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 shortssequin 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.

SHOP MY CLOSET!


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!

3x WEEKEND WEAR I WANT TO STEAL

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!

LIBRARY DAYS

Tis the season to be layering! My dark grey knit, a camel touch (happy you loved it too yesterday!), black leather accessories, some cashmere and my half bun are everything I seem to need lately to compile a well-balanced outfit. Besides wanting to stick to my favourites there's another reason for recycling this outfit idea (same same but different?). My days are spent at the library nowadays since exams are coming closer, unexpected paper deadlines are emerging and well, I need to get some credibility being a literature student! Obviously I want to be comfy but study in style at the same time. At home I usually don't wash my hair for days weeks and wear ugly fleece jogging suits all day, but when studying at the library I need to compete with those always impeccable looking law girls. #studentproblems, you know. Luckily my current style happens to be extremely convenient in the morning! As I said: my dark grey knit, a camel touch, black leather accessories, some cashmere and my half bun are everything I seem to need lately. Happy Thursday!

CASHMERE CLOUD: AMERICAN VINTAGE SCARF




AMERICAN VINTAGE c/o cashmere men's scarf

Cashmere, a search term on my blog that will give you over three pages of results. It's sort of clear in what material I prefer wrapping myself, right? I wish I could sleep, work out, clean, swim and go to class wearing nothing but cashmere, but that would unfortunately mean the end of my bank account. Luckily there's one piece that I can carry almost everywhere to satisfy my cashmere cravings: a scarf. Somehow the grass is always greener on the other side, because cashmere men's scarves are bigger, have a boxier fit and a cleaner cut. I have spend many nights dreaming about the Acne Canada scarf but I never really got my hands on it (even though I tried it on a couple of times). This American Vintage beauty is a damn fine alternative though! While the prices for the Acne scarf range between 130 and 350 euros, this cashmere cloud comes for a slightly cheaper 110 euros, while the quality is most definitely the same. What I really like about this one is the colour; something "off-camel" which is a beautiful soft shade that suits my wardrobe perfectly. Love at first sight, let me tell you! If you're loving the outfit, stay tuned for more pictures tomorrow morning x
