I’am wearing burgundy, pink & ruffles today.

But first what about the weather! Here in the Netherlands this weekend it is 25 degrees! Can you believe it! Incredible, and a clear blue sky, not a cloud to be seen. Apart from the fact that I love the sun, I’m quite a chivery person, it’s also perfect weather for my lungs. The dry air is really very nice, I don’t need to cough so much. So I feel fitter and less stressed. I hope the weather stays this way for a long time, then infections stay away for a while! By the way, what do you think about this jacket? It stays in my head but I don’t know wich color I prefer. And I was looking for new boots, I want leopard print ankle boots but I know exactly what I want so they probably don’t exist, and I ended up on the H&M site . They have very nice boots and shoes, these are fantastic and I also love these. But well, let’s talk about the outfit!

Burgundy ruffle blouse and vintage pink skirt.


As you all know by now burgundy, or bordeaux, is your color this fall. Many of you have already shown a great outfit in this color. Today I will show wich item I perchased in this color. I was actually looking for a blouse with ruffles. In the early eighties I was a big fan of these kind of blouses thanks to Prince and Adam & the Ants. I found this blouse and wanted to order it in black when I saw this color. I knew right away how I wanted to wear the blouse! On a pink skirt. I have said it before, I love the combination of red/pink and blue/green, in all color variants. This skirt is more,, vintage pink” and I like the texture of it. It has got pleats but it’s kind of a knitted skirt. I combined it with gray, wich I seem to be wearing a lot these days! Gray ankle boots and a gray fringe suède bag.

Wanted: Guest bloggers!

    I think the pink & burgundy go so well together. And adding in the grey as your neutral really grounds it so well!!
    Absolutely lovely Nancy!

      Thank you Jodie, I’m pretty pleased with it myself!

    I remember the very first time I saw a combination of pink with grey, and thinking to myself that it’s the most unusual pairing ever but that it worked 🙂 and this time, seeing it on you, Nancy, affirms that opinion. Your outfit looks very lush and romantic and feminine without being heavy or girlish, and that’s a gorgeous thing to achieve 🙂

      Thank you so much Sheela, I’m not a girlish girl, so I’m glad you agree it’s not girlish!

    I love these colors, I love ruffles, I love this outfit! You look great in it.

      Ha ha, I love your comment! 🙂 🙂

    That’s such a beautiful color combo, Nancy! Wonderful outfit!

    And I also love the jacket you linked to! My initial thought was that I like the black one a bit better, but I really like the other color, too. Plus, you already own a lot of black, right? Oh, I don’t know. Maybe you should get both! 😉

    • September 28, 2016 / 8:44 am

      Haha, No it is dark Blue! And I bought the blue one! The Green was a bit to light and I already have a lot of Green these days! Thank you for thinking with me!

    Both the material of the top and the skirt flow beautifully in this look – and the combination of colours is surprisingly pretty! The burgundy blouse is my fave, such a great piece to have in your wardrobe 🙂


    • September 28, 2016 / 3:26 pm

      Yes it is! Thank you!

  8. September 28, 2016 / 3:29 pm

    Both colors look beautiful together! Your gray boots also look fab!

    • September 28, 2016 / 3:52 pm

      Thanks! 🙂 🙂

    I love this outfit Nancy! The colour combination is stunning and the ruffled blouse looks great with the midi skirt. I didn’t realise H&M had such nice footwear…I love the lace up block heels you’ve linked to!

    That is easy! I LOVE it, I adore the colors and the sweep of the skirt and the cascading ruffles of the blouse, and those boots! Love them, they make fall worthwhile.
    I am glad the climate is god for you and your lungs, wishing you good health, you have got the glamour down!

    Nancy, purple is one of my faves and this is gorgeous! I love the ruffles and the swing of the skirt. The boots and bag are the perfect color accessories. Beautiful outfit! I also love your pics! You look like you are having so much fun. Thanks for sharing. – Amy
