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!

*This is a sponsored post but I only show items that are ,,me,, and the words are always my own. You would not expect less from me.

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

FITTED BLOUSE WITH SHOULDER PADS & JACQUARD WOVEN TROUSERS & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

A blouse with shoulder pads…how do you feel about that?

I was actually happily surprised when I was wearing this blouse. I did not notice the shoulder pads when I ordered this one. I mean, when I see a trend for the second time mostly it doesn’t make me happy. Click here for some collections with shoulder pads. But it is elegant, stylish and gives the blouse a little more swoomph! But I think that if you’re wider in the shoulders, you don’t want them in your closet. Just like I don’t want straight trousers because I have no buttocks and thin legs. I look like an idiot whenever I try those trousers.

What about green and beige?

Beige is normally a color that I should not wear on the upper half. But this blouse with shoulder pads comes only in this color, I had to make a sacrifice. I loved it to much! The blouse has brackets on the front, just like a corset. And what about the trousers. I said it before, I don’t like trousers that much but with this one I just felt for the color. I’m not quite happy with the design of the trousers because it is a bit wider. And it also has got a high waist with folds, so it looks like you have eaten everything on the menu at the sushi restaurant.(which I could!) But it’s the color… A beautiful shade of green with a woven leaf print. I look like a wood, a wood in fall! Haha, I even matched my earrings!blouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsBlouse: here

DRAPED CARDIGAN ON FLORAL PRINT DRESS

I love cardigans

I used to love a cardigan because I was always cold……now I have these hot flashes so I need to take something of when one hits me! I also think that a cardigan adds something more. Not only a layer, but color, especiallly with summer dresses like here and here.

*This is a sponsored post but I don’t show items I don’t like and the words are always my own.

Gerben asked me, about a month ago, what I wanted for my birthday.( it was my birthday on August 31th)I said that I wanted a shopping day with him. I hadn’t been shopping for a while. It’s all online shopping. In the past, with girlfriends, we spent a whole day shopping a couple times a year. And I mean a whole day, from opening till closing time! Well, we did have lunch in between. But now with a wheelchair it’s less fun….so to speak… So two weeks ago, Gerben and I went for a day of shopping in Den Bosch. And it was fantastic! To not get tired while shopping is so very nice! We had a nice lunch and had a drink in a cosy place in the afternoon and we went out for diner in the evening too! I bought fabulous things, which you all get to see. I loved this dress straight away, but it wasn’t in my size. This is actually two sizes bigger then I normally have, but it looked pretty small to me. So I tried it on and guess what! It was perfect!

And a sequin bag

What about my sequin cross body bag? Isn’t is just lovely? I never have anything with sequins, but this one was to cute. And I love the bold goldcolored chain. I normally don’t use fashion bags anymore because I always have to carry my oxygen bag, but when I use the wheelchair, I can put the concentrator in the wheelchair bag and then I can wear a small bag on my lap. For my phone, a lipstick……and my creditdard! Lol. And fortunately it is still warm enough to wear peeptoes over here. But I think that will soon be over. Then it is time for tights again.

HOW I WEAR RED & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

How I wear red

We all see on the catwalks, in the magazines and on Pinterest boards, these monochrome red outfits. I am not a huge fan of this color. That is to say, red clothing. I love red lipstick, I almost always wear red nailpolish, I love red shoes, but not clothing. I do have a cardigan, a pencilskirt and a sweater in red. And oh yes, I love lingerie in red.

*This is a sponsored post but I never show or talk about products I don’t like, and always use my own words.

But I wanted to try a monochrome red outfit for fun. Just to see if it would look good on me too!

Do you like to wear red?

It would be fun of course if you all would linkup with a red outfit! Or a garment in that color. But don’t worry, any other outfit would do the trick too! But who is a huge red fan? When I think about you, my readers, there is maybe one blogger(Ada) that pops in my head who wears a lot of red. Am I the only one who doesn’t like it that much? No, I don’t think so. But back to the outfit. My inspiration to wear this outfit came because of the ankle boots. Aren’t they adorable! But of course these ankle boots fits with almost any outfit. You know that I am a bit self-evident( some words I have to look up for the correct translation, this word sounds strange to me, but I hope you understand what I mean), and therefor I am wearing a black bracelet, I have a red one, but that looked to boring….. I am wearing red earrings though.red

GREY VEST ON OCHRE PENCIL SKIRT

Wearing a vest for the first time

I have never worn a long vest. I actually owned a short vest once! The longer ones make me feel like this. The nice thing about a collaboration is that you can choose something, and sometimes I like to choose something to try. To see if it works for me. Because if you buy it and you find out you actually don’t like to wear it, it ends up in The Bad Buy Book! That is good for Shelbee and me, but it still is a shame! Lol.

*This is a sponsored post, but I don’t write about, and show items I don’t like!

A vest on a pencil skirt

I wear this pencil skirt almost always with brown and sometimes blue. I always thought it was a bit of a difficult color. But lately I saw a lot of black and white with ochre and I was inspired to try it too. I have also seen a lot of very nice sweaters in this color, but when I wear ochre in my face I look very sick. So let’s not do so! But it is a beautiful Fall color. I also got to choose a top and you know I love wraped stuff. Wrap skirt, wrap dress, wrap top, wrap with lots of guacamole! Lol. So I choose a basic black wrap top. I am wearing the grey boots with it because the vest is not black, it’s dark grey. The grey boots are somewhat softer with this outfit. Of course I’ve adapted the colors of the accesories. And check out this lovely necklace! I have it for years now, and it’s still one of my favorites.vestvestvestvestvestvestvestvest

HOW TO WEAR LEATHER LEGGINGS IN FALL & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Leather leggings weather!

Yes, at last I can wear my leather legging again! Faux leather legging is what I actually mean. In the summer it is way to hot to wear these, but now that it is colder I can finally take them out of the closet. This legging is so very nice to wear, the waist is pretty high so you don’t have to pull it up all the time. And it is a very stretchy one, and very stylish….at least I think so. Leather leggings are so versatile. You can wear them with a long cool sweater, with a tunic and you can even wear a dress on it. It has something ,,edgyness,, yet it is also a very feminine item. That is to say, when you wear it with heels. I never actually wear the leather leggings with flat boots. I’m not a biker. Gerben is! ( he does wear his leather,,legging”(read pants of course)with flat boots). But that’s a totally different look!

You have seen this before!

The very very observant reader might think: where did I see that striped thing before? Right! Here! But the tee was a bit to short, and as a 50+ woman walking around with a naked belly is to much Little Britain for me. So I cut the sleeves et voila! I wear blue earrings and my blue sandals, which really were my favorite last season. My dragonfly broche has a little bit blue in it and I showed my blue leather blazer before here.leather leggingsleather leggingsleather leggingsleather leggingsleather leggingsleather leggingsleather leggings
