Fur jacket with boyfriend jeans and 3 coloured booties

This fur lined jacket is for really cold weather and it was snowing, so…. As this is the year of new combinations, I decided to try something new with the jacket. You have seen this fur jacket with my charcoal skirt and I explained then it could get very hot. And it also rides up in wear. Very annoying.

Combining the jacket with the boyfriend jeans I could leave it open. Less hot and no more pulling down.
The red T-shirt underneath it gives me some colour and of course my new 3 coloured booties fit this picture perfectly.
A lot of photos look alike. I could not choose. Sorry.

Do you like this combination?

My back will never be my best part, but so be it.

    I really love this proposal. I told you last time that the jacket was beautiful. Now with this combination of jeans and red is perfect with a casual look and courageous. Youth is a proposal that is perfect with these boots, they are beautiful.

    Really nice look! Youthful and casual. It looked great with the skirt too. Marie S

    It is so rewarding to try and find a new combination. I never did that before. But thanks to blogging I am getting better and better at it.

      Glad you don’t mind. I find honesty works well. You know if I do give compliments, that they are sincere. Hope you do the same with me.

    Love this combination! The red and green work well together, and the booties are gorgeous. If I looked that good in jeans, I would probably wear jeans. However, I look like a snake that ate an egg and is still digesting it!Great outfit!Cheers from England,Rosemary from http://www.foreveronthecatwalkoflife.blogspot.com

      hahahaha, this is funny, a snake that ate an egg and is still digesting it. Thanks for the laugh. But kidding aside, most things can be hidden. I look like a Y, broad shoulders, no bum and no hips. There are lots of ways to hide that. But perhaps that is easy.

    Clever you , this is a very nice and unexpected combination. I like this colour of red it is very warm, and I like it when the top is longer at the back, it covers up a lot of things.

    Great combination, and those booties, O’ those booties (they are statement perfect)! You do look wonderful in jeans, which is hard for women our age to pull off.

      yes, that is a bonus for me. Lots of wrinkles is a downside of growing older, but jeans are still fine.

    Dear Greetje – You have so many beautiful clothes but this is truly one of my most favorite looks of everything you have ever posted here or on 40+Style. Each item fits you perfectly and the outfit is very youthful and fun. The red top shows off the jacket and those boots are amazing. All of your boots are lovely but these are the best. You must give your darling husband a big hug (from me!) for buying them for you. :)I got your sweet message from Sylvia’s Blog but I feel safer answering it here. I can truly picture all of us in your “garden” sipping wine (or maybe champagne in honor of Anja) and laughing and talking for days but I won’t be traveling anywhere this Summer. A very close friend was diagnosedwith a serious cancer last week (the same kind that took my dad’s life) and my hubby and I are dedicated to looking after this family and helping in any way we can. Plus, we just found out we have to buy both of our children new cars in the next few months. My daughter was the victim of a hit and run and the body shop has her car up and running to get her through the rest of Winter but she has to have a safer car to get to her job as a trauma nurse. And my son has a big job offer and will have to have a more reliable car by Summer too. He has a sports car but it is not good on wet or icy roads and that is all we have now. A young man was killed in an accident very close to my home on Tuesday and today there was a 30 car crash close to my son and 2 small children lost their lives and 20 more people are in the hospital. We have to get our children the safest vehicles we can. But I dream of your garden and know I will be there one day. I promise!Suzanne

      Sorry to read about the illness of your friend Suzanne. I hope she will be able to recover…Some day hopefully we can get together…. I’m sure I will see Greetje and Anja and perhaps Marianne too and we will drink an extra glass of champagne in your honour.

      Oh Suzanne, what horrible things happening in your life. How life can change overnight. So nice of you and your husband to take care of your friends family. I fully understand you cannot come over. Of course you cannot. Hopefully there will be other times. You are always welcome.And as far as your children and their cars are concerned… it will be serious money but if it is within your reach you will help them. I understand you want to do everything you can to keep them safe.Stil, cars can be fixed and replaced. Your friend’s health is an entirely different matter.

      Life really can be difficult at times and so much of it is beyond our control. But I count my blessings every day and am so grateful that I have enough to take care of my family and to share with others. And I am very happy to have all of you – Sylvia and Greetje and Anja and Marianne and Rita (somehow we need to get her to attend our party too!)to laugh with. You are often my sunshine on the darkest days. 🙂 I truly appreciate your friendship.Suzanne

      I’d say… the more the merrier. Rita our engineer is welcome.

    Or bottle green. Try a higher neckline or a chunky necklace at your throat (but not too tight that it chokes you!) Patski x

      Bottle green is one of my favourite colours. But once again… I don’t have a sweater in that colour. Very hard to get by in the shops. If they do have green it is always the wrong colour green (with too much blue in it.)I see what you mean with the higher neckline. But I think a chunky necklace is not the solution. Would be too much. The jacket and booties are very powerful focus points. Better look for a sweater with a higher neckline.

    I like the combination, but I think the red top should have been rust or gold coloured. Patski

    • 2 February 2013 / 00:23

      I don’t have rust or gold. I did have red. Thought it went well with the boots and gave a nice contrast. Lovely to see you are still looking at my little blog. I know it is not your thing. So double thanks.
