The ultimate black blazer

The black blazer is a crucial piece in your wardrobe. You can style it any way you want and it’s appropriate for any occasion. I do know however how though it can be to find the exact right one. It took me over two years – I kid you not – to find the ultimate blazer. There was always something wrong with it, but this one from Zara seems to be just what I was looking for. The combination of a blue jeans with anything black¬†always never appealed to me. I always thought it looked so weird, even though I saw some many amazing examples. Thankfully I was in a big whatever-mood and that’s how I put together this outfit. I do love this outfit, even though I might not wear it that often. Easy guess that I would often wear this blazer with black trousers – I mean.. I love wearing black! ūüėÄ I’ll definitely show you that look later, but first tell me what you think of this look. Do you like it …

3 ways to style an oversized shirt dress

An oversized shirt dress.. some might love it, others might hate it. I’m a little late to the party as my bestie already got something similar last year. I loved it and finally got the guts to get one too. The fabric of this & Other Stories dress is incredible soft – yet it can wrinkle fairly quick. Still, I haven’t regret this purchase any second as it’s a super diverse piece. You¬†can wear it just the way you feel at that moment. Today I wanted to show you 3 ways you can style the oversized shirt dress. I especially love the first look ūüėČ Een oversized shirt dress.. sommige zijn er dol op, andere vinden het maar niets. Ik ben deze trend iets minder snel gevolgd. Mijn bestie kocht vorig jaar een gelijkaardige jurk en ik heb eindelijk de moed gevonden om ook een shirt dress te kopen. De stof van deze jurk van & Other Stories is zo zacht – maar het kan wel zeer snel kreuken. Je voelt je enorm gemakkelijk in …

Going out with sensational lashes

You all know how I love watching youtube vids. One of my faves is – who else – Zoella. If I have to be completely honest, I love her vlogging channel ever more. I don’t know why I love watching other people live their life.. or maybe I do. Well, anyway. I always keep an eye on the products she uses because they can vary a lot. Recently she uploaded an ad on Instagram about the Maybelline Sensational Lash mascara. Well, I couldn’t help myself and get the mascara asap – I mean,¬†look at this pic¬†(!) -.. and I’m glad I did. It was super weird to put in on the first times, because the brush is so different.¬†But at the end, I got the handle on it and we’ve become best friends since. I love the way you can basically choose how much of the mascara you want to apply. The inner side makes it look very thick, while the outer side really opens your lashes. You can find them at your local drugstore, …

The perfect raincoat⎪www.labrunette.be

The perfect raincoat

A few weeks ago¬†I was strolling around in Zara when suddenly my eye fell on this perfect fit, perfect coloured raincoat. Pricetag? A small 50 euros. It doesn’t surprise you I bought it a few days later. Having a good raincoat is¬†essential¬†when living in Belgium. I mean.. it does rain quite a lot. Not as much as in England I’m sure, but still.. too much. This raincoat is available in four colours (beige, taupe, pink and navy). I decided to go for the last one because for two simple reasons: I¬†absolutely¬†love navy and because I had seen all the other colours¬†on a few pupils at the school I work. Kinda obvs I didn’t go for any of those colours. Didn’t spot the navy one yet! I decided to pair it with white trousers and sneakers, just to make it pop a bit more. But to be honest, black and even blue works just as good. Oh, and I can even wear my Acne cardigan beneath it, so that makes me love this raincoat even more! …

Heeled leather sandals

Almost two weeks ago & Other Stories finally openend their store near my hometown. I went to take a look at the first opening day and I loved it. They had so many gorgous items in the store – and even some stationary! Too bad they didn’t have any room left for the lingerie section. They did however have room foor the most prettiest shoes, including these heeled leather sandals. I’ve been craving some classic black heels for a while now, but to be honest? Those are way to high to be comfortable. So of course when my eye fell on these sandals I just had to fit them.. and eventually buy them. No regrets whatsoever. I love the fact they look kinda high-ish, but aren’t really. The actually are really comfortable. This is the perfect kind of heel to go to work with! Bijna twee weken geleden opende & Other Stories eindelijk een winkel in mijn omgeving. Op de eerste openingsdag ging ik al een kijkje nemen. De winkel ziet er prachtig uit – …
