Thanks for visiting my blog (again)! I hope you’re all having a great time. I am for sure, ‘cause my man currently switched jobs and he’s having the time of his life, having new challenges and starting a new, exciting chapter in his life. I share his joy off course, that’s the great thing about love. His luck is mine, basically. So I have been very cheery these days.
I don’t know about you or your country, but in Belgium the weather is extremely hot for the last couple of weeks. 30 degrees almost on a daily base, without rain. Even the nights are warm. But I don’t mind, after a while you adjust to the climate. So today I’ll be sharing one of my summer outfits with you. It’s nothing spectacular, just a retro printed crop tee and a grey pencil skirt combined with my new boho sandals I got from Primark.
T-shirt – I really don’t know where I got it from, it’s been in my closet for years but I still love it! LOL
Skirt – H&M
Sandals – Primark
Bag – Longchamp
Earrings – Same story as the t-shirt
So after wearing this ensemble, I was thinking: how much stuff do I really have in my closet? I concluded the same thing as every woman concludes when checking her wardrobe: I have way too much clothes! Clothes that are wasting space I’d prefer using for new clothes (yup, the circle of life). Yesterday I got into this idea even more, so I started taking action. No more saying: I must do this, I must do that, no instead of saying I just did it. I cleaned up my wardrobe and currently filled 4 small garbage bags with clothing that’s been hanging there for years without any purpose. Now my wardrobe’s clean again and it does give me a good feeling. It was very satisfying! Sometimes a fresh start is all we need!
Do you have a clean wardrobe? Do you have a lot of clothes?
So Polyvore is gone. Bye bye making sets. I was a bit heartbroken about this fact tbh. But okay, let’s handpick the items then ourselves instead of making a collage. I guess collages are out of fashion, it’s vintage LOL 😀 So now Polyvore is SSense. SSense is an online store which sells designer clothing and shoes. The lay-out of the website is very simple. They have an amazing offer of brands, it’s a paradise for every fashionisa on this planet. So off course I had to check it out! 😀
Which items do I wear lately? I do have my favorites. Lately I’m very much into my All Stars and Vans, can’t live without those comfy shoes. I’m also a big fan of denim jackets, for me it’s the perfect item to wear during spring summer time. Furthermore I just need my casual Pliage bag or a leather bag and I’m good to go. Makeup is basically every day the same: a glitter nude smokey eye (sometimes I go for a taupe or grey color) with a cat eye liner and big lashes.
Blue Originals Classic Denim Trucker Jacket – $ 249 USD
Beige Old Skool Vans – $ 60 USD
Black Givenchy Tote Bag $ 1250 USD
Black Skinny Jeans Levi’s $ 90 USD
I think SSense does have a lot of great brands to offer, but for me it’s way over budget. Do you like the new Polyvore?
What do you like to wear lately? Do you have your own favorites? I’d love to hear it, share it with other readers in the comment form.

Hi lovely readers ❤
Today’s post will be about 1 dress: this $ 18 wine red Amazon skater dress.
It’s a simple dress – no details or prints. That gives us the option to combine it in many different ways: an evening look (for a diner with that crush you have), a professional work outfit and a casual lazy sunday outfit.
These 3 outfit suggestions were created by me. For more outfit ideas, don’t hesitate to follow me on my Polyvore account (currently 616 followers were before you!).
1. AN EVENING LOOK
You wanna impress your boy? This look is classy and sexy all at the same time. The romantic color palette of wine red and soft neutrals is a match made in heaven. All you need is a layer of fake fur during the cold winter season to keep you warm and you’ll amaze everyone with your presence.
2. A WORK LOOK
For a professional garderobe it is interesting to invest in a pair of black ankle boots, a practical big sized shoulderbag (in black, dark blue or cognac) and cardigans in all kind of colors. These items are suitable with jeans, skirts and dresses so perfect for everyday. Because I combined the dress mostly with black items, I decided to have the knitted cardigan in a warm yellow shade to break the dark and boring pattern.
3. AN OFF DAY LOOK
My kind of lazy day look. All Stars, hoodies and messy buns. You can personalize your look with accessories of all kind. On my off days I don’t like wearing heels or fancy things, I prefer easy to wear looks which are comfortable and cosy.
Do you like the different looks? What do you think about the dress?

In my latest look I combined a woolen cardigan with a pair of dark high waist jeans with studs. As for the shoes I’ve chosen black Vans to keep things casual and comfy, just the way I like. I was wearing my favorite bag of the moment, a wonderful practical shopper from Primark with different sections to organize. Right now it’s very much on trend to personalize your bag with key rings and straps. I bought a powder colored pompom key ring from H&M, which I absolutely love for all my bags. It adds a personal touch. I hope you like this outfit as much as I do! Get inspired.
