The last weekend before New Year I spend a few precious days with my familiy at this gorgeous castle near Maastricht, celebrating my parents 40th wedding anniversary. On days like these, when you don’t know what the activities will be, I always dress “safe” and so I usually make a combination of my favorite classics. This time I combined my pinstripe jacket (how classic can you go) with a pair of brogues (truly classics) and my ever favorite Chanel bag (classic of classics). Off course, the lastest addition to my vintage collection, a big Gucci scarf was not to be missed. Already such a big favorite that, I can tell you right now, you will see many more times to come. I guess everybody has his own favorites and classics that can’t be missed and these are definitely mine.

    I especially love this outfit! That looks like a great scarf- Oof. Are your brogues Zara this season, and are they comfy? They look it, but I have bad luck with getting really hard, so-stiff-it-hurts-to-walk shoes in similar styles.. I’ve been thinking leather would be my best bet at comfort!

    Actually the brogues are a few seasons old. They were getting dusty in my closet until I rediscoverd them this season. Thanks again for your lovely comments. xo Hanneke
