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

BLUE PLEATED SKIRT & SAGE COLD SHOULDER JUMPER & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Yet again another (blue) pleated skirt.

Can’t help it. I love a pleated skirt. I was in doubt about a pink one, but I ultimately chose this blue pleated skirt. Very likely that I still purchase another one later in the season. Actually, I already have seen a pretty one! Zara has a midseason sale going on and I saw this one. What do you think, shall I buy this one? Or is it to shiny? Please let me know. A pleated skirt is just so beautiful. Feminine, dressy, and you can make all kinds of styles with it. From sporty to elegant.

My blue pleated skirt.

I have often said it, I like blue and green together a lot. For this skirt I wanted a green jersey, so that I could already wear the skirt now. I have enough green tops but it is way to cold to wear tops now. This sweater has the perfect color. Sage! Also a nice name for a color. The perfect color but not the perfect look! I am not really a cold shoulder fan and not at all a torn, ripped, distressed fan! But I love the color to much, so I have to get used to it. And I am no longer twenty anymore, should I still wear these kind off sweaters? But Gerben said it looked good. So if you think it’s too young, then I will blaim him! Let me know your opinion, I can handle it….on a good day.golden earrings and blue pleated skirtfashion blue pleated skirtsage and blue pleated skirtBoohoo.com and blue pleated skirtblue pleated skirtoutfit with blue pleated skirtgrey boots and blue pleated skirtcold shoulder and blue pleated skirt

my outfit in pleated skirt with knitted sweater

I want to wear my pleated skirt every day!

Well, not really though. And I know you have seen this skirt before here and here. And I love it styled like today the best! With the pink details, gray and pink compliment each other so well. I was just browsing the internet to see whether the pleated skirt trend continues into Spring. I actually regret that I have not bought a metallic pleated skirt this season, and now it feels like to late. But if they are still trendy next season, I will buy another one. In a spring color or a beautiful print. Vogue and Elle don’t mention the pleated skirt at all and so don’t the leading designers but…….drum roll……check this one! New collection! I can totally see myself wearing this one with a red top! Super cool!

Back to today’s pleated skirt.

I love this sweater. I find the color beautiful, you have to watch out that you don’t wear a tint of gray that makes your skin looks the same color! This is a warmer shade of gray. This sweater is a bit crotched and a bit knitted, love the casual look of it. I never wear two shades of gray, but I think it works in this outfit pretty nice, also because I added a bit of pink in it. A very bright color could also work perfectly. Now that I have discovered that wearing socks in open shoes looks nice(in my eyes), I wear it very often. The pink strap has a cute bow detail and the kitschy charm bracelet looks lovely with this outfit. The suède bag with fringe and studs is old but remains trendy!

I wear the scarf and the glooves just for the pictures because they are pink and gray. The scarf I knitted last year, I wanted to find out whether I liked to do that. I never wear it, it isn’t that nice. But to knit was quite relaxing, of course I only know one stitch, the most simple one! But for someone who can relax bad, it is quite fun to do. For a while, I get bored real quickly.pink and gray scarf in pleated skirtpink peeptoes in pleated skirtgray bag in pleated skirtpink bracelet in pleated skirtpink belt in pleated skirtbow belt in pleated skirtgray pleated skirtpink peeptoes in pleated skirtknit wear in pleated skirtknitted sweater in pleated skirt

PLEATED SKIRT FALL VERSION

Today I’m wearing my pleated skirt Fall version!

The trend of 2016 is the pleated skirt. When I first wore this skirt I told you how I was inspired to buy a pleated skirt. I actually havn’t worn it that much yet because it’s a fairly heavy skirt and quite warm. But now it’s time to get it out of the closet and wear it a lot. The pleated skirt is seen in every collection in every color and even with prints. When I was in the UK a few weeks ago, I saw this one but didn’t buy it. Now I regret it, it’s almost sold out. And they are so versatile, wear it with a high heeled shoe and it’s dressed. Wearing boots with heels or ankle boots, it becomes more casual and when you wear a flat boot it gives the look a bit of an edge. The pleated skirt is a great garment.

Beauty is in the simplicity….

That’s what the sweater says. I am not a person that has much with spells and texts who are to be called profound. It is that it’s in French, it sounds good, otherwise I wouldn’t have bought it. Beauty is in the simplicity, yeah we all know that. We all know that we should enjoy the little things , that we have to realize what we have, that we should be grateful etc. etc. …most people are going to do that when life is no longer that obvious…. and there is nothing wrong with that. People should live there lives the best they can, the way they want to. I think the important thing is satisfaction! When you’re not satisfied, you can’t enjoy simple things. And probably also not simple things for that matter. I am glad I am a happy person. But well… the text actually refers to my taste in style. I like my outfits without to much prints, without to much accesories, without to much of anything. And is there anything wrong with that? No, I am satisfied with it! What else do you want?

What I wear on my pleated skirt?

I would love to wear the skirt with  a nice thick sweater with very long sleeves and a large col. But not just yet, we’ll do that in Winter! I’m wearing a thin sweater, a coated bikerjacket and my favorite lace-up boots that I bought four years ago because they were so beautiful just to look at…..and that’s exactly what I ve been doing ……looking at them. The heel was to high, but I brought them to the shoemaker( is that a correct word? It sounds strange) and he has taken a small piece of the heel and they are perfect now! I’m so happy with it!

PLEATED SKIRT

Thank you all for linking up last week! I am now on 35 and I want 50 by the end of August! Guess why..

I had this skirt hanging in the closet for a while now but finally I can show you my pleated skirt. What took so long? I needed the right shoes with it! Logical right…

[bctt tweet=”The search for the right shoes with a pleated skirt!” username=”Nancys Fashion Style”]

I actually wanted a pleated skirt because I was inspired by Izabela of My Daily Wear. Take a look at her blog to see what I mean! I never thought I would wear one, because I didn’t think they would look good on me, but I love it! A pleated skirt is very feminine and swings around your legs. But then the shoes, of course I didn’t own a pair that really fitted with the skirt, so I had to search for it. It had to be shoes I could easy walk with(walking on a pair of heels when you havn’t got much air is not a good idea, so I leave the heels for sitting party’s). And they had to be white and pastel colored. And I found them, for a good price!

And then what do you wear on a pleated skirt?

I love a minimalistic look the most. In interior and outfits. So I bought three very simple T-shirts with this skirt. This one is very light orange which comes back again in the shoes, and I have a soft pink and white one. But I also have a cute print top in light brown and shades of gray and light brown peeptoe boots with fringes. I ‘m going to try that! But I can also see it with an oversized sweater and ankle boots! Oh, you can style it in so many ways! I’ll show you when I tried it.

I wish you all a great day!
