Tourist in my own country

BPA3 BPA4 BPA5BPA1 BPA6BPA7

After spending a few busy days in Amsterdam and walking all over the city, I was reminded of the beauty of this amazing city. My sister lives there and every time I go see her, I discover new places and there’s never a dull moment. We had a very nice peaceful lunch at Loetje, which is this very cute restaurant in the middle of the city. It was quite cold that day so we were happy to be sitting in a nice warm room with a cup of tea and a great salmon club sandwich, that tasted as amazing as it looked.
My outfit is just an easy to throw on/easy to wear look, perfect for walking around the city. The camel over the knee coat can be seen everywhere and the pussy-bow blouse is very in at the moment. It also adds a kind of classy touch which I always like!

Grey Day

BPG1 BPG2 BPG4 BPG5BPG6BPG8
There’s a lot going on in this outfit… The Lurex (which is very on trend this season), the deep V-neck, the hat, the shiny, pointed shoes, the gloves, the bag pom,… I feel like the grey just levels it out so that it’s not to overwhelming. Grey just always looks very chic to me and you can’t really go wrong.
At the moment I’m really obsessed with the little faux-fur bag charms or poms. This Topshop one my sister gave me, because she knows I like them so much.
I have different ones, in multiple colors and from different stores. They have a way of spicing up an outfit and making it more fun.
These grey leather gloves I bought in Rome when I was there in the spring and I starting to wear them now that it’s colder. They are genuine Italian leather and the quality is amazing!

Big Bag kind of day

BPR1BPR4BPR8BPR5BPR2BPR6BPR7BPR9

An oldy but goodie: Le Pliage! I’ve had this bag for over 5 years now and I’ve stuffed it completely full many of times, but it’s still alive! She’s been used as a travelbag, schoolbag, handbag, etc. Basically… The handiest bag out there. It’s classy and timeless and very affordable. I’m the kind of girl that carries the strangest things in her bag. Other than the ‘normal’ things it contains, in my opinion all the essentials I might need. Most of them wouldn’t be essentials for most people, but to me they are!
As for the faux fur vest, I’m in love with it. My sister bought it for me (well I had to pay her back so…) and I was very happy with it. Still am! It’s actually quite warm so that’s nice since I’m always cold. Plus it’s wonderfully soft!
The navy jeans I’m wearing are Primark jeans and I have to say, I’m very surprised by how comfortable they are and how nice they fit! They don’t stretch out to much and you can wash them without the getting dull.

Camel coat

It’s officially cold, very cold! Thankfully I got this long camel coat to protect me. I’m sooo in love with it! I think it’s stylish since camel is everywhere this season and it looks chic too. Perfect right?
The length looks great with a heel, but also goes perfectly with a pair of sneakers. I’ll probably do another post some time soon with flat shoes, because… let’s be honest… Flat shoes are just more comfortable than high heels.
The boot cut jeans I got on sale from Zara a few weeks ago. I couldn’t pass them up! I will wear them all throw the fall and winter (still feeling the seventies!), but they are also great for spring and summer. In my opinion, a good find!
White is always a dangerous color, especially for a clumsy girl like me. Therefor a bag is a safer option than a shirt or a dress.
Overall I’m feeling the fall and I’m excited for it!

Odette’s Opera Outfit

BPMO5BPMO3BPMO8BPMO9

Even though my week in Milan was already quiet exhausting, I got invited to go to the famous La Scala of Milan and couldn’t pas up that amazing opportunity.
We went to the closing night of the famous opera ‘The Elixir of Love’ (l’elisir d’amore) which was sooo beautiful!
Before the opera started, I walked around the city and saw the beauty of it by night. It was only my second time in Milan, but it will definitely not be my last.

Little bit of Blue

BPMK4 BPMK1 BPMK2 BPMK3

Just wanted to show you a little more of the beautiful old buildings of Milan. Just walking around I saw so many amazing places. I really wanted to take a few picture with them!
With this little bit of blue, I wanted to add a little pastel to this black outfit. It was quite a grey day so I think black and blue goes great with that.
Plus I matched my ice cream!

Italian Vogue is my life , it’s just everything!

After a great week in Milan, I wanted to show you some of the places I visited and of course tell you a little about the amazing fashion during Milan Fashion Week.
Between the fashionista’s in the streets and visiting all the fantastic places Milan has to offer, it was an unforgettable experience.
Since I’m in love with Italian brands, I had to bring my Gucci’s, Fendi, Ferragamo’s and Prada back to their homeland.
Seeing new trends and meeting new friends… Overall I had the best time ever!
