looking back but thinking forward

The day after Christmas

What a contrast between Christmas day and the day right after Christmas. Yesterday our house was full of people, cake and presents, but today everything was so quiet and felt a little empty. In this post I want to show the contrast that I feel, in pictures. You can say my outfit is something in between the cosy-colorful-christmasy-atmosphere and the empty-greyish-days-after.

cardigan H&M, skirt zara, shoes primark, fake fur head band, bag grandma's
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas day! Are you already looking forward to New Year's Eve?

blue glasses

yellow sweater think twice (second hand), trousers zara,
boots primark, scarf grandma, glasses c/o Proopticals

I think I have never told you before, but I wear glasses! I only wear them in class or when I watch television though. These are not my daily glasses, but Proopticals sent them to me. They have many cheap, fashionable frames, so you should definitely take a look.

Oh and it suddenly started snowing yesterday night! I am so excited about white landscapes and snowball fights, I am less excited about cold feet, though.

summer freckles

I have no time to take any pictures, to think of original outfits, to look for new, good music. Yes, oh life is pretty tough at the moment ;-) Yet I can always find a bit of time to keep my mind off my extra vocabulary lists and to dream about relaxing holidays.

Suddenly I was thinking about the fact that I haven't post any pictures of my trip to Italy from this summer. But I guess it's never too late to do so. Therefore, voil�, some summery pictures! Mmm lovely lovely summer. No time for nostalgia though, it's time to open my books again. See ya!

All pictures taken by Laura and me. For more pictures, check out the album on our facebook page, here :)

Oh Dear November

I always like to browse through my recently taken pictures because while looking at these, I don't only remember where I hung out and what I did but I also remember the atmosphere and my mood. I think it's nice that I am able to capture life and immortalize moments. Anyway, here is the (delayed) medley of my November pictures for you.
- grainy days can be beautiful
- foggy days are always beautiful
- but sunny days are still the best.
In November we had a fun mix of grainy, foggy and sunny days.

- I went to the SecondHand SecondLife Les Petits Riens fashion show in Brussels.
- I met Mami Tominaga, she writes a blog for Vogue Girl Japan. She contacted me and asked if she could do an interview with me in Brussels. She was such a lovely and sweet girl!

- I went to see Bombay Bicycle Club (together with Lucy Rose!) It was an AMAZING concert, just totally crazy. If you don't know them, you should definitely check them out!
And now I am having exams and my life sucks.

Christmas is around the corner!

sweater H&M, shorts UO, socks New Look, converse
It was weird to put these pictures in my December folder on my computer, the last folder of 2011. Time is flying! Aren't you all excited for Christmas holidays? I can't wait for a lovely, cosy Christmas and a fun New Year's Eve. Oh and I am so going to have complaints about saying this, but I think I need a lot of pretty white snow to come in to a real Christmas mood, because I don't feel the Christmas-y atmosphere yet. I do think a little of Christmas while wearing these socks. And maybe a Christmas tree can help too. But snow is still the best.
(oh and btw, my november monthly photo medley is coming)
