My very first plaid pants!

For years ago I wore plaid much more. I had a plaid pencilskirt, plaid bodycon dresses, plaid trenchcoat etc. But I can’t remember I have ever worn plaid pants. I am really fond of plaid, I like a classic style. By the way, I don’t know wether you name it plaid or checkered, I really don’t know the difference but I like to call it plaid. These pants I bought recently when Gerben and I actually went into the city to buy new sneakers for the both of us. To use in the gym…..not for a sporty look! When we had bought them Gerben said: don’t you want to shop over at h&m? Well, you don’t have to tell me that twice! Bye bye Gerben, see you in an hour!

I love above the ankles trousers, 7/8 lenght. I have skinny legs and with a long upper body long pants make me so drawling. I only have above the ankle pants. I saw this one straight away and knew it was meant for me. I hardly wear pants , but the past season I have bought several, this one and this one. The top was very cheap so I bought the same one in green too. Come on, you all say that green is thè color for 2017, so what could I do? And then I saw the bomber jacket! Isn’t it just a great jacket! I love it, and I know I will be wearing it a lot. Over dresses, but also as a spring/summer outdoor jacket. They had it in all colors. You really should check it, link is under the post. I also still love my patent leather Chelsea boots. They are so easy to walk on, for shopping or doing your groceries. When I would go out for lunch or something like that, I would wear ankle boots with a small heel. I love this bracelet with snakeprint. It is very old, it is a bit to tight now because I bought it when I was much thinner. Because it is still very cold here, I wear a basic shirt under the top. But I love to wear it with a lace camisole.

    A great look Nancy. This is the type of trousers I normally by. But for me they look much longer on my short legs! X

    • February 17, 2017 / 6:45 am

      Ha ha, you don’t look that short!

  2. February 17, 2017 / 12:57 am

    I like your new plaid pants & the entire look a lot! And I love how you justify every single piece you bought that day… 😉

    Thanks for picking me as your favorite! It truly made my day! Thank you!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    • February 17, 2017 / 6:46 am

      I knew for a long time that when I reached a100 finally, you would be my first favorite!

    If I remember correctly, I had a pair of plaid pants way back in the late 80s or early 90s. Fun times!

    • February 17, 2017 / 6:47 am

      Ha ha, if I remember I had them in the 70s! Ha ha ha

    I love these plaid pants, Nancy!! I do think it’s fun to try other styles or items that we don’t normally wear!! We might as well have fun with our clothing, right?

    • February 17, 2017 / 6:48 am

      Oh yeah, I totally agree!

  5. February 17, 2017 / 8:39 am

    I love your pants! A look a little “sui generis”, but that works well on you. The shirt is very nice and the whole look is bold and modern. A special girl.

    • February 17, 2017 / 9:11 am

      Thank you!

  6. February 17, 2017 / 9:19 am

    Je straalt en ziet erg gelukkig uit in je de outfit. De zon helpt zeker mee. 😉 De jas en armband is wat voor mij.

    • February 17, 2017 / 9:20 am

      Dankje! Ja mooi jasje hè. In heel veel kleuren!

  7. February 17, 2017 / 10:26 am

    Dit staat je weer super leuk!! De broek is weer eens wat anders. Het bordeaux rode shirt is ook mooi gecombineerd en eveneens het jasje! Tip top!!

    • February 17, 2017 / 11:03 am

      Dankjewel! Ja, zo draag ik in maanden geen broek, en zo ineens heel vaak. De top heb ik ook in het groen meegenomen, van die leuke tops die herlijk zitten en je slaat ze door een sopje , hangt ze op en klaar.Ook heel fijn!

  8. February 17, 2017 / 10:39 am

    This is a great casual look. Plaid trousers, fabulous! And H&M?!? I think i need to give the old H&M a second chance, I haven’t been there for ages, and I’m currently desperately trying to find a new pair of trousers (easier said than done, with my body shape, it seems…)

    • February 17, 2017 / 11:01 am

      Sometimes I find a lot of things at H&M and sometimes nothing at all. I always love their lingerie. I also find it hard to find good pants.

  9. February 17, 2017 / 11:48 am

    Die broek staat je supergoed moet ik zeggen. En dat is heel wat want dat type broeken vind ik vaak best ‘moeilijk’! Ik zou me er zelf ook niet aan wagen : )

    • February 17, 2017 / 1:25 pm

      Dankjewel, de meeste broeken staan mij gewoon niet. Ik heb geen moooie benen en geen kont! Haha.

    Nancy, this is such a great outfit! I have loved plaid pants for as long as I can remember. I remember back in the 80’s when Cyndi Lauper used to rock out the plaid pants, I was so envious! Then my older sister got a pair in orange, red, and yellow plaid. They were so obnoxious, but I loved them so much! I was only about 8 years old, so for some reason, I wasn’t allowed to get a pair (or maybe they didn’t make them in my size). Eventually, I got my very first pair of plaid pants only about 2 years ago! By the way, your boots are so amazing, too!


    • February 17, 2017 / 1:27 pm

      haha, I had to laugh about your sister’s pants. I think I had a pair when I was a kid, but am not sure. Yes, I love these too, the boots, they go with anything and are easy to walk on! Haha, that’s something different right Shelbee!

    • February 17, 2017 / 1:28 pm

      Thank you! When do you say pants and when trousers?

  11. February 17, 2017 / 12:52 pm

    GREAT pants sweet Nancy and the whole look is so fun and chic!! I need one of those tops too, the front is darling!! Happy weekend sweetness!!

    • February 17, 2017 / 1:28 pm

    Nancy, you look fabulous and I may just have to copy your post! Isn’t that the greatest form of compliment, when we inspire someone else. I love everything about this look. The colors, the plaid, that cute top and bomber jacket. You put together a great outfit. Thanks for sharing and for hosting the link up. Congrats on your 100! Whoo, hoo! – Amy

    • February 17, 2017 / 3:57 pm

      Wow! Thank you Amy! That certainly is a big compliment!

    Nancy, I HEART YOUR PLAID PANTS!! And your bomber jacket. OMG even if green wasn’t the colour of the year, it’d be on my must-have list too 🙂

    • February 18, 2017 / 12:27 pm

      Thank you Sheela. Lucky green is my favorite color, after black of course 🙂 🙂

    I adore plaid pants and you’ve styled yours so nicely. The cropped length with a bomber jacket is so on trend right now. Thank you for the inspiration and for the link up. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.

  24. February 20, 2017 / 4:37 pm

    Such a wonderful way to style your new plaid pants, which, by the way, look Fab on you! I have to stop myself from buying anymore plaid pants because I love them, but rarely wear pants, so they just hang there. Of course I always style mine for the office, and now you have opened me up to the idea of trying them more casually. Thanks, Nancy!

    • February 20, 2017 / 7:00 pm

      Well I’m glad to hear that! Thank you very much!

  25. February 20, 2017 / 8:50 pm

    Awesome look Nancy! I love plaid pants and the ones you are wearing are soo cool!

    • February 20, 2017 / 10:24 pm

      Thank you very much! 🙂 🙂

  26. February 20, 2017 / 10:04 pm

    Those pants were definitely meant for you! I have a pair of plaid pants and love them. These ones are so fun and the grey color makes them super versatile!

    • February 20, 2017 / 10:26 pm

      Thank you!

  27. February 20, 2017 / 10:29 pm

    Nancy, I’m loving your bomber jacket! And the way you styled this whole look!
    Hope you have a great week ahead!
