Outfit of the day : My Zalando shopping spree

10 Jul

Dear readers,

It’s been pretty quiet at FlemishFashionFreaks’ headquarters recently shopping-wise, as I am still looking for a new job, which implies trying not to go crazy in the shopping department for the last 6 months (quite a challenge as you can surely imagine).

But as sales were fastly approaching, I decided to give in to the urge just for once and visit Zalando for some online madness… And mad it was! So many different brands means many MANY hours spent behind this very computer to decide which outfit I wanted to promote to my absolute favorite summer outfit.

I instantly fell in love with a beautiful Grecian-inspired chiffon dress (shop here) from the brand Louche which was a novelty to me. Keeping an eye on the brand in the future as they had many fashionable items to my liking.

Next I searched for a cool pair of sandals to match the dress… Luckily for me (and my big shoe size 42) Zalando has many available options for us ‘plus sized’ girls. My heart skipped a beat when I found this floral pair of Anna Field sandals with white and green tones (find them via this link). They fit perfectly and are a dream to walk on… That’s why I decided to post-order the same item in blue so I can change accordingly to my outfit of the day.

I’m not a big fan of jewellry as I’m always getting stuck to everything with them (can you believe I never even had my ears pierced for this exact reason?!) but every now and then I like to brighten up a simple dress or top with a cool statement necklace, often with a referral to animals.  The leopard necklace from Me& Zena fit the description perfectly and was a sure winner to complete my easy-going summer look.

Do you like my new summer outfit? What is your ideal outfit for the summer?

With love, Nona

Outfitpost- Purple Rain

22 May

I’ve been out driving around in my car today to get some more practice before taking my practical exam sometime this summer… This morning it was still very bright and sunny but during the long drive the sky kept getting darker by the minute.

Therefore my previous plan to make an outdoor outfit post on a special location went flying out the window and Iwas  obligated to take some quick outfit pictures in our garden before the fierce wind would turn into a rainshower. Luckily we have a beautiful tree that formed the perfect match for this mini-shoot.

I hope you like the outfit! As you can tell after a few outfit posts, I am quite the flower and colour addict dress-wise: in spring almost any bright print dress that falls just above the knee can qualify to make my heart skip a beat.

Luckily my dressing got fully loaded with these kinds of dresses and skirts during the last years, so I am good to go for this season, no need to shop more of these…. for now. A new blazer in a bright colour however…

Dress: Mango / Vest : Vero Moda /Purple fringed shoulder bag : Pieces /Wedges: Teva / Golden hairband: Accessorize/ Bracelets: Accessorize

I like the way the purple print dress floats in the air when there’s a light breeze: however, when I went to the gas station earlier todayI had to look out  with those fierce windblasts not to give acidental passers-by more than they bargained for as my dress kept flying all ways but those desired.

Embarrassing? Yes.  Lesson learned? Definitely!  Next time my boyfriend is filling up the tank and I stay put in the car. 😉

The purple fringed bag is really handy for multiple occasions, as you can wear it on the shoulder to go to a festival or remove the strap and wear it as a clutch to more formal occasions. The fringe trend is going strong again after all those years, so I decided to dig this baby up out of the far borders of my closet, where it has been neglected for the last year or so, poor little thing. Hooray for the revival of trends! Or at least SOME trends…

Hope you can spend this Sunday in the nicest way possible! After this post, I’m getting ready to start cooking up some fresh homemade lasagna for tonight, followed by some apple pastry, which is a new thing as I am not the dessert kind of girl normally… But for my sweet boyfriend only the best is good enough!

With love, Nona

Wednesday’s pressdays outfit

30 Apr

What a hectic week it has been, filled with the pressdays organisation, a nice bloggers meeting organized by Oona and several parties and fashion events.

After getting a bit of rest, I am finally ready to share some pics with you from the outfit I wore on Wednesday when I was hosting our own pressdays at Bestseller. After that I visited Oona for the Groupon bloggers meeting.

We had a very warm welcome from the entire Oona team, who tried their utter best to provide us with everything we needed, from news about cool new collections to a tasty buffet and nice cocktails & drinks. It was also very nice meeting so many bloggers I had not yet seen IRL.

There were some magnificent collections to discover from River Island, Essentiel, Forever 21 and more…

But for those pictures you’ll have to wait until tomorrow, when I’ll post my pressdays review with my favourite pieces. In the meanwhile, please enjoy the outfit pics!

Black blazer with padded shoulders: ONLY / Sheer print top : VILA / Green skinny trousers : H&M / Bracelets : Accessorize + Pieces / Wedges : TEVA

(The pics were taken after getting home from Oona, as you can tell by the lighting it was already pretty late)

My 10 month old cat Mira LOVES to be in the centre of attention, so she is also starring in these pics. She is my favourite little black accessory that goes with about everything (except white pants, hate the cathairs on those!)  😉

With love, Nona
