Purple silk jacket and a photo shoot

Purple silk jacket (9 van 13)One Sunday Sylvia, Anja and myself arranged to meet Misja Beijers, female 40+ photographer with a blog, showing many street style photos of women (and men) over 40. A really inspirational blog. Both Anja (Curly Traveller) and Sylvia (40+Style), had discovered this lady who is also living in our town Haarlem. As we all have quite a few things in common, a meet-up was organized by Sylvia. What should have been a beautiful sunny day, turned out to be a very humid, rainy day. Which ruins my hair completely. And you know how fussy I am about my hair….

Meeting Misja was fun (I will see her more often if possible) and she kindly took our pictures that day. A bad hair day is no reason to be a spoilsport, right? View Post

A dress in yellow, black and white

Yellow, black and white dress (1 van 22)Finally some sunshine. What a lousy spring this has been. Husband Ron suggested we would do one of our favourite things: go to Amsterdam and drink cappuccino on a terrace facing the busy market of the Lindengracht. I decided to wear my dress in yellow, black and white. This dress was amongst the clothes I bought in the department shop while being told off for taking photos. Remember?? (See the full story in this post.) This dress is on the short side for me, as are the sleeves. But I liked it so much, I decided to ignore these shortcomings. Brand: Claudia Sträter.

Daniela (of the blog The Pretty Cute) gave me a (soft) kick up my bottom to wear more dresses and skirts again. Thank you Dan. It is true, people treat you differently when you are dressed elegantly. View Post

What to wear to Barcelona?

On a balcony at Casa Batllo MKnowing I would want to do a post about my little city trip, the big question was of course: what to wear to Barcelona? The temperature for those three days was going to be 25, 28 and 30 degrees Celcius which is very warm for me. Also, high heels (my favourite) were out of the question. Hours of walking is not something you do on high heels. Well… very few of us do. How to look nice on flat shoes with hardly any clothes on? View Post

White dress with purple dots

White purple dress 5

 Last Thursday you saw my yellow sandals with a flap. Today you see them without the flap. I think the flap is too much in combination with this  dress. 

After I bought the dress I found out that the purple dots were hand printed…. which means: dry clean only. Bummer …. The brand name of the dress is S. Sung which means: Samantha Sung, made in Bali. View Post
