The green dream

11 October 2017

There's nothing more inspiring to me than those first days of October when the leaves start falling off the trees and you can slowly see the world change into a more colorful place. Lately I haven't been feeling like myself. Mostly because I'm unhappy with my work situation, I've felt spiritless and quite lonely. I'm disappointed because I'm not where I thought I would be at this point in my life and I've been beating myself up over it. But I'm coming to realize that that is just life, full of unexpected situations but also full of possibilities. The arrival of autumn came just in time for me to start feeling hopeful again and draw some positive energy out of small moments like collecting pretty leaves on walks through the park and putting together some new fall outfits like this one...

Since it's one of my favorite colors, especially for fall, a forest green coat has been on my wish list for as long as I can remember. So this year I walked down every store and tried on basically every one I could find when this Bershka piece really hit the spot. I ordered it online and luckily it arrived just in time for our little trip to Amsterdam. I wore my newest addition with a floral H&M dress and burgundy tights. I'd normally never think of combining green with burgundy but as it usually goes I accidentally threw this on and happened to like it.

It was my first time in Amsterdam and I had the best time exploring the city and its many, many shops, coffee bars and foodie spots. I'll put up a list of my favorite addresses soon so stay tuned!
