Playful trousers by SpijkerSISSpijker

Spijkers&Spijkers trousers 1

These trousers were advocated by my husband. Bought them myself this time. For a change. LOL
The brand is Spijker SIS Spijker, twin sisters who are also creating the brand Spijkers & Spijkers. Very successful Dutch designers. 

For those who are really early adopters, see their SIS Spring 2014 collection. Or their Autumn 2013/2014 collection (love the black blouse with the yellow dots).

Back to the trousers. My husband liked them very much and when they hit the sale, he “sold” them to me.
Did I need more summer trousers, after a summer filled with shopping? No definitely not. But I get weak at the knees when my husband appreciates a piece of clothing on me. If he likes it, I will buy it. He is never wrong. Many times he buys it for me, but that is not the issue. I like him to look at me and be proud. 

The white dots on the trousers are creating a playful cat and the colours are the different balls the cat is playing with. Unfortunately I forgot the pink cat brooch Anja gave me as a present. But I will wear it with these trousers. Especially on the black jacket. Although I prefer the trousers with the white jacket as that is just a bit longer.

It was not easy finding a top with these trousers. I knew from my tuxedo, I needed something fitted. While searching for a red fitted top, I found a LOT of new things, but no red top (typical….). So I stopped before I was even more skinned.
When I was writing this post and looked for the Spijker SIS Spijker-site, I found the trousers came with a MATCHING JACKET. Rats.. would not have minded that. Although… perhaps a bit much?

    The pants are beautiful, I love the pattern and color combination. My favorite combination is with dark jacket, I think it is more balanced and elegant. The yellow top is perfect.

      I would still prefer the jacket to be a little longer.

    I can just copy and paste Josep-Maria’s comment, Greetje. I also love the dark combination.
    And your sling pumps are awesome, jsut my type of shoes.

      As I said to Josep-Maria, I would prefer the jacket to be slightly longer (which I have not got).

    I go for the white tuxedo, I think you have a whole winter to wear the black jacket, and I like these pyjama pants combined with a fitted top. Your shoes are totally fashionable this winter, you see pointed shoes every where. The red top brings the outfit in balance.

      Yes, I am quite taken with the white jacket as well. Although I did like the matching jacket of SIS too. Just never found it anywhere.

      I willl have a look tomorrow. Exciting!!!!

    I am not a big fan of these trousers, nor of how they look on you. Too baggy for my taste. Sorry. Having said that I very much prefer the combo with the black jacket. And don’t fuss about the length. It looks fine!

    Tip: write it down every time you have an observation like this. Missing: a longer black jacket, a red top, etc. And have that list with you ( on your iphone or in your wallett) always.

      Great tip. It will probably tip me over the financial edge too hahaha. I know what you mean, in stead of buying new things that don’t match, buy stuf you “need”.

    Lovely trousers, although not always the easiest to combine. My preferred combi is with the black blazer too!

      For me the white jacket is better but it also depends whether it is high summer or fall. In summer the white jacket makes it lighter and the black jacket is too somber.

    Cool pants, I think I like them best with black. With the white jacket the eye sees the jacket first and with the black you highlight the print more. Lovely that your husband enjoys your clothing, so sweet.

      I agree with your observation about the white jacket, but I don’t mind the trousers to be the second surprise. I go for the total picture.
      The black jacket is a bit somber in summer. Then again it is great in fall. (Still a bit too short, but alas, I cannot keep on buying black jackets in every length haha.)

    Fabulous outfits, Greetje I love all the various looks! No wonder your husband is proud!!

      Thank you for hosting it. Every woman loves shoes, so this is a great new meeting place.

    I am loving those pants.

  11. 13 September 2013 / 20:27

    I like both jackets with your beautiful pants, and I find the black one has a length that is very nice on you. The yellow top is my favourite and. . .I love your sling back shoes:so chic!
    Sweet your dog who sometimes wants a room in your posts!!

      I think my black jacket might be better when I button it up higher. Makes more of a waist.

    Greetje, I love the printed pants, they look chic and comfortable. I think I prefer it with the darker jacket, but love all the variations!

      Most readers prefer the black jacket. For summer it was a bit too somber. But for fall it is alright. Especially if I button it up a bit more so my waist is more defined.

    These pants are so beautiful on you! I really like it with the white tuxedo blazer. Your husband has great taste. Glad he was able to sell these to you.

      Oh lovely, finally a fan of the white jacket with the trousers. Most readers vote for the black jacket, but I agree with you and prefer the white one.

    Great pants! So fun, and as you said, playful; therefore I would keep the look just that, playful and fun. I think the white tuxedo jacket does just that. In fact I would even wear those fun trousers with just a plain white tee and a bold red necklace, nothing wrong with playing up a fun pair of trousers. By the way, the length of your jacket is perfect in my opinion.

      My figure does not allow me to wear such trousers with just a white T-shirt. I need something fitted, covering my bum. But your suggestion is very good. I tried looking for a more simple red top. Dd not find it. Stopped that process as I bought too many other stuff along the way.
