We Wear: Pastel overload

Aahh, summertime and the living's easy. That's for sure the case when on a holiday in a beautiful city like Seville, Spain. And when it all comes together so nicely - when the houses and doors are a match made in heaven - the living just gets awesome. This skirt is such an old thing, but I keep it hanging in my closet since every year I reach for it at least a few times. This time I opted to edge up the style just a little by adding some bling and contrasting it with a black crop top. Sometimes you wanna be the sugarcoat cute girl, whereas on other occasions,  you wanna be a badass. And that, my dear friends, is a little thing called life. 

Our trip to Seville is already more than a month ago, but I still reminiscence about this stunning city. Definitely a recommendation if you're on the hunt for a city trip. I'm by the way so addicted: I just typed the previous sentence and with the word 'hunt', my mind strayed to lunch time at work aka Pokémon Go time! Yep, yours truly is also a fan, same as the rest of the world! 

PS: Those two cuties (or should I say weirdos) in the bottom pictures are my mom and my little sister.  Eternal love and sunshine for them. And with that very hippie-esque quote, I'm out.

We Wear: Heisenberg in water sandals

T-shirt: Asos // Denim button-up skirt: H&M // Water sandals: New Look (old) // Sunnies: Quay via La Bottega

Another quick outfit! We actually had some sun last Sunday (pun intended) which was the perfect opportunity to wear this denim button-up skirt bare-legged. I threw in a white t-shirt, my new Quay sunnies and my beloved water sandals and I was good to go.  

I bought this t-shirt while I was binge-watching Breaking Bad last year and it has finally made its way to the blog. The weird print makes the simple combination of denim and white t-shirt less boring and obvious. The water sandals were an impulse buy gone terribly good two years ago. I bought them for Rock Herk because they forecasted a million degrees and I didn't have any proper shoes to deal with that. I actually feared these water sandals would ruin my feet but they turned out to be the most easy breezy footwear in my possession. This is the third summer I'm wearing them and they did break in two places (where the shoe bends while walking) but I'm not planning on getting rid of them yet! I have no idea why they didn't make it to the blog any sooner. 

Speaking of Rock Herk: it's almost that time of the year again! This weekend the centre of Herk-de-Stad will be filled with good music, cold beer and fun people and yours truly has been promoted to in-house photographer this year! #happydance So come say hi and I'll snap your picture! If I'm not too busy catching Pokémon.

We Wear: Kiss the boys and make them cry

Sweater: Zoe Karssen via La Bottega - Skinnies: Cheap Monday - Sneakers: Tango via La Bottega - 
Duffle bag: New Look via Zalando

Karolien isn't alone anymore as a proud owner of a Zoe Karssen sweatshirt. I jumped on that bandwagon as soon as it got discounted at La Bottega. The perks of working in a shoe / clothing store. The downside of working in a shoe / clothing store?! I photograph all of the new pieces for our webshop so I have a unique preview of what will be in store. And how much it may hurt my wallet. 

Anyway, I wore this outfit to attend a secret warm up GOOSE show at Café Café in Hasselt. Yeah, GOOSE! They played mainstage Werchter last Saturday and did a sort of try out in our local café and however I'm probably not the biggest fan around - and not even a fan of the genre in particular - it was one of the best things I have seen lately. The room literally EXPLODED with their very first tunes. I was blown away and in awe and I couldn't stop thinking we all were writing a little piece of Belpop history.
