Bow blouse on a pencil skirt

I love bow blouses, I have several see here and here. Today I show you my new pinestriped one. I already tried the print on print outfit here, today I wear lines on lines! Vertical and horizontal! You almost think I am crazy….. These kind of bow blouses are very trendy at the moment. The pinestriped ones with puff sleeves. I know I will proberbly like this one only this season. It’s a real fast fashion item to me. I know I am pushing a lot of fashion bloggers now. Because lot of you are really into thrifting and thinking of the environment. And believe me, I do too. I deal with my waste and environment very consiously. But fast fashion exist and I am part of that. So when I see a very trendy item, that I know I will like for only a few times, one season, I order it on a cheap site. I am not going for an expensive and good quality item then. And when I don’t like it anymore, it goes into the clothing container. This is such an item.

Very cheap bow blouse

Sometimes those cheap items can really surprise you. Like this bow blouse. It’s a very thin cotton, which is great for warmer days( and women in menopause!). And the fit is very good. I wanted to wear the blouse on a tight skirt and thought that it would look good on a striped skirt. I want to wear it also on my boyfriend jeans with heels! To give the outfit a smooth sporty look, I wear sneakers. Stylish but also a bit less serious! I wear simple black earrings and bracelets to remain in the same lines as the skirt. What do you think about my new garden chairs? I bought two of these retro chairs! Just love them.

    You look adorable. I like the way that blouse fits you, so whether you wear it three times or thirty, it was a good investment. You nailed the print mixing! Well done. – Amy

    Fashion is a bit like food: we know what’s good for us, and for the most part we stick with a healthy diet, allowing ourselves a a good-quality, delicious sugary treat once in a while. But sometimes, not too often, you just must have a burger…

      Hahaha, you have such a humoristic (is that an existing word) way of saying things!

    This bow blouse is very beautiful and I love the outfit! It’s such a good idea to wear it with sneakers which make this look very chic!

    I love your striped skirt and I love your sweater. I really like the original design of the blouse and the fabric and the color. The striped skirt is cute and you look perfect, super cute and super attractive. It is difficult and risky to wear skirts with horizontal stripes, but you pass the test with very high marks.

      Haha, Thank you! I am glad you like it!

    I love your blouse Nancy, it is so flattering on you. Love your garden too – hydrangeas are my favorite but don’t grow well at all here, bummer!

    • August 29, 2017 / 1:27 pm

      Thank you! I have a lot of them, they are my favorite! The ones behind me while sitting in the chair, we took from our previous house! I didn t want to leave them behind!

    I love bows <3 I have loads of tops with bows, but those bows are usually in my neck 🙂

    • August 29, 2017 / 1:27 pm

      The ones I ve got too!

    I love the blouse but I must admit that my favourite thing about this look is the fact that you’ve taken such fun trainers and teamed them with a skirt that is quite dressy! I have a black and white pencil skirt that I hardly ever wear because I think it’s too dressy (which is mad, I know) that I might just try wearing with trainers too!
    Wonderful 🙂

      Yes, you should! I also wear dressy dresses in winter with boots with flat heels. To make the look a bit more tougher of edgy, don t know how to say it in English. To make it more casual.

    I love the style of the blouse Nancy! I have one like it that I bought in the Zara sale. The striped skirt and trainers are fab! I wish I could wear trainers with a skirt, but my feet are too big and it just looks weird.

      Ha ha, really? Now I’m gonna look at your feet all the time

      Thank you Elise!

    Wat een aparte combinatie. Ik moet zeggen dat ik dit zelf zo niet gedurfd zou hebben. Stemmetje in mijn hoofd zou gelijk horen ‘wat heb jij nou weer aan?’ K had een vriendin die altijd alles deed afkeuren, zo verschrikkelijk! Ik ben blij te zien dat jij ‘ballen’ hebt en je blijft mijn fashion voorbeeld!

    • August 29, 2017 / 8:35 pm

      Ga toch weg! Je bent zo’n prachtige vrouw, jij kan bijna alles aan! Wat een rot vriendin zeg!

  13. August 29, 2017 / 5:34 pm

    You look gorgeous in your outfit! Your garden and chairs are pretty too!
