Black and white dress with stripes and polka dots

Not only has this black and white dress got stripes, it has polka dots as well. What's not to love, right? I added polka dot patterned tights to keep it co-ordinated. Remember two weeks ago when I told you about my neighbours' wedding and the bubblegum pink stretch...

A polka dot co-ord

Isn't this polka dot co-ord lovely? I think it is very feminine and so does husband Ron. He saw it on me when Kitty took photos of me in the shop of kpa.haarlem. It was the post with my multi-coloured knitted cardigan. Ron was so taken with it, that he paid for the...

Denim jacket, orange ankle boots and an orange coat

Buying a denim jacket when you know that this shade doesn't suit you, isn't the smartest move to make. Still, it is in my wardrobe, which means I either make it work or give it away. By adding a blue, white and yellow scarf, there is more 'light' near my face. I...

Python print boots and a green jacket

The concept behind this photoshoot was good: let's go to the garden behind the Ripperda kazerne (kazerne = barracks) and shoot an outfit with these python print boots. In reality, not such a good idea. The garden wasn't very nice (it is winter... duh) and the barracks...

Gold and black jacket, bought second-hand

Loes photographed one of my Christmas outfits, this gold and black jacket from Lolly's Laundry. I bought it second-hand with the original price tag still on it. Listening to my friend Marjolein's suggestion, I altered the high neckline into a small V. I didn't find it...

Multi-coloured knitted cardigan and fun in a store

Kitty had asked Karlijn, the owner of kpa.haarlem, one of my favourite stores, whether it would be all right if we had a photo shoot in her store if it was a cold day. She agreed and of course I chose to feature the multi-coloured knitted cardigan I had bought there a...

Short blue coat and white lace-up booties

Apart from a simple cream top, you can see all my recent purchases in this post. (Remember when I "fell off the no-shopping wagon" when I was cruising Haarlem with my friend Marja, a couple of weeks ago?) I started my shopping with a short blue coat from one of my...

A yellow jacket with black leather trousers

Normally I would have used a head-to-toe shot of my outfit to start with. Only such a photo of Haarlem's town hall is too good not to use as a first picture. Besides, you cannot miss that yellow jacket with black leather trousers. The jacket makes for a beautiful pop...

A houndstooth blazer in green and cream

Apparently this is a houndstooth blazer, not a houndstooth jacket or worse, a checked jacket as I would have called it. I went back to the site of ME+EM, where I bought it, to see what they said about their garment: a houndstooth blazer it is. They showed it with...

Dries van Noten sweater with black ribbons

As it is a highly unusual design, I bought this Dries van Noten sweater with black ribbons. Was it wise? Will I wear it a lot? Hmmm, time will tell. It is one of my biggest pitfalls when buying clothes. So far I managed to have a wardrobe filled with unusual pieces...

White trousers with a blue top

Of course this combination is the easiest of all: white trousers with a blue top. To make it a bit more interesting I threw in two more colours: red and yellow. If you are a loyal reader, you will recognize the trousers, bag and shoes. They have been featured a number...

A colourful midi shirtdress

My friend Marianne gave me this colourful midi shirt dress on one of the get-togethers of the BVA girls (my group of friends). She got it from her daughter and it is by H&M. It came with a belt in the same fabric, but somehow I lost that. I tried about seven...
