Autumn is probably my favourite season. Sure it's not about the weather - Autumn in Belgium is usually rain, rain and more rain, which is kind of depressing. - but it's hard to dwell on that when the streets are colourful and it's finally cold enough to snuggle up in your favourite sweater or hide under a blanket with a cup of hot tea after a long day. There is something about autumn that screams 'just relax'.

Around this time of the year I am always excited to pick outfits. I'm sure 1/4 of my wardrobe is meant for when it gets colder. When I came to Finland I brought a wide selection of warm clothing so I could mix and match.

That's why I want to show you some of my favourite outfits of the moment. I'm all about wearing black these days - well, when am I not, maybe that's the real question. Hopefully I can find the time to take outfit pictures soon so you can see the outfits in action too :-) fingers crossed it'll happen.


First is an outfit I wear when it's not too cold outside. My outfits have to be comfy no matter what, so I just pair some black skinny jeans with a knit jumper. I also like to wear my leather jacket. Leather jackets are great because they are wind-proof, but they're still stylish. For shoes I've been loving my new burgundy Vans. The thick sole helps to keep my feet warm on the cold ground and again these are just super comfy. I top it off with a chunky scarf, a hat and some jewelry.

Another favourite of mine is the parka coat. Needless to say I wear it all the time during autumn and winter, again paired with some skinny jeans and possibly a flannel shirt. I bought a new flannel shirt from H&M last week; the fabric is soft and warm, perfect for this time of the year. Boots are necessary on cold winter days so I'll be wearing those often. The boots I have aren't as cool as these ones, unfortunately! Finally, for makeup I like to keep things simple, as usual. I focus on perfecting my foundation and keep the rest neutral. But I will be showing you my makeup routine in detail later so keep your eyes peeled for that!

What's your favourite thing to wear in autumn?

  1. Super cute outfits! I think I'd wear the first outfit like constantly.

  2. Veel zwart: zo zie ik het graag! En het ziet er allemaal heel stijlvol uit ook!

  3. Mooie collages, hele toffe inspiratie.

  4. UHM, I LOVE EVERYTHING (except the bag), and I'm pretty sure we have similar tastes. The first outfit just looks so ~badass~, and I'm really liking the boots in the second set. I'm still trying to find a parka I like, just because I think they just look so good with ankle-height boots. Shopping is hard, man.

    1. I'm with you on that one, the bag is like the only of the bunch where I think 'I could easily replace that'. And yes, parkas are awesome! Glad you like these outfits! Hoping to be brave enough and show them off while actually wearing them :D

  5. Oh, such cool picks!

    Lovin' the outfits. #2 is a big fave :)
