HOUNDSTOOTH CULOTTE

Houndstooth or Pied-de-poule culotte?

But first I want to thank everyone for the sweet comments on last Friday’s post. It’s incredibly nice to have such a group of readers! Thank you!

I’ve always called this print Pied-de-poule, but it is originally from the Scottish Lowlands so I will call it from now on houndstooth. I’ve always liked this print very much. I can recall various garments with houndstooth print from long ago. I can also remember my grandmother wore it before when she was going to a party in the 70 s. It has something sophisticated, classy, movie stars, 50-60 ish. Alexander Mcqueen has created a beautiful collection with this print in 2009.

My houndstooth culotte!

I have told you several times that I really like the culotte, I have also bought one last year. But I could not get used to it, well I have to say quite honestly that the fit was not good either. But when I saw this houndstooth culotte I knew I had to have. I put it on my wishlist and waited a week to make sure I really wanted it and then bought it! Andrea knew I was going to buy it didn’t you! Lol. I personally think the houndstooth is best combined with black and a touch of red, but cobalt blue is also very pretty with it. And a sleeveless turtleneck with pumps would look very classy too. I wear a bow blouse on it and simple black ankle boots. This culotte is quite high in the waist. Last Sunday we went out for diner with friends(a present for my birthday, sweet huh!)and I didn’t wear the culotte then. I think I would have needed double corrective underwear! That’s with such high waisted pants, you have to hold in your belly!

STRIPED OFF SHOULDER DRESS & LINKUP

It is Fancy Friday, that means it’s time to linkup.

Finally the sun will be shining here this weekend(only this weekend) and we get some real summer temperatures! So time to fill the pool, bring out the BBQ and put the Rosé in the fridge! And therefore time for a summer outfit.

[bctt tweet=”The summertrend: blue&white, stripes, off shoulder, wedges. All together.” username=”Nancys Fashion Style”]

Off shoulder dresses or tops normally don’t look that good on me. A boat neck either. I don’t know why not. But this dress I find actually quite nice. Perhaps it is because the dashes distract. I think I only tried plane tops and dresses. And can you believe it cost me only €9,99. I will put a link under the post but I am not sure it is still in stock, so please forgive me if it’s not. I love wedges. They are feminine, summery and they are easy to walk on, also not insignificant. Although I really tend to buy shoes that are beautiful and don’t care if I can walk on them real good! Bad bad, I know. Have a great and summery weekend!

Dress: I think mine is sold out, but you can find great sale items here

Wedges: old, but nice ones here

The fine lines of the dress are actually terrible for the picture! Sorry…

outfit with transparent bomber nancy style

My feminine version of the spring trend, the transparent bomber Nancy style!

I am going to show you my favorite, the transparent bomber. The bomber is a tough thin jacket, usually in black or olive green with an orange lining. Originally it’s a flight jacket and the orange lining was to stand out in the event of an emergency landing. The bomber was also very popular in the nineties among ravers. Because I have nothing with ravers and I find this version a bit too masculine, I went looking for a feminine version!

My interpretation of the Bomber.

I think this transparent bomber is the perfect feminine interpretation of this trend. And also with a floral print! I’ve seen a bomber with a floral print before, but not a transparent one. I like it that it is a bit more unusual. Because I ‘m going to wear the bomber on jeans anyway, I thought it would be fun to style it in a not so obvious way. A somewhat neater way. For example, if you would go to a party. This jacket is just something different than a blazer or a bolero. I’m wearing the bomber on a little black dress with pearls. I love to mix feminine with a cool touch.You have seen the clutch before, but the slingbacks have the same print, I know I know, today we don’t match our shoes with bags, but I simply love it!

khaki& grey outfit Fancy Friday

Today the Fancy Friday link-up party is on. Read at the bottom of this post how you can join me.

I do not know how the weather is with you, but I had lunch outside with Cien yesterday and today we have winter temperatures! I have to pull a sweater from the closet. Come on, let the spring temperatures continue please! So, it’s not going to be a spring outfit today, but pants and ankle boots in khaki&grey. Actually it is not khaki but olive, but I pretend it’s khaki( I like that better).

Khaki&grey sounds a bit dull, but I like this combination. The tunic with print makes it less boring and the jacket with a big collar and striking belt gives the outfit a vibrant look. They are all different materials. I usually dress pretty monotonous( I love a simple style) I like to wear different materials together. The pants are cotton, a satin tunic and a linen jacket, suede boots and a leather bracelet.

flare ankle jeans

As I said last Friday, I bought a flare ankle jeans, another denim item to add to the collection. Well it is certainly not ripped, destressed or what kind of thorned jeans whatsoever! And I had luck with this one, because when I got it I saw that he was marked down for half. When I ordered the jeans it was not yet. Yeah! A bargain. I saw the flare ankle jeans before and I was already in doubt whether I would by one. I actually don’t like flared jeans, I think it does nothing good for my figure. That will come out of the time I was eight kilos lighter and had very thin legs. I think that a flared accentuates thin legs in a non- flattering way. But I do like pants that show some ankle. I find that, especially if it’s worn with a heel, very feminine.

And now about the outfit of the day. I’m all in h&m today. I think this is my cheapest outfit ever, and I love it. How is that possible! Lol! I’ve styled these flare ankle jeans with simple items, I think that compliments the jeans. A top with a lace v-neck, a v-neckline makes your neck looks more beautiful. The sandals are wearing very good beyond expectations. A bracelet with great dramatic charms and a ring in the same style. And a thin black strap with a small gold buckle.[bctt tweet=”What do you think of the flare ankle jeans?” username=”Nancys Fashion Style”] Have a Sunny Wednesday!flare ankle jeans flare ankle jeans flare ankle jeans flare ankle jeans flare ankle jeans flare ankle jeans
