Autumn colored outfit(s)

This gallery contains 12 photos.

Autumn is in the air! Lot’s of rain is heading our way, temperature is still nice and now and then the sun is un-hiding ;-). For me, this is the right moment to change my wardrobe view 180 degrees and prepare for the next season. I’m loving it!

At this moment I really appreciate the red and maroon colored pieces. It almost matches every skin type (at least if you combine it with the right color tone for your skin type) and, most important, it’s trending FW15/16!

Underneath I’ve selected a few items that should complete my autumn wardrobe for now. My key item should be the stunning red Filling Pieces sneakers!

Faux fur rules!

Recently I visited a vintage party. I think buying (and trading) vintage is a great thing to do and I really appreciate it when people make an effort to consider the environment while updating their wardrobe. Full of excitement about what kind of spectacular items I was about to discover today I went to the party. Unfortunately I was soon to discover that this party wasn’t that much fun at all. About half of the vintage collection that was presented was made of real fur! If there’s something that I just can’t understand, it is why people should buy real fur. When I confronted the owner of the fur items with my point of view he tried to convince me that it isn’t that much of a problem to wear real fur and that the negativity that’s associated with wearing it is much exagerated since most people wear real leather without a breeze. With that superficial non-explanation he convinced me to leave right a way, this just wasn’t my ‘cup of tea’.

So here I am, wearing my nice FAUX fur gilet! And I’m proud of it!

Above I combined the faux fur gilet (H&M) with a white turtleneck (Drykorn), a jeans skirt (Diesel) and fringe ankle boots (Isabel Marant). I completed my outfit with a beaded necklace and a bracelet with ‘a hint of orange’.

 

Guess what! It’s Friday!

And that means we have to ‘worry’ about Friday Night: tonight I’m having drinks with the girls! I must admit, there are worse things to worry about, but still…

While deciding about what I feel like wearing tonight I have a few details which I have to consider before letting my mind run wild. First of all the weather conditions, second the type of event, third who will be joining me and fourth, and most important, how do I feel!

Thinking about tonight I’ve chosen the following items to complete my outfit with.

For this outfit I’ve combined a ByDanie sweater with a black and army green skirt from Isabel Marant and black thights. The black ankle booties and the faux fur jacket are from H&M and the bracelet is a design from Saint Laurent. Since I won’t be carrying a lot tonight I will take a clutch bag from D&G.

Today’s outfit!

I love the graphical printed items! It gives you the opportunity to add some color to every (basic) outfit, without getting hysterical. Today I chose for a (nice and warm!) pair of thick tights with a simple but colourful Desigual dress. Since I wanted my outfit to look a little less girlie I combined the dress with a pair of comfortable but elegant fringe boots.

Today’s comfy outfit: galactic square print dress, black tights and fringe boots! I completed my outfit with a fringe bag.
