My new wide black midi skirt.

Do you have that sometimes. That you bought something new, like my wide midi skirt, and you don’t want to wear it! As if the magic then is broken….or something like that. Celina, for example, hasn’t got that at all! When she buys something new, she will wear it the next day. Is this weird of me or do you have the same? I’m curious.

So this wide midi skirt I had seen a while back ago, and I first put it on my wishlist. Just to see if I would like it a week later. I thought I liked the brown one better but I ended up buying the black one. But weeks later I still hadn’t worn it yet. Weird huh. While it is truly such a stunning skirt, the fabric is quite heavy, I like that, and it is slightly shiny. The lenght is good and it’s also quite high on the waist, which is good for me because I have a fairly long upper body. So why don’t I wear it right away? I really do not know! I wore it for the first time on Boxing day!

How I style the wide skirt.

I don’t like to wear something over the skirt because of the high waist. So a sweater or blouse in it or a very short top or cardigan. I bought this cardigan last year around this time with a dress. The dress did not fit and I sent it back, but I kept the cardigan because of the beautiful color. Guess what…….never wore it. Because I didn’t think it looked good on anything. I am going, from now on, to wear this skirt a lot with a black top or blouse. But for the picture I chose this cardigan, the lenght is just right. I have told you before were my love for socks in shoes suddenly comes from and here I wear silver glitter socks. I like the matching glitter in the leopard bracelet(you know the one from the giveaway) and the silver buckle of the skirt.

Talking about that giveaway: I have sent two messages to the winner and I got no respond, so I still have the bracelet and I really want to give it away. So I have no experience with this, this was my first giveaway, and I could use some help from you. Should I do another giveaway or do you have a better idea? Please let me know!

    First off—I always try to wear my new stuff right away! Otherwise I find that I forget about it because it’s new!!
    This skirt is just gorgeous on you Nancy!! Like it was made for you!!
    As for the contest winner….can you go back to the original entries and pick another one? Either that or you can send it to me? Ha ha!!

      Haha, yes I could do that! I can go back to the original entries but I put some time into picking someone, writing down all your linkup numbers, filmed it and then the one doesn t respond! I mean, I asked to leave a comment of a person wanted to linkup but wasn t interrested in the bracelet! Oh well, it s not the end of the world right! And I feel like this skirt was made for me!

    Nancy, I’m loving that skirt and how cool that you bought that cardigan a while ago and you never wore it. It was as if the sweater was waiting for the skirt! Sometimes, I will wear a new thing right away, but sometimes if I get it at the end of a season, I put it away until the next season and then when I take it out, I think, “Oh wow! I have something new to wear!” Ha, ha. You look lovely! Maybe try to contact the person one more time, then go back and pick another winner…or if you can’t do that, have a new give away! – Amy

      Yes, the cardigan is perfect for the skirt right? Although I am not a big fan of green and black! It s to Christmas like! Thank you for your comment!

    I love the design of your skirt! And I really like the color combination of the look.

    • January 10, 2017 / 8:43 am

      Thank you Josep! I love this skirt, it feels like I designed it myself! I miss you on IG!

    Oh, I love the skirt!

    • January 10, 2017 / 12:52 pm

      Thank you!

    That is one great skirt! And really accentuates your waist. I love it!

    The skirt is gorgeous! I love the high waist and the belt, it’s very flattering. It can make choosing a top tricky though, as you say. I tend to stick to fitted/bodycon tops with a high-waisted skirt. The green cardigan is perfect for it and I love the shoes/sock combo! Thanks so much for joining in my first link up 🙂

      Thanks Gemma!

      Thank you Ashley!

    That skirt and cardigan were made for each other! Glad you finally wore both of them!

    • January 10, 2017 / 10:16 pm

      Ha ha, yes finally 🙂 🙂

    • January 10, 2017 / 10:41 pm

      Thank you very much!

    That skirt is gorgeous. You need to wear it more now. It looks great with the cardigan. I think cropped or tucked in blouses/tops/cardigans would work well with this style skirt.


    • January 11, 2017 / 8:48 am

      I think so too, and I will wear it more often now.

      I’m glad you like it 🙂 🙂

    I like wearing what I buy immediately! But, when I buy at the end of the season sales, sometimes have to wait the following year…
    Your new skirt fits you perfectly and you have matched a delightful short cardigan to it…
    I am a fan of socks too and glad to hear that…you are in the group!! 🙂

    • January 11, 2017 / 8:50 am

      Ha ha, yeah! I now want to buy a pair off leopard print socks to wear in black sandals!

    • January 11, 2017 / 11:09 am

      Thanks! I love green, for a few years ago I only wore black!

  12. January 11, 2017 / 1:43 pm

    Jammer dat je het niet zo vaak draagt. Gelukkig vanaf nu wel. Ik draag vaak niet het kleding stuk dat ik erg mooi vind, omdat ik bang ben dat ik hem oude maak.. stom hihi

    • January 11, 2017 / 5:01 pm

      Ja dat heb ik dus ook! Ha ha, stom he.

    • January 11, 2017 / 5:01 pm

      It’s a great one isn’t it!

    • January 11, 2017 / 5:56 pm

      Thank you dear!

    • January 12, 2017 / 1:55 pm

      Thank you!

    • January 12, 2017 / 4:26 pm

      Thank you very much dear Ashley! Have a great day! 🙂

    • January 12, 2017 / 5:29 pm

      Thank you Jess! I have to wear new clothes straight away, it is such a stupid thing off me.

  13. January 12, 2017 / 5:08 pm

    Wat een gave rok! Vaker dragen! Staat je goed!

      Ha ha ha, toen ik nog werkte vroegen ze weleens of ik op de bezem naar het werk was gekomen!!

  14. January 12, 2017 / 6:43 pm

    I know exactly what you mean Nancy! I have clothes in my closet that I have not worn as yet! You look lovely in the black skirt! Love the booties!

    I am so into midi skirts right now, but I only have a couple. This skirt is so cute, I love that wide belt on it, too!


    • January 12, 2017 / 7:52 pm

      I love midi skirts, always have .
