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 …

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 – …

Jeans & rolled up sleeves

On the first weekend of spring break, big plus when working in education, my mom and I went to a catshow in Li√®ge. Of course I couldn’t leave without taking some pics at the raleway station. It’s one of the most beautiful stations I’ve ever seen and still has the power to amaze me whenever I see it again. It’s on of those buildings you just can’t stop looking at – especially when to sun comes out to play. One of my fave outfits on sunny days is a simple jeans and a white blouse. You can’t go wrong with that. The rolled up sleeves and tucked in blouse really makes the total look different, more relaxed. I’ve also put some scenery photo’s in this post, because well.. just see for yourself. Het eerste weekend van de paasvakantie, een groot pluspunt van werken in het onderwijs, gingen mijn ma en ik naar een kattenshow in Luik. Degene die me op Instagram volgen, hebben dit al gezien in mijn stories. Natuurlijk kon ik Luik niet verlaten …

Current beauty faves

Here are some of my favorite beauty products of the moment! 1.¬†L’Or√©al Super liner perfect slim.¬†The only eyeliner which makes it possible to achieve a winged eyeliner.. well, most of the time. Anyway, this has become my new best friend. 2.¬†Mac Satin Twig Lipstick.¬†My favorite lipstick atm, the colour is perfect for this in-between season. 3. Maybelline Vivid Matt Liquid.¬†With this one I have some kind of love-hate relationship, but once I get used to the liquid on my lips – such a strange feeling – I know I’ll love this one forever. 4.¬†Essie Marshallow en Bordeaux nail polish. When I’m choosing a colour for my nails, I’ll always go for one of these. They stay perfect for days and go with every occasion. 5. Maybelline Nude Eyeshadow Palette. Eyeshadow in combination with my contact lenses is a no-go, but when wearing my glasses I will¬†reach for this palette much quicker. The colours suit me and I don’t really need much more than these. 6.¬†Yves Rocher Foundation Kwast. I used to apply my foundation with …

Black with a pop of red⎪www.labrunette.be

Black with a pop of red

Sometimes you just feel like wearing black. I’m not talking about one black item, but a full on outfit. Like the one I’m wearing in this post. I decided to add a pop of red to bring just of bit of colour in it. But even without the red, I could wear this outfit every single day, especially when it’s winter or when the weather isn’t all that great. The day we shot this look, it was very cloudy and most of all, very windy. Two words: perfect setting. I haven’t always been a sucker for black though. This is actually just a recent thing. Even I find¬†it hard to believe, but in my early teens all I wore was colour. Seriously, I can’t even remember one item that was black. But hey, fashion wasn’t the same back then.. so I get a pass. At this point I’m very happy that I’ve finally found my style which I like to call: laid back minimal with a hint of whatever-mood-I’m-into-today because let’s be honest. Depending on …
