Satin skirt with batik design

satin skirt with batik design

But I think my new satin skirt is more of a tie-dye design then a batik design! Hey, I don’t even like batik designs. Anyway…

I always have a bit of trouble finding a nice brown sweater or brown cardigan. Dark brown that is. Beige is everywhere! But this season brown seems the new black. So I  finally got a brown sweater. I really didn’t have one!

Satin skirt with batik design, tie-dye or cow print?

I immediately fell in love with this satin skirt. A bit tie-dye, but they call it batik, but it actually reminds me more of a cow print. The skirt  reminded me of a rug that used to be on the floor with my grandparents. If you are in your early fifties, you must have some idea what I mean.

But this skirt is a satin one so just like silk ones it needs….. corrective underwear! I wore the skirt for the first time when Gerben and I went to the cinema and had dinner beforehand. Sushi! ALL YOU CAN EAT! Well let me tell you what it is about sushi and me. It’s all you can eat and then just a bit more! So you can imagine how the skirt looked like after dinner around the belly area! I didn’t wear corrective underwear then. To do! And eat sushi at a none all you can eat restaurant. 

How I wear my satin skirt

Very simple, because I think this outfit doesn’t need much to add. So I bought this sweater with the skirt, and although I am not a fan of a turtleneck, I bought it anyway. And now I want a black one too! I used to wear a lot of black turtlenecks. Because I think they look so damn good on a perfect pencil skirt. But somewhere along the road I didn’t think they looked good on me anymore. But now they are perfect to hide the aging neck! I embrace them again, haha.

I love the golden buttons on this sweater. My brown over the knee boots are perfect for under this skirt. I was doubting if I should wear this necklace or not. The outfit doesn’t need it, but on the other hand it is a good necklace to go with the skirt. What do you think, with or without the necklace?brown outfit with a satin skirtbrown over the knee boot outfitwide skirt with batik designbloggers outfit in brownstatement necklace with featherssatin skirt with batik designsweater with turtle neck in brown

    I love the beautiful print on the skirt, no matter what we call it – it’s gorgeous. I’m also stocking up on turtleneck sweaters, as my neck skin is getting crepey! I think you made a good choice on the necklace – otherwise, it’s just too much boobs going on! Ha!

      Too much boobs? With me? Noooo. Lol. I heard yesterday that it’s called a tech neck! Haha, but I orderd Prai creme yesterday so who knows!

    I live in turtle necks all winter. The necklace was a great idea – it really adds to the outfit.

    That’s such a gorgeous outfit on you, Nancy! Browns really suit you. And that jumper really has exactly the right shade of brown, which I love, too. The skirt is amazing, whatever the print is called. I do remember the carpets you’re talking about ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh, and I’m so loving your fabulous necklace too! xxx

      Thanks Ann, I love to wear brown but you don’t see brown that much. But this season it’s everywhere. Mostly I then don’t like it but I loved this look!

  8. 5th November 2019 / 18:22

    I would opt for the super simple styling, so without the necklace. It competes with that fantastic skirt and steals away the attention. So keep that fabulous necklace for another outfit! Love, Lieske

      Actually Lieske, I went out after the shoot and I did put of the necklace! What is it that they say, great minds…..

    It’s a beautiful skirt! I like the tie dye print and that top is the perfect colour with it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope that your week is going well ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a very hot one here! More like summer than spring!

    Nancy, I love how you styled this satin skirt and the print is so cool whatever you call it! Brown sweaters really are difficult to find, arenโ€™t they? I donโ€™t know that I have any. And then the shades of brown are so varied they never seem to match what you need it to match. I do love this pretty brown turtleneck paired with the maxi skirt and tall boots for a very vintage feel. And your necklace is gorgeous! I say yes to the necklace! Thanks for linking up, my friend.
