Fashion: Pink flowy skirt

Posted on Updated on

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!

Fashion: White jegging

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!

Fashion: Black midi skirt

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!

Fashion: White linen dress

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!

Fashion: Maxi floral dress

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.

Fashion: LBD – Strapless

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!

Fashion: Bold floral pants

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 !
