WEARING WINTER WHITE

Tags: , , , ,

My mom always used to try and teach me black boots don’t go with white jeans and – even if in most cases she’s right – this is my attempt to prove her wrong. My attempt on wearing winter white (thé color of this month) too. I mean I wouldn’t try this with knee length boots (in any color for that matter), but I feel some white jeans can get along with an occasional black ankle boot. Paired with the dark oversized wool coat it takes the contrast away from being a bit too huge and the scarf is – other than keeping my guts from freezing – to prevent total boredom. Do you wear your white jeans in winter? What do you pair ’em with? Coat, COS; Sweater, H&M Trend; Jeans, Diesel; Ankle Boots, Zara; Scarf, Johnstons.

In only 4 days I will be leaving my beloved Amsterdam for a few days of good old New York Fashion Week (and then London, and then Milan, and then Paris). Coat, COS; Sweater, Acne (men’s department); Leather Pants, Samsoe & Samsoe; Shoes, Isabel Marant; Scarf, Johnstons.

BEFORE THE STORM

LEATHER PANTS

Tags: , , , ,

According to a recent survey, they are the most regretted fashion purchase among women. For me, it has been the longest fashion search: leather pants. I mean there is more important things to find in life; love (found that one already), wisdom, happiness, etc. and most of them are quite hard to bump into, but man finding the perfect pair of fitting leather pants definitely is no easy task either. I think there is not one other item I have tried on more than leather pants. From Zara to Joseph, from 150 euros up to a 1.000. Nothing quite made it to the register. For a second – ok maybe a few – I even wanted to pull the trigger on Balmain, but then quickly came to senses (I could treat my boyfriend on a vacation for that amount of money). The thought of owning perfect leather pants (I already had leggings, but I wanted pants, with actual pockets and a zipper) kept hunting me until I clicked home this beauty from the Swedish brand Hunkydory. Rarely do I ever buy tight pants online unless I happen to know my size from a particular brand. And so I slipped them on immediately after receiving the package – I swear it is hard closing the zipper with crossed fingers hoping it would fit me – and have not taken them off ever since. Hunkydory leather pants, Zara striped sweater from the men’s dep., Isabel Marant shoes and Johnstons scarf.

THAT COAT AGAIN

Tags: , , , , ,

Yes, it is that Rodebjer coat again. It is so perfect, I love the way it moves and it has the best navy blue, works with just about anything. I thought I better give it some wear before it gets way too cold for thin coats like this one to be worn without some extra layers. Could be interesting though, two long layered coats, like I did last year with a leather jacket and wool wintercoat. Rodebjer coat (via DearFieldbinder.com), Nowhere jumper, Diesel jeans, hidden Isabel Marant boots and Johnstons scarf.

ROUNDUP

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Being in New York to me is as if I’m living a real life dream. Only and just the fact that my boyfriend and I are finally moving in together (we found a super cool apartment!) is making me want go back home really badly. I seriously can’t wait to pack my boxes! I worked on a secret project on my second day in THE city almost all day – no worries, the project will be revealed before you can blink your eyes – therefor I don’t have super many pics to share. I did shoot some street style shots and I have to admit, it’s not really my thing, but during Fashion Week it’s nice to step out of comfort zone sometimes. After some street style captions, I went to see the Tibi show. A simple collection with strong colors and super nice details, even though it reminded me a little bit of last years Céline. Today is more quiet, which means I have time for some shopping! Diesel jeans, Lindex top, Acne vest, Samsoe & Samsoe coat, Isabel Marant boots, Johnstons scarf, Céline bag and Rayban sunglasses.

This is not really what I am wearing right now, but what I was wearing yesterday, before the Fashion Week madness started and before I had to change into my Stella McCartney jumpsuit (which I’ll show soon). Flat shoes, to prepare my feet for the week of heels and overall very comfy. H&M Trend jumper, Tibi top, Johnstons scarf, Current/Elliot jeans (Pl Line) and Alexander Wang boots.

During wintertime, I kinda limit myself clothingwise, since I hate hoisery. I’m more of a bare legged person, but ofcourse it’s way too cold for that right now, so I have to go with my jeans and other trousers for another while. This time I decided it was time to take the Levi’s friends out for a walk, instead of the Dr Denim jeans that have been sort of glued to my ass for the last couple of weeks. Samsoe & Samsoe shirt, Johnstons scarf, Levi’s jeans, Isabel Marant shoes and Queens Wardrobe coat.
