Citytrip to Paris meeting Susan

Citytrip to ParisTrust me, there are days and weeks when nothing exciting happens. Just work, eating and sleeping. September and October though, were crazy months with lots of trips. As you know, Ron and I went to Maastricht for two days as we couldn’t go to Paris. A month later I went on a citytrip to Paris to meet Susan of Une Femme d’un certain âge. Our first encounter was two years ago when she visited Amsterdam with her husband. And we met in Paris last year as well. It is beginning to be a yearly event. Which I like as it is always nice meeting her. View Post

Max Mara sweater with black pencil skirt

MM Green B&W sweater with black pencil skirt (5 van 10)This Max Mara sweater looks black and white but there is a hint of green in it. The photos were taken at the same courtyard with almshouses where we photographed the cream A-line skirt with the “eye shirt”. Not only did we manage to take the pictures in 40 minutes (including driving there and walking up to the place), I also changed skirts and tops. You can see from these photos how cold I was. It seems the colder I get, the more wrinkles are showing. Could also be because I am getting older and older, therefore more wrinkled. Better get used to it as it is not going to get any better.

Baby blue

Blue sweater, blue coat, blue shoes (3 van 9)Referring to last week’s post… remember? We were shopping for red pumps and I bought blue suede ones. As I was paying for them Ron was very content with my blue shoes, because…… (and I am quoting) “he had seen such a beautiful outfit in the shop across the road…. in blue”. I am a sucker for clothes that he likes. I want to buy them immediately because 1) he has great taste and knows how to style and 2) because I buy enough outfits he is not that keen on. So when I can buy and wear something that pleases both him and me… I do. The shop window across the road showed this ensemble in baby blue. (Or is it lavender?) And I liked it. View Post
