sweater: c/o We Can Dance festival - watch: c/o Swatch - skinnies: Lee - Quizilo boots (enkellaarzen): Dream In Green via Spartoo
Yeah this outfit is wayyyy too hot for the weather we are currently experiencing, but it was appropriate when I took the pictures and, since I live in Belgium, will undoubtedly be weather appropriate again before you know it. Yeay for countries where autumn lasts half a year and summer just a few weeks! But not really yeay. More like nay. However, lets not dread the end of summer while the season is still in its prime, I'd rather enjoy the beautiful golden evenings we've been getting. Like the one in these pictures. Such beautiful lighting! Btw pro tip: back lighting (when your subject is standing between you and your light source) works best if the person with the camera is standing in the shade, otherwise your camera will have a hard time focusing and getting enough contrast in the picture.
The sweater was gifted to me by the people behind the new We Can Dance festival, an electronic beach fête at Zeebrugge on the 10th and 11th of august. You can check info and buy tickets on their website, or just admire the beautiful sunset ombre they used for their website design. I'm not going because I'm not a huge fan of dance music, but if you go be sure to buy this sweater because it is beautiful and so incredibly soft and comfortable. My sister tried to steal it from me but I knew what she was up to, that conniving little sneak thief! And you already know the boots, my perfect pair of pistol boot lookalikes. Aren't they sublime? They almost make me look forward to autumnal weather.
To get back to the subject of festivals: what shows will you be seeing this summer, and what festivals have you visited? I've seen Lana Del Rey and Die Antwoord, and I'll be seeing Danzig, Deep Purple, Monster Magnet and Alice Cooper at the Lokerse Feesten soon. YEAY!
