outfits-september

Seriously? We’re almost halfway through October! Yeah, sorry about that. I’ve been incredibly busy at work and apparently I’m a terrible planner. So I’ll leave you guys with a couple of outfits for now. It’s getting colder and colder at the moment and I’m loving every second of it. Yesterday my boyfriend almost caught me trying on my wintercoats just for fun.

Regarding the outfits, I’m not sure whether or not I should post them because honestly, they’re kinda boring. Once I find a uniform that works, I stick with it for the time being. Hence the numerous pictures of me wearing a striped top and black loafers on Instagram. Unfortunately I’ll have to say goodbye to the latter for now because they’re no longer weather appropriate.

  1. H&M high-waisted jeans, &Other Stories basic wool long sleeve, Adidas Stan Smith sneakers and my beloved Céline trio bag.
  2. H&M striped shirt, Isabel Marant trenchcoat, Pier One loafers, Mansur Gavriel Bucket bag

Okay, so I’m cheating a little here. Because the picture in the upper right corner isn’t really an outfit. But I had to take a picture of my new coat for obvious reasons. Although it doesn’t neccessarily stand out, because I only tend to take pictures of outfits I wear during the colder days of the month as my outfits for 25 degrees and up are even more simple (and boring?) than the ones above.

The loafers are a huge hit. I’ve been wearing them almost every day. The same goes for my striped shirts, they make it so easy to get dressed in the morning. I don’t have to ask myself whether or not I need a blazer or a cardigan to spice things up, just the shirt itself is enough. Rainy and colder days also require a coat, so my Isabel Marant trenchcoat is back in business. I bought it somewhere in 2010 on sale and it has been one of my wardrobe staples ever since. Sometimes I wonder if I should wear it as much as I do, because it will be so hard to find a suitable replacement. I’m especially fond of the colour, not too beige or khaki but with a slightly greenish tone.

  1. H&M high-waisted jeans, H&M blouse, Pier One loafers, Balenciaga bag

I love myself a striped shirt and would almost go as far as considering anything striped a wardrobe staple. It’s a timeless piece of clothing that oozes Parisian chic when worn with a pair of black trousers and simple ballet flats. Oh, but you’re not into that so-called French effortless look? No problem! This piece easily transcends style genres and can be worn in countless different ways (see here).

Choosing the right striped item for your wardrobe can be a horrendous task. I mean, the options are endless; thick or thin stripes, blue, grey or black stripes (if you’re going for the classics) and what about the fit? Tailored or loose? My current favourite is the one above, a grey striped blouse made from airy lightweight-cotton, perfect for the office during a hot summer day.

How do you like your striped shirts?

Fall is here people! And I couldn’t be more excited. Now I finally get to wear my H&M Trend cardigan that I bought two months ago and which hasn’t seen the light of day until now. It’s much more fun for me to get dressed in the morning when it’s fall or winter. Probably because my summer uniform consists out of a pair of jeans and a simple t-shirt. Being able to wear different layers definitely makes getting dressed more exciting.
