And it’s that time again! It is still August, so still summer, and you are already overwhelmed with the fall collection. I always hate that so much. Just enjoy the summer and wear those wonderful dresses tees and sandals as long as you can! I am not going to step in that trap anymore!
Why you shouldn’t step in the trap of buying fall collection in August!
I did years ago. Then I became completely lyrical when the new collections came out and I immediately bought the snappy boots, sweaters, coats etc. And by the time it was cold enough to wear it, I didn’t like it that much anymore or, worse, I saw a lot more nicer boots and clothes.
And yes, I have already saw some fabulous ankle boots, this print in brown! And yes, I want them! And yes, by the time I want to wear them they are sold out! But I don’t do it! I won’t buy them already! At least I will wait until mid-September or so and then I will go completely crazy with buying stuff!! No, not that either. I’m going to neatly write down what I need, long cardigans, and which colors I don’t own yet.
Because that is also such a thing. For example, I have bought a skirt and I do not have a suitable top or blouse or sweater to wear on it. So now I’m really going to look better at what I want and what I already have in the closet what fits with a item I want! Wish me good luck, I will need it! Hahah.
This is a Summer outfit!
Olive green is such a beautiful color, and any other color goes well with it. This is a wonderfully simple dress that fits nicely. But so stretchy that you hardly feel that you are wearing anything! Ideal for the warm weather. But it’s a sleeveless dress and my upper arms are really ugly, my skin is so dry. So I prefer to wear a cardigan over it. This is a long cardigan, but it is super thin so it does not give any warmth. But it looks a bit more dressy.
I love these types of sandals, simple but with a golden chain or buckle or whatever golden accent. Wooden bracelets fit perfectly with these earth tones and the brown chain makes the light color of the cardigan less flat. The earrings are made of natural materials and therefore match perfectly with the bracelets! And to stay with the natural, what plums hey! They are not to eat, too sour. But the color is beautiful! It gives a huge mess on the ground! And next to it is a blackberry bush, which is full of delicious blackberries every year. Gerben always makes jam of them (which I don’t eat because the thought of what kind of animal peed on it is making me not want to eat it!)
Would really appreciate it if you would share my outfit on Pinterest! Just hoover over the photo!
