I had to… My cardigan matched the leaves

Hema cardigan // AE shirt // H&M pin // Gap jeans // La Strada shoes // Aldo bag 
When we saw this little lane with all the yellow leaves after school we knew it was the perfect place to quickly get some pictures. My friend K, who’s the other part in “we” was appointed photographer and happily played her part. That building building behind me is a highschool and the seniors were having lunchbreak. Awkward stares galore, but who cares. The leaves matched my cardigan, so it was meant to be. Half way down our instant feel-good shoot, an elderly lady with long bleached hair and latex outfit appeared (sounds BAD.) and shared with us some of her fashion-wisdom: “The best poses are the ones where you act naturally”. So smile & be pretty, okay ma’am.

The past weekend was spent in the, for a change, sunny city of Antwerp where I was trying to read my issue of the Brittisch Instyle Mag on the Grand Market, made impossible by an American man who didn’t like his tourgroup and decided to sit next to me for a moment and ramble a bit about the Presidential debates. It was pretty fun! His group went on and at 10 the stores went open and as usual I could not afford the pretty things at American Apparel but I did get lucky at Mango and F21. With a new blazer and my first ever sweater I am now fully ready for fall. Bring it on, weather!

I feel like this post makes absolutely no sense.

    I love this outfit on you, especially that mustard cardi. It goes perfectly with your background. And I just did a photo shoot over the weekend with me playing with leaves too, great minds think alike! 🙂

    This is perfect. I love that little brooch (or large brooch. Whatever, it is beautiful).

    Also that is some good fashion wisdom. How sweet of her.

    You look so cute! Love the fall leaves!

    I think this post makes a load of sense! Love the pairing of the denim shirt with the cardi…unexpected but super cute. And isn't autumn just great. I stayed in Belgium for a month or so (ten years ago, though) and it was in late october-early november…and the fall weather was amazing! I can only imagine how great it is now 🙂

    Perfect place for pictures! You fit in perfectly with your mustard sweater 🙂

    Never would have thought to pair mint and mustard, but those colors look great together! Will have to remember that.

    Well that was nice of the leaves to match your cute yellow sweater! Don't you love it when there are lots of people around when you're trying to take photos (haha)? Anyway, I love this cute fall look!

    I've always liked your cardigan's colour but unfortunately, on me, it doesn't look as cool as on you! Your hair's colour matches it perfectly..lovely british outfit, simple and cute! I'm looking for a bag that I can use everyday, like the one you're carrying..I think I'll visit Il Bisonte website, I'm in love with an orange bag I got to see during Piti Immagine in Florence..Kiss, Francesca

    Haha, don't worry – this post made sense to me, at least. But goodness, I'm drooling over the pretty scenery with all of the yellow! And I love that outfit of yours, of course. 😉
    Also, they recently closed down 2 different American Apparels around my hometown, so naturally, I'm going crazy!

    So much yellow, I love it =) I wished the trees would change color around here! Neat outfit as always.

    I love your jeans. I'm currently looking for the perfect dark wash skinny (not jegging) jeans. How do you like those gap jeans?
