Shirt, hair and Oktoberfest

Last night was the famous Oktoberfest.
A little bit of history: In October 1810 the citizens of Munich were invited to celebrate a royal festivity in fields named Theresienwiese (Theresa's field). As the name of the field was to long the locals abbreviated the name to Wies'n (fields). Horse races marked the close of this event that was celebrated for the whole of Bavaria. The decision to repeat the horse races in the following year gave rise to the tradition of the Oktoberfest.
Over the years the traditional horse racing was no longer held and the agricultural show marked it's place. Later on the visitors could quench their thirst with beer.
Today, the Oktoberfest is still held at the Wies'n and is apparently one of the largest festival in the world. The usual outfit worn at the Oktoberfest is called Tracht, men wear shirts with Lederhosen and women wear a Dirndl.

This year I decided to not get a Dirndl and got my hair done instead. I must say I am happy with how it turned out, but I think the hairdresser didn't fully understand what I wanted and it ended up looking too bridal…
Before heading to the party I had to run some errands in the city so I wore this long shirt with ripped jeans and, of course, my favourite lace-up flats. I teamed this look with my metal box bag for an extra original touch.
This blue & white striped shirt was definitely a great buy and I can't wait to wear it with other outfits as soon as the chilly days start kicking in! 

What were your plans over the weekend?
Many thanks to Crowns & Petticoats for making this lovely crown!

Evening outfit

As much as I miss the summer temperatures, I am glad that the windy and cold days are slowly making their return.
I am running out of inspiration for summer looks. However, I hope that there will still be one or other sunny day, because there is one look I want to show you before I get into my sweater mood.

Today it's all about this leo patterned coat which I love. I combined it with a comfy white sweater, jeans and my favourite pointy heels. I simply adore matching this leo coat with big knits, and I can already picture more outfits...

I wore this outfit for going out to diner on Sunday, nevertheless you can quickly transform this into a day time look: simply change the pumps to sneakers and the clutch to a tote.
Would you like to see a post where I turn a day time look into an evening look? 

Now I am off to finish my luggage because I will be going back to Luxembourg for the weekend. I will be attending the Oktoberfest in Alzingen.

Trend: Velcro flats

Trend: Velcro flats

Don't you hate it when you plan on doing something on a specific day which ends up not working out as foreseen? Well, that's what happened to me: I wanted to upload this post last week, however I ended up being really sick and out of energy.

Anyway it's time to take your velcro flats out as they are making a come back this season. No matter what colour they are, velcro is the new hype.
Despite the fact that I relate the velcro flats to my childhood, I am glad that they are back as they are the perfect shoes to slip into when in a rush. I think they give your outfit a cool and chic look.
Here is a selection of my favourite pairs of velcro flats, from high end to high street.
What do you think about this trend?

Ripped jeans & lace-up flats

Just came back from University, now enjoying a nice cup of Starbucks coffee. Yumm!

Addicted to Zara as I am, I decided to create a look with some pieces from their current collection. If you ask me, I will not be able to tell you if I prefer the shoes or the fluffy cardigan - I love them both.
Unlike to what I was thinking, these shoes are incredibly comfortable. The black fluff ball seems to be my current go-to cardigan as I take it with me everywhere I go.
Let's talk ripped jeans, a very popular trend these past 2 seasons (hopefully ongoing). Ripped jeans are available in any style, size & colour. Due to my weight gain most of my jeans don't fit me anymore, the reason for having to opt for a boyfriend pair. This being said, I still love them and they are the best pair to wear when I don't feel like squeezing into tight leggings. However, ripped jeans can easily look cheap and trashy so I suggest you keep your full look simple and stylish by combining it with a shirt or a t-shirt.
(Do keep in mind that I have been traveling and some of the items you may not be able to find in your local Zara store.)
