It’s been a month now since I came back from London and I still have such fond memories.
Here I am in Neal’s Yard in the heart of Covent Garden where I stayed. I booked a photo session with the lovely Lottie to get more photos for this site and the new one 40+Entrepreneur.
I can tell you, it’s a quick and easy way to really feel good about yourself! Getting beautiful photos from yourself taken in good light and flattering angels is definitely a confidence boost. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend it. I plan to do this more often if I visit a place for a longer time.
I had my hair professionally blow dried and although it got frizzy pretty quickly, I love the slight twist in my hair on these photos. Makeup is very subtle and I did it myself.
I only had a limited wardrobe in London but this jacket was new and recently acquired from a thrift store in The Netherlands. Leaving the blouse untucked makes for a relaxed, casual chic look.
I’m preparing for another trip and will fly out to Bangkok, Thailand, tomorrow for a business conference, so I will keep it short today.
If you like to keep up-to-date of my adventures there, be sure to follow me on Instagram. I will also share some of the business wisdom I acquire in the 40+Entrepreneur community so if you’re not a part of that yet, be sure to get free access here.

Wow, love that look. So chic yet elegant. Where is your big red purse???
Forgot to photograph it with the look!
Indeed beautiful photos and by Jove, that jacket is good. So glad you bought it. If it had fitted me, I would have done the same. Have a good time in Bangkok.
You look great. I love the jacket and the jeans.
I agree with Suzanne: I’m happy to see you are wearing something thrifted!
Wow! I LOVE that jacket! I’m excited to hear you are shopping in thrift shops!
These are great photos.
I love seeing you wearing colour.
Beautiful photos, Sylvia! The whole outfit looks great. I love the jacket, especially. What would you think about wearing a long-sleeved top under it, so that the long sleeves are showing below the jacket cuffs? I’m thinking about swapping out some of my beloved cardigans for a jacket or two for a bit more of an updated look, and for more warmth as well, so I’d probably opt for a long-sleeved version. I just love the idea of a floral print jacket!
It looks like you had great fun being photographed. After a lifetime of being completely not photogenic, I would not be brave enough to do that. I’d have fun taking the photos, though. 🙂
