Dotted

Hey, it’s me again! I just crawled out of my study cave (I had to write the first piece of my bachelor thesis this week, ugh) and I found these pictures I made before. This wonderful dotted button-up dress is currently my favourite thing to wear. It’s super comfortable and it has pockets, which is always a big plus for me. I decided to pair it with my beloved platform sandals to add some height.

I haven’t been posting a lot of outfit pictures lately, but that’s because I haven’t had a lot of time to experiment with cool outfits because of all the school work, and I haven’t bought a lot of new clothes either – although hopefully, that last thing is going to change soon, because & Other Stories has opened a new store in Ghent and now that I handed in my assignment I finally have time to check it out :)

See you soon!

Hi! Today is the last day of the year, so I thought I’d show you one more outfit that I’ve been loving lately. I bought this dress in the beginning of the autumn, and I thought it was just perfect. Besides that fact that it’s striped (how can I resist that?), the fabric is very thick, and IT HAS LONG SLEEVES! I think that’s great, because when you’re feeling cold, the length of your sleeves actually makes a big difference. I paired it with my beloved white platform sandals, which I think gives this look a special vibe. I don’t know if it’s because of the two-toned colour scheme, the geometric pattern or the short dress with the long sleeves, but something makes me feel like this look is kind of sixties (but I may be wrong!).

Anyway, so I’m spending New Year’s Eve with some of my friends this year, and I think this may actually be the first time I’m not spending it with my family. I always think there’s something magical about the beginning of a new year, like everything is the same but still it’s not. Do you have that as well?

Have a great New Year's Eve, and I'll see you in 2015!

Cosy Sunday

Finally time for a new outfit post! My reading list for Swedish literature has kept my quite occupied for the last couple of weeks, and this is the perfect outfit for chilling out at home and reading lots of Strindberg and Ibsen while sipping some tea. I love how fresh the colours look, and how the socks give a pop of colour even when I have my shoes on, because the jeans are on the shorter side. And besides that, it’s just really warm and comfy. Have a nice Sunday everyone!

PS: If you like the socks, you can still enter my Minga Berlin giveaway to win a set of these, here :)

Hey everyone, I’m back with another look! I thought I’d mix things up a little and try a different way of editing my pictures. In a way, I think this is more like how you perceive someone’s outfit in real life: you see the whole picture but at the same time you notice all these nice little details. I wore this outfit to school last week, and it kind of brightened up my day because I like it so much. And there’s actually a story behind these pants. So you might know that Cheap Monday recently celebrated its 10th birthday. To celebrate that, they handed out one thousand free pairs of jeans in ten cities all over the world, and Antwerp was one of them! So I expected it would be a total chaos, but I still decided to try my luck, and I succeeded! They’re not exactly the right length, so I might make them a little bit shorter, but for now I’m just wearing them with the legs rolled up. It was not easy to combine this colour (everything I tried looked just too rock chick or something), but I ended up pairing it with a light grey sweater and a dark grey backpack. But what really makes the difference is the white shirt that I’m wearing underneath. It’s made out of this fabric that’s so stiff that it almost doesn’t feel like cotton anymore (but it is!) and I like how it’s longer in the back. Also, I’ve been loving this half-up top knot hairstyle lately. So, how are you guys doing?

A new week, a new outfit! I got this cardigan when I was in Göteborg last month, and I’ve been wearing it a lot since the beginning of the school year. As you may know, I started studying Swedish in Ghent this year, but since I don’t have a room there yet, I’ve been spending a lot of time on the train lately. So I love to wear this to school because not only does it keep me super warm, but it’s also just the most cosy thing to wear and it always makes me feel a little more at home. Besides that, I really like the shape of the pockets. For some reason, I think that comfort is one of the most important things when commuting, so I like to pair this cardigan with my white Converse, for the ultimate walking comfort, and my Fjällräven backpack, to carry all of my books (and food!).

I wish you all a happy last week of October!

I’ve never had a long coat like this, but when I was in Gothenburg, surrounded by all these people in their wonderful neutral colored clothes and super long coats and cardigans, I just felt like the time was right and I got one. Isn’t the way that a city can influence you like that just the greatest thing? Anyway, I just paired it with some very simple basics and I took this Filippa K tote bag, which is currently my favourite, to carry around all of my things. Walking around in the city in those clothes actually made me feel like I kind of belonged there. Do you love this coat as much as I do?

Part two of the things I wore this summer but never got a chance to post on my blog! I wore this outfit about two months ago (here) and I think this is probably the most girly outfit I’ve ever posted on my blog. I bought this skirt at a bloggers closet sale last year but I had never actually worn it before – because even though this may seem like a garment that goes well with anything, I never found the right way to combine it. But when I was going to go out with my brother and his friend Ken, who’s a fashion student, Ken told me I had to wear it, and I actually quite liked it. I paired it with a top that’s made of some kind of thick fabric, which makes it look quite elegant, a delicate gold necklace, and my favourite socks-and-sandals combo. Do you like this as much as I do? :)

It may be October but since I didn’t get the chance to make a lot of outfit pictures during the summer, I thought I’d show you two of my favourite late summer outfits. I’m wearing my relatively new but already beloved T-shirt dress that I bought in Göteborg. I don’t think I’ve ever had a dress that’s so comfortable! Whenever I’m wearing it, it kind of feels like I’m wearing pyjamas, and I have to say that is not something I dislike. It’s made of a soft, mixed grey fabric (viscose and polyester, according to the label) and you might not be able to tell from the pictures but IT HAS POCKETS! I’m not completely sure why I think dresses with pockets are so exciting, but in a way they make me feel strong and independent, which is not usually a feeling you get when you’re wearing a dress. I paired it with a nice backpack and my beloved Birkenstocks to make the whole thing even more comfortable, and some very simple and delicate silver jewelry to give it a chic and feminine touch. What do you think? :)
