Hints of Green | Autumn Outfit

Autumn Outfit | hints of Green

Yes, I have mentioned that spring is just around the corner and that we should consciously start thinking about the changes we want to make in our beauty regimen. However, sunnier days do not necessarily lead to warmer temperatures in Belgium or the Netherlands, so I am still stuck to wearing clothes for autumn (not winter) weather! 

Fortunately for me I have no problem with that. I actually enjoy wearing warm, big, comfy sweaters or long and fluffy scarves. Well, wait. Let me take that back. There is one problem! I dress for the weather outside, but when it is colder outside people tend to turn on the heat more on the inside. Once you enter a building you are practically smacked in the face by the warmth causing me to quickly start feeling hot, my couperose will kick in making my face crazy red. You see, that can be a problem.

The situation was not very different when I was wearing this autumn outfit. I put on this really nice and comfy sweater that has a playful backside showing off a bit of skin. It is is loose fitting and allows air in, so it is a great piece of clothing when the weather is changing. I combined it with dark blue jeans, my comfortable grey ankle boots with wedges and some hints of green. I had actually picked out another bag for this outfit, a grey one, but the zipper broke.. and so I chose my trustworthy brown-grey bag chosen for school!

Sweater: Forever 21 - Shirt & Snake Ring: H&M - Jeans & Shoes: Zara Wear - Handbag: Accessorize - Necklace: I.Ma.Gi.N Jewels
We took the pictures on the street when it was raining and really windy, so my hair is looking rather messy but I like that effect.. because my hair never looks the way it should! So the pictures are realistic in that sense, ha ha. I wore my minimalistic silver necklace with the writing "Make a Wish", a silver sparkly knuckle ring and my snake ring! I absolutely love my snake ring. It was a great buy! My sister loved it too, so I got one for her as well! Well, I might just be able to wear this outfit a couple of times, before it starts getting really warm. How do you try to deal with the transition of cold weather outside and a warm temperature inside? Do you wear more layers... or?

  1. Love your outfit, especially the back of that sweater! So beautiful. :) It definitely is hard to transition from cold weather to warmer weather, so I usually start wearing my autumn clothes and stop wearing layers and big jackets! I'm really looking forward to warmer weather though :)

  11. All about layers. Especially when you are running behind your daughter when she suddenly makes a bold move towards the swing or the slide, you can get hot in a second.
    That green really suits you.

    1. I can imagine! I don't wear lots of layers.. I guess. Perhaps something to keep in mind more when dressing for the day! Thanks, Anne :)

  12. I know exactly what you mean, Natasja! I definitely go for layers and usually have basic sweaters or sweatshirts I throw on top of my "main outfit." Though, I do love the sunnier skies and crispy winds of early spring; it's just perfect, you don't have to freeze your butt off but you can still wear cozy shirts. Must say I'm really diggin' your blog :) And I love the back of your cardigan here and that bag.

    1. You're absolutely right. It is why I do love autumn weather.. it's just when you go inside and it's all... eeek, warm :P Aw, thanks so much, Kie :) I really appreciate that! You've got a lovely blog yourself!

  13. Mooi meid! Leuk om nog eens een outfit van jou te zien! Leuke sweater heb je aan, de achterkant heeft een mooi opgewerkt detail. En je laarsjes vind ik ook super!

    Vervelend ja om zo van koud naar te warm te gaan als je winkels in en uit gaat. Ik probeer dan laagjes fe dragen, een sjaal mijd ik dan en ik loop meestal met m'n jasje open. Dat helpt om me snel uit te kleden voor ik het al te benauwd krijg :)

  14. I like wearing layers and a tank top and a cardigan or a jacket is my favorite outfit. I love that black sweater you're wearing, I love such small details in the back! Oh, and your hair looks perfectly fine!

  15. I love that shade of green of your shirt perfectly paired to your NAIL POLISH! of course! I'm a nail polish freak and need to know what is the colour you're wearing! hahaha
    Of course these days is all about layers for me. I'm wearing a summer sleeveless dress with a longsleeve underneath!, stockings and ankleboots, and a light coat (which is the only one that actually still fits me at 7 months of pregnancy :P LOL

    1. Euhm, let me have a look! I used a BeYu nail polish in #147! It is quite green but has some blue in there as well. Quite a lovely shade :)

  16. Wait until you see my hair when it's raining AND windy outside! It ain't pretty. LOL! I like your outfit, especially the boots! I wear a lab coat at work so it keeps me warm and cool at the same time. :D
