Orange leather skirt in winter

In fall you were all very enthousiastic about this orange leather skirt worn with peeptoe shoes. It is not difficult to combine it with winter clothes. Just throw on a black sweater, black tights and black boots or shoes and Bob’s your uncle. I did that at Christmas, but it was a bit too easy. Together with friend and neighbour Anja (Curly Traveller), we came up with this outfit.  View Post

Grey green baggy trousers

Grey green baggy trousers (66)_LRReaders who have been following my blog from the start, might have seen this outfit before, as I published a post about these grey green baggy trousers, back in November 2012.That won’t have been many readers though. Besides, this time I have changed shoes for boots and added a scarf and a coat. So plenty of new things to see. View Post

Shopping in Amsterdam the Nine Streets area – part 2

Amsterdam II 174
Same shopping tour, same clothes, different steps, different street, no scarf.  Great to link the two posts about the Nine Streets by two similar photos. By accident fooks, this was not a deliberate strategy, not a plan.
As you have seen in my previous post about the Nine Streets I was with my friend Helena, who is a sweet and patient friend. Not minding the numerous times she had to wait until I was done photographing. View Post

Animal print jacket

Animal print jacket 1
On the fourth day of my shopping tour through Amsterdam, my friend of that last day, called to say she would be late. As my feet were hurting anyway, we did not go to Amsterdam. In the afternoon we went for a coffee in Haarlem. Just before closing time we strolled past a shop called A guy named Sue which sold this jacket (to me…). Another day with a failed resolution (not to buy anything).
The jacket is very light, you don’t even feel you are wearing anything. It has a camouflage lining, but I hate camouflage print (sorry camouflage lovers).  View Post

Summer vest with leaves

It is so true that you can only really see what your outfit is like AFTER YOU HAVE TAKEN A PHOTO.
This time it not only showed me that the bag was too matchy/matchy (= not good in most cases… as in this case). It also showed me that the colour of the bag is far too severe with this white skirt. That did not show in the mirror. View Post
