Finally, the sun is coming out and the weather is getting warmer and warmer (yeah). Time for some new outfits, combined with essential wardrobes pieces I already have in my closet. I just bought a new book (in Dutch) named ‘Dit is een goede gids’. It’s a guide to live a more sustainable life and it gives you lots of facts about the fashion industry and healthy (and unhealthy food). Most of the facts are quite shocking and it gives me a reason to reflect on our lives for now and for the future. For example, for a simple jeans and T-shirt produced in a fabric, it takes up to 10.000 liters of water! Quite shocking, so that’s why I am buying less denim styles now because denim never goes out of fashion. And you can wear them over and over again!
So while I was writing this blogpost, I asked myself: Am I really a denim lover? Denim has been hot for ages now and every year designers and brands come with new designs and creations. Let’s say, sometimes I like denim and I have days I don’t even like denim. Denim on denim gives me the feeling of Spring or even Summer because the colors are light and the light blue matches the clear blue sky! Denim also has one disadvantage for me; people say it makes me younger and childish. Well younger, that’s not a problem for me haha!
I bought these Levi’s jeans during my city trip in New York last year. If you didn’t know, Levi’s is a lot cheaper in the USA than in the Netherlands. This year I am going back to the States because I always wanted to make a road trip through San Francisco, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. A dream come true, but I have to wait till half September. So let’s say; patience is a virtue!
(thinking of buying a new pair of Levi’s Jeans in de States, but which model?)
About the denim jacket, well I have quite a history with denim jackets. I have had them in many colors, sizes, models but I always managed to get one stolen when I went to a café or club. A very depressing moment… and why do people even do that? People should have some respect and decency for other people’s stuff!
Hopefully this denim jackets stays with me for a really long time, because I really like the color and the oversized look of it. So am asking you now: ‘’Dear denim jacket, can we be friends forever?’’
