Post Grey green baggy trousers, creme top, high heels

OK... here are my new baggy trousers again. This time with a creme top and high heels. In snake. Those shoes are actually very comfortable. Which is something that I did not expect.

I think Sylvia, that you will like this outfit better, but those trousers will never meet your approval. I think they are even in your list of things we should not do over 40.
So I broke a rule.

I will also upload some styling failures with these trousers. After all, we learn most of our failures. And if Sylvia is not afraid to show some less succesful photos (in your post "Take my Helen van der Meer bag for an outing"), why should I be?

You are right Greetje. I like this outfit much better. You've got your normal height in your legs back as well! And yes, they are in my what not to do 'rules', but I'm all for breaking the rules! I think that 'dressing up' these pants a bit as you do here with your top and your fabulous shoes (!) is the way to go (in my humble opinion of course)

This is the combi you would normally pick, the save choice , the one you can wear to the office . I would love to hide in your handbag, when you would put on the combi with the leather jacket to the office yust to see the faces of the stiff upper lip people in your office. To die for.

I had to laugh on your comment. Believe you me, the trousers are enough of a shock without the leather jacket and the sneakers. Although... there are more women who dress shockingly. But that is more the case at the Marketing department than at Advertising (my department).

Greetje, I don't think anyone would be shocked by anything you would wear, it would just confirm them in their thinking of 'typically Greetje to wear something out of the ordinary and why don't I have the guts to do stuff like that'. He, you even got away with a bunny suit and net stockings. This is definitely a saver combination. Beautiful color combination and great shoes to go with it.

Thank you. I like it as well.
(Katrien, had to laugh over your comment... Very funny. But the bunny suit was on stage and 8 years ago. But agreed, it was risky at that time as well. Haha.)

I like this combination very much. You need to keep the proportion shorter on top to balance this look.
PS - when you come to live with me - pack those shoes too. :)

I agree with Marianne, this is the save option.... you look very well put together.
And why not compromise and wear the leather jacket here? (And also try another cropped top)
Those shoes are to die for!!!!

I wear the leather jacket as a coat. I used to wear it indoors, but it always made me feel as if I was on my way out. Especially with the scarf.
And Suzanne, will you pay for the extra charges the airline will bill me for luggage over 20 kilos when I come over?
