I used to be a die hard flip flop wearer during summer. While getting older I realized that it wasn't really appropriate for every occasion. Not for school, not for work, even in the city it felt a little too 'beachy'. You'll understand that I was looking forward to one of the occasions were flip flops are absolutely appropriate: holiday! They were glued to my feet in Lanzarote. Maybe a little too much. It wasn't a very smart decision to wear them here. We were on our way to a beach that was only attainable by a rough path. And that's how I come to the moral of the story: Just because you're able to wear something you really like, doesn't mean it's a smart decision. ;)

Summer evenings are to be cherished. Especially if you are on a beach with palm trees and a starry sky. Those are the things you'll remember when you're old, the things that give you a dreamy glance in your eyes and make you say: "Those were the days."
The boyfriend and I have just returned from our holiday to the lovely island Lanzarote and I can't wait to show you the pictures! Expect an overload of sun, seaside and dry landscapes soon! I'll try to focus on the fashion aspect though. Oh, and the Nike's still have to be shown, I didn't forget! (as if I could)
Although the pictures may say the opposite, I'm getting really excited over here! And I've got so my reasons: just one more resit to go, in less than four days I'll be about 4000 kilometres further with my feet in the Atlantic ocean and my Nike ID's will arrive today! After Friday, I can finally enjoy the last weeks of summer without any obligations. No resits, no need for studying, no summer job, hoozay!
About the outfit, it's my first try on an all white look! Well technically not 'all' white, but you got the message. I like the result, but to be honest, it didn't really feel like me. An all white look creates such a clean, perfect image. Personally I like things to be a bit more casual and nonchalant. So I guess it'll be an all black look next time? Anyway, I'm too excited because of the reasons above to be bothered.

Edit: Today turned out even better than it was! I finally found the perfect black booties that I was looking for so long, the sweet cassière gave me a compliment about my red lipstick, I discovered an awesome cheap design store in my neighborhood and my Nike's have arrived! There was a big smile on my face during the whole way home haha! :D Oh snap, it's even still there!
Do you know that feeling that you're suddenly very into something? A movie for instance? Well, I have it with The Addams Family lately. I rewatched the movies and fell completely in love again with their morbid sense of humor. Especially mother Morticia got my attention. Despite the fact that her make up look isn't very uhm... flattering, Anjelica Huston made a marvellous character out of 'Tish' Addams. And then not the mention the chemistry between Gomez and Morticia! Ah, if only someone could treat me the way Gomez treats his Morticia! (Oh shut up Siel, you've got an awesome boyfriend al ready.)
I wondered if I could remake those crazy cheekbones of her. One thing led to another and POOF... suddenly I was making pictures trying to look like her!
Do you think I succeeded?
Anyway, it gives a good dose of inspiration for my favourite holiday: Halloween! Can't wait till the 31st of October!
For those interested, this is the order of the movies:
The Addams Family (1991)
Addams Family Values (1993) Sequel of previous movie
Addams Family Reunion (1998) Stands apart from previous movies (and less good in my opinion)
I didn't watch the original series again, but they're certainly on my series-to-watch-list!
PS. Sorry for the overload of pictures and GIF's, I just couldn't decide which ones I loved more! :)
Earlier I spoke about how our dear old JBC is an underrated brand in Belgian fashion. While giving a look on their a/w'14 collection I have to agree again. Come on, sporty chic, winter pastels and a dose of glam, that's spot on!
Also I'm getting sort of an addiction of winter coats, there are so many pretty ones lately! The pink one above for instance! Luckily I can use a new coat, so I get all the fun of being on a coat quest hehe. ^^
Same dress, different outfit. This dress looks completely different without a belt. Like a playful babydoll. It changes me in a free spirit that only wants to spin around and around!
Oh summer, please never end.
I couldn't resist it. I had to find an excuse to show you my freshly cut hair coupe. It's not a big difference, just a bit shorter and it's a little bit layered again, but I like it very much! It feels like such a fabulous WAG's hair cut, always perfectly healthy and bouncy. Until I wash it probably...
Anyway, enough about the hair. Whatcha think of my new blouse? I couldn't resist it in the sales last month. Yet another white blouse. But in my excuse, the pattern is perfectly trendy and we do have to go with our time, don't we?
Yes, I admit it, I'm hopelessly in love with this dress. I always loved off shoulder tops and wide, swirly skirts, and this dress has both! It makes me feel all girly and playful. My mum calls it my princess dress, and my sister is even worse by calling me a barbie doll who belongs in a window display. But I don't really mind as long as I (and the boyfriend) like it! ^^

PS. these picture reminded me a little too much of a certain Christian tradition we have here. So I had a little fun playing around and made a matching card. Lol.
