A high low blouse on a denim pencil skirt?

No no, what to wear on a high-waisted denim pencil skirt! If you are my age, you’ve already worn high-waisted pants or skirts in a previous century. And we tucked everything in the pants or skirts. Teens don’t do that! They probably havn’t tucked a shirt in their lives! There is still nothing wrong with tucking a shirt in a pencil skirt, I did here, especially if you have a lot of details on the waistband. But you can also wear your shirt, or blouse, over your skirt especially if it is a high low blouse. When you wear a pencil skirt, and you are again my age, you have to keep an eye on the abdominal area especially if there is some stretch in the skirt. When you wear a blouse over it, you don’t have to worry about that. I do  think it’s better to wear a jacket to create a waist if the blouse isn’t fitted.

And did I invent this outfit completely by myself?

No! I have been a copycat! I saw it on Jodie’s blog Jodie’s Touch of Style. I only wore this blouse on a skinny jeans or a leather legging. And when I saw this post of Jodie, I thought, wow that’s a great way to wear a high low blouse. So all the credits go to Jodie!

My version of a high low blouse on denim pencil skirt.

I will say that the blouse and skirt needed some color.( Yes, I’m really saying that). A nice bright color. So I wore my pink jacket and pink red wedges with it. I love the combination of red and pink. Like blue and green. I added my red bracelet to have some red with the pink jacket. Soft pink earrings and that’s all the outfit needed in my eyes. Apart from a red watering can and a red plant. Hey, you can even water your plants in a stylish way!

Skirt: almost sold out but simular here

Shoes: sold out, but just for the fun of it, check here

Blouse: old one, but I like this one

    Wow…what a complete surprise to find that I inspired your outfit today, Nancy!! Thanks you so, so much for the shout out!!
    This turned out wonderful…and as a color lover—I think the addition of the pink jacket & shoes are the cherry on top!!!

    Love the pops of pink and the colour works so well with the blouse and skirt. And what a fun way to wear the blouse. I don’t think I’ve copied an exact look but have certainly been inspired to take elements of looks from other bloggers and lovely you mentioned your inspiration. She’s a great lady, is Jodie!

    Great outfit, Nancy! The high/low blouse looks great with the skirt! And how interesting/fun that your outfits are getting more and more colorful! 🙂

      Ha ha, yes Andrea, I don’t know what happened to me! But I also still like my black and darker outfits. But I have to say that it makes a appearance much cheerfuller!

    I really like this hi-lo hemline with your pencil skirt and the pops of pink are perfect! Very pretty look, Nancy.

    Awesome – love that touch of pink Nancy!
    You are ever so clever watering that plant – your aim is perfect even though you’re not looking at all!!!

    Nancy, I love this! The longer shirt over a pencil skirt is one way I use to conceal my middle-aged tummy! But I never thought to pair a fitted jacket over it to give some waist definition. So now I am going to copy you copying Jodie! That’s what we do as fashion bloggers, right? Get inspired by the fabulousness of other fashion bloggers!

    Thanks for linking up On the Edge of the Week! I hope to see you again next week. Have a wonderful weekend!

      Haha, we make a copy chain! But you are right, it s so nice to get ideas from others!

    Wat een leuke kleuren combinatie! Wat effe kleuren met vrolijk. Dat zou ik eigenlijk ook eens moeten proberen.

    PS: Even offtopic, ik zou het op prijs stellen als alleen het desbetreffende vakje wordt gebruikt voor de link van je blog, in de reacties die geplaatst worden op mijn blog. Ik verwijder hem nu telkens handmatig. Bij voorbaat dank!
