Green coated skinnies, an Acne tunic and grey leather booties

Green coated skinnies with cream tunic 2These coated skinnies prove to be such a good choice. Two weeks ago I showed you the trousers with a black sweater. Today with this Acne cream tunic. I told you that Alexandra and I “did” three shoots. Which means you are going to be bored to death with these skinnies. LOL

There were lots of dogs with their owners in the park and I spotted this pug (just for you Susanne Carillo). So cute! I kneeled down to pet the dog, totally forgetting it had been a soggy morning… The pug lovingly put his paws on my cream tunic. “No panic”, Alexandra said, “I will get that stain out in no time with lightroom”. And she did. As I did with detergent as soon as I got home. Both are perfect solutions for one problem.Green coated skinnies with cream tunicThis tunic is really for spring. I did 7 outfits with this tunic for spring !! ( Well…. really only one outfit with 7 scarfs/necklaces). As I did not have a cream coloured top for the trousers, I used this Acne top and put on a T-shirt underneath it in the same shade of green and bingo, we have a fall/winter outfit.

The necklace is a bit of a mistake. It is really pretty and modern, made by Angela Caputi, but I use necklaces to brighten up tops in colours that do not suit me, like this one. Therefore the necklace should have been in a bright colour near my face, like the big green Angela Caputi necklace I wore in my post with the little black dress (third picture). But no, I bought this one with a lot of black near my face. Not a bright necklace, not a bright idea, not a very bright woman. Green coated skinnies with cream tunic 6Above: can you see that my nose is a bit red from the cold?

Green coated skinnies with cream tunic 3Below: my much loved grey booties from Max Mara. They blend with green and grey and brown. Very versatile booties. I do have green booties, but they are the wrong shade.Green coated skinnies with cream tunic 4Below: this picture clearly indicates that Alexandra and I still have to find out each others preferences. She looks at photos from an art point of view. I only think “I look like a dork”. But I don’t mind sharing it with you. You know how much I like to make you laugh.Green coated skinnies with cream tunic 8Next week you will see something else but the green skinnies. I will keep the third shoot for later. Just prepare yourself: I also have them in burgundy 😆  

No Fear of Fashion

    Greetje, you look Stunning with a capital “S”
    The tunic, the skinnies, the necklace…everything. You look like a native New Yorker 🙂

      Amsterdam and New York are very alike (always buzzing). Just on a different scale. I love Amsterdam and I love New York. (Been there twice, which is too little.)

    You can’t have enough skinnies these day, so before they go out of fashion and we have to wear wide trousers again, we have to save up some. I like your Acne tunic but not in this time of the year I prefer other sweaters to wear on them. In summer you are more tanned so the colour suits you better.

      You are right Marianne. And I have found a cream sweater for winter. Still a dangerous colour for me but a bit more creamy than this Acne tunic. And creamy is better. Ron bought it for me…..

    Sometimes art is just a whole lot of dorkness all squished together. I like your art shot. But I like how the two of you push each other’s envelopes.
    The tunic is a favourite piece. With those skinnies you look tall as a tree. I like the heavy neckpiece with this – it adds a strong bohemian flair. But the link to the other one would look great too. One can never do too many fun photo shoots. Glad the pug signature came out!

      Alexandra has a good eye. We did another shoot yesterday and if she says: don’t wear that belt (another belt-case) then I don’t. On the other hand if she starts taking photos from a low stand I tell her what will happen (I look hideous in pictures with a camera looking up).
      So yes, perhaps that is pushing each other’s envelopes. We are having fun.

    You’re so darn sexy!! Totally loving everything about this outfit! I want that top. Awesome!!

      23 December 2013 / 22:27

      hahaha, not believing a word of your “sexy”, but it is a lot nicer comment than to hear “you look ugly” which happened to me a couple of times in my life. I think I still have a sore spot because of those incidents. On the other hand I have a soul like a rubber ball.

      • 23 December 2013 / 22:32

        Whoever told you that is an a** for sure!! Believe me, that’s such a great look on your slim frame. Words have such power. Glad that you brush it off….xoxo

      My goodness, that is quite a compliment. Did not see that coming. Thank you.

    Looking amazing dear!!!
    So elegant and with such a envy figure.

    Merry Christmas.

    I find you have a special style, and today’s outfit is very you! I like your modern way to combine clothes and accessories, and the necklace goes well with your outfit. Sometimes me too, have the sensation that black is a too severe colour, but , no , your necklace isn’t too dark! (so , use it again in future! )
    ( Talking about necklaces, chances are that in a shop where I asked, they
    will sell in spring plastic red necklaces like the yellow one you bought in Rome!)
    I have noticed that you said no words about Christmas…in any case I would like to wish you a wonderful, Merry Christmas ! :- )

    • Greetje
      24 December 2013 / 06:27

      I know… Isn’t terrible? No Merry Christmas wishes on my blog at all. I am ashamed. Of course I wish you everything nice and warm this Christmas and I hope to meet you next next.

      • 26 December 2013 / 09:35

        I think that your blog is perfect just as it is! I like you for many reasons but also because everything you do is very you…(it’s so wonderful that in the world people are different!!)
        Meeting you in real life is at the top of my desires at the moment, so let’s hope!!

          No problem, we can make that happen. By the way, when is the winter collection in the Max Mara outlet?

    This is a great post Greetje. I love you in this type of coated jean, keep them coming. I also agree with Dan the necklace is perfect. You wear this style of top beautifully so chic and artistic. I’ve always wished I could wear this type of thing but I’m too short. Beautifully done post.

    Merry Christmas! It has been fun to get to know you through your blog. You seem like such a fun lady that I would like to have as a neighbor and friend!

      Merry Christmas to you too Ann and I could pay you the same compliments. I have to say I am pretty thoughtless: I did not even wish everybody Merry Christmas in this post haha. My mind has a strange way of focussing sometimes.
      And I still wish you could come over next year. Too bad but I understand.
      Blogging is fun but the sad thing is, you get to know great people and they are continents away. That was different in the old days.
      Hope 2014 brings you nothing but happiness.

    I like tunics, especially and I have one or two and also recently bought an oversized sweater but I don’t feel they are “me” and now they are hanging in my closet…
    They suit you very well though and of course the chunky necklace is a must with this look 😉
    I certainly won’t get tired of your coated skinnies and they look fabulous with your booties!

      It was you who inspired me to buy the necklace. You suggested that when I showed my summer versions. And it is a pity you live so far away. I might have bought the tunics from you.

  12. 27 December 2013 / 21:43

    Great to see you found another look for this amazing tunic. it is still one of my favorite pieces on you and I love the combination with these skinnies and your fabulous booties.

    So Greetje, I will beg to differ! I will not tire of these coated skinnies, in fact I love to see how you styled them differently. I adore the Acne tunic ( and love Acne as a brand) and think the color palette and styles look so amazing on you ( shows off those great legs!)

    Love this tunic sweater Greetje! I think this necklace looks great with this outfit because it such a great statement piece and from these pictures, it looks great on you! I hope you had a great holiday and can’t wait to see your burgundy skinnies.


  15. 29 December 2013 / 17:37

    Perfect top, perfect pendant, and fabulous smile, dear Greetjet.
    Wonderful pics.

      Sacramento… !! You are back. I just saw your lovely family photos (of course I immediately checked out your blog). Great to have you back. Did you already unpack all the boxes?

    I would wear this look from necklace to bootie! I’m not one for chunky necklaces, but I do like this one… maybe it’s the black, haha!! Although you might not like it, I do because it plays down the chunkiness of it. And I think it looks stunning on you. Very minimalistic although bold, which is gorgeous on you. And why would we get tired of your skinnies when they are so suited for many different outfits? I love seeing how you wear them – in fact, I love seeing how my blog friends actually wear the clothes in their closet instead of just buying new clothes and wearing them. Keep on wearing those amazing skinnies, please!!!

      No problem there Kim, lots of skinnies to come. But I do try to vary a bit in my posts. Glad you liked it.

    LOVE your necklace! If it’s a mistake, it’s a good one! I love the colour cream too. It is always flattering on me, so I forgive it for being not staying clean as long as, say, black!

    How nice that you have found a friend who likes taking photos. Gorgeous Husband is not always so patient.

    Much love from England,

      My husband has no patience at all. Although he often offers to take pictures. So far it has been photographing with my remote all the time. Now the pictures might be getting a bit more exciting than just my back yard. The necklace brand is very nice. I think I will build a collection.

  18. 4 January 2014 / 19:00

    Great outfit! I live your skinnies. Isn’t it funny how some purchases are so right on? I actually like the necklace with the blouse by the way.

      It is a just a little bleak around my face with these colours. I resolve that by smiling a lot hahaha. Every time I see photos of me in skinnies I think: oh yes…
