Are you getting tired of my 23kg wardrobe (plus some new stuff) yet? I am, kind of…
But I guess that is ok. It makes it a h•ll (uhmm, whole) lot easier to get dressed in the morning, when there is not much to choose from. And I am probably going to be extra super happy with the contents of my full wardrobe that is loyally waiting for me in my apartment in Amsterdam. It makes me realize I obviously own more than enough clothes. I wonder though if I am able to deal with this for three months, wouldn’t I be able to live with it for the rest of the 9 months that exist in a year too? Rhetorical question…
I mean how many items do we really truly need? How many items would a perfect minimal wardrobe consist of, a wardrobe that doesn’t house a single item that stays unworn? Tags sometimes even still attached. Something to definitely take into consideration during the next major Spring clean out.
NTS (note to self): New wardrobe rule, new thing in, old thing out. No exceptions.

I like my jeans cut right above the ankle, raw hems and everything. It is a thing that I have been doing for quite a while now, since my jeans are always(!) too long for me. To prevent the excess denim from gathering around the ankle and to have to bring them to the tailor before being able to wear them, I just cut them and let the hems fray. This adds a certain amount of nonchalance to any pair of skinny jeans.
They’re good with low-top sneakers and bare ankles in Spring/Summer (or LA), but work with fun warm socks peeping out of a pair of leather ankle boots as well.

Can Los Angeles weather get anymore perfect? This city seriously has the perfect temperature to make all my sartorial wishes come true.
Leather jackets over summer dresses and ankle boots? Check.
Shorts mixed with chunky sweaters and (socks in) sandals? This sun has it all covered.
It even works for my first experiment in reversed layering. I am not sure if there are more to come, but since there was a bit too much blazer showing up underneath my leather bestie, I thought it would be a good idea to try them the other way around, with my boxy boyfriend blazer functioning as the coat of the two.
