Today is the hottest day of the year here -at least so far- in the village (aka Brussels).
So, I decided to take the sun with me and hang it around my neck.
As for the beach? I took the colour of the sand and put it on my culottes.
I want this day to go by quickly, the night to arrive even faster – ah..those summer nights, I’m such a big sucker for them.
Especially being in the romantic mood I’m right now….
I might as well have :)
There are moments in which I channel the child within me or the ’80s or both since I’m a child of the ’80s. And then I go and find these cute jumpers that I would normally never wear outside the house.
But the weather is finally better and we all get a little softer I guess…
It’s actually very rare that I like everything about my outfit on any given date. It might be the accessories, it might be that my skirt is a little bit too short or a little bit too tight, or that when I walk you can see the stupid white socks I put on…
That’s why I was so thrilled to shoot this girl at the bus stop the other day. I loved everything about her look, the shoes, the trench, and, most of all, the posture.
I’m a tall girl that recently started dating a short(er) guy.
I like him, he makes laugh, he’s handsome, he’s good at the more intimate stuff as well.
And my mom is gonna freak out :)
In addition to having to overcome the societal taboos of going out with a shorter guy, I also have to adapt my shoe collection a little bit – no more heels, yes more flats.
Flats for every occasion.
As much as we all love a good, sky-rocket high heel, I find ballet flats to be some of the most beautiful shoes one can wear.
Browsing through theoutnet.com, I think it’s a very good opportunity for me to start investing in some pairs now that it’s sales time!
I don’t know if this new relationship will work out, at least I can go stylish about it :-p
I was at Hamburg this past weekend with my girlfriends, just for a couple of days away from the village (aka Brussels).
I’m not sure if the city is beautiful or not, I know for a fact though that it has its awkward parts (e.g. Reeperbahn str.) and its really great hipster touches (the Altona and Schanze neighbourhoods).
And of course the left non-conformist St. Pauli.
You can find great food, some really cool shopping, the cutest cafes, and one of the most delicious gin & tonics I’ve ever tried in my life.
But what I loved the most was the harbour.
I love harbours, I, myself, come from a town with a beautiful harbour, and I always spend a couple of hours walking along the docks when I visit cities with ports. I believe it’s always this longing for travelling, getting to know new places, leaving those you love behind every single time you have to board a ship.
I find them dreamy and romantic, what can I say? I know it must be one of the hardest jobs in the world, being a sailor and working on a ship, but there is also this hidden allure of leaving little pieces of yourself everywhere you go, growing your hunger for the world, for the sea that can take you away and bring you back again.
Little guide for Hamburg:
Eat at Thämer’s.
Drink at the Bullerei.
Shop at the Altona district.
Take a break at the Saltkråkan.
A Sunday is a sunny day at the park reading a book.
It’s a stroll down the lake.
It’s flowers in full bloom.
It’s watching Belgium winning at the World Cup.
It’s a beautiful life sometimes. Most of the times.
Topshop’s Limited edition dresses and co-ords.
It has been the case that I’ve declared my great dislike for matchy-matchy outfits in the blog.
However, if I tried co-ords, it means that they are here to stay.
And I’ve just stumbled upon some great ones on Topshop. And not just co-ords, but dresses as well.
Take a look….
Su-su-su-summertime summertime layers.
You know how to sing that, right??
The lack of posts recently is the result of this weird habit I have:the more time I have on my hands the more lazy I get.
If I don’t set clear goals, like 3 OOTD per week or something like that, things will get difficult during summer :-p
