Jeans, corn coloured T-shirt and a scarf

jeans, corn colour T-shirt and scarf 1
Why not add my “Go To” outfit to all the others on the internet? My GT outfit will always start with shoes. To be precise flat shoes, usually ballerinas (Tommy Hilfiger in this case).  Even though I hate flat shoes on me.
In my opinion high heels are not comfortable. Although they don’t give my any problems and I can walk on them all day in the office (on carpet!), they stay in the closet when I wander about the house or go into town for shopping. 

Jeans are my second item for a GT outfit as you can put anything on jeans. It will always look good. 
This corn coloured T-shirt is meant to be tucked in at one side according to the strange rules of fashion. It suits me (normal T-shirts never do), so I follow this rule gladly. The scarf is there because the T-shirt is a bit boring. Anne of Playing with scarves can be proud of me.

It was strange weather that day in the garden. The sun went “now you see me, now you don’t”. For photographing the “now you don’t” was much better. So after lots of over-exposed and under-exposed pictures I finally came up with a few decent ones.
To show you our garden and new shed I did not crop all photos. Isn’t the garden getting nice and green?

Below: this scarf is long and narrow, but I pinned it to my shirt. Usually there are a lot of pins in my clothes to keep everything in place.

That’s it.

    Greetje, I love your outfit, and can see why it is a go-to outfit! Ballerina flats are perfect and stylish walking shoes. I am so glad you did not fall in the water!
    XX, Elle

      Hang on Elle… is the correct phrase: “fall in the water”? Or “fall into the water”?
      (I need to brush up on my English.)
      Anyway I am glad too… to have stayed ashore haha.

    The girl who is always lovely with jeans! That you already know, I like you in jeans, but I like your outfit today. I love the oversize shirt is casual and youthful. The scarf I liked a lot, and I like it too, as you dress. Beautiful photos, your garden is gorgeous.

      It took me a while before I had the scarf in the right manner. Then I pinned it to the shirt so it would stay that way. I am glad you like it. Cannot always be a lady.

    A very well-done GT outfit, Greetje – and the scarf makes it dressy but still youthful.Thanks for sharing your great look with Visible Monday!

    Dearest Greetje,

    Of course I am “proud” of you. You wear scarves so well and I LOVE the combination jeans, ballerina shoes, tee and a scarf. Absolutely perfect! You were also very creative by pinning your scarf around your tee. Inspirational!
    Many thanks for referring your readers to the ANNE TOURAINE Paris™ web-store and blog. We have already shipped many silk scarves to the Netherlands and I am sure we will ship many more in the next future.
    Hugs and love,

    PS. Your yard is adorable and I am glad you didn’t fall in the pond 😉 😉 😉 Blogging is more risky than one would think…………

      I am glad you like it Anne. A compliment from the master of scarves sure makes me proud.

    such a comfortable, casual outfit,, I love it

      Thanjs Marla, you are such a faithful visiter. If ever an outfit of mine is not to your liking, don’t hesitate to say so. I can never please you all the time.

    One of my favorite outfits I’ve seen on you. Love how you styled your basic go to outfit to a higher level just by adding that beautiful scarf. Your garden looks beautiful as well.

    • Greetje
      13 August 2013 / 05:56

      You surprise me. Really? One of your favourite outfits? I could think of at least 20 outfits I like better haha.
      The garden is quite small, so I cannot host big garden parties. Which, in my book, is an advantage haha.

      • 20 August 2013 / 21:00

        I really do love this outfit, it’s such a great go-to outfit and yet so polished. You look great wearing flats with skinny jeans and you simply made this ensemble look very chic.

          Well, well, well…

    Your GT outfit is classy! I too tend to wear heels, but I like the flats on you and I’m in the process of getting comfortable with comfort.

    I love how you’ve worn your scarf. Very unique, soft and flattering!

    • Greetje

      The way I wear the scarf is born out of frustration. Scarves usually hang around my neck like a sad little creature. This time I nailed it (quite literally haha).

  8. 13 August 2013 / 15:24

    A casual outfit today! Ballerina shoes are a nice alternative to high heels, they always remember me an old movie ( Sabrina ) in which the actress looked lovable wearing them with skinny black pants…
    Sometimes it is good to wear confortable clothes , and they suit your body very well.
    Your garden has its own personality… I like it!

      How lovely can you put it.. “our garden has its own personality” haha. What do you mean with that?

      • 13 August 2013 / 21:41

        …I have seen many gardens very tidy, where plants and flowers can grow just in specific areas. They are often similar to each other. They look like painting. Your garden is different and I like to see flowers growing in a natural and unique way. ..

          Ahhh thank you. That is exactly how we want it.

    I don’t blame you for making that look a GO TO outfit….& how did u do that scarf or is it really made that way? It’s so cute!!!


    • Greetje

      No, it is very long. I just put it around me neck and turned and twisted it until it was this shape. Hid the ends within the layers and then pinned the scarf in several places to my top with safety pins (and one diamond pin haha).

  10. 15 August 2013 / 17:45

    (So sorry to be so slow with my VisMon comments … insane week!) Couldn’t miss saying how good it is to see your very classy go-to. Tickled that you admit to pins … a very good idea and bears mentioning! I often start with the shoes as well. As someone who loves my heels, I agree with you about their comfort levels. I’m just pleased that I can be happy in them most of the time, but don’t feel the slightest urge to slop around the house in them. Very cute little flats, and lucky you … they don’t make you look short. You rock anything that shows your great legs. Like these classic skinnies!
    And yes, do stay out of the pond, please. You look great in dry clothing.

      Hahaha, an old woman like me will never win a wet T-shirt contest.
      The jeans were straight but they fit so nicely (Not Your Daughter”s Jeans) that I had them altered to skinnies.

    This is a perfect GT outfit. Like you, I rarely wear heels on the weekend, I am always in flats or wedges and I rarely wear those at work. Some how in my mind, I’ve associated heels with work or date night. Your GT outfit is very similar to mine. Right now, it is starting to warm up in California so I am relying more on shorts.

      With us in the Netherlands it has been really warm but now it is sort of normal weather.
      I like being comfortable in the weekend.

    Ahhhh … here is the outfit featured on FABULOUS AFTER 40 online Fashion Magazine!!!
    It was fun being in it with you and RED TAG CHIC!!
