What to wear crisis in Brussels

In continuation of what I have posted for the 'Fans of Flanders'...Here I talk about my other blog Street Tailors.

Since I am a street style blogger it is a part of my daily routine to observe how people dress. Even if I don’t have a camera with me (which I usually do) I just can’t stop looking. I must say I get some reactions because of that, but who would like to be gazed at from head to toe? However this is not what I actually wanted to talk about.

While I’m writing this post the sun is shining brightly and it is 15 C degrees outside (pretty good weather for Belgium?!). At this point if you would have a ‘what to wear?’ crisis and look at people through the window, you could never decide what to wear.  I mean this is what I used to do all my life – I would just look through the window and decide what to wear, because people dress accordingly to the weather (at least in my country). Yeah right, in Belgium it would never work!

Today I see people wearing sweaters, t-shirts, fur coats, boots, shorts, sandals, leather jackets….and the list is endless! How could I ever dress accordingly to the weather?

So you just have to take a risk. Whatever you decide to wear it is not going to work, or will work for 5 minutes and after an hour maybe for another five minutes. This is what you have to deal with when you are living in Belgium. Constant change of weather, constant headache of what to wear!

From another point of view you get the absolute freedom to choose from all over your wardrobe!

P.S. Don’t forget to take an umbrella with you!
