Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 8 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

My Escada Sport Shorts Then and Now

 In my previous post Montréal Old Port and City Hall ←click link—I did wear my Escada Sport shorts.
Writer and blogger friend I admire: Paula Alexandra Santos ←click link—commented on my outfit, seen in the short video...
Everything the same—except I forgot to get my Burberry folding umbrella 😉.
Keeping that in the pouch of the car seat...
My Escada Sport shorts with matching leather belt.
My Dutch Loints sandals, from The Netherlands and over 40 years old.
Back side where you can see also the linen slouch socks—sustainable and eco friendly pieces.
Escada Sport belt.
Escada Sport shorts in size 34 or US size 4.
Of course they are more faded than in the above video from 1998...😏.
Always loved wearing this soft yellow shirt from Time Square Sportswear–Denver, Colorado, USA.
100% cotton!
Very subtle logo embroidered on the front: ATLANTA
My all time favorite little handbag GABRIELLE.
That hails from the mid 70s from a store in Panningen where I lived when first married...

  2. Very cute outfit! Yes, I can imagine how busy you are and to be honest most out to watch on TV and the movies is junk. I will have a post soon about books I have read! Stay attuned!

    1. Dearest Kelleyn,
      Thank you and yes, a garden requires lots of attention and so does the upkeep of the house.
      We used to call it Hollywood crap when we were living/working in Indonesia. People over there believed we were all living like that... No high morals or family life is being exported with those movies...
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  4. I really like your style. More refined or more sporty, they always remain classy and that's a good thing.

  7. I never feel comfortable in shorts myself, unless I'm at the beach. I love the embroidery on your t-shirt.

    1. Dearest Grams,
      Our climate is just perfect for wearing shorts a lot—subtropical weather allows you to do so.
      Fell in love with the embroidery on the t–shirt and still love it.
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  8. Hi, Mariette an Pieter! I just saw your post and I have to say you look just as BEAUTIFUL as you did in 1998!
    And I also have to say, that today I'm turning 45 years old and I'm proud of saying that you are a role model to me as a woman and that you and Pieter are a role model to Nuno and I as a couple.
    Lots of love, biiiiiiigggg hugs and please, keep inspiring us to look at quality in everything we do in life!😘💗

    1. Dearest Paula and Nuno,
      Congratulations on your Birthday! Wishing you many more happy years together and may God grant you that.
      Thank you for your kind words and if each one of us can inspire just one other person in our life—the world will be a better place!
      Hugs,
      Pieter and Mariette

    2. Thank you SO much, Mariette!
      Today is Nuno's birthday (Iup, our birth days are one after the other!) and it has been a good day. We went on a little escapade and now we are back, but were able to relax and rest!
      I meant every one of those words and I hope I can inspire at least one person, as much as you inspire me!
      Hugs to you and Pieter!
      :)

    3. Congratulations to Nuno and so happy to read that you enjoyed a relaxing getaway! So much needed at times for finding our proper balance of body and soul.
      Hugs to you both from both of us!

  9. Tolles Outfit, liebe Mariette, nun eigentlich immer und das ist wunderbar.
    Gutes erhalten ist wertvoll... deine allerliebste kleine Tasche ist auch genau mein Stil :-)) SCHÖN.
    Und Leinen ist ein so perfektes Gewebe. Ich trage heute eine Leinenhose, die ich mir kürzlich genäht habe und freue sehr darüber. Mitte dieses Monates ist ein großer Stoffmarkt in unserer Stadt... ich bin schon ganz kribbelig und freue mich sehr darauf... ich würde mich gerne an einem Kleid versuchen :-))) Vielleicht finde ich einen schönen Stoff dafür.
    Sei herzlich gegrüßt und habt eine wunderbare Zeit beide gemeinsam.
    Umarmung von Viola
    p.s. die Sonne scheint und der Herbst zieht ein hier bei uns... Zeit für Spaziergänge im Wald.

    1. Liebe Viola,
      Danke und ja, Escada war damals noch meistens aus Deutschland unter Margaretha Ley mit Mann Wolfgang. Ist aber leider nicht mehr so...
      Es ist aber alles Baumwolle, kein Leinen! Darüber schrieb ich hier: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2022/09/our-variegated-blue-flax-lily-video.html
      Viel Glück beim finden vom schönen Stoff.
      Liebe Grüße,
      Mariette
