I don't usually fall for off-the-runway trends. I admire the craftsmanship, the creativity and the artistic vision of haute couture, yet I will never be an Anna dello Russo, wearing outrageous ensambles straight off the catwalk. Even with all the money in the world, I would rather stay comfortable while experimenting with my own idea of luxury.
And the idea of luxury I absolutely love to identify myself with is By Malene Birger, the quintessential Danish brand that has completely won me over ever since I used to live in Denmark. You probably remember this post, when I wore the brand for the first time. My love affair with By Malene Birger has continued ever since and I am always the happiest when I get the chance to wear the brand. The luxurious feel of the fabrics or maybe simply the Scandinavian lifestyle woven into the clothes are two of the main factors making me fall for the brand more and more each time.
This time around it is thanks to Rum Amsterdam that I met my favourite Danish luxury brand again. The store bursts with high-quality garments, featuring incredible Scandinavian labels such as Dante6 , Anina Bing, Hunkydory and By Malene Birger of course.
After my first date with By Malene Birger in Amsterdam, I couldn't ignore the urge to wear the brand once more. On this occasion, I went for this absolutely gorgeous coat which was also extremely practical as the weather in Amsterdam definitely still calls for more layers. Is summer ever going to properly arrive here?
But back to my look now. As per usual, I am a sucker for LBD's. If last time my little black dress was a body-con, calf-length one, this time I wanted to feel as comfortable as possible in a very boho-looking number. Adding the coat, the heels and the classic cross-body bag from Liebeskind made me look nothing but boho though. Nonetheless, I felt pretty fearless in this outfit, embracing my femininity while showing some skin. I have to admit I really crave getting a proper sun tan, but until then, you will have to get used to my pale skin.
Huge thanks to RUM Amsterdam again for letting me play with their magic wardrobe! Don't forget to pay this incredible store a visit. It will surely give you a memorable shopping experience!

Let me know what you think about my styling risk. Would you ever pair a casual, summer dress with a tailored coat?
