A flip flop story

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 eve

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."

Can't wait!

Hola amigos!

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)

Stay tuned! :)

Same dress, different outfit. This dress looks completely different . Like a playful babydoll. It changes me in a free spirit that only wants to spin around and around!
Oh summer, please never end.

New hair, don't care

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.

This was my summer

Because there suddenly appeared a new post on the 21th, this post had to move a few days later. Sorry for that :)

Summer is officially over now, since it's the 21th of September. Or perhaps on the 24th, but in my eyes the 21th is the first day of autumn. Also my classes start on Monday. A new year, a fresh start it is! So time for a little summer recap. Of course I did a lot more then summarized here, but this were some unforgettable experiences!

I'm starting a little bit ahead of summer, because it was such a magical experience that I had to share it!

We decided to have a little pick-nick on a most-of-the-time-abandoned airfield while watching the sunset. Quite romantic don't you think? Unfortunately it cooled down really fast afterwards and I was dressed for a hot summer day. So I borrowed a pair of his sweatpants and felt like a hip-hopper while biking home.

One of the first exciting things this summer, going to the festival Copacobana in Ghent with Ruby, Elleke and Katrijn. It' s a two day festival and we had the luck that we all study in Ghent and our dorm rooms are their. Sleeping accommodation: check! On day one it rained cats and dogs but that didn't bother the partying crowd. Despite of the rain there was a very good atmosphere and we danced and danced until the morning light! Ok, maybe a few hours earlier than that. On day two we met a group of international students and for the first time in our lives we talked English the whole evening.

In July I went to one of our many Antwerp dates with my friend Lynn. This time we spend the whole afternoon planning the camp we would give together the next week. And afterwards we made an evening walk around Antwerp including the MAS rooftop.

This summer I gave three camps, as an animator/monitor I mean. Two of them were themed, Fireman Sam-, and Dora and Diëgo-camp! Great times with buddy Lynn again. :)

Then it was time for another festival! The local Meadownight this time. I helped zhe boyfriend and his friends preparing the one day festival and had a great time the day itself. It's just a bit sad that the evening had to end with a scary storm that reminded a little of Pukkelpop 2011.

Later on it was time for another festival, a bigger one this time, which I was looking forward to the whole year: Casa Blanca. It was really amazing to experience it with my boyfriend for the first time, and with my other great friends too of course! I'm reaaaaally curious to see how my disposable camera pics will turn out!

Another thing that happened a lot apart from festivals were parties! Here we were on a local scouts party: Nacht van de Longman, while waiting for the Belgian group Halve Neuro.

Having a perfect hairday...
...while studying.
Those two things don't go very well together unfortunately.
Then the less fun part of this summer. Resits.

Right after resits my love and I went on a city trip to Budapest! Finally some travelling! There probably will come another post about our journey. But all I can say now is that it was simply amazing!

And here we are now.
Goodbye summer, and welcome autumn!

A hint of chic

Once upon a time there was a girl, living in a small town. It was right in the middle of summer and several heat waves had past, but today wasn't like that. Today the weather was ok. "It's the perfect moment to grab my new top", thought the girl. So she dressed up in her brand new lace top and a pair of skinny pants. Standing in front of her dresser, looking at her reflection, she saw there was something missing. A drop of colour. So she grabbed her lipstick and painted her lips red. Not too bright, she didn't want to draw attention. But she did like the feeling of lipstick on her lips, so she added her basic coloured MAC lipstick. Looking at her jewellery stand, her eyes fell on those special earrings, the ones her mum bought when she was about the same age, nearly thirty years ago. While putting them on, she spotted her chic Juicy Couture sunglasses. She insisted on wearing them, even though the sun wasn't shining that bright. It all looked perfectly, she thought while nodding her head. But then the girl remembered she just had to go to the supermarket and the post office that day, to buy a stamp for Ruby's birthday card and some last festival essentials. And she concluded that her look was way too chic. After a moment of reflection, she decided to change for a pair of casual jeans shorts, and added some casual old sandals. Thereafter the girl left, perhaps a little overdressed, but still feeling comfortable in her casual chic outfit, to the local post office in her small town.
