Brown long jacket, skinny jeans and leopard print belt

Sorry guys, although the sun began to shine in The Netherlands, you are going to watch another winter outfit today. I totally forgot these photos and it seems such a shame not to publish them. (Mostly because “a shoot” is hard work for me haha.)

I am wearing a leopard print belt with my brown jacket. Tuesday I told you that it took me a long time before I found a belt like this (at  The other belt you can see in my article two days ago and in the article of Sylvia (40+Style) and me shopping in Amsterdam. We were shopping at the “9 Streets”, a famous area for fun shopping in Amsterdam.

Back to my brown jacket from Pauw, which you have seen in December (brown jacket, cream skinny, cognac boots). Again I was so daring to combine brown (jacket) with black (boots). Yes, yes, I am getting this chip off my shoulder.
An alternative for the boots are my python shoes.

Hope you like it.



Underneath the jacket I am wearing a cream top in exactly the same colour as the belt. Coincidence.



Below: with the python shoes.







Did you see I turned up the sleeves?

Brown velvet jacket and camel pencil skirt

Posting only once a week is too little. Three times a week is too much. So I am now trying twice a week.
Tuesdays and Thursdays. Will you keep visiting me?

One evening I grabbed this brown velvet jacket and was determined to make an outfit with it. The lovely green skirt which created such a nice ensemble, had gone to pieces years ago.
Looking through my wardrobe in search of a light coloured skirt, I found this camel pencil skirt. Never wear it because it can give me a tummy and it creases enormously.

My husband is my critic for a new outfit, so downstairs I went: “What do you think of this outfit, darling?”
He actually judges and answers. Isn’t that nice? And he approved. That wasn’t the end of it (poor man), I still needed an answer to what colour top I would wear underneath it. “Yellow” he said immediately. So yellow it is. As I said before … I am not very good at styling but I have my little helpers… LOL

The cameo was a bit too much in his book, but I liked it. My yellow bag was still in use from the outfit of the day before…. hence… the yellow bag.

The next day I took my camera to work again, as this is the easiest way of getting photos which are a bit different from the boring garden photos. Unfortunately I had a bad-hair-day. And I had to squeeze my eyes because of the sun. But the photos are nice, very arty. Just look at the outfit and ignore the face.


Above left: not really my favourite point of view for photos….but I liked the fact that you see my legs reflected in the glass of the stairs (art over looks).

Got a lot of compliments that day. Which surprised me. But what do I know?


Brown jacket, cream skinny, cognac boots

I was a bit fed up with all combinations in black, although I still have loads of them.
Therefore I went out this afternoon, in the snow, to take these pictures.

It was not a very bright idea to pick that spot underneath the tree as the snow was melting…… The camera was drip-dry secure underneath a little roof of the shed, but I wasn’t.

It is supposed to be very cold today. Haven’t noticed it really. Which is not that strange considering I have been working indoors most of the day. You should have seen me! Dressed in a worn-out dressing gown (with stains….. terrible). Hair…. how shall I put it? Not as neatly combed as normally, is the understatement of the year. Reading glasses on. Typing away, telephoning etc. So glad there is no visual contact yet when you are phoning. At least not standard. In the near future you will have to explain why you leave it switched off.

By the way: hairdresser tomorrow. Not a day too soon.

I have no further comment with these photos. Do you?
