What I’m Not Wearing

skirt, sweater and clutch: Selfmade
mesh dress: American Apparel

I wish I could say that I was wearing this. But unfortunately winter hasn’t ended, a fresh layer of snow is now falling as I’m typing this. Can’t wait for temperatures to go up a bit and being able to carelessly slip into some clothes and just walk out the front door without having to worry about adding 5 more layers, look for my other glove, a beanie, a scarf, an umbrella. Sick of winter, see those busted knees? I fell of my bike on a frozen street two weeks ago. Seriously thinking about spending next winter in a warmer climate.
Spring, hurry up please!

    Also done with cold (and also from Holland).
    Skirts are my thing and winter gives them no chance (unless wearing really thick jersey legging which are not my thing).
    Lovely outfit and thanks for sharing what u would wear πŸ™‚

    vreselijk dit weer inderdaad, geef mij maar zomer! Super outfit btw πŸ˜‰


  4. Marina says:

    Love your look!


  5. Sofie says:

    Couldn’t agree more. My knees look just like yours, so done with the cold, wet and slippery weather type. This outfit is just so perfect with the combination of those textures. I’m searching for some neoprene fabrics as well, where did you get yours? Boeken Amsterdam?

    I gave up biking for the rest of the winter after falling one too many times due to the ice… my knee is totally busted now. I hope you don’t slip again!

    Anyway, I’d love to know which fabric you used for that awesome sweater… is it neoprene? Can you make a DIY post for it? πŸ™‚

    Take care!

  7. Mona says:

    This is perfect! I can’t believe this is all self-made. Amazing. Are the skirt and the sweater both neoprene?

  8. Charlie says:

    This is so beautiful! I feel the same way about the heat πŸ™ It’s hard to be minimal when you need to wear 10 layers just to leave the house..

    As for next winter, I would suggest coming to Australia but it would be so hot here you wouldn’t be able to wear this outfit either πŸ™

  33. Sarah says:

    You read my mind with your layered combination of white mesh and asymmetrically wrapped white skirt! I am making a skirt with a similar idea. Gorgeous sweater too. I love your aesthetic, it’s similar to mine, and I appreciate following a blogger that can express it so beautifully!!!!

    Nice one !

  48. wllwproject says:

    I think people on the southern hemisphere on the other hand (or me at least) are craving for a little bit of a cool breeze at least!

  49. I love it!!! You’re the master of minimalism!


  50. Jenna says:

    Lovely outfit

    Would you do a post about how you dye your hair & which dyes you use to get the colour it s now?



  51. Rosa Shand says:

    That outfit is so fresh and clean and perfect and just ugh I love it! a fashion, style and music blog

  52. anabolio says:

    Truly amazing. Love it πŸ™‚

  53. I’m so ready for spring as well! Majorly loving your outfit, even if you only wore it inside! xx

  54. Such a sweet outfit, and I know I hate the weather here too my god!


  55. this is super perfect! what fabric is the top, it looks like some kind of neoprene? x

  56. The combination between the mesh skirt and the leather skirt is awesome! but to be honest the oversized leather jacket is too much…you look smaller

  57. Nathan Moy says:

    Love the self made pieces, is it made out of neoprene? I like it. For my last project I made a jumper with a similar bulky shape πŸ™‚ I also wish Spring would come sooner, I miss the days when it was 14-18 degrees outside, sighhh…..
