Another outfit I wore to work. It made me feel like an extra on Almost Famous, and that's pretty much the best possible feeling to have. Except for the feeling of that first bite of a perfectly cheesy pizza slice. Or that feeling of rolling yourself into your big, poofy duvet for a night of sleep before a morning that doesn't require you to get up early. And sex, obvi. BEST things.

When you've reached the point of black-ankle-boot-saturation like I have (seriously, I really do have all the black ankle boots a girl could ever need... I think), you start branching out. Enter: GREY ANKLE BOOTS. Now, I don't think I need these in every possible rendition, but I do think it's worthwhile to have (ankle)boots in a lighter neutral shade if you love wearing them. These grey ones usually look nicer with bare legs, light trousers and longer hemlines - at least when I'm not wearing tights. I have way too many rules for myself when it comes to outfits. Like, when you're wearing a knee/midi length skirt or dress, your bottom half becomes kind of crowded when you hack it up in skirt hemline/calves/black ankle boots. A softer shade of boots is more versatile and flattering in that regard, and that's where these grey babies come into play.

HA, I never cease to amaze myself with how much I can over-analyze the most random things. I guess that proves I was born to be a writer/PhD researcher.

And the beautiful fall weather continues! I got to wear this flirty little get-up to the office last week. Not exactly very professional with the short skirt and the bare legs and toes, but it's black and white and it has a BLAZER, yo. It's not like I'm Donald Trump, after all. I'm just a PhD researcher. I could show up at the office in a tracksuit with JUICY in big fat letters over my ass and it'd still be totally OK, so this absolutely qualifies as professional in my context.

I absolutely love these shoes. They were only 30€, the heel height is super comfortable, and they are both retro 90s and quite modern. I'd been looking for a pair of mules for ages, so I'm really glad I found an affordable option that doesn't kill my feet. 

And they make my legs look about a mile long.

cardigan: c/o Boho Amsterdam - t-shirt: COS - denim shorts: Levi's - boots: Koah - necklace: Lobogato

I didn't visit ANY festival this summer (kinda bummed out about missing Neil Young and The Pet Shop Boys at the Lokerse Feesten though), but that doesn't mean my outfits can't ROCK OUT RIGHT????

Lulz so corny. Still, who doesn't love a good bohemian piece? This cardigan was kindly gifted to me by the people behind Boho Amsterdam, a new webshop that specializes in trendy, boho garments - the sort of stuff that the free spirited cool girl in a teen drama series would wear. I quite like the loose knit and the mix of colours: warm and neutral, but still vibrant. Perfect paired with a simple jeans & tee outfit. If you see anything you like, you can order it using the code they made especially for you: THESTYLINGDUTCHMAN15. My favourite piece is this burgundy pleather skirt, gooorgeous colour. My own cardigan has sadly already sold out - it is a very nice piece after all.

I'm going back to watching House of Cards and drinking wine. Ah, weekend, how I love thee.
