My new favorite layering idea, jacket on jacket on shirt on shirt. All it needs to be able to hop outside is a long wool boyfriend sized coat on top.
PS: Make sure all layers are as thin as possible to prevent an I just had botox all over my body-feeling.
PPS: Excuse me for wearing this light blue shirt over and over and over again lately. It is like it’s the only thing in my wardrobe, huh.

I already showed you what I end up wearing when I do not want to think too much about getting dressed during hot summer days. Now that we are slowly transitioning into cooler weather, this is what I add on top; a giant sweater of which my boyfriend thinks it is only meant for the coldest winter days.
I declare this the transitioning uniform.

After my second favorite summer uniform, my ultimate favorite. A pair of distressed vintage shorts, a silk shirt in any color, my best (and only?) belt and easy sandals.

It is July and that means it is summer!! Wait, not really, not in Amsterdam, but at least I experienced some of it in Ibiza last week and the good news is that I will be spending some time in the sunny Gran Canaria ánd Los Angeles this month.
I thought we would only be skipping spring this year and we would have one hell of a hot summer, but it seems like we are skipping summer as well. How I just wish I could have take a tiny little piece of the sun back home…
Oh well, I could go on about the weather for ages and ages, but let’s just pretend we all have the best weather in the world and rock our bikinis and sunnies this month!

Wearing denim on denim, also known as the Canadian Tuxedo, is something some of stay as far away from as they can (and if your name is either Britney Spears or Justin Timberlake (remember that denim cowboy hat?!), I think you should).
It was a faux pas in the nineties, kind of made its comeback during the spring 2010 collections and is here to stay or subtly pass by every now and then.
Despite the fact that some can pull off any double denim look, I personally only think it works when there is enough contrast in colors. Also, it is a bit easier to wear when breaking up the ‘denim block’ with layers, though a simple denim on denim with the right pair of shoes can work just as well.
A few of my favorite full denim looks are Shala Monroque in a button down (or up?) skirt, Caroline Brasch Nielsen in Chloé jeans and Catherine McNeil by Christian MacDonald for Models.com and I pinned them all on Pinterest.
What do you think, love it or hate the double denim thing? I am going to try to pull it off tomorrow.
