PLEATED SKIRT LIKE VICTORIA BECKHAM & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Where do you get your inspiration?

First I want to ask you, if you want to be kept informered of the latest post and you did not get an notification last Tuesday, to subscribe again in the sidebar with your email. I cancelled my old WordPress.com site and thus the Jetpack plugin that registered the email subscribers. The reminder email for the linkup is something different. I would appreciate it!

Since Victoria Beckham has left the Spice Girls, she is to me one of the greatest style icons. But not only that! I think she’s an inspiration because she did not walk an easy path, also not in her marriage, but she has become, in my view, a great designer. I really love her style. Take a look here at her new collection for Target. This outfit is also inspired on her looks. She has got gorgeous photo’s on her Instagram account.

Wearing it like Beckham…

I wanted to purchase a pink pleated skirt for this season. You guys know that I already have two. And on Pinterest I have a Victoria Beckham board and when I was searching for new pictures I came across this one and I was inspired to wear a pink skirt like that. Yes hello, I know I don’t look as good as she does, am not as talented as she is etc., but I liked the look! So who is your style icon and do you sometimes wear the same look as your style icon?

Speaking of style, I really need your Style stories if I want to continue with the Styled by…. series. So please read this page to see if it is something you like to write about. I would be very sorry if I have to quit these series.white blouse like Victoria Beckhamsneakers like Victoria Beckhampink skirt like Victoria Beckham Love Victoria Beckhampleated skirt like Victoria Beckhamoutfit like Victoria Beckhamwhite sneakers like Victoria Beckhamclutch like Victoria Beckhamcollection Victoria Beckham

PINK SKIRT, RED TOP, BLACK BLAZER & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

I finally am wearing a pink skirt.

But first I ask your attention to the following. Tomorrow is the first of April and April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Red My Lips has started an campaign to wear all month red lipstick. Read below a piece of their website.

Red My Lips is an international nonprofit organization designed to raise visibility and awareness about the realities and prevalence of sexual violence, while combating rape myths and victim-blaming. We run an annual global awareness and action campaign where our fierce and fearless supporters rock red lipstick all throughout the month of April (Sexual Assault Awareness Month) to demonstrate solidarity and support for survivors and start important conversations with people in their lives.

You can find more information here on this organization.

So a pink skirt …and red lips!

Pink and red. I know it is not very original because we do see half of all the fashionbloggers in this combination. But it is so beautiful! This skirt is pretty thin so I am wearing tights underneath and hence also went with a blazer. A small pink bracelet with some thin black ones and pink earrings. A red corsage gives the outfit just a little more cachet. I think I will wear a lot of pink and red this season.

Don’t forget your picture of your worst trousers for The Bad Buy Book.

GREEN FLATS UNDER DENIM & DENIM

Green flats for spring!

I love flats because they are so easy to walk on and look stylish with every outfit. I have them in all sorts of colors and each season I find a new pair. But I didn’t have green ones! How nice was it then when I was approached by FSJ shoes and was allowed to choose a pair of flats! Well, green ones please!

This site is fantastic! You can design your own unique shoe! You can choose from existing models and customize the heel, color etc,. Or you can mail a photo or drawing and completely specify how you want the shoe. How awesome is that! You can find here all information about designing your own shoes. Perhaps I might design my own shoes next time! Wink wink!

Denim & denim and lot’s of green!

I always found denim on denim hideous. Until I tried it here and actually liked it very much. This denim dress is one I often showed on the blog, but I love to wear my jacket on denim! It looks a bit like denim, but then green. The color of the jacket is one that you can wear on so many outfits, but I like it best on denim. When I was asked to choose a pair of shoe’s , I knew they had to be green. Because I just ordered a blue pleated skirt with a sage green sweater and I wanted to wear green shoes with it. The shoes and sweater I will show you later because they are a bit to much ,, spring” And I don’t want to show outfits that I am not able to wear in ,, real life”. When I bought the jacket, I also bought a mint green blouse to wear it with the jacket. I never wore the blouse because mint green as top piece is making me look very ill. So I am very glad that I now have mint green shoes to go with the jacket!jeans and green flatsdenim dress and green flatsgreen bracelets and green flatsgreen jacket and green flatsgreen earrings and green flatsshoes green flatsoutfit with green flats

MERRY CHRISTMAS & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Merry Christmas and the cards!

For years Gerben and I send Christmas cards with a personal touch. Yes, we know that Christmas cards on paper are so 90 s, but we just keep on doing it because we like it! We also like to receive cards and stick them on the door. So if we make the pictures for the cards it’s always such fun. The cats are namely involved too. And they have to wear a Christmas outfit as well. I had bought such a lovely outfit for Castor, it made me terribly laugh. For Teun I should actually buy a dog thing because he is a big cat.

What we do at Christmas.

In the Netherlands we have two Christmas days and on Christmas Eve, the night before Christmas day, we already start celebrating. On Christmas Eve Gerben and I eat at home, we don’t know yet what but there will be wine involved! On Christmas morning we unpack the gifts that we bought for each other while having breakfast, with of course Christmas bread. In the afternoon my parents in law come over to our house and we cook diner for them. We also don’t know what we will cook but again, there will be wine involved. Boxing day will probably be a quite day, perhaps go out for a walk and at night we are going out to diner with a group of friends. That will be a cozy, very noisy evening with a lot of wine involved! I think I will offer to drive……that’s better….

Gerben,Teun, Castor and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas with lots of fun and cozy days!

TIGHTS OR LEATHER LEGGINGS?

Do you like this outfit better with tights or leather leggings?

I see many bloggers lately combine black with off-white. I’ve never been a fan of since it always did too much remind me of a waitress outfit. Yes yes, thirty years ago. But I’m lately already so much on trying, colors, prints, two prints! I thought I could add this one too. So I bought this blouse and did not really know how I would like to wear it. Well, exept of wearing it with a very cool pants and heels. And I will wear it like that, but I wanted to try the off-white/black trend.

How to wear black & off-white.

I bought this dress at the time I was still working, and got 50 % discount on all the clothes, and bought standard everything that was black. It’s a rather brave dress and I normally wear it with leather leggings to give it a tougher appearance. I think the Chelsea boots look good with this outfit. But it’s rather brave. The other outfit is with the leggings and other shoes. I put two pins on the scarf. Yes it is a scarf, you will see on the last picture, I had ordered a leopard print belt that hadn’t arrived yet! In my teens I loved these pins, think Sex Pistols. I own the necklace also for a long time but I think it is such a cute one. I must say that I like the outfit with the leggings the most, but I also think that wearing black and off-white isn’t that bad after all. But now I’m curious what you think![bctt tweet=”Tights or leather leggings?” username=”Nancys Fashion Style”]

BOYFRIENDJEANS, BIRD PRINT TEE & linkup

Simplicity with boyfriendjeans and a bird print tee.

Sometimes, just sometimes I like to wear a pair of jeans. I then prefer a boyfriend jeans with a blouse and heels or a nice tee like today. Bird prints on dresses or shirts I always find nice.  I still remember that when I went to live on my own, yeah yeah long time ago, I had in my bedroom wallpaper with swallows, just like this tee only the wallpaper was white and blue. I think a bird print radiates something comforting, relaxing. Or I just like Alfred Hitchcock!

Why don’t I like jeans?

Well, I’ve always been a dresses and skirts girl, but jeans I always associate as being boring and a ,,just walk with what the rest is wearing” item. It also comes from the time I worked in the east of the country, everyone there wore jeans, really everyone! Women who didn’t even like jeans, did not want to stand out so they wore jeans. The mentality there was not fine, a little underhanded, hidebound(is that a correct word?do you know what I mean?).  So I compare that mentality with jeans or the other way round actually. It of course makes no sense for whole tribes wear jeans and are not underhanded and know how to wear a pair of jeans in a fun, stylish or just relaxed way.

And now do not put all your jeans outfits as a protest in the linkup! Haha!

Enjoy your weekend!
