PLEATED SKIRT & LONG CARDIGAN

PLEATED SKIRT & LONG CARDIGAN

Another pleated skirt

Pleated skirts are still a trend. And fortunately, because I love them.

I want to ask you if you would be so kind to vote for me for the Blogger’s Battle! Would appreciate it, it will only take a minute.

This skirt is from Primark. I love to shop there once a year or so, but it’s rare that I buy clothes there. But I felt like shopping on a Sunday and went to the city with Gerben. He really did not want to go inside but fortunately there are nice shops in Arnhem where Gerben can shop. Otherwise, he would of course have been able to sit with all those other men who were waiting outside the Primark on the sidewalk!(funny sight) I succeeded surprisingly this time. In fact, everything (except the boots) comes from the Primark.

Pleated skirt and long cardigan

I did not intend to wear the skirt with this top. I wanted to wear the top on a black skirt and with the pleated skirt I had a denim blouse in mind. But these colors look very good together. A bit the opposite of ton sur ton! Color blocking. The long cardigan looks surprisingly good, I think, on the skirt. I thought I wasn’t a fan of wearing longer jackets or cardigans on wider skirts. I felt very good about it. The boots are very nice but are really awful to put on and off. There is no zipper and they are quite narrow. I’m almost out of breath when I finally have them on, and Gerben has to help me with the pulling out. It’s a good thing you all don’t see that! The belt is transparent and I bought the beautiful ring in an antique store in Lewes. Gerben had seen it before I did! It’s my first pre loved jewelry. I have to be honest, I cleaned it like hell when we got home! But isn’t it worth it!pleated skirtpleated skirtpleated skirtpleated skirtpleated skirtpleated skirt

    I love the pleated skirt, Nancy, and your blouse is very pretty too. I think I might have seen it in Primark the other day. I do not usually shop there, but they had the most fabulous mustard coloured leather gloves. I always have a problem getting in and out of non-zippered boots, usually accompanied by a lot of cursing 😉 xxx

    Ooh, I love the idea of a long cardi over a pleated skirt – I will have to try that! I adore these colours together, Nancy – such a great combination. That’s your first pre-loved jewelry?? Welcome to the club! Most of mine is!

      And it’s all by Primark! Can you believe it!

    ik heb het vooroordeel dat geplooide rokken dik maken. Maar dat is bij jou bij deze zeker niet het geval. Supermooie kleur ook. En de laarsjes vind ik er ook heel leuk bij.

    Oh, I love this lacy burnt orange top with the royal and navy blues! Orange and black could skew a little Halloweenish maybe! And that ring is GORGEOUS! I used to buy a lot of my jewelry second-hand, but most of it has been sold off over the years – I’m just starting to crave jewelry again recently.

    And boots that are difficult to get on and off? Oh, I wouldn’t know about THAT – ha! Cold weather foot- and leg-wear are the bane of my existence! It’s why I’m still wearing jeans with sneakers and dresses with bare legs when it’s essentially December! I keep looking hopefully at my winter dresses hanging in the closet, but when I think of the effort it will take to get me into tights?? I just pass and move over to a sweater and jeans. Boo. But so I can certainly empathize with you.

      I hate to put on tights too! I am exhausted when I am finally dressed! Haha, I would love to wear no tights, but it’s way to cold here.

    I want to apologize for not stopping in *all week*! Funny enough, I just purchased a pleated skirt this week! I seem to be following your styles. I really like your long cardigan over the skirt and the added texture of the lace top. Be careful with removing those booties!

    Such an adorable combination dear. Love the orange top, really cute contrast with the blue skirt.
