marled 'graduator' knit: c/o Bench - skinny jeans: H&M - coat/cardigan: Sheinside - purse: Emmy Wieleman - boots: Dream in Green via Zalando
You probably thought the "perfect layers" title referred to my outfit, right? Well, it's true, but it also refers to my hair. I've had a haircut a few weeks ago (you might have noticed in this holiday party outfit post), and ever since, my hair has been DIVINE. I've discovered that, while I hate layers that are shorter than about mouth-length, my hair looks its best when it has layers starting at chin-length. I don't have to do anything to it but scrunching in some styling mousse if I want my hair to have extra body, and letting it air dry, and this is what I end up with: full, naturally wavy hair. It's like it has come alive after years of hibernation, and my locks are making me very happy these days.
The outfit is good as well, of course: I'm wearing a few of my favourite pieces. The skinny jeans are pajama-soft and even though I have been wearing them to death for about a year now, they still look great. The cardigan/coat hybrid is heavy, cozy, beautifully burgundy and very versatile - see me pair it with my mint oversized scarf here. Lastly, the knit sweater has a lovely cowl neck and is slightly longer at the back, which makes it pair perfectly with leggings. Also, it keeps my back warm during these cold winter days, so thank you, sweater!
