Meeting Karen in a red and white outfit

Greetje and KarenThis is a special post, one by request. About meeting Karen (above) in The Hague. Karen and I would never have met if it wasn’t for Elizabeth and her Instagram account: the Antique Goddess. Elizabeth also has a blog called: The Vintage Contessa. I first “found” her on Instagram and started following her, reading her blogpost off and on. We commented on each other’s blog and Instagram photos. And Karen, born in California and living in The Hague (The Netherlands), did the same. Karen’s Instagram account is Karen Persson.

Elizabeth “knowing” the both of us, insisted we’d meet and that we would send her a photo of the two of us as proof. For her birthday, which is today. We thought it was a charming idea. So one Friday morning when I had the day off, I drove to The Hague which is only 45 minutes by car, door to door. Everything is close by in The Netherlands. View Post

Flared jeans or wide legged jeans?

Flared jeans with Kermit jacket (28)_LRNever thought I would ever buy them again, flared jeans or wide legged jeans… what is the right name? I think it is flared jeans. These are by Paige. I had never heard of that brand before and found them in a high end fashion store in Vancouver, during the 40+ blogger meet-up this summer.

Sylvia of 40+Style liked them as well and bought them too. See how she styled them (and her white flared trousers) here. As she lives in Singapore and I live in The Netherlands we happily copy each other. Truth be told I copy her more than she does me. (Thanks for your mediation with this black and white belt Sylvia haha.) View Post
