Last week, the Tony Awards took place in New York and if I’m not doing a Best Dressed post, I know that my sister will be pretty mad at me (she is a huge fan of musicals and was quite happy with the Tony for best performance by an actor – she was rooting for the charming Andrew Garfield). So here we go!
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.
So on Monday, the Met Gala happened. For A-listers, this is the place-to-be. For us, mere mortals, it is the opportunity to appreciate really extravagant fashion. This year’s theme? Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons. Rei Kawakubo is a Japanese avant-garde designer. So this promises us a bunch of interesting looks.
As you can imagine, I was really excited to discover the looks worn by the rich and famous on Tuesday morning 🙂
