On this final Sunday of August, you might have better things to do then checking my blog… but if you do have some time on hand here’s a recap of what’s been posted this week : on Monday you could read all about the Vichy body lotion I won recently. On Tuesday there was a quote about liking your body (with a picture of me in bikini 🙂 now that’s a thing you won’t see often !). In the how-to-wear post from this week you could see three ways on how to style a seventies dress. The tips ‘n trips post from Thursday brought us to ‘The Bollekesfeest’ in Antwerp.
There were two outfits this week : the outfit of the week (which had my blue chino pants in the lead roll) and as little black dress of the month you could see my summery black dress that I bought in the Provence a couple of years ago.
I am also counting the days to finish my first challenge ! Fifty days of not buying any clothes, bling or accessories… wondering how I’ve been doing ? Next Friday you can read all about it… did I manage or did I fail ?! Just a couple more days now…
And today… on this last Sunday in August I give you… fireworks ! Let’s celebrate this beautiful summer we’ve been having…
Enjoy your Sunday…
I bought these blue chino pants, that take the lead roll in this outfit, at H&M in April… or was it already May ? They were not expensive at all, but I think they look great ! They’re really comfortable. So perfect for a trip along the D-day beaches a couple of months ago (as you can see in this post). I wore my chino pants casually with my Marcel tanktop and my sneakers… oh… what good times we had in beautiful Normandy ! It seems so long ago already ! Wish we could go back… Read more about this outfit!
The LBD of the month is a dress I bought on holiday in the Provence a couple of years ago. We were staying in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, which I can highly recommend visiting, especially on market day ! I like buying clothes on holiday. It gives that little extra, don’t you think ?? Every time you put something on you bought on holiday, it takes you back… but anyway, back to the LBD ! Read more about this LBD!
On this last Friday of August a blue ‘n white theme on the sneak peek… with a touch of brown leather belt… Come back tomorrow to see the entire outfit !
Antwerp has a lot of events, especially in summer. At the end of August you can enjoy the ‘Bollekesfeest‘ which is a series of activities throughout the town : music, dancing, markets, walks and cycle tours and of course eating and drinking (it wouldn’t be Belgium otherwise) ! Read about our trip to the Bollekesfeest in Antwerp!
I like my body because it’s not just mine, but me – Ruby Tandoh
I like my body now (ish…). it was a ride with ups and downs though… I’ve already made my jo jo-confession (in this post), so you know that the scales aren’t exactly what you call my best friends. Every time I got them down to a weight I was ok with, I managed to get them back up again. Read more about the struggles I had with my body and weight!
