WHEN IN WINTER IS WARM..

1059023_10154388363148219_1995836927_n When I moved to Amsterdam 3 months ago I would have never have thought of strolling around the city in such an outfit in mid December. I was more thinking of which parka coat would have been the warmest to deal with the Dutch winter weather. Well.. Since I am a lover of warm weather, it looks like my prayers have been listened to! So, this week when I checked my weather app (I always do because I don’t like to take out Emma in the rain)  I got the biggest surprise! 13 degrees.. Whaaat?? This could only mean.. Spring and fall clothes can make a come back! So they did! My favourite miu miu loafers I thought I could only meet again in the ‘so far away’ spring! But I am not here to talk about the weather. What I do love to talk about is an outfit building! In this case ‘how you can pull off spring clothes in winter’. Here is one example: I combined my favourite spring (or fall) shoes – heels or flat would work the same way – with my favourite sweater, keeping a ‘wintery’ colour palette. It gives a good balance and still keeps your body warm, plus you can still enjoy some of your favourites you were only dreaming to wear again soon. 12366882_10154388363263219_913833629_n12387878_10154388362653219_1223767098_n12388100_10154388362778219_1788120753_n12395431_10154388362943219_1083470871_n12395552_10154388362883219_171551170_n12395647_10154388363008219_1912816106_n

ADIDAS SUPERSTAR SLIP ON

12336102_10154369512308219_1803049865_n Half Superstar, half Celine pull on sneakers.. It’s the kind of originality that either you hate or you fall in love with. I never imagined finding some white kicks I would love more than the classic Adidas Stan Smith, but I must admit, I did find them! Especially when browsing shoes online I wouldn’t have thought of buying another pair of white sneakers! This is my fourth pair and I am still not tired of them. I think what makes white sneakers interesting is the sporty-chic touch which they give to any outfit. I say ‘any’ because really, they are still having a big fashion moment and  you can pair them with anything. This is what make these shoes so interesting to me. How I like to wear them? Here I paired with a simple yet chic black trousers but also think leather trousers, leather leggings, skinny or boyfriend jeans, culottes, midi skirts and even dresses! I mean, what it there not to love? A pair of shoes that goes with everything, gives you comfort and make you still feel chic. They are the best for transitional weather (I tend not to wear them if its very freezing outside because I don’t like them with socks. I wear them bare feet and I would end up with a flu!). So when the weather allows, since I moved from a rainy country to one even more rainy, they are the shoes that add coolness to any outfit. So, I say, you need to get yourself at least one pair pair.. It’s a safe investment if you like the designer ones like GucciSaint Laurent or Celine or there are some very cool ones without the need of splashing the cash. 12336251_10154369511948219_1112390287_n 12351092_10154369512398219_1967072195_n 12355209_10154369512198219_1793437171_n 12366591_10154369512453219_1779086740_n

(Men are always exaggerating!!) The minute I come home with a new shopping bag and I show him the novelty with excitement and satisfaction (..this is not always happening since I don’t want to hear ‘did you really need a new pair of shoes, or bag, or blabla… but this happens in every house, doesn’t it?) I think he hopes in a pair of killer heels. Instead it would be a pair of sneakers, denim, loafers, leather pants or this time a sweater dress. Now, lets get to the point..I could have styled it with heels too but with trainers is more stylish to me. A scandi-inspired sporty-chic look makes me feel more myself and I really can enjoy the layering game adding leather trousers underneath and playing with lengths adding a masculine cut  coat. I added a feminine touch to the look with this cool bracelet from Chandrah. You may have already seen it on my Instagram because I have been wearing it every day since I have got it. This style is on point with the ‘marble look a like’ beads and 18k rose gold plated detail. I love how easily you can put it on with the elastic band. Chandrah offers free worldwide express shipping and I am thinking, since I am enjoying it so much, it would make a great Christmas gift for my besties. So, to make the story short, you must wear only what makes you feel good!  And blame the rain that in Amsterdam has been non stop the past week or the time waiting that the baby wakes up from her nap or to be honest, I just wanted a new pair of shoes I may need or not.. I ended up buying a new pair of sneakers.. and these are amazing! Stay tuned!
