Outfit: Brussels


A few weeks ago I've been discussing with some friends about how important it is to leave your space from time to time to not feel so constrained and refuel on inspiration. And that's exactly what I did last weekend. On Saturday I took the train to Brussels to visit my friend and fellow blogger Claude who studies there. I've never been in the Belgian capital but it had been on my must-see list for ages. Besides some sightseeing in between, we had mainly planned fashion and blogging related activities though.
On Saturday we went to the Brussels Fashion Days to see the fashion show organised by the Belgian Elle. Even though the show wasn't quite as impressing as the one in Arlon, it was super interesting to see some more Belgian designers, among them also world-famous ones such as Diane von Fürstenberg. After the show we shortly had a look at the various side activities of the Fashion Days, such as the pop-up store or the L'Oreal and MAC hair and makeup booths. According to Claude the Brussels Fashion Days have much improved since last year so I'm curious for the next edition.
Sunday was all dedicated to blogging stuff. First Claude and I shot some outfit pictures for our blogs. I had decided to wear my pinafore dress again, which this time I combined with a cute blouse and more elegant shoes. Afterwards we headed to the meeting of We Are The Models as they wanted to shoot a video for their crowdfunding campaign. It was really nice to meet some Belgian bloggers for once and I can't wait to see the video of us goofing around.
After this inspiring weekend I was happy to take the train back home with another fellow Luxembourgish blogger Christine. This first visit to Brussels surely wasn't my last and next time I will surely also take more shots of this pretty city.

  1. What a great idea, it's always so nice and refreshing to be able to go and explore a different city or travel a bit, if you have the chance - and Brussels is so nice!
    Lovely outfit, as always ♥

  2. That's great that you took that time off! I wish I could just get on a train and visit another city but singapore is so small, exploring like that is not an option! I love your simple outfit and the texture of the pinafore is so gorgeous! I used to wear a lot of pinafores when I was younger but never got any as I got older! Recently I did purchase a super pretty denim one with shorts on the bottom and I'm loving it!

    1. Yes we are really lucky when it comes to traveling here in Europe. I should make us of the good train connections way more often!
      As for the pinafore dress it's really my fashion staple for this autumn, I can think of endless ways to combine it!

    1. It really is a lovely city, you should definitely go there one day if you get the chance. But then again there are so many great places in Europe that are worth discovering ;)

  6. Did you like Brussels? I have been there couple of times in the past but was not impressed.. maybe it is the good time to go and visit again! I followed the FD in Belgium on your snapchat and they looked great!

    1. I really liked Brussels! Maybe it's because I like Belgium and the Netherlands and the Dutch language in general ;) I definitely wanna go back asap as I didn't have the chance to go shopping or discover the city centre all that much. Maybe you should go for the Christmas market? Claude told me they have a really cute one!
      As for the Fashion Days they were really interesting! I can only hope that the ones in Luxembourg this weekend will be equally good...
