blue knitted sweater breaking fashion rules

I keep on breaking fashion rules!

Oops, I did it again! Lol! But seriously, I am breaking another fashion rule again! A few weeks ago I showed you an outfit in gray & brown and last week a totall white one. And now I am wearing brown and blue together. Well what can I say, I’ve always been a bit unruly. And often to honest. And they say honesty is the best policy, but it isn’t. Not to the outside world! But then there is also the difference between being honest or rude. Dutch people always need to have an opinion about something and want to express that everywhere. When I am abroad it strikes me how rude and unkind Dutch people can be( myself included!) also in bloggerland. My foreign readers and followers are always so kind and so supportive and helping me by giving tips that are really helpfull. Well I should definitely not everyone lump together because lately I met some real nice Dutch bloggers. But in general Dutch bloggers will not support you quickly and rather criticize then say something nice. But hey, I am Dutch too. And I am also the one who thinks she should express her opinion. And I am a very impulsive person and I also write impulsive. Well and then sometimes you have these situations where you think: that could have been done more tactful. Yes indeed, on the other hand, I don’t like it when people say one thing and do another. But I will count to ten and read my writings first! ( said that already so many times to myself)

Breaking fashion rules!

Oh common! I said it before, there are no fashion rules anymore! Blue and brown go great together! I have showed you this skirt here and now I have another way of wearing it. As a midi skirt. Isn’t this a versatile piece or what! I love my blue suède boots and because I hardly wear more then two colors in one outfit it was obvious to me to wear a blue sweater also. A denim blouse underneath and a necklace with blue beads. I like it like this although the skirt is very thin so a 50 denier tights would be better to wear underneath. So now I have showed you all the options of this skirt! Do you like this one? Please let me know. And just be brutal honest with me….I can handle that….I am Dutch! Lol.

  1. Isn’t it fun breaking all the rules, Nancy?
    I think you’ve done a fabulous job with this color combo!! I styled this color combo once on my blog per a request from a reader. I think I don’t normally put these color together otherwise though because they seem so dark. But seeing how great it looks on you, I’ll have to try it again!
    So why are the Dutch like that? Is it the way you’re trained as kids?

      1. Oh yes, I do, I do… Just see any drunk passing out on the street of getting kicked out of a nightclub in Spanish holiday resorts, that’s probably a Finn…

        1. And if you see in the same Spanish Holiday Resort someone sitting ,or hanging, in his restaurant seat, calling the waiter yelling: Hé, Hé Mario, hurry up met dat beer, then its a Dutch tourist thinking he is king in a foreign country!

  2. Personally, I like brown and blue together, especially in the fall and winter. Many plaid fabric designers use these two colors together, it makes for an interesting outfit. You look great in the combo and the boots are fantastic! You could also wear a blue denim skirt with brown suede boots and brown tones on top! I think it looks really stylish and cozy. Perfect for the season.

    1. Thank you, I think you are right about denim and brown. I thought about it earlier tonight, we were having dinner with friends and I thought about wearing my suede boots with denim pencil skirt!
