A fun photoshoot with friends and a colorful coat for winter

A colorful coat for winter | 40plusstyle.com

Earlier this week I introduced you to photographer and new friend Misja Beijers whom I met in the Netherlands.

She photographed both myself and my two dear friends Greetje and Anja on a rainy day in Haarlem, The Netherlands.


I felt it was the perfect opportunity to wear my new DVF coat that I acquired at a huge discount. Long-time readers know that I often advocate wearing a colorful coat for winter to break up the endless black and gray on the streets. This particular coat is a cooler weather coat or indoor coat. It would be perfect to wear with black or dark blue skinnies but also looks great with jeans.


For this occasion I chose to go for a more ‘fashionista’ look, pairing the coat with wide cropped jeans. Although this is not the easiest silhouette to pull off, it works when you tuck your top inside your pants. This silk red drapey has been an old favorite that you have seen many times before on the site.


The statement ring by Linnie McLarty is an old favorite too.


Another new addition to my wardrobe are these shoes by Lisa Tucci, a new shoe designer I discovered. They are not too high and super comfortable.


Outfit details
Jacket: DVF from the sale (also like this DVF coat)
Top: Alldresseup (old)
Pants: In Good Company
Shoes: Lisa Tucci
Ring: Linnie McLarty


You can see the photographs of my friends and the full story by Misja at her website.

Will you be wearing a colorful coat this winter?

What a great coat!
The colours are so vibrant…cheering up a dull day.
I need a selection of coats here in Scotland from down-filled to wool to waterproof to (faux) fur.
All of them are either classic (like my cashmere camel trench) or colourful or patterned.
Great post.

Love that jacket! Great colors and the ring is so cool.

8 Greetje

He, he, he… I’ll be borrowing that fabulous coat from you. I just hope I don’t spill anything on it, while wearing it. I am always afraid of that. Maybe that is why I seldom borrow. But this coat (and your offer) is too good to pass up.
I love the photos Misja made of you. Especially the one where you have your coat nonchalant over your shoulder.

The photos are fabulous! This gorgeous and colorful coat appears to bring out your playful side. Your friends are stunners too.

The coat is great but it’s your hair that looks most fab. The colour is great and that treatment you mentioned you had is still making the condition look amazing.
