Floral Brogues

Guys, prepare yourselves for the AWESOMENESS that is my new camera. Yesterday's pics didn't show it yet, but I'm really loving today's shots and I imagine things are only going to get better as I learn how to use my DSLR properly! 



I.AM.IN.LOVE. These look so retro! Also, when I set it to timer it shoots like 6 or 7 pictures in a row which allows me to do awesome dynamic poses and pick the one I like best! Expect to see even MORE jumping/twirling shots from now on :-)

As you can see I've concocted a new hairstyle again. I wore my lovely flower headwreath and pinned my hair up to cover the ribbon on the back of my head. My boyfriend thought I looked like a kid on her way to her confirmation but I think it looks more weddingy than childlike. He just doesn't WANT to see it. I loved how it went with my simple little summerdress and of course my lovely floral brogues! The weather has been incredibly hot and sweaty lately, so dressing kinda nekkid was a must. To cool down, we went out to have ice cream at this fancy ice cream parlor in Sint Niklaas, Cremerie François! Totally recommend it if you're in the neighborhood :-)



My nails look a bit crazy but I like 'em anyway. This is what I do with my time when I SHOULD be studying: putting 10 different colors on my nails.



I had my second exam today and it was hella easy. I finished asap because the monthly T2 sales are upon us again, and I had invited my mom and sis over to check it out since they had never been there before. Yes, you heard right, SOMEHOW they live only half an hour of driving away from Antwerp, and STILL they haven't been to my DREAMSHOP! They are clearly crazy in the coconut. Anyway, they came over and they obviously agreed that they were insane for having missed out on the BRILLIANCE that is T2 until now. My sis bought like 12 skirts, blouses and dresses (can't wait to see pictures of each and every single piece because they looked so prrrrrty), my mom bought about 9 and I bought 13. Everything was 2 euro a piece. Seriously I cannot get over how awesome that store is. Also, stuff just FITS better than your average H&M shiz. Lord knows how much I adore H&M, but their fit is usually off and completely unflattering on anyone with any shape whatsoever. My sis is a gorgeous hourglass with ample boobage, and the dresses she bought all fit her like a dream: SO happy for her! She bought this one PERFECT Mad Men Peggy Olson esque dress that I am madly in love with and I am so sad I'm too small to wear it :( Anyway, I'm over the moon with the stuff I bought. I got two vintage swimsuits that I'm DYING to show you guys, one even has CONICAL BOOBS SRSLY I DIE. I also stocked up on blouses to cut the sleeves off since I've been HANKERING for sleeveless blouses but they are all ugly or expensive in regular stores.

All in all: a fiiiine day!

dress: H&M
flower headwreath: Etsy (little honey pies)
floral brogues: New Look

  4. Oh, that first picture is one to frame for sure!
    L-O-V-E your nails, too much time is never bad for anything :) (except maybe when you're nervous but ok)
    Curious about your new purchases.

  6. Bhumi: thanks! The headband goes around my head like this:

    I just folded my hair up over the back of the headband loosely and pinned it in a roll like structure quite messily! Just try it out because I'm a total hairn00b and I just mess about to get something together!

    this is a clearer pic of the back:

  8. Foto's zijn ZOveel mooier. Het is echt een supergoed toestel, heel erg leuk om mee te werken. Zelfs na 2,5 jaar ben ik er nog steeds een beetje verliefd op. Je haar is zo echt supermooi en de brogues zijn zalig! Lopen ze lekker? De ijsjes zien er prachtig en lekkah uit. Ik ga morgen of overmorgen foto's maken van al m'n aanwinsten. Zucht, *kijkt om naar mooie kleren*. :-D

  10. Does this magical T2 shop have a website?? It sounds too good to be true. In fact, yep, I think you made it up!

  11. Hannah: sadly it doesn't, they should TOTALLY start a webshop!! but then probably the prices would skyrocket :D

  21. These photos are amazing!! And you're right, you're only going to improve. Can't wait! :)
    Was thinking about doing my nails tonight, and now I'm definitely going to steal your idea!

  22. I'd just been thinking today that you never seem to have an outfit repeat and now I know why-- can't believe you find vintage dresses so cheaply!! I'm super envious. It's getting harder and harder to find good, inexpensive vintage here, especially since I'm a curvier lady.

    The ice cream pictures made me want dessert so badly! What are the 2 treats on the left? Some sort of shake?

  23. You look so pretty Annebeth! I am loving those floral oxfords as well. I'm a big fan of the style but my bf absolutely hates them - he says they look like something my grandmother would wear. I actually have to disagree with both you and your bf though - the dress and flower wreath remind me of a forest nymph more hehe :D

    P.S. I was finally able to make up my mind and pick something on Shopbop! I'll let you know when my order arrives ^_^

  24. what a lovely dress, and your hair piece and nail polish are the cutest!!!

  27. You look SO beautiful. I'm envious of everything you're wearing, and also of how beautiful your pictures turned out! And I LOVE your crazy fingernails! You have the best manicures!

  28. I really need a new camera if I see your pics, I'm still working with a very normal small one :( I am so curious to see the things you bought in T2. In Ghent the shop is soooo close to my door but I don't know why, I never find my thing - maybe I should go with you...:)

  29. awww pretty pretty princess!
    I looooove those shoes so much, aah!
    Congrats on the new camera, have I mentioned I'm jealous? ;)

    And the photos of the ice cream cafe confections make me miss Europe soooo much

  34. Je nagels zien er leuk uit :D Ik lak dus ook altijd mijn nagels terwijl ik moet studeren...
    Ik vind het leuk om te lezen dat je weer een hoop nieuwe spulletjes hebt kunnen bemachtigen! Kan niet wachten om ze te zien :)

  35. I'm with you on this one, you look much more bridal like (in a very cute hippie way) than girly like. Very cute!

    Hmm can I got to T2 too? And also, get a DSLR? :P

    ReplyDelete
  36. Je ziet er echt super leuk uit! :D
    Elke keer als ik dat jurkje zie in de h&m denk ik: "zal ik het doen?"
    Ik heb namelijk al precies hetzelfde jurkje maar dan met een print. Mrja het jurkje is zo zomers en het nederlandse weer is nou ook weer niet gemaakt voor twee dezelfde zomerse jurkjes..
    Hoewel.. als ik zo je fotos zie kom ik heel erg in de verleiding het de volgende keer gewoon te kopen xD

    Also.. T2 klinkt HEMELS *-* ik ben zo benieuwd wat je gekocht hebt!
    (en ik ben een nieuwe follower yay!)

  37. These shots are so beautiful! I love your little dress. It definitely says wedding to me! I love how you did your hair. Ahhh, makes me want my hair longer. D:

    AH. I NEED THAT FOOD.

  38. ! You are a dream! First of all, your nails are awesome. Flat out awesome. (so awesome, I pinned it to Pinterest, hee) I wish I had more than 3 nail polish colours, I'd try doing the same...

    I love the floral wreath and white dress with those shoes and... LOVE.

    And all those ice cream dishes have me wanting to nom some too, preferably out on my terrace while reading. Maybe I can make this happen...

  45. I my god I guess this is one if my favorites! You look so ADORABLE!
    And the pictures are so pretty, but there's a bit image noise, is it possible!? Maybe you should try to set the ISO lower.
