Winter has officially kicked in! After a couple days of snow, a frosty wind is now ruling over The Netherlands making it hard to dress stylishly! For this outfit I combined a classic black hat and coat with a warm coatigan (it’s a coat, it’s a cardigan, it’s a coatigan!) and pair of funky and very affordable laced up combat boots.

I’m in love with these combat boots I picked up at Forever 21 while on holiday in the USA!. The brown version of these beauties caught my attention, but that one unfortunately was not avaible in my size.
On the top shelf of the shoe rack at Forever 21 a sign saying ‘Boots 30% Off’ was hiding behind a pair of boots. At 5’11 I’m a lot taller than most Americans for whom the sign was out of sight. Without realizing that the sign wasn’t ‘out there to be seen’ I went to the cash registry and got surprised when my boots turned out to be full priced! Apparently the 30% off promotion had ended already, but since the sign hadn’t been removed the employe honored my discount. Lucky me! Customer service in the USA rocks.
