More combinations with a little white dress

White dress 14

In my first post of this little white dress, I showed you the dress 1) sleeveless and 2) with a green cardigan.
Because I will not wear sleeveless tops or dresses anymore, you will only find cardigans and a jacket with the dress in this article.

I find it a neglect in us, human beings, that we are not as happy with some things as we are sad for not having them. Does that make sense to you? Let me explain.
I never, ever, was happy with my smooth skin when I was younger. Having it, was just a fact of life.
NOT having a smooth skin anymore does bother me. Not so much that it makes me unhappy but I am very aware of it. Fortunately I am not alone, everybody gets wrinkles. So let’s smile and make the most of what we do have.

If I knew more about photographing, you would see more of the design of the dress. Now it is just one big white blotch. For your information: it is cotton.

Above and below:  thanks to blogging I came up with yellow shoes instead of white ones.

So many more tops and jackets can be worn with this dress. Why did I never try this before?

    Greetje, my stylish and wise friend; you are so right about some of the things that sometimes we take for granted and them as we aged we realized how good we had it. I’m with you on smiling my wrinkles away and on enjoying every part of my body even those that I’m not completely pleased with. As soon as they are working properly and as long as I can live a happy and productive life, I’m all about covering some parts and highlighting others.About this extraordinary outfit collection: I love: the red and yellow shoes, the black necklace in his shorter version, the higher tied cardigan version (makes you look sexy, mamacita!) and the jacket print.Have a lovely and happy Father’s Day with your husband,

    In my opinion that is one of your best picks! The white dress is classy and it goes very well with both the jacket and the cardigan.I have a similar dress in my closet… you have noticed something so truth about happiness and human being. As far as I’m concerned I have only recently learnt to look at myself with a friendly eye! ( now that I am almost 50! )

      One of my best picks… And it has been hanging there for three years…. What a shame.Glad you look at yourself more favourably. I certainly see you like that.

    I like the first combination the most because it is so out of the ordinary, especially in combination with the yellow shoes.

    • 14 June 2013 / 05:22

      I still cannot pick a favourite one. No wait a minute, the one in the first post with the green cardigan and my yellow belt is my favourite.

    Greete, all the outfits I like, but the first is wonderful, this jacket multicolor frame is wonderful and you is precious, forming a great outfit with LWD. Yellow shoes are also a great success, are the chic look. I really like the necklace in the last photo. By the way, your wrinkles are beautiful.

    I love that first outfit. That jacket over the white dress looks so pretty.

    • 14 June 2013 / 05:25

      I will let you in on a secret….. It rides up in wear. Which is a bit annoying.

  6. 14 June 2013 / 01:25

    All those combinations look good, and your shoes are so graceful and sexy!I wonder, since you’re so accepting of your wrinkles, why you won’t wear sleeveless clothes anymore. I don’t like my old lady arms, but I love the feel of the air on my skin, so I just accept that my skin is getting old and lumpy and wrinkly. Everyone else will just have to put up with the way it looks – I want to be comfortable. Of course, it’s everyone’s own choice.

      I am slowly moving into that direction Val. for now I am still too vain and want to highlight only my best parts.

    • 18 June 2013 / 00:17

      With my head I find Val’s approach healthy and confident. But I personally am more with Greetje at this moment. May I ask what you both think of Jessica Lange in this video. I remember seeing this on TV, and although I adore Jessica Lange, I was a bit shocked. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gbhr4MeN45w

    I love the litte white dress and all these combis are great but I really like the top combi. Very chic and unique!

    • 15 June 2013 / 09:59

      Thanks Sylvia. That top one is award winning, but followed by the rest at close distance.

    Greetje,I am pushing your last look to give this voting here a bit of a balance ;-)Love the knotted cardigan. Recently I have seen a lot of knotted blouses too and really like that style.I hope you will have a lot of sunshine this summer and you can wear this beautiful dress a lot!AnnetteLady of Style

    • 15 June 2013 / 10:01

      Oh good Annette, we need a bit of balance :-)And I did not know knotted was back in fashion. This cardigan is about 5 years old.

    Greetje, I absolutely love you LWD and you have done an amazing job of showing how versatile this can be. I agree with most everyone, that first combination with the checked cardigan is fabulous and very striking, and way to go with the yellow shoes. I also love the last look, a bit more carefree and casual. Have a wonderful weekend, my friend.

    • 15 June 2013 / 10:05

      This job on the LWD is my pride. I am not a good stylist and get a lot of help from others. But this one I have done all alone. The LWD and the combinations I made with my brown sheer skirt are my “achievements”. Getting better.

    • 16 June 2013 / 05:58

      What do you mean? You have always been a great stylist in my book. Yet, it’s quite easy when you’re as beautiful as you.

    • 16 June 2013 / 09:09

      Hahahahahahahaha….. You are killing me. Hahahaha. I know I am not ugly, but beautiful??? Hahaha. I don’t mind. If you want to see it that way, go right ahead.

    I love the first option the better. The pop of yellow is sooooooooo magic. Love your commnet, jejjeje. You are funny, honest and fun.XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    • 16 June 2013 / 16:31

      Thank you dear. I aim to have as much fun as possible. And I also have other, very annoying sides to my character haha.

    The plaid jacket looks so good with the crisp white dress and those wonderful bright yellow shoes, Greetje. White is so classy, the red looks good too- I like the red sweater and red shoe pairing but best of all the plaid jacket! I dare say it would match everything!

  14. 18 June 2013 / 00:12

    Funny how many people like the last look, since it is the only one that I like less. The cardigan is tied up too high for my taste. But for the rest…wonderful!
