Black paperbagwaist pants

For you who read my blog a bit longer, know that I am not a huge trouser fan. I have a few that I really like, but it is rarely that I find a good one. And I don’t want to because I’d rather wear skirts and dresses. But the paperbag pants kept on calling my name so when I ordered two miniskirts, I also ordered these pants to try. When I received them and tried them on, at first I thought: no, this one is going back. But then I showed the skirts to Gerben and the pants and said, the pants aren’t staying. Gerben said: why not, I think they look very good. Afther long checking in the mirror and lots of, do you really think they look good’s, I decided to keep the paperbagwaist pants. With still a bit of hesitation. And then the day came that I wanted to wear them! Pffff, what a misery.

How do I wear these trousers??

Normally when I order or get something, I know immediatly how I want to style it. It rarely occours that I think, no this doesn’t work. (for me that is, perhaps you think otherwise!) I thought it would be great to wear it elegantly. With pumps and a short jacket and a lace top.paperbagwaist pantspaperbagwaist pantspaperbagwaist pants Yes, I think it’s elegant, but it is so not me. I don’t feel comfortable in this look at all. I feel like a totall different person. Okay, then I changed into a more casual top and my new flat shoes.paperbagwaist pantspaperbagwaist pantspaperbagwaist pants That didn’t do the trick for me either. I do like the Ombre sweater. I think it’s a bit better then the first look, but there is something about the belly area. I feel I have a huge belly and huge hips. But it was time to go and I felt cold. It started to rain during the first look and by that last photo I was already getting pretty wet. The second look I stood at the frontdoor, dry……not Gerben….hahaha, and then we say that life of a blogger is hard! But okay, I put on a warmer sweater and there was no more time anymore. But I put on that sweater and said: Yes! this is the look I want with these trousers. Damn, so I had the pictures taken on another day for the last look.paperbagwaist pantspaperbagwaist pantspaperbagwaist pantspaperbagwaist pants

So now I bought a paperbagwaist pants, and I hide the paperbagwaist! Great job Nancy! Don’t listen to Gerben! He also had the nerve to tell me(afther the two first shoots)to buy a new bra! What the…. Men! But yeah, I had the straps a bit to loose, not a pretty sight….

    Well Nancy, I am with Gerben. I like the pants on you, especially the first two looks. I think the paperbagwaist looks good with a slimmer top and YOU can wear it because YOU are so slender. There is nothing huge about your figure! I like the ombre top but I think the knot in it competes with the waist of the pants. The silhouette is stunning on you and you look terrific! I can’t wait to see how you style them next, when the weather gets warmer they’d be great with a tank!

      Really? Funny how we see ourselves so different then others. Thank you, I will try it with a plain basic shirt!

    Ha ha, when I got to the third outfit I was like SHE’S HIDING THE PAPERBAG WAIST! and then you said the very same thing 🙂 So really they’re just wide-legged trousers now. Hope you didn’t pay extra for the paperbag part! I actually thought the first outfit looked very nice, too, but I understand when something just doesn’t feel right to you.

    And…men! Sheesh.

      Haha! Yes it is now a very simple trousers!

    I think the paperbag waist is fun—you can’t cover it up—that’s just plain silly!!
    The first two look are great. And try some more!!! You have to!!

    • November 28, 2017 / 1:02 pm

      HAhaha, this is so funny! This is why you want the opinion of other bloggers! I will!

    Oh Nancy don’t hide the paperbackwaist 🙂 I like the second style with flats. You can wear it soo good. Gerben is right 😉

    • November 28, 2017 / 1:03 pm

      HAhaha, you all keep crapping me up! I will give it another try!

    I love the first two looks, though the third looks more like a Netflix and chill kinda outfit..

    • November 28, 2017 / 1:07 pm

      Yes now I see that it is to basic! To ordinary!

    The flat shoes and casual top look good with the trousers. It’s a trend I’ve avoided because that type of pant doesn’t work on me.

    • November 28, 2017 / 1:07 pm

      I think it doesn t work for me either!

    • November 28, 2017 / 1:08 pm

      Thank you very much Gemma! Have a great week!

  7. November 28, 2017 / 2:24 pm

    Those pants wouldn’t be for me either, with my wide hips, so I guess I’d also hide the paperbag waist thing. I must add that I love your first look though! xxx

      Thank you Ann!

      Thank you! Enjoy yours too!

    I love the top look with a cropped jacket and heels, very cute! It doesn’t make your tummy look big at all!

    Staat je echt heel mooi Nancy! Niks mis met een broek! Ik ben er dol op!

    • November 29, 2017 / 8:14 am

  12. November 28, 2017 / 11:14 pm

    Wow these are some great ways to wear paperbag pants! Even I was very confused when I first bought them and I agree with your looks, going monochrome is the best idea )

    • November 29, 2017 / 8:15 am

      I think so too! Thank you!

    I think you look lovely in all these outfits but most important is that you feel good about whatever you wear.

    Wat grappig dat je je niet fijn voelt in de eerste, die vind ik je juist het leukste staan!!

    • November 30, 2017 / 8:08 pm

      Ja maf is dat hè. Ik vond de eerste ook wel leuk, maar t is t gevoel wat een outfit je geeft.

    I really like all three looks, I think you did a great job styling them. It’s good to experiment and try things we wouldn’t usually wear. I have some paperbag waist trousers which are quite baggy around the bum, maybe not the most flattering style on me but they are comfortable! Thanks for linking up Nancy!
