To celebrate my good friend Gerrit’s birthday we went to Amsterdam for coffee and cake.
He knew that this place recently opened and thought it would be nice to have the celebration there. It has an urban vibe, it could have been us sitting in New York or Paris.
The pastry’s are very good so be sure to go and visit Betty Blue and indulge!
As you get older things change, fashion changes.
Sometimes I struggle with what to wear. Can I stil wear this? How short can I wear shorts, skirts and dresses? For example this season there are some trends that I think I should pass by. Like overalls and crop tops. I think I am too old for that. But ripped jeans? I think yes when you wear them casual chique. Like this outfit :-) Conclusion so far, age ain’t nothing but a number and you have to wear what you feel comfortable in.
For me this is it :-)
Happy week every one!
Just the other day I was reading an article:
You know you’re a fashion blogger when…
You like macarons… Love them.
You own a Chanel bag… Want one!
You walk around in Valentino’s rock stud heels… If only…
You hit the flower market twice a week… I walk past a flowershop every day.
You hang out with fashionable people… Obviously :-)
You get energized by coffee… Check.
You read fashion magazines… Double check.
You wear your jacket around your shoulders… When I can.
The one thing missing from this list is:
You wear stripes because it is always a good idea to wear stripes!
Just saying :-)
When I was in London a few months ago we wanted to go to the shop & other stories. It is a concept by H&M. This fall there will be one opening in Amsterdam and I can’t wait!
There was no space left in my luggage or I would have bought a lot more than just this dress.

Heels Sam Edelman, they are really comfy :-)
After a lot of hard work I am now living in my new home!
Such a joy coming home and being able to go outside on the balcony when the sun shines!
Or making a meal and eat it at the dining table! Sleeping in a real bed! Life is good.
Last week I got the keys to my new apartment. Going from a studio to a three room apartment is a dream come true! But before it’s time to move some work must be done. That means that I have to take a little break from blogging. Hopefully not for long but until then it’s work in progress
The reason I wanted to start my blog was for me to have fun with fashion. Trying to use the trends in everyday life for the thirty something girls/women.
So I asked my dear friend Joeri if he wanted to shoot/make the photos and thankfully he said yes. But to keep it interesting and a little bit different from other blogs we try to pick special places to shoot my blog posts. When friends let us use their house for this shoot we were very excited and full of ideas. Here are the first two from, hopefully, a series of different shoots at this beautiful location in Rotterdam.

A while ago a colleague of mine was assembling a team to run at the Spieren for spieren run in Hilversum. She asked if I would join, of course I said YES, there was plenty of time to practice…
Last sunday was the big day. I did practice, once. But now there was no going back. Don’t ask me how I made it to the finish. Still, it was fun and next year I’ll probably say YES just as enthusiastically as this year.
After the run I went to see my friends who have the most adorable daughter! Still in the mood for a little race me and her went for it but unfortunately I lost :-). A really fun day and the two days after during which I could barely walk because of the muscle pain were worth it.
It’ getting all summery over here, weatherwise. A good day to post a photo of Annette standing in these pink shoes (are flip flops even considered shoes?) from the summer of 2010. The only photograph in the series with Annette actually ín the shoes.
