WINTER COAT & CHINO IN NAVY BLUE & RED & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

WINTER COAT & CHINO IN NAVY BLUE & RED & FANCY FRIDAY LINKUP

And I bought two chinos!

By the way, did you can see how beautifully the line of the sunbeam runs right along my leg. The sun was bullying a bit because I also see two light balls in a strange place on another photo. Well, the sun was shining in any case. There’s something to be said for that!

As most of you know, I do not like wearing trousers. I almost never like them, and I do not like most designs, and I’m not too fond of jeans either. But sometimes wearing a pair of pants is just a little more convenient. In the winter it is. I hate to grab the car for short distances. I love to drive a car, I like cars, but for short distance I think it’s nonsense. But to cycle in the winter, with a skirt or dress, is much too cold. Well a pair of jeans is very handy for cycling, but the only one I have is one that is distressed, or whatever you call that awful trend. Well, to say that that will stop the cold. No.

And to always want to be seen in my Pied de Poule culotte,( which is a warm one) no, not either. So you see it coming? I had to have a new pair of pants! Let me just say it differently. I saw the pants and I thought that it would be handy for cycling. And I see a pattern, maybe you can remember that last summer I also bought two skirts for on the bicycle! Have I ever cycled with it? No. Do I go cycling with these pants in Winter? No! …… you have seen that they are 7/8! So a piece of bare leg ….. in the winter …… not so convenient.

How I love to wear my chino

Okay, let’s talk about the outfit. So if I buy a pair of trousers it is never a long one. I always want them above the ankles, I find that much nicer with boots or heels. This is the navy blue one, I also bought a black one. The black one is to create a androgynous style, which I love on others, I also ordered a men’s tie.( or is a tie always a men’s item?) The navy one is also fun for spring with a striped sweater! For now I wear the same color cable sweater.

This winter coat fits perfectly with the navy and the color of my shirt. And the red in the coat also comes back in the red ankle boots. I love that. Symmetry, balance, etc. The blue earrings I have for ages, can’t even remember where they are from. And if you have not read Shelbee and mine The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book yet you can do so here, there are more fabulous Winter coats by other fashion lovers!chino The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Coatschinochinochinochinochino

    Nancy you look amazing in pants. Funny your story. You can wear this 7/8 pants with ” Stulpen” for cycling :))
    This coat is wonderful.

    I loved reading your excuses to buy new clothes Nancy. I think many of us fall for that (deliberately) now and then.

    I think the length of your trousers suits you very well and I love how your boots catch the eye. In my case 7/8 would be a bad choice…I have to do all I can to make my short legs look longer…

    Love, Lieske

    I don’t know why you don’t wear trousers more often Nancy, they look great on you! I’m admiring the lighting and the sunbeam. I like the light in winter, it’s easier than in summer, although a lot of people disagree.

    Nancy you look so great in dresses I can understand why you hardly reach for trousers! I like dresses but always reach for pants because they seem more comfortable and my lifestyle has become decidedly more casual! You look great though!

    It’s true…it’s such a shock to see you in pants. But you style them perfectly, and it’s nice to have the variety I always think.
    Of course, I wouldn’t be biking in those heels?? LOL!!!

    I hear you, Nancy! I’m not a fan of trousers either, and only wear them when the weather is truly horrible when we’re on holiday, and we still want to be outside. And my jeans I’m only wearing to do decorating jobs, Etc. I must admit that your chinos are a very elegant length and look great with your red booties. I also love that navy and navy coat, which is very chic. xxx

    I am also not much of a fan of trousers, Nancy, but when I do them, they have to be so perfect and so special. These ones you have on are very cute – I also like the cropped length. I nearly bought a pair of red booties like those last week!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Ha! I was just wondering last week if you ever wore pants…the answer is YES! You wear them so well. I have several very similar pairs of cropped dress trousers. Unfortunately, the are a little snug so I don’t wear them as often as I should. You always style everything and show it off with such pizzazz. Love your confidence and sense of fun.

    You can and should wear pants more often Nancy , they look so good on you. I agree the 7/8 is a good choice for you and shows off your great boots. The coat finishes your outfit perfectly.
    Still having trouble with your new link up – managed to get a link to this weeks photos but I couldn’t seem to get any further. I know this could be me, not very tech savy, have you any suggestions.
