We Wish: Merry Christmas

This peach is wishing you a merry, merry Christmas! 

We wish you happy holidays and may all your wishes for the upcoming year come true. I myself will be gliding down some mountains around that time of year, so I won't be around to extend those wishes myself then. 

Chase your dreams, prosper, laugh and do something good for somebody else everyday!

We Wear: Hassle in Hasselt

Finally! Some decent outfit pictures for you guys. I'm wearing an outfit that is my current favorite. So I will be wearing this until I'm dead tired of every single piece involved. My Christmas outfit even resembles this outfit. You've all seen me wear this hat, jacket and boots on multiple occasions already. This time I paired them with my new shorts from My Mum Made It, new polkadot panties by Zalando and new sparkly green top by Paplou. Love at first sight I tell you.

We went to Hasselt on Saturday to eat a bagel at Eve and Molly's (BEST bagels in town, I swear), made a very quick stroll through Winterland (I really wanted some gl├╝hwein) and bought a present for a baby visit the next day. And while you think this all happened in peace and quiet, you are wrong. Hasselt couldn't have been more crowded! So after the present we quickly escaped all the hassle with a well deserved coffee at King Kong Coffee. We ended up staying there for two hours and then went to Maasmechelen to see The Hourglass Instinct play an awesome set at a local gig.

A weekend well spent!

We Love: Wander & Co

Santa came early this year, or at least that's how I felt when receiving a package I had ordered only a few days before. After witnessing the Belgium based web shop Wander & Co come on by on Instagram and understanding the philosophy behind the shop, I was intrigued. My interest was even further sparked by the multiple references to wandering - the motto of the shop is not for nothing 'The mind likes to travel'. The fact that the products are pretty pretty pretty and obviously meticulously picked by the shop owner, persuaded me in purchasing some last minute Christmas picks. And boy oh boy, am I happy with them! Also, I love love love the personal touches, it gives it just that little bit extra. 

Take a look inside the package with me and do check the web shop for yourself. I assure you, you will fall in love.

We Wear: Jolly jumper

With T-minus a week for Christmas to arrive, my holiday spirits are going in overdrive. Visiting numerous Christmas markets (Cologne, in a cave in Valkenburg, my beloved Leuven...), buying the prettiest ornaments in the history of mankind, putting up the Christmas tree and in one smooth sweep adding so many other decorations you may fancy yourself in good ol' Santa's house himself, is all part of the deal for people in my surroundings. Sorry not sorry. 

However, finding the perfect outfit for the numerous celebrations can be a hassle in these busy times, but an important aspect nevertheless. Granted, not nearly as important as family, love and .... well, presents (Guilty as charged: I love both giving and receiving gifts). Still, I have to admit that I love dressing up and view it is an inherent part of Christmas - on approximately the same level as adding cinnamon on everything and everywhere. 

This time I wanted to try something a little different: a celebratory outfit with a serious comfortable nod. Do you think I succeeded in this party/comfy mix? 


   Currently listening to:
Christmas carols, obviously
Currently craving for (fashion wise or other):
Submerging myself in Netflix and bed.

We Wear: I'm so over these pants.

Jacket : H&M - Sweater : Urban Outfitters - Pants : New Look - Shoes: Vans - Scarf: Zara

You all probably know what I'm talking about: an item you once loved and wore multiple times now becomes something you hate. I'm having this love-hate relationship with these pants I once used to love so thoroughly. Cherry on the cake: I wore this outfit for three days in a row. Two concert nights (Taking Back Sunday, oh my God!) and a random Sunday and now I never want to see these pants again. Mark my words! It was also freezing while taking these photos so that explains the poor quantity.

We Wear: Paplou & Louche

After playing 'model' for a day with Hasselt based store Paplou a while back, I became an instant fan of their cutest of cute and edgy as rockers on speed clothes and accessories. Naturally, I had to return to take this treasure home with me: a lovely floral high waisted pencil skirt that flattered my body in ways other pieces of clothing never come to reach. I always had a predilection for high waisted pencil skirts and I absolutely adore the whole pin up vibe they carry, although I never feel quite comfortable in them, which most certainly has to do with specific bodily issues that no one else notices except me myself. Ladies, I know you're feeling me. 

Skirt: Louche (Paplou) - Biker jacket, hat: H&M - Choker: Claire's - Brogues: Van Dalen


 Anyway, that all changed - well, almost - when I slipped into this beauty. This skirt must be magical as it makes me feel like a real classy lady, a look that definitely will not unbecoming for the fast approaching holidays. Yes, indeed, the time has come to dress up once again (bring on the sequins), start gift wrapping, bake gingerbread men and decorate the Christmas tree, which will be my main activities for the next month. Expect some holiday outfit inspiration in the next few weeks! 

Are you also looking forward to Christmas? And what is your go to outfit for the holidays?

   Currently listening to:
Taking Back Sunday (yay, I will get to see them on Saturday)
Currently craving for (fashion wise or other):
A sequined dress, thankyouverymuch.
