It looks like the perfect winter day but there’s a storm coming

It was a freezing cold day but the sun was shining, all appeared to be the perfect winter day. On this day I decided to go out and make these photos because the light in this time of year is so beautiful. I went where it was the clearest, at the coast. Despite the beautiful colors of the sky and surroundings, it was clear that a storm was coming. Reflecting a bit of real life.

This look could be names several names, like budget look, shop your shape, 2018 trends and so on. To me personally this will be a year of change. I am determined to overcome everything and that I will be the same, or a better version even! It feels like I have conquered the greatest storm of my life. Falling and getting up again, just how life is supposed to be. It also means reflecting, looking into a mirror and seeing what’s going on and even accepting my own mistakes.

Something I often tell you that I never really shop complete outfits. I love going the racks and just check out what I like, the way I combine it is not my first concern. It’s not something I can explain, how it works between my ears because there is no logic to it. This is a good example of what accidentally happened, I shop one thing, add another and find the rest in my closet from previous collections. And all of a sudden I have a new look. The great thing about these new items is that 1- I got them on sale and 2- they are from the straight size collection. So always look beyond the size numbers, shop your shape, not your size.

The skirt is a sale item which I got for a bargain, I’ve shown it in my (Dutch) shop vlog. I decided a while ago to make my videos in Dutch, which I think is more natural. If you disagree and want to see it in English, do let me know! Let’s go back to the skirt, it’s a size L and goes up to XL but this fits me perfect with a UK 20-22 size. The blouse is from H&M which normally has a very narrow sleeve but I was positivity surprised to fit into a size EU 46 (UK18). How gorgeous is this red coat, which I already got last year. Check out my blog with this jacket here. The same goes for the boots, which were also on sale last year.
