Fashion Flash #1

Hey Guys,

There are a few items I've seen passing on the internet that I absolutely love and wanted to blog about. The autumn/winter collections are slowly but surely filling the racks of the stores and even if the sun is still giving its best I'm already looking for a nice pair of boots and a gorgeous coat to keep me warm in Winter. Bloggers are starting to chat about the new a/w collections that they've seen on the runways and that's what I'm going to do. Here is the first and quick little post about three things I'm absolutely loving!

This gorgeous Burberry poncho Cara Delevigne wore on their show. This just screams fall to me! A big blanket that you can throw on when you're a little chilly while sipping a hot chocolate (with marshmallows of course). I can really picture myself wearing this on a snowy day walking the dog in the country side with rainboots and a felt fedora hat. Sadly I'll probably never own this because of its somewhat expensive price tag of €1.050 (auwtch, my dream just got shattered). But if I win the lottery, I'll definitely have this hanging in my closet. (please God, bear with me).

I love me some Mulberry AND bucket bags. If these two collab, you get this. A beautiful bag called the Kensington. Still classy, but a little more exciting than the normal black bag. The colour/leather is absolutely gorgeous and it has a certain casual look to it. Right up my alley but sadly I haven't won the lottery yet. With a pricetag of a little under €2000 it's a 'bit' over my budget.

And last but not least are these River Island Light Wash Ashley Slim Boyfriend jeans. I've always loved the effortless look of the boyfriend style but never thought I could pull it off, but when I saw these on asos I convinced myself I should try it out. Because they're the 'slim boyfriend jeans' they look a little more feminine than the really baggy ones, perfect to wear with a pair of pointy toe heels, a white blouse with statement necklace, a beautiful clutch and a pair of big sunglasses. I don't have to tell you that I'll probably order them soon (since they are the more affordable out of the three), I see a haul coming up here!

Do you have any fashion faves you're absolutely in love with?

Wishlist #LostCount

We all love to do some shopping right? And what do we do if the money is gone? oh yes, we make wishlists for when the money is back! I was browsing on some online stores (like I do most of the time) and came across these beautiful items. 

This white/silver long skirt is just stunning. The whole skirt is made out of little rhinestones. It looks so chique and glam and so much more expensive than it actually is! I know €125 is still a lot of money, but this skirt seriously looks like a thousand dollars worth! It reminds me of the glamorous life of Marilyn Monroe or even The Great Gatsby (Topshop - €125)

A simple but classy coral blouse that would look amazing tucked into a high waisted jeans with a gorgeous statement necklace for a casual outfit, but also perfect with a pencil skirt and some high heels! This shirt is so versatile, but the colour adds a little 'fun' to it. (Topshop - €40)

I've been looking for a wallet for a while now, I didn't want to pay a crazy amount but I still wanted it to be good quality and preferably 'designer'. I just fell in love when I found this one from Tory Burch, the colour is a gorgeous pinky red called kir royal and it's made of saffiano leather which makes it very durable and less likely to get scrated. The colour doesn't shows up exactly the same but here's a link so you can check out all of the colours (Tory Burch - €190)

Now onto an item every Sex And The City lover and fashionista has seen pass by! These stunning Manolo Blahniks were Carrie Bradshaw's 'something blue' in the first SATC movie and are my love at first sight! A little over my budget, but these shoes seriously deserve a moment of silence; feminine, elegant, chique and classy all at the same time. They scream, I'm an independant, selfmade, classy woman, with great sense of fashion, and I choose to wear something a little more exciting than the simple black or nude court shoes. (Manolo Blahnik - €764,67)

Well hello there, beauty. An uber sophisticated version of the skort. Ready to wear to prom. The skort has been taken to the next (more classy) level, and hell yeah I love it! (Topshop - €65)

This one here is a whole other story. It evens out all the class and glamour on my wishlist by giving the famous 'Devil wears Prada' a little twist. A more casual T, that would look amazing with some skinny jeans, clutch and heels, because this hometown girl still need a little class. (Asos - €25,35)

Life Post | Beach Week

Hey Guys,

This post is all about my week at the beach with my 3 best friends. I had an amazing time enjoying the weather and life! The weather was beautiful, sun at all times, so perfect for the beach and some cocktails! We stayed in an apartment in 'Heist' (Belgium) but sometimes went to 'Knokke' to do some shopping. Our week mainly consisted out of sunbathing at the beach, Sex and the City, eating and occasionally some drinking. If you ever go to the beach with friends I would highly recommend to buy a bottle of rosé or whatever you like, and go to the beach at night, watch the sunset (later the stars) and just talk about life! The night me and my friends decided to do that was just magical, it was one of the best nights I had in a long time.

#Heist #EnjoyingLife #Blessed
We went to Knokke to get brunch in Pain Quotidien, the best place to get a delicious brunch.  It's not the cheapest place, but definitely worth it!

Whoever said you're too old to jump on the trampoline was horribly wrong! As crazy as I am, I persuaded a friend to jump on the trampoline with me. We got some weird looks, but seriously had the best time! It was so much fun. So be a little crazy in life, it never hurts.
#Heist #You'reNeverTooOld #Fun
The last night of our stay we decided to go to a beach cocktail place and get some dinner afterwards. Sadly I've no food pics, but I can tell you, it was heaven on earth!

Trend spotted | Long coats

Hey Guys,

I wanted to share a trend I've been absolutely loving lately. I'm seeing the long coats everywhere; on online sites, on the streets, blogs etc. They look so sophisticated and chic but still effortless at the same time. I love it when they're worn with tight jeans and hats, but even with heels they look great.
These are some of my favorite from Topshop, the red one is absolutely gorgeous, I might even pick it up.

Even though some people say these coats are only for tall people, I totally disagree. Also short people can wear them, you just have to look a little harder for that one coat that fits you perfectly and looks gorgeous on you. You don't have to listen if they tell you it looks wrong, because you're 'too short'. If you like the coat on you, and think it looks perfect than just do your thing.

Mulberry strikes again

Hey Guys,

Here I am again with yet another blogpost about a sale bargain. Mulberry is one of my favorite designer brands, so I don't have to tell you how excited I was when I found it on sale. These items have been on my wishlist for quite a while, and half off is an opportunity I couldn't miss out on. I know what you're thinking, two designer bags, pair of shoes and two pouches all in one year? Jeeez, this girl must've hit the jackpot. Well, not exactly, the key to buying designer items is to buy them on sale, and of course start saving money, cause even on sale, it can be pretty expensive. But enough ramble about how I got them, now onto what I got.

I added the precious locked cosmetics purse (big one) and the postman's lock keyring pouch (small one) to my collection, both in the pink glossy goat.They're so soft and a gorgeous bright pink colour that will make every inside of a handbag look so much more fun!
I'll probably use the big pouch for makeup and random things such as sunglasses, earphones, gum etc.
This little baby is perfect for my keys and maybe some change. The inside of both pouches is their signature lining they also use in their handbags. In the small pouch, as you can see on the picture, there's a keyring, so you can attach your keys. They both open and close with the postman lock, which is absolutely gorgeous if you ask me!
Either way, I love them both to bits and I'm thrilled with my new purchase.

PS: A special thank you to Marijke from marykejane.blogspot.com for going with me. I had an amazing day and it was sooo nice to finally meet you!
