Elegant styling of a pencil skirt

Elegant styling of a pencil skirtThis outfit is for Daniela (The Pretty Cute). Because she started following me for my ladylike dresses and the elegant styling of a pencil skirt. So no skinnies today but a (rather short) pencil skirt. View Post

Cardigan by Max Mara with yellow shoes

Cardigan Max Mara and yellow sandals (7 van 12)-2Before summer is over you had to see this outfit. The cardigan by Max Mara is of course one of the items I bought at the Max Mara outlet in Turin. The bag as well. The top is by Zara, trousers are old; shoes by Michel Vivien, a Paris shoemaker (seen before here and here). The shoes were terribly expensive (fortunately a gift from husband Ron) but you can remove the flap leaving only straps, so you get two different pairs of shoes for the price of one (any excuse will do).  View Post

Blue Kenzo jacket with green and yellow skinnies

Blue Kenzo jacket with yellow skinnies 6It is so springtime in The Netherlands…. 21 degrees Celcius this weekend. Wonderful… but it did present me with a slight problem. All my photoshoots with a cold winter nose and winter outfits were not appropriate (really). And I had little time to prepare a post as I am trying to have a life outside blogging. Which is not easy. Therefore I was delighted to find a series of spring / autum photos waiting for me already prepared for publishing (did them early winter when it was too cold to publish them). My Kenzo jacket with green and yellow skinnies…. so much better than with normal trousers like I wore here. The skinnies make the jacket edgier. View Post

Yellow summer jacket, yellow sandals, black&white accessories

Yellow summer jacket, yellow sandals, B&W 1
As I have often said, I am not very good at styling, at making new combinations. But because there are many women (and my husband) in my life who are, you think I am just being modest, haha. Not true but never mind. The outfit you see today is a blatant copy of the original, thought up by Trina of Tea Time with Trina. She created 5 combinations with her new yellow sandals. 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
