Spring favorites

I skipped the (almost) obligated Valentines day post yesterday. I didn’t do anything romantic anyway, so you missed nothing! I spent the day alone in my study trying to figure out how those 4 big books about our Belgian social security system should be used. I also tried to find a place to stock siad books, but no luck on that. They’re on the floor as you read this. These books came in a big, heavy box and so I wasn’t able to go visit the boyfriend at his college yesterday. We’ll see each other agian this weekend though, yay!

Peplum. How cute is this H&M top? It’s avalaible in almost every colour of the rainbow! Paired with a pencil skirt they create that pretty peplum shape.

No. 2 pencil skirt in double-serge cotton

Pencilskirts. I want them in every colour! I am currenlty obsessing over this pretty (expensive) purple one from Jcrew. Does anyone know where I could find some cheaper ones?

Easy dresses. This grey mango dress is on top of my wishlist. Easy, comfy, soft material. Perfect for when I don’t know what to wear this summer. And this grey colour would  go so well with neon accessoiries!

Toms. These lace Toms don’t look comfortable at all, but those mint ones will be mine!

  • Die schoentjes wil ik ook wel! Volgens mij zullen ze wel comfortabel zijn, of toch comfortabel genoeg ;).

  • Haha, sounds like you had a fun Valentine's Day 😉 I love that top with the pencil skirt! I definitely want to try that shape this spring.

  • Definitely loving that peplum top – especially since it's polka dotted 🙂

  • I really REALLY want that yellow skirt. I'm not even gonna bother heading over to jcrew.com to look at them though cause I'll shed a small tear when I see the price. So I'll just dream about it instead.


  • You have pictures incredibly lovely items. I am becoming that I must own a pair Toms after seeing so many pretty pairs online lately.

  • Agreed, I'm all over peplum and pencil skirts this spring! Can't wait until it warms up and we no longer have to wear tights 🙂

  • I'm also loving the mint toms, actually I'm loving everything mint right now, it's just such a pretty colour!

  • I love the color of those pencil skirts. Spring is in the air, can't wait for it to be here.

    that top and yellow skirt. together. need it!


  • I love the pencil skirts! I am trying to decide if as a stay at home mom it is a practical item for me (probably not), but they look so sexy and sophisticated! I especially love the yellow!
    Just found your blog through a link from the Perpetual Student's Wife. Very cool!

  • So pretty, love the pencil skirts! H&M also usually do good pencil skirts in a range of colours, I got a really nice bright pink one from there!


  • Heavy box, zeg dat wel 😀 Dit Toms zijn echt leuk! Wil er wel zo'n paar hebben 😛

  • I've been looking for cheap pencil skirts too–I have such trouble finding them because I've got big thighs and a teensy waist, so they have to be the perfect fit! I'll let you know if I find any for cheap 😛

    That peplum top is DARLING…wish we had those in the USA H&M, I've been looking for a peplum top!

  • Pencil skirts are great and so versatile. I need to start wearing mine more! You can usually find them at thrift stores for very very cheap. That's where I get mine.
