Wishlist: fall feelings

Since a couple of days ago, fall has officially swooped in with crisp mornings, golden foliage and casseroles all day errrday. I'm a summer girl at heart and I'd be happy if I could live in sundresses and sandals forever, but let's be honest: fall fashion is generally the most exciting, and autumn is the best time to get creative. Obviously I have my eye on a bunch of stuff (rainbow striped sweaters! puffer coats! corduroy trousers!), and I always love rounding up some cute and affordable Shein options for a little wardrobe refreshment, so here are some outfit collages I made this weekend. Does anyone remember polyvore? That shit used to be all the rage, man.

Some obvious slight Halloween/witchy/goth/Wednesday Addams vibes here. I'm seeing these ruffle sleeve striped sweaters/shirts everywhere, and I think it's such a cute look. I'm seriously contemplating ordering that star printed mesh top, imagine how cute it would look under a sleeveless dress or a pinafore! And obviously, lace up thigh highs are epic in every possible way.

This collage is a little more retro/60s/boho inspired, which is my favourite look year-round. I'm super into all the pearl detailed shoes everywhere inspired by Gucci (wish I could afford the real thing). I've been eyeing this Los Angeles 1960 sweater for over a month now, it's just a matter of time before I click it home. And I don't know if I'd be brave enough to wear this fringe jacket, but I SO admire anyone who is boss enough to rock it.

You see anything you like? :-)

This dress was love at first sight for me. Dark dresses with pale polkadots have had a place in my heart ever since I fell in love with Gwen Stefani's look in the Don't Speak video. Not that her look has ever been off point (inverse of on point lulz), but that particular look just really strongly vibed with me, and demure polkadotted dresses have become the epitomy of femininity in my mind ever since. I also really like the silhouette, with the peplum/drop waist effect and the figure hugging cut. 

I wasn't sure how to style the dress though, I didn't want to go too goth but the combination with the loafers called out to me. Adding the sheer polkadotted socks was the perfect way to give the look a bit of a playful edge. Never would have thought I'd be so into a loafer + sock look, I used to associate the combo way too strongly with Michael Jackson. I love it now though!

Hope you like the look too ;-)

Travel: California Diaries - San Francisco pt. 2

Travel: California Diaries - San Francisco pt. 2 Mission District

I'm back with my second post on our time in San Francisco earlier this year! I had so many shots to share that I decided to break up the content in three blogposts, so enjoy ;-)

This post will cover our time exploring Mission District and the Castro area. I took a billion pictures obviously, but since I didn't feel like lugging my heavy camera around all these shots are phone pics, sorry!

We started our second full day in San Francisco determined to cover most of the city's remaining tourist attractions, after visiting Bernal Heights park, the Golden Gate bridge, Chinatown and the Financial District the day before. We set out on foot after grabbing some food at the local supermarket, no time for full breakfast!

I still had this outfit sitting in my folders, and it's way too cute to not post it just because Belgium has decided to get an early start on fall. Let's just dream of a gorgeous Indian Summer that would allow us to wear sandals and crop tops a little while longer, right?

This crop top was a favourite of mine past summer. I had been looking for something exactly like this for months before I finally found this one, ultra cheap at Forever21. I mean, F21 gets flack for being a little tacky and "young" at times, but I always love how the store manages to offer just what you're looking for. A wide range of easy, cute, trendy stuff: how can you not dig that?

The shoes are the focal point here, though. I never knew how much I needed pink glitter sandals in my life until I spotted these babies at Sacha. OK I did obviously, pink + glitter is everything I love. I also really love a mid height block heel because you know I have zero tolerance for super high heels. These sandals are still available in silver and black, and the pink has been going in and out of stock for a while so I'm pretty sure they'll pop up again if you keep an eye out.

Here's to shoes that make your heart skip a beat!
