Brown velvet jacket and camel pencil skirt

Posting only once a week is too little. Three times a week is too much. So I am now trying twice a week.
Tuesdays and Thursdays. Will you keep visiting me?

One evening I grabbed this brown velvet jacket and was determined to make an outfit with it. The lovely green skirt which created such a nice ensemble, had gone to pieces years ago.
Looking through my wardrobe in search of a light coloured skirt, I found this camel pencil skirt. Never wear it because it can give me a tummy and it creases enormously.

My husband is my critic for a new outfit, so downstairs I went: “What do you think of this outfit, darling?”
He actually judges and answers. Isn’t that nice? And he approved. That wasn’t the end of it (poor man), I still needed an answer to what colour top I would wear underneath it. “Yellow” he said immediately. So yellow it is. As I said before … I am not very good at styling but I have my little helpers… LOL

The cameo was a bit too much in his book, but I liked it. My yellow bag was still in use from the outfit of the day before…. hence… the yellow bag.

The next day I took my camera to work again, as this is the easiest way of getting photos which are a bit different from the boring garden photos. Unfortunately I had a bad-hair-day. And I had to squeeze my eyes because of the sun. But the photos are nice, very arty. Just look at the outfit and ignore the face.


Above left: not really my favourite point of view for photos….but I liked the fact that you see my legs reflected in the glass of the stairs (art over looks).

Got a lot of compliments that day. Which surprised me. But what do I know?


Brown sheer skirt, part 3 en last

My brown sheer skirt gave me so many unexpected possibilities. Hope I don’t bore you as this is the third article on the subject. I wanted to show you a fourth as well, but decided against it. Would be too much of the same. LOL

It was such an eye-opener that I could come up with so many outfits just by setting my mind to it. Before I began this adventure and threw all sorts of tops on the bed, this skirt was hanging in my closet, not being worn for 2 years. Now I can wear it so many times.

The first time you have seen it with a brown top, brown boots and a statement neckace, and the second time with the same brown top but a different belt, smaller necklace and python shoes. (I am giving you the links in case you want to refresh your memory -haha- or have not seen them yet.)

This third time I am using a leopard top (seen before here), cream jumper (seen before here), again a different belt, different necklace and my beautiful blue earrings (seen at the bottom of this article).
I spotted similar earrings with a big oval red stone and a green drop… so nice…. I could not restrain myself and tried them on. Fortunately they did not suit my face. Too long. What a relieve, as I did not have the money for it. LOL

And below the last two creations:

  • with a blue cashmere jumper, small brown belt and large bracelet.
  • with the leopard top underneath a brown velvet jacket. (I need to come up with some more combinations with this jacket. Next challenge.)

Will you believe I once said I only wore a skirt and top in one combination as only one could be perfect?
I find all these combinations perfect.
