Aleida blazer by All Saints

Aleida blazer by All SaintsNext to my COS top (see previous post) I also bought this jacket in London. It is called the Aleida blazer by All Saints. A shop which I thought wasn’t in The Netherlands and had a good reputation. That was a mistake. Not the reputation or the Aleida blazer but the presumption the brand wasn’t available in my country. It is. Big shop in Amsterdam, Heiligeweg. Plus easy ordering online. Learned that for next time. Ordering from the UK is pretty good for us, far better than ordering from the USA (shipping and customs kill the fun in shopping). Whether that will still be this easy after Brexit is implemented…..

Ping Pong Post with a green feather tunic

Green feather tunicAn additional post this week. Because I was invited to be part of the Ping Pong Post, which means: an item is sent to several bloggers who have to style it their own way. And then we all post the result. This time The Item is a green feather tunic which belongs to Anna (Anna’s Island Style). She is the one who came up with the Ping Pong Post idea and I am really flattered that she included me this time. As she knows I am not half the dare devil she is. View Post

3040 Blogger Meet in London

Yellow dot jacketMarvellous, fun, great, warm… I have many such words to describe the 3040 Blogger Meet in London last Monday. Because I want to share it with you I am publishing this post a bit earlier than usual. Our host was Catherine of Not Dressed as Lamb and sponsor was the brand Hope (Fashion). I finally met bloggers in real life who I have followed for three years, like Catherine herself and Annette (Lady of Style).

Of course it was a bit of a thing what to wear (…), especially as the weather was sort of in between. Turned out to be pretty warm. Fortunately I had this yellow dotted jacket (see above) by Sylver, a young Dutch brand. (I really love this jacket too, but so far my self-control is still working.) View Post
