My 5 favourite looks from last summer

Since it's already raining for a week here in Belgium and i'm stuck inside writing my thesis i thought it would be a good idea to select my favourite summerlooks i wore last year. Perfect method to ignore the raindrops on my window, no seriously it really feels like fall and you don't know how much i long to wear my summer wardrobe again! I just realize that it seems like i loved my hat alot last year, haha. Anyways, i wish you a lovely weekend! :)

For more details about the looks:

Festival inspiration

Hey guys! Is it me or do i see Coachella e-ve-ry-where? I'm sitting here at my desk working on my thesis whilst i keep seeing snaps and instagrams from everyone who was at that happy place. Oh i wish i was there this year, maybe it's a good idea to put my phone somewhere else when i'm working or i'll keep dreaming instead :) But seeing all these people wearing the coolest festival looks gave me inspiration to make a post about what i would wear if i would be there. (oh if only!)

So i went to the webshop of Esprit to select some pieces i would totally see myself in over there. First things first: a hat and some sunnies can't be missing in the look. Secondly: i would want to be comfy whilst i'm dancing in the heat so i opted for some lose fitted clothes and slippers. I also added a necklace to make the look a little more boho. There can't be enough jewelry to wear on Coachella so i would actually layer some more necklaces up to the look.

But allrighty enough dreaming for now, back to my thesis.... I hope this inspired you if you're luckier than me and you're going to a festival soon. Hugs, Annelies

What i wore in Paris

Hey guys! So last week i went to Paris with my boyfriend. It was just for one day, so it went by really quickly! On the other hand we Belgians are actually lucky i think to be able to go to Paris in a couple of hours driving. The best thing was going to the Gucci store, i kept calm but on the inside i was going mental haha, the collection is just sooo good! And the store itself is amazing as well, definitely go and visit that store if you are in Paris! (i posted some stuff from inside the store on my snapchat, you can add me on this username: annelies_hellem)

The day in Paris started not so good actually. I want to talk a bit about it so i could warn you if you see something similar in a big city. Me and my boyfriend were walking around the Arc de Triomphe and there were also a group of girls who spoke to people to try to sign their petition. So at a certain moment my boyfriend was a bit further away while a girl went to my with her petition. Then suddenly i was surounded with a group of those girls who were all screaming with there papers to sign and just a second later they were all gone. My boyfriend didn't even see it happen. I realised that that wasn't something normal so i immediately checked my bag... and everything was gone. I went straight back to those girls and demanded everything back, which they luckely did. I'm so lucky that i  realised that so quickly, otherwise i would have lost everything. So please let this be a reminder if you see something like this... 

Aaanyways, i'm going to wish you a lovely weekend before i write a book about my day in Paris :P Hugs, Annelies

Pick of the day: metallic pleated skirt

I just browsed through the new arrivals at Zara, so many gorgeous pieces at the moment! This skirt is one of my favourites, it really reminded me at that golden skirt in the new Gucci collection. It's a perfect statement piece to dress up or down!

This is one of my favourite looks i wore lately, i really love to mix colors and prints to make them look well put together in an outfit. But don't get me wrong, i also like to wear monochrome and minimal looks from time to time. Fashion is all about wearing what you feel like :) The polkadots you see peeking behind my coat is actually a blazer that i don't like to wear on itself, but the print really is perfect to use as a detail in a look. Hope you like it!

Part of todays dinner

This is what my dinner looked like, soms lime and coriander steamed basmati rice with a ton of stir fried veggies that didn't fit in the picture :p The rice is actually pre steamed (it's from a brand called Tilda), so you just have to pop it in the microwave and your dinner is practically ready. It's very difficult to find healthy instant meals, but i think i found the perfect solution for those lazy evenings.

Tomorrow is also my last day at my internship, it's a cliché but time really flies when you love what you do. After that i need to work my butt of for my thesis, so i think i will definitely need more of those pre steamed rice, haha :)

Casual weekend

Hey guys! I recently teamed up with Terre Bleue to present you some items from the new flashcollection of this summer. There are some pretty classic pieces that will never go out of style, but also some pieces that are perfect if you want to go to the beach or a festival. Here's a first look where i'm wearing a top and pants from their new collection. I made the classic look a bit tougher by adding a leather jacket and platform shoes. The flashcollection of Terre Bleue will be in stores as of April 11th. 

Hope you're having a great weekend so far! I'm currently in Paris now for a shoppingtrip with the boyfriend, i'll keep you posted! :) xx

Spring make-up inspiration

We had such a sunny day today over here, finally some decent spring weather! That inspired me to make a post about spring make-up, which really is my favourite kind of make-up. It's all about fresh, pastelly and dewy looks. Personally i think the three basics for a spring look are highlighter, light pink blush, nude or pink lipstick and just mascara on the eyes. I think i'm going to recreate the bottom left look from the first square. Lipgloss is something i never wear, but i really like it in this look! Which one is your favourite? xx Annelies
