I managed to set my record over-sleeping on Wednesday, I woke up a bit after 10am, had no clue what day it was.. then it hit me…. oh shit…

No time to think what to wear, I came in the office at around 11:30, that sucked!

This outfit is kind of my little uniform for the past years! I have this jacket for 9 or 10 years, bought it on a flea market in Amsterdam and have been wearing it every year, I shit you not, It kind of lost its shape and the inside is totally ripped but I will never get rid of it or replace it for even a better fit,

same with the flats, and these must be my 7th pair all ready, the dress is prob 2 or 3 years old from the H&M and I wear it in all seasons, these items always travel with me wherever I go!!

funny is I have this green washed out military jacket for almost a decade too but hardly wear it in New York but every time I go to Europe I bring it and wear it the whole time?!?

    I think every girl has a saffety outfit that sticks with her through the years- something you pull on when you oversleep.
    haha, poor girl, I HATE being late! which doesn´t explain why I´m late quite a lot.

    I love it that you keep pieces you love (even though they are tattered) instead of throwing them out and just buying the next trends. It is good to mix the old and new…
    anyways, your “uniform” is very chic…I need to figure out a cuter uniform for myself instead of boring jeans, t-shirt crap…

    Het is zo fijn om iets te hebben waar je op terug kunt vallen (als je bijv. inspiratie-loos bent of gewoon een dag heb waarop je je minder voelt) :). Ik kom idd ook uit gelderland! Wel uit een inimienie stadje, namelijk Nijkerk (dichtbij Amersfoort). Maar wat grappig! Heb je in Arnhem ook de kunstacademie gevolgd? En wat voor werk doe je nu in NY? Echt een droom lijkt me dat om daar te wonen!

    Its so funny that you mentioned your “uniform.” My friend claims that I have a uniform as well and we refer to the look always as “the uniform.” It began with a simple pair of skinny J Brand jeans (originally Paige, but I’ve since upgraded), American Apparel t – shirt and Chuck Taylors (then, Sue London flats, but those wear quickly). Now, it includes denim cutoffs for when its hot, a hoodie for when its cold…mix and match and never any color.

    quite a fantastic little uniform there! it’s still put together and chic, and i love good ol’ trusty ol’ clothes… i have a dress that i always wear and have had forever too, and because it’s been washed so many times, it’s become the softest thinnest material ever – super comfortable and even a bit sheer :0)
