OOTD: You can never have too many striped tops

I've always loved stripes and I don't think I will ever grow tired of them. They're just so timeless! That's why I just couldn't resist buying this striped top nor wearing it constantly. :D

I don't know about you, but for me time flies so fast! We're half past December, even though to me it feels as if we're only halfway October. But our Christmas tree and the cold weather of the past weeks made me all of a sudden realise 2017 is almost there. Let's have a look to what I've been up to those last months, as seen through my Instagram pictures.

I've been taking outfit pictures again, yes! And you might also notice I've had a hair cut! Chopped off at least 10cm, because it was so broken. It was really exciting to lose that many cm! :D

Festive jewelry

Even though it's still a while until Christmas and New Years Eve, I'm already planning my outfit. I'm thinking about wearing a plain black or dark blue dress, and then pimp it up with some statement jewelry. I haven't figured out what I'll be wearing exactly, partly because I've laid eyes on some pretty nice jewelry. Though decisions!

Keeping warm in Winter

Winter is almost there, but Winter weather has certainly arrived already! I always get cold when it's less than 15 degrees Celsius, so now that it started freezing a bit, I'm super cold! I have started leaving the house with a super warm coat, a super super warm scarf, mittens and a beanie. I prefer warmer weather, if you hadn't figured out yet. ;) I've got some cosy and warm solutions for everyone who's been cold lately, though! :D

NOTD: Marble nails

On Friday I had the apartment for myself, so I decided to spend the evening watching three different series and painting my nails. This really is my way of having me-time! :D I had come across marble nails a few times on Pinterest and I really wanted to try it! It looked harder than it actually was and the results are really cool!

Last weekend I went to London for a day with some friends. Besides the cold weather and the early wake-up, we had a lot of fun! One day is not that much time to see such an amazing city, but here are my tips for you.Following this route, you can get to see the most iconic things, next to a different part of London.

OOTD: Into the Woods

As an annual tradition we went to the woods this year too. It's always fun to walk around, enjoy the calmth (even though there were SO many people this time, like woaw!) and search for chestnuts. The weather was so nice for the time of the year, which only made our trip better!

OOTD: Falling for Autumn

What I love to do most in Autumn is walking around in a park or in the woods. It's so calming for the mind and if you're lucky you can collect chestnuts. Lucky me that the boyf loves those walks just as much as I! And lucky me that he doesn't like chestnuts as much as I do; that's more for me! ;)

Spiced up nails

I usually wear plain nail polish, but sometimes I want to spice things up. My latest nail art started with a plain blue base, which I wore for two days. Then I got bored of it. :D

Daily #FWIS - week 2

Week 2 of my daily FWIS'. Last week was pretty busy, since we had to enjoy the good weather! This Summer the weather has been SO good in Belgium! Really loving it! :D Let's have a look at my clothes in such good weather!

Daily #FWIS - Week 1

So I've jumped on the Instagram Stories bandwagon! I'm posting my #FWIS outfit on a daily basis. There's a lot of blue involved. Sunnies too, since this week we had really wonderful weather for September! Every week I'll summarise my outfits posted on Stories on the blog. Get ready for the first summary! :D
Clothes & Dreams: Daily FWIS - Week 1
On Monday I was wearing a Vila polka dot shirt, which I absolutely LOVE wearing, a Levi's jeans and my Bocage boots. The weather was quite good that day, so those boots were waaay too hot to wear, woops!
On Tuesday I wore my top with leather upper part from Stradivarius. I've got this top for years, but still love wearing it! Since I go to work by bike, I'm always prepared for rain. I didn't need my Esprit raincoat that much after all, luckily!

NOTD: A Stripe of Orange

Every now and then I try not to use a blue nail polish when polishing my nails. That's how I ended up with a nail art featuring a nude base and a stripe of orange. Quite simple, yet a bit more special than just bare nails. Just how I like my nails lately!

16 in 2016, number three

As you might have already noticed on my Instagram, I've bought new shoes and I absolutely love them. I wore them to a family party last weekend, paired with a dress I rediscovered at the back of my closet. We had so much fun talking with my cousins that we forgot to take a picture of my look. Since I loved my "new" dress so much too, I wore it again the next day. Again, we forgot to take pictures of it. (good blogger over here, yeah...) In the end I got my pictures taken at home, by a friend, right before spending the hot Summer afternoon at a lake. So here you go! :D

Life Lately

Life's been quite hectic lately: next to starting a job, I started running again and it became Summer, meaning weekends are jammed with seeing friends and enjoying the sun (if there is any, of course). It's a constant juggling of everything, arriving late to some things or staying late at other things. But hey, with a splash of sunshine, that's exactly how I like it!

16 in 2016: number two!

As a kid I used to say that my favourite colour was green. However, I never wore anything green, nor would I buy a green bag or notebook. Clothes, bags, notebooks... I bought them all in blue. Nowadays I would say my favourite colour is blue. When I saw this blue polka dot top from Vila, I did not hold back for a second and tried it on. As you can see, I bought it! :D

Travels: Bologna Baby!

One of the perks of having international friends is you always have a place to stay when you decide to go traveling two days later. That's how I ended up in Bologna some weeks ago. The weather was great (vs. the rain in Belgium, everything is good!), I stayed with a friend I hadn't seen in six years, we visited another friend of ours and the food was delicious. Yep, I had a great time! :D

Trend: Off-the-shoulder

You might have already seen them passing on Instagram: bloggers wearing off-the-shoulder tops. And if you didn't, you will now, because you won't be able to un-notice it! (;
Since I'm a fan of the trend, I'll show you my favourite pieces and some bloggers wearing such tops.

OOTD: Sun's out!

Even though Summer is approaching, you wouldn't say so here in Belgium. It's been raining and storming quite a lot the last weeks, so you have to take advantage of it when the weather is really good! :D On Sunday the boyf and I made a stroll through Ghent. It took us to a place next to a bridge, where you can sit on benches, enjoying the good weather and the water. 
I wore a new tee, the second piece of my 16 pieces in 2016 challenge. :D

Travels: Amsterdam

Last month the boyf and I spent an awesome weekend in Amsterdam. We walked all around parts of the city we hadn't been yet, visited shops we had found online and saw a Cirque du Soleil show. Needless to say we had a wonderful time! Even though we had visited Amsterdam before (separately though), we saw so many new and fun things!

DIY: Travel boxes

I usually return from a holiday with a whole lot more in my suitcase than I started with: a piece of clothing, some food and... maps of the city/country, musuem entrance tickets, candy wraps or restaurant tickets. The clothes you can wear and the food you can eat, but the tickets and wraps just lie around doing nothing. I was searching for a way to keep them together in a cute way, without them lying in the way. Mixing the map of the city/country and a video tape box and you can easily store all of your little memories.

In this blog post you could read about my challenge to only buy 16 pieces of clothing in 2016. Let me introduce you to the first piece I bought in 2016. There's a whole story behind it, featuring a train strike, a cardigan and a long time not seen friend.

Life lately

My latest blog post was on 17th of January. That's four months ago... Since then a lot has changed: I  am now living together with the boyf in Ghent. i.e. a lot had to be done and prepared to move here. And even when we had moved, there was so much to do in the appt too. 

Since last weekend we are more or less completely installed (the second door of the boyf's wardrobe is finally attached to the wardrobe, we now have a coffee machine, ...) so we FINALLY have time to do something else than appartement related stuff. HELLO BLOGGING! :D

Damn how I would love to announce this to his family... Since they love me so much. ;) Pretty funny they think I went somewhere in the first place! HA!:

There are two more posts on their way and I hope more will follow soon. Stay tuned! (;

Glad I'm back to blogging!

It took me a while but here is another Instadiary. Here are some of my favourite pictures from my Instagram account over the last weeks.
 Clothes & Dreams: Instadiary
Some fashion shops give you interior inspiration. & Other Stories is one of them, according to me. I just love how their interior is clean, has plants in it and dares to use objects differently to show their products. This aquarium is the perfect example. I am thinking about trying this out in my own apartment when we'll have one. Weekends call for pampering. I just love this OPI red nail polish. It's classy red that doesn't scream for attention. Beside that, I put on a face mask. I love using Lush' Oatifix because it always helps my face through the Winter.
Il dolce far niente is almost a synonym to my Sundays!
These four earrings have been my favourite pairs the last few weeks. They're unusual, but so classy.

16 pieces in 2016

Like probably every other girl I have way too many clothes I don't wear, but when I'm standing in front of my wardrobe I never have anything to wear. I guess it's time to clean out my wardrobe and buy only clothes I know I'll wear a lot. That's why I've decided to do a wardrobe detox and to buy only sixteen (!!) pieces in 2016. Yikes!
