50. Winter essentials

fashion, lifestyle

Follow my blog on Bloglovin’

The temperature is dropping, mornings and nights are getting colder, hot air leaves our body as a little cloud while breathing out. This can only mean one thing: winter is coming.

To survive the upcoming cold you can choose to layer your outfits or go for a very warm coat to keep you comfortable outside.

I think the layering option is great for long walks outside in the cold, but if you find yourself going in- and outside all the time – when you’re shopping or when you’re just going to the office in the morning and back home at night – you don’t want to be peeling of your layers all the time.

What I propose: A coat reaching halfway your calves. It’s amazing how much warmth is captured underneath and even when wearing a dress or skirt you don’t have to worry about being too cold. Plus, it’s super trendy!

What’s also trending lately, and keeps your head and ears nice and warm, is the bakerboy hat – or fishermans cap. They come in all styles and colors but I went for a khaki one. Mainly because there wasn’t a black one available ;).

I know one girl though, who was far ahead of this trend wearing hers for years already. Meet Anouk Lannoo. Cool girl, bad girl, blogger girl – you name it, she’s it!

Anyway, time for some photos, nah?

Last weekend I was on a citytrip to Brighton, England. A cool little town by the shore, a picture perfect place with lots of history. Below you can find some first impressions, as well as me wearing my winter essentials. Although it wasn’t that cold, my lack of sleep due to the early flight surely made that I was cold enough to need them.

46. Seasonal transitions

fashion

This weekend it felt like all summer vibes came to a definite end. Indian summer has left the country, making room for some strong winds and rain showers.

I think the indian summer should be a season on it’s own though. A couple of months for us to enjoy soft temperatures, without it being too warm, while the trees shed their leaves. If you give me that, I swear I’ll be ready for winter afterwards. Pinky promise!

39. Festival vibes at WCD17

Beauty, fashion

Who doesn’t love the vacay feel AND being able to sleep in your own bed? I do! As I am posting this, We Can Dance festival took place little over a week ago, but while I’m writing this post, all the magic happened just a few days ago.

38. Cloud nine

fashion

As I’m writing this, I am still experiencing a warm and fuzzy post We Can Dance feeling. We visited the festival yesterday and it was great. The weather was awesome, the people were awesome, the food was awe… you get the picture I guess ;). It really felt like I was on vacation, but got to sleep in my own bed. Double win!

More on WCD17 in my next post though. Today I’ll share with you two musthave items for the next season.

37. What’s new Pussycat

fashion

This blogpost was one that just had to be posted on a Monday, featuring one of my most recent Sale buys. What’s new pussycat shows you my love for animal printed shirts that give you an easy breezy, effortless chic office look.

In this outfit I feel I can wake up a little more, while already on my way to work. And what better day to hold on to that Sunday morning feeling than on a Monday morning? Though it might not be the right clothing fabric to wear on a hot summer day outside of the office, the satin flows around your body in a cooler – airconditioned – environment.

36. Ola Barcelona!

fashion, Travel

Hi there!

It has been exactly a week since I returned from Barcelona and I thought it would be a good idea to share some of my Barcelona impressions with you, along with the looks I wore.

I must say though, on a regular day out with my fellow bloggers I probably take more pictures than I did in four days now. But this was a trip with le boyfriend and I just really wanted to be there with him, so I also took it slow on Instagram for a couple of days. You know, l’amour toujours and everything ;).

35. Love at first sight

fashion

Hola! Què tal? This afternoon we took a minute during our Barcelona trip to let our feet rest, before hitting the streets again tonight, when we go looking for the perfect paella. The perfect moment for me to write a blogpost!

Today I’ll be showing you one of my favorite pieces of the moment. A striped AND leopard printed shirtdress. Yes, it’s a lot. But I like it!

34. Guess what..

fashion

As you might have read in my previous blogpost I have been fighting some nasty bugs the last couple of days. Stuffy and runny nose, sore throat, ear pain, head ache, tooth ache… You name it, I felt it.

After little over a week I’m also just so very done with being sick, too bad you can’t speed up the healing process.

The main reason I want this to be over really quick is that I’m leaving for Barcelona in a couple of days! Citytripping to the land of tapas and sangria with the love of my life. I. CAN’T. WAIT!
