Summer is so close and we have been having so many great and warm summer days this year already. Summer in the Netherlands is never that warm, so besides the occasional dress or playsuit that I would wear on exceptionally hot days, you would not really see me in anything other than jumpsuits, midi dresses, culottes or linen trousers during the summer days that I in the Netherlands. It’s just something that I personally feel most comfortable in.

Last week, while I was planning net content for this week, I was going through some of my blog posts again and saw my ‘go-to spring look’. That got me thinking that I thought it would be fun to describe my go-to summer look for this year. So what I’m wearing in this outfit is such a good representation of what I would normally wear on a summer day in the Netherlands.

Graphic tees

This year I can’t seem to stop buying graphic tees. I invested so much money in graphic tees this year already. Tees with text on them, tees with illustrations, a band tee or a tee with a print on it, those are usually the ones I like to get. To me it comes as no surprise that a graphic tee is such a staple in my summer wardrobe. I honestly think a graphic tee is such a staple to have in everyone’s wardrobe this summer, as they are such good pieces to dress down an outfit.


Like I said, I can mostly be found in a pair of culottes during the summer season. Two years ago I really discovered the culottes and noticed that I can actually pull them off. Ever since I have been trying to build my culottes collection, however I usually end up buying black pairs of culottes as I feel like they are the only colour of trousers that look good on me.

Straw bag

The latest addition into my wardrobe is a straw bag. I had been wanting to buy a round straw bag ever since April, but only bit the bullet this weekend. I feel like straw bags are such a gorgeous summer wardrobe items. They make an outfit look and feel very French Riviera, which is my definition of a beautiful, picturesque summer. I am so happy that I finally invested in a straw bag and I love this one, but I realised that I probably could have gotten it for so much cheaper if I would have waited until my trip to Spain, as they also sell these sorts of bags at the markets in Spain.

Espadrille trainers

Finally I also love wearing my espadrille trainers during the summer season. Just like I see a straw bag as such a French Riviera summer staple, I also find that espadrilles cannot be missed in a girl’s summer wardrobe. I have actual pairs of espadrilles but find that these espadrille trainers, as I like to call them, are most comfortable to walk in. These espadrilles of mine are actually quite old already, but I find that so many high street stores do these espadrille trainers nowadays!

What I'm wearing:
Pretty Little Thing denim jacket
Reclaimed Vintage tee
ZARA culotte
Even & Odd espadrille trainers (similar)
Primark bag (similar)


  1. These are all such great summer staples! Culottes and straw bags are definitely what I love during summertime too, and I really want to get myself a pair of espadrille trainers too! ♥︎ xx

    1. Thank you Pinja! Definitely get yourself a pair of espadrille trainers babe, they will look so cute on you! :) xx

  2. Het is alsof ik mijn eigen go to summer outfit voorbij zie komen in de tekst, ik draag letterlijk hetzelfde in de zomer haha! Voor de afwisseling combineer ik het soms ook met een midi rok :).
