Flared jeans or wide legged jeans?

Flared jeans with Kermit jacket (28)_LRNever thought I would ever buy them again, flared jeans or wide legged jeans… what is the right name? I think it is flared jeans. These are by Paige. I had never heard of that brand before and found them in a high end fashion store in Vancouver, during the 40+ blogger meet-up this summer.

Sylvia of 40+Style liked them as well and bought them too. See how she styled them (and her white flared trousers) here. As she lives in Singapore and I live in The Netherlands we happily copy each other. Truth be told I copy her more than she does me. (Thanks for your mediation with this black and white belt Sylvia haha.) View Post

Red sweater from Ally

Red sweater white skinnies sneakers (1 van 1)One Sunday late afternoon, Ron and I went to a nearby estate to walk our dog Charlie. She loves that park and I thought it would be a good photo opportunity. Because…. I was wearing the red sweater gained at the clothes swap during the 40+ Blogger meet-up. It used to be Ally’s who is a transgender and blogs as Shybiker. Ally picked my black pleated skirt with a coloured rim from the swap. I hope it was a fair trade as I really enjoy this sweater with its see-through hem.  View Post

Railway station of Haarlem

Yellow Kenzo sweater black leather trousers (15 van 20)Last week’s blogpost got quite a good review. A hard act to follow. You do understand, I cannot always deliver such posts, don’t you? LOL… Why not? Well…because of the factors time (or rather the lack of it, due to a full-time job), availability (of husband with camera, time and willingness), good light and nice weather (usually bad in The Netherlands in winter). Fortunately my dear Ron asked me once again whether I wanted anything photographed for my blog and suggested the railway station of Haarlem as a setting. Beautiful old station, which meant Dark! And the day was Grey. And it Rained. View Post

Lime silk blouse DVF

Lime yellow blouse with B&W (122)_LRNow this is totally my kind of thing: black and white and a bold colour like lime. Perfect. Add to this lime silk blouse DVF (Diane von Furstenberg) and there is quality too. You may think: how many black and white items can you throw into one outfit? I can hear you all shouting: “modesty my dear… not too many”. But, that is not me. If I have it, I’ll flaunt it.  View Post

Yellow summer jacket, yellow sandals, black&white accessories

Yellow summer jacket, yellow sandals, B&W 1
As I have often said, I am not very good at styling, at making new combinations. But because there are many women (and my husband) in my life who are, you think I am just being modest, haha. Not true but never mind. The outfit you see today is a blatant copy of the original, thought up by Trina of Tea Time with Trina. She created 5 combinations with her new yellow sandals. View Post
