outfit in burgundy BURGUNDY, PINK & RUFFLES!
September 27, 2016

I’am wearing burgundy, pink & ruffles today.

But first what about the weather! Here in the Netherlands this weekend it is 25 degrees! Can you believe it! Incredible, and a clear blue sky, not a cloud to be seen. Apart from the fact that I love the sun, I’m quite a chivery person, it’s also perfect weather for my lungs. The dry air is really very nice, I don’t need to cough so much. So I feel fitter and less stressed. I hope the weather stays this way for a long time, then infections stay away for a while! By the way, what do you think about this jacket? It stays in my head but I don’t know wich color I prefer. And I was looking for new boots, I want leopard print ankle boots but I know exactly what I want so they probably don’t exist, and I ended up on the H&M site . They have very nice boots and shoes, these are fantastic and I also love these. But well, let’s talk about the outfit!

Burgundy ruffle blouse and vintage pink skirt.


As you all know by now burgundy, or bordeaux, is your color this fall. Many of you have already shown a great outfit in this color. Today I will show wich item I perchased in this color. I was actually looking for a blouse with ruffles. In the early eighties I was a big fan of these kind of blouses thanks to Prince and Adam & the Ants. I found this blouse and wanted to order it in black when I saw this color. I knew right away how I wanted to wear the blouse! On a pink skirt. I have said it before, I love the combination of red/pink and blue/green, in all color variants. This skirt is more,, vintage pink” and I like the texture of it. It has got pleats but it’s kind of a knitted skirt. I combined it with gray, wich I seem to be wearing a lot these days! Gray ankle boots and a gray fringe suède bag.

Wanted: Guest bloggers!

I would love to, occasionaly, have a guest blogger tell her/his story on this blog. A story about their style, how long you are wearing this style and why and with pictures that reflect your personality the most. If you are interested, please send me a message via the contact page or through social media. I look forward to it!

I wish you all a great day!





  1. I remember the very first time I saw a combination of pink with grey, and thinking to myself that it’s the most unusual pairing ever but that it worked 🙂 and this time, seeing it on you, Nancy, affirms that opinion. Your outfit looks very lush and romantic and feminine without being heavy or girlish, and that’s a gorgeous thing to achieve 🙂

  2. That’s such a beautiful color combo, Nancy! Wonderful outfit!

    And I also love the jacket you linked to! My initial thought was that I like the black one a bit better, but I really like the other color, too. Plus, you already own a lot of black, right? Oh, I don’t know. Maybe you should get both! 😉

    1. Haha, No it is dark Blue! And I bought the blue one! The Green was a bit to light and I already have a lot of Green these days! Thank you for thinking with me!

  3. Both the material of the top and the skirt flow beautifully in this look – and the combination of colours is surprisingly pretty! The burgundy blouse is my fave, such a great piece to have in your wardrobe 🙂


  4. That is easy! I LOVE it, I adore the colors and the sweep of the skirt and the cascading ruffles of the blouse, and those boots! Love them, they make fall worthwhile.
    I am glad the climate is god for you and your lungs, wishing you good health, you have got the glamour down!
