GREY VELVET PLEATED MIDI SKIRT

I didn’t have a velvet pleated skirt yet!

This is my fourth pleated skirt! But my first velvet one. As you probably have noticed, velvet is everywhere. I never loved it. I never even liked it. I always saw it as a dusty, old fashioned fabric. But when I was asked to choose something from Dresslily, I knew I wanted a new pleated skirt. And I wanted a metallic pleated skirt since last winter. So when I choose this one I didn’t even read were the skirt was made of and I thought it would be a polyester kind of material, and a bit metallic. When the parcel arrived I then saw that it was a velvet skirt. And even more to my surprise I thought it looked pretty cool!

Are we all used to the colder weather yet? Wearing socks, thights and leggings again? Sweaters and cardigans out of the closet? I hate the colder weather. I walk with bare legs as long as possible, with socks and boots that is. My bare foot days are over now. I so often think: brrrr, I wished I had put on some thights, but I hate those too! I always pull them as high as possible, which results in a ridiculous big belly. Gerben always says: just wear some stay-ups. Yeah, men! As if they are comfortable. But that’s probably not the intention either….

My outfit of the day

I also choose this cable sweater. I know now, with help from The Bad Buy Book series, that I should not wear off-white near my face. But white is good! And I love white and grey together. I am also looking for more v-neck sweaters. I find that much better than a round neck. And it allows this sweater to wear a blouse underneath. Sometimes I like that too. For today’s outfit I am wearing grey ankle boots with the skirt and for accesories I choose very pale pink earrings and a pearl brooche with a pearl bracelet. I know I will be wearing this velvet pleated skirt a lot this season!velvet pleated skirtvelvet pleated skirtvelvet pleated skirtvelvet pleated skirtvelvet pleated skirtvelvet pleated skirtvelvet pleated skirtvelvet pleated skirt

JEANS AND TOP BLOUSE, SIMPLY STYLISH

I am wearing jeans and a top blouse!

I am back from a little break to the UK. I havn’t read any of your blogs. I know, but I will catch up this week and wanted to thank you all for your comments and linkups last Friday!

Now you might think: yeah, what is special about that? Well, nothing! It’s just what it is, a jeans and a top blouse. For me that is simple. I hardly ever wear trousers, almost never jeans. And I don’t like blouses to much. What I do like are culottes. And this is a denim culotte!

* This is a sponsored post but all opinions and words are of myself.

And I like black! And this is a black top blouse. Sometimes you don’t want to stand out to much about how you are dressed. Only sometimes! And what is easier than wearing a jeans and a blouse. ( a legging and a sweater, but you will never see me wearing that!) But I find a regular jeans and blouse very boring, so I was looking for a simple outfit but still a bit stylish. I really can’t imagine anymore that I hated culottes in the beginning. Now they are my favorite in trousers! I also have this one here and here.

Add a little green

This is a perfect outfit for September, when it’s not that warm anymore and you don’t want to wear sweaters already. I hate to wear socks so I always wear my sandals and peeptoes for as long as possible. I added a bit of green into the outfit. Green earrings, my beaded necklaces from Brighton and these gorgeous green sandals! I love these espadrilles, what a fabulous color! But when it’s getting colder I want to try the culottes with boots. I don’t think I have ever worn culottes with boots. And I don’t mean ankle boots but tall ones. have you ever worn culottes with boots? Let me know how you feel about that!

PREPPY LOOK WITH FISHNET TIGHTS & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

How to look preppy with fishnet tights

When I was in my adolescence fishnet tights were especially popular with punks, torn of course. In the eighties it was much worn with the secretary look, think pencilskirt and matching blazer. I’ve done both! Except for the torn part. I hadn’t worn fishnet tights for years, actually because when I wear tights it must be cold. I will stay bare legged as long as possible. And I don’t always want to wear two tights. I have done here. Normally I don’t wear tights under trousers, but I could not find fishnet knee socks. I already had a hard time finding these.

As I have said here, I love this lenght trousers. This black one I wear preferably with a tight black turtleneck sweater and ankle boots. Very simple, and in my opinion quite stylish. A few weeks ago, when we took these photos, it was so terribly cold that I wanted to wear a lot of layers. A basic shirt, this blouse and a V-neck sweater. The snakeprint bracelet is a gift to myself from Ibiza, from years ago. I love a bit edgy ness with a preppy look! I don’t often wear pants, but when I do I like it this way!

SHEER BLOUSE AND BLACK TULLE SKIRT

A sheer blouse and black tulle skirt outfit for Ada

Because Ada gave a party for her first linkup birthday, we had to wear of course a festive outfit! And what could be more festive as a black tulle skirt? Festive, cheerful, feminine, a tulle skirt has it all.

I was actually planning on taking just one picture for Ada. But I liked the outfit so much that I decided to make more for my own blog too. First I thought of wearing red with the black tulle skirt, but I don’t like black and red together that much. And then I realized I wanted to wear a few corsages, that is festive. And the blouse with the gold hearts is too!

I wore the skirt before here and here. Even if a black tulle skirt does look a bit festive, you can wear it very well in a more casual way. I wore it often last season with a sweater and casual boots with a flat heel. The boots with gold stud bow are older. These boots are, I think, the only item I have ever bought on sale were I am happy with. I never find anything special on sale. Yesterday I saw on Instagram someone who bought a wrap blouse by Diane von Fürstenberg! Wow, unbelievable! That will never happen to me. By the way, speaking of Instagram: if you are not following me yet, please do so here!

PLAID PANTS WITH BOMBER JACKET & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

My very first plaid pants!

For years ago I wore plaid much more. I had a plaid pencilskirt, plaid bodycon dresses, plaid trenchcoat etc. But I can’t remember I have ever worn plaid pants. I am really fond of plaid, I like a classic style. By the way, I don’t know wether you name it plaid or checkered, I really don’t know the difference but I like to call it plaid. These pants I bought recently when Gerben and I actually went into the city to buy new sneakers for the both of us. To use in the gym…..not for a sporty look! When we had bought them Gerben said: don’t you want to shop over at h&m? Well, you don’t have to tell me that twice! Bye bye Gerben, see you in an hour!

I love above the ankles trousers, 7/8 lenght. I have skinny legs and with a long upper body long pants make me so drawling. I only have above the ankle pants. I saw this one straight away and knew it was meant for me. I hardly wear pants , but the past season I have bought several, this one and this one. The top was very cheap so I bought the same one in green too. Come on, you all say that green is thè color for 2017, so what could I do? And then I saw the bomber jacket! Isn’t it just a great jacket! I love it, and I know I will be wearing it a lot. Over dresses, but also as a spring/summer outdoor jacket. They had it in all colors. You really should check it, link is under the post. I also still love my patent leather Chelsea boots. They are so easy to walk on, for shopping or doing your groceries. When I would go out for lunch or something like that, I would wear ankle boots with a small heel. I love this bracelet with snakeprint. It is very old, it is a bit to tight now because I bought it when I was much thinner. Because it is still very cold here, I wear a basic shirt under the top. But I love to wear it with a lace camisole.

And I also said that when I reached 100, I would add my favorite of the week. So from now on I will. I will not only choose my favorite because of the outfit, but also because she or he has a great post written or just because……they are my favorite!
