Christmas dress-up has gone AWOL

For most of this year’s Christmas days the dress code was “ugly Christmas sweaters”. Noooo…. I hate that. What happened to dressing up for Christmas? I have seen so many pretty party dresses on other blogs. As I am on a spending curfew, there were no new dresses in my closet. But hey… the ones that are already in there, aren’t exactly worn-out. I had plenty of choice. So I cheated. In this post you will find me in normal outfits and the rest in ugly Christmas sweaters. And some hilarious moments. View Post

Piazza Sempione trousers with a print top

Piazza Sempione trousersThis outfit caused my bankruptcy (well sort of, not really). You know, the stuff I bought in Maastricht? These Piazza Sempione trousers are part of a suit with a double breasted jacket. I haven’t figured out yet whether that was a smart move. Why buy it? you may ask. Because I am a sucker for matching gear. In my youth I could never buy really nice clothes. Matching clothes like a suit or a bag in the same colour as your shoes, were things we would dream about.

And something totally different: at the end of this post you will see me in a little video (one and a half minute), speaking Dutch but with English subtitles. A colleague from the bank where I work, interviewed me about our house and how we made it sustainable. It has been on Facebook so you might have already seen it.
