Today I want to share two recent style inspirations. One is quite general, and the other is very specific.
I spent a lot of time in the Netherlands last month. As always, I was inspired by how pulled together and interesting people look, in the most practical and real way. The street styles are hip, practical, casual and Trendy Classic. I especially admire how those older than me get on with life with verve, stamina, humour, and a great sense of style. People frequently wear jeans and pants because the Dutch bike and walk almost everywhere, although you see a lot of shirt dresses and flared skirts in the Summer too.
Generally flat, with an incredible system of designated bike paths, the country is set up for biking. It’s a very healthy way of life, and I love it. It definitely impacts what people wear, which is generally casual, current, comfortable, and with shoes that go the distance. My own style is a little dressier, yet I relate to a lot of how people dress in the Netherlands. I aspire to dressing just as stylishly when I grow up.
I remix the floral slim boyfriend jeans with a variety of white, blue and blush tops, a white lace camisole, dark and light denim jackets, white sneakers, light blue loafers, and a light blue and blush bag. Here are the exact items from my wardrobe that I used to create outfits with the new blue floral jeans. Yes, I wear denim on denim. Yes, I pattern mix, and yes I’m wearing neutrals from head to toe for a change.
Over to you. Have any inspirations positively impacted your own style recently? If so, feel free to give them a shout-out in the comments below.
