When I was allowed to pick out some items from Wow To Go and Who’s That Girl last week, this blue jacket quickly caught my eye. I really liked the color and the print of it. It fitted me well, but it’s quite an oversized fit. As I always feel a bit off wearing oversized items, I decided to wear the jacket as a dress! I wrapped it around my waist tightly, added a belt, and there was the dress! Only, it was a bit too short. And that’s why I decided to wear another dress underneath it, which is just a bit longer. So, that’s where the pleats underneath the jacket are from! And actually, I really like it this way! It’s warm, because both the items have long sleeves, so it’s perfect for autumn! And layering your skirt or dress is actually a trend right now! So, win-win-win if you ask me! Also, fall is obviously a great excuse to start wearing my overknee boots again. This is my first outfit with them this season, but be prepared for many more, haha! So, what do you think of this layered outfit? :-)

So, I was feeling rather French in this outfit. A beret, Comme Des Garcons striped tee. The only thing I was missing was a baguette underneath my arm, haha! I’m wearing berets a lot more again the last week. Berets are my go-to item to make every outfit better in fall and winter. I love them! This outfit is from a weekend day, when me and my boyfriend went for a walk in the Vondelpark. I didn’t need a coat yet, that day. But I did decide to wear a scarf, just to be sure. I rolled up my jeans, and added a cute pair of socks, to give the outfit that tiny bit extra. So, what do you think of this Parisian-style outfit? :-)

Oh, how I love the period when the leaves are slowly changing color. The color palette in the park or the forest is just amazing. In the park in our neighborhood, there are two trees close together, which are both already super red. And so I thought this would be a good outfit shooting spot! Add the golden hour backlight effect, and it makes me even more happy! The shirt and trousers I’m wearing are from s.Oliver, and I love them both so much. Both have a print, but as you might know, I like mixing prints. So, that’s exactly what I did! I really like the yellow shade of the blouse for fall. And the trousers are a bit different from what you’re used to from me, but I really like them. What do you think of this combo? And are you in love with fall colors like I am? :D

I hope you all had a great weekend! I wore this outfit about two weeks ago, when the weather here was going from summery to autumny. I always find these periods kind of hard outfit-wise. You know you can’t wear a summery oufit, but how warm exactly should your outfit be? I finally went for a shirt, and high waisted jeans, and rolled up both the sleeves and the legs of my jeans. And I wore this with half-open shoes. And this turned out to be a great balance for that day! To add a little something extra to the outfit, I wore my straw box bag with it, and a pair of big earrings. What do you think of this summer to fall transition outfit? :-)
