White boyfriend jeans with two jackets: green and black&white

Anja is back in The Netherlands, and I can often twist her arm to take photographs of me. Which makes nicer pictures than me and my remote in the garden. Also…. if you smile at a human being, your smile is much more real than when you smile at a fence (behind the camera). Sometimes my husband pulls funny faces to make me laugh but I can never use those photographs as I look like a (laughing) hyena on them.

This time we went to a pub called The coat of arms of Kennemerland, referring to the district we are in. But everybody calls it: The stinking bucket. No idea why; we couldn’t smell anything.

At the side of the pub there is a lovely terrace with a view over pastures with a small forest at the end.
This day the sun decided to come out. How lucky can you get!! We are now at the end of May and still have not seen more than 3 days of warmth and sunshine in this country. Everybody is moaning.

I hesitated whether I should only use the photos with the green jacket and save the ones with the black&white jacket for another post. However, I have already planned another article with these boyfriend jeans as we shot many different combinations. (You can have too much of a good thing. Or not?)
Besides you already saw the black&white jacket last Tuesday in my Paris article, combined with my boyfriend jeans and brogues.
The jackets and shoes were easily changed without upsetting the other guests on the terrace. Changing trousers or top would have been a different story haha.




Although sunny… also windy.


My green bag, bought in Rome last year. A bit of a different green, but I decided it was OK.

Below and above: my lovey red shopper, also bought in Rome last year.
Both jackets are by Irie Wash, apparently a French make. You just bung it in the washing machine, hang it up to dry and voilà…. ready to wear.

    Greetje, this look is gorgeous!
    Even though you can basically pair white with every colour, I prefer the first look because the green jacket is better for spring (which spring… I know, same dreadful weather here) than the darker one which I feel is a bit more suitable for autumn.

    I prefer white or creme trousers in a wider cut than I would wear darker colours and therefore really like these boyfriend jeans!

    And of course you know that I love your necklace 🙂

    I like white jeans and I find they are good with almost everything. I don’t use jeans because I find they are not good on me,but your look works well on you. The black and white jacket is beautiful and my favourite bag is the red one…

      Jeans and me… it is a good combination. The red bag I bought at Materie in Rome. Such a nice shop.

    I am loving both of these bags
    Great colors and shapes

    Yes to bf jeans, Greetje! You know how much I adore anything with jeans. Your photos are GREAT! The background is beautiful and I’m glad you got a little sunshine.
    The green jacket w/the bold necklace is really nice, but I’m loving the black jacket, opened with sleeves rolled up the best!
    Tre chic!

    What a beautiful background for your outfits. I like the green outfit a little more – it just looks more relaxed. The other outfit is great too and something I would wear but probably more business settings. Isn’t it funny how slight changes dramatically changes an outfit. And I am drooling over your red patent shopper – such a perfect touch to this outfit!


    • 24 May 2013 / 09:58

      I saw the red shopper in the same shop as my big bulky green necklace. Could not choose, so I did what I usually do: I bought them both. Never regreted it.

    Great post, Greetje. All the looks are wonderful and very flattering, so well done!

  7. 24 May 2013 / 16:47

    I love your sense of humor. And I love your style, you know. Also today I love the photos are gorgeous and the setting is fantastic. I already mentioned that twedd jacket I really like, is precious. The green jacket is too, both outfits are gorgeous. I love both bags, red is a marvel. And the pants? As always. You’re the best dressed girl pants. I see you changed your jacket, to avoid disturbing the other customers, but and the shoes? Nobody noticed your feet? LOL

    Love your phot’s and background choices. Greetje, you look amazing in those bf jeans, and to look so tiny in white jeans (how do you manage this?). I love, love, love you first photo, its so natural looking and shows off this outfit perfectly. Great choice on the necklace (in fact I think that’s one I need to borrow). And, you red shopper, WOW!

  9. 24 May 2013 / 17:59

    You look smashing.!!! They all look great. But, I love, love the top one. I think i’m gonna take a page out of your book to dress up my white pants. Great job. Love the scenery at the top also.

    Thank you. I like them a lot and thanks to Anja they are properly documented.

    People in the Netherlands don’t get excited over shoe changing LOL.And actually the black and white jacket might look like tweed, it is not. It is very thin material with a tweed print.

  12. 24 May 2013 / 22:44

    Yes, nice those pastures, aren’t they? The necklace was a case of seeing and grabbing. It was not even expensive to begin with, but on sale as well. There is a buddah in the middle.

    Nice if we can inspire each other. I learned so much from other bloggers as yourself.

  14. 25 May 2013 / 05:25

    Greetje, you look radiant with your green jacket and all of that greenery around you.The green bag and the red shopper are gorgeous and black and white jacket outfit is very city-chic.

    There is my jacket girl again. Nothing can go wrong there. You have to keep Anja in Holland, you make a great couple, working girls to the max.I love green so I always go for green if I have to choose. And I am in love with your green bag. Next trip for your birthday is probably Rome again.

    • 25 May 2013 / 19:28

      Ah.. Rome was the most expensive trips of them all, so probably not.And keeping Anja in Holland is impossible. She will go where her love is.

    Gorgeous Greetje! You always look great in your jeans and jackets. The weather in the UK has been dreadful too. Sunny today but still not very warm. Everyone here is also complaining and it is so difficult to know what to wear! 🙂 Marie S

      I am with you Marie. I don’t think there are going to be days enough to wear all of my summer clothes. BUMMER

    I’ve been wearing my white jeans a lot recently too. Love the look on you!

  18. 27 May 2013 / 20:55

    White boyfriend jeans and you make a great couple- I hope you never break up.

  19. 11 June 2013 / 16:59

    I hope you’ll keep an eye out on my blog later today. I’ll be featuring this as one of the looks I love today.Terryhttp://terrystwocents.tumblr.com
