Green print T-shirt dress (thrifted)

Green print T-shirt dressGrinning like an idiot. That’s me most of the times. Suffering severe cold temperatures in this green print T-shirt dress. Yes, T-shirt dress. Nothing warm about it. Standing in this wind-free corner it wasn’t too bad, but there were other moments when the wind was freezing and my skin had goose pimples. Even Ron, fully dressed with coat, got back in the car afterwards and said: “Oh let’s go home immediately, I am freezing”. You can imagine how it was for me. I did wear a skirt and T-shirt from Bellamy Gallery underneath it, otherwise it would have been too cold.  View Post

Black Tara Jarmon dress

Black tara Jarmon dress 1One of the nice things of going abroad is buying clothes in different shops then you are used to. Often to find out they sell the same thing at home…. Globalisation has its down sides. The time I bought this black Tara Jarmon dress was when we visited Gent in Belgium. Not really far away, just popping over the border, but still abroad. Tara Jarmon is a very good brand and not very well known in The Netherlands. Normally I don’t wear things like this as it can make me look like a stick. I planned to hoist it up until it was a tunic, which turned out badly. It looked as if I had several fat bulges from waist to bottom. Not flattering.  View Post

New Years outfit ? Christmas outfit? Or neither?

New Year outfit 2Is this outfit right for New Year celebrations? Or would it have been the right Christmas outfit? Or is it outdated? That is a question I have been asking myself a lot. Similar to last year when I asked your advice about my Christmas outfit 2012. As my blog was only a month old then, there were only a few comments.
This year I decided for myself that I liked this skirt and tried to update it with booties. I just needed a more modern top. This jacket is very classic, so it does not update the skirt. View Post

Black&white big sweater and skinnies

Black & white Perfectly Basics 4
Oh gosh, fall was here the day I took these pictures. Which meant: COLD and taking photos indoors. In my tiny house with no space and no light whatsoever in dark days. Being a bad photographer anyway, this is a real challenge. Looking at the pictures I can think of two solutions: 1) taking more lessons or 2) having more pictures taken by Alexandra, my “private” photographer LOL. View Post
