All my favorite fall colors in one outfit


sweatshirt: Forever 21 • Skirt: Ichi • boots: Footwork • tights: Veritas • scarf: C&A • earrings: Hema

Black, navy, grey, pumpkin orange and my latest color crush: lime green. Who knew they’d be the recipe for a perfect fall outfit? I first spotted these gigantic earrings (they really are quite big!) a few weeks ago when I went to the store to pick up new hangers for my closet. I hate it when they put jewelry stands riiiight next to the waiting line. Sneaky sales people! But I was good and I resisted. For a while. I know from my girlfriends that I’m not the only one to have that thing happen where a certain object of desire just nestles in my brain and I cant get it out of my head and then I suddenly find myself back at the store holding “my precious” and then feeling super guilty about it. Now, these earrings were only €3.95 but I probably won’t have to tell you that it happened with €50 dresses as well. Or with a vacation. 

That said, we’re yet again planning a getaway after the winter exams. How are we already half way through the semester!? There’s a never ending stream of scientific papers that need to be read and I have a few more assignments to finish in the upcoming 4 weeks. Hectic times over here! Thankfully, I have Thursday off and I was invited by a couple of PR agencies to come and take a peek at the upcoming collections. I’m pretty excited about the events, and have been debating what to wear already. 

Anyway, I’m rambling like a crazy person again and I should really start reading another paper.

Also: my shirt has polka dots on the shoulders. Can we say this is the cutest sweatshirt ever?

  • Totally recognized those earrings from your instagram. Oooh, I should probably start planning a winter-trip as well *dreams* (ps. love your scarf, such a pretty color as well!)

  • Nina van Boxtel

  • Mooi rokje! Ik zie je deze week bij onze press days wel zeker? 🙂 looking forward!

  • Oh you look so darling with that big ole scarf and the pleats detail in your skirt.

    Where are you planning on spending a holiday?

  • These colors all look wonderful together! I really love how you have so many great basics in your wardrobe because you can pair them in a ton of ways. Your pleated skirt here is wonderful! Great classic boots too!

    I hope you get through your last half of the semester in one piece! I know what you mean about reading academic papers all the time. It never ends and I have such a hard time catching up! We'll make it through though!

  • Amélie De Rycke

    schoon rokske!

  • I love your outfit! That skirt looks great with that shirt and scarf. Have fun on that events! 🙂

  • Oh die oorbellen zijn mooi en de outfit staat je echt goed. Het leuke aan de herfst is dat je nog niet echt een dikke jas nodig hebt en je kan je gewoon warm kleden met een zalige sjaal! Mission accomplished bij u ;)! Sabrina, x.

  • Okay, I love love love this outfit so much! Simple pieces, but so chic! I'm loving all these colors right now too!
    Sincerely, Sara

  • leuke outfit!

  • pumpkin, isn't that the most delicious color ever!

  • Bij mij is het ook super druk!! Maar geniet maar van donderdag!! En yes indeed! Polka-dots op de schouder = cuteness!

  • Mademoiselle Sophistique

    wat een overdreven schattig rokje!

  • Such a nice outfit for cooler weather! I really like that scarf! 🙂

    I know what you mean about continually thinking about an item too – I've just gone and bought a jacket online after I couldn't get it out of my head….I don't need another jacket, but I definitely wanted one, haha!

    Hope you manage to complete all of your assignments and study and aren't too busy! Enjoy teh events as your reward for working hard 🙂

  • So so cute!!

  • And thanks so much for your comment. You're always lovely. Things are ok, kind of. I just became a little "emotional" in front of the white screen of the computer, but it's ok. And how are you?
    Have a nice, not too busy!, week.

  • Michèle

    beautiful colors. love your look and your hair

  • Oh my, this definitely is the best fall outfit! That pumpkin orange scarf is perfect, and it looks so cozy 🙂 I'm definitely guilty of finding a "perfect" item, thinking about it for days, buying it, and feeling guilty. But it always turns out ok in the end! And good for you planning another getaway!

  • Ik kom waarschijnlijk donderdag in de voormiddag langs bij Media Mania 🙂 xo

  • Currently we have our mind set on Lisbon, but I kind of really would like to come to the USA again as this is the only vacation I get to make with the boyfriend this year. We're only afraid that February is not the best time to visit San Fran or Chicago because of the cold in the first and the heavy snowfall that can occur in the latter. And we don't want our trip to get cancelled last minute 🙂 xo

  • Haha, that's why I love reading your blog so much at the moment. You're going to the same things I am school-wise, haha. I think I could paper my entire house with the pages of the papers I have read so far! 🙁

  • Target is know for that! Maybe it's a good thing we don't have something similar in Europe, haha! xo

  • Lisbon sounds fun!

    Chicago would probably be quite snowy, but I'm not so sure about San Francisco. I was under the impression that being right on the water means they have much more similar/uniform weather all year long (though, within the city, they have "micro systems" where it can have different types of weather and temperatures in the same city so…)

    Good luck deciding!

  • Lady à la Mode
