OOTD: Finally a kimono!

Ever since the kimono became more popular, I wanted one. Especially in summer this piece is so functional: whenever it is too hot to wear a cardigan or a blazer, but too cold to walk around in bare shoulders, simply put on a kimono! :D Yep, I was convinced of this trend from the start, buth as it goes with trends, I only buy them when I'm truly, 100% convinced of the piece. This turned out to be quite a difficult point for me because it took me almost a year since I first saw a kimono to actually buy one.

NOTD: gradient and studs

It's been aaaages since I last painted my nails! Since July I didn't have time to do my nails because of the exams or didn't have the motivation, but now I finally made them special again! :D

Shoplog: Antwerp!

A friend of mine and I have this tradition to go shopping after each exam period. We couldn't combine to go last June, but could now so we went to Antwerp, YAY. :D I bought some clothing at Forever21 (duh!), Pull&Bear and Pimkie and something at Lush too (more or less duh!). 

Let's start with the piece I'm most excited about, a vest from Pull & Bear.

Parisian shoplog

Being three days in Paris of course also asks for some shopping time. I had made a wish list and in the end I succeeded in buying or visiting every item or shop I wanted to! :D Since the friend I went visiting knew the city very well I only had to give her the addresses of the shops and she planned when we would go where. This way we passed the shopping street and the shop I wanted to go most on the first day. Most damage was thus done on that first day. :p

OOTD: Three days in Paris

A friend of mine is working as an au pair in Paris and had invited me and a common friend of us to stay some time with her while her au pair family were on holidays. Since I finished exceptionally early with the retakes of my exams I could go! We spent three days together and we mixed  culture, a lot of food and of course excellent company: perfect combination for a perfect city trip! Since we were more on a visit to a friend instead of a visit to a city I didn't take that much pictures, besides those with my friends, but I do have pictures from my outfits. :D

OOTD: Studying in Levi's

Pants are the least favourite item to shop to me. Simply because they are so annoying to fit. I lose my balance like extremely quickly, and fitting pants in a tiny fitting room while losing your balance is no fun at all. So when I decided the time was right for me to go actively on the hunt for a high waist jeans, I needed some time to prepare myself. But mission accomplished! I bought a gorgeous Levi's pants with which I can finally wear my crop tops! :D I also have a high waist shorts, but haven't been able to wear that one in Belgium yet. And Belgian summer is quite over, methinks... BUT thanks to my high waist Levi's I can still wear my crop tops! :D

NOTD: gradient and tape

To get nail art inspiration I mostly browse Pinterest. I've tried to reproduce some examples, but every time they turned out to be not exactly what I had in mind, i.e. the source of inspiration. After several of those fails, I decided to use that inspiration in a different way: using bits and pieces of several sources to make my own piece of inspiration. Or well, that is always what I try to do. :p Problem with taking bits and pieces to make your own piece is that it is hard to find the source back. Feel free to take a look at my nail art inspiration board at Pinterest to guess which nail arts might have inspired me to make this nail art. (;
