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

SHEER BLOUSE AND BLACK TULLE SKIRT

A sheer blouse and black tulle skirt outfit for Ada

Because Ada gave a party for her first linkup birthday, we had to wear of course a festive outfit! And what could be more festive as a black tulle skirt? Festive, cheerful, feminine, a tulle skirt has it all.

I was actually planning on taking just one picture for Ada. But I liked the outfit so much that I decided to make more for my own blog too. First I thought of wearing red with the black tulle skirt, but I don’t like black and red together that much. And then I realized I wanted to wear a few corsages, that is festive. And the blouse with the gold hearts is too!

I wore the skirt before here and here. Even if a black tulle skirt does look a bit festive, you can wear it very well in a more casual way. I wore it often last season with a sweater and casual boots with a flat heel. The boots with gold stud bow are older. These boots are, I think, the only item I have ever bought on sale were I am happy with. I never find anything special on sale. Yesterday I saw on Instagram someone who bought a wrap blouse by Diane von Fürstenberg! Wow, unbelievable! That will never happen to me. By the way, speaking of Instagram: if you are not following me yet, please do so here!

 dark brown short cardigan in tall bootsThe story behind these tall boots.

I am really very happy with these boots. I’ll tell you why. I had last year bought these boots. A nice quality suède and elastic at the top making them sank not a millimeter. But there was a big problem with these boots. I could not walk normally on them! Because of my lung disease I cannot walk on high heels anymore(it’s to exhausting) But these are not that high and the tread was wide. I don’t know what it is but I cannot walk on these. I look like a construction worker when I walk on it. They were good for only one thing: I was featured with these boots at Everything Just So! Well, I still wanted some other over the knee boots in brown suède. I came across these and there was some kind of discount week going on and I paid €30 for these. Is that a bargain or what! They have a block heel and are easy to walk on and they don’t sack either. I am very happy with these!

How I love to style my tall boots.

I never wear boots over pants. It might look good on others, it certainly doesn’t work for me at all. I think denim and brown combine great, it gives denim a more sturdy look I think. Perhaps it reminds me of cowboys……I have nothing to do with cowboys…..don’t even like westerns or country music! I digress. I wanted to wear this long cardigan with the jeans and the boots. This amazing leopard print blouse would look good on it too because of the colors, but the cardigan made the outfit look very pale. So I decided to wear a dark brown shorter cardigan over the pale one. Because the darker brown one is a bit to wide, I closed it on my back with the last button. I added some brown and gold colored bracelets in different materials and leave earrings, I also wore a leave bracelet. And a beautiful leather wrap belt. I really love this outfit and it is perfect for this cold weather because of all the layers. I hope you like my outfit too!myself in tall bootslight brown long cardigan in tall bootsblock heels in tall bootsleopard print blouse in tall bootsbrown boots in tall bootsbrown belt in tall bootsoutfit in tall bootsbracelets in tall bootsdenim skirt in tall boots

BLOGGER IRRITATIONS & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Do you know that too….blogger irritations?

Nothing is as irritating as when there is something wrong with your blog and you cannot fix it. When I started my blog, fashionandfoodandotherstuff, I had the free WordPress version. I searched very long for a theme that I was happy with. The point is that I know exactly what I want. And that is usually not available. But eventually I found one that I was satisfied with. Not happy, just satisfied. When I started this blog, a self-hosted one, I had to search again for a theme. And again I sat for days in front of the laptop trying all these themes. And I found the perfect one! Sleek, simple and with everything on it that I wanted. For a few months I was very happy with it.

So, why the blogger irritations?

Well, because at some point someone said she could not respond by phone. I tried to sort it out myself but I couldn’t so I mailed the theme builder. Before he responds, a few days have past and he told me to wait for the next update. So that didn’t help. I want it to be fixed….NOW! Again after a while it started to really irritate me that my blog wasn’t functioning properly. Again I searched for another theme, mailed the theme builder again and before you know it, months have past and your baby is still sick. Hahaha, joking, I am not that crazy….. Last week I had enough of it, mailed the builder that I was pissed of and installed another theme. That took me half a day to put everything in order. And, of course, the builder mailed the next day to give me my data and he would check out what the problem was. So he did checked it out and he knew now what the problem was, and I had my old theme back. Not fixed, half day work for nothing. He promissed he would fix it asap. After a small week there was nothing fixed, I now send him a mail with an ultimatum for two days to solve it. Of course he did not respond, and I spend another half day to install a new theme. I wonder if you see a lot of differences and I hope you find this theme enjoyable to read. You can at least leave your comments with your phone again!!! Yeah!

So a picture of me with a very grumpy face, too much candy and a view that I can dream now. To still end this post a little cozy, two pictures with what I wore at New Years Eve and how the diner table looked like before our friends arrived. We love to spoil our friends with good food!

BLACK SKATER DRESS & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

What is a skater dress actually?

A skater dress is a dress with a tight upper body and a flared skirt. The name comes from the eighties when designers got inspired by skate clothing. Usually you see the shorter versions, but I prefer my skater dress slightly longer. I must appologize for the photos. And also for those frome next Tuesday. It froze a few degrees, and something was not set up properly with the camera. Gerben was checking it very calmly and I was dying of the cold. So then I said, quitte irritated, make the damn pictures please! Because of the poor lighting you don’t see my goosebumps!

It’s time for a new dress!

I noticed that my closet with skirts was pretty stuffed, and the one with the dresses wasn’t, so it was time to buy some dresses! Just kidding. But I havn’t bought a dress yet this season, so I shopped for dresses! Last week my girlfriend Celina and I were invited to attend a fashion show and shopping evening at the shop of a former colleague. Of course we went out for diner before! It’s now the time to buy party dresses and they showed many during the fashionshow. I bought a bodycon dress with a leather bolero. I will show you soon. First I’ll show you my skater dress. I have always worn pencil skirts and bodycon dresses, and all of a sudden I see a lot of wide skirts in my closet. But just one wider dress. This one, the print of the skater dress reminded me of this one. And I always love to wear dresses especially for the holidays. So my mind was fixed on skater dresses.  Actually, if I am honest, I think this dress isn’t working for me. I prefer the lenght a bit longer, on the knee not above. But I think the design of the dress was so nice that I choose it anyway. And I love the collar on the dress. It adds a bit more. I don’t like a round neck and a V-neck is so hard to find. I never understood that why it is so hard to find a good V-neck dress, many women want a V-neck.

How to style a skater dress?

Well…not! Haha, you know I am a plain Jane. I like things simple. Just some leather boots with a small heel and some bracelets in the colore of the dress. But when I want to style it more casual then I would wear it with the boots that I refered to and wear it with a grog knitted cardigan. And add a big brooche on the cardigan.

How would you style a skater dress?
