For the past few weeks, it’s been super duper hot. It’s been so hot that it has been barely bearable. You know when the temperature is so high that you have absolutely zero energy? There is no fresh air, even at night, so you don’t get any sleep? And you wake up exhausted? But you still have to get up and go to work? That’s been my routine for a month.
Another tough part is: how to dress? Because all you want to do is laying down by a pool or on the beach in a bikini. But you can’t. If you want to be able to do that, you gotta go to work (as Britney would say: You want to live fancy? You better work bitch). And unless you work as a lifeguard – which I’m not – you have to dress appropriately. Now let’s see what we can do 🙂
You can play with the colours, the prints and the length: pencil skirts, a-line skirts, midi skirts and mini skirts. Pair your skirt with a button-down shirt and you’re good to go. If we don’t wear our skirts when it’s 100 degrees out, I don’t know when we will.
Winter is coming here. Unfortunately, most of us can’t work from home; which means we have to get our asses off the bed, get dressed, and above all, we have to dress work appropriately. This can be a huge undertaking when it’s 0°C outside and when it’s dark when you get out the door. You know what I’m saying?
But just because it’s dark, and cold, and raining, and realllllyyyy difficult to be a responsible adult (ugh!), it doesn’t mean we have to go through all that unstylish. Right? So here are some looks that you can get some inspiration from for the next 2 months of winter – probably 3 if you’re Belgian 😉
Trench coat and pant suit
Nothing revolutionary, but boy it’s pretty! And classy. And empowering. I don’t know why, but anytime I wear a trench (or a long) coat I feel way more confident. Don’t get me started on the pant suit… And if you want to protect yourself from the cold, the coat will definitely do the trick.
How are you? Did you have a great Christmas? I hope so. I did, I spent Christmas and Christmas eve with my family. I ate too much. Both days. I don’t care. That’s what life is all about people 🙂
So, we already covered the holidays outfit, now let’s see what we can do with our pretty faces 🙂 I collected several ideas from great beauty bloggers (Nikkie Tutorials, Rachel Leary, Chloe Morello and Laura Lee), and from my favorite beauty brands. I’m sure you can find something you love, whether you’re going for a dramatic look or a more subtle one.
The holiday sweater. No piece of clothing has ever sparked so much love and horror at the same time. At least, between November and January. If you type these two magic words into Google, you get a variety of images; ranging from cute to fugly, and including dorky and funny ones. (Seriously, you have to try it!)
Why so much interest? One of my favorite things in the fall, and I think it’s the same for a lot of you girls, is that I get to wear all my cosy, comfy, warm knitted sweaters. Pure happiness. The holiday sweater is all that and more! It’s the same, but during the holidays. In other words, it’s happiness²… ❤
