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?

Not literally – it finally stopped raining – but figuratively. 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).

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.

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.
