Another week is over and is passed. Unfortunately my holiday was over so university started again. I have to admit I took it a little slow the first week and didn’t really study a lot but hey, it is only the first week (and that short holiday we had was not a lot!).
If I am completely honest, I am planning to really get back on track and try to study a hell of a lot again because I realized Miss Supranational and studies of medicine wasn’t exactly the perfect combination…
Anyway, I still don’t regret the choices that I have made, although I am now a little bit in a dilemma if I actually also have the time for a blog. But I just love to write and be able to express myself and my personality so I hope that with a little bit good planning I will be able to combine the two with succes!
I actually planned to make a complete FASHION post about a lot of late winter outfits I have worn but unfortunately it is not always easy to have a photographer (read: boyfriend) all the time with you with a DSLR camera (and no, a phone is really not an option for a blog :p). Luckily I could make a few pictures of two outfits, but the next ones you will have to wait until next week. 😉
First outfit is a typical outfit I would wear to university (even though I haven’t been a lot there last week because of some distance problems). It is nothing overdone but still very stylish and fashionable in my opinion. I am still in love with these overknee boots, I would wear them everyday! I prefer lighter colours over darker colours in outfits, I just think I look more flattering in lighter colours, if that makes sense? Oh and a striped sweater is really a classic item in every closet!
Sweater: Massimo Dutti
Bag: my all the time favourite Liu Jo
Jeans: Hollister co
Scarf: bought in an accessoires shop I don’t know the brand of, oops…
This is a not so conventional outfit for me but I had this skirt (which might be a little small) already laying for 3 years in my closet and I wanted to make use of that. Next to that I also got inspired by some old Gossip Girl pictures with a checked skirt like this and I just tried a few combinations and I really like this! The golden statement necklace completes the outfit and gives it a more interesting look. And yes again, there are these overknee boots again. 😉
All the other pieces already have been mentioned and the necklace I don’t remember.
I also had a photoshoot this saturday in the luxury boutique hotel ‘Le Chatelain’ close to Louiza in Brussels. I got to wear some gorgeous dresses of ‘Les Chateleines’ (not a coincidence, a very nice evening dresses shop/rental at a few hundred metres close to the hotel). There are some neighbourhoods and environments in Brussels that are really not cozy but the region ‘Kastelein’/’Chatelein’ is really one of my favourite places in Brussels!
I will make a blogpost in a few weeks about some hotspots in Brussels since I live in that city, so stay tuned for that. 😉 Here a little sneakpeek of yesterday’s photoshooting (if you want to see more pics, I will redirect you to my IG @kimdetollenaere where I will post more):
Wooow! This gown is so beautiful, I felt like an absolute princess. Unfortunately you can’t wear these kind of dresses frequently. 😉
Oh, and recently I got quite interested into skincare. I really realized how important it is to take good care of your skin especially since I always struggled with unclear skin. Like I said in a previous post: I am also going to make a few blogposts with video about my skincare routine and some tips, but that is also for later.
I already tried out a nice organic mud mask from Crystal Clean, a new American skincare brand. (online shop: www.crystalcleanskincare.com)
The mask contains bentonite clay and activated charcoal and removes dirt, oil, blackheads and other impurities from the skin. It is powder that you have to mix with a spoon of water and then you put it on your face and leave it on for 10 minutes. It really got hard quite fast but when I removed it with warm water, I felt like my skin was reborn. I would really suggest using such masks more often!
Me with the mud mask on, quite funny to see. The mask looks a little spotted but that is because certain parts already dried while others didn’t. 😉 (the top I am wearing I got from Hollister)
And last but not least, I also booked a very very exciting holiday that will soon come. Already a good tip: I will be able to make some nice summer outfit posts about it. 😉
