outfit isabel marant celine trio

As of recently, I have gotten a few requests to post some outfit pictures but up until now I’ve always been quite hesitant. Partly because I am not your average size 0 fashion/style blogger but also because I wear the same things day after day. A so-called uniform might be great for the person wearing it but for you, dear readers, it’s most likely very boring. Trust me, once you have seen a couple of outfits, you have pretty much seen them all. That said, I thought I would give it a try anyway.

Today I’m wearing a combination of classics. Over the years I have owned several spring/summer coats but I always seem to go back to this trench coat by Isabel Marant. Underneath I’m wearing a simple white t-shirt by & Other Stories and a pair of black skinny jeans from Topshop. I guess it doesn’t get more simple than that but it’s definitely a combination that works every time especially paired with my black loafers and the already classic Céline trio bag.

It will come as no surprise that my spring uniform is pretty much the same as last year’s. Why change a winning team right? I took my loafers to a cobbler to get the heels replaced before I stored them last year so they would be good to go for spring. The t-shirt is an oldie from COS and will get plenty of wear this summer along with the trench coat from my previous post. That is, unless someone at work starts noticing that small chocolate milk stain which I have been able to hide up until now. I sometimes wish my outfit posts could be a bit more exciting for you guys but in the end these are the things I feel most comfortable and put together in.

GET THE LOOK

Or any occasion you want to dress up for really. Although I’m not quite sure if the term ‘dress up’ is appropriate here, because I always feel put together to some extent. But a few minor adjustments such as a pair of pumps with a mid heel (I can’t do anything higher than 7 cm) and a classic set of pearl earrings can elevate any look. Nevertheless, it remains a fairly uncomplicated outfit. I could easily wear this to work but it’s still chic enough for a night out or a lovely Christmas dinner.

Presenting one of my simple fall uniforms. It will come as no surprise that my striped shirts are still in frequent rotation. I wonder when and if I’ll grow tired of them. I have yet to acquire a classic breton striped shirt from Saint James, but it’s definitely on my list for when the time comes that one of my current shirts needs to be replaced. The rest of the outfit mostly consists of old loves, such as a navy Isabel Marant peacoat (I told you about my rather extensive coat collection, right? I could never be a minimalist), a pair of Zara chelsea boots which are unfortunately not as comfortable as I had hoped them to be when I bought them last year, and my beloved Balenciaga city bag.

The only new addition to my wardrobe is a pair of blue jeans that fits me perfectly. Now, I absolutely loathe trying on jeans or pants in stores (fitting room mirrors are the devil) but I made an exception during my last visit to Amsterdam because I ripped yet another pair of old jeans and I was desperate to find a suitable replacement. Turns out that these are a nice change from my usual black jeans while staying within the range of my preferred dark colour palette.
