London and the UK Blog Awards 2017

UK Blog Awards 2017Right… that was fun! I attended the UK Blog Awards 2017. Not because I thought I could win. All I have is a modest Dutch blog although I write in (pidgin) English. No, it was because two of my blogger friends in the UK were nominated: Catherine of Not Dressed as Lamb and Nikki of Midlife Chic. They were cheered on by most of the members of the Over40Collective. This group of women promotes fashion and style of women over 40. Only the seventh member of this Collective, Lizzy, couldn’t be there because it was her son’s birthday and she has her priorities right. I met all of them (and more bloggers) in May last year at the 3040 Blogger Meet, remember? That was fun too! View Post

White jacket and some holiday shots

Irie Wash white jacket with striped capri (1 van 6)When I left for a week’s holiday in Spain, this was my travel outfit. Flat comfortable shoes, a stretchy blue/white striped capri and a white jacket + top (by Irie Wash). You saw the jacket before in this post. Nothing pinches and layers for temperature differences. Fortunately it was rather warm when we left The Netherlands. We were quite mean as we took all that warmth with us to Javea in Spain. LOL

What was the holiday like?? Well: 30 degrees Celcius, beach with some wind, swimming pool, shopping and 4 girlfriends to laugh with till after midnight. You will see some holiday shots at the end of the post.  View Post

Green trousers with a white jacket

Irie Wash jacket, Marlene Birger trousers, Panara shoes (8 van 11) Green trousers??? Green??? I can hear you think. Yes dears, they are green. OK,  they are charcoal grey/green trousers. I seem to have a preference for these in-between-shades. Remember my (totally different) grey green baggy trousers? These trousers change their colour in different light. They are by Marlene Birger (I love that brand) and are pretty ideal. You don’t feel them so you can put them on for dinner. Plus, when you take them out of the washing machine, you only have to hang them up, no ironing. View Post
