Me! Fashion and personal style

Nancy, a fashionista at heart

On my Me page I tell you a bit about me and my blog. I am a 50+ Dutch personal style blogger with a passion for fashion. On my blog I like to write about, and show my personal style and sometimes a peak in my life. I love everything that has to do with clothing, shoes and accessories. As a little child I knew exactly what shoes I wanted and which dresses I loved to wear!

How my style evolved

During puberty I wore a lot of black as it was the punk period. However, I loved to wear pencil skirts too. So I guess it was a bit of a mix of punk and classic style. I always wore solids, never a print. There was a time that I had my clothes made especially for me. That was fantastic, I could totally be creative in my own style.

I never been a lover of jeans and hardly ever wore or wear it. Since I started blogging prints and color came slowly into my closets. But I still love to wear black and my pencil skirts!

I have worked several years in fashion and I did it with so much pleasure. I loved to advice women on what to wear . And perhaps even more important, what not to wear. It gave a amazing feeling when a uncertain woman left the shop with clothing that made her feel special. And that is what clothing and your outfits should do for you. Make you feel special. Life is to short to dress in a way that doesn’t make you feel fantastic!

Clothing should give you self confidence and nothing otherwise. Whatever your style is. You don’t have to be trendy, just wear what you want and makes you feel good. That is your style!

What ‘s going on Nancy’s Fashion Style

I post twice a week, on Tuesday and Friday. Every Friday I host the Fancy Friday linkup party. Which is a great way to meet other bloggers and to show yourself. You can join too, even if you are not a blogger! Every 15th of the month Shelbee and I host The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book. Every last Wednesday I join six of my blogger friends in Match Made in Seven, and every first Monday of the month I join in with Stylish Monday! I love to do series with other bloggers. It makes you creative with the clothing you have. Often I am styling my outfits in a total different way then I would normally do, because there is a theme with a series. That’s fun! That’s what clothing and style is about!

So there is a lot going on my blog and I hope you enjoy reading it!

In my life

But I also want to take you with me in things that happen in my life, and that includes my lung disease. I have a hereditary lung disease, and that is why I don’t work anymore. And that is also why I started my blog. I am visiting doctors to get on the transplantlist. It’s not easy and as the years go by, I am getting weaker. But I do everything I can to take good care of myself. I work out a lot, I eat healthy. But most important is to enjoy life to the fullest! And blogging is a part of that! You can read all about my disease here!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Not only about my disease, but if you want do a series together. Or perhaps you want some advice, you can ask me anything!
