Pink neon top in two combinations

One Wednesday I was out shopping with a girlfriend from my schooldays. First time the sun was out since a long, long time; lovely company and new spring clothes in the shop. An irresistable combination.

My friend is an outspoken person like me. A quality most of my friends have.LOL Anyway, my friend’s taste is somewhat different from mine. Not that we dress totally opposite, but she is more classic than I am.

We were in a nice shop and I got carried away:
yellow boyfriend jeans, striped sweater, lovely horizontally striped skirt and a neon pink blouse.

The blouse was meant to be worn on jeans which met the approval of my friend. The shop assistent turned out to be a qualified stylist and said it was totally S/S 2013 to wear the blouse in the skirt.
I tried it and was just thinking it was indeed a nice look when my friend called out from behind a rack with clothes: HIDEOUS!!!
I had to laugh so hard….How I love my friends and their honesty.
As you will see from these photos, it did not stop me from wearing it like this. We are all different people with different taste.

Those black skinnies…. I love them to death….


Below: I had to wear sunglasses as the sun was behind the camera and in my eyes.
The two photos below are for my next door neighbour girl (age 6 1/2). 
She lent me her necklace: pink glasses with a black mustache underneath it.

Oh, one more thing:.. last week, Trina had the scoop of a very similar skirt. Have a Teatime with Trina.

    I love the pink blouse is beautiful. I like the color and design. With jeans, as always, you look fantastic and looks great. But that striped skirt … I do not like, perhaps with another top, but with the pink blouse, no. In the photo of the skirt, I keep the necklace. Do not get upset by the comments. Pants, lovely, with the skirt, 🙁

      I don’t get upset dear Josep-Maria. Your comments only prove to me that you are honest in your opinions. And I value that above all. You like a lot of this outfit… That will do me fine. And I promise to find another top to go with the skirt. That will not be a problem.

    I love it tacked in with the stripe black and white skirt, yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    • 19 March 2013 / 23:49

      Thanks Sacramento. I like it a lot as well. One of my favourites. But with my black skinnies even more than with the skirt.

    I’m one of those outspoken kind of people too, is that how we became friends? haha. It’s one of the traits my daughter also inherited and her soft spoken, sweet husband is often times mortified at the things that come out of our mouths.
    First of all, I love the photo’s here, the change and the setting is so perfect for this post. Your fuscia blouse wins hands down! And I can see why you love your black skinnies, you look amazing in them. The best asset of the blouse is how versatile it can be. It’s ones of those ‘just throw me on’ items and poof your outift is ready to go. Its a perfect item on you. I also love you pencil skirt and I think the blouse looks just fine with it, but it does wonders for you with those skinnies. Thanks for linking up with me, you’re very kind. I”ll pay you back on a post about the way skinnies are meant to be worn.

      Totally agree with you. And please do not feel obliged. I link when and because there is a point in linking. And I don’t expect favours for it. However kind of you to say so.

    Oh Greetje, you look amazing!!!
    I love both ways to wear the blouse. A more casual way with the skinnies and soooooooooooo in and elegant with the stripped skirt.
    I just love that skirt and you have a figure that allows you to wear it.
    Thumbs up!!!!!!!!

      Hi Fernanda, you are still visiting me… how nice you make the time with all your hard work.
      Is it getting a bit better at the office?

    I am so glad that you bought black skinnies. Now a lot of your combinations with your jeans skinnies have a second possiblity. I like your blouse , no one can pass you by and can say oh I didn’t see you. When I put on my neon blouse and we are together they are going to call the fashion police, saying that we are causing eye damage. I bet your yellow tops and bag will go well on your skirt as well.

    • 20 March 2013 / 18:55

      Thanks for the tips Marianne. I will try it out. And yes, you and I both in our neon blouses together…. people would need sunglasses.

    • 20 March 2013 / 18:57

      Thanks Rosemary. Yes, it was so cute, my little nextdoor neighbour, running upstairs to fetch her necklace.
      I have to say that I am pretty chuffed with these outfits myself.

    Love, love, love the hot pink and stripe skirt

    • 21 March 2013 / 20:25

      Thanks Brett, I fell for it straight away. Did not need time to think.

  7. 21 March 2013 / 03:16

    Yay to “no fear of fashion!” Pink top, black skinnies, striped skirt….they ALL look fantastic on you!

  8. 21 March 2013 / 04:12

    How very chic! You look great in skinny jeans and I love the bright pink color on you.

    It’s great to have friends who feel comfortable with honest feedback. And yes, we are all different, which is the most fun of all.

    • 21 March 2013 / 20:27

      I try not to take myself to seriously in these “clothes matters”. And I know my friends love and respect me, so they can say anything. They don’t mean to hurt me at all.

    Okay – here is something I have NEVER said before – you look so fabulous in the skinny jeans with that pink top – I did not even notice what shoes you are wearing! And I always look at shoes first! So that is how amazing that outfit is. You look like a fashion model posing in the street – stopping traffic with your photo shoot. Very cool!
    I love the black and white skirt and it looks great with the pink top tucked in. That is truly a S/S13 outfit – right off the runways. The colors, the graphics, and the length of the skirt are perfect. I love both of these looks. Darn your long legs! I’d be stealing those pants but I think they would come up to my chin! LOL! This whole post has made me so happy – it looks like sunshine. 🙂

      Hi Suzanne, missed you a lot.
      Yes I was also amazed when I uploaded the photos to my computer. Was very pleased with my outfits (and I am not usually, how odd that may sound, it is true).
      This is truly emphasizing my best points haha.

    My favourite is definitely your first look!
    I just love the combination of a wider top and skinny trousers plus heels.
    It looks so fresh!

      Mine too. This is the look I am always after, but not always achieve.

  11. 23 March 2013 / 05:44

    Wow, lovely looks, Greetje! Really you! Flashy neon, bold stripes, and very cool on the black skinnies. Well done!!!

    • 23 March 2013 / 09:31

      Yep, very pleased with it myself. Definitely one of my best outfits.

    This pink top is the most versatile piece you could ever have in your closet Greetje….look how great it is in black pants & striped skirt! I could imagine a lot of looks in it already!!!


    • 23 March 2013 / 23:44

      I am so ready to wear this. But unlike your area, it is still very much winter here. Everybody is so fed up with it. Poor souls at the clothes shops… they will never get the spring collection sold in a month. And although I do my best, I cannot singlehandedly save them all. LOL

    two absolute thumbs up!!! I’d steal both of these looks from you and not change a thing! Didn’t even realize there was a whole pink look going on this week and Chloe has a pink top we share (we love bold colors) and I can only do pencil skirts. Plus, we love skinnies (as you may know). These just absolutely rock.
    Now about that sun and those ominous clouds… obviously the sun is shining bright on your model looks!!

      As the theme was pink, I immediately thought of this post. Although it is from spring last year, it is still current and I love both outfits too. So you are not having them.. hahaha.
      The sun has shown herself quite a bit these last few months but now it is the farmers turn… Pouring with rain. Doesn’t matter… good for the land.

    Looking good!!! Love the pink and the black jeans
