Do you mind standing out? I don’t.

bright pink sweaterThe Haarlem Bloggers got together one last time this summer and I decided to wear my bright pink sweater. I bought it from South of the River and I love the impact of the colour. Yes, it leaps out at you. Fine by me.

Sylvia of 40PlusStyle has left for New York, Anja (Curly Traveller) is nearly on her way to Singapore which leaves Misja (MisjaB) and me to roam around Haarlem. Therefore Sunday last week, one last lunch/coffee meeting.

We paid a visit to the restaurant of Dolhuys, the museum of the mind. More information if you click the link. We met here before in 2016 when Misja photographed me in my purple silk jacket. It is close for the four of us and provides a beautiful background. View Post

Wide cream skirt with black and yellow polka dot blouse

Wide cream skirt with black and yellow polka dot blouseThe Haarlem Bloggers (THB) got together again. Misja wanted to take photos and we all agreed. I decided to wear my wide cream skirt by Marella again. Wel.. again. that is a bit much as I only wore it on the blog twice: when I bought it in Turin (almost last picture of this post) and later, after I styled it with the fun leopard sweater and the bright blue silk top.

I really wanted to style it with a tight top, but because of the fashion these last years, I only have wide tops. I remembered a trick and tied this transparent blouse to create the waist. View Post

Bloggers get-together in Haarlem

Bloggers get-together in HaarlemIt doesn’t happen often, but we were able to arrange a mini bloggers get-together in Haarlem. Misja (MisjaB), Anja (Curly Traveller) and I live in Haarlem and Sylvia (40+Style), although Singapore based, almost always spends some time in Haarlem in the summer. We all know each other and we all have a blog (well.. Sylvia’s blog is a website to be honest). It is not all about fashion and outfits in our conversations but as you can understand the subject does come up. View Post

Four colours in one outfit

It might be easy for some people to use four colours in one outfit, but not for me. As a matter of fact, this is the first time I have pulled it off. Three colours in one outfit was the best I could do up till now and no, a multicoloured piece of clothing doesn’t count. The above photo is taken in my friend Anja’s (Curly Traveller) garden in front of her shed, with Sylvia of 40+Style standing next to me.  View Post

With Sylvia of 40PlusStyle in Haarlem

With Sylvia of 40+Style in HaarlemLast week I spent an afternoon with Sylvia of 40+Style in Haarlem as she is back in the country! What a joy. She is a friend and my blog mentor. She kicks my butt when I am lazy. Naturally I reserve time to meet her in the weeks she is here. This day we had lovely sunshine and we went for lunch, like we often do. We have to eat, right? So why not do it together. The weather has been so good here in The Netherlands, really warm (29º C/84ºF) with rainstorms because of the same warmth. Not too bad in this west part of the country but causing floods in the south. Back to my Wesnesday with Sylvia.  View Post
