THE FASHION FOLIO FOR SACHA

The Fashion Folio for Sacha || Melanophilia.com

After successfully finishing my very first internship as a physiotherapist to be, I decided to have myself a really merry Christmas and treat myself to a pair of black booties. On december 23. Definitely not my brightest decision, as I realised the moment I laid eyes upon the rabid crowd. I still don't know how I got out alive, but all that matters is I got out with these gorgeous lovechildren from Sacha and The Fashion Folio.
Now let me just state the obvious, these babies were 100% worth braving the crowd, as they are super versatile without being basic. The metallic nose makes them a bit festive too, so you could definitely make them work as a party shoe if pumps aren't your cup of tea. (I did!)
Now it's back to ungodly amounts of food for me. Happy holidays everyone!

EXIT STATEMENT, ENTER SIMPLE

Delicate jewelry
1. stackable rings: Vrai & Oro / 2. copper rings: COS / 3. two-toned bracelet: & Other Stories 
4. sterling silver ring: COS / 5. stud earrings: & Other Stories 
6. layered necklaces: Etsy 7. wood and metal necklace: COS / 8. bar earrings: COS 
 9. cube earrings: & Other Stories / 10. necklace: Mango / 11. asymmetric earrings: Zara

With the current influx of good basics in my wardrobe, I felt like it was time to update my jewelry box as well. I've been especially loving this type of simple jewelry, with interesting geometric shapes or combined materials. Pieces that add a small detail to an outfit instead of dragging the attention away from it. These are my favourite finds. But don't let their dainty look fool you, most of these won't hurt your wallet too much! Which are your favourites?

Alas, as you can see, the title of this post refers to the newest addition to my denim collection, rather than my current physique. No worries though. With the start of the new academic year come many resolutions, and getting in shape is one of them. Now I already made a program to follow, but if you happen to know some inspiring fitness blogs, feel free to drop them in the comments. More motivation is always better!
Anyways, here's what I wore to my first day of uni. My love for anything comfy/casual chic is still going strong, so I hope you're not tired of denim, neutrals and sneakers yet. More posts are a-comin'. There, that's another resolution!

breton top: H&M / blazer: Pull&Bear / boyfriend jeans: H&M 
sneakers: Vans Authentics at & Other Stories / bag: & Other Stories / sunnies: ALE-HOP

Nothing but some good ol' basics today, but that doesn't have to make for a boring look! 
I wore this for an afternoon of shopping in Antwerp with the boyfriend. We were basically wearing the same thing in different colours, oh the perks of androgynous dressing… We had a great time shooting these pictures though (don't let the bitchy resting face fool you)!

OUTFIT // COATIGAN

11/30/2013

coat: ASOS // knit: Zara // above the knuckle rings: H&M // kicks: Nike Air Max

Hey guys
Just ordered this coat(igan? Do people really say that?) from ASOS the other day, and I’ve been living in it ever since. Despite the short sleeves and the lack of buttons and lining, it’s actually pretty warm. I’ll probably go for my parka when it starts snowing though, but for now, this one is definitely okay. Very pleased with how the quality turned out!
The turtleneck underneath has kind of an awkward shape to it (it’s a bit huge), but I really like it that way. It feels sooo comfy, like I’m casually wearing my bed to school or something. 
So what do you think? 

P.S.: Please excuse my tragic looking hair! It was raining when we started shooting these photos so it’s a bit damp, I promise it’s not dirty!
