How to wear beige? It’s not always the most easiest color to style or to wear. In last weeks post I wore a monochrome beige outfit. Now I style a beige clock skirt with black. Don’t mind my terribly white legs. But I was so happy that I could finally go outside without a pair of tights! I’m really done with tights now. But it was only 11 degrees, so actually too cold. But the sun was shining so well, and then you think it’s much warmer then it really is.
What I like about this laced up skirt
This skirt is made of cotton and many women really like that, not me. Just like linen, I think it is too much wrinkling and to stiff. I prefer flexible soft fabrics. But this skirt has the big advantage of pockets, why do we always like that so much? And I think the lacing is very nice. The skirt is also very high waisted and I think that looks good with skirts. Only with skirts!
You now of course see those high waisted jeans that are completely hot. I don’t like jeans anyway, but the high waisted designs are ridiculous in my eyes. Well you can say yes but Nancy, that is also for young girls. Well sorry, but even with young girls I don’t think it looks good. You also get such a weird ass in it. It must be me…
How I wear a laced up beige skirt
I wear the skirt with a simple black blouse, the blouse has fairly wide cuffs, and a biker jacket. The peep-toes are pretty old and dated, but I can’t say good-bye to them. I can’t enjoy that that long anymore, because they are really less beautiful now. I also have these in very light pink. Simple gold colored accessories, not as much as I wear here. And of course, as always, also during winter ladies!, red toe nails. Non polished toe nails look horrible to me, sorry, can’t help it.
So again a outfit that I shopped in my closet. I do shop a lot less and try to think twice before I by. And when I buy something new, it is often pre loved( talk about new?) or from a good quality. Once in a while I let myself go by shopping at Primark for some trendy items that I know I only will like for one season.
Are you more aware of what you buy as a few years ago?
I would really appreciate it if you would share my outfit on Pinterest! Just hoover over the photo!
Very simple and it works wonders Nancy. Super stylish. I adore the skirt, the lacing, the high waist and the overall fit. I am sure you will wear it often, since you can combine it with so many different colours and items of your wardrobe. Enjoy your Tuesday. A bit warmer already? Love, Lieske
Thanks Lieske. It has been really lovely and sunny the last few days and today is sunny too but….the next days will be just very cold and even with frost at night and a chance on snow!!! What!
This high waisted skirt with its pretty lace up detail really accentuates your enviously tiny waist, Nancy. It looks like a very versatile garment, which can be combined with many different tops. I’m seeing a floral print top here, which I’m sure doesn’t surprise you. I haven’t yet ventured outside without tights. My legs are really, and I mean REALLY, white 😉 I can’t stand unpainted toenails either, but I always find painting them such a chore! xxx
Me too, but I let the pedicure take care of that!
That skirt is fantastic on you Nancy!
This is the perfect spring skirt! Love how you added edge with the jacket.
I really love cotton skirts and and this one is so fabulous on you!
Thank you very much!
What a fun skirt! it’s a lovely length on you and the shirt tucked in really lets the fun lace up detail shine 🙂
Hope your week is off to a good start 🙂 The weekday wear linkup is live on my blog, I’d love you to join! 🙂

I think that lace up detail really makes this fabulous….it’s so unique and fun.
I definitely analyze my purchases more now…well, I try…haha
Hahaha, I tried too……I failed….
Jou staat het weer geweldig, maar ik zou hier te lomp in zijn door het veter gedeelte.
Jij bent helemaal niet lomp!
Love how you styled this beige skirt. IT looks amazing on you.
Thank you very much!
Oh wow that skirt is amazing! You totally rocked it and I just love the lace up detail!
Thank you Ruth!
The lace-up detail on the skirt is lovely and it has just the right amount of flair!
The high waist skirt has the perfect design and looks great with the black of the jacket, the shoes and the whole set.
Thank you very much!
Ha, ha. You’re description of high waisted jeans is funny. Really like the skirt with black, nice combination.
I’m not a fan of beige in general, but I do love the style of this skirt – pockets, yes! I like high waists on skirts and pants, but they can be harder to do with pants.
Yes you are right. High waisted trousers are not my favorite to be honest.
Love this skirt on you! Looks great with the black.
Great skirt Nancy, I think i saw a similar on in H & M, this looks good on you – as always. Jacqui Mummabstylish

Simple, yet timeless and sassy. Love the classic color combination dear.

This high waist skirt is so feminine. It makes the great hour glass figure. Love that. It seems that not only me as you had the most clicked style on My Red Carpet 14. Congratulations!
