Meet Margarita

Meet Margarita! A half Argeninean, half Greek girl who lives in Athens, Greece. She blogs for Carolinesmode and that's where I 'discovered' her blog. I could wear e v e r y t h i n g what's she's wearing right away! I love her simple looks, spiced up with some bohemian touches. I am sure that, after you checked out her blog, you'll love her as much as I do. Take a look at the videos too! Her boyfriend is a moviemaker and he makes stunning videos of their travel journeys.

Driver's license

Beware! Happy girl alert! I'm now the proud owner of a driver's license! After not passing my first driver's test two weeks ago, I made a new appointment (this Tuesday). And - despite the very bad weather and nearly a car crash - I passed it! I already made loads of posts about getting my driver's licence, so - if you're interested - you can find them here, here, here, here and here. And oh, I thought it was funny to add some songs about cars in this blogpost. Enjoy listening!

A bit preppy

/ Katrien De Waele
My second outfit in less than a month, woo-hoo! Katrien took these pictures of me after the swapping event I organised (remember?). A lot of people declined because of schoolwork, a concert... but that didn't made it less fun! The first picture is a bit 'my uniform'. The combination of my coat, a skinny jeans and ankle boots always works for me. Because my coat is so big and large, it only matches with a skinny jeans or a mini dress and tights - bootcut jeans or a loose pants is a big no go! The checkered shirt is one of the results of my swap night. It was a bit too big for Hester, but it fitted perfectly for me! Combined with my blazer it looks a bit preppy, no? And what do you think about my Isabel Marant lookalike booties?

To clutch or not to clutch

I've mentioned it before, but I'll tell it again: my cousine is getting married in May. It is thé event of the year for my family and we're all really looking forward to it. I already found my dress - and since yesterday also my shoes! It's a black dress (but with a very beautiful cut: a bit loose and somewhat bohemian) and my shoes are taupe/yellow. Thanks to the Belgian brand Essentiel I got inspired to add some colourful accessories to spice up my outfit. I am a black and grey lover, but: it's a wedding, not a funeral. My shoes already give some colour to the outfit, so now it's time for the accessories! First question: to clutch or not to clutch? I've never owned a clutch before, but I think the time has come to do my first clutch-purchase, haha. The ones above are from American Apparel and it's most likely I'll buy a clutch from them. But! The most difficult question is (oh, what a luxury problem): what colour? My shoes are kinda yellow, so I think my clutch has to be in another colour (otherwise I'll look like a bee - black and yellow, you know). And my earrings should be in another colour too! And my nailpolish too! Here are some pictures from Essentiel to give you some inspiration to help me out. Merci d'avance.

"I am so busy"

I know this picture would be better in a private photo album than on a public blog, but I don't have any 'fashion related pictures' to show you. Truth is: I didn't do anything fashion related the past few days. No that's not true... I went looking for high heels in Ostend, but I didn't find any. As you'd probably all guessed: I did not pass my driver's test (although it went very well, according to my dad and me). But no worries, I have an other appointment on Tuesday. The boy next to me is my brother, by the way. We were working in our new allotment (volkstuintje in Dutch) on Saturday and even if it was the first time (I never ever worked in a garden before), I enjoyed it very much! Altough, the day after, I felt that my muscles didn't really enjoyed it as much as I did - aw aw aw. Working in a garden is really 'working', you know? I enjoyed some quality time with my honey (a.ka. my boyfriend) on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday and now have to be concentrated on some schoolwork. My internship starts again in 2 weeks and I still have a lot of things to do! As people like to say these days: "I'm so busy!". Oh, and thank you for all the sweet 'good luck' wishes! I hope they'll do their work on Tuesday ;-)

Wish me luck!

I'm having my driver's test tomorrow and I'm so so so nervous! I'm in a desperate need for some peptalk... (hint hint) The man in the polaroid picture is my grandfather. He passed away two years ago, but I hope he's crossing his fingers for me somewhere above :-) Burn a candle around 1PM, people!

5 things...

I've never really showed you pictures of my studio in Ghent so here are two pictures of my two favourite spots: my tiny 'living room' and my bed. I have some big windows in my studio and that's something I absolutely adore. I like looking out of my window and watch people, lay in the sun on my bed, drink a glass of wine in my sofa when it's getting dark... I know I'm a lucky girl to have parents who want to pay this for me. A full 'studio-tour' will follow soon, promise! 

I've made a Facebook page! If you like my blog, you can like me here too if you want...

The beginning of spring means: the season of strawberries started! A strawberry-milkshake is a perfect semi-healthy snack if you ask me. And so easy to make! All you need is strawberries, milk and granulated sugar.

I will host a swapping event with some friends in a few weeks and I'm so excited! Hopefully everybody will get rid of some things and go home with a few lovely pieces. 

Italy! Beware! This young lady is coming to you in July for about 20 days! This picture with my brother is taken two years ago in Granada, Spain. I was so blonde and so tanned! No wonder my boyfriend fell in love with me a few weeks later, haha ;) I already went three times to Italy and although Spain (Andalucia) was very beautiful, Italy stole my heart a long time ago...

Oh, Jeanne!

Jeanne Damas, what a woman! Or should I say girl? She's younger than me! But even if she's younger, I don't care - this woman has s-t-y-l-e! And perhaps money too, 'cause all she's wearing is Isabel Marant, Vanessa Bruno, Chloé  and some vintage, Topshop and American Apparel. Well, money is one thing - but she mixes all these brands into one perfect outfit. Her messy ombre hair, endless legs and her big (mostly red) lips make her one of Paris most important it-girls. And one of my favourite it-girls, too. If everybody would add a little of Jeanne's nonchalance to it's life and wardrobe, this world would look much better! I hope she inspires you too...
