How to style  badass military pants.

Yes, even after your 40th ….uh….even 50th(oops) you can still wear badass military pants. At least I think so. I actually always wear what I like without thinking about my age. But suddenly when I write this down, that you can easy wear something after a certain age, I think: wow, I ‘m old. Ha ha, I need a drink now, will be back later……no just kidding(about the drink that is). Look, a mini skirt I really do not wear anymore. Sometimes I will try it and I take a look in the mirror and shake my head…no not for me anymore. But cool pants are different. I just trust myself enough to see if something is age appropiate. But what if I am wrong? Mmm, I have quite enough fashion sence to notice that don’t I? Well, I hope so. This is a simular pair of pants that I wore when I was about 19. Only it was a black one and had no buckles but was quite tight at the calves and wider above. And it was a bit shiny. Can you picture it? Yes I know, the pants looked a bit”wrong” but it was in the punk period. I adored the pants, thought they were so cool. When I saw this pants I had to have them. They look so simular! But what looked good twenty……oh my….thirty years ago, doesn’t have to look good now. I love them anyway.

How to style a badass military pants!

Oh, there are so many ways you can style these pants. After we took these pictures I wore the pants in a few other ways. With a long tunic and with a black blazer. I will show you in a few weeks. I love all the looks. The tee with the rinestone decoration I had bought in September but not yet worn, and now it is to cold for short sleeves. I thought wearing it like this is a fun way! It’s also to cold now to wear peeptoes and after these pictures were taken I saw on Nicole s blog how she wore socks in sandals and I thought that was so cool. I am going to copy that! ……After I bought some new socks( instead of worn faded ones)…..

    Ik vind het echt een tof kleurtje en goed te combineren. Dank voor de inspiratie. Ik ben vaak van de spijkerbroeken en zwarte kleuren.

    • November 9, 2016 / 10:50 pm

      Ik ben ook dol op zwart moet ik zeggen hoor! Maar bij deze kleur past eigenlijk alles.

    You are definitely not too old for these bad ass (sorry had to say it!) military pants! I love them on you! I really can’t decide which way I like them best, maybe with the black top and booties. But, the first look is really cute on you, too!


    • November 10, 2016 / 6:55 pm

      Thank you so much! I also worn them with a sheer black tunic which was also very nice.

    You look cool, Nancy! Me too keep on wearing what I like and what makes me feel good! ( Even when people say that I look too much ladylike in my case )
    I love your short-sleeved top matched to the feminine shirt…
    Have a nice weekend!

    • November 11, 2016 / 8:51 am

      Thank you Dan! I’m glad to hear you also wear what you like. Guess who was most viewed last week?

  12. November 15, 2016 / 4:08 am

    These are seriously BAD. ASS. In a very good way.

    I love it! When we’re 50 we’ve earned our bad-assness. Yep. That’s a word I just made up.

    Wear whatever the heck you feel like as long it makes you feel good.

    Just for the record…you look GREAT!


    • November 15, 2016 / 2:38 pm

      Thank you! Thats good to hear! I now have to find a translation for bad assness!!! Hahaha,

  13. November 16, 2016 / 3:51 am
