Back to black!

After, for my doing, some color explosions I want to wear all black again, just for one day.( just like Gemma did with her stunning wrapdress). But for you I added a little lilac to the outfit of the day. I must honestly say that I would never wear it this way. I think this tulle skirt is perfect with a simple tee and heels.

I was pleasantly surprised when I noticed that I, among other bloggers, was being featured by Sylvia of 40plusstyle. Thank you Sylvia!

I am every time as proud as a peacock ( do you say something like that? I know another phrase, something with a dog, but I keep that to myself!), When I am being mentioned in ablog. I mean, me? Nancy from Westervoort? hahaha, isn’t is awesome!

Back to the outfit!

Because this cardigan is a little fussy long, I’ve knotted it like a bolero. I wear two thin straps, also knotted. A simple plastic bracelet and a purple corsage because otherwise I think the lilac is a bit faded. And peacock earrings in various shades of purple. There is the peacock again! On the outfit with the leopard print flats, I wear a lot of gold metal bracelets and gold colored creoles with a lacquer belt. But I prefer to wear it like the first picture. All black!

Have agreat day everyone!

    • I now remember, Jodie, how I got the idea of wearing lilac! It was you! I had seen it on your blog! I just remembered it when I saw your comment! Oh, and I haven’t even thanked you properly! THANK YOU, JODIE 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  1. This look is after my own heart. Both you and Jodie have featured lavender. I have one, just one sleeveless blouse that I need to drag out and do something with. You two have inspired me.

    • Thank you so much! I adore this skirt. When I was in my teens, I was a bit of a punker( don’t know if you understand that) and I loved to wear black dramatic items back than. This is kind of a sophisticated and grown up look of my punk period!

  2. Nancy, this is one of my favorite outfits on your blog so far! This skirt is gorgeous and the lilac sweater and big purple flower are fabulous! Absolutely stunning and purple really is a fantastic color on you!

    And you are not alone..I always get super excited if I am featured on someone else’s blog! Is it because we respect the opinions of our fabulous fashion blogger peers?! I suppose, it is!

    I do hope you will join my On the Edge of the Week Link Up as well on Friday!


    • I surely will Shelbee! Yes, you are correct, it is the fact that other bloggers like your style and the interaction you have with them. Thank you for your lovely comment

  3. Like what you did with the cardi – I often will do that too in tying a knot in front with my cardis; I’ve recently taken to expand my own wardrobe by borrowing my hubby’s buttonup shirts and wearing them as knotted cardis over a cami, tank or tee, which is a great top layer for either a maxi skirt or a pair of work slacks. I also love the tulle skirt – it’s so pretty!

  4. Hey Nancy, LOVE the outfit, thank you so much for the mention I feel honoured 😀 It’s like we are on the same thing at the moment as I’m wearing lilac today too haha although not as classy as you and wearing with white. Really love the skirt so much just an all round gorgeous look!

    • Ha ha, yes that is fun. Although I had more eyes for your shoes, I was thinking they go very well with my new pleated skirt! Ha ha ha, thank you and the honour is totally mine 🙂

  5. I love this! I love that skirt … midi skirts are great! Great looks and yes, it is always awesome to be featured!
