In the Rain (again!)
Happy March everyone!
Spring showers have, over the past few days, greeted us here in Holland en masse with no end in sight; thus my spring outfits may well be in an overcast and wet atmosphere from here on out! I have always dreamed of living somewhere where March means sunshine and comfortable temperatures, but for now I will be looking out my window at the wet brick and cobblestone, with some serious Cali envy.
Whether you give much thought to your wardrobe or not, everyone has a signature style. Anything from clean-cuts and pressed shirts, to the sort of shoes she or he can’t stop buying, contributes to an overall taste that defines ones wardrobe. I know that one prominent trait of my clothing taste is my love for all things menswear. I am lucky that I am often able to borrow from my boyfriend’s closet, and I fall instantly in love with items designed for female figures but with men’s tailoring in mind. Thus, I pulled out all the stops on this outfit and created something wonderfully smart, with today’s trends in mind.
This striped top from Gamiss was a must, with a slight oversized fit and pinstripes, and topped off with eyelashes embroidered on the collar. Too cute! I tied a new favorite accessory, my New Look neck tie, around my collar to give it that frothy old-time feel that is adorning blouses left and right. Finally, I grabbed my cropped Topshop Boutique trousers, and my platform mules, to create an ensemble perfect for a day out on a bustling urban walkway.
I can’t wait to share more spring outfits with you, as I hopefully begin to pack away my winter coats, and wistfully eye my shorts and dresses for the coming seasons.
Let me know what you think!
