Cream A-line skirt with eye shirt

Cream A line skirt with eye blouse (8 van 11)One freezing Sunday, husband Ron offered to take outfit photos of this cream A-line skirt. He had installed a new app which predicted pretty accurately when it would rain and when the rain would stop. There was a rain-free window between 11.30 and 12.10…..We hurried to the little courtyard with almshouses which he had selected as background. (See more about almshouses in Haarlem.) Rain was a worrying thing but  there was also the temperature to deal with.  It was only 1 or 2 degrees Celcius (34 Fahrenheit). At least there was no wind in the courtyard. View Post

Blue jacket

Blue jacket and Spijkers trousers (1)Another post with photographs by my husband Ron at his “allotment”. This blue jacket is by Karen Millen, the trousers by Spijkers SIS Spijkers (see their autumn/winter collection) and the shoes: Michael by Michael Kors. You have seen the trousers before. Last summer I combined them with a white tuxedo jacket and with a black jacket. I was not happy with the black jacket …. just a tiny bit too short (how picky can you get eh?). Blue and black are a hot trend (for a while now, but I am a late adopter) and this jacket is slightly longer at the back…exactly what I was looking for, so BUY. View Post

Shopping in Amsterdam… Haarlemmerstraat

Amsterdam Haarlemmerstr 13This time my shopping in Amsterdam was aimed at vintage stores in Haarlemmerstraat. However, old clothes and shoes are less captivating than stunning buildings, canals and beautifully displayed merchandise. To solve that “problem”, my two colleague friends came with me: Anke and Sabine. They are modelling the merchandise. Both are very stylish and shopaholics (like me). Lovely personalities, so much fun to be with. We had a ball. View Post

Playful trousers by SpijkerSISSpijker

These trousers were advocated by my husband. Bought them myself this time. For a change. LOL
The brand is Spijker SIS Spijker, twin sisters who are also creating the brand Spijkers & Spijkers. Very successful Dutch designers.  View Post
