Lemon yellow trousers on the Noordermarkt

Lemon yellow trousersOne of our favourite Saturday morning outings is going to the markets in the Amsterdam Jordaan. It was lovely weather, not too hot, not too cold. Perfect for my new lemon yellow trousers and white sneakers which I bought at LAB Women’s Clothing. When I tried these items on, I had just purchased the white asymmetric summer sweater at Levv. Remember I tried on a black sweater on red skinnies? That was the black version of this white one. It was in this post with the Shopping Saturday girls in Haarlem. That day ended abruptly with the broken finger of Sabine’s son (he is well again) and as the girls went home, I cycled to some other shops. What can I say? I am incorrigible. View Post

Long scarf by Essentiel Antwerp

Long scarf Essentiel AntwerpLow temperatures in The Netherlands means sweaters, leather trousers, boots and scarves. This long scarf by Essentiel Antwerp doesn’t count as winter wear. Purely for decoration. Essentiel had a dress in this print as well, which was a bit short for me. Plus, a dress with such a prominent print is something you usually don’t wear too many times. As I wear a lot of black and white (boring but my favourite combination), a scarf like this is a perfect item to jazz things up. View Post

How to wear a skirt in a contemporary way

Black leather skirt white sweater purple necklace (2 van 11)To continue my search in how to wear a skirt in a contemporary way, this time: my black leather skirt. You have seen it three times before: twice awefully styled, when it was still ankle long (here and here) and once after I had it cut (here). It was a good decision to take the hem up, but I still styled it in a very classic way. Looking at other bloggers I came up with this outfit and I am beginning to like it. View Post
