On the day that we shot this outfit, it was super rainy in the Netherlands. However, me and Joy were dedicated to shoot our outfits! There’s a spot near my house which is covered from the rain and which is also pretty enough for an outfit shoot. Lucky us! Because it was a rainy day, I really felt like wearing my colorful pants. They’re warm, but they also add some nice extra color to a grey day! I hadn’t worn these pants for over a year, so this look is also a Mix or Ditch outfit! The peplum top is from my Mix or Ditch box as well.
I do really like both the top and the pants. The thing with the pants is that they have a very warm lining, but they are cropped at the same time. Which makes them only applicaple to very specific weather temperatures, haha! Also, they are low waisted, which I always find hard to combine in a way I feel comfortable in. But then Simone told me she always wears her low waisted pants with a peplum top. And I figured that would be a good idea! Altogether, I think it turned out pretty well! It’s a lot less retro than my usual outfits, but it is colorful, so it probably still sort of fits in with my style, haha! What do you think of this combo? And what do you wear on a rainy spring day?
