Falling for Fall | Indian Summer Outfit


During my three-week trip in the Netherlands I actually managed to take pictures of one outfit that I wore. Honestly, my regular go-to outfit were these really big (I mean XXXXXXXL) lounge pants for men and a comfy shirt. Perhaps a bathrobe  as well if I was cold. I'm fashionable like that. Anywho, every now and then I ventured outside for a yummy coffee or to not be an entirely anti-social person. 

It was still quite sunny outside, but the lovely Indian summer weather (it took me forever to understand what the hell an indian summer is... apparently it is late summer weather around September - I learn something new everyday) leaves you wondering whether you should or should not take that jacket with you. After having grown up in the Netherlands... I've come to realize that one should always take a jacket with you (and perhaps a scarf if you get cold easily). 


My sister and I went to Amsterdam to check out the pop-up Polette store and try out some yummy food. Whenever I am in Amsterdam I feel quite nostalgic, because it takes me back to when I was 17 and attended a concert every biweekly weekend. Oh, the memories. I'll spare you! I wore my new grey jeans from Primark and combined this with my new green sweater from -you can guess it- also Primark! It is quite a thin vest, so I figured I needed a jacket! I had only taken my black coat with me, so I tried on my mom's green jacket and it fitted. An upside to gaining weight: I now fit more of my mom's clothes. Hmm, is that really an upside, though?! I wore my pretty striped black and white shirt, but I feel like this has become too small for me (notice the boobies. Funny story: the top button actually popped open just as I got out of the train. Yup. That was fun). So this is the last time I am wearing it for now, anyways. With my good-ole trustworthy low converse on and my brand new Polette eyewear I was ready to face the day. 

Jacket: some store my mom shops at - Striped Shirt: Zara - Jeans & Sweater: Primark - Glasses: c/o Polette Eyewear - Shoes: Converse 
I tend to complain about any kind of weather (though my favorite definitely is spring), because it is always too hot, too cold, or both at the same time. The Indian summer definitely is both at the same time for me. I get all hot from the sun and warmish temperature, but cold when walking in the shadows and with wind coming from everywhere. At least this was an outfit that helps me with falling for Fall! I am already looking forward to wearing more sweaters and scarves! I am on the look out for colorful scarves. Have you seen a good one? I am also trying to wear more comfy and warm sweaters before layering it with a jacket... let's hope I don't get sick! Are you falling for fall too?

  1. Oooh nice, Natasja! This is such a fun outfit! It looks so youthful. Well, I wish we have Spring or Fall here. The only seasons we have are wet and dry. Soooo boring! haha! Thanks for the beautiful look! I should update my eyeglasses, too, before the year ends. xoxo

  5. Oh zo jammer van je bloesje want ik vind het echt heel erg mooi. Ik wil ook al lang zo'n khaki jasje/vest want ze zien er altijd zo leuk uit, maar op de één of andere manier passen ze dan toch weer niet helemaal binnen mijn stijl en dus laat ik ze maar. Jij staat er beeldig mee! xo

  10. I was falling for fall when we still had Indian Summer here, but the last week has been grey and rainy, which makes falling for fall a little hard.

  11. Ik vind het echt een super leuke outfit Natasja! :) Dat kaki staat je goed! En ik ben ook echt fan van je bril :)
    Amsterdam is voor mij een beetje onbekend terrein, ik ben er één keertje geweest en toen hebben we vooral de typische dingen gezien. Ik vond het wel een super toffe stad, ooit ga ik dus nog eens terug! ;)

    Liefs,

  14. I'm so glad it's finally fall weather because I hate the warmer weather! (And I actually learned meaning of the term 'indian summer' from a kdrama, of all places) I really like your (mom's) jacket + the striped shirt, though I'm sure you could always sew back the button. Or pretend to be a sexy secretary LOLjks
    I've seen some really cute (and oversized) scarves at Zara and Topshop recently, so check there? :3
