Blue white yellow summer shirt

Blue white yellow summer shirtA very short post today. About this blue white yellow summer shirt which I bough last year. It is by an Italian brand called Caliban and very thin and soft (silk). With sleeves. Very good for a hot summer’s day and still covering my arms (which I prefer).

Today (Sunday) I will be on my way to London to meet other bloggers. I am very excited about that. Finally meeting a lot of bloggers whose blog I have been following. Of course I will show you pictures of the day next week. As I suppose all of us will do. But first this outfit.. View Post

Bloggers get together

Suzanne Carillo (4)It is getting quite busy here in The Netherlands with bloggers coming and going from all over the world. OK,OK that is a bit exaggerated. Still, in July blogger Dan from The Pretty Cute was over from Italy and now Suzanne from Suzanne Style Files (Canada) is staying in The Netherlands. And two more bloggers get together with us: Anja and Sylva. View Post

Amsterdam and Haarlem with Daniela

SAM_4903_LROn day two of her visit, I explored Amsterdam and Haarlem with Daniela. Well… explored…the weather was unkind and forced us to sit inside a lot. Lots of rain showers. We started in Amsterdam, near the Amstel and Staalstraat, where Waterloo square is. View Post

What to wear to Barcelona?

On a balcony at Casa Batllo MKnowing I would want to do a post about my little city trip, the big question was of course: what to wear to Barcelona? The temperature for those three days was going to be 25, 28 and 30 degrees Celcius which is very warm for me. Also, high heels (my favourite) were out of the question. Hours of walking is not something you do on high heels. Well… very few of us do. How to look nice on flat shoes with hardly any clothes on? View Post

Blue Kenzo jacket

Blue Kenzo jacket 3

This Kenzo jacket I bought in Paris, courtesy of my husband. (He gets mentioned quite a lot, doesn’t he? Let me know if it starts to irritate you. LOL)
Together with the jacket came the Kenzo top, which you recently saw in my post about a yellow summer jacket.

The jacket is not an easy shape for me as it is not fitted. Some of you might remember the struggle I had with my grey boyfriend jacket (part 1part 2 and part 3). Heather Fonseca of The Style Confessions solved that problem for me. She visualized her advice by fabulous sketches how to wear my grey boyfriend jacket.

So after such struggle you’d think I would be warned and stay away from loose jackets. Not me.
