Silk tunic blouse

Silk tunic blouse and brown boots Jan Jansen 2aThese photos were done by me in the garden (again) as I did not have a photographer available. The start of the outfit were the boots…. a steal at 20% of their original price at the end of the winter sale. Made by Jan Jansen. This Dutch shoe designer is famous all over the world. To me his shoes have a touch of magic, somewhat fairy-like. I combined these boots with cream trousers and a green silk tunic blouse to emphasize the boots. View Post

Shopping in Amsterdam the Nine Streets area – part 1

Amsterdam II 091For our second trip of shopping in Amsterdam we go to the “Negen Straatjes”: the Nine Streets. An area of old buildings, quaint little shops, lots of little lunch places and (for the time being) hardly any big stores. This is the best fun shopping area in Amsterdam. Which consist, as you probably already have guessed, of 9 little streets. Sometimes when I go there with a friend we can only cover 2 streets as we go from door to door. View Post
