So first I want to apologise this weeks’ blogpost is so late. I was very busy last month because I had finals but I hope you still enjoy this post!
Last month I went to Antwerp here in Belgium with a friend. This city is the best you can find if you want to shop some original clothing. The city has a lot of stores and unique shops you really want to discover. This time I went to ‘Meir’, which has more mainstream stores. Come and join me on my trip through Antwerp!
The first store I went in was “Six”. Six is a store with a sort of accesories for a reasonable price. There are necklaces, earrings, handbags, scarfs and al sort of things like that. I was in need of a new pair of sunglasses for my collection. I was looking for something more original than the classic black one. I already have one like that and I want to change up my summerlook.
I got this sunglasses for €9.95 at the sixstore in Antwerp. It is a black model with gold studs on the top of the sunglasses.
I like it because it helps the sunglasses to corporate with your head. It gives a tidy feel to your look. It isn’t just a pair of plain sunglasses and that’s why I liked it.
The next accesory I got was a necklace. I bought in the store I Am. It is a store comparable with Six but it has another collection. The necklace has a gold closing, and reddish or pink flowers on it. I wanted a red or pink necklace for a long time because it is very beautiful with black or just plain clothes. It gives a simple outfit a unique touch.
I splurged a lot on clothes this time! The first thing I got was a dark green jacket. It is kind of a military jacket but I really like this style. I saw a lot of comparable jackets in store so I made the decision to buy one myself. The one I got is from Mango for 69.99 euros. I really like it. It has a small zipper and a cord. I think it is a very universal piece of clothing. You can wear it with a ton of outfits, which I really like. It isn’t a very thick veste, but in spring it doesn’t get that cold anymore so I think I can get a lot of use out of it.
The next thing I got was a white flowy top with camel-colored accents on it. I really like wearing this kind of tops, especially for going out. You can dress it up, or down. You can do a lot of things with it and that’s what I really like about it. This one is from Zara.
The third item I bought is this black crop top with six daisy flowers on it. In summer, I really like to wear crop tops with a pair of shorts, especially if you have a nice tan. This one I got a size larger than I would normally buy, because with crop tops I do not like it when it shows my belly too much. I got it at The Sting.
The next store I visited was a store I wouldn’t normally go to. I went to L&L, here in Belgium a very well-known store. I went there because I needed something for a family-member. I also found something for myself. This flowy green dress with a nice belt would make a great summerdress for me. I think it’s a very comfortable dress to wear, but it’s also a bit more dressy. To me this green colour is very unique, I have never owned something like this colour before. I am very happy with this purchase.
Next store is Pimkie. Here, I got two things. First up is this coral top. I really like the soft colour, it is a classic summertop, but I was in need for a top like this. It has a small message on it which makes it a nice top for me.
Together with the top I got some matching pair of shorts.
I was looking for some shorts in a light wash jeans colour. Here I found those for a very reasonable price.
The shorts are bleached because at some spots you can see the dark blue peaking through. That’ what makes it a unique pair of shorts to me. It is a basic piece of clothing you really need in summer especially for going to the summerfestivals. I was very happy when I got this one!
The last clothing item I got is from H&M. It is a bit hard to explain the style of the top because it is a very unique style. It is a black and white tank top and at the bottom it has some black detailing. It has a bit of that crop top feeling. I like this kind of tops because they make a great piece for going out. The pattern is a bit indie or bohemian inspired. Paired with some light jeans it would make a great match!
Because every girl loves to buy makeup, right?
I only got two makeup-items this time. I bought them at Kruidvat. This is a Dutch store which is very popular in Belgium. We call it a “drogisterij’ or a drugstore in English. The first item I got is this lipstick by Essence in the colour Natural Beauty. I was looking for a pink nude which you can wear on a daily basis. This one just came on time and I am very satisfied on how it’s looking!
The next thing is something special. Maybelline came out with their new Terre Indienne BB Cream. I am very curious to try this out. It is supposed to even out your skin and give it a universal summerglow. Especcially the last part of the description spoke to me. I am someone who likes to be tan in summer so this product could be an additional product to my routine!
Since there has passed a lot of time since I got those items, some of them I got a bit later because yeah, shopping addiction going on here ;-).
This bikini is also one of the items that I got a bit later than the other items. I really wanted a Triangl-styled bikini so I was on the hunt for one. Since I have a slight (read: massive) bikini-addication, I am very picky about choosing them. In store I never found one I liked, so I decided to buy one online. On the site the new collection just came out. I decided to buy one from the new collection. The one that I got is orange on top and at the bottom some white patches and of course, the typical Triangle black linings. The bottompiece of the bikini is just a coral colour. The name of the bikini I got is Bambi – Candy Sunset.
Despite the very long silence on my blog, I hope you still liked to read this post! Watch out for some new stuff coming soon!
