From Brussels with Love: Day at the Office No ratings yet.

Hi guys,
Can you imagine that we’ve already arrived at the middle of the week? I know most of you work at the office and indeed, sometimes it gets lonely having to stay at home and not having a closet packed with office clothes, but I still wanted to show off a really cute office look that I personally would wear to work !
Since my Manfield shoes have a 70s vibe to them, I thought I should add a more feminine touch in the upper part of my outfit, just to sweeten the deal. Now these shoes can be worn in many ways and you can definitely play on the masculine style and wear them with a pair of pants, in a suit..you know, go full rogue in that direction. But here, I wanted to build a softer look. The shiny leather is quite an unique touch to the shoes and the thick heel makes them a comfortable pair of shoes that you can actually walk in and stay all day at the office. Add a pencil skirt, a pair of tights and an envelope clutch and you’re good to go for this Fall !

New Obsession No ratings yet.

Hello new jumper of dreams I simply can’t get enough of. It’s all about new knitwear for me at the moment, I’ve been loving filling my wardrobe with various different knits to keep me going throughout the cold spell. As much as I love wearing the fail-safe combo of a jumper and jeans, I must admit it’s starting to get a little boring! This has led to me buying countless jumpers (which I definitely don’t need but I’m also not complaining too much…)

Despite currently living in jumpers and jeans, for the sake of avoiding being too repetitive with my outfits I decided to give the jeans a break (albeit not for long I imagine) and pop on my favourite skirt of the winter. I’m genuinely surprised by how much I’ve worn this vinyl skirt as I didn’t think the vinyl trend was for me. Believe it or not, I wasn’t actually sure about whether I’d get much, if any, wear out of it but it just works with everything I own!

I’ve paired this skirt with both simple roll neck tops and thick knit jumpers like this one for a casual approach and love the way it comes together – there’s something about it that is so effortlessly stylish. By default I would associate a vinyl skirt with dressing up and going out but I haven’t even tried styling it for a night out and am rather enjoying dressing down this statement piece.

Of course I need to talk a bit about this jumper, I’m loving the fact stripes are making a comeback and these bold colours are super fun! I’ve spotted so many amazing striped knits recently and I just want them all! I have my eye on those rainbow tops everybody seems to be wearing right now. This jumper is New Look and I’m completely obsessed with the colour combo, there’s something really retro about it that I love. Available in four different colourways: pink (the one I’m wearing), red and blue, I tried two out of the three and decided on keeping the pink because I really loved the combination of colours.

One thing I love about experimenting with my style is the discoveries I make whilst doing so. This skirt and jumper combo is one I would probably steer clear of but I really love the combination of colours and textures. This outfit somehow manages to be stylish (at least in my opinion) and perfect for winter!

Valentine’s Day Outfit is Also Great for the Holidays No ratings yet.

It is that time of the year, Valentines day is here again! It is actually one of my favourite holidays…..although I feel like I say that about every holiday haha. I love Valentines day because I love the idea of celebrating love and taking the time to make the day special. For this outfit I decided to go for a more subtle Valentines Day look. I am wearing this lips sweater from Forever 21, which is currently still in stores! and on sale! check out the link below. I layered the sweater over a white chiffon blouse just so that I have a little bit of white peaking through to break up the outfit. I paired it with a plain pleated black skirt and Fishnet tights to give the outfit some interest. I also wore one of my favourite coats ! I love how simple it is because it matches basically every outfit. And for my favourite part of the outfit, the beret! I found this love brooch at H&M they are made up of individual letters so you can set it up however you want ! I decided to put them on a red beret and I LOVE (pun intended) how it looks! If you want to see this outfit in video I also posted a clip of it on my youtube channel ! link here. I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend, make sure you check out my Instagram for more pictures over the weekend !
