There was a exhibition on Coco Chanel in The Hague, The Netherlands, so me Saskia and Greetje decided to go and have a look. Of course it was a perfect opportunity to do some outfit of the day style photographs as well.
The weather was cold so we were all prepared with coats shawls and even a hat for Greetje. I usually wear ear warmers when outside but did not feel they were fit for a photograph. I did not buy any new winter coats so I was stuck with my old black coat combined with black and white woolen scarf. Saskia was wearing a very stylish leather trench, which would be high on my wish list if I lived in a cold climate (together with a colorful coat, of course!)
Both Saskia and Greetje added color to their otherwise mainly dark outfits. Of course Greetje is a star for wearing a purple woolen coat, while Saskia adds color through her scarf. I also love Greetje’s ‘Russian’ hat.
We could only take off our coats inside where Greetje revealed another colorful scarf to lighten up her dark outfit.
Saskia had aimed for a Chanel-like look with her Chanel style jacket and black & white outfit. I love the mixture of textures in this look. Those leather flaps over her suede boots are just fabulous!
Greetje opted for her coated skinnies that suit her figure so well. She combines it with the perfect black leather jacket and some killer boots. The colorful scarf in flattering colors brightens up the look.
I opted for skinnies as well, which is an unusual look for me. However, I love winter white and could not resist these comfortable skinnies with zippers from Zara. Skinnies are so nice to wear in colder countries as they hug your legs and keep them warm. I combined them with jumpers as my mission this year is to stay warm! This jumper is from Zara as well while the blue turtleneck is from CK Calvin Klein. All in all I wore 4 layers on top!
Tomorrow I will show you some more about the Chanel exhibition itself and how we are all channeling Chanel with some of her famous jackets.

Sylvia you all look so cold but also you look like you’re having so much fun! And look at those fabulous boots you’re all wearing 🙂
Yes we really did well on that front didn’t we? I love all those boots.
I like that you have parted ways with the dark colours of winter and gone with a light pant. That pop of cobalt blue peeking out the bottom of your top makes the look!
What I learned from these photographs is to check how my hat is sitting on my head!! And not just putting it on. It needs to sit a bit lower on my forehead. Oh well, the last picture is better. Or should I put all my hair in the hat?
It was a great day with the three of us. Very relaxing and chatty. I love these girl-get-togethers.
Greetje, are those Stuart Weitzman boots you are wearing?
No my dear, they are of a unknown brand. Cannot find a brand name on them. They are at least 3 years old.
I love all the outfits, but Gretje’s look is probably the one I’m most inspired to emulate. You all look fabulous!
You ladies look fantastic! What a great get-together. And I love that bright coat, Greetje – wish I could break out of my “neutrals” rut. Happy holidays to all. : ) Ana
How fun to see 3 of you featured together! The details of each outfit are so fun and to see how you each accented is delightful. I can’t believe you don’t wear skinnies, since you look so comfortable in them and wear them so well! You definitely have the figure for them -but I truly think they flatter most people, and agree they are warm and comfortable! Craving your boots – they are fabulous!

Yes I always find it cold even though they told me it’s still warm for the time of year. However, I came well prepared so it was all manageable…
It’s clear that you had a lot of fun again, dear ladies! It DOES seem cold and I don’t envy you for that. Brrrr….I hate winter.
Wish I could have joined you… Another time for sure;-)
Yes we missed you Anja. You would have enjoyed it!
