Fun outfits, rings and miscellaneous

boyfriend jeans with white linen shirt and blush pink cross body bagAs it is holiday time, I decided not to do a complete shoot, but to show you outfits and rings which I have put on Instagram. Not everybody is on Instagram and those who are, don’t see everything. I also have a few new outfits to show, like the above one. I am in stitches here because husband Ron was trying to take the photo while fighting off mosquitos. Very funny sight. He was less amused. View Post

In case you missed the first link, her website is www.jolinejolink.com. Dutch readers should really take a peek.  View Post

Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam featured the Yellow Skirt

Yellow skirt (4)Usually you will find paintings and sculptures of old Dutch masters in this museum. But this time the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam featured the Yellow Skirt. For those who don’t know this phenomenon… the Yellow Skirt travels all over the world, from blog to blog. Every lucky blogger who is bestowed the honour, will style it in her own way. As I have often said, I am not a stylist, far from it. And I am not an artist. So my angle is: show it like a ball gown and find an appropriate Dutch setting for it. Voila… the Rijksmuseum.
