Hey babes! First of all: thanks for all your feedback on my alteration conundrum. I've made up my mind about shortening the dress a bit (I'm thinking JUST covering the knees), but I'm still not sure about what I'm going to change on top. It'll be a work of stages I'm afraid!
Also, so sorry I didn't post anything last night but I was out with my sister and our boyfriends, we went to see the last Harry Potter movie and loved it. Of course the books will always be better, but the movie adaptations did a pretty decent job. The 3 last movies were my faves out of the series, but it's hard to choose between the last two: Deathly Hallows part one was a better movie because of the mood and the slow character development, while the latter was of course pretty epic with the huge battles and the beautiful conclusion to the franchise.
I guess I was just a tiny bit too old to be entirely emotionally invested in the HP series, but I imagine it being incredibly important for an entire generation of youths. I think we all owe J.K. Rowling one for giving us such a beautiful story with such lovely characters. Too bad the gender ratio wasn't 1:1 when it comes to important characters, but thank god she gave us Hermione, Luna, Ginny (kinda crappy in the movies but cool in the books), McGonagal and all those strong motherly figures. The end of an era!
Now on to today's outfit. I wanted to wear this skirt for some reason and this blouse caught my eye: I LOVE this little piece and I cannot believe I haven't worn it in ages because it is LOVELY. Remind me to wear this thing again if I fail to do so!
The sailboat print totally goes with my sailor jacket, no? I'm giving you all a taste of fall with today's outfit. We're experiencing full on autumn in July over here in Belgium so I might as well go with it and enjoy the layering, n'est ce pas? This outfit really reminded me of Rhiannon of Liebe Marlene: check out her blog if you don't know it already, she's basically amazingly stylish in this really soft, feminine, understated retro way. LOVE her.

And now for some foodporn! I made pasta a la norma after seeing Rick Stein's mediterranean escapes (the Sicily episode) and found the recipe here. I'd add some more tomatoes if I made it again, and not drain them as much because the sauce was just a bit too dry, but the FLAVORS! Oh my! I have never eaten anything vegetarian that was THIS good, and I'm not even an aubergine fan! Everything was amazing together, and it's a lot lighter than spaghetti with meat sauce so I'm totally recommending it.
YUM! I really want to start cooking more vegetarian meals. I have an environmental conscience!
Have a lovely night babes :)
