Brocante market in Haarlem with Sylvia

Brocante market in HaarlemHere you see the whole outfit with the bright blue top which I wore in last week’s post. I wore it again to the brocante market in Haarlem with Sylvia of 40+Style. It is an easy outfit. As I get older, I appreciate ease and comfort more and more. Still wearing the high heels and tighter dresses, but I am getting better in saying no to uncomfortable clothes and shoes. View Post

What to wear at the Côte d’Azur part 2

What to weat at the Côte d'AzurThis week part two of What to wear at the Côte d’Azur. We were there for 6 days but I don’t have pictures of every outfit (to give Ron a rest, right?). Visiting Vence and Saint Paul de Vence I wore a trouser outfit with flat shoes. I am not able to walk on high heels sightseeing all day. And to me flat shoes means trousers. My friend Daniela of The Pretty Cute manages to wear skirts and dresses with flat shoes, looking adorable. My flat feet and low instep make a flat shoe less cute. View Post

Bright blue top with a camel, pleated skirt

Bright blue topNow, this, I believe, is a stunner of a photo. Ron had spotted a coleseed field and asked whether I had a bright blue top. Hah, as it so happened, I had this outfit lined up for the next photo shoot. The reasonable weather was over but the pretty yellow flowers were not going to wait for ideal circumstances. Rain was expected at 11 a.m and we left the house at 9.30 a.m. Talk about cutting it short.  View Post

Cream wide skirt with two tops

Cream skirt Marella with two tops (8 van 8)Right… let’s start at the bottom this time and show you these awesome shoes I bought in Turin when I was with Daniela. They are by Max Mara and photographed by Shoshanna, the girl who also photographed my checked black and white peplum top with the black trousers. The angle Shoshanna chose is brilliant. You can see the screw through the perspex and .. through the left heel you can see the point of the right shoe. I love this photo and ignore the fact that my vains are getting more visible every day (note to self: get rid of them this winter). The shoes are one of two pairs which I combine with a cream wide skirt in this post. Makes the skirt modern (IMO). View Post
