I forgot where I put my contacts …

…So I have to wear my glasses!

You see that bike rider at the end of the street in the first photo? That’s my dad! Haha! Today marks the day my parents found out that I blog. My mom now finally understands why there are a kazillion photos of me on her SD-card. My dad thinks it’s stupid and my littlest sister voluteerd as photographer.  
As for the outfit I’m almost emberassed to say that everything is from H&M, except for the cameo necklace. My friends gave it to me for my 18th birthday. They bought it for me in Venice, the last stop of our Italian tour. In Belgium, a lot of schools give students a chance to visit Italy, mostely by bus. It was so much fun to take on this 10-day trip with my classmates! I’ll never forget the horrible 22 hour busdrive to Pisa though!

Remember this post? I was talking about how madly I wanted to go the the Pukkelpop festival. When I saw the news last night, I couldn’t have been more relieved NOT to have a ticket.
A sudden, but really intens storm turned the grounds into hell. A monsoon set everything under water, the wind destroyed the whole campsite, Trees where uprooted, two big tents, where hundreds of people had taken shelter in, have collapsed.
I wasn’t there. But an awful lot of my friends were. Most of them are ok, but in shock about what happened. One girl has light injuries, but she’s home. I thank God that all my friends are safe & my hart goes out to the families who lost their loves ones.

    well, i was doing this for more than month, but I was superlazy (10-20 buttons a day) But I managed to finish this in one week, when I sewed in every free time πŸ˜€
    + you look extremely gorgeous πŸ™‚

    I'm so sorry to hear what happened at the festival… You must be relieved your friends are fine…

    You kept your blog a secret this long? You should be a secret agent! I showed it to my Boyfriend and Mum and Sister in the first week. πŸ™‚ My Dad still doesn't know about it though but he lives far away.

    Glasses really suit you! This whole outfit does, especially with the Venetian medal! Oh, Venice! πŸ™‚

    Je bril staat je echt goed! En wauw, kon je het zo lang voor je houden? Toen ik 2 jaar geleden begon met bloggen deed ik vooral Beauty en hoefde ik het niet aan iedereen te vertellen, maar nu ik meer over Fashion blog (en je mij dus meer ziet op mijn blog) vertel ik het wel πŸ™‚ Mijn ouders weten het ook al een tijdje alleen snappen ze niet zo goed waarom ik het doe πŸ˜› Je rok is echt leuk!

    πŸ™ I hope your friends (and everyone else) are all okay and get home safely, that is such a scary thing to happen! I'm slightly worried about my parents actually taking an interest in my blog, they are vaguely aware of its existence but I don't think they actually understand what it is. Absolutely love this outfit, and you look amazing in your glasses xo

    Oh wow, I never heard about the whole Pukkelpop festival. That's horrible to hear, but I'm glad your friends are ok. I guess everything happens for a reason, and you not being able to go was a blessing in disguise. …In other news, I am absolutely smitten with your necklace.

  10. 19 August 2011 / 12:40

    Pff, ik ben zo gechoqueerd door het PPdrama πŸ™

    I LOVE glasses. You look so cute in them! And in this outfit. πŸ˜€ I love your taste! Don't be upset your clothes are from H&M, most of mine are from Wal-Mart and Target, but I love 'em just the same if they were high end fashion! πŸ˜‰

    My mother-in-law does know I have a blog and she has one too. ^_^ She's always coming to me for help, figuring this or that out. It's awesome.

    Yet more proof that dads aren't always right!
    Horrendous what happened at Pukkelpop isn't it, so sad.

  19. 19 August 2011 / 16:52

  24. 19 August 2011 / 21:53

    I love your skirt! You look lovely here πŸ™‚

    Sorry to hear about the monsoon – I'm so glad your friends are ok.

  25. 19 August 2011 / 22:59

    Nice outfit and the glasses suit you well.

    And about Pukkelpop, I still feel shocked about what happened there, the images look so hallucinatory and scary. My brother was there and I'm so glad he got safely home and his friends as well, we were so worried at home and the network problems didn't make it any easier for everyone. I was normally going today but now I'm just glad that my brother is okay but I do feel terrible for him and the other people who have experienced such a nightmare. My thoughts go out to the victims and my deepest condelences to the families and friends who have lost their loved ones, may they rest in peace.

    Hehe, my Dad doesn't quite understand my blog either! That's great though that your sister and mother are supportive…Eventually your Dad will come around, too!

    And everytime I see your red hair I just swoon all over again ❀

  29. 20 August 2011 / 04:23

    It seems to be a stroke of fate that you were not there, and I am glad to hear your friends are safe. That's terrible, though.

    Your family didn't know about your blog?! I can't imagine how I'd hide it from mine. At least there is semi support going on.

  30. 20 August 2011 / 05:21

    I'm so glad you didn't go to the festival, so tragic πŸ™

    Your outfit is so cute, I love the stripy skirt a lot!

    I am very sorry for what happened to that festival, but I am glad your friends are ok and you weren't there:)

    Why you are embarrassed for wearing head to toe H&M?? You look lovely! I dress sometimes head to toe Zara!:)
    In the beginning, my dad could not figure out what blogging is:) Oh, and my brother found it silly as well – I think!:)

    Following you on Bloglovin and Google, I would love it if you followed me back!
