As this blog is about fashion AND fun, today I am not posting an outfit, but a drawing by my friend Anja.
I hope she keeps them coming as I love them.
So just for fun….:
First of all guys & girls, I have to slow down. At this pace, posting a new outfit every day, I will be exhausted soon and my marriage might suffer. Having a more than fulltime job, it is not easy to take photos, choose the right ones, adjust them to a better size and write articles. Every day. I have underestimated the task.
So …. how about every other day? Will you still follow me? I do hope so.
Today I will show you my purple brown tunic. I can wear it “up” with black trousers and high heeled boots. Or “down” with jeans and flat boots. I can wear it with a blouse of with a T-shirt.
I especially like the back of the tunic. Most things I do not like at the back, but this one…hmmm, nice.
High heels are my preference (always), but if I want to go shopping my flat boots are a better choice and the outfit will still look nice.
What is your ideal combination with this tunic?
Above left: I did not take into account I was wearing jeans with a big belt underneath the tunic, so the tummy part of the tunic is sticking out a little.
Photo above: black pearls sometimes look purple. The pearl in my ring is more purple than the necklace and the earrings.
You have already seen a close-up of my high heeled cognac boots on December 7, so I am only showing the flat ones.
Last year I bought this flower skirt, red jumper and white blouse at Max Mara. Perfect brand. Pricy but you get well-fitting clothes.
Red is my perfect colour and the shape of the skirt is flattering for me as it gives me a waist.
Finally used my new small black belt as well.
I used to only wear it the way I bought it due to lack of fantasy. And I wore it with a black beaded necklace.
Anja thought the necklace made it look too old fashioned. I remember this brooch (put on a string) and she asked me to wear just a black top underneath the jumper. (Not wearing a top underneath it would get me arrested.)
When you see the last photo you will see the wrinkles in my neck again….pfff. I so much want to photoshop it… I don’t but it is soooo ugly. For those readers who are a lot younger than I am: …this does not necessarily happen to you too when you get older. A lot depends on your genes.
I just have to accept it.
Now look at these photos below. You’d think that my posture is quite reasonable. But it is not. See the difference between left and right.
It is so difficult to improve your posture. You cannot remember to stand straight the whole day. Such a pity as it changes your looks SO MUCH.
Which combination do you prefer? With the white blouse? Or with the black top?
These brown jeans are proving to be a real treasure. I can wear nearly anything with them. Even my newly acquired lime-green jacket looks very nice on them.
Of course I am combining it with black again. Must have listened too long to Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black.
Really… I should be punished if I buy another black piece of clothing.
Nevertheless I would not have thought of putting this particular jacket on these jeans. Again it was lovely Anja who encouraged me to try it. I really like this outfit a lot. Even better than with the black (….oh..) sweater I bought with the jeans.
The last two pictures are about my cat and dog rather than the outfit. Included them just for fun.
Above picture: I know she looks skinny but she is really very healthy and in good condition. I have sent my husband to two different vets and a dog trainer to check whether she is not too skinny. Apparently not. She seems to have the condition of a 1 1/2 year old dog and she is 6. Her name is Charlie.
As I have said before you are going to see a lot of my grey boyfriend jacket. Because it took me so long to come up with a good combination for the jacket.
Here are 7 more photos of trying out different things. With jeans, with white trousers, with other tops, with flat shoes, with heels. I did find a combination which I quite like, but I am saving that for another post.
(It have to save some to be able to put an article on the blog every day.)
I also like the combinations in the first and the second photo. (The second one screams “NECKLACE” and I only have my yellow one which you will see in a next post.)
The rest of the trials I have dismissed as failures. Still contemplating whether I should have the jacket altered to waisted as Josep-Maria suggested in the first post of this jacket.
I look a bit like a surprised rabbit in the photo above haha.
