I always wanted to be a 90s baby. And I guess I sort of am. Although born in the 80s, I basically grew up in the 90s. So I saw my mom wearing the real mom jeans and oversized sweaters – accompanied by the big hair. She didn’t wear the flatforms though, my “Spice Girl” shoes as I call them. So retro, yet so 2016 and so me. I love taking inspiration from what has been. Why change a winning team, hah? I thought so. Anyway, this look was actually my travel look flying in to New York. I just got the sweater the day before leaving, so I figured I might as well just wear it straight away. I’m that kinda girl, if I’m really excited about something I want to put it on before even leaving the store (or apartment). Or wear the new shoes and put my “old” ones in the box of the newly purchased pair. As I’m slowly transitioning into my Spring wardrobe, I’m in desperate need of a big closet clean-out. Living out of a suitcase for a couple of months in the past half year, I learned how to make the most of a smaller amount of stuff. I don’t actually need those 20 blazers or 80 t-shirts, now do I? So my plan, when I get back to Amsterdam, is to keep everything I love, statement sweaters like the one above, and get rid of all that I don’t wear (enough). Making someone else happy with that dress that has been hiding in my closet for so long, instead of dusting it off every once in a while – deciding I’ll wear it “someday”. No more!ย I’d rather have someone else enjoying the piece than me forgetting about it. Clothes are there to be worn. And that’s just what they’ll do.

  • Clothes are really made to be worn, and that’s exactly the mantra I’m leaving by since I relocated far away from home. Living from a suitcase for the past 6 months has been a challenge when you’re so used to have Zara next door! haha
    Either way I love where I’m leaving now, and I learnt how to make the most out of it and just keep the most precious and complimenting, still completely in accordance to my style, pieces of my wardrobe! x

    That’s great! I’m also living with a suit case for some months. It’s hard sometimes, but mainly is a way to get creative.
