Every wandering girl loves… knitting!

‘Did you just say knitting?’ Why yes I did! I’m in love with cosy sweaters and chunky scarves, so what could be more fun than knitting your own design? Inspired by brands as LN Beanies and Wool and the Gang, that use supersoft materials for their handmade clothing, I bought myself some yarns of soft grey wool from Lang and started knitting a scarf. I’m using knitting needles of 9mm, perfect for thick wool.

If you’re a beginner like me and could use some help, Wool and the Gang offers kits to make your own clothing, including high quality wool and instructions on how to knit it. I bought myself the books of LN Beanies, which include patterns and instructions for different designs. It even shows you how to make a bikini! So forget about old ugly sweaters and boring designs. Knitting is cool and if you’re a real wandering girl like us, you’ll be knitting your own outfit in no time!

OOTD: Sunny Sunday

Here comes the sun!

Sunny days like today make me smile. Landscapes are still frosty and beautiful in the morning, but when the sun rises the whole world lights up.  On days like this I have to get outside, enjoy the fresh air and take in some vitamin D. Hello sunshine!

I picked a comfortable yet feminine outfit to enjoy this beautiful day. The skirt I’m wearing is the most comfortable skirt for cold weather. It is so soft and warm, I have been wearing it a lot this winter! I combined it with a simple loose t-shirt with a beautiful see through pattern on the back.To finish the outfit I put on my favorite winter coat and scarf. Ready to conquer the day!

See you soon!

OOTD: Cosy comfort

Brace yourselves winter is coming!

Winter is right around the corner so it’s the perfect time to invest in scarfs and beanies. It’s the time of the year to get cosy and comfortable, not only on the couch but also when you want to leave the house. I love classic black, grey and white items in my closet. I’m addicted, easy to combine and always classy.

Here I am wearing my favorite black skinny jeans. They are so comfortable and figure hugging at the same time! I combined it with my favorite grey and silver knitted top from Vila and a printed scarf. A very easy combination, but still interesting with the different materials and prints! To go outside I put on a beanie and a warm coat to protect me during the cold wintery days. The black boots I’m wearing are the most comfortable shoes I ever owned and they can be combined endlessly.

I absolutely love this outfit, because it is just so freaking cosy and comfortable!

OOTD: Layering up!

Days are getting shorter, the weather’s getting colder, and Christmas is just around the corner. This must be my favorite time of the year!

But not only the gifts and hot cocoa’s are making me jump for joy… Finally I can wear all those chunky sweaters I’ve been buying. Comfort is my game, so I love to layer up different sweaters to create an easy outfit. Another reason why I prefer layers during fall and winter, are the overheated stores (the horror!). Think of yourself walking down the street, wearing your warmest duffle coat with a huge scarf wrapped around your neck… and then you enter a store where it’s 35 degrees (celsius, in case you’re wondering) and you start sweating like a pig! Or am I the only person who feels this way :)??

Anyway, my latest buy is this comfy sweater, which I’m wearing over an all black outfit. Because neutral colors can sometimes make your outfit a little dull, I always add bold accessories, such as this necklace from Madewell. I don’t wear a lot of high heels, but these booties are just so comfortable and easy to mix and match. Lately, I’ve been living in this outfit. So I think it’s time for some shopping again ;)
