Golden boots dressed up with a classic jacket

Golden boots, black Pauw jacket and skinny jeans (3 van 7)Again the golden boots. This time dressed up with a classic black double breasted jacket by Pauw. A lovely brand with flipping expensive clothes. These last two years I didn’t buy very much from them. The black jacket is at least three years old and comes with trousers. The full suit is really for office wear only (see it here).

The jacket combined with skinny jeans is much nicer to me. A juxtaposition with styles and/or colours is a well-known way to create an interesting outfit. I learned both the word “juxtaposition” and how to achieve “this interest” while blogging the last two years.

I also learned (after I created this outfit) how to distract attention from a large bosom. Especially when you wear a top with a high neckline: create a V with a jacket. Hah… got that right by accident.

My dear husband didn’t feel like taking photos as he hadn’t prepared an artistic idea yet. However, I pleaded long enough and he said “alright, but under protest”. A white wall as background is not his idea of a good photo shoot. But I was wearing this outfit, the light was OK, we were both free, it wasn’t raining…. rather ideal circumstances. So a white wall it is…

Below: it wasn’t very warm though…. can you see my nose getting red?Golden boots, black Pauw jacket and skinny jeans (5 van 7)Below: my favourite pose. Wearing…. black Pauw jacket, skinny jeans by Denham, golden boots by Hoss as seen here and a black and blue body by Wolford (seen here in full). I know I cannot wear this body without properly covering my lumps and bumps and this jacket provides just that coverage. Finally found a use for that black and blue thing. Golden boots, black Pauw jacket and skinny jeans (4 van 7)Below: not bad from the side… in my opinion.Golden boots, black Pauw jacket and skinny jeans (1 van 7)Below: and not bad from the back either. My, my… this outfit gets an 8-star rating from me. I very much love an outfit which gives the impression I have a perfect figure haha. Who doesn’t?Golden boots, black Pauw jacket and skinny jeans (2 van 7)Below: a close-up of the boots. They are soooo comfortable. Golden boots, black Pauw jacket and skinny jeans (7 van 7)So this is an outfit which creates the image of a good figure and I can wear flat shoes with it and walk for miles. What a winner. The boots will not be everybody’s taste, but they certainly are my taste (and the taste of a lot of readers as I found out with the first post about these boots. Surprise, surprise… Or are you all lying through your teeth? LOL). More lovely shoes at Glenda’s So What to Twenty.

    Hey now Ms. Greetje, looking ever so polished in your fitted blazer and then a spice of the unexpected on the feet. Conservative with a wink. That’s the way to do it 😉

      Great praise from a stylish lady like you. Thank you.

  2. 1 February 2015 / 18:19

    Oooh love that Pauw blazer. I drool over their clothes every time
    I shop Amsterdam, but have never bought anything there. I find more affordable beauties at Claudia Strater, Cora Kemperman and Vanilia

    • Greetje

      Yes, as I said, they are ridiculously expensive. They usually have an early sale though. Next time you are in Amsterdam, give me a shout, will you?

  3. 1 February 2015 / 18:57

    Ah….I knew you would look fabulous in jeans! These are beauties…I love the faded look…unfortunately something that I haven’t been able to replicate on my new-mades.

    Now, the turtleneck! I thought I recalled you saying that you rarely wore this neckline; but you’ve got all the elements exactly right with this outfit in my humble opinion. You look awesome!

    Um….I’m one of the ones that likes these boots, LOL!

      I do rarely wear this neckline. I have three bodies (as we call them, sort of swimsuits with buttons at the bottom): a black one and two stiped ones: this blue/black one and one in black and white. That is it. And I hardly wear them. Don’t know what came over me to get this one out of the closet, but I got it right (I think). “Getting better all the time… getting better all the time…. (sing along if you want).”

  4. 1 February 2015 / 19:25

    Now this is my kind of outfit, one I would put on to go anywhere and everywhere. You look model perfect today! Those booties look fabulous with your skinnies and that stripe sweater is perfectly stated under your classic blazer. All I can say, is WOW! Love this look.

    • Greetje
      1 February 2015 / 19:32

      Yep, I am very content with the outfit and myself haha. Thought of this one all by myself. Not that it is rocket science, but still…

    This jacket is a treasure, it fits you so well, and whatever it cost, it is worth it!
    It gives this outfit a polished look, and I love the striped t.neck underneath, Yes, your long legs and narrow hips were built for skinnies!!!

    Again, classic. THEN, you threw in the golden boots and ramped up your game.

    LOVE it Greetje!
    xx, elle

      When evening falls and dinner is finished… th jacket is getting a bit tight around the stomach….

  7. 2 February 2015 / 08:50

    Perfect silhouette, dear! Beautiful jacket! Its classic style is very well balanced with the modern line of the big pockets. It would be interesting to see the full suit… the skinnies and boots complete the look adding a very contemporary toucht and they are … soooo you!.

    • Greetje
      2 February 2015 / 11:22

      There is a link in this post to a previous post where you can see the whole suit….

      • 9 February 2015 / 09:09

        I have just seen the full suit: it is very classic, now I am wondering how would it look with the golden boots, black and blue body and blue bag…? 🙂
        last time I didn’t noticed the link, but , as you know , my eyes leave much to be desired
        Just to let you know, yesterday I tried some glasses on … of course only to see how my sight could improve!!

          Yes dear, we all have to wear glasses, sooner or later. I am just lucky I have always worn lenses. Now I have lenses with a reading part. Pretending I am 10 years younger LOL.

  8. 2 February 2015 / 11:02

    Okay, that’s a fine outfit for showing off your great sassy butt (ha!) especially in your profile shot. I like the pointing shot because it’s unexpected. Yes, I can really see you on a jaunty walk in this, swinging that bag with those gold boots. The suit looks expensive and finely cut. I’m glad Ron decided to join in – the white wall came out great.

    • Greetje
      2 February 2015 / 11:24

      I know, I was pleased with this white wall too. It doesn’t always have to be complicated. And thanks for the compliments. Rather chuffed myself.

  9. 2 February 2015 / 12:05

    Perfect outfit for you Greetje. Love the casual with the chic. I actually think the photos came out really well!
    Thanks so much for bringing my style course to the attention of your readers 🙂

    This is the outfit I like to see on you. It is sporty and chique at the same time. You really have a great butt in those jeans. Love the turlleneck on you and off course my favourite boots. This is a winner and it makes you look years younger. How about that.

    • Greetje
      2 February 2015 / 21:07

      I say, this is definitely a winner outfit. It might even deserve a 10.

    The jeans are gorgeous, fits so well and that means a keeper. I can see a bit of equestrian vibe in this outfit, must e the jacket and boots. Very nicely done, Greetje!

    • Greetje
      2 February 2015 / 21:10

      Thank you very much Mrs C. I was quite proud of myself (even though it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to come up with this haha).

  13. 2 February 2015 / 22:25

    You do look fabulous in this outfit. Rockin’ body lady!

    Loving your metallic boots! Very nice with your double breasted blazer and jeans – great look!

    These jeans are amazing on you. I am not fan of these boots for myself but they do look great as a statement piece to this outfit. And when you have shoes that you can walk around all day – they really are perfect!


    • Greetje
      5 February 2015 / 05:39

      Thanks for the honest feedback. Much appreciated. The fact that I can run around in them all day makes them even more attractive to me. But ai will admit, I love the sight as much haha.

  16. 5 February 2015 / 16:41

    Indeed a good look and silhouette, Greetje.

    Although dark-blue and navy-blue are supposedly the perfect colors for me, I tend to find it a very conservative, bit boring color.

    But the way you combined and styled it, it results in just the level of ‘classic’ that I can handle and appreciate. Well done!

    This outfit is really lovely! I like how classy it is and the boots give it just the right amount of pizzaz!

      8 February 2015 / 20:39

      I am so pleased about the outfit myself. Especially because this time I thought of it myself. I am not the best stylist, just very very interested.

  18. 8 February 2015 / 04:50

    Those boots look surprisingly good … where did you get them?

    • Greetje
      8 February 2015 / 20:40

      From Hoss Intropia. It is a Swedish brand. They weren’t cheap but I got them in the sale.

    Wow, looking great! I think the boots are nice, a black pair with the same outfit would look great, too. You always look great in jeans, but you never seem to show your bum, it’s always covered by a long top. Any reason why? It looks like it could be shown off. Do you ever try Levi’s jeans, or Guess?

    • Greetje
      10 February 2015 / 22:51

      I love jeans by Denham and 7 For All Mankind. They give me a great bum. And the reason why I never show it is because I have a scrawny little bum, small hips, not much waist and a tummy. So that part of me is usually cleverly covered to make people believe I am perfect haha (NOT). Just emphazising the good parts and hiding the lesser parts. Which is the trick for everbody. I have tried Levi’s but not the recent ones, neither have I tried Guess. Nevertheless I have quite a few pairs.
