Oh that is quite old, isn't it?" On the other hand, if...

Oversized pastel green shirt

Talking about a garment which covers "all sins", how about this oversized pastel green shirt? And it wasn't for that reason why I fell for it. It is because it reminds me of the kind of thing an artist would wear to create a painting. It is fun and quirky (in my...
