OUTFITPOST – Blue skies

20 May

Dear readers,

We are finally getting the temperatures and weather we have been longing for this weekend!

It was a perfect timing as we wanted to visit a local airshow to check out the SpittFire and other big roaring machines most men usually like… Mine is no exception to this! 😀

Me personally? I was just happy that it is finally time to take those poor neglected summer shoes out of the box again, yay !

By consequence it was also time to choose a nailpolish for my feet as they were about to feel the breeze again after waaaaaay too long. YSL Les Fauves came to the rescue! Just love it how the gold base nailpolish shimmers through the black texture coat on top of it… Pure magic! This YSL nailpolish is also an excellent combination with my black suede Pedro Garcia sandals with little gemstones, as the footbed is also in gold which enhances the textured black/gold effect.

Since I was not sure the weather would stay as good for the entire day, I opted for a ‘safe’ royal blue skinny jeans from ONLY, these babies have been mine already for more tha 4 years but they still do the trick!

The top with sparkly padded shoulders is from H&M ( the yellow leather bag is H&M too), the owl ecklace I scored at Mango. My blue studded belt is from Talking French at Maasmechelen Village. The printed scarf is from Pieces.

What are you wearing on this beautiful day?

With love, Nona

My shoplog of the week

2 May

Dear readers,

I’ve been a naughty girl shop-wise. Last week there was not one single day where I wasn’t spotted in one or more shops, eagerly putting my creditcard into the machine at the cash register.

To share the joy I experienced buying my items (and to hear that I didn’t went too far in my shopping madness from you too!), I decided to make a little shoplog.

The first splurge moment I experienced was last Thurday evening at the Naf Naf relaunch party at Rue Neuve in Brussels.

Almost all the Spring/Summer items were very on-trend (and at the same time on my wishlist), but I somehow managed to keep myself a bit under control with as a result: a cute white print top, a green knee skirt with pockets (practical), a pair of widefit shorts in an Africa-inspired print, a blue dress with gold collar and finally a turquoise belt.

On Sunday I was invited to Maasmechelen Outlet Village, where I started a quest for the perfect accessory. The final loot included 2 studded belts from Talking French, a gorgeous army green leather satchel from Fossil and the green print Talking French dress I also wore in my last outfitpost.

But, the shopping still continued on Monday during my lunchbreak from work. In my short break, i managed to get to F21 (green polkadot top), Mango (2 Tshirts) and Ici Paris XL ((perfume and nail polish).

Narciso Rodriguez has made a limited edition summer version of his iconic scent For Her, named For Her Délicate. I was already a loyal fan of this fragrance, but the new version is much better for summer, a little more subtle and fruity.

I also indulged in some nailpolish from YSL, called Manicure Couture Les Fauves, which consists of 2 shades (black and gold) you put on your nails together to get a shattered texture effect. I can’t wait to put this new technology on my nails as I have read much about it but very curious how it will look on my own hands.

The last beauty call was a refill for another perfume I adore: Chanel‘s Chance Eau Tendre. When the shop assistant from Ici Paris XL told me that Eau Tendre now exists in a handy travel spray package of 30ml, I didn’t hesitate, as it easily fits into my purse and I got two extra refill bottles. Perfume addict, anyone?

For the rest of the month, I’ll be keeping a low profile on the shopping market, my wallet needs some rest as it can take no more right now. Now it’s time to let all my new babies see the light of day as quickly as possible, they deserve some proper airtime!

New outfitposts with my new items will quickly follow, if the weather stays as good as it was today, at least!

With love, Nona

OUTFITPOST – MY PERFECT ACCESSORIES

1 May

Dear readers,

Maasmechelen Village invited me last week to come discover their new collections as they are currently organizing a special campaign , called Art of the Detail. You can read all about it in my previous post.

They asked me to look for my perfect accessory for this season and boy, it didn’t take me long to find it!

Actually (typically me), I opted for 2 accessories which can be worn perfectly together. At Fossil, I found this to-die-for green leather satchel, which is a style you never can go wrong with if you ask me. The army green colour can be combined with many pop colours and over the top prints, so I may count this baby as a good asset to my current wardrobe.

The other accessory which immediately stole my heart is a thin studded belt in tan leather from Talking French… I heart it so much that I decided to also buy the belt in blue… With those outlet prices, I didn’t even think twice about it.

To put the look together I decided I also needed a new dress to combine the accessories with (well, I didn’t really need it, you know, but when a girl is on a roll…). This new baby comes from Talking French aswell,  love the print and colour combo. Trans-seasonal dress : check!

I had some fun today with the boyfriend and went on our very first ‘location shoot’ (sounds fancy if you say it like that, better than I walked down the street to the tunnel, ha). Below you can see the result.

Jacket – Object C.I./ Dress – Talking French/ Belt – Talking French/ Leather bag – Fossil/ Sunglasses – adidas Originals Eyewear/ Boots – Sacha

The pearly nailpolish is from Rituals new ‘Urban Chic’ make-up range, I really love the way it sparkles in the sun! It is also very easy to apply and comes at a reasonable price, a win-win situation!

Do you like the new accessories? What is your must-have accessory this season?

With love, Nona
