KIND OF PREPPY










I wore this look last week (still figuring out how to manage photographing my looks now that I live in  a student room in Antwerp) for the first day of school. I'd forgotten how difficult it was to pack clothes for a week, since I always decide what I will be wearing when I wake up. Result: I had packed clothes that were not suitable for the sudden drop of temperatures and voila: I got sick at the end of the week. I hope this cold will be over soon, I'm running out of handkerchiefs :-)

DWARS DOOR MECHELEN 2012









As I told you yesterday, I entered a running competition. I ran 5km, but I don't know my time yet. It will be in the newspaper today, so exciting :-)
So, what are you looking at?
1. My sister and I, just before the start
2. My sister and I, just after the start :-) It's extremely obvious here just how small I am. Look at her legs, they go on forever!
3. Le me, arriving :-)
4. My sister and I, just after the finish
5. Close-up of my medal, so proud!


PS: I just found out that I did very well :-) I'm pleased to say that I ran 5km in 33 minutes!

LAZY SUNDAY, I GUESS NOT..







It's that day again, where there's such thing as a "lazy Sunday" for me.. I'm entering a running "competition" today, called Dwars Door Mechelen. Although it is called a competition, I don't see it that way :-) I'm not in it to win it (I'm not THAT trained, athletic...), I would just like to finish it.

This is the third time I will be entering the competition (again the word), but this year will be the most difficult one yet, I guess. Not only is it like freezing cold outside, it will be raining too and I'm stuck with this completely annoying cold! Not the best circumstances to run 5km, if you ask me. Last year, I entered as well with my dad and two sisters, but this year it will be just me and my younger sister. My dad will get his shot in a couple of weeks, though :-)

LEATHER SHORTS









Another look from a couple of days ago, back when it was still a bit warmer :-) I wore my new leather shorts for the first time and I'm glad to say I love them! I think the details at the bottom just make them a little bit softer and more feminine. Just the way I like it! 

Those who follow me on twitter already know this, but I moved to my room in Antwerp on Sunday. This means I don't have a photographer with me at all times, but I will post as many outfits as possible :-)

STREET STYLE LFW

Even though London Fashion Week is over, I still love flipping through street style pictures. These were a couple of my favorites this year. Which one do you like best?

AHOY MATEY!






I feel like I'm a pirate in this outfit, now that I'm looking at the pictures :-) Good thing I'm wearing my collar necklace, which makes the look a bit more girly.

My canon camera isn't working at the moment, so sad! I have to take pictures with the oldest camera ever, so never mind the poor quality. I hope my camera gets fixed really soon!

A SMALL GET-TOGETHER








I met up with friends on Wednesday, we had a lot of fun! We hadn't seen each other in a couple of months (in holidays, it's always so hard to meet all at the same time), so it was time to catch up, big time! Temperatures are quickly dropping these days sadly, but this jacket is just perfect for the rather cold moments. I bought it at the end of the sales, but I'd seen it hanging on the racks weeks earlier. Still can't believe it was the right size and all :-)

LITTLE BLACK DRESS










I've had this dress for years and I still love everything about it! The length, the soft fabric, the lightness,... I've worn it with heels, sandals and ballet flats but on Monday, I decided to wear the dress with All Stars :-)

ANNA DELLO RUSSO FOR H&M

I'm really excited about the Anna Dello Russo's accessories collection for H&M. I already loved her music video :-) I love her statements, like: "I am the guardian of fashion" and "You need a fashion shower". She also shares her wisdom in some rules about fashion. My favorites: "Fashion is always uncomfortable", "If someone is wearing the same outfit as you, wonderful!" and "Wear your coat as a dress" :-)

I like the collection she made. Especially the bracelets and the rings. I already have a couple of snake bracelets, these ones will be perfect to expand my collection :-) We still have to wait a couple of weeks, the Anna Dello Russo for H&M accessories collection lands in-store on October 4.


Here's the music video, in case you haven't seen it yet :-)
