Outfit // Simplicity

Some things I wanted to share with you:

- Here's a quick outfit post of what I wore today. Yes, I finally had the chance to wear the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M boots.

- Forget what I said in my previous post: these boots aren't that comfortable as I thought they were and they do hurt. 

- I wanted to keep everything as simple as possible, so the boots would get the attention they deserve. Even though it's fun from time to time, you don't always have to pull out the craziest outfits to look good.

- Sorry for my blouse and all the wrinkles. I didn't realize how bad it was until I saw these pictures. I was wearing the blouse for about an hour when we went out to shoot. I have no idea what I did to ruin it like this.

- I'm not feeling too well, which means: no close-ups. 

- Need to get a new lens / camera. I don't like the quality of my pictures at all lately. 

That's all.

New // Maison Martin Margiela For H&M Booties

The search is over! I've finally found the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M ankle boots with the see through heel in black. Most of you will already be sick of seeing them, but I just absolutely love them.

I wasn't able to wait in line for the launch, because I had to work. When I went to the H&M-store in Hasselt in the weekend, they were already sold out. I felt kinda bad, because it was the first time that I really wanted an item from a H&M-collaboration. Anyway, when my mom told me that she wanted to go to Maastricht this morning, I was secretly hoping that someone would've returned the boots for some reason. We entered the store, only to find out that there were still tons of items left, including the booties! 

I tried them on, took them for a walk around the store, decided they were comfortable enough - really, they're so easy to walk in - and took them home with me. Happy!

If you're looking for the boots and happen to be near Maastricht, do stop by. They have tons of stuff left!

Shark Attack Loves... // The Bold And The Casual

Meadham Kirchoff S/S '13

I'm still struggling to find a balance between working and blogging. I can't find the time to shoot outfit pictures, since I have to prepare the lessons that I want to teach my students, have to correct tests and so on. Plus, the things I'm wearing to teach aren't that special. Anyway, because of all that, I only find myself browsing for inspirational pictures like the one above -- for now. I'm positive that, once I've found my way into the teaching world, I'll be back into my old routine. I hope y'all will still be here with me. 

Looking at the picture above, I kinda want to slap myself for not buying that emerald statement necklace at Zara a while ago. I loved it, was holding in my hands while doubting... And I decided to leave it there, because I thought I wouldn't wear it that much. Of course, it's sold out now. It popped up on tons of blogs in no time. But I'm still keeping my eyes open, searching for another pretty statement necklace. If you have any advice on where to find them, do let me know! The mix between bold and casual is absolutely perfect. 

I found this picture while browsing on Tumblr. You can follow me here if you want. Leave me a comment with your Tumblr-profile too. I love to discover new profiles. New profiles = new inspiration!

Event // UGG Accessories Pop Up Store

Remember when I was invited to the opening of the UGG-store in Maasmechelen Village? And remember when I was allowed to choose a pair of UGGs and I went for the 'Classic Short Sangria'-boots? I still know how hesitant I was about these shoes, boots, whatever you want to call them... I never would've bought a pair myself, but I must admit that, when I tried them on for the first time, I was completely hooked. 

I now wear them around the house on a daily basis and when I have to run some errands. They're warm, cosy and comfortable. However, I don't wear them during summer as I see a lot of people do. It just doesn't seem healthy to your feet.

Anyway, I was happy to discover the new UGG Accessories Pop Up store at La Bottega in Hasselt. Next to the classic boots, you can also find hats, gloves, earmuffs, wallets, phone cases, etc. I even got the chance to pick a pair of warm gloves, which will be perfect for the cold winters we experience here in Belgium.

And I was just dying over the electric blue pair of UGGs. They're perfect to spice up even the simplest of outfits!

P.S.: I'm sorry for the absence on the blog. I landed myself a teaching job for the coming two weeks (and it could be for more weeks to come), so I'm still trying to find the balance between my working and blogging life. 


Outfit // Repeat Offender

Yes... I'm wearing the same T-shirt and trousers as in my previous post. I never understood bloggers who have a 'wear it once and never wear it again'-policy. Like, I paid 195 euros for this T-shirt. So hell yes, I'm going to wear it 'till there's nothing left of it. And a pair of Converse, a long coat and a hat really can change an outfit, don't ya think? 

The coat was a birthday gift from my dad. Every time winter is coming, he starts complaining about the fact that I don't own a proper winter coat -- which is true, but I just don't like winter clothes. They make me feel trapped. Anyway, after hearing it ONCE AGAIN, I told him: "Then you buy me one." We made a stop at Zara and after scanning the store, I spotted this coat. I knew this was da one. The leather details add that rock 'n roll touch that I love. I must admit that winter clothes aren't so bad after all, 'cause this coat's actually kinda cosy and warm. 

Anyway, my mom and I shot these pictures in literally 3 minutes and I loved them all. I had a hard time selecting my favorite pictures and not creating a picture overload - thinking: if Chiara is allowed to post a dozen of pictures, then so am I - but I think I did a nice job after all.

New // House Of Harlow 1960 Sunburst Necklace

A while ago, I was contacted by the sweet people at Winston & Celeste, asking for a collaboration with Shark Attack. I'm always quite hesitant about things like that and I only accept if the brand represents items I would wear myself. So, I clicked around their website and I was immediately hooked.

Winston & Celeste focuses on high-end American jewelry brands which are hard to find in Europe. They even add photos to show you which celebrity wears the same bracelet, necklace... you're about to purchase. Lets be honest: it's always exciting to see a Hollywood starlet wearing an item you own too, right?

Anyway, when I saw that they sell House Of Harlow 1960, I couldn't be more exited. I've been a fan of Nicole Richie ever since she starred in The Simple Life. Even though those colored extensions were the shit back then, I must say that I like her gypsy/bohemian style more. And since I'm a huge fan of big golden jewelry, her designs have found a way into my heart in no time. So I decided to click the well known Sunburst Necklace home. I received my package after 3 days (one holiday included), which was a big plus, since I'm not the most patient person to be around. I think it's safe to say that I have a new favorite piece of jewelry!

If you see something you like on the Winston & Celeste-website, don't forget to enter 'SHARK10', which will give you a 10% discount! They ship all over Europe and if you live in Belgium, shipping won't cost you a penny. 

Happy shopping and let me know what you got!
