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.

FITTED BLOUSE WITH SHOULDER PADS & JACQUARD WOVEN TROUSERS & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

A blouse with shoulder pads…how do you feel about that?

I was actually happily surprised when I was wearing this blouse. I did not notice the shoulder pads when I ordered this one. I mean, when I see a trend for the second time mostly it doesn’t make me happy. Click here for some collections with shoulder pads. But it is elegant, stylish and gives the blouse a little more swoomph! But I think that if you’re wider in the shoulders, you don’t want them in your closet. Just like I don’t want straight trousers because I have no buttocks and thin legs. I look like an idiot whenever I try those trousers.

What about green and beige?

Beige is normally a color that I should not wear on the upper half. But this blouse with shoulder pads comes only in this color, I had to make a sacrifice. I loved it to much! The blouse has brackets on the front, just like a corset. And what about the trousers. I said it before, I don’t like trousers that much but with this one I just felt for the color. I’m not quite happy with the design of the trousers because it is a bit wider. And it also has got a high waist with folds, so it looks like you have eaten everything on the menu at the sushi restaurant.(which I could!) But it’s the color… A beautiful shade of green with a woven leaf print. I look like a wood, a wood in fall! Haha, I even matched my earrings!blouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsblouse with shoulder padsBlouse: here

SHOE TRENDS: UPCOMING SPRING ESSENTIALS

Shoe Trends: Upcoming Spring Essentials

Today I have Claire again as guest writer!

Remember that “Sex and the City” episode when Carrie was mugged? That was the episode where the probably the most iconic sentence was shouted: “Please sir, you can take my Fendi baguette, you can take my ring and watch, but you can’t take my Manolo Blahniks!” There is something about shoes that make us women feel super powerful, especially if our feet are “dressed” in the trendiest pair. To help you and your feet feel happy, here is a list of shoe trends for spring 2017.

Sock boots

Balenciaga went crazy with these on latest fashion shows. We have seen Rihanna rock their leather-velvet navy blues, and we admired those lime green ones as well as those square antelope leather ones. Besides Balenciaga, brands like Valentino and Celine also embraced this vibe. Not only do these cool boots look incredibly futuristic, they are also made of top-quality materials, since they have to be skintight. Not to mention that they are also comfortable as hell! You can find them in a wide range of styles and, while wearing them, you will feel like you have 2 layers of skin on your legs – which believe it or not, feels great!shoe trends

Wear them with:

You can copy Rihanna’s style and rock them with a striped button-down shirt and a mini denim skirt. They also go great with baggy jeans and oversized tops or crop tops – basically, they go with almost anything.

Flatforms

The trend that we thought will never see the sunlight again managed to come back once more. Platform sneakers or flatforms are among us, probably to remind us of the fashion of the ‘80s. People either hate them or adore them. Brands like Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci etc. really embraced these, and you can now find them in literally any color and pattern. Silver or black ones with white stars are probably the most popular choice.SHOE TRENDS

Wear them with:

If you decide to buy these, go all the way and combine them with eighties-like garments such as leggings and one-shoulder T-shirts. You go girl!

Glittery slip-on shoes

It is simple – many of us just don’t enjoy heels. That’s why slip-on shoes or ballet pumps will always be here for us. They are a great option when you want to be trendy, but want to avoid heels. Not to mention that they also got a glittery update now, so you will definitely stand out.shoe trends

Wear them with:

Since they are so girly-like, they will go great with those cute day dresses every woman must have. Also, you are free to wear them with your blouse, jacket and skinny jeans if you love that cute, college-girl vibe.

Kitten heels

Kitten heels were never this popular and cool. Kitten heels are basically shoes with super short and slender heels (from 1.5 inches to 1.75 inches), which became popular thanks to Audrey Hepburn. Even though many girls think of them as “granny heels”, check out what famous designers had done to them, like Celine – with their straps and ties, Dior – with their logoed version, and Miu Miu with their transparent flower details.shoe trends

Wear them with:

Since they are super elegant, they go great with business attire, but since it is the year 2017, who can forbid you to rock them with your boyfriend jeans and a bold tank top?

Athletic inspired boots

From all of those athleisure combinations, this is something that just had to happen, even though we didn’t expect it. Dior and Versace decided to launch boxer-like boots that, surprisingly, look incredibly cool and versatile. Versace and Maison Martin Margiela also followed this vibe, and as far as we can see, they are going to stay among us for a while.shoe trends

Wear them with:

Again, since it is the year 2017, your options are limitless, but try sticking to minimalistic and monochrome outfits since these boots are already over the top.

That would be it. What do you think about these trends? Let us know in the comments.

 dark brown short cardigan in tall bootsThe story behind these tall boots.

I am really very happy with these boots. I’ll tell you why. I had last year bought these boots. A nice quality suède and elastic at the top making them sank not a millimeter. But there was a big problem with these boots. I could not walk normally on them! Because of my lung disease I cannot walk on high heels anymore(it’s to exhausting) But these are not that high and the tread was wide. I don’t know what it is but I cannot walk on these. I look like a construction worker when I walk on it. They were good for only one thing: I was featured with these boots at Everything Just So! Well, I still wanted some other over the knee boots in brown suède. I came across these and there was some kind of discount week going on and I paid €30 for these. Is that a bargain or what! They have a block heel and are easy to walk on and they don’t sack either. I am very happy with these!

How I love to style my tall boots.

I never wear boots over pants. It might look good on others, it certainly doesn’t work for me at all. I think denim and brown combine great, it gives denim a more sturdy look I think. Perhaps it reminds me of cowboys……I have nothing to do with cowboys…..don’t even like westerns or country music! I digress. I wanted to wear this long cardigan with the jeans and the boots. This amazing leopard print blouse would look good on it too because of the colors, but the cardigan made the outfit look very pale. So I decided to wear a dark brown shorter cardigan over the pale one. Because the darker brown one is a bit to wide, I closed it on my back with the last button. I added some brown and gold colored bracelets in different materials and leave earrings, I also wore a leave bracelet. And a beautiful leather wrap belt. I really love this outfit and it is perfect for this cold weather because of all the layers. I hope you like my outfit too!myself in tall bootslight brown long cardigan in tall bootsblock heels in tall bootsleopard print blouse in tall bootsbrown boots in tall bootsbrown belt in tall bootsoutfit in tall bootsbracelets in tall bootsdenim skirt in tall boots

SHEER BOW BLOUSE & LEATHER PENCIL SKIRT LINKUP

Fancy Friday linkup is on at the bottom of the post!

I must say I never thought that there would ever join so many amazing women( and a male!) the Fancy Friday linkup. Every week it’s wonderful to see what will be on display for stunning outfits, fun stories and delicious recipes. I find it very nice to see every week who is the most viewed and hope that that person is as happy as I am when I’m being featured by another blogger. Thank you my faithful and new linkuppers!

Sheer bow blouse & leather pencil skirt.

We had a lovely late summer day here on Sunday in the Netherlands. It was around 19 degrees and the sun was shining. It was only one day, by the end of the week it will be 11 degrees. But we enjoyed the sun! I actually thought when I put on the blouse that maybe it was less translucent. But when I saw the pictures I thought, mm should I wear this. But I think a camisole underneath would be less nicer. And the fact that the bow is exactly on the right place saves the day. I love bow blouses, but as I stated here, this one is also not very convenient while cooking or eating for that matter. So this is actually a sit down and do nothing blouse. I also hope that I no longer will be tempted to buy more leather skirts. I can namely not wear them at home! We have a stark white leather couch! Wich is a shame because I love leather skirts and dresses. So this would be then a, straight out the door, skirt. Well I don’t  think this is going to be my favorite outfit. Too much hassle.

Skirt: mine was already sold out, I’m sorry, simular here

Blouse: old one, but fabulous one here

Peeptoes:  old, but simular here
