Striped Sweater & Fancy Friday linkup party

striped sweater outfit

I didn’t think I loved stripes that much. But when I reorganized my closets I saw a lot of striped sweaters. Also a few dresses and skirts. I think I love stripes better then I thought. For today’s outfit I not only show you a new striped sweater, but also my beautiful winter coat , which I love a lot and new trousers. This season seems to be my trouser season. Gosh no, I don’t want to wear more trousers then skirts or dresses. But then again, they are so much warmer at the moment!

This sweater is from a collaboration. But I’m not going to mention the name of the company. Let me tell you why not. I was allowed to choose three items and I only received this sweater with an email saying that it had to be posted the next day and with do follow links, which we didn’t agree in previous emails. What then! Am I your dog? Bloody idiots. I emailed that that was not going to happen and that I would publish if I had the other items in. And guess what? The other items never arrived. Outrageous as some companies are!

No Bad Buys with this striped sweater!statement earrings

But I am very happy with the striped sweater for which I don’t have to do anything! And what about these trousers! They are great! High waist and with a nice wide belt on it. And then my winter coat. I can never find a nice warm winter coat. A few years ago I settled for this one because I had to have one anyway. But I didn’t like it. And this one is amazing! Exactly what I want from a winter jacket. Black, wool blended, long sleeves, not to tight, pockets, simple. Pooh pooh, it has been a while since I made a bad buy! Awesome!

Often when I am writing my Friday’s post I am thinking, oh I can wear this with that. Also with this striped sweater. I am thinking, velvet pleated skirt. Heels under these trousers with a bow blouse etc. That is not interesting for you at all. So I am holding back, but I am getting all exited of how to wear these items more. Perhaps I should write it down in my calendar……fashion blogger in striped sweater

    This a very pretty outfit, Nancy! I love the color combination of the stripes. Too bad the company’s business tactics were so slimy. It’s great that you have a winter coat you like so much. Coats can be tricky!

      Yes they can. Often they are so tight and that gives me trouble breathing.

    Wow you look amazing Nancy.This sweater is an eyecatcher and congrats about your nes coat. You are right. Companies have to work serious with Bloggers. There are many black sheeps.

    What a cracker of an outfit to start off the new year Nancy! I get loads of these emails about do-follow links. Just delete! The jumper is lovely though and the trousers are everything! xx

      Indeed, or then you finally agree to a collaboration and after receiving it they tell you it needs 3 do follow links! Haha, no way, we didn’t agree on that.

  4. 8th January 2021 / 18:22

    I’m sorry that the company was so awful, I am finding it harder and harder to work with some of these brands. Their expectations are not worth it, especially when they are not honest at the start. At least you got a pretty sweater – I like the colors!

    It is a great sweater and coat, Nancy! I love the whole outfit and of course those boots that I die for every time I see them! I remember a few years ago I had a pair of boots from a collaboration that had a nail in the footbed that slashed my toe so badly. When I reached out to the company, they told me there was nothing they could do and I was still obligated to write my post reviewing the product. So I did! And you bet it was a terrbile review. And I never worked with that company again. Some have been dreams to work with while others have been nightmares! And you should share who the company is so the rest of us know to avoid them! Happy weekend, my beautiful friend.

      Oh that’s horrible about that nail. Well, I thought about that but because I have a great sweater I didn’t.

  6. 8th January 2021 / 18:22

    Nice colour stripes! I admire your stance with the company – do follow links indeed! A lot of these companies ans agencies need to act with more professionalism.

    Your coat looks so classic and cosy! I love the striped knit too, colourful with the black although what a shame the company was so rude and untrustworthy with their collaboration idea!

    Thank you for the link up 🙂

    Hope you are having a good week and have a nice weekend ahead of you 🙂

    I’m glad you pushed back with that brand! I hate it when they try to take advantage of you. That is such a great sweater though and such a fabulous look!

    This is such a fabulous look on you, Nancy. love the trousers and boots. I think most bloggers have a story to tell regarding unprofessional behaviour, unfortunately. It makes me very cautious.

    Hi Nancy
    I am in the South, yet I bought 2 winter coats this year on sale! I love a great Winter coat, and yours is just that. Love the length and the classic style. The colors in your sweater are loevly with the structured trousers. A great look! Too bad the company was difficult to work with!

      Thanks Jess. How low is the winter temperature over there with you Jess?

  12. 8th January 2021 / 18:22

    Love the greys and yellow in the sweater and the statement earrings! I definitely am not wearing skirts and dresses much right now, only to church and I switch back to pants when I get home. Cold rainy days like today call for warmer layers.

      I wear or leggings or thick tights under my skirts. Only not when I go cycling, then it’s to cold for that!

  13. 8th January 2021 / 18:22

    I have never done any collaborations, but if I did, I would be exactly the same as you. It’s your blog and nobody has any say in what and when you post something. The striped sweater is very nice, I must say, and you styled it very elegantly with your new trousers. The coat is clearly an investment buy: it is absolutely stunning! xxx

    That trouser outfit is stunning, Nancy! Some of these companies want a lot and give very little. Good for you for saying no. I can see these pieces styled lots of ways, too! It will look super cute with a velvet pleated skirt. Hey, I might try that, too! Lol! Maybe we can collaborate!

    That sweater is so lovely Nancy. Not that it has good memories but we certainly learn over time. And it’s a good story. I can see how the sweater will go with so much. You should make a “reel” on Instagram showcasing the options!!!

    Ugh, the nerve of some of these companies—I swear, they’re getting worse and worse with their expectations. I’ve stopped accepting most product-only deals because they’re not worth the headache. That said, it’s a cute sweater!

    Nancy, you certainly lucked out with that sweater even if the collaboration fell out. I’m so leary of doing collaborations because of what happened to you. Even so, your sweater is fabulous and you look fantastic.

    This striped sweater is such a great piece for winter, Nancy! Despite the drama it is a great piece that I am sure you will wear over and over. I love the colors, and your earrings are stunning as well.

    I hope you are having a great week so far!
