It could not sound more boring to me, plaid blouse and jeans. I mean, I picture in my head a lumberjack, jeans and some unflattering boots. But hey, this isn’t boring at all is it? It’s a plaid blouse with super statement puff sleeves and a bow!
And so it is suddenly December 23rd and we are on the eve of Christmas 2022. It feels a bit strange. The past two years have been a bit different than usual due to corona. I’m ready and yet I’m not.
Not spending Christmas in jeans and a plaid blouse!
Ready, because I have everything covered, I know what I’m going to wear, well let’s put it another way, I have plenty to choose from, I don’t host anything at home, so not much groceries to get in the house. Not ready, because suddenly another year has passed. A year in which I feel like I’ve been too busy with my health, because I had to, and too little with the people around me I love. I know it’s not really true, but it sure feels like it. That’s what Christmas does to you, that’s a bit melodramatic, isn’t it?
I’m going to enjoy it very much, being together, eating delicious food, having the time to just do nothing, getting dressed up. What I’m definitely not going to wear at Christmas is this outfit! Never never never will I wear jeans nor a plaid blouse for Christmas. But today it’s still allowed and so I’ll show you the second pair of jeans that I bought a while ago.
Is there anything more dull then jeans and a plaid blouse?
This is the slightly darker version of this one. With a modern version of a lumberjack blouse on it! Isn’t this just super pretty! Look at those sleeves. I really need to flatten them a bit or I’ll be like a rugby player. And a bow! I love it. The colours are a lovely babyblue with a bit burnt orange. I thought the blue ankle boots looked good with it, colourwise. I don’t particular like the cowboy-ish design with the jeans and plaid blouse, it is a bit to thought about for me, yeah really….
But another colour took away the attention of the plaid bow blouse and it felt fidgety to me. Tan boots wil work too, that’s for another moment. I am wearing clay burnt range earrings. They are so super light. It was really freezing hence the cap and sort of gloves.
Have fabulous Christmas days everyone!!

Have a wonderful Christmas! It is a fun blouse and love how you put it all together: the beanie and gloves just add to the outfit! I’ve got my outfits planned to for the next 3 days! It is going to be cold so anytime outdoors, I will add my warm coat.
Ha! I hardly recognized you, Nancy. This is not the typical Nancy outfit. But it looks marvelous! I love the colors and the puffy sleeves on the blouse. Oh and of course the boots! Happy Holidays!
What an amazing blouse, Nancy, and it looks absolutely perfect with the jeans and blue ankle boots! Quite the opposite of boring! Wishing you and Gerben a Merry Christmas! xxx

Thank you very much Emma!
What a fun blouse, Nancy! I love the way you’ve put together your look, too! I don’t think the blue boots are too much at all! I know what you mean about the last two years. You feel like you’re not going to ever make up for lost time. I really missed being with my kids and grandkids…not hugging them for more than a year was awful. But, I’m glad you’re feeling better again! Here’s to a new year with even better memories to be made! Thanks for the link party! Come on over for one now open and another on Friday!
Thank you very much Marsha! I can’t imagine how it must have felt when you are having kids and grandchildren. Glad those days are over that we can’t see family!
I think you made this fabulous Nancy. It really goes to show that you can add sass to anything and look fantastic.
I hope you had a Merry Christmas,
Thank you very much Jodie! We did! And I hoe you are having a great time in California!
The blouse is my fav. The little puff and tie is lovely.
