Styled by……….

Styled by…..tells the story behind someones style. What does a person tell by the way she or he is dressed?  What does it say about their personality? When did they began to create their own style?

Every first Tuesday of the month you will  find a post here with someone who tells about her or his style.  Do you also have a story to tell, please contact me via email.

This month tells Cynthia about her style!

Styled by…..Cynthia!

My name is Cynthia. I am 38 years old and now happy with myself. I have a blog, Een theelepel geluk, which makes me very happy. But what makes me most happiest are my daughters, my husband and other family. I am a real family in Styled by

I developed various styles over the years, I used to only love stylish and trendy. Today I also love a sportive look, Bohemian, country or sweet styles. I am a woman of many styles. This is my sporty look. I like to sport so a sporty outfit is nice too sometimes. It’s comfortable and still dressed with a tight leather jacket on it. Sneakers underneath and I am ready to go!Leather jacket in Styled by....sporty look in Styled by

It just depends what mood I am, but I tend the most to stylish. My clothing tells me that I am a neat and orderly person. And I think I radiate that I have got a gentle personality. I like to wear sweet lovely colors and prints like butterflies and flowers. I also like LOVE! In everything! I am LOVE! Haha. And I radiate that too.sweet prints in Styled by...Cynthia in Styled in Styled by.....sweet colors in Styled by....

What I think is important is that I wear what makes me happy. And that varies by day. So there are days that I prefer leggings and a sweater, but when I go out I’ll make sure my look is stylish. And I succeed!outfit in Styled Cynthis in Styled by....

You can’t see it in the pictures, but I find a delicious sent very important. Without it I feel bare and unfinished. They are my invisible clothes. I prefer to wear Chloé or Flower Bomb. That makes ne very happy!

Love Cynthia

Thank you dear Cynthia for sharing your style story! And have a great Birthday tomorrow!

Also Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood celebrate’s her Birthday on Wednesday!

I am finally showing my leopard print booties!

I showed you these already here but I hadn’t done a hole post with these  leopard print boots. They are a bit to big but with thick socks they are just fine, and I must say quite honestly that this is not the leopard print boots I had in mind, but of course those are not available. I would have preferred a more elegant boot with a queenie heel. But I have to say, these are quite comfortable. When we were taking these pictures it was really cold outside and I can see that back in the pictures. I had to jump and move like an idiot and pull funny faces or else I was turning a bit purple. Sigh, live of a fashionblogger is hard! I have showed everything I am wearing before here and here. The skinny jeans I don’t wear often because it’s quite low and I do not like that, but it’s a beautiful color olive green with a bit of a golden glow on it. The jacket is one of my favorites this season.

Leopard print can be styled with anything.

Earlier…..well I mean years and years ago, I wore quite often leopard print. I have always loved it. But then I was wearing, for example, a leopard print pencil skirt and the rest kept simple and black with no accesories. Today leopard print is often mixed with other prints. And I must say, I love it! I first mixed it here and I found this combination really super. I was inspired by other bloggers who mixed prints together. It’s so nice to experiment with your outfits, sometimes you can be really surprised. And that is what also makes blogging so much fun, to experiment with the clothes you have. And to get inspiration from other bloggers. I wear a brooche of a safety pin with blue in it, blue earrings and a green leather bracelet. I grabbed the belt from Gerben’s drawer, he has not even seen ! I like the hair band but of course it was only born out of necessity, I had a bad hair day! Gerben said that I only needed to put on an apron and a rag in my hand and then the picture was complete! Yeah….just shoot those damn pictures, I am dying of cold here!

A preview of the Styled By….series. Styled By ………Nancy

Tuesday is the premiere of the new Styled By….. series. I’m very curious what you will think about these series. If you want to join, take a look at the Styled By……… page in the menu. Today a preview of a post you could have seen before, but to give you an idea of what the meaning is. Enjoy ……and participate!

My style

My passion for fashion appparently started very early because my  grandparents told me long time ago a story: I was four years old and I could pick out some new shoes. And I just wanted black patent leather shoes! Nothing else. There you have it! When I was in my puberty(14) I began to develope my style. Not that I wore pencilskirts at that age, lol, but I began to love music that nobody else in  my environment loved. It started with The Cure, then Siouxie & the Banshees and more New Wave, hardrock and Punk. And if you loved this kind of music you wore black. So while friends wore colorful dresses, I wore black. Black clothes, big earrings, big hair! No scarves, necklaces, or brooches, just gold colored big earrings.

Hasn’t my style changed over the years?

Over the years my style changed into lots of pencilskirts and dresses. Always a bit fussy with a cool item( don’t know if that is correct), what I mean is a pencilskirt with a studded belt for example. That’s what I liked and still do. I sometimes wore gray or brown but my wardrobe concisted almost exclusively of black garments and golden accesories. Since blogging more color came into my wardrobe. And I like color now, but when I wear a black outfit I feel most myself. I still wear almost no accesories, often or larger earrings, or bracelets but almost never at the same time. In terms of shoes my tast stayed almost the same. I was and am fond of ankle boots and preferably with a nice heel, but because my lung capacity is not very big, I keep my heels not to high. And what does my style say about my personality? I don’t like a mess, I want everything clean and organised, I know exactly what I do and do not want, I have a strong will, I never walk away from a challenge, I’m not easily approachable( well, I am but people think I’m not!) and I’m not the easiest person to be with! Duh.


I hope to see you all next Tuesday for the kick off! Enjoy the rest of your day.

Fancy Friday linkup!

Wow, last week I was almost reached my goal of 100 linkups. There were 93! Amazing! We’re almost there, give it an extra push all together! Love you all for being so loyal!

Whining about nothing!

I had a real bad day yesterday. You know, an off day without a good reason. When I woke up there was nothing wrong, went sporting, everything was just fine. I had nothing else stand all afternoon and felt like an afternoon working on the blog. So I install myself in front of the laptop with some food and drinks, changed in something comfortable and get going. First answering the mail and then check all the blogs on new posts. And there it started. One after the other blogger was involved in nice collaborations with other bloggers and those who weren’t had great collaborations with interesting brands! Headache started to come and I got more and more frustrated. By the time I had checked all the blogposts and see who actually do not comment on my blog, I felt very said and insignificant, especially insignificant.

Why I let it be so important.

Why I let that affect me by others? Why is it so important to me that others respond to me, that others want to work with me, that I also get offers from businesses? At one point I was so sick of myself that I turned off the laptop and started cleaning up, emptied the dishwasher and played with the cats for a while. I said to myself: what a childish bitch you are! Just be happy for those bloggers! And what was I to complain anyway. I started blogging because I love to write and fashion is my passion. Is it not Nancy! Or do you let yourself influence suddenly by numbers? Oh no girl! Zen!

I never really had much confidence. Although since I found the niche in blogging and I better learn to accept my situation it’s getting better. But very rarely, I was unconsciously tired or something, I get influenced so that the confidence is crumbling a bit. It’s all human. I for one am already so far that I recognize it and end it. I can kick my ass and say: move on! I do things in my own way and that is a way I feel comfortable with. And I am proud of that!

I keep on breaking fashion rules!

Oops, I did it again! Lol! But seriously, I am breaking another fashion rule again! A few weeks ago I showed you an outfit in gray & brown and last week a totall white one. And now I am wearing brown and blue together. Well what can I say, I’ve always been a bit unruly. And often to honest. And they say honesty is the best policy, but it isn’t. Not to the outside world! But then there is also the difference between being honest or rude. Dutch people always need to have an opinion about something and want to express that everywhere. When I am abroad it strikes me how rude and unkind Dutch people can be( myself included!) also in bloggerland. My foreign readers and followers are always so kind and so supportive and helping me by giving tips that are really helpfull. Well I should definitely not everyone lump together because lately I met some real nice Dutch bloggers. But in general Dutch bloggers will not support you quickly and rather criticize then say something nice. But hey, I am Dutch too. And I am also the one who thinks she should express her opinion. And I am a very impulsive person and I also write impulsive. Well and then sometimes you have these situations where you think: that could have been done more tactful. Yes indeed, on the other hand, I don’t like it when people say one thing and do another. But I will count to ten and read my writings first! ( said that already so many times to myself)

Breaking fashion rules!

Oh common! I said it before, there are no fashion rules anymore! Blue and brown go great together! I have showed you this skirt here and now I have another way of wearing it. As a midi skirt. Isn’t this a versatile piece or what! I love my blue suède boots and because I hardly wear more then two colors in one outfit it was obvious to me to wear a blue sweater also. A denim blouse underneath and a necklace with blue beads. I like it like this although the skirt is very thin so a 50 denier tights would be better to wear underneath. So now I have showed you all the options of this skirt! Do you like this one? Please let me know. And just be brutal honest with me….I can handle that….I am Dutch! Lol.

Do you like this outfit better with tights or leather leggings?

I see many bloggers lately combine black with off-white. I’ve never been a fan of since it always did too much remind me of a waitress outfit. Yes yes, thirty years ago. But I’m lately already so much on trying, colors, prints, two prints! I thought I could add this one too. So I bought this blouse and did not really know how I would like to wear it. Well, exept of wearing it with a very cool pants and heels. And I will wear it like that, but I wanted to try the off-white/black trend.

How to wear black & off-white.

I bought this dress at the time I was still working, and got 50 % discount on all the clothes, and bought standard everything that was black. It’s a rather brave dress and I normally wear it with leather leggings to give it a tougher appearance. I think the Chelsea boots look good with this outfit. But it’s rather brave. The other outfit is with the leggings and other shoes. I put two pins on the scarf. Yes it is a scarf, you will see on the last picture, I had ordered a leopard print belt that hadn’t arrived yet! In my teens I loved these pins, think Sex Pistols. I own the necklace also for a long time but I think it is such a cute one. I must say that I like the outfit with the leggings the most, but I also think that wearing black and off-white isn’t that bad after all. But now I’m curious what you think![bctt tweet=”Tights or leather leggings?” username=”Nancys Fashion Style”]
