Transition Must Have

30 July 2017

What is it about old band tees that always catch my eye?
Well…I guess that goes for basically anything black. 🙂

I love this look because it gives off a carefree vibe with a touch of feminism.
This outfit says, ‘I didn’t wake up like this but it only took me 20 min to get ready’.

Leather skirts that are long enough to wear with bare legs can be hard to find.
The key? Go for a leather material that doesn’t hug your every curve in an uncomfortable way and one that complements your figure.

I used to limit leather (rather, pleather) to cooler weather but now that I live in a place with a mild summer climate, leather can be worn year round. Leather jacket? Must have transition piece. Leather skirt? Perfect with bare legs and a tee or with tights and a blouse in a few months.

My rule of thumb for shopping:
One thing I try to keep in mind when shopping this time of the year is how long I will be able to wear the pieces I’m buying. As we are moving into cooler months, it’s good to buy pieces that you can not only wear now but also later on. Well, unless it’s a really, really good deal…then do what your heart tells you. 🙂

Band Tee: Zara (but can be found at a lot of major retailers. Hint: size up for a boxier fit)
Leather Skirt: H&M

Sweet Summertime

18 July 2017

I’ve been a little ‘out of pocket’ via the blog lately.
Not because I haven’t wanted to take the time to catch up with you guys but mostly because we’ve just been enjoying one of my (and probably yours, too) favorite times of the year: SUMMER.

Now that I live in Holland I can truly appreciate the beautiful thing that is Summer:
-it’s light until well after 10 pm
-if the sun shines the temperature quickly rises to a degree of absolute perfection (aka rarely above 80 degrees)
-we get ice cream almost every night after dinner (full disclosure). 🙂

Since my last post we went to Hawaii, which was a TOTAL dream by the way (currently editing my video, to follow later this weekend…). I cannot say enough good things about the magical islands. Well, anyway, more on that later.

How is your summer going?

Do you find it hard to get inspired when it comes to your wardrobe when it’s so warm outside? Feel like you’ve worn it all before?
This look is paired with my fave MOM jeans and flatforms. I added a ruffle blouse to freshen the look up and threw on my Bauble Bar inspired earrings for something fun. I have had all of these pieces for a while, but never thought about combining them, which gave me a ‘new’ feeling. 🙂

Shop Bree’s Look:

Blouse: Mango
Jeans: H&M
Flatforms: Zara
Earrings: similar to Bauble Bar
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff
