Jeasns are a staple for many women and I’m sure I would wear them a lot more if I still lived in Europe. I usually find them too hot for Singapore, so they don’t get much wear at all. But here I am in Malden, The Netherlands, in my mom’s garden where they are very handy indeed.
Jeans are very practical when I go on holiday, and this year even 2 sets of jeans made it into my suitcase. I got a bit of criticism from some about my the poor fit of my jeans, when I showed you my very casual jeans outfit. But boy, are they comfortable! So they are perfect for holidays, strolls in the woods and beaches. I still like the comfortable look of those jeans, and I don’t have to worry that they get dirty. This is what these same jeans look like with these clothes and flats (not so nice, but very comfortable) walking shoes. [click to continue…]
As I grow older, I prefer to have my skirts and dresses longer. I still wear them but usually as short dresses and tunics over pants.

This casual dress looks great on its own when going to the beach, but can also easily be dressed up (shown here with brown capris) for other occasions.

Greetje is the most frequent contributor to my style forum, and although you might have thought that she was already a friend of mine, I had actually never met her until this sunny day in Haarlem. I was very keen to meet up with her since I wanted to take some high quality photos of her and get to know the person behind all the quirky posts and stylish outfits. Since my residential address in Holland was very close to where she lives, I was able to visit her in her house in Haarlem where she lives with her beloved husband, cat and dog. [click to continue…]
