Happy Monday, guys! Dealing with Mondays is usually desperately being avoided by yours truly, but I’m welcoming this one in particular with open arms! Exciting things are coming up this week, work wise, travel wise AND blog wise…

I’ll be happy to tell you more about the latter two in a few days, but today will be all about me figuring out the adult life as a graduate. Next to exploring a super interesting book on personal branding, there are also a few very interesting meetings on my schedule today. I wish I could tell you more but everything is still very unclear, even to me! Keep a sharp eye on my blog and social media, that might help 🙂

In the mean time, I can show you a new outfit though! I have told you about my staycation plans before, and I’m happy to report that they are going pretty darn good. Most of my friends are in town too, so we’re having plenty of coffee dates, shopping sprees and parties together! We’re hoping to do some day trips within Belgium or the Netherlands as well, so if you have some tips or ideas on what to visit, just shoot! I hope for some nice weather so I can bring this city version of a very Saint-Tropez-esque outfit along. Looking forward to your thoughts!

    Love the outfit! I’ve seen your Rib&Hull carryall tote in a few of your photos and I was wondering if you would mind commenting on how it’s holding up? Is the leather finish sturdy? I’m considering one myself, since the zip-top and large inside pocket are two features that I really want on a take-everywhere tote. Thank you!

    • Hi Sarah! I’ve only just seen your comment just now. We’ll I’ve had the bag for over two years now although it’s been through some ROUGH times (it’s my university bag), it’s still holding up perfectly. The leather is quite sturdy and buttery at the same time, really nice. It has some scratches because of intense wear but I think that it looks even better like this. I can definitely recommend it!
