Fancypants, Liz Taylor Inspired


trousers, sweater: H&M - coat: Thrifted - boots, earrings: Forever21 - sunglasses: ASOS


I would be really stupid to wear these pants to go skiing because they are flimsy and chilly and short, but I still think they look the part in this particular outfit. Just goes to show how a more summery piece can easily get a totally different look by styling it in a different context. I went for an Elizabeth Taylor sort of vibe with the heirloom earrings and Cleopatra blue eyeshadow+eyeliner look. The combination of more loose-fitting, slightly tapered trousers and a sweater feels very 60s to me which makes it Liz Taylor appropriate, and she would have loved the bright pink with the dramatic black.

If you're Dutch or Belgian, you'll recognize the scenery as typical for our region. Flat, the prominence of water (be it in mud or in canals and rivers) and sad bits of artificially positioned trees. I make it sound way more negative than I really feel about it, I actually do love our lowlands. Even when they're desolate like during winter. Not your typical photo backdrop, but the pink sunset gave it that certain je ne sais quoi. AMIRITE?

So do you like this look or do you agree with my boyfriend who thinks these trousers make my ass look like a pink pancake?

  1. Ik heb het niet zo voor roze en ook niet voor dat type broek. Dus het is niet iets wat ik zelf zou dragen maar dat is het juist het leuke aan stijl :) De zonnebril, oorbellen en jas zijn dan wel weer geweldig.

  5. Ik vind juist dat je kont er particularly bootylicious uitziet in die broek! Geen pannekoekvibe whatsoever. Ik vind 'm awesome en zou 'm zo zelf dragen. Je make up is natuurlijk prachtig en de oorbellen, jebus <3 Die foto van de reflectie van de zonsondergang in je zonnebril vind ik ook heel erg geslaagd.
