30 Inspiring Outfit Ideas To Try This November

Hello there,

Getting dressed in November.  The key here is: layers.  And oversized sweaters :). That’s what I love about fall.  You can walk outside with just a sweater, or with a cute shirt and a long coat.  In winter, it’s more complicated to get out without a full on onion look.  So, let’s enjoy it while we can 😉

31 Inspiring Outfit Ideas To Try This October

Hello there,

How are you adjusting to fall? 🙂 Are you excited?  I know I am.  At least I am now, I’ll probably be less excited when it’s all grey and rainy and dull.  But right now, I’m over the moon.  I can’t stop thinking about hot chocolate (don’t let me fool you, I never stop thinking and never stop getting excited about hot chocolate), pecan pie, and warm sweaters…. I’m sure I’m not the only one – yeah, you know who you are 😀

Anyway, here you’ll find 31 looks you can try out this October and these looks are featured by some of my favorite fashionistas and favourite fashion bloggers: Olivia Palermo, Rachel Bilson, Paola Alberdi, Alexandra Pereira, Michelle Madsen and Xenia Van Der Woodsen.

One word for October: layers.  In Belgium, you can have absolutely any weather imaginable: warm and cold; dry and wet; summery and wintery.  Hence, you gotta leave your house *prepared*.  The best solution, as far as I’m concerned, is thus layering my dears!

Week 1: October 1 – 8

The New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017-2018 Report

Hello there,

So, I know that NYFW ended more than 2 weeks ago, but hey, better late than never right?

I must admit I prefer the September fashion weeks. It’s February, I see the new spring/summer collections in stores. I can’t be bothered to think of next fall/winter. I’m so done with the grey, the rain, and the cold. I want some sun in my life for crying out loud! Still, if anything can make me look forward to being cold, it’s definitely fashion 😉

In this post, you can find my report on NYFW (ergo the very original title…): who are the big names? What are the big trends? Fun anecdotes and/or noteworthy moments? And what were my favorite fashionistas up to? Let’s have a look!

Russian Baroque: AW16-17 Trend

Hello girls,

How are you doing?

Since it’s getting pretty cold right now, I thought it was time to see where we can shop some pieces that could keep us warm.  What do we want?  Faux fur.  Velvet.  Striking jackets or capes.  Statement jewels.  That’s the Russian Baroque trend, ladies!

Let’s see what we can find 🙂

Essentiel-Antwerp: a faux fur coat (available in different prints), a faux fur scarf, a bead encrusted necklace, a brooch, and a faux fur backpack.

How To Wear An Understated Winter Look

Hello there,

Have you recovered from too much eating (leftovers included), drinking, and not enough sleep?  🙂  I hope your first week back to work/back to school was not too hellish!

After over the top outfits and fancy accessories from NYE, I thought it would be a nice idea to go for a more understated look.  I’m a girly girl, and If you read some of my previous posts you know that I ❤ ❤ ❤ sequins and glitter.  But right now, after all these shiny looks, all I long for is a minimalist, simple, and comfy look in neutral tones.  And what’s more comfy than a cosy knitted sweater?  🙂
