Plum and Burgundy

burgundy and plum winter style

And I'm back...

In my comfort zone, that is. Berry tones and dark reds... Yep, that's my comfort zone all right. I'm so predictable.

Can you believe that I have no less than 3 coats in this colour? That is, 3 down coats... One lightweight down jacket (that you've seen so many times that I've lost count long ago), one really long and thick coat that makes me look like a walking blanket, and this one.

Decluttering, Step by Step...

I have way too much stuff

How did this happen? I mean, I'd like to think I'm a minimalist rather than a hoarder. After all, I can live out of a suitcase for months if necessary, wearing the same clothes over and over again. Quite happily, even.

Then how is it possible that every nook and cranny in my (smallish) flat is full of stuff? Stuff that I don't need, or use, or in most cases even want.

Clearly I must do something about it.

No, I'm not going to go all Marie Kondo about it. Too complicated. And too time-consuming. Any 'method' that comes with a book makes me feel as if I need to take an exam first.

It's decluttering, for heaven's sake, not rocket science! How difficult can it be to get rid of some stuff?!?

New Colours: Coral and Olive

Experimenting with colour

Does this colour combo make me look like a pumpkin? I mean, coral pink and olive green... Both are colours that are somewhat new to me. Or at least colours that I would not describe as 'my colours' at first glance...

Cashmere and Leather

how to wear leather over 40

It's not Luxury if it doesn't feel right

So, the brown leather skirt gets another outing, with a cashmere cardigan, no less.

For me, luxury does not only mean quality and beauty but also how something feels on my skin. And cashmere comes pretty close to perfect in that respect. It feels soft and gentle on my skin, and doesn't make me itch (unlike wool).

Urban Casual

casual style over 40


Not casual chic, just casual. Urban casual. As in, wearing a very casual outfit on the city streets...

A very casual outfit is sort of camouflage, hiding in plain sight, flying under the radar... But that's OK.

Something Old, Something New...

pattern mixing

Not all outfits are fabulous. Some are just boring, or uninspiring. And some are just...wrong. As in, something just doesn't feel right. The individual parts that make up the outfit might be great, separately, but put together they just don't work.

Accessory of The Month

winter rain wear

I love accessories

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you're used to seeing me wear sunglasses year round. But my love of accessories goes deeper than that. After all, I match (or sometimes contrast) my gloves to my coat. And I have probably more scarves than t-shirts. And I certainly seem to form an emotional attachment to my bags.

Yet, this post is not about any of the above. Instead, I decided to name the umbrella The Accessory of The Month.
