Living on the edge of a forest is awesome this time of the year. Apart from having to take what feels like a million fallen leaves of your cars front window every morning, it really is a beautiful sight. Our street is a big explosion of yellows, reds and browns right now and I couldn’t love it more. The boyfriend and I went for a walk last weekend, and I took advantage of the opportunity to get the beautiful colors in my blog posts as well for you to enjoy. By the time this post goes online, most leaves will have fallen, so only next year will I get to do another all-fall outfit post.

The t-shirt I am wearing in todays photos is probably my best purchase of the season. I love everything about it. The colors, the neckline, the fit, … it’s so pretty! When I first spotted it on the J.Crew website I actually preferred the grey version, but a friend convinced me to go with the navy instead and that was probably the best advice she ever gave me style-wise, haha. When the package arrived, and I opened it… seriously, you do not want to know how happy I was. It was baaaaad. Also, the red skirt again. Sorry guys, I really do wear my staple pieces over and over again. 

Remember the post I did a few weeks back, the one where I asked you guys for advice on picking new ankle booties? As you can see I went for basic instead of western-inspired, even though most of you recommended the latter. I’m a terrible listener, and my mom would agree to that. I just felt like these would be easier to style with what I already have in my wardrobe, and trust me: they have been on my feet everyday for two weeks now! I forgot them at my parents’s on Sunday, and I really do miss having them as an option when I go out in the mornings. They’re right on trend, and very comfortable to boot. And because I still had a coupon and found an extra sale code online, I got them for a little more than half of the original price. That’s what I call a triple score! 

I hope you’re all having a lovely week!

I’ll be back with you on Monday.

    Oh, I just love this look (I just got a red pencil skirt too, so it all feels extra inspiring today!)

    I can't believe fall is coming to an end! Many of the trees here have lost all their leaves.. I'm not ready to transition into winter yet! I am loving the booties though! Where did you get your earrings from?

  3. 7 November 2013 / 20:19

    Love this look! It perfectly embodies fall! And I love the details in that top. 🙂

  4. 7 November 2013 / 20:21

    I'm on the hunt for a pair of black booties. There are just too many options out there! Have a great rest of your week!!

    Jij staat zo goed met rijke kleuren he! En oe, J.Crew, word ik hebberig van! Geen douanekosten gehad?

    That shirt is amazing! I can see why you love it because it looks great on you! I love this time of each year too, even though I'm afraid I'm going to slip on wet leaves (not that this happened, nor do I have a bruise on my right butt cheek because of it lol). I really love the ankle boots you picked! They're classic and simple, which means you'll be able to wear them with everything!

    The fall colors in this post are just so gorgeous! I'm hoping to get some nice fall pictures in the woods tomorrow. This time of the year is great for outfit pictures.
    Also, I really like this outfit too. I always enjoy how you remix your staple pieces like this perfect red skirt. This new shirt is awesome too! It looks like it could pair with so many different things. I like the boots you chose too. I agree that this style is easier to style with a ton of different things.

    Hoe zalig dat je naast een bos woont! En ook kei leuke t-shirt!

  11. 8 November 2013 / 09:44

    That tee is lovely! And I really like how well all of the pieces in this outfit work together so well! Those black ankle boots look great, and a very practical purchase. Shame you forgot them at your parents, but hopefully not long before you can pick them up again 🙂

    Cozy / cosy. Realise / realize. It's like tomato and tomato. I was always taught that both spellings are correct, but I opted for the preferred American -s because I also use the American word "fall" and not the English "Autumn" throughout the rest of the post 🙂 But thank you. English is not my mother tongue, so I'm sometimes not sure what is American and what it English and could use some help at times 😉

  13. 8 November 2013 / 13:23

    Oh noes! Sounds painful! I've had a few near-ground experiences too with the whole sidewalk being covered in a mush of leaves. Especially now that it has been raining so much!

  14. 8 November 2013 / 13:26

    En het was nog -30% ook! Neen, geen douanekosten gehad. Ik laat dat door mensen die ik ken bij Janssen Pharma meebrengen als ze op zakenreis gaan 🙂 Volgende week gaat de vader van mijn vriend, dus als je iets gezien hebt kan ik het laten meebrengen misschien? In dollarprijzen ook dus zijn de prijzen een beetje minder! xo

    Ik vind de t-shirt heel tof! Mooie outfit, de rok staat je mooi 😀

  16. 8 November 2013 / 19:27

    Fall colors are so pretty, it's only after the leaves turn into a brown muddy pool that I get sad about winter. Actually, that's a lie, now I get to look forward to Christmas!

    love that tee! so unique and adds a lot of interest to the still awesome outfit. Those boots are also super cute 🙂

  18. 10 November 2013 / 22:11

    Staat je prachtig Nikki! En oh J.Crew, echt één van mijn favorieten toch!

  19. 10 November 2013 / 23:14

    I really like your new shirt and your red skirt, I can tell why you would want to wear them a lot! I think it's a good sign when you find yourself using staple pieces again and again, that means that they were definitely worth the investment!

  21. 11 November 2013 / 11:50

    Wat een mooie foto's! Dat shirtje staat je prachtig!

  22. 11 November 2013 / 12:21

    Uuh mijn bos is helemaal groen-uitgewaaid, dus geen echte herfst hier jammer genoeg 🙁 Ik wou echt nog wat herfst-foto's, de jouwe maken mij jaloers :p En jammer dat je die Westerns niet genomen hebt maar deze zijn inderdaad wel echt makkelijk te stylen op alles 😀

  23. 11 November 2013 / 12:31

    Jij staat zogoed met die rode rokjes he! Helemaal terecht dat je ze zoveel draagt 😉

  24. 11 November 2013 / 19:43

    superkoddig rokje! Mooi!

  25. 12 November 2013 / 19:31

    You look SO cozy! Love love love that top 🙂

    Héél mooi! Altijd een super combo navy blue & rood. Het blousje geeft het nog eens extra pit. Love love! ^^

    I totally love that top too – I missed out on it last year, but I think it's made a comeback, maybe it's not too late!

  29. 16 November 2013 / 01:03

    You do look cozy! I am currently in love with a tan wool blazer from Gap but hoping it will go on sale for the holidays so I can have the classiness of a blazer but the warmth of a coat. You picked some great boots by the way!

    Living near the forest is really wonderful, nothing can be better than those calm and relaxing strolls in the woods! The area is so picturesque and beatiful! I've got to say you look like a real model, so comely and chic! I also like the way you've styled those garments, it turned out as a brilliant outfit:)

  31. 17 November 2013 / 19:33

    okay, now you've got me aching away for a blue blazer! i just threw a doppelganger like skirt into the wash this morning and love the way you've paired this one up with navy accents. you look beautiful Nikki! boot LOVE-sesh 🙂

    we live on the forest's edge too, there's nothing like raining leaves as you're walking along. it's gorgeous this time of year. happy continued explorations!!
