Grey tunic with white trousers

This tunic is simpel but great. If it is hot, you wear it with a sleeveless top and open toe shoes. When it is cold, you wear it with a thicker sweater and normal shoes or even boots. Various possibilities with necklaces to change it around a bit.
The reflections in the window tell you that the garden is getting greener as spring is arriving

To begin with: the tunic with a red and black Japanese-like necklace and black slingbacks

Below: as usual, the back is very uninteresting.

Below: changing shoes to white patent leather peeptoe slingbacks and a necklace made from shells.

Of course… doggie is here too. 

Below: with one of my favourite necklaces, faceted white stones, gold(ish) beads and black thread. 

Below: zooming in on the necklaces. Could not get a good view of the white one, so I took another photo.


Below: or with ballerinas when walking a lot. This picture was taken in Kopenhagen 2 years ago.

A very observant person might have noticed that I have posted on a Monday instead of a Tuesday. Which is true and will stay this way.

    A very interesting outfit with an unusual piece. I like the tunic, the color and design. Combined with white pants is a very nice look. I like the necklaces, especially the latter.

      When I started reading I thought “interesting”??? Hmmm does that mean he doesn’t like it? But you say you do, so I am happy.

    Great outfit Greetje. Love it in all combinations but my favorite is with the red necklace! That cute little elephant has been all over the world. It was here in Singapore too….

      Thanks Sylvia. I have photos of me and my friend with at least 10 different elephants. It is such a great feature throughout a city.

    I like the tunic on you because you are tall but I believe that it would make me look like a little person if I dare to wear it.Well, back to the outfits; I prefer the contrast with the red necklace and the black. I also like it very much with the flats during your visit to Kopenhagen.Have a great week,

    • 28 May 2013 / 08:19

      It is indeed one of the few outfits I actually like with flats (I hate flat shoes on me).

    It is interesting because it’s not just straight and plain. I like the loose neck and the way it gathers around the bottom.

      Thanks Val. For a long time I was not so sure about this tunic, but Anja convinced me it is OK.

    Very cute tunic GreetJe. I love the last photo! And you look the same as you did 2 years ago!! What’s your secret?

    • 28 May 2013 / 08:14

      My secret is: enough distance between me and the camera and the same hairstyle. LOL

      Hi Greetje to be honest: sorry I don’t like the tunic, it looks like a ‘summer parka coat’. Your good figure disappears. The combination of the colours grey and white are oke as well as the necklaces, the red one I like most. I hope I don’t upset you….with love Helena

      It takes a lot more to upset me Helena. LOL I appreciate your honesty very much. It is not my best outfit I grant you that, but I don’t think my figure disappears completely. It is an easy thing and very handy when you travel.

    The tunic is very stylish, Greetje and I like that you sticked to the two colours. Lovely clean chic, I really like that on you! AnnetteLady of Style

      Fortunately you like me to stick to two colours (and a little third colour sometimes). As I don’t really know how to add a forth colour haha.

    I have noticed the different day since I use to rceive your post on Tuesday. The tunic is peculiar and nice and goes well with white pants. Your dog is interested in what you are doing and wants to have a part in it. How cute!Your last necklace is my favourite:is it the one you bought in Rome?

  8. 28 May 2013 / 16:59

    I used the word “interesting” as a synonym for unusual. I like it, if it were not so I would tell you, you already know that.

  9. 28 May 2013 / 20:33

    I would agree with Josep-Maria, I like the uniqueness of the tunic, especially the design and cut in the back. Great way to wear it as a spring transition with white. I prefer it best with the white shoes and all three of your necklaces are a great choice. My favorite is probably the shell one, just that little added contrast seems please the eye the best.

    • 28 May 2013 / 21:58

      So many people so many preferences. Don’t you love all the diversity?

  10. 28 May 2013 / 21:48

  13. 29 May 2013 / 05:14

    The versatile tunic has lovely details and looks great with white. Which is a color I would like to wear more of, so your photos are an inspiration to me today. You have a beautiful collection of necklaces!

    I like all 3 versions but the red necklace really appeals to me. I agree that you have some stunning necklaces. They are my favorite accessory.

    • 29 May 2013 / 17:13

      I don’t see you wearing a lot of necklaces though. Or do you mean, favourite with me?

  15. 30 May 2013 / 02:35

    I love this outfit. The top is so very unique, but complements the pants very well. I could see me wearing that top. Love the top pic with you sitting so regally in the chair..xo
