Grey wide trousers

These trousers are very comfortable, which is something I appreciate more and more as I grow older.
I remember the times (seventies) when I laid flat on my back on the floor in a jeans shop with the shop assistent bending over me trying to get the zip up. Those jeans were so tight, that you saw the impressions of the trousers in your body.
These days have gone.

It was quite difficult to find the right shoes with these “harem trousers”. I found out by trial and error that I needed to show some flesh (of my feet). So no boots. Not too high heels etc. Finally I stumbled upon these flat shoes from Marithé et Francois Girbaud. They are a bit funny with a little flap on the nose of the shoe.
I got a few comments that the trousers were too long. When I look at other photos I agree with those comments. When I look at the trousers in real life or in the photos in this article, I don’t. What do you think?

I tried the trousers with several tops. The vest with flower pattern is nice, the white jacket is nice, but the green jacket with the slanting belt… no, a failure.




The green stone is periodot and the bracelet is in reality a watch.
You can open the top like a little lid and see the time.
Do you think it is dangerous to show jewellery on a blog?

    I struggled to start the blog, but do not stop now. Every time I open it, there is a new post, is a stress … 🙂 🙂 Just kidding, I love watching your proposals. I love the vest flowers, beautiful and goes well with the gray. This is the outfit that I like. I agree with you, the white jacket is beautiful, and not so much the green jacket. Really, harem pants do not like much, but you look good.

      I am glad you do. Getting respons is so nice for a starting blogger. It motivates so much.Having contributed to for nearly a year and looking at other blogs and leaving comments, has taught me that “keeping your customers satisfied” is a necessity. Which means: give your viewers something new to count on every day, so it becomes routine to check you out. That is rewarding your loyal follower.There is just so much I have to learn about blogging. Oh well… baby steps… one at a time.

      I like the wide trousers because they balance out my bodyshape. Had to laugh over your comment. Keep them coming.

    Funny, I liked the grey and green outfit best. I thought it was more streamlined, but what may not work of the jacket is the length ad the colour is gorgeous paired with two shades of grey.

      So many people, so many tastes. And you are right. It probably is the length. Had not seen that yet. The belt did not help either…

    You are fun, fabulous and true to your style.
    The wide trousers are just perfect with the pointed shoes.
    Love and sunshine, dear Greetje

      Thank you my dear… as spring is coming up, I can wear them again soon. The shoes turned out to be a treasure for these trousers.
