SPECIAL OCCASION DRESS CASUAL STYLE & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Wearing a special occasion dress casual style

Have you got a lot of special occasions? Events where you can wear a special occasion dress? Not me! So when I was approached by JJ’s House to write a post about their dresses I had to think about it. Because they sell wedding and special occasion dresses. I never wear a special occasion dress, and it doesn’t feel good to appear on my blog in something I would never wear in real life. What you see is what you get, with me! But…., yeah you saw that one coming, I checked their site and saw that they also had Fashion dresses. And I fell in love with this one immediatly, I showed you also on the wishlist. When I was still working, I worked in a women’s fashion store where we sold a lot of elegant dresses, we always showed how to wear a dress for a party and how to wear it in a casual way. That made a lot of women buy a dress, because otherwise they saw it as a one wear dress. I want to show you today this dress in an elegant and in a casual way!

*This is a sponsored post, but I only show what I like, words and opinions are my own!

Special occasion dress two ways

The first look is the special occasion look. I am wearing my favorite heels, the leopard print sandals. And a silk grey jacket. Perfect for a special event. Simple accesories and check the clutch! Fabulous!special occasion dressesspecial occasion dressesspecial occasion dresses

For the second look I changed the sandals in over the knee boots in dark brown and a denim jacket. A big brown bag and some statement accesories. This is how I love to wear this fantastic dress, I would also love to wear it with a long cardigan and sneakers(although I hardly wear sneakers, but you never know!)special occasion dressesspecial occasion dressesspecial occasion dressesspecial occasion dresses

I would like to emphasize what a fantasic company JJ’s House is. And this has nothing to do with the fact they gifted me the dress and the clutch. Firstly, they advised me to take a smaller size, they found that the size I ordered was to big. The dress came into a beautiful printed box in a protective bag. The size is perfect! The quality is amazing and I am so in love with that little bag! I would really advise you, especially if you need a dress for a special occasion, to check this site.

WEDNESDAY WISHLIST: TUNIC TOPS WITH DRESSLILY

Today’s wishlist is about tunic tops

Last week I wore my leather leggings again, and what to wear better on leather leggings then tunic tops. I picked some of my favorites from Dresslily.tunic top

1.Floral top

2.Graphic blouse

tunic tops

3.Draped top

As you can see I am getting quite colorful. But whenever I write wishlists, I always have to be careful not to choose only black items. Lol. I am wearing much more color then I ever did, but I tend to choose black easely. Although I love the colors I’ve picked!

 

1.Striped tunic

2.Chrochet blouse

3.Floral lace shirt

I love a high low hem line, I can see myself wearing the striped tunic on a denim legging and a leather jacket! I like that one a lot! Which one is your favorite?

GREY VEST ON OCHRE PENCIL SKIRT

Wearing a vest for the first time

I have never worn a long vest. I actually owned a short vest once! The longer ones make me feel like this. The nice thing about a collaboration is that you can choose something, and sometimes I like to choose something to try. To see if it works for me. Because if you buy it and you find out you actually don’t like to wear it, it ends up in The Bad Buy Book! That is good for Shelbee and me, but it still is a shame! Lol.

*This is a sponsored post, but I don’t write about, and show items I don’t like!

A vest on a pencil skirt

I wear this pencil skirt almost always with brown and sometimes blue. I always thought it was a bit of a difficult color. But lately I saw a lot of black and white with ochre and I was inspired to try it too. I have also seen a lot of very nice sweaters in this color, but when I wear ochre in my face I look very sick. So let’s not do so! But it is a beautiful Fall color. I also got to choose a top and you know I love wraped stuff. Wrap skirt, wrap dress, wrap top, wrap with lots of guacamole! Lol. So I choose a basic black wrap top. I am wearing the grey boots with it because the vest is not black, it’s dark grey. The grey boots are somewhat softer with this outfit. Of course I’ve adapted the colors of the accesories. And check out this lovely necklace! I have it for years now, and it’s still one of my favorites.vestvestvestvestvestvestvestvest

HOW TO WEAR LEATHER LEGGINGS IN FALL & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Leather leggings weather!

Yes, at last I can wear my leather legging again! Faux leather legging is what I actually mean. In the summer it is way to hot to wear these, but now that it is colder I can finally take them out of the closet. This legging is so very nice to wear, the waist is pretty high so you don’t have to pull it up all the time. And it is a very stretchy one, and very stylish….at least I think so. Leather leggings are so versatile. You can wear them with a long cool sweater, with a tunic and you can even wear a dress on it. It has something ,,edgyness,, yet it is also a very feminine item. That is to say, when you wear it with heels. I never actually wear the leather leggings with flat boots. I’m not a biker. Gerben is! ( he does wear his leather,,legging”(read pants of course)with flat boots). But that’s a totally different look!

You have seen this before!

The very very observant reader might think: where did I see that striped thing before? Right! Here! But the tee was a bit to short, and as a 50+ woman walking around with a naked belly is to much Little Britain for me. So I cut the sleeves et voila! I wear blue earrings and my blue sandals, which really were my favorite last season. My dragonfly broche has a little bit blue in it and I showed my blue leather blazer before here.leather leggingsleather leggingsleather leggingsleather leggingsleather leggingsleather leggingsleather leggings

Time for sweater dresses!

It’s getting colder here and so it’s time to choose a warm sweater dress from Dresslily. Last week in the UK we had such a fantastic weather, sunny blue skies, and now back in the Netherlands I think it is so very cold. And I hate to be cold!

So time to check out some fabulous sweater dresses.

1. Cable knit dress

2.Knitted bodycon dress

And a few more sweater dresses that I really like!

1.Pleated knitted dress

Do you like to wear sweater dresses when it is getting colder? Perhaps I don’t even like to wear them anymore, you know, hot flashes and all!

And have you already picked a Bad Buy Jacket for the October series? Please do, we really would love to continue these series, but ladies, we need your help with it! Come on: participate!

JEANS AND TOP BLOUSE, SIMPLY STYLISH

I am wearing jeans and a top blouse!

I am back from a little break to the UK. I havn’t read any of your blogs. I know, but I will catch up this week and wanted to thank you all for your comments and linkups last Friday!

Now you might think: yeah, what is special about that? Well, nothing! It’s just what it is, a jeans and a top blouse. For me that is simple. I hardly ever wear trousers, almost never jeans. And I don’t like blouses to much. What I do like are culottes. And this is a denim culotte!

* This is a sponsored post but all opinions and words are of myself.

And I like black! And this is a black top blouse. Sometimes you don’t want to stand out to much about how you are dressed. Only sometimes! And what is easier than wearing a jeans and a blouse. ( a legging and a sweater, but you will never see me wearing that!) But I find a regular jeans and blouse very boring, so I was looking for a simple outfit but still a bit stylish. I really can’t imagine anymore that I hated culottes in the beginning. Now they are my favorite in trousers! I also have this one here and here.

Add a little green

This is a perfect outfit for September, when it’s not that warm anymore and you don’t want to wear sweaters already. I hate to wear socks so I always wear my sandals and peeptoes for as long as possible. I added a bit of green into the outfit. Green earrings, my beaded necklaces from Brighton and these gorgeous green sandals! I love these espadrilles, what a fabulous color! But when it’s getting colder I want to try the culottes with boots. I don’t think I have ever worn culottes with boots. And I don’t mean ankle boots but tall ones. have you ever worn culottes with boots? Let me know how you feel about that!
