Bless this lovely November weather! I'm jumping around in leather jackets and thick scarves and am even wearing the first tights of the season! (Have been wearing these Wolford ones for a week now and NOT A SINGLE SCRATCH to be seen, I can seriously recommend these ones!) I think it might even be time to get out the good old beanie collection, what do you think? Speaking of old favourites, this A-line skirt I got last year finally got back out of the closet, since I've had quite some trouble integrating it in my recently more toned down tomboy-wardrobe. I think that I've finally found a way! Together with a pair of Nikes, a cool sweatshirt and of course this beloved leather jacket it looks really new and refreshing to me. You like?
Sorry for my scattered thoughts, but this is actually a reflection of my current mind right now. It's super busy and I'm having trouble overviewing all my tasks and activities lately, plus I'm too lazy to think of logical sentences and signal words. So on the the next scattered thought: WINTER! I'm really excited for December coming up so soon and I really really hope to get a tiny bit of snow here in Antwerp. You can tell I'm getting into the Xmaz mood: I set up my pretty minimalistic Christmas tree, wore my first ugly Christmas sweater and made a few delicious presents for friends and relatives with Ugg last week. Oh, and if you yourself are still looking for a cool, original and Belgian-made present for your loved-ones: do check out OMSK for more pretty sweatshirts, dresses and t-shirts (luving the kids collection as well)! Now off to counting down to some hopefully Siberian temperatures next week on my ski trip!
PS: Loving my personalized headphones as well??
PS2: I'm posing in front of the brand new Kaffeenini in Antwerp, which you should check out!
PS2: Some more coherent thoughts next post, I really really promise! Ciao xx

American Vintage saying they'd love to work with me, I jumped from behind my desk and did a maxi happy dance — more specifically this one, My Salsa, which is my number one song when celebrating happy moments, MUST SEE! You can imagine I started scrolling through the webshop like cuh-razy. Cashmere jumpers, wool dresses and fine silk pantalons were mesmerizing me before I suddenly laid eyes on this jacket. This jacket. This buttery soft and delicious looking jacket. La Pielaun x This Jacket turned out to be a match made in heaven, since I've been wearing this beauty on a daily basis for weeks now. What I love about it, besides its absolutely perfect buttery soft and delicious looking leather, is the boxy shape, slightly longer fit and the gorgeous bold revers with silver details. You can find my new love right here, and I know it doesn't come cheap, but did I tell you about the baby blue version? Uh oh....
With special thanks to American Vintage! Photos by Lisa M, editing by me.

RAWR! MORE FUR! MORE PARKA! I like to surround myself with soft and furry textures, and this parka truly is a Leo's dream. Sheep lining, fur hood and wind-proof outer material is what makes me happy about a decent winter coat. This baby has been stored in my closet for a few months and now it's finally time for a proper introduction on the blog! It was a kind birthday gift from VILA, a brand I have a special connection with for over a year. We work together very closely and I'm really proud to promote their new collections and wear their pieces here on the blog. I know that sometimes the webshop doesn't entirely do justice to the clothes, but I do advise you to keep your eyes peeled for some of their latest pieces coming up. These beaded shorts, sequin longsleeve or fringed knit are for example definitely worth a peek. Oh, and you might want to check out this leopard sleeve sweatshirt as well. Hey, I'm a Leo after all! Rawr.

Hey guys! After adding a few winter basics to my closet this season, my wardrobe seems to get bulkier and bulkier by the second. Party dresses, high heels, cute skirts and oversized knits that I don't wear anymore take way too much space in my closet, so YES it's time for another closet sale again! The last few months my style has really gotten on point (casual tomboy French something? Discover my 2014 style evolution right here!) so I'm happy to part with the pieces that don't fit my style a 100% anymore but that will definitely make someone else happy. SO, over to the closet sale part! This time I'm not organizing my own Bloggers Closet Sale but will join a huge vintage and second hand sale in Antwerp. My girlfriends and I look forward to see you all next Sunday from 10 til 18h at the Renault garage!
Back to my favourite subject of all fasjun-times: comfy weekend attire! By now you know I'm not that super glamourous girl that elegantly spins around on 10cm heels in a Hervé Léger bodycon dress while carrying groceries, school books and a pet or two. Nope, I'm the one that shuffles around on worn out chucks wearing destroyed denim, continuously drops/loses/leaves all of my stuff and gets a weird foot cramp somewhere in between. The fact that I usually transport myself by bike or public transport of course explains my love for easy clothing. These three girls demonstrate that it's perfectly possible to look fabulous and feel comfortable at the same time! To be honest I wouldn't mind stealing Maja's Nikes, Sofie's parka and Alex's hooded sweater for a cozy Saturday afternoon. Who's with me? Check out more weekend inspiration on my Pinterest board right here! Have a great day!
