What I admire in other women’s personal style? Effortlessness. When I first started blogging, about 8 or 9 years ago, I remember feeling a bit insecure about the way I dressed. Not because I didn’t like my own style – it was my own style […]

Double denim. Not sure if I’ve ever shown a double denim look on the blog, but I have to admit it’s a combination I wear pretty often. Mostly black and grey denim, but the blue double denim isn’t a combination I avoid, especially now that I’m more and more into blue denim in general. So easy to wear! Super cool with a plain black or white tee, but equally awesome with a slightly more dressy top. Great with heels, just as awesome with flats. Or sneakers, of course, like the ones I’m wearing in this outfit post. Honestly, I haven’t stopped wearing them from the moment I took them out of their box. Paired with the red details it also feels a bit patriotic to be honest, but this is certainly a look I feel totally at ease in.
Which made me wonder: I tend to describe my style as ‘comfortable’. But what does that really mean? Sweatpants are comfortable, but I’m not wearing them outside my home (ok I admit: sometimes I do when grocery shopping, but I promise I wear fancy ones ;)). Heels hurt my feet like hell, but I can still feel comfortable in them when I’m wearing them in the right setting. Just because I know they look awesome. So what defines whether a piece of clothing or an entire outfit is ‘comfortable’ or not? I think I’ve found my definition of comfy dressing: to wear something that doesn’t make me feel self-conscious all the time. This can either mean that I’m dressed for the occasion or that I don’t have to adjust my top all the time. This can mean I just absolutely LOVE all the items I’m wearing and they make me feel like I look awesome also, or this can mean an outfit that allows me to do my daily activities in without feeling my clothes.
Have you ever thought of this? How would you describe you own style?
One of the benefits of the weather changing from super sunny to well.. slightly less sunny: being able to wear the trenchcoat that has been hanging in your closet for a while. Yay! I love pairing a bit of an effortless chiq classic – like that trench, or that cute little bag – with a pair of super baggy, ripped jeans and sneakers. So that’s what I did.
Now back to work, I already killed another 7am workout this morning, and I have to admit that I’m totally into working out before work right now. The moment the alarm clock goes off isn’t my favourite moment of the day, even though I consider myself a morning person, but the moment I get out of the shower, hop onto my bike to go to the office.. priceless.
