A blouse with shoulder pads…how do you feel about that?

I was actually happily surprised when I was wearing this blouse. I did not notice the shoulder pads when I ordered this one. I mean, when I see a trend for the second time mostly it doesn’t make me happy. Click here for some collections with shoulder pads. But it is elegant, stylish and gives the blouse a little more swoomph! But I think that if you’re wider in the shoulders, you don’t want them in your closet. Just like I don’t want straight trousers because I have no buttocks and thin legs. I look like an idiot whenever I try those trousers.

What about green and beige?

Beige is normally a color that I should not wear on the upper half. But this blouse with shoulder pads comes only in this color, I had to make a sacrifice. I loved it to much! The blouse has brackets on the front, just like a corset. And what about the trousers. I said it before, I don’t like trousers that much but with this one I just felt for the color. I’m not quite happy with the design of the trousers because it is a bit wider. And it also has got a high waist with folds, so it looks like you have eaten everything on the menu at the sushi restaurant.(which I could!) But it’s the color… A beautiful shade of green with a woven leaf print. I look like a wood, a wood in fall! Haha, I even matched my earrings!blouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsBlouse: here

    I think this is such a wonderful outfit Nancy!! I do try to stay away from certain colors, but sometimes the other details drag me in!! And this really looks great on you!

    • October 13, 2017 / 9:08 am

      Thanks Jodie! Yes, sometimes we cant resistentie, and I think it s actually not that bad. Better then offwhite!

  2. October 13, 2017 / 12:40 am

    I adore this outfit and would wear it exactly the way you have it. That top is so fun and I don’t mind the return of the shoulder pads because I have very narrow shoulders. I don’t really want to see the humongous ones that were popular in the 80s though! Ha Ha. The pants are crazy cute!!! And your booties pull it all together! Perfection all around!
    Happy Weekend!

    • October 13, 2017 / 9:09 am

      Thank you very much

  3. October 13, 2017 / 12:45 am

    Such a fun and spunky outfit!!! I love it and you look fabulous Nancy!!

    • October 13, 2017 / 9:09 am

      Thanks Andrea

  4. October 13, 2017 / 1:12 am

    I think that the colors are fine and I like the retro look of the outfit. Your full and wild hair adds a fun detail to the look that I like as well. Thank you for sharing this great styling idea and for the link up.


    • October 13, 2017 / 9:10 am

      We have the same Hair! Although I like yours better!

  5. October 13, 2017 / 1:53 am

    This reminds me of the 80’s – my decade!!! I love it, such a flattering silhouette and you have the perfect figure to wear it. I love it Nancy!

    • October 13, 2017 / 9:10 am

      Thanks Kellyann, my decade too!

  6. October 13, 2017 / 5:49 am

    I really like this outfit! The colors are wonderful! And the wider pants balance out the tighter top! Great booties, too!

    Thanks for the link up & have a wonderful weekend!

    • October 13, 2017 / 9:11 am

      Thanks Andrea, and enjoy your weekend too!

  7. October 13, 2017 / 7:43 am

    A really original look. The blouse is beautiful and the trousers are very special, for the design and for the stamping. A nice mix of classicism and informality. And that hairstyle? Absolutely wonderfull!

    • October 13, 2017 / 9:11 am

      Thanks a lot Josep Maria! Always appreciate your lovely comments!

  8. October 13, 2017 / 8:56 am

    Tan and Khaki are one of my favourite colour combinations Nancy. Looking fabulous! Have a great weekend xx

    • October 13, 2017 / 9:12 am

      Thank you Laurie! Enjoy your weekend!

  9. October 13, 2017 / 9:42 am

    Certainly not boring beige more of a light camel just like your boots and it echoes the red tones in your hair. Always surprising to see the different combinations you can make with khaki – a great pairing! x

    • October 13, 2017 / 12:52 pm

      Thank you! I think that any colour looks good with khaki!

  10. October 13, 2017 / 10:08 am

    I was thinking it’s more a tan or gold colour than beige? Definitely suits you, and looks great with the earrings and boots.

    • October 13, 2017 / 12:55 pm

      Yes, I think it’s a bit more tan. Thank you Gail!

  11. October 13, 2017 / 10:25 am

    Great colour combination, it works so so well on you! And can i just say your hair is fabulous!

    • October 13, 2017 / 12:55 pm

      Ha ha, thank you! Only one day, the other day I hate it!

    • October 13, 2017 / 12:55 pm

      Thank you Nistha!

    • October 13, 2017 / 5:18 pm

      Thank you!

  12. October 13, 2017 / 2:18 pm

    The look is ultra chic and the color combo, sublime. The shoulder pads are a flattering detail and I love the booties you paired with the look. Xo Jonet

    • October 13, 2017 / 5:18 pm

      Thank you!

  13. October 13, 2017 / 2:33 pm

    Shoulder pads are returning? This is the first I’ve heard. I’m sure I’ll be seeing them everywhere now. I really liked them back in the 80’s and 90s and would love to wear them again. I actually think they are flattering on everyone because they give the illusion of better posture and make our waistlines look smaller.

    • October 13, 2017 / 5:19 pm

      You are so right! Thanks!

    • October 13, 2017 / 5:19 pm

      Thank you Jacqui!

  14. October 13, 2017 / 3:26 pm

  16. October 13, 2017 / 5:56 pm

    Such a fun, unique outfit, and it looks amazing on you! I have to admit I’ve stayed away from shoulder pads – too many bad memories from high school in the 80’s – but this blouse is really pretty. Have a great weekend!

    • October 13, 2017 / 6:56 pm

      Thank you dear! Have a great weekend!

  23. October 14, 2017 / 3:07 am

    Oh my goodness, Nancy…I love, love, LOVE this look on you!! Might be my favourite yet!! Of course the colour palette of beige and olive is right up my alley…but these tones suit YOU to a “T”, too!! The blouse with the corset fasteners and statement sleeves is right on trend right now (I didn’t even notice the shoulder pads!) and those trousers are AWESOME…especially with the sleek sock booties!! You go, girl!! XOXO

    • October 14, 2017 / 11:17 am

      Well that’s a lovely comment to start the day with! Thank you Monika!

    • October 15, 2017 / 10:16 am

      Thank you laura

  29. October 15, 2017 / 6:55 am

    I avoid wearing beige near my face too but I think you can wear it – it looks fabulous one. Perhaps it’s because you have your hair down? The top itself looks amazing on you too – I’m one of those people that avoids shoulder pads, I’d look like an American football player lol.
    LOVE the trousers!!
    Suzy xx &

    • October 15, 2017 / 10:17 am

      Haha, a lot of women don’t like them. I think it depends on the garment. Sometimes it can look good!

  30. October 15, 2017 / 11:37 am

    Love those pants. Beige and green are staple combo. Sometimes I’ll add a splash of red but you’ve added a splash of style detail.

    • October 15, 2017 / 12:18 pm

      Thank you!

  31. October 15, 2017 / 1:16 pm

    Loved this post, it was light and fun. The trouser and top looks amazing on you, i personally can’t do shoulder pads with my broad shoulders but it i like it when i see someone it fits.

    • October 16, 2017 / 8:59 am

      Thank you very much

  32. October 15, 2017 / 1:28 pm

    I love that blouse too! I think the color looks fine. However I know I would buy a different color too if another one was an option. I love the shoes with this outfit. They look awesome!

    • October 16, 2017 / 9:00 am

      Thanks Nina!

      Thank you very much Penny!

  35. October 18, 2017 / 12:45 am

    Hi Nancy. I am so pleased to meet you! Now I love this outfit on YOU. It would look awful on ME…lol. I’m too ‘round’! As for shoulder pads…as one who has sloping shoulders, I love shoulder pads to add a bit of shape and structure. Not those 80s things that make you look like a wrestler. Just little subtle ones. I think the shoulder pads lend this top a great shape. You look fab. Thanks for the linkup too. Mimi

    • October 18, 2017 / 8:20 am

      Thank you very much! How nice to see you here! Thank you for stopping by

    I love this outfit Nancy! The colours look great on you. I wear jackets with shoulder pads sometimes too, I think they create a nice shape.
