Pencil skirt styling part 2

SAMSUNG CSCIt may get a bit boring. See…. I ran out of photos…. you therefore will have to do with these. This is pencil skirt styling part 2 (here is a link for those who missed my first attempt). Of course after the initial styling the rest is easy. Once you have the basics, in this case boots and skirt, the tops are easy. View Post

Pencil skirt styling

SAMSUNG CSCOK, what’s with the brown face, you might ask??? Simple explanation: I had just been to a tanning parlor (I know Suzanne… bad, bad, bad. I cannot help it.) The first 24 hours after being on a tanning bed I look ridiculous. After that I look rather normal. Well… sort of. 🙄 .

As you know, styling skirts and dresses in a contemporary way is difficult for me. So I asked Anja (Curly Traveller), being my friend and part-time neighbour, to help me with some pencil skirt styling. Most of the above outfit was my own creation. Just couldn’t figure out what to wear for shoes or boots (always my problem). Anja asked “Do you have boots in the colour of that browny/cognacy colour which is in the scarf?” Sure enough I had them. Done. View Post

Purple brown tunic

First of all guys & girls, I have to slow down. At this pace, posting a new outfit every day, I will be exhausted soon and my marriage might suffer. Having a more than fulltime job, it is not easy to take photos, choose the right ones, adjust them to a better size and write articles. Every day. I have underestimated the task.

So …. how about every other day? Will you still follow me? I do hope so.

Today I will show you my purple brown tunic. I can wear it “up” with black trousers and high heeled boots. Or “down” with jeans and flat boots. I can wear it with a blouse of with a T-shirt.

I especially like the back of the tunic. Most things I do not like at the back, but this one…hmmm, nice.
High heels are my preference (always), but if I want to go shopping my flat boots are a better choice and the outfit will still look nice.

What is your ideal combination with this tunic?


Above left: I did not take into account I was wearing jeans with a big belt underneath the tunic, so the tummy part of the tunic is sticking out a little.

Photo above: black pearls sometimes look purple. The pearl in my ring is more purple than the necklace and the earrings.

You have already seen a close-up of my high heeled cognac boots on December 7, so I am only showing the flat ones.
Till Tuesday.

I was a bit fed up with all combinations in black, although I still have loads of them.
Therefore I went out this afternoon, in the snow, to take these pictures.

It was not a very bright idea to pick that spot underneath the tree as the snow was melting…… The camera was drip-dry secure underneath a little roof of the shed, but I wasn’t.

It is supposed to be very cold today. Haven’t noticed it really. Which is not that strange considering I have been working indoors most of the day. You should have seen me! Dressed in a worn-out dressing gown (with stains….. terrible). Hair…. how shall I put it? Not as neatly combed as normally, is the understatement of the year. Reading glasses on. Typing away, telephoning etc. So glad there is no visual contact yet when you are phoning. At least not standard. In the near future you will have to explain why you leave it switched off.

By the way: hairdresser tomorrow. Not a day too soon.

I have no further comment with these photos. Do you?
