HERRINGBONE TROUSERS WITH BLUE BOOTS AND BLUE CARDIGAN & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

Have you ever heard of a herringbone pattern ?

While writing down the title, I suddenly realize that a long long time ago, when I was 16, I bought a second hand coat. I told you before that thrift shopping is not for me. I gave it a chance, or two, last summer in the UK, but no it’s not for me. But back then it was apparently. That coat was a herringbone wool blend coat. A fabulous coat, I remember I felt so fashionable in that coat. When Gerben and I went shopping, when I also bought this dress, he came up with these trousers and said: these I like! Oh, a herringbone one! I liked it too!

Herringbone with blue

Herringbone patterns are often found on tweed clothing. And I always have loved tweed. Especially of course the classic Chanel tweed. But back in the eighties this pattern was very popular. And this is the season that the eighties are hot again. Think shoulder pads, pointed boots, big hair(yeah) and the herringbone pattern. What I also bought on that shopping day were these boots and this cardigan. I didn’t buy them to match the trousers, but I thought: well, I don’t have a light blue cardigan yet. And later in another store: well, I don’t have blue ankle boots. I know, it was a ,,just buy what I want,, kind a day! ( and I enjoyed it).

I think these blue shades work very well with the trousers. It would be obvious to wear black or perhaps some red with it. I think the blue gives a bit of winter crisp feel to it, you know, ice, snow, all the things I hate. Haha. But any color is good. I am wearing fishnet socks with a bow at the back. Aren’t they lovely?herringbone trousersherringbone trousersherringbone trousersherringbone trousersherringbone trousersherringbone trousersherringbone trousersherringbone trousers

CLASSIC TWEED JACKET & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

I adore a classic tweed jacket

You know which one I mean: the classic Chanel tweed jacket! Oh I can be completely lyrical about it. The design, the cut, the colors, the fabric, the buttons! Oh sigh, I could stare at a original Chanel jacket for hours, so beautiful. A classic Chanel tweed jacket and the Hermès Birkin bag! Oh if I ever won lots of money…..Those two are pieces that do something to me, want to touch it, smell it…okay, I just shut up before you all think I’m totally crazy and the only thing I see in the comments is: Nancy, take it slow dear!

My (afordable) classic tweed jacket

*Actually, it didn’t cost me anything, because I was allowed to choose something from Shein. And I knew straight away it would be a tweed jacket. And fortunately they had a decent collection. Perhaps I never searched that well, but it seems to me that tweed is more trendy and available now then other years.

But then the styling

I thought a long time of how I would show you this jacket. Would I show it the elegant more sophisticated way, with pearls and all, the classic way, the obvious way? Or my way, how I would wear it on a everage day, boots and so. I decided for my way. But I can see me wearing this jacket on my black bodycon dress with Pearls and pumps! For Christmas….or…do you think by that time I spotted something new……

Well, my way is with a denim pencilskirt, black suede boots with a gold colored touch a simple black turtleneck and a gold colored necklace. And for a bit of fun a cat brooche. Do you love tweed jackets as much as I do?classic tweed jacketclassic tweed jacketclassic tweed jacketclassic tweed jacketclassic tweed jacketclassic tweed jacketclassic tweed jacketclassic tweed jacket

HOW TO WEAR A BEIGE CLOCK SKIRT STYLISH

How I wear a beige clock skirt

Beige always sounds so boring to me, but I love this beige clock skirt. Beige makes me think about wool long coats from the 70’s. And then I mean the fussy ones. Or to my favorite coat, the Burberry trenchcoat. From when I was in my twenties, I have said to myself that one day I wanted to purchase a Burberry trenchcoat. The classic one. Until I found out that the color looks very bad in my face. Another dream splashed! Lol. Well you can’t have it all! But beige isn’t a fussy boring color at all, so many other colors look good on beige. And it has something sophisticated, don’t you think so? Something chique! Well, I am not wearing this color in a fancy way. I am wearing it in Fall style, with Fall colors.

Again these colors?

I’ve worn this color scheme before on the blog not so long ago, but vice versa, apparently these colors attract me. I bought this skirt somewhere in August to wear it with a white blouse and white sneakers. I don’t think I have worn it that way, because or it was to warm or it was to cold (in my head) to wear a white blouse. Of course the lacing was the one I fell for this skirt. Don’t worry, it closes with a zipper at the back. But the part where the lacing is, is thickened as with a corset. That makes your waist so slim. I am wearing my over the knee boots from last year, they are ideal because of the heel. Very comfortable and still stylish. And they stay at the same place! A cameo brooche, some brown bracelets and a leave bracelet( to stay in the Fall sphere) and leave earrings.

LONG CARDIGAN & JOGGERS & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

I love to wear joggers. Is that very a-stylish?

I bought these joggers last year and showed you it ton sur ton and with a blazer. But I havn’t worn these that much. Several years ago I bought this pinstripe joggers and wore it quite often. I think joggers are easy to style stylish. However I can see these grey/off-white ones also be styled with a simple white tee and white sneakers. And then wear it in a baggy way. I also already ordered another pair, these black joggers. Aren’t they great?

Get style ideas from other bloggers!

If you read many blogs you also get a lot of ideas by other bloggers. I find it great fun to get inspired by others. This outfit I am wearing is inspired by another blogger. I almost only wear long cardigans over dresses. It is fun to style your clothing in a different way you’re used to. So I wear the pants here with a long cardigan and a floral top and light brown pumps. A green necklace that I like better worn as a bracelet and green earrings. And a little green bag. I love it when everything matches. I know a lot of women think that is so ,,thought of” but I love it! Because today’s items are all older, I put simular links under the pictures.
