Our last OOTD blogpost dates back from the 23rd of November 2017. It feels like ages ago, eventhough it’s only the 15th day of the new year. For Janet’s OOTD Seville was the location for the photo shoot, one of our favourite cities. In Bristol (UK) and Koblenz it was my turn to shine in front of the camera for outfit of the day blogpost number 13 already. In this one a top from the sustainable brand ZILCH is featured together with some second-hand pieces. How about you, do you combine second-hand and newly bought clothes in one outfit sometimes?
In both Koblenz and Bristol it was pretty cold outside. So tights were definately not my 1st choice, but I did it anyway. I just love thights with a beautiful pattern, like the one in the picture. Unfortunately the average pair of thights plus the fair and sustainable ones are a bit boring for me most of the time. Do you maybe know a sustainable brand that also offers beautiful wacky designs?
The coat is second-hand, from the store Reshare in Groningen. The skirt is second-hand too, from Markplaats. And, the organic black (wrap look) top with long sleeves is from fair fashion brand ZILCH. A few years ago already, I found the black scarf at vintage shop Recessie in Groningen. Another challenge, besides fair fashion thights, is finding nice fair fashion shoes or boots. The boots I’m wearing in the pictures I bought at TK Maxx and to be honest I have no idea whether they are anywhere near sustainable. On the other hand, in my closet you can also find quite a few pairs of second-hand boots and shoes.
One of our must sees in Bristol was the Bristol Suspension Bridge. Afterwards we enjoyed tea, scones and clotted cream at fancy (and chic) brasserie The Ivy Clifton, in the Clifton Village neighbourhood in Bristol. Delicious!

At The Ivy Clifton bar, Janet took pictures for this article. This is her, trying to get some great shots. Which can be quite challenging ;-).
