Speaking of childhood memories, these pictures right here are probably what I dreamed about being a kid, desperately wanting to go to ballet class merely for the tutu. The circle appears to be round.

Well, another blog post of mine has been long overdue. Remember last time I talked about leaving for my holiday to Seville? The holiday in itself was awesome, hanging out all day in good company (my sisters! my mom!) and with sunshine on our faces. I'll get into that soon enough as I've got a few blog posts lined up with some summer and city trip proof outfits! Everything is a bit delayed at the moment because my grandpa died just after we got back from our trip. It's been hectic and sad times, but I hope everything will now slowly fall back to its place, to have a little bit of room to breathe again. I'm just so thankful for all the great childhood and not-so-childhood memories we got to share.

T-shirt: H&M (old)
Skinny jeans: H&M (old)
Sneakers: Tango via La Bottega
Duffle bag: New Look via Zalando
No, I'm not writing a blog post about actual sweat pants. But as it was a million degrees when shooting this outfit, this title is appropriate. Belgian weather really is a challenge and it makes it really hard to dress accordingly. We've had an abundance of rain the past weeks, with flooded villages and closed down streets, with temperatures more applicable for fall. Followed by a sunny Sunday where we had to seek shelter in the shade and eat some icecream to actually cool down. We decided to grab some wine at the Wijnfeesten near the the beautiful castle of Duras. I chose a rather casual outfit but these skinny jeans really were to hot and my white sneakers got all muddy because the territory around the castle was still pretty soggy from all the rain. I saw women in dresses and heels fighting the mud and others in rain boots fighting the heat. I'm not sure which was the best option. It's this Belgian weather that just keeps you guessing.
I also cut my hair short and dyed it sort of purple. I'm over the high maintenance that goes along with blonde / platinum hair and all that bleach hasn't been really nice for my long locks. I can't wait to have a long pony tail again though...
The issue with the not so crisp pictures has not yet been resolved as you may have noticed... I bought a new lens (Sigma Art 35mm 1.4) and everytime I export these pictures in Lightroom like I do my others, the quality and sharpness disappears. When I don't resize them they are ok but when I upload them and let blogger resize them via picture size the same thing happens. Anyone any idea?

You may remember this sweater from one of the previous blog posts when we talked about SKM upping their game and a few months later, it is still one of my go to items. Casually with a pants or more preppy with a skirt and brogues, anything's possible with this beauty by Zoe Karssen! I really want to say I will take it with me on my holiday - which I will be leaving for TOMORROW - but let's get real, Seville with its 33° C begs for crop tops and mini skirts more than for a sweater. Sorry not sorry!
That being said, if you have ANY tips on what to visit, do, eat, hang out or drink in Seville, do share! I will be there for 5 heavenly days, together with my mom and sisters and I am more than looking forward to it. Hell, I even packed my bag already days in advance, which is very out of character for me. Seville, here I come!
