Tiny dancer in my hand

I had no clue as to what I was going to wear so I randomly decided I wanted to wear my ballerina skirt again. I thought it looked quite nice with the menswear-inspired long blouse layered over it, and with my wingtips. Sort of girl meets boy? And yes, pastels again! I have a feeling pastels are going to be HUGE this spring, hahaha
shirt: pimkie
skirt, cardi: h&m
shoes: sacha


After not being in Antwerp for two weeks, I felt like I was missing out on all the cool stuff in the shops so before I had to meet up with some classmates to work on an assignment, I quickly hopped into some of my favorite stores. I knew what I was looking for: a bra and a denim jacket. Denim jackets are one of those things that used to be HUGE when I was in high-school and now almost no one wears them anymore, except the preppy rich snob types. And all of a sudden, when I saw this look on Amos_photography’s chictopia ,I suddenly realized I NEEDED one. I mean, is there any better way to casualize (:D) a sweet, light spring/summer dress? How could I have forgotten about denim jackets!
So I first browsed the H&m website because I know they have quite a nice selection of denim jackets, made my pick (you will see it on my blog one of these days ) and also picked out two bras (one is more of a bustier I plan on wearing as a summertop), a supercute striped dress that is very Brigitte Bardot or some other super feminine retro star, and.. wait for it… socks!
Not every purchase has to be glamorous!:-D


When I was walking the streets of Antwerp, I spotted a gorgeous girl riding her bike. All the super stylish people in Antwerp seem to be riding a bike! But this person wasn't going that fast so I dared to stop her  and ask her and her companion for a picture! I absolutely love the juxtaposition of her almost bald scalp with the very feminine, kind of retro look. The boy was also very nicely dressed! Great way to make a suit-look appear casual!

  2. great outfit! i love the menswear shirt with the frilly skirt. and the colors are perfect together. and way to go stopping that couple for a pic! how cool. every once in a while, i'll see someone i want to photograph for the blog but i chicken out. maybe i should take a cue from you and just do it. it's fun to see what the stylish people wear in your city.
