Trousers: Tally Weijl, Blouse: KY création, Bag: Maddison (previous seasons)
Let me start by saying that I am talking about outfits here and not wine, although burgundy is a famous wine region of course. Burgundy is also this lovely rich, warm colour, associated with wine (hence the name), autumn and winter. I think it’s a shame to leave my burgundy trousers in my wardrobe half the year, especially since they are comfortable and classy in one. By adding lots of white they can be easily styled summery too. Have a look at my three burgundy/white summer & spring outfits.
In two of my previous blog posts I have written about the power of some 3-letter words. The word “but“ in a sentence has got the power to undo what came before. The word “yet“ has got the power to add possibilities and options when put at the end of a negative sentence. Today, I’d like to discuss the power of the word “not“ and how to make the best use of it.
Hat and Jumper: H&M, Bag: Tally Weijl, sunglasses: Cerjo, Trousers: Jacqueline de Yong (previous seasons)
Saying ‘Hi’ to the next semester of this school year. I am in the middle of the theme ‘wild animals’ with some of my classes, so I have chosen to wear this jumper to school this week (without the hat of course). Pupils really pick up this kind of subtle details, like with my halloween dress for example.
Dress: Only, Boots: Dansi, Top: H&M (all previous seasons)
You will have noticed by now that I love dresses and I often wear them to school as well. Rain, wind and cold may challenge me, but leggings and knee-high boots help me face these challenges when cycling to school. This dress is a perfect example of a dress that is pretty and practical at the same time.
Skirt: H&M, Shirt: Street One, Shoes: Moda di Fausto, Sunglasses: Cerjo (all previous seasons)
A few weeks back I spent a weekend in windy Holland. This midi skirt was a perfect choice for the occasion. It is absolutely wrinkle-free, so great for travelling and I like how playful the skirt looks when it is windy! It is definitely one of my more versatile skirts.
For me shorts are something I almost only wear in my spare time. I prefer dresses and skirts for school (see: Vive les volants! ), since they are so much easier to style if you want to wear something comfortable and classy in your classroom. These shorts are definitely the exception to the rule.
I assume most of you have seen the film The Sound of Music at least once. Do you remember the scene in which Julie Andrews takes down the curtains to sew some clothes for the Von Trapp kids? This dress just reminds me of that scene, flowery as it is.
The summer season is a great time for dress lovers like me. Skirts and dresses are just so much better for creating a comfortable and classy style than wearing (bermuda) shorts, don’t you agree? That’s why I wear a lot of skirts and dresses in summer, making sure I can cycle in them of course.
