Black knitted dress with a pink blazer.

At first I wanted to wear this black knitted dress with a black cardigan( of course, how predictable can you be) but then I thought about red and pink. I love red and pink together and I have this beautiful bright pink blazer that you have seen here before. It has a beautiful orange lining. A black knitted dress is a garment that I always own in winter time. It’s warm, stylish and very easy to wear and to combine. You can wear them with high heels to make the look more stylish, or wear comfortable boots for a sporty look. I am not very fond of a sporty look, I only wear that when the weather is bad and I have to do my groceries. The weather here is fortunately a bit better. It has been really cold here, for Dutch standards. There were days when the temperature didn’t reach above zero. And all that snow, pfff I hate that. Those temperatures are very bad for my lungs. So I hardly get out of my house then. Well let me tell you, that is not something to get cheerful over.

What more to wear with a pink blazer and black knitted dress.

Like I said: red! I actually never wear these sandals in summer but I like them a lot more in winter or fall with tights. I added a red bracelet that I bought when I was for the first time in England, as a adult that is. I have been  there many times with my parents in my teens. I bought the bracelet at Claire’s in Canterbury! It was 15 years ago! So this bracelet always reminds me of the UK. You might think, well it’s just a bracelet from Claire’s. Nothing special. But it was the first time that Gerben and I went together England and he didn’t know if he would like it. As you may perhaps no by now, if I were healthy, I would moved years ago to England! And he loved it as much as I do. So that was a fantastic holiday, one of many more! Now we go at least twice a year.

I am also wearing a red belt and pink peacock earrings. Don’t you love the brooche! I think it’s really cute. pink blazer black knitted dress outfitred bracelet in pink blazer black knitted dressowl brooche in pink blazer black knitted dresscol dress in pink blazer black knitted dresswearing tights in pink blazer black knitted dresssandals in pink blazer black knitted dresspeacock earrings in pink blazer black knitted dresspink sandals in pink blazer black knitted dressme in pink blazer black knitted dress

    Elegance, good taste and … audacity. The whole black is basic, elegant and … easy. The jacket is wonderful, the shoes are daring and the combination of all this is perfect. I love the movement and the volume of your skirt, when walking the effect should be magnificent. Your stockings are cute.

    Staat je weer netjes hoor. Ik draag bijna nooit deze roze teint, maar het is weer eens iets anders!

    • January 31, 2017 / 7:56 pm

      Ik vind zachtroze wel heel mooi, maar ik vond ook het model en de structuur heel mooi.

    • January 31, 2017 / 7:56 pm

      Thank you, I think it s a great combo too!

    I like seeing you in colour, it really brightens up your appearance. And colour helps with the winter darkness, too (but not with the cold unfortunately…).

      Do you really think so? Hmmmm, I am afraid you are right. Ha ha. But about the weather…..It’s going to be 12 degrees this week here! Yeah!

    Pink works so well with black, it really gives it a pop of color! Such a cute outfit. I would love to have a pink blazer! I also love the patterned tights that gives the outfit a little pattern!
