A BRIGHT WINTER

soft-pink-winter-fashion-mode-style-streetstyle-trend-love-ootd
In Holland it’s already turning in to Fall
Rain Rain Rain, all day everyday
Its kind of depressing!
And in the winter it even get more depressing.
It gets dark early and the streets are almost empty.
Even the fashion gets more dark.

This Winter let’s try to make it a little bit brighter and go for some soft colors.
It will definitely help keeping up our spirits :)
