BLUE EARRINGS ADDED TO MY 37 PAIR! & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Blue earrings and a blue ring boho style

When I was thinking of a title for this post, I had to make a guess how many earrings I actually had. Btw, I only had one pair of blue earrings! (to make sure you understand that I needed blue earrings!)The next day I took the picture of all the earrings and I counted them.( I am so terribly honest that I can’t bare it to put a wrong amount here) And there were exactly 37 pairs of earrings! How coincidental! But good, that aside. With so many earrings you can say that I love earrings!

Me and my love for earrings

I can remember that I was six years old when I got my first earrings. That happened at the jeweler with a needle and a cork( yes, I am that old). After my ears were pierced I chose pendants with ladybugs and I got a bag of candy. In my puberty I expanded my pierced ears by five, at each side. I wanted to have my hole earache(?) full, but the fifth one gave so much pain that I left it at five. I wore hoops in all, in a different size from big to small. You can find here some very nice examples of wearing many earrings in each ear. I wore this till a few years ago. But at one point I found it to be a bit ordinary and that so many earrings didn’t fit me anymore. Now I wear earrings in two holes. In the top a small stone and in the lower small golden rings or larger earrings, depending on my outfit.

Well and how can you surprise this earring fanatic more then let her choose a pair! Fantastic. I choose these boho style statement earrings because I only have one blue pair!( oh oh what a shame!). And I choose this statement ring too! If you are a fan of statement earrings too, you really have to check the Happiness Boutique site.

CASUAL OLIVE GREEN OFF SHOULDER DRESS & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Nice and easy in a casual dress

Most of the time, with clothing, the way a dress or skirt looks is more important to me then comfort. I have this especially with shoes. When I was about four years old, my grandfather and grandmother took me to a shoe store, in a nearby village, where they had a special device for kids. They could watch through the shoes at the feet of the little client. To see if the shoe fit. Because if I saw some black lacquer shoes, I would say straight away that they were good. Of course that had to be checked out! I still search for shoes by their appearance and not if they are comfortable.

But now for a change a casual dress

Because I hate wearing old joggers and a old worn tee on the couch in the evening. But that is the time I want to be comfortable too. And have the cats sitting on my lap. This dress is ideal for that. With a belt and some accesories it’s stylish. I wear wooden bracelets here and a necklace with wood. ( actually a Jord watch would fit perfectly with this outfit!)And I pulled one side of the dress up and stuck it with a small earring for a bit more fun effect. And when I want to relax in front of the tv with my cats and Gerben and a nice drink, I’ll take off the belt put my shoes off and curl up on the couch! But still fashionblogger worthy! Besides, I also played a little with the pictures. But I will not do that anymore, don’t be afraid, I like my pictures better with no filter. With wrinkles and my own teint and bumps and all that kind of badness, but that’s me! That’s Nancy!me in a casual dressgreen casual dressgreen and brown in casual dressfashion casual dressfashionable casual dressfashion over 40 casual dressfashion over 50 casual dress

FLORAL WRAP DRESS

Always feeling happy in a floral wrap dress

We are back a week from a short vacation to England. I will not bore you with the pictures because they are always the same. We love England and especially Sussex, and we went there for the I don’t know how many time! We had fantastic weather and spend a lot of time at the beach. And we always go to Brighton. Really a great city! So now our 25-year anniversary party is been( I write a post about that) and the holiday is over, it’s back to real life again. Fortunately, we still have great weather here in the Netherlands, so we can eat outside every night and stay outside till bedtime. I think that is so relaxing. When we got home there were a lot of packages that need to be unpacked, tried on and be photographed. Enough to do! I still remeber writing a post a while ago about how fun it seemed to be working with bloggers and companies. I also know I was complaining a little. Because it seemed like everyone had fun collaborations except for me! Now I really have to plan wich package and company comes first etc. How crazy is that! And….more important! I now have such a nice collaboration with Shelbee! Our Bad Buy Book series! I love it dear Shelbee. But one of the packages that was ready for me was this amazing floral wrap dress.

Floral wrap dress

I am already fond of dresses but especially wrap dresses. And after all the happy floral and pink and red outfits of the last weeks, I also like to wear a black dress again. But all black seemed to sober for a dress in this season. I wear very little orange but this dress has it combined with brown and I think that is very nice. Color, but still understated. The fun part of the dress is the high low hem line. I love that. I didn’t see it when I ordered the dress. An extra bonus! Btw, I later remembered I wore this shirtdress last year in orange and pink. Forgot all about it. And wearing the same shoes. I wore it right away yesterday!fashionable floral wrap dressfashion over 50 floral wrap dressdresses in floral wrap dressoutfit floral wrap dressfloral wrap dressfashion over 40 floral wrap dressbrown shoes and floral wrap dressfashion floral wrap dress

CHEVRON PRINT ON DENIM PENCILSKIRT & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

What is a Chevron print exactly?

A chevron print is a v-shape that looks like a zigzag pattern. Most of you will recognize it from Missoni. But the chevron print is much older then that. It dates back from ancient Greece where it was seen in many art forms. And of course the chevron figure was and is used in the military and on police uniforms. Let’s keep it with fashion. Missoni’s popularity came in the 70’s when Diane Vreeland, editor of Vogue at that time, championed the chevron print. That’s why the chevron print always has a retro vibe. But Missoni still uses the chevron print in their collections. Missoni is working together with Target for a cople of years now.

How do I style a chevron print?

I actually had in mind, to stay in the 70’s vibe, to wear my grey pleated skirt and my new pink mules with this jumper. But you have seen that skirt often enough and you can imagine yourself how it would look. Next time when I wear it like that I will take a picture and show it. I choose to wear the sweater with a denim pencilskirt and light pink peeptoes. The sweater I bought at Primark. Sometimes you can find little gems there! I hardly ever do, but sometimes…pink peeptoes and chevron printchevron print sweaterpencil skirt and chevron printoutfit with chevron print me in chevron printdenim skirt and chevron printfashionable with chevron print

THE BAD BUY BOOK -TROUSERS

Welcome to The Bad Buy Book trousers!

The Bad Buy Book is a series hosted by Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge and Nancy from Nancy’s Fashion Style. We wanted to establish together something fun and new. We both talked about our”Sitting Shoes” and so we came up with the idea for The Bad Buy Book.

We all do our best to look great in our outfits, choose the right accessories, the right makeup, the perfect shoes, and wait for the best light to shoot the most flattering outfit photos. And now we are asking you to show us the items you don’t feel your very best in. You know, those,,Sitting Shoes”, that dress that is actually not quite your color, the skirt that is a size too small but the saleswoman said it looked amazing. We all own those items!  And while they may look fabulous, they don’t always feel fabulous! So we want you to show us your bad buys and tell us the story about them! What made you purchase the item?  And why do you dislike it now?  And why not share them with us?  We buy these things for a reason then hide them in the back of the closet.  Now it’s their turn to share the limelight.

This month theme is,,Trousers”! You know the too loose, too long, too short, too baggy, too staticky, too itchy, too hot, too thin…..or whatever the case may be!

Well, let’s take a look now at your bad buy trousers!

First of all my lovely co-host Shelbee.The Bad Buy Book trousersI am always a sucker for a great pair of distressed jeans and I also am a fan of higher quality denim.  When I saw these on sale at American Eagle, I wanted to give them a try.  I really liked the high waisted style when I tried them on, but I tried them on with a long tunic so they look slouchy and cute.  But when I tucked a shirt into them to try to dress them up, it made me have the most puffy belly pouch ever!  And no one wants that.  I still wear them, but with longer shirts and really as just knock-around jeans now.

Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of StyleJodie in The Bad Buy Book trousers“It sure makes me feel better to know that I’m not the only one who buys the wrong items at times!!

 I never realized these pants were that bad. I used to wear them to work (but in my defense, they might look a tidge better with heels??). Anyways when I wore them as a comparison for our floral shirt post last summer, I realized that they just were not flattering. So I gave them away. 

I think taking photos of our outfits can be so enlightening at times!! The mirror can certainly lie (or else I need some new glasses–ha ha)”

Jodie showed us her beautiful floral blouse on jeans! Jodie in The Bad Buy Book trousersThat’s much better Jodie, if I may say so.

Your host NancyThe Bad Buy Book trousersI don’t like jeans! Here in my area everybody wears jeans! Why I bought these I don’t know. They fit perfectly, they are highwaisted, they even gave me a but! But it is just not me! I felt like a total different person wearing them! I only wore them for the blog.

Next month theme is ,,Jewelery”. So it’s time to take a picture of those heavy earrings, the bracelet that leaves stains, the gifted necklace that you hate, the ring that you can”t take of unless you keep your hand in the fridge for half an hour. I think you understand what we mean.

Every month on the 15 th, we will both publish a post sharing the photos you have sent us along with a few sentences about the bad buy. Photo submissions will be due by the 1 st of each month so we have time to edit and compile all of the entries. At the end of each post we will let you know the theme for the next month’s post. Photos and the story of your ”Bad Buy” can be emailed to shelbeeontheedge@gmail.com or nancybaten@upcmail.nl. Please put”Bad Buy” in the subject line.

Unfortunately we do not have many Bad Buy looks this week to show you and we therefore hope very much that you are going to send massive pictures for next month!

Happy Easter weekend all!

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
