Dress: Louche • Bag: Carpisa • Shoes: via Torfs
Flashback to London, early February. K and I found out about Covent Garden just after we returned from our first visit to this amazing city back in ’10. I missed out on something BIG. I’m the worst researcher-planner when travelling, so when we decided – on a whim – to go back to London, Covent Garden was the first thing on my list of must-sees. And am I glad we went here! Not only is it one of the more cozy places in the city, it’s also very vibrant, with lots of street artists, art-sellers and more quite shopping streets (in comparison to Oxford St.!). In the basement of one of the shops, this dress was waiting for me. As a redhead, I believe a green dress is an absolute must-have and I did not have one. I once saw my green dream dress at DVF, but being way out of my price range I had to let the idea go. And then I dragged K into this darling little shop of a brand that I didn’t know, with lots of pretty jewelry and tiny knickknacks and decorations. The shop assistant kindly told me there was a downstairs area as well. I normally hate it when shop assistants push me but boy, am I glad she did this time! I had to wait all the way until the 24th of April, for the weather to finally heat up and it being appropriate and bearable to wear this pretty number. I look at it as Mother Nature’s gift for my birthday.
Sins last week, A tiny heat wave is resting over Belgium and K and I went out for ice creams multiple times already – I love it! One day I remembered we didn’t have photos of me in this dress for the blog yet – and most importantly, that there was an old kiosk right outside the ice cream shop! Add to that recipe that it was the famous golden hour, and BAM, a huge series of photos and me having a hard time picking the best ones. Therefor… There’s more after the break.
