I don’t like the H&M sales as it tends to be too crowded and messy in the stores. Just before the start of the sales though (at the end of June mind you… I didn’t go shopping now as I am on my 50-day-challenge !!), they do reduced prices on some articles. The only condition is that you’ve got to buy at least two reduced articles… no problem for me there ! So about a week before the actual sales start, I’m off to H&M to see if I can find some bargains.
During the summer sales, I always try and buy things that I can still wear on colder summer days and in the autumn. We don’t have an extremely long summer season, so I usually don’t buy that many really summery stuff. This time I bought a soft pink midi skirt. Read more about this outfit!
I’ve been to Primark in Brussels recently… I know… Primark… Boy was it crowded over there ! To be honest with you, I didn’t think it was a shop for a 40+ woman… but I actually bought some things there and I must confess… they will be seeing me again !
I have been searching for a white skinny jeans for quite some time now, but there was always something wrong : too shiny, too sheer, not elastic enough,… so when I tried on a white jegging at Primark, I didn’t put my hopes up. But was I in for a surprise !! Read more about this outfit!
Today’s outfit is built around a black midi skirt I bought at H&M. The fabric is quite thick and stiff which gives it a fifties look. I bought the skirt last summer, but I also wore it several times last autumn and winter. It’s really versatile, but then I like versatile stuff as I can style it according to the occasion and the mood I’m in. I would be bored wearing the same things together all the time so I like making up all sorts of combinations with my clothes. Read more about this outfit!
I pampered myself with a very beautiful white linen summer dress… My husband and I went to the seaside resort Knokke a couple of weeks ago. As it is only a one hour’s drive, we go there regularly to get that so needed fresh sea air. We are no beach-goers… we go to Knokke to wine and dine in one of the many brasseries and restaurants, to pop into one of the many galleries and to stroll around the shopping streets.
This time I stepped into East, a shop at the Lippenslaan. Skimming through the clothes racks, I was immediately drawn to this beautiful summer dress in white linen, covered in sparkly bronze coloured flowers. Read more about this outfit!
One of the recurring trends each summer is the maxi floral dress. Every woman should have one ! Of course you can get a pricey, top-designer dress (and if your wallet stretches that far I can only encourage you to do so !!), but perhaps you’d rather spend your cash on basics then on a frivolous dress. As I don’t have the opportunity to wear a maxi floral dress that often, the one I bought at New Look last summer (at a 30% discount) will still do this year. Read more about this outfit!
Every last Friday of the month I will put a little black dress in the picture. As it’s the end of June and high summer is getting closer and closer, the LBD to start with is my strapless one.
I bought it several years ago at H&M for only 20 EUR and I do not regret this purchase at all ! I don’t wear the dress often, it being strapless. But it is such a basic dress which never goes out of style, so who cares that it is I don’t know how many years old ! Read more about this LBD!
Every year early in spring I am tempted to buy new stuff… probably because I am bored with those winter clothes. This year was no different, so in March I bought a pair of bold floral pants, which are a fun trend this spring/summer !
