A warm sweater for a frosty day out in Brussels. I have been wanting to get this outfit on the blog ever since I started posting outfit photos. It’s an old favorite combination, that I used to wear at least once every week during winter when I was in high school. This sweater is six years old, and when I first bought it I was able to wear it as a dress. A few too many hot washes later it serves as the perfect sweater to wear when I’m outside during the day. I have my dad, “the new man”, to thank for that.
This week is also the big week at uni. On Friday I have my first final and I still need to study a few chapters. I am a little behind on my pre-made schedule, but I feel like I’m on top of all my school work. The past weekend I barely left my desk, and apart from a visit with my grandparents there weren’t many exciting moments had. My room is a mess, I still have to pack for my return to uni and I need to bike-ride to the copy center to get my class summaries printed. The latter means I also have to get out of my comfy leggings + sweater outfit. I better get moving.
Have a lovely week!
Good luck on your first final! That sweater looks so cozy, and I have little hearts in my pupils for that bag.

FANTASTIC look!!! U have the best hair babe! Happy New Year! That sweater looks sooo cozy! Amazing how it’s six years old..it’s perfection!
This is such a cute outfit on you, Nikki! I love old, classic pieces 🙂 Good luck with everything coming up this week!
That top is so nice. It’s funny, I was noting that I had a dress that was very similar, and you said it used to be a dress! I sadly donated the dress as I didn’t wear it much (so it hadn’t shrunk yet, only been worn and washed about 4 times). Kinda miss it now, love the neckline! 🙂
Good luck with your final on Friday!

Leuke outfit en mooie locatie! 😉
I’m kind of obsessed with your beautiful bag! I recently just bought my first Kate Spade, and it just made me want to own more of her bags!

This is my first Kate Spade too and I love it a lot. If I ever buy another designer bag, I think it will be a Rebecca Minkoff ^^
