HOW TO WEAR WHITE TON SUR TON

Today I show you how to wear white.

To not make a style blunder, the so called faux pas, you shouldn’t wear white( or a shade of) after it gets below ten degrees or something like that. But these days you can’t make a style blunder anymore because everything goes. It might not be convenient to wear white when it rains and everything is wet and muddy, and you have to bring your kids from and to school by bike, walking the dog and run some errands. But otherwise it is a good color to wear.

How I came to wear white.

I almost never wear white. I own one white summer dress and I only wear it when it’s really hot outside. And I bought this crochet dress a while ago, but it’s not really white, a bit more off-white. This outfit is also a bit off-white. So, how did I came to wear white? It began with the joggers. I do not wear pants that often and when I do it has to fit perfectly and I don’t want to”feel” them. When you wear dresses and skirts all the time you get used to the fact that you hardly ever ”feel” your clothes. Or it has to fit so tight that you can barely breath, but I feel that often enough, I don’t need my clothes doing that for me. Lol. So, when I tried these pants I thought: Oh yes, they are so soft! Almost all the pants I have are a bit boyish, boyfriend jeans, badass pants and joggers. Here is another jogger outfit. But back to my new joggers. This one I actually have to wear a bit mor baggy then I did on the pictures. And next time I wear them, I wont wear a longer blouse on them. I think only the sweater is better but I thought the sweater would be a bit to short, but it wasn’t.[bctt tweet=”Would you wear white ton sur ton?” username=”Nancys Fashion Style”]

I almost never wear more then two colors in one outfit and for this one I thought it would be nice to wear ton sur ton, all in one color. I love cable knit sweaters. In last weeks post I told you I needed some warm sweaters because I didn’t have any. I can hear you all say now: see that you have sweaters! Yeah yeah, just one! I wear a large white bracelet and my dreamcatcher earrings. So, did I wear white the right way?

STYLE MIX & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Fancy Friday linkup on Pinterest!

I never immersed myself in Pinterest until Sunday after breakfast I didn’t feel like doing something yet, the mails were all answered, so I thought I give it a shot. And it turned out to be quite fun.( you of course do know this already) I now made a board were I feature the Fancy Friday most viewed and when Fancy Friday reach 100 linkups I make a board to feature my favorite! Last week there was one linkup more! Come on girls, you can do better! Spread the word!

Different styles in one outfit.

I’m not the type that wears a lot of prints or is creative with clothes, but I do always like to mix styles. Think pencilskirt/bikerjacket for instance. The off shoulder(that isn’t off shoulder on me, it snapped back the hole time) top is a bit beach look but could also be Boho. This is my first off shoulder top….and the last. I bought it because I love the color and the sleeves but off shoulder does not look good on me, I will wear this one as a mot off shoulder one! Ideal is that it has three-quarter sleeves. I have nothing with long sleeves. The boots are real seventies, block heel suède and beige. I could wear my front button skirt with the top and boots but I like this one better. It’s a denim skirt with a beautiful deepblue color. I have many high/low skirts, blouses and dresses. I love them, I think they are jaunty, cheerful and feminine. This skirt is pretty long in the back and has a nice bow!

MILITARY LOOK WITH JOGGERS

Today I mix the Military look with joggers!

I already said here were the love for ruffles came from, but this item is also a bit from the same period. The eighties! Only back then we bought these Military  jackets in dump stores. These were stores where they sold clothing and items from the army. We all wore these green trenchcoats and short army green jackets. Well apparently I’ve not changed that much because I still like a Military look. Bur now I’ve mixed it with joggers.

Shopping in stores that you normally pass.

Do you recognize this, that you never go to a particular store because you think they have nothing nice there, and then suddenly you walk pass the store and there it is… a perfect jacket. So you take a look at it, in the store, yes very nice but you walk on because you never buy in that store! Then you go on a holiday and when you get back the item is still dangling in the back of your head. Okay, you look at it on the internet and again and again, and then you decide  to subscribe to the newsletter, who knows there are still more nice items and you don’t want to miss that do you? So a few days later, just when you decided to buy the jacket, you get a mail that they have a family night in your village were they give you a 30% discount on everything and you may reserve. Well, you know it by now: I bought the jacket! But sometimes you have that, that you never shop in a particular store and then suddenly you see something that you like very much. So you see again that you should never juge a book by it’s cover!(wink)

Styling joggers.

I’ve shown these joggers before here. As it is obvious to wear this jacket on jeans or a leather leggings, I thought it would be nice to style it in a more unusual way. And then I thought of the joggers. Because the jacket and the joggers are dark, I thought that adding a bit of color would be the right thing to do. But I wanted to show you a bright color and a soft tone. I find the outfit with the brighter red top most succesful. Because the jacket is a bit edgy I added some pearls for the contrast. On the pink top outfit I wear a brooche with blue tones and a necklace that I wear as a bracelet because the colors matched so well. My hairdresses had also been creative! Love it!

Now I am curious, wich outfit do you like better?

Joggers: here

Ankle boots: older, but simular here

Have a fab day!

 

BELL SLEEVES & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Time for Fancy Friday linkup and wearing bell sleeves!

Because of the tip that Shelbee gave me last week, there were a lot more linkups then normal! We now had 78! Let’s shoot to 100! That’s my goal. Thank you all for linking up, I love it!

Bell sleeves and striped skirt.

This is the first bell sleeve top I bought. I loved them for a longer time but most are long-sleeved and I know that is not ideal. I see myself cooking diner and hanging with my sleeve in the gravy. No thanks. So this is the perfect one for me. I bought this skirt in spring in England and thought it would be more of an autumn skirt. Because of the colors. So now I can finally wear it with boots. I’m still looking for the perfect leopard print ankle boots. Yesterday I was browsing on the net and thought I had found the perfect ones, and then I found out that they didn’t send to the Netherlands! Oh bummer! The search continues. I did stumbled on this skirt. At first I thought, wow I like, but then I saw the stripes on the side. I didn’t like it, on the other hand it is also something more trendy and different. I’m going to think about it. If you find the perfect leopard print ankle boot, please let me know! Haha, and I am looking for guestbloggers who want to talk about their style with a picture that comes closest to their personality. Now it’s time for you to shine!

Skirt: bought it in May at Dorothy Perkins, this is another great striped one here

Bell sleeve top:here

Boots: old, but don’t you just love these here

Let’s start with the Fancy Friday linkup!
