Tassel sandals, maxi dress

The tiny studs on these sandals are a fun spin on the traditional patent leather and tassels combination. Wore them with a maxi dress with a beautiful spider net in silver thread on it for yet another element of edginess to a simple outfit.

20 km of Brussels

Like so many other bruxellois this morning, I put on my sneakers and headed to the Cinquantenaire Park for the start of the annual race, the 20km of Brussels. Before you get all cheery and supportive, I should specify I was part of the watching crowd. I wish I were braver and trained harder and of course I made a resolution to enter the competition next year.

Anyway, I felt pretty sporty in my casual outfit today, my fashion tribute to the race:

Dress / COS
Sneakers / Nike Free Run 3.0

Summer shorts

There is no such thing as too many shorts for the hot Bucharest summer.

Cotton shorts / H&M

Colored jeans

It took me some fitting room time to realise that red jeans don’t really suit me – 9 pairs exactly ;-)

Wearing heels again to work

This was actually intended to be a post about high-heels and the photo was supposed to illustrate the topic (it doesn’t). I wore heels again to work the other day (when I was wearing this outfit) and I was just thinking: wow, I’ve been wearing flats for so long that when I slip into a high heel now, I can feel the transformation. I walk a little taller, I feel the surge of confidence and they’re just plain empowering – in a fun way ;-)

Simple fine-knit jumper / COS
Silk black trousers / COS
Ankle boots / COS

Flat metallic sandals. Yes.

Guess I know where I’ll be on 8 March a.m.

Flat sandals / Marni for H&M

Heart T-shirt, be mine

I’m thinking that -15° is the perfect temperature to stay at home and day dream about my summer wardrobe. Lovin’ the colourful summer collection of the Belgian brand Essentiel. That heart T-shirt is so mine!
